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.
