The star-studded event featured prominent players including , Jeremy Ausmus, Ben Lamb and Laszlo Bujtas.

 

Arieh ended the race in seventh place, giving Hellmuth a chance to overtake him in the standings, but only if Hellmuth were to win the championship. It’s a pity that the championship of this game was taken by Jeremy Ausmus.

Hellmuth has one last chance at this point, and if he can finish first or runner-up in Event #88: 8-Handed No Limit Hold’em, this year’s Player of the Year title will be his. It’s a pity that Hellmuth only got 62nd in the end. And just like that, the title of Player of the Year went to Arieh.

Hellmuth, however, is still very personable. He tweeted his congratulations to Arieh for winning the Poker Player of the Year and said that he was very willing to lose to him. But then Hellmuth also expressed his frustration, saying that this is the fourth time he has finished second in the Players of the Year standings, and it is inevitable that he will feel a little underwhelmed.
