Several people moved up in the top 10 this week. Andy McLEOD took over the top spot in the Sliding PLB and is now the 6th ranked player on the site. His Sunday was particularly impressive, in that he picked up four different scores worth over 100 points, the best of which was a 2nd place finish in the UB $500. His other final tables were in the Bodog $100k, the Party $300k, and the Stars $100 rebuy. Roothlus, mr.menlo, and BeL0WaB0ve also each gained a spot, and they now sit at 8, 9, and 10 respectively.
THAY3R has been getting a lot of press for his live cashes, especially since his fourth place finish in the Mandalay Bay WPT event. Last week, Thayer took down $63k for his first place finish in the Full Tilt $1k tournament. That same day, he final tabled a $150 on the same site and took 3rd in the $100 rebuy on Stars. His ranking now sits at 28 after an gain of eight spots.
While a lot of people were out playing WSOP events this week, MattSuspect showed he wasn't taking too long a break after his recent win in the Sunday Million. On June 5th, he defeated phatcat heads up to take down the Super Tuesday on Stars, which was worth another nice bankroll pad of $76k and a six spot gain in the rankings.
Meanwhile, Intervention and SCTrojans just keep on climbing every week. Intervention didn't cash in anything between his $41k win on Sunday June 3rd and the following Sunday when he took down the UB $500. The way he's winning, he's just going to keep moving up further and further, and he now sits at number 37. SCTrojans, meanwhile, continued to benefit from his incredible recent weeks. He's knocking on the door of the top 40 and continues to rise.
Rdcrsn is on early pace to win the June MPLB, and this past week has been most of the reason he's at the top of the list. He picked up three wins in the week, including the $55k Guaranteed on Stars. He also had a 4th in the same event later in the week and a runner up finish in the Full Tilt $300. He's reemerged as a top 50 player, having moved up to the 45th spot this week.
VVubanga is just outside the top 50 now after a ten spot jump to number 51. His week included wins in tihe $20 and $50 rebuys on Stars, as well as a runner up finish in the $100 freezeout and a final table in the $200 rebuy.
Moorman1 also had a nice week last week that included a win in the Full Tilt Saturday $100 rebuy, which has a $45k guarantee. He had another five-figure cash the same day, taking 2nd in the PokerStars Online EPT event. He moved up to number 80 this week.
KUSH continued to rise as well, moving up 10 spots to number 86. He picked up two more wins since the last update, including the UB $120 bounty tournament.
The only new player to the rankings this week is poohdabear1, who for quite some time has resided at the top of the leaderboard for players whose average buy-in is $50 or less. He's been picking up some bigger wins lately, including a 1st place on Friday in the $50 cubed on Stars. He had six tracked final tables during the week.
