Biography

David Singer is a former lawyer and an American poker player, who turned professional in 2001.

Before taking up the felt as a full-time gig, Singer's legal dealings focused on environmental issues and was most known for helping the effort of cleaning up Long Island Sound.

A fan of jewellery, Singer can often be seen wearing his silver rings and often has one on each finger.

As it stands, he has $4,516,485 in total live earnings and has two World Series of Poker (WSOP) bracelets to his name.

World Series of Poker (WSOP)

Singer's first cash at the ninth annual WSOP in 1978, where he recorded a second-place finish in Event #2: $1,000 Limit Razz for $9,600. He lost to five-time bracelet winner Gary "Bones" Berland at heads-up play.

Over the next 30 years, Singer notched two-more runner up finishes and an extra seven final tables before winning his first WSOP bracelet in 2008 in Event #3: $1,500 Pot-Limit Hold'em. One of his WSOP final table appearances came in the 2003 WSOP Main Event, which was won by the person who birthed the poker boom, Chris Moneymaker

His next WSOP bracelet triumph took place at the 2017 WSOP in Event #14: $1,500 H.O.R.S.E. and he pocketed a cool $203,709 for his efforts.

Overall, Singer has racked up 47 cashes at the series, equating to $1,921,504 in earnings.

Other Achievements

Surprisingly, neither of Singer's bracelet wins enter his top five tournament paydays of all time. In 2007, he recorded his first and only seven-figure cash, taking down the Caesars Palace Classic - Championship Event.

A year before, he took home $436,200 for a bronze medal finish at the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure Main Event.
