PocketFives Rankings: StrungOut1 About to Be #1


It’s Wednesday, which means the PocketFives Rankingshave been recalculated. Moving up from #12 to #4 this week and knocking on the door of the top spot worldwide is Canada’s StrungOut1. He just hit $4 million in career online tournament winnings and finished fourth in the Super Tuesday in March for $48,000.

Ten days ago, StrungOut1 took second in the Sunday Supersonic for $37,000. The #4 ranking is his best showing ever and he is the top-ranked PocketFives member from Canada. He has logged a blistering 7,250 in the money finishes, 184 of which (2.5%) are for wins.

We had four new entrants into the top 10 this week, the most in quite some time. Climbing from #14 to #6 was Denmark’s sifosis, who is currently sitting at his highest ranking ever. He has over $3.1 million in winnings on PokerStarsalone and is the top-ranked player in the Denmark poker community.

The third new entrant into the top 10 worldwide on PocketFives was x_zola25, who moved up four spots to #9. This is his highest position ever in the Rankings and the Dane is coming off several big scores, including a win in the Sunday Second Chance for $38,000 on April 19 and a win in the Bigger $109 two weeks later for another $43,000. He is a few thousand dollars shy of $1.4 million in career online tournament winnings.

Finally, Brazil’s bedias(pictured) moved up 15 spots from #25 to #10, his best placement ever. He has four five-figure cashes already in May: a final table in the Sunday Supersonic for $32,000, a runner-up finish in the Full Tilt Sunday Brawl for $17,000, a Super Tuesday final table for $12,000, and a $265 NLHE Knockout win for $14,000.
