Coming in as the second largest stack with 65 big blinds – just ahead of Jeff Rossiter – Brit Ben Heath is a regular on the world poker circuit alongside fellow high roller and poker confidante, Charlie Carrel.
With seven WSOP cashes on his poker resume – including a final table in the 2015 $3,000 No Limit Hold’em Six Handed event where he finished sixth for $77,591 – and numerous cashes in tournaments the world over that include EPT, LAPT, UKIPT and WPT results, Heath is one of the more experienced players at the final table.
Last year was the best of Heath’s poker playing career so far with the Brighton-based pro earning a very respectable $553,382. And he has already got his 2017 off to a great start as he came to Australia straight from the Bahamas where he chalked up his largest live cash, taking down the $15,300 No Limit Hold’em 8-Max event for a $141,440 score. He did so seeing off challenges from poker wizard Justin Bonomo and high-stakes specialist Steve O’Dwyer.
Heath is already guaranteed to beat this with his Aussie Millions final table appearance to add to his US$1 million in live tournament winnings.
