A major shakeup in this week’s Online Poker Rankings saw UK online crusher Bert ‘girafganger7’ Stevens jumping up from the #2 spot to assume the #1 rank for the fourth time in his career and ending the three-month-long reign of Brunno ‘bbotteon’ Botteon. Just one week ago, Stevens eclipsed the 13,000 PLB mark, putting him closer to Botteon than anyone had been in the better part of a month. However, he needed a significant score to close the gap and that’s exactly what took place this week. Stevens picked up a runner-up finish in the GGPoker Super MILLION$ Week $25,500 Super High Roller for $655,289, the second-largest online score of his career. Additionally, that came with 1,175.58 PLB points, just enough to push the pro past 14,000 total PLB points and back into the role of the #1 online player in the world. Even though his SHR runner-up finish was perhaps the result that pushed him over the top, his week was littered with significant results that included a third-place finish in the GGPoker $840 High Rollers Marathon for $16,494 and 182.89 PLB points. Also, he made a deep run in the $5,250 Sunday 500 on GGPoker for another $12,146 and 236.06 points. On top of those results, there were plenty of scores that didn’t qualify for PLB points but made for an incredible week for ‘Giraf’. There were nine tournaments, none of which counted into the rankings due to field size, in which Stevens walked away with a five-figure score. In total, those nine tournaments added over $257,000 to his career earnings which soared past the $15 million mark this week. READ: The Poker Dream Is Still Very Much Alive For 'Girafganger7' After a dominant 12-week run, Botteon moved down to #4 this week due to a combination of low volume (he only recorded an uncharacteristic nine total cashes this week) and aging PLB results. Botteon’s current PLB total is 12,858, an amount that he could easily build upon to get back in contention for the top spot in the coming weeks. Steven’s wasn’t the only major move inside the Top 10 this week as Portugal’s Rui ‘RuiNF’ Ferreira continued to grind his way up the rankings and moved from #7 into the #2 spot, a new career-high ranking for him. It was one month ago that Ferreira first broke through into the Top 5 and in the subsequent weeks, he bounced around inside and out of the Top 10. But with four PLB-qualifying scores this week, including an online career-high victory in GGPoker Super MILLION$ Week $10,300 High Roller for $268,974 and 1,174.73, he was able to vault all the way up to second on the list. Russia’s Arsenii ‘hellohellohello’ Malinov’s heater continues as well. The recently featured pro jumped three spots this week from #6 in the world to #3 - the closest he’s been to the top spot since 2018. Less than a week after his career-high GGPoker $25,500 Super High Roller win for $661,744, Malinov made another deep run in an SHR. On March 8, Malinov finished in sixth place for $180,167 in another GGPoker $25K bringing him an additional 608.11 PLB points and leaving him just 249 points behind Ferriera and 782 behind Stevens. Online Poker Rankings Notes This Week • Following his jump in the rankings last week, Finland’s former #1-ranked pro Sami ‘LarsLuzak’ Kelopuro is back inside the Top 10, rising from #12 to #8 in the world. This is thanks, in part, to a sixth-place finish for over $135,000 in the same $25K Super High Roller that awarded massive points to ‘Giraf’ and Malinov this week. • Speaking of Super High Rollers, Sam ‘Pudge714’ Greenwood posted back-to-back deep runs on Natural8 that brought him over $79,000 and 650 PLB points. It also pushed him up 13 spots in the rankings from #36 back into the Top 25 to #23. • Sam ‘TheSquid’ Grafton returned to the Top 100 this week, rising from #141 in the world to #89 after making the final table of the PokerStars Turbo Series Event #126 ($5,200 8-Max, PKO, High Roller) where he took home more than $26,000 and 233.35 PLB points. Joining him in breaking back through, was Hungary’s Peter ‘Belabacsi’ Traply who took down a PokerStars $109 and added $4,783 to his more than $18.6 million in career earnings, currently second on the Online All-Time Money List.

The online poker explosion of 2020 proved to be a boon for PocketFivers, especially those who took advantage of the extensive tournament offerings over on 888poker. The online site spent the better part of the year giving players plenty of reasons to log on and play. From their Early Bird Rakeback promotions to the multiple $500,000 GTD XL Series Main Events, the data shows PocketFivers padded their bankrolls by making deep runs in some of the biggest tournaments the online site offered all year long. In total, the top ten PocketFives tournament players on 888poker earned more than $1 million over the course of 139 victories. Denmark’s ‘N33dCoaching’ led all scores in 2020 by earning $124,973 with a total of 221 cashes. A regular grinder of mid-high stakes tournaments, ’N33dCoaching’ put together his six-figure earnings with volume and consistency. He notched 10 wins with his biggest score coming in the April 5 edition of the $25,000 Sunday Challenge when he outlasted the field of 226 entries to earn a $5,529 payday. A late-year heater brought him three more important victories in a four-week span. First, he took down the $16.50 BIG Fish on October 17 for $2,835. Right before the end of the month, he booked another win in the October 30 $10,000 Mega Deep for $3,400. Just two weeks later ‘N33dCoaching’ grabbed the gold medal once again in the $12,000 Mega Deep for another $3,600, which proved to be a critical score to help him take down the 888poker Top Earners leaderboard. Just $3,390 behind ’N33dCoaching’ was online poker savant Peter ‘Belabacsi’ Traply. Traply, who currently sits at #2 on the Online Poker All-Time Money List, locked up a yearly total of $121,583 on 888poker to push his career online earnings to more than $18.4 million. Traply, playing under his screen name ‘kiskutya23’, made the money in 220 tournaments in 2020 and finished in the top spot in 16 of them. Of those 16 victories, 15 were good for four-figure scores and the total of those wins account for $32,898 of his earnings (27% of total scores). One of the most important of his year was his victory in the January 27 edition of the $3,000 Late Mega Deep for $1,924 which became a part of his 12th PocketFives Triple Crown, his first time achieving that accolade since 2013. Surprisingly, his biggest score of the year wasn’t one of those wins. In fact, it was a tournament where he didn’t even place in the top three. In the July 19 edition of the $100,000 Sunday Mega Deep, Traply took home his biggest 888poker score when he finished in fifth place for $5,250. Traply ended the year as the #3-ranked player in Hungary and #156 in the world. Rounding out the top three is Germany’s ‘LIk3az0mbY’ who took home $115,698 over 367 in-the-money finishes. Like the two players above him, ‘LIk3az0mbY’ made his money by sticking to the grind. His 2020 highlights included grabbing a title in 888poker’s PKO Series by winning Event #27 ($20,000 Mini 6-Max) for $3,298. The very next week he hit what would be his high score of the year with a runner-up finish in the April 16 edition of the $20,000 Mega Deep for another $3,937. With the help of his results on 888poker, ‘LIk3az0mbY’ climbed into the top 10 online players in Germany and hit an all-time career-high of #858 in the world. 888poker Top 10 Earners of 2020 [table id=151 /]
