Robert Williamson III, 5x7 with stand

Price: $50.00


Born in Dallas, Texas in 1970, raised in Granbury, and now living again in Dallas, Robert Williamson III started learning poker from his father at age five. Just a few years later he began playing Vegas with a bankroll of $10,000, even though he was under-aged. Not surprisingly, despite having graduated from Angelo State University in San Angelo, TX in 1994 with degrees in both finance and real estate, and working as a real estate developer and restaurateur, Williamson went on to become a professional gambler.

Nowadays the gregarious Robert Williamson III is famous in the poker circuit as an Omaha specialist, or "Mr. Omaha," due to his notable finishes in Omaha tournaments, including winning the 2002 WSOP Pot-Limit Omaha and taking 2nd in 2004 and 2005. In fact, Williamson's total lifetime earnings from Omaha tournaments exceed those of any person in the history of poker.

Although he certainly excels at tournaments, Williamson occasionally enjoys "side action," such as triple-draw lowball, mixed games ($100-$200 to $400-$800), and pot-limit $50-$100.
