Casino to Poker Star: 'Memba the $50k You Owe Us?

6/26/2011 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

World Series of Poker champ Jamie Gold took home $6 million when he won the title back in 2006 -- and a casino in New Jersey hopes he has at least $50k of it left ... cause that's what they say he owes them.

According to papers filed in Los Angeles Superior Court earlier this month, the owners of the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City, NJ won a default judgment against Gold for $52,279.47 back in 2010 -- after the casino claimed Gold bounced a check there. 

The casino won the judgment against Gold in New Jersey, but he lives in California -- so the casino has now filed papers in California to get the judgment enforced there. A judge has yet to rule. 

Calls to Gold's reps were not immediately returned.

Screw this guy. He probably DOES owe to 50K. Like most of these celebu-retards or whatever he is - like Tobey - he just...doesn't...have...the...money...you...want...him...to...have. Broke "stars." awesome.

Since gambling is legal in this case, can't the casino go after him criminally? Bouncing a check is a crime, so the casino should be able to make this a criminal matter as well as the civil case that it already pursued.

Smal mistake, it was 12 Million he won back in 2006. He lost a lot of money in cash games and in backing of other players, but i think he stil has some money to pay the casino he ows.

Actually he won $12 million but he had to split the winnings with the guy who staked him the $10 grand. He tried to get out of giving that guy his money too.
