The son of a poet and psychiatrist, Haxton showed a high level of intelligence from an early age, playing chess at the age of four and competing in Magic: The Gathering at the age of ten. He burst onto the poker scene in 2007 with a second place finish at the PCA Main Event when he was still a student studying Computer Science at Brown University. He is adept at cash games and tournaments, both live and online, and as of January 2013 has amassed winnings of over $4m.
