WSOP 2012: Cada tops money list as main event looms

wsop-130x100.pngJoe Cada, the 2009 World Series of Poker champion and Team PokerStars Pro, has taken the top spot among his fellow team members on the 2012 WSOP earnings list. It's not going to be easy to knock him off.

As we've been doing for the past several weeks, we tabulated the earnings of every member of Team PokerStars Pro and Team Online who has cashed at the WSOP so far this year. So far this year, the members of Team PokerStars Pro and Team Online have combined for around $1.25 million in cashes. Around a third of that money is in Cada's bank account today.

Earlier this week, Cada finished runner-up in a giant $1,500 NLHE event and won more than $400,000. It marked the first time since the beginning of this year's event that Vanessa Selbst wasn't leading the pack.

Here are the top five players on Team Pro so far this year.

TEAM PRO 2012 WSOP MONEY LEADERS

1. Joe Cada: $412,424
2. Vanessa Selbst: $182,019
3. Barry Greenstein: $124,257
4. Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier: $112,156
5. Victor Ramdin: $60,165

Joe Cada leading Team Pro at 2012 WSOP

The $10,000 2012 WSOP Main Event begins two weeks from tomorrow. It doesn't leave Team Pro a great deal of time to nab its first bracelet of this year's Series. We also can't fail to mention how a cash in the $1 million buy-in One Drop charity event could completely skew these numbers of by the end of the Series. As of right now, Jonathan Duhamel, Daniel Negreanu, Jason Mercier, and ElkY are confirmed players in the event.

For now, however, here's the complete rundown of Team Pro and Team Online cashes.
