It was another quiet week at the top of the 2015 Global Poker Index Player of the Year leaderboard where Anthony Zinno enjoyed a 14th-straight week in first position and Byron Kaverman still just one small cash away from passing him.
Two players leaped up into the POY top 10 this week, including Barry Hutter who jumped from No. 18 to No. 8 after finishing runner-up in the $25,000 buy-in ARIA High Roller XV event last Thursday, then winning the $25K ARIA High Roller XVI the next day. Hutter earned nearly $420K between those two cashes while picking up about 700 GPI points as well to help him move upward on the list.
Tom Marchese also appears in this week’s top 10 after his fourth-place finish in the latter of those high rollers at the ARIA Resort & Casino.
Things won’t be quiet this week, however, as the 2015 World Series of Poker Europe kicks off today at the Spielbank Casino in Berlin, Germany. The WSOPE schedule runs through October 24th and includes 10 gold bracelet events.
