Poker players and their cars – what the big poker players drive

Successful poker players are no doubt some of the most discussed (and richest) people on earth. The top poker professionals earn millions of dollars per year and many of them like to show the world how successful they are by buying the best set of wheels money can buy.

Having won a World Poker Tour and 10 World Series of Poker bracelets, Phil Ivey is undoubtedly one of the planet’s most famous poker players ever. With an estimated worth of around $100 million this guy can drive whatever he wants. His choice of wheels is a 2005 Mercedes Benz SLR McLaren.

Apart from the Mercedes Ivey also owns a number of Rolls Royce Phantoms, just to make sure he is always driving the right car at any given event.

Vanessa Rousso is the hero of many a female poker player. Having won more than $3.5 million over the years has made her one of the top poker winners in history. Her choice of wheels matches her fame, and her sleek silver Bentley GT turns heads wherever she goes. Before the Bentley she drove a canary-yellow Lamborghini Gallardo, which might shout luxury, but does it while also saying that this lady is going places fast.

Canadian poker star Daniel Negreanu has so far won 6 World Series of Poker bracelets plus two championship titles for the World Poker Tour. Global Poker Index recognized him as the top poker player of the decade. Until now he has raked in about $33 million in winnings.

Here comes the surprise: this world class Canadian poker champion drives a Tesla S Series – a spacious, high-tech luxury car, but not really one that has made a name for itself as a sports car.

You might be a novice poker player today, but nothing stops you from one day following in the footsteps of the masters described above. Study the techniques they are using, refine your game and reach for the stars.
