Doyle Brunson Backs Out Of Playing In 2022 WSOP

Poker Hall of Famer Said Recently He Would Attend Series


Doyle Brunson said on June 21 that he was likely playing in the 2022 World Series of Poker. However, that has changed.

On Thursday, the 10-time WSOP bracelet winner said that he won’t participate, due to the advice of his physician. The $10,000 buy-in WSOP starts on July 3.

Brunson, 88, saw his last tournament score at the 2018 WSOP. He finished in sixth in a $10,000 No-Limit 2-7 Lowball Draw event for $43,963.

His last in-the-money finish in the Main Event was a 409th place in 2013 for $28,063.

While he plans to skip the entirety of the WSOP this year, Brunson slows little signs of slowing down. He recently signed on to be a brand ambassador with the World Poker Tour. Brunson also continues to play in high-stakes cash games.

In May, the studio Radar Pictures secured the rights to an upcoming movie about Brunson.
