For weeks now, the worldwide Online Poker Rankings have been a tight-knit crew. Brunno ‘bbotteon’ Botteon has held down the top spot for the past eight weeks and well-known names like Ivan ‘zufo16’ Zufic, Mike ‘SirWatts’ Watson, and Bert ‘girafganger7’ Stevens have occupied their own positions inside the Top 5. But this week, a new player broke through into the upper echelons of the rankings for the first time in his career. Portugal’s #1-ranked pro Rui ‘RuiNF’ Ferreira soared past Brazil’s Bruno ‘brunovolks’ Volkmann and Yuri ‘Yuri Martins’ Dzivieleski to capture the #5 spot, building on what has been, for him, an incredible start to 2021. Ferreira has long been considered a top-tier tournament player but his recent rise in the rankings can be traced back to the beginning of this year when he collected large amounts of PLB points on a daily basis. Many of Ferreira's spotlight scores have come on GGPoker, where he dedicates most of his volume. His first notable score of the year came back on January 4 when he made a deep run in the WSOP Circuit Event #15 ($800 FIFTY STACK), finishing in fifth place for $56,646 and 451.33 PLB points. That was just the start of an onslaught of impressive results that week. In a three-day span, he collected five PLB-qualifying scores including a fifth-place finish in the prestigious $10K Super MILLION$ tournament where he collected $158,690 and 567.28 PLB points. In total, he brought in 1,396.28 points during that span which set him up for a run to the worldwide Top 10. Less than a week later, Ferreira finished as the runner-up in the Winamax W Series High Roller KO for $131,199, his second six-figure score of the week. The 921.92 PLB points that came with it remains his largest PLB score of the year so far. He wasn’t finished with the W Series as a victory in Event 185 added another $11,194 to his bankroll and helped pad the bed of PLB points he’d need to push into the upper echelons of the rankings. On January 26, he made another deep run in the GGPoker Super MILLION$, finishing in 11th place for $33,604. Ferriera has proved to be one of the most consistent players in the weekly Super MILLION$ having cashed in 15 of his 31 appearances and earning $1,000,053 along the way. After that result, Ferriera had climbed into the #8 spot in the rankings and needed an extra jolt to hit a new career-high rank this week. He got that lift this week after outlasting the 111 runners, and besting Chris Koldnicki heads-up, in the $525 buy-in GGPoker Sunday High Rollers for $12,886 and 235.58 PLB points. On the same day, at a final table that included Ryan Riess, Bryan Paris, and Jack Salter, Ferreira took fifth place in the High Roller MILLION$ for $66,038 and the 473.78 PLB points he needed to break into the Top 5. While he still has a way to go to make a run at #1, as he’s over 3,400 points behind Botteon as of this week, another solid performance over the next week could put him in striking distance of Stevens who sits at #4, just 194 points away. Online Poker Rankings Notes This Week • Russia’s Andrey 'kot_spartac' Kotelnikov reached a career-high ranking of #13 in the world, up 12 spots from #25 last week, thanks in part to finishing in fourth place out of a massive 28,404-entry field in the PokerStars 50/50 Series $50 Main Event. He earned $47,045 and 494.56 PLB points to push him past former #1-ranked Conor ‘1_conor_b_1’ Beresford who fell back to #14. • Popular Twitch poker streamer Patrick ‘Egption’ Tardif hit #34 in the world, a new career-high for him, after finishing as the runner-up in the Natural8 $1,050 High Rollers Main Event for $75,480 and 466.52 PLB points. The score helped propel Tardif to up over $3 million in career online earnings. • Brazil’s Gabriel ‘gtavares10’ Tavares made one of the biggest moves of the week, jumping up 27 spots to #58 after his victory in the February 7 PokerStars $530 High Roller Club Bounty Builder for $40,301 and 541.76 PLB points. Brazil has taken over the worldwide top 100, currently holding down 29 of the top 100 spots. Worldwide Online Poker Rankings [table id=171 /]
[caption width="450"] Rui 'RuiNF' Ferreira is now part of a unique club following his TCOOP victory.[/caption] History was made on the third to final day of PokerStars Turbo Championship of Online Poker as Rui 'RuiNF' Ferreira become just the third player to join the PokerStars COOP Triple Crown club with his win in Event #37. Ferreira joins Shawn Buchanan and James ‘Andy McLEOD’ Obst as players to have won a WCOOP, SCOOP and TCOOP title in their career. The day began however with Oscar ‘MendaLerenda’ Serradell beating out 299 other players to win Event #36, a $82 No Limit Draw event. The 300 players also produced 198 re-entries to push the total prize pool to $37,350 - well over the $25,000 guarantee. When the final table started, Serradell, the #14-ranked player in the world, was second in chips behind only Artur ‘ARTSchGamble’ Scerbak. Serradell turned the tables early though after Scerbak dropped a big chunk of chips to ‘risto155’. Serradell busted Scerbak in fifth and found himself with the chip lead. After ‘MaTitheone’ busted ‘schn4trick’ in fourth, Serradell eliminated ‘risto155’ in third and then MaTitheone in second to win the first COOP title of his career and earn $7,096.70 in the process. Ferreira’s history-making run came in Event #37, a $215 Six Max No Limit with rebuys Event. When the final table began Ferreira had 2,235,845 in chips - more than 1,000,000 ahead of his closest competitor. Shashank ‘felter1989’ Jain took care of the first elimination, sending ‘Tankanza’ out in sixth. Ferreira busted ‘oswald187’ in fifth before Jain sent ‘mczhang’ out in fourth. Despite picking up two of the first three eliminations, Jain was on the losing end of a blind vs. blind battle against Ferreira and was done in third place leaving only ‘uWannaLoan?’ between Ferreiro and the COOP Triple Crown. After chop discussions went nowhere, Ferreiro went to work at winning the tournament outright. On the final hand of the night ‘uWannaLoan?’ raised to 336,000 before Ferreiro moved all in. ‘uWannaLoan?’ called and tabled [poker card="jc"][poker card="jh"] while Ferreiro was needed some assistance with [poker card="ah"][poker card="6s"]. The [poker card="ac"][poker card="kd"][poker card="3h"] flop gave Ferreiro top pair and that held through the [poker card="8c"] turn and [poker card="6h"] river to give Ferreira the TCOOP title and another $81,474 in earnings. In Event #38, a $215 Ante Up No Limit Hold’em event with Progressive Super Knockout, ‘chickensssss’ (chicken on PocketFives) came out on top of a 1,191 player field to win $20,556.66. ‘chickensssss’ dominated the final table, eliminating five of the last six players to collect not only their chips, but their bounties as well. On the final hand of the tournament, ‘chickensssss’ called from the small blind before ‘philipgm’ raised to 90,010. ‘chickensssss’ called to send both players to a [poker card="kh"][poker card="tc"][poker card="3c"] flop. ‘chickensssss’ called ‘philipgm’s bet of 119,001. After the [poker card="7h"] turn ‘philipgm’ bet 202,311 and again ‘chickensssss’ called. The [poker card="8d"] river got ‘philipgm’ to move all in for 849,047 and ‘chickensssss’ called and tabled [poker card="th"][poker card="5d"] for second pair while ‘philipgm’ showed [poker card="qc"][poker card="9c"] for busted straight and flush draws. The final event of the day, Event #39, saw ‘duffm0n’ emerge victorious in the $82 Six Max Limit Hold’em event over a field of 643 players. The final table included Team PokerStars Pro Kosei ‘K. Ichinose’ Ichinose who finished fifth. With just three players remaining ‘RyderRock’ had the chip lead over both ‘duffm0n’ and ‘TaBuLA_Ras4’. Early talks of a chop were quickly dismissed by ‘duffm0n’ and play continued. Not long after that ‘RyderRock’ and ‘duffm0n’ tangled that eliminated ‘RyderRock’ and sent ‘duffm0n’ on to a quick heads-up battle with ‘TaBuLA_Ras4’ that ended when ‘duffm0n’ made a full house on a [poker card="ah"][poker card="4d"][poker card="4s"][poker card="8s"][poker card="2d"] board with ‘TaBuLA_Ras4’ betting the entire way with just queen-high.

Former #1-ranked Calvin 'cal42688' Anderson won a record-breaking ninth PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker title on Day 6 of SCOOP and catapulted himself into the top spot on the overall series leaderboard. Anderson came into the day's play already holding a record eight SCOOP titles, but by the end of it, he had made that number nine by winning Event #19 (High) for $126,659. After 335 entrants had departed the $2,100 buy-in field, the final three of Anderson, Aaron Been and David 'dpeters17' Peters went to battle. Peters, fresh off the back of his fourth-place finish at the EPT Monte Carlo Main Event for $280,770, was the first to depart taking away $67,143 for third place, leaving Been the only man standing between Anderson and a ninth SCOOP title. However, Been, who has eclipsed over $3.8M in online tournament earnings, was unable to stop the formidable Anderson from achieving the accolade as the American claimed another six-figure score exactly a year to the day after his last, which came during the 2017 SCOOP series. Anderson's victory propels him to the top of the overall SCOOP leaderboard, overtaking Roman Romanovsky, in a race that will see the winner receive the trophy and a much coveted PokerStars Platinum pass to next year's PCA worth over $30,000. Elsewhere on Day 6, The UK's Jon 'luckyfish89' Clark also achieved quite a remarkable feat after taking down Event #18 (High) for his third 'Thursday Thrill' title in just over eight weeks. The SCOOP special edition 'Thrill' tournament featured a massive $1m guaranteed prize pool with 1,344 entrants all looking for the first-place prize. But it was the former Sunday Million runner-up Clark who went the distance after beating Oscar 'owilson25' Ramirez heads-up, to claim his first SCOOP title and a prize of $104,935. Canada's 'D PitcherAK' won $51,979 for coming through a 7,334 player field in the Event 18 (Medium) Mini Thursday Thrill. 'MarioDutraJR' took the silver medal for $35,971 and 'Whatzaq' took $24,894 in third. Jon 'LUFCBas' Spinks finished in a very respectable fourth-place in the mammoth Event #18 (Low) 19,648 player field. The two-time Sunday Warm-Up champion received $3,636 for his efforts as 'rawacha' took the title for $9,797. PokerStars online-pro Jaime Staples made an appearance at the Event #17 (Low) final table, with the well-known Twitch steamer securing a fifth-place finish for $1,461. 'RunGodLike' was the eventual champion for $6,201 after they beat 'Stoffers1' heads-up, who took $4,320 for second place. 'villepn' won $13,701.09 and Rui 'RuiNF' Ferreira secured $48,271 for winning Event #17 (Medium) and Event #17 (High) respectively. Ferreira was able to come through a final table which featured online phenomenon Victor 'Isildur1' Blom, who exited in sixth-place for $12,876.67 Ramiro 'ramastar88' Petrone, ($57,321), 'WhoAreYoux1' ($39,938) and Alberto 'bertotraste' Novoa ($27,828) made up the top three in Event #19 (Medium), as world no.#10 Petrone secured his first SCOOP title. 'GodOf.com' beat 'karas1926' to victory in Event #19 (Low) and jumped to the top of the SCOOP Low Leaderboard. The win earns them $21,995, with the runner-up taking $15,319. Event #23 saw three 5-Card NLO Six-Max Turbo tournaments take place with 'BigTreeStump' taking down the $530 (High) for $29,791.'Foxy1029' turned $55 into $10,512 in the (Medium) tournament after they negotiated a final table that included current world no.#1 'C. Darwin2', who finished in sixth place. The final three players agreed to a deal before 'Foxy1029' became the last player standing. And in the final result on Day 6, 'SFARRRR' took the Event #23 (Low) win for $3,277 after seeing off 'jogrepiria' ($2,180.14) in second, and 'schmidt88888' ($1,963.11) in third after once again a three-handed deal was made.
