Doyle Brunson Readying For WSOP 2013 Apperance

Doyle Brunson Readying For WSOP 2013 ApperanceThroughout his illustrious career, Doyle Brunson has won 10 WSOP bracelets including 2 Main Events, his first coming in 1976 and his last in 2005 at the $5k NL Shorthanded Texas Hold’em event for $367,800. Since then, Brunson has cashed a further 10 times at the WSOP, including a 10th place finish at the $10k World Championship PLO event for $123,967, but at the age of 79, Brunson has slowly been calling time on his WSOP career and recently announced:
“Afraid I am finally gonna give in to Father Time and pass on tournament play at WSOP. #toomanyhours”.
At the same time, Brunson announced he would be concentrating on playing lucrative cash games, instead, (see recent photo opposite) but after enduring some marathon sessions, Texas Dolly seems like he may be ready to give WSOP 2013 a go after all. As Brunson tweeted this week:
“Played cash games for 11 hours today. Maybe I could sit the long tournament hours.”
Before following up on Monday with: “I possibly could play the 2-7 event and the 50k Horse in this years WSOP. I haven’t set foot in the Rio yet.#cashgamestoogood.”
For the moment, however, it seems like Doyle Brunson is happy to mull over only the possibilty of making an apperance, and fans will now have to wait until at least Sunday to find out whether he will be entering the $10,000 2-7 event, or Sunday June 30th, for the $50,000 Poker Players Championship.
In the meantime, Doyle’s fans on twitter have reacted to the WSOP legends comments with great enthusiasm, with one tweet suggesting; “@TexDolly $111,111 one drop tournament for you Doyle?” and another stating; “@TexDolly Even if it’s just those 2 events. Do it for us :)”
Born in 1933, Doyle Brunson is a living legend of the game, with his early poker exploits stretching back to dangerous time when illegal games were run by criminals and the chances of having a gun pulled on you and being robbed was all just part of the course.
The Poker Hall of Fame inductee also pioneered attempts to demystify poker after publishing his book ‘Super/System’ which gave ordinary players an insight into the way experts played, whilst also helping to drag poker away from iniquitous dens to the professionals standing it enjoys today.
