Born in Chapel Hill, North Carolina and currently living in Las Vegas, Nevada, Newhouse is the first player in World Series of Poker history to make it into two consecutive main event finals, earning his first “November Nine” slot last year and taking home $733,224.

With total earnings over $2.7 million in professional tournaments and the historic repeat badge pinned to his breast, Newhouse will be a fierce competitor to watch during this year’s final event!
