  1. [caption width="640"] Andras 'probirs' Nemeth is the #4-ranked player in the world (PokerStars photo)[/caption] Fabrizio 'SixthSenSe19' Gonzalez continues to be the world's top-ranked online poker player, but a new threat has emerged to challenge the Uruguayan for world supremacy. After not being included in the PocketFives Rankings for the better part of four years, Andras 'probirs' Nemeth is back and now sits in the #4 spot. Nemeth not only came back to the rankings but put up some results as well. On Sunday alone he finished second in the $215 Bounty Builder on PokerStars for $12,144 and 208.84 PLB points, fifth in the PokerStars PLO Sunday Grand for $9,690/149.41 and then runner-up in the partypoker Super High Roller for $30,450 and 251.23. In the past 30 days, he's also won the partypoker Super High Roller ($53,250/421.31) and the PokerStars PLO Sunday Grand ($38,461/442.72). Gonzalez maintained his hold on the top spot for the fifth straight week despite not being able to add to his PLB total. He made the final table of the partypoker Six Max Turbo High Roller on November 8 and a $215 Turbo event on PokerStars, but neither result was big enough to improve his standing. A runner-up finish in the partypoker Heavyweight for $20,608 and 257.9 PLB points and a win in the WPN Extreme Tuesday for $10,3305/214.01 kept Alex 'alexd2' Dimitrov in second spot yet again. He now trails Gonzalez by 478.47 points. Joao Mathias 'joaomathias' Baumgarten maintained his hold on the #3-ranking. The former #1 player did so despite not managing to record a single qualifying cash over the past seven days. His closest calls came on partypoker last Sunday when he finished fifth in the Six Max High Roller and sixth in the High Roller. Nemeth's inclusion at #4 meant the rest of the list all moved down. 'lena900', who was #4 last week, dropped to #5 despite his victory in the partypoker Super High Roller for $47,125 and 380.79 points and runner-up finishes in a PokerStars $320 Six Max event for $6,287 and 131.79 and a partypoker High Roller for $9,250 and 147.53. He trails Nemeth by 28.7 points. The only other player to move into the top 10 this week was Canada'sJoel 'jbrown8777' Brown. A win in the partypoker Six Max High Roller on November 8 added $12,280 to his bankroll and 118.41 points to his total. He also managed a third place finish in the PokerStars Big $215 on November 12 for $5,741 and 122.63. The #1-ranked player in Canada is now just seven spots off of his all-time high of #3 in the world.

  2. [caption width="640"] Fabrzio ‘SixthSenSe19’ Gonzalez has been #1 for nearly 11 straight weeks (SHRPO photo)[/caption] It has been 75 days since Fabrizio 'SixthSenSe19' Gonzalez became the #1-ranked online poker player in the world and he doesn’t appear ready to let go of that position any time soon despite a full host of world class players doing their best to take it from him. Gonzalez didn’t put in a lot of volume over the last week, cashing just six times with only one of them being good enough to add to his PLB points total. Gonzalez finished 15th in the $300 buy-in Winning Poker Network Sunday Special for $4,100 and 139.26 points. He now sits 1,033.63 points ahead of his nearest competitor, Bulgaria’s Alex ‘alexd2’ Dimitrov. Dimitrov cashed 25 times this last week but with only one of them counting towards his PLB total, he failed to make up any ground on Gonzalez. Dimitrov’s sole big score came in the PokerStars Super-Sized Sunday where he finished sixth for $8,189 and 157.89 points. He’s now been sitting in the #2 spot for seven straight weeks. The next two spots belong to a pair of Swedish players who have both spent time at #1 in 2016. ‘C Darwin2’ sits third with 8,071.3 points while ‘lena900’ is right behind him with 8,351.54 points. ‘C Darwin2’ moved up from #4 thanks to his win in the partypoker $100,000 Guaranteed Super High Roller on Sunday. ‘C Darwin’ beat out 45 other players to win $42,550 and 339.12 points. He also had an eight place finish in the PokerStars Super Tuesday for $8,256/180.03.Meanwhile, ’lena900’ had just seven ITM finishes this week and none were big enough to add to his PLB total to fall from #3 to #4. Joao Mathias 'joaomathias' Baumgarten rounded out the top five. The sole Brazilian to crack the top 10, Baumgarten had 31 cashes this week, highlighted by the only one big enough to boost his PLB total. Baumgarten took down the 888 poker $50,000 QuarterBack event on December 8, beating 204 other players to win $9,207/223.61. Two players moved up into the top 10 this past week. Johannes 'Greenstone25' Korsar went from #11 to #9 while Ludovic 'ludovi333' Geilich hit #10 - his highest ranking ever. Andreas ‘r4ndomr4gs’ Berggren and Joel ‘jbrown8777’ Brown fell to #11 and #12 respectively.

  3. [caption width="641"] Fabrizio Gonzalez was the top online poker tournament player in the world in November (SHRPO photo)[/caption] For the last nine weeks Fabrizio ‘SixthSenSe19’ Gonzalez has been the #1-ranked player on PocketFives. His rise to the top spot came mostly from his PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker leaderboard win, but he hasn’t exactly been resting on that success. Nobody had a better November than Gonzalez as the Uruguayan pro topped the November PocketFives Leaderboard, beating out Anton Wigg, Alex Dimitrov and Andreas Beggren in the process. Gonzalez’s top 20 cashes in November (the monthly PLB is based on a player’s top 20 scores) included four wins, two runner-up finishes and 14 final tables. All told he earned $206,667 with nearly a quarter of that coming from a second place finish in the PokerStars Super Tuesday on November 15. In that event Gonzalez outlasted 374 other players before being defeated heads up by Russia’s ‘Stivi Ger’ to walk away with $50,523 and 404.55 PLB points. The next week he posted wins in the $2,600 buy-in partypoker Super High Roller and the $530 partypoker High Roller for a total of $75,265 and 747.49 PLB points. Gonzalez ended up beating out runner-up Anton 'AnteSvante' Wigg by 111.82 points. Wigg’s month was highlighted by his win the PokerStars French Championship of Online Poker. Wigg beat out 664 other players to win the FCOOP Event #26, €200 Six Max NLHE, for $23,221 and 366.34 PLB points. That win was one of six that he had in his top 20 finishes. He also managed two runner ups and a total of 16 final tables on his way to earning $133,030. Finishing just 64.47 points behind Wigg was the current #2-ranked player in the world, Alex 'alexd2' Dimitrov. The Bulgarian put in an incredible amount of volume in November, cashing a total of 165 times - more than double that of Wigg. His top 20 cashes included 11 wins, two runner-up finishes and all but one of them were a final table appearance. The higher volume comes from Dimitrov’s willingness to play almost any MTT running and results in many small scores. Still, he had five five-figure scores, including a $20,607.99 cash for his second place finish to ‘Lena900’ in the partypoker Heavyweight Main Event on November 7.

  4. [caption width="640"] Fabrizio 'SixthSenSe19' Gonzalez added over 1,000 points to his PLB total this week[/caption] Just over 10 days ago one player had a dominating Sunday in the partypoker High Roller and Super High Roller, winning both for just over $75,000. That player, ‘DrMikee’, was relatively unknown, making the feat even more special. It turns out that ‘DrMikee’ is actually the #1-ranked player in the world, Fabrizio ‘SixthSenSe19’ Gonzalez. Gonzalez was playing under the new screenname after his original partypoker account, ‘gotunagi19’, was compromised a week earlier. When the PocketFives Rankings were calculated last week, Gonzalez had yet to add the new screenname to his PocketFives account, so the scores weren’t included. Now they are and all it did for Gonzalez was dramatically increase the distance between himself and the rest of the field. The Super High Roller and High Roller wins were worth 350 and 397.49 PLB points respectively. He also managed to take down the PokerStars Fat Thursday for $14,499/282.84. He know has 9,887.83 PLB points and sits 1,205.72 points ahead of his closest competitor. That player is Alex ‘alexd2’ Dimitrov, who sits second in the rankings for the fifth consecutive week. The Bulgarian pro wracked up 36 total cashes this past week, but it was only the last one that earned him any PLB points. Dimitrov beat out 81 other players to win the $500 buy-in High Roller on the Winning Poker Network. That win earned him $13,125 and 229.13 points. The rest of top 10 this week looks very similar to last week. The only player to drop out of the top 10 was Joel 'jbrown8777' Brown, who ended up #11. The player moving up to take Brown’s spot was Anton 'AnteSvante' Wigg. The former EPT Copenhagen winner won the PokerStars Fat Tuesday for $15,200/282.84 and then finished fourth in the PokerStars PLO Sunday Grand for $14,162/178.41. Wigg brings the number of Swedish players in the top ten to five. ‘lena900’ is the highest ranking member of that group, coming in at #4. Former #1 ‘C Darwin2’ is now sixth, Andreas 'r4ndomr4gs' Berggren is eighth and Johannes 'Greenstone25' Korsar is tenth.

  5. [caption width="640"] Fabrzio ‘SixthSenSe19’ Gonzales is the #1-ranked player in the world for the third straight week.(SHRPO photo)[/caption] For the last three weeks Fabrizio ‘SixthSenS19’ Gonzalez has been sitting pretty atop the PocketFives Rankings and watched as the players below him were unable to mount much of challenge. That’s no longer the case. Gonzalez is still the #1-ranked player in the world, but Alex ‘alexd2’ Dimitrov moved up from #3 to #2 and is closing in on top spot. Dimitrov took down two PokerStars tournaments last Tuesday. The first was the Hot $215 where he walked away with $10285 and 231.95 PLB points. He followed that up immediately with a win in the Six Max $109 NLHE Hyper Turbo for $4,663 and 155.52 points. Two days later he finished as runner-up in the PokerStars Hot $162 for $4,708/119.03. His fourth, and final, qualifying cash of the week came on Sunday when he finished second in the 888poker $50,000 Turbo Mega Deep for $8,780/146.71. The big week moved him into second for the first time in his career. Gonzalez now sits 822.92 points ahead of Dimitrov, but recorded no qualifying cashes during the week. The gap between #2 and #3 isn’t nearly as wide. Joao Mathias 'joaomathias' Baumgarten, who was #2 last week, dropped to #3 but sits just 44.63 points behind Dimitrov. Baumgarten had two partypoker High Roller scores last week that allowed him to keep Dimitrov within striking distance. The first was a third place finish on Thursday in the $50,000 High Roller for $8,323/135.39. On Sunday he managed a seventh place finish in the Super High Roller for $6,638//119.49. Spots #4 and #5 continue to belong to the top-ranked players in Sweden, ‘C Darwin2’ and ‘lena900’. ‘C Darwin2’, who was #1 in late-September, had two five-figure scores this past Sunday. His first came in the Hot $215 on PokerStars. He beat out 503 other players to win $17,942 and 317.49 points. he then finished third in the partypoker High Roller for $6,180/117.39 and then wrapped up his day by winning the partypoker Super High Roller for $47,938 and 384.06 points. His fellow countryman ‘lena900’ booked four wins this past week to allow him to keep pace with the rest of the field. He started the week off with a win in the Winamax High Roller for $7,492/155.92. He then won the partypoker Heavyweight: Uppercut for $9,595/223.61 on Saturday. On Monday he won the PokerStars $215 Six Max Monday for $14,825/286.01 and the Hot $109 for $8,472/218.17. The only other change in the top 10 came from Joannes 'Greenstone25' Korsar who moved up to #9 after swapping spots with Joao 'joaosimaobh' Simao, who now sits at #10. Korsar is the fourth Swedish player in the top 10 while Simao, who signed on as a partypoker Ambassador this week, is the second Brazilian.

  6. [caption width="640"] Fabrzio ‘SixthSenSe19’ Gonzalez saw his lead atop the PocketFives Rankings shrink this week. (SHRPO photo)[/caption] Fabrizio 'SixthSenSe19' Gonzalez has now been the #1-ranked online poker player in the world but in the last week the two players right behind him, Alex ‘alexd2’ Dimitrov and 'C Darwin2', continue to move closer to the top spot. While Gonzalez and Dimitrov continue to hold down the top two spots, both did so without having recorded any scores over the past week that added to their PLB score. Gonzalez finished ITM just nine times while Dimitrov, known for putting in a higher volume than any other player in the top ten, cashed just 12 times with none of them earning more than 62 PLB points. Dimitrov closed the gap without scoring any additional PLB points as some of Gonzalez's older cashes fell off his score. Meanwhile, Sweden's 'C Darwin' however moved closer to Gonzalez thanks to two big scores. The first came on December 18 when he finished 11th in PokerStars Sunday Warm-Up for $3,263 and 148.19 PLB points. That same day he final-tabled the partypoker Six-Max Turbo High Roller for $6,240/117.96. Fellow Swede ‘lena900' maintained the #4 spot despite not recording a single cash all week. Brazilian Joao Mathias 'joaomathias' Baumgarten managed to record 37 cashes, but only one of them earned him enough points to add to his total. Baumgarten won the PokerStars Big $55 on December 14 for $9,734/243.52. Andras 'probirs' Nemeth and Anton 'AnteSvante' Wigg held on to the #6 and #7 spots respectively to leave the top seven spots unchanged from last week. Sweden's Andreas ‘r4ndomr4gs’ Berggren moved up from #11 to #8 based on two wins on December 15. He won the PokerStars.com Hot $33 for $4,294/160.34 and the Thursday Full KO on PokerStars.fr for $5,145/130.95. Johannes 'Greenstone25' Korsar was the only player to fall out of the top ten. Korsar went from #9 to #12.

  7. Another week has gone by and Fabrizio 'SixthSenSe19' Gonzalez continues to find himself as the #1-ranked online poker player in the world, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t contenders out there doing their best to dethrone him. Alex 'alexd2' Dimitrov continues to hold on to the #2 spot, but should he look in his rearview mirror he’ll find two hard charging Swedish grinders who have already had a taste of what it means to be #1. Gonzalez hung on to the top spot despite being unable to record a cash big enough to add to his total. His best finish last week came in the PokerStars PLO Sunday Grand where he finished eighth for $5,636. Dimitrov was nearly in the same boat as Gonzalez. The Bulgarian took down the PokerStars $162 Bounty Builder on November 29 for $4,709 and 145.69 PLB points to get his week off to a roaring start, but failed to have any of his other 41 cashes earn enough PLB points to add to his total. He sits 1,248.51 points behind Gonzalez. While those two were stagnant, ‘lena900’ and ’C Darwin2’ both made moves this week. ‘lena900’ went from #4 to #3 thanks to three big wins. On December 1 he took down both the PokerStars Thursday Full KO and the Winamax High Roller for a total of $13,845 and 312.12 points. That was just setting the table though for his win in the partypoker on Sunday for $24,928 and 394.72 points. Right behind him is ‘C Darwin2’, who came up from #6 to #4 thanks to three big scores, all within a 24 hour period. He started off by taking down the partypoker High Roller on November 27 for $15,797/224.72. That same night he wound up ninth in the partypoker Super High Roller for $5,688/107.87. The next day however saw the former #1-ranked player finish second in the partypoker High Roller for $27,288/283.77. All told he earned $48,773 and added 616.36 PLB points to his total. Canada’s Joel 'jbrown8777' Brown was the only player to move into the top 10 this week. Brown went from #11 to #7 thanks to a win in the $320 Six Max on PokerStars on November 29, a runner-up finish in the partypoker $20,000 Guaranteed Six Max on December 1 and another runner-up finsih, this time in the partypoker Super High Roller on December 4. Those three results earned him $45,756 and 518.18 PLB points. The only player to drop out of the top 10 was another Swede, Johannes ‘Greensteon25’ Korsar. He now sits in eleventh.

  8. [caption width="640"] Fabrizio 'SixthSenSe19' Gonzalez seems pretty comfortable at the top of the PocketFives Rankings[/caption] It might be harder to dislodge Fabrizio 'SixthSenSe19' Gonzalez from the #1 spot in the PocketFives Rankings than anybody imagined. The Uruguayan poker pro held onto the top spot this past week with only two cashes - and only one of them good enough to add to his lead. Gonzalez finished 109th in the PokerStars Mini Sunday Million but that had no impact on his score, but his first place finish in the 888 poker $45,000 Turbo Mega Deep earned him $9,243 and an additional 212.6 PLB points. He now has a 476.68 point lead on his closest competitor, Alex ‘alexd2’ Dimitrov. Dimitrov certainly did his best to try and close the gap this past week. Dimitrov, who is #2 for the third straight week, put in a full schedule of tournaments over the last seven day and found a good score in the PokerStars Sunday Grand, finishing fifth for $17,418/205.38. It was his only qualifying cash of the week. Continuing to hold on to the #3 spot Joao Mathias 'joaomathias' Baumgarten also had just a single cash strong enough to add to his PLB points total. The Brazilian won the PokerStars Big $215 last Wednesday to win $10,913 and earn 239.58 points. While the top three spots remained the same over the last week, the players sitting at #4 and #5 swapped spots. ‘lena900’, who won the October Monthly PLB crown, passed fellow Swede ‘C Darwin2’ on the strength of his win in the partypoker Heavyweight Uppercut for $9,500 and 223.61 and a runner-up finish in the PokerStars Omania High Roller for $7,986/152.03. Banking over 375 points in those two events while ‘C Darwin2’ did not record a single qualifying cash moved ‘lena900’ up to #4 an the #1 spot in Sweden. Swede’s also occupy the #6 and #7 spots. Andreas 'r4ndomr4gs' Berggren maintained his hold on #6 but Johannes 'Greenstone25' Korsar moved from #8 to #7. Berggren won the Winamax Monster Stack for $3,821/118.28 and finished fourth in the Winamax High Roller for $6,332/115.38. Korsar moved up after winning the PokerStars $109 Six Max Hyper Turbo on Sunday and finished sixth in 888 poker $100,000 Baby Whale for $4,616/112.47. Moving from #10 to #9 this week was former #1-ranked Nicolas ‘PokerKaiser’ Fierro. The Chilean poker pro moved up that one spot thanks not to his own work, but the aging scores of those around him. Conor '1_conor_b_1' Beresford fell from #9 to #10 after seeing some of his previous scores count for less. The British pro dropped despite banking $10,936/197.27 in the PokerStars $215 Monday Six Max.

  9. [caption width="640"] Fabrzio ‘SixthSenSe19’ Gonzales seems to quite comfortable sitting at #1 (SHRPO photo)[/caption] Just two weeks Uruguayan poker pro Fabrzio ‘SixthSenSe19’ Gonzales took over the #1 spot in the PocketFives Rankings for the first time and he doesn’t seem to be willing to let go of it any time soon. Gonzales maintained his hold on top spot this past week and has nearly a 1,000-point lead over his closest competitor. Gonzalez had just one cash this past week that was big enough to count toward his PLB score. He finished fourth in the $1,050 Sunday Grand Pot Limit Omaha event for $15,872 and 193.2 points. He now sits 930.61 ahead of the rest of the field. The player closest to Gonzalez is Brazil’s Joao Mathias ’joaomathias’ Baumgarten. The former #1-ranked player had four qualifying cashes this week including two big wins on PokerStars, first in the $320 Omania High Roller (Five Card PLO, Six Max) for $8,455/198.24 and then in the $55 Bounty Builder for $6,152/208.33. He also had a fourth place finish in the PokerStars Big $55 on last Thursday for $4,022/115.37 and a ninth place finish on Sunday in the partypoker Super High Roller for $5,863/109.51. Alex ‘alexd2’ Dimitrov cashed a total off 37 times this past week, with four of them earning enough points to add to his PLB score. The first came via a third place finish in the 888poker $50,000 Volcano for $10,356/153.57 last Tuesday. He then followed that up with a third place finish in the PokerStars Big $215 on Thursday for $7,039/137.45. That same day he also took down the partypoker High Roller for $11,069/178.89. He wrapped up the week with a runner-up finish in the PokerStars Big $44 for $8,831/189.98. The top two ranked Swedish players, ‘C Darwin2’ and ‘lena900’ also held onto their respective #4 and #5 rankings. ‘C Darwin2’ had two cashes big enough to add to his PLB score and both were wins. The first came in the partypoker Heavyweight: The Uppercut which earning him $10,376/236.85 on Sunday. His next win, which was also his next cash, came two days later in the PokerStars Hot $55 for $8,536/229.35. Not to be outdone, 'Lena900' also had two qualifying cashes. The first was also a win in the partypoker High Roller on Tuesday which added $11,574 to his bankroll and 192.35 points to his PLB score. His second qualifying score came from a fourth place finish in the PokerStars $215 Bounty Builder for $6,472/132.31. While there was no change in position for any of the top five this week, spots 6 - 8 were jumbled all around thanks to a big week from Andreas ‘r4ndomr4gs’ Berggren. The Swede had two wins this past week including topping the field in the partypoker High Roller on Sunday for $15,948/281.96. He then won the PokerStars $109 No Limit Hold’em (Six Max, Hyper Turbo) for $4,552/$152.15. He then added more to his PLB score, finishing 10th in the $1,050 PokerStars Sunday Grand (NLHE) for $5,013/144.73. Those three scores allowed him to move from #8 to #6. In the process of moving up the rankings, Berggren leapfrogged Patrick 'pleno1' Leonard and Conor '1_conor_b_1' Beresford for the only movement this week. No players fell out of the top 10.

  10. [caption width="640"] Fabrizio Gonzalez sits #1 for the thirteenth straight week - but he has a new threat closing in on him[/caption] Fabrizio 'SixthSenSe19' Gonzalez continues to hold on to the #1 spot in the PocketFives Rankings but a familiar face has reappeared at #2. Sweden's 'C Darwin2' took over the #2 spot after a week that saw him record five cashes big enough to add to his PLB total, including the second biggest PLB points score of his career. 'C Darwin2' beat out 329 other players to win the $530 buy-in partypoker High Roller on Tuesday, December 27. The win was worth $31,928 and 406.2 PLB points - the most he's scored since winning a PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker (High) title in May 2016 for 572.68 points. He continued to prove the heater was real on December 27 with a win in the parytpoker Drago: Heavyweight for $3,750/122.47 and a runner-up finish in the PokerStars Hot $215 for $7,586/153.03. Two days later he took down the partypoker Uppercut: Heavyweight for $9,488/226.5. He closed out the week with a New Year's Day runner-up finish in the partypoker Drago: Heavyweight for $,4288/115.03. All told, 'C Darwin2', who last held the #1 spot in September, boosted his PLB points total by 1,023.23 points and now finds himself just 176.02 points behind Gonzalez and one spot above the previous #2, Alex 'alexd2' Dimitrov. The Uruguayan grinder, who has been #1 for 13 straight weeks, had just seven cashes this week but none were big enough to add to his lead. Dimitrov meanwhile cashed 18 times but failed to find a single score big enough to add to his total and fell to #3 for the first time since mid-October. Spots 4-9 remained unchanged but a new player emerged in the top 10 for the first time in his career. Argentinean Cristian 'Progre69' Sampaoli had three cashes good enough to add to his PLB total and move him into the #10 spot. Two of them came just minutes apart on December 27. Sampaoli finished runner-up in the PokerStars Hot $162 for $$4,813 and 121.2 PLB points. He followed that up with an 11th place finish in the PokerStars $109 Mini Super Tuesday for $1,360/94.89. Two days later he won the PokerStars $109 Hyper Turbo for $4,562 and 153.85 points. Sampaoli had been sitting just outside the top 10 at #11 since December 21. After making his way back into the top just before the end of 2016, Conor '1_conor_b_1' Beresford dropped out of the top 10 this week, falling to #11.

  11. In the history of online poker there are a select few players who have been managed to have sustained success over the course of their career. Jon ‘apestyles’ Van Fleet is a member of that elite group and on Tuesday the Canadian-based grinder found himself standing tall on top of the biggest buy-in event of the 888poker Super XL Series with almost $88,000 in earnings. Van Fleet, who was once ranked as high as #3 in the world, beat out 202 other players to win the $2,100 No Limit Hold’em High Roller event. To do so he had to make his way through an incredibly talented final table that included the current world #1 and #2-ranked players in the world Fabrizio ‘DrMiKee’ Gonzalez and ‘lena900’ as well as former #2-ranked Bernardo ‘bsdias’ Dias. In the end it was Van Fleet beating out Gonzalez heads-up to claim the the title and the $87,920 first place prize money. The Mini High Roller, with just a $215 buy-in, attracted a field of 639 players. The final two players, ‘StorValle’ and ‘carpediem14’, ended up chopping heads-up play began. After negotiations were finalized the pair continued to play with Sweden’s ’StoreValle’ coming back from a slight chip deficit to win the title. He ended up with $20,323 while British grinder ’carpiediem14’ ended up with $21,326. Canadian grinder ’kamexxx’ finished third for $12,907.00. The $109 buy-in Tuesday Challenge had a field of 713 players with ‘not_the-same' outlasting everybody to win $13,368.75. Russia’s ‘AfraidBubble’ not only made his way past the bubble but ended finishing second for $9,625.50, narrowly missing out on eighth career five-figure score and first of 2017. John ‘jfl1234’ Finnighan-Linkins, the #1-ranked player on the Isle of Man, finished third for $7,130. The final event on Tuesday’s schedule was the $160 buy-in Turbo High Roller. The 371-player field built a prize pool of $55,560. Austria’s ‘sally_os’ and Swiss pro ‘obvo4sal’ made a heads-up deal and played out to a winner with ‘sally_os’ coming out on top for a total of $9,831.04 in earnings. ‘obvo4sal’ had to settle for walking away with $8,778.37 for his second place finish. German ‘overthetop43’ finished third for $5,843.25. Leaderboard Update With two wins to his credit, Canada's 'mindcrushers' sits on top of the Super XL Series Leaderboard with 'PuntSonPunt' close on his tail. 1Mindcrushers775.70 2PuntSonPunt766.38 3Not_the_Same715.45 4trojanmouse674.01 5GoFighTer655.64 Event #28: $2,100 No Limit Hold’em High Roller Entries: 203 Players Prize pool: $406,000 chut_up - $87,920 DrMiKee - $62,930 bsdias - $47,705 glezna23 - $35,525 WorldIsOurs - $24,360 Poelsetyv - $20,3000 jba888 - $16,240 tutten7 - $12,180 LAP1215 - $8,120 Event #29: $215 No Limit Hold’em Mini High Roller Entries: 639 Prize pool: $127,800 StorValle - $20,323.00* carpediem14 - $21,326.00* kamexxx - $12,907.00 Lov3ThiSGamE - $9,712.80 wisimaki - $6,824.52 zuzina450 - $5,431.50 DedoDeGorila - $4,153.50 pojebaniec87 - $2,875.50 uarebad_lol - $1,917 Event #30: $109 No Limit Hold’em Tuesday Challenge Entries: 713 Prize pool: $71,300 not_the-same - $13,368.75 AfraidBubble - $9,625.50 John ‘jfl1234’ Finnighan-Linkins - $7,130 casinopro888 - $5,347.50 usameeta - $3,743.25 yiy - $3,030 BlacKK_DucKK - $2,317.25 _antikk_ - $1,604.25 PulledPorker - $1,005.33 Event #31: $160 No Limit Hold’em Turbo High Roller Entries: 371 Prize pool: $55,650 sally_os - $9,831.04* obvo4sal - $8,778.37 overthetop43 - $5,843.25 preyondaline - $4,452 ScratchyR - $3,116.40 Ph4N888 - $2,635.12 DePittsterje - $1,808.62 Hitchsslap $1,252.12 Sinatra48 - $923.79
  12. As the 2017 PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker draws to a close, the PocketFives Rankings seem to be swinging back to a very familiar site - Sweden. Swedish players now make up six of the top 10 spots, including the top three, with 'lena900' sitting on top for the ninth consecutive week. While SCOOP controlled most of the headlines this week, partypoker Powerfest was where 'lena900' went to work. He posted three top five finishes in partypoker Powerfest events, finishing third, second and fifth for a total of 485.43 PLB points. He now leads the rest of the field by 378.82 points. #2-ranked 'inhoo' did nearly everything he could to move into the top spot this week, posting five cashes big enough to add to his PLB score. He finished fifth in SCOOP Event #23 (High) for $37,440 and 300.75 points, 18th in SCOOP Event #31 (High) for $11,388/233.76. He posted an 11th place finish in Powerfest Event #156 for $30,061/271.21. He wrapped up the week with an 888poker XL Inferno Event #110 win for $6,418/172.77 and then an eighth-place finish in Event #126 for $24,300/258.46. A Powerfest win, plus a PokerStars Hot $215 win and another cash helped 'Ariados' stay at #3. He started the week by taking down the Hot $215 fro $12,321 and 257.68 points. Three days later he beat out 518 other players to win the $530 buy-in Powerfest High Roller for $48,371 and 509.41 points and then finished 18th in Powerfest #158 for $5,353/112. Two former #1-ranked players make the next two spots. Uruguay's Fabrizio 'SixthSenSe19' Gonzalez, the only non-Swede in the top five, sits at #4 while 'C Darwin2' is #5. The first bit of movement in the top 10 came from Patrick 'pleno1' Leonard. The top-ranked British player won SCOOP Event #20 (Medium) for $18,567 and 320 points. He then followed that up with a fourth-place finish in Event #29 (High) for $59,175/386.64. Leonard then posted three Powerfest scores, including two fourth place and one sixth place finish, for $71,981 in earnings and 721.62 points. Those five results propelled him from #10 to #8. Johannes 'Greenstone25' Korsar rounded out the Swedish contingent in the top 10, moving from #11 to #10 thanks to a 11th-place finish in Powerfest Event #149 for 411,141/211.62 and a 14th-place finish in SCOOP Event #41 (High) for $19,425/233.59.

  13. Just over a week out from one of the busiest periods on the online poker MTT schedule and the PocketFives Rankings continue to feature Sweden’s ‘lena900’ sitting quite comfortable at #1 with the usual suspects staring up at him. Two big runner-up finishes this past week kept ‘lena900’ on top. He finished second to ‘KumariOy’ in the PokerStars Sunday Grand Pot Limit Omaha for $23,450 and 259.75 PLB points. He topped that score four days later, beating out everybody but ‘psyhoagromor’ in the PokerStars Thursday Thrill for $31,292/321.19. He had 44 other cashes on the week, but none were strong enough to add to his points total. The two players directly behind ‘lena900’ both failed to post any scores big enough this past week to help them in their pursuit. Fabrizio ‘SixthSenSe19’ Gonzalez continued his hold on #2 while ‘C Darwin2’ sits third. While they may be focused on tracking down ‘lena900’, they need to be looking over their shoulders. Sweden’s ‘inhoo’ stayed in the #4 spot this week but made up ground on those above him. Finishing his week by winning the partypoker High Roller on Tuesday for $17,372 and 316.23 moved ‘inhoo’ to within 173.23 points of the #3 spot, one week after after trailing ‘C Darwin2’ by almost 460 points. After cracking the top 10 last week, German grinder ‘girafganger7’ held on to the #5 spot thanks to a pair of scores on partypoker. Last Saturday he won the $530 buy-in High Roller for $6,596/150 and then followed that up on Sunday with a runner-up finish in the $290 buy-in Heavyweight $30K Guaranteed for $5,425/116.16. He sits just 13.91 points ahead of former #1 Nicolas ‘PokerKaiser’ Fierro. There were no changes at all to any of the top 8 players. Sweden's 'Ariados' stayed at #7 and English pro Conor '1_conor_b_1' Beresford did not move from #8. The only changes this week came from Andreas ‘r4ndomr4gs’ Berggren who moved from #11 to #9 and German ‘pappadogg’ dropping from #9 to #10. Patrick ‘pleno1’ Leonard dropped out of the top 10.

  14. Had #1-ranked 'lena900' taken the last week off from grinding, he likely would have remained in the top spot of the PocketFives Rankings. Instead, the Swede had a week to remember, racking up over 1,000 PLB points and breaking the 10,000 point barrier to put himself well ahead of the rest of the field. The week started with a bang for 'lena900' with a win in the PokerStars Hot $215 on March 31 for $8,487 and 208.33 points. He then took down the $530 buy-in partypoker High Roller for $9,260 and 174.64 points. Those two cashes though were just setting the table for a big Sunday. He started things off by winning the Hot $162 for $7,235 and 193.65 and then made it through 2,306 other players before finishing runner-up in the PokerStars Sunday Warm-Up for $48,796 and 448.24 points - his fifth biggest take ever. When the week was done, 'lena900' added 1,024.86 points to his total and ended up with 10,011.11 points and a lead of 1,384.77 points over his nearest competitor. Despite cashing 30 times this past week, #2-ranked 'C Darwin2' was unable to find a single run deep enough to add to his points total. While he's well behind 'lena900', there are just 44.56 points separating him and Fabrizio 'SixthSenSe19' Gonzalez. For his part, Gonzalez put in very little volume this past week and failed to record a single cash big enough to help his points total. Two other Swedes, 'inhoo' and 'Ariados', maintained their #4 and #5 respective spots from last week to round out the top five, but the biggest mover of the week was British proConor '1_conor_b_1' Beresford. Beresford jumped from #20 to #6 thanks to a runner-up finish in the $530 buy-in partypoker High Roller on Sunday. That result added $22,876 to his bankroll and 246.42 points to his total. He now sits just four spots off of his career of #2 that he last reached in 2016. The rest of the top 10 remained largely unchanged with Nicolas 'PokerKaiser' Fierro and Andreas 'r4ndom4gs' Berggren swapping the #6 and #7 spots while 'pappadogg' and Andras 'probirs' Nemeth moved down one spot each. Canadian Joel 'jbrown8777' Brown fell out of the top 10.

  15. After wrestling away the #1 spot in the PocketFives Rankings from Fabrizio ‘SixthSenSe19’ Gonzalez two weeks ago, ‘lena900’ doesn’t appear ready to give it up and now Gonzalez has another Swedish nemesis in his way. ‘Lena900’ cashed 40 times this past week, but only one of them was good enough to add to his already PLB points total. The Swedish pro finished third in the 888poker Sunday Challenge for $8,528 and 149.93 points. Despite only having one cash count, ‘lena900’ now holds an 892.63 point lead over his closest competition. While ‘lena900’ only got the one cash, ‘C Darwin2’ managed to move up one spot in the rankings despite not recording a single cash big enough to add to his points total. The former #1-ranked player had eight smaller cashes, but thanks to some of Gonzalez’s older scores dropping off, snuck past the Uruguayan poker pro by just 26.56 points. Gonzalez had just one cash this past week - a third place finish in the ACR Sunday Special PLO event - but it wasn’t worth enough to impact his score and help him maintain his #2-ranking. Gonzalez stands out in the rankings for another reason. He’s the lone non-Swede in the top six. Three other Swedish pros take up spots 4-6. Moving from #5 to #4, ‘inhoo’ had three big scores this week which helped him move up to just one spot shy of his career best. Last Wednesday ‘inhoo’ finished fourth in the partypoker Heavyweight Uppercut for $4,382 and 108.91 and then followed that up immediately with a win in the partypoker High Roller for $10,480/223.61. His big score though came on Sunday when he finished second in the PokerStars Sunday Grand PLO for $21,588/244.2. Rounding out the Swedish contingent is ‘Ariados’ at #5 and Andreas ‘r4ndomr4gs’ Berggren at #6. Former #1-ranked Nicolas 'PokerKaiser' Fierro held on to the #7 ranking after posting three big scores. He took down the PokerStars Big $109 for $9,820/235.58, then finished 12th in the PokerStars Super Tuesday for $4,743/136.59 and then wrapped up the week with a win in the PokerStars $22 Bubble Rush for $2,010/109.54. Germany’s ‘pappadogg’ moved from #9 to #8 and Andras 'probirs' Nemeth moved from #10 to #9. Top-ranked Canadian Joel ‘jbrown8777’ Brown moved back into the top ten after posting four solid cashes. Last Tuesday, Brown finished fourth in the partypoker High Roller for $5,787/110.97 and then 14th in the PokerStars Super Tuesday for $3,952/124.52. The next day he topped the 62-player field in the partypoker Six Max High Roller for $11,056/176.07 and then ended the week with an eighth-place finish in the partypoker Super High Roller for $4,772/110.29. Former #1-ranked Patrick ‘pleno1’ Leonard dropped from #8 to #11 and was the only player to fall out of the top 10.

  16. [caption width="640"] Fabrizio 'SixthSenSe19' Gonzalez didn't have a single cash big enough to earn any PLB points this past week, but he still stayed #1.[/caption] After three straight weeks with a change at the number one spot in the PocketFives Rankings there's finally some stability as Fabrizio 'SixthSenSe19' Gonzalez held on to the #1 spot for the second straight week. Making Gonzalez's accomplishment even more impressive, he stayed on top even though he had a week with no cashes big enough to add to his PLB score. Gonzalez cashed just four time this week and failed to make any final tables. He did fall below the 10,000 point barrier though and now sits just 193.63 points ahead of his nearest competitor. Sweden's 'lena900' maintains his hold on the #2 spot and made up some ground on Gonzalez in the process. 'Lena900' won the partypoker High Roller on February 14 for $13,875 and 235.58 points, the PokerStars $109 Saturday Special for $4,370/185.14 and then runner-up in the partypoker Six Max High Roller on Sunday for $10,123/164.94. All told the Swedish grinder added 585.66 points to his total. Another Swede, 'C Darwin2', held on to the #3 spot thanks to a runner-up finish in the 888 Quarterback for $7,967/148.26 and then won the PokerStars Hot $55 on Thursday for $8,221/223.94. He trails Gonzalez by 580.33 but has a 1,865.1 point lead on the rest of the field. Alex 'alexd2' Dimitrov was the last player in the top 10 to hold onto their spot. Dimitrov, who has been as high as #2 during his career, stayed at #4. Anybody who has followed the rankings for the past two years won't be surprised to learn that two Swedes made big moves this week. 'inhoo' moved from #8 to #5 and he's now within striking distance of his all-time high of #3. Right behind him was Andreas 'r4ndomr4gs' Berggren who went from #9 to #6. Former #1-ranked Nicolas 'PokerKaiser' Fierro dropped from #5 to #7 and German 'pappadogg' went from #9 to #6. The only new name in the top ten this is Russian Alexandr 'Blackk' Trofimov. He began his week by finishing runner-up in the PokerStars Super Tuesday for $47,567 and 392.54. He then posted another runner-up finish, this time in a PokerStars $109 for $2,968/94.83 before finally breaking through and posting a win in the PokerStars $109 on February 16 for $4,582/154.18. Those three cashes added 641.55 points to his total and moved him up from #14 to #10. The only player to drop out of the top 10 was Sweden's 'Ariados' who went from #10 to #11.

  17. [caption width="640"] Fabrizio 'SixthSenSe19' Gonzalez held off a charging 'lena900' to stay ranked #1 in the world this week[/caption] Fabrizio 'SixthSenSe19' Gonzalez regained the #1 spot in the PocketFives Rankings last week and then went about making sure he did everything in his power to stay there this week. Gonzalez had two scores big enough this week to add to his PLB total, including the second biggest PLB Points grab of his career. Gonzalez finished second in the 888poker Super XL Series High Roller for $62,930 and 420.38 points, second only to the 683.22 he earned for finishing runner-up in the PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker PLO High Roller last September. On Sunday, Gonzalez finished 12th in the PokerStars Turbo Championship of Online Poker High Roller for $17,534 and 287.09 points. Those two scores were enough to hold off the competition for at least another week and leaves Gonzalez 280.05 points ahead of #2-ranked 'lena900'. When 'lena900' woke up Wednesday morning, he may have expected to see his name at number one. After posting an astonishing five qualifying cashes this past week, the former #1-ranked player might have thought he had locked up top spot for a third time. Last Wednesday he finished eighth in the 888poker Super XL High Roller for $12,180 and 182.98 points and then won the partypoker Powerfest High Roller for $15,640/223.61 points. He then won a TCOOP event for $27,440/438.77, a PokerStars Big $109 for $12,166/267.58 and rounded out the week with a runner-up finish in the Winamax High Roller for $9,715/162.65. In total he added 1,275.59 points to his PLB total, but couldn't close the gap as a number of early 2016 cashes fell off of his total. The rest of the top five remains unchanged with 'C Darwin2' in third, Alex 'alexd2' Dimitrov in fourth and Anton 'AnteSvante' Wigg in fifth.Andreas 'r4ndomr4gs' Berggren andAndras 'probirs' Nemeth swapped spots with Berggren dropping to seventh and Nemeth moving up to sixth. The single biggest mover of the week though is Czech resident 'pappadogg', who rose all the way up from 25th to eighth after an incredible week that saw him add 1,325.39 to his total as well as over $100,000 in winnings. 'pappadogg' started the week off by finishing on top of the partypoker PowerFest High Roller for $55,485 and 547.73 PLB points - his highest single score ever. He then finished runner-up in a PokerStars Hot $109 for $8,976/178.01, 11th in the 888poker Super XL Series High Roller for $7,105/151.16, first in the PokerStars.fr Sunday Six Max for $8,276/206.81 and then runner-up in the PokerStars Hot $215 for $16,897/241.69. His previous high was #23. Conor '1_conor_b_1' Beresford dropped from #8 to #9 while Patrick 'pleno1' Leonard moved up to #10 from #12. Dropping out of the top 10 were Nicolas 'PokerKaiser' Fierro and Roman 'romeopro' Romanovsky.

  18. In a day filled with big tournaments and big winners, the big headline coming out of the 888poker Super XL series on Sunday was 'mindcrushers' crushing another Super XL event and became the first two-time winner of the series. Mindcrushers topped the Event #21 $75 Super Turbo Tune Up Event just days removed from a win in Event #1. In addition to another $4,096 in prize money and the title, mindcrusher now moves to second in theleaderboard contest behind 'PuntSonPunt'. PuntSonPunt followed up two final tables on Saturday with a third appearance Sunday, taking fifth place in the same event mindcrushers won. As a result, PuntSonPunt remains the player to beat in the contest with 671 points. Keep an eye on 'eze88888' too, as they final tabled both Event #13 and Event #18 over the course of the day's action. Once again, all tournaments met the guarantee. The biggest prizepool of the day belonged to the $160 buy-in “Tune Up” event, which guaranteed $250,000 and ended up with a $316,200 prizepool. The heads-up battle between 'ForSjovt' and 'SalsaFiesta' was a lengthy one with numerous lead changes. In the end, ForSjovt prevailed to take home almost $54,000. The $600 buy-in “Whale” event also generated a substantial prizepool of $221,480. The recurring Sunday tournament on the 888poker schedule got a bump in the guarantee for the Super XL series. ‘Wes.c.addle’ captured the title after winning the Whale last April for over $41,000. He bested that score with a $42,502.01 payday this time around, besting a final table that included Fabrizio ‘DrMiKee’ Gonzalez, who finished in fourth place. The finish keeps him in the leaderboard contest too, where he currently sits in fourth place. Gonzalez was not the only notable Pocket Fiver to make a final table Sunday. Matthew 'theginger45' Hunt final tabled Event #12, taking fifth place. That final table was the only one that ended with any sort of deal. The final two players agreed to a chop that resulted in 'Jefffryyy' earning the win, but 'L-Scola' finishing second for a little more money. Other winners for the day include 'ADRMI_ATM' (Event #13), 'VLADIMIRIKOC' (Event #15), 'scratchero' (Event #16), 'gonzAAr' (Event #18), '_zufurduo_' (Event #19), and 'Bak0s' (Event #20). Monday brings six more tournaments on the Super XL schedule and a little change of pace on the games front. The action kicks off with a 7:00 p.m. $109 Omaha tournament and a $12 Mini Omaha Tournament. At 7:35 p.m. GMT two $22 no-limit hold’em events start concurrently. Then, at 8 p.m. GMT, the $15,000 guaranteed $55 buy-in Snap event and $5,000 guaranteed $5 buy-in Mini Snap start, culminating a very busy hour for 888poker Super XL players.

  19. [caption width="640"] Fabrizio 'SixthSenSe19' Gonzalez continues to fight it out with 'lena900' atop the PocketFives Rankings (PokerStars photo/Neil Stoddart)[/caption] For the fourth time in five weeks there has been a change at the top of the PocketFives Rankings but while change seems to be the constant at the top, it's just two players going toe-to-toe. Fabrizio 'SixthSenSe19' Gonzalez pushed past 'lena900' to retake the #1 spot thanks to a runner-up finish in the partypoker Powerfest Super High Roller that resulted in the second largest score, both in terms of cash and PLB points, in his career. Gonzalez outlasted 209 of the 210 other players in the $5,200 buy-in event to win $163,525 and 677.65. The only time he's earned more in either category came in September 2016 when he finished runner up in the PokerStars World Championship Pot Limit Omaha High Roller for $355,731 and 683.22 points. Gonzalez also had a win in the partypoker $530 High Roller event on February 7 to win $11,049 and 201.25 points. Those two scores pushed Gonzalez's PLB points total over 10,000 for the first time ever. While Gonzalez had a week that saw him add 878.9 points to his total, Sweden's 'lena900' added 305 points to his total from two wins. He started the week off with a win in the partypoker Six Max Turbo High Roller for $8,800 and 148.32 points. On Sunday he took down the PokerStars Six Max €20,000 guaranteed for $6,383 and 156.68 points. He now trails Gonzalez by 535.55 points. As has been the case for most of the past two years, Swedish players continue to dominate the top 10 spots. Right behind 'lena900' at #3 is fellow Swede 'C Darwin2' who had a week that included his three largest PLB scores ever. His week started with a third place finish in the Powerfest Super High Roller for $123,963 and 531.32 points. He followed that up with a win in the pokerStars Thursday Thrill for $45,206/504.98 and then took down the PokerStars Sunday Warm-Up for $56,056 and 609.92 points. He trails 'lena900' by just 196.23 points and is 731.78 points out of first. While the top three players all remain relatively close in terms of points, the gap between that group and the rest of the top 10 continues to grow. Alex 'alexd2' Dimitrov held on to the #4 spot with only one qualifying cash. Dimitrov won the Black Chip Poker BIG10 for $3,649 and 137.68 points and now finds himself 1,855.74 points behind 'C Darwin2' and 2,587.52 points behind Gonzalez. While the names in the top four spots didn't change, there was considerable movement in the rest of the group. Nicolas 'PokerKaiser' Fierro moved from #9 to #5 thanks to a win in the Big €100 on PokerStars.fr and a runner-up finish in the PokerStars Sunday Warm-Up that garnered him 535.19 points. 'Pappadogg' continued his ascension, moving from #7 to #6, Andras 'probirs' Nemeth dropped from #5 to #7, 'inhoo' moved from #10 to #8 and Andreas 'r4ndomr4gs' Berggren fell from #6 to #10. The biggest jump of the week though belonged to the fifth and final Swede in the top 10. 'Ariados' put together four qualifying cashes this past week, including the largest PLB score of his career. 'Ariados' won the partypoker Powerfest Super High Roller for $226,825 and a whopping 1,027.13 points. He also won a PokerStars.fr €100 Nightly for 147.62 points, finished 16th in the PokerStars Sunday Warm-Up for 115.56 points and then topped the Winamax High Roller on Sunday for $16,701 and 261.27 points. Dropping out of the top 10 this week was Anton 'AnteSvante' Wigg, who fell all the way to #17.

  20. [caption width="640"] Fabrizio 'SixthSenSe19' Gonzalez is back on top of the PocketFives Rankings after spending one week at #2 (SHRPO photo)[/caption] It would seem that Fabrizio ‘SixthSenSe19’ Gonzalez didn’t take too kindly to falling from the #1 spot in the PocketFives Rankings last week. The Uruguayan rebounded this past week to reclaim the top spot from Sweden’s ‘lena900’. Gonzalez had just two cashes big enough to add to his PLB points total, but they were good enough to get him back to the top of the rankings. Gonzalez beat out 157-player field in the PokerStars Omania High Roller Five Card Pot Limit Omaha for $9,540.07 and 217.03 PLB points. Four days later he finished ninth in Event #31 of the PokerStars Turbo Championship of Online Poker. The $215 Six Max No Limit Hold’em event had 1,608 and Gonzalez earned $3,900 and 153.54 points for his finish. ‘lena900’ also had two qualifying cashes. The first was a win in the parypoker Drago: Heavyweight last Thursday. He earned $3,651 and 134.91 points. He followed that up with a runner-up finish in TCOOP Event #22, a $215 Six Max No Limit Omaha Hi-Lo tournament, for $7,283 and 165.47 points. Earning just 300.38 points in the week, combined with some of his older scores falling off of his total, gave Gonzalez the opportunity to swap spots with him. ‘lena900’ is now 351.95 points out of top spot. Another Swedish phenom, ‘C Darwin2’, held on to the #3 spot this week and Alex ‘alexd2’ Dimitrov maintained his #4 ranking. The next player to move up was Anton ‘AnteSavante’ Wigg. The bulk of Wigg’s points this week came from a pair of wins on Saturday. He won the 888poker $20,000 Crocodile for $4,967/151.99 and immediately grabbed another $5,116/149 after winning a $215 buy-in PokerStars Turbo NLHE event. He wrapped up the week with a fifth place finish in the $1,050 Sunday Grand PLO for $10,922/164.32. Andreas 'r4ndomr4gs' Berggren moved from #8 to #6 thanks to a huge win on Winamax. The Swedish pro, who ranked #1 in 2014, beat out 3,166 other players to win the Winamax.fr W Series Event 100 for $17,198 and 439 PLB points - his highest PLB score ever. He also won the PokerStars.fr Nightly on January 18 for $4,431/151.54. His last big score of the week came on Saturday when he won the Winamax High Roller for $5,753/133.86. Roman ‘romeopro’ Romanovsky cracked the top 10 this week after recording four cashes big enough to impact his score. All told he earned 626.95 PLB points from those four events, highlighted by a win in the partypoker $530 High Roller for $13,375 and 231.30 points.

  21. [caption width="640"] Despite spending all week at the PokerStars Championship Bahamas, Fabrizio ‘SixthSenSe19’ Gonzalez held on to the top spot.(PokerStars photo)[/caption] It’s been 14 weeks since somebody other than Fabrizio ‘SixthSenSe19’ Gonzalez has held down the #1 spot in the PocketFives Worldwide Rankings. Gonzalez held on to the top spot this week despite the fact he played a full schedule at the PokerStars Championship Bahamas. Despite just five cashes - and none big enough to add to his PLB score - Gonzalez still held off challenges from ‘C Darwin2’ and Alex ‘alexd2’ Dimitrov. ‘C Darwin2’, one of four Swedish players in the top 10, started the week off in the right way with a win in the PokerStars Hot $162 for $7,062 and 191.31 points. Despite 14 more cashes during the week however, he was unable to find another result good enough to add to his total. Dimitrov also had a slow week - one of his slowest in recent memory. The Bulgarian grinder, known for playing a higher volume than others in the top 10, cashed just seven times and not a single one helped him close the gap on ‘C Darwin2’ or Gonzalez. The next Swede in the rankings, ‘lena900’, had 34 in-the-money finishes but only one, where he took fourth place in the partypoker High Roller on January 4, was good enough to add to his points total. He walked away from that event with $8,147 in cash and 141.72 points. The top five is rounded out by the #1 player out of Brazil, Joao Mathias 'joaomathias' Baumgarten. The former #1-ranked Baumgarten had 35 cashes this past week and just like other above him in the standings, only one was good enough to count toward his total. Finishing sixth in the partypoker Heavyweight on January 8, Baumgarten won $6,875 and added 120.66 points. The only player to move into the top 10 this week was Conor '1_conor_b_1' Beresford. The UK-grinder moved up to #10 from #11, swapping places with Cristian ‘progre69’ Sampaoli, thanks to a win in the PokerStars $55 Six Max Progressive KO event on January 9. He added $2,066 to his bankroll but also an additional 107.59 PLB points to his total. He’s now 53.46 ahead of Sampaoli.

  22. [caption width="639"] Cristian 'Progre69' Sampaoli finished second among online tournament players in the world in December. (Codigo Poker photo)[/caption] December featured another exciting race to the top on the PocketFives monthly PLB leaderboard. World #1-ranked player Fabrizio ‘SixthSenSe19’ Gonzalez held the crown in November but ceded it to ‘C Darwin2’, who racked up over 2,600 points among his 20 highest scores. It was an astounding month for ‘C Darwin2’ as he notched five victories along with five additional top-three finishes. ‘C Darwin2’ did the larger portion of his damage in High Roller and Super High Roller events on partypoker. On December 11, ‘C Darwin2’ won the $2,600 buy in $100,000 guaranteed Super High Roller, beating a field of 46 to collect the $42,500 first place prize. A few weeks later, ‘C Darwin2’ was victorious in the $530 buy in $100,000 guaranteed High Roller as he vanquished the 330 entrants standing between him and first place. ‘C Darwin2’ took home $31,900 for his result. Some of the other notable results from ‘C Darwin2’ include an 11th place finish in a field of 1,951 in the PokerStars $300,000 guaranteed Sunday Warm-Up, a bronze medal in the partypoker $50,000 guaranteed Six Max Turbo High Roller, and a win in the partypoker $20,000 guaranteed Six Max Turbo High Roller, which earned him $8,400. Finishing behind ‘C Darwin2’ in the rankings by less than 60 points is Cristian ‘Progre69’ Sampaoli. It was a big month for Sampaoli as he earned a Triple Crown over the course of three days. The largest of the Triple Crown victories for Sampaoli came in the PokerStars $350,000 guaranteed Super Tuesday. The $71,000 first place prize is the second largest online cash of Sampaoli’s career. Outside of ‘C Darwin2’, who is currently the #2-ranked player in the world, the highest finishing player in the PLB rankings is ‘lena900’, who took fifth place and is #4 overall. ‘lena900’ continued a streak of consistent success after taking sixth place in the November PLB poll. Finishing in third and fourth place, respectively, is Alexandr ‘Blackk’ Trofimov and Gediminas ‘Gedis92’ Uselis. It was a busy month for both players, as they combined to win 19 tournaments between them.

  23. For the first time in the post-Black Friday history of the PocketFives Rankings, the top five spots all belong to players from one country. Anybody who has been paying attention to the rankings for the last few years won’t be surprised at all to learn that it’s the Swedes who now go #1 through #5. Despite not posting a single cash since June 8, ‘lena900’ held on to the #1 ranking but now has a real threat chasing him. ‘C Darwin2’ moved up from #3 to #2 this past week after taking down the PokerStars Big $109 on June 22. The win was worth $9,608 and 233.02 PLB points. ‘C Darwin2’ has been #1 five times in his career, most recently in September 2016. Falling from #2 to #3 this week, ‘inhoo’ has not had a qualifying cash late May as he is part of the Swedish contingent in Las Vegas for the World Series of Poker. ‘Ariados’ maintained his #4 ranking while also being unable to play tournaments on ROW sites while in Las Vegas. While three of the top four are in Las Vegas, Andreas 'r4ndomr4gs' Berggren moved up to #5 by piling up points while the others are away. Berggren won the PokerStars Bounty Builder for $16,003 and 355.18 points on June 18 and then closed out the week with a win in the PokerStars Hot $215 for $8,721/212.60. Those two cashes allowed Berggren to move up three spots. The highest ranking non-Swede is former #1-ranked Nicolas ‘PokerKaiser’ Fierro at #6. The Chilean grinder put in a full schedule this past week but was unable to find a score big enough to add to his PLB score. Fabrizio ‘SixthSenSe19’ Gonzalez, the last non-Swede to hold down the #1 spot, hasn’t cashed in an online event since June 12 but stayed in the top 10, finishing the week at #7, down two spots from the previous week. Andres ‘probirs’ Nemeth went from #7 to #8. Another Swede and former #1-ranked player moved back into the top 10 this week. ‘Sheater’ went from #12 to #9. Rounding out the top 10 was Conor ‘1_conor_b_1’ Beresford. As if having six of the top 10 isn’t dominating enough, two Swedish players sit just outside of the top of the list.

  24. Don’t look now, but the PocketFives Rankings could be in for a shake-up over the next five or six weeks as a number of the top-ranked players have made their way to Las Vegas for the 2017 World Series of Poker, giving those not making the trip an opportunity to catch up or even pass those above them. The top 10 rankings saw very little change this week, with only one player moving back into the top 10 and two players switching spots. Both ‘lena900’ and ‘inhoo’ are apparently already in Las Vegas chasing down bracelets and big scores. The two Swedes maintained their respective #1 and #2 ranking this week despite the fact that neither of them recorded a single cash this past week. This marks the third straight week that ‘lena900’ has held the top spot. While those two Swedes have had to put away their mouse, #3-ranked ‘C Darwin2’ is still putting up scores. One of his 19 cashes over the last seven days was good enough to add to his PLB score. Topping a 68-player field in the PokerStars Omania High Roller on June 15 earned $5,789.59 and 142.83 PLB points. He now sits 172.73 points behind ‘inhoo’. The first sign of movement in the top 10 came at #6, where Nicolas ‘PokerKaiser’ Fierro and Andres ‘probirs’ Nemeth swapped spots. Fierro moved up to #6 after finishing first in a partypoker High Roller on June 9. He walked away with $14,311 and 255.93 points. Nemeth meanwhile only had three cashes total, none good enough to earn him any points. Despite being in Las Vegas for the WSOP, Patrick ‘pleno1’ Leonard moved up from #12 to #9 as some of the older scores for players around him dropped off.

  25. The PocketFives Rankings have long been a playground for Swedish players. Just last week 'lena900' moved back into the top spot for the fifth time in his career and now there's six Swedes in the top 10 with another two knocking on the door. Sitting on top certainly seems to serve 'lena900' well. On June 6 he took down a partypoker High Roller for $20,422 and 322.49 PLB points. While it was a big score, it was the only one big enough to add to his total this week. He now sits 353.1 points ahead of the rest of the field - including the the three Swedes directly behind him. Staying at #2 despite no PLB points earned this past week was 'inhoo'. There's just 78.35 points between him and 'C Darwin2' who moved from #4 to #3 this week. The former #1-ranked player had four big scores this week inlcuding a win in the partypoker Heavyweight Title Fight Warm Up for $20,427/358.33 and a partypoker High Roller win for $13,059/237.7. He also finished seventh in the partypoker Heavyweight Title Fight for $4,700/155.56 and runner-up in the 888poker Volcano for $10,085/160.69. 'Ariados' fell from #3 to #4 despite a runner-up finish in the Winamax Highroller for $13,663/171.88 and a fourth-place finish in the partypoker High Roller on June 6 for $8,043 adn 140.37. There was no change in spots 5 - 9 but Johannes 'Greenstone25' Korsar jumped from #14 to #10 thanks to his win in the partypoker Super High Roller for $52,437 and 421.31 points. Korsar is the sixth Swede in the top 10 but there may be more soon. 'Sheater' is sitting at #11, just 14.78 points behind Korsar while 'DeathbyQuads' is at #15.
