Booth has two money finishes on the World Series of Poker, made it to the final table of the 2006 World Poker Tour, and placed fifth in the 2007 National Heads-Up Championship in 2007.
At one time, Booth was reportedly considered one of the most successful high-limit cash players in the game, known for his appearances on the Game Show Network’s “High Stakes Poker” program and NBC’s “Poker After Dark.”
Booth had reportedly been suffering from debt troubles recently. He stated in 2011 he had lost $4.2 million (U.S) since 2008.
He had spoken openly about going broke and having to rebuild his in 2017 in a PokerListings Youtube video.
