Well it is that time of year when the savviest of poker players will be having a few little bets and wagers on who they think will be crowned this year’s World Poker Tours’ player of the year, and boy has it been one brilliant year in regards to killer hands and unbelievable bluffs!
With many entrants in many of the World Poker Tours’ events originating from the online poker playing environment and having possibly won their entry into one or more of the land based events simply by playing poker online in a low cost or poker freeroll then it may not be a surprise to see such a relatively unknown player bag the title!
In terms of which player has won the most then in a financial sense then it is of course Carlos Mortensen, Daniel Negreanu and Michael Mizrachi who have walked away with the most cash in their playing career so these players may be worth a small punt if you are having a bet on who will lift this year’s Player of the Year title.
However, if it is the players who have won the most titles then you should be looking at either Carlos Mortensen or Gus Hansen who have a total of three World Poker Tour titles each, so either of these two players may be worth a small wager!
Whilst it can often be a little expensive from most recreational poker players to buy directly into any World Poker Tour event you will be able to take part and possible win an entry via one of many online poker sites offering either a poker download platform or an instant play one and then play online poker via a satellite type feeder tournament and could win an entry into a World Poker Tour event which is similar to online poker offered by Bovada.lv
So if you like to play Texas Hold’em online then do have a look around to see just which online poker sites are offering these satellite and feeder tournaments, for if all goes to plan you never know you could end up winning a major event and could make your dreams of becoming a Player of the Year come true, for a massively reduce cost!
The Season XII Player of the Year current standings see both Anthony Zinno and Jordan Cristos currently in top place closely followed by Dan Heimiller, Alexey Rybin and Vanessa Selbst, so it is probably the clever money that is on one of these players to take this year’s title, however never underestimate the power of the underdog for a run of good games could see any one of them jump up to the top of the leader board and end up lifting the title.
The one thing you can always guarantee in any poker tournament is the unexpected, and that is what makes playing poker either online poker or land based poker entertaining, exciting and a really enjoy pass time for many players, we await the Player of the Year announcement with great interest!
