Doyle Brunson WSOP Main Event

Voted Sexiest Poker Player of the Year three years going by’s Jenny Woo, Doyle Brunson appears unmotivated to enter the 2011 World Series of Poker Main Event.

So he may need some motivation.

“I really want him to play,” Woo said, revealing to she has been “secretly encouraging” the Texas Dolly. 

“I have promised a secret surprise for Doyle if he gets his ass to Punta Cana this November (for the Punta Cana Poker Classic).”

Woo’s encouraging words haven’t yet wooed Doyle, at least not yet.

But a close friend may force the youthful 77-year-old.

Doyle Tweeted:

"My friend Dewey Tompko said he was entering me in the ME. If I don't play, they will ante me off. I don't want to play! #veryconfused"

Brunson had previously tweeted that he would not be attending the 2011 WSOP Main Event. 

….Another friend of the Woo, Vanessa Rousso, has teamed up with Jerry Buss, owner of the LA Lakers, and other celebrities for a Rally to End Cancer and No Limit No Profit poker tournament initiative in Las Vegas immediately following the Punta Cana Poker Classic November 18 and 19. may try to make this event.

The Rally to End Cancer Scavenger Cup is one of the most exciting and effective charitable fundraising initiatives providing critical funds for care, treatment and research for people suffering from cancer.

Rousso’s own boyfriend and fellow professional poker player Chad Brown was recently diagnosed with cancer at a very young age.  With the love of his family, friends and Vanessa, Chad has been able to fight this terrible disease.
