RANKINGS: ‘lena900’ Back on Top after ‘girafganger7’ Drops Out


Sweden’s ‘lena900‘ is back on top of the PocketFives Rankings after ‘girafganger7’ withdrew his name from the Rankings this past week. This marks the fifth time that ‘lena900’ has held down the number one spot in his career. ‘Girafganger7’ spent just one week holding down the top spot.

Despite cashing 14 times this past week, none were big enough to add to his PLB points total and the race for #1 is as close as it has been in a long time. ‘lena900’ leads #2 ‘inhoo‘ by 229.28 points and #3 ‘Ariados’ by 320.23 points.

‘inhoo’ closed the gap slightly thanks to a win in a PokerStars $109 Six Max Hyper Turbo NLHE event on May 30 for $4,307 and 148 points. It was his only qualifying cash this week. Meanwhile, ‘Ariados‘ was unable to record a single qualifying cash.

C Darwin2‘ had just one cash big enough this past week to help out his PLB score. He finished second to Andras ‘probirs’ Nemeth in the PokerStars Sunday Grand PLO for $19,532 and 224.7 points.

The run of Swedes at the top of the Rankings stops at #5 where former #1-ranked Fabrizio ‘SixthSenSe19’ Gonzalez resides. The Uruguayan had a solid week, taking down the partypoker Middleweight event on May 28 for $16,700/316.23 and then finished second in the partypoker Super High Roller for $7,840/138.27.

Andreas ‘r4ndomr4gs’ Berggren moved back into the top 10 this week, climbing from #11 to #8 thanks largely to his runner-up finish in the PokerStars Super Tuesday on May 30 for $49,448 and 400.23 points.
