Lisandro, Schemion and Negreanu Impress on the GPI

Daniel Negreanu talks to a fan before action begins on day 2.More Global Poker Index shifts have been taking place, but this time in the tournament GPI rankings with no surprises that Rettenmaier is still flying high at the top.

In second place Mike Watson has held on for yet another week, and what is amazing about his story is that yesterday when the GPI Player of the Year rankings were announced, Watson had taken over first place from Paul Volpe. So far Watson is making a big name for himself in the early stages of the run in for highest tournament GPI ranking and GPI player of the year. Take a look at the top 10 tournament players so far this 2013:

GPI Tournament Rankings 2013 So Far

1st – Marvin Rettenmaier 3173.85 points – No Move

2nd – Michael Watson 3045.69 points – No Move

3rd – Philipp Gruissem 2958.23 points – Moved up 3 places

4th – Bertrand Grospellier 2934.96 points – Moved down 1 place

5th – Joseph Cheong 2924.72 points – Moved up 5 places

9th – Jason Mercier 2682.86 points – No Move

10th – Michael Mizrachi 2669.60 points – Moved down 3 places

Michael Mizrachi has dropped three places making way for the new entry of Ole Schemion, who is another player that has scored highly in the GPI Player of the Year rankings reported yesterday. He has made his double upwards manoeuvres by taking down the 2013 Lebanese Poker Tour Championship. His ranking has been consistently improving after making it his third victory in just over half a year. His last points gain came from a $1,474,671 cash after winning the Partouche Poker Tour Main Event, and he also conquered the Masters Classics of Poker. Adding to this he was successful in the $25,000 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure at the beginning of the year. He made the final table, but just missed top spot by coming fourth.

The GPI tournament rankings is beginning to sound almost the same as yesterday’s GPI Player of the Year results as Daniel Negreanu can’t be mentioned enough. He deservedly won his fifth WSOP bracelet at the WSOP Asia Pacific Main Event. The “Kid Poker” has worked hard in his career, and what a finish this was for him giving him 73 points. Even so, it was Jeff Lisandro the Aussie, who was also playing in the Caesars Cup for Team Pacific Asia, who stole the limelight for the largest points gain as he cashed on two occasions in the APAC, plus he came second twice in the Aussie Millions.

Lisandro seems more comfortable playing in the big tournaments on home turf.
