Ivey, Negreanu Move Up on All-Time Money List
Results from the Aussie Millions caused some shake-up on the THM All-Time Money List…
Ivey Moves to #2
2012 WSOP Big One for One Drop winner Antonio Esfandiari (GPI#66) remains #1 on the THM All-Time Money list following the completion of the Aussie Millions Poker Championship in Melbourne. However, The Magician’s lead isn’t as big as it used to be as a pair of legendary poker pros made a big push in Australia.
Phil Ivey (GPI#127) is one of those big names. Ivey would squash rumours that he was broke when he picked up the $4,000,000 AUD top prize in the 250K Challenge, picking up his first live tournament cash since WSOP Europe in October.
Kid Poker to Third
If it wasn’t for Ivey’s win, we would be talking about Negreanu’s move to #2, instead, Kid Poker will have to settle for a move up to #3 on the list, trailing Ivey by only $1,147 USD – that’s right, a little more than a buy-in into a 1K WSOP event is all that separates two of the game’s best.
Negreanu would cash in both the 100K and 250K Challenges, allowing him to move up the ranks. Kid Poker isn’t expected to play on the live tournament circuit until March where he is scheduled to take part in the WPT L.A. Poker Classic – giving the opportunity for Erik SeidelSam Trickett, who now sit behind Negreanu on the list – to possibly make up some ground in February.
Congratulations go out to Jason Mercier and Mike McDonald, who both crossed the 10M USD career-mark in earnings on the live tournament circuit with their performances at the Aussie Millions.
