Doyle Brunson

If you would ask this field; Who would you most want to see win this event besides yourself, there's a good chance many players will pick Doyle Brunson. The Godfather of Poker is still in this event on day two, and he just took down a pot in No Limit Hold'em.

No Limit Hold'em

Brunson raised to 2,500 from the cutoff and Jeff Lisandro called on the button. Hasan Habib defended his small blind, after which Andrew Brown called from the big.

The flop came down {9-Spades}{5-Spades}{2-Spades} and all four players checked. The turn was the {8-Spades} and Habib lead out for 4,000. Brown quickly folded and Brunson grabbed some chips. He raised it up to 14,000 and Lisandro folded right away. Habib gave it some thought but also folded giving Brunson the pot.

Brunson cashed the first edition of this event back in 2006 when he finished in eight place cashing $274,560. His last World Series of Poker cash dates back to 2009 when he finished seventh in the $10,000 Seven Card Stud hi/lo event for $62,234.
