This guy is a true example of how people need to play poker online. Believe it or not, the total win during his career is around 17 million dollars. It sounds amazing, doesn’t it?

The Finland king of the online poker is far away from other poker players from our list.

Well, you can already see the difference between Patrik and other players. Ben is the second player on the list of biggest online poker wins. However, he earned 6 million dollars less than Patrik. Currently, the amount of money that he won thanks to online poker is near 11.5 million dollars.

3. Daniel Cates

This guy is not maybe creative a lot because his pseudonym is w00ki3z. It is not a pseudonym that you will easily remember. However, if you plan to watch him play poker online, then you will remember who he is. Two years in a row, he made some huge successes on Black Friday. Many people believe he is one of the most aggressive online poker players in the world. He is not afraid to raise the bet even against the most experienced gamblers.

Currently, he earned a bit more than 11 million dollars thanks to online poker. Still, we do not recommend beginners to play in the same way as Daniel. He is an experienced player that tends to become number one in the world. You won’t make the same success if you play aggressively as he. For something like that, you will need to gain more experience and knowledge.

4. Phil Ivey

Indeed, this player has one more than 10 million dollars thanks to online poker. Still, when you look closer, when you put all the pieces of his career in one place, he is not top of the heap. However, the numbers say he is in fourth place. He lost around 8 million dollars because he is not the type of person that has a lot of patients. Once again, this is not the person who should impress you with his smart moves. However, if you are willing to risk more, then he might be a good example of that.

5. Sven Heinecker

This is a good example that confirms how poker can be a tough game. We have only four players that reach the value of their wins above 10 million dollars. Sven still did not achieve that result and he earned near 9.8 million dollars. However, we believe he will become the fifth member of the 10+ million dollar club.

The German guy is well-known as the player that has smart moves. Beginners might check how he plays. He usually does not risk too much, but when he does that, he always wins. Ragen70 (that’s his pseudonym) is the guy who knows how to deal with people that are even more experienced than him.


Okay, we provided you with the list of biggest online poker wins of all time. Keep in mind that the history of online poker is not too long. We are sure that there will be many more memorable moments in this industry sooner or later. If you plan to start playing, be careful and smart. However, do not hesitate to sometimes test your luck and risk more. Do not do that with higher amounts of money until you gain enough experience.

Good luck!
