WPT Player of the Year: Moon Kim vs. Joe Serock
Level 24: 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante
The WPT Player of the Year race is almost over, but everything is in the hands of Moon Kim (pictured above).
Joe Serock is the current POY points leader with 2,200 points -- he entered this event with 1,800 points, and earned another 400 for his 10th-place finish yesterday.
Moon Kim entered this event with 1,200 points, and he'll need to finish fourth to earn 1,000 points to tie Serock. With a third-or-higher finish, Kim will win the WPT Player of the Year title outright.
Bottom Line: If Moon Kim is eliminated today, Joe Serock will be the Season X WPT Player of the Year. But if Kim survives to the televised final table, the POY title won't be decided until the final day of the season.
