EPT Season #7: $100,000 PCA Super High Roller

EPT, 2011-01-10, by Ozone

Another tournament, another seven-figure score for Daniel Negreanu. Ho-hum. With his second-place finish in the $100,000 Super High Roller event at the PCA last weekend, Negreanu tacked another $1,000,000 onto his career winnings. The score was just enough for him to move past Phil Ivey into first-place on the poker all-time winnings list.

Negreanu now boasts career earnings of $14.1 million, some $300,000 more than his counterpart Ivey. The Canadian first came onto the live poker scene in 1997 by logging a $1,050 cash in a $200 limit hold'em event at the Orleans Open in Las Vegas. In the 13 years since, he's averaged more than $1 million in gross cashes in live poker tournaments a year.

Eugene Katchalov prevailed over Negreanu to win the Super High Roller event, which saw an impressive 38 entrants cough up the six-figure buy-in, for a $1.5 million payday. Katchalov may not exactly be a household name in the poker world, but this finish put him just a few dollars behind Doyle Brunson on the all-time winnings list. With nearly $6 million in career winnings, Katchalov may be the winningest player you've never heard of.

Bryn Kenney, Nick Schulman, and Humberto Brenes rounded out the top five money finishers in the event.
