Johnson Juanda

The 2008 World Series of Poker Europe (WSOPE) was down to 26 players from 363 entries with some familiar names among the big chip leaders.

John Juanda has $7,100,000 in total career total winnings to date. He's the Indonesian born player who now resides in Marina del Rey, California.

He was the 2002 tournament Champion of the Year, winning three World Series of Poker titles, and a World Poker Open Championship title. In November 2004 he won the inaugural Professional Poker Tour event at Foxwoods Casino in Connecticut.

In November 2005 he earned nearly $500,000 in Monte Carlo, Monaco after winning the Monte Carlo Millions Consolation tournament, finishing sixth in the Monte Carlo Millions Main Event, and finishing second at "The FullTiltPoker.Net Invitational Live from Monte Carlo."

Although Juanda has made 6 World Poker Tour final tables, he has never captured a title.

Daniel Negreanu is perhaps the most recognized name in poker today. As of 2008, his total live tournament winnings exceed $10,400,000, behind Jamie Gold, Joseph Hachem, and Phil Hellmuth and has the most tournament earnings of any individual who has not won the WSOP Main Event.

In second place was online poker player, Justin Smith.

Johnny Lodden is the Norwegian poker player in 4th place. As of 2008, his total live tournament winnings exceed $350,000.
