The Player of the Year race for year 2021 is very much on still.The World Series of Poker main event may have come and gone, though there is still plenty of poker left to be played at the Rio.

Josh Arieh and Phil Hellmuth are battling it out at the top of the WSOP POY leaderboard as we head into the last weekend of the event.

There is still plenty of poker left to be played, however, and Hellmuth (or somebody else) could still catch Arieh, who is currently sitting in first place.

The winner of the WSOP POY will receive $15,000, while second receives $7,500 and third receives $2,500.

The side bets are where the real action is, however, and there are usually enormous sums of money wagered in WSOP side bets between the players.


Here is the top five of the WSOP POY leaderboard as of this moment:

1. Josh Arieh, 3,639.34
2. Phil Hellmuth, 3,068.20
3. Dylan Linde, 2,976.62
4. Koray Aldemir, 2,911.73
5. Scott Ball, 2,907.94


Not including the events that are already in progress, there are five WSOP bracelet events remaining on the schedule, including:

"The Closer"
$100k High Roller
$50k High Roller
Super Turbo No Limit Hold'em
$5k 8-Handed NLHE

The $5k 8-handed event is the last bracelet event on the schedule, as it gets underway at 12 pm on Monday afternoon and lasts for two days.


A number of players could still win the WSOP POY title, and this should make for an interesting weekend of poker.
