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 Riess' WSOP Champion's banner. Can you spot it? That's right folks.

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?

Doyle and Howard 430x238
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 does.

Doyle Enjoying Poker 200x300
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 money for them. He then proceeded to tell them to seek another profession. Sadly, this seems to be a growing trend among many 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 poker[[sitetree_link,id=743]].

Doyle Day 1a 319x300
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 this one. In fact, Doyle even gave the customary "Shuffle Up and Deal" call to kick off the Main Event. How did this come to fruition? Apparently Dewey Tomko is the person that convinced him to play.  Doyle said on Twitter yesterday: TexDolly Stop it.

2011 WSOP Commentary - Is This Really the End for Doyle ?

1 5 July 2011 , By: compncards
It is very possible we have seen the end of an era in tournament poker. Before the beginning of the 2011 WSOP $50,000 Poker Player's Championship, Doyle Brunson stated the following on Twitter: TexDolly @PokerLawyer *Thanks, you might be watching my last tournament. If I don't play well (up to my standards), I may retire from tournament poker. * Doyle made it to Day 2 of the event, but failed to make Day 3.
