Poker Break for Doyle Brunson Post Surgery

It was recently announced that Doyle Brunson will be taking a break from poker for a bit while he recovers from dental surgery that he will be undergoing today. The poker legend announced he was going to withdraw from the PartyPoker Premier League IV as well as miss out on other tournaments since he is undergoing surgery.

Doyle announced his withdrawal from the competition and he explained his decision with the following statement: “I’m supposed to play in the Premier League tournament that is being filmed at the M Casino here in Vegas. It is the most widely watched TV show in Europe, with a $100,000 buy-in. That would be great exposure for DoylesRoom but there is no way I’ll be 100% recovered from all that dental surgery so I’ll have to cancel.”

Doyle also commented that he was exhausted after he returned from the Affiliate Conference 2010 in London and along with today’s surgery he knows that he needs to take time and recovery fully. So Doyle took to his blog to explain the situation. He stated that there is no point in competing unless you are one hundred percent. Brunson commented that one should feel good physically as well as mentally to have a chance to win.

The poker pro has decided to rest up until the 2010 World Series of Poker which is set for May. Doyle commented that his gut feeling is telling him that he should ‘chill out’ until the WSOP begins and then try to have a big series. Brunson will be missing the WPT event at the Commerce Casino, the Celebrity tournament as well as the NBC Heads Up Championship and a PokerStars TV tournament while he recovers from surgery.
