PLYMOUTH, United Kingdom (November 5th, 2013) – Gaming event management and consultancy, Living it Loving it Ltd., and The Global Poker Index (“GPI”) have joined forces to add even more value to players at this years’ Prague Poker Festival with the introduction of their Player of the Series event which carries a €10,000 minimum prize pool and is accessible to festival players at all tournament levels.

Players taking part in all Prague Poker Festival events held at the Card Casino, (with the exception of satellites and team events), will be eligible for GPI Leader board points with the top 3 finishers sharing the €10,000 prize pool.

“We wanted to give something back to our loyal players, in what is now our third Prague Poker Festival, and felt this was a perfect opportunity to do so,” comments Dave Brannan, CEO, Living it Loving it Ltd.

“The events and festivals we organise involve a wide variety of players from experienced pros to up-and-coming amateurs. Everyone will have a shot at winning this regardless of bankroll. We are excited to be able to do this on such a large level and are extremely pleased to be working in partnership with GPI in order to make this happen for the players.”

The GPI is a ranking of the top 300 live tournament poker players in the world as of the day it is published. Players are ranked weekly based on their performance by finishing in cash positions in qualifying tournaments occurring over the previous 36 month period.

Alex Dreyfus, Owner of the GPI and thehendonmob.com explains, “As we do for most of the big poker events and casinos in the world we are delighted to provide a tailored solution over the period of the Prague Poker Festival, which will offer a great opportunity to all players, even those who play at the smallest buy in level.”
