We’re either “at,” “around,” “or about” the halfway point, so let’s take a look at 2011 WSOP Player of the Year standings.
Coming into the weekend, John Juanda leads everyone with 336 points. Juanda has one win ($10k 2-7 Lowball) and another final table (sixth in the $2,500 8-Game Mix). He’s closely followed by Amir Lehavot with 330 points. Lehavot has a win in the $10k PLH event and a 21st in the $1,500 WSOP Shoot-Out.
Not far behind them are Sean Getzwiller (325), Steven Landfish (317.70), Viacheslav Zhukov (315.00), Jake Cody (313.13), Daniel Idema (309.50), and Bertrand ‘ElkY’ Grospellier (299.25).
In all, there are 15 people within 100 points of the lead, so this is still up in the air. It feels like the clubhouse leader, Juanda, would have the edge given his ability to go deep in more than just hold’em events, but like Asia’s “Only Time Will Tell,” only time will tell.
