The biggest and most exciting moment of the APT Poker Finale 2015 will undoubtedly be the crowning of the 2015 APT Player of the Year. Triple-crown champion Sam Razavi from England currently leads the race and is looking to bag his fourth in a row, however Japan’s Iori Yogo is gunning for the title and is currently behind Razavi in points by a small margin with 3rd place still up for grabs. This finale will certainly be filled with lots of fireworks as many will be holding up trophies to celebrate and end another poker action packed APT year.
