The Global Poker Index - 2016 Rankings


The Global Poker Index (GPI) was founded by Alex Dreyfus in 2011.

Since then, they’ve become considered the world’s foremost “live tournament poker” player ranking authority. The GPI rankings will be used later this month during the Global Poker League player draft.

The GPI assesses a players’ performance over a three-year period. Tournament field size, buy-in, and recent tournament cashes are the main factors used to calculate the rankings of each player.

The index currently ranks over 300,000 poker players around the world. The GPI rankings are updated on a weekly basis.

Every year, the player atop the leaderboard is crowned Player of the Year. Last year, it was Byron Kaverman winning 2015 GPI Player of the Year honors.
