Jamie Gold Gone On Day 1 of 2007 WSOP

It was a disappointing return to the World Series of Poker for Jamie Gold (a paltry $14,000 in cashes and no deep runs) after a disappointing year with him as poker's ambassador.

JamiegoldwsopGold, who has been looking more like a homeless man around the Rio than the reigning World Champion of poker lately, was eliminated just after the dinner break on Day 1d of the 2007 WSOP. Gold had been at the ESPN featured table all day and proved to be more Varkonyi/Moneymaker-like than Raymer/Hachem-esque in his quest to repeat as champion.

"I'm just frustrated with the way that I played. I played really poorly," Jamie Gold told Lance Bradley of Canada's ThePokerBiz.com, minutes after he was eliminated from the second largest field in poker history.

Gold eventually hit the rail when he pushed all-in with Qs-9s and wasn't able to catch up to his opponent's A-7 off.

Gold's early exit falls far short of his prediction for this year's World Series of Poker. "I know this is the thing you guys are going to kill me on, but I think I'll make the final table this year," he told us during our heads-up interview with him last March.
