RAYMER ACCREDITS REAL BRACELETS

When the announcement was made that WSOP gold bracelets would be awarded to the winners of the three scheduled events in London that fall, there was some initial debate over the bracelets’ legitimacy. Would these bracelets, the first ever to be awarded outside of Las Vegas, be regarded as “real” bracelets?

2004 WSOP Main Event champion Greg Raymer acknowledged the issue during an interview with PokerListings at the 2007 WSOPE. “A lot of people are debating whether it’s a real bracelet or not,” said Raymer. “I’m on the ‘It’s a real bracelet’ side.”
