Jamie Gold might have had the poker world at his feet back in 2006 but after a number of years in the wilderness his stock has decreased significantly (as has his bankroll).
However, despite his dip in fortune, Gold’s gold still seems to have some appeal to avid poker fans. According a recent tweet by Kevin “Kevmath” Mathers, the former WSOP World Champion’s bracelet was sold for more than $65,000 at a sports memorabilia auction. The bracelet was sold at Heritage Auctions and according to the company’s Director of Public Relations, Noah Fleisher, the seller wishes to remain anonymous. However, he did confirm to Pokernews that “it was not Mr. Gold auctioning it”. Gold’s WSOP bling is certainly one of the more noteworthy pieces in recent years as the event is the largest ever Main Event of all time and the second largest over (just behind last year’s Big One for One Drop).
The sixth annual edition of Grosvenor Casinos’ Goliath tournament series may have begun last week but players are being advised that there is still time to qualify for seats into its prestigious £120 buy-in main event.
Land-based and online gaming products innovator Scientific Games Corporation is set to run its second annual Shuffle Master Classic event next month offering one lucky poker player the chance to walk away with $100,000 in cash.
Land-based casino operator Estoril Sol has been awarded the first online gaming license for Portugal and has teamed up with platform provider Gaming1 to launch the new EstorilSolCasinos.pt domain.
