    GDAM announces names.

    The upcoming GuangDong LTD Asia Millions (GDAM) has recently announced the attendance of poker heavyweights Gus Hansen, Erik Seidel, Jonathan Duhamel and Greg Merson. The GDAM will be taking place between 5-7th June at PokerStars LIVE at the City of Dreams hotel, Macau.

    The event is a massive US$ 130,000 buy-in (with two rebuys available per player) with an expected field of more than 100, making it the largest prize pool outside the WSOP in poker history.

    The vast majority of the players who will be taking a seat at the GDAM will be members of the GuangDong Group LTD but there are a limited number of spots open to other players willing to part with that large chunk of change, which pro’s from around the globe have keenly been snapping up. Apart from Hansen, Seidel, Duhamel and Merson; John Juanda, Jospeh Cheong, Yevgeniy Timoshenko, Nick Wong, Aaron Lim, Devan Tang, Igor Kurganov, Mike Watson, Tobias Reinkemeire and JC Alvarado have all announced they will also be in attendance making for a mouth watering two days of poker action.

    The names above are just some of the worlds top players who have announced their attendance at the event but it will also feature willing players from around the globe looking to make a huge increase in their winnings total as well. PokerStars have recently been running satellites offering players a chance to win a package to the GDAM which includes event fee, spending money, accommodation and transport. With plenty of time still to go until we kickoff we could yet see more of the poker worlds biggest names to announce their arrival.

    The countdown has begun on an event which looks set to break records and make its mark on poker history.

    Global Poker Index Ranks Lim and Rossiter and other Australian players.

    The Global Poker index (GPI) is a ranking system which factors in performance, events and total winnings along with many more related statistics to create a ranking of the best performing pokers players currently playing on the tours. Its flagship format is the GPI 300 which lists the best 300 players in the world, the list everyone wants to be a part of, which currently features six Australian players.

    Following an impressive 2013 already it is not surprising that Aaron Lim is the highest ranked Australian on the GPI at number 49. Lim has claimed over US$ 680,000 this year which includes becoming the first WSOP bracelet winner, winning APPT Seoul and finishing runner-up in the high roller EPT Berlin.

    Jeff Rossiter is the second ranked Australian on the GPI sitting at number 83 who has followed up his impressive 2012 with another great year appearing on the Aussie Millions and multiple EPT final tables this year.

    The GPI 300 only houses four more Australians with Brendon Rubie (99), Jonathan Maramalikis (151), Grant Levy (191) and David Stiecke (251) but with massive events still to come in Macau and the WSOP we could see these players move up and players like Daniel Neilson, Joe Hachem, Daniel Laidlaw and Jackie Glazier all enter into the GPI 300.
