Gold’s Gold Gone

Gold’s Gold Gone

Monday, 5 August 2013

Jamie Gold might have had the poker world at his feet back in 2006 but after a number of years in the wilderness his stock has decreased significantly (as has his bankroll).

However, despite his dip in fortune, Gold’s gold still seems to have some appeal to avid poker fans.

According a recent tweet by Kevin “Kevmath” Mathers, the former WSOP World Champion’s bracelet was sold for more than $65,000 at a sports memorabilia auction.

The bracelet was sold at Heritage Auctions and according to the company’s Director of Public Relations, Noah Fleisher, the seller wishes to remain anonymous. However, he did confirm to Pokernews that “it was not Mr. Gold auctioning it”.

Gold’s WSOP bling is certainly one of the more noteworthy pieces in recent years as the event is the largest ever Main Event of all time and the second largest over (just behind last year’s Big One for One Drop).
