Darren Elias extended his advantage as the World Poker Tour’s all-time cash leader when he secured his record 45th in-the-money finish by placing 124th in the WPT Venetian main event held in July for a $8,850 payday. The score increased his lifetime earnings in WPT main tour events to more than $4.6 million.

Elias now has 11 more cashes in WPT main tour events than any other player. This is hardly the only category that Elias leads in, though, as he is also the main tour title and final-table appearance leader with four and 13, respectively.

The player with the second-most cashes in main tour events is Anthony Zinno. The three-time WPT champion and four-time World Series of Poker bracelet winner has accrued 34 in-the-money finishes on this tour, racking up more than $3 million in earnings along the way.

Poker Triple Crown winner Mohsin Charania rounds out the top three on this leaderboard with 32 cashes in main tour events. The bracelet winner, European Poker Tour Grand Final main event winner, and two-time WPT champion has 32 cashes under his belt, totaling more than $3.2 million in earnings.

While nobody is mathematically able to surpass Elias as the cashes leader by the end of 2022, this leaderboard could see plenty of big changes by the time the new year rolls around with the $15 million guaranteed WPT Championship at the Wynn in December. ♠
