I've learned from a doctor some time ago that once u have cancer once, ull always be a cancer patient since the chances of it reappearing are very high, almost certain depending on ur age. Hope he beats it again.

More bad news for the poker legend. He’s been struggling for so long with this disease in other forms, he already fights it for 50 years, let’s hope he can keep fighting it for more years. And nice to see how poker figures support him in such a strong way, I bet they are a good reference for him and that he likes to read these words.

He is probably my favorite poker player at all. Its unbelievable how long he is on the top when you realize how much this game changed. There is nothing more to do, but wish him all the best. I hope that he will win this "fight" as he did in past.

If there's one thing that's seen Doyle Brunson survive for over 40 years in the poker world, it's his resilience. News of Doyle's illness came via his Twitter account last night:
"It was malignant. 4 times I have heard that in my life. Chilling way to start the day. Squamas cell cancer, nothing to worry about. #yeahright."

Sad Who is Brunson?

Doyle Brunson is one of the oldest poker player alive and has won a lot of money playing over the years. Doyle has books about learning the game, he's been on High Stakes Poker and is recognized as the grandfather of poker. If you don't know who he is then you've not done much to bve invol;ved in poker for being 46 years old. Look his name up on your search engine and you'll go to school on who he is.

Nice one Greenmohave, Doyle is a living legend! gimini either learn some more or grow up, posting bs like that on such a story to either earn 10points is so low. Good luck Doyle and your family, I hope to see you back up again soon and playing in the big games you became famous for.

Fear not mates. Doyle Brunson is the God Father of poker and he did not become so by just laying low and folding it in. His is a fighter and is going to fight this new cancer tooth and nail. i look forward to seeing him in his next WSOP tournament.
Still just in case I will prey for him, but i'm not sure God will listen to me as I am probable not his favorite person. I hate kissing ass even if it is a holy father.

I think the only good thing about this is that this kind of cancer can be pretty much totally cured with good medical attention.

Lets hope that he will be good and we'll see him more on tv poker Big Smile
