GPL Results, Standings, and Schedule After Week 6: Big Showings from London and Moscow

  • Results, standings, and schedule following Week 6 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.

The sixth week of play in the GPL saw some shifting in the two conference standings, but not much. In the Americas Conference, the New York Rounders maintained the top spot, but saw the Montreal Nationals move up to second place and just one point shy. The Sao Paulo Metropolitans dropped from second to fourth, and all others in the conference stayed in the same spots.

In the Eurasia Conference, the Moscow Wolverines had a huge week to take a big lead over the pack, and the London Royals moved into a tie for second place despite coming into Week 6 in fourth place.

The Rounders picked up 14 points in Week 6, thanks to a sweep in the heads-up portion by franchise manager Bryn Kenney over Jonathan Jaffe of the San Francisco Rush. The sweep earned the Rounders nine points to help the squad maintain its No. 1 position in the conference, but with only third- and fourth-place results from the six-max portion last Tuesday, the Nationals were able to get within one point.

Speaking of the Nationals, the team went from fourth place to second following a big 21-point week. Martin Jacobson, winner of the 2014 World Series of Poker Main Event, took second place in the first six-max match for five points, then won the second for seven points. Jason Lavallee then took the reins in the heads-up portion on Thursday to battle with Darren Elias of the Metropolitans, and he won all three matches for another nine points.

At the bottom of the Americas Conference, the Las Vegas Moneymakers, currently fifth, and the Rush, currently sixth, only earned two points each and remain much off the pace.

In the Eurasia Conference, it was the Wolverines exploding with a big 18-point week to take a commanding lead over the pack. Heading into Week 6, the Wolverines were one point off the Aviators, but their French counterpart only mustered three and are now 14 points behind Moscow.

The best week in the Eurasia Conference went to the Royals. The team put up 19 points to move into a tie for second with the Aviators thanks to a win and a third place in the six-max portion by Sam Trickett, followed by Justin Bonomo sweeping Randy Lew in the heads-up duel.
