The Hendon Mob
History of The Hendon Mob

Back in the early nineties brothers Ross and Barny Boatman played in a home
game in Ross's home which was underneath Barny's home in Archway, North
London. When that game broke up they started frequenting Joe Beevers’
game in nearby Hendon, befriending Joe, and the game's other regular
player, Ram Vaswani.

The four would often drive together to games and tournaments around the
country. Perhaps it was the dark jackets and shades, or maybe a jokey
reference to actor Ross's on screen gangster roles, but everywhere they
went people would say 'here comes the Hendon Mob'. The name has stuck.
They are not a team, per se. They play as hard against each other as they do
against anyone in professional poker and are universally respected for their
integrity and fair play at the poker tables. What they are, though is a family.
Like four inseparable brothers, they are always there to enjoy each other's
successes and support each other when times are hard. 'That' says Barny 'is
our greatest strength.'

In the nineties the European tournament scene was growing and the
Hendon Mob traveled everywhere together, winning money and tournaments
in Paris, Helsinki, Vienna, Amsterdam, and anywhere else that poker was
played. In 1999 Late Night Poker, the first ever televised poker tournament
started its immensely popular run in Great Britain and The Hendon Mob were
invited to take part in this historic event. Already well known on the
European poker circuit, the show brought The Hendon Mob to a wider
audience and as poker grew in popularity, they also grew with it. Countless
appearances on TV shows and radio as well as innumerable features in
magazines and newspapers have made them household names all over
Europe and beyond.

In August 2001 was launched by The Mob in response to
the increasing interest both in them, and in the game of poker in general.
What started as a bit of fun with a few photos, tips and stories soon grew
into something much bigger. is now Europe's biggest

Amongst poker's greatest ambassadors, The Mob have helped to raise
awareness of poker as a sport. Starting with the first ever 'Poker Ashes' in
Melbourne Australia they have played team head's up challenges against
selected national teams from all over the world. They beat the Australians
and went on to defeat the French and Irish in successive matches. In 2004
they put their unbeaten record on the line against Team USA in poker's first
ever Transatlantic Challenge, the Ryder Cup of poker. The US fielded a
powerful team including Chris 'Jesus' Ferguson and Phil Ivy and in the event
The Mob were not disgraced in coming a close second!

In recent years The Hendon Mob have been making a big impression in the
USA, with notable successes in The World Series of Poker and elsewhere. The
American public have started to get to know them through appearances on
such shows as the Jimmy Kimmel show and Fox Sports live.
