DSPT & GPI Enter Into Partnership for 2014 Season
London, England (February 6, 2014) – The DeepStacks Poker Tour and the Global Poker Index/The Hendon Mob have entered into an agreement that sees the Global Poker Index become the official statistics provider for the 2014 DeepStacks Poker Tour Player of the Year race. Known as the Global Poker Authority, the GPI’s 2014 scoring formula will be used to determine the DSPT PoY Winner.
The agreement also includes, amongst other things, extensive marketing initiatives, a customized version of Fantasy Poker Manager and access to several CRM solutions.
“As we continue to grow, so do our goals of further distinguishing DSPT as a leader in the poker industry,” said DeepStacks CEO Chris Torina. “GPI has proven to be the foremost authority, in among other things, tournament tracking and statistical analysis. We find this, and their global digital presence, to be very intriguing. This partnership makes complete sense.”
“We are extremely happy to be working the DeepStacks Poker Tour. The DSPT hosts events both in North America and around the world, further extending our GPI and THM brands”, said GPI and THM CEO Alexandre Dreyfus. “The DSPT features a hard-working team and we’re certain that this partnership will benefit both organizations. Best of luck to all players participating in upcoming DSPT events!”
Although the schedule for the 2014 DSPT season is set for release later this month, some events have already been announced in: Lincoln City, OR (March 22-30, 2014), Turlock, CA (April 26-May 4, 2014), Los Angeles, CA (May 23-June 1, 2014), Calgary, AB (September 20-28, 2014) and Edmonton, AB (October 4-12, 2014).
