WSOP Executive Director Ty Stewart just gave a welcome speech and talked about World Series of Poker legend Doyle Brunson. Stewart then revealed a bust of the ten-time WSOP bracelet winner that was recently commissioned.
"Think of it as the first step in a more tangible Poker Hall of Fame," Stewart said as the room cheered. Stewart then indicated that he had a seat card for "Texas Dolly" in today's field even though Brunson had indicated earlier in the summer that he wouldn't be playing any events.
He changed his mind and played the $50,000 Poker Players' Championship, so here's hoping he gives it one more go in another WSOP Main Event.
