Global Poker Index: Jason Mercier overtakes the lead from Seidel

Tags: Bertrand Grospellier, Erik Seidel, global poker index, Jason Mercier.
Posted on Friday, February 17, 2012 by "T".

Erik Seidel, who had outstanding tournament results last year, has dropped 2 positions since last week on the Global Poker Index. The main reason for this drop is due to his 2nd place finish in the Epic Poker League $20,000 NLHE 6-Max Main Event aging into Period 2.

The new top two players are Jason Mercier, from USA, and "everyone's" favorite Frenchman ElkY. The only player that left the Top Ten last week was Sam Trickett, who dropped from 6th to 11th place. One of the reasons for this is that he, just like Seidel, lost points in Period 1 due to the Epic $20,000 6-Max Main Event results aging into Period 2. He also has no new scores to replace his 11th place finish in that event in Period 1.

Looks like Sam Trickett still has an unstable way of playing compared to the other members from this list. The fight at this ranking is insane. They always try to do their best at any event that take part, but eventhough I don’t know if they follow this list with much attention. Knowing about this can work as a way to increase the pressure on them, maybe it’s better not to know how things are until the end of the year.
