Cake Poker Gives Back WSOP Bracelet Sold On Ebay
Cake Poker, one of the top five largest online poker networks, has bought the bracelet at the Buy It Now price of $2,500 of TJ Cloutier. And you know what they're doing with it? They're giving it back to him.
“As much as we would love to have a WSOP bracelet, or even award it to one of our cherished poker players, we can’t, in good conscience, keep it from the man who rightfully won it; which is why we’ve decided to return it to TJ Cloutier… just as soon as we’re done having some fun with it,” stated the Cake Poker blog.
