  1. Just before the dog days of summer set in, Ukraine's serhiy1989won the Full Tilt Poker $250,000 Guaranteeafter a heads-up chop with fellow PocketFiver joaomathias. The deal was worth $44,000 and PocketFivers ended up sweeping the final table for over $163,000 total. "I'm feeling quite good," serhiy1989 told PocketFives following his big score. "The final table was of medium strength, but complicating my life was that I was sitting next to a very strong regular in UhhMee and next to him was a very strong Brazilian. The table was working for me, but I had no luck with the seating arrangements." "I didn't think I had an advantage over my opponent," serhiy1989 responded when asked why he chose to chop at the end of the six-figure guarantee tournament. The score was the largest we've tracked for serhiy1989, who took second in a PokerStars WCOOP Second Chance No Limit Hold'em Six-Max Knockout in 2013 for $31,000. Here's how the final table of the Full Tilt $250,000 Guarantee cashed out: 1. jokerWSCOP $44,857.56 (serhiy1989) 2. joaoMATHIAS $38,442.44 (joaomathias) 3. UhhMee $23,750.00 (UhhMee) 4. ur_jst_ignorant $17,750.00 (tilt21sted) 5. thegr8str8 $13,250.00 (shanedb1983) 6. tangentagent $9,750.00 (GreenAsFelt) 7. floppin_ell $7,250.00 (floppinhel) 8. Austrian_Master $5,250.00 (Ringelsdorf) 9. achen $3,750.00 (achen) Besides continuing to build his poker bankroll, serhiy1989 said that part of the money will go toward building a house. Right now, his family is living with parents while the house is under construction, so perhaps some newfound cash will help speed up that process. He is the top-ranked player in Zakarpattia Oblastin southwest Ukraine and #8 overall in the country. Ukraine is home to 702 registered PocketFivers, 503 of whom have PLB scores. The Ukraine poker community has combined for $51.5 million in winnings all-time, about 10% of which has come in the last three months. serhiy1989 got into the game like many in the poker industry did, via home games while in school. He has certainly come a long way and is up to $613,000 in online MTT scores from 1,385 in the money finishes, an average of $440 each. He is currently #363 worldwide in the PocketFives Poker Rankings, his all-time high.

  3. A five-week run at the top of the PocketFives Poker Rankingsby Yuri Martinscame to an end on Wednesday, as joaomathias(pictured) claimed the #1 spot for the first time ever. The Brazilian finished third in the PokerStars Big $109 in recent days for $12,000. In January alone, he has 68 tracked online MTT scores for $146,000 combined, and we're only 21 days in. Interestingly, joaomathias and Yuri Martins are both Brazilian. joaomathias has a razor-thin 65-PLB Point edge over Yuri Martins in the Rankings, so we could see another changing of the guard next week. Yuri Martins' five-week reign at the top was the longest by any PocketFiver in four months. Hungary's Ssick_onemoved up three spots to #7 in the world, his all-time high, thanks to a victory in the 888 PokerTurbo Mega Deep for $20,000 and 279 PLB Points. He's had a productive January and also won the Full TiltTurbo Multi-Hundo for $15,000. You can find him playing as imyurfriendon many of the world's largest online poker sites like Winamax and 888. After stumbling a bit in recent weeks, Finland's European was back in the top 10, jumping five spots to #8. He has three tracked wins already this month, including a $22,000 hit for taking down the Big $109 on January 17. The same day that the Rankings were updated on January 21, he hit $2 million in career online tournament winnings. There are three Swedes in the top 15 of the Rankings; moving up the most of any of them was Smeckten(pictured), who landed at #14, up seven spots. He's one day removed from a win in the PokerStars $215 NLHE Turbo for $10,000 and finished second in the PartyPoker $100,000 Guaranteed over the weekend for $17,000. Smeckten is just a couple thousand dollars shy of $3 million in online tournament winnings. Finally this week, we wanted to single out Norway's prebzzz, who entered his screen names on January 17 and debuted at #26 worldwide, his highest position ever. On January 13, prebzzz final tabled the PokerStars Super Tuesday and cashed for $55,000, his largest tournament score to date. Here are the top 10 players worldwide in the Rankings this week, along with the PLB score for each: 1. joaomathias- 7,381 points 2. Yuri Martins - 7,316 points 3. PokerKaiser - 7,181 points 4. Big Huni - 7,155 points 5. p0cket00 - 7,152 points 6. pleno1 - 6,915 points 7. Ssick_one - 6,751 points 8. European- 6,660 points 9. r4ndomr4gs - 6,648 points 10.

  4. After reentering his screen names last week, Norway's prebzzzjumped nearly to the top of the PocketFives Online Poker Rankings, landing at #6. This is the highest he has ever been in the Rankings and, not surprisingly, he's the top-ranked PocketFiver in Norway. prebzzz has made mincemeat of the Super Tuesday this year, final tabling it twice for almost $130,000 total. He finished second in the tournament in mid-June for $73,000 and took fourth in January for $55,000. In between, prebzzz won the Big $109 and final tabled the Sunday Warm-Up for $46,000 and $42,000, respectively. On top of the Rankings ever since May 6 is Nico PokerKaiser Fierro (pictured above), who continues to dominate the leaderboard. He is entering his ninth week on top of the Rankings and has recorded four wins since mid-June. Fierro has 7,553 PLB Points, 400 more than the second place player. This is the longest anyone has been at the top of the Rankings since Cal cal42688 Anderson's 22 weeks in 2012 and 2013. Joao joaomathiasMathias (pictured) moved up from #10 to #5 thanks in part to a second place finish in the PartyPoker Sunday Major for $13,000 over the weekend. He has $6.2 million in career online tournament winnings and has been a member of PocketFives since 2008. A former #1 player on PocketFives, Legenden moved up four spots to reenter the top 10 at #9. He was last ranked #1 on our site two years ago and now owns $4.1 million in career scores. Two of his four largest cashes all-time have come in 2015: a victory in the Super Tuesday for $102,000 and a SCOOP final table for $79,000. There wasn't a ton of movement in the Rankings this week, but one of the biggest jumps went to Russia's Blackk, who moved up 45 spots to land at #30. He has three tracked wins in the last 10 days, bringing his career total to 186. Blackk is $115,000 shy of hitting $5 million in online MTT winnings. Here are the top 10 players in the Rankings this week along with the PLB score for each: 1. PokerKaiser- 7,553 points 2. hellohellohello - 7,159 points 3. AnteSvante - 6,897 points 4. bedias - 6,723 points 5. joaomathias- 6,632 points 6. prebzzz- 6,614 points 7. Tiny_molester - 6,584 points 8. Sheater - 6,565 points 9. Legenden- 6,523 points 10. lasagnaaammm - 6,509 points Congrats to all of our ranked players! Want the latest poker headlines and interviews?

  5. [caption width="640"] Hungary's Marton 'noirduck' Czuczor won the March Leaderboard (photo credit Danny Maxwell)[/caption] Every point has been tallied, every chip has been counted and in one of the closest finishes in Monthly PocketFives Leaderboard history, Marton 'noirduck' Czuczor wound up on top after piling up 2,906 PLB Points during the month. Czuczor logged five wins last month, starting with the Full Tilt Tyrannosaurus Rex on March 4 for $1,100. He won both the PokerStars Hot $7.50 and partypoker Heavyweight Clubber the same day for another $6,000 total. Two weeks later, the Hungarian hit it big in the PokerStars Saturday Super Knockout, taking the title for $25,000 and almost 400 PLB Points. On March 20, Czuczor came in third in the PokerStars Sunday $109 Rebuy for $24,000 and was second in the 888 Whale one day later, adding another $34,000 to his coffers. He closed out the 31-day month with a bang, winning the partypoker High Roller for $35,000. The latter two were his seventh and sixth largest career scores, respectively. After his highly successful month, Czuczor is up to 33 tracked career wins and almost $2.5 million in earnings. He became just the second Hungarian to win a MPLB, the first coming eight years ago when Peter 'breeth' Turmezey won it. "I know 'noirduck' personally," Turmezey said. "He is a good guy and I was very happy for his success. There are lot of players in Hungary compared to the size of the country. Therefore, most people know somebody who knows somebody who makes their living from poker." Turmezey actually took fourth in the Monthly PLB standings for March with 2,766 points, narrowly capturing his second trophy. Turmezey took down three online MTTs during the month: the partypoker High Roller, 888 Baby Whale, and PokerStars $109 No Limit Hold'em Turbo. The trio was worth $50,000 total and helped boost his career winnings to over $5.7 million. Second place in the MPLB standings for March belonged to Joao 'joaomathias' Mathias, who had 2,877 points and trailed Czuczor by just 29. He finished third in the PokerStars Sunday 500 on March 20 for $47,000 and 365 PLB Points. That score came two weeks after he placed fourth in the site's Sunday Warm-Up and put back $27,000. [caption width="640"] Second place in the March MPLB went to Joao 'joaomathias' Mathias[/caption] Mathias has tasted MPLB victory twice before. He won the monthly races in July 2011 and January 2015 with 2,313 and 2,970 points, respectively. In fact, Mathias is responsible for one-third of the MPLB trophies hoisted by Brazilian players, and he took 12th in the February MPLB standings. Ivan 'ivanvilchez8' Vilchez was the third place finisher in the March MPLB. The Argentinian had a pair of monstrous cashes during the month, the first of which came on March 8. That day, he took down the PokerStars Super Tuesday and cashed for $92,000 and 699 PLB Points. Not to be outdone, 13 days later he finished second in the partypoker Pokerfest Main Event and earned $136,000 along with 635 PLB Points. Those were the two largest in the money finishes of Vilchez's career. And as if those weren't enough, he finished third in the PokerStars Sunday Second Chance last month for $22,000 and also grabbed second in the 888 Baby Whale, boosting his bankroll by another $20,000. Vilchez is #53 in the PocketFives Rankings and is the top dog in Argentina. Sweden's 'Discoovery' finished in fifth place with 2,718 points, fewer than 200 off the lead. He's up to #56 worldwide in the PocketFives Rankings, took down seven tournaments in the last four days of March, and he has since won four more to bring his career total to 25. His largest score of March was worth $13,000 and came via a fourth place finish in a Powerfest event. Here were the top 10 in the March MPLB: noirduck - 2,906.88 points joaomathias - 2,877.76 points ivanvilchez8 - 2,784.13 points breeth - 2,766.82 points Discoovery - 2,718.94 points lena900 - 2,657.01 points DBerglin - 2,646.15 points Big Huni - 2,495.17 points Blackk - 2,426.32 points Sheater - 2,419.18 points
  6. [caption width="450"] Aleksandr 'NoPlanB' Mordvinov won the PocketFives Monthly Leaderboard for the second time in three months[/caption] In a month that saw many of the top pros spend the first two weeks in Las Vegas for the World Series of Poker, Russia's Aleksandr 'NoPlanB' Mordvinov, ranked #3 in the world, struck gold once again. For the second time in three months, Mordvinov won the PocketFives Monthly Leaderboard. He won the leaderboard in May with 3,899 points and accomplished the same feat this time around with 2,523 points. He has half of Russia's four Monthly Leaderboard wins. "It was a pretty good month," he said. "I played a lot after vacation in June and ran decently. I plan to keep it going." All told, Mordvinov had 101 tracked in the money finishes during the month for exactly $172,000 total winnings, an average of $1,702 per cash. The Russian started July off with a bang, taking down the PokerStars $320 Saturday KO on July 2 for $15,000. The next day, he won the site's Big $109. Also in July, Mordvinov won the $20,000 Octopus on 888, the PokerStars.fr Sunday High Roller, the $109 No Limit Hold'em Progressive Six-Max on PokerStars twice, the BlackChip HS Wednesday, and a $162 No Limit Hold'em Ultra Deep Stack on PokerStars. Not surprisingly, Mordvinov is all the way up to #3 worldwide in the PocketFives Rankings, his highest position ever, and #1 in his home country. His $172,000 in winnings in July pushed him over $3.8 million in lifetime cashes. You can find him across the world's largest online poker rooms playing under the user name 'EvnomiYa' and, interestingly enough, he did not appear in the top 100 in the June Leaderboard race. Second place in July went to Hungary's 'greengrass67', who with 2,452 points was only 71 points behind Mordvinov. Like Mordvinov, 'greengrass67' is at his apex in the rankings at #26. 'greengrass67', the top-ranked Hungarian online poker player, had five online MTT wins during the month, the largest of which was worth $23,000 for taking down the Big $109 on July 24. He also won the partypoker Heavyweight Rocky, partypoker Heavyweight Super Knockout, PokerStars $320 No Limit Hold'em Six Max, and partypoker High Roller. [caption width="640"] Joao 'joaomathias' Mathias finished in third place last month[/caption] One-hundred points behind 'greengrass67' on the July leaderboard was Joao 'joaomathias' Mathias, who had 2,346 points, good for third place. Mathias is ranked #7 in the world and is a two-time Monthly Leaderboard champion. He won the PokerStars Super-Sized Sunday last month for $32,000 along with the site's Sunday Supersonic for another $30,000. Mathias is over $8.1 million in career online tournament winnings, the 12th highest total of anyone, and started August off with a bang by winning the PokerStars Super Tuesday two days ago for $75,000. The #1 ranked online poker player in the world, Sweden's 'C Darwin2', finished in fourth in the July MPLB race with 2,342 points, missing out on third place by only four points. He was ranked #1 almost the entire month of July and held down the fort thanks to wins in the PokerStars Sunday Grand, PokerStars Bounty Builder, and Winamax High Roller. Rounding out the top five was Artem 'veeea' Vezhenkov, who had 2,334 points. Vezhenkov is a two-time MPLB champion and also won his fourth PocketFives Triple Crown last month. He had seven tracked wins in July and finished second in the Pokertars Super-Sized Sunday on July 10 for $18,000, his largest score of the period. The top 10 in July: NoPlanB - 2,523.69 points greengrass67 - 2,452.53 points joaomathias - 2,346.74 points C Darwin2 - 2,342.92 points veeea - 2,334.47 points FouEnculePL - 2,277.98 points normannolly - 2,262.40 points JMolloy - 2,182.60 points TheSquid - 2,076.29 points DeathbyQuads - 2,063.49 points
  7. [caption width="639"] Artem 'veeea' Vezhenkov, a former #1 on PocketFives, is inching closer to the top spot[/caption] Once you hit #1 on PocketFives, you're in pretty elite company. Chris 'moorman1' Moorman, World Series of Poker November Niners Cliff 'JohnnyBax' Josephy and Griffin 'Flush_Entity' Benger, and Fedor 'CrownUpGuy' Holz – they've all been at the top of the podium. To be ranked #1 multiple times is a feat few have accomplished, but two PocketFivers are poised to do exactly that. Artem 'veeea' Vezhenkov and Joao 'joaomathias' Mathias, both already in the top 10 in the PocketFives Rankings, inched up closer this week to claiming the #1 title for the second time. Vezhenkov, from Russia, is up four spots to #3 this week. He took down a $320 No Limit Hold'em Six Max tournament on PokerStars on Tuesday for $6,800 and won the partypoker Heavyweight Uppercut for $7,200 last Wednesday to help him continue to climb the leaderboard. He has $5.4 million in career online tournament winnings and is the top-ranked Russian on PocketFives. Vezhenkov was #1 for a one-week stint in January. Mathias, from Brazil, rose three spots to #7. He hit it big over the weekend, winning the PokerStars Super-Sized Sunday for $32,000, his 13th largest score. That came one month after he took down the site's Thursday Thrill for $37,000. Mathias just hit $8 million in career winnings and, amazingly, has almost 700 top-three finishes in tracked tournaments. He was also last ranked #1 in January. Vezhenkov and Mathias have 7,285 and 6,946 PLB Points, respectively. The entire community trails top-ranked 'C Darwin2', from Sweden, who has a PLB score of 7,868 points. The Swede won the Winamax High Roller on Tuesday for $8,500 and, two weeks ago, took down the Sunday Grand for almost $50,0000 to pad his lead. 'C Darwin2' has been ranked #1 since July 6. Hungary's 'greengrass67' continued to climb the leaderboard, moving up another 20 spots this week to #27 in the world. On July 24, he won both the partypoker Heavyweight Rocky and PokerStars Big $109 for almost $30,000 total, the 26th and 27th online MTT wins of his career and his fourth and fifth wins of July. This is the highest 'greengrass67' has ever been ranked. Romania's Andrei 'ragaaaila19' Boghean also hit it big this week, entering the top 100 for the first time ever at #59. He's been on a tear over the last 10 days, winning both the PokerStars Big $215 and Sunday Warm-Up for $75,000 total. The same day as his Warm-Up win, he finished fourth in the Big $109. Boghean has $1.2 million in career online tournament winnings and is the #2-ranked player in Romania. Also new to the top 100 is 'FouEnculePL', who calls the UK home. He entered at #82 after winning the PokerStars Big $215 earlier this month for $20,000, his largest cash ever. 'FouEnculePL' is the ninth-ranked player in the UK and is $9,000 shy of hitting $900,000 for his career. [caption width="450"] Mayu 'marroca5' Roca Uribe is up to #66[/caption] Columbia's Mayu 'marroca5' Roca Uribe made waves, moving up 19 spots to #66, three off his all-time high. He finished third in the Super-Sized Sunday over the weekend for $13,000, which propelled him to almost $4.4 million in lifetime winnings. Uribe is the #2-ranked player in his home country. Finally, Rasmus 'RasA' Agerskov Larsen, from Denmark, reentered the top 100 at #89. On Monday, the Dane took down both the partypoker Heavyweight Main Event and PokerStars Monday Six Max for $38,000 total, pushing his career win total to 54. The Heavyweight Main Event cash, which was worth $25,000, was his third largest score of 2016. The Top 10: C Darwin2 - 7,868 points 1_conor_b_1 - 7,377 points veeea - 7,285 points NoPlanB - 7,284 points lena900 - 7,215 points Pot4teUS - 7,008 points joaomathias - 6,997 points joaosimaobh - 6,946 points JMolloy - 6,769 points Greenstone25 - 6,723 points
  8. [caption width="618"] Rocco 'RoccoGe' Palumbo moved up 15 spots in the PocketFives Rankings to #8, his best showing ever[/caption] There was a lot of movement in the top 10 of the PocketFives Online Poker Rankings this week. What didn't change, however, was the #1 ranked player in the world, 'C Darwin2', who is enjoying his second straight week in the top spot. What did change was the makeup of the top 10, which includes three new players. First, Greece's Damianos 'damourinio' Aslanidis moved up seven spots to #7 in the world, his highest ranking ever. He made a splash in a PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker $2,100 No Limit Hold'em Six Max, finishing in fourth place for $108,000 and 542 PLB Points. Aslanidis is closing in on $2 million in career online tournament winnings as a result and is the top-ranked player in his home country. Also riding a major SCOOP score into the top 10 of the rankings is Rocco 'RoccoGe' Palumbo, who moved up 15 spots to #8, his best showing ever. The World Series of Poker bracelet winner finished second in a SCOOP $2,100 No Limit Hold'em Eight Max High Roller over the weekend for a whopping $222,000 and 847 PLB Points. It was his largest online cash ever. Palumbo, from Genoa, Italy, is up to almost 400 top-three finishes in online MTTs, is about to pass $4 million in lifetime winnings, and just hit $2 million on PokerStars, where he plays under the handle 'sephirot88'. "I'm super happy with the result that put me at #8," Palumbo said of his SCOOP score. "It's the first time that I've really been doing great on PokerStars.com. I look forward to attacking the rankings now that I'm in the black." [caption width="640"] Joao 'joaomathias' Mathias is up six spots in the rankings to #9[/caption] The third and final newcomer to the top 10 of the rankings this week was Joao 'joaomathias' Mathias, who rose six spots to #9. Mathias was ranked #1 on PocketFives as recently as January 2015, so being in the top 10 isn't anything new, but this time around his march toward the top comes on the heels of two recent wins. The first came on partypoker in the site's Heavyweight $50,000 Guaranteed Rebuy, a tournament he took down for $11,000 and 223 PLB Points. Then he found the winner's circle of the PokerStars $320 No Limit Hold'em Six Max for $7,500 and 166 PLB Points. Those two brought his career win total to 260. Outside of the top 10, Matas 'bebaimis777' Cimbolas was up 32 spots to #17. He was the runner-up in a SCOOP $2,100 No Limit Hold'em event for over a quarter-of-a-million dollars and almost 1,000 PLB Points, shooting him up the leaderboard into the top 20. This is the highest he has ever been ranked on PocketFives and, to boot, Cimbolas just passed $2 million in career online tournament winnings. "I feel great about it," Cimbolas said. "I am focusing on my game right now." Uruguay's 'elHongo' reentered the top 100 this week at #36 in the world, one spot shy of his all-time high set in 2015. He defeated 'Cimbolas' in the aforementioned SCOOP $2,100 No Limit Hold'em event and bagged a healthy $357,000 along with 1,409 PLB Points. He's the top-ranked online poker player in the South American nation and plays as 'elmelogno4' on PokerStars. Johannes 'Greenstone25' Korsar moved up from #75 to #38. With almost $8 million in career online tournament winnings, the 13th most of anyone in the online poker community, Korsar final tabled the SCOOP Super Tuesday last week for almost $45,000 and won the Hot $109 over the weekend for another $25,000. That was his 157th career win. Australia's Martin 'Tiny_molester' Kozlov moved up 45 spots to #43 on PocketFives. Like other players who shot up the leaderboard, Kozlov excelled in early SCOOP action, finishing fifth in a $21,000 No Limit Hold'em Eight Max High Roller for $190,000 over the weekend. Kozlov is the second-ranked online poker player in Australia and was ranked as high as #2 in the world last year. Finally, Dylan 'ImaLucSac' Linde is up 43 spots to #46, his highest ranking ever. The longtime PocketFiver has three top-10 finishes in SCOOP events this year, including a sixth place finish in a $1,050 Pot Limit Omaha Six Max Rebuy on May 10 for $27,000. Linde also finished eighth in a SCOOP $2,100 No Limit Hold'em Eight Max event on the 15th. When the final cards were dealt, he Tweeted, "Another day, another 8th place in a SCOOP-H. All the pain and all the profits combined yet again." This week's top 10: C Darwin2 - 8,136 points joaosimaobh - 8,052 points lena900 - 7,753 points 1_conor_b_1 - 7,315 points Ariados - 7,087 points Big Huni - 7,044 points damourinio - 6,938 points RoccoGe - 6,860 points joaomathias - 6,808 points moorman1 - 6,740 points
  9. [caption width="640"] 'Joao Mathias 'joaomathias' Baumgarten retook the #1 spot this week for the first time since 2015[/caption] For 10 straight weeks Sweden's 'C Darwin2' held down the #1 spot on the PocketFives Rankings and fought off all of those who came calling for the crown. Well that streak is over now after Brazilian Joao Mathias 'joaomathias' Baumgarten put together a solid enough week to climb all the way up from #4 to #1. Baumgarten’s move was largely thanks to an amazing run on September 13. In the span of just a few hours he finished eighth in the $1,050 buy-in World Championship of Online Poker Pot Limit Omaha Hi-Lo Championship for $8,455 and 176.33 PLB points, third in the PokerStars $215 buy-in Fat Tuesday for $15,229 and 204.96 points and finally topping the 284-player field in the Volcano on 888 poker for $32,252 and 404.16 points. He wasn’t done there though. Later in the week Baumgarten was runner up in the Hot $44 on PokerStars for $3,640/113.35 and then runner-up in the partypoker Super High Roller on Sunday for $34,500/274.02. 'C Darwin2' fell only one spot. He remains with striking distance of top spot thanks to three big scores over the last seven days. The Swedish poker pro finished 22nd in the WCOOP $10,300 High Roller for $43,074/295.31, took second place in the $109 Bubble Rush on PokerStars and then third in partypoker Powerfest High Roller for $26,400/265.78. He sits just 103.63 behind Baumgarten. Another player who made a big jump is Alex ‘alexd2’ Dimitrov. The Buglarian went from #5 to #3 this week and unlike most of his colleagues, improved his position with the benefit of a massive WCOOP score. Dimitrov started the week off winning the 888 poker Tornado for $6,622 and 174.62 points. He then won the partypoker Powerfest Six Max High Roller, earning $22,167 and 298.33 on Thursday. That same day he finished runner-up in the Winamax High Roller event for $6,012/119.87. He then picked up another $5,075 and 163.03 points thanks to a seventh place finish in the PokerStars Sunday SuperSonic. This marks the third time that Dimitrov has climbed all the way to #3 - his career high. While Baumgarten and Dimitrov moved up this week, none of the top five fell out of that group. ‘C Darwin2’ fell one spot to #2 while another Swede, ‘lena900’ dropped from #2 to #5. There was just as much movement in spots #6 - #10 even though no new players cracked the top 10. Johannes 'Greenstone25' Korsar moved up from #9 to #6. Korsar had two big scores this week. He finished second in the PokerStars.fr Half Million event for $68,696 and 531.85 points. Then on Sunday he recorded a fifth place finish in WCOOP Event #51, $1,050 Six Max No Limit Hold’em. That earned the Swedish pro $30,618 and 354.92 points. This marks a career-best ranking for Korsar, one of five Swedish players in the top 10. Another one of those Swedes is right behind Korsar. Andreas 'r4ndomr4gs' Berggen moved from #10 to #7 this week and he also has a WCOOP score to thank. Berggen finished eighth in WCOOP Event #35, $1,575 Super Tuesday Special Edition for $33,218 and 387.69 points. The next day he conquered the field in the partypoker PowerFest Six Max Turbo High Roller for $15,626.

  10. The 2016 World Championship of Online Poker has most definitely hit the home stretch with just four days left of new events. Wednesday's action included three players winning WCOOP titles for the first time in their careers and a Championship final table that was loaded with star power. Hungary's Rui 'sousinha23' Sousa beat out 2,357 other players to win the $320 Win the Button event and $104,284.57.Ivan 'Negriin' Luca finished second for just under $75,000. Fabrizo 'SixthSenSe19' Gonzalez, who already has a 2016 WCOOP title to his credit, finished fourth for $38,755.40. That finish moves Gonzalez into top spot on the PokerStars WCOOP Leaderboard. While Sousa walked away with six figures, his score paled in comparison to what fellow Hungarian Jorge 'jorginho88' Abreu won. Abreu topped the 904-player field to win Event #60, the $2,100 Super Tuesday Special Edition and walk away with $304,880.49. High stakes cash game regular ' caaaaamel' finished runner-up for $223,476.03. Joao Mathias 'joaoMathias' Baumgarten, who moved to #1 in the PocketFives Rankings on Wednesday, topped off his big day by finishing third for $163,807.15. Cyrpus' Dimitri 'MITS 304' Michaelides managed to break the streak of Hungarian winners on Wednesday by coming out on top of the $1,050 Razz Championship. The final table included Frederik 'Fred_Brink' Jensen, Dzmitry 'Colisea' Urbanovich, Natasha 'natashab86' Barbour and former World Series of Poker Player of the Year, Mike 'gordo16' Gorordinsky.

  11. [caption width="640"] Joao 'joaosimaobh' Simao might be on his way back to the #1 ranking. (PokerStars photo)[/caption] For the ninth straight week Sweden's 'C Darwin2' is sitting on top of the PocketFives rankings but if he's not careful, he's going to find two guys named Joao passing him by soon. 'C Darwin2' had just eight cashes over the last seven days and none were big enough to add to his lead. His biggest score was in the PokerStars Hot $215 where he finished 27th for $570. While the Swede continues to hang on, two Brazilians continue to close the gap and the last player to hold the #1 spot before he took over is now within striking distance. Joao 'joaosimaobh' Simao moved from #4 to #2 thanks to a Sunday haul that included two big wins and one other score that added to his points total. Simao finished 117th in Event #2 of the World Championship of Online Poker or $1,759 and 117 points. He then took down an $82 No Limit Hold'em Six Max Hyper Turbo event on PokerStars for $6,931 and 197.41 points. That was just the appetizer though. He wrapped up his Sunday with a win in the partypoker Super High Roller for $52,197 and a whopping 441.59 points. Simao now has 7,382.04 PLB points, trailing 'C Darwin2' by just 401.04 points. Joao Mathias 'joaomathias' Baumgarten, who was #2 last week, fell one spot this week to #3. He still managed to add to his total, though. He cashed 23 times with three of them earning him PLB points. He won the PokerStars Omania High Roller for $9,230 and 207.12 points. He also finished fourth in the PokerStars Big $215 on Sunday for $12,302 and 192.9 and 29th in WCOOP Event #1 for $3,217 and 169.9. Another Swede, 'lena900', sits fourth overall giving the Scandinavian poker powerhouse a bookend on the two Brazilians. 'lena900' had 33 cashes this past week with three of them earning enough PLB points to move him from #5 to #4. He finished third in the partypoker High Roller for $8,262 and 134.89, fourth in the PokerStars $1,050 Sunday Grand for $18,266 and 222.37 and 28th in WCOOP Event #1 for $3,217 and 173.52. Despite wrapping up the August Monthly PLB title, Alex 'alexd2' Dimitrov dropped from #3 to #5. The top-ranked Bulgarian returned to a full schedule in the first week of September after taking some time off in August for a vacation. His biggest score this past week was a win in the $109 NLHE event on PokerStars on Monday that earned him $3,749 and 137,48 points. Working his way back into the top 10 this week was Jimmy 'JMolloy' Molloy. The Canadian grinder took down the PokerStars Big $55 for $9,097 and 239.9 on Saturday and then finished runner-up in the $109 Six Max Hyper-Turbo NLHE on PokerStars on Monday for $4,979 and 132.24. The only player to drop out of the top 10 this week was Sweden's Jonatan 'Pot4teUS' Hellman who dropped from #10 to #12.

  12. [caption width="640"] Brazil's Joao 'joaomathias' Mathias is within 33 points of being the top player in the PocketFives Rankings[/caption] Two players who have spent time as the #1 ranked player on PocketFives are duking it out for the title of top dog on PocketFives. Your combatants: Sweden's 'C Darwin2', who has been ranked #1 since early July, and Brazil's Joao 'joaomathias' Mathias, just 33 PLB Points off the lead. 'C Darwin2' continues to churn out results and preserve his perch atop the PocketFives Rankings. He won the partypoker High Roller on August 4 for $14,000 and 247 PLB Points. A week earlier, he won Winamax's version of the High Roller for $8,500. He's at 66 career online tournament wins and is approaching $4.5 million in career cashes. Mathias is up five spots this week to #2 and is searching for his second stint ever at #1. His first reign as the #1 online poker player in the world came in January 2015. On Sunday, he final tabled the PokerStars Sunday Million for $12,000 and, last week, he won the site's Super Tuesday for a massive haul of $75,000 and 643 PLB Points. Mathias has 265 career wins in tournaments tracked by PocketFives – more than the number of top-three finishes his Swedish foe has – and owns $8.1 million in winnings over the years. He's a five-time PocketFives Triple Crown winner and #1 in his homeland of Brazil. The top 10 saw very little movement other than Mathias' five-spot ascent. Outside of that group, Shyam 's_dot111' Srinivasan is up 12 spots to return to the top 20 at #19. He finished second to Mathias in last week's Super Tuesday for $55,000, one of three runner-up finishes he's turned in already in August. Srinivasan just passed $9 million in career winnings and was ranked as high as #4 in the world five years ago. Argentina's Cristian 'progre69' Sampaoli ticked up 12 spots to #35. This month, he's won the PokerStars Hot $109 and finished second in the partypoker High Roller for almost $40,000 combined and is inching his way toward $2 million in career winnings. This is the highest he has ever been ranked on PocketFives and he's the top-ranked player in the South American country. The highest-ranked newcomer to the top 100 this week was 'ekziter', who can now be found at #42. He was once as high as #6 and in the first 10 days of August, 'ekziter' finished second in the PokerStars Omania High Roller, won a $320 No Limit Hold'em Six Max, and final tabled the Sunday Million. Those three scores were worth about $35,000 combined. And on Sunday, he took fifth in the 888 Whale. [caption width="640"] Bracelet winner Martin 'Tiny_molester' Kozlov moved up 20 spots this week[/caption] Australia's Martin 'Tiny_molester' Kozlov moved up 20 positions on the worldwide leaderboard to #67. This former #2-ranked player took third in the 888 Mega Deep over the weekend for $13,000 and won the site's Tuesday Crocodile for $5,900 last week. Kozlov is the #2 player in Australia and is about to hit $3 million in career winnings. He earned his first World Series of Poker bracelet this year. Denmark's 'x_zola25' reentered the top 100 at #79. He was ranked as high as #9 in the world last year and is now making a run thanks in part to dual wins on Sunday in the partypoker Heavyweight Drago and PokerStars Big $215. He final tabled the partypoker Super High Roller on the final day of July as well and he's the #3-ranked player in Denmark. Finally, Vicente 'vicenfish' Delgado Zamorano reappeared in the top 100 at #85. He was the runner-up in the Sunday Warm-Up over the weekend for $38,000 and turned in three tracked wins in the last three days of July. Zamorano is the #10-ranked player in the UK. This week's top 10: C Darwin2 - 7,522 points joaomathias - 7,489 points NoPlanB - 7,439 points veeea - 7,255 points 1_conor_b_1 - 7,246 points lena900 - 7,188 points Pot4teUS - 7,042 points Greenstone25 - 6,770 points JMolloy - 6,568 points joaosimaobh - 6,548 points
  13. [caption width="640"] The profile and key stats for the new #1 ranked player on PocketFives, 'C Darwin2'[/caption] The more tournaments you run deep in, the higher you're going to go in the PocketFives Rankings. The rankings formula emphasizes prize pools and finish positions, and Sweden's 'C Darwin2' put on a clinic over the last week in both to become the #1 player in all the land. Last Thursday, the Swede won the partypoker High Roller, which had a $50,000 prize pool, and raked in $13,000. For the win, 'C Darwin2' also booked a $13,000 payday and 223 PocketFives Leaderboard points. The same day, he took silver in the site's Heavyweight Uppercut for another $7,000 and 147 points. On Sunday, it was more of the same. This time, 'C Darwin2' took third in the partypoker Super High Roller, which had a $102,000 prize pool, and earned $15,000 along with 165 PLB Points. Just like that, he rose from #2 to #1 in the PocketFives Rankings, his fifth stint at the top. His lead, at least right now, seems fairly tenuous since his 7,710 PLB Points are just 50 ahead of the next closest person. Nevertheless, he's ranked #1 for the fifth time in his career. Here are his stints in the top spot: February 10, 2016 - February 17, 2016 April 27, 2016 - May 4, 2016 May 11, 2016 - June 1, 2016 June 8, 2016 - June 22, 2016 July 6, 2016 - ??? Last week's #1 player in the world, Brazil's Joao 'joaosimaobh' Simao, didn't drop very far. He's now at #2 and nipping at 'C Darwin2's' heels with a PLB score of 7,656 points. The Brazilian had three scores of at least $40,000 in May and should continue to be a staple of the top of the rankings, perhaps even the #1 player as soon as next week. Moscow's Aleksandr 'NoPlanB' Mordvinov was up nine spots to #6, his highest ranking ever. He's fresh off winning the May PocketFives Leaderboard race. That month, he took down his second PocketFives Triple Crown. In the last week, Mordvinov has won the PokerStars $320 Saturday Knockout and Big $109 for over $20,000 total and finished fourth in the Big $215 on Monday. Mordvinov has $3.6 million in career online tournament winnings from 3,343 in the money finishes, an average of $1,105 each. He plays on PokerStars under the user name 'EvnomiYa'. [caption width="640"] Brazil's Joao 'joaomathias' Mathias is back in the top 10 this week[/caption] Reentering the top 10 this week was a familiar face: Brazil's Joao 'joaomathias' Mathias, who can be found at #9. He's on the verge of becoming just the 12th person in online poker history to hit $8 million in winnings and took down the PokerStars Sunday Supersonic over the weekend for a commanding $30,000 and 423 PLB Points. The 262nd win of his tournament career inched him closer to claiming the top spot in the rankings, a position he last held in January of last year. Outside of the top 10, Russia's Maxim 'decay' Lykov moved up 19 positions to #53. He won the PokerStars $10K Payday over the weekend for $16,000 to help his cause, his 135th career win. Lykov is up to $4.6 million in lifetime online MTT winnings and is the sixth-ranked player in his home country. He plays on PokerStars under the screen name '$uperdecay'. Uruguay's 'rph' ticked up 17 spots to #65 after a week in which he won the Big $55, took second in the Big $215, and finished third in the Hot $109 for $20,000 total. He also made the final two tables of this week's Super Tuesday, bowing out in 12th place. 'rph' is $30,000 away from hitting $4 million for his career and is the top-ranked online poker player in Uruguay. Brazil's Fabiano 'Kovalski' Kovalski entered the top 100 at #82, his highest ranking ever. He took second in the 888 Baby Whale over the weekend for $11,000 and won the Big $109 the day before that for $8,300. Kovalski is the #4 player in Brazil and he's nearing 2,000 tracked in the money finishes. Finally, Rick 'TheClaimeer' Trigg is back. Once ranked #4 in the world, Trigg re-cracked the top 100 at #88. He finished fourth in the partypoker Heavyweight Main Event on July 3 for $10,000 two days after taking down the site's Uppercut for $9,100, one of four wins he's had in the last week. Trigg is the 10th-ranked player in the UK. This week's top 10: C Darwin2 - 7,710 points joaosimaobh - 7,656 points lena900 - 7,586 points Pot4teUS - 7,423 points 1_conor_b_1 - 7,417 points NoPlanB - 7,035 points veeea - 6,921 points damourinio - 6,905 points joaomathias - 6,897 points RoccoGe - 6,839 points
  14. The one constant with the PocketFives Rankings the past 10 weeks has been the name at the top and the frequency at which the name in the #2 spot has changed. Sweden’s ‘C Darwin2’ has been #1 since July 6 and since then a handful of players have occupied the spot right behind him. For the third week in a row the player sitting second has changed with another Swede, ‘lena900’, moving up from #4 last week. Over the last seven days ‘C Darwin2’ cashed 33 times but only a runner-up finish in the PokerStars Hot $215 earned enough points to impact his PLB score. The second place result earned him $18,593 and 256.2 points to give him a total of 7,833.73. Meanwhile ‘lena900’ had a milestone setting week. With 35 total cashes for $91,849 in earnings, the former #1-ranked player surpassed the $5 million lifetime earnings mark. Four of those cashes were big enough for ‘lena900’ to add to his PLB score. He started the week with a second place finish in the partypoker High Roller for $25,900 and 283.77 points and the next day finished fourth in a World Championship of Online Poker event for $17,322 and 216.97 points. He also finished second in the $215 buy-in PokerStars Weekender for $13,930 and 215.81 points before wrapping up the week with a third place finish in the PokerStars Hot $109 for $7,967 and 157.15 points. He’s now 275.23 points behind ‘C Darwin2’ and is the fourth player to find themselves sitting second since his reign began. To get to #2, ‘lena900’ leapfrogged the two Brazilians who sat #2 and #3 last week. Joao 'joaosimaobh' Simao and Joao Mathias 'joaomathias' Baumgarten each dropped one spot to #2 and #3 respectively this week. Simao only had one cash big enough to earn him PLB points to add to his total this week, but it was a big one. Simao finished first in the $320 Six Max No Limit Hold’em event on PokerStars on Monday. He earned $8,501 and added 201.25 PLB points to his total. Baumgarten had two scores bookend his week of play that added to his PLB score. He opened the week by bubbling the final table of WCOOP event 14 for $4,026 in cash and 184.04 points. He closed the week with a third place finish in the $215 Fat Tuesday on PokerStars for $15,229 and 204.96. He now has 7,450.46 points and is just 383.27 points behind ‘C Darwin2’. Despite cashing 33 times this past week, Alex ‘alexd2’ Dimitrov only had one good enough to help his PLB score. The top ranked player in Bulgaria finished eighth in WCOOP Event #27, $215 Sunday Warm-up Special Edition. That finish earned $17,703 and 368.23 points, his fifth biggest points haul ever. There were two players - both Swedes - who moved up in to the top 10. Jonatan 'Pot4teUS' Hellman jumped from #12 to #7 on the backs of three qualifying cashes while Andreas ‘r4ndomr4gs’ Berggren jumped from #11 to #10. There are a total of five Swedish players ranked in the top with #9-ranked Johannes 'Greenstone25' Korsar rounding out the group. Dropping out of the top 10 were Artem ‘veeea’ Vezhenkov and Jimmy 'JMolloy' Molloy.

  15. [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.

  16. [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.

  17. [caption width="640"] Fabricio ‘SixthSenSe19’ Gonzalez's hot streak has propelled to the #1 spot on the PocketFives Rankings (SHRPO photo)[/caption] You could say that things are going well right now for Fabricio ‘SixthSenSe19’ Gonzalez. A little less than three weeks ago he won a World Championship of Online Poker title, his second, after outlasting an elite field in the $1,050 Triple Draw 2-7 Championship. He continued to crush WCOOP, cashing 24 times on his way to winning the WCOOP Leaderboard. Now he’s got another feather he can put in his cap. Number one ranked online poker player in the world. Gonzalez took over the #1 spot this past week, ending the two-week reign of Joao Mathias ‘joaomathias’ Baumgarten, thanks to an impressive performance on Sunday in two of PokerStars’ biggest buy-in events. Gonzalez finished fourth in the $1,050 Sunday Grand No Limit Hold’em to earn $23,872 and 239.6 PLB points. At nearly the exact same time he finished third in the Sunday Grand Pot Limit Omaha event for $24,362/250.32. Those two scores put him past the 9,300 point mark and gave the Uruguayan the #1 spot for the first time in his career. Baumgarten dropped to #2 after posting only one cash big enough to count toward his PLB score. The Brazilian, who has been #1 on two occasions for a total of three weeks, finished 10th in the $2,600 buy-in partypoker Super High Roller on Sunday for 108.77 points. While the top two spots swapped places, Sweden’s ‘C Darwin2’ maintained his hold on the #3 spot even though none of his six cashes this past week earned him enough points to count towards his PLB total. ‘C Darwin2’ was #1-ranked player for 11 straight weeks before Baumgarten passed him two weeks ago. Alex ‘alexd2’ Dimitrov also managed to hang on to his spot. The Bulgarian took down a $500 buy-in event on Black Chip Poker for $2,193 and 106.54 points for his only qualifying cash of the week. ‘lena900’, one of three Swedish players in the top 10, moved up to #5 from #6 this week, swapping positions with Brazilian, and former #1-ranked Joao ‘joaosimaobh’ Simao. Only one player broke into the top 10 this week. ‘European’ moved up from #13 to #10 thanks to an 11th place finish in the PokerStars Super Tuesday for $4,448/136.69. Johannes ‘Greenstone25’ Korsar was the only player to fall out of the top 10. He’s now #11 in the world and #4 in Sweden.

  18. [caption width="640"] Fabrizio 'SixthSenSe19' Gonzalez must feel like the entire population of Sweden is breathing down his neck (SHRPO photo)[/caption] Fabrizio 'SixthSenSe19' Gonzalez is still the #1-ranked online poker player in the world but just barely. Gonzalez stayed in the top spot for the third consecutive week but #2-ranked 'lena900' closed the gap significantly. For the second straight week, Gonzalez was unable to find a score big enough to add to his PLB points total. He cashed just three times with his best finishing being a 12th-place result in the Black Chip Poker $200 Sunday Special PLO. Gonzalez's overall lead over his nearest threat is just 67.02 after some of his older scores dropped off of his total. The next four players in the rankings all come from Sweden. 'lena900' continued his grip on the #2 spot even though he had a week with no scores big enough to add to his total. The same can't be said for the man in the #3 position. 'C Darwin2' won the partypoker High Roller on February 21 for $10,331 and 208.57 points. The former #1-ranked player is now 443.02 points behind 'lena900'. The top three players have really separated themselves from the rest of the field with just 500 points separating #1 from #3. The gap between #3 and #4 is much, much wider. 'Inhoo' moved up from #5 to #4 after he finished third in the partypoker High Roller on Sunday for $14,875 and 197.99 points. Even with the move up, 'inhoo' is 1,857.22 points behind 'C Darwin2'. Rounding out the run of Swede's in the top five is Andreas 'r4ndomr4gs' Berggren at #5. Berggren, who was #6 last week, won the PokerStars Hot $215 on February 22 and then rounded out the week with another win, this time in the PokerStars $109 Six Max Hyper Turbo. All told the former #1 added 385.64 points to his total. Moving into the top 10 was yet another Swedish player. 'Ariados', who was once ranked as high as #2 in the world, moved all the way up to #6 after beating out 1,447 other players in the $109 buy-in PokerStars Sunday Cooldown. The win was worth $22,223 and 380.53 PLB points. The biggest drop of the week belonged to Bulgarian Alex 'alexd2' Dimitrov. Having owned the #4 spot the past seven weeks, Dimitrov fell all the way to #9. Despite cashing 37 times in the last week, not a single one was strong enough to add to his PLB total. The only player to fall out of the top 10 this week was Russia's 'Blackk', who dropped from #10 to #11.

  19. [caption width="640"] Another week, another change atop the PocketFives Rankings as 'C Darwin2' takes back the #1 spot[/caption] Just one week ago, 'lean900' took over the #1 spot in the PocketFives Rankings after a 12-week long reign by 'C Darwin2'. That's all part of the history books now as 'C Darwin2' jumped from the #3 spot back to the #1 spot thanks to a pair of qualifying cashes. 'C Darwin2' opened his week with a fifth place finish in the partypoker Middleweight for $4,406 and 137.06 PocketFives Leaderboard points. Then, on October 11, he beat out 218 other players to win a the PokerStars Big $215 for $8,566 and 209.28 points. This is the seventh time that 'C Darwin2' has held down the #1 spot, dating back to his first reign in February 2012, for $8,565.54 and 209.28 points. 'lena900' fell to #3 largely because some of his older scores had aged out of his score. He seemingly did everything he could to hold on to the #1 spot this past week, winning the 888poker Volcano on October 10 and then finshing runner-up in the PokerStars Omania High Roller. $19,620 and 372.16 points. Moving up one spot to #2 was Steven 'SvZff' van Zedelhoff. Just two weeks after winning the PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker Main Event, van Zedelhoff picked up another 693.43 points from five qualifying cashes over the past week. His biggest single score came from a runner-up finish in the PokerStars $55 Sunday Stack for $10,919 and 228.4 points. The only other change inside of the top 10 also saw two Swedes swapping places. Robin 'inhoo' Ylitalo and 'Sheater' traded the #7 and #8 spots, with Ylitalo taking #7.
