Judge freezes half of World Series of Poker winnings

Sep 6, 2006 10:28 AM CDT

Oops, I answered my own question. See article below:

He bluffed his way to the top at the World Series of Poker, but for now, he'll only get half of the $12 million jackpot.

We've been telling you about the lawsuit against winner Jamie Gold. Gold is being sued by a man who claims Gold agreed to split the money with him.

Tuesday, a judge froze half of the prize, which means Gold can spend $6 million. The rest will be put on hold until after the lawsuit.

Gold beat more than 8,700 players to win the World Series of Poker last month.
