Dutch Boyd is more well known for being a professional poker player, but he’s also a domain name investor who has been active on NamePros and DNForum. I saw that he recently put one of his poker tournament prizes up for sale on Ebay.
According to the listing:
“Up for sale is this Men’s Bellagio Gold Poker Tournament Bracelet. It’s 14k gold, made in Italy, weighs in at 83 grams and just over 2.6 troy oz. I won this bracelet from a Bellagio NL Holdem poker tournament in 2008. I don’t believe the Bellagio awards gold bracelets for their tournaments any more, so these aren’t being made again. It’s a nice looking bracelet, but I’ve never worn it. So I’m selling it to raise some Christmas cash.”
I know next to nothing about poker, but I think it would be cool to own a little piece of poker history. According to Wikipedia, Boyd’s “total live tournament winnings exceed $1,900,000.” There are plenty of domain investors who haven’t made that much money from their domain investments.
Anyway, if you are interested in buying Boyd’s Bellagio poker tournament bracelet, the auction ends in a little less than two days. The high bid is $2,400 and there is not a reserve price on this auction.
