At number 5 is Johnny Chan with an incredible run in the WSOP Main Event

There was a time in the late 1980’s when Johnny “Orient Express” Chan was considered an invincible monster of live tournament poker. One of the main reasons for this was his back to back victories in the Main Event in 1987 and 1988.

Erik Seidel is number 4 on our list with his stunning year in 2011.

Erik Seidel is a remarkable individual in terms of longevity and consistency,having been hitting solid tournament scores for the best part of 30 years.

Steve O’Dwyer comes in at number 3 with an epic run between January 2015 and January 2016.

Throughout 2015, the high stakes poker world was collectively frightened on numerous occasions, by a particular foe sat across from them, as he won 3 High Rollers, 2 Super High Rollers, and a few other tournaments along the way.

Number 2 is Fedor Holz and his run of tournament results which were so persistent that they couldn’t even be stopped by his retirement.

During the first 8 month of 2016 Holz accumulated a grand total of 14.65 million dollars,banking a seemingly endless stream of huge scores before announcing his retirement just after the WSOP One Drop event, which he inevitably won, for almost 5 million dollars.

Occupying our number 1 spot is Daniel Colman with his incredible run in 2014.
