Ben Lamb Poker Blog

By dicky on Wednesday, October 26, 2011
Ben Lamb, born on March 31, 1985 has been a professional poker player since 2004. Living his childhood in Tulsa, Oklahoma and attending Jenks High School, he has come along way from the slow conservative Midwest lifestyle to the 24 hour high paced lifestyle of the Sin City, Las Vegas, Nevada. While he initially attended college at Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas, he fairly quickly learned that college was not for him. He moved back to Tulsa, Oklahoma where he became a dealer at Tulsa's Cherokee Casino (now know as the Hard Rock Casino). In his time as a dealer, he quickly learned and took a liking to poker. He became a local known poker celebrity in Tulsa's casinos as he became a poker shark there and had won several tournaments.

Back in November of 2006, Ben Lamb won not only the Pot Limit Holdem Tournament at the Cherokee Casino Fall Poker Classic, but 4 days later won the Pot Limit Omaha tournament in the Cherokee Casio Fall Poker Classic as well. With a few more notable placements in the Oklahoma State Championship of Poker 4 months later in February (2nd place in the Pot Limit Hold'em State Championship and 9th place in the Oklahoma State Championship Main Event), Ben Lamb was ready to take on Vegas.
