It was a pleasantly surprised ex-world champion Peter Eastgate, who yesterday noted that bids on his WSOP bracelet had reached 75,100$ from a starting price of 16,000$.
- I am obviously pleasantly surprised that the price has reached such a high level, he said.

Dellbo99 i think you're wrong here. People need to close chapters of their life. It's really hard when your chapter made you won so much money. He for sure would like to try sometimes again some big buy-in tournaments etc. We know he won't play (so i assume he was loosing because nearly noone will end if he is winning much after) , and keeping that staff like that isn't helping him at all. I think he is doing the right thing.

maybe he will not have children or grandchildren and thats why he sell it !I am joking!seriously,maybe he could leave for children and then they could do whatever they want with this bracelet,sell or keep!if they sell in 20,30 years I am sure that will get more money that on this auction!

Good karma to you Mr. Eastgate. Decency ought to be everyone's main living rule.
The options for what to do with this kind of bling is imo - Wear them at the poker tables - Put them on display in your home - Stick them in a drawer and get them out to look at from time to time - Sell them - Sell them and donate the earnings to charity
From what I have seen Eastgate is not a trophy-flashing kind of guy, and having them laying around as memorabilia obviously doesn't do anything for him either. So he chooses to put it to good use, which I can only give him my respects for.
