No One As Good As Gold

GoldvictoryIn what will go down as one of the most dominating performances in poker history, Jamie Gold has won the 2006 WSOP Main Event.

The ex-agent/current producer/Team Bodog member was chip leader since Day 4. He never relinquished the chip lead during nearly 14 hours of final table play. Only for brief periods did he not have at least a 2-to-1 chip advantage over his nearest competitor.

Gold defeated Paul Wasicka heads-up for the title. On the final hand, Gold raised pre-flop and Wasicka called. On a flop of Q-8-5, Wasicka fires a 1.5M bet. Gold moves all-in and Wasicka calls, flipping over pocket tens. Gold shows Q-9. Wasicka doesn't improve, and Jamie Gold's ridiculous run ends with a WSOP ME title.

Gold banks $12M for the win. Wasicka will take home $6,102,499. Michael Binger finished third and receives $4,123,310.

The interview you owe me is for my film, I mean... (just in case that was unclear!)


Hey Wicked, how are you? I just arrived in Rio (Brazil - not the casino) after a 24hour journey including code red and "no liquids on the plane" (???). Oh brother... I hadn't read the post you did on Federal. It was too good (as usual) and the translation priceless! I am sorry we didn't see each other more in Vegas, but I suppose I will be returning soon. You guys owe me an interview!

It was great to meet you - all the best. keep in touch. I'll be reading you daily, as always.
