Biography

Byron Kaverman is an American professional poker player hailing from Fort Jennings, Ohio. Kaverman began playing poker in 2004, learning the basics of the game by grinding home games at his friend's house. He has come on in leaps and bounds since those days, and is now regarded as an elite-level poker tournament player.

Kaverman burst onto the live poker scene in January 2011 when he won a $5,200 No-Limit Hold'em 8-max tournament at thePokerStars Caribbean Adventure (PCA). Kaverman banked $320,840 that day, a score that remained a career-best for more than four years.

After capturing several six-figure prizes, Kaverman finished second in the 2014 WPT World Championship for $727,860, missing out on the title to Keven Stammen. Kaverman set a new WPT record in 2014 regarding the number of cashes during a single season. He played in 14 of the available 21 events and cashed in seven.

The highlight of Kaverman's career came in June 2015 when he won the $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Six Handed Championship event at the World Series of Poker (WSOP), a result that saw Kaverman collect $657,351 plus a coveted gold WSOP bracelet.

Kaverman was now a high-stake specialist, one frequenting tournaments around the world that had buy-ins in excess of $25,000. He secured his first seven-figure payday with a fifth-place finish in the 2017 Super High Roller Bowl. He scooped $1,400,000 that day.

The following year, Kaverman finished fifth in the $1,000,000 buy-in The Big One for One Drop in Las Vegas for $2,000,000, which remains his largest haul to date.
