Description:
A gleaming keepsake to accompany the $12M winner's prize
2006 World Series of Poker Championship Bracelet Won by Jamie Gold. Arguably the most significant contest in the history of this popular card game, the 2006 Main Event remains the largest in tournament history both for total prize pool ($82,512,162) and number of contestants (8,773). Like every WSOP Main Event, the 2006 edition was a $10,000 No-Limit Texas Hold 'em format, though the enormous size of the field necessitated four separate starting days, each whittling the field to 800, which were then regrouped and pushed through their paces until just nine men were left standing on August 8th. The final hand came two days later, after popular player Jamie Gold had eliminated seven of the final eight opponents. Gold drew a Queen of Spades and Nine of Clubs, making a pair with the board on the Queen of Clubs. Paul Wasicka's pair of tens was not helped by the Five and Eight of Hearts on the board, nor the Ace of Diamonds on the turn or Four of Clubs on the river.

Gold's play in his 2006 victory is considered one of the great shows of poker psychology, as he was uncannily successful in goading his opponents into betting strong against his superior hand, or folding when he was weak. His penchant for discussing his hand, sometimes truthfully and others not, ruffled some feathers in the poker community, and he even went so far as to flash one of his hole cards, rattling his opponent into folding a superior hand. When the battle was done, Gold was twelve million dollars richer, at that time the heftiest monetary prize for the winner of any sports or television event in history.

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.
