Despite putting in next-to-no volume in November, online crusher and World Series of Poker bracelet winner Joe ‘JoeMomasNuts’ Mitchell retained his spot atop the Nevada online rankings.
Mitchell can afford to take a little time off after racking up the scores straight through the end of October. A final table machine, in October alone, Mitchell managed to find himself at 20 final tables, easily over half of the time he cashed. Having recently surpassed the $500,000 lifetime earnings mark, Mitchell holds a comfortable lead in PLB points amassing 2,334.91.
In November, Mitchell only notched a single trackable PLB cash, back on November 12, and it shouldn’t be a surprise, but that lone tournament also found him taking a seat at the final table. Despite not having access to the biggest tournaments in the world, being a Nevada grinder, Mitchell’s achievements through the summer and fall still have him ranked as a Top 1000 player in the world.
Trailing Mitchell, as he has for roughly the past month, is Bobby ‘bcm4924’ McLawhorn. As previously noted, McLawhorn had held the #1 ranking in Nevada from March through October. However. in another instance of past results holding up a current bout of low volume McLawhorn either has been on a massive cooler or simply hasn’t been logging on in the last month, as he has yet to record a qualified cash since early October. With a talent like McLawhorn, it’s very likely the latter as he’s taken this kind of break before.
Not standing idly by is #3-ranked Jed ‘JCHAK’ Hoffman who finds himself only 32.08 PLB points behind McLawhorn. He gained some serious ground this month with his victory in Event #12 of the WSOP.com NVPC ($50 No Limit Hold’em R&A) for $2,530 and his third-place finish in Event #16 NVPC High Roller for $6,923. In total Hoffman brought in nearly $14,000 in November.
While Hoffman is applying pressure on McLawhorn. He’s being pressured by the #4-ranked player in Nevada, ‘Power’, who is looking to climb the ranks, trailing Hoffman by 132 PLB points. ‘Power’, putting in healthy volume throughout all of November and the early part of December, has managed to bink three 4-figure scores including a victory in the WSOP.com $20,000 GTD Weekly Sunday for $5,700.
The top five in Nevada is rounded out by Jake ‘Wolf_51’ Didonato who, in late November, took down the $30,000 BIG Deal on WSOP.com for $9,600 which also ranks his largest PLB point total for the period at 173.21.
Daniel ‘voff’ Deveaujoins the Top 10 this month, coming in at #8, after posting four 4-figure scores during November. Joining Deveau in climbing into the Top 10 is ’nani0713’ who jumped three places from #12 to his new position at #9.
Despite all the movement in positions around him, Jonathan ‘Jonblvze’ Raberheld fast in the #10 spot, due in part to a pair of victories on WSOP.com in the last week of November.
