Last summer, Justin Bonomo beat Negreanu in the list of the most profitable players in poker history. But a year later, another poker player, Bryn Kenny, took the lead.
In January, Bryn Kenny won about $1,000,000 in the tournament of Aussie Millions series, and that was the start of his victory lap in 2019. Kenny earned about $8,000,000 at the series of Triton Poker in Montenegro and South Korea and his total prize money in entire career reached $35,000,000.
At WSOP 2019, Kenny got into ITM only three times and his prize amounts were “ridiculous” for him: $16,000, $17,000 and $86,000. However, the poker player made up for lost time at Triton Poker series in London: the second place in Triton Million tournament allowed him to get the largest prize in poker history: $20,500,000. Now he is at the top of All Time Money List:
This month, the entire top 10 changed a lot. Apart from Bryn Kenny, who was in the ninth place and rose to the first line, another three poker players entered the top 10. Dan Smith became the fourth one, however he was at the eleventh place: Dan added $10,770,000 to his prize money.
British player Stephen Chidwick and American player Jason Koon take the 8th and 9th line. Before that they were in 19th and 16th place. Daniel Colman is tied at the last place of top 10, but earlier he was at the 6th place.
It can't be said that the amount in All Time Money List shows the entire earnings of poker players, because the buy-ins, sold shares and total expenses for the trip are not taken into account in this top. Nevertheless, it is considered to be an indicator of the most successful poker players.
Nowadays, the biggest prize money is raffled in the poker tournaments and this list can be changed literally every year. Now the player from the 2000th place can win several million dollars and get close to the top 30, as it was proved by the winner of Triton Million tournament Aaron Zang:
