The European Poker Tour Season 10 Player of the Year race is on, and as you know players will be able to accumulate points in all events throughout Season 10, regardless of the buy-in level. In addition, all of the Festival Events (Estrellas, UKIPT, Eureka, FPS, IPT) that combine with an EPT tour stop will be eligible for Player of the Year points. The winner of this season’s award will walk away with €50,000 in Main Event buy-ins, good for any PokerStars or Full Tilt sponsored event.
The Global Poker Index (GPI) points formula, which will be used to determine the EPT10 POY, is a bit complicated, but you can read about all the details here. Best French player? Erwann Pecheux in the number 92 spot.
Here are the current top ten on the EPT10 POY Leaderboard (last updated Jan. 28, 2014):
It's worth noting that the only player in the top ten at Deauville is Kenny Hallaert, so he'll look to close the gap a bit between him and Ole Schemion.
