RANKINGS: Some Shuffling in the Top 25, Top Five Unchanged

0
The world of online poker is full of #1-ranked players. Here's a sample of who is leading the way in their home country.

Stability reigns at the top of the PocketFives Rankings this week. The top five players in the world stayed the same as last week with Sweden’s ‘lena900‘ holding on to the #1 spot for the fifth consecutive week.

‘Lena900’ managed to hold on to the top spot despite not picking up a single qualifying cash. In fact, he cashed just 15 times this past week, with the biggest coming via a fourth-place finish in the PokerStars Sunday High Roller which earned him $14,774.

Fellow Swede ‘C Darwin2‘ finished fourth in that same event for $25,812 and 239.7 points. That was his only qualifying cash of the week.

Roman ‘Romeopro’ Romanovsky is almost a month out from his last online cash. His last tracked result came on May 28.

Russia’s ‘hellohellohello‘ is in a very similar boat. He picked up a single cash, finishing 14th in the partypoker Big Bounty Hunter event for $1,345 but it wasn’t deep enough to add to his PLB points total.

Andres ‘probirs’ Nemeth joins the chorus of players not picking up qualifying cashes this past week.

The first signs of movement inside the top 10 of the Rankings saw Ramiro ‘Ramiro’ Petrone and ‘GINS FINEST‘ swap the #6 and #7 positions.

Brazil’s Pedro ‘PaDiLhA SP’ Padilha moved up to #8 from #11 and is now the top-ranked player in his home country. Sweden’s ‘Ariados‘ jumped from #10 to #9.

The only new face in the Top 25 wasn’t much of a new face at all. Jonatan ‘Pot4teUS’ Hellman, who has been as high as #4, moved from #29 to #25 this week after runner-up finishes in both the partypoker Big Bounty High Roller and the PokerStars Hot $215 for 415.61 points.
