With the year 2014 drawing to an end, a number of poker players have managed to wrap it up with seven-figure score win by playing in high stake tournaments, especially with events tagged over $ 100,000 of buy-in: the Super High Roller. Let us have a look at them. The top event of the year remains the 46th Annual World Series of Poker (WSOP) $ 1 million buy-in Big One for One Drop (held last summer). Daniel Colman won the event to take home $ 15,306,668. With this prize, Colman is ranked No.1 as the biggest Money Maker in poker tournaments this year. The rest of the Top 10 includes Martin Jacobson ($10,786,227), Daniel Negreanu ($ 10,284,118), Felix Vincent Stephensen ($5,167,150 ), Christoph Vogelsang ($4,530,775 ), Thomas Marchese ($4,472,478 ), Mike McDonald ($4,423,442 ), Scott Seiver ($4,092,553 ), Jorryt van Hoof ($3,929,477 ) and Phil Ivey ($3,787,707 ).
Alongside the Big One for One Drop, the nearly closed 2014 has also been marked by other Super High Roller events.
