Poker pro Alex Livingston had a hell of a week after winning a coveted WSOP bracelet, but disaster apparently struck soon after.

The Canadian said on his Twitter account on Wednesday that the World Series of Poker bracelet he won on June 7 in a $1,500 seven-card stud event is now gone. It was his first career bracelet.

According to Livingston, who finished third in 2019 WSOP Main Event at $10,000 buy-in for $4 million, he could have dropped it or left it on a table somewhere in the casino.

Livingston won the top prize of $103,282 in the aforementioned stud tournament. This prize money is safe – he just lost the ceremonial bracelet. He would have kept looking for it, but he had to come back to another tournament he had already participated in. To help him come back, the 35-year-old offered a $200 reward.

As one poker player suggested to Livingston on Twitter: check the pawnshops?
