RANKINGS: ‘C Darwin2’ Continues Dominant Run at #1

0
Two members of the top 10 surpassed $9 million in lifetimes earnings this week.

How dominant is Swedish online poker pro ‘C Darwin2‘ right now? Well, following a week where he picked up zero PLB points, he still leads the PocketFives Rankings by 2,637.71 points over his next closest competitor. He’s now been the #1-ranked player in the world four 14 weeks and appears poised to put together the longest consecutive reign at #1 since Calvin ‘cal42688’ Anderson went 23 weeks uninterrupted from September 2012 through February 2013.

That next closest competitor, Andres ‘probirs’ Nemeth, actually moved up from #3 to #2 this week after picking up 505.96 points after winning the PokerStars $2,100 Sunday High Roller. He also had two qualifying cashes on partypoker for an additional 243.11 points.

Swapping places with Nemeth was Sweden’s ‘lena900‘. His fall came even after he picked up three qualifying cashes for 658.33, highlighted by a win in the Winamax W Series PLO Championship for 268.49 points.

There was only other move inside of the top 10 this past week as ‘hellohellohello‘ and ‘European‘ switched the #4 and #5 positions. In fact, there was very little movement inside of the top 25 at all. The only player to work their way back into the top 25 was ‘rolandbauer’. The Austrian went from #29 to #22 cashed just six times, but three of them were qualifying cashes. He finished second in the partypoker Sunday Bounty Hunter for 300.89 points, seventh in the partypoker Super Sunday Main Event for 220 points and then fourth in the PokerStars Big $109 on Sunday for 98.01 points.

Pim ‘joppiesaus‘ de Goede fell out of the top 25, landing at #26.
