0
'C Darwin2' surpasses 11,000 PLB points yet again in route to retaining his #1 ranking.

The name at the top of the PocketFives Rankings has not changed at all in 2018, but one of the game’s best online tournament players just put together a week of big scores that could change all of that very soon.

European‘ jumped from #8 to #3 after a week that saw him win two PokerStars Turbo Series events as well as the PokerStars Sunday High Roller for just over $152,000 in earnings and 1,525 PLB points. He also picked up 246 other points and now sits 1,770.95 points behind #1-ranked ‘C Darwin2‘.

‘C Darwin2’ didn’t just rest on his laurels this past week though. The Swedish grinder won a partypoker KO Series event for $18,928 and 333.17 points and a PokerStars Daily 500 for $12,932 and 242.9 points. He took over the #1 spot on December 30, 2017 and has maintained a PLB score over 10,000 the entire time.

#2-ranked ‘lena900‘ seemed did everything he could to catch ‘C Darwin2’ this past week. He won a partypoker KO Series event, a PokerStars Turbo Series event and PokerStars Daily 500 to add 1,535.72 points to his total. He’s not 919.81 points behind ‘C Darwin2’

Johannes ‘Greenstone25’ Korsar moved into the top 10 this week after finishing runner-up in the PokerStars Sunday High Roller for $53,093 and 388.08 points and then won the 888poker $50,000 Volcano for $15,008 and 257.11 points.

Another Swede also moved up into the top 10. ‘Ariados’ had three qualifying cashes this week, highlighted by a win in the PokerStars Turbo Series that added $63,468 to his earnings and 652.23 points.

The only player to drop out of the top 10 was former #1-ranked Patrick ‘pleno’ Leonard. He fell from #9 to #16. There were no players who dropped out of the top 25 as the players simply shuffled positions from the previous week.
