Ted Kearly Bio

Kearly and his wife spend part of their winters in Las Vegas, and he started playing poker to help pass the time. In early 2007, he won a satellite in Michigan to play in the 2007 World Poker Tour World Championship, and he made the most of it, outlasting many of the best players in the world to reach the final four tables, earning $77,350.

When Kearly returned to Vegas for the winter of 2007, he decided to play in the seniors event of the Five-Diamond World Poker Classic, and he finished fifth, earning another $19,475. He parlayed that victory into a great run at the Doyle Brunson Classic main event. At the age of 75, the ?tournament rookie? finished as runner-up at the televised final table for almost $1.3 million.
