RANKINGS: ‘C Darwin2’ Remains #1, ‘rolandbauer’ Joins Top 25

0
‘C Darwin2’ continues to pile up results to improve his grasp on the #1 ranking.

It seems like there’s nothing that can shake Sweden’s ‘C Darwin2’ from his perch atop the PocketFives Rankings. For the fifth straight week, ‘C Darwin 2’ holds down the #1 spot after a week that saw him add over 450 PLB points to his total thanks to a pair of wins.

Outlasting 46 other players in the partypoker $530 High Roller on November 4, ‘C Darwin2’ added $9,100 to his bankroll and 153.3 PLB points to his total. He followed that up on November 9 by taking down the PokerStars $215 Fat Thursday for $16,083 and 300.33 points. Those two wins helped increase his lead over #2-ranked Steven ‘SvZff’ van Zadelhoff to 1,156.79 points, the biggest gap between any two places in the top 25.

That gap would be much bigger had van Zadelhoff not picked up two qualifying cashes of his own. On November 5, the Malta-based Dutchman picked up $8,173 and 169.63 points for his third place finish in the partypoker Middleweight. Four days later he added $3,118 and 97.18 points for finishing runner-up in a PokerStars $109 Six Max Hyper Turbo.

Changes inside of the top 10 were scarce this week. For the second straight week, ‘Sheater’ and ‘veeea’ traded the #5 and #6 spots. The only player to move into the top 10 this week was former #1-ranked ‘Chris ‘Big Huni’ Hunichen. He jumped from #14 to #9 after picked up a combined 451.83 points from a win in the PokerStars $215 Fat Tuesday and a runner-up in the partypoker High Roller.

There was some re-shuffling in the rest of the top 25, but the only new name this belongs to the #1-ranked player in Austria. ‘rolandbauer’ picked up four qualifying cashes this week, highlighted by winning the partypoker Super High Roller for $55,809 and 484.77 points. He also finished runner-up in the PokerStars Super Tuesday for $41,988 and 361.36 points. The #12 ranking marks a career high for ‘rolandbauer’.

The only player to drop out of the Top 25 this week was Sweden’s ‘Ariados‘, who dropped from #9 all the way to #28.
