Jay B. Heimowitz (born December 26, 1937) is an Americanmarker poker player from Bethelmarker, New Yorkmarker. Heimowitz was one of the original players to help establish the Mayfair Club as a premier poker house.

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 6 bracelets:

Year Tournament Prize (US$)

Heimowitz won a Poker After Dark title on his sole appearance, earning $120,000. The show was themed around former Mayfair regulars with a table comprised of Heimowitz, Mickey Appleman, Dan Harrington, Mike Shichtman, Howard Lederer, Dan Harrington and Steve Zolotow.

As of 2009, he has made over $2,000,000 in live tournament winnings. His 36 cashes as 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 (Ed, Lonnie, Roy and Neil) and eight (Katelyn, Jaclyn, Angelo, Max, Sofia, Jake, Anatoly and a newborn) grandchildren.
