Eric Danis Named President of Global Poker Index

Eric Danis has been named President of the Global Poker Index (GPI) and the Hendon Mob Poker Database, the leading source on the internet for live poker tournament results (and a resource I use often). Danis’ tenure with the Global Poker Index’s parent company, Mediarex, dates back years, to when the company was called Zokay Entertainment. He became Head of Poker Content in 2013, before which he served as the company’s top statistician. “Eric has been instrumental in building the GPI and THM to the global powerhouses that they are today,” said Alexandre Dreyfus, Mediarex’s CEO, in a news release. “I’m delighted that he will now lead operations, ensuring that both GPI and THM continue to be a recognised authority in the world of poker.” Danis was in charge of organizing the American Poker Awards this year and actually won the Jury Prize. His acceptance speech in February was one

Eric Afriat Earns Second WPT Title in Coming from Short Stack to Win WPT Borgata Winter Poker Open

Defying the odds by coming off the short stack, Eric Afriat earned his second World Poker Tour championship on Friday by winning the WPT Borgata Winter Poker Open in Atlantic City. To say (and don’t groan) the deck was stacked against Afriat would be an understatement. He scraped into the final table with a 2.28 million chip stack and needed a telescope to see chip leader Zach Gruneberg and his 17.6 mountain of chips. There were also other obstacles for Afriat, including former World Champion Joseph McKeehen (5.955 million), Justin Zaki (5.565 million), Stephen Song (2.74 million) and local favorite Michael Marder (3.08 million), that he would have to overcome. Things would get worse for Afriat from the start. After picking up some chips, he turned around and doubled up Marder to make his task more difficult. Afriat would rectify that by taking down Song in sixth place after flopping

2017 WPT Montreal Main Event Day 3: Eric Afriat Aims for Second Playground Final Table This Year

There are only sixteen players remaining of the 606 original entries in the World Poker Tour (WPT) Montreal Main Event as action moves into Day 4 on Wednesday. Eric Afriat is the chip leader with 2.4 million chips, the only play over the 2 million mark. Afriat has some unfinished business at the Playground Poker Club in Montreal. In February, finished third in the WPT Playground Main Event, winning CAD $ 108,690 (USD $ 82,716). That tournament holds a special spot in poker history, as it was won by Ema Zajmovic, who became the first women ever to win an open WPT Main Event. Afriat does have one World Poker Tour title under his belt, as he won the 2014 WPT Seminole Hard Rock Showdown Championship Event. That victory was worth a bit over $ 1 million; that and his WPT Playground finish make up the bulk of his $

2016 WPT Montreal Day 1: Eric Afriat Leads Three Starting Flights

Before last week’s U.S. Presidential Election, there were some people in the States who said they would move to Canada if Donald Trump won. From the sounds of it, it seems that Trump himself kind of wants to run away, too, now that he realizes what the job entails. If some of those people who entertained thoughts of emigration were poker players, they have their chance to cross the border and stay this week, as the latest World Poker Tour Main Event, partypoker.net WPT Montreal, is well underway. WPT Montreal had three Day 1 flights, starting on Friday. As expected, the flights sizes got progressively larger, with the total field finally topping out at 648 entries. Going into Monday’s Day 2, 274 players remain with Eric Afriat as the chip leader, holding 214,500 chips. The buy-in for the Main Event was CAD $ 3,500 + 350   The winner will receive
