We recap some stories you may have missed including the High Stakes Poker line-up and Phil Ivey like we have never seen him before.
Doyle’s rungood continues
Positive news today as poker legend Doyle Brunson has confirmed he has beaten cancer for the 4th time in his life.
It seems you really cannot keep the 87-year-old down, who just last month was challenging Doug Polk to a heads-up mixed game challenge.
Thanks to everyone that sent good wishes and prayers over my operation for melanoma. Got an all clear from my doctor today. That was my 4th win🙏 against that cancer. Stood on the 91st psalm, my favorite.

High Stakes Poker lineup
The relaunch of High Stakes Poker is just a week away and now we know the first lineup.
Jean-Robert Bellande, Rick Saloman, Bryn Kenney and Tom Dwan headline the first episode at a tough table.
No word on the stakes yet but a previous promotional video suggested that there were $500,000 stacks at the tables.
Drumroll please!!! 🥁🥁🥁 High Stakes Poker Season 8 Episode 1 lineup:

Ivey vs Iverson
We didn’t see this one coming, possibly the most guarded man in poker shows his silly side in a new video.
Phil Ivey and NBA star Allen Iverson challenge each other in a series of prop bets to promote a new poker room.
Now that Ivey has his court troubles behind him, perhaps we are going to see a lot more of him doing fun things like this in 2020?

We are a bit late to this one but it is too good not to share, Ben Spragg showing why he is one of the funniest streamers in poker (that title also goes to whoever edited the video):
