Daniel Colman and Dan Smith dominate the rankings - Global Poker Index
As we all know, the Global Poker Index (GPI) publishes a weekly up-to-dated list of the Top 300 tournament poker players in the world, along with the GPI Player of the Year ranking. Dan Smith remains on top of the GPIs Top 300 for 17 weeks now. He is ranked ahead of Ole Schemion (3rd position), Davidi Kitai (2nd position, +1), Ami Barer (+2), Daniel Negreanu, Scott Seiver (-3), Olivier Busquet, Pratyush Buddiga (+35) and Jacob Schindler (+1) whilst Stephen Chidwick (+4) completes the Top 10. The biggest movers of this week include Buddiga who jumps up from 43rd to 8th position thanks to his $ 543,683-first-place award in the Aria $ 25,000 buy-in High Roller I poker tournament last week. Those who reach ITM places in the recently-concluded 2014 EPT Prague also see their ranking position rise up high; included among them are Thomas Butzhammer (16th), Albert Daher (31st), Omar Lakhdari (39th), Ilkin Amirov (40th), Vladimir Schemelev (95th), Vyacheslav Stoyanov (109th) and Liv Boeree (118th).
As far as the 2014 GPI Player Of the Year race is concerned, Daniel Colman still secures the drivers seat. Davidi Kitai is listed 2nd thanks to his 10th place finish in the 2014 European Poker Tour Prague Main Event, relegating Ole Schemion and Ami Barer to the 3rd and 4th position respectively. However, Ole Schemion is likely to pass ahead of Kitai next week with his freshly acquired 6th-place in the EPT Prague High Roller event. As for George Danzer, he joins the Top 10 (10th position, +4) whereas the rest of the ranking remains unchanged: Dan Smith (5th), Mustapha Kanit (6th), Jason Mercier (7th), Scott Seiver (8th) and Anatoly Filatov (9th).
