To tell you the truth, nothing changed dramatically in terms of rules and techniques of playing poker, but what really altered is a list of the most famous poker players around the world.
It might be interesting for you to know the techniques they use and the way they reached the level of their greatness over the years. But, unfortunately, most of them prefer to keep the secret of their success to themselves. There is no wonder, as every one of them wants to stay at the top as long as possible.
The first place this year is owned by a fabulous Magician – Antonio Esfandiari. The guy managed to win a $226,785 money prize at the last tournament, which is not that impressive, but his total earnings constitute more than $21 million, and this fact earned him an opportunity to take the first place on this list and made him a name in the online gambling industry.
The second on the list, but not in our hearts, is Daniel Colman with a catchy nickname mrGR33N13. His poker face helped him make an overall fortune of more than $17 million, 15 of which he won during his most recent tournament!
Daniel Negreanu made his name quite a long time ago, and now he is a proud owner of total earnings of an estimated $16,378,571 in 2019. This bad boy was listed as number one for a couple of years, but this year he lost his positions to more talented and fortunate players.
Jonathan Duhamel would be really upset knowing that he has to be only on the fourth place among skilled professionals because he is known as a well-experienced player, though his total earnings in 2019 made only $14,489,866.
Phil Hellmuth is on the fifth place in this rating under the pseudonym The Poker Brat. His total winnings constitute $13,606,825.
There is no doubt that those guys are all champs when it comes to a fabulous poker technique, but to be an overall winner you have to possess certain personal qualities and talent. The list of the best poker players includes many more successful people, who, by the way, are all male, and every year it changes, but as poker technique takes time to master, there are rarely any surprises when talking about players who win the most. You can overview other lists and make sure that there you will see the names of the same famous poker players.
Anyway, these guys don’t hurry to present all secrets of their success to the public yet. But don’t be alarmed, you can always find videos on the Internet, where you can clearly see the way they are making big money.
