So if they don't revamp POY structure is the strategy next year to register for everything then just start blind shoving once he's in the money?

Min cashes for the win.

My proposal for @WSOP POY 2018:
http://fullcontactpo...-wsop-poy-2018/

My Proposal for WSOP POY 2018
I have some ideas that I think would improve the WSOP POY system that would give the player who had the best series the best chance to win the award:

1. Limit Cashes to the best 8- To win player of the year you are going to have to play 20+ tournaments so 8 cashes with 15% of the field getting paid is more than reasonable. Capping the number of cashes that count ensures that the cashes being used are all quality scores and also limits the advantage players who double dip in tournaments and play the full schedule have. That’s good for the average Joe. If he strings together some big scores in the smaller events, that accomplishment isn’t negated by a ton of insignificant min cashes that are inevitable for players playing 50+ events. If you play 50 events, you rate to cash about 10 times even in a bad year.

2. Min Cash to Win ratio at 8-1- In a 600 player field, the current system rewarded the winner the equivalent of 4 min cashes. That’s not a good ratio. A ratio closer to 8-1 seems a lot more fair. When creating the formula you can embed this once you have decided what a win is worth. If a win is worth 100 points, a min cash could be something like 12 points sliding up as you progress to the final table where you can create another formula that looks something like:

Win 100 points

2nd 75% of 1st place points

3rd 65% of 1st place points

4th 60% and so on….

3. Value the $10ks buy in events higher- It is much tougher to cash in a 100 player field in a $10k event than it is to cash in a large field event that pays hundreds of spots. It takes roughly 3 times more play, the structures are slower on day two, and you are also fighting against top notch competition in the Championship events when you near the bubble. It often takes 3-4 hours to go from 23 to 20 players. These events should be special since the strength of field on average is going to be special.

4. Field Size Cap of 8000- The outlier in the 2017 system is definitely the Colossus which has multiple re-entries that bloats the field size as high as 20,000. A win in this event should absolutely be weighted heavily, but the min cash shouldn’t be given much weight. By capping the field size it becomes less distorted within the system.

5. Must Win a Bracelet- This one might be controversial, but I like it. We have never had a POY winner that didn’t win a bracelet, but that is very possible this year. I don’t think it’s unreasonable to require at least one win to be rewarded POY. In fact I think it adds a cool dynamic to the race. You may have a points leader at the top without a bracelet who in the homestretch needs that win to win the title. Yes, I’m aware that this would exclude me from contention in the 2017 race, but it isn’t about me, it’s about a system that absolutely guarantees the ultimate winner will be deserving.

By implementing these five adjustments the award will maintain it’s prestige for years to come. Even if just 2-3 of these ideas were implemented, I would see that as a positive shift in the right direction.

wtg and congrats to our Gibler, he finally got his triple crown and WSOP bracelet


Harrison Gimbel Completes Triple Crown with First WSOP Bracelet

Posted 1 hour 1 minute ago AnTh0nyWTF • Level 32: 80,000-160,000, 20,000 ante

a sick cooler ended it all. Kornuth ran pocket tens into Gimbel's pocket queens and Gimbel had Kornuth out chipped by a single ante to claim the win.



Also to Daniel for another deep run keep it up guys

I love the game of poker for the competition, the psychology, the never-ending quest to improve, the advanced and sometimes minute complexities not everyone sees when they play, and the enjoyment of succeeding after giving all your energy to reach a goal that may at first seem unattainable but that you find a way to make it possible.

Dear ESPN,

Turn up the volume on the table, and get rid of some of the commentators. We don't need 30 people in the booth all talking over each other.

DN is out.

No Hellmuth, No DN, No Ivey, and a pretty horrible production by ESPN so far.

Guess I won't be watching any poker this year.
