The European Poker Tour Season 10 Player of the Year race is on, and as we've mentioned before it was a heated affair between current leader Ole Schemion and Team PokerStars Pro Vanessa Selbst. However, that race may over as Schemion took down the the EPT10 Sanremo €10,000 High Roller earlier today. Once that win is reflected on the leaderboard, the 21-year-old German may be too far out in front for anyone to catch, but who knows what will happen in Monte Carlo.
As you know players have been accumulating points in all events throughout Season 10, regardless of the buy-in level. In addition, all of the Festival Events (Estrellas, UKIPT, Eureka, FPS, IPT) that combine with an EPT tour stop have been eligible for Player of the Year points. The winner of this season’s award will walk away with €50,000 in Main Event buy-ins, good for any PokerStars or Full Tilt sponsored event.
