A lot has changed in the 16 weeks since we last looked at Card Player’s all-time tournament earnings leaderboard. Two players have joined the top 10, and two others have made notable moves up the rankings. All four of the players in question are among the top seven in earnings so far in 2022, with each of them cashing for at least $4 million.

Stephen Chidwick has cashed 14 times since our last look at the list in March of this year, adding nearly $4.9 million to his lifetime total along the way. The 33-year-old’s two largest scores in recent months came within a week of each other at the Triton Poker Madrid series. First, he finished second in a €75,000 buy-in no-limit event for more than $1.3 million, then days later took down a €100,000 buy-in for nearly $1.9 million. With more than $43 million in total earnings, the UK tournament superstar has moved up two spots to fifth place.

Jason Koon also climbed in the standings because of huge success in Madrid. The 36-year-old American cashed 10 times since the spring, accruing more than $4.1 million along the way to grow his career total to nearly $39.4 million. His biggest score saw him secure $1.5 million as the winner of a €150,000 buy-in short deck event at the aforementioned Triton stop.

Belarus’ Mikita Badziakouski surged up the rankings and into ninth place. The 30-year-old is the youngest player inside the top 10. He has added more than $4.3 million since the last update, all earned from eight scores in high-stakes events. With $37.8 million, he now sits in ninth place on this prestigious list.

Rounding out the list is 10-time bracelet winner Phil Ivey. The 45-year-old Poker Hall of Famer is the third-highest earning player so far in 2022, with nearly $5.1 million in scores to date. Ivey has made four final tables at the WSOP this summer, including a runner-up showing in the $100,000 buy-in event for nearly $1.2 million. As a result of his recent run, he has increased his lifetime earn to more than $37.1 million.

Other players on this list who have made some noise include David Peters, who sits in fourth place thanks to the $2.3 million he has cashed for this year. Erik Seidel has added more than $1.3 million to his totals thus far in 2022, while Daniel Negreanu has banked almost $1 million and Dan Smith has racked up over $700,000. ♠
