Jamie Gold (born Jamie M. Usher) was born on August 25, 1969 in Kansas City, Missouri. Besides being a poker player, he is also a television producer and a talent agent in Malibu, California.
He is most known for his win of the 2006 World Series of Poker (WSOP) Main Event, where he took home $12,000,000. Today, since he also works as a producer for "Buzznation", he divides his time between work and playing poker, especially in major tournaments.
When he was young, Gold moved to Manhattan with his mother, who remarried to Dr. Robert Gold. It was then when Gold's last name (Usher) was changed by a court order to Gold.
