  1. The title of 2014 World Series of Poker Player of the Year officially belongs to George Danzer (pictured). The German won three WSOP bracelets in 2014, becoming the sixth player ever to win three bracelets in a single year. In that elusive department, he joins Puggy Pearson, Ted Forrest, Phil Hellmuth, Phil Ivey, and Jeffrey Lisandro. Danzer solidified his place at the top of the Player of the Year leaderboard after recording his third bracelet at WSOP APAC in Australia in an Eight-Game Mix tournament, his tenth WSOP cash this year. Here are his in the money finishes in 2014; all are in Las Vegas unless otherwise noted: 5th Place, $70,308, Event #5: $10,000 Limit 2-7 Triple Draw 1st Place, $294,792, Event #18 $10,000 Razz 39th Place, $5,517, Event #25: $2,500 Omaha/Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo 9th Place, $49, 061, Event #32: $10,000 No Limit Hold'em Six-Handed 1st Place, $352,696, Event 38: $10,000 Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo 48th Place, $3,759, Event #47: $1,500 Ante Only No Limit Hold'em 44th Place, $6,107, Event #54: $3,000 Pot Limit Omaha Hi-Lo 22nd Place, AU$4,754, APAC Event #1: $1,100 No Limit Hold'em Accumulator 6th Place, AU$7,399, APAC Event #6: $1,650 Dealer's Choice 1st Place, AU$84,600, APAC Event #8: $5,000 Eight-Game Mix Prior to this year, Danzer had six WSOP cashes, his worst being a 14th place finish. He is #17 on the all-time money list for Germany, according to the Hendon Mob, with a little over $2 million in live winnings. Second place in the WSOP Player of the Year race went to Brandon Shack-Harris (pictured), who had nine WSOP cashes this year including one bracelet, which came in a $1,000 Pot Limit Omaha event. Shack-Harris had four top-three finishes this year, one of which was worth nearly a million bucks for taking second in the Poker Player's Championship. Shack-Harris is from Chicago and is #12 on the all-time money list for Illinois, according to the Hendon Mob. Here's how the 2014 leaderboard shook out: 1. George Danzer - 923.50 points 2. Brandon Shack-Harris - 806.70 points 3. John Hennigan - 557.88 points 4. Daniel Negreanu - 519.08 points 5. Ismael Bojang - 467.91 points 6. Daniel Colman - 452.40 points 7. Justin ZeeJustin Bonomo - 449.63 points 8. Richard Ashby - 413.55 points 9. Brock t soprano Parker - 406.25 points 10.

  2. [caption width="640"] Jason Mercier continues to lead the WSOP Player of the Year race (WSOP photo)[/caption] It’s no secret that the WSOP Player of the Year rankings are slightly weighted towards bigger buy-in events and through the holiday weekend, those bigger buy-in events are starting at the 2016 World Series of Poker. The $50,000 Poker Player’s Championship began Saturday and the $25,000 High Roller Pot Limit Omaha begins on Wednesday. The $111,111 High Roller for One Drop begins at the end of that week and if anyone is going to catch Jason Mercier at the top of those POY rankings, those events are going to play an important role. Unfortunately for the chase pack, last year, Mercier cashed in two of those events, including a runner-up finish in the Pot Limit Omaha Championship. That means that not only will Benny Glazer, Max Silver and the rest of the top-five have to make deep runs, they’ll also have to stop Mercier, which has seemed like a nearly impossible task so far this summer. After winning two bracelets in the course of a week, Mercier has continued to crush. He now has 10 cashes in 2016, including a cash at the end of last month in the $10,000 Pot Limit Omaha Championship. Glaser has gone for more quality than quantity, while also doing all his damage in mixed game events. After winning back to back Omaha Hi-Lo events, he’s added a $1,500 Mixed NLHE/PLO and $1,500 Seven Card Stud cashes. He sits second on the current POY standings with 1,352, well off the 2,121 pace set by Mercier. While there is a gap at the top, Silver is making a push up the leaderboard, jumping into the top-three after being outside the top-ten a week ago. That’s because Silver has seemingly saved his best for the second half of the summer, pushing his cash total to nine and adding two deep runs in the $5,000 No Limit Hold’em event and the $10,000 PLO Championship. Throw in a 24th place finish in the $10,000 Six Max No Limit Hold’em Championship and Silver is proving himself across a wide variety of disciplines and buy-in levels. The Brits are separated by just seven POY points but their podium spots aren’t guaranteed, as Michael Gathy is entering July on a rush. He won the $5,000 Six Max No Limit Hold’em event, good for his third career bracelet and then nearly won a forth, finishing runner-up to John Hennigan in the $10,000 Triple Draw Championship. The Belgian has never cashed in the above ‘big three’ events, so it will be interesting to see what his schedule is moving forward. Prior to the start of the summer, Stephen Chidwick was pegged as one of the must watch players that could breakthrough to win his first bracelet. Unfortunately that win hasn’t come yet but he has recorded eight cashes, including two final table appearances. Primarily a mixed game player as well, he’ll certainly not only look to claim his first piece of WSOP hardware but also continue to move up the POY rankings. WSOP POY Top 10 Jason Mercier - 2,121.69 Benny Glaser - 1,352.30 Max Silver - 1,345.39 Michael Gathy - 1,280.91 Stephen Chidwick - 1,278.09 Michael Watson - 1,273.05 Randy Ohel - 1,256.91 Martin Kozlov - 1,252.58 Michael Semenov - 1,214.69 Justin Bonomo - 1,197.99
  3. Last summer, poker players at the World Series of Poker were boisterous in the dislike of the newly implemented Player of the Year scoring system. It appears that the suits that run the WSOP heard the complaints loud and clear and have made significant changes for 2018. The new system rewards more points for wins and deep runs according to a statement released Thursday. A win is now worth approximately 20 times what a min-cash is whereas in 2017 the win was worth between three and eight times as much as a min-cash. The formula used to calculate WSOP POY points has not been made public, but players can use a calculator on the website to calculate approximate points earned for any event provided they know buy-in, field size and finishing position. Here is a comparison of the difference between 2017 and 2018 for some of the marquee events on the WSOP schedule using identical field sizes from 2017. 2018 2017 Event Win Min-Cash Win Min-Cash The Colossus ($565 NLHE) 1,317 66 347.6 32.7 $10K Heads-Up Championship 1,024 51 147.9 62.9 The Millionaire Maker ($1,500 NLHE) 1,341 67 315.7 38.7 $10K Razz 989 49 138.3 53.1 $50K Players Championship 1,338 67 184 70.1 $25K PLO High Roller 1,219 61 201.1 62 $10K Main Event 1,694 85 433.2 53.1 As in years past, events that aren't classified as "open" will not count towards POY point totals. That means the Casino Employees, Seniors, Super Seniors and Ladies Event will not allow players to earn points. Two other events will also not count towards POY: the $1,000,000 Big One for One Drop and the $1,000 Tag Team event. The remaining events, plus the open events at WSOP Europe will count towards the POY race. Under the new system, Chris Ferguson would still have won the 2017 WSOP POY race thanks to a record-breaking 23 cashes which included a bracelet in the €1,650 Pot Limit Omaha Hi-Lo event. The 2018 WSOP begins May 30.
  4. There are 22 events in the books at the 2018 World Series of Poker but the player who took down the first bracelet of the year continues to hold down the lead for Player of the Year. The Leader: Elio Fox Elio Fox, who won the $10,000 Super Turbo Bounty event on the opening day of the Series, sits atop the POY leaderboard with 2,010.14 points. He earned 1,108.8 of those points from that Bounty event and another 634.9 from his runner-up finish in the $100,000 High Roller event. A baby cash in the $1,500 Millionaire Maker earned him an additional 266.5 points. The Chase Group: Joe Cada and Paul Volpe The closest challengers to Fox include a former World Champion and a newly minted three-time bracelet winner. Joe Cada started his WSOP off with a ninth-place finish in the $10,000 Super Turbo Bounty event and then navigated his way through three tables to win the $3,000 No Limit Hold'em Shootout. He's now cashed five times this WSOP for 1,692.71 POY points and sits 317.43 points behind Fox. Paul Volpe, a former #1-ranked PocketFiver, grabbed his third career bracelet in the $10,000 Omaha Eight-or-Better Championship event. He has three other cashes, all in events with buy-ins of $10,000 or more for 1,671.30 points - just 62.41 points behind Cada. The Peloton: Bracelet Winners Galore The rest of the top 10 is populated mostly players who have already grabbed a bracelet this summer. Arne Kern won the Millionaire Maker for his only cash so far, but it was good enough to earn him 1,332.5 points, which puts him in fourth place. Nick Petrangelo, Robrely Felicio, Craig Varnell, Julien Martini sit fifth through eighth thanks largely to their bracelet wins. The only player in the top 10 without a victory yet this summer is John Racener. The former Main Event runner-up sits ninth thanks to six cashes this summer. Racener has 1,149.33 points thanks to a 16th place finish in the $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Super Turbo Bounty, an 86th place result in the $1,500 Omaha Hi-Lo, an eighth-place finish in the Colossus, a 51st place in the $565 Pot Limit Omaha event, a fourth-place finish $1,500 Eight Game and an 81st place finish in the $3,000 Six Max No Limit Hold'em. Despite not having a bracelet yet, Racener sits 860.81 behind Fox. Justin Bonomo wraps up the top 10 with 1,120.3 points thanks to his win in the $10,000 Heads Up Championship. WSOP Player of the Year Top 10 POSITION PLAYER POINTS 1 Elio Fox 2,010.14 2 Joe Cada 1,692.71 3 Paul Volpe 1,671.3 4 Arne Kern 1,332.47 5 Nick Petrangelo 1,269.75 6 Roberly Felicio 1,264.46 7 Craig Varnell 1,194.63 8 Julien Martini 1,159.45 9 John Racener 1,149.33 10 Justin Bonomo 1,120.3
  5. The race for WSOP Player of the Year is at a peak with the Main Event starting today. Last week, Shaun Deeb claimed top honors thanks to his win in the $25,000 Pot Limit Omaha High Roller. Deeb is in second-place and in his former throne is John Hennigan. Hennigan led the race a few weeks ago when he peaked with a $10,000 H.O.R.S.E. bracelet and runner-up honors in the $50,000 Poker Players Championship. Mixed games are Hennigan's primary strength and he flexed a new muscle to go over 3,000 total POY points. The five-time bracelet winner finished seventh in the $10,000 Razz and final two-tabled the $10,000 Limit Hold'em. Over the weekend, Hennigan added a 16th place finish in the $3,200 WSOP.com Online High Roller to his list of cashes. Hennigan traveled to the payout desk nine times so far this summer and is yet to cash in the same game twice. Since June 2, Hennigan finishes in events are no worse than 16th place. Deeb trails Hennigan by nearly 330 points and needs to reach another final table to pass 'Johnny World.' Tied for second on the 2018 cashes list with 12, Deeb joined two small No Limit scores to his total. A min-cash in the $1,000 Super Turbo Bounty and $1,000 Online bracelet event added some points but not enough to be within immediate striking distance of Hennigan. $1,500 Omaha Hi-Lo gold medalist Julien Martini surges up to third place. Seven cashes and two final tables equals 2,096.31 for the highest ranking European. Martini's second final table of the summer came in the $10,000 Razz where he laddered to third place and $134,587. There is a gap of close to 700 points between Martini and Deeb, making the race a two-player affair at this stage. Eric Baldwin's online background displayed itself with a cash in both the $1,000 and $3,200 bracelet events. Baldwin cashed in both and is up to eight scores on the summer. Mike Leah made the biggest move from players not previously in the top-10. Leah's seventh and eight cashes of the WSOP came in consecutive $10,000 events. A seventh-place spot in the $10,000 Pot Limit Omaha and fourth-place bid in the $10,000 Razz bring him over 2,000 points. Elio Fox's place on the podium is at an end. The $10,000 Super Turbo Bounty bracelet winner has not cashed at the WSOP since June 9 in the Millionaire Maker. Paul Volpe hangs in the top-10 thanks to his cash $10,000 Razz. Scott Bohlman, Justin Liberto, and Anthony Zinno all welcome themselves to the top-10 for the first time all summer. Bohlman won his first bracelet on June 21 in the $2,500 Big Bet Mix and supplemented the hardware with sixth place in the $10,000 Pot Limit Omaha. Fifth place in the Millionaire Maker is Liberto's crowning achievement of his WSOP campaign and he now has two final tables to his name in 2018. Liberto fell in seventh in the $3,200 Online High Roller for $37,356. Zinno also cashed in the two online events and has three online cashes this summer including third-place in the $565 Pot Limit Omaha. His mixed game magic includes a bronze medal from the $10,000 Limit Hold'em Championship. Zinno is up to nine cashes this summer. Top 10 2018 WSOP Player Of The Year Points Thru 7/2 Position Name Points 1 John Hennigan 3,130.76 2 Shaun Deeb 2,769.11 3 Julien Martini 2,096.31 4 Eric Baldwin 2,054.58 5 Mike Leah 2,039.80 6 Elio Fox 2,010.14 7 Paul Volpe 1,935.94 8 Scott Bohlman 1,832.07 9 Justin Liberto 1,786.20 10 Anthony Zinno 1,764.42
  6. On Friday at the 2019 World Series of Poker, Dan Zack finished off his 11th cash of the summer with a fourth-place result in the $10,000 Razz Championship. Not only did the run earn Zack another $94,305 in prize money, but it paid big dividends in keeping him in the lead in the WSOP Player of the Year race. That same day, Phil Hui had finished off his ninth cash of the 2019 WSOP with a win in the $50,000 Poker Players Championship. It was Hui’s third final table appearance of the summer and skyrocketed him to 2,830.68 points. Had Zack not earned at least a sixth-place finish, the race would have a new leader on Saturday morning and it would have been Hui. 2019 WSOP Player of the Year Top 10 *Leaderboard as of Saturday, June 29, at 9 a.m. PT. 1. Dan Zack - 2,920.76 2. Phil Hui - 2,830.68 3. Shaun Deeb - 2,393.50 4. Scott Clements - 2,368.02 5. Jason Gooch - 2,268.02 6. Anthony Zinno - 2,186.20 7. Upeshka De Silva - 2,162.02 8. Robert Campbell - 2,034.56 9. Daniel Strelitz - 2,032.04 10. Ari Engel - 1,997.03 Comparing the two players, Zack and Hui, both have a gold bracelet win and both have three final tables. To date, Zack has earned $338,490 from his 11 cashes and Hui has earned $1,277,104 from his nine cashes. The two players have also set their sights on winning the WSOP Player of the Year award. "My plan was always to chase Player of the Year," Zack said following his gold bracelet win a few weeks ago. "When I came in the last three years, I always came in the first week or so with the plan to do that and then if I didn’t do anything in the first week I usually ended up in cash games. This is the first year I’ve done anything in the first couple weeks, so I’m more committed to actually trying going forward." After he won gold this week, Hui echoed the same goal. "I want to win Player of the Year," Hui said. "That was my main goal going into this year. I was going to play everything I could and try to make deep runs, so Player of the Year is first on the list." Deeb, Clements, and Gooch Round Out Top Five Behind Zack and Hui is Shaun Deeb, the defending champion of the WSOP Player of the Year title. Deeb has 11 cashes at the 2019 WSOP, including a runner-up finish in the $10,000 Dealer’s Choice Championship and a fifth-place finish in the $50,000 Poker Players Championship. Scott Clements, who is currently fourth in the race, nearly earned his fourth final table of the summer with a 14th-place finish in the $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo event recently. For Clements, he has six cashes at the 2019 WSOP to date and won the $1,500 Dealer’s Choice event at the beginning of June. Jason Gooch rounds out the top five at 2,268.02 points, and his place on this leaderboard is an interesting one in that the bulk of his points have come from two of the online gold bracelet events held on WSOP.com. Gooch took second in the $600 Online Six-Max Pot-Limit Omaha event for $85,560 and 474.4 points, then he won the $1,000 Online Double Stack No-Limit Hold’em event for $241,493 and 1,030 points. Gooch’s WSOP.com screen name is 'TheBigGift.' Zinno, Engel, Turner, and Negreanu Climb Anthony Zinno took down the aforementioned $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo that Clements ran deep in. The win pushed him to sixth on the WSOP Player of the Year leaderboard. Also in that event, Jon 'PearlJammer' Turner finished fourth and Ari Engel placed 10th. Those results allowed Engel to jump to 10th and Turner to 11th on the WSOP Player of the Year leaderboard. Daniel Negreanu finished fifth in the $10,000 Razz Championship to earn another 379.1 points and improve to 1,817.21 points overall. It was Negreanu’s 11th cash and third final table of the 2019 WSOP, and he’s now 12th in the WSOP Player of the Year race.
  7. The poker world has spent the better part of the last five days celebrating Daniel Negreanu's historic third World Series of Poker Player of the Year victory. It appears that those celebrations were a bit too hasty. A data entry error means that Negreanu did not win the POY after all and Robert Campbell is, in fact, the 2019 WSOP Player of the Year. WSOP officials released a statement Friday afternoon. "We have confirmed an error was made in our results for WSOP Event #68, affecting places 32-46. As a result, Daniel Negreanu was given 213.1 points erroneously in this event. We deeply regret this error and its impact," the statement read. "Recalculating our Player of the Year results has an impact to the standings. Robert Campbell finishes in 1st place in the now final results, with Negreanu dropping to third place. Again, we apologize profusely for the error in our calculations and the impact it has had." The data entry error rewarded Negreanu, and 15 other players, with points from the event from the Las Vegas schedule that they did not actually cash in. Russian poker journalist Alex Elenskiy noticed the error and pointed it out to the WSOP via Twitter on Friday. Based on Elenskiy's research, it appears that Negreanu was credited with a 36th-place finish in Event #68 ($1,000 Online Championship Event) and was credited with 213.1 POY points. [caption id="attachment_627505" align="aligncenter" width="1024"] Negreanu's WSOP.com profile showed him cashing in Event #68 - even though he did not finish in the money.[/caption] As Elenskiy points out, the results for places #32-#46 on WSOP.com for Event #68 are identical to the results for places #32-#46 from Event #87 ($3,000 HORSE). [caption id="attachment_627507" align="aligncenter" width="1024"] The results for Event #68 and #87 showing the copied data.[/caption] Removing the 213.1 points from Negreanu's total leaves him with 3,861.78 and places him in third place behind Campbell and Shaun Deeb. New WSOP POY Standings PLACE PLAYER POINTS 1 Robert Campbell 3,961.31 2 Shaun Deeb 3,917.32 3 Daniel Negreanu 3,861.78 4 Anthony Zinno 3,322.00 5 Phillip Hui 3,186.17 This would have been Negreanu's third time winning the WSOP POY award. He first won it in 2004 and then again in 2013. The 2019 WSOP POY race was hotly contested with Negreanu, Campbell and Deeb all making their way to WSOP Europe in Rozvadov to chase the points necessary. In dramatic fashion, Deeb made the final day of the final event, the €550 Colossus event, thinking he needed a fifth-place finish or better to overtake Negreanu. He actually needed just ninth place or better to pass Campbell. Deeb wound up finishing 11th. This story was updated to include the statement from the World Series of Poker.
