Global Poker Index Update

The Global Poker Index (GPI) was born when the Epic Poker League (EPL) was introduced, just last year.

After the demise of the EPL, many people assumed the GPI would follow suit, but it has been snapped up by former Chilipoker founder, Alexandre Dreyfus, and been given a great refurbishment.

‘Mad’ Marvin Rettenmaier recently made history by becoming the first ever player to win back-to-back World Poker Tour (WPT) titles, after taking down the WPT Merit Cyprus Classic for $287,784. 

That win moved Rettenmaier into the top spot of the GPI Player of the Year (POY) race for the first time in his career. But that reign was only to last one week, when Dan Smith took down the €50,000 Super High Roller at EPT9 Barcelona for over €900,000.

Smith’s move from third to first was the only movement in the top ten this week, but with EPT9 Barcelona in full swing, and WPT Paris and Malta just around the corner, anything could happen.

Jason Mercier still leads the overall GPI Top 300 rankings; Bertrand “ElkY” Grospellier is trailing in second, while Dan Smith (3rd), Marvin Rettenmaier (4th), and Steve O’Dwyer (5th) make up the top five positions. 

The newly revised GPI rankings now show the top rated countries and top rated players in each country. 

As it stands the United States of America possess more players in the top 300 than any other country with 165 players, England are a distant second, with just 20, and France comes in third place with 17 players.
