10 Most Successful Poker Players

1. Phil Hellmuth - Phil Hellmuth is the current all-time record holder for World Series of Poker bracelets with an amazing 13 titles. He is also the only man in WSOP history to have won both the WSOP Main Event in Las Vegas and the WSOP Europe Main Event. 2. Doyle Brunson - Known as both "Texas Dolly" and the "Godfather of Poker", Brunson is one of the last original road gamblers from the 1960's and 1970's and is a ten-time WSOP bracelet winner, including winning the Main Event in both 1976 and 1977. 3. Phil Ivey - Ivey is easily the best poker player of not just our generation but perhaps of all-time. He was atop the all-time money list until Antonio Esfandiari won the Big One for One Drop at the 2012 World Series of Poker. Ivey has 8 WSOP bracelets, a WPT title, numerous other wins in the game and over $17 Million in career earnings. 4. Daniel Negreanu - Negreanu is sixth on the all-time poker money list and has won over $1 Million four out of the last five years. He has four WSOP titles as well as two World Poker Tour titles and over $16 Million in career earnings. 5. Stu Ungar - Stu Ungar is one of two men to hold three World Series of Poker championships and is the only man ever to win three WSOP Main Event tournaments. (Johnny Moss has 3 WSOP titles, but his first was by popular vote.) Stu was considered the greatest of all-time and had his life not been cut short by drugs, he may have proven it. 6. Jennifer Harman - Jennifer is more known for her high stakes cash play nowadays, but she was one of the most successful female tournament players after the start of the poker boom in 2003. Harman has two WSOP bracelets to her credit as well as numerous final tables. She is still mildly successful in tournaments but only plays them part time due to raising twin boys. Instead, she plays the highest limit cash games in Vegas, and is a regular winner. 7. Kathy Liebert - Liebert is the all-time money winner among women in poker tournament history. Her titles include the PartyPoker Million and one WPT title. She has won over $5 Million in tournament play. 8. Antonio Esfandiari - While Esfandiari may not have the same pedigree as a Hellmuth or a Brunson, he is still the winningest player in poker tournaments. He won the largest prize in the game's history this past summer by winning $18.7 Million for taking down the Big One with One Drop charity event. He has $23.4 Million in winnings for his career. 9. TJ Cloutier - Cloutier has won more major poker tournaments than anyone in the history of poker. He has 60 major event wins through 2009 and over $9 Million in tournament earnings. Cloutier also has six WSOP bracelets. 10. Scotty Nguyen - Scotty has won just about every significant major poker title imaginable. He is also the only man in poker history to win both the WSOP Main Event and the $50,000 HORSE Event, now the $50,000 Poker Player's Championship.
