Well it seems to apply to Jamie Gold’s team of publicists at B|W|R , the firm that was hired by Gold the day before
Anyway, below is the lame, boilerplate statement from Alfred Hopton at B|W|R :
‚ÄúJamie Gold is disappointed that the plaintiff, a person he has only known since July of this year, has elected to file litigation rather than continue the parties’ discussions in an effort to find a resolution to this matter.
“Mr. Gold believes strongly in the American judicial system and believes that it is better to present his case there than to try the matter before the court of public opinion.
“He is pleased to have had the opportunity to participate and win the World Series of Poker and is pleased with the quality of the tournament, his outstanding opponents, and Harrahs, the event organizer. Mr. Gold further appreciates the support of his fans and sponsor, bodog.net, and hopes that this unfortunate litigation will not detract from the outstanding efforts of the entire field of participants in the World Series of Poker.”
