The 54th Annual World Series of Poker (WSOP) recently concluded with the highly anticipated Triton Series in London, following up with the biggest poker show on the planet. A lot of players walked away with huge winnings, while some failed to impress in any way. With the All Time Money List completely shaken up, let’s have a look at the biggest gainers in the all-time money list as of August 2023.
To no one’s surprise, Bryn Kenney has managed to get back on the top of the table of the All Time Money List. He had lost the spot to Justin Bonomo, who is often seen tussling with Kenney to be on the numero uno position. Bomono was at the top and had even cemented a good lead in early 2023, especially after his $574,529 win at $25,000 8-Handed at the 2023 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure.
However, Kenney won Event #9 on the Triton Poker Series schedule in London to win a juicy top prize of over $6.8 Million against some of the best players to get back on the top spot. The Long-Island based player added over $7,771,227 to push his all time winnings to $ 65,036,892. He will be eager to continue on his streak and gain a solid lead over Bomono for 2023.
Isaac Haxton made a jump as he moved four places up from the 15th to the 11th slot in the latest Hendon Mob All Time Money List. He recently won the largest $25,000 buy-in event at the WSOP 2023 to pocket $1,698,215 in prize money, which helped his cause of moving up the rankings. At the time of this writing, he has nearly recorded $39,876,214 in total live earnings.
Talal Shakerchi gained one of the biggest possible jumps on the recent All Time Money List, having jumped a staggering 85 places. Yes, you read it right; he moved up from his previously held 132nd position and managed to break into the top 50. In the latest rankings, the Englishman finds himself slotted 47th, with his all time live earnings sitting at $ 18,174,570 during the time of this writing.
If you thought, Shakerchi’s jump up the rankings, wait till you learn about Christopher Brewer. The US-based poker pro added more than $17 Million to his bankroll in the latest evaluation on Hendon Mob and gained a massive jump.
He moved from the 212th position to the 52nd slot after winning the highest buy-in event of the 2023 World Series of Poker (WSOP), namely $250K Super High Roller to walk away with $5,293,556. Yes, you read it right, the poker star moved more than 240 spots higher, citing his performances in the recent past. Following such a strong outing, Brewer will be eager to end 2023 on a high!
The biggest jump we have seen in recent poker history belongs to none other than Daniel Weinman. As most of you would have probably guessed, one of the biggest reasons which sees Weinman make the list is his latest outing at the WSOP 2023.
Unless you live under a rock, Daniel Weinman won the WSOP 2023 Main Event to pocket $12.1 Million. This saw him make a gigantic 402-place leep on the Hendon Mob All time Money List, moving from 464th place to the 62nd. With the WSOP ME win, Weinman achieved something that most poker players can only dream of.
