Grant Levy may not be known well by the poker community at large but down under (that’s in Australia) he’s a pretty big deal. Levy won the APPT Sydney Main Event in 2007 for A$1,000,000 (around $875,000) and followed that up with the ANZPT Perth title in 2011 for A$131,500 (around $130,000).
This is Levy’s second cash of the festival series. He finished fifth in another $5k event for $56,710 which helped him to a career live tournament total winnings of $1,727,892. You can add $78,940 and another first place to that.
