Chris Brewer is a former collegiate runner turned high stakes poker player from Oregon with $5.4 million in career tournament earnings, putting him second on the state's all-time money list.
After getting his first tournament cash in 2015, Brewer broke out onto the high stakes scene and is a regular in Triton events and in the PokerGO studio.
In September 2021, Brewer took down the Poker Masters $25,000 No-Limit Hold'em event for $427,500, his biggest career score to date, just one month after getting his second-best score of $420,670 after winning the $50,000 Super High Roller at the World Poker Tour (WPT) Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open.
Brewer's heater continued into 2022 and he finished first in the Triton Poker Series Madrid €20,000 No-Limit Short Deck event for $387,209.
Despite racking up $485,202 in WSOP earnings across 27 cashes, Brewer has yet to take home a coveted WSOP bracelet or ring. His closest call was in the 2021 WSOP.com Circuit online series, where he finished third in a $500 Pot-Limit Omaha event for $14,736.
At the 2021 WSOP, Brewer finished fifth in the $50,000 Poker Players Championship for $211,235, giving him his biggest World Series score to date.
