Poker Professional
Ross Boatman


Ross Boatman also known as "Rocky" from the Hendon Mob became a professional poker in 1992 and has been very successful ever since. Boatman developed his love for the game at a very young age while his brother Barny Boatman was supposed to be babysitting him. "Sure I didn't have a clue what I was doing. Barney and his friends let me sit in. I just remember raking in these big piles of shiny coins. And that was it . . . [I was] hooked for a lifetime."

At age 17 Boatman was found embarking on many cash games at the Victoria for a few years until the need for tournament play set in. He then started to travel all over the U.K. in search to satisfy that craving that was within. He proved himself time and time again in countries ranging England, France, and Spain, to Slovenia, Ireland, Australia, and the U.S.

This poker specialist was the champion at the Austrian Open, British Poker, and the Irish Open Omaha. He also took first at Pot Limit Omaha Hi/Lo British Open 2004, No Limit Holdem - European Poker Classics 2002, Pot Limit Omaha - Austrian Masters 2002, Pot Limit Holdem - Christmas Cracker Tournament 2001, Semi Final - Late Night Poker Series 2, and the Paris No Limit Hold'em - Autumn Tournament 1999. He has also made it to the final table at the WSOP 2002 at the Omaha event, finishing seventh where the Boatman brothers were the first to make the same WSOP final table in the same event.

Among being a conquering poker player, Ross Boatman is also a prosperous actor in the hit series London's Burning, and made a few appearances on The Storyteller, Murder in Mind, A Touch of Frost, Dream Team, and The Bill. He also has bloomed in the film industry in movies such as Hard Men, Bring Me the Head of Mavis Davis, and I'll Sleep When I'm Dead. A play he did about poker, Dealer's Choice by Patrick Marber, won a West End award.
