The 2016 APT Player of the Year race remains in its infancy, but already there is a familiar feel to proceedings, mostly due to a man who seems determined to spend the rest of his life glued to the top of the standings. Sam Razavi has accelerated to the top once again, and has already extended a 379 point lead over the highly talented APT regular Iori Yogo, in 2nd.

Nick Blackburn follows up in 3rd place after a fantastic APT Daegu, where he picked up three 1st places, a 2nd and a 4th. Blackburn certainly has some live tournament experience under his belt, having banked several five figure scores, and one six figure score in his career so far. It is still early days of course, with plenty of stops remaining on the tour – but already, the question is being asked. Who can stop Sam Razavi?

Razavi not content with topping APT POY leaderboard
While the irrepressible Sam Razavi has made an outstanding start to his latest APT POY defence, leaving competitors in his wake – he is also topping other leaderboards on a global level. The standings for the most live cashes in the world in 2016 currently show Razavi out in front on 20 cashes, with his nearest challenger sat on 17. He is a man who continues to amaze with his consistency.
