0

‘C Darwin’ booked a big win this week and held on to the top spot.

There was very little change in the top five spots in the PocketFives Rankings this past week, with ‘C Darwin2’ continuing to hold down the top spot thanks to more than 10,000 PLB points. Steven ‘SvZff’ van Zadelhoff hasn’t moved from #2 and wasn’t able to improve much on the 800-point gap between his current position and #1.

‘C Darwin2’, who has held down the #1 spot for 14 of the last 15 weeks, won the $2,600 buy-in partypoker Super High Roller this week for $52,246 and 469.04 points. Now more than a month removed from his PokerStars WCOOP Main Event victory, van Zadelhoff continues to collect qualifying scores. The Malta resident collected four cashes for 765.58 points.

The only change in the top five came at #5 as Andreas ‘r4ndomr4gs’ Berggren moved from #6 to #5 while ‘veeea’ dropped from #5 to #6. The real movement began at #9 as ‘Ariados’ jumped from #13 to #9 after three cashes on partypoker for a total of 423.03 points. Roman ‘Romeopro’ Romanovsky moved up one spot from #11 to #10 while former #1-ranked Chris ‘Big Huni’ Hunichen dropped from #9 to #11. Fabrizio ‘SixthSense19’ Gonzalez fell from #10 to #13.

The #2-ranked player in Russia, ‘josef_shvejk’ debuted at #16 this week thanks to three qualifying cashes. Sandwiched in between final-tabling the PokerStars $109 on October 22 and a $530 buy-in partypoker High Roller on October 24, ‘josef_shvejk’ won the partypoker Heavyweight Title Fight on October 22 for $31,639 and 425.44 points.

There was plenty of shuffling in spots #11 – #25 with all but four spots changing positions. The only player to drop out of the Top 25 was Russia’s ‘NoPlanB’ who went from #25 to #26.
