Doyle Brunson Seeks Eleventh WSOP win today

Brunson Can Tie Hellmuth With Victory Today
Coming into this year’s WSOP, Doyle Brunson was in a three-way tie with Johnny Chan and Phil Hellmuth, Jr. for the most World Series of Poker wins with ten each. Who would be the first player to win gold bracelet Number 11 was one of the major storylines at the start of the World Series.

Two weeks ago in Event No. 15, Hellmuth became the first player to reach the 11-win milestone.

Today Doyle Brunson is a finalist in this afternoon’s $10,000 buy-in pot-limit Omaha world championship, and begins his quest for a record-tying eleventh WSOP gold bracelet victory.

Two-time world poker champion Doyle Brunson remains at the top of the game—cash games and tournaments alike—despite his age and the huge fields of competitors.

The Final Table Looks Tough; the Road Won’t be Easy

Down to the final nine players, Brunson arrives fifth in the chip count with 510,000. The current chip leader is Tommy Ly with 1.8 million. Other finalists include Robert Mizrachi, Rene Mouritsen, Patrik Antonius, Jonas Flug-Entin, Marco Traniello, Stephen Ladowsky, and Steve Sung.

Nothing against the rest of the filed, but I’m sentimental; and I’m rooting for Doyle. Aren’t you?
