Cool Smile The legendary Doyle Brunson has more years to come Smile I really thought we wouldn't see him again at a poker table.

But he has always said it himself: He will play untill he no longer can. That's why we haven't seen him in the last 2 years or so, he was too sick. Didn't know it was his 6th cancer though. Now he will be back!

Go Texas dolly!!!

He has probably more will and luck than any of us here alone or combined tbh. Altough skin cancer is highly treatable if they recognize them on time.

This is no surprise!!If he can keep winning at the poker tables for fifty years then he wasn't going to give up when fighting cancer!
Have to say I am impressed with the medical care he received in the US I doubt he would have managed that feat if he had cancer 6 times in the UK.

The guy was an all american track star, maybe the greatest poker player ever to live. Could've played in the NBA for the Lakers if a knee injury hadn't befelled him.

What's Cancer got that this guy can't handle? Nothing he's more than Chuck Norris. Chuck Norris hasn't beaten cancer 6 times, Doyle MF'ing Doyle that's who's beaten it!

Good luck on your recovery Doyle and can't wait to see you back on the felt soon!
