Who has won the most money among European players?

European Poker All-Time Money List

Americans take the first line on the players' quantity in professional poker, hence there are normally lots of them in the All-Time Money List (list of the most profitable tournament players in the world in live poker).

For instance, the top 10 of this list includes 7 Americans + Daniel Negreanu, who performs under the Canadian flag, but also has American citizenship and has been living in Las Vegas for many years.

Since recently, Bryn Kenney has topped the list. His total winnings in live tournaments exceed the mark of $55.5 million. The guy ousted American player Justin Bonomo from the first place, who has recorded $45.3 million in prize money. Last year, Justin overtook Canadian-American pro Daniel Negreanu, who was the unchangeable leader in this rating for many years.

The first non-American player in the All-Time Money List takes only 7th position, and this is Fedor Holz, who has won $32.6 million in prize money throughout career.
