Waxman vaults into Top 5 in 2011 POY race

Posted by Steve Ruddock on Sep 14, 2011 Posted in Poker News | No Comments »

After scoring his first major win at the WPT Grand Prix de Paris, tournament poker pro Matt Waxman vaulted up the Bluff Magazine Player of the Year leader-board. Waxman has been a consistent tournament player over the past few years, but without a major tournament victory it’s hard to crack the Top 10 in the POY races. Now that he has a major win on his resume all of Waxman’s other results have put him in contention for the POY award.

Here is a look at the Top 10 on the Bluff Magazine Player of the Year leader-board as of September 14, 2011:

1. Eugene Katchalov — 1,077.38

2. Bertrand Grospellier — 892.00

3. Matthew Waxman — 879.05

4. Erik Seidel — 872.83

5. Marvin Rettenmaier — 863.55

6. Maxim Lykov — 820.56

7. Samuel Stein — 775.25

8. Jason Mercier — 766.43

9. Galen Hall — 762.45

10. Ali (Shahryar) Eslami — 758.39

Waxman managed to only move into the #7 spot on the Card Player magazine Player of the Year leader-board due to the different criteria the two sites use. Here is a look at the Top 10 on the Card Player Magazine POY leader-board as of August 14, 2011:
