Those BC players hoping to win entry can also get a sneak peak at the WSOP’s ultimate prize, as the famed WSOP bracelet is being showcased this week at select BC Casinos. Valued at $150,000, the specially crafted WSOP Championship Bracelet, considered to be the most coveted non-monetary prize in the world of professional poker, will be on display at the following locations:

The public is invited to meet local poker stars, members of the PlayNow poker team and photograph the 2011 WSOP bracelet, which is made of 14K solid gold, and features 392 White Diamonds (over 2.5 carats) complemented with genuine Black Diamonds and sparkling Red Rubies!
The team from CanadaPoker.com had a chance to see Jonathan Duhamel’s 2010 bracelet up close just a few months ago during an interview and it was a really motivating experience as a poker player.
We at CanadaPoker.com would like to offer kudos to the folks at BCLC and PlayNow.com for literally putting WSOP gold and glory within reach.
