Tony G didn't get Eastgates bracelet

Tags: bracelet, Peter Eastgate, Tony G, WSOP.
Posted on Monday, December 06, 2010 by "J".

He said it in advance he was gonna get it, but eventually he had to give up. Tony G did not get a hold of Peter Eastgate's bracelet, which famously went under the hammer for the massive amount of $ 147,000.

In his most recent blog Tony G says, his bid was well over $ 100,000 but eventually he had to give up, since he after all has his limits. According to Bluff Magazine the bracelet has probably been sold to a poker site, and if Tony G knew that, he probably also realized that the poker site have a greater disposable income than he has.

Tony G would have bought the bracelet for his dog, and the world's best trash-talking poker player says, that his dog was extremely disappointed.

"In short, man's best friend is disappointed. I did not win the auction for Peter Eastgate's bracelet on eBay. We have talked through problems, and he (the dog Ed.) Know that I have my limits,"Tony G writes in his blog.

As Bluff Magazine also mentions, it is nonetheless impressive that Tony G manages to create so much publicity about himself - without having spent so much as a penny.

Yea he sucks...
When he was talking about buying it i was thinking he will have "honor" to buy it.
Not for dog or fun just for charity.

When he cant get publicity by playing good poker and winning tournaments he must find it in other ways ...

that's a shame.. but, it being a poker room who bought it is a pretty good guess IMO - and that'd be damn near impossible to out bid.

 lokipoker3/19/2011 3:06:42 PM GMT
still one must wonder why Peter is selling this, this is a rare thing and he should hold on to it, just sad if he has wasted 10 millions in 3 years
 Flippedchips3/19/2011 3:17:33 PM GMT
lol thought it was kinda funny myself, makes me laugh at people on here who call these pros who have made millions playing poker donkeys tbh its a bit ridiculous
 marivers11011/26/2012 4:16:16 PM GMT

 DaCapo711/26/2012 7:13:57 PM GMT
Lol he can buy it at ebay i have heard. But which guy have fun with this bracelet? The only way is it to win at the WSOP in Vegas.

Tony G is kind of bad for the image of poker in general. Lack of respect, etiquette, common sense etc. You don't insult a guy after taking his money when you know you just got lucky, it's probably the dumbest thing you can do at a poker table. And he did it many times...
