GPI POTY update, The Micros are back and more

  • Lets look at the changes on the GPI. Also, this week a new episode of The Micros was released after two months. It is hilarious.

  • As the year is coming to an end, the situation on the Global Poker Index is relatively stable. For almost a third of the year Dan 'King Dan' Smith has ruled the top of the GPI and it seems that he is there to stay to claim the main prize. Also, animated online poker series The Micros is back featuring even more first-class poker players than ever before including Daniel Negreanu, Phil Galfond, Johnathan Duhamel, Liv Boeree and others.

    Ivey is back to Full Tilt Poker

    Let's kick off the news with some online poker. Phil Ivey has returned (and very successfully) to the Full Tilt Poker tables. Although, you will not find him by his ex-screenname 'Phil Ivey'. Full Tilt Poker had made an exception and allowed the poker pro to change his screenname. Some speculation in the forums suggest it is due to the fact that he is no longer a sponsored FTP pro.

    Anyway, after returning he has already knocked out $200.000 in profits in a very few poker sessions! Does Ivey's return suggest upcoming high stakes action? Possibly, however not as a promotional duel such as the recent Dwan vs Blom for $200.000. Hopefully, we will see Nosebleeds back as they were really popular prior-Black Friday.

    This week slight changes took place in middle and in the bottom of the Top 10 as Phil Hellmuth's moves to fourth, Michael Mizrachi going up to seventh. Here is the ranking as of 20th December:
