Retro World Series players can earn points in each tournament they play, including satellite tournaments. The player with the most points after all tournaments will be the Player of the Year of the Retro World Series. The Player of the Year will be awarded a trophy and a cash prize. One dollar from every entry fee in the Retro World Series main event goes into the Player of the Year prize pool. For example, if 128 players enter each of the 19 tournaments at the 2016 Retro World Series main event, the prize pool would be $2,432 ($1 x 19 events x 128 entrants each = $2,432).
