Cary Katz

Cary Katz is a professional poker and businessman. He was born in Atlanta GA. He now resides in Las Vegas Nevada. He learned the game of poker from his grandmother at an early age.

Cary is one of the lesser known poker players in the world, but his stats should prove otherwise. He is a businessman first and poker player second he claims. He makes his full time living founding new businesses and has had success every step of the way. He's probably worth way more than his poker earnings are.

His poker winnings exceed $4million by the way which is nothing to laugh at.

His biggest win came in one of the most notable performances in recent years. He entered the $1 million buy in at the 2014 WSOP Big One for One Drop and placed 8th. He would win $1.3 million for his finish. Although his million in earnings and final table appearance gained him some notoriety, it was a hand earlier in the game that made him known.

Cary held pocket Aces along with another player. Both got the money in pre flop and it would appear to be a split pot. But Cary held the Ace of hearts on a board the ended up with 4 hearts. This would knock out his opponent in a brutal bad beat and cost him $1 million.

Cary has 19 cashes at the WSOP as well as 3 final tables in his lifetime. His WSOP earnings are $1.7 million.

Most of his cashes come in the high roller events across the world. He has won 2 of them in 2014 alone. The first in February at the 2014 Bellagio Cup $25K high roller event. The again 27 days later when he won the $25K event once again.

He also has a 4th and a 2nd place finishing in 2 other high roller events at the Aria and the PCA for over $1 million in winnings.

Cary's life outside of poker is just as interesting. He is the founder and president of St. Gabriel Catholic Church. He also owns and operates a student loan foundation called College Loan Corporation. It is the 7th largest student loan company in the USA and has loaned over $19 billion since 1999. On top of this he is the chairman of Stop Child Predators.

His involvement with Stop the Predators has helped pass laws in 45 states to help protect bused children and force legal ramifications on their abusers.
