Seat 5: Ami Barer, 22 – Vancouver, Canada – 6,570,000

Ami Barer

Ami Barer may be from Canada but he clearly has strong ties to Australia considering he cites Aussie Daniel Neilson as both the biggest influence on his poker game and meeting him as the highlight of his poker career.

The 22-year old has been playing poker for a “couple of years”, which was long enough to post almost $6 million in online tournament results under the screen name “UhhMee”. The largest live tournament result on Barer’s resume is $180,064 for finishing 2nd in the EPT Prague Eureka Main Event in 2013. Anything better than 7th at the Aussie Millions final table will top that.
