Another decade has flown by and poker has continued to turn dreamers into poker millionaires. Here is a quick list of the top five all-time biggest winners:

1. Justin Bonomo – $43,463,089
2. Daniel Negreanu – $39,830,194
3.Erik Seidel – $34,601,320
4. Fedor Holz – $32,556,377
5. Antonio Esfandiari – $27,600,000

That comes out to a whopping $178,050,980.00 … that is one hell of a lot of money earned by just the top five players. The question is; how much have you taken home from the game we all love?

To come close to earning even a tiny fraction of that kind of money, you have to play a lot, which means practice, practice and more practice. Play online, play at home, play at every local game you can find. Understand every move you make, study every move your opponents make. And maybe, after thousands of hands played, you might be starting to figure it out. And then, and only then, you might be ready to sit at a professional poker table with some worthy opponents who will, of course, try to squash you quickly and take all your chips.

So, with that said we wish all of you the most prosperous New Year in 2020.

Yes, we know it’s December. Time to talk Santa, snow, Christmas shopping and presents under
the tree. In fact, we hope you continue to do some of your shopping at the Texas Poker Store. However, we know some of our loyal poker-playing fans like to plan ahead, especially if a trip to the 2020 World Series of Poker is in their future.

So, here’s an early Christmas present idea for WSOP fans; maybe you can ask Santa to leave your plane ticket under the tree.

As announced and tweeted by the 2020 WSOP: The 51st annual WSOP will kick off on May 26th and run until July 15th from the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. Two popular tournaments, the Big 50 and the $1000
Seniors Event
have also been scheduled: Big 50: May 28/29/30/31
Seniors: June 18, 2020

The most popular tournament of the year, the WSOP Main Event, will run from July 1st to July 14th with starting flights on July 1st, 2nd and 3rd. Among the other tournaments confirmed for 2020 include the return of the Big 50 No Limit Hold’em, which last year attracted 28,371 entries.

But for now, with only two weeks until Christmas, Hanukah and Kwanza, some serious holiday shopping is called for. Catch the spirit of giving and remember, we here at TPS are open for business and are still offering our Holiday Discounts of 10% on everything in stock. So hurry and get your special poker gifts before it’s to late.

Currently our most popular table is our “Lumen” kidney shaped, 101.5 inches x 46 inches, 10 players plus dealer positions. The table can be customized with your logo or name or whatever. Check it out at http://www.texaspokerstore.com/Lumen-Poker-Table

It’s almost impossible to believe, but it’s Christmas shopping time again. And each year, it seems to get harder and harder to find a unique gift for someone you’re pretty sure has everything!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
