Peter Traply reveals his results public turns out he is the biggest winner of all time!
What was unimaginable only a few days ago, is now reality – Chris Moorman is no longer the biggest online poker tournament winner of all time. Hungarian player, Peter “Belabacsi” Traply decided to make his results public on PocketFives and it turns out he has more winnings than Chris Moorman!
Chris “moorman1” Moorman was dominating the online tournament scene for years.
It was widely reported in 2013 that he was the first one to cross the $10 million mark in online MTT earnings. In 2018, the poker world celebrated him as the first one to cross the $15 million mark.
The closest player to him on the PocketFives all time money list, the Swedish Niklas “lena900” Åstedt, seemed a safe distance from him. He’s still over $500,000 away from the British poker pro.
However, out of the blue, a new challenger came and took the number one spot.
Peter “Belabacsi” Traply overtakes Chris Moorman as biggest online tournament winner
Evidently, it’s impossible to rack up over $16 million in MTT winnings – the sum needed to be the biggest winner of all time – in a few days.
Rather, what happened was that users on the online tournament database PocketFives can choose whether or not to make their MTT results public. Belabacsi has just decided to do so.
Actually, he’s been putting MTT cashes on his P5 tally since August 19th, 2006. He has over 12,000 ITM finishes on PokerStars alone. He has an additional 5,700 cashes on partypoker where he plays under the screen name “HungarysHero”, and another 2,100 cashes on the late poker site Full Tilt. Belabacsi has accounts on smaller sites, such as Winamax and William Hill as well.
Belabacsi’s career online tournament earnings is a whopping $16,727,488 as of now.
In June 2018, we’ve seen Justin Bonomo overtake Daniel Negreanu on the top of the live tournament earners’ list. A year later, there was a dethroning on the online tournament scene as well.
Who is the man behind the screen name Belabacsi?
Belabacsi is a Hungarian professional poker player whose real name is Peter Traply. He was born on March 27th, 1987.
His username means “Mr. Béla” in Hunagarian – “Béla” being a common Hungarian first name. The “cs” digraph in the Hungarian word “bácsi” is pronounced as “ch” in English.
Peter Traply has seen a considerable amount of success in the live tournament scene as well.
In 2009, he won a World Series of Poker bracelet in the $5,000 No Limit Hold’em shootout event for $348,755. A year earlier, he made it in the money at the WSOP Main Event. He finished 188th out of a field of 6,844 players and won $38,600.
Overall, his Hendon Mob page shows a total of $917,920 in career earnings over the course of 25 individual cashes and 12 years.
