Doyle Brunson Quits World Series of Poker

Poker Hall of Famer and ten-time World Series of Poker bracelet winner Doyle Brunson announced on his Twitter page that he would not participate in this year’s US$10,000 buy-in no-limit Texas Holdem World Championship. After he was knocked out of the US$50,000 buy-in Players’ Championship, Brunson tweeted, ““Busted…Total nightmare…Goodbye WSOP…No main event for me. Maybe the DOJ will stake me.”

 

The “DOJ” in Brunson’s message refers to the US Department of Justice, which seized the domain names of several online poker sites on 15 April. The seizure date became known in the poker world as “Black Friday”, a reason to which Brunson attributed that he has “lost a lot of passion for the game” in another message.

 

DoylesRoom.com, an online poker site which Brunson had been promoting, was not seized as part of  “Black Friday”. However, US officials did seize the domain on 26 May as part of a follow-up investigation. Shortly before prosecutors announced the seizure, Brunson began appearing at poker events without the sponsoring site’s patch on his signature cowboy hat.

 

Last week, Brunson intimated that he may retire from tournament poker. At 78 years old, the long hours and multiple days of major poker tournaments have taken their toll on the poker legend. Despite his poor performances at recent World Series events, Brunson stated that he was not having money issues and that he would continue to play cash games during the WSOP festivities.

 

“(I d)idn’t say I was quitting live poker…geeeez,” he wrote in response to speculation from poker fans.
