Daniel Negreanu Back At The Top Of GPI 300

top 3

PokerStars Team Pro Daniel Negreanu again finds himself topping the Global Poker Index top 300 tournament player rankings, with their latest update seeing him replace Ole Schemion at the top of the pile and fellow Team Pro Vanessa Selbst moving into second place.

Whilst Schemion drops two places in the top 300 he is still currently sat in the top spot for the race for the GPI Player of the Year.

Selbst getting into second place represents her highest ever ranking on the GPI top 300 and the highest ever achieved by a female player. She could even go top if she puts in a strong performance at the upcoming EPT Sanremo.

There was only one new face in the top ten with Ragi Raghavan once again forcing himself in. With him coming in it meant that Philipp Gruissem was evicted and is now actually ranked in 15th place.

This represents only the second time in a year that he has fallen out of the top 100.
