This is a discussion on How Much Did The Pokerbrat Cash at WSOP 2021? within the online poker forums, in the Poker News and Events section; Hi All,
now before you click on the link - have a guess at how much Phil Hellmuth won across 35 different events at WSOP
There is no denying his skill at the tables. I honestly don't think he cares about the money anymore. I think it's all for glory, player of the year, hall of fame - leaving a legacy. It is clear that he absolutely LOVES the game.

No worries pirateglenn!
A few years ago I can remember quite a lot of discussion regarding players actually being rated on their buy-ins compared to their cashes as this would produce an accurate reflection of their 'earnings'. As far as I know Daniel Negreanu is the only player that has been transparent in this manner.
Naturally it is quite easy to follow a series such as the WSOP and compute buy-ins against cashes, but outside of this things become hazy because the average player does not want to release such information. Further, most would not like to reveal their backers or friends who have 'pieces'.
That said, I always take rankings to some degree with a pinch of salt!
