Brian Altman has over $2.8 million in live tournament earnings including seven cashes at different incarnations of the PCA dating back to 2014. He racked up two of them this week as he warmed up for the Main Event. The American player’s biggest previous win came at the WPT Lucky Hearts Poker Open which he won for over $720,000 in 2015.
Now based in Canada, the poker pro is just as comfortable at the virtual felt, with over $1.3 million in online winnings, too. He has previously taken down the Sunday 500 for $90,000 and a WCOOP Second Chance on PokerStars as part of his online grinder career, but is looking at his biggest result to date in either poker format should he finish in first or second place in the PCA Main Event.
