Posted on 24 May 2013 by "T".

Jamie Gold, 43, won the World Series of Poker Main Event in 2006 and took home an incredible $12 million! The 2006 Main Event was played during the height of poker's popularity and Gold outlasted 8,722 other players (the biggest main event in WSOP history). A few days ago, The Heritage Auctions wrote that Jamie Gold's gold bracelet from the epic win will be up for grabs at an auction in Rosemont, Illinois, August 1-2, 2013. 

The bracelet is described on the site as having "259 stones including over seven carats of diamonds and 120 grams of white and yellow gold. Rubies are inset to create the red of the heart and diamond suits, while a sapphire represents the spade and three black diamonds the clubs."

Neither Gold nor Heritage Auctions have commented on why the bracelet is for sale, but many believe it's another of Gold's ideas to raise money for charity.

In a recent interview, the 78-year-old poker legend Doyle Brunson revealed that he lost his scooter when leaving the Rio (Las Vegas) early in the morning after Day 1 of the Main Event.

"It flew off the lift on my Escalade as I was leaving the Rio after day 1 of the Main Event. It was about 2 o'clock in the morning and as I made a sharp left on Flamingo I heard a strange noise behind me. I looked back and couldn't see anything but I suspected my scooter had broken loose. The traffic was so bad I couldn't turn back, so I continued home where I could see the lift had malfunctioned and the scooter was gone." said Doyle Brunson

Sam Trickett robbed at the World Series of Poker

Posted on 01 June 2012 by "T".

Apparently the high-stakes profile Sam Trickett was robbed at the 2012 WSOP on Wednesday this week. Now you might think that he was pickpocked by a stranger on the street or something like that, but that is not the case. Sam Trickett twittered the following about the incident.

There are already some people speculating about the identity of the "well-known pro". However, we won't post any of that here as it might drag an innocent man or women's identity through the mud. In other words, we will wait and see if Trickett writes it himself.

Posted on 24 May 2012 by "T".

In an interview that was published 22/5, 11-time WSOP bracelet winner Phil Hellmuth said that there is a big chance that he will play the $1,000,000 buy-in event Big One for One Drop at this summer's WSOP because he has found stakers to pay a large chunk of the massive buy-in.

Phil Hellmuth: I haven't even tried to raise money for the "Big One" yet. Then I talked to just one guy and I got a text from him: "I am thinking about buying a piece of you for the Big One. I put up $250,000." I just wrote back: "Thank you!"

November 9 countdown - 3 days: Joseph Cada

Tags: final table, Joseph Cada, main event, november 9, world series of poker, wsop
Posted on 04 November 2009 by "T".

Joseph Cada is only 21 years old and the youngest player on the final table. Joseph has been playing poker for 6 years and he started playing poker online at Party Poker at the age of 16. After that, he has achieved a lot in different tournaments at Full Tilt poker. This year Joseph Cada played his very first World Series and took the world of poker by storm as he made it to 2 final tables!

On Saturday Joseph and the other 8 remaining players will have hundreds of thousands people from all over the globe watching them. It will be very interesting to see if Joseph can handle the pressure like he said he could in an interview some time ago.

After some research about Joseph Cada it stands clear that he's one of the November 9 players that people talk the most about on different forums and websites. Many think that he won't have a chance on the final table, when others think that he has a great chance of becoming one of the last remaining players, but maybe not another Peter Eastgate.

Posted on 04 November 2009 by "T".

Jeff Shulman, 34, was born and bred in Seattle, Washington and later on in life he moved to Las Vegas, where he's still living today with his wife and child. Jeff's biggest interests are golf, poker, and his job as editor for a big poker magazine, which his dad is the CEO of. But it's not from playing golf, or his job as an editor that has made him rich and famous.

Made millions from playing poker
When Jeff started playing poker in 3rd grade at summer camp, he probably couldn't even dream of how successful he would become in poker some years after. Jeff became a good all-round player, but especially good at playing live poker tournaments, and it's from that he has built a fortune. In total he has won over $2,4 millions from different events in EPT, WPT, WSOP etc. Even though he has made so much money from different live tournaments, he has only won 1 major tournament.

Posted on 03 November 2009 by "T".

Eric Buchman, 29, from Valley Stream, New York started playing poker 10 years ago and was in the beginning just a break even player. But it only took him 2 years until he started winning. During his career as pro he has achieved quite a lot. For example he has cashed 9 times in WSOP and also has some great results from online poker cash games. In the beginning of the Main Event, Eric just had the strategy to survive to the next day. But on the last day of the tournament he changed his tactic and tried to accumulate as much chips as possible so he would put himself in a position to win the tournament. As the final table kicks off on Saturday, Eric is on second place with 34,800,000 chips.
