Poker legend Doyle Brunson is among the casualties of the World Series of Poker 2012 Main Event, Day 2C.
While other poker pros took the long walk down the hallway of the Rio, including current WSOP Player of the Year leader Phil Ivey, 2006 champion Jamie Gold, 2009 champ Joe Cada and two-time Poker Players Champion Michael “The Grinder” Mizrachi, Brunson was tweeting from his table. The 1976 and 1977 Main Event champion wrote:

“Guy hit a 3 outer with all the chips I’n. 120K pot. Said he finally won a coin flip. Lol”
“Playing with all the kids with their baseball caps on backwards:-)”
“Off for day 2 of WSOP. I have 81,000 to start. Got another scooter also.#offtotheraces”
However, Doyle was ousted late in level 9, when he was on the wrong end of a bad beat.
Approximately 30 percent of the World Series of Poker Main Event field remains after the last batch of players completed their second day of play – meaning – this Main Event is moving quicker than ever. At this rate, the final nine will be decided Tuesday, three days sooner than usual.
There are now 1,783 competitors remaining in the Main Event with Frenchwoman Gaelle Baumann leading the pack as chip leader.
