The votes are in, and congratulations to Sorel Mizzi for taking the most wins in 2010 tournament play. Mizzi won more than $3,507,000 in live tournament play, with 1,895,430 in total winnings for 2010. He also has grossed $3,099,557 in online tournaments.

Aside from the dollar signs, Mizzi won the esteemed BLUFF Magazine Player of the Year award. This is an honor from the top industry magazine which named him ‘Best Tournament Poker Player of 2010’.  The 24-year old took it in stride and hopes to do as well in 2011. Sorel Mizzi led his competitors for the title  with over 500 points ahead of the 2nd place finisher, Thomas Marchese with 1,257 points. Third place was Fernando Brito, coming in with 1/060 points. Sorel outranked both with 1,777 points for the year.

Bluff Magazine doesn’t just look at the number of chips and dollar signs to determine the winner. Their methodology looks at scoring for shootouts, short-handed and heads-up tournaments. Players can get points for participating in WSOP, the World Poker Tour, European Poker Tour, Aussie Millions and other select events.

The formula to determine the champion consists of the buy-in amount, number of entries and player’s finishing position (must cash-out). Then they figure out the points by multiplying point factors from these criteria.
Sorel got paid in 26 tournaments, finishing 3rd in the Aussie Millions Main Event with a scoop of $659,917. Continuing his streak over the next months, he made 4 final tables winning three of them.
