According to Schmidt, he has never called Doyle Brunson a cheater and doesn't believe that he is one. Schmidt claims Shortbutsosweet had misinterpreted one of his blog posts from two weeks ago where he says he called Brunson the best poker player in the world. Schmidt now says that he has tremendous respect for Brunson as both a human being and poker player. He then goes on to say that "Doyle absolutely never told me to come to Bobby?s room and come play him (whatever this means). Doyle said that he would welcome any action from some of the young internet players who thought they were so great..."
My take: Well, this effusion of respect for Brunson makes me think that Dusty Schmidt is full of dusty shit! Come on, even if Doyle Brunson never cheated a penny out of a penny-ante poker game, can you really believe that? Schmidt more than likely has some ulterior motive for such ebullient praise for Brunson.
