Blair Rodman is a pro poker player. He was born in 1954 in Athens New York. His home now is in Las Vegas Nevada.
Rodman is one of the more seasoned players on the tour. He has been playing the game professionally since 1985. Along with other interests Rodman is known for his golf ventures and other gambling sprees.
His total lifetime earnings are over $2.4 million. His main foray is the WSOP, but he does have some success on the WPT and smaller circuit events.
His WSOP earnings are $1.5 million. He has 45 cashes along with 11 final tables. He has been playing the WSOP since 85 and he finally won his first bracelet in 2007 after almost 20 years. His bracelet would be his first and only to date. As well as his biggest cash.
He would take home over $700,000 for his win. The victory came in a no limit hold em event after defeating more than 2,000 players.
In his lone final table on the WPT he would wind up finishing in 2nd. His take home for that day was $327K. He would outlast fellow pros Phil Ivey and Barry Greenstein along the way. This would be Blair's one and only cash on the WPT.
Before becoming a professional player, Rodman spent his days as a Craps dealer in the casinos of Vegas. He would take a liking to the game and decided to make the switch form dealer to player in 1985.
Blair has other ventures in the poker community that include co-authoring the infamous 'Kill Phil' book with Lee Nelson. At a time when Phil Hellmuth was everywhere, the book took a marketing approach that seemed to work well.
Nowhere in the book does anyone mention to kill Phil, it's more of a lighthearted joke at Hellmuth and his way of playing poker.
