Jamie Gold – 12.238.161 $

The life of professional poker player Jamie Gold is divided between the entertainment business and the gambling area.

Building a career first as a talent agent and then switching into management and production, the 45 year old Malibu resident is known in the poker industry for the way he manages to force his opponents to take the path he wants.

He did the same when he won the largest prize in poker history, the 2006 World Series of poker.

After taking home 12 million dollars he divided his life between several new activities.

He left the life of a professional poker player in the background being present only at main events or local events, and started to devote the rest of the time to follow his second career as a television producer.

But the famous poker player didn’t stop here and wanted to do something with poker, starting to make appearances at charity events and wanting to promote even his own event.

With earnings of 12.238.161 Jamie left the poker career aside and dreamed of creating his own charity tournament for the rare disease named  Lou Gehrig’s disease.
