About the Author
Blair Rodman made a name for himself in the 2004 World Series of Poker, where he made it into the prize money six times and played at three final tables. He topped it off with a terrific five-day run in the World Championship, eventually finishing 54th out of 2,576 players (one spot behind the legendary Doyle Brunson). Blair continued the pace in 2005, making two final tables on the WSOP circuit and finishing second in the World Poker Tour finale at the Reno Hilton for a $327,000 payday. Blair is currently ranked 10th in the world in the 2005 World Poker standings. Lee Nelson is the top-rated tournament poker player in Australia and Asia, named the Austral-Asia Grand Champion for 2000-2005. In 2005, Lee won the Party Poker World Open with a $400,000 first prize, the $120,000 High-stakes Speed Poker event, and the 7-card stud championship at the Aussie Millions, as well as the pot-limit Omaha event at the Irish Open. Lee also took down the no-limit hold 'em tournament at the St. Maarten Open in late 2004.
