Dan Smith finishes atop the GPI World Rankings - Global Poker Index
As usual, the Global Poker Index (GPI) releases each week an up-to-date list of the top 300 poker tournament players in the world. Two major tournaments were held in Las Vegas in recent weeks, namely the World Series of Poker (WSOP) and the Bellagio Cup X. Accordingly the GPI top 300 rankings have undergone a change. Few weeks before the 2014 WSOPs Main Event in which he finished 20th place for a prize of $ 289,900, Dan Smith won the $ 100,000 Super High Roller at Bellagio Cup X by outlasting Jason Mercier, Tom Marchese and Jason Somerville. This American poker player collected over $ 2 million for his victory and now secures number one in the Global Poker Index rankings. He was 4th last week. This time, Dan Smith is well ahead of Ole Schemion, Daniel Negreanu, Byron Kaverman and Alex Bilokur. The latter is among the big movers (11spots) in this GPI race following his win in the $ 10,000 Pot Limit Holdem WSOP poker tournament.
Erik Seidel occupies the 5th place, followed by Paul Volpe, Jason Mercier, Scott Seiver and Bryn Kenney. As for Jason Mercier, he jumped over twelve spots thanks to his second place in the Super High Roller / Bellagio Cup X and his other paid places in the 2014 WSOP. Britain's Craig McCorkell is the biggest mover of the week with his 408 spots to secure 298th place on the GPI list. However, many players have deeply dropped this week, namely Connor Drinan (-120), Jose Barbero (-61), Fabian Quoss (-60), Johnny Lodden (-58), Pierre Neuville (-54), Annand Ramdin (-54) and Thomas Butzhammer (-42).
