Negreanu Currently Has $12,427,047 In Lifetime Tournament EarningsPublished on 2009-11-11 16:05:00
Daniel Negreanu and Phil Ivey have both had great years in 2009, which has allowed both players to pass Jamie Gold on the all-time money list.
Negreanu was the first player to pass Gold on the all-time money list after finishing in second place at the 2009 World Series of Poker Europe main event. With that $800k+ cash, Negreanu moved approximately $250k ahead of Gold, ending the 2006 WSOP main event winner's three-year reign on top of the all-time money list.
Phil Ivey had a chance to make Negreanu's stay on top a brief one after making the final table of the World Series of Poker.
A fifth place finish or better for Ivey in poker's biggest tournament and he would have officially claimed the #1 spot from "Kid Poker". However, it wasn't meant to be, and Phil Ivey went on to finish in seventh place at the final table.
So, as of right now, here is how the top three look on poker's all-time tournament money list:
1. Daniel Negreanu, $12,427,047
2. Phil Ivey, $12,236,714
3. Jamie Gold, $12,198,041
Phil Hellmuth currently sits at #4 on the list with total earnings of just under $11 million dollars.
I'm going to assume that the next tournament that both Ivey and Negreanu play in will be the Doyle Brunson Five Diamond World Poker Classic in mid-December..
According to the Hendon Mob, here is how the top five in all-time tournament earnings looks when adjusting for inflation:
1. Daniel Negreanu, $13,811,542
2. Phil Hellmuth, $13,781,720
3. Phil Ivey, $13,282,808
4. T.J. Cloutier, $13,047,540
5. Jamie Gold, $12,946,015
