Germany’s Martin Finger is well-positioned to garner more earnings in poker

The GPI traces player’s performance for their antecedent three years of play, in qualifying events with 21 or more participants.

The formula applied appraises result age, field obstacles and number of entrants to come up with live tournament ranks for different gurus. The GPI scores earned by players are attained by multiplying various factors, including Buy-in, Aging and Finishing. Germanic Martin Finger was ranked 50th by the GPI in the February 2015 release list. However, his eminence was not stoked by this as he boasts a WSOP bracelet under his belt and two EPT wins. He has made numerous appearances at high-profile poker tournaments where his results speak for themselves.

At the fore of his resume is his winning at the PokerStars EPT Prague Main Event where he took home €720,000. Similarly, he brought the final table down at the 2013 PokerStars EPT £50,000 Super High-Roller where he garnered a lump sum of £821,000.  He minted his first-ever bracelet on the same year in the World Series of Poker Event #21 $3,000 NLHE Six-Handed that saw him squeeze out $506,764. He has also finished in the money in the 2014 WOSP Event #60 $1,500 NLHE placing 169th for $3,460, Event #21 $1,500 NLHE emerging 138th for $3,098 and in the $1,500 Ante-Only NLHE Event #47 for a 66th position and a meager $2,718.
