The WSOP Player of the Year is often in the back of player's minds when it gets near to the end of the series and players often adjust their schedule if they have a shot at the title.
Right now, the battle seems to be between John Hennigan and Shaun Deeb.
Hennigan leads with 3,130.76 points and Deeb is close behind with 3,111.64. Deeb sat down in this event early on and catapulted himself into the top chip counts so far. Hennigan, however, has just entered the proceedings as he looks to extend his lead.
