Doyle Brunson Cancer

Legendary poker player and the face behind DoylesRoom.com, Doyle Brunson, is free of cancer.

The Texas Dolly, as he is so affectionately called, has learned that a biopsy on a skin lesion has come up negative for melanoma. 

“EVERYTHING CLEAR!!” he declared on his Twitter page just moments ago.  “One more bullet I ducked in my life. All of a sudden I feel great!! Take that melanoma:-)”

Surgery took three hours and caused Brunson to miss a big poker game last week. 

In 1962, doctors determined that Brunson had cancer that spread from his neck to the rest of his body, declaring it “incurable”.  An operation to prolong his life, however, revealed no trace of the cancer could be found. 

Brunson has attributed his cure to the prayers of friends of his wife and their correspondence with Kathryn Kulman, a self-proclaimed Christian faith healer.

The two-time World Series of Poker main event winner has had addition brushes with death, including surviving an armed robbery.

Doyle Brunson is often the mainstay of celebrity death pools with “Doyle Brunson Dead” a regularly searched item leading to the Gambling911.com website where we are ranked among the top 5 in Google Search. 

Brunson’s cancer scare comes just days after fellow poker star Chad Brown was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer.  His wife, poker champ Vanessa Rousso, announced the news on her Twitter page after a 10 pound tumor was removed from his abdomen.
