Dan Smith: His lead at the head of the GPI threatened

Despite the holding of many poker tournaments all along the month of February and since the beginning of the year 2013, the player No. 1 of the Global Poker Index (GPI) seems to be difficult to dethrone. Indeed, last week's ranking confirms that Dan Smith is still the best player in tournament of the moment, placing him for the sixteenth consecutive week at the top of this ranking of the top 300 poker players at the moment. Third after Jason Mercier (36 weeks) and Elky (19 weeks), Smith surpassed now Eric Seidel a week for the record of the number of weeks as leader of this ranking.

The latest results of Dan Smith date yet for some time, but it does not stop to let him keep the top spot, which could penalize him for the coming week. Recent poker tournaments that were played around the world indeed nibbled the advance of this GPI elite. At his heels, the German Marvin Rettenmaier who continues to chain good performance, is the main rival of D. Smith. On the other hand, the WPT Lucky Hearts and the recent ITM of the weeks allowed for some new recruits to enter in the top 300 of the GPI: Matt Giannetti, Philippe Boucher, Benjamin Spindler and Frederick Jensen for example enter in the rankings. In the other side, Morten Mortensen and Jean-Philippe Rohr are no longer present there.
