Poker Leaderboard: WPT Main Event Cashes

by Card Player News Team |  Published: Mar 10, 2021


Darren Elias currently holds a number of records for the World Poker Tour, including the most main tour titles won (4), the most final tables made (12) and the most cashes accrued (41). Elias recently added to that third category by finishing 10th from a field of 1,573 total entries in the 2021 WPT Lucky Hearts Poker Open $3,500 buy-in no-limit hold’em main event. The $79,455 he earned for his latest deep run brought his lifetime total earnings on the tour to $3,922,900, which is good for ninth on the WPT main tour’s all-time money list.

This latest score also gave him a 10-cash lead over a pair of players who are currently tied for second on this leaderboard. One of those two players is three-time WPT champion and two-time World Series of Poker bracelet winner Anthony Zinno, who has 31 in-the-money finishes in main tour WPT events. The 2015 Card Player Player of the Year award winner recorded his first cash on the WPT in the 2013 Borgata Winter Poker Open main event, finishing 11th for $39,821. In the years that have followed he has gone on to cash for a total of $3,077,197 on the tour.

Joining Zinno with 31 main tour cashes is Mohsin Charania, who has earned poker’s triple crown with a WSOP bracelet, two titles on the WPT, and a main event win on the European Poker Tour. Charania has accumulated $2,903,664 in cashes on this tour, with nearly half of that ($1,477,890) coming from a win in the season-ending championship event held at Bellagio in 2014. Charania tied Zinno by scoring a pair of cashes in WPT Online main tour events in the late summer of 2020.

Card Player columnist and two-time WPT main event winner Jonathan Little sits just three main tour cashes behind Charania and Zinno, with $4,005,439 in earnings across 28 in-the-money finishes. While the majority of the players inside the top ten on this leaderboard have secured WPT main tour titles, Curt Kohlberg, David Pham, and Joe Serock have yet to come out on top despite consistently putting themselves in contention. Serock, however, did win WPT Player of the Year honors in 2012.
