Ole Schemion at the top of the leaderboard, Negreanu 3rd - GPI
Every week, the Global Poker Index (GPI) publishes an up-to-date list of the Top 300 best poker players in the world. The launching of the World Series of Poker (WSOP) has strongly influenced the ranking for two weeks now. For instance, Vanessa Selbst is now ranked second on the list following her victory in the $ 25,000 Mixed-Max Event. Daniel Negreanu jumps up to number 3 thanks to his runner-up place in the $ 10,000 No-Limit 2-7 Draw Lowball heads-up against Paul Volpe. Thus Negreanu has won seven places in the GPI Top 300 thanks to his second place in this poker tournament. As for Paul Volpe, thanks to his victory (his first bracelet) in the WSOP 2014 $ 10,000 Deuce-to-seven No-Limit Lowball, he now ranks 9th, that is, 17 places won. The German Ole Schemion remains the headliner in the list for some weeks now. Scott Seiver secures fourth, followed by Byron Kaveman (5th), Philipp Gruissem (6th), Jason Mercier (7th) and Stephen Chidwick (8th). Jonathan Duhamel completes the Top 10 Players of the Week.
Paul Tedschi accomplishes the best jump up of the week with 290 places won; he now ranks 196th. Taylor Paul, Dylan Linde and Noah Bronstein have also recorded a significant move; each one of them won more than 200 places thanks to their respective win in the WSOP 2014 final table. Richard Lyndaker is, however, the biggest drop of the week as he now ranks back to 291st, that is, 93 places lost in one week. Other players like Ben Palmer, Timothy Reilly, Blake Bohn and Roberto Romanello are also among the ones who drop the most on the list.
