HEADLINE: Doyle Brunson Ends Contract with

Doyle Brunson will no longer be affiliated with the online poker site, according to a report on a gambling news website.

The decision to leave the site that bears his name obviously calls into question the future of the site. Brunson apparently did not want to be affiliated with a U.S.-facing site after Black Friday, in which PokerStars, Full Tilt Poker, Absolute Poker and came under fire from the U.S. Department of Justice.

Here’s what Doyle Brunson told (read the entire story here):

Reluctantly, I have decided to terminate my endorsement contract with It pains me to leave at this time. I have aspirations of reentering the online poker business when the United States Government passes legislation, that officially legalize online poker sites. Doylesroom management has decided to continue to serve U.S. customers. Although they believe they have the right to market the name Doylesroom and to use my name and likeness for a period of time, I have asked them not to. Good luck-Shuffle up and deal.

After that news was broken, Card Player caught up with the 10-time World Series of Poker bracelet winner at the World Poker Tour Championship. Brunson, however, had no comment. Read their report here. The 77-year-old legend was wearing clothing at the tournament.

The departure comes just a few days after rolled out a new software client (more on that here). The site had recently changed to a new network, Yatahay.

Known for his tweets and blog posts, Brunson has been quiet on the matter of leaving the site. On Twitter just two days ago, he posted the following, with no sense that his departure was imminent: “Doyle Gets Facelift: Upgrades DoylesRoom Software.RT He has needed a facelift for quite some time, but we haven’t had heart to tell him.” His tweets on Saturday only dealt with the WPT Championship. You can read his Twitter feed here.
