The Global Poker Player of the Year races remain tight

Time’s running out for players to make their final push to the top of the leaderboards

Only two weeks are left, but the poker world still wonders who will take home the 2023 Global Poker Index Player of the Year awards. Bin Weng hopes to remain on top for the overall Player of the Year, while Cherish Andrews is looking to keep her lead to win her second Female Player of the Year.

Weng moved to the top of the GPI leaderboard after making three World Poker Tour (WPT) final tables in May, and he remains there, leading Jose “Nacho” Ignacio Barbero by 429.05 points. However, a few other players still have a chance to overtake Weng with a deep run at the WPT World Championship, with its $40 million in guaranteed prizes that would put them in the lead with a win. Chris Brewer has 3,760.83 points, Stephen Chidwick is just behind him with 3,744.50 points, followed by Jesse Lonis with 3,729.28 points.

Last year, Andrews moved up to number one on the GPI index’s list for top female players in December after a week where she took sixth place in the $2,500 event for $78,000 to earn 311.27 points, then finished second in the $10,000 high-roller event for another $259,000, earning her 328.17 points. The following day, she won the $1,000 event for $132,000 and 325.97 points.

Several other previous ladies Player of the Year winners are within 100 points of Andrews, including Kristen Foxen (2017 GPI Female POY), Nadya Magnus (2021 GPI Female POY) and Angela Jordison, who finished second to Andrews last year.
