Career highlights[edit]

Johnson won the 343-entrant $2,500 Limit Hold'em Six Handed 2013 World Series of Poker Event 48 at a shorthanded final table that included Juha Helppi and Maria Ho, earning a prize of $206,796. Although that was his only bracelet up to that point, it was not Johnson's largest prize. He had finished second to Alexandre Gomes at the 2,317-entrant $2,000 No-Limit Hold'em 2008 World Series of Poker Event 48 for a prize of $491,273. In fact, prior to his first bracelet, he had finished as runner up three times in World Series of Poker events — $2,500 Limit Hold'em Six Handed 2012 World Series of Poker Event 40 and $1,500 Pot Limit Omaha Hi-Low Split-8 or Better 2013 World Series of Poker Event 31.[1] The 2013 bracelet was in the same $2,500 Limit Hold’em Six-Max event that he earned his 2012 runner-up finish in.[2]

On September 15, 2012, Johnson won the $320 buy-in PokerStars 2012 World Championship of Online Poker Limit H.O.R.S.E. Event No. 41 against a field of 598 for a prize of $33,727.20.[3] Johnson's biggest online win came on February 15, 2009 in the $150 + $13 buy-in Full Tilt Poker 200K Guarantee No-limit Hold'em with Rebuys when he defeated a field of 637 who had purchased 1142 rebuys and 547 addons for a prize of $85,481.[4] His biggest online prize came from a 3rd-place finish in the $10,000 + $300 buy-in September 20, 2009 PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker Limit H.O.R.S.E. Event No. 44 that earned him $133,900.[5]

Johnson's residence is in Mexico, where he plays high-stakes online poker.[2] Johnson was inspired to play poker by poker professional and legend Chip Reese, who was a neighbor of his growing up.[6]
