Punnat Punsri is a professional poker player from Thailand. As of date, he ranks 1st in the Thailand All-Time Money List with total live earnings amounting to $4,417,568, more than double the next on the list.

Punsri’s rise to the top has been meteoric to say the least. His first taste of tournament success came in the Rainbow Bristol Masters Series 4 where he won a measly $537 for placing 15th in the series’ main event.

Three years passed by with nothing to show for it but then in August 2017, things must have started clicking because he burst out with a top place finish at the Super High Roller Event of the Governor UK Poker Tour in Coventry and bagged $22,391 for it.

The year 2019 saw an uptick in Punsri’s wins in the poker tournament scene. He cashed in six tournaments in three different countries, placing 1st on two of them, with one earning him his largest payday at the time at $51,179. Unfortunately, the global health pandemic brought the run to a screeching stop.

Following the relaxation of health protocols, Punsri decided to take on Las Vegas, USA. The last quarter of 2021 saw Punsri cashing in multiple tournaments in the famed city. This carried on until the following year which he opened with quite the bang. On January 5 and 6, Punsri snatched the top prizes for two Venetian High Roller events of the PokerGo Tour in Las Vegas for a total scoop of $251,237.

However, even the twin victory did not amount to even half of his winnings for placing 3rd in the High Roller 8-handed event of the 53rd World Series of Poker (WSOP) on June 6 of the same year. He earned $593,481 for it, far and away his largest win at the time.

In July 2022, Punsri came close to winning his first WSOP bracelet taking the chip lead at the heads-up level of the Poker Hall of Fame Bounty event of the 53rd WSOP in Las Vegas. However, he ultimately had to settle for 2nd place after seeing his Aces get cracked after going all-in pre-flop.

The let-down was quickly compensated, though. Within three months of setting a personal best record for his largest live cash, Punsri greatly surpassed it. In Kyrenia, Cyprus, he clinched the Main Event of the Triton Poker Super High Roller Series for an astounding $2.6 million payday, his best live cash to date.

The poker world is sure to watch Punsri’s continued ascent to the top.
