Jamie Gold Loses Another Endorsement - So What Else is New?
News has just been released out that Jamie Gold has lost his much publicized agreement with Aced.com poker. Gold and his representatives claim that Aced has not provided payment in connection with promotional services he and his agent provided during an Oscar Nightâs poker event and at the Irish Poker Open.
This is the second endorsement dealt that has gone sour for Gold since winning the Main Event. He originally had a deal with Bodog.com, but anyone with a brain could have told you that he wasnât going to last after the whole controversy between him and Bruce Leyser.
In a way itâs sad that the Main Event winner from the largest field of all time cannot find and keep an endorsement deal. However, a lot probably has to do with the fact that he could not complete the terms of a simple staking contract. In poker, your word is your bond. When you fail to keep it, your reputation in many cases is irreparably ruined.
Karma can be a bitch. Jamieâs word was not âgood as Gold,â so now it seems everything he touches turns to lead.
