Anthony Zinno added his name to the World Poker Tour’s history books in a number of ways Thursday night at the LA Poker Classic. He was the third player in the tour’s history to win back-to-back, and the second to do it in Season XIII alone. He also joined another level of the stratosphere, joining Carlos Mortensen and Gus Hansen as the only players with three career WPT titles.

In honor of that achievement, BLUFF’s bringing back By the Numbers for a special edition all about Zinno’s landmark victory.

603 days

It took Gus Hansen one year, seven months and 24 days to rack up three wins on the World Poker Tour, setting the all-time record more than 11 years ago.

531 days

The new record, which belongs to Anthony Zinno. He won his first title at Borgata in September 2013, and one year, five months and 13 days later he hoisted the WPT Champions Cup for the third time.

17 days

Length of time between Zinno’s back-to-back victories, also a new record. Darren Elias previously accomplished it in 49 days with wins at the Borgata Poker Open and WPT Caribbean, while Marvin Rettenmaier was the first to do so (at the bookends of two different seasons) in 75 days.

503

Number of players outlasted by Gus Hansen in his three wins on the WPT.

2,146

Total number of entries outlasted by Zinno in his three WPT wins.

37th

Zinno’s position on the all-time WPT money list. His first cash on tour didn’t come until January 2013.

$2,155,588

Combined winnings across three WPT wins for Zinno.

$1,911,139.30

Combined winnings in three WPT events for Hansen, adjusted for inflation. His gross WPT earnings in those three events was $1,544,730.

609

Number of Isaia Aquaspider Base S Two-Button suits, size 42 Regular, that could be purchased online from Barney’s New York with the money Zinno’s earned from those three tournaments, once tax is factored in (shipping is free in the United States).

3,254 miles

Miles it would take to drive from Fallsview to the Borgata to the Commerce Casino, the sites of Zinno’s three victories.
