Ole Schemion stormed the 2013 GPI Player of the Year this September and climbed all the way to the first place, after entering the top 10 in early August. The German has a 15 points advantage over the runner-up, while Daniel Negreanu is on third but within striking distance. The Canadian poker player lost the second place to Paul Volpe who is trying to reclaim the lead after relinquishing it one month ago.
The European Poker Tour is in full swing and with London being the next stop of the circuit, this is the event that could make or break Volpe. Mike Watson is clinging to his fourth place after losing one position since the GPI released its previous data, while Scott Seiver is the one rounding out this top. His money finish at WPT Borgata Open propelled him to the 10th position, at the expense of David Peters who fell on 11.
The overall standings suffered virtually no modifications this week, as Marvin Rettenmaier is still leading the list with 3253 points. He expressed his sadness recently for having his name misspelled on a trophy he won, but if he consolidates his position at the top of the GPI 300 list, he has good reasons to be optimistic that tournament organisers will get his name right next time he wins a major trophy.
Vanessa Selbst climbed 21 positions this week all the way up to the 31st place, while Dan Kelly and Allen Kessler surged 29, respectively 35 places. Eric Baldwin improved as well, although he sits on the 237th place, far away from the fast paced action of Top 100. At the opposite end of the spectrum we have poker pros Benjamin Hamnett, Roberto Romanello and David Baker who sank between 39 and 49 places.
