Bryn Kenney had been leading the 2017 Global Poker Index Player of the Year Race for most of the first half of the year, enjoying a 21-week run at the top until Nick Petrangelo took over the lead in July, then Dario Sammartino surged ahead to claim the No. 1 spot for the last five weeks.

This week Kenney is once again the frontrunner in the POY race, having moved back up on the strength of a couple of final tables in the PokerStars Championship Barcelona series. Kenney finished seventh in the €50,000 Super High Roller won by Igor Kurganov on Monday. He followed that a couple of days later with a runner-up to Stephen Chidwick in the single-day €25,500 NL Hold'em 8-Handed Single Re-Entry event.
