There is currently no widespread agreement among the various scoring methodologies over who should be the Player of the Year (POY). The conclusion of the 2022 World Series of Poker Europe has arrived, and with it comes the beginning of the homestretch and the first glimpse of the finish line for the 2022 Player of the Year competitions. However, the arrival of the finish line has brought to some extremely confusing rankings.

CardPlayer POY Advantage Retained by Stephen Chidwick

There was no significant shakeup at the very top of the CardPlayer Magazine Player of the Year rankings. Stephen Chidwick of the United Kingdom continues to dominate the competition, even increasing his advantage over the rest of the field. He has amassed this advantage through achieving a number of high finishes on the High Roller circuit in recent times.

Since the 2022 World Series of Poker, Chidwick has amassed an incredible seventeen cashes, each of which was earned in a tournament with a buy-in of more than $10,000. The CardPlayer Player of the Year system awarded points to him for participating in nine of those events, giving him even more points than he previously had. Chidwick is now in first place in the rankings with 6499 points as November comes to a conclusion.

Alex Foxen, a former player who won Player of the Year, is currently attempting to prevent it from becoming a runaway. Over the past several months, he has been on a spending binge of his own in an effort to keep up with Chidwick, who has been on a similar tear. Foxen’s performance in the $3000 No Limit Hold’em tournament that took place at the 2022 Wynn Classic resulted in 840 more points for him, making it the one event that has been most beneficial to his point total. However, Foxen’s score of 5389 points puts him in a position where he cannot catch up to Chidwick’s total.

Farid Jattin of Colombia is now positioned exactly where he was when we last looked at the contests for Player of the Year. Jattin had some time off following the World Series of Poker this summer, but he was able to get back into the swing of things during the WSOPE tournament in Rozvadov in November. During his run at the WSOPE, the professional poker player from Colombia would record four great finishes, one of which was a third-place finish in the €1500 Six Max No Limit Hold’em tournament. This was his most recent finish in the point standings, giving him a total of 5233 points for the season.

The Field Is Hazed by Adam Hendrix in GPI POY

The rankings for the Global Poker Index Player of the Year are very different from those for CardPlayer. Many of the High Roller tournaments do not get points because of the GPI requirements for qualification. With their greatest thirteen point performances, other players now move up the leaderboard.

By using this standard, Adam Hendrix has obscured the GPI POY. One of his worse performances was followed by his 61st-place result at the World Poker Tour Five Diamond World Poker Classic in October, which is what propelled him to the top and into the lead. Hendrix has 3513.87 points going into the closing weeks of 2022, but the wolves are approaching the door.

Ausmus is one of those wolves. Since winning the 2022 Poker Masters, Ausmus hasn’t added any more points to his total. With his 3482.2 points, Ausmus falls short of Hendrix and would need a spectacular finish to get any further points. To compete against Hendrix, Ausmus will need to win another High Roller tournament or maybe make a strong showing in an event with a big field.

The third contender in the GPI race, Mike Watson, also suffered the same fate. ‘SirWatts’ seventh-place performance at the £10,000 European Poker Tour High Roller tournament got him some points, but he also has to contend with the unpleasant truth that he must compete fiercely in another tournament like Ausmus to take the position of his lowest entry. Watson just just outscores the person in fourth place with 3416.45 points.
