Bryn Kenney has retaken the top spot on the marquee leaderboard of tournament poker: the all-time money list. Kenney cashed for nearly $7.1 million with two scores at the Triton London festival, including winning the $250,000 Luxon Invitational for $6,860,000. As a result, the New York native grew his lifetime earnings to nearly $65.3 million, taking a $1,291,456 lead over second-ranked Justin Bonomo. This was Kenney’s ninth career cash of seven figures or more, and his fourth multi-million-dollar score.

While Bonomo did not attend Triton London, several other top contenders on this list put up big numbers during the series. Stephen Chidwick rose to third place overall thanks to the $2,262,600 in earnings he accrued across six in-the-money finishes. That was enough to see the British star grow his career earnings to nearly $52 million, making him one of just five players in history to surpass $50 million. His largest score of the festival was a fifth-place showing in the $125,000 main event for $1,260,000.

David Peters and Daniel Negreanu joined Bonomo on the sidelines for this series, but every other top-ten contender recorded a score, including Jason Koon, who cashed five times and won two titles. All told, Koon added $3,361,000 in earnings to his lifetime total, enough to move him into fourth place with nearly $50.8 million. Among his handful of cashes was a $1,570,000 payday for a win in the $60,000 no-limit hold’em event. That marked the West Virginia native’s 11th career seven-figure payday. With Chidwick and Koon’s ascension, former all-time earnings leader Negreanu has slid to fifth place.

Isaac Haxton was able to edge his way into the top ten with more than $1.7 million accumulated over three cashes at this stop. The bulk of that came when the American poker pro placed fourth in the main event for just shy of $1.6 million. He now has nearly $41.9 million in lifetime earnings. More than $10 million of that prize money has been secured in 2023, with Haxton cashing 24 times so far this year. His average payday in that sample has been an incredible $419,213. ♠
