Dubline, Ireland (PRWEB) December 19, 2008
In November 2008 three Danish Poker Players won $10 million dollars in the space of seven days, winning the World Series of Poker main event, the Amsterdam Master Classics main event, and the Ladbrokes European Online Championship of Poker IV main event.
Back in July 2008 Card Player Media research proclaimed that Danes were the most successful tournament players, per capita, in the world with "World Tracker" its sophisticated tournament player tracking tool.
The recent string of incredible results by Danes vindicates World Tracker as the world's leading indicator of tournament success.
Firstly online whizz "hahila" won the main event at LEOCOP IV for $229,500, then Peter Eastgate, at 22 years-old, became the youngest ever world champion at the World Series of Poker winning $9,152,416, before veteran World Series of Poker bracelet winner Jan Sorensen won $800,972 at the Amsterdam Master Classics main event.
Much like the Olympics, Card Player uses an extensive list of qualifying tournaments (including WSOP, WPT, and EPT events). World Tracker awards Gold, Silver, and Bronze medals to the countries whose citizens come first, second, and third in major international tournaments.
The top five countries in the poker tournament world are currently:
1. Denmark 2.04 medals per million
2. USA 1.33 medals per million
3. Australia 1.21 medals per million
4. Sweden 0.67 medals per million
5. Canada 0.66 medals per million
Sweden moved into the top 5 of the World Tracker for the first time while Canada dropped to fifth and Norway fell to sixth.
The latest research is published in the January edition of Card Player Poker + Sports and readers can keep up-to-date with the ongoing per capita medal tally each month in the magazine.
