GPL Season in Full Swing- Hong Kong Stars Start Hot

GPL Teams

Last week, the Global Poker League (GPL) had a successful and exciting start to their first ever regular season. The online matches were quick, easy to follow, and fun to watch as they happened live on GPL.TV and Twitch.

The Hong Kong Stars, managed by Team PokerStars pro Celina Lin (pictured below), are off to a great start and currently sit atop the Eurasia Conference. The Stars earned 18 of a possible 23 points during the first week of play.

On the other side of the league, The New York Rounders earned 16 points, good for first place in the Americas Conference. Ten of those 16 points were earned by Jason Wheeler, who won a 6-max match and finished 3rd in another.
