Breaking News: Bodog Issues Statement On Split with Jamie Gold

It’s now official. and embattled 2006 WSOP champ Jamie Gold have split ways. The online gaming site said today that the “Hottest Mom in America” producer sued for half of his $12 million winnings will no longer be a part of Bodog’s pro team that includes David Williams, Josh Arieh and Evelyn Ng.

In an official statement today on the split, said:

“In light of its decision to cease all offline marketing initiatives in the U.S., and instead refocus its efforts on growing its entertainment brand in Europe and Asia, Bodog has ended its business relationship with Jamie Gold. Bodog has enjoyed our association with Mr. Gold and wishes him the best of luck in his future endeavors.”

Whether those future endeavors will include Gold starting a Team Buzznation poker team consisting of himself and anyone who can stand to be on the same team as him is yet to be seen. There’s been no official word yet from the Gold camp, who we suspect are too busy still trying to fuck a football to get a statement out any time soon.

Relive all of the excitement, passion, glory and other emotions that don’t come remotely close to summing up the way you’ve felt about Jamie Gold over the past 6 months here at Wicked Chops Poker.

    I don’t buy it. They keep their other pro players 2 from America and 1 from Canada. Canada is supposed to be doing thier own form of prohibition also.
    There is something not being told here. Gold has had more face time than all 3 of those players combined in the last year.

    Hey Wayne, Gold’s had more face time than anyone because he won the WSOP and got sued for screwing someone over. Plus people love talking about douchebags. And Evy lives in the U.S. not Canada now and David Williams won a bracelet last year and I see him all over the place doing events and tournaments. My opinion is that this is the best thing for Bodog because Gold hasn’t brought any real goodwill to them as say Hachem, Raymer and Moneymaker brought to PokerStars. Some could argue he’s actually been a liability more than anything.

    The basic reason they dumpd him is that he was despised by most people who watched him play.
    Bodog was being hurt by the asssociation with this unethical smug card rack. I would nt trust my money with a site that has a guy like him as spokesman.
