PocketFives Rankings: prebzzz Leaps to #3 Worldwide

0

It’s Wednesday, which means the PocketFives Online Poker Rankingswere refreshed. Just like every week, we had several players make waves, including prebzzz, who entered his screen names and consequently jumped to #3 in the world, a new all-time high. He has $2.5 million in career winnings and is the top-ranked Norwegian on our site.

prebzzz final tabled the 888Whale over the weekend for $13,000, about the same amount as he received for finishing second in the PokerStars.fr Sunday Uppercut one week earlier. In late September, the Norway poker community member won the PokerStars $109 No Limit Hold’em Cubed for $20,000.

prebzzz has 6,802 PLB Points, the measure used to determine the Rankings, but still trails top-ranked eisenhower1 by 1,200. Speaking of eisenhower1, the Swede continues to churn out solid scores. He won the 888 Crocodile on October 18 for $16,000 and banked $133,000 following a WCOOP $700 No Limit Hold’em Cubed win in September.

Another Swede, Yaya24, moved up seven spots to crack the top 10 at #5. This is the highest he has ever been ranked and comes in part after winning a PartyPoker Pokerfest High Roller Event for $32,000 on Monday. On October 11, he made the final table of the PokerStars Sunday Million for $4,000 more.

Swedes comprise half of the top eight spots in the Rankings and eight Swedes appear in the top 20 worldwide. Accordingly, Sweden has a healthy lead in our Country Poker Rankings and has a combined PLB score of its top 20 players of 108,068 PLB Points, which is 5,000 more than the second-ranked UK.

Australia’s krasark climbed 37 spots in the Rankings to #47 in the world after finishing third in the Sunday Million over the weekend and cashed for $127,000. The week before, krasark won the PokerStars Sunday $109 Rebuy, so he has been on a tear as of late. The Aussie passed $3 million in career online tournament scores two weeks ago.

A former #1 ranked player, norfair18 (pictured), reappeared in the top 100 this week at #66. He was last ranked #1 in May and took down the PokerStars $215 No Limit Hold’em Turbo earlier this month for $20,000. He final tabled last week’s Super Tuesday and is quickly closing in on $2 million in online MTT scores.

Finally this week, we wanted to highlight RoccoGe, who reentered the top 100 at #72. This Italian has six wins since October 15, raising his career total to 132, and he plays as sephirot88 on PokerStars. He was ranked as high as #18 on PocketFives last year.

Here are the top 10 players in the Rankings this week along with the PLB score for each:

1. eisenhower1– 8,024 points
