Coleman also put in a large amount of volume on the regulated New Jersey online poker sites, turning in nine top-three finishes out of his 43 total cashes in April. He posted nineteen four-figure cashes in the month with a highlight score of $7,846 for his runner-up finish in the WSOP.com $30,000 Tuesday Showdown. Coleman also took home outright wins in four tournaments resulting in scores of $3,390, $6,435, $6,188 and $3,023. He currently sits less than $6K away from eclipsing $1.8M in total career online earnings.
Yong ‘ykwon17’ Kwon jumped up to the #3 rank in the U.S.A. in April after putting together a nice month that included 59 cashes, 16 of which were good for podium finishes. He started the month off with four outright victories in the first week including a win in the WSOP.com $20,000 Weekly Tuesday for $9,828. However, that wasn’t Kwon’s largest cash of the month as he also went on to take down the April 12 edition of the WSOP.com Spring OC #36 for another $12,918 and 214.79 PLB points. He chased in nine PLB qualifying tournaments to amass a total of 4,086.77. Kwon needed every bit of that to surpass perennial United States online poker rankings leader Michael ‘Gags30’ Gagliano who sits ranked at #4 this month with 4,084.05 PLB points.
Gagliano didn’t put in a full online grind in April, but what he did do reaped major rewards. ‘Gags’ only posted 13 total cashes in the month, six of which were top-three finishes. Of those finishes, four of those were outright wins. His top score of the month was a victory in the April 24 edition of the WSOP.com $30,000 Tuesday Showdown for $13,450 and 211.74 PLB points. In total, Gagliano banked over $55,000 in the month.
Finishing off the top five is last month’s #1-ranked Jon ‘itsmejon’ Borenstein. Borenstein started off the month strong with a runner-up finish in the WSOP.com $50,000 Monthly Sunday for $14,858 and 195.05 PLB points. He also found success over on partypoker, taking down the April 26 edition of the Mega $320 Thursday for $2,824. In total, Borenstein had a successful month with 41 cashes, 12 of which were for four-figures or better.
