GPI: A big change in the Top 10
As like each week, an update is brought to the ranking Global Poker Index. Poker tournament which followed themselves these last months turn upside down the ranking, both in the Top 10 and in the rest of the classification. After being at the head of the GPI during several weeks, since last week, Marvin Rettenmaier gives away the first place of the ranking to Jason Mercier who made a jump of five places. Dethroned by Dan Smith in November 2012, Jason Mercier finds again in the first place of the classification thanks to his remarkable performances in Monte-Carlo during the European Poker Tour Grand Final. In fact, the American ended the season IX of the EPT in the best ways, by winning the first edition of the 2,000 Open-Face Chinese and by finishing 7th at the Main Event. He also finished 2nd at the Super High Roller of 100,000 buy-in, but this result has not been taken in account, given the fact that the buy-in of tournaments for the GPI ranking is limited to $ 25,000.
The victory of Stephen O'Dwyer at the Main Event of the EPT Grand Final allowed him to occupy the 3rd place (+5) of the GPI, with only six points behind Marvin Rettenmaier who demoted at the 2nd place of the ranking. Mike Watson (4th), Philipp Gruissem (5th), Bryn Kenney (6th), Bertrand Grospellier (the) and David Sands (10th) are always in the Top 10, while Ole Schemion and Andrew Lichtenberger are coming in the 8th and 9th place, by totalizing up 3 and 11 places.
