GPI: Phenomenal rise of Phil Gruissem in the ranking
The German poker player, Phillip Gruissem, has just won four places and occupies from now on the second position of the global ranking Global Poker Index (GPI). This spectacular progress is due to his performance at the Guangdong Asia Millions, a deepstack tournament which was held in Macao, on last week. As a reminder, the German reached the bronze place during this Hold'em No Limit tournament. The two achievements that he realized in the month of April, including a victory at the $ AUD 50,000 No Limit High Roller of the World Series Of Poker Asia Pacific (WSOP APAC) and a title at the Caesars Cup Invitational, have also been taken in account, which allowed him to climb the podium. Phil Gruissem has thus discharged Negreanu, who had just occupied this place. The Canadian is in the third position. The place of global leader always returns to Jason Mercier, who has 234 points more than Gruissem.
This week was also favorable for Paul Volpe. He managed to reach the top 10 of the GPI. Then, he climbed five places, thanks to his exploits at the WSOP 2013 and at the European Poker Tour Grand Final of Monte-Carlo. Among the players having registered a high progress this week, there is also David Peters. From now on, he occupies the 19th position, after having won 89 places, thanks to his ability to play poker well and his four silver medals at the WSOP. It is also necessary to quote Isaac Haxton who pushed himself at the 85th position, after having occupied the 210th place of the classification. On the side of the losers, Matt Glantz, Daniel Boyaciyan, John Eames and David Williams appear on the list. They fell over 40 places.
