The main event of the WSOP might be the top attraction at the annual tournament series but organisers found time to make two unveilings just before the action kicked off earlier this week.
In advance of over 1,900 players sitting down for Day 1B of the main event inside the Rio, industry legend Doyle Brunson was called to the stage and presented with a bronze bust of himself in recognition of his many years of success and contributions to the game.Despite saying that he was not going to compete in the WSOP main event this year, the Texan soon found the allure too great and sat down with the rest of the field to try for another bracelet following a brief speech.The bust of Brunson is to be displayed at the WSOP in order to watch over the next generation of grinders and its unveiling was matched by the premiere across the strip at the Cosmopolitan of this year’s main event bracelet. Made with over 200 grams of 14-carat white gold and lined with more than 28 carats of white diamonds, the lavish piece of jewellery is valued at $500,000. Such is the magnitude of the piece that it’s not only worth significantly more than previous bracelets but it’s now the most expensive sports trophy in the world.
