Ben Yu has quietly carved a niche as one of the top performers each summer during the World Series of Poker, and can dominate the high-stakes cash games as well.
The 2008 Stanford University graduate has over $7 million in lifetime live tournament earnings. Prior to 2015, Ben had just $525,000 in earnings. In 2015, he won his first of three bracelets in $10,000 Limit Hold’em Championship, good for $291,456. Two years later he earned another bracelet in the $10,000 Limit 2-7 Lowball Triple Draw Championship for $232,738. Last year, he won his third bracelet, this one in the $50,000 No-Limit Hold’em High Roller (Big Blind Antes) for a career-best $1,650,773.
