[caption width="300" align="alignleft"] Artem 'veeea' Vezhenkov is the top-ranked poker player in the world[/caption] By the slimmest of margins – 13 points to be exact – 'Artem 'veeea' Vezhenkov' leads the PocketFives Rankings. He is starting his third week at the top, but with a small lead, there could be a brand new #1 seven days from now. Vezhenkov is quickly nearing $5 million in career online tournament cashes and is fresh off a sixth place finish in the PokerStars Super Tuesday at the end of January for $27,000, which netted him 274 PLB Points. He is a three-time PocketFives Triple Crown winner who earned two of them in March of last year. 'veeea' has $3.3 million in career winnings on PokerStars alone and has 7,198 PLB Points. Second place in the Rankings belongs to 'C Darwin2', who has 7,186 PLB Points and trails 'veeea' by a baker's dozen. 'C Darwin2' was up seven spots this week to #2 in the world and finished fourth in a TCOOP Wrap-Up event for $62,000 and 435 PLB Points to help his cause. The same day 'veeea' finished sixth in the Super Tuesday, 'C Darwin2' took second for $89,000 and over 500 PLB Points. Two days prior, he won the Full Tilt Sunday Major. Needless to say, the Swede has been on a tear. Amazingly, four of the top five players in the rankings this week are from Sweden, with 'veeea' being the only exception. 'C Darwin2' calls Stockholm home and sits at $3.5 million in career online MTT winnings across almost 2,000 in the money finishes. Now, can he overtake 'veeea' for the #1 spot?

He was ranked as high as #6 on PocketFives last year and won a TCOOP $82 No Limit Draw event one week ago for $7,000. He also took 13th in the series' Main Event over the weekend and earned $12,000.
