2013 World Series of Poker

Event #62: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Main Event

Gold and Lee Re-Unite

• Nivå 6: 250-500, 50 ante
Jamie Gold (from Day 1c)

Table 441 in Amazon Purple is located directly in front of the PokerNews blogging desk, and when we looked at the seating draw we were happy to see 2006 World Champion Jamie Gold located in Seat 8 with 41,400.

However, just three seats to Gold's right is someone that isn't as well known, but still has his place in WSOP history as Richard Lee sits with 56,800. Back in 2006 when Jamie Gold collected $12,000,000 for besting 8,773 entrants, Lee finished in 6th place for $2,803,851.

Since then Lee has added a further six WSOP cashes and pushed his career earnings to being just shy of $3 million. Gold on the other hand hasn't had as much success with only an additional four cashes and roughly a further $180,000 in career lifetime earnings.

However with both players re-uniting today, maybe they can emulate the runs they both had back in 2006 and join the elusive club of players making two WSOP Main Event final tables.
