PocketFives Rankings: SvZff Up to #4


Steven van Zadelhoff (pictured), aka SvZffon PocketFives, is up to #4 worldwide in our Online Poker Rankingsthis week. In mid-November, he won the PokerStars Sunday Warm-Up and Winamax High Roller on the same day for almost $100,000 total and just lapped $3.5 million in online tournament winnings.

Van Zadelhoff is the top-ranked PocketFiver in Malta whose largest cash came via a second place finish in an FTOPS event eight years ago. Since then, he has taken down the Sunday Million, Sunday Brawl, Sunday Warm-Up, Sunday Mulligan, and $109 Rebuy, just to name a few. This is the highest he has ever been ranked on PocketFives.

Sweden’s eisenhower1continues to dominate the PocketFives Rankings. In fact, his PLB score of 8,102 points is 600 more than the next closest player. eisenhower1 has been #1 since September 30 and won the PartyPoker Super High Roller last month for $20,000, continuing to add to his coffers. The same day, he finished second in an iPOPS event. There are four Swedes in the top seven of the Rankings this week.

Bernardo bedias Dias (pictured) moved up from #19 to #10, eight spots off his all-time high. He final tabled the Sunday Warm-Up over the weekend and is just $2,000 shy of hitting $4 million in online MTT winnings. Dias is Brazil’s top-ranked player and is approaching 7,000 tracked scores.

While we’re on the subject of Brazil, let’s talk about Pedro Madeira, who is known as gusma on PocketFives. The Brazilian rose 32 spots in the Rankings to land at #25 this week after taking down the PokerStars Sunday Second Chance and $109 Rebuy over the weekend. The two cashes were worth almost $50,000 combined and brought his career win total to 108.

After reentering his screen names, Mike telksTelker reentered the PocketFives Rankings at #38 in the world. He took third in the Super Tuesday in the beginning of November for $54,000 and just passed $7 million in winnings, the 20th PocketFiver to do so. Telker plays as munchenHBon PokerStars.
