Jamie Gold, 43, won the World Series of Poker Main Event in 2006 and took home an incredible $12 million! The 2006 Main Event was played during the height of poker's popularity and Gold outlasted 8,722 other players (the biggest main event in WSOP history). A few days ago, The Heritage Auctions wrote that Jamie Gold's gold bracelet from the epic win will be up for grabs at an auction in Rosemont, Illinois, August 1-2, 2013. 

The bracelet is described on the site as having "259 stones including over seven carats of diamonds and 120 grams of white and yellow gold. Rubies are inset to create the red of the heart and diamond suits, while a sapphire represents the spade and three black diamonds the clubs."

Neither Gold nor Heritage Auctions have commented on why the bracelet is for sale, but many believe it's another of Gold's ideas to raise money for charity.
