Anchorage poker pro Adam Hendrix, who enjoyed his most lucrative year in 2022 with more than $1 million in winnings, this week bagged his biggest payday of 2023 – $130,000.

Hendrix finished third among 130 players in Event #3 at the PokerGo Tour’s Pot-Limit Omaha Series. The event in Las Vegas required a $10,000 buy-in, or entry fee.

That marked Hendrix’s second third-place finish this year. His third in a No-Limit Hold ‘Em game at the Lucky Hearts Poker Open in Hollywood, Fla., in January earned him $70,500.

According to thehendonmob.com database, Hendrix has cashed in 10 events this year, with four top-10 finishes, for a total of $271,684. The site pegs his career live-game earnings at more than $4 million, which coupled with nearly $800,000 in online earnings, puts him just a few thousand dollars shy of $5 million in total career earnings.

Hendrix’s other noteworthy cashes in 2023 were for $25,110 and $14,124.

Hendrix this week was second in chips as seven players sat down at the final table at the ARIA Resort & Casino in Sin City. But eventual winner Nacho Barbero of Argentina, who started the final table last in chips, eliminated him while dispatching the field and earning $234,000.

Hendrix last year won three tournaments to give him six career wins.

He was especially productive at the annual World Series of Poker, where he cashed 14 times for $317,000.
