Jamie Gold is Auctioning Off His WSOP Main Event and WatchPublished on 2013-05-18 00:36:00
Jamie Gold, who has been largely absent from the poker world over the last number of years, is auctioning off his World Series of Poker main event bracelet and watch through Heritage Auctions (HA.com)
Here is the description of Gold's main event bracelet, courtesy of HA.com:
'The bracelet features 259 stones including over seven carats of diamonds and 120 grams of white and yellow gold. Rubies are inset to create the red of the heart and diamond suits, while a sapphire represents the spade and three black diamonds the clubs. The clasp is stamped "14K." Fine condition. An absolutely amazing representation from one of the most talked about WSOP events in history.'
Here is the description of the watch:
'The watch appears in absolutely Mint, unworn condition, with the protective stickering still applied to clasp and verso, and the hang tag still affixed. The watch is housed in a specially made wood and velvet hinged case. Housed within is an owner's card that reads, "Congratulations to Jamie Gold! Final Table Chip Count $25,650,000. You are the proud owner of the Corum Bubble Royal Flush! 2006 World Series of Poker." A cleaning cloth and "Corum Dealer" chip complete the ensemble.'
Jamie Gold outlasted 8,772 other players to take down the World Series of Poker main event in 2006. Gold walked away with $12 million, an amount that was substantially decreased following a settlement with Crispin Leyser.
The 2006 World Series of Poker main event is still the largest on record, as it took place shortly before the UIGEA was signed into law in the United States.
As mentioned, Gold was been largely absent from the poker circuit over the past couple of years. Jamie helped launch FreeGoldPoker.com in 2011, a site that billed itself as a 100% US legal poker subscription site. In addition, Jamie was the spokesperson and ambassador for the "Jamie Gold Poker Room" at the Tropicana before the room was closed.
Jamie can now be found participating in charity poker tournaments across the United States.
