Yong ‘ykwon17’ Kwon (aka ‘LuckySpewy1’) maintained his #1 spot in the PocketFives United States Online Poker Rankings for another month after he moved to the top of the leaderboard following his World Series of Poker online bracelet win.

Kwon currently sits atop the PocketFives USA Online Poker Rankings with 5,914 points. Since the last update, Kwon added three victories, one second-place finish, and one third-place finish in New Jersey online poker tournaments. The three tournaments he won were the PokerStars NJ Nightly Stars $100, $7,000 Gtd for $2,045 and 86.23 points on July 7, the WSOP NJ $7,500 Weekly Sunday Turbo Deepstack [Freezeout] for $2,797 and 101.41 points on July 22, and the WSOP NJ $10,000 Weekly Sunday PLO [Re-entry, 6 Max] for $4,130 and 108.63 points also on July 22.

July 22 proved even more awesome for Kwon because that’s the day he took third in the partypoker NJ SUNDAY $35K GTD NLH [3X RE] for $3,815 and 96.77 points.

Overall, Kwon now has more than $2.5 million in lifetime online tournament earnings.
