History and Information
TheHendonMob was founded as a online tracking website for live tournaments in 2001. The original Hendon Mob which started and gave name to the online version was created by four friends from London England. The guys met each other at a home game in Hendon London in the early nineties and quickly became friends. The friendship took them all over England as well as the rest of the world to play poker and they quickly became known as the Hendon Mob. The name has stuck with them ever since, becoming increasingly more famous year by year for their poker skill and website.
TheHendonMob created the website in response to the increasing popularity of poker, starting with just some blogs, pictures, tips and stories later turned into having created the most comprehensive live tournament poker database in the world.
TheHendonMob follows almost all official live poker tournaments played in casinos as well as bigger international poker clubs, tracking the results and saving it in their database. The data's are then released on the website, making it possible to search any player that cashed in the tournament.
Over the years, TheHendonMob has tracked over 70,000 different live tournaments from all over the world and has a database of over 250,000 players. This makes it by far the biggest live tournament database existing and is used daily by thousands of people. TheHendonMob is also a great tool to use when you are playing live poker, as you can look up all the players at your table if you know their names. Chances are that if they have ever cashed in any serious tournament, they will be listed there. TheHendonMob provides a full list of cashes, stats and in some cases also a bio of each player. This is very useful to be able to see if you are playing a rookie or a pro in a live tournament.
TheHendonMob gets all their tournament results either directly from the casinos and poker clubs or via other tracking websites. Being the leading website they have deals with almost all casinos and tournament series about getting the results right after they have created.
In 2013 TheHendonMob was sold to Global Poker Index (GPI) in order to secure that the website would continue to provide stats for the players as well as improve the time of the statistics to come online and cover more tournaments. TheHendonMob was very pleased with the sale to GPI as they only saw them as being able to continue running their site the proper way.
