WSOP 2012: Team Pros climb earnings list as One Drop approaches

wsop-130x100.pngFor the past several weeks, I've been posting the updated 2012 World Series of Poker earnings list for Team PokerStars Pro. It's been interesting and enlightening to see how each Team Pro is faring during the now-50-event grind in Las Vegas. Of course, in a matter of days, all of this work may seem a little silly. This weekend marks the $1 million buy-in One Drop charity tournament. At least five Team Pros are planning to play, with more potentially getting in through satellites. If just one of them manages to cash, this list is going to look pretty skewed.

With all of that said, here is the up-to-the-minute look at the top five Team PokerStars Pros at the WSOP so far this year.

TEAM PRO 2012 WSOP MONEY LEADERS

1. Joe Cada: $415,344
2. Vanessa Selbst: $202,346
3. George Danzer: $140,825
4. Barry Greenstein: $131,004
5. Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier: $112,156

Though it's not reflected in the top five, Viktor Blom was the biggest mover on the week. He cashed for $105,235 in the $50,000 Poker Players Championship, placing 14th out of 108 entries. It was his second cash of the WSOP. He sits in sixth place overall out of the Team Pros in Las Vegas.

A week from today, the preliminary events will draw to a close and all eyes will be on the $10,000 Main Event, everyone's last chance at a big score to close out the summer. The PokerStars Blog will be in Las Vegas for all ten days to provide in-depth coverage of the action.

Good luck to the Team Pros headed to the $1 million Big One for One Drop this Sunday.

For now, gaze upon every Team PokerStars Pro and Team Online cash in the WSOP so far.
