Bobby Baldwin is an American poker player. A member of the Poker Hall of Fame, inducted in 2003, Baldwin won the 1978 World Series of Poker Main Event and three other WSOP bracelets.

Nicknamed the Owl, Baldwin has his first two bracelets in 1977. The following year he defeated Crandell Addington heads-up to win the WSOP Main Event. He was 28 years old and was the youngest winner in the history of the WSOP Main Event. That record was eventually broken by Stu Ungar just two years later.

His fourth WSOP bracelet came in 1979 after winning the $10,000 2-7 Draw event, the same event he had won for his first bracelet two years earlier.

Baldwin's last major cash came in 2012, finishing seventh in the $1,000,000 Big One for One Drop for $1,408,000.

The famed high-stakes poker room at the Bellagio is named 'Bobby's Room' after Baldwin.
