Early frontrunners in poker Player of the Year races

Posted by Steve Ruddock on Feb 07, 2013 Posted in Poker Player News, Tournament News | No Comments »

poyWith several major tournaments already in the books, the 2013 Poker Player of the Year race is already starting to take shape. Even though it’s still early we plan on updating our readers on each on the three major POY races: Cardplayer Magazine, Bluff Magazine, and the Global Poker Index. A number of big names have already jumped out to excellent starts including Dan Shak, Scott Seiver, Sam Trickett, Patrik Antonius, and Vanessa Selbst.

After the WSOP concludes in July we will be creating an aggregate using all three POY races, as well as a couple of our own metrics, including the WSOP Player of the Year race and money won to create the PokerNewsBoy.com rankings.

So here is the first of 12 Player of the Year updates:

4. Vladimir Troyanovsky — 312.20 points

5. Joel Micka — 299.25 points

6. Joe Cabret — 288.75 points

7. Tobias Reinkemeier — 286.58 points

8. Shannon Shorr — 283.88 points

9. Scott Seiver — 275.00 points

10. Sam Trickett — 275.00 points

Cardplayer Magazine Player of the Year standings (accurate as of 2/6/2013)

10. Vanessa Selbst — 1,260 points

Global Poker Index Player of the Year standings (accurate as of 2/6/2013)

1. Michael Telker — 256.47 points

2. Vladimir Troyanovskiy — 239.96 points

3. Tyler Reiman — 238.47 points

8. Dimitar Danchev — 201.78 points

9. Nick Schulman — 198.06 points

10. Vanessa Selbst — 193.78 points

All three ranking systems use a different criterion to determine the Player of the Year:

* Cardplayer Magazine focuses on a player’s results over the course of the entire calendar year.

* Bluff Magazine takes into account a player’s results from the previous calendar year (weighted at about 50% of the current year)

* The Global Poker Index uses a players top cashes from different quarters of the year only, all other results are discounted
