Interesting...wonder if he is broke after winning that 12 Million.
When asked about his bracelet, which in May found itself scheduled for auction, Gold explained:
“It’s a legal issue that I can’t talk about, but what I can say is that I am not selling it. I would never do that. It’s really unfortunate what has been happening. It is out of my hands, but it’s not something I wish was happening. I am not purposefully selling; I am not involved in the auction and will not be making $1 if it does end up being sold.”
Goes back to when he won the main event. A friend of his staked him for the tourney and after he won it he tried to screw the guy over. They've been fighting in court for a while now I believe. After taxes and giving the other guy his cut I don't think he has very much cash left.
