MILESTONES: Andres ‘probirs’ Nemeth Hits $7 Million in Winnings

Each week members of the community hit career highs in money earned and positions in the Worldwide Top 100.

This week’s PocketFives Milestones features players hitting new marks by the millions and one of the world’s top-ranked players adding to his legacy. Andres ‘probirs’ Nemeth cracked the $7 million mark in career earnings and boosted his status as the #4 players in the world. Nemeth won a $250 Sunday tournament on January 7 for $37,529 to officially put himself over $7 million in lifetime earnings

Millionaires Add More Millions

The newest player to join the $4 million club is ‘dulek.’ Hailing from Papa New Guinea, ‘dulek’ used a win last weekend in a $100,000 guaranteed Warm Up event worth $38,070 to jump over the hump.

Two players made it over $3 million in career earnings this week. Egor ‘Egorrr’ Boriskin and Sami ‘LarsLuzak’ Kelopuro are both over the barrier in respective careers that span back to the late-2000s. Kelopuro pulled off a runner-up finish in the PokerStars Sunday $2,000 MTT, continuing his tradition of maximizing limited tournament volume.

Points Galore for PocketFivers

Alexandros ‘mexican222’ Kolonias achieved a career-high score in terms of PLB points. Kolonias earned 985.66 PLB points for taking the silver medal in a $2.2 million prize pool event on PokerStars. Nearly halfway through the month, Kolonias is challenging for a spot in the PLB Monthly Leaderboard.

Also earning an all-time best point total is Maszat ‘noirduck’ Marci. Marci shipped the Sunday Grand for $123,254 and 850.88 PLB points.

As a result of outlasting a 3,754 player field on PokerStars, Bernardo ‘betsoares’ Soares collected 612.70 PLB points. That total is the third-best among PocketFivers for the week.

New Heights Reached in the Rankings

A few players made large strides in the rankings and Guntis ‘lovefee’ Aleskins is tops among that group. The #1 player in Latvia is a career-high 17th in the Worldwide Rankings. Aleskins could be featured again in the Milestones soon enough as he is less than $100,000 away from reaching $4 million in earnings.

Jonathan ‘proudflop’ Proudfoot advanced up to #23, giving him a new career-best. Proudfoot won the partypoker High Roller on January 10 for an even 200 points, allowing him to ascend to where he stands now. In the poker-hungry United Kingdom, Proudfoot is fourth overall. Last week, Proudfoot jumped from #34 to #28 and is working his way higher with each week.
