Steven Morris

Steven Morris

The PartyPoker LIVE UK Poker Championships Super High Roller final saw a cool head needed to prevail against the stacked field of experienced players, including ambassador Marcel Luske and MILLIONS Germany 50,000 winner Michael Chi Zhang. But when it came down between Morris piece-by-parking his mouse cursor over a tiny letter at a time on an old computer screen while playing live online poker for high stakes money, He won big! This Birmingham native who’s not been seen much around these parts lately is enjoying his newfound fame after winning first prize worth £70k (USD 100K).

Adrian Mateos

The young and talented Spanish player Mateos is one of the most recent additions to this list. He turned 23 over the summer, where he broke world records for being both youngest AND second-to third youngest players ever (after小金人) with three WSOP bracelets under his belt by becoming an international champion at 19 years old! In addition, he has now collected 10 million dollars in live earnings while mainly playing online poker tournaments and making appearances outside Asia, such as coming first place finish ACOP 2017 held in Macau last year.

Stephen Chidwick

When Chidwick’s poker playing career peaked, he quickly won two major tournaments. The first came during spring 2017 when his victory atop the PokerStars Championship Barcelona pay-outed him €690k ($760K). A few months later and less than 20 km away from where we now stand on Instituto Arangoico Resort & Casino’s grounds; this Englishman added another WSOP bracelet after capturing Stage 1 of ACOP Main Event final table – finishing fourth but Collecting more importantly than silverware due attention span abroad: Panama City.

Fedor Holz

The young German poker pro is top of his country’s All-Time money list. With huge live earnings of over $26 million in just two years (since 2017), it’s no wonder he has come out on top for many consecutive matches without even playing at the WSOP this year! He explained during one interview, which can be found online if you search “PokerStars Championship Monte Carlo.”

David Peters

When you think of poker players, Bryan Peters may not be the first who springs to mind. But this American has been a pro for over ten years, and during that time, he’s cashed in at least 47 $1K+ tournaments without ever winning any bracelet or other prominent prizes – until last year! In 2016 alone, there were five different occasions where his winnings exceeded 400k USD; four times, they hit 500K+, three 2 Million dollar milestones, and one 1Buck4 uFromTheW HDMI cable deal gone wrong.

Nick Petrangelo

Petrangelo is one of America’s most successful poker players, thanks to his three bracelets and one-second place finish. He burst onto this scene in 2015 when he won a WSOP bracelet for $3K No- Limit Hold ’em Shootout Event 1: €2k/-4 Sultans. The following year (2016)… finanz journalist habanero interviewed him after winning two more first prizes, including EPT Season XIII at Barcelona, Spain, which had EEG earnings totalling about 460690 EURO or 9 Mio US Dollars.

Justin Bonomo

Justin Bonomo is an aggressive player who has been called out for his comments on PokerStars. He accused the company of having a refund loophole that allowed players to make more than they paid when online servers crashed, but this was not true–the makers corrected their error after being questioned by other pros! In live games, though he’s accumulated over $17 million and claimed one WSOP bracelet so far, seven appearances at final tables aren’t bad either. This year saw him come first twice in Aria casinos, with several runner-up positions throughout 2017 also intact (although both times there were larger tournaments responsible).

Dan Smith

While Dan Smith may be on par with Bonomo regarding live earnings, the New Jerseyan’s success is owed mainly to Aria High Roller events. He visited Macau for two out of three games and won both times – including reaching finals at PokerStars Championship!

Stefan Schillhabel

The second German player on this list, Schillhabel, has been making waves in Macau recently. Last month he won the Triton Super High Roller Series taking home $752 444! This is his second win of 2017 and marks another successful performance from an impressive turn at The PokerStars Championship, where he reached the finals before bowing out to eventual champion Sam Straus Jr… Despite no WSOP bracelet yet, though – which will hopefully come soon enough!–his ability to top eight GPI tops 10 propels him even higher up those rankings.

Koray Aldemir

Aldemir is a German poker player who has reached the final in many high-stakes events. He’s been seen at tables all over Las Vegas, Los Angeles and even abroad like Barcelona, where he finished fourth earlier this year. His calm exterior keeps him anonymous, which makes it easier for people to forget that when Aldi isn’t playing his favourite game (he studied psychology), then you’ll find him learning something else, such as psychology– Vienna locals say they’ve never heard of anyone called “Aldiem” before so there must be another name behind those goggles.

Becoming a Pro

The poker world has seen a shift in recent years. The top players from years ago are no longer on the scene, while new faces take their place and continue to make headlines with impressive results at bracelet events every day. One example is Jacob Meister, who made history as an online-only competitor by capturing two World Series of Poker bracelets within six months last year – one gold-coloured Straw Hat award for a $1 million+ prize pool event where he finished 2nd runner-up; another silver belt buckle after winning WPBSA Main Event worth over 6 figures!

It’s never been easier to get into professional poker playing. Thanks to the internet, any player with an Internet connection can now access competitive tables and play against top-notch opponents without spending hours of their day stuck inside some local casino playing with less than stellar talent more often than not!
