Most WSOP Winnings by Decade

In earlier decades, WSOP Main Event champions always came out on top: Jamie Gold in the 2000s, Huck Seed in the 1990s, Johnny Chan in the 1980s, and Doyle Brunson in the 1970s.

But the Big One for One Drop changed the landscape. Antonio Esfandiari and Daniel Colman topped the 2010s mostly due to their wins in the Big One for One Drop in 2012 and 2014 respectively.

The two most recent Main Event winners, Espen Jorstad and Koray Aldemir have taken the early lead in the 2020s.
