David ‘dehhhhh’ Coleman #1 In New Jersey for Third Straight Month


David ‘dehhhhh’ Coleman has done well both in live and online tournaments in June.

The poker action has shifted west over the last few weeks for many of New Jersey’s top online players. Quite a few of them have come to Las Vegas to put their live skills to the test but the action has still been profitable for a few back home. For the third straight month, David ‘dehhhhh’ Coleman is #1 in the New Jersey Online Poker Rankings.

Coleman’s June included 11 victories across New Jersey’s online sites. He also has cashed three times in the World Series of Poker with a payday earned in the $3,333 High Roller event played on WSOP.com. In the last week alone, Coleman has cashed for $21,000 in World Series of Poker events.

Up one spot from third to second is Yong ‘ykwon17’ Kwon, who earned 12 victories in June. Kwon’s wins were highly profitable as he won two PokerStars Sunday Specials with the each victory worth over $10,000 apiece.

Rounding out the top-three is Mike ‘Lav519’ Lavenburg. Lavenburg made seven total trips to the winner’s circle along with 10 additional podium finishes.

Back in for another month in fourth place is Daniel ‘centrfieldr’ Lupo. The former NJ #1 picked up three victories with his largest score coming as a fourth place finish in the PartyPokerNJ $215 buy in $40,000 guaranteed RE + Bonus. Lupo earned $3,600 in that event.

There are three newcomers to the Poker Rankings this month with Josh ‘thejberg’ Rothberg and John ‘Selurznug’ Cosgrove coming in at fifth and eighth, respectively. Rothberg won four NJ tournaments in June while Cosgrove took down 10 of his own.

Dan ‘wildman75’ Buzgon and Jeremy ‘Jermz’ Danger each fell one spot and are now sixth and seventh. Buzgon has spent the month playing live in Las Vegas and has three cashes so far this summer. Danger took down 11 titles in June.

Falling two spots from seventh to ninth is Craig ‘craigruby’ Rubinstein, who made four top-three finishes. Coming in at #10 is the final newcomer to the rankings, Matt ‘papamat25’ Iles, just edging out Sri ‘sri100k’ Sangannagari.
