Heinz won a Full Tilt Poker Sunday Mulligan in 2010 and a PokerStars $150K tournament in 2011.

Having developed his style online, he discovered that he “did not have a lot of experience playing live … The live game is pretty boring and you need a lot of patience.”[5] He cashed once during his first 15 WSOP events, finishing in 7th place in the $1,500 No Limit Hold ‘em event winning $83,286. That was his first ever live tournament cash.[citation needed] Because of the size of the field, the first day of the WSOP Main Event is split over a four-day period. Heinz registered for day 1-A so that he “could get out of there and go home as soon as possible” if he was eliminated.[5] During the final table, his mother, who was watching the event, had left Penn & Teller Theater because she found the tournament too stressful.
