Doyle Brunson Opens Up Can of Whupass

Doyle's recent blog entry is a fiesty discourse of fightin' words. Enjoy.

As a rule, I don't say anything about things people say in interviews.  But I can't help being deeply offended by the article in CardPlayer where Layne Flack says, "You want to talk about buying a bracelet?  Let's talk about Doyle's bracelet when there were 8 people in the tournament.  The critics should look back in history and see where a bracelet has been bought."
