That's what I'm wondering... I think if Mizarchi wins the Main Event.. he should be PotY. I don't like the idea of co-PotY's personally.
I think they should look at it like this:
First, who has the most points? (Obviously)
Mizarchi and Kassela would tie for 290 pts.
Second, who won more bracelets this year?
Mizarchi and Kassela would tie for 2 bracelets a piece
Third, who won more money this year?
Mizarchi would have won a considerable more amount of money than Kassela.. therefore he shold get it.
That's just my opinion, though. In poker, if two players have the same winning hand, they go with the higher kicker... so they should do that with the PotY as well.
