Perry Friedman - "The Baiter"


Perry Friedman AKA "The Baiter" is aside from a poker professional, a world Roshambo champion, a chip castle building winner, and founding member of Tiltboys.

This Standford University graduate has a Bachelor of Science in Mathematical and Computational Science and a Masters in Computer Science. He has been a professional poker player since 2000 and says that his favorite poker game is Seven-Card Stud.

The year of the 31st World Series of Poker in 2000 marked the beginning of what looks like a very promising career when Perry Friedman came in at third in the $2,500 Seven-Card Stud locking down $37,750. His most notable accomplishment in poker was when he won his first bracelet at the 33rd World Series of Poker $1,500 Omaha Hi/Lo Split 2002 in Las Vegas leaving with $176,860. At that same WSOP, Friedman made it to the final table at the $2,000 S.H.O.E event scoring another $16,140 at fourth place.

He came in fourth at the 2003 $500 Limit Hold'em Shooting Star event in San Jose. In 2004 at the $5,000 No Limit Hold'em Championship Final Day of the World Poker Tour - Legends of Poker in Los Angeles he came in at ninth place, winning $49,575.

Perry Friedman is a jester at the tables. He is known for his non-stop chattering and bets on every hand no matter what. Some say that you have to watch out for the Fried Factor when playing with him. This means that if you think you have a sure hand over Friedman then you better think again because this guy lucks out. He is quoted at the Tiltboy website "Why don’t I look at my cards? I’m playing Schroedinger’s hand. Notice that at the point I make my bets, there is a superposition of winning and losing hands. Clearly these “quantum odds” are far superior to my actual odds by playing normally."

Nowadays, he works for a software company called Tiltware, which makes software for online poker sites. His current live tournament winnings amount to around $570,000.
