Bryan Paris Hits $10M Mark Online, Harwood Continues to Crush
American Bryan 'bparis" Paris recently moved past the magic $10m mark, putting him solidly in second place all-time online.
Meanwhile, Loni Harwood continues to add to her impressive resume. The two-time WSOP bracelet winner won her third career WSOP Circuit ring on Monday and is threatening to crack the top 10 of the Women's All-Time Money List.
bparis Moves Past $10M in Online Tournament Earnings
In poker, there are benchmarks for greatness and one of those benchmarks is the All-Time Money List. Daniel Negreanu is #1 on the ATML with Erik Seidel a close second.
Online poker has a similar money list but until recently the only person that anyone really noticed was Chris 'moorman1' Moorman. Until recently, Moorman was the only player in online poker history with more than $10M in tournament earnings. He presently has over $13.83 million according to Pocketfives.com.
There's now a new $10 million man in online poker and that is Bryan Paris. Paris, known online as 'bparis,' recently moved past the $10 million mark and is just the second person ever to do so.
The popular Twitch streamer has online results dating back over 10 years. Paris' resume only boasts two scores of over $100k with his largest coming in a $1K WCOOP event in 2013.
He's twice won the PokerStars Super Tuesday and took down a FTOPS event back in 2013. Originally from Canada he moved to Amsterdam in 2013 to make a run at live tournaments. However, after the birth of his son, he refocused his efforts online.
Loni Harwood Wins Third WSOP Circuit Ring
Loni Harwood is making a play for the title of top female player in poker. On Monday, she added to her impressive resume by winning her third career WSOP Circuit ring at the WSOP-C Palm Beach Kennel Club stop in Florida.
Harwood defeated a field of 1,117 on Monday to take down a $365 NL ring event for her third WSOP-C ring and $61,156. Her recent win adds to an incredible resume that also includes two WSOP bracelet victories.
Harwood won a $1,500 NL Event at the 2013 WSOP for her first title and then won the final WSOP National Championship in 2015 for her second title. The WSOP National Championship is now the WSOP Global Championship.
Harwood has enjoyed a great start to 2017 with over $180k in earnings. Last month she finished 3rd in the WPT Deepstacks Main Event at the Lucky Heart Poker Open in Hollywood, Fl for $110k.
She then cashed in the WPT Borgata Poker Open to move past $2 million in career earnings. Harwood's recent run has allowed her to move up to 11th on the Women's All-Time Money List.
She still has a lot of work to do to catch Vanessa Selbst ($11.8 million in earnings) but she continues to prove that she's one of the most dominant women in poker today.
