Ole Schemion secures No. 1 in the GPI rankings - Global Poker Index
As usual, the Global Poker Index (GPI) releases a weekly update of the top 300 poker tournament players in the world. The top 3 in the July 21-standings remains unchanged while the rest of the classification has undergone significant changes. Dan Smith finishes atop (No.1) the 300 best poker players in the world. This American poker player is ahead of the German Ole Schemion with his 4,015.56 against 4,014.71 for Schemion. Daniel Negreanu secures third place with 3,765.82 points, followed by Byron Kaverman and his 3,547.07 points. Paul Volpe jumped up to fifth place before Erik Seidel and pushed Alex Bilokur to the seventh place (-2). Jason Mercier, Jacob Schindler (19) and Scott Seiver (-1) complete the three last seats of the Top 10.
While a great number of players step further high in the standings this week following live poker tournaments which took place in recent weeks, many are those who enter the big decliners circle. As an example, Benjamin Hamnett is the biggest mover of the week with his 139 spots won to hit the 265th place. He is also part of the players who entered the Top 300 rankings this week alongside David Diaz (270th, +93), Tony Cousineau (274th, +33) and Max Pescatori (300th, +23). The big movers of the week also see Ognjen Sekularac (145th) and Justin Young (152nd) respectively with 75 and 72 spots won. As for those who see themselves drop this week, among them are Giacomo Fundaro (155th, -25), Tyler Reiman (169th, -25), Philippe Ktorza (249th, -39), Liv Boeree (263rd, -23) and Benjamin Zamani (289th, -25).
