Re: Jamie Gold

I would be a fool not to pay $400 to learn from the best bluffer in the world.

He put a move on Johnny Chan.

I do think he got lucky as all hell, but look at some of the other winners. Cada and Moneymaker seemed more lucky than Gold, but I'd have to go back and watch them.
I think Cada was more of a luckbox than Gold. Though that is just from what we saw on TV. Though I am sure he was on his A game most of the time

Hypothetically speaking though lets say he is Busto. Want is wrong with him offering to teach people to play poker. Hellmuth does it. How many books have been written on it by so many pros. Sometimes shocks me how hated he is for winning a WSOP Mian Event. I am sure even Tom "God" Dwan would say he must have done something right to win the biggest field.

What shocks me is that anyone could have 10k+ posts on 2+2 and be shocked by hate for Jamie Gold.

I understand the lack of respect for his game. But people worship Dwan and defend him for not paying out a million bucks he promissed to. I think its an age demographic that just doesnt like Gold.

Would I pay $400 to have him teach me poker not a hope in hell. Do I hate him no. Though I do think he had to do a few things right to win the WSOP main event.

Re: Jamie Gold

I played with Jamie a bunch recently and although I would never take lessons about actual poker from him, I'm sure there is value in his opinion on ways to prepare for your sessions and grinding it out. Also, he is amazing action for the game I would recommend sitting with him whenever you have the chance.

People would be more inclined to participate if story telling was the gimmick and not poker strategy.

Re: Jamie Gold

I played with him at New Year's in the 2-5 game at the Trop. Still don't understand why people hate on him. He was nothing but nice and personable the whole time. And, he also dumped 3 buyins over an hour and a half to the table. What is there not to like?

Sure you will...

Has anyone even thought that he is doing the seminars just for the love of the game and not for monetary gain?

No my math isn't wrong. That poor soul deserves 400 for at least sitting there listening to it.
