Posted at 12:35 2012-11-12 by Mickey Doft
Each week, the Global Poker Index releases a list of the top 300 tournament poker players in the world using a formula that takes a player's results over six half-year periods. Dan Smith is still holding down the fort at No. 1 as the tournament schedule has been relatively light. For a look at the entire list of 300, visit the official GPI website.
