The Danish ex-world champion has decided to auction off the trophy from the victory in the WSOP Main Event from 2008 to a good cause - It's still just gathering dust, explains 'Isser'.
Five Danes are in possession of one or more WSOP bracelets, which is proof of a victory in a tournament during the World Series of Poker, but the group could soon shrink to only four members.

He is doing the right thing, worst ME winner ever, in the worst HU ever. Getting rid of and undeserved trophy and donate to charity seems the right thing to do. If he was good enough player he wouldn't have retired one and a half year after that victory.

Why, players never quit, its in the blood. Well as its for charity then I guess its good off him, id just keep it on show myself, It would be sad for someone to buy it for more than its actuall worth (gold) Its like buying a trophy from a football game you never played in etc.
This is literally the worst thing iv heard WTF PE! Sorry to be so negative but what are you doing??? Give some of the intrest on your huge ammount of money away,you probably get $20,000 aday intrest on $10,000,000!! Personally id never ever ever sell a braccelet! PE has lost every ounce of respect from me totally,absolute idiot to be honest

I wasn't ware he had retired, life is too busy for me to pay attention to the problems of millionaires. Even if I got to the point where I had made enough money from poker to retire and focus on something else, I would still play - it's a fun game. Maybe he just needs to do something else for a while, lock in his money and start over at small stakes. I would not auction off the bracelet however, I would just donate the equivalent amount. Winning the ME bracelet with all the entrants has become pretty much once in a liftetime; he may regret that decision.

I was unaware that PE retired. As far as the bracelet goes..Its his bracelet if he wants to sell it keep it or whatever thats his choice doesnt bother me one bit either way. Im surprised he retired though seemed liked a great player.
