Phil Ivey Booted from Top 10 All Time Money List as Jason Koon Surges

Favoring high stakes cash games over tournaments has cost Phil Ivey a place among the top 10 MTT cashers as Jason Koon, Dan Smith and Steve O Dwyer have all passed the poker legend on the all time money list.

An outstanding run at the Triton Poker Super High Roller Series in Jeju that included victories in a Short Deck event for $2,840,945 and the Triton Refresh for $973,306 finds Jason Koon currently in 8th place on the all time MTT money list with $27,911,824, per the Hendon Mob database.

Steve O'Dwyer has also been prolific on the felt in the last few months including a huge score of $1,300,000 for finishing runner-up in the $25K MILLIONS World at the partypoker Caribbean Poker Party a few months ago. A few more cashes since then has O'Dwyer in 11th place at $26,820,595.

Dan Smith's 3rd place finish in Event #6 at the Triton SHR for $1,732,572 has pushed him up to occupy the 10th spot in career tournament cashes with $27,704,822.

Meanwhile, Phil Ivey hasn't recorded a MTT payday for eight months - since his 547th place finish in the 2018 WSOP Main Event for $23,940. Phil got bumped to 12th place all time with $26,267,283.
