Heimowitz started playing poker for baseball cards at the age of 9. He went on to join the U.S. Army; by the time he left the service at age 21, Heimowitz had won approximately $10,000 playing against his fellow servicemen.
Heimowitz used this money to invest in a beer company, which he later sold to Budweiser.
Heimowitz has attended the World Series of Poker (WSOP) since 1975 and has won six bracelets:
|1975||$5,000 No Limit Hold'em||$32,000|
|1986||$1,500 Limit Hold'em||$175,800|
|1991||$5,000 Pot Limit Omaha||$126,000|
|1994||$1,500 Pot Limit Hold'em||$148,200|
|2000||$5,000 Limit Hold'em||$284,000|
|2001||$1,000 The Seniors' Championship||$115,430|
Heimowitz won a Poker After Dark title on his sole appearance, earning $120,000. The show was themed around former Mayfair Club regulars with a table composed of Heimowitz, Mickey Appleman, Dan Harrington, Mike Shichtman, Howard Lederer, and Steve Zolotow.
As of 2009, he has made over $2,000,000 in live tournament winnings. His 36 cashes at the WSOP account for $1,503,615 of those winnings.
Outside of poker, Heimowitz enjoys keeping himself fit. He lives with his wife Carole (they married in 1960.) They have four sons (Eddie, Lonnie, Roy, and Neil) and grandchildren (Katelyn, Jaclyn, Angelo, Max, Sofia, Jake, Anatoly, Casey, and Neil Patrick).
