  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. [caption width="640"] Connor Drinan, who plays out of Vancouver, takes over as the new Canadian #1. (WPT photo)[/caption] Some of the best online poker players in the world play from the confines of Canada. A breeding ground of some the game’s most influential players including Daniel Negreanu, World Series of Poker Main Event Champion Jonathan Duhamel, Michel ‘SirWatts’ Watson and Mike ‘Timex’ McDonald. However, in the post-Black Friday scramble to keep the grind alive, many players from the U.S. moved north to set up shop so keep that in mind as we examine the current group that is the Canadian Top 10. Case in point, the new King In The North is actually from Arlington Heights, Illinois. Connor ‘blanconegro’ Drinan (6,596.41 PLB points), who had been lying in wait in the #2 spot, ascended to take the top spot this month with a series of eye-popping scores including his victory in the PokerStars Sunday 500 in late October for $49,153 and a runner-up finish in the PokerStars $2,100 Sunday High Roller for another $54,307. The scoring surge not only pushed Drinan into the #1 spot in Canada but catapulted him back into the Top 20 in the Worldwide Rankings, currently sitting at #18. The roles have reversed for Canada’s former #1-ranked player, Chris ‘Apotheosis’ Kruk (6,182.05) who now trails Drinan by just over 400 PLB points. A closer look into the number though, reveals Kruk’s amazing staying power. Since we last took a hard look at the Canadian rankings, Kruk has put in very light volume, recording merely four scores - two of which were for over $30,000. In total, Kruk amassed over $73,000 in four tournaments including a third place finish in the partypoker Super High Roller on November 12 for $31,889 and then, the very next day, a victory in the partypoker High Roller for an additional $34,005. Should he continue to post results like these, Kruk may be in line for another stay atop the Canadian rankings. Currently, Kruk sits as the #26-ranked player in the world and is very likely to eclipse $2 million in lifetime earnings in the very near future. The #3 spot belongs to the most recent winner of the partypokerLive Millions Punta Cana, Toronto’s Sam ‘Pudge714’ Greenwood (5515.83). Greenwood has been on a tear, both live and online, not only taking down the Main Event in Punta Cana, but finishing as the runner-up in the partypoker Punta Cana Super High Roller for $242,000 and, just days before that, banking another $124,100 for a third-place finish in the High Roller of the same series. While amazing, none of that factors into his current standing as the Canadian #3. Greenwood seemingly took most of October off from the online grind as he registered only a pair of scores, but he fired up the online client to get some reps in for Punta Cana in early November bringing in four four-figure scores and enough PLB points to hold his position - for now. Fewer than 84 points behind Greenwood sits Troy ‘iamthedeck ftw’ Quenneville. Unlike some of his high-rolling colleagues, the #4-ranked Quenneville is a true grinder - posting results on a near daily basis from the mid-stakes schedule up through the PokerStars Sunday Million. To date in November, Quenneville has posted roughly 80 cashes, including a third-place finish in the $22 Mini Sunday Supersonic good for $5,252. His relentless schedule has him approximately $60,000 shy of achieving $4.5 million in lifetime earnings. The current #69-ranked Worldwide player, Joel ‘jbrown8777’ Brown (5,153.78) rounds out the Top Five. Brown has been crushing the month of November with 36 four-figure scores thus far. That doesn’t include his fifth-place finish in the PokerStars $530 Bounty Builder High Roller for an additional $12,224. His productivity is sure to land him in the pages of the PocketFives.com Milestones column soon as he is set to hit $6 million in lifetime earnings any day now. Doug ‘OU_dlanger610’ Lang (5,067.09) has slid back a few spots in the past month or so and currently sits as the #6-ranked “Canadian”. Understandable though as the New York native has been putting in light volume since September, still benefiting (points wise) from his big PokerStars Sunday Million win back in late July. Joseph ‘Jughead11’ Lacasse (4,833.13) assumes the #7 spot as his ranking has been steadily on the rise. The new #1-ranked player in Ottawa has been putting in a ton of volume and posting a myriad of results on a daily basis. Not only is he appearing in the Canadian Top 10 this month, he recently just breached the Worldwide Top 100 rankings as well. Former #2-ranked player in the world, Mike ‘Pipedream17’ Dietrich (4,442.89) checks in at #8 still riding high off his PokerStars Sunday Million victory in mid-October where he won over $160,000 and accumulated a massive 1,090.69 point score. Sebastian ‘p0cket00’ Sikorski (4,321.57) continues to hold the #9 spot, trailing Dietrich by only 121.32 points and in November Samuel ‘Samuelbt’ Tsehai (4,192.15) scored victories in a pair PokerStars tournaments including the Bounty Builder for $4,757 and the Big $33 for $2,841 to climb into the final spot in the Top 10.

  5. [caption width="640"] Canada's current Top 10 is replete with some of online poker's strongest players[/caption] When it comes to the current crop of top-ranked online poker player in Canada, one must remember to shift their mindset to thinking of Canada as simply the location rather than the nationality. In the post-Black Friday online poker landscape, Canada has emerged as one of the major landing spots for many American poker expats who decided to pick up and relocate in order to stay on the grind. So with that in mind, we take a closer look at the PocketFives.com Top 10 ranked poker players who spend their online time inside the Great White North. Currently sitting atop the Canadian rankings is Toronto, Ontario's Chris 'Apotheosis' Kruk (6,535.77 PLB points). The online crusher and Run It Once instructor had a monster September finding himself super deep in many of the biggest buy-in tournaments (WCOOP, Powerfest, XL Eclipse) the month had to offer. Racking up 24 major cashes, seven of which were of the five-figure variety, Kruk not only finds himself as the #1-ranked Canadian, but now sits at #22 in the world. Just behind Kruk and ready to make a run at the top spot is high-stakes phenom Connor 'blanconegro' Drinan (6,273.72). Sitting in second, trailing by 262.05 points, Drinan is making moves to ascend in the ranking thanks to his October grind. While Kruk has yet to post many results yet this month, Drinan, who hails from Illinois but plays in Vancouver, has been piling up the points by grinding out large Sunday schedules through the first part of October. New York resident, playing out of Ontario, Doug 'OU_dlanger610' Lang (6,181.39) occupies the #3 spot. Lang, currently sitting at #30 in the Worldwide rankings, was a workhorse in September. Seemingly playing every event on the 888poker and PokerStars schedules resulted in 90 cashes for the month, highlighted by his final table finish in the WCOOP Event #82-L ($530 No Limit Hold'em High Roller) for over $13,000. Toronto's Sam 'Pudge714' Greenwood (6,138.82) is next on the leaderboard. The World Series of Poker bracelet winner packed on the PLB points in September but it was his fifth place finish in the $25,000 buy-in Powerfest Championship Event, for nearly $250,000, that currently accounts as his biggest score for the sliding PLB period. Troy 'iamthedeck ftw' Quenneville (6061.87), Windsor, Ontario's #1-ranked player caps off the top five in Canada. A true grinder, Quenneville has been putting up a myriad of results on a daily basis. His volume has him constantly chipping away at the top spot as well as closing in on $4.5 million in lifetime earnings. A nearly 900-point gap separates the top five from the rest of the pack. Joel 'jbrown8777' Brown, a former top five Worldwide ranked player, occupies the #6 spot while Austin, Texas online poker legend and three-time Triple Crown award winner, Jonathan 'apestyles' Van Fleet, is slotted in #7. Montreal's top player, 'Trans4m', recently took down the PokerStars $22 Mini Sunday Supersonic for over $11,000, good for his highest point total of the period (284.92) and the #8 position. 'Trans4m' sits just inside the Top 100 in the Worldwide Rankings. Former #1-ranked Worldwide player, Sebastian 'p0cket00' Sikorski, continued to add to his over $10,000,000 in lifetime earnings by finishing in the money over 100 times in September and just ahead of Ryan 'newguy89' McEathron, who completes the current Canadian top 10 list. Sitting only 10 points behind Sikorski, McEatheron recently padded his point total with a recent outright victory in the prestigious PokerStars $1,050 Super Tuesday for nearly $60,000.
