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.
Eastgate, winner of the WSOP Main Event 2008, is auctioning off his bracelet on auction site eBay. The money is not kept by him, but donated to the charity organisation UNICEF.
- Of course I still feel great pride in my title, but the bracelet will never be used, says Peter Eastgate in a press release and continues
- I never actually wear any jewelry and such. So I thought that they could get better benefits from the bracelet and hopefully it will do alot of people good, he explains.
