The 2024 World Series of Poker is in full swing at the Horseshoe and Paris Las Vegas, with 17 PGT-qualifying events concluding as part of the 2024 PGT season. With the completion of the $50,000 Poker Players Championship this week, a new number one has emerged on the PGT leaderboard as Daniel Negreanu has propelled his way to the top after winning his seventh WSOP bracelet.

Negreanu has amassed 1,645 PGT points from his 14 cashes and two victories, amounting to $2,004,231 in 2024 PGT earnings. Negreanu's first victory of the season came in the PGT PLO Series, where he won Event #3: $5,100 Pot-Limit Omaha for $147,500. His most recent victory was in WSOP Event #58: $50,000 Poker Players Championship for $1,178,703, where it was his first WSOP bracelet in roughly 3,900 days following his October 2013 win in the WSOP Europe €25,000 No-Limit Hold'em High Roller. At the 2024 WSOP, Negreanu has amassed 749 PGT points from three PGT-qualifying cashes.

Jeremy Ausmus has cashed four times in PGT-qualifying events at the 2024 WSOP and has picked up 858 PGT points. He now moves into second on the PGT leaderboard with 1,368 PGT points. Ausmus has 14 cashes for the 2024 PGT season and $3,403,782 in PGT earnings. David Coleman, Dylan Weisman, and Aram Zobian have had quiet series relative to PGT events as they slip to third, fourth, and fifth overall, respectively.

Chris Hunichen has emerged as the biggest winner at the WSOP, having cashed twice for 1,050 PGT points. He now sits sixth on the PGT leaderboard with $5,235,701 in PGT earnings at the WSOP. Chance Kornuth hasn't secured a victory yet, but has positioned himself nicely entering the back half of the 2024 PGT season with four cashes for 1,041 PGT points. Nearly assured of a seat in the PGT Championship $1,000,000 freeroll, Kornuth still has plenty of opportunities to increase his PGT points total at the 2024 WSOP.

Nick Schulman won the $100,000 No-Limit Hold'em High Roller and claimed three other cashes to add 815 PGT points to his season total. He now sits eighth on the PGT leaderboard with 1,035 PGT points, just ahead of Viktor Blom with 1,000 PGT points. Blom has cashed three times in PGT-qualifying events at the WSOP for $2,291,709 in PGT earnings. 

Other big movers into the Top 40 on the PGT leaderboard courtesy of strong WSOP performances include Sergio Aido (11th - 888 PGT points), Santhosh Suvarna (12th - 847 PGT points), Michael Rocco (13th - 750 PGT points), Phil Ivey (18th - 706 PGT points), Brek Schutten (19th - 700 PGT points), Calvin Anderson (23rd - 672 PGT points), Frank Funaro (25th - 645 PGT points), and Bryce Yockey (28th - 632 PGT points).
