Cantu rides recent success into POY race
After two more exciting weeks of tournament poker action, the PokerListings Player of the Year race welcomes some new members into the Top 10.
Although the top three names on the list remain the same as at the start of March (Men "The Master" Nguyen, Mike McDonald and Vanessa Selbst (fourth) each fall a position on the leaderboard, Jennifer Golin is joined in a tie for fifth by strong East Coast player Karen Harris. A Connecticut resident, Harris plays in many of the ladies tournaments on the East Coast and, with a win at the WSOPC Ladies Event at Caesars in Atlantic City, moves up to tie with Golin for fifth place.
With these changes, the Ladies POY race currently looks like this:
|Place ||Name ||Points |
|1. ||Marisol Banuelos||640 |
|2. ||Jennifer Harman ||550 |
|3. ||Diane Nguyen ||410 |
|4. ||Vanessa Selbst ||347 |
|5. ||Jennifer Golin ||326 |
|Karen Harris |
|7. ||Lorraine Bane ||320 |
|Regette Bechara |
|Marga G. Dominguez |
|GiGi Dong |
|Christy King |
|Irina Liepina |
|Van Tuyet Nguyen|
|Louise Rocchio |
Numerous tournaments will affect both Player of the Year races over the next couple of weeks. The WPT's final event in Reno is currently being played, and its stop at Foxwoods and its season-ending WPT Championship both loom on the horizon.
In addition, the WSOPC has Caesars Indiana on the schedule in the next couple of weeks, and the European Poker Tour will visit Italy for the first time late this month. Factor in some of the smaller tournaments from around the world and the PokerListings Player of the Year races could have an entirely different look a few weeks from now.
