The level of insight and analysis you've shown in your post is incomprehensible.
Cheers!

Jamie Gold is the 2006 World series of Poker champion. His striking success at the no doubt comes as a surprise to most players and casual poker fans, but his WSOP success came on the heels of eight final table finishes in the previous sixteen months, including five at the Bicycle Casino where I used to work, most notably a first place in a No Limit Holdem event at the Stars and Stripes tournament series worth $54,000. Jamie's aggressive big stack play at the WSOP, while holding about 30% of the chips going into the final table play, no doubt was helped by his California experience. Likewise, more than any other player at the final table besides Allen Cunningham, he had considerable live casino experience playing in large field tournaments. In fact, Jamie had more final table experience than the rest of the WSOP final table players put together, except Cunningham. (Besides his win, he also had a second place at Hollywood Park and a third place finish at the Bicycle Casino.) That is not a small advantage in these large multi-day events, where no matter how many players you eliminate, it always seems like there are more and more moving to your table. A lot of players eventually crack and make a mistake, or after running well above average, all of a sudden think they can dodge bullets for all their stack. Jamie consistently played for a portion of his stack against players who had to commit all of theirs. When this happens, you either win a small pot 100% of the time, or contest a medium (for you) size pot. Aggressive big stack play against the middling sized stacks is required to keep getting through the many players continually thrown at you. You can't sit on your chips in California tournaments -- which tend to start later in the day and have faster structures but with more starting chips than Nevada tournaments.

Well said by Vaughn, you dont outlast more than 8 thousand people without being good, even though you get good cards you have to play them right.

Jamie Gold deserved to win!!!!! From day four he was the outright chip leader by far, and to keep the chip lead for the rest of the tournament is a feat. HE WAS THE BEST PLAYER!!!

Jamie Gold must be a decent player to make it so far in the tournament, but he is terrible at life. Also, he is not a good person to have as the champion of poker for a year. He looks like a money-grubbing, two-timing, smart mouth. And most of all who talks that to other players when you are a nobody? "I had top top." "You should fold." God he is the most annoying player I have ever seen.

No comments on Jamie Gold... let just say he's a very lucky player but personally i really don't like him and his play.

Vaughn did post some great information that some should read before they go and run their mouth and say he is an amature. I myself did not like his personality or his style of play. You have to say that he is a better poker player than Moneymaker. You also have to relize they cut the shit out of the game for T.V. Some of that mouth was foul..."Top top..fold" What a clown...I'm sure most would have won the tournament with the cards we was catching but it is a long tournament and what you see on T.V. is what mayby 2% of the hands thru the tournament. You actually think he caught caught caught like that thru the whole tournament..please. Impossible. I do hope a professional wins next year.

I've never understood why some people want to bash players like Gold, Raymer and Moneymaker. Doing so doesn't make the naysayers any better as players, and one might say it makes them worse as human beings.

Yes But Jamie Gold was extremely lucky at the WSOP - dont forget that....... One more question to you vaughn. Are you the same player as Podmo
