Global Poker Masters Set to Kick off on March 21

January 21, 2015

The GPI (Global Poker Index)’s Global Poker Masters is an event meant to legitimize poker’s place in the world as true skill-based competition, and the organization is indeed extremely serious about it. So serious in fact that the event is already scheduled, its participants set and ready to go. Set to kick off on March 21, the Global Poker Masters will wrap up on March 22 and it will be hosted by the Hilton Portomaso, in Malta.

Featuring a truly unique format, the GPM – which is also referred to as the World Cup of Poker – will see 8 national teams compete. The teams, as well as their individual players have been determined based on performance tracked by the GPI. Thusly, we’ll have the US, with Dan Smith and Bryn Kenney among others, doing battle at the green felt with Britain (Oliver Price, Sam Trickett and co), Canada, Germany, Russia, France, Italy and Ukraine. Each team consists of 4 players qualified by their GPI scores, as well as a 5th, wild-card player.

Bound to generate plenty of fan interest, the GPM is set to be broadcast in 5 languages, through a number of leading digital platforms. The GPI will provide betting opportunities as part of the fan experience package too, as major bookmakers are also slated to stream the competition.

The poker world has thus far had a superb reaction to the GPM as everyone has had positive things to say about the upcoming poker extravaganza.
