Who will become the 2019 WSOP Player of the Year?
The special title in the World Series of Poker cannot be won by showdowns or bluffs, but only by skillful playing across all WSOP tournaments.
The Player of the Year ranking has been around since 2004 and has never been more exciting than this year. Almost all the title candidates are at King's Resort, and by November 4 it will be clear who will win the award.
POY points are awarded for each tournament and depend on both the buy-in and the number of participants.
Before the start of the WSOPE in Rozvadov, the Australian Robert Campbell led the ranking, but both last year's Player of the Year Shaun Deeb and the two-time POY Daniel Negreanu are close to the title.
Especially, Daniel strives to get this title for the third time this year – and his chances are pretty high. Thus, it is important for him to play in as many events as possible and collect maximum amount of points.
Almost all players in the top 15 are playing at King's now, which makes the race more exciting than ever. Phillip Hui, Anthony Zinno, David "ODB" Baker, Ishmael Bojang, Dash Dudley or Chris Ferguson still have good chances.
