  1. It’s not easy to crack into online poker’s worldwide top-100 rankings. But for Americans who play inside U.S. borders on regulated sites, it’s even tougher. United States-based players don’t have access to the massive player pools and huge guarantees that some of the top players grind in order to rack up leaderboard points. For these pros, it takes a doubling-down of volume and effort in order to earn their spot and recognition among online poker’s best. And this week, four of America's best have succeeded in doing just that. Frank ‘thewholefunk’ Funaro Jr. (#52) New Jersey’s Frank Funaro is the current #1-ranked player in the United States and currently sits at #52 in the world. Funaro is in the midst of a career run, sitting just one spot off his career-high ranking and speed toward $1 million in total online poker earnings. Funaro has been stockpiling PLB points all summer including 19 PLB-qualifying scores in August. However, he really heated up after he took down the September 14 edition of the WSOP.com $100,000 Player Appreciation tournament for $19,741 and 325.69 PLB points. Just two weeks later, Funaro grabbed gold again by winning the WSOP.com $2,000 buy-in $150,000 guaranteed NLH High Roller for another $44,489 and 446.65 points. For the entire month, Funaro pulled in 38 cashes for a total of just over $102,000 in earnings. After a solid two-month grind, Funaro has been taking it easy. With just 11 cashes in October and, as of yet, no major recorded scores in November, he’ll find himself slipping down the rankings soon. But after all his hard work, he’s still likely to have a spot in the top-100 for a little while longer. David ‘dehhhhh’ Coleman (#62) David Coleman has just added to his long list of accomplishments, which includes a win in the New Jersey WPT Online Poker Open earlier this year, by reaching a career-high worldwide ranking of #62. Coleman, who is perpetually in the conversation when one talks about the best U.S. online poker players, has been steadily picking up PLB points throughout September and October. However, on October 28 he really received a boost with a pair of five-figure scores. Coleman just narrowly missed out on picking up a WSOP Circuit ring with a third-place finish in the WSOP Circuit Event #13 ($100,000 NLH High Roller, 6-Max) for $25,183 and 273.63 PLB points. The same day, he took down the WSOP Tuesday Showdown for another $17,302 and 246.39 PLB points. Coleman has continued his grind into November, already picking up some key PLB points including a win in the PokerStars NJ $250 Super Tuesday for $5,318. As more results come in, Coleman has a clear shot at cracking the top 50. Yong ‘ykwon17’ Kwon (#90) World Series of Poker gold bracelet winner Yong Kwon currently sits at #90 in the world having been ranked as high as #47 just last year. Known for his dedication to grinding, Kwon has spent years being known as one of the most dominant players from the Garden State racking up accolades and often times holding the #1 U.S. ranking for months at a time. After taking the first two weeks off in October, Kwon racked up 47 in-the-money finishes with 15 scores of four-figures or higher. His heavy PLB point push came as the month was coming to a close with back-to-back victories on WSOP.com. First, he took down the $20,000 Weekly Thursday for $7,162 and 157.16 PLB points. Then he added a win in the $10,000 Weekly Friday for another $2,800 plus 100.00 PLB points. His spotlight score took place in the WSOP.com PLO Mania Event #13 ($25,000 PLO) for $9,770 and 193.29 points. Kwon kicked November off with a fast start taking third place in the PokerStars NJ Sunday Special for another $4,721 adding to his more than $3.75 million in lifetime online earnings. Angel ‘ChromeKing’ Lopez (#92) Angel Lopez broke through into the top 100 this week for the first time, rising 16 spots to a career-high ranking of #92. Lopez used a flurry of PLB-qualifying cashes in recent weeks to propel himself up the rankings. It got started with a third-place finish in the October 21 edition of the WSOP.com Tuesday Showdown for $6,398. He followed that up with a run in the WSOP Circuit Event #11 ($250,000 NLH Main Event) for $1,319. Then, he went on a three-tournament tear in earl November picking up points in bulk. First, a deep run in the November 2 WSOP.com $100,000 GTD Sunday brought him $2,707. He followed that up two days later with a third-place finish in the PokerStars NJ $250 Super Tuesday for $2,707. Finally, he capped it all off with a victory in the BorgataPoker.com Mega $535 Tuesday and taking home the $5,759 first-place prize.

  2. It was another prolific month for New Jersey’s #1-ranked online grinder Daniel ‘centrfieldr’ Lupo. Lupo (3,975.55 PLB points) managed to earn results in over 70 tournaments during June, 12 of which he finished in the top three spots. His two largest cashes of the month came from a pair of runner-up finishes. The first came on June 13 in WSOP’s OC Event #46, the $85,000 NLH High Roller, where he added $17,333 to his bankroll and 211.88 PLB points to his total. Then he finished in second again on June 25 during OC Event #94, the $100,000 Sunday Re-entry, for another $24,234/273.30. The latter was Lupo’s top score for the month. In total, Lupo secured 12 PLB-qualifying scores for a total of 1,439.67 PLB points, helping him maintain a thin 119.54 lead over the #2-ranked Michael ‘Gags30’ Gagliano. Galliano (3,856.01), for his part, has been taking time off of the online grind, instead opting to spend his time taking shots at glory during the 49th Annual World Series of Poker. While that doesn’t do anything to help his PLB score, ‘Gags30’ has managed four live scores during the series including bubbling the final table with a 10th-place finish in Event #20: $5,000 No Limit Hold’em for over $27,000. Landing in the #3 spot, David ‘dehhhhh’ Coleman (3,818.05) managed to book sixteen four-figure scores in June. However, his highlight cash for the month was not one of his seven podium finishes. Instead, it came from his seventh-place score in WSOP.com’s OC Event #46, the $85,000 High Roller where he took home $5,147 and 99.92 PLB points. Coleman’s grind brought him just a few dollars shy of $45,000 in earnings during the month and has him within 40 PLB points of catching Gagliano for the #2 spot Yong ‘ykwon17’ Kwon (3,677.31) seemingly couldn’t lose in the month of June. He posted 57 results, 18 of which he finished in the top 3 spots. Of those 18, Kwon won half of them outright. His best two cashes of the month came within two days of each other. First up, Kwon won WSOP.com’s June 17 edition of the $12,500 Weekly Saturday for $4,943. Then on June 19 he backed that up with another win in the PokerStars NJ $250 Super Tuesday for $4,934. In addition to being the #4-ranked player in New Jersey, Kwon is the #349-ranked player in the world. New Jersey’s top 5 is completed this month Jason ‘JLaw’ Lawhun (3,496.89). Lawhun had 12 PLB-qualifying cashes including a monthly high score of $5,349 and 124.50 PLB points in the BorgataPoker.com Mega $535 Tuesday. In fact, the bulk of Lawhun’s June success came on the BorgataPoker.com client as he secured back-to-back runner-up finishes in the Tuesday and Thursday $535 Megas during the week of June 6. Both of which were good for over $4,000. If Lawhun’s July grind turns out anywhere close to his June results, he’ll surpass $900,000 in lifetime earnings as he’s only $13,500 away from that achievement.

  3. Another month of an incomplete roster of New Jersey grinders ended the same way June did. Daniel 'centrfieldr' Lupo tops the charts for another month (4.275.97 PLB points) and is the only player in the state over the 4,000 point benchmark. Lupo achieved five wins in July topped off by a $12,950 result on PokerStarsNJ. The NJ Summer Series $1,000 High Roller on July 24 attracted 36 of the state's best and Lupo emerged victoriously by beating competitors Michael 'JohnnnyDrama' Haberman and Michael 'Gags30' Gagliano on the tournament podium. Overall, Lupo earned 12 top-3 finishes and his career online earnings are up to $1.765 million. David 'dehhhhh' Coleman jumped over Gagliano to take second place for this month. Coleman was in Las Vegas for a week at the start of July and overcame the lack of volume to achieve 12 medals and three golds. The last Sunday of the month proved to be a profitable one. Coleman took third place in the PokerStarsNJ $10,000 GTD High Roller and the NJ Summer Series Main Event to top $12,700 in gross earnings. He wasn't done there. The partypokerNJ $40,000 GTD ended with Coleman in the winner's circle to collect the $7,455 first-place prize. Gagliano fell a spot in the rankings but still had himself a productive month. In only a week of play, Gagliano won the NJ Summer Series $25,000 GTD Six-Max for $6,056 and then place third in events on partypokerNJ and PokerStarsNJ. Gagliano's summer in Las Vegas featured six cashes with the best result coming in the $5,000 NLH Big Blind Ante event where he took 10th place for $27,208. Jason 'JLaw' Lawhun and Yong 'ykwon17' Kwon traded spots on the leaderboard at the fourth and fifth positions. Lawhun jumped a spot thanks in part to a full month of volume which equaled 37 cashes. Two of those scores were wins including a July-ending triumph in the $7,500 GTD KO on WSOP.com. The win came with $3,225 to put Lawhun within $80,000 of cracking the $1 million mark in career online earnings. Kwon didn't jump online until the second to last weekend in July. In that span, he gained a single win on partypokerNJ. Overall, his career earnings are up $1.6 million effective, leaving him only $70,000 behind Jeremy 'Jermz' Danger for New Jersey's all-time tournament winner. Ryan 'shipthesherb' Hohner held onto sixth place for another month. Hohner cashed a few times upon his return to New Jersey but is awaiting his first major post-WSOP score. While in Las Vegas for the full summer, Hohner cashed in the WSOP Main Event for $33,305 in 413th place to close out his campaign. Seventh place in the NJ rankings belongs to Haberman. Two wins in the $30 $7,000 GTD R&A on WSOP.com for $6,472 total are the primary highlights of Haberman's online month. He also took third in the WSOP.com $100,000 GTD Sunday Special on July 23 for $10,322. On the live side, Haberman also cashed in the Main Event in the same pay slot as Hohner for his 359th place result. Ted 'ol muggins' Ely jumped back into the rankings with his eighth-place standing. Ely's July included 12 podium results and two wins. The best of the bunch was the July 12 PokerStarsNJ $7,000 GTD Nightly where Ely claimed the $2,364 first-place prize. 'Thatgood45' also joined the top-10 after a strong five wins in July. 'senor stinks' completes the top-10 for the second month in a row.

  4. There was another $160,000 in total prize pools on the schedule during PokerStars third annual New Jersey Championship Of Online Poker. In the largest tournament scheduled for the day, Event #25 ($350 NLHE Sunday Special), ‘fireball1998’ captured his second NJCOOP title in as many days and $14,308.74 for the largest single score of the day for the series. He bested the 224 player field in the seven and a half hour contest, finally defeating ‘mocbel’ heads-up. ‘mocbel’ earned $10,689.97 as the runner-up making them the only other player on the day to earn five-figures in the series. The final table was stacked with talent including Michael ‘Gags30’ Gagliano who finished in ninth for $1,388.80 for his ninth cash of the series. Just ahead of him is the red-hot Dan ‘R@zzleDazz1e’ DiZenzo fell in eighth place for $1,858.92. DiZenzo already has four top three NJCOOP finishes in 2018, including a title. The first event completed on Sunday was Event #23 ($100 Mixed NLHE/PLO Six Max) where 133 runners created a prize pool of $12,209.40. ‘JohnnyMania’ was the last player standing and ended up with a $3,174.50 first place prize. PocketFiver ’senor stinks’ finished as the runner-up, hauling in $2,136.64 for his fourth NJCOOP cash of the series. The score puts ‘senor stinks’ under $25,000 away from his $500,000 lifetime earnings badge. Also making the final six was Yong ‘iFoldN0T’ Kwon who now has five NJCOOP final tables in 2018. Kwon finished in fourth for $1,037.79. Two spots earlier Michael ‘GUUUULP’ St. John bowed out in sixth for $549.42. In Event #24 ($150 NLHE Win The Button), the #3-ranked player in the United States Daniel ‘AvaGray’ Lupo booked his first 2018 NJCOOP victory for $4,167.31. To this point in the series Lupo has a first, second and third place finish among his six cashes. The runner-up was ‘LookAtMyDabx’ for $3,175.92. Also, PocketFivers ‘ROU$EY’ and Ted ‘TobogganM.D.’ Ely climbed into the final table falling in eighth and ninth place respectively. A pair of PocketFivers went one-two in Event #26 ($200 NLHE Progressive Super KO). Daryl ‘jordanofpkr’ Black outlasted Anthony ‘FlawlessBINK’ Maio to take the title and $3,995.69 (+ $4,074.14 in bounties) for one of the largest scores on the day. Main was denied a second 2018 NJCOOP title but received $3,083.00 (+ $1,388.82 in bounties) to add to his stellar series earnings. There were 137 players in the final tournament on the schedule. Event #27 ($100 NLHE Sunday Supersonic Hyper Turbo) may have been the last to start but with its fast structure, it finished well before midnight with the winner ’cl1ckinbtns’ going to sleep with $2,697.82 more in his account. Another PocketFiver ‘ADMSnackBar’ took the silver for $2,056.02 as he continues his climb to $1 million in lifetime earnings. Daniel ‘loxonbagel’ Buzgon finished in fourth for $1,194.20 for his third NJCOOP cash. Event #23 ($100 Mixed NLHE/PLO Six Max) Entries: 133 Prize pool: $12,209.40 1.

  5. New Jersey’s Ryan ‘shipthesherb’ Hohner has taken over the top spot in the PocketFives United States Online Poker Rankings. After putting in light volume through the month of March, Hohner hit the online felts hard in the month of April, racking up 28 cashes - eight of which were for four-figures or better. His spotlight cash came at the end of the month when he took the bronze in the WSOP.com $50,000 Monthly Sunday Six Max for $8,461 and 136.22 PLB points. That came just one week after taking down the PokerStars NJ $200 Sunday Special for $6,450 and 173.21. Hohner’s recent productivity has helped elevate him to a career-high worldwide ranking of #197 in the world. Hohner currently sits with 4,304.66 total PLB points, holding nearly a 119 point lead over the #2-ranked David ‘dehhhhh’ Coleman. United States Online Poker Rankings Top 10 RANK PLAYER POINTS 1 Ryan ‘shipthesherb’ Hohner 4304.66 2 David ‘dehhhhh’ Coleman 4185.69 3 Yong ‘ykwon17’ Kwon 4086.77 4 Michael ‘Gags30’ Gagliano 4084.05 5 Jon ‘itsmejon’ Borenstein 3987.75 6 Jed ‘JCHAK’ Hoffman 3979.91 7 Daniel ‘centrfieldr’ Lupo 3908.17 8 Vladimir ‘Donate_here’ Alexandrov 3805.51 9 'Lav519' 3797.56 10 Brian 'bexel' Sherrier 3727.5 Coleman also put in a large amount of volume on the regulated New Jersey online poker sites, turning in nine top-three finishes out of his 43 total cashes in April. He posted nineteen four-figure cashes in the month with a highlight score of $7,846 for his runner-up finish in the WSOP.com $30,000 Tuesday Showdown. Coleman also took home outright wins in four tournaments resulting in scores of $3,390, $6,435, $6,188 and $3,023. He currently sits less than $6K away from eclipsing $1.8M in total career online earnings. Yong ‘ykwon17’ Kwon jumped up to the #3 rank in the U.S.A. in April after putting together a nice month that included 59 cashes, 16 of which were good for podium finishes. He started the month off with four outright victories in the first week including a win in the WSOP.com $20,000 Weekly Tuesday for $9,828. However, that wasn’t Kwon's largest cash of the month as he also went on to take down the April 12 edition of the WSOP.com Spring OC #36 for another $12,918 and 214.79 PLB points. He chased in nine PLB qualifying tournaments to amass a total of 4,086.77. Kwon needed every bit of that to surpass perennial United States online poker rankings leader Michael ‘Gags30’ Gagliano who sits ranked at #4 this month with 4,084.05 PLB points. Gagliano didn’t put in a full online grind in April, but what he did do reaped major rewards. ‘Gags’ only posted 13 total cashes in the month, six of which were top-three finishes. Of those finishes, four of those were outright wins. His top score of the month was a victory in the April 24 edition of the WSOP.com $30,000 Tuesday Showdown for $13,450 and 211.74 PLB points. In total, Gagliano banked over $55,000 in the month. Finishing off the top five is last month’s #1-ranked Jon ‘itsmejon’ Borenstein. Borenstein started off the month strong with a runner-up finish in the WSOP.com $50,000 Monthly Sunday for $14,858 and 195.05 PLB points. He also found success over on partypoker, taking down the April 26 edition of the Mega $320 Thursday for $2,824. In total, Borenstein had a successful month with 41 cashes, 12 of which were for four-figures or better.
  6. The United States Online Poker Rankings takes a look at the top online players in the current legalized and regulated markets available in the U.S. For the second month in a row New Jersey’s Ryan ‘shipthesherb’ Hohner sits atop the leaderboard for the PocketFives United States Online Poker Rankings. Hohner’s (4,597.95 PLB points) been finding plenty of success online in the last month with 13 four-figure cashes and a pair of five-figure scores since the beginning of May. His spotlight score was a victory in Event #27 of PokerStars New Jersey Spring Championship of Online Poker where he not only added an NJSCOOP title to his resume but also $16,827. He backed that up in the May 29 edition of the WSOP.com Tuesday Showdown, picking up the win and an additional $12,049. Hohner has accumulated 14 PLB-qualifying cashes since the beginning of May resulting in an impressive 1683.90 PLB bump, good enough to rank him not just #1 in the United States but #182 in the world. Additionally, this month Hohner earned his $1M badge, soaring over the $1,000,000 lifetime earnings mark. If all that wasn’t enough for the New Jersey grinder, he also made his way to Las Vegas for the World Series of Poker, finishing in 155th place in the largest live tournament of all time, The Big 50, for over $7,000. United States Online Poker Rankings Top 10 RANK PLAYER POINTS 1 Ryan 'shipthesherb' Hohner 4597.95 2 Daniel 'centrfieldr' Lupo 4364.26 3 Yong 'ykwon17' Kwon 4244.85 4 David 'dehhhhh' Coleman 4143.13 5 Matthew 'MattEMenz' Mendez 3986.00 6 Mike 'Lav519' Lavenburg 3964.95 7 Michael 'Gags30' Gagliano 3956.22 8 Jon 'itsmejon' Borenstein 3953.03 9 Vladimir 'Donate_here' Alexandrov 3778.16 10 Brian 'bexel' Sherrier 3687.06   Not far behind Hohner is Daniel ‘centrfieldr’ Lupo (4,364.26), currently the #2-ranked player in the U.S. Lupo absolutely crushed the recently completed PokerStars NJSCOOP earning himself five titles including a five-figure score in Event #4-H ($300, NLHE Sunday Special) for $12,263. More recently, Lupo has been grinding the WSOP.com OC series, taking down Event #7 ($50,000 Sunday 6 Max) for $20,336 and 291.09 PLB points. Holding in the #3 spot is Yong ‘ykwon17’ Kwon (4244.85) who not only has not only been on a non-stop online grind since the beginning on May, right through the first weeks of June but manages to add a World Series of Poker bracelet to his resume. Kwon topped the 1,965 player field to take down WSOP Event #7: $400 WSOP.com Online No Limit Hold’em for a career-high cash of $165,263. Not only did Kwon have to deal with some of the elite online grinders but both Dan ‘MeatJustice’ O’Brien and 15-time WSOP gold bracelet winner Phil ‘lumestackin’ Hellmuth made the final table. In the end, Kwon stood alone claiming the first online bracelet of 2019. David ‘dehhhhh’ Coleman (4143.13) slipped back to the #4 spot this month however he still had a remarkable run in the month of May. He won back-to-back NJSCOOP titles when he took down Event #39-H ($100 NLHE SuperSonic Hyper-Turbo) for $2,429 and then finished in first the next day in Event #40-H ($100 NLHE Nightly Stars Wrap-Up) for another $4,269. In between those two title runs, he also won the Sunday $35K GTD over on BorgataPoker.com for another $7,455. He has yet to produce an online result in the month of June, however, he did make a deep live run in the 2019 WSOP Millionaire Maker for over $4,500. Rounding out the top 5 is Matthew ‘MattEMenz’ Mendez (3986.00) who also boosted his ranking with a pair of NJSCOOP title runs. He took down his first NJSCOOP by winning Event #37-L ($50 NLHE Main Event) for $6,761 and 200.00 PLB points. The same day he closed out Event #38-H ($150 Pot Limit Omaha Six Max) for another $3,545.

  7. After his World Series of Poker online bracelet win earlier in June, New Jersey’s Yong ‘ykwon17’ Kwon (aka ‘LuckySpewy1’) sits atop the PocketFives United States Online Poker Rankings. Kwon (5,909 PLB points) had a stellar start to the month thanks to his June 2 victory in WSOP Event #7 ($400 Online NLHE Bracelet Event) where he took home a career-high cash of $165,263, 1,008.46 PLB points and his first World Series of Poker gold bracelet. Since that score, Kwon continued to pile up PLB points by as he picked up outright victories in eight different online events, including WSOP.com’s OC #35 ($300,000 GTD Player Appreciation Tournament) where he earned his second six-figure score of the month ($121,730) and another hefty dose (719.11) of PLB points. While other players opted to put in a live grind in Las Vegas at the Rio, Kwon continued his online grind throughout the month of June and it really paid off. Not only is he currently sitting as the #1-ranked player in the US, he’s ranked a career-best #82 in the world and he also added over $352,000 in earnings during the month. Now Kwon sits just $10K shy of $2.5m in lifetime career earnings and should he continue to grind as he did in June, he’s likely to be a major player in the U.S. Online Poker Rankings for many months to come. United States Online Poker Rankings Top 10 RANK PLAYER POINTS 1 Yong ‘ykwon17’ Kwon 5909 2 Daniel ‘centrfieldr’ Lupo 5622 3 Ryan ‘shipthesherb’ Hohner 4799 4 Vladimir ‘Donate_here’ Alexandrov 4498 5 Michael ‘Gags30’ Gagliano 3901 6 David ‘dehhhhh’ Coleman 3836 7 Mike ‘Lav519’ Lavenburg 3772 8 Jon ‘itsmejon’ Borenstein 3739 9 Matthew ‘MattEMenz’ Mendez 3593 10 Michael 'JohnnnyDrama' Haberman 3583 Sitting in the #2 spot in the U.S. is Daniel ‘centrfieldr’ Lupo (5,622) who, like Kwon, celebrated a World Series of Poker bracelet victory in June as well. On June 20, the New Jersey online grinder took down WSOP Event #48 ($500 Online NLHE Turbo) for $145,273 and his first gold bracelet. Lupo picked up 12 PLB-qualifying cashes including highlight victories in the June 3 WSOP.com OC #7 ($50,000 NLH Sunday Six Max) for $20,336 and 291.09 PLB points and OC #100 ($50,000 NLH Tuesday Showdown) for another $19,511 and 207.26 PLB points. In total, Lupo pulled in over 40 cashes for just over $249,000 for the month. The victory also catapulted Lupo to a new career-high worldwide ranking where he currently sits at #89 in the world. After spending two months in the #1 spot, Ryan ‘shipthesherb’ Hohner (4,799) falls to the #3 ranking this month. It’s completely understandable as Hohner spent part of June in Las Vegas playing live at the World Series of Poker and putting in light online volume. However, when Hohner was online he really made it count. He racked up four PLB qualifying scores including four four-figure scores during WSOP.com’s OC. One of Hohner’s spotlight scores came during WSOP.com’s OC #99 ($85,000 NLH High Roller) where he finished in fifth place taking home $9,550 and 131.55 PLB points. Like both Kwon and Lupo, Hohner is also at a current all-time high in the worldwide rankings, currently sitting at #140. Vladimir ‘Donate_here’ Alexandrov (4,498) surged into the #4 spot in the U.S. with the help of a couple of final table appearances during the WSOP.com OC series. On June 24, Alexandrov finished in fourth place in Event # 92 ($50,000 NLH) for $11,369 and 177.98 PLB points. He then backed it up two days later with another fourth-place result in Event #99 ($85,000 NLH High Roller) for $11,938 and 150.39 PLB points. Alexandrov accumulated eight PLB qualifying scores in June putting him only 301 points behind Hohner. Wrapping up the current top 5 is Michael ‘Gags30’ Gagliano (3,901). After recording some early cashes in the live arena at the World Series of Poker early in June, ‘Gags’ turned his attention back to the online grind later in the month. In total, the New Jersey pro recorded seven online results, three of which were good for PLB points including a victory in the June 23 edition of the PokerStars NJ Sunday Special for $6,900 and 173.21 PLB points.

  8. It’s been years since an American, playing online poker inside the United States, took down the Monthy PLB award. Sure, Alex Foxen, an American, took home the award just last month but he was playing from his home in Canada. However, since Black Friday it’s been nearly impossible for a player grinding the regulated U.S. online poker sites available to them to add a monthly PLB achievement to their resume - but in June, it happened. New Jersey-based online pro Yong ‘ykwon17’ Kwon (3,129 PLB points) not only rose to the top of the U.S. Online Poker Rankings, but he grinded his way to the June Monthly PLB award thanks to a pair of major six-figure scores - one of which was good for a World Series of Poker gold bracelet. The stars seemingly aligned allowing for Kwon’s June success. PokerStars' and partypoker’s spring series had come to an end allowing many major players to take some time away from the online grind. Additionally, many regular online pros, including the likes of ‘lena900’ and Patrick ‘pleno1’ Leonard, heading out to Las Vegas to take a shot in the 2019 World Series of Poker. Those factors wouldn’t be enough. Kwon had to crush the month of June and he did just that. As previously mentioned, Kwon took down WSOP Event #7 ($400 NLHE Online Bracelet Event) for a career-high cash of $165,263 and a massive 1,008 PLB haul. He followed that up a week later by winning WSOP.com’s OC #35 ($300,000 GTD Player Appreciation Tournament) for another $121,730 and 799.11 PLB points. In total, Kwon registered 10 PLB-qualifying cashes all of which were good for at least four-figures bringing him over $352,000 in total earnings for the month. His performance and results in New Jersey brought him over 3,000 PLB points and were good enough to lead the entire world in the month of June. PocketFives June Monthly PLB Leaderboard RANK PLAYER POINTS 1 Yong 'ykwon17' Kwon 3129 2 Daniel 'centrfieldr' Lupo 2556 3 Patrick 'thebigdog09' Brooks 2417 4 'x_zola25' 2391 5 Chris 'Gettin Daize' Oliver 2165 6 Jordan 'JWPRODIGY' Westmorland 2090 7 Jerry 'perrymejsen' Odeen 1919 8 'Sheater' 1877 9 'panic.player' 1709 10 Doug 'OU_dlanger610' Lang 1707 If it weren’t amazing enough that Kwon would take the June title, another New Jersey player rose to the #2 spot this month. Daniel ‘centrfieldr’ Lupo (2,556) also leveraged a WSOP bracelet win for big time PLB points when he celebrated a victory in the WSOP Event #46 ($500 NLHE Turbo Online Bracelet Event) for $145,274 and 891.52 PLB points. Lupo also managed nine outright victories in June for nearly $250,000 in total earnings, helping him hit a career-high worldwide ranking of #89 in the world. The UK’s #7-ranked online player Patrick ‘thebogdog09’ Brooks (2,417) finished the month in third place. His highlight score of the month came with an outright victory in the June 23 edition of the PokerStars High Roller Club ($1,050 Sunday Warm-Up) for $31,485 and 387.30 PLB points. Brooks put in a massive grind throughout June, registering 144 cashes for over $136,000 in total earnings. He currently sits ranked at #61 in the world, just down from his career high of #49. The #4 spot in June went to Denmark’s #1-ranked player ‘x_zola25’ (2,391). ‘x_zola25’ had nine PLB-qualifing cashes including a victory in PokerStars UFC KO Poker Series 22 ($530 NLHE High Roller) for $18,212 and 316.23 PLB points. He also managed a pair of other High Roller victories earlier in the month when he took down the June 10 edition of the PokerStars High Roller Club $530 Daily Supersonic for $12,785 and completed the feat again on June 14 in the High Roller Club $530 Bounty Builder for another $10,966. Closing out the top 5 for the month of June is former #1-ranked PocketFiver Chris ‘Getting Daize’ Oliver (2,165). Oliver picked up a spotlight victory in the June 16 edition of the PokerStars High Roller Club $530 Sunday 500 for $22,414 and 340.59 PLB points as one of his 11 podium finishes in the month.
  9. 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.

His biggest score came in July 22 when he took sixth place in the WSOP NJ $30,000 Weekly Sunday [Re-entry, 6 Max] for $3,287 and 74.48 points. On July 31, Lupo won the WSOP NJ $7,000 Daily [R&A] for $2,830 and 102.39 points. Vladimir ‘Donate_here’ Alexandrov advanced his ranking by one spot, moving up from last update’s #4 position to #3. His volume wasn’t as great as some of the others to make the top 10, but Alexandrov made up for it with some bigger results. Since our last update, Alexandrov has had scores of $7,541, $7,463, $7,261, and $5,920. He won two tournaments on July 17, won another on July 18, and then a fourth on July 22. Of those big scores, the largest came from a fifth-place finish in the WSOP NJ $50,000 Monthly Sunday [Re-entry, 6 Max], also earning him 116.17 points. With Alexandrov’s rise to the #3 spot, Ryan ‘shipthesherb’ Hohner dropped back to #4. David ‘dehhhhh’ Coleman comes in at #5 and he moved up one spot after being at #6 the last time we checked in. Of note, Michael ‘Gags30’ Gagliano dropped out of the top 10 altogether, falling from #5 to what is currently #13. Mike ‘Lav519’ Lavenburg also fell out of the top 10, going from #7 to #16. Those two departures made way for Matt ‘papamat25’ Iles (#9) and Jason ‘JLaw’ Lawhun (#10) to move into the top 10 of the PocketFives United States Online Poker Rankings.

  10. It’s another month at the top of the PocketFives United States Online Poker Rankings for New Jersey online poker grinder Yong ‘ykwon17’ Kwon. After taking the first couple of weeks in August off, Kwon soon himself back on the online grind picking up PLB-qualifying scores in bunches. Throughout the second half of the month, Kwon racked up four qualifying scores and nine cashes worth four-figures or more. Kwon’s highlight score was a final table finish in the August 14 edition of the WSOP.com Tuesday Showdown where he picked up $4,810. In total, he amassed of over $27,000 in cashes for the month. [ptable zone="Global Poker Article Ad"][ptable zone="888poker NJ"][ptable zone="GG Poker"] Kwon’s September is shaping up to be more of the same with two first-place finishes already under his belt including a victory in the September 10 Super Tuesday on PokerStarsNJ for $4,806. His success not only has him as the #1-ranked player in the U.S., but he also sits at #55 in the world. United States Online Poker Rankings Top 10 RANK PLAYER POINTS 1 Yong 'ykwon17' Kwon 5409 2 Daniel 'centrfieldr' Lupo 5339 3 Vladimir ‘Donate_here’ Alexandrov 4847 4 David ‘dehhhhh’ Coleman 4586 5 Ryan ‘shipthesherb’ Hohner 4267 6 Jon ‘itsmejon’ Borenstein 3592 7 Michael ‘JohnnnyDrama’ Haberman 3579 8 Jason ‘JLaw’ Lawhun 3496 9 Michael 'Gags30' Gagliano 3327 10 Matthew ‘MattEMenz’ Mendez 3282 In past months, since his WSOP online bracelet win, Kwon has held a commanding lead in the rankings. This month, however, the #2-ranked Daniel ‘centrfieldr’ Lupo closed the gap and currently sits only 70 PLB points behind Kwon. It’s been a good month for Lupo who finds himself sitting at a career-high rank of #57 in the world. His rise in the rankings can be attributed to nine PLB-qualifying cashes, three of which were outright victories. His largest score in August was his victory in the August 12 edition of WSOP.com’s $30,000 Weekly Sunday Six Max where Lupo took home a $12,852 score. Two weeks later he nearly repeated the feat, coming up just short finishing as the runner up in the same tournament for another $7,229 payday. Another New Jersey player sitting at a career-high in the Worldwide Rankings is Vladimir ‘Donate_here’ Alexandrov. Alexandrov maintains his #3 ranking in the U.S. for another month but rose to #87 in the world on the back of 11 PLB-qualifying cashes in August. In total, he accumulated 1,220.63 points and just over $66,500 in the month. Even though he had four victories in the month, his largest score came from his runner-up finish in the August 19 edition of WSOP.com’s $100,000 GTD Sunday where he won $17,624 and 222.47 PLB points. David ‘dehhhhh’ Coleman jumped up one spot in the U.S. Rankings to #4 by amassing a string of four-figure score in August. Coleman grinded his way to 22 four-figure scores in a month where he added over $76,000 to his already impressive $2.29 million in career online earnings. Coleman also picked up a five-figure cash when he defeated Daniel Lupo heads up in the August 26 WSOP.com $30,000 Weekly Sunday and picked up $12,852. Like a number of his peers, Coleman is enjoying a career-high rank in the Worldwide Rankings, currently sitting at #104 in the world. After taking some time off in July, Ryan ‘shipthesherb’ Hohner added a little more volume in August. Dropping to the #5 rank, Hohner still managed to pick up some impressive scores as well three outright victories. His spotlight score for the month came on August 14 when he took down the WSOP.com $20,000 Weekly Tuesday for just over $9,000 and 178.01 PLB points. Hohner’s September is headed in the right direction as well having just locked up a five-figure score in the September 9 $30,000 Weekly Sunday on WSOP.com for $13,870.

  11. Yet again, Yong 'ykwon17' Kwon (aka 'LuckySpewy1'), is atop the PocketFives United States Online Poker Rankings, as he continues to crush tournaments out of New Jersey. Kwon has 5,205 points, which is ore than 300 points ahead of Daniel 'centrfieldr' Lupo in second place. Kwon has been charging hard in the online poker streets daily, and we don’t expect he’ll be slowing down anytime soon, especially with the WSOP.com Fall Online Championships running for much of October. [ptable zone="Global Poker Article Ad"][ptable zone="888poker NJ"][ptable zone="GG Poker"] Kwon has been a fixture on the podium of online poker tournaments in recent weeks, with 22 top-three finishes dating back to September 1. Over that time period, he has seven victories. Kwon's most recent win came in the PokerStars NJ Sunday High Roller [6-Max] - $500, $8,000 Gtd on October 6, when he took first place for $5,640 and 106.21 points. On September 26, he won the PokerStars NJ $250 Thursday Thrill [Progressive KO], $5,000 Gtd for $1,767 and 69.11 points. Kwon’s biggest score dating back to the beginning of September was a third-place finish in the WSOP.com $30,000 Weekly Sunday [Re-entry, 6 Max] on September 23 for $6,837 and 122.45 points. Overall, Kwon now has more than $2.6 million in lifetime online tournament earnings.

As you can expect, Kwon also leads the New Jersey Online Poker Rankings, which has the exact same top 10 leaderboard as the U.S. Online Poker Rankings. It’s not until you get to #12 on the U.S. Online Poker Rankings leaderboard that you find someone from outside of New Jersey. That someone would be David ‘bewater’ Goodman who plays out of Nevada and is the new top-ranked player in the Nevada Online Poker Rankings after overtaking Jed ‘JCHAK’ Hoffman. Goodman has booked nine four-figure cashes going back to the start of September, including three wins for nearly $16,000 combined in a one-week span, all coming on WSOP.com. He won the $15,000 Weekly Friday [Re-entry, 6 Max] on September 14 for $5,294 and 128.62 points, the $15,000 Weekly Sunday Deepstack [R&A, Super Addon] on September 16 for $5,565 and 143.57 points, and the $15,000 GTD Circuit Warm-Up Turbo Deepstack [Re-entry] on September 21 for $4,855 and 132.87 points. Goodman also took fourth in the WSOP Circuit Event #12 - $100,000 NLH Double Stack 2x Re-entry (Official Ring Event) on September 29 for $7,262 and 142.25 points. Checking in on Pennsylvania, where regulated PA online poker is set to launch soon, Thai 'thaiha91' Ha is still atop the Pennsylvania Online Poker Rankings with 1,281 points.

  12. After two full weeks of online poker action, the WSOP.com’s Fall Online Championships concluded this weekend as '49ersuited' took down the $175K GTD Main Event for $55,120. For the better part of October, players from Nevada and New Jersey battled for more than $1 million in guaranteed prize pools over a schedule that saw 36 of the 37 events crush their guarantees. The enthusiasm for the Fall Online Championships saw U.S. based players eager to take shots in nearly every event. The WSOP.com's $1 million total prize pool guarantee was easily met as, over the course of two weeks, players generated prize pools of over $1.5 million. [ptable zone="NJ Online Poker Promos"][ptable zone="GG Poker"][ptable zone="Global Poker Article Ad"] The majority of the tournaments saw guarantees exceed by thousands of dollars, including the $175,000 Guaranteed Main Event. ’49ersuited’ was the biggest winner of the entire series. They outlasted the 280-entry field of the $525 buy-in, $175,000 guaranteed Main Event for a $55,120 payday. The $212,000 Main Event prize pool offered five of the final nine players five-figure scores including runner-up ‘bustinballs’ who after narrowly missing out on the victory, took home $31,800. ‘Shiraz007’ booked a $18,656 score for their third-place Main Event finish. Five-Figure Scores The Main Event wasn’t the only opportunity for players to take a shot at a high five-figure score. There were a number of Fall Online Championship winners that booked a bankroll boosting win. Very early in the series, ‘pashock’ defeated a field of 325 entries to take down Event #2 ($100,000 No Limit Hold’em Sunday Special Edition) for $27,846. In Event #7 ($50,000 Special Tuesday Showdown), the larger $500 buy-in made it so the 100 players field gave ‘burgersssss’ the opportunity to win the $24,223.29 first-place prize. New Jersey’s Mike ‘Lav519’ Lavenburg added to his $1.5 million in career earnings when on he won Event #18 ($100,000 No Limit Hold’em Sunday Special) for a massive $33,930 payday. The $320 tournament saw 254 entries generate a $130,500 prize pool, giving Lavenburg the third biggest payday of the entire series. Just ahead of Lavenburg was another US online poker pro as David ‘bewater’ Goodman won Event #23 - $85,000 No Limit Hold’em High Roller. The $1,000 buy-in had 78 players and 57 re-entries push the prize pool to over $128K and gave the #1-player in Nevada $36,743.62 for the victory. The amount was good enough to push Goodman up over $1.6 million in career earnings. Big Names Battling Over the course of two weeks, the Fall Online Championships saw some of the top-tier U.S. based online poker talent battle for the titles. New Jersey by-way-of Pennsylvania grinder Anthony ‘flawlessbink’ Maio was the winner in Event #4 - $25,000 No Limit Hold’em w/ Re-entry where he took home $9,435.06 for first while Nevada’s #3-ranked ‘Bamatide88’ took home the gold medal in Event #9 - $20,000 No Limit Hold’em Six Max for over $8,400. The United State’s current #2-ranked grinder Daniel ‘centrfieldr’ Lupo was the winner of the few PLO tournaments offered as he took down Event #28 - $10,000 PLO Six Max for $3,643.20 which helped him inch closer to the $3 million in career earnings milestone. Although he didn’t pick up a Fall Online Championships title, Yong ‘ykwon17’ Kwon, the #1-ranked player in the US, did cash in nine of the events, earning over $10K in the two weeks.

  13. New Jersey online grinder Yong ‘ykwon17’ Kwon’s reign atop the PocketFives United States Online Poker Rankings continues. After a busy October filled with both the WSOP.com’s Fall Online Championships and PokerStars NJ’s New Jersey Championship of Online Poker, Kwon sits atop the leaderboard with 5,227 points. Since our last update, Kwon accumulated eight more PLB-qualifying scores including a victory in the October 25 NJCOOP Event #37 ($150 NLHE Turbo) for $3,438 and 122.51 PLB points. His largest score over the past month came during the WSOP.com’s Fall OC $50,000 Special Tuesday Showdown where a final table finish brought him $5,382 and another 94.46 PLB points. During the month of October, Kwon racked up 19 five-figure scores for a total of more than $70,000 in earnings. In addition to being ranked #1 in the U.S., he currently sits ranked at #73 in the world and is rapidly approaching $2.7 million in career online earnings. U.S. Online Poker Rankings Top 10 RANK PLAYER POINTS 1 Yong ‘ykwon17’ Kwon 5,227 2 Daniel ‘centrfieldr’ Lupo 4,912 3 David ‘dehhhhh’ Coleman 4,828 4 Vladimir ‘Donate_here’ Alexandrov 4,586 5 Jon ‘itsmejon’ Borenstein 4,299 6 Mike ‘Lav519’ Lavenburg 4,198 7 Ryan ‘shipthesherb’ Hohner 4,031 8 Jason ‘JLaw’ Lawhun 3,924 9 Michael ‘Gags30’ Gagliano 3,731 10 Michael ‘JohnnnyDrama’ Haberman 3,634 Daniel ‘centrfieldr’ Lupo (4,912 points) once again sits right behind Kwon in the U.S. rankings. Like all serious New Jersey grinders, Lupo was active in the major online series, putting up big results and taking down titles. On October 17, he took down the PokerStars NJCOOP Event #19 ($100, NLHE Turbo) for $2,370 and 100.00 PLB points. Then, the very next day, he claimed a WSOP.com Fall OC title by winning Event #28 ($10,000 Pot Limit Omaha Six Max) for $3,643 and 110.20 PLB points. Lupo did capture a five-figure score with his runner-up finish in NJCOOP Event #15 ($1,000 NLHE High Roller Six Max) for $11,489, good for another 147.53 PLB points. [ptable zone="Global Poker Article Ad"][ptable zone="888poker NJ"][ptable zone="GG Poker"] Less than 100 points behind Lupo is David ‘dehhhhh’ Coleman (4,828) who not only ranks #3 in the U.S. but is sitting at a career-high ranking of #93 in the world. Coleman has been putting in heavy volume and it has been paying off. During the last week of October, Coleman finished top-three in four different NJCOOP tournaments. He won Event #32 ($200 NLHE Super Tuesday) for $6,554 and Event #47 ($75 NLHE Sunday SuperSonic SE) for $2,009. On the same day as his second NJCOOP title, Coleman also took down the WSOP.com $50,000 Monthly Sunday for another $23,408 and 270.46 PLB points. Coleman’s heater continued into the beginning of November as, since October 22, he has 12 top-three finishes - eight of which are good for wins. This includes a victory in the November 6 edition of the WSOP.com Tuesday Showdown for $17,036 and another 244.49 PLB points. Vladimir ‘Donate_here’ Alexandrov (4,586) keeps his spot at #4 in the U.S. again this month. Alexandrov also managed to pick up a pair of titles in October. First, on October 13 he won NJCOOP Event #7 ($150 NLHE Sunday SuperSonic SE) for $2,927 and 109.54 PLB points. Then three days later, he topped the field in WSOP.com’s Fall OC Event #22 ($20,000 NLHE R&A) for $8,179 and 173.05 PLB points. Alexandrov has had a nice start to his November, picking up a final table finish in the November 6 WSOP.com Tuesday Showdown for $4,782. Wrapping up the USA top 5 is Jon ‘itsmejon’ Borenstein (4,299), who moves up one spot from last month. Borenstein holds the honor of being the only player to capture three 2019 NJCOOP titles. His first came on October 15 in Event #10 ($250 NLHE Super Tuesday) for $7,341. He followed that up the very next day by taking down Event #15 ($1,000 NLHE High Roller Six Max) for $20,893. Then he wrapped up his series by winning Event #50 ($150 NLHE Dee Hyper-Turbo Six Max) for $2,775. New Jersey Online Poker Rankings Top 5 New Jersey online poker players.

  14. It’s been a good start to 2020 for New Jersey-based online grinder David ‘dehhhhh’ Coleman who sits atop the USA Online Poker Rankings for the second month in a row. Coleman (4,496 PLB points) picked up a pair of victories early in the month, taking down the January 10 edition of the PokerStars NJ Nightly Stars for $1,925 as well as the January 12 WSOP.com $10,000 Weekly Saturday for another $2,850. However, he picked up his biggest scores of January as the end of the month booking a pair of five-figure cashes in back-to-back fashion. First up, Coleman fell just short of taking down the $400 PokerStars NJ Winter Series Main Event, finishing as the runner-up for an $11,839 payday plus 188.20 PLB points. The very next day, on January 27, he again finished in second in WSOP.com’s $50,000 Monthly Sunday for $13,466 and another 183.01 PLB points. In total Colman racked up 48 results in the month, nine of which were good for podium finishes. Coleman pulled in just over $64,000 for the month, more than four times his earnings for December 2019. [ptable zone="Global Poker Article Ad"][ptable zone="888poker"][ptable zone="PokerStars NJ"] After a long stretch in the #1 spot in 2019, Yong ‘ykwon17’ Kwon (4,237 PLB points) spent his second month in a row in the #2 spot. Sitting just 259 PLB points behind Coleman, Kwon picked up some impressive January results. His biggest score of the month came on January 8 when he took down WSOP.com’s $20,000 Weekly Tuesday for $8,301. He nearly matched that later in the month when he finished in fifth in the WSOP.com $50,000 Monthly Sunday for another $6,233. Kwon ended January with 12 five-figure cashes and six outright victories. He currently sits as ranked at #109 in the world. Daniel ‘centrfieldr’ Lupo (3,898 PLB points) jumped up one spot to #3 in the rankings, with the help of five PLB-qualifying cashes in January. On January 22 he took down Event #9 of the PokerStars NJ Winter Series ($30 NLHE Mini Super Tuesday) for $2,072 and 107.46 PLB points. He followed that up with a runner-up finish in the Winter Series $50 Mini Main Event for $2,521 and another 90.77 PLB points. Lupo had 16 cashes in the month, seven of which were good for four-figures. In total, he earned just over $15,500. Despite not putting in a lot of volume, Vladimir ‘Donate_here’ Alexandrov (3,867 PLB points) had a very successful start to 2020. He earned over $36,000 on the back of just 12 cashes. Alexandrov's spotlight score was his victory in the January 15 edition of the WSOP.com Tuesday Showdown for $10,788 and 189.63 PLB pints. He also picked up another $7,849 and 120.74 PLB points with his fourth-place finish in the WSOP.com $50,000 Monthly Sunday at the end of the month. He earned three victories in January and seven of his 12 results were for four-figures or more. Perhaps just one more PLB qualifying cash would have bumped him into third place for January as he finished just 31 PLB points behind Lupo. New Jersey grinder Jon ‘itsmejon’ Borenstein slipped two spots to wrap up the top five. His decline has nothing to do with his play because Borenstein appeared to take January off. With no results to speak of in January, Borenstein kept his top five ranking thanks to the strength of past performances including his two $20,000+ scores he had in December 2019.

Bibat picked up nine PLB-qualifying cashes in January to wrestle the top spot away from perennial contender David ‘bewater’ Goodman. Bibat’s biggest score of the month arrived on January 4 with his final table finish in WSOP.com’s $15,000 Weekly Friday for $2,447 and 68.08 PLB points. Bibat earned over $10,000 on 18 cashes in the month.

  15. 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.

His spotlight score came early in the month when he finished as the runner-up in February 2 edition of the WSOP.com $15,000 Weekly Saturday for $3,140.
