Ian ‘APokerJoker2’ Steinman Widens Lead in Nevada Rankings


Ian ‘APokerJoker2’ Steinman widened his lead in the Nevada rankings

After taking hold of top spot in the Nevada rankings in February, Ian ‘APokerJoker2’ Steinman made sure there was no changing of the guard in March.

After holding down a 233-point lead last month over second place, Steinman widened his lead to over 500 points. He now sits with 2,393 points as the state’s top-ranked player.

Steinman had 54 in the money finishes in March, nine of which were wins. Seven days into the month, he took down the WSOP.com $10,000 Guaranteed Sunday Reloader for $4,100, his largest cash of the 31-day stanza and his fourth largest overall. Eighteen days later, he found the winner’s circle of the site’s $3,000 Guaranteed Nightly No Limit Hold’em and put back another $1,800, his second largest payday of the month.

The nine wins in March raised Steinman’s career total to 60. He is about $10,000 shy of hitting $100,000 in career winnings on WSOP.com, the lone regulated online poker room in Nevada, and calls Carson City home. At the end of the month, he was seen at the WPT DeepStacks event in Reno and won the $3,000 Guaranteed from his hotel room. Must be nice.

Second place in the Nevada rankings belongs to ‘ChaosTheory‘, who has 1,890 points. He logged two dozen in the money finishes in March, although no cash hit four-figures. His two tracked wins came in the WSOP.com $800 Guaranteed No Limit Hold’em Deep Stack on March 29 and in a Mini Fest tournament eight days before that.

‘ChaosTheory’ now has $107,000 in lifetime winnings on WSOP.com and is the top-ranked online poker player in Henderson. His largest Nevada cash came last year in the Sunday Reloader on WSOP.com for $3,800.

wsopfreezer‘ moved up one spot in the Nevada rankings to #3. He trails ‘ChaosTheory’ by only 40 points and landed in the money 27 times during the month of March, four of which were first place finishes. ‘wsopfreezer’ won the WSOP.com $3,000 Guaranteed Nightly No Limit Hold’em twice last month for over $4,000 total to zoom his way up the leaderboard and now has 37 tracked wins. He officially passed $100,000 in winnings on WSOP.com last month.

Michael ‘Freakinpoet76’ Mulvania was up three spots to #5, his highest position ever. He amazingly cashed almost 100 times in March and had a whopping 14 wins. He opened the month by winning the WSOP.com $2,000 Guaranteed No Limit Hold’em Deep Stack for $1,100 and closed it by taking second in the $3,000 Guaranteed Nightly No Limit Hold’em for another $1,300.

Mulvania has 331 top-three finishes over the years and, if his volume continues, he could be a major threat to break into the top three next month. He has $121,000 in career winnings on WSOP.com and is the #3 ranked player in Las Vegas.

Bobby ‘bcm4924’ McLawhorn moved up two spots to #7 on the strength of three four-figure cashes, including two wins in $3,000 Guaranteed tournaments for $1,700 total. McLawhorn also won the WSOP.com $2,000 Guaranteed No Limit Hold’em Deep Stack. He now has 109 tracked wins and $127,000 in earnings on WSOP.com, where he plays under the user name ‘bcmclawh’.

Daniel ‘voff’ Deveau entered the top 10 at #10 after taking down the $3,000 Guaranteed Nightly No Limit Hold’em for $2,200, his largest score of March. He also finished second and third in the same tournament last month and has 1,273 PLB Points, about half of what Steinman has, but over 100 more than 11th place. Deveau is over $1 million in career winnings online, much of which came on Full Tilt when that site serviced the US market.
