Doyle Brunson Continues to Hold His Own at WSOP Main Event

Slipping a few notches to the lower tier of the 70’s in terms of chip counts, the Texas Dolly, Doyle Brunson, was still among the more successful players kicking off Friday’s play of the 2013 World Series of Poker Main Event.  77 out of 649 ain’t too shabby after all.

The soon-to-be 80-year-old Brunson had everyone mesmerized with his top 40 chip lead yesterday.  The poker icon had originally suggested he would not be playing in this year’s event.  Not only has he been playing, Brunson is knocking them dead up to this point.  Close to 6000 players have already busted before the Texas Dolly.

It was Matthew Huey experiencing perhaps his 15 minutes of fame with the overall chip lead Friday afternoon.  To date, Huey has only had 4 cashes in sanctioned live tournaments.

Elsewhere, the first ever World Series of Poker Europe Main Event winner Annette Obrestad was also holding her own among the top 60 chip leaders.  Obrestad is a Lock Poker pro
