Poker Update: Gold Wins The Green: WSOP Championship


Yes, the $12 million top prize of the 2006 37th WSOP Championship went to Jamie Gold, a Hollywood talent agent. He and most of the thousands of people who entered got their $10,000 entry fee from playing online poker, so they’re obviously against the pending legislation making Internet poker illegal.


Gold’s father suffers from Lou Gehrig’s disease, so he plans to use his winnings to make his family “comfortable”. He has plans to return to Hollywood, and to develop a new TV show about poker through his Buzz Nation company.


The top 12 winners of the WSOP tournament all won at least $1M, with Gold winning $12 million. According to the 2006 WSOP payout structure document (PDF, 22 pages), the second prize was over $6M, and the smallest thirty or forty prizes was $14,597 each. The total prize payout was over $82.5M. In fact, so much money was paid out that there were 63 prizes that were six-figures or higher.
