Jeffrey Rossiter Climbs to Number One in the Australian GPI Rankings

The Global Poker Index (GPI) is the most accurate way of ranking tournament poker players and the most popular too. The GPI uses a unique algorithm that allocated points based on finishing position and field size in tournaments commanding a buy-in of $1,000 or more.
Unlike other ranking systems, the GPI gives more credit to recent results and less to historical results which many argue gives the poker community a better insight into who the best players are right now.
Australia’s number one ranked live poker tournament player is currently Jeffrey Rossiter who has 1,533.96 points, which put him ever-so-slightly in front of Jonathan Karamalikis on 1,522.66! The closeness of these two poker Goliath’s should make for an exciting 2013 in the Australian GPI rankings.
Finishing out the latest top 10 are Daniel Neilson; Grant Levy; Tam Truong; Aaron Lim; Brendon Rubie; former World Series of Poker Main Event champion Joe Hachem; Oliver Speidel and recently signed IveyPoker Pro Jackqueline Glazier.
With the ANZPT Perth festival under way and the inaugural World Series of Poker Asia Pacific just around the corner there will be plenty of opportunity for Australian players to pick up some GPI points.
