Cool The legendary Doyle Brunson has more years to come 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!

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.
This man really has my respect both professionally and as a person too, and yes as mentioned above beating cancer one time is hell of a miracle now 6 times well I have no words to describe this... long live Texas Dolly
