Doyle Brunson Looking to Chase an 11th WSOP Bracelet

Doyle Brunson Looking to Chase an 11th WSOP BraceletIn 2011, Doyle Brunson announced his retirement from the World Series of Poker, but by 2013 the “Godfather of Poker” couldn’t resist participating in the prestigious tournament series once more. That year he then made a deep run at the $10,000 World Championship, eventually finishing in 409th place for $28,063, and that really was that for the octogenarian, with the last of his 10 gold bracelets having been captured back in 2005.
However, Doyle has never lost his love for the poker tournament showcase which take place in his hometown each year, and with the WSOP gearing up for its May 30th launch in Vegas, rumors have started circulating that he was now considering going after a 11th gold bracelet. Poker writer Will Shillibier subsequently reached out to Doyle for a response, to which he replied:
“I actually am thinking about playing all the 10k events. Depends on my wife’s health issues.”
All being well, then, poker fans may be treated to seeing the 2-time Main Event champion in action, or even playing against him in the tournament, and already some are already getting excited by the prospect, with Darren Johnson posting the following tweet on Brunson’s account:
“Awesome to hear @TexDolly could be around WSOP this year. Maybe he can run over my foot on his scooter that’s how I met him back in 2005.”
Taking time to reply, Doyle fired back with:
“I’m afraid you are one of many. I keep my scooter in rabbit mode, this year I’ll put it in turtle mode.”
Phil Hellmuth currently tops the WSOP list with 14 bracelets, with Brunson, Johnny Chan, and Phil Ivey all tied in second place with 10 a piece. While Ivey’s last bracelet was captured in 2014, Chan’s won his last one back in 2005, and like Brunson who won back-to-back main Events in 1976 and 1977, also shares the honor of being a 2-times Main Event winner, having won back to back tournaments himself in 1987 and 1988.
