GPI To Determine European Poker Tour Player of the Year
The European Poker Tour has released the full details on it’s new Player of the Year format and the Global Poker Index will play a key role in this year’s race.
HUGE BONUS AWAITS THE WINNER
A huge €50,000 reward awaits the Season 10 Player of the Year on the European Poker Tour. The winner will be able to use that money towards main events operated by the Rational Group including the EPT, the Latin American Poker Tour, the Asia Pacific Poker Tour and many other regional poker tours from around the world.
European Poker Tour President Edgar Stuchly: “It is only fitting that the world’s biggest and richest poker tour – the European Poker Tour – hosts the world’s most prestigious player award for the best player of the season.”
The EPT will also expand their PoY structure to include regional tours that are part of a EPT Festival – for instance Estrellas Poker Tour events during EPT Barcelona and UKIPT events at EPT London.
ENTER THE GPI
The EPT also announced that the Global Poker Index will administer the EPT Player of the Year points based on the GPI Scoring Formula stating that using the independent GPI system ensures that this valuable award is trusted and respected globally.
Players in all live EPT Festival tournaments with at least 24 players (and are open events) will qualify for PoY points. Events such as invitationals and events with restricted entry requirements will be excluded.
Who will replace Jan Bendik as EPT Player of the Year? We’ll have to wait until the spring when the final card is dealt at the EPT Grand Final in Monte Carlo to find out!
