Deeb in pole position

One of the main ways in which the WSOPE is a contiuation of the main World Series of Poker is that the Player of the Year race ends there. 

Right now Shaun Deeb looks set to win it, with 4,334.06 points compared to his nearest rival Ben Yu with 3,746.04. Also in contention are Joe Cada and John Hennigan, to name just two. 

Of course the Player of the Year race also depends on who shows up to contend it in the first place, but right now the smart money is on Deeb. 

Will Deeb turn up and defend his lead? Let us know in the comments:

    Anyone to stack me for the No Limit King's Super High Roller ??
    Sry asking just in case ... :p
    More seriously sounds Will Deeb will defend his lead unless monster bad beat or someone lock him up in the casino's toilets ... especially since he is on a upswing tendancy lately.
    But instead i wouldn't focus on defending my lead or not , just focus on playing my best game. Why to bother with unecessary and irrelevant toughts. It's just my opinion ...
