The 2018 World Series of Poker Europe is set to begin in a couple weeks. Here’s a preview of what players can expect, as well as a recap of how the WSOP Player of the Year race has shaped up as it heads into the home stretch.
With debate once again raging about how the World Series of Poker Player of the Year formula is messed up, James Guill latched on to two-time WSOP POY Daniel Negreanu’s proposals for changes and tweaks them to reflect a more balanced point distribution mechanism.
Do you think James’ proposals would work? Have a look and have your say in the comments section.
While the World Series of Poker is universally acknowledged as the focal point of the poker year, January is arguably the best time of the year to be a poker fan.
There are plenty of reasons why this is the case, but we’ve narrowed them down to the top five. We’re pretty sure that you’ll be nodding right along after you get to the bottom of the list.
Amazingly, with just two bracelet events yet to conclude this year, six poker players are still in contention to win WSOP Player of the Year. We break down the details of this year’s exciting race in this poker blog post.
With apologies to Phil Hellmuth, this year may not be the year of the “brat” after all, but rather the year of the “lamb”, Ben Lamb. Already having won a WSOP bracelet this year in the $10,000 buy-in Pot Limit Omaha Championship, and with an additional 2nd place finish and 2 other big cashes to his credit, Ben Lamb has literally has his way at the 2011 World Series of Poker. This poker blog has given plenty of space to the accomplishments of Hellmuth, the all-time leader in WSOP bracelets won with 11, but Lamb has in fact done him one better and is the current leader in the WSOP Player of the Year race.
Lost in all of the hullabaloo of Michael Mizrachi making the final table of this year’s WSOP Main Event, with a chance to tie for Player of the Year honors, was the man who was already guaranteed to at least be the co-winner, Frank Kassela.
