RANKINGS: ‘pappadogg’ Stays Top Dog in Czech Republic

0
The Czech Republic continues to be a hotbed for poker action, both live and online.

The Czech Republic is up and coming in the live poker world. King’s Casino is the host of Europe’s biggest events and the upcoming partypokerLIVE MILLIONS event. Online poker is the lifeblood of the Czech Republic’s poker success and the top-10 is full of names familiar to the peak of PocketFives rankings.

The #1 player on the list is ‘pappadogg.’ The lion avatar reached an all-time of #6 in the Worldwide Rankings in 2017. ‘pappadogg’ does not put in as much as volume as they once did to reach that rankings peak but are starting to pick up the pace at the start of 2018.

Miroslav ‘Nethos’ Forman comes in at #2. Forman plays the mid-stakes and low-stakes tournaments on PokerStars and struck relative gold at the end of 2017. The November 26 Sunday Million featured a third-place finish from Forman to pick up 550.22 PLB points and $75,250.

The bronze medalist in the Czech Republic rankings is WSOP Main Event Day 7 finisher Michael ‘SmallKindB’ Sklenička. The young Czech made the partypokerLIVE MILLIONS final table in Sochi, Russia in September and is no slouch on the online felt either. Sklenička is nudging toward $1 million in earnings, exclusively playing on PokerStars.

The ‘gembler’ of the Czech Republic is at an all-time high for their PocketFives rankings at #325. ‘Gembler’ is another player who grinds the single and double-digits buy-in events. Playing under the moniker of ‘IKnowYourLimits,’ they take third in the second event of the partypoker PowerFest in a field of 1,981 to take down 163.58 points.

Jakub ‘Olli444’ Oliva plays well online as his $1.325 million in tournament winnings would attest to. Most of Oliva’s biggest scores are from a few years ago and he’s back on that pace with an $18,154 win on PokerStars.

‘Foldin4livin’ plays a few hands, apparently. The #6 player in the Czech Republic has their best results on partypoker including two runner-ups at the end of January.

‘Desmo’ enters the fray at #7. The all-time high for ‘Desmo’ was #106 in 2016.

The #500 player in the world resides in the Czech Republic with ‘martinkom111.’ The PokerStars only player took second in the January 28 Sunday Million and pocketed $116,229 and 730.75 PLB points to shoot up the rankings.

The final two on the list are ‘Vocaaas’ and ‘dohodys.’ Both players are under 3,000 PLB points and looking to pass their countrymen in the upcoming weeks.
