“Thirty years ago, my journey into the world of poker commenced at The Commerce Casino & Hotel. It holds a special place in my heart as the first casino where I ever played, and where I clinched my inaugural tournament victory, long before records were kept,” said Jamie Gold. “My legend was born at The Commerce and my public legend was born at The World Series of Poker. Now, as The World Series of Poker joins hands with The Commerce Casino & Hotel, it feels like the merging of two pivotal chapters of my life. A real dream come true!”

Gold continues, “Stepping into the role of team captain for The Commerce Casino’s professional poker team fills me with a profound sense of honor and excitement. It’s not merely a duty, but a privilege to guide and mentor such a talented group of players. Together, we’ll fuse our strategic prowess, refined skills, and unwavering passion for the game to make an impact at the tables.”

Jonathan Ing, poker executive at The Commerce Casino & Hotel, praised Gold’s appointment: “As Commerce Casino & Hotel’s Team Captain for the WSOP 2023/2024 circuit, Jamie Gold brings a wealth of experience, strategic insight, and relentless determination to help lead our team to victory. We are honored to have him at the helm and eagerly anticipate the success that awaits under his leadership.”

Additionally, Jamie Gold will co-host a Beat the Legends event with 17-Time WSOP Bracelet winner Phil Hellmuth on May 21st. This event, pitting the two legends against the new 20-member Commerce Poker Pro Team, will be available to stream on GG Poker.
