Gold Bracelet Phenomenon Continues: Hassan Kamoei Bracelet on Auction

If you thought the recent string of WSOP* poker tournament bracelets on eBay would end with Peter Eastgate and Paul “The Eskimo” Clark, you thought wrong.  Hassan Kamoei’s 1999 $2,500 Pot-Limit Omaha bracelet has been put up for auction on eBay, and the minimum bid is set at $3,800.  Kamoei survived a final poker table that included Robert Williamson III and T.J.

Of course, you could go …
