Posted by Steve Ruddock on Jul 17, 2011 Posted in Poker News | No Comments »

The Epic Poker League is not only interested in revolutionizing live poker tournaments, since with the creation of the Global Poker Index (GPI) it appears they are also interested in revolutionizing live poker tournament rankings!

The GPI is a rankings system of live tournament results over a 36-month period that factors in Buy-in, finishing position, and also how recent the result occurred to determine who the top 300 poker players in the world are. For a complete look at the metrics used by the GPI you can head over to their website.

Leading the way in the inaugural rankings is Team PokerStars Pro Jason Mercier, and looking at the entire list it becomes readily apparent that the GPI will likely be the model for most ranking systems in the future.

Here is a look at the top 25 players for the first ever GPI Rankings:

1. Jason Mercier — 2459.89 points
