Alex Dreyfus has announced the full line-up of teams and team managers for the first season of the Global Poker League (GPL).

He has enlisted the support of a crowd-pulling selection of top poker players to be team managers, and created a geographically targeted set of teams which should ensure global interest in the events.

Several of the team managers are sponsored pros for online poker rooms—for example, Liv Boeree is one of the most well known members of Team PokerStars—demonstrating that Dreyfus has overcome one of the biggest hurdles in his format: Convincing online operators to permit their sponsored pros to participate.
