Faraz Jaka Really Wants to Be WPT POY

Watch Can David Williams take the WPT? on RawVegas.tv

With 18 remaining, Faraz Jaka reclaimed the chip lead at the WPT Championship.

Jaka, who currently holds the lead for WPT Player of the Year, has expressed behind-the-scenes how much he’d like to earn the honors, and is playing like it too. That was a really poorly constructed sentence.

While Jaka holds the chip lead with 3,117,000, he doesn’t necessarily have the title locked up yet…right BJ? A bunch of big names/waist-lines still remain. David Benyamine is second overall with 2,350,000. David Williams (above discussing if he can take down the title) is third overall with 2,072,000.

Also remaining are old-schooler Billy Baxter (1,630,000), Phil Hellmuth (1,377,000), Shawn Buchanan (1,224,000), a looking-to-make-back-to-back-WPT-Championship-final-tables Scotty Nguyen (941,000), Eric Baldwin (880,000), JJ Liu, a woman (674,000), Johnny “Cliff Josephy” Bax (458,000), Jason Lester/Al Krux (421,000), Josh Arieh (303,000), and Matt Stout (274,000).

Heather Sue Mercer was eliminated in 21st.
