Doyle Brunson To Take A Poker Break Following Surgery

Doyle Brunson To Take A Poker Break Following SurgeryDoyle Brunson has announced his withdrawl from the star studded PartyPoker Premier League IV after having to undergo 6 hours of dental surgery Monday. Following his announcement, the 10 times WSOP bracelet poker legend explained:
“I’m supposed to play in the Premier League tournament that is being filmed at the M Casino here in Vegas. It is the most widely watched TV show in Europe, with a $100,000 buy-in. That would be great exposure for DoylesRoom but there is no way I’ll be 100% recovered from all that dental surgery so I’ll have to cancel.”
Doyle Brunson also admitted to feeling exhausted after flying back from the Affiliate Conference (LAC) 2010 in London, and combined with today’s surgery has decided that some recuperation time will be necessary.
Doyle Brunson hasn’t eased up much over his busy poker career, and was planning on playing at the upcoming (WPT) L.A. Poker Classic, the PokerStars North American Poker Tour (NAPT), and the National Heads-Up Poker Championship. However, Doyle has decided to put these tournaments on hold too and conserve his strength for the 2010 WSOP.
The WSOP begins in May but in all likelyhood, it may not be until the 28th of May that we will see Brunson in action as he enters the $50,000 buy-in Player’s Championship event, which replaces the $50,000 HORSE event.
Writing on his blog, Brunson said:“There is no use playing unless you are at your best. The competition has gotten so good you need to feel good physically as well as mentally to have a chance to win. My gut feeling is just chill out until the WSOP and try to have a big series.”
Finally, the 76 year old poker legend quipped, “Could it be my age is finally catching up to me?” 
The staff here at would like to wish Doyle a speedy recovery.
