This is a discussion on Doyle Brunson To Undergo Cancer Surgery within the online poker forums, in the Poker News and Events section; He seems to be keeping a positive attitude and stated, "Luckily itís on my head and everybody knows Iím hardheaded.Ē
I hope we will see him soon in a big live tournament.
That's probably less likely, regardless of the outcome - he's been scaling back his tournament play for years now and just focusing on the cash games, doesn't like the grind of long days at tournament tables any more. And fair enough too.
Thoughts and best wishes are with him, true legend of the game.
GL Doyle you were always one of my favorites of the original poker guard to get fame , always seemed like a genuine nice guy that would just be fun to play with and be around . I really hope everything works out great and he can continue to be one of the best ambassadors for the game it has ever had !
Another part of the problem is that when elderly people experience trauma, and surgery is a form of trauma, it increases the likelihood of dementia. I hope Doyle not only beats cancer but suffers no adverse effects from the surgical procedure. He remains necessary.
soglad to hear that everything went ok for doyle asi have always been a fan of his and his favorite hand 7 2 off.i do have a tendency to play it sometimes only because of doyle.just glad he has made it through this dangerous time.
So sad about Doyle Brunson. I am thankful for men like him laying the blueprint for poker. Men like him kept the game going and also contributed to the growth of the game that i fell in love with. I wish him a speedy recovery and may God bless him and his family
