  2. [caption width="640"] Swedish players took the top three spots in the February Monthly Leaderboard[/caption] For the third consecutive month, and fourth time in five months, a Swedish player topped the PocketFives Monthly Leaderboard. ‘C Darwin2’ piled up 3,540.45 in the shortest month to win the Monthly PocketFives Leaderboard for the second time this year. Three finishes worth more than 500 PLB points each were the key to victory for ‘C Darwin2’ this month. The first came on February 6 when he finished third in the partypoker PowerFest Super High Roller for $123,963 and 531.32 points. He followed that up three days later with a win in the PokerStars $1,050 buy-in Thursday Thrill that earned him $45,206 and 504.98. The biggest score however came three days later when he won the PokerStars Sunday Warm-Up for $56,056 and 609.92 points. Of the 20 cashes that counted toward his February total, eight were top three finishes and 17 were final tables. On top of the big three finishes, ‘C Darwin2’ also won the PokerStars Hot $55 on February 15 and the partypoker High Roller on February 21. All told, ‘C Darwin2’ cashed 52 times, earning $318,669. That wasn’t exactly the end of the domination from the Swedish online poker community, though. Fellow Swedes ‘lena900’ and ‘Ariados’ finished second and third respectively. After winning the January Monthly PLB, ‘lena900’ posted the second best score in February. He ended up just 324.69 behind ‘C Darwin2’ thanks to a PokerStars Sunday Grand (NLHE) for $58,319/556.78, a PokerStars Big $109 win for $25,449/410.12 and a partypoker High Roller win for $138,75/235.58. The former #1-ranked player in the world cashed 90 times in February, earning $215,999. Rounding out the top three, ‘Ariados’ got the bulk of his points from one massive score. Beating out 210 other players in the $5,200 buy-in partypoker Powerfest Super High Roller for $226,825 and 1,127.13 points - nearly 35% of his total. He also won a PokerStars $109 Sunday Cooldown, a Winamax Highroller and a PokerStars.fr Nightly.

  3. It probably won't come as a surprise to anybody who's been paying attention, but the March PocketFives Leaderboard was dominated by the #1-ranked player in the world: Sweden’s ‘C Darwin2’. The online legend marked March as one of the biggest months in his entire career by earning a career-high score of over $267,000 with a victory in Event #7 of the PokerStars High Rollers Series. The major win also brought him a heaping 1,104.54 PLB points. While many players who are lucky enough to win six-figures in a single tournament will do so once in a career, ‘C Darwin2’ managed to do that twice in the month. He also banked over $161,000 by finishing runner-up in Event #70 of the PokerStars Turbo Series which helped him pile on another 687.22 PLB points. His total earnings for the month propelled him to over $8.9 million in lifetime earnings. In total, ‘C Darwin2’ out scored the entire field by no less than 1,610 PLB points and it came in a 31 day period he’s sure to remember. Malta’s Pim ‘joppiesaus’ de Goede lands in the #2 ranking for March with a majority of his earned PLB points coming from his victory in the PokerStars $1M GTD Twin Turbos Main Event. The $50 buy-in brought him over $143,000 and 1,194.24 PLB points. Like ‘C Darwin2’, de Goede’s major victory also marked a career-high score for the grinder. His massive March helped de Goede step into the Worldwide Top 25. When you win the PokerStars Sunday Million, good things are going to happen. That’s how Canadian ‘GINS FINEST’ found himself shooting up the Worldwide Rankings (currently sitting at #15) and landing in the #3 PLB rankings in the month of March. ‘GINS FINEST’ won over $161,000 for taking down the March 18 edition of the Sunday Million and in total notched 16 qualified PLB scores during the period. He also paired his Sunday Millions victory with a win in Event #5 of the PokerStars High Rollers Series for an additional $65,625. In total, ‘GINS FINEST’ finished March with six scores of five-figures or better. Coming in at #4 in March is Lithuania’s top ranked pro, ‘dartazzzz’. His month was highlighted by a runner-up finish in the partypoker Super Sunday Big Bounty for just over $71,000 and 509.76 PLB points. In total, ‘dartazzzz’ accumulated up 31 four-figure or greater scores with 14 qualifying PLB cashes. 2017 WCOOP Main Event Winner Steven ‘SvZff’ van Zadelhoff returned from a trip to the Aussie Millions to get back on the online grind and ended up with the #5 rank for March. Consistency and determination was key for van Zadelhoff who put in so much volume that he recorded no fewer than 270 cashes in the month of March. van Zadelhoff currently sits less than $30,000 away from $8 million in lifetime earnings. The Worldwide #2-ranked ‘lena900’ was ranked #6 for March, helped by eight scores that qualified for PLB points including winning a $16,000 package to the partypoker MILLIONS Grand Final in Barcelona. Former Worldwide #1-ranked Fabrizio ‘SixthSenSe19’ Gonzalez takes the #7 spot while the #8-ranked Ramiro ‘Ramiro’ Petrone also had a career-high score of $282,436 and 1,086.29 PLB points when he won one of the PokerStars Turbo Series Twin Main Events. The top 10 for March is wrapped up with Guntis ‘lovefee’ Aleskins finishing the month in ninth. The #12-ranked player in the world got March off to a hot start by winning the partypoker Smooth Saturday Main Event for $26,531.88 and 325.58 PLB points. Capping off the top 10 is the UK’s Conor ‘1_conor_b_1’ Beresford who made the most of March by earning himself six five-figure scores.

  4. He's in the worldwide top-10 and for the month of July, Jonathan 'proudflop' Proudfoot is the king of the PLB points mountain. The Brit was the only player to top the 3,000 point mark on his way to claiming the title. Following Proudfoot is the usual group of Swedish and Russian characters with a few surprises thrown in. Proudfoot gained control of the PLB title thanks to a few major wins. Sundays were kind to Proudfoot on partypoker and PokerStars. On July 29, Proudfoot effectively closed out his month by winning the PokerStars Sunday 500 for $27,938 accompanied by 382.75 points. That point total accounts for the largest percentage of Proudfoot's monthly total of 3,216.30. Proudfoot had his say in June, as well, and improved from sixth in PLB to July's top spot. In second place by almost 500 points on the back of Proudfoot is Denmark's Jonas 'Palsgaard1' Christensen. The #1 ranked Danish player and 35th overall worldwide did the majority of his damage in one event. Christensen took second place in the July 8 Sunday Million and earned 714.24 PLB points along with a career-high online score of $111,045. Right behind Christensen is Russian rankings regular 'papan9_p$.' They finished July with another productive month that included eight wins with a triumph across PokerStars, partypoker, and 888poker. The last Sunday of July was the cherry on their month. A win in the partypoker Super Sunday 6-Max Bounty Hunter High Roller came with $23,204 in nuts and 302.03 worth of sprinkles. The group of Swedes are in the fourth and seventh positions. 'lena900' stands just off the podium and is joined by June PLB winner 'C Darwin2' three spots behind. Sweden remains the king of the jungle as 'lena900' leads the Worldwide Rankings with 'C Darwin2' in second. 'lena900' captured four wins with the best of the bunch coming on July 1. The PokerStars Hotter $109 ended with 'lena900' holding the trophy and $14,245 grand prize. The crowning July triumph for 'C Darwin2' was a silver medal in partypoker's Sunday Big Bounty Hunter High Roller. 'C Darwin2' notched 279.42 points for the result. Second on the Ukraine charts and fifth in PLB is 'Palyaaa.' They put together another top-10 month after taking third in the June PLB rankings. As a result of the strong consecutive campaigns, 'Palyaaa' is up to a career-best Worldwide Ranking of 17th. Current Worldwide top-10 member and former #1 Fabrizio 'SixthSenSe19' Gonzalez lodges in the sixth position. Gonzalez spent all of July recording results on partypoker and 888poker which resulted in six wins. Two more Russians reside in the top-10 to close out the bottom of the third of the July PLB rankings. 'kot_spartac' is in the eighth spot and Worldwide #3 'hellohellohello' dwells in 10th. 'kot_spartac' emerged with three wins in July in only two full weeks of action after ostensibly taking some time off to play live poker. 'hellohellohello' became the 37th player in PocketFives history to cross the $7 million mark in career tournament earnings. Their largest score of the monthly session was on PokerStars. The $2,100 Sunday High Roller winner's circle came lined with 316.23 points and $38,215. Doug 'OU_dlanger610' Lang is in the nine-hole. Lang put in a metric ton of volume in July and came away with five gold medal to show for his efforts. Officially around the corner on the second half of the year, Lang is ranked 50th in the world and fourth in his native Canada. A month after David 'bewater' Goodman hit the top-10 in June's PLB, fellow American Daniel 'centrfieldr' Lupo almost duplicated the feat. New Jersey's Lupo finished 16th in the July PLB rankings, only 145 points outside of 10th.

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