IRVINE, CA – September 4, 2008 – CasinoAffiliatePrograms.com (CAP), a leading online marketing resource and community website for Internet casino affiliates, has announced that 2006 World Series of Poker Champion Jamie Gold is to be the keynote speaker for CAP Euro: Barcelona, its upcoming international four-day industry conference
In addition to delivering the conference’s key note speech on Saturday, September 27, Gold will also be running an exclusive poker coaching session for the Affiliate Series of Poker (ASOP) qualifiers and an autograph signing session. The winner of the biggest pot ever in WSOP history, Mr. Gold is also a television producer and talent agent. He will be at Cap Euro: Barcelona for all three days of the conference.
"There's no doubt that the explosion of poker around the world is directly connected to the emergence and phenomenal success of online poker,” Mr. Gold commented. “As well as making the game far more accessible, it has taken poker to entirely new levels, has fueled worldwide exposure through mainstream TV sponsorship, and along the way provided tutorage of game play and strategy.
“In short, it has turned the back-room game into front-room entertainment and, more importantly, a seemingly recession-proof global industry. And as the one lucky enough to receive the biggest payout in history, it would be remiss of me not to mention the dramatic effect online poker has had on building the number of major tournaments, players and, of course, prize money!
“It's indeed an honor to follow the legend, Doyle Brunson, in being the key note speaker at this year's CAP Euro convention. I look forward to participating in discussions on how to maintain online
poker's momentum — and to personally thank all of you for helping make poker the global success it is today."
