  1. For the first time since 2019, the Global Poker Index will be calling out new names at the Global Poker Awards when introducing the 2021 Players of the Year as Ali Imsirovic, Nadya Magnus, and David Mzareulov have been confirmed as GPI 2021 Player of the Year winners. Imsirovic, the young high-stakes pro, started the year as the GPI’s overall number #1 and ended up going wire-to-wire, never losing his lead and finishing just above runner-up Chance Kornuth and third-place finisher Shannon Shorr. Imsirovic, who also finished the year as the PokerGO Tour overall leader, is renown for his seemingly routine victories in the regularly running Las Vegas super high roller scene. According to his Hendon Mob profile, Imsirovic recorded 53 in-the-money finishes in 2021 with 14 outright victories. Of his more than $15 million in career live earnings, $6.1 million was earned in 2021. He had 22 six-figure scores, a number that will be naturally augmented by his average five-figure buy-in amount, and three times earned more than $500,000. This included his largest, and last, score of the year, his win in the WPT Rock ’N’ Roll Poker Open $25,500 Super High Roller for $695,355. Imsirovic unseats Alex Foxen who was the last player to hold the title, winning back-to-back Player of the Year races in 2018 and 2019. The 2020 GPI POY race was not held due to the pandemic. This will be Imsirovic’s second Global Poker Award after having been named the 2018 Breakout Player of the Year. GPI Overall Leaderboard Top 5 [table id=282 /] This is the first GPI title for Nadya Magnus who earned the 2021GPI Female Player of the Year, making it the first time since 2017 that Kristen Bicknell has not earned that honor. It was a big year for Magnus who recorded 24 in-the-money finishes, good for more than $426,000 on the year with 10 five-figure scores. She started the year out strong with a runner-up finish in the $2,200 event at the Seminole Hard Rock Lucky Hearts Poker Open earning $93,566, her largest result of the year. Kyna England, the MSPT’s 2021 Player of the Year, ended up as the runner-up right behind Magnus on the leaderboard with Las Vegas pro Katie Lindsay finishing the year in third. GPI Female Player of the Year Leaderboard Top 5 [table id=284 /] The GPI introduced a new POY award this year that recognizes players grinding events with buy-ins up to $2,500 and Houston, Texas residence David Mzareulov is the first to win that award. Mzareulov, who according to his Hendon Mob profile has live career earnings totaling more than $658,000, had 10 five-figure scores and well as his career-high cash of 205,000 by finishing in second place in the $1,125 Millionaire Mayhem Poker Series event. GPI Mid-Major Leaderboard Top 5 [table id=283 /] All three players will receive their awards when the Global Poker Awards take place on February 18, 2022, from the PokerGO Studio in Las Vegas. In addition to the three Player of the Year awards, the ceremony will be handing out a total of 26 awards including GPI Breakout Player of the Year, Final Table Performance, Blest Vlogger, Best Streamer, and Best Broadcasts. There will be three Fan Choice Awards to be handed out as well including Best Hand, Poker Personality, and Best Trophy.
  2. The Global Poker Index and The Hendon Mob are finishing the year with a flurry of poker industry news beginning with this week’s announcement that, after a year away, the Global Poker Awards will return to the PokerGO Studio in Las Vegas on Friday, February 18. Having skipped the industry awards in 2021 due to the global pandemic, The GPI is preparing for the show’s imminent return. The 2021 Global Poker Awards will celebrate the year in poker by handing out more than 20 awards including 2021 GPI Player of the Year, Player’s Choice for Toughest Opponent, Best Vlogger, and the hand-selected Poker ICON award. While the full list of awards have yet to be announced, and some changes are expected, previous awards that are likely to be handed out again include Breakout Player of the Year, Event of the Year, Journalist of the Year, Final Table Performance of the Year, and a variety of poker content awards. The voting process for the awards will be announced in the immediate future with voting to take place early in 2022. Fans will also have their say with three different Fan Choice awards. However, in the meantime, the Global Poker Awards are looking for feedback from the community. “Most award shows you have to submit your candidacy, we looking for more of that,” said Eric Danis, President of the GPI/THM on the most recent episode of their The Poker Show podcast. “We do a lot of work in the background, we have great people that help us but if you know someone, or an article, or anything…that you want to recognize, make to submit that info to us @GPI on Twitter or you can always email us as well.” https://twitter.com/gpi/status/1470785352000491523?s=20 Within 48 hours, the GPI and Hendon Mob were making news again with an announcement of the latest addition to those people “that help in the background” as Kevin Mathers has signed on to join the team as the new GPI/THM Poker Information Manager. Typically, an industry hiring, even an important one, would understandably fly under the radar however Mathers has cultivated one of the most prolific Twitter accounts (@Kevmath) in the poker community by being a constant source of information relied on my recreational and professional players alike. With more than 10 years on the inside of the poker industry, perhaps most well known as the Twitter Czar for the World Series of Poker for a number of years, Mathers is one of the most trusted and popular names in the game. “As one of the most respected sources of information in the poker community, we are thrilled to have Kevin on board,” Danis said. “We have always dreamed of adding Kevin to the team. It means a lot to us to welcome Kev to his new home and we are excited for what he brings to the table.” https://twitter.com/Kevmath/status/1471513275737149444?s=20
