Up-and-down movement of the ranking after the EPT Grand Final - GPI
The result from the freshly-concluded European Poker Tour Grand Final Monte-Carlo has strongly influenced the Global Poker Index (GPI) this week. While Scott Seiver remains on the drivers seat of the GPIs Top 300 live poker tournament players for over three weeks now, the rest of the pack has undergone significant change. Ole Schemion jumped up to 2nd position following his 6th-place finish in the Main Event. Dan Smith, thanks to his 5K Midnight Hyperturbo win and a 8th-place finish in the 25,000 High Roller, completes the podium. USAs Dan Smith has gained 17 spots to secure 3rd position after leading the board for 17 weeks. The Top 10 includes Davidi Kitai (4th, -2), Byron Kaverman (5th, -1), Jason Mercier (6th, -1), Stephen Chidwick (7th), Bryn Kenney (8 th, -2), Sorel Mizzi (9th) and Pratyush Buddiga (10 th, -2). By sealing the EPT Grand Final Main Events win, Adrian Mateos jumped from 58th to to land 27th in the overall GPI rankings.
This week, Dzmitry Urbanovich secures the lead in the GPI Player of the Year rankings thanks to three different ITM finishes in Monaco: 2nd-place in the Super High Roller, 40th-place in the Main Event, and 3rd in the 10 K NLH 6-Max Turbo. Scott Seiver is ranked 2nd in the current POY race (+2), a promising position that is owed to a Side Event win in Monaco, along with two final-table finishes, namely in the 100K and 50K buy-in Super High Rollers. Recall that Seiver finished 20th in the Grand Fanals 25K High Roller. He is followed by Ivan Luca (3rd, -1), Connor Drinan (4th, +1), Joe Kuether (5th, -2), Steve O'Dwyer (6th, +3), Nicholas Petrangelo (7th, -1), Ramin Hajiyev (8th, +4) and Vladimir Dobrovolskiy (9th, -2). Atanas Kavrakov completes the poker Player Of the Years Top 10 by jumping over 4 spots.
