Fierro is closing in on $7 million in online tournament winnings and currently has the ninth highest cash total of anyone on PocketFives. Martins, meanwhile, finished second in the WCOOP Main Event in late September for a massive payday and has a pair of five-figure scores since then.

London’s Vicente Delgado Zamorano (pictured), or vicenfish, rose from #11 to #7 in the world this week thanks to a runner-up finish in last week’s Super Tuesday for a commanding $81,000. He is the top-ranked player in London and #2 in the UK.

Also cracking the top 10 this week was jbrown8777, who moved up from #22 to #8. He won the Super Tuesday the week vicenfish took second and came away with a $111,000 payday. He’s up to $2.3 million in online tournament scores and was ranked as high as #6 on PocketFives earlier this year.

Brazil’s joaomathiaswas the third and final new entrant into the top 10 this week, settling at #9. He won the Full Tilt Super Sized Sunday over the weekend for $31,000, one of five five-figure scores he has had this month. Over the years, he has over 400 top-three finishes.

Outside of the top 10, we had three players debut in the top 100 in the 60s, a fairly impressive showing. The first is PlayaPlz (pictured), who came in at #63. He won the Sunday Storm on October 19 for $31,000 officially and is the #5 player in Costa Rica.

Two spots behind PlayaPlz on PocketFives is EmilMaTTsson, who is ranked #65. He just received his $1 million cash badge and took down a PartyPokerPokerfest tournament in recent days for $39,000. Two more spots down the worldwide leaderboard you’ll find Laurynas LaurisL91 Levinskas, who entered the top 100 at #67 on the strength of a victory in the PokerStars Saturday Six-Max, one of five tracked wins he has had this month.
