GPI Announces Partnership with WPT

The Global Poker Index has announced a partnership with the World Poker Tour and this means that Alex Dreyfus’ plan of taking over the poker world takes another step in the right direction.

This new partnership means that the GPI will now track the WPT Player of the Year leader board, one of the most coveted yearly awards in poker. From now on all WPT events will also be integrated into GPI’s highly popular Fantasy Poker Manger on Facebook, and it will be available on WPT.com as well.

Drefyus says, “I’m thrilled to expand our relationship with the World Poker Tour and to help promote the WPT as a whole. In the United States, the success of fantasy games correlates strongly with the popularity of many sports, and we believe the same rings true for poker. Our Fantasy Poker Manager advocates engagement from both hardcore and casual fans of the game.”

WPT President Adam Pliska adds, “I applaud Alexandre Dreyfus and the Global Poker Index for taking positive steps to professionalize the sport. The GPI ranking system will allow more WPT players, regardless of the WPT offering they choose, to participate in the Season XIII Player of the Year race and provide better indicators for players throughout the entire season.”

From now on all WPT branded events including the WPT 500, WPTDeepStacks and WPT National are included in the Player of the Year race. The WPT Main Events will be playable on the Fantasy Poker Manager app and Facebook site.
