I think that it will be difficult to part with a Million here and a Million there. We're talking now about the plaintiff and then some big shot (high priced)lawyers. Then all the family and friends will come out of the wood work to get a piece of his action. Since he is a cutthroat gambler, competitive and probably getting greedy, I think that he will try and keep the whole enchilada.

Many time people who suddenly come upon millions (ie. lottery winners) end up broke within 3-5 years. They just lose track of how much they have spent / loaned / and given away.

Default Winnings controversy

Winnings controversy

Just prior to the 2006 WSOP, 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 and on August 22, 2006, Chief District Court Judge Kathy Hardcastle froze the payment of the funds as part of the ongoing legal dispute between Gold and Leyser. [18] At a December court hearing, U.S. District Court Judge Roger L. Hunt rejected a motion by Gold's lawyers to lift an injunction set in September on the $6 million still at the tournament host, the Rio casino-hotel, and ordered the frozen funds be moved into an interest-bearing account. Hunt also indicated Leyser likely would win his claim to the $6 million. Gold did a radio interview on Rounders the Poker Show [1] following his Main Event win where he mentioned his deal with Leyser. It was later entered into evidence for the lawsuit. On February 7, 2007, it was reported that the parties had settled, without divulging the amount.[19]

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. With Jerry Yang signing with Full Tilt Poker, Jamie Gold is the only main event champion since 2000 without an online poker sponsor.[20]

A verbal contract will hold up in court. People just don't see a lot of verbal contract disputes because they're hard to prove. I'm glad the business partner has the phone message as proof, but I'm not rooting for anybody in this suit. They're all crooks. (Well, besides Johnny Chan.)

Default oof!

thats awful for jamie, although he shouldnt have offered THAT much!
people do say that jamie fluked the WSOP.
i for one, believe he played some very good poker, even if he was a bit lucky.
Johnny should've got more of it than Leyser.
