Ismael Bojang Moves Up in GPI Ranking

Poker player Ismael Bojang, originally from Austria but currently residing in Germany, was among those who moved up after the traditional Wednesday update of the GPI ranking. He climbed 2 positions and now ranks 44th with a total of 2,985.49 points.

Bojang has cashed in as many as 78 events since 2008. He has had in-the-money finishes in some of the world’s most prestigious poker events, proving himself quite a skillful player. It could be said that 2015 has been the most profitable year for the Austria-born poker pro. He has collected the amount of $487,056 over the past nine months.

Although Bojang has not won any major event this year, he made three final table appearances at WSOP events and performed relatively well in other poker tournaments. The Austrian finished 3rd in the $10,000 2-7 Triple Draw Lowball (Limit) Championship for a payout of $130,851. He then took 8th place in the $10,000 Pot-Limit Hold’em Championship for $37,227. Bojang also finished 6th in the $25,000 Pot-Limit Omaha High Roller to collect the amount of $187,571, his career best live cash so far. The player had three more in-the-money finishes during this year’s edition of the Series but he cashed relatively small amounts of money.

His overall live tournament earnings currently amount to $1,808,316. As mentioned above, the player has collected money in some of the world’s most prestigious events over the past seven years. For instance, in October 2012, he scooped €65,450 ($84,507) for his 8th place in the EPT Season 9 San Remo €5,300 No-Limit Hold’em Main Event.

In February 2013, Bojang topped the field of the EPT Season 9 Deauville €10,300 Pot-Limit Omaha Championship to capture a first-place prize of €83,000 ($113,205). In December 2013, he finished 2nd in the EPT Season 10 Prague €2,200 No-Limit Hold’em for €75,600 ($103,598).

Last year, the Austrian poker pro cashed in a total of 9 WSOP events, including the $10,000 Main Event. He collected more than $250,000 for his performance during the Series. Although he did not win a gold bracelet, he had several final table appearances. For instance, he finished 5th in the $10,000 Pot-Limit Hold’em for a payout of a little less than $100,000.

With his live tournament winnings of $1.8 million, the poker professional is now ranking 20th in Germany’s all-time money list.
