Bill Edler Bio


Born in Evanston, Illinois, William "Bill" Edler has been in the tournament poker scene for some time now. Known and respected in the poker community, Edler quickly made a rush of final table appearances and large cashes. By mid-March of 2007, Edler had already racked up four final tables, nearly $700,000 in winnings, and first place in the first-annual Heads-Up Championship.

Then, at the 38th World Series of Poker, he won his first bracelet in the $5,000 buy-in shorthanded no-limit hold’em tournament. A short time after winning his first WSOP bracelet, he snagged his first World Poker Tour title and made what some consider the best comeback in poker history. Edler was all-in blind with only two chips left in the 2007 Gulf Coast Championship, but after winning a few consecutive all-ins, he built his stack back up. He then went on to win the event. Edler has firmly placed himself among poker's elite tournament players.
