Jamie Gold

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. The rest was frozen by court order after Leyser sued in August 2006, claiming they had agreed to split the winnings. US District Court Judge Roger Hunt ordered the frozen funds be moved into an interest-bearing account. [ABC LOCAL NEWS: POKER WINNINGS]
