Danes top tournament winner list

1 August 2008

UBLIN, Ireland -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- New research by Card Player, in the form of the "World Tracker" global poker tournament tracking system, reveals that, per capita, Denmark has the most successful tournament players in the world.

Much like the Olympics, Card Player has used 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 1.85 medals per million

2. USA 1.30 medals per million

3. Australia 0.83 medals per million

4. Canada 0.66 medals per million

5. Norway 0.65 medals per million

The latest research will be published in the October 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.

Jeff Shulman, CEO of Card Player Media, said, "The Olympics are almost upon us and the whole world will be cheering on the sporting heroes in Beijing. It's where minnows can triumph over titans and that seems to be what's happening in the poker world too."
