Noah Schwartz - $3,388,604, 3 1st place finishes, 44 cashes,

Jackie Glazier is one of the few other female players still sitting.  She comes to us from Australia.

Yevgeniy Timoshenko – May not be a name that stands out to many of us but the Ukraine-born, Washington State transplant has won $4,627,398 and has 34 cashes to date.  He has three 1st place finishes.  He won the Five Star World Poker Classic WPT / Season 7 - WPT No Limit Hold'em Championship and took home a massive $2,149,960 in April of 2009.
