It’s Wednesday, which means the PocketFives Poker Rankingshave been updated. After moving into the #1 spot for the first time ever last week, norfair18 is still the winner in the clubhouse this week with 7,489 PLB Points, 68 ahead of second place.
Moving up two spots this week to #10 in the world, his highest ranking ever, is hellohellohello(pictured). He has won five tournaments in the last ten days, including the PokerStars$109 Cubed for $20,000. He’s the owner of $1.9 million in career online tournament winnings and plays as hello_totti on PokerStars and Full Tilt.
There wasn’t much movement in the top 10 this week, but potentially joining the group in the coming weeks is Brazil’s Yuri Martins, who moved up ten spots to #17. He won the Sunday Second Chance over the weekend for $40,000, which amazingly is just his tenth largest score to date. He finished second in last year’s WCOOP Main Event for over $1.2 million officially.
One of the most notable jumps of the week inside the top 100 went to Portugal’s Sergio trujustrus Cabrera, who rose from #80 to #26, his highest career ranking. He won last week’s Super Tuesday for a blistering $103,000 and 784 PLB Points to bring his career total to just south of $1.6 million. Cabrera is #1 in Portugal.
Canada’s justin ouimette(pictured), who has been on fire this year, rose 39 spots to #35 in the world, his best showing ever. He won the 888 Poker Mega Deep over the weekend for $34,000 and final tabled the Super Tuesday the week before that for $13,000. He won the Full Tilt Sunday Brawl two weeks ago for the second time this year and has deservingly been one of the fastest risers in the Rankings.
Finally this week, we wanted to single out Scott Aggro SantosMargereson, who reentered the top 100 at #38, nine spots shy of his best ranking ever. Margereson was the big winner in this weekend’s Sunday Million, cashing for almost $200,000 and raking 1,130 PLB Points. He won the PartyPoker Daily Major this month as well and is the #5 ranked player in the UK.
