Jamie Gold Lawsuit
The Legend of Jamie Gold continues to get a lot of press throughout the world and the press he is getting is not at all good. Jamie Gold made a verbal commitment that he would pay 50% of his winnings from the World Series of Poker to Crispin Leyser. Crispin Leyser is a television development executive and an instructor for the World Poker Tour Boot Camp. Crispin believes he should be receiving $6 million dollars because of a brokered deal made between he and Jamie Gold prior to the start of the prestigious Main Event at this years World Series of Poker. This is now in the hands of the Judicial System and there will be no money distributed to either man, until this has been settled.
Jamie Gold's reputation has taken a significant beating since the conclusion of the Main Event and now you have to wonder what else he is hiding. There was a reason why he was considering chip dumping the night before the final table began. He stated that he did not want all the fame that came with winning the World Series, and he would be happy to settle for second place. Now, I am curious as to what else this guy might be hiding from his past that he does not want to get out into the public eye.
Jamie Gold has definitely created a name for himself but it is definitely not for the right reasons. He is obviously a tremendous poker player, but he has some serious skeletons in the closet that will continue to come to the forefront as the days and months go by. Its too bad that people's personal lives become public knowledge once you get famous, but if you bring it on yourself that's your problem. This is one PokerParty you'll have to keep your eye on.

Jeff Madsen: A Poker Star is Born
The star of the World Series of Poker did not come from the Main Event, but a star was born and the name of the star is Jeff Madsen. Jeff made a name for himself throughout the world of poker by winning two World Series of Poker bracelets and finding himself at the final table on four different occasions. Jeff is only 21 years old and he applied himself like a wylie veteran at the poker tables. During the World Series of Poker he signed on with Full Tilt Poker and now with the conclusion of the World Series he has signed on with the powerhouse poker agency; Poker Royalty. Jeff Madsen is going to be a name that will constantly be seen and heard from in future major poker events. The most impressive stat from the World Series of Poker was not only the fact that he made it to four final tables, but he made those final tables in three different games.
For those of you that are unaware of Poker Royalty they are an agency that represents poker players in a full service poker player marketing. They help the poker players make smart business decisions and help them attain a status in the poker industry that each player desires. This was definitely a wise move for Jeff Madsen as he is going to be attracting a lot of attention from his tremendous showing at the 2006 World Series of Poker.

WSOP Main Event
The Main Event is the biggest draw in poker and that is especially true at this years World Series of Poker. With over 8,000 entrants into the Main Event it has become a spectacle and everyone wants to win the coveted bracelet. The only question I wonder is that whether or not it is good for the game of poker to have so many no name guys moving on, while the big time players continue to be left by the wayside. I know that like all major attractions people want to see the big names battling with each other and unfortunately at this year's WSOP Main Event there are hardly any names on the final 27 that you will recognize. Is this good or bad for poker? I would like to watch a final table of the known personalities and the best players in the world. Unfortunately this tournament does not tell you who the best player in the World truly is and that is what the Main Event should clarify.
The World Series of Poker always has a few stories that come out of it and this years is no different. The latest bickering is coming from two poker stars in Daniel Negreanu and Greg Raymer. Greg Raymer called out Negreanu for his part with the WPT and then Negreanu fired right back by telling Raymer to "go breast feed some hungry children in Africa". There is always going to be some hostility when you put two big time ego's up against each other but let's solve this at the tables. I would rather enjoy seeing the two of these guys going up in a heads up battle and then they can talk all the trash they want. Now keep in mind this is not going to be a Matusow versus Hellmuth rant that's for sure but it would be entertaining nonetheless. I personally think Raymer would take down Negreanu in a heads up battle and as well in a street fight. These guys should set up a poker "I quit" match. Love to see it.
Today the World Series of Poker's main event will play down the final twenty seven players until they reach the final table. It should make for an interesting day. Stay tuned to this PokerParty.
