Global Poker Index: Colman and Smith Still in Front

Posted at 19:30 2014-12-01 by Martin Harris

Each week, the Global Poker Index releases a list of the top 300 tournament poker players in the world using a formula that takes into account a player’s results over six half-year periods. The GPI also ranks the top performers of the year over two six-month periods as calculated by the USA Today Global Poker Index point system.

For the second week running there was no movement among the top 10 in the 2014 Global Poker Index Player of the Year race, with Daniel Colman retaining the top spot for the fourth straight week.

Next week will certainly see more action in the standings, however, when 2013 GPI Player of the Year Ole Schemion picks up points for his exploits at the 2014 Master Classics of Poker at Holland Casino. Schemion has already finished second in the MCOP High Roller and sits among the current chip leaders in the Main Event.

Looking further down the POY standings, three players made decent-sized leaps to move up into the top 50 — Paul Volpe (from No. 63 to No. 41), Max Silver (from No. 78 to No. 48), and Dylan Wilkerson (from No. 88 to No. 49).

A quiet week for tournament poker also meant no changes among the top 10 in the overall GPI rankings this week, with Dan Smith now having been the top-ranked player in the world for 14 straight weeks.
