Last week Rakeback.com reported the Global Poker League (GPL) named Chris Moneymaker manager of The Las Vegas Moneymakers. This week, the rest of the teams and managers were announced. The 12 teams will compete in two conferences, The Americas Conference and The Eurasia Conference.
Mediarex Sports & Entertainment, chief executive officer Alex Dreyfus had this to say… "Today is an exciting day in the Global Poker League history, the confirmation of our team managers is a crucial step towards our goal. We've secured an incredible amount of talented leaders to represent our 12 franchise teams as well as strong intent from some of the world's best poker players to make themselves draft able on February 25. We're looking forward to what the next few months and the inaugural season of the GPL will bring for fans across the globe."
Team managers will draft their respective teams February 25th in Los Angeles, California before the American Poker Awards festivities. Each team will draft 3 players, then add 2 more as “wild card” selections.
Rakeback.com will continue to follow the new Global Poker League and report any developments.
