Fabrizio ‘SixthSenSe19’ Gonzalez has now been the #1-ranked online poker player in the world but in the last week the two players right behind him, Alex ‘alexd2’ Dimitrov and ‘C Darwin2‘, continue to move closer to the top spot.

While Gonzalez and Dimitrov continue to hold down the top two spots, both did so without having recorded any scores over the past week that added to their PLB score. Gonzalez finished ITM just nine times while Dimitrov, known for putting in a higher volume than any other player in the top ten, cashed just 12 times with none of them earning more than 62 PLB points.

Dimitrov closed the gap without scoring any additional PLB points as some of Gonzalez’s older cashes fell off his score.

Meanwhile, Sweden’s ‘C Darwin’ however moved closer to Gonzalez thanks to two big scores. The first came on December 18 when he finished 11th in PokerStars Sunday Warm-Up for $3,263 and 148.19 PLB points. That same day he final-tabled the partypoker Six-Max Turbo High Roller for $6,240/117.96.

Fellow Swede ‘lena900‘ maintained the #4 spot despite not recording a single cash all week. Brazilian Joao Mathias ‘joaomathias’ Baumgarten managed to record 37 cashes, but only one of them earned him enough points to add to his total. Baumgarten won the PokerStars Big $55 on December 14 for $9,734/243.52.

Andras ‘probirs’ Nemeth and Anton ‘AnteSvante’ Wigg held on to the #6 and #7 spots respectively to leave the top seven spots unchanged from last week. Sweden’s Andreas ‘r4ndomr4gs’ Berggren moved up from #11 to #8 based on two wins on December 15. He won the PokerStars.com Hot $33 for $4,294/160.34 and the Thursday Full KO on PokerStars.fr for $5,145/130.95.

Johannes ‘Greenstone25’ Korsar was the only player to fall out of the top ten. Korsar went from #9 to #12.
