Jamie Gold to be Face of the Tropicana’s Poker Room

by Lou on December 14, 2011

The Tropicana Las Vegas recently announced that 2006 WSOP main event winner Jamie Gold was named the casino’s poker spokesperson and that their redesigned poker room will be named “The Jamie Gold Poker Room.”

I think this is a terrific move.  Gold—a guy with personality plus—was born for a role like this.  And his unique ability to chat with anyone and his sense of humor and poker background will go a long way to providing a unique identity to the Trop’s redesigned room.

Gold plans to be on hand at the Tropicana every day until the mid-January re-launch of the poker room and will return at least once per month thereafter.  The poker room will offer the opportunity for anyone to actually sit down and play against Jamie Gold for as little as a $100 buy-in.

“This deal with Tropicana covers everything I could have ever wanted in a relationship with a major Las Vegas Strip resort and it will serve as my anchor and the conduit to all of my future poker and philanthropic endeavors,” Gold said. “I really couldn’t be more excited!”

The Trop has been undergoing a $100 million remodel, which includes a new poker room, and will offer free daily poker lessons at 9 a.m. and hold daily tournaments at 10 a.m., 2 p.m., 6 p.m., and 11 p.m.  While most of the games spread are hold’em, razz is offered on Tuesdays, HORSE is offered on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and dealer’s choice games are offered on Saturdays.
