The Main Event of the World Series of Poker starts Thursday and it looks like Phil Ivey won't be the only big name missing from the starting line up.
Doyle Brunson tweeted yesterday evening “No main event for me.maybe the DOJ (Department of Justice) will stake me.” In response to a mountain of questions Brunson later tweeted that money wasn't the issue, rather that he'd “lost a lot of passion for the game since Black Friday”.The ten-time bracelet winner hasn't had the greatest time at this year's World Series, failing to go deep in any event. His early departure from the $50,000 Players' Championship prompted this tweet, “Busted... Total nightmare... Goodbye WSOP” followed a few hours later by “And BTW, Murphy's Law is in full force "If anything can go wrong, it will." At least it seems to be for me, but be careful for a few days:-)”.The 78-year-old quashed rumours that he would be giving up live poker altogether though. In response to a tweet asking why Black Friday had affected him so much Brunson's response was, “Maybe because I'm getting old..... Mother Nature is a bitch!”Keep up to date with all the news from the poker world by following us on Twitter and Facebook.
