WSOP Main Event finalists selling advertisements on eBay

Tags: Dennis Phillips, WSOP Main Event final table, Ylon Schwartz.
Posted on 22 October 2008 by "T".

Ylon Schwartz (5 in chip count) and Dennis Phillips (chip leader) are two players that will play the WSOP Main Event final table on the 9th November, fighting for a prize pool of approximately 23.7 Million Dollars.

Now these 2 players have started an auction each on eBay where it's possible to bid on a ten-square-inch logo on their shirts.


The bidding price for a ten-square-inch logo on Ylon's shirt starts at 37 500 dollars, no bidders so far. Dennis Phillips started much lower than Ylon and have already received an offer of 13 600 dollars.

Both players will wear the shirt with the logo on during the WSOP Main Even Final Table which will be watched by many millions of people around the world.

All the money Dennis will make from this auction will go to National Multiple Sclerosis Society's Gateway Area Chapter in St. Louis. What Ylon will do with the money is not mentioned on his auction on eBay.

Good thinking. Easy way to make a few extra bucks.

Anyway I hope Dennis will get the highest bid as his money is going to a good cause and not in his pocket.

I guess pokerstars more and more will look like Swedish Fotball players so much commercial on their clothes that you can hardly see wich team they are playing for. hehe
