“Texas Dolly” Brunson Signs with WPT Alongside Brad Owen, Andrew Neeme, and DJ Aoki
A few weeks ago, the World Poker Tour announced that they’re adding famed poker vlogger Andrew Neeme to their roster of ambassadors. In that short period of time that passed, they managed to outdo themselves once again.
Now, they have just revealed that 10-time WSOP gold bracelet winner, 2-time WSOP Main Event champion, WPT Legends of Poker winner Doyle Brunson is joining as their newest brand ambassador.
According to the press release, the legendary “Texas Dolly” will be attending live World Poker Tour events. The players in the events will have a chance to meet and talk to one of the undisputed legends of the game.
Doyle Brunson’s influence on poker history is undeniable. He was part of the posse of traveling gamblers who actually introduced what is now by far the most popular poker game in the world, Texas Hold’em, to Las Vegas casinos in the 1960’s. He wrote the first bestseller poker strategy book, Super/System, in 1979.
He managed to win two back-to-back WSOP Main Events in 1976 and 1977. He’s currently tied in second place in the all-time bracelet winners' list with Phil Ivey and Johnny Chan, who all have won 10 bracelets. He’s only behind Phil Hellmuth with 16 titles.
Adam Pliska, the CEO of the World Poker Tour had this to say about their latest illustrious signing:
“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.”
Previously, the aforementioned Neeme, Brad Owen, and DJ Steve Aoki were also singed by WPT to promote the brand. The next stop of the WPT’s Main Tour will be at The Venetian in Las Vegas, Nevada between July 12 and July 17.

Doyle Brunson Also Thinking About Playing the WSOP Main Event
Even though the Texas Dolly had a standing ovation bidding him farewell at the final table of the $10,000 NL 2-7 Lowball Championship at the 2018 WSOP, he’s not actually done playing.
In fact, he just posted on Twitter that he’ll likely jump into this year’s WSOP Main Event at Bally’s and Paris Las Vegas.
Brunson played in last year’s Main Event as well, only 7 months ago. Alas, he didn’t make it into the money and got knocked out on Day1. We all wish him better luck this year.
