Doyle Brunson Suggest a Hall of Shame

September 1, 2009

The Poker Hall of Fame is something that all poker players dream of being icluded in. But the poker legend Doyle Brunson have now suggested that a Poker Hall of Shame should be added.

In his blog over at DoylesRoom he suggests that the Poker Hall of Shame should be introduced and include players who abuse the dealers at the tables and their opponents in one way or another.

Doyles nominees for the Poker Hall of Shame are

  • Puggy Pearson
  • John “Doc” Holliday
  • Nick “Shoeshine” Simpson
  • “Nigger Nate” Lanette
  • Stu Ungar
  • Nick Vacchiano

Now we just have to wait and see if this will become reality one day or if it is just Doyle’s way of telling the poker players to be a bit nicer at the tables.

    Even though it might not be such a bad idea to have something like this I find it very hard to believe that it will ever be implemented.

    And I don’t think Stu Ungar deserves to be on that list, instead I would add Tony G. because of the way he treats other players at the table.

    Doyle is the grandfather of poker. He took poker to a whole new level when he wrote SuperSystems, and in his mid 70’s he still has the game and mental acuity to compete with the best in the world. He is a living legend!

Got something to say?
