RANKINGS: Michael ‘Gags30’ Gagliano Still #1 in New Jersey

Michael Gagliano is #1 in New Jersey once again .

Michael ‘Gags30’ Gagliano’s run as #1 in New Jersey’s Online Poker Rankings continues for another month. Gagliano put together a February that included five major wins. The rest of the New Jersey podium fell in the line behind Gagliano and the middle of the pack went through a jumble.

The largest of Gagliano’s wins came in the 888NJ New Jersey Poker Championship $80,000 guaranteed Sunday Spectacular. The $350 buy-in MTT attracted 141 runners. Gagliano came out on top to win the $22,249 first-place prize. Rounding out the podium in the event were PocketFivers ‘sri100k’ and Angel ‘ChromeKing’ Lopez.

Gagliano also notched wins in the February 18 PokerStarsNJ Sunday High Roller and the NJPC $25,000 guaranteed Big 500.

Back in the second-place position is Yong ‘ykwon17’ Kwon. The former NJ #1 put together a month that included four wins. Kwon also finished second in the February 18 Sunday High Roller won by Gagliano.

David ‘dehhhhh’ Coleman resides in third place for the third consecutive poll. As of press time, Coleman is less than $5,000 from eclipsing $1 million in earnings in New Jersey. Coleman will be the fifth player to hit that mark joining Kwon, Jeremy ‘Jermz’ Danger, Michael ‘JohnnnyDrama’ Haberman, and Fred ‘biggdaddy’ Ferrell.

From completely out of the rankings sphere and now all the way up to #4 is Mike ‘lav519’ Lavenburg. Nightly tournaments are where Lavenburg did his damage in February. Lavenburg won two partypokerNJ $10,000 guaranteed tournaments and one on PokerStarsNJ. The wins combined to earn Lavenburg a shade over $9,000.

Daniel ‘centrfieldr’ Lupo added four more wins to his portfolio. Lupo is off to a great start in the PokerStarsNJ Turbo Series win two victories. The $200 Hyper Turbo 8-Max gold medal earned Lupo $4,661.

Up from #8 to #6 is Andrew ‘Mergulas’ Glauberg. February proved to be busy for Glauberg, who strung up nine podium finishes and three wins. The NJPC ‘Play Your Way’ $25,000 guaranteed win booked Glauberg a smooth $8,000.

Danger dropped from #5 to #7 but still managed to collect two wins. The last Sunday of February brought a major score to Danger. ‘PokerJermz’ shipped the Sunday $40,000 guaranteed on partypokerNJ for $9,160.

Seven wins encompassed John ‘Selurznug’ Cosgrove’s month. Cosgrove won two NJPC events and earned a combined a $7,000 for his efforts.

Ryan ‘shipthesherb’ Hohner is into the top-10 for the first time in a few months. The Borgata Winter Poker Open Event #1 runner-up picked up three wins and earned seven additional top-three finishes. The best of these results was a runner-up in the February 18 Sunday Special where Hohner claimed $7,087.

The 10th spot belongs to Michael ‘JohnnnyDrama’ Haberman. The fifth member of the $1 million club crossed the seven-figure mark at the start of the month. Haberman continued his consistency with four wins in February.
