The World Series of Poker is in full swing, which of course, has just about every possible ranked player earning Player of the Year points. Despite bricking the Series so far, Bryn Kenney still holds the leads with 2,840.97 points.

Kenney’s score remains unchanged since pre-WSOP as he has yet to cash in any bracelet events. His lead shrunk from 362.18 points to under 100 points.

Petrangelo jumped three spots from making a final table of an ARIA $50,000 High Roller and then finished 19th place in the $111,111 High Roller for One Drop.

Kaverman took 12th in the WSOP $111,111 HROD, but before that he final tabled the 2017 Super High Roller Bowl in fifth place for $1.4 million. He didn’t earn any POY points from the SHRBowl, because of the invitational nature, but his bankroll has never been better.

You can watch the complete replay of the 2017 SHR Bowl exclusively on PokerGO. He is also the subject of one the new season of Pokerography; joining Jason Koon, Liv Boeree, Johnny Chan and Mari Ho.
