- Bonomo remains at no. 1 in the All-Time Money List with over $60 million in total live cashes
- His latest wins came in the 2023 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure
- Bryn Kenney and Daniel Negreanu maintain their positions
The American poker pro’s total live earnings have now breached the $60 million mark after reaching the final table of the PCA $250K Super High Roller, making him the first poker player to achieve such a feat.
Bonomo’s Journey to the Top
Bonomo first topped poker’s All-Time Money List in July 2018 when he won the World Series of Poker (WSOP) Big One for One Drop for a career-best $10 million, overtaking long-time leader Daniel Negreanu. A year later, Bonomo slid to second place after Bryn Kenney won $20.5 million in the Triton London – A Helping Hand for Charity tournament.
Kenney held on to his position until 2021 when Bonomo reclaimed the top spot with his victory at the WPT Five Diamond $100K High Roller. Kenney regained the lead once again in February 2022 but it was short-lived as Bonomo was back at the top in the same year. The Virginia native never looked back after that.
Bonomo ended 2022 still leading the All-Time Money List with more than $58.9 million in total live cashes. That rose to over $60 million in 2023, thanks to his impressive performance at the PCA festival in the Bahamas.
The 37-year-old initially won $29,400 after finishing 44th in the $10,300 PCA Main Event, and just four days later, he took down the $25K No-Limit Hold’em 8-Handed Event for $574,530. He followed that up with a 6th-place finish in the $250K Super High Roller which earned him $664,900. That brought Bonomo’s total live earnings to an astonishing $60,222,952.
All-Time Money List Top 10
This year alone, Bonomo has so far cashed for $1,268,830, that entire amount he won in just a single poker tournament series, the PCA. Meanwhile, his closest rival Kenney has only recorded just over $60K in winnings since regaining the top spot in early 2022. He is currently second on the list as of February 2023 with $57,265,665 in total live winnings.
Negreanu stays at no.3 with $50,116,498, followed by Stephen Chidwick (4th, $44,665,132) and Erik Seidel (5th, $42,448,294). The rest of the Top 10 include Jason Koon (6th, $42,387,726), David Peters (7th, $42,044,584), Dan Smith (8th, $39,677,357), Mikita Badziakouski (9th, $38,302,021) and Phil Ivey (10th, $38,281,866).
