Who are the Richest Men in Pro Poker?
The debate over who the most successful men in pro poker are has raged on for decades, and unfortunately it can be very difficult to pinpoint exactly who they are due to a variety of contradicting information. At River Belle we focus on wins, not statistics, so below you will find a top 4 list of some of the top-earners to date, and you can use their professional tips to improve your game.
#1 – Daniel Negreanu: $32,470,000
This Canadian pro poker player has been in the game for over two decades and has found many major successes in that time. In 2014 he was named the best poker player of the decade by the Global Poker Index, and was also inducted into the Poker Hall of Fame in the same year. He has won 6 World Series of Poker (WSOP) bracelets and is also considered the most successful live poker tournament player of all time.
Daniel chalks his success down to paying attention to his opponents playing style, and keeping a mental record of their betting patterns. Depending on which game you’re playing you may not have direct opponents, but remember that almost everyone on the site is your opponent, as they could get the win instead of you!
#2 – Antonio Esfandiari: $26,200,000
Antonio is an Iranian-born pro poker player also known as The Magician, and he is in fact a retired magician! Having been raised in California, he found his first major win in 2004 when he won $184,860 at the World Series of Poker, but bettered that substantially when he won $18,346,673 in 2012 at the WSOP. He has won 3 WSOP bracelets in total, and has been at 10 final tables.
Antonio is magic on and off the field, and you too could find yourself being just as successful when playing online with our wide variety of games with stakes from high to low.
#3 – Erik Seidel: $25,390,000
Erik is an American pro poker player who first saw success well before the online poker boom by coming 2nd in the main event at the World Series of Poker in 1998. He has won 8 WSOP bracelets during his highly successful 2 decade pro poker career, and was inducted into the Poker Hall of Fame in 2010. This honour may have contributed to his most successful year to date, 2011, when he took home over $6.5 million in total.
Even though Erik made a name for himself long before the online casino game craze of today, you could see yourself winning big. We guarantee the best games, top-notch security and fantastic sign-up bonuses.
#4 – Phil Ivey: $22,800,000
No list of the most successful men in pro poker would be complete without mentioning Phil Ivey, also known as the ‘Tiger Woods of Poker’ owing to his likeness to the notorious pro-golfer. Unfortunately, he has also been the subject of some rather unfortunate lawsuits, but has won 10 World Series of Poker bracelets to date.
