Hot race for the WSOP Player of the Year title as it came down to the final day. In the end, Josh Arieh maintained his lead to become the newest winner. He accrued 4,194.59 points across 11 series cashes. For his achievement, Arieh was awarded US$ 15,000. Here’s a look at his final table runs: 

1st – Event #39: $1,500 Pot Limit Omaha 8-Handed
6th – Event #60: $50,000 Poker Players Championship 6-Handed
1st – Event #66: $10,000 Pot Limit OmahaHi-Lo 8 or Better Championship 8-Handed
4th – Online Event #7: $3,200 NLH Hold’em High Roller 8-Max

7th – Event #84: $50,000 High Roller Pot Limit Omaha
10th Event #86: $1,000 Super Turbo NL Hold’em 

Entering the series, Arieh had two bracelets under his belt with the first one won back in 1999 and the second in 2005. After a fifteen year gold drought, he finally locked up his third and fourth this year. He also reached five other final tables to match up with Phil Hellmuth with an incredible seven final tables each. After the official announcement was made by the WSOP, Arieh tweeted, 

“Holy shit! I can’t believe this really happened! I fkn won WSOP POY… what in the actual fuck!” 

Speaking of Hellmuth, the “Poker Brat” placed 2nd in the POY race with 3,720.01 points. Halfway through the series, Hellmuth was the frontrunner with five final tables which included a win at variant No Limit 2-7 Lowball Draw, one he had been chasing his entire career. This earned him his 16th career bracelet. During the final half of the games, his lead vanished as he was overtaken by several players, including Arieh, and dropping to as low as 14th rank. With only 11 events remaining, Hellmuth zoomed back up into second position after reaching his sixth final table, and nearly had the POY title but fell short in 2nd place at Event #84: $50,000 High Roller Pot Limit Omaha. For Hellmuth’s fantastic run, he was awarded US$ 7,500. Here’s a look at his final table runs: 

6th – Event #2: $25,000 H.O.R.S.E
5th – Event #9: $10,000 Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better Championship
4th – Event #19: #10,000 Seven Card Stud
1st – Event #31: $1,500 No Limit 2-7 Lowball Draw
2nd – Event #36: $10K Dealer’s Choice 6-Handed Championship
8th – Event #78: $10,000 Razz Championship
2nd – Event #84: $50,000 High Roller Pot Limit Omaha

Finishing 3rd in the race with 3,531.03 points was Daniel Negreanu whose late game surge sent him skyrocketing from 16th rank. Up until the last few days of the series, Negreanu only had two final tables of 8th place each then landed two 3rd place high roller finishes to end the series strong. He earned US$ 2,500. Here’s a look at his final table runs: 

8th – Event #32: $3,000 H.O.R.S.E.
8th – Event #49: $10,000 No Limit 2-7 Lowball Draw Championship
3rd – Event #84: $50,000 High Roller Pot Limit Omaha
