Michael Addamo

The Australian poker player dominated the World Series of Poker 2021 with wins in the $100,000 high roller for around $2 million and winning the $50,000 WSOP high roller as well as the PokerGo $300,000 super high roller.

His winnings in 2021 were nearly $10 million.

Koray Aldemir

This relative unknown player prior to last year took home $8 million at the 2021 WSOP Main Event and he placed 13th in a WPT high roller event with a cash of $60,465.

Almedin ‘Ali’ Imsirovic

This Bosnian player went on to win back-to-back high roller events at the Aria for $300,000 and $310,000 respectively.

David Peters

This 34-year-old looks to carry his success well into 2022 with a 2nd place finish at the Aria $200,000 high roller, cashing a very respectable amount of $1.3 million.  He also took home $850,00 in the US Poker Open in June.

George Holmes

Yahoo Finance says he's dubbed the ‘home-game hero’, George Holmes narrowly finished second in 2021’s WSOP main event, finishing with a remarkable $4.3 million prize after losing out to Koray Aldemir on the final table.

And Then There's These Seasoned Pros

Justin Bonomo, Daniel Negreanu and, of course, Phil Hellmuth continued their successful run into 2021.  In October, Hellmuth won his record 16th WSOP bracelet.
