Biography

Adam Friedman is an American poker player and five-time World Series of Poker (WSOP) bracelet winner.

After winning his first bracelet during the 2012 WSOP, Friedman then won the $10,000 Dealer’s Choice Championship in back-to-back-to-back years (2018, 2019 & 2021), a feat no other player had ever accomplished.

In 2022, he added a fifth WSOP bracelet in Event #22: $10,000 Seven Card Stud Championship.

Poker Achievements

Friedman shot to prominence back in 2005 after an infamous hand in that year’s Main Event was shown on the ESPN broadcast.

During the 2000s, he regularly cashed in mixed game tournaments, including finishing 10th and 14th in the $10,000 8-Game Championships at the 2008 and 2009 WSOP respectively. He followed that up with a third-place finish in the $1,500 H.O.R.S.E in 2011 before winning his first bracelet in 2012.

He defeated Todd Brunson heads-up to win Event #15: $5,000 Seven Card Stud Hi/Lo for $269,037.

A regular attendee of the WSOP, Friedman narrowly missed out on a second bracelet in 2016 after finishing second in the $1,500 Seven Card Stud.

The Streak

Adam_FriedmanIn 2018, Friedman took down Event #18: $10,000 Dealer’s Choice for $293,275. He defeated Stuart Rutter heads-up.

“In terms of the $10K, this one is right up there. You need to know how to play 20 games. How many people are at least competent in at least 20 games? Not many. I think this takes as much skill as any other event,” Friedman said at the time.

The following year, Friedman achieved the rare achievement of defending a WSOP title in the Dealer’s Choice Championship, this time defeating Shaun Deeb heads-up. His back-to-back feat saw him defeat a field of 122 players and take home $312,417.

“This year definitely means more (than last year). Being able to repeat in what I still believe is the most difficult of the $10k’s to play,” said Friedman after the win.

After the COVID-19 pandemic saw the postponement of the 2020 WSOP, the festival returned in 2021. Once again, the $10,000 Dealer’s Choice Championship was on the schedule. Friedman unbelievably made it three-in-a-row, defeating Phil Hellmuth heads-up and denying the poker legend a second bracelet of the year.
