Poker pro Alex Livingston was having one heck of a week after winning a coveted WSOP bracelet, but disaster apparently struck soon thereafter.

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

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

Livingston won the top prize $103,282 in the aforementioned stud tournament. That prize money is safe — he just lost the ceremonial bracelet. He would have kept looking for it, but he had to get back to another tournament he had already entered. To help it’s return, the 35-year-old offered a $200 reward.

Livingston Poses With Bracelet He Would Misplace 20 Minutes LaterThe bracelet itself does have value, but it’s a relatively small amount. It’s mostly a sentimental prize, though some poker players through the years have sold theirs for various reasons.

As one poker player suggested to Livingston on Twitter: Check the pawn shops?

UPDATE

Good news for Livingston, the bracelet has been located!
