Going into May South African Ronit Chamani is still in first place on the GPI Player of the Year Ladies (PoYL). If we compare the result from May with the standings one month ago, we notice some minor changes. Samantha Cohen has moved up two spots from #5 to #3 due to her results in Irish Open and FPS Main Event in Monte Carlo, where she cashed both times. Liv Boeree on the other side has dropped from #3 to #5, but after her 12th place finish in the €5,000 No Limit Hold’em event at EPT Grand Final, the arrow is pointing in the right direction.
Nancy Birnbaum, who always seems to be out there grinding the WSOP Circuits events, has moved up two spots, and is now ranked #6 on the PoYL. Victoria Coren’s historic win at EPT Sanremo immediately propelled her to #7, while Katherine Bowen’s results at the WSOP Circuit Cherokee, where she cashed in four tournaments, ensures her a position as #13.
GPI Ladies 100
If we take a look at the GPI Ladies 100, which tracks the live results over the past three years, Vanessa Selbst is still untouchable in first place. In second and third we once again find Ana Marquez and Samantha Cohen. Loni Harwood is new in fourth place, moving up two spots after her 29th finish at the WPT Championship at Borgata, where she took home $30,085.
It’s no surprise to see Victoria Coren move into the top 20 at #16. We have not seen much of Melanie Weisner the last year, and she drops down from #15 to #20.
Women’s All Time Money List
The top 20 on the Women’s All Time Money List is more or less unchanged since last month, except for Victoria Coren who moves up one place from #10 to #9 after her big win at EPT San Remo. With the first prize of €476,100 from Sanremo, Victoria Coren’s tournament winnings now exceed $2,4 millions.
