Epic Poker League, a league that only qualified players with a membership card can take part in, is now almost one year old and so far it has been a success - something that very few people thought earlier this year. The conditions to enter the EPIC Poker League main event make sure that only the best poker players in the world can take part.
However, those conditions don't apply to Doyle Brunson, who hasn't taken part in any of the 2 EPL main events played so far. On Tuesday, Doyle Brunson was offered the first lifetime membership card by the EPL, which means that he can enter any future Main Event no mater how his poker career is going.
However, we will have to wait and see whether or not Brunson will take part in the EPL Main Event. In the past few years, Brunson has played very few tournaments due to the fact that he's getting older and simply don't have the same energy to travel and grind tournament poker as he used to.
"As I'm getting older, these tournaments are getting too hard to come through," Brunson said. "It's probably not worth it to me anymore to really go on the tournament grind, so I don't plan on playing a whole lot of tournaments the rest of my life. I much prefer to play cash games." Doyle Brunson said in an interview after receiving the EPL lifetime membership card.
