It is now being reported that The Borgota Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City, NJ is going after Jamie Gold again. Back in 2006 when Jamie Gold won the World Series of Poker main event and won $12 million, he (Jamie Gold) had a lot of trouble. There was a huge lawsuit involved. The lawsuit began when Bruce Crispin Leyser, a television company executive, made a verbal agreement with Jamie Gold prior to the start of the 2006 World Series of Poker Main Event. The agreement was made in a brief telephone call between the two men which took place shortly before the final day of tournament. In both exchanges, Bruce Crispin Leyser alleged that Jamie agreed to split whatever prize money was won.

Just prior to the 2006 WSOP, Bodog.com Entertainment and Gold entered into a business relationship when Gold agreed to find celebrities willing to play in the main event under the Bodog banner in exchange for a paid entry into the main event. Gold partnered with Crispin Leyser to help with this task in exchange for half of Gold’s winnings, according to Leyser. After Gold won, Leyser says that Gold reneged on the deal and had decided to keep the entire $12 million prize. Leyser sued Gold on August 22, 2006 which resulted in Chief U.S. District Court Judge Kathy Hardcastle issuing a restraining order which prevented Gold from collecting $6 million of his winnings from Rio Hotel and Casino before the first hearing of the lawsuit on December 1, 2006. At the December court hearing, U.S. District Court Judge Roger L. Hunt rejected a motion by Gold’s lawyers to lift the restraining order on the $6 million and ordered the frozen funds be moved into an interest-bearing account, saying that the “likelihood to prevail” lay with Leyser.

Gold did a radio interview on Rounders the Poker Show  following his Main Event win where he mentioned his deal with Leyser. It was later entered into evidence for the lawsuit. On February 6, 2007, Leyser and Gold released a joint statement stating they had settled the matter outside of court. The amount of the settlement was not disclosed. On January 25, 2007, Bodog ended their business relationship with Gold, citing their decision to cease all offline marketing initiatives in the U.S., and instead refocus their efforts on growing their entertainment brand in Europe and Asia. Despite that reason for ending their business relationship, Bodog still retained David Williams, Josh Arieh, and Evelyn Ng as Team Bodog members.

Now the owners of the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City, NJ are going after Jamie Gold again. The Borgota won a default judgement against Gold for $52,279.47 in a New Jersey Court in 2010 for a bounced check (according to the Borgota). The only problem is that Jamie Gold lives in California. Earlier this month the Borgota filed papers in California to get the judgement that was won in New jersey; and have it enforced in the state of California. According to TMZ, their calls to Jamie Gold reps were not returned as of yet.
