Top 3 Biggest Cashes in 2018

Isaac Ike Haxtons $3,672,000 payday this week for winning the super-strong Super High Roller Bowl may sound like a huge amount of money – and of course it is – but it does not even come close to making the top 3 of this years biggest winning cashes!

By: Andrew Burnett

In fact to even make the top 10 this year required a $3million cash, but let’s stick to a countdown of the biggest 3 of the year, in reverse order as usual…

3. Mikita Bodyakovskiy: Triton Jeju Main Event - $5,257,027

The Belarusan crusher has been at the very top of the highroller poker world this past couple of years and he proved he has the nerves and game for the big occasion.

The Triton Super High Roller Series was one of the must-watch events this year, and the $250k buy-in Main Event in Jeju, South Korea saw Mikita Bodyakovskiy emerge on top…

2. John Cynn: WSOP Main Event - $8,800,000

Winning the Main Event will always guarantee you a life of fame and, if you can hang onto it, fortune – and John Cynn was the massively popular winner of the coveted gold bracelet and close to $9million this summer.

The fact that he won through such a massive field and with only a $10k buy-in should count for more than just second spot on our list perhaps, but ‘numbers is numbers’ – you can’t argue with them!

1. Justin Bonomo: Big One for One Drop - $10,000,000

Always an incredibly talented player, Justin Bonomo went on the heater of a lifetime at the turn of the year, and when he scooped the $1million buy-in Big One for One Drop at this summer’s WSOP it was the biggest of the year anywhere in the world.

Here are the rest of the top 10 cashes of the year, including those who had massive 2nd or 3rd spot cashes – a grand total of over $50million shared between them!
