Global Poker IndexMost of you have probably heard of the Mediarex Global Poker Index (GPI) that ranks current poker players by their composite scores in qualifying tournaments over the previous 36-month period. It also names the year’s Player of the Year (POY).

But did you know that there is also a Female GPI as well as POY separate from the overall GPI (which includes ALL qualified current players)?

Kristen BicknellAs of November 19th, the female poker star leading the pack is Canadian Kristen Bicknell with 3,054.13 points, followed by Maria Lampropulos, Maria Ho, Loni Harwood and Wendy Freedman. Bicknell has two WSOP bracelets to her credit and was last year’s POY, so she appears to be heading for back-to-back GPI POY titles, a significant accomplishment.

Not only that, but Bicknell’s partner Alex Foxen, is currently sitting on top of the overall 2018 POY race. Talk about a  poker “power couple” !
