Now Brian Hastings can join the profits he is making online - which are much bigger than the ones he is doing at this WSOP, even with this winning - to the honour of having a WSOP Gold Bracelet, which gives him prestige and turns him into a member of the restricted group of players who possess such thing!

Golden bracelet is more a symbol than the price he is attached to, except for the main event, side WSOP event usually dont change much of their winners bankroll.

Just goes to show that the WSOP although not offering huge prizes in comparison to online high stakes still attracts the big names due to the prestige of the bracelet, its a positive thing.

I think in the future theres a real worry that the WSOP will lose entrants but i don't think thats gonna be an issue.

so whats the hype about those bracelets anyway- sure you can ask a pro craftsman to make the exact copy of the bracelet for a fer grands- and you can wear one at the tables- just come up with the story for everyone- like you won a small event at the wsop few year ago- no one will check anyway

This is actually a sursprise if you ask me, i mean i always knew that Hastings strong point is PLO, not HU NLHE!

Still, it's nice for him to hold a gold bracelet after all, it's such a big reward for a poker player Big Smile
