GPI standings reveal player, industry moves
Was just checking the GPI … with particular interest in the standings for American Player of the Year … you know, Election Day. Actually I was curious to see, among other things, what kind of impact a WSOP main event had on player rankings. (Greg Merson moved up.)
But what stood out to me were the poker teams … and the presence of newcomer IveyPoker.
|#16||—||Phil Ivey||Ivey Poker||713.44|
Long gone are the days of Full Tilt and PokerStars commandeering the WSOP main event final table. But will an online site bearing the name of the 11th best American this year be able to step in and successfully fill the Full Tilt void for US players?
So far #TeamIvey is batting 1.000, 1 for 1, when it comes to taking down 7-figure bracelets … and they have yet to even play the first real-money online hand! (Makes you wonder even more about that lawsuit against FTP … and tells you a little more about who’s taking what side.) Maybe I’m just a little slow to this newsbrief, but did we already know that Jen Harmon and Patrik Antonius were partnered up with Team IveyPoker?
