Doyle Brunson has signed a deal to become the latest World Poker Tour (WPT) brand ambassador. The 10-time WSOP bracelet winner follows superstar DJ Steve Aoki in joining the long list of big names representing the prestigious live poker series.


There from the Beginning

Doyle Brunson has been around poker long enough to have seen the start of all major live poker series, including the World Series of Poker and WPT. In fact, the Poker Hall of Famer racked up the biggest score on his record back in 2004 in the WPT Legends of Poker tournament for $1,198,290.

Adam Pliska, World Poker Tour CEO, said: “Doyle has been a part of the World Poker Tour from the very beginning. I was there for his WPT Legends of Poker victory in 2004 when he joined the WPT Champions Club, and to also be here to welcome him to the WPT family after all this time feels surreal.”


Will Doyle Brunson Play in the 2022 WSOP After All?

Almost as soon as the 2022 WSOP kicked off, high-profile COVID-19 cases were being announced on Twitter, stoking fears of some kind of clampdown by the organisers. David “ODB” Baker and Phil Hellmuth were both victims forced to miss major events.

Seeing what was happening, Doyle Brunson elected to announce he would not be playing in the series after all, citing two unvaccinated family members at home as the reason.

Now, it seems, “Texas Dolly” has had a change of heart and is chomping at the bit to at least play in the Main Event, providing that the COVID situation remains under control.
