Dan Zack Is WSOP 2022 Player of the Year


Poker pro Dan Zack has been named as the World Series of Poker (WSOP) 2022 Player of the Year (POY). For those who don’t know, this pro was a consistent WSOP POY since 2017. This year too, Zack was leading the leaderboard race and kept his dominance throughout. Zack won the WSOP 2022 POY race with 4,530 points in his kitty. Daniel Weinman who was second in the race could not beat Zack and ultimately took the runner-up position at the WSOP 2022 POY leaderboard.

WSOP 2021 Main Event champ Koray Aldemir is placed third with 3,111 points. Five-time WSOP bracelet winner Shaun Deeb took the fourth spot with 2,960 points. David Peters who shot to fame in WSOP 2022 for delivering a soul crushing bad beat to Daniel Negreanu took the fifth spot with 2,785 points. These were the top five players on the WSOP 2022 POY leaderboard. 

Zack added two more gold bracelets to his tally from the 2022 edition of the WSOP. This high stakes pro was among the top performers and the POY title has only cemented his position in the global poker arena. The New Jersey native crushed it big time at the Live at the Bike poker games before making a splash at the WSOP. Zack has 14 other cashes in WSOP bracelet events apart from two final table appearances.

Most people would like to know what this pro said about winning the WSOp 2022 POY title. So here’s what Zack said, “It means a lot, I set a goal three years ago that I really wanted to try to win it before I left poker, and this is the third series I’ve tried.” 

Many want to know what Zack meant when he said ‘before I leave poker.’ The newly crowned POY winner revealed that he doesn’t see himself grinding at the WSOP for many years to come and that he plans to get married next year and wants to become a father in the coming future. This only hints at the fact that Zack won’t be playing on a full-time basis.
