WickedChopsPoker.com is reporting that Card Player Magazine editor, Jeff Shulman, has said he will "renounce the WSOP bracelet" should he win the 2009 World Series of Poker. 

He plans to throw the bracelet in the garbage.

We had been hearing from multiple sources for days that Shulman is saying that if he were to win the 2009 WSOP Main Event, he'd renounce the bracelet as he believes that Harrah's has treated his magazine unfairly in recent years. We just asked Shulman on the first break if this was true, to which he replied, "If by renounce it you mean throw it in the garbage, then yes."

Harrah's entered into an exclusivity deal with Bluff Magazine, a Card Player Magazine competitor, to provide coverage of the World Series of Poker events.

Shulman reportedly believes the selling of WSOP media rights is unfair and that the coverage now is unacceptable.

We're all about the righteous "Eff You," and we understand why Shulman would feel scorned. But if you truly care about the game of poker, why would you possibly do this? What good does this do for the game, or bringing more people to it? And if you're the Editor of one of the two major poker publications, isn't one of your goals to bring more people to the game?
As this goes to press, Shulman was slipping a bit out of the top nine but still going strong. 

Shulman is the son of Card Player Magazine's owners.
