‘C Darwin2’ eviscerated the competition in October to win the PLB title and then followed that up in November with another strong month and yet another PLB title. ‘C Darwin2’ was the only player to cross the 3,000-point mark and finished with a manageable margin of victory over Johannes ‘Greenstone25’ Korsar and ‘hellohellohello.’

The most points won by ‘C Darwin2’ came in the PokerStars High Roller series. He won Event #3 ($1,050 NLHE Eight Max Turbo Progressive KO) to win 504.98 points and $45,290. Overall, ‘C Darwin2’ shipped five tournaments and maintained his place as #1 on the overall leaderboard.

It wasn’t in the High Roller series, but Korsar’s biggest score did come in a PokerStars high roller event. Korsar emerged victorious in the $2,100 Sunday High Roller on November for $59,180 and 519.62 points.

The most points claimed in a single event by any player in November’s top 10 belongs to ‘hellohellohello.’ In the PokerStars High Roller Series Event #12 ($2,100 Turbo), ‘hellohellohello’ beat a field of 264 entrants to win the tournament, $101,912, and a whopping 728.01 PLB points.

A new name is in the top 10 in Guntas ‘lovefee’ Aleskins. The #1 player in Latvia is currently #31 worldwide and placed fourth in November’s PLB. Of Aleskin’s 2,718.42 PLB points, 552.27 came on November 14 in the $275,000 guaranteed Super Tuesday event. Aleskin defeated a final table that included Dominik Nitsche to win $57,436.

The third Swedish player in the top five is ‘Sheater‘. The worldwide #5 took care of business last month with five wins and a second place finish in the High Roller Series Event 12, won by ‘hellohellohello.’

For the second consecutive month, ‘Discoovery’ finished in sixth place. The Swede final-tabled the High Roller Series $5,200 PLO event and won the $50,000 guaranteed High Roller on partypoker to account for a large percentage of their points for the month.

Conor ‘1_conor_b_1’ Beresford is #1 in England and #7 in November’s PLB. Beresford put together a month including a third-place finish in the High Roller Series $2,100 8-Max $500,000 guaranteed and a win in the Big $215.

Fellow Brit Charlie ‘chaz_man_chaz’ Combes is #8 on the list. A Super Tuesday third-place run combined with a partypoker High Roller win and a Hot $82 win have Combes peaking toward the end of the year.

Austrian top dog ‘rolandbauer’chimes in at #9 with 484.77 points of his month coming from a November 5 Super High Roller win.

Closing out the best of November is Kurt ‘kurt23x’ Fitzgerald. A Hot $215 win and Heavyweight: Uppercut title compiled most of Fitzgerald’s points. The biggest chunk came from a score in the Daily 500 $50,000 guaranteed on PokerStars, that resulted in 343.51 points.

Finishing on the fringe of the top 10 were Andreas ‘r4ndomr4gs’ Berggren and Fabrizio ‘SixthSenSe19’ Gonzalez.
