Las Vegas, NV: (Feb-07-07) Jamie Gold, a former Hollywood agent before he turned poker pro, defeated 8,772 players to win the World Series of Poker tournament in 2006 in Las Vegas. In a dispute over half of the tournament's $12 million grand prize, Gold and Los Angeles-based TV producer Bruce Crispin Leyser agreed the matter should be resolved without litigation. Gold already withdrew $6 million, half of his take from winning the world's largest poker tournament.

US District Court Judge Roger Hunt ordered the frozen funds be moved into an interest-bearing account. [
