WSOP Player of the Year 2009

It won't be long until we discover the 2009 WSOP Player of the Year but it seems like a "given" at this point that Jeffrey Lisandro will receive that honor.

Lisandro has won a whopping $807,521 so far during the 2009 World Series of Poker.  He's cashed out 6 times and now has three bracelets over the past month.

From Aintluck.com:

"Australian Lisandro's dark attire - he likes to don a 1930s style gangster, bowler hat and a suave black shirt - means he comes across as a bit of an enigma. There is nothing shady about his poker exploits however - Lisandro is a proven winner. Following victory in a $25,000 Limit Hold'em heads-up tournament against Poker Professor Howard Lederer, he defeated the imperious Phil Ivey at the $10,000 WSOPC heads-up event for a cool $542,360 in 2005. Lisandro combines a measured, methodical style with excellent reading abilities to give him the best chance of success. He's not just a winner - he's a convincing winner. He steamrollered through the field of the $2500 Razz tournament yesterday, holding a chip lead since Day 2. When heads-up play commenced, he held a staggering 2.1 million to 210,000 chip lead over opponent Michael Craig."
