GPL Results, Standings, and Schedule After Week 5: Big Jump from Sao Paulo

Global Poker League
  • Results, standings, and schedule following Week 5 of Season 1 of the Global Poker League.

Welcome to the weekly rundown of the Global Poker League here on PokerNews. In this space, all of the past week's results from the GPL will be listed, followed by league standings and a look at the following week's schedule.

Week 5 of the GPL resulted in bigger movement from the Americas Conference versus the Eurasia Conference, although the leaderboard shifted in both.

In the Americas Conference, the New York Rounders moved into first place following a 13-point week, but it was the jump made by the Sao Paulo Metropolitans that stood out the most. The Mets added 16 points to the season total and jumped three spots to move into second place in the conference and only four points shy of the Rounders. The Mets earned 10 points from the two six-match matches last Tuesday, a result of two second-place finishes for Felipe Mojave. Then in the heads-up portion last Thursday, Thiago Nishijima won two of three matches against Tom Marchese to add another six points.

While the Mets moved up three spots, it was the Montreal Nationals dropping two spots and falling from first to a tie for third in the conference. This was due to an unimpressive four-point week, with only one point gained in the two six-match matches and three points in the heads-up portion from franchise manager Marc-Andre Ladouceur.

In the Eurasia Conference, two couples of teams swapped positions, with the Paris Aviators jumping into first place over the Moscow Wolverines and bumping the Russian squad down to second, and the London Royals jumped into fourth place and bumped the Berlin Bears down to fifth. The Aviators and the Royals both had 14-point weeks, which was the best in the conference.

Of note, the Rome Emperors scored 13 points in the Eurasia Conference, which was the second best in the conference. Although the team still remains in last place, it is now only four points behind fifth-place Berlin, which is a much more manageable gap going into Week 6. That said, the Emperors will have work cut out for them as the team faces the Aviators in next week's heads-up portion.
