Phil Ivey, the American Full Tilt Pro, recently finished in second place in the $100,000 challenge of Aussie Millions in Melbourne, Australia. Thanks to the win, Ivey received nothing less than AUD$600,000 ($544,219 U.S. dollars) at the same time as he overtook the first place (earlier held by Daniel Negreanu) in the All Time Money List. This means that Phil Ivey now has won the most money all tim[...] Read more » Phil Ivey in top of the all time money list
Posted by DaMessiah666: 12M? I'm not sure he's the player who has won the most money all time ... More than Doyle Brunson? Stu Ungar? There were other times .... I would like to know "All time" what means. Since 1990? 80?
AFAIK they only count live tournaments winnings. WSOP, WPT, EPT... All that stuff... It is impossible for them to monitor cash game winnings...

Posted by DaMessiah666: it wasn't reasonable that Phil Ivey could be compared to Masters of Poker like Doyle Brunson, Stu Ungar, Amarillo Slim, etc ...
The rating we are discussing here is only about tournament winnings. We are not talking about greatness. Doyle Brunson, Stu Ungar, Amarillo Slim, etc could not even dream of the winnings of Phil Ivey. All their wins happened in pre-TV poker history. For example, Doyle Brunson received only 230 000$ for winning WSOP main event in 1976. This is why, disregarding his 10 bracelets and 1 WPT title he is far behind Jamie Gold in winnings.
If they were to adjust all time winnings for inflation, 230,000 in 1976 dollers would be alot closer to 750,000 in todays dollers. I'm petty sure there's a site online that will do the conversion. If u take that into account, Brunson's all time earnings would probably be alot more in line with ivey and Negraneau.
