Jamie Gold dropped from Bodog’s roster of poker pros

by Lou on January 25, 2007

Jamie Gold, the 2006 World Series of Poker champion, was apparently dumped by Bodog from their roster of poker professionals.

A statement issued by Bodog says,

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

While releasing Gold (pictured in happier days wearing a Bodog cap with Crispin Leyser, before Leyser sued Gold for half his WSOP winnings) doesn’t seem unusual under current circumstances, Bodog is apparently retaining their business relationships with players David Williams, Josh Arieh, and Evelyn Ng.
