DANIEL NEGREANU says in he´s blog that he use alot of time looking on poker stats.

""I've been loving poker lately, just really enjoying playing the game and I have no idea why, but it's true.

I'm looking forward to every tournament I enter and expect to go really deep.

I play poker at this point mostly because I'm a total stats geek, especially when it comes to fantasy sports.

Instead of rooting for random athletes to do well in games, I can check up my own poker stats and look to improve them.

Kind of a high goal I've set for myself is to overtake Jamie Gold as the all-time money winner in tournament poker since they've started tracking those types of stats, within a year.

Right now I sit in the #2 spot, and in the top 10 are each and every one of "my boys" who started out in this business around the same time: John Juanda, Phil Ivey, and Allen Cunningham.

Among the 4 you are looking at 18 WSOP bracelets and close to $40 million in career earnings depending on which site you are looking at.

One site has the top ten looking like this:

1st Jamie Gold $ 12,170,024
2nd Daniel Negreanu $ 10,874,018
3rd Joe Hachem $ 10,744,616
4th Phil Hellmuth Jr $ 10,681,368
5th Allen Cunningham $ 10,306,817
6th Scotty Nguyen $ 10,017,543
7th Phil Ivey $ 10,007,716
8th T.J. Cloutier $ 9,373,135
9th John Juanda $ 9,330,774
10th Erik Seidel $ 9,294,401

I have a slim lead on the all-time WPT money list and I need to start playing more of those to strengthen that lead:

1st Daniel Negreanu $ 5,491,232
2nd Carlos Mortensen $ 5,260,360
3rd Tuan Le $ 4,490,643
4th Michael 'The Grinder' Mizrachi $ 4,168,766
5th Gus Hansen $ 4,110,801
6th Alan Goehring $ 3,929,407
7th Joe Bartholdi Jr. $ 3,760,165
8th David Chiu $ 3,615,036
9th Nick Schulman $ 3,127,762
10th Justin Cuong Van Tran $ 3,077,798

The WSOP stats are where I really fall behind and need to put a few good years together in a row to make some moves on those lists.

With my three WSOP cashes in Europe that gave me 8 on the year, but just 33 overall in 11 years for an average of 3 a year which is much lower than some others.

How about this stat, though, Layne Flack has only cashed 19 times at the WSOP but won... 6 times! That's pretty sick.

There are 18 people in the world with more WSOP bracelets than me.

My 33 cashes puts me 33rd on the list, Juanda has a total of 45 cashes by comparison.

I rank 25th in WSOP earnings with $2,984,419, while Allen sits fourth on the all-time WSOP money list with $7,341,873.

Both Ivey and Juanda have also earned more than I have at the WSOP.

Ivey has the most WPT final tables with 8, and an impressive group of players follow him:
1 Phil Ivey 8
2 Daniel Negreanu 7
2 Gus Hansen 7
2 Scotty Nguyen 7
5 David Pham 6
5 John Juanda 6
7 Barry Greenstein 5
7 Erick Lindgren 5
7 JC Tran 5
7 Ted Forrest 5

I surf through all this stuff all the time and have a ton of fun with it.

Also helps motivate me to climb the ladder or in some cases maintain a lead.

I don't really care all that much about money, I really don't. I play poker because I love the competition.""
