Seat 4: Grant Levy, 33, Australia - 786,000
Grant Levy, a father and a teacher, enters the final table short on chips
but has plenty of experience. In 2007, Levy shipped the inaugural Asia
Pacific Poker Tour Grand Final Main Event, becoming the first Aussie
to earn A$1,000,000 ($875,542) on home soil. In 2011, he also won an
Australia New Zealand Poker Tour Main Event after beating 219 players
in Perth to bank $130,175.
Levy’s third-largest career cash come in 2007, when he finished third in the PokerNews Cup at Crown Casino, earning $117,284. In January, at the tenth anniversary PokerStars Caribbean Adventure, Levy made two final tables. He finished fifth in a $5,000 side event, earning $56,710, and won a separated $5,000 side event, pocketing $78,940. His lifetime live tournament winnings weigh in at $1.8 million, and with a win, he would rank third on the Australia all-time money list.
