Ari has over 7 million dollars in live tournament winnings, was the number 1 ranked online player for tournaments in 2006, and is currently the 35th ranked tournament player in the world according to the global poker index.

Coming off of a scorching hot LAPC with 2 wins and 2 runner-ups, Ari is showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon.
