More than just a jewelry piece, the ring symbolizes the Herculean efforts a player has put during a whole series and the consistent amazing performances that ensued as a result.

Rules & Conditions

Points for the USOP Player of the Series are determined by two key factors:


• The total prize pool of each qualified event.


• The corresponding buy-in category for each event


The recipient of the USOP Player of the Series accolade is the player who amasses the highest POS points throughout the tournament duration. In the event of a tie in points, a tie breaking mechanism is in place, following a specific order of priorities.


1. Most Titles: In cases of equal points, the initial tiebreaker considers the number of titles won. The player with the highest number of tournament victories during the series gains a competitive edge.


2. Most Final Tables: If a tie persists after factoring in titles, the tiebreaker shifts to the number of final tables reached. Final tables represent the conclusive phase of a poker tournament where a select few compete for top positions. This applies only to results that qualify for points.


3. Most In The Points: If a tie persists, the next tiebreaker assesses the frequency with which a player finished "in the points." This involves securing a position that entitles them to a portion of the prize pool, going beyond just making the final table.


USOP reserves the right to include other tie breaking mechanisms should the stated ones not be sufficient at its discretion. USOP will endeavor to administrate tie breakers in a fair and reasonable manner. USOP’s decision is final.


To accumulate points according to the POS points schedule, an event must attract a minimum of 10 entries, and players must finish "In The Money" (ITM).


For specialized events like Heads Up, where, for example, 4 players are eliminated from the last 8, points are averaged based on the total of 5th to 8th place points.


In events such as a Tag Team event, both players receive place points corresponding to their shared placement.


Invitational events and those with restrictions based on factors such as sex, age, or other specific criteria are not considered eligible events and do not contribute to POS Points.
