Winter’s two results at the 2022 Poker Masters solidified his spot in sixth place on the PGT leaderboard, but another big mover was Jason Koon. Koon cashed five times at Triton Mediterranean and followed that with two cashes and the Event #10: $50,000 No-Limit Hold’em victory for $666,000.

Nick Schulman and Erik Seidel finished third and fourth respectively on the Poker Masters leaderboard, and the PGT points they accrued helped to move them closer to the top 21. Both players are within reaching distance of securing a seat in the season-ending PGT Championship.

Stephen Chidwick and Phil Ivey Hold Top Spots on PGT Leaderboard

Having each held the top spot on the PGT leaderboard over the past few months, Stephen Chidwick is now back on top following the completion of the Poker Masters.

At Triton Mediterranean, both Chidwick and Ivey cashed two times each as Ivey surged ahead with his fourth-place finish in Event #12: $50,000 Short Deck. When Chidwick finished in 11th place in Event #2: $10,000 No-Limit Hold’em at the Poker Masters, he retook the lead over Ivey heading into October.
