RANKINGS: ‘Greenstone25’ and ‘josef_shvejk’ Invade the Top 10

0

Johannes ‘Greenstone25’ Korsar and ‘josef_shvejk’ jumped into the top 10 of the PocketFives Rankings this week while ‘C Darwin2’ remained #1.

PocketFives Rankings saw no change this week, but two players cracked the top 10 – one of them for the first time in his career.

Russia’s ‘josef_shvejk‘ moved from #13 to #8, marking his career-best ranking, while Sweden’s Johannes ‘Greenstone25’ Korsar climbed from #12 to #7 – just three spots off of his previous best.

After consistently moving up the rankings over the past several weeks, ‘josef_shvejk’ had two qualifying cashes this past week, an eighth place finish in a partypoker High Roller on December 19 for $3,233 and 111.41 PLB points and then he beat out 233 other players to win the $1,050 Super Tuesday on PokerStars for $46,687 and 500 points.

Korsar’s move comes thanks to a Sunday to remember. The Swedish grinder won the $2,100 PokerStars Sunday High Roller for $59,180 and then finished third in the PokerStars Sunday 500 for $19,338 and 229.89. The next day he finished third in the PokerStars Daily 500 for $7,337 and 122.96 points.

With those two moving into the top 10, two had to drop out. Connor ‘blanconegro’ Drinan dropped from #9 to #17 and ‘rolandbauer‘ moved from #10 to #12.

Former #1 Fabrizio ‘SixthSense19’ Gonzalez now finds himself sitting just outside of the top 10 after moving up from #15 to #11. A week after picking up three wins on partypoker, Gonzalez hit the winner’s circle just once, beating out 28 other players in the $500 High Roller Turbo on partypoker to win $7,186 and 122.47 points.

Brazil’s Renato Almeida ‘bauruzito’ Prado Valentim moved back into the top 25 this week, going from #26 to #21 and the #1-ranked player in Thailand, Jordan ‘JWPRODIGY’ Westmorland went from #28 to #24.

Dropping out of the Top 25 this week was Chris ‘Apotheosis’ Kruk, who went from #22 to #26, and Germany’s ‘nilsef‘, who fell from #25 to #29.
