WPT POY Points Leader Will Failla Eliminated
Level 9: 800-1,600, 200 ante
Will Failla entered the day short-stacked, and he was just eliminated when he moved all in after a 10-high flop with 9-9. Unfortunately, his opponent had J-J, and that's the end of the tournament for Failla.
Failla currently leads the Season X WPT Player of the Year race, but his lead is far from secure. There are dozens of people in the field who can still catch him, and we'll begin breaking down the specific numbers as the field gets closer to the money -- and more POY points.
The two players who are closest to Failla in the POY race are Joe Serock and Dan Buzgon. Serock will take the lead with a 15th-place finish, and Buzgon will tie Failla with a 15th, and take the lead with a 12th.
