It's hard to believe it's been almost a month since I wrote a blog. Time has literally flown by during the WSOP and I don't believe how well I've held up through it. I've played a lot of events, done interviews and autograph sessions and even played a few cash poker games. Thank the Lord for these Brunson genes.

I owe lots of thank you's around Vegas. Harrahs, Nolan Dalla, Jeffrey Pollack all bent over backwards to accommodate our seminars with Mike Caro.  These seminars were a huge success and we are talking about doing more at the Harrah's properties across the country. The Wynn and Encore were unbelievable helping with our VIP party and the Doyle Brunson party. I don't know how the other WSOP parties were, but the Blush club at the Wynn was totally packed. You could barely move and everyone had a great time. Where was Jenny Woo?

I was really impressed with the number of poker players that came to the party. Phil Hellmuth, Jen Harman, Gavin Smith, Mike Matusow, Daniel Negreanu, Jeffrey Lisandro, Devilfish and many more came by even though they had commitments to be elsewhere. Thanks Guys!

I guess I'm going to play the WSOP on July 4th. No particular reason just the way my schedule worked out. Looks like it is going to be tons of players and it is a great sign our economy is getting better. I'm going try my best in the Main Event but it is tough having a bullseye painted on your chest. All these youngsters try to take me out and it's hard for your hands to be good every time.

All my pals from DoylesRoom are leaving to go back to Costa Rica. There are lots of new faces to go along with the old ones and things are really rolling down there.

I gotta go to a book signing at the Rio. I'll try to keep up with the blog.
