The Venetian Resort has awarded the third-most tournament prize money of any casino in the world, with more than $530 million paid out to date. Overall there have been five players who have managed to cash for seven figures in events at Las Vegas property.

The player with the most money won at the venue is two-time WSOP bracelet winner Eric Baldwin. Of his $7.5 million in career cashes, $1.48 million have been made at Venetian. His largest score at the venue came when he finished third in an MSPT main event for $209,194. He has 114 recorded cashes there, the fourth-highest tally of any player. The former collegiate baseball champion has 12 outright wins and another half dozen runner-up finishes at the venue.

Qing Liu is hot on Baldwin’s heels with $1.47 million of his career $2.48 million in winnings coming at Venetian. His largest cash came when he took down the $5,000 buy-in WPT Venetian main event in 2021 for $752,880. Two of his four six-figure scores came at Venetian, with the second being a $110,890 payday for a win in a $600 buy-in event during the DeepStack Extravaganza I last February.

Rounding out the top three is another WPT Venetian main event winner in Ben Palmer. The Florida native earned $431,655 as the winner of the 2019 event, which then sported a $3,500 buy-in. While he’s third on this list, Palmer is also the all-time leader when it comes to poker tournament cashes made at Venetian with 145. He most recently made the final table of the CPPT Venetian main event, adding $18,434 to his totals. You can read more about that tournament on pg. 14.

The two other players on this list with more than a million in earnings are Javier Zarco, who won a $3,500 buy-in event with a $3 million guarantee in 2017, and 2021 WPT Venetian main event winner Chad Eveslage. ♠
