• Doyle Brunson Leaves DoylesRoom.com

    Collateral damage? Maybe, but it has been announced that Doyle Brunson will be leaving the online poker site that bears his name, DoylesRoom.com. It seems in the wake of the FBI indictments and “Black Friday”; Brunson is leaving the site but has mentioned a possible return when the United States fully legalizes online poker.

    According to a DoylesRoom representative, “Doyle Brunson was a sponsored pro of DoylesRoom and he has left his endorsement contract. We have purchased his image and likeness and are allowed to continue to use those. Doyle will still continue to play in the Bounty tournament.” This though is in contrast to what Doyle told Gambling911 on Friday.

    According to the Gambling911 exclusive;

    “Reluctantly, I have decided to terminate my endorsement contract with Doylesroom.com. 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.”

    No word yet as to how this will affect the members of the pro poker team the DoylesRoom Brunson 10 going forward but we do know UB and Absolute Poker dismissed their pros last Monday. According to WSOP Vice President Ty Stewart said this week,

    “Some operators have instructed their sponsored players to remove their logos when playing U.S. events. Some sites have terminated their pros… We don’t expect to see any of these logos show up at the event and these televised tables.”

    As of this writing, there has been no announcement made on the DoylesRoom site.
