  1. For the tenth time in his storied career, Sweden’s ‘Lena900’ has captured a PocketFives Monthly PLB award. ‘Lena900’, the current #1-ranked player in the world, continues to make the case for being named the greatest online poker player of all time. This time he secured the Monthly PLB title for February after posting 120 cashes which resulted in over $486,000 in earnings. A regular grinder in the biggest stakes MTTs offered, ‘Lena900’ boasted 15 five-figure cashes in the month with 10 outright wins. His spotlight score of the month came in Event 89 of the PokerStars Bounty Builder Series ($5,200 NLHE 8-Max High Roller) where he finished as the runner-up booking a $65,634 score plus 391.71 PLB points. He also picked up heaps of PLB points by taking down Event 53 of the same series, outlasting the 183 entries of the $2,100 NLHE 8-Max Thursday Thrill for $32,235 and 427.78 PLB points. [ptable zone=“Global Poker Article Ad”][ptable zone=“GG Poker”][ptable zone=“Borgata Poker”] In the second half of the month, he picked up large scores playing on partypoker as well. He took down the February 23 edition of the KO Super Sunday 6-Max PLO for $41,928. Two days later he finished in first again on partypoker by winning the High Roller Master $50K for another $20,475. Although ’Lena900’ only had seven PLB-qualifying cashes, they were all such significant scores that it allowed him to win the month by 220 points with a total of 3,194. Not only is ‘Lena900’ the top-ranked player in the world, he is also the current leader of the All-Time Online Money List having just surpassed $18.6 million in earnings. Juanki ‘B4NKR0LL3R’ Vecino (2974 PLB points) nearly caught up with ‘Lena900’ in February thanks to a resume-topping victory in the PokerStars $109 Sunday Million on February 2. [ptable zone="Global Poker Article Ad"][ptable zone="888poker"][ptable zone="PokerStars NJ"] Vecino outlasted the 9,851 entries in one of the most prestigious tournaments on the weekly schedule to earn himself his first six-figure score of $105,729 as well as an even 1000.00 PLB points. He used that massive boost to his bankroll to grind the rest of the month, posting 118 cashes and earning a total of $209,294. His heater continues the next day when he finished as the runner-up in the PokerStars $215 Monday 6-Max for another $11,863 and 204.20 PLB points. Then, just two weeks later, Vecino picked up the fifth-largest cash of his career by taking down Event 177 of the PokerStars Bounty Builder Series ($2,100 NLHE) for $41,250, capping off a career-month for the UK grinder. His February success helped him climb to more than $1.5 million in total career earnings and hit a career-high ranking of #20 in the world. The current #2-ranked player in the world Johannes ‘Greenstone25’ Korsar (2,905 PLB points) finished in third place in the February PLB race in a month where he added more than $325,000 to his over $14 million in career earnings. Of his 118 cashes, 46 were good for four-figures or more with nine of those being for five-figures. He racked up big-time PLB points with a pair of victories in the partypoker KO Series. First, he took down Event 23 ($100K High Roller) on February 6 for $20,389 plus 324.92 PLB points. Then just days later on February 11 he picked up the gold medal in Event 44 for a monthly high cash of $41,376 and 459.51. partypoker ambassador Patrick ‘pleno1’ Leonard (2,639 PLB points) finished in fourth place. The current #10-ranked player in the world picked up a partypoker KO Series title of his own by taking down Event 48 High Roller on February 12 for $24,117 and 336.54. He also had a big day on February 23 when he binked back-to-back five-figure cashes. The first came in a runner-up finish in the PokerStars Bigger $109 for $13,330 and at the same time, he has a final table finish in the PokerStars High Roller Club $1,050 Sunday Warm-up for another $10,852. Finishing in fifth for February was another partypoker ambassador, Anatoly ‘nl_profit’ Filatov (2,398 PLB points). Filatov had an impressive 18 PLB-qualified cashes including a victory in the February 10 edition of the partypoker High Roller Bounty Hunter for $5,816 and 277.96 PLB points. Filatov finished the month with 13 podium appearances and six five-figure cashes highlighted by his victory in the February 16 edition of the PokerStars High Roller Club $2,100 Sunday High Roller for $37,966.

  2. For the third straight week, Canada's p0cket00(pictured) sits atop the PocketFives Poker Rankings, this time with a PLB score of 7,758 points. He holds a razor-thin 18-point lead over second place, but is enjoying his second stint in the top spot this year and his longest reign at #1 since late 2011. p0cket00 won the 888 Poker Whale last month for $52,000, his 10th largest score to date. Here's a look at his largest cashes all-time: 1st Place: bwin Grand Tournament XXXII, 12/28/2008, $213,000 1st Place: PokerStars Super Tuesday, 5/27/2014, $106,210 5th Place: PokerStars SCOOP $2,100 NLHE, 5/19/2013, $105,638 1st Place: PokerStars Super Tuesday, 1/4/2011, $91,344 4th Place: PartyPoker Monthly Million, 5/2/2010, $88,607 1st Place: PokerStars WCOOP Second Chance $109 Rebuy, 9/3/2012, $66,978 2nd Place: PokerStars Super Tuesday, 5/1/2012, $64,980 12th Place: PokerStars SCOOP Main Event, 5/22/2011, $57,000 8th Place: PokerStars WCOOP Challenge Main Event, 8/3/2014, $56,962 1st Place: 888 Poker Whale, 11/16/2014, $52,390 For the third straight week, we had no new entrants in the top 10 worldwide of the Rankings and no one moved more than two spots in any direction within that group. The only notable change was by r4ndomr4gs, who moved up from #10 to #8 after winning the Full TiltSaturday Six-Max and PokerStars $109 Rebuy over the weekend for a combined $15,000. Knocking on the door of the top 10 and sitting at #12 worldwide, up 12 spots this week, is Sweden's Liinda14(pictured). She won a PokerStars Carnival event on Sunday for $23,000 and is $67,000 shy of hitting $3 million in scores for her career. You can find her on PokerStars under the user name nicelife. Also sitting just outside the top 10 is MendaLerenda, who moved up 18 places to #15 thanks to a win in a $109 No Limit Hold'em tournament on PokerStars and a second place finish in a $215 No Limit Hold'em tournament on the same site for $25,000 total. Like Liinda14, MendaLerenda is at his highest spot ever in the PocketFives Rankings. Finally, we wanted to talk about Canada's David Davidp18 Peters, who moved up 10 spots to #21. He recorded 14 in the money finishes over the weekend for $10,000 total and then won a $109 No Limit Hold'em Turbo on PokerStars on Monday for $7,900. Peters stands at $4.3 million in tracked online MTT scores for his career and reached an all-time high of #18 in the Rankings earlier this year.

  3. We had two new entrants this week into the top 10 of the PocketFives Rankings, which were recalculated on Wednesday. We'll start with one of the biggest advancers inside the top 100, Aaron aguskb Gustavson (pictured), who shot up 22 spots from #29 to #7. This is his highest position ever in the Rankings. Gustavson has $3.6 million in career online tournament winnings and has torn up the online poker felts so far in July. On the 5th, he finished second in the PokerStarsBigger $162 and $109 Cubed for $33,000 total and followed that up with wins in the Full Tilt Five-O and PokerStars Hot $44. He's the top-ranked player from Mexico. Then there was Austria's mindgamer, who returned to the top 10 after a brief hiatus and sits at #10 in the world. The Vienna resident was ranked #1 on our site two years ago and won the Full Tilt Big Ben on the last day of May for $10,000, but has not recorded an in the money score since. Outside the top 10, Romania's tilt21sted(pictured) moved up 27 spots to settle at #33. He just earned his $2 million cash badgeand won the Full Tilt Sunday Major last month for $31,000. He's the #2 ranked player in Romania and plays on PokerStars under the pseudonym steakaddict. Korea's Ryan urbanlights Yu reentered the top 100 at #60 this week thanks to a blockbuster last 10 days during which he final tabled the Super Tuesday for $23,000 and finished fourth in the Thursday Thrill for $16,000. This is the highest Yu has ever been ranked on PocketFives. Russia's Ravic85reentered the top 100 at #94 in the world thanks in part to a win in the 888 Poker Volcano last month for $21,000. He has almost $200,000 in winnings on 888 Pokeralone, where he plays under the user name MetelitsaPro. He was ranked as high as #69 in the world earlier this year. Finally this week, we wanted to point out that Chile's Nico PokerKaiserFierro is entering his 10th week as our #1 ranked player. It's the longest streak by anyone since a 22-week run by Calvin cal42688 Anderson that ended in early 2013. Fierro has 7,466 PLB Points, about 350 more than the second place player: 1. PokerKaiser- 7,466 points 2. hellohellohello - 7,099 points 3. bedias - 6,851 points 4. AnteSvante - 6,676 points 5. Legenden - 6,578 points 6. prebzzz - 6,567 points 7. aguskb- 6,556 points 8.

  4. The reign of Griffin Flush_EntityBenger at the top of the PocketFives Rankingslasted one week, as Lukas lukethaflukeBerglund (pictured) made it to #1 on Wednesday. It's Berglund's third time being the top dog on PocketFives and his first since March. The Swedish player was helped by a win in the Full Tilt Poker Sunday Brawl over the weekend for almost $50,000 and nearly 500 PLB Points. One day prior to winning the Sunday Brawl, Berglund emerged victorious from the pack in a PokerStars $215 Weekly Six-Max tournament for $20,000 and 326 PLB Points. So far in May, a month that's only three weeks old, Berglund has amassed $223,000 from 85 tracked online MTT scores, an average of $2,600 each. Benger, meanwhile, didn't fall very far, landing in third place. Joining Berglund and Benger in the top 10 are three new entrants this week, as tournaments during SCOOP have stirred the pot quite a bit. Patrick pleno1 Leonard (pictured) was among the newcomers, hopping from #23 to #6 after logging a half-dozen five-figure scores this month, three of which came from SCOOP events. Leonard is #1 in the UK. One of the largest jumps inside the top 100 went to Toby 810ofclubs Lewis, who moved from #42 to #7, or 35 spots, after he finished second in a SCOOP $1,050 No Limit Hold'em Wrap-Up event on Sunday for $214,000 officially and nearly 900 PLB Points. It was Lewis' second largest tracked score to date, trailing a quarter-of-a-million dollar haul in an FTOPS jersey bid in 2013. Vinkyy, who was #1 on our site last year, reappeared in the top 10 this week after being ranked #28 last week. Vinkyy earned nearly 1,000 PLB Points after a second place finish in a SCOOP $2,100 No Limit Hold'em Eight-Max event over the weekend, a cash that has inched him within $150,000 of $6 million in career online scores. Malta's lasagnaaammm entered the top 100 this week at #31 worldwide after a SCOOP victory last week in a $2,100 No Limit Hold'em Turbo Re-Entry tournament for almost $400,000 officially and 1,447 PLB Points. It was his third tracked score of over $200,000 and he'll look to improve on his all-time high ranking of #9, set earlier this year. Finally, we wanted to talk about Brazil's Marco Amtozza Tozzatto (pictured), who moved up 36 spots to #42 worldwide. He finished second in the SCOOP Super Tuesday eight days ago for $191,000 and 826 PLB Points and is the top-ranked player in the South American nation.

  6. Over the last weekend of August, Russia's MAMOHT_T(pictured) came away with the victory in the 888 Poker Mega Deep. Defeating a field of 681 entrants meant a $32,000 payday, as he defeated fellow PocketFiver Grind24seven heads-up. In part as a result of his recent performance, MAMOHT_T has found his way into the top five of the PocketFives Online Poker Rankings, settling in at #5 in the world, and just lapped $4.6 million in online tournament winnings. We caught up with the top-ranked Russian to talk about his latest claim to fame. PocketFives: Nice job on the 888 Mega Deep win. How are you feeling about it? MAMOHT_T: I feel great and very happy, of course. PocketFives: Can you walk us through how the tournament went in general for you and give us your thoughts on its structure, field, and buy-in? MAMOHT_T: The tournament went pretty calmly for me. Until there were 40 or 50 players left, I managed to gradually increase my stack – nothing really special. Starting when there were 40 opponents, the field began to play more aggressively and I had to fight back. When there were six players left, I became the chip leader and remained at the top until the end, busting one opponent after another. The tournament is very good. It has a very good and smooth structure and the buy-in is also okay for its structure. PocketFives: You've had several five-figure scores this year, including a win in the Full Tilt $250,000 Guaranteed. Tell us about what has been going right for you this year and why. MAMOHT_T: I play a lot, try hard in every tournament, and sometimes get lucky. The result is victories and it's awesome when a victory comes with a five-figure score. PocketFives: Do you have any plans for the money? What have you used your poker winnings for this year? MAMOHT_T: Nothing special. I live for fun, go on holidays with my wife, and help my parents. I am thinking about getting a good car this year. PocketFives: Speaking of this year, what goals do you have poker-wise for the rest of 2014? MAMOHT_T: I would like to win one or two events during the WCOOP and then go to an EPT stop, as I really want and like to play offline, although I do so rarely. PocketFives: What do you do besides poker? What else interests you? MAMOHT_T: Poker takes up a lot of my time, so I don't have a lot of time to spend on other interests. I love to travel to visit interesting places in other countries, play Dota2 periodically, and the rest of my time is given to my wife, friends, and parents.

  7. There was a major shakeup in the PocketFives Rankingsthis week thanks to thousands of PLB Points being awarded during the final weekend of the PokerStarsSpring Championship of Online Poker. However, if you're a fan of Nicolas PokerKaiser Fierro (pictured), you can breathe a sigh of relief, as he's still our top-ranked player at 7,817 PLB Points. Second place this week belongs to Mustapha lasagnaaammmKanit, who won the high-stakes SCOOP Main Eventfor $1.3 million. Kanit was outside of the top 100 in the Rankings when the week began, but received 2,634 PLB Points for his efforts in the Main Event. Kanit fittingly won the FTOPS Main Eventfor $239,000 in March and took down the EPT Monte Carlo Super High Roller earlier in May for $1 million. Yes, he's on fire. We told you there was a major upheaval and we weren't kidding. Take Anton AnteSvante Wigg, for example, who moved up from #20 to #3 thanks to a win in the Sunday 500 over the weekend for $90,000 and 723 PLB Points. The same day, he made the final two tables of a SCOOP Wrap-Up event for $10,000 and final tabled a SCOOP event the day before for the same amount. This is the highest Wigg has ever been in the PocketFives Rankings. Say hello to hellohellohello (pictured), your new fourth ranked player worldwide. The Russian moved up 24 spots this week to his highest position ever thanks to four wins in the last seven days as well as a final table in the high-stakes SCOOP Main Event for a solid $104,000. He has $2.1 million in career online tournament winnings. Bernardo bedias Dias moved up from #14 to #5, his highest career ranking, after winning three tournaments on PokerStars on May 21. Two days later, he final tabled a SCOOP PLO contest for $19,000. Dias is the top-ranked Brazilian PocketFiver out of almost 2,000 who have PLB scores. Greece's Apostolis Bechrakis, known on PocketFives as apostolis20, entered the top 100 worldwide at #14 this week, his best showing ever, after winning the low-stakes SCOOP Main Event for $221,000. That score was worth 1,488 PLB Points after the prize pool passed $2.2 million. Finally this week, we wanted to talk about Australia's Martin Tiny_molester Kozlov, who moved up from #90 to #17. He final tabled a SCOOP Wrap-Up event for $101,000 and cashed in the high-stakes Main Event the same day. He's a few thousand dollars shy of hitting $2 million for his career. As you can see, only one member of last week's top five, Fierro, remained in the top five this week. Both PocketFivers who won SCOOP Main Events rocketed into the top 15 in the world. Here are the top 10 players in the PocketFives Rankings this week along with the PLB score for each: 1. PokerKaiser- 7,817 points 2. lasagnaaammm(pictured) - 7,430 points 3.

  9. It took all of one week for Sweden's Lukas lukethaflukeBerglund (pictured) to reclaim his spot atop the PocketFives Online Poker Rankings. Berglund was ranked #1 for one week from May 21 to 28 until fellow Swede r4ndomr4gs took over. Now, Berglund is back on top for the fourth time. Speaking of r4ndomr4gs, he didn't fall that far, dropping to #2 worldwide and trailing Berglund by fewer than 200 PLB Points. Swedes continue to be a force atop the Rankings, as a player from Sweden has been ranked #1 for all but five weeks since Christmas. Former #1 ranked p0cket00moved up from #19 worldwide to #5 this week on the strength of a win in the PokerStarsSuper Tuesday eight days ago for $106,000 and 747 PLB Points. That score was his second largest online tournament score ever, trailing only a bwin Grand XXXII victory two World Cups ago. Another Swede, lena900, moved up from #12 to #10, his highest position ever. He final tabled an FTOPS event in 2011 for $86,000, the largest cash we've tallied for him. He has 55 tracked victories, $2.4 million in winnings online, and plays on Full Tilt Pokerunder the user name whoozz. Sweden's Ariadosrose almost 30 spots at settle at #39 on the strength of a PokerStars $215 Rebuy win on June 1 for $16,000. Last month, he won the 888 Poker Mega Deep for $30,000 one week after finishing 12th in the SCOOP Main Event for $75,000. He is at $3.7 million in tracked scores. The rest of the top 100 was pretty stagnant this week, but we saw a huge jump from GM_VALTER (pictured), who reentered the top 100 at #63. The Brazilian was ranked as high as #21 on PocketFives in 2011 and final tabled the Sunday Second Chance over the weekend for $30,000 to help his cause. The same day, he took second in the Sunday Warm-Up for another $69,000, which meant a $100,000+ Sunday on PokerStars. Also jumping into the top 100 this week was Finland's gifuhorna, who is just a few thousand dollars away from hitting $2 million lifetime. Our #77 ranked player has spread his action pretty evenly across about a half-dozen online poker sites and amassed $854,000 on PokerStars alone. He is a three-time PocketFives Triple Crown winner whose last accolade came in January. Sweden has four members of the top 10 worldwide, including the top two, while Canada has three members of the top 10: 1. lukethafluke(Sweden) - 8,314 points 2. r4ndomr4gs(Sweden) - 8,141 points 3. pleno1 (UK) - 7,684 points 4.blanconegro (Canada) - 7,503 points 5. p0cket00(Canada) - 7,496 points 6.

The Gothenburg resident moved up from #2 to #1 this week on the strength of a runner-up finish in the PokerStars Sunday 500 over the weekend for $44,000 and nearly 400 PLB Points. r4ndomr4gs has over $4 million in online MTT cashes, the largest of which was worth $174,000 and came via an ECOOP win in 2009. --- PocketFives' news coverage is brought to you by Betsafe, one of the leading suppliers of online gaming products worldwide and a major sponsor of Gumball 3000.

Three of the top four players in the PocketFives Rankings are from Sweden, which incidentally overtook Canada in the PocketFives' Country Poker Rankings for the top spot this week after briefly losing its stranglehold on #1. Austria's huiiiiiiiiii(pictured) moved up from #11 worldwide to #6. He has exactly 50 cashes already this month for a combined $47,000 and is closing in on 100 first place finishes for his career. If you're playing on Full Tilt, you can find the Austrian under the user name IneedMoneyXX. Jumping 17 spots to land at #25 was buckguy 2200, who was ranked as high as #11 earlier this year. The Playa del Carmen, Mexico poker player is about $100,000 away from $3 million in online scores and won the PokerStars Big $162 six days ago for $15,000. His largest score we've tracked came last December in a WCOOP Challenge win for $198,000. Latvia's sikosomatik moved up from #52 worldwide to #38, or 14 spots, after taking down the PokerStars.fr Sunday High Roller on June 8 and then finishing second in the PokerStars $215 Weekly Turbo four days ago for another $12,000. sikosomatik has $594,000 in online cashes and is the top-ranked player in Latvia. Debuting in the top 100 this week at #81 was Germany's nilsef, who won the PokerStars $109 No Limit Hold'em Turbo Cubed earlier this month for $10,000 and has 183 career wins. He is up to $2.7 million in online winnings and is the second-ranked player in Germany. Finally, we wanted to single out England's jenbizzle(pictured), who reached his highest position ever in the Rankings at #82. He has 47 tracked cashes this month for $37,000 total and, over his career, has taken down the PokerStars Sunday Warm-Up, Sunday Supersonic, Bigger $162, and Full Tilt $250,000 Guarantee, among other tournaments.

  11. For the second time in his career, CrownUpGuy(pictured) is the #1 ranked player on PocketFives. This time, he moved up four spots on the week thanks to a final table in the PokerStars Sunday Supersonic that was worth $15,000 and 207 PLB Points, the metric used to determine the Rankings. CrownUpGuy has had an electrifying last 11 months, winning the WCOOP Main Event for $1.8 million, the PokerStars Sunday 500 twice for $150,000 total, and the PokerStars Sunday $109 Rebuy for $54,000. He has been a mainstay of the PocketFives Rankings ever since his WCOOP Main Event win and has $2.8 million in career online tournament winnings. He was last ranked #1 in December. We could see a changing of the guard when the Rankings are recalculated next week, however, as CrownUpGuy has 7,559 PLB Points, just 17 more than PokerKaiser, who was ranked #1 last week. Also making waves this week was Canada's p0cket00 (pictured), another former #1 player on PocketFives. He won the PokerStars Super Tuesday last week for almost $100,000 officially and earned nearly 800 PLB Points. He moved up from #15 in the world on PocketFives to #8 as a result. One of the biggest jumps of the week inside the top 100 went to romdom, who moved up 40 spots to land at #18, his highest position ever. romdom took down the PokerStars Sunday Warm-Up outright over the weekend and bagged $80,000 along with 730 PLB Points. He's just a few thousand dollars shy of $3 million for his career. Finally this week, we wanted to single out Die Ventura, who shot up 42 spots to #45. He won the weekend's Sunday Supersonic and earned $53,000. He is the top-ranked PocketFiver in Peru and the #45 ranking is his best all-time.

  12. We may have a free-for-all on our hands at the top of the PocketFives Online Poker Rankings. Aaron aguskbGustavson is still #1, but his PLB score of 6,854 points is well within striking distance of a few other PocketFivers, one of whom is Fresh_Oo_D (pictured). --- Tournament Poker Edgeis the only poker training site dedicated exclusively to MTTs and features over 1,000 training videos, blogs, articles, podcasts and a dedicated strategy forum for members.

Last Wednesday, he hit $4 million in online MTT winnings and is the top-ranked PocketFiver in Austria. We had four new entrants into the top 10 this week.

His Monday consisted of winning the PokerStars $109 Cubed for $10,000 and finishing second in a WCOOP $1,050 PLO Hi-Lo event for another $41,000.

  13. For the first time since November of last year, Chile's Nico PokerKaiserFierro (pictured) is the #1 player in the PocketFives Rankings. He swapped spots with Chris Big Huni Hunichen to claim the honors and is ranked #1 for just the second time in his career and the first time since last November. Fierro won the WinamaxHigh Roller on March 2 for almost $10,000. The same day, he took down the PokerStars.fr Monday Night on Stars for $9,900. He has six wins in the last two weeks and will soon become the seventh PocketFiver ever to hit $7.5 million in online tournament scores. London's Vicente Delgado Zamorano, aka vicenfish, reentered the top 10 this week and can be found at #9. He took second in the Big $55 late last month for $11,000 and final tabled the Bigger $152 earlier in the month for about the same amount. Working against him is the fact that he hasn't won an MTT since November, but he has more than enough volume to make up for it. Zackattak13rose 21 spots this week to land at #16, seven places off his all-time high set in 2011. He won a $109 Turbo on PokerStars on Tuesday for $10,000 and captured the "W" in the Super Sized Sunday on Full Tilt over the weekend for $16,000.

  14. After an impressive 16-week run by Nico PokerKaiserFierro (pictured) at the top of the PocketFives Rankingsended on August 26, we now have our second straight week with a new #1. This time, it's Canada's StrungOut1, who reentered his screen names and instantly vaulted to the top. --- Tournament Poker Edgeis the only poker training site dedicated exclusively to MTTs and features over 1,000 training videos, blogs, articles, podcasts and a dedicated strategy forum for members. Check Tournament Poker Edge out on Twitter. --- StrungOut1 has 201 tracked victories in online MTTs and almost 500 top-three finishes. He had four wins in August, including a smashing $145,000 score for taking down the Sunday Million. That was worth 1,000 PLB Points and propelled him to 7,152 points overall, about 150 ahead of second place in the Rankings, which belongs to Aaron aguskb Gustavson. Gustavson (pictured) dethroned Fierro last week and currently sits at #2 worldwide. He is approaching $4 million in career scores online and has another $1.5 million in the live arena. His third largest score ever came earlier this year, a $52,000 haul for finishing as the runner-up in the PokerStars Super Tuesday. One-hundred points behind Gustavson is Fierro, so we certainly have a pretty close race at the top of the PocketFives Rankings. Fierro won the 888Mega Deep twice earlier this year for almost $70,000 total and continues to pace the Chile poker community. A familiar face in the Rankings, r4ndomr4gs, aka Andreas Berggren, moved up from #12 to #6 this week. He was ranked #1 on PocketFives last year and is a few days removed from winning the PokerStars.fr Summer Special for $21,000. He final tabled the PokerStars Sunday $109 Rebuy last month and continues to be a staple of major final tables. Cracking the top 10 for the first time in his career is Sergio EV4dGloryOMC Garcia, who calls Ireland home and moved up three spots from #13 to #10. He is $6,000 shy of hitting $1 million in online MTT cashes and won the PokerStars $109 Rebuy last month for $10,000. He is the top-ranked player in Ireland out of 628 with PLB scores. Here are the top 10 players in the Rankings this week along with the PLB score for each: 1. StrungOut1- 7,152 points 2. aguskb- 7,104 points 3.

  15. [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
  16. [caption width="653"] The top five of the PocketFives Rankings this week[/caption] Sweden's 'C Darwin2' has a chokehold on the top spot in the PocketFives Rankings. He's been #1 since February 10, but there are several talented players nipping at his heels. Take Vancouver's Joel 'jbrown8777' Brown, for example, who moved up five spots in the rankings this week to settle at #5, two spots off his all-time high. Brown won a PartyPoker Powerfest tournament on Tuesday for $67,000 and a mammoth 635 PLB Points. That event drew a field of 808 players and had a buy-in of $530. To close out February, Brown took third in the PokerStars Sunday Second Chance for $20,000 and is closing in on $4 million in online tournament winnings lifetime. He was ranked as high as #3 in the world on PocketFives last year and is the top-ranked player in Canada. [caption width="667"] Stats for 'jbrown8777'[/caption] 'jbrown8777' has 6,796 PLB Points and trails top-ranked 'C Darwin2' by 600. 'C Darwin2', from Sweden, hasn't recorded an online MTT win since February 7, but has put up plenty of volume and plenty of results. He finished second in the PokerStars $109 Rebuy on Tuesday for $6,100 and final tabled a Powerfest event on March 7 for $10,000. 'C Darwin2' has almost 30 in the money finishes so far in March and has helped lead Swedes to the top three spots worldwide in the rankings, and five of the top nine. Over the years, 'C Darwin2' has accumulated over 2,000 in the money finishes, 130 top-three runs, and $3.7 million in online winnings. There wasn't much movement in the top 10 this week. Outside of the top 10, however, players jostled for position with gusto, as 'MiracleQ' rose 15 spots to #17, his highest ranking ever. 'MiracleQ' won the PokerStars Hot $55 on Tuesday for $9,200 and also has two victories this month in the PartyPoker Heavyweight Drago and one win in the PokerStars Hot $82. He's the #2 ranked player in Russia. 'philroyal888', from the UK, also set a personal best this week, moving up 16 spots from #54 to #38. He won Powerfest Event #87 on PartyPoker on Monday for $45,000 and 484 PLB Points, defeating a field of 469 entrants. One day prior, he finished fourth in the 888 Baby Whale. The next top-three finish he records will be the 100th of his career. A familiar face in the rankings, Sweden's 'Sheater', was up 31 spots this week to #42. He was ranked #1 on PocketFives as recently as 2014 and has four wins already this month: the PokerStars $40,000 Guaranteed, PartyPoker High Roller, PokerStars Big $109, and PokerStars $10,000 Guaranteed. Those four have driven his career win total north of 200. The arrow of Mexico's 'Blackk' is also pointing up after he rose 28 spots this week to #50. The top-ranked player in Mexico, 'Blackk' has four wins this month, including in the 888 Volcano for $23,000. Two days before that, he was the runner-up in the PokerStars Sunday Second Chance. He plays as 'Biack88' on PokerStars, where he just hit $3 million in career winnings, and is the owner of five PocketFives Triple Crowns. Noah 'dirtybrasil' Vaillancourt hit #67 in the rankings this week, 22 spots higher than last week. He's now 26 slots shy of his all-time high and took fifth in the FTOPS Main Event over the weekend for $17,000. Over the first weekend of March, he final tabled the Sunday Million, so he'll look to three-peat in this weekend's Sunday Majors. Hungary's 'breeth' returned to the top 100 this week at #78 thanks in part to a final table in the PokerStars Bigger $55 over the weekend for $10,000. Earlier in the month, 'breeth' won the PartyPoker High Roller for $5,000 more than that. He's the third-ranked player in Hungary and has more career online wins (115) than second and third places combined (98). [caption width="615"] Rasmus 'RasA' Agerskov Larsen reentered the top 100 at #85[/caption] Finally this week, Rasmus 'RasA' Agerskov Larsen reentered the top 100 at #85. He was ranked as high as #40 in the world last year. Larsen won the Sunday 500 in 2014 and 2015 and came within inches of another victory over the weekend, but bowed out in fourth place for $25,000.

[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.

  18. [caption width="640"] Swedish players took the top two spots on the 2016 PocketFives Yearly Leaderboard.[/caption] In one of the closest races in Leaderboard races PocketFives history, Sweden’s ‘C Darwin2’ won the PocketFives Yearly PLB, beating out ‘lena900’ by just 62.6 points. ‘C Darwin2’ finished the year with 19,198.31 PLB points - the fourth highest score for a winner. Over the course of 2016 ‘C Darwin2’ cashed 760 times and earned a whopping $1,775,691.92. His single largest cash came in May when he won the opening event of the PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker (H) for $226,106.00. That win also earned him 1,144.55 PLB points - more than double any other score he had in the year. Other highlights of the Swedish superstar's year include a win in the PokerStars Sunday Grand in July for 444,376.50 and 465.83 PLB points. He also managed two wins in the $2,600 buy-in partypoker Super High Roller for a combined $79,865.05 and 790.26 PLB points. He had 28 wins, 22 runner-ups and 19 third place finishes. Coming in second was another Swede, ‘lena900’. He put in more volume than ‘C Darwin2’ and ended up cashing 1,234 times in 2016 with $2,079.591.98 in earnings and 19,135.71 PLB points. While ‘C Darwin2’ had the marquee SCOOP win, ‘lena900’ had just two scores worth over 400 points. Instead he managed to post 33 cashes worth 200 or more points. He narrowly missed out on a massive score in September in the $10,000 buy-in PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker High Roller. He ended up finishing 11th for $64,056.86 and 447.6 PLB points. The eventual winner, Phil ’Grindation’ McAllister earned 1,886.80 for the win. In six of the last of the nine years, ‘lena900’’s total of 19,135.71 PLB points would have been good enough for him to win. Rounding out the top three was Alex ‘alexd2’ Dimitrov with 18,503.55 PLB points. Dimitrov earned $1,696,005.92 in 2016 on the back of 1,466 cashes. He won 61 events and finished second in another 51.

  19. [caption width="640"] Fabrizio 'SixthSenSe19' Gonzalez remains the #1 ranked online poker player in the world for the 12th consecutive week.[/caption] Even the best online poker players in the world took some time this past week to enjoy the holiday season and spend some time with family and friends rather than grinding away. That lead to a week with no changes at all in the top ten of the PocketFives Rankings with Fabrizio 'SixthSenSe19' Gonzalez sitting on top for the 12th straight week. Gonzalez cashed only seven times with none of them being big enough to earn him any additional PLB points. That allowed Alex 'alexd2' Dimitrov to close the gap to just 265.21 points. Two of the Bulgarian's 43 cashes last week were big enough to add to his PLB total. On December 26 he beat out 514 players to win the PokerStars $109 Six Max Hyper Turbo for $9,459 and 231.22 points. he followed that up with a fifth place finish in the PokerStars Hot $215 for $5,641/129.34. Dimitrov has been #2 for nine consecutive weeks. Former #1-ranked 'C Darwin2' sits third and also finds himself within striking distance of Gonzalez. The Swedish pro took down the partypoker Six Max Turbo High Roller on December 22 for $8,400/144.91. He's now just 518.01 points behind Gonzalez and 265.21 points behind Dimitrov. The rest of the top eight remained unchanged with Sweden's 'lena900' and Brazil's Joao Mathias 'joaomathias' Baumgarten rounding out the top five. Patrick 'pleno1' Leonard moved up from #10 to #9 thanks to three final table finishes. The first came on December 22 when he finished runner-up to Chris 'imdanuts' Oliver in the $1,050 Thursday Thrill for $31,026 and 319.49 points. On Christmas Day he finished runner-up in the PokerStars Sunday Supersonic for $18,077/268.19 and then fifth in the 888 poker $50,000 WHALE for $4,475/101.34. The biggest mover though was former #1Conor '1_conor_b_1' Beresford. The British pro jumped from #16 to #10 after he won the PokerStars Sunday Warm-Up for $43,217 and 527.07 points - his highest points score ever.

  21. In the illustrious history of the PocketFives Rankings, 55 different players have managed to hold down the #1 spot. This edition of the RANK & FILE focuses on how those players did during the 2018 World Series of Poker. Paul Volpe First #1 to Grab Hardware in 2018 Paul 'paulgees81' Volpe started off his 2018 WSOP in strong fashion. He finished third in the $10,000 Super Turbo Bounty, then 15th in the $100,000 High Roller and then everything came together for him in the $10,000 Omaha 8-or-better Championship, where he outlasted 168 other players to win his third career bracelet. He is the only former #1-ranked player to have won that many. He then picked up his fourth cash of the year on Monday, finishing 15th in the $10,000 No Limit Deuce to Seven event. All told, Volpe has earned $757,185 this summer, the most of any former #1-ranked player. Shaun Deeb Continues Cashing While Volpe is the only one to win a bracelet so far, Shaun Deeb continues to earn visits to the payout desk. Deeb has picked up six cashes so far, two more than Volpe, for $59,808. While most of his results have been on the smaller side, he did come close to winning a bracelet in the $1,500 No Limit Deuce to Seven event. Deeb made the final table, only to finish third for $36,330. Here's a closer look at all of Deeb's cashes for 2018 to date: EVENT POSITION WINNINGS $1,500 Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better 44th $4,723 COLOSSUS - $565 No-Limit Hold'em 1,418th $920 $2,500 Mixed Triple Draw Lowball 37th $3,937 Big Blind Antes $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em 16th $11,553 $1,500 No-Limit 2-7 Lowball Draw 3rd $36,330 $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em MILLIONAIRE MAKER 965th $2,345 Deeb still has some work to do to match or beat his 2017 performance which saw him pick up 10 cashes. Fedor Holz Makes the Most of His One Event After winning his first WSOP in 2016, Fedor Holz told the poker world he was retiring from poker but would still play, just at a reduced schedule. Despite this, he's continued to play the biggest events on the calendar while skipping anything that's not a high roller. Holz played the $100,000 High Roller in the opening days of the 2018 WSOP and finished ninth for $240,265. He then took to Instagram to let people know he was headed back to Austria and won't be back in Vegas until after the Main Event. The ninth place finish marks his first WSOP cash since beating Dan Smith heads-up to win the $111,111 One Drop High Roller in 2016. Chris Moorman Only Other Former #1 to Cash Three Times Chris Moorman, who won his first bracelet last summer, is the only other former #1-ranked player to pick up at least three cashes so far this year. He won his first round match-up in the $3,000 No Limit Hold'em but couldn't win the second and ended up finishing 17th for $6,302. He followed that up by cashing in the Colossus for $1,118 and then came 191st in the $1,500 Millionaire Maker for $6,654. By The Numbers As a group, the former #1s have picked up 28 total cashes for $1,119,033 in earnings so far.
  22. Every month The PocketFives Milestone Report looks at the online poker players who are achieving career-best achievement or reaching new heights in the rankings. World’s #1 Has More Reason to Celebrate Swedish superstar ‘lena900’ has been the #1-ranked player in the world since May 19 and now he’s got something else to celebrate. Thanks to an 11th place finish in a PokerStars $109 buy-in event on June 10, ‘lena900’ became the seventh player to surpass the $11,000,000 mark in online tournament earnings. The other players in that group are Chris Moorman, Sebastian Sikorski, Nicolas Fierro, Johannes Korsar, Chris Hunichen and Bryan Paris. ‘Lena900’ has now spent a total of 26 weeks on top of the PocketFives Rankings over the course of nine separate reigns. Canadian ‘CzarBushov’ Passes $4 Million Mark There was a time when ‘lena900’ breezed past the $4 million earnings mark. That might seem like a lifetime ago to him, but this month ‘CzarBushov’ picked up $2,042 in the partypoker KO Series to become the 193rd player to hit that mark. He has done it the hard way too, averaging $492 per cash over the course of his career. He’s never had a six-figure score, coming closest all the way back in 2010 when he finished runner-up in the PokerStars Sunday Warm-Up for $98,955. He’s now the #23-ranked player in Canada. Four players managed to break into the seven-figure club this past month: 'RipCheader', 'Alexmfnb', 'GoFighter', and 'tiltinha'. Pedro ‘PaDiLhA SP’ Padilha Finds Single Digit Ranking Brazilian players have quite the history with the PocketFives Rankings. The latest phenom to make a valiant attempt at top spot is Pedro ‘PaDiLhA SP” Padilha. After hitting an all-time high in May at #10, Padilha continues to work his way up the rankings moved up to #9 in the world earlier this month. Only Joao ‘joaosimaobh’ Simao sits ahead of him in the Brazilian rankings. A big part of Padilha’s rise up the rankings comes from his wins in the PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker. He first took down Event #40 (Medium) for $ 132,274.48 and a career-best 935.95 PLB points. A few days later he won Event #56 (Medium), adding $41,702 to his bankroll and 541.66 PLB points to his total as well.

  24. [caption width="640"] Chris Moorman and Christopher Brammer both won their first WSOP bracelets this summer. (WSOP photo)[/caption] It took a while for the former #1-ranked players to get going at the 2017 World Series of Poker, but now that the Main Event is a little over two weeks away, the group of elite players is clearly hitting its stride. With 52 cashes and $2,561,302 in earnings through 46 events, the group still has a ways to go before matching the 2016 numbers of 110 cashes and $11,729,142 in earnings. Christopher Brammer's first bracelet win this past weekend was the second bracelet won by former #1-ranked PocketFivers this summer. It also made him the highest earning member of the group so far this year. Christopher Brammer2017 WSOP cashes: 2 2017 WSOP earnings: $528,799 Brammer beat out 504 other players to win the $5,000 No Limit Hold'em (30 minute levels) and his first career bracelet. The win was worth $527,555. It was Brammer's first WSOP final table appearance since two fifth place finishes in 2012. Brammer's only other 2017 WSOP cash was a 145th-place finish in the $1,000 Super Turbo Bounty for $1,244. Shaun Deeb2017 WSOP cashes: 7 2017 WSOP earnings: $195,198 While Shaun Deeb has yet to win a bracelet this summer, he's managed to find the cashier's cage seven times, the most of any former #1-ranked player. Of the seven cashes, just one was a final table. Deeb finished second to Ben Yu in the $10,000 Triple Draw Deuce to Seven event for $143,842. His next biggest score came in the $10,000 Limit Hold'em Championship where he finished 12th for $12,318. Chris Hunichen2017 WSOP cashes: 2 2017 WSOP earnings: $363,646 Chris Hunichen made it through 572 other players in the $5,000 Six Max No Limit Hold'em event only to lose heads-up with Russia's Nadar Kazhmazov. The $358,677 score is Hunichen's biggest at the WSOP. His previous was $229,575 for a sixth place finish in the 2013 Millionaire Maker. Yevgeniy Timoshenko2017 WSOP cashes: 3 2017 WSOP earnings: $228,746 In the same event that Brammer won, Yevgeniy Timoshenko finished third for $223,574, his third largest WSOP cash behind a 22nd place finish in the 2013 Main Event and a runner-up in the $25,000 Heads-up Championship in 2011. His other two cashes this summer were a 821st place finish in the Millionaire Maker and a 86th place finish in the $1,500 Pot Limit Omaha event.
  25. The busy two-week stretch that included PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker, partypoker Powerfestand 888poker XL Inferno allowed some of the best online poker players to hit some major career milestones including one player becoming just the fourth ever to crack the $10 million mark. It wasn't anything dramatic, but former #1-ranked Sebastian 'p0cket00' Sikorski had a min-cash on PokerStars on May 14 to push his career earnings into eight-figures territory. Sikorski joins Nicolas 'PokerKaiser' Fierro, Bryan 'bparis' Paris and Chris 'moorman1' Moorman as the only players to have earned that much. Sikorski wasn't the only player to hit a big number though. Jeff 'YoungSupremacy' Hakim and 'inhoo' both moved past $8 million in earnings. Hakim finished ninth in SCOOP Event #31 High ($2,100 NLHE) to hit the magic number. Sweden's 'inhoo' added over $200,000 to his lifetime earnings over the past two weeks, with five five-figure scores including Powerfest and XL Inferno final tables and a third place finish in the PokerStars Sunday Grand. Despite losing his #1 ranking, 'lena900' surpassed $7 million in lifetime earnings. There are now six Swedish players with at least that much in earnings. Hungary's top-ranked player, Andras 'probirs' Nemeth, passed $6 million while Connor 'blanconegro' Drinan and Olli ' OgSulttaani' Ikonen both hit the $5 million mark. New Jersey saw another player hit an impressive milestone. Yong ' ykwon17' Kwon became the latest Garden State grinder to hit $1 million in earnings on the regulated sites in his home state. Triple Crown Club Gets a New Member Brazil's Durair 'Duraircwb' Do Rosario Netto won his first career Triple Crown, taking down the PokerStars Hot $33, 888poker XL Inferno Event #154 and the partypoker Middleweight: Counterpunch for a little over $12,000 in earnings. 'girafganger7' Ascends the Throne as Rankings Go Haywire The top 100 of the PocketFives Rankings look very different now after the Spring series' all wrapped up. The most high profile change came at the very top as Belgium's 'girafganger7' rode some late SCOOP success to the #1 ranking. There were a total of 14 players in the top 100 who hit career-high marks. girafganger7 from #5 to #1 Ti0 from #28 to #21 nilsef from #41 to #36 omaha4rollz from #59 to #50 Flat from #57 to #56 Apotheosis from #80 to #58 funwheel from #123 to #61 pabritz from #91 to #63 Kovalski from #82 to #67 que_te_crio from #90 to #69 kot_spartac from #118 to #70 CheVeaU from #99 to #75 davaman from #76 to #75 pabritz from #95 to #91
