After a bystander posted his version of the event on the 2+2 poker forums (www.twoplustwo.com) Korfman responded, and in his own words described the altercation with the other player:

“i did not bubble. said punk bubbled then slammed his stack toward the guy that won the hand. punk was pissed because guy rivered him with a gutterball. then he had the balls to question weather the guy had him covered with part of his chips in the pot, part on the floor and part in the guys stacks. i then mother ****ed him for being a prick and chaos ensued. i always defend the dealers, floormen and players that dont defend themselves. these types of punks should have been spanked when they were a kid. actually im sorry i didnt pants him and take him over my knee. that would have been a great lesson for him. tk.”

Apparently Korfman’s version of events wasn’t enough to sway the Bellagio brass, and he is banned from the Hotel and Casino until further notice.
