What the world's top 10 poker players look like in terms of career prize money in tournament poker

Justin Bonomo sets new poker record

Justin Bonomo, one of the best players in the world, is back in the poker media headlines. After a trip to the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure and a $250,000 tournament where the American came in sixth place, his total prize money at the offline tables exceeded $60,000,000.

He was the only player ever to win that much money – $60,222,952 – in an offline tournament.

Bonomo has been competing for first place for several years now with Bryn Kenney, who has soared to the podium thanks to a deal in the most expensive tournament in poker history. Nearly $20 million in prize money put him in the lead. Justin’s biggest payout of his career was $10 million.

They took turns topping the list at first, but Breen moved away from the offline game and gave Bonomo a chance to pull away again. Today, Kenny is in second place with $57,265,665.

Third place is traditionally held by Daniel Negreanu with $50,115,498 in prize money. For a long time, KidPoker could not overcome the barrier of $50 million, but was able to cope with the downstrain and win the Super High Roller Bowl.

Today, the top 10 poker players in the world are as follows:

No. 1: Justin Bonomo – $60,222,954.

2nd place: Bryn Kenny – $57,265,665.

3rd place: Daniel Negreanu – $50,116,498.

Fourth place: Stephen Chidwick – $44,665,132.

5th place: Eric Seidel – $42,448,294.

6th place: Jason Kuhn – $42,387,726.

7th place: David Peters – $42,044,584.

8th place: Dan Smith – $39,677,357.

9th place: Nikita Bodiakowski – $38,302,021.

10th place: Phil Ivey – $38,281,866.

While previously the movement in the rankings was a few times a year, today the list is very dynamic thanks to dozens of expensive series. There are $250,000 tournaments at various EPT stops, and just a couple of successful performances at Triton Poker are likely to move a player up a few spots.
