Brian "Sailor" Roberts was an American professional poker player.

Before becoming a poker professional Roberts was a rounder and traveled the country looking for games along with other legends such as Doyle Brunson and Amarillo Slim. In addition to being a world class poker player, he was also a champion contract bridge player.

Roberts won the 1975 World Series of Poker (WSOP) main event, gaining his second WSOP bracelet and $210,000. His first bracelet had been at the 1974 World Series of Poker in the $5,000 Deuce to Seven Draw event.

Roberts earned his nickname of "Sailor" for having served in the United States Navy during the Korean War.

Roberts died from sclerosis caused by hepatitis.

His overall live tournament winnings add up to $276,650.
