WSOP Bracelet Winners Cashing In On eBay

Tuesday, November 30th, 2010

Last week I wrote about how Australian poker pro Tony G was trying to win Peter Eastgate’s WSOP Main Event bracelet for his dog Zasko in an auction on eBay. Unfortunately, Zasko won’t be able to sport the WSOP bling around his neck, as another mysterious bidder, “7***1”, won the bracelet with his (or her) bid of $147,500. Peter Eastgate put his bracelet up for auction in order to raise money for UNICEF, but he isn’t the only one cashing in his bracelet on eBay.

T.J. Cloutier sold his 2005 $2,500 Hold’em event bracelet on eBay, via a Texas pawnshop as well and now yet another player is heading to eBay with a WSOP bracelet. Paul “Eskimo” Clark is a three-time WSOP bracelet winner, but has fallen off the poker radar since around 2003. His bracelet wins include a $5000 Stud Limit 7 Card Stud victory in 1997, a $1500 Razz winning in 1999, and a $1500 Limit 7 Card Stud Hi/Lo event winning in 2002. He’s seen over $2.6 million in tournament winnings over the course of his poker career.

Eskimo Clark’s Razz bracelet is now up for auction on eBay and isn’t looking to come anywhere close to the success of Eastgate’s Main Event bracelet. With just a little over 1 day to go, the current bid is a mere $3,850. It is not clear who is putting the bracelet up for auction, but as the item location is in Ireland it seems as though Eskimo Clark parted with his bracelet years ago.
