GPI Player of the Year: Dan Shak Back In The Lead

Dan Shak

Each week, the Global Poker Index publishes the standings of the top 1,000 players in its Player of the Year race. Once a month, PokerNews will take an in-depth look at the top 10 players' results and the recent tournaments that have caused a splash in the standings.

A player's score is composed of up to 11 tournament results during the calendar year. Of those 11 results, up to six will come from Jan. 1 through June 30 and up to five will be from tournaments starting from July 1 through Dec. 31. Like the Global Poker Index Rankings, all tournaments must have a buy-in of at least $1,000 and contain at least 21 entrants to be eligible in comprising a player's score.

Dan Shak is back on top of the standings, following his cash in the WPT L.A. Poker Classic Main Event. Hot on his heels is Micah Raskin, who placed third in a high roller event there as well.
