I can’t wait. Jamie Gold is back in full force in Las Vegas with the launch of the Jamie Gold Poker Room at the Tropicana in Las Vegas. “The Trop” as the locals call it is a long-time favorite for many people (including myself), and I can’t wait to set foot in the newly renovated poker room and casino.
I’m leaving for Las Vegas in a couple days and hope to sit down with the champ himself in some 2/5 or 5/10 No Limit action.
From what I’ve heard on Twitter, the action is great and some of the low-stakes pros in Las Vegas are having a ball.
I’ll also try and get some great photos of the room and post back when I get back from Vegas next week!

Jamie is generous, Jamie feels bad about all the controversy after his WSOP win, Jamie is not the most stable poker player alive.

Here’s a ten minute video in which Jamie Gold quickly loses a couple $10,000 buy-ins. Some of the plays he makes are just plain questionable:
- First big pot he gets in with AT, he re-raises the UTG attacker all-in on the turn when the K hits the J63 board. The King could be a scare card, but a KJ63 board isn’t really too safe when you’re playing a raised pot. His all-in is a pure bluff obviously (even though he did have a gutshot), and his opponent quickly called with J4. JACK 4. That’s how much he’s onto Jamie in this hand.
- Jamie reloads to $10,000, and gets involved in this hand: Jamie calls a raise on the BB when the flop hits Q84. The flop is bet UTG and Jamie calls. K hits the turn, UTG checks, Jamie bets pot (1.1k) and gets raised BIG (+3k). Jamie calls sending the pot over $7.5k. UTG shoves the river, Jamie goes into the tank and calls off his last $6300 with AK, losing to a full boat. Lesson for Jamie: Floating is dangerous.
- Two hands later (reloaded for another ten Grand) BIG bluffs the river with Qx (a hand he should have just mucked,…), going broke against two pair (making an excellent call).
- Jamie rebuys again, (now with a full table, all here to take some Jamie-money, I’m sure), shoves the next hand with middle pair on a 4-card straight board – going broke again…
I mean, Jamie…. I’m a huge fan, but he was obviously steaming SICK and not playing even close to his best game. My feel: Jamie should really slow down and play the tournaments… The online poker cash games are probably a bit too tough for him…

When you enter a casino in Las Vegas or in any other big City you will be struck by the sheer options you have with choosing the Casino games. This is of course the same when you enter a online casino or online poker room.
The games you can choose from is unending. The rows of slot machines in a Casino are huge. When playing in a good Casino en ligne you will also find a fine collection of slot machines.
If you look at the Blackjack tables in a Casino or online Casino they are packed with action.
Every self respecting Casino and online casino has it’s own Poker section these days. Poker has become very populair and is a very good viewing sport. If you play online poker or poker online you should also try to play the live poker in the casinos. The thrill of playing live poker is the best there is. So go to your Casino or Casino on-line and play Poker.

Haven’t heard too much on Jamie Gold as of lately. He is probably busy running his entertainment business or bluffing away in online poker.
Either way just wanted to mention I have been playing online recently and one of the players told me about rakeback. I have never used it before but looked into it and found out there are actually lots of offers and bonuses out there for all sorts of different poker rooms.
Rakebrain.com for example even runs free rolls for their special members and so on. I found them to come in pretty useful in my research. If you guys know more about this rakeback matter feel free to comment on this. Wonder if Jamie has a rakeback program haha…

Prahlad Friedman is so sick. He KNOWS what Jamie most likely had but couldn’t make the call because it cost him too much… Very sick.
Jamie got Prahlad to fold simply by messing with his head. Who said Jamie wasn’t a Poker Genius? GUESS AGAIN!

Now I’m a huge Jamie fan but this isn’t Jamie Gold is it? Complaining about people overplaying hands, calling out for a run of cards, etc… Come on Jamie — that’s what you want. People have to overplay their hands — it’s what makes you so much more likely to win than those morons. Let them overplay their hands — and take their money.
I do like it when he talks about the troubles of celeb life… I’m so sure it gets tough for Jamie…
Good to see a mention of Mitch Abrams too by the way. Senior year’s best friend of Jamie and long-time buddy.

PPPPoker.com has just posted about High Stakes Poker Season 5, and according to GSN Board Member Michael Zeisser there will be no more No-Limit Texas Hold’em on the show.
I believe this will mean we won’t be seeing Mr. Jamie Gold on the next HSP season. Who can we expect? Sam Farha is obviously a huge Omaha player, but so are Daniel Negreanu, David Benyamine, ….
This should prove to be excellent tv, though…

Alan “Boston” Dvorkis thinks he’s so much better than Jamie and thinks he should share that with the rest of the world by berating an excellent play by Jamie who probably sensed weakness from the cap-wearing complainatron.
“That’s just not even poker”; donkey says.
Idiot — enjoy a great video and a great play by Jamie.
Mike Sexton and Mike Matusow rightfully think this is funny too.

Both Sam Farha and Jamie Gold feel like they’re playing like a genius pre-flop (which I believe they both are, this is superstar poker by both of them, rightfully thinking they have the best hand) – but it’s cold deck for Jamie. From the turn on, Jamie realizes he might be up against AA and he manages to push Sammy off of his game and save some money that was going in anyway.
This is the strength of Jamie Gold. Played this great.
