The European Poker Tour Season 10 Player of the Year race was a heated affair between Ole Schemion, Vanessa Selbst, and Thomas Muhlocker, but that changed last weekend in Sanremo when Schemion walked away with the €10,000 High Roller title. The win gave him a seemingly insurmountable lead (he has 1,026 pts, which us 263 ahead of Muhlocker and 283 over Selbst), which means he will be the EPT10 POY barring some miracle performances here in Monte Carlo.
That said, we've seen some memorable performance already this season from both Schemion and Selbst. Most notably, they are the only two players to cash in all three cornerstone events at the 2014 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure. If you recall, Schemion took seventh in the PCA $100K Super High Roller for $277,080; 144th in the Main Event for $17,600; and seventh in the PCA $25,000 High Roller for $216,040. As for Selbst, she placed third in the PCA $100K SHR for $760,640; 42nd in the Main Event for $32,000; and third in the $25,000 High Roller (the same event she won the year before for $1,424,420) for $607,580.
As if that wasn't impressive enough, Schemion actually did it at Barcelona too at the start of the season. It was there that he took sixth in the €50,000 Super High Roller for €159,200; 123rd in the €5,000 Main Event for €10,000l and sixth in the €10,000 High Roller Reentry for €90,700.
