These days there are more and more poker players taking home millions of dollars, but only one has taken at least one million every year for five years in a row. Erick Lindgren came away with over a million dollars every year from 2004 to 2008. Those are some fairly strong poker chops in our book.
Not many people can ever achieve such lofty success on the poker tables, but there are several current heavy-duty players that could tie Lingren’s record this year and probably break it in 2016. Our favorite player of all time, Daniel Negreanu, stands a better-than-average chance at taking home more than a million again this year. He has made well over a million each year for the last four years, including more than 10 million last year alone. And with the current high-stake poker games worldwide, there is little doubt that our man will add another million minimum to his bankroll and tie Lindgren’s record.
Other players that could easily tie this record are: Philipp Gruissem (closing in on 10 million in total winnings), Brian Rast (7 million +), and David “Doc” Sands (with more than 5.7 million in poker earnings).
Each of these guys has broken the million dollar mark for the last four consecutive years so they all stand a damn good chance at tying Erick Lindgren’s record this year, but we’ll predict that Mr. Daniel “Kid Poker” Negreanu will tie it and go on to break it in 2016. What do you think?
