WSOP PLAYER OF THE YEAR PRESENTED BY KING’S CASINO ROZVADOV

The World Series of Poker is proud to offer over $20,000 worth of prizes for this year's Player of the Year competition.

The Player of the Year race will include results from all open bracelet events in 2017, including 71 events in Las Vegas and another 11 at WSOP Europe in Rozvadov, Czech Republic. The player who sits at the top of the leaderboard after the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas will receive a free buy into the €10,000 Main Event at WSOPE.

The 2017 WSOP Player of the Year will then receive a free entry into the $10,000 WSOP Main Event in 2018.

Only open events qualify, so Ladies, Casino Employees, Seniors, Super Seniors and Global Casino Championship do not count in Player of the Year standings.
