The World Poker Tour (WPT) is one of the most prominent poker brands globally. They organise some of the most significant poker events throughout the year. One of the best things about WPT is how they hold poker series across various continents and in different countries, making the game truly global while giving players the chance to win big.
With the WPT Fall Festival, WPT Australia 2023, WPT Vietnam Passport to WPT World Championship and the highly anticipated WPT– World Championship scheduled to take place soon, let’s look at the WPT All Time Money List.
Carlos Mortensen aka ‘The Matador,’ is amongst one of the most popular Spanish poker players around the globe. He has pocketed over $12,107,757 in total live earnings while recording a best live cash of $3,970,415. Sitting at the 99th spot in the All Time Money List, the Spaniard occupies the 3rd spot when it comes to Spain’s All Time Money List.
It is worth noting that $6,738,672 out of his total winnings have been cashed at the World Poker Tour. His best performance at the series came during the WPT $ 25,000 + 500 WPT – No Limit Hold’em Championship in 2007 when he pocketed $ 3,970,415 for a first place finish.
One of the most recognisable poker players in the world, Daniel Negreanu, finds himself slotted second on the WPT All Time Money List. The Canadian poker pro has registered $51,277,624 in total live earnings while recording a best live cash of $8,288,001.
Currently slotted 4th on the All Time Money List, the Las Vegas-based poker pro has earned $5,972,873 from WPT events. One of his best performances in the WPT series came during the WPT $15,000 + 300 World Poker Tour Championship – No Limit Hold’em in 2004, where he pocketed $1,770,218 for shipping the title! It remains interesting to see if he can top this WPT All Time Money List by the end of 2023!
Michael Mizrachi sits at the 53rd position on the All Time Money List, having pocketed $17,495,778 in total live earnings. ‘The Grinder’ also has a best live cash of $2,332,992 and is one of the best players at WPT events. His performances at various World Poker Tour tournaments see him pocket $5,135,734 so far. With WPT Cambodia, WPT Australia and the highly awaited WPT– World Championship all on the way, Mizrachi will be eager to close down the gap between him and Negreanu.
The United States-based poker pro has been a star performer at WPT events in the recent past. He has earned $4,731,452 in this tournament series while recording a total live earnings of $12,152,288. He fared well in May 2018, claiming first place in WPT $9,600 + 400 No Limit Hold’em – WPT Bobby Baldwin Classic and earning $387,580 before registering a third place finish for $177,060 in WPT $15,000 No Limit Hold’em – WPT Tournament of Champions.
One of his best performances in WPT came in March 2019, where he claimed the third spot in WPT $10,000 No Limit Hold’em – WPT Championship Main Event (Event #62) to win $473,280. It was only bettered by his outing in WPT $3,200 + 300 No Limit Hold’em – WPT Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown Championship (Event 36) in 2022, where a second-rank finish earned him $660,000.
Tuan Bui Le has earned $4,533,943 so far in World Poker Tour events, pushing him into the top five best-performing players. With total live earnings of $5,741,044 and a best live cash of $2,856,150, it is worth noting that most of this pro’s earnings have been in WPT events. As the WPT earnings of Le and Elias are within touching distance of each other, it remains interesting to see if Le can topple his fellow countryman and move up the ladder in the WPT All Time Money List.
