Lame Layne Flack Attack on Doyle
The clown Layne Flack accuses Doyle Brunson of buying WSOP bracelets in the old days.
This is the background: WSOP organizers are considering skipping rebuy events for the 2009 series, as they give pros the chance to "buy a bracelet".
Layne Flack, who happened to win an Omaha rebuy at the 2008 WSOP, is furious about this and said the following in an interview:
"That's bullsh--. It's not like there is no play. The field is huge."
"You want to talk about buying a bracelet? Let's talk about Doyle's bracelet when there were eight people in the tournament. The critics should look back in history and see where a bracelet has been bought."
So, out of nowhere the clown Flack - who made a complete fool of himself by drinking and screaming when Scotty Nguyen won the 2008 WSOP $50k H.O.R.S.E. - accuses one the classiest poker players of all time of buying a bracelet.
Of course, Brunson has responded to this in his blog:
"I thought this man was a friend of mine. Back in the early days of the WSOP, I certainly didn't even consider that a bracelet would have any value. I only played in 2 or 3 events a year because Jack Binion expected me to. I actually didn't pick up two bracelets in the 70's-80's because I already had a couple. I never won a tournament that had 8 people in it. There were only 14 entries in a mixed double tournament that Starla Brodie and I won. If I could find that bracelet, I would sent it to Layne and tell him to stick it where the sun doesn't shine," Brunson writes.
