Jamie Gold will always be remembered for his massive $12 million win at the World Series of Poker in 2006.
But “champ” might not be the first word that comes to casino exec’s minds if they were to see him in Atlantic City.
(hint: the first syllable rhymes with red).
Seems Gold is on the hook for more than $50,000 he may owe the Borgata after allegedly bouncing a check in 2010.
TMZ, which has been getting a lot of good poker stories lately, reports that:
“According to papers filed in Los Angeles Superior Court earlier this month, the owners of the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City, NJ won a default judgment against Gold for $52,279.47 back in 2010 — after the casino claimed Gold bounced a check there.
The casino won the judgment against Gold in New Jersey, but he lives in California — so the casino has now filed papers in California to get the judgment enforced there. A judge has yet to rule.”
It should be pointed out that there were reports after Gold’s 2006 win that a number of entities sued him claiming Gold owed them money. Those cases were reportedly settled out of court.
