  • The @MTLNationals and @MSKWolverines continue to set the pace in their respective @GPL conferences.

  • @FarazJaka swept @nanonoko this week in "The Cube" to conclude @GPL Summer Series Heat IV.

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.

As seen on Poker Central, the GPL has already raced through another summer "heat" featuring interconference heads-up matches in "The Cube." "Summer Series Heat IV" saw the Americas Conference and Eurasia Conference win three matches a piece, with little movement resulting in the standings of either conference.

Anatoly Filatov got things started in Heat IV in a good way for the Eurasia-leading Moscow Wolverines, taking two of three games from the New York Rounders' Bryn Kenney. Then it was the L.A. Sunset's Fedor Holz — current leader of both the 2016 Global Poker Index Player of the Year race and the GPI's overall rankings — winning two of three over Igor Kurganov of the London Royals.

Scott Ball next grabbed a 2-1 win for the Las Vegas Moneymakers in three hard-fought games with Dominik Nitsche of the Berlin Bears. Then it was Dario Sammartino of the Rome Emperors taking two of three as well from Pascal Lefrançois of the Americas-leading Montreal Nationals, with all three games being relatively quick ones.

Fabrice Soulier returned to the Cube for the second half of Sunday's doubleheader, winning two of three games for the Paris Aviators versus the Sao Paulo Metropolitans' João Bauer. The heat then wrapped up yesterday with Faraz Jaka of the San Francisco Rush sweeping Randy Lew of the Hong Kong Stars three games to none.

Those results mean both Montreal and Moscow remain atop their respective conferences again, with the only shift in the standings coming over in the Eurasia Conference where the London Royals nudged ahead of the Hong Kong Stars into second position.

Here are those results from GPL Summer Series Heat IV, with the standings heading into Heat V listed down below:
