PocketFives Rankings: ‘DeathbyQuads’ Up to #8


The top five of the rankings this week

Swedes continue to dominate the top of the PocketFives Rankings and this week, another Swede played his way into the top 10. Debuting at #8, his highest ranking ever, ‘DeathbyQuads‘ is the fifth player from Sweden in the top ten worldwide.

The volume-driven ‘DeathbyQuads’ had eight cashes on Tuesday, the largest of which was worth $11,000 for finishing second in the PokerStars Big $109. In fact, he has just three cashes over $40,000 for his career despite having over $1.5 million in winnings. Two of those three cashes came late last year, a WCOOP third place finish for $49,000 and a Sunday Warm-Up third place finish for $42,000.

‘DeathByQuads’ moved up five spots this week and has 6,500 PLB Points. Although he’s almost 1,000 points shy of first place, he’s only 219 away from fifth and could easily make that leap next week.

The top spot still belongs to Sweden’s ‘C Darwin2‘, who has 7,457 points and has been the #1 ranked player since February 10. He finished sixth in a PartyPoker Powerfest event over the weekend for $10,000 and is quickly approaching $4 million in career online winnings. Interestingly, his last tracked win was on February 7, but since then he has amassed almost 20 top-10 finishes. He is 600 points ahead of second place.

Speaking of second place, England’s Oscar ‘MendaLerenda’ Serradell moved up from #7 to #2, his highest position ever, after winning the PokerStars $12,000 Guaranteed on Tuesday, just one week after taking down the 888 Monsoon. He has 338 top-three finishes and is almost at $4 million in winnings for his career. Serradell finished second in a TCOOP event earlier this year for $63,000, his fifth largest score all-time.

Outside of the top 10, don’t look now, but Chris ‘moorman1’ Moorman is back in the top 20. The most successful player in online poker history, Moorman moved up 13 spots after winning the 888 Late Night Crocodile and PokerStars $109 Rebuy on March 3 for almost $15,000 total. Moorman just passed $13 million in career winnings, $4 million more than the next closest player, and has a whopping 25 PocketFives Triple Crowns, four more than anybody else.

England’s ‘woody1234321‘ moved up 18 spots to #23 after finishing second in the PokerStars Super Tuesday last week for $74,000. He’s 10 spots off his all-time high and is $34,000 away from hitting $3 million in winnings for his career. He’s the top-ranked player in the English county of Norfolk.

After reentering his screen names, another Brit, ‘Bunkervogel‘, re-joined the top 100 at #65. He took second in the PokerStars Bigger $109 in January for $31,000, his second largest score to date, and has $1.1 million in career winnings. ‘Bunkervogel’ is the 11th-ranked player in the UK and #1 in Brighton and Hove.

Latvia’s ‘ex6tence‘ re-entered the top 100 at #70. He’s the top-ranked player in his home country and final tabled the PokerStars Sunday $109 Rebuy over the weekend for almost $10,000. He has over 50 in the money finishes already in March and just hit $3 million in cashes all-time. You can find him on PokerStars under the moniker ‘ex6tenceLV‘.

Also re-entering the top 100 was former #1 ranked Mike ‘telks’ Telker, who can be found at #72. Telker took third in the Sunday Second Chance over the weekend to boost his career winnings north of $7.1 million, which puts him in the top 20 all-time. Telker is a longtime member of the online poker community and plays on PokerStars as ‘munchenHB‘. He was last ranked #1 in December 2011.

Finally, Tom ‘Jabracada’ Hall entered the top 100 at #76, his best showing ever. From the riverside town of Shrewsbury in England, Hall has won three online MTTs this month, including the PokerStars Hot $82 for almost $10,000. Those three raised his career win total to 168. Hall, a 27-year-old, has $2.1 million in cashes lifetime.
