While catching up on the poker news, I ran across mention of Jason Mercier leading the Global Poker Index (GPI), and he has surpassed Erik Seidel with the most weeks with the top GPI rating.
“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. Jason Mercier is on top for the fifth straight week and in the process, passed Erik Seidel for the most overall weeks at No. 1. For a look at the entire list of 300, visit the official GPI website.
I had never heard of the Global Poker Index, so looked it up. No wonder…Related to Epic Poker, brainchild of Annie Duke and friends.
