Read the full scoop here.

That's the stupidiest think i ever heard. How can you make such an agreement???
I think Jamie Gold didn't realize that he might win such an amount of money. It's true that he learned the basics from Chan... but did he learned Gold how toi win the wsop? I don't think so.
One over another this is a big blow for Gold.
