The results are in for September’s Monthly PocketFives Leaderboard, or Monthly PLB, and one Swede ran away with the win. Whereas other months have seen Monthly PLB champions crowned by a few dozen points, in September, eisenhower1took it down by a healthy 700 points over the second place player, Fresh_Oo_D.
eisenhower1 amassed 3,992 PLB Points in September, the most by a Monthly PLB winner since Nico PokerKaiser Fierro bagged 4,026 in September of last year. As it turns out, 3,992 points is the 10th largest PLB total ever in a month since we began awarding Monthly PLB titles in 2007. This is the first time eisenhower1 has won the award.
His largest score during September came via a win in a WCOOP $700 No Limit Hold’em Cubed event for $133,000 officially and 840 PLB Points. Also during the month, he took 29th in the WCOOP Main Event for $32,000 and finished second in the PokerStars Sunday Kickoff for $24,000.
eisenhower1 also found success in WCOOP Second Chance events last month, winning a $215 No Limit Hold’em Ultra Deep version for $22,000 and final tabling a $530 No Limit Hold’em Second Chance event for $21,000.
Lifetime, the Swede is up to $7.6 million in career online tournament winnings derived in part from almost 400 top-three finishes. Not surprisingly, eisenhower1 is the #1 player in the PocketFives Online Poker Rankings, a distinction he has held since September 30. This is the third Monthly PLB win for Sweden, which is home to 1,180 PocketFivers.
