His most recent win was able to net him $365,500 and helped add onto his career earnings that have reached $2.6 million.
That is just how this year has gone for Sean Perry. Throughout 2021 alone, Perry has made it to nine final tables along with his two titles and has earned $1,693,618 total.
Perry picked up 420 Card Player Player of the Year points for his first-place finish in this event also. You could probably expect he is among the top of the standings given his track record in 2021 and you would be correct. He is currently in fourth place but not far behind that third-place spot.
