WPTDeepStacks wins the GPI "Mid-Major Circuit of the Year" Award!

Last night, the fourth annual Global Poker Index American Poker Awards presented by PokerStars were held at the Andaz Hotel in West Hollywood. Lynn Gilmartin took to the stage to host the evening which attracted a legion of poker players and industry insiders. 

As part of the festivities, 20 categories would be awarded the coveted GPI trophy. This year, WPTDeepStacks (WPTDS) was up against 2016 winner, World Series of Poker Circuit, fellow '16 & '17 nominee Mid-States Poker Tour and newcomer, Rungood Poker Series. Eventually, WPTDS came out on top as a result of numerous successful events including the record-breaking WPTDS Hollywood $1m GTD Main Event, the WPTDS Championship at Thunder Valley and several other tournaments that set tour and/or casino records, respectively.

The World Poker Tour and DeepStacks would like to thank the GPI, the jury, our players and fellow nominees!
