Every year before the World Series of Poker, the poker world has many of the same discussions: Which young online pros just turned 21? Who will go for the most points in Daniel Negreanu’s 25K fantasy league? Will the Rio have an(other) outbreak of Legionnaire’s Disease or will there be any dead poker players from hypothermia?

And of course, will poker legend Doyle Brunson be playing this year?

With the WSOP’s upcoming online-only schedule, many of these topics are irrelevant – but we decided to look into whether or not Doyle is likely to play now that he can do so from the comfort of his home.
