The European Poker Tour, which is the world’s richest and most popular poker tour recently announced that it will introduce three new Player of the Year leader boards for the duration of Season 11. These three leader boards will use the Global Poker Index (GPI) formula for poker rankings. GPI is recognised as the world’s leading poker ranking authority.

Since the first season of the EPT, the tour has witnessed extraordinary growth and now encompasses events with a buy-in of just $100 all the way up to €100,000. Given the huge breadth of tournaments that are available to players, there will be three tiers of the Player of the Year contest in Season 11:

•                  EPT11 Player of the Year Gold

Includes all open events

•                  EPT11 Player of the Year Silver

Includes all open events with buy-in of US $4,000 and below

•                  EPT11 Player of the Year Bronze

Includes all open events with buy-in of US $600 and lower

It is expected that the winner of the Gold tier will be the player with the best results in EPT Main Events and High-Roller events, the winner of the Silver tier will likely be a player very successful at large side events, and the winner of the Bronze tier is likely to be a player who was successful at smaller side events.  Each winner will receive a customised trophy in recognition of their achievement.

“The European Poker Tour caters to an incredible spectrum of players of all skill levels and bankrolls, and we believe the Player of the Year should reflect that,” said Edgar Stuchly, President of the European Poker Tour. “Each stop of the EPT is a huge poker festival and this change allows us to recognise this diversity.”

“We are pleased to continue our relationship with the EPT,” said Alexandre Dreyfus, President of GPI. “I'm happy that the EPT and Global Poker Index continue to work together to establish industry standards. We share a vision and commitment to promote poker as a global and unified sport to a mainstream audience.”
