WeiKai Chang Wins World Poker Tour Bay 101 Shooting Star
Third-Place Finisher Paul Volpe Takes The Lead In Player Of The Year Race
WeiKai Chang has emerged victorious in the 2013 World Poker Tour Bay 101 Shooting Star, topping the largest field in the event’s history to win $1,138,350 and 1,680 Card Player Player of the Year points. As a result, Chang now sits in eighth place in the POY standings.
A total of 643 entries were made in this year’s event, building a prizepool of $4,597,450. After four days of play, the huge field was whittled down to a final table of six. Just over a week after entering the WPT L.A. Poker Classic final table with the chip lead Paul Volpe found himself in the same position. Volpe finished runner-up at the LAPC, and eventually busted from this event in third. As a result of his impressive back-to-back performance, Volpe has overtaken the lead in the POY race with 2,870 total points and year-to-date earnings of $1,086,780.
Former WPT champion Erik Seidel finished fourth for $295,590. This was Seidel’s second final table of the year, and as a result he’s climbed to 25th place in the POY race.
Here is a look at the payouts and POY points awarded at this final table:
