About David Singer

David Singer
Name David Singer
Current Residence Mamaroneck N.Y.

Not every poker player relies on flash and antics along with their poker skills to make a name for themselves. Sometimes there are players, like David Singer, who earn their time in the spotlight just on poker accomplishments alone.

Singer has been a professional poker player since 1996, starting out as a Seven-Card Stud player. He has since branched out and been quietly racking up poker accomplishments. That includes final-tabling three different World Series of Poker events in 2003. One of those events was a ninth-place finish in the Main Event.

His WSOP accomplishments don't end there. Singer has cashed in several events since then, including making back-to-back final tables of the $50k H.O.R.S.E. event in 2006 and 2007. Then in 2008 he finally got his first bracelet win in the $1,500 Pot-Limit Hold'em event.

Singer also found success in the World Poker Tour circuit. In September 2005 he made the televised final table of a World Poker Tour event and then in January 2006 he did it again. He's cashed consistently in the events, but has yet to pick up a win.

His other major wins include the championship event of the Caesars Palace Classic and the $1,000 event of the Doyle Brunson Five Diamond World Poker Classic in 2007. He also found success online at Full Tilt Poker where he won the $25k Heads-Up World Championship.

It seems like an unlikely career for someone who started out on a path as an environmental lawyer for a nonprofit organization. Singer's worked helped advocate the clean-up of Long Island Sound.

Singer continues to be a nature lover. When he's not at the poker tables he's often hitting the hiking trails, fishing or bird watching.
