Second, only to Bonomo, on the career money list, Negreanu is the biggest name in poker and one of the winningest players in poker history. In more than two decades on the felt, “Kid Poker” has amassed almost $40 million in live tournament winnings.

Good point about the selling pieces of action that is so common these days in tournament poker. It is true that many players on this list did not actually "win" as much as stated, their backers did.
The thing with using a tournament winning list is some of those players won a large field Call list top 50 tournament money leaders.
Yup good points. I do wish somebody would compile a list one day with tournament buyins subtracted. That is a very important point.
It is perhaps unlikely, but in theory some of those people on the list could actually have lost money playing tournaments.
Overall money list is cool, but we also have to consider the payout amounts. I'm not sure how to settle the debate fields are definitely tougher these days and you have to go through a LOT more players to win , but I don't think we can look only at money when considering the best players of all time.
Historically, and even today to a large extent, the great cash game players and the great tournament players however measured , are different breeds.
I get it that it's not possible to account for cash game players by counting winnings, but that simply means the list is a skewed and b incomplete, particularly as it has no room for the true greats of the game any list of "greatest" that can include Jamie Gold and not Doyle Brunson is absurd on its face.
So I take it all with more than a single grain of salt. This is Dynamik Widget Area. The 10 Best Poker Players of All Time Earnings-Wise.

You can't beat the mob. I wrote an ebook on the subject of playing low limit holdem. You can take a look at it by clicking here.
I think you are a little harsh on Negreanu. He actually made his name in poker pre-internet boom and ground out a living playing limit before his first big year in ' He plays junk starting hands to mix up his game and avoid becoming predictable.
If you only play conventional starting hands from a chart then sooner or later, good players will notice this and start to exploit you.
Negreanu is no different to many of the other top players in that they do play junk from time to time. But they do it sparingly, and tend to make a big deal out of it so that you remember.
Like you say, Negreanu is very likeable. My only real gripe with him is that he seems to focus much more on his non-playing business ventures these days see Full Contact and Poker VT etc.
In contrast, Phil Ivey doesn't even appear to maintain or update his own website. He just plays, obsessively. I'd like to come back on a point about Doyle.
A agree that we often see a lot of situations in the modern game where it seems players are willing to call with almost any two cards.
I'm always reminded of the hand where Gus Hansen calls Antonio Esfandiari's all-in with 10d-8d in the WPT a few years ago there might be better, more recent examples but I don't tend to watch poker on TV that often anymore.
I'm not really inclined to say that it 'was a dumb call' or a 'genius call' because a those guys play at a level way beyond mine, and b it happened on an edited TV show where we don't know the table history, texture or prior hands.
Different levels, different game. It is true that Doyle's play has changed. He can tighten up and do some real damage though.
I don't want to judge a man who has earned the kind of money he has consistanty won over the years. He seems, however, to have given in to the New Poker theory that you can play against the odds and come out ahead in the long run.
I saw him play A-5 off suit and fill in the three space gap a few years ago. Don't forget that is not a playable hand.
Sometimes plain luck does win the money. Great plays with hands like , and more hands like these have won the World Series Of Poker more than once.
I hate to say it but dumb luck has provided a lot of money for several so called great players. Calling heads up with every two cards seems to be the modern stratigy.
Hand choice seems to be, "I have two cards," call. Now it is who ever gets lucky. I think I am in a bad mood. I have said enough. Back to the great player on Zynga, Facebook.
I win almost 8 million a day. Ok I will be back at a casino in three weeks. I may see you at Spirit Mountian.
Thanks for letting me rant. I am avoiding raving. David hit post now. I have watched all of these players play. I also have played almost daily for 18 out of the last 28 years.
I have consistently made money every year that I have played. This is not to brag but to back my statements here. I have learned that you can not come out ahead if you play hands that are against the odds.
And you can not talk to get information against good players. The good players will start reading you like an open book. Daniel Negreanu does both.
I hate to say it but he reminds me of the rich kids who got amazingly lucky and won a big tournament and now he is believed to be a great player.
I know of at least players who would clean out his buy-in over and over again. They just don't have the huge sums of money it takes to play at what is considered pro level now days.
They all have earned substantial livings for many years, however. He is very like able but if he had to earn a living playing with limited money he would not make it.
I can't even rate him in the top I am no great player but I can usually know everything he is doing. He puts out his suited one way and big pocket pairs another way.
By the way, suited or not has negative expectations against more than one player. They will always cost more in the long run than they will ever win.
You can not beat the law of probabilities ever over time. I understan that the New Poker poker players beleive that they are so good that they can.
I love to take their money. Here is a link to a free hand strength chart. Interesting list facebookpokerguy. I'd only put Ivey in my top 5 all-time list but Negreanu wouldn't be far from my top Thanks for your comment David.
There were some tough players among those southern road gamblers - Puggy Pearson, Amarillo Slim, Sailor Roberts - and Doyle has outlived them all.
I agree with you. These may be the top five all time. However, Doyle has started making some high risk plays that he would have never made in the past.
I do believe that he has earned the right. He was one of the original holdem players that brought the game of holdem from Texas to Vegas.
This is more the reason that he is called the Godfather of poker. I also played against him several times. Before people say that he should not be called the Godfather of poker they should sit in a game with him.
I have been playing in casinos for almost 28 years. There are very few players that could sit down at the table with these players and not walk away a loser time after time.
I wrote a book based partly on watching Doyle play. Thanks for your comment Crisscross I agree with everything you said although the 'Jew' comment was pointless and borderline racist.
Still, you made some good points so I'll let the comment stand. Stu Ungar d best. Ahead of his time. Despite being, well an arrogant, stinky, disrespectful Jew, he was the best.
Hands down he was so aggressive and dead on with his reads that he can not be touched even today. The best ever!
Thanks for your compliment on the hub Manthy. I put a lot of time into thinking about this Top 5 list and just couldn't find a way to rank Doyle above any of the four other legends.
Brunson is 'Mr Poker' but I do think there have been better players Thanks for your comment Coding Staff. Poker goes back way too far for Doyle to be considered the father of the game.
But you could possibly argue that he is the father of the modern game. He is certainly the most famous player of the last 40 years. Stu Ungar was a great player, and Phil Ivey is impossible to read.
Don't know really who is the best, but my Favorite is poker player is Sammy Farha :. Some good points there, and you're probably right that back in the day, it probably all worked for Doyle, but in 50 years Dwan just won't cut it.
Like you said, can be applied to anything. Good idea on the hub stuff, I will follow you and keep an eye on what you write about, could maybe help each other out.
I think Doyle deserves to be in any top five list based on his achievements over the last fifty years. He's in his 70s now so there is little chance that he can consistently compete with the new generation.
When you get old, your brain starts to slow down and your body begins to fail. That's why masters of both physical and mental games lose their edge as the years roll by.
Throughout his career, Doyle has displayed a natural instinct for poker, far exceeding that of the average grinder pro, and his aggressive approach to the game is a style that has been mimicked by all of today's stars.
I don't really watch HSP anymore so I don't know the hand you are referring to but I understand your point.
Times change and usually the older players get left behind. Fifty years from now, an aging Tom Dwan will make an ultra-aggressive flop bluff in a high stakes TV game the kind of play that makes him millions of dollars today and find that he can no longer push opponents off TPTK or AA etc.
As I said, the game evolves and the older players get left behind. I see you've written a hub on online poker. If you want some more ideas, why not write a hub about the best players of the 21st century, the most underrated players in the world today or your favorite hands plus analysis from HSP.
I think there is scope for a ton of poker articles on Hubpages. But make sure you do your research before writing. Doyle might have kicked it all off, but he's nothing short of shocking now.
He bleeds money every time he plays cash, well at least when its televised. Too much of a gambler, he doesn't really play with logic, more with his set routines.
I check called flop with a backdoor, turned a combo draw, so I will check shove vs any bet. Well, that's not always correct, you have to take into account their possible double barrelling range on a drawy turn card like that when they know a check raise is likely, as well as fold equity.
Anyway, random example that was, but he just doesn't have an edge on anyone these days. All he's got on his side is that he's not scared of the money.
Remember his triple barrel vs Lex on last seasons HSP? Lex called him down with bottom pair no kicker, which was sick, but there's no way in hell Doyle was pot'ing a straight on the river so quickly.
Thanks for commenting Husky. I think if Ivey carries on like this, he'll be the undisputed all time number one within a decade.
