"Wow!....Didn't know," was the response from the World Series of Poker top bracelet winner when advised he topped the list of all time money winners in poker.

*$5 Million guaranteed Venom, $1 million for first place!
*$2,650 buy-in
*Win your seat for free via our Step Tournaments now running 24/7
*Satellites and Mega Satellites running leading up to the event


The following players top the list in terms of overall earnings:  

Fedor Holz (Germany): $32.6 million. ...
David Peters (US): $33.1 million. ...
Erik Seidel (US): $35.7 million. ...
Dan Smith (US): $36.7 million. ...
Daniel Negreanu (Canada): $41.8 million. ...
Justin Bonomo (US): $45 million. ...
Bryn Kenney (US): $55.5 million.

But it wasn't Holz who made the comment above.

It was Phil Hellmuth!

That's because Hellmuth tops the list when excluding buy-ins of more than $5.5K.

Hellmuth actually came under some criticism for pointing this out however.

Hellmuth received support from some followers.
