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.

Gus Hansen has taken a lot of heat recently for the large amount of money he has lost in online poker over the past few years.  Of course, sitting at poker tables with the absolute best players in the world is sure to drain anyone’s bankroll – even with all of the rakeback you earn at the highest stakes. In any case, Hansen rebounded in a big way by winning the £10,000 High Roller Heads-Up event at the World Series of Poker Europe.  Of course, winning this poker tournament wasn’t as easy as Hansen would have preferred since he had …
