Winning the big prizes in poker for a number of times may be a difficult feat to achieve. But the best poker players in the World Poker Tour (WPT) can definitely do this even with great ease. Their secret? Having the right skills and a little bit of luck.
Take the case of Daniel Negreanu considered the biggest earner in the WPT tournaments. He has gone to the final table seven times gaining the highest total winnings. Of course, it follows that those who advance to the final table also earn the most money. It has also been noted that most of the top poker players also do well in other TV tournaments.
While some believe that these players have luck beside them most of the time, a major factor that leads them to win is actually their great skill in playing poker. Employing unique strategies is vital in poker and not purely luck. A poker player needs to be skillful enough and really have a feel for the game in order to come out triumphant.
Winning the big prize in one tournament can happen to any poker player. But when a player is able to reach the final table three or more times in different tournaments, it only goes to show that he is no ordinary player especially in the game of Holdem. And so we have names such as Daniel Negreanu, Phil Ivey and Scotty Nguyen among others in the WPT. These guys have been working hard to win and to earn top rankings in the World Poker Tour.
