Default Speaking of Jamie Gold...

Now that I'm watching the WSOP on ESPN - What do you think of him and his play? Its down to 27 now and he is being featured more on T.V. now. I'm sorry but this guy doesn't impress me. Maybe because he's a kid. Maybe because I now know who the winner is. Just a thought.

I have a copy of the final table play. It's a hand-by-hand chronicle of their play. Gold certainly gets a lot of nice hands to play. Plus he personally eliminated 7oo8 of his opponents on the final table.

I've also seen that online, where the CL seems to win all his races even with mediocre cards. Catching trips, straights or flushes. Moneymaker probably had the same kind of Mojo going for him in 2003.

I wonder how Gold's legal proceedings are going?

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.

even though you people say that the guy must have had horseshoes to win, and that the cards were perfect to allow him to weave through 8700 players avoiding the knocked out punch that so many of the best like ivey, hellmuth, lederer and chan fell victim has to be somewhat an understatement of this great feat he has accomplished.I believe he will manage to obtain the same star status as joe hachem even though he is nearly as much fun to watch and doesnt really have the apppearance for being in the spotlight. The question may come up wheather he can contend ona regular basis at professional poker tourneys such as the wpt and wsop. He should have more top finished than a moneymaker, but dont count on another title any time soon as most wsop main event title winners are cinderella storys such as our good friend jamie.

if he made an agreement with somebody that he will give half of his winnings in exchange for something (i really didn't understood what that "something" was) he made really good deal before WSOP started because he thought that half of his winnings there (or on any tourney with 8000+ players) will be 1/2 of 0$ which is 0$.. now when he did unbelivable thing winning 12 mill$ why it's that hard to lay down 6mill$ ? i'm relatively new in poker world so i never heard of Jamie Gold before this WSOP - i watched some of his hand analysis from WSOP here in forum and as i saw he won every coin flip hand (or 3-1) hands when he moved.. but he made his huge stack early and could call that hands without worry of losing too much..

Default Jamie Gold Plays In TCI

Jamie Gold played in his first tournament since the WSOP tournament in Las Vegas. Jamie made it down to the last 2 tables and was the chip leader going into the last day of place. Jamie ended up taking 16th place which was very impressive with all that he is experiencing and going through with the lawsuit.
