Global Poker League

http://www.pokernews.com/news/2015/0...ague-21174.htm

Bit confused about the premise but $5m to be invested. Cliffs:

- 8 franchises, with a roster of 7 players (draft), including 2 online & live qualifiers.
- 10 week season, including online component.
- leveraging GPI/HendonMob relationship with 1,400 casinos in 95 countries

Not much else released yet but seems to be a hybrid of team poker and a poker league. No buy-in data, dates etc yet. Bit skeptical of team poker/such a top heavy 'pro only' series, but the online qualifier bit might be ok.

Re: Global Poker League

I think it's cool. Team Poker can work really well if structured correctly, it creates a lot of banter and camaraderie. Problems only really arise when you have people from the same team playing at the same tables, so as long as that is kept to a minimum I think it can work well.

Re: Global Poker League

This is interesting. It's a tough concept but I think Dreyfus is a good guy to make a run at it. So many people have tried this kind of thing and they've pretty much all failed miserably with horrible consequences to the poker community. From everything I've heard though, this guy is pretty solid and squared away.
