"Ladies and gentleman, I would like to take a moment to point out a man who's been at every World Series of Poker for 41 years and counting," Nolan Dalla just announced inside the Amazon Room.
Howard 'Tahoe' Andrew is seated at a table in the Tan section where he will battle it out today with the likes of Alexander Kuzmin, Aaron Massey, Jameson Painter and Max Lykov.
Since 1973, Andrew has played in at least one World Series of Poker event every year, his best being 1976 when he won two bracelets. On the list of results of both tournaments he managed to win, no other players are listed, indicating it was a winner-take-all format.
Andrew made the 1984 WSOP Main Event final table, won by Jack Keller, and cashed in 1987, 1992 and 2004. In the 2003 Senior's Event, Andrew finished 8th followed by cashes in 2007 and 2010. In total, Tahoe has 254 tournament results and is just shy of $1.5 million in career earnings.
