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.
