Stephen Chidwick nails both- the 2018 Global Poker Index (GPI) Player of the Year and overall GPI rankings. It’s highly commendable how Chidwick is unbeaten at number 1 in the POY rankings for 11 straight weeks and the GPI overall rankings for 25 weeks. What’s also noteworthy is that the top seven spots have practically not changed at all in the last four weeks!
Here’s a sneak-peek into the latest POY scoreboard that shows nothing less than a cut-throat competition underway.

As far as the POY leaderboard goes, Stephen Chidwick and Justin Bonomo are sitting comfortably at number 1 and number 2 respectively even though they added nothing in September. However, the five right behind these two, are definitely making the competition a lot stiffer than it already is.
Continuing at number 3, Jake Schindler made through three final tables at the 2018 Poker Masters to boost his overall score.
Ben Yu has made an entry into the top 10 list and is currently placed at No.9 while Jason Koon moved up the ladder to reach No.8 after cashing big bucks at the Poker Masters 2018.

In the overall rankings too, Chidwick is at No.1 but, Alex Foxen has grabbed rank No.2 pushing down Bonomo back to 3. The remaining rankings are almost similar as last month with only Joe McKeehen and Benjamin Pollak switching places. Mikita Badziakouski has made his debut in the top 10 list though- thanks to his stunning victory in the Triton Super High Roller Series Main Event where he banked a whopping amount of $5.2million.
