  1. [caption width="640"] Jonatan 'Pot4teUS' Hellman finished on top of the July PLB standings. (photo: Tomas Stacha)[/caption] July brought most of the online poker world back together as most players who were in Las Vegas for the summer returned home to restart the virtual grind. It was another contested battle to finish at the top of the PocketFives monthly PLB leaderboard. and this time around, Jonatan ‘Po4teUS’ Hellman finished on top. Hellman accumulated 2,650 points, nearly 150 points more than second place Jerry ‘perrymejsen’ Odeen. In July, Hellman picked up five wins with a multitude of additional podium finishes. The largest cash for Hellman came in the $700 Super Sized Sunday on PokerStars where a win earned him $35,275 and 447.03 points. Overall, Hellman had an average score of 132.54 in July. Odeen took down two majors events in July, which spearheaded his run to second place. The first tournament won by Odeen was the PokerStars Sunday Grand. Odeen beat a field of 181 players and took home the first place prize of almost $36,000. A week later, the partypoker High Roller on July 24 earned Odeen 396 points when he won the event and collected the $29,400 first place prize. Emil ‘Smeckten’ Ohlsson and ‘lena900’finished in third and fourth place, respectively. Ohlsson came back from a two-month hiatus to win eight tournaments in July and push his career earnings up to $5,190,000. ‘lena900’ is #3 in the world for a reason and the seven wins notched last month attest to that. In the middle of the pack is Jordan ‘JWProdigy’ Westmoreland, who checks in at #8. Westmoreland had the third-best point scoring result of the month among the top-10. He won the Sunday Grand on July 2 and picked up 419.52 points along with $35,435. There’s more than one member from the worldwide top-10 in the July PLB Rankings as current #5 Andreas ‘r4ndomr4gs’ Berggren finished ninth. Berggren won four tournaments last month and held an average score of 108.96 points, earning 2,179 points overall.

  2. The #1-ranked player in the world, ‘C Darwin2’, added another accolade to his resume by ending the year by winning the 2017 PocketFives Leaderboard. The yearly PLB differs from the Sliding PLB, which helps determine the weekly rankings, in that it takes the top 100 PLB point scores of the calendar year for any player into consideration and the accumulation of those points determines the top performers. The powerhouse country of Sweden is home to the top four players (and six of ten) in the 2017 PLB rankings. First and foremost is ‘C Darwin2’. Having spent more time as the #1-ranked player in the world than any other player in 2017, ‘C Darwin2’ posted consistent results on volume that reflects his seemingly non-stop work ethic. His signature point total came when he racked up 819.05 PLB points by taking seventh place in the Event #55 of PokerStars’ SCOOP, the $10,500 Main Event. He also earned $178,883 for his efforts. That was one of two six-figure scores for ‘C Darwin2’ who wrapped up 2017 with over 60 five-figures scores and 24,397.83 PLB points. The only other player to finish with over 20,000 PLB points in 2017 was ‘lena900’. Also a 2017 mainstay in the Top 5 Worldwide rankings, ‘lena900’ had multiple 500+ PLB scores including his first-place finish in a September $5,200 No Limit Hold’em Side Event for $94,350. Surprisingly, that score is not the Swede’s top PLB score. It came early in the year when he took down the $1,050 Sunday Grand on PokerStars for $58,319 and 556.78 base points. In addition to racking up 22,094 PLB points, ‘lena900’ eclipsed $8 million in lifetime earnings in 2017 and at his current pace, he’ll easily see $9 million in 2018. Another Swedish former #1 ranked player, Andreas ‘r4andomr4gs’ Berggren, takes the #3 spot. Berggren, a voluminous grinder, consistently posted big-time results in 2017 including his runner-up finish in the PokerStars $1,050 Super Tuesday on May 30 for nearly $50,000 and a win in the Winamax W Series Event 6 for $39,436 and a year-high 450.29 PLB points. He also ended the year on a heater, finishing in fourth place in Event #8 of the PokerStars High Roller for over $44,000 and 312.07 PLB points and another runner-up in the PokerStars $530 Bounty Builder on December 3 for $32,500. In total, thanks to large scores like these, Berggren racked up 19,322 qualifying PLB points for the year. 2017 saw yet another Swedish superstar climb the ranks of the Worldwide rankings while collecting valuable PLB points. ‘inhoo’, who checks in at #4 in the 2017 PLB Yearly rankings, reached as high as #2 in the Worldwide last year while collecting 19,097.50 PLB points. He made his mark early when he took first place in Event #14 of PokerStars’ TCOOP ($320 No Limit Hold’em Zoom) for over $86,000 and a PLB score of 757.76, his best for the year. He followed that up in May with a pair of final table appearances. The first came during Event #6 during PokerStars SCOOP ($1,050 No Limit Hold’em 6-Max) where he finished in fourth for $62,505. Then, days later, ‘inhoo’ finished in fifth during Event #12 of the same series ($1,050 NLHE Super Tuesday) that brought him another $69,992. He slowed down his schedule a bit at the end of the year which saw him slip down the Worldwide Rankings just a bit. He currently sits at #33 Worldwide, but he did enough to stay top 5 for the year in PLB points. The top 5 is capped off the man who holds the single largest PLB point score of the year. Steven ’SvZff’ van Zadelhoff earned that honor when he won what is arguably the most prestigious online tournament of the year, the PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker Main Event. The $5,200 Main Event awarded van Zadelhoff a career-high cash of $1,624,502 and a massive 3,303.79 PLB boost. The points helped keep the Malta pro in the top 5 Worldwide. Then, after a red-hot first week in December, where he recorded a runner-up finish in Event #18 of the PokerStars High Rollers Series for over $89,000, he took possession of the #1 Worldwide spot for the very first time in his career. Soon thereafter, van Zadelhoff took a short break from the online grind and has since slipped back to the #2 spot, where he finished the year with 18,576.64 Sweden’s ‘Sheater’ comes in sixth for the year with 17,899.45 points in 2017. His largest PLB score came right at the beginning of the year when he scored a victory in the January 12 edition of PokerStars $1,050 Thursday Thrill for over $46,000 and 511.86 points. ‘Sheater’ just recently surpassed $9 million in lifetime earnings and will be accumulating PLB points in 2018 to try and get back to his all-time high ranking of #1 in the world. The UK’s current top online player Conor ‘1_conor_b_1’ Beresford checks in at #7. His runner-up finish in PokerStars SCOOP Event #34-M ($215 No Limit Hold’em 4-Max) for $40,852 also brought him 434.64 of his 17,799.69 total PLB points. He finishes less than 100 points behind ‘Sheater’, one of the closes gaps between players in the top 10. Fabrizio ‘SixthSenSe19’ Gonzalez earned the #8 spot. His victory in the partypoker Heavyweight: Uppercut Warm Up on November 13 brought him a PLB year-high score of 707.11 and over $80,000. The final two in the top 10 for 2017 both have 1000+ PLB scores on their resumes. At #9, Russian online legend ‘veeea’ earned 17,338.14 PLB points with a large potportion that belonging to his victory in the PokerStars Sunday Million in July for 1,053.94 PLB points, earning him $166,530. Wrapping up the countdown in #10 is yet another Swede in ‘Ariados’. The two-time PocketFives Triple Crown winner took down the partypoker Powerfest Super High Roller for 1,027.13 PLB points and a massive $226,825 score. Joao ‘joaosimaobh’ Simao and Johannes ‘Greenstone25’ Korsar just missed out on being included in the top 10 for 2017, both having still accumulated over 17,000 PLB points. 2017 Yearly PLB Rankings Top 10 RANK PLAYER POINTS 1 C Darwin 2 24,397.83 2 lena900 22,094.19 3 r4ndomr4gs 19,322.16 4 inhoo 19,097.50 5 SvZff 18,576.64 6 Sheater 17,889.45 7 1_conor_b_1 17,799.69 8 SixthSenSe19 17,447.32 9 veeea 17,338.14 10 Ariados 17,284.62
  3. Halfway through the final month of 2018, Sweden's 'lena900' remains atop the PocketFives 2018 PLB race. Most of the top five stayed the same, with each of the top four places having the same player as our last update, but the #5 spot did change and it now belongs to 'DamageAP.' PocketFives 2018 PLB Top 5 as of December 20 1. 'lena900' - 29,692.68 2. 'C Darwin2' - 26,944.29 3. 'hellohellohello' - 24,818.53 4. Roman 'Romeopro' Romanovsky - 21,906.06 5. 'DamageAP' - 21,254.51 Thanks to adding 1,575 points since the last update on November 14, 'lena900' now has a lead of 2,748.39 points over the rest of the field. That's a fair bit more than the lead of 2,124.20 he had on a month ago. Helping 'lena900' extend his lead was a third-place finish in the PokerStars Sunday Million on November 25 for $80,555 and 569.39 points. He also won the partypoker High Roller Bounty Hunter: $100K Gtd [Fast] on November 28 for $30,340 and 316.23 points. In second place stayed 'C Darwin2,' but he only added 950.81 points to the 1,575 for ‘lena900’ and that caused him to fall behind further. With a total of 26,944.29 points and two weeks to go in 2018, it doesn’t appear that 'C Darwin2' is going to be able to catch 'lena900' for the Yearly PLB win. Even still, 'C Darwin2' has been performing well as of late. He has cashes for $20,926 (225.84 points), $14,247 (163.58 points), $13,370 (246.98 points), $12,282 (120.94 points), and $11,000 (137.65 points) in December already. The largest of those came from a fourth-place result in the PokerStars High Roller Club: $1,050 Sunday Supersonic [6-Max, Hyper-Turbo], $150K Gtd on December 2. Russia's 'hellohellohello' stayed in third place and Roman 'Romeopro' Romanovsky stayed in fourth place, and the big change came with the addition of 'DamageAP' to the top five. 'DamageAP' overtook Ramiro 'Ramiro' Petrone for fifth place thanks to adding 846.60 points and moving to 21,254.51 points on the year. 'DamageAP' was only 119.04 points behind Petrone when we last updated and he earned 184.08 more PLB points since then. 'DamageAP' cashed for $15,504 and 187.29 points in the PokerStars High Roller Club: $1,050 Sunday Warm-Up [8-Max], $100K Gtd on November 18, he took second in the partypoker KO Series #09-HR: $100K Gtd [Mix-Max Fast] on November 19 for $16,916 and 208.63 points, and he won the PokerStars High Roller Club: $1,050 Daily Warm-Up [8-Max], $100K Gtd for $23,734 and 320.94 points on November 20. In December, 'DamageAP' won the PokerStars High Roller Club: $530 Bounty Builder HR [Progressive KO], $125K Gtd on December 1 for $13,614 and 267.39 points, and he also won the partypoker Sunday Deepstack: $100K Gtd on December 9 for $16,500 and 316.23 points. Petrone is now the one on the outside of the top five looking in with 21,189.47 points, and 'girafganger7' isn’t too far behind him with 21,119.80 points.
  4. The online poker alias of 'Lena900' is a name that regular PocketFives readers will be familiar with, mainly because the Swedish player can be seen to be battling it out in the highest stakes online poker tournaments have to offer week-after-week. For the past two years, 'Lena900' has just been pipped to the top of PocketFives.com Yearly PLB by his compatriot 'C.Darwin2', but 2018 was the year this all changed as 'Lena900' took the glory in five major festival events to sit at the summit of online poker.

PLB third-place finisher 'hellohellohello' from Russia beat his best online score three-times throughout 2018, which included victory in the PokerStars Sunday Million for $160,888 during August. Also securing their place in the top ten was Hungary's Andras 'probirs' Nemeth, Latvia's 'DamageAP', Argentina's Ramiro 'ramastar88' Petrone, 'Girafganger7', Sweden's 'Ariados', and the U.K.'s Patrick 'pleno1' Leonard. Nemeth took down the PokerStars SCOOP-14-H: $25,000 NLHE [8-Max, High Roller] for an eye-watering $576,087, with Romanovsky taking the silver medal for a cool $442,299.

  5. Former #1-ranked online poker player in the world ‘girafganger7’ added another line item to his already incredibly packed resume by taking down the PocketFives Monthly Leaderboard for August. While some online players may have been taking one last chance to go on vacation before summer ends, ‘Giraf’ (2399 PLB points) was putting in maximum volume accumulating over 120 results for a total of just over $125,000 in earnings. His highlight score came on the back half of the month when he outlasted the 284 runners in the August 21 edition of the PokerStars High Roller Club: $530 Bounty Builder HR, taking home $13,519 for the win. He accomplished the same feat just 10 days later, winning the same tournament on August 31 for another $9,721. [ptable zone="Global Poker Article Ad"][ptable zone="888poker"][ptable zone="PokerStars NJ"] In total, ‘Giraf’ picked up four-figures or more in 21 of his results, three of which were good for over $10K. Adding to those results, he earned eight PLB qualifying scores making up 1,398.74 of his total August PLB of 2,399 points. His PLB point accumulations have helped the UK-based pro to keep himself among the elite players in the world, where he currently sits at #14 in the world. This is the third time in 'Giraf's storied career that he has picked up a Monthly PLB award. His first came back in April of 2017 and his second PLB badge was awarded in February of this year. Just 62 PLB points behind ‘Giraf’ was another former #1-ranked PocketFiver, Chris ‘Gettin Daize’ Oliver (2,337). Over the past few months, Oliver has been making strides back up the PocketFives Rankings, where he currently sits as the #8 player in the world. He kicked off August with a bang, taking down the August 1 edition of the PokerStars High Roller Club: $530 Bounty Builder for $17,397 and 309 PLB points. Oliver picked up his second five-figure score of the month on August 11 when he had a final table finish in the PokerStars High Roller Club: $1,050 Sunday Warm-Up for $15,023 and 182.99 PLB points. He added two more five-figure scores en route to amassing $134,000 over the course of 123 in the money finishes. Russia’s ‘papan9_p$’ (2,194) is enjoying a career-high ranking of #10 in the world after a stellar month of August as well. Coming in at #3 on the Monthly PLB, ‘papan9_p$’ earned his highlight score of the month by taking down the August 4 edition of the PokerStars High Roller Club: $1,050 Sunday Warm-Up for $32,862 and 403.73 PLB points. After his over $118,000 in earnings in August, he is days away from breaking past the major milestone of over $5 million in total career online earnings. Another player enjoying career-high online poker success is noted live tournament crusher Kristen ‘krissyb24’ Bicknell, who comes in at #4 for the month of August. Bicknell recently just smashed through into the top ten in the PocketFives Rankings and is coming off an all-time high of #6, currently landing at #7 in the world. Unlike some of her peers on this list, Bicknell was not putting in tons of online volume in August - notching just 30 tournament results in the month. But when she did play, she routinely crushed. A partypoker sponsored ambassador, Bicknell started the month off with a five-figure score in the POWERFEST #21 High Roller for $14,857 and 184.16 PLB points. She followed that up just days later with a final table finish in the POWERFEST #38 Super High Roller, picked up another $20,000 and 220 PLB points. Her third and final five-figure score came in the August 11 POWERFEST Super High Roller where she earned another $29,082 and 306.26 PLB points. Her total earnings for the month wer over $119,000 with eight PLB-qualifying cashes. Bicknell's stellar month was just enough to help her soar past $3 million in lifetime online earnings to go with her more than $4 million in cashes on the live circuit. Rounding out the top five for the month of August was emerging Brazilian online superstar Geraldo ‘geraldocesar’ Cesar. Cesar racked up 129 total cashes in August for a total of over $115,000 in earnings. This included a runner-up finish in the August 18 PokerStars High Roller Club: $530 Bounty Builder for $28,595 and 321 PLB points - his largest score of the month. He followed that up with a victory in the August 26 GGPoker Sunday Blade for another $15,546 and 273.86 PLB points.
