PocketFives Rankings: prebzzz Leaps to #3 Worldwide


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:
