It seems like Doyle Brunson has no plans to retire from poker as he continue playing at the highest stakes and contributing to the game in many different ways. One of the ways Doyle Brunson is still contributing to the scene is through his blog where anyone can follow his daily life and poker experiences. In his latest blog post one can read some thoughts of his regarding the quality of today's PROS compared to old ones.
"Are today's players better than the old timers? Nah, different but not better. The truth is some of these "pros" play so bad it's hard to lose."
Doyle also writes that he thinks he's lucky to still be able to play so well against today's PRO's even though he thinks that many PRO's including himself tend to lose at least part of their game after reaching the age of 50.
"Time marches on. That's something every poker player has to be aware of. I try to monitor my play regularly because of my age. I'm lucky to still be hanging in there but as I've always said, poker players tend to lose at least part of their game after reaching the age of 50. Even though I won 16 straight in TV cash games, I seem to have reverted to a defensive style of play that I'm not comfortable with. Even though the way your opponent plays dictates the way you play, I've found myself not following my instincts as I've always done."
