In all, Ramin Hajiyev reached four In The Money places at the 2015 PCA. Jonathan Karamalikis finds himself in second position of the POY race. He has also earned four cashes at the PCA. Nicholas Petrangelo, winner of the $ 5,300 Turbo 8-Handed NLHE event and finalist in the $ 25,000 High Roller, secures the third position.
