AnteSvante Wins May PLB


The points have been awarded and, by the slimmest of margins, Anton AnteSvanteWigg (pictured) won the May Monthly PLB on PocketFives with 3,529 points. He was about 70 points ahead of Chris moorman1 Moorman, who finished in second place with 3,461 points.

Wigg’s May began with a win in the Night on Stars for $6,300 on May 5. A week later, he took down the PokerStars $44 No Limit Hold’em Turbo and $109 Cubed on back-to-back days and pocketed another $19,000.

On May 16, Wigg final tabled a SCOOP Four-Max event for $13,000 and recorded another fourth place finish a day later in the Stars $109 No Limit Hold’em Turbo Re-Entry.

His second biggest hit during the month was worth $50,000 and came after a win in the 888 Poker Volcano on May 19. That score earned him 441 PLB Points. Five days later, he banked a solid $90,000 for winning the PokerStars Sunday 500. That score was worth 723 PLB Points and helped solidify his Monthly PLB title.

This was his first Monthly PLB win. He’s the #2 player worldwide in the PocketFives Rankingsand #1 in his native Sweden. Incredibly, despite being a staple of the top of the PocketFives Country Poker Rankings for quite a while now, Sweden had never won a Monthly PLB title before Wigg.

The second place player on the leaderboard this month was Moorman, who has a site-leading four Monthly PLB titles. Moorman last won a Monthly PLB in February 2014.

Wigg’s 3,529 points are the second most by any Monthly PLB winner since last September. Here’s how the leaderboard looked:
