Adam Gerber has turned up in the field today and he's one we don't see very often. He runs his family's business and also coaches his kids little league team, which keeps him quite busy. He's got to spend time with the kids before they're all grown up, then he'll "have plenty of time to play poker".
He’s got more than $1 million in tournament earnings, and that’s considerable for an amateur player. Most of his earnings came from the 2007 US Poker Championships Championship event, which he won for more than $606,000. The final table in that event was star-studded with the likes of Svetlana Gromenkova, Victor Ramdin, and the late Gavin Smith, but Gerber came out on top.
Just a few weeks prior to that win, Gerber finished second in the 2007 Borgata Poker Open $5,000 NLH event, collecting more than $248,000.
