On top of the life-changing money at stake this weekend, this is the last event of the year for players to collect Player of the Year points. It's been a tight race for months and there are still quite a few players in the hunt. The POY champ will earn a $10,000 package to play in Main Events next season as well as hotel accommodations at six stops. Ossama Estafanous extended his point lead with a final table appearance in Daytona Beach, Florida a few weeks ago but there are a number of players within reach of him for the POY honors.
