The top ten places in descending order are as follows: Erick Lindgren, Daniel Negreanu, Barry Greenstein, Vanessa Selbst, David Singer, Jacobo Fernandez, Andy Bloch, Scott Seiver, Theo Tran and Fu Wong.

Schneider incidentally was the Player of the Year at WSOP 2007. The honor of raking in the most moolah goes to Philip Galfond with $832,219.
