In the first five WPT events she ever played, Cate Hall cashed in all five, and made two final tables. That’s enough to give her the points lead for the Hublot WPT Player of the Year race. Hall is in the field here at LAPC, looking to add even more points to her total.

Right behind Hall on the leaderboard is Kevin Eyster, just 25 points behind. (A min-cash is worth 50 points.) Eyster won the WPT Five Diamond World Poker Classic in December, where Hall finished fifth. Rounding out the POY top three is Jake Schwartz, who finished fourth in that same event.

The winner of the Season XIV Hublot WPT Player of the Year title will be awarded a custom-made, one-of-a-kind Hublot timepiece before the season-ending WPT Tournament of Champions at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino.
