Flashback Friday - Doyle Brunson Wins His 10th Career WSOP Bracelet
Ten-time WSOP bracelet winner and two-time Main Event
Champion Doyle Brunson had successful cancer surgery earlier
this week. To celebrate this great news, we take a look back at his
tenth bracelet victory in this edition of Flashback Friday. At the 2005 World Series of Poker, Doyle made the final
table of the $5,000 Short-Handed NL Hold'em Event, now
referred to as Six-Max. It was a stacked final consisting of
Jason Lester, Ayaz Mahmood, Layne Flack, Scotty Nguyen and

Doyle Brunson to Have Cancer Surgery March 2nd
As some of you already know, Doyle Brunson is once again
facing cancer surgery. This time it is for a melanoma
discovered on his head a few weeks ago. Now it appears that there may be three other areas on his

tested to see if they are indeed cancerous.

Oh, WSOP banner staff. How we love to make fun of you. In
case you haven't heard, there was a small problem with Ryan

Bracelet or Millions? Dwan is Taking the Money
Every year at the WSOP Main Event, the question is always
asked whether you would rather have the money or the WSOP
bracelet. Until recent years, the answer was largely "I want
the bracelet. " Now it is shifting more to the "give me the
$8 Million. "
So far at this year's WSOP, two faces that have not been
seen at the tables are Tom Dwan and Doyle Brunson.
What Was Doyle Thinking?
I'd really like to know what Doyle Brunson is thinking. I'm sure that many of you by now have read Doyle's recent
Blog post but for those of you that haven't, he essentially
says while Howard Lederer and Chris Ferguson made "terrible
mistakes," he doesn't hold any ill-will towards them and
thinks they should be welcomed back into the poker
community. The fact that Doyle comes out supporting his friends doesn't
surprise me. The fact he's doing so now during a time where
he should almost expect to take major heat for his words

Doyle Brunson made a comment earlier today that he was
playing with a couple of professional poker players who say
they no longer enjoy the game and that it's all about the

professionals and wannabe poker professionals. Somewhere along the line in the quest for trying to become
rich and famous, they have stopped enjoying the game of

The 2011 WSOP Main Event officially kicked off on Thursday
and contrary to his statement made on Twitter during the
$50,000 Poker Player's Championship, Doyle was indeed in

It is very possible we have seen the end of an era in
