Jamie Gold Rumors
The rumors continue to swirl about the latest World Series of Poker Champion, Jamie Gold. The latest of a long list has him admitting to collusion during the Main Event. Here is a quote from him taken from Bluff Magazine:
"So every day I'd come to the table and everyone would freak out, and there'd be this guy sitting next to me who was practically in tears because he knew [he] could never raise a hand. So I said, "No, listen, think about it like this: No one can raise you, because they're raising me after you. You're in a great spot, and here's the deal. In return for this protection, every time I tell you to lay down your hand, you lay down your hand. And they all said okay. So I would look at my cards before the guy to my right, and then I'd say, "OK, you're cool; proceed..." or "Nope. Lay it down."
The more that comes out about Jamie Gold the shadier this guy looks. Does poker really want a guy like this being the WSOP champion. I'm sure this is not the last of the negative information we will be hearing about Jamie Gold. Looks like his PokerParty is just getting started.

SportingBet Chairman Peter Dicks Arrested
Another giant in the gaming world has been hit and hit hard. SportingBet PLC which is an online sportsbook and owns the poker site Paradise Poker, has suspended trading their shares on the London Stock Exchange voluntarily as one of its major chairmen was detained by the United States Government at the JFK Airport late last week. Peter Dicks is being held as a fugitive on an outstanding warrant. This is the second major arrest to gaming giants in the last couple of months. The last major arrest was that of David Caruthers, CEO of Bet on Sports, he was arrested on counts of rackateering and fraud.
With the news breaking that Peter Dicks was arrested the online gaming stocks fell (party gaming saw stocks drop 10 percent) drastically because most of the customers for online gaming and sportsbooks reside in the United States. This is getting pretty serious and who knows where the next ax will fall.
