The 2022 World Series of Poker is going on as we speak, but the world of poker is not exclusively inside Bally’s and Paris Las Vegas. In this version of “In Case You Missed It (ICYMI),” we will look at some of the other news that has come to the fore.

It is well-worth a read for both those who know nothing about the two-time WSOP Championship Event winner and those who think they know it all.
In the article, written by Joe Levin for the July 2022 issue of the magazine, the entire life of Brunson is relived. The good moments – including his history at the WSOP and the rough and tumble climb to that level – and the bad – the death of his daughter Doyla – are covered in the article, among other things.
