What Happened To The 2006 World Series of Poker Main Event Champion?





Q: What Happened to Jamie Gold?

A: Jamie Gold became one of the most widely talked about names in the poker world literally overnight when he took down the 2006 World Series of Poker main event for $12 million.

Jamie Gold - Las VegasJamie's win gave him fame, notoriety and a great deal of money. Unfortunately for Gold, he has been unable to duplicate his success, as his largest cash since the 2006 World Series of Poker main event was for just $54,673.

The question is - what happened to the winner of the largest main event in the history of the World Series of Poker?

Let's start with what we know for sure:

1) Jamie Gold frequents lower buy-in tournaments and cash games in Las Vegas and Los Angeles. According to public records, Gold's last tournament cash came in a $60 event at the 2012 LA Poker Series. Jamie Gold is frequently spotted playing in low limit cash games.

2) Jamie attached his name to FreeGoldPoker.com in the summer of 2011. The site bills itself as a 100% US legal poker subscription site. To be honest, I'm not even sure if the site is still functional.

3) The Tropicana Las Vegas launched the "Jamie Gold Poker Room" in January of 2012. Gold signed on to be the spokesperson and ambassador for the poker room, and also promised to make monthly appearances. The room was closed less than a year later.

4) Gold frequently appears at charity poker tournaments.

--

Jamie Gold is still active in the poker world, though he hasn't had anything close to a major cash since he won the World Series of Poker main event in 2006.

At one time, Jamie Gold was #1 on the all-time poker tournament money list. He now occupies the #9 spot on the list.
