Doyle Brunson Goes for 11th WSOP Bracelet Today
Doyle Brunson (at right, napping between hands) may just find that loving feeling for poker again. The poker legend has made his first final table of the 2007 World Series of Poker and is in position today to tie Phil Hellmuth's record 11 WSOP bracelets and possibly bring Hellmuth's ginormous ego down to at least stratospheric levels.
The event is the $10,000 buy-in Pot Limit Omaha event, which if Brunson won would also give the 73-year-old poker legend his first WSOP bracelet ever in a Omaha or Pot Limit event.
Final table play starts up today at 2 pm and Brunson will sit down with 510,000 in chips. Standing in his way as he goes for bracelet number 11 are current big stacks at the table Tommy Ly (1,895,000) and Robert Mizrachi (1,090,000), a player who is more than due to capture his first WSOP bracelet this year after already cashing four times and making two final tables.
Or maybe winning WSOP bracelets just aren't a Brothers Mizrachi thing.
Also at the table are Patrik Antonius (650,000), who may or may not have alopecia, Marco Traniello (420,000), Rene Mouritsen (775,000), Steve Sung (175,000), Stephen Ladowski (360,000) and Jonas "What Kind of Last Name Is" Flug-Entin (445,000).
