Biography

Billy Baxter is an American poker player and seven-time World Series of Poker (WSOP) bracelet winner. Five of Baxter’s seven bracelets have come in 2-7 Draw.

He was inducted into the Poker Hall of Fame in 2006 and has amassed over $2.7 million in career earnings.

Baxter famously won a 1986 court case that argued that poker was a game of skill.

In 2010, Baxter narrowly missed out on a World Poker Tour title, finishing fifth for $246,921. This remains the largest cash of Baxter’s career.

More than a decade later, Baxter came within inches of winning his first Hold’em bracelet in the $1,000 Seniors Championship at the 2023 WSOP, finishing runner-up to Lonnie Hallett for $473,212.
