Ben Lamb

Ben Lamb's poker resume is easily the most extensive of the remaining players, including more than $2.5 million in career winnings and numerous World Series of Poker successes. "Benba" earned his first WSOP bracelet this summer in the $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Championship, and added a couple more final tables to put himself in first place in this year's WSOP Player of the Year race.

Lamb is originally from Tulsa, Oklahoma, but now resides in Las Vegas, Nevada. Outside of this year's Main Event run, Lamb has 12 other WSOP cashes. Back in 2009, Lamb almost made the final table of the Main Event, but fell short in 14th place for $633,022. That was the year Joe Cada took home the title.

Outside of Lamb's WSOP success, he's only had three other scores above $50,000. In 2006, Lamb won the $1,000 event at the Scotty Nguyen Poker Challenge for $53,671. He also won a $500 event at the United States Poker Championship later that same year for $60,000. His other non-WSOP score above $50,000 was a second-place finish in the $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha event at the 2009 Festa al Lago for $62,080, an event he actually chopped with Ted Lawson.

Lamb is a regular in the largest cash games in Las Vegas, mainly playing in Ivey's Room at Aria with some of the best players in the world. He's also an avid golfer.
