RANKINGS: Fabrizio ‘SixthSenSe19’ Gonzalez Holds Off ‘lena900’


Fabrizio ‘SixthSenSe19’ Gonzalez didn’t have a single cash big enough to earn any PLB points this past week, but he still stayed #1.

After three straight weeks with a change at the number one spot in the PocketFives Rankings there’s finally some stability as Fabrizio ‘SixthSenSe19’ Gonzalez held on to the #1 spot for the second straight week.

Making Gonzalez’s accomplishment even more impressive, he stayed on top even though he had a week with no cashes big enough to add to his PLB score. Gonzalez cashed just four time this week and failed to make any final tables. He did fall below the 10,000 point barrier though and now sits just 193.63 points ahead of his nearest competitor.

Sweden’s ‘lena900‘ maintains his hold on the #2 spot and made up some ground on Gonzalez in the process. ‘Lena900’ won the partypoker High Roller on February 14 for $13,875 and 235.58 points, the PokerStars $109 Saturday Special for $4,370/185.14 and then runner-up in the partypoker Six Max High Roller on Sunday for $10,123/164.94. All told the Swedish grinder added 585.66 points to his total.

Another Swede, ‘C Darwin2‘, held on to the #3 spot thanks to a runner-up finish in the 888 Quarterback for $7,967/148.26 and then won the PokerStars Hot $55 on Thursday for $8,221/223.94. He trails Gonzalez by 580.33 but has a 1,865.1 point lead on the rest of the field.

Alex ‘alexd2’ Dimitrov was the last player in the top 10 to hold onto their spot. Dimitrov, who has been as high as #2 during his career, stayed at #4.

Anybody who has followed the rankings for the past two years won’t be surprised to learn that two Swedes made big moves this week. ‘inhoo‘ moved from #8 to #5 and he’s now within striking distance of his all-time high of #3. Right behind him was Andreas ‘r4ndomr4gs’ Berggren who went from #9 to #6.

Former #1-ranked Nicolas ‘PokerKaiser’ Fierro dropped from #5 to #7 and German ‘pappadogg‘ went from #9 to #6.

The only new name in the top ten this is Russian Alexandr ‘Blackk’ Trofimov. He began his week by finishing runner-up in the PokerStars Super Tuesday for $47,567 and 392.54. He then posted another runner-up finish, this time in a PokerStars $109 for $2,968/94.83 before finally breaking through and posting a win in the PokerStars $109 on February 16 for $4,582/154.18. Those three cashes added 641.55 points to his total and moved him up from #14 to #10.

The only player to drop out of the top 10 was Sweden’s ‘Ariados‘ who went from #10 to #11.
