Byron Kaverman's first huge live poker success came six years ago in the Bahamas when he won the $5,000 event for $320,840. Since then, the 30-year-old from Ohio has added close to $8 million to his résumé. Kaverman had a tremendous 2015, winning nearly $3.5 million. That heater included a title-winning campaign in the WSOP $10k NLH 6-Handed Championship, on a star-studded final table featuring Doug Polk, Fedor Holz, Thomas Muehloecker and Sam Greenwood. Kaverman beat all the heavyweights to collect more than $650,000 along with his first bracelet. He also won the 2015 Global Player of the Year race. And the American pro didn't slow down in 2016, either, notching five additional six-figure cashes. Kaverman has established himself among the high roller elite, crushing the $25,000 events that run semi-regularly in Las Vegas. He also has a PokerStars High Roller title under his belt from EPT12 Malta.
