Doyle Brunson's Scooter Curse

In a recent interview, the 78-year-old poker legend Doyle Brunson revealed that he lost his scooter when leaving the Rio (Las Vegas) early in the morning after Day 1 of the Main Event.

"It flew off the lift on my Escalade as I was leaving the Rio after day 1 of the Main Event. It was about 2 o'clock in the morning and as I made a sharp left on Flamingo I heard a strange noise behind me. I looked back and couldn't see anything but I suspected my scooter had broken loose. The traffic was so bad I couldn't turn back, so I continued home where I could see the lift had malfunctioned and the scooter was gone." said Doyle Brunson

Now you might think that this was the first time a scooter went missing for Mr. Brunson. But the truth is that it was the third in the past few years. What makes this scooter curse even more unbelievable is that all of them were lost during the World Series of Poker

"This confirmed the "WSOP Scooter Jinx." I've lost 3 scooters since I started using them a few years ago because of my bad leg and all 3 were during the WSOP. One had slipped off similar to this year and I never found it. Another time I left the key in my scooter when I went into the restroom and someone drove it away, never to be seen again. So I'll be extremely careful next WSOP."

Another great story from Doyle Brunson. I had never heard about the other episodes, but now it makes three times that this happened to him, so it’s already a matter of breaking news in the poker journal. So funny! It’s not for the value of the scooter, he shouldn’t mind much about that, but for the way things happen. I believe that some trail sellers in the USA can think about doing a publicity campaign regarding this “curse” of Brunson, it would be a laugh! “Next time you trail your bike on the car, do it with our Super Safe X-Trail, or else, you can be looking for it like Brunson when you get home!”

Frankly i do not see how a scooter is better than an automatic car(like an Cadillac Escalade)...

I would never drive one of those myself, i would always prefer a car but they are pretty popular on cities with small streets Smile
