Brian Altman is your Season XVIII Hublot WPT Player of the Year! The two-time WPT Champions Club member highlighted his stamp on Season XVIII with a win at Seminole Hard Rock in January 2020 in the WPT Lucky Hearts Poker Open to become the first player in WPT history to win the same event twice.
Altman’s campaign also includes a 10th place finish in the WPT Legends of Poker, third place in WPT Maryland, and a final table finish in the WPT Borgata Winter Poker Open, which will play to a winner on May 16. Should Altman win that event, he would finish with the most Player of the Year points in WPT history with 3,500, besting Mukul Pahuja’s total of 3,450 in Season XII.
Altman is up to more than $820,000 in earnings this season and will have the ending to his campaign filmed for TV to air on Bally Sports.
For winning Hublot WPT Player of the Year, Altman takes down a $15,000 WPT Passport, complimentary accommodations for Season XIX in a majority of WPT Main Tour events, ground transportation for select WPT Main Tour events, food and beverage credits in select WPT Main Tour events, special Hublot WPT Player of the Year trophy, and a Hublot Big Bang Meca-10 Titanium 45mm time piece valued at $19,900.
