(Will OC photo)[/caption] Yong ‘ykwon17’ Kwon reclaimed his place at #1 in the New Jersey Online Poker Rankings in July, maintaining his hold over David ‘dehhhhh’ Coleman for the second straight month. Kwon’s volume was down in August but he managed to collect a first, second, and third place finish with a $5,650 cash in the $50,000 guaranteed PokerStarsNJ Sunday Special marking his best result. Coleman finished the past month with seven victories, including a win in the PokerStarsNJ Super Tuesday. Additionally, Coleman crossed over the $700,000 mark in career online earnings. Coming into September, less than 70 PLB points separate Kwon and Coleman with a gap of 400 points standing between Coleman and #3 Daniel ‘centrfieldr’ Lupo. Lupo moved up from #5 in August by virtue of his five wins during the month. On August 20, Lupo won the Sunday Special for $10,225 and moved his career online earnings over $1,000,000 as a result. Holding steady at #4 is John ‘Selurznug’ Cosgrove, who put in maximum volume over the course of August and finished the month with 11 victories. Mike ‘Lav519’ Lavenburg went from #3 to #5 but made up for his fall with a major live score. Lavenburg finished second in the Parx Big Stax 1500 in a three-way deal and earned $90,000 for his performance. Former NJ #1 Jeremy ‘Jermz’ Danger comes in at sixth place with his online earnings all the way up to $1,350,000, keeping him as the all-time highest earner in the history of NJ online poker. Josh ‘thejberg’ Rothberg cashed only four times in August but managed to hang inside the top-10 at #7. The two newcomers to the rankings this month are Daniel ‘RedsoxNets5’ Sewnig at #8 and Andrew ‘Mergulas’ Glauberg in 10th position. After falling out of the rankings, Fred ‘BiggDaddy’ Ferrell is back in at #9.

[caption width="640"] Yong 'ykwon17' Kwon is back to #1 in New Jersey following a peak-performance NJCOOP. (Will OC photo)[/caption] Two major series played out in New Jersey in October, leading to major shifts within the New Jersey Online Poker Rankings. The battle for #1 in the state continues to be feisty with Yong ‘ykwon17’ Kwon usurping David ‘dehhhhh’ Coleman for this month. Kwon had a stellar series during PokerStars NJCOOP and walked away with an astounding 21 cashes from the 46 events on the schedule. The largest of those scores came in Event #27 ($300 Four Max) where Kwon took first place and $15,462. The win also marks the largest cash of Kwon’s online career. Coleman earned nine cashes during NJCOOP and made two final tables. Overall, Coleman’s October featured eight wins and his career online earnings are over $800,000 as a result. #3-ranked Daniel ‘centrfieldr’ Lupo ended his October in style by winning the $40,000 guaranteed Ultimate Warrior on 888poker for $11,200. Overall, Lupo won nine tournaments including two NJCOOP victories. Michael ‘Gags30’ Gagliano climbed up from six to four with seven wins during the month. Gagliano made sure to make his victories as profitable as possible as the smallest first place amount he ended up with was $3,280 in the NJCOOP $10,000 guaranteed Bubble Rush event. Going from four to five is John ‘Selurznug’ Cosgrove. NJCOOP was bittersweet for Cosgrove as he finished second twice in the same night. The $25 rebuy and $20,000 guaranteed Win The Button event combined to ship him $6,600. At #6 is Jeremy ‘Jermz’ Danger, who found himself another productive month with 11 gold medals and two NJCOOP wins. Following up in the seven-hole is Freddy ‘BiggDaddy’ Ferrell. This month, Ferrell became the third player in NJ history to reach the $1,000,000 mark in career earnings. Ferrell joins Danger and Kwon as the most lucrative trio in the state’s history. Dropping from #5 to #8 is Mike ‘Lav519’ Lavenburg, who did not record a single cash during October. It will be interesting to see what November holds for him. Coming back into the top-10 after some time out is Keith ‘donnysack’ Donovan. The rise of Donovan back among the upper echelon of New Jersey comes following an October that resulted in three wins. One of those wins came in the NJCOOP Limit Hold’em event, earning Donovan $4,156. The final member of this month’s rankings is Matt ‘papamat25’ Iles, who picked up a win in the PokerStarsNJ $12,000 guaranteed Nightly event to close out his month.
