Ben Lamb (20,875,000)
 
If there's one name that was prominent in the 2011 World Series of Poker, it was that of "Benba" Ben Lamb, who enjoyed an extraordinarily good run at poker's most prestigious live event this year, and ended up as WSOP's Player of the Year
 
Originally from Tulsa, Oklahoma, Lamb (26) now lives in Las Vegas, where he plays professionally, mainly as a PLO ace and cash game specialist.
 
He has cashed four times in preliminary WSOP events this year including three final tables, one a bracelet win, and has accumulated over $1.3 million in cashes at this year's WSOP alone. In 2010 he finished deep in three WSOP events.
 
No stranger to the main event, he managed a 14th placing in the 2009 edition.
 
In an impressive live tourney career he has amassed over $2.5 million in 34 cashes that include six first place finishes, and as an online crusher he has earned a total of almost $1,132,000.
 
Six years ago Lamb quit his studies at Trinity University in San Antonio to concentrate on his poker career, moving to Las Vegas.
