Event #8 has Brant Taylor reclaiming the #1 position with Dave Collier slipping to second place. Also with back to back third place finishes by Rik Rohrback in Events #7 and 8 he has jumped 10 spots from 13th to 3rd in the rankings. Chris Nishi also slides into the top 10 with a move from 14th to 10th. Kelli Cera and Jordan Kroeker slide down out of the top 10 into 13th and 14th resepectively.

 

November 24, 2019

Event #6 resulted in a new #1 as Dave Collier finished 2nd and even though first place Brant Taylor finished 17th and added to his DHPI total, the 60 points obtained by Collier was enough to take over first place.

 

November 10, 2019

Event #5 resulted in no changes in the top 3, but lots of movement between 4th and 16th. Johnny Dai with the win moved from 39th to 15th, Everett passed Alyssa into 4th and Kelli jumped 4 spots from 10th to 6th. And no Mike Honeyman you haven’t passed me yet… keep trying.

 

October 26, 2019

Updated to include Event #4. Roger moves up to the #3 spot.

 

October 24, 2019

Updated including first 3 events of 2019-20 season. 2017 results drop resulting in some players falling a lot. Dave Collier is now challenging Brant Taylor for the first position.

 

April 2, 2019

Second update to the DHPI and we have a new man on top with both Chris Fraser and Brant Taylor tied for the lead but expect movement after the League Final

 

February 18, 2019

For a little extra fun I have added a Die Hard Poker Index which is loosely based on the Global Poker Index to better rate the top players in the league. You get points based on a top 30% finish in an event with higher points for a higher finish. You then get a total for each of the past 3 years. Finishes from 2017 are only worth 50% of their values, finishes in 2018 are worth 75% of their values and finishes in 2019 are worth 100%. This aging factor results in more weight being placed on more recent events in much the same way as the poker industry standard Global Poker Index (GPI) does.

 

Hopefully you enjoy yet another fun stat to look at and congrats to Brant Taylor who is the current DHPI #1! Brant is closely followed by Chris Fraser who is only 2 points behind him. Players that are new to the league but off to good starts like Dave Collier will find it hard to take over the #1 spot until they withstand the test of time. But at #13 he is doing just fine. Likewise players such as Jordan Kroeker and Georg Jancev have shown that even short durations can move them up the DHPI list.
