In fact, Fierro’s 14 weeks are tied for the eighth longest run ever.

Fierro has a 500-point lead over second place in the Rankings this week and continues to churn out impressive results. Since the Rankings were recalculated last Wednesday, the Chilean won the WinamaxHigh Roller for $6,200 and took down the 888 Poker Mega Deep for another $22,000. The two cashes were worth almost 500 PLB Points, the metric used to determine the Rankings, combined.
There were no new entrants into the top 10 worldwide this week. Inside the top 10, Sweden’s eisenhower1moved up from #8 to #4 after taking down the PokerStars Hot $55 Turbo on Tuesday for $10,000. Over the weekend, he won the site’s $55 NLHE Turbo Re-Entry and raked in $8,500. eisenhower1 was ranked #2 on our site in 2013.
Outside of the top 10, a familiar face in the online poker world – Ami UhhMee Barer (pictured) – moved up from #49 to #26 after finishing second in the Bigger $55 for $23,000. He also has four wins since mid-July and is $95,000 shy of hitting $7 million for his career. If he were to hit $7 million, he’d become only the 17th PocketFiver to do so.
Finally this week, we wanted to single out Canada’s Justin Ouimette, who moved up 35 spots to settle at #55. He’s headed back up the Rankings after two wins since July 30 along with three other top-three finishes. Ouimette calls Windsor, Ontario home and is the top-ranked player in the border town.
Here are the top 10 players in the Rankings this week along with the PLB score for each:
1. PokerKaiser – 7,477 points
2. aguskb – 6,957 points
