Biography

Ted Lawson has been putting up solid tournament numbers for a few years now. Back in 2004, he won his first WSOP gold bracelet after taking down the $5,000 Pot-Limit Omaha event for $500,000. To win the bracelet, Lawson had to maneuver through a final table including Jeff Lisandro, Daniel Negreanu, Howard Lederer, Freddy Deeb, and Lee Watkinson. One might remember the coverage on ESPN of the final table where at one point, Lawson actually misread his hand, claiming he held a straight when he ddin’t.

A year later, Lawson cashed five times at the 2005 WSOP. His best finish that year was a sixth place in the $1,500 No-Limit Hold’em Shootout for over $43,000. In 2006, Ted cashed three more times including an in-the-money finish in the Main Event.

In 2007, Lawson had his best year ever on the felt. He earned over $1.1 million total that year. He placed second in The Wynn Classic for nearly $385,000 and also placed second in an event at the Five-Star World Poker Classic for nearly $300,000. At that series in Las Vegas, Lawson cashed for nearly $350,000 total. Later on in the year, Ted took seventh in the EPT Baden Classic for over $115,000.

A couple more six-figure scores landed in the lap of Lawson in 2008. He first finished runner up at the Five-Star World Poker Classic for over $120,000. During the same month, he took down an event at the WSOP Circuit Caesars Palace for over $120,000. Four more WSOP cashes happened as well for Lawson this year.

In total, Lawson is the proud winner of over $2.25 million in tournaments.
