Share Article

The 2008 honour of being called the GPL champion went to Ron (nietgek) Schut from Holland after he beat more than 50,000 other players to win by over 3500 points.

Ron Schut is celebrating his momentous achievement by being over €2000 richer and also by playing in some sponsored live events this year.

Ron beat Lord Jasper who made a credible 2nd place. The top 100 players in the annual league all won a cash prize, as do the top 50 every month. Ron also picked up another €500 from a 2nd place finish in the December league, to top off his many top 3 places in the monthly leagues in 2007.

Suzie Hawker, Managing Director had the following to say, "I am absolutely delighted for Ron. He is an exceptional player and also a fantastic person. As is also a very social website with a great community, and I was lucky enough to meet Ron as well as many of our other players earlier this year."

He continued, "In 2008 there are a few changes at the GPL, which includes a new feel site with more functionality and improved player stats, as well as improved monthly annual and now weekly prizes from our partners. in 2008 we will be partnering Virgin Poker, Mermaid Poker and Poker Trillion. All 3 of these rooms have lot to offer online players in addition to our Great Poker League."

The GPL is free to join and is created from results of most Multi Table Tournaments from the Boss Poker Network.

In 2007 over 50,000 players earned points in our league, and every month over 1000 games feed the league.

Along with Free Membership, and an active forum, it's really no surprise that the GPL has grown to become so large and respected.

New players can join now and take advantage of our partners offers like 30% Rakeback, Discounted live tournament entries and even frequent flyer miles.
