The World Poker Tour is coming to a conclusion, and there are only a few tournaments remaining where players may accumulate points in the continuing competition to determine who will be rated first as the Player of the Year in 2022.
Ray Qartomy, who placed third in the WPT Choctaw in May and second at the WPT Legends of Poker at the Parkwest Bicycle Casino, is now in first position.
Mark Davis, who took first place and a $1 million prize in the WPT Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown, is ranked second. Alexander Yen, the WPT Lucky Hearts Poker Open champion, comes in third.
Chance Kornuth is in fifth position with his win at the WPT Choctaw and his cash at the WPT Venetian, while Robert Mizrachi is in fourth with his victory at the WPT Venetian.
The current standings podium is as follows:
Here are the top 20 players on the leaderboard:
|Ranking||Player||Points||WPT Earnings||Cashes||Final Tables||Titles|
The top three finishers on the WPT Season XX Player of the Year Leaderboard will each get a WPT Passport worth $15,000, $10,000, and $5,000, which they may use at any Season XXI WPT live event worldwide, so there is a lot on the line.
The WPT Passport will act as a player’s buy-in for the Season XXI live events; it cannot be transferred to another player and cannot be utilized by anyone else.
There are still four World Poker Tour venues left, and the competitions there give competitors with points that let them move up leaderboards and into the running for 2022 Player of the Year:
