Yang’s WSOP Bling for Sale

Yang’s WSOP Bling for Sale

Wednesday, 13 March 2013

It seems that god’s purpose for Jerry Yang was only a brief stint as a poker millionaire if recent suspicions are correct.

Having taken down the 2007 WSOP Main Event for $8,250,000, Yang seems to have fallen on hard times if it transpires he’s the subject of a forthcoming Internal Revenue Service auction.

In a recently released document, a selection of luxury items, including a 2007 WSOP Main Event bracelet and a Corum watch, are being auctioned off to cover unpaid tax debts. Included in the number of charges is a Federal tax lien (a move that allows the government to secure a person’s property against an outstanding tax debt) for $571,894.

The auction will take place on April 4th from 10:00am and will be offered as an entire lot, then as individual items. Whichever method (overall or individual) attracts the most money will be deemed the winning bid and the items sold accordingly.

The minimum bid for the entire lot is $6,389.
