RANKINGS: ‘lena900’ and Five Other Swedes Dominate Top 10


The PocketFives Rankings have long been a playground for Swedish players. Just last week ‘lena900‘ moved back into the top spot for the fifth time in his career and now there’s six Swedes in the top 10 with another two knocking on the door.

Sitting on top certainly seems to serve ‘lena900‘ well. On June 6 he took down a partypoker High Roller for $20,422 and 322.49 PLB points. While it was a big score, it was the only one big enough to add to his total this week. He now sits 353.1 points ahead of the rest of the field – including the the three Swedes directly behind him.

Staying at #2 despite no PLB points earned this past week was ‘inhoo‘. There’s just 78.35 points between him and ‘C Darwin2′ who moved from #4 to #3 this week. The former #1-ranked player had four big scores this week inlcuding a win in the partypoker Heavyweight Title Fight Warm Up for $20,427/358.33 and a partypoker High Roller win for $13,059/237.7. He also finished seventh in the partypoker Heavyweight Title Fight for $4,700/155.56 and runner-up in the 888poker Volcano for $10,085/160.69.

Ariados‘ fell from #3 to #4 despite a runner-up finish in the Winamax Highroller for $13,663/171.88 and a fourth-place finish in the partypoker High Roller on June 6 for $8,043 adn 140.37.

There was no change in spots 5 – 9 but Johannes ‘Greenstone25’ Korsar jumped from #14 to #10 thanks to his win in the partypoker Super High Roller for $52,437 and 421.31 points.

Korsar is the sixth Swede in the top 10 but there may be more soon. ‘Sheater‘ is sitting at #11, just 14.78 points behind Korsar while ‘DeathbyQuads‘ is at #15.
