Points Contenders in the Field
With just four days left in the 2016/2017 WSOP Circuit season, the time to collect points and qualify for the Global Casino Championship is quickly running out. Yesterday's results shook up the season-long leaderboard quite a bit, too.
Both Josh Mammon and Brett Bader posted results to move from the outside to the inside, supplanting James Juvancic and Neil Scott from the safe zone and moving the line to a minimum of 145 points needed to qualify. Scott is in the field this afternoon, and Juvancic will likely make an appearance, as well.
Austin Peck is just above them and right on the number, with 145 points and counting. His six-figure earnings give him the tie-breaker over most players, but a few more points would go a long way toward securing his seat. He's currently second from the bottom, while Sal DiCarlo is currently the last man in.
Joshua Lowing is also in the field, entering this tournament with 155 points. It seems likely that'll be enough to earn him a seat, but a few extra points would do wonders for his nerves down the stretch, too.
