On the back of an impressive February, New Jersey online grinder Yong ‘ykwon17’ Kwon has returned to the top of the USA Online Poker Rankings. After spending the past two months in the #2 spot, Kwon (4,516 PLB points) seemingly doubled-down his efforts in February. He increased his volume and picked up a total of 69 cashes, earning more than $86,000 in the month. Of those results, 12 were PLB-qualifying scores including his spotlight score in the February 26 edition of the WSOP.com’s $25,000 NLHE High Roller where he finished as the runner-up for $9,283 and 149.82 PLB points. That came just days after he made a final table run in the WSOP.com’s $50,000 Monthly Sunday where he earned $6,150 and 103.64 PLB points. In February, Kwon booked 25 four-figure scores in the month and 21 total podium finishes. [ptable zone="Global Poker Article Ad"][ptable zone="888poker"][ptable zone="PokerStars NJ"] That’s what it took to surpass David ‘dehhhhh’ Coleman (4,459), who dropped one spot to #2. Like Kwon, Coleman spent the majority of the month grinding online, posting 48 total cashes for a total of just over $57,000 in earnings. Coleman kicked off the month with a runner-up finish in the February 5 edition of the BorgataPoker.com Mega $535 Tuesday for $5,060 and 100.06 PLB points. Days later he posted what would be his high score for the month with a second-place finish in the WSOP.com’s $30,000 Weekly Sunday for $7,902 and 138.23 PLB points. His recent results have helped him climb to be the #85-ranked player in the world. Michael ‘JohnnyDrama’ Haberman Jr. (4,076) jumped up three spots to take over the #3 spot in the US Online Rankings. Haberman had a fast start to February with a victory in the PokerStars NJ Sunday Special for $4,450 and 127.21 PLB points. Then he went on a tear during the WSOP.com Winter Online Championships, taking home three titles. His first came in Event #3 (NLHE 4-Max) where he earned $9,440 plus 188.99 PLB points. Five days later, he went the distance in Event #18 ($15,000 NLHE Turbo Deepstack) for another $5,516 and 142.00 PLB points. His biggest score of the month arrived with his third Winter OC title as he outlasted 353 entries of Event #43 ($30,000 NLHE Special Sunday Deepstack) for $11,932 and another 218.47 PLB points. All in all, Haberman finished the month earning over $62,000 on 54 total cashes and climbed to a career-high ranking of #124 in the world. Longtime New Jersey grinder Jon ‘itsmejon’ Borenstein jumped up one spot to #4 this month after taking all of January off. He returned to the online tables in mid-February to pick up 15 total cashes including a victory in Event #22 of the Winter OC ($10,000 NLHE Knockout) for $4,191 and 153.07 PLB points. Helping him in the rankings, eight of his 15 cashes were PLB-qualified scores. Completing the top-5 for February is Vladimir ‘Donate_here’ Alexandrov, who steps back a single spot to #5. A good part of the reason Alexandrov moved back is simply a lack of volume. The New Jersey resident took the better part of the month off, recording just eight total cashes. However, he booked a big score by taking down the February 19 edition of the BorgataPoker.com Mega $535 Tuesday for $6,765 and 143.18 PLB points.
