American poker player Bryan Paris has recently reached one of the biggest milestones in the online game by winning an accumulated total of more than $10 million in prize money. Paris is only the second player in the world to achieve this feat, and he follows the trail that was first blazed by British professional Chris Moorman, who has won more than £13.8 million by playing poker online.


As regular readers will be aware, online poker has been illegal in most American states since 2011, so Paris left his California home after the ban to move to Europe, where the online game has gone from strength to strength. From his new base in Amsterdam, Paris has demonstrated that online poker can be as profitable as a player wants it to be, and that fans of the game who develop their skills can be just as successful as those who focus on live tournaments.

Paris has participated in plenty of offline games, and has done well in them, winning a total of more than $711,000, with his biggest win being worth just over $100,000. That is an impressive sum, by any means, but it is dwarfed by the $10 million that he has amassed from his online game, and when one considers that Paris is just 31 years of age, he has plenty of time to reach even more impressive milestones in the future.

For players who are wondering how Paris operates, we can tell you that he tends to focus on Multi-Table Tournaments for higher stakes. He plays at a wide variety of online poker sites, including PartyPoker, where his nickname is ‘sir-limpsalot’, and 888Poker, where he goes under the nickname ‘DePittsterje’. 

The largest cash reward that Paris has achieved in an online game is $111,792, but his average cash is a considerably smaller $842. That is a figure which should encourage everyone who plays the game, because it shows that massive long-term success is much more about making reasonable gains on a consistent basis that it is about landing lottery-sized payouts once in a blue moon.

We congratulate Paris on reaching this significant milestone in his online poker career, and we wish him continued success in the future. We also hope that his achievement will inspire other online poker players who harbour their own ambitions of profiting from the game in a meaningful way.
