Tuan Lam Bio


Tuan Lam was born in Vietnam on New Year's Day in 1966 during the war. He eventually immigrated to Canada at the age of 19. He now lives in the Toronto area, where he plays poker professionally. Prior to turning pro, Lam worked as a general laborer for a metal company.

Then he learned how to play poker from friends and made it all the way to the final table of the 2007 World Series of Poker main event. Lam arrived at the final table ranked second in the chip count and fittingly finished runner-up for more than $4.8 million.

This was his third year to attend the WSOP. Prior to this, his cashes included a 46th-place finish in a 2006 event, and a 78th-place finish in a WSOP tournament held in 2005. He is married with two children.
