GPI To Become Official Ranking System For Two of Europe’s Leading Poker Rooms
London, England (March 11, 2014) – The Global Poker Index is proud to announce that it will become the official ranking system for two of Europe’s most prestigious poker rooms, the Aviation Club de France in Paris and Casino Barcelona, in Spain.
In conjunction with the GPI’s long-term strategy to continue to be the Poker Ranking Authority and following the GPI’s historic agreement to determine the European Poker Tour’s Player of the Year, the ACF and Casino Barcelona have signed on in an effort to standardize leaderboards and rankings at a club/casino level.
The unique GPI Formula will allow local players to accumulate points in all regular events as well as earn precious GPI Points for each of the club’s signature festivals including the WPT Grand Prix de Paris, EPT Barcelona, the Euro Finals of Poker, the Paris Open of Poker and the Estrellas Poker Tour.
This is the next step in the Global Poker Index’s long-term strategy. More clubs, casinos and tours are expected to join in the coming months.
The goal is for every poker player, wherever they are in the world, to have an opportunity to be ranked on the Global Poker Index. With our 2014 GPI Formula changes now including most live poker tournaments played in anywhere in the world, the goal is to have All Players – All In.
“Having leading European poker rooms like the Aviation Club de France and Casino Barcelona joining our initiatives proves that we are continuing to make our mark in the poker world,” said Global Poker Index CEO Alexandre Dreyfus. “Our organization continues to grow and we’re elated to know that we continue to reach a broader audience.”
