Each week, the Global Poker Index releases a list of the top 300 tournament poker players in the world using a formula that takes into account a player’s results over six half-year periods. The GPI also ranks the top performers of the year over two six-month periods as calculated by the USA Today Global Poker Index point system.
There is a new leader atop the 2014 Global Poker Index Player of the Year race as we enter the last two months of the year. Daniel Colman has finally ended the nine-week reign of Dan Smith to take over the top spot in the POY standings. A seventh-place finish for Colman in the HK$500,000 buy-in Asia Championship of Poker Super High Roller earned him the needed points to pass Smith this week.

Colman earned 321.14 GPI points for finishing seventh in the 52-entry event won by Steve O’Dwyer. He also picked up another big payday of HK$2,900,000, worth about $373,932 USD. That ups Colman’s total live tournament earnings for 2014 to nearly $22.4 million.
Colman currently ranks third on the the all-time money list with $22,894,190 behind recent Poker Hall of Fame inductee Daniel Negreanu ($29,796,381) and Antonio Esfandiari ($26,252,746).
