Jamie Gold's Father Succumbs to ALSEarly Thursday morning, Wicked Chops Poker received word from a friend of Jamie Gold that Dr. Robert Gold, the father of the 2006 WSOP Main event champ, had passed away at the age of 76. As most know, Jamie's father was battling ALS, the crippling neurodegenerative disease commonly referred to as Lou Gehrig's Disease.According to Gold's friend, Jamie was set to play the Five Diamond World Poker Classic in Las Vegas and had just landed at McCarran Airport when he got the news from his mom and caught the next flight home. Jamie Gold's father became an integral part of Gold's WSOP story after Jamie pledged to use the money from his winnings to make his father as comfortable as possible and when Gold called him from the final table immediately after winning.

My father passed away when I was small. That night I was watching the final table live. When Gold said "Dad I wish you were here", I choked in tears.

Like you didn't do that on purpose.

We are both being judgmental, the only difference is my judgments are well reasoned, well presented and actually have something to do with reality whereas yours are inane assumption wrapped in a steaming pile of contradiction.

Just like I knew Showstopper would be posting on here, I almost immediately knew that your post would follow. It's like a 1-2 punch.

The only thing I saw during the entire broadcast of the 2006 WSOP that didn't make me think Jamie Gold is a giant **** was the way he talked about his father, and the phone call he made after he won. Death sucks. RIP.

Wasn't being a scumbag, I feel bad for him losing his father. It still doesn't change my opinion of Jamie Gold as a person though.
