We are midway through our coverage of the 2023 World Series of Poker, and the prize money awarded this year has already grown into the nine-figure range. With all of those millions being paid out, there has been plenty of movement on the WSOP earnings leaderboard. While Antonio Esfandiari remains in the lead, the 2012 Big One For One Drop $1 million buy-in champion has been absent for a few years, and has not added to his tally since 2019.

Daniel Negreanu, on the other hand, has cashed nine times so far at the 2023 WSOP, adding nearly $114,000 to bring his career total at the series to nearly $20.9 million. The six-time bracelet winner has 226 cashes in bracelet events, with his biggest score being the nearly $8.3 million he earned as the runner-up in the 2014 Big One. The 48-year-old has three additional seven-figure cashes in WSOP events, including a second-place finish in the 2019 $100,000 buy-in high roller for $1,725,838 and his win in the 2013 WSOP Asia Pacific main event for $1,087,160.

Like Esfandiari, third-ranked Dan Colman is a Big One champion who has not played recently. Phil Hellmuth, on the other hand, has cashed for $191,320 across eight in-the-money finishes so far this series. The 16-time bracelet winner now has more than $16.9 million in WSOP earnings from 195 cashes. His single largest score from those was his fourth-place showing in the inaugural $1 million buy-in event, which saw him earn $2,645,333.

Poker’s overall money leader, Justin Bonomo, is also among the top earners in WSOP events. The 37-year-old poker pro has cashed for more than $15.7 million in bracelet events, including three first-place finishes. His largest payday ever came when he took down the 2018 Big One for a massive $10 million. Bonomo has cashed five times in 2023 for $744,000, with two final-table finishes in high-roller events accounting for the bulk of those earnings.

Four-time bracelet winner and 2009 main event champion Joe Cada, as well as 2021 main event champ Koray Aldemir, have also been busy at the 54th annual summer series. Cada finished seventh in the $1,500 Monster Stack event for $186,149, while Aldemir has accumulated nearly $330,000 in earnings this year across 13 cashes. ♠
