Newey is one of the high rollers without a true poker pedigree in the sense that he did not build a roll in smaller buy-in events. The well-bankrolled Brit hopped into deep water pretty much right away and has cut his teeth against some of the world's best tournament players over the past few years.
Observe nearly any high buy-in event around the globe recently, and one was likely to lay eyes on Newey. He has been a regular face at final tables, including making the second $1 million Big One for One Drop final table in 2014. He's totaled over $4 million in cashes but is still seeking that first big win.
