Jerry Yang — Hachem Comments Were “Uncalled For” and “Out Of Line”

2007 Main Event Champ defends himself to the HPT.

Jaymz Larson corners 2007 World Series of Poker Main Event Champion Jerry Yang during the recent Heartland Poker Tour stop at the Club One Casino in Fresno, CA.

Yang, ever gracious, thanks the HPT for bringing “real” poker to the nothingness of the Central Valley and then addresses what was on everyone’s mind (last week) and that’s Joe Hachem's hatchet job of his WSOP Main Event successors – Yang and Jamie Gold.

Turns out Yang is good pals with Gold and feels like Hachem was “out of line.” In fact he alludes to the fact that Hachem had just busted from a tournament to give him the benefit of the doubt, like maybe he was on tilt.

Either way, Yang didn’t take this affront to his ambassadorship lying down. Check it out.
