  1. For the second straight week, we have a new #1 player atop the PocketFives Online Poker Rankings, which are recalculated every Wednesday. This time, it's Sweden's Sheater, who was last ranked #1 in January. This is Sheater's second stint at #1, a spot no player has held for more than four weeks since the middle of last year. Sheater moved up two spots to #1 and has a slim four-point edge over Chris moorman1Moorman, last week's #1 who now sits at #2 and just won a World Poker Tour titlein Los Angeles. Sheater finished third in the PokerStars Sunday Six-Max over the weekend for $17,000 and 224 PLB Points, and incredibly has 22 tracked in the money finishes with two wins since Sunday. Another former #1 making waves this week was Vinkyy (pictured), who moved up three spots to reenter the top 10 at #8 worldwide. Vinkyy was last ranked #1 in October and has $5.2 million in tracked scores. He is about 800 PLB Points away from eclipsing Sheater for #1, so he has some ground to make up, but just passed 5,000 tracked in the money finishes, one of the highest totals of anyone on PocketFives. One of the biggest jumps of the week inside the top 100 went to Malta's fzkk, who just won his second PocketFives Triple Crown. He moved up from #52 worldwide to #23, a jump of 29 spots, and recently recorded five wins in four days to help push him toward the top 20. The Malta player earned his $1 million cash badge on PocketFives on March 6. Leaping 23 spots to settle at #44 in the world is 23NoraB, who calls Austria home. He is another March Triple Crown winner and can be found at #4 in his home nation. Other than his third Triple Crown, his big claim to fame in recent days is taking down the Full Tilt Poker T-Rex for $33,000 on Sunday, earning 380 PLB Points in the process. He has 159 tracked wins that have helped boost his career earnings to $3.5 million. Canada's blanconegrowon the Full Tilt $250,000 Guarantee over the weekend for $55,000 and a solid 524 PLB Points to move up 24 places in the Rankings to #59. He received his $3 million cash badge on Wednesday, the same day as the Rankings were updated, and seems poised to shatter his all-time high of #40 worldwide, set last year. The highest debut in the top 100 of the Rankings went to Poland's TryToExploit (pictured), who entered at #71, three places off his highest position ever. TryToExploit won the PokerStars Sunday Million last weekend for 1,348 PLB Points officially, the largest score of the week on any site. He finished 68th in the PokerStars Eighth Anniversary Sunday Million on March 2, which earned him 210 PLB Points. Here's a look at the top 10 players in the PocketFives Rankings this week along with the PLB score for each: 1. Sheater - 7,647 points 2. moorman1 - 7,643 points 3. lukethafluke - 7,593 points 4.

  2. For the 13th time, Chris moorman1Moorman (pictured) is on top of the PocketFives Online Poker Rankings. When the leaderboard was recalculated on Wednesday, Moorman rose one spot from #2 tto #1 and was last ranked atop the pack in mid-March. Did we mention that the Brit is fresh off winning the World Poker Tour's LA Poker Classic last month for $1 million? Must be nice! Moorman has been busy churning away volume online after a brief hiatus to play live poker and pen his forthcoming strategy book in Southern California. April is only nine days old and already Moorman has recorded 70 in the money finishes that are tracked for the Rankings this month for $76,000 total, an average of $1,085 each. He is the most decorated PocketFiver you'll find and has an incredible $11 million in online winnings, $4 million more than the next closest player. After moving up 12 spots to #4 last week, huiiiiiiiiiiclimbed two more places to settle at #2. He is about 60 PLB Points shy of overtaking Moorman for the #1 spot and was the runner-up in the PokerStars.fr Sunday High Roller over the weekend for $11,000 and 184 PLB Points. One of his big claims to fame came last month in a PokerStars WCOOP Challenge $215 Rebuy, a tournament he finished second in for $126,000 officially. Former #1 ranked Vinkyy shot up from #18 worldwide to #5 this week. He was last #1 in October 2013 and won the PokerStars $109 Rebuy six days ago for $11,000 and 233 PLB Points. Vinkyy has a healthy 164 tracked wins and $5.4 million in lifetime online cashes. The highest debut in the top 100 of the Rankings this week went to Jonas donut604Mackoff (pictured), who chopped an FTOPS $320 No Limit Hold'em Re-Entry event on Full Tilt for $117,000. He took down the PokerStars Super Tuesday for $121,000 last month, giving him six-figure scores, both wins, in back-to-back months worth 1,624 PLB Points combined. Mackoff is enjoying his highest position ever in the Rankings at #43. Also climbing this week was Lithuania's Merceko, who moved up 43 spots to land at #44. He won a PokerStars.fr SCOOP event three days ago for $82,000 and 707 PLB Points to help his cause and now has $1.5 million in tracked scores. Merceko is the top dog in Lithuania, where he resides in Klaipeda. Canada's ott-man87 went from #75 to #54 this week on the strength of a victory in the PokerStars $109 NLHE Turbo Cubed for $10,000 and 223 PLB Points as well as a win one day prior in the site's Hot $55 for $11,000. ott-man87 is the top-ranked player in Windsor, Ontario and just passed 3,700 tracked scores. Finally, we wanted to talk about longtime PocketFiver David Bakes Baker (pictured), who moved up 29 spots to land at #60 in the world. Baker finished fourth in an FTOPS event on Sunday for $32,000, just one week removed from taking sixth in the WCOOP Challenge Main Event for an outstanding $121,000. Those two scores were worth nearly 1,000 PLB Points combined. Here are the top 10 players in the Rankings this week along with the PLB scores for each: 1. moorman1- 7,606 points 2. huiiiiiiiiii- 7,543 points 3. lukethafluke - 7,448 points 4. Sheater - 7,378 points 5. Vinkyy- 6,870 points 6. rounder63 - 6,853 points 7. bparis - 6,849 points 8. Flush_Entity - 6,785 points 9. ekziter - 6,753 points 10. VnilaVader - 6,752 points Congrats to all of our ranked players! Want the latest poker headlines and interviews? Follow PocketFives on Twitterand Like PocketFives on Facebook.

  3. It's Wednesday, which means the PocketFives Online Poker Rankingswere recalculated. Last week's #1 player, Griffin Flush_Entity Benger, retained the top spot for the second week in a row with 7,812 PLB Points, but several PocketFivers are nipping at his heels. Benger is from Toronto and ascended to the top spot for the first time in two years. The new eighth-ranked player on PocketFives is p0cket00(pictured), a former #1 who last reached the apex of the Rankings in 2011. The Canadian has over $7.5 million in tracked scores, the second largest total of anyone on PocketFives, and is fresh off finishing second in a PokerStars $215 NLHE Turbo 2X Chance tournament for $11,000 three days ago. p0cket00 was at #22 last week. Already this month, p0cket00 has $147,000 in tracked winnings from 63 in the money finishes, an average of $2,333 each. He has four scores of over $10,000 in May and, mind you, the month is only two weeks old. Also moving from the 20s to the top 10 of the Rankings was Roman Romeopro Romanovskyi (pictured). You can now find him at #10 worldwide, up 14 spots on the week on the strength of a win in a $320 NLHE Six-Max tournament on PokerStars for $18,000 and nearly 300 PLB Points. Romanovskyi has $3.8 million in lifetime cashes and his ranking represents his highest mark ever. Germany's Fresh_Oo_D debuted in the top 100 at #30 this week. He was the runner-up in the PokerStars Sunday 500 over the weekend for $62,000 officially and a rock solid 463 PLB Points. The same day, he finished second in a SCOOP $2,100 NLHE event for nearly $300,000 in cash plus nearly 1,000 PLB Points. If all that weren't enough, the day before, he took ninth in a SCOOP $2,100 NLHE Turbo Zoom event for $17,000. As Samuel L. Jackson would say, "Hold onto your butts." In the first two weeks of May, Fresh_Oo_D has $454,000 in tracked scores across 48 in the money finishes, an average of $9,458 each and the most among anyone this month. He is the top-ranked player in Germany and could be found as high as #6 worldwide last year. Also entering the top 100 this week was Portugal's Rui RuiNF Ferreira, who sits at #34, just four spots behind Fresh_Oo_D. He had a blockbuster SCOOP showing on May 6, winning a $700 NLHE Heads-Up event and finishing second in the Super Tuesday for nearly $300,000 combined along with well over 1,500 PLB Points. As has become the norm, four of the top five players in the Rankings this week call Sweden home. Here's a look at the top 10 players this week, along with the PLB score for each: 1. Flush_Entity (Canada) - 7,812 points 2. lukethafluke (Sweden) - 7,691 points 3. VnilaVader (Sweden) - 7,641 points 4. r4ndomr4gs (Sweden) - 7,463 points 5.

  4. The PocketFives Online Poker Rankingswere recalculated today and, for the third straight week, Anton VnilaVaderHerrmann was the top player in the world. He continues to rack up cashes too, including an $11,000 haul for winning a PokerStars $320 No Limit Hold'em Six-Max tournament one week ago and a $42,000 haul for taking down the site's Bigger $55 two days before that. Herrmann has a 100-point lead over second place in the Rankings. We have two newcomers to the top 10 this week. The first is Connor blanconegro Drinan (pictured), who entered at #8 worldwide, his highest position ever. Drinan has been on fire this week, winning the PokerStars Hotter $75 on Sunday for $27,000 and final tabling the Sunday Second Chance the same day for another $13,000. The second newcomer to the top 10 this week was Alen lilachaaBilic, a recent PocketFives interviewee who won the iPoker Sunday Special ten days ago for $33,000 and took down the PokerStars Sunday 500 on April 13 for $79,000 officially. Bilic opened the month of April by earning an FTOPS jersey and is up to $1.3 million in tracked scores. We wouldn't be surprised to see him crack the top five next week. Sweden's Yaya24, one of six Swedes in the top 12 of the Rankings, moved up seven spots after being ranked #19 last week. Yaya24 won the Full Tilt PokerT-Rex over the weekend for $25,000 and finished second in a Winamax W Series tournament earlier this month for $22,000. Shooting up 31 spots this week, one of the biggest jumps of anyone in the top 100, was Canada's Lockhurt(pictured), who settled at #52, his highest position ever. Lockhurt won the PokerStars $109 No Limit Hold'em Cubed for $23,000 on Sunday and final tabled the Bigger $162 on April 20 for $17,000. He is the top-ranked player in Newmarket, Ontario and plays as UncleAnte9on PokerStars. Speaking of Canadians, Vancouver's d.quangmotored from #86 to #57 on the strength of a victory in a PokerStars Carnival tournament for $30,000 nine days ago. He received his $2 million cash badge last week and can be found under the user name PrestonBankson 888 Poker. Hungary's breeth (pictured) debuted at #65 worldwide, the highest ranking of anyone entering the top 100 of the Rankings this week. He was ranked as high as #3 on PocketFives five years ago and won a PokerStars $109 No Limit Hold'em Turbo on Sunday for $19,000. On April 15, he final tabled the site's Super Tuesday and reeled in $30,000. breeth is the #1 player in Hungary. Here are the top 10 players in the PocketFives Rankings this week along with the PLB score for each: 1. VnilaVader- 7,679 points 2. Flush_Entity - 7,562 points 3. lukethafluke - 7,439 points 4.

  5. There was a major shakeup this week atop the PocketFives Poker Rankingswhen the leaderboard was recalculated on Wednesday. Let's start with last week's #1, Chris moorman1Moorman, who slid to #5 with 7,225 PLB Points. It was, incredibly, Moorman's 21st stint at #1 and he remains within striking distance of the top spot, which Sweden's Anton VnilaVader Herrmann (pictured) now owns with 7,516 PLB Points. Herrmann has had quite a blockbuster week. On Sunday, he won the FTOPS Two-Day Event on Full Tilt Pokerfor $109,000 and 742 PLB Points. The tournament, which drew 787 entrants, had a prize pool that passed $550,000 and Herrmann netted the largest tracked online cash of his career in the process. He has $2.7 million in online winnings and plays as mrbraton Full Tilt and MORTIIIIIIIIon PokerStars. Swedes continue to have a death grip on the Rankings, owning three of the top four spots and half of the top 12. Since Christmas, Swedes have held the top spot in the Rankings for all but three weeks. There are 470 Swedish online poker players on PocketFives who have PLB scores. Rick TheClaimeer Trigg (pictured) moved up from #14 to #7 this week, one spot off his highest position ever. Since April began, Trigg has amassed $75,000 in tracked scores across 60 in the money finishes, an average of $1,250 each. He is from Sheffield, England and won a Grosvenor UK Poker Tour live event last November for $84,000. Sweden's inhoo also made waves this week, moving up from #22 worldwide to #8. He won the PokerStars Big $162 on April 7 for $21,000 and is up to $4.1 million in online earnings. Despite being ranked #8 worldwide, inhoo is #4 in his home nation and has been a member of PocketFives since the Beijing Olympics. As we mentioned, the top 10 received quite a makeover this week, including the addition of r4ndomr4gs, who rose 21 spots to land at #10, three off his all-time high. The Swede won the PokerStars Hot $75 on Monday for $11,000, one day after taking down the Sunday Supersonic for $56,000 officially and 566 PLB Points. He has $3.6 million in tracked scores from 2,600 in the money finishes. Outside of the top 10, PureCash25 (pictured) rocketed from #42 to #17 on the strength of three five-figure scores already in April, including wins in the PokerStars Big $22 and $215 Rebuy on back-to-back days last week for $33,000 total. He is the top-ranked PocketFiver in British Columbia, Canada. Finally, we wanted to single out Scotland's Niall firaldo Farrell, who re-entered the top 100 at #35. Usually, the highest-ranked new player in the top 100 is in the 60s or 70s, but Farrell managed to jump all the way to #35. The cause: a $236,000 victory in the FTOPS Main Event that was worth 1,238 PLB Points, one of the largest totals you'll see for a single cash. Here are the top 10 players in the Rankings this week along with the PLB score for each: 1. VnilaVader - 7,516 points 2. lukethafluke - 7,485 points 3. huiiiiiiiiii - 7,481 points 4. Sheater - 7,362 points 5. moorman1 - 7,225 points 6. Flush_Entity - 6,962 points 7. TheClaimeer - 6,904 points 8. inhoo - 6,833 points 9. bparis - 6,832 points 10. r4ndomr4gs - 6,813 points Congrats to all of our ranked members this week!

  6. We had two new entries into the top 10 of the PocketFives Poker Player Rankingsthis week. In fact, both came from the 20s in a very impressive showing. We'll start with Costa Rica's Nicholas rounder63 Carrillo (pictured), who moved up from #20 to #5, his highest slotting ever. He has a healthy $4.4 million in tracked scores. Carrillo won the PartyPoker$100,000 Guaranteed High Roller over the weekend for $14,000 and 327 PLB Points one day after taking down the PokerStarsBig $162 for $21,000 and 346 PLB Points. All told, he has 220 tracked wins and over 600 top-three finishes. Carrillo now sits with 6,952 PLB Points, 650 away from the #1 overall ranking, which belongs to Sweden's Sheater. The other new entry from the 20s was Germany's overthetop43, who moved up 19 spots to settle at #10. He is $3,000 away from cracking $2 million in lifetime scores and finished third in the weekend's Sunday Supersonic for $31,000 and 291 PLB Points. The same day, he took down the PokerStars $265 No Limit Hold'em Knockout for $16,000 and the same 291 points. He is the top-ranked player in Germany and, like Carrillo, has reached his highest ranking ever. Brian bparisParis (pictured), who was ranked #5 worldwide earlier this year, moved up 10 places to #12. Paris has the eighth highest cash total of any PocketFiver at $6.6 million and took down the PokerStars $55 No Limit Hold'em Turbo 2X Chance on March 16 for $14,000 and 279 PLB Points. Paris has nearly 7,000 tracked in the money finishes and is a two-time PocketFives Triple Crown winner. We could very well see him reenter the top 10 next Wednesday when the Rankings are recalculated. Also shooting up the charts this week was Portugal's JDias99, who final tabled the PokerStars Sunday 500 over the weekend for $44,000 and 351 PLB Points. The same day, he finished sixth in the 888 Poker Mega Deep and bagged another $3,000. JDias99 moved up from #25 in the world to #13 and has $67,000 in earnings from 30 scores this month. Leaping almost 30 spots in the Rankings was Russia's MAMOHT_T, who landed at #38 after being ranked #67 last week. He won the weekend's Full Tilt $250,000 Guaranteed for $52,000 and a massive 513 PLB Points to help his cause and is on the verge of earning a $4 million cash badge. He is #1 in Russia and was once ranked as high as #8 in the world on PocketFives. Finally, we wanted to single out moneyinbag (pictured), who had one of the biggest movements in the top 100, rising from #90 to #57, his best ranking ever. He was the runner-up in the Sunday Second Chance over the weekend for $37,000 and 366 PLB Points and took down the PokerStars $265 No Limit Hold'em Knockout for $14,000 a week before that. Here are the top 10 players in the Rankings this week along with the PLB score for each: 1. Sheater- 7,611 points 2. lukethafluke - 7,509 points 3. moorman1 - 7,485 points 4.

  7. The PocketFives Rankingswere recalculated on Wednesday and, unlike last week, the top 10 worldwide remained relatively unchanged. Your #1 player in the world is still Anton VnilaVaderHerrmann, who is one of four Swedes in the top seven of the Rankings and won the PokerStars Bigger $55 three days ago for $42,000 to solidify the top spot for the second straight week. Herrmann has about 300 PLB Points more than the second place player in the Rankings. No player has held onto the top spot for more than four weeks since October. Outside of the top 10, there was plenty of movement, as Alen lilachaa Bilic (pictured) moved up from #43 worldwide to #20, his highest ranking ever. Bilic has been a rock star over the past six weeks, posting the following wins, among others, since March began: April 13: 1st Place in the PokerStars Sunday 500 for $79,000 April 20: 1st Place in the iPoker Sunday Special for $33,000 March 8: 1st Place in the PokerStars Big $162 for $21,000 April 9: 1st Place in FTOPS Event #22 for $21,000 Another major jump this week belonged to Steve Illini213Barshak, who moved up from #65 in the world to #39. Barshak won the PokerStars $109 No Limit Hold'em Turbo Cubed three days ago for $21,000 and received his $5 million cash badge on PocketFives on April 14; he is one of only three people to accomplish that feat this year. Barshak has been a member of PocketFives since 2007 and you can follow him on Twitter under the handle @illini213. Russia's veeea(pictured), who was ranked as high as #14 in the world last year, is back up to #64 after ascending 35 spots this week. He has seven tracked wins since March 29: the iPoker €5,000 Guaranteed, PartyPokerHigh Roller, PokerStars $109 No Limit Hold'em Turbo Cubed, iPoker €12,500 Guaranteed, Full Tilt Poker $7,000 Guaranteed, and PokerStars $109 No Limit Hold'em Quad (twice). The highest new player in the top 100 this week was hauptschule, who came in at #73, his best ranking ever. The Germany poker community member has had a rock solid month of April, including victories in the PokerStars $109 Sunday Rebuy, PokerStars.fr €15,000 Guaranteed, and PokerStars Sunday Kickoff for $100,000 total. Finally, we wanted to single out pmahoney1, who moved up from #136 worldwide to #80. This poker player from Mexico won the PokerStars Big $55 last week for $18,000 and finished third in the site's Super Tuesday three days before that for $58,000. Also this month, he has won the PokerStars $320 No Limit Hold'em Six-Max, $27 Saturday Eliminator, and Hot $75 for $32,000 combined.

  8. The PocketFives Online Poker Rankingswere recalculated on Wednesday and for the eighth time this year, we have a new #1 ranked player. This week, it's Griffin Flush_Entity Benger (pictured), who has been on a tear as of late and assumes the #1 spot for the first time since mid-2012. We caught up with Benger shortly after the Rankings were released. Here are the top 10 players this week along with the PLB score for each: 1. Flush_Entity - 7,853 points 2. VnilaVader - 7,552 points 3. lukethafluke - 7,304 points 4. moorman1 - 7,221 points 5. r4ndomr4gs - 7,217 points 6. Sheater - 7,137 points 7. huiiiiiiiiii - 7,083 points 8. blanconegro - 7,017 points 9. lena900 - 6,828 points 10. Yaya24 - 6,816 points PocketFives: Congrats! Tell us how you're feeling about being back at #1 in the world. Griffin Benger: I knew it was a matter of time with the heater I've been on recently and figured after my Hot $55 win on Sunday, this would be the week it happened. I stayed up a bit last night to wait for the Rankings to change. It's hard not to get a good night's sleep after you find out you're #1 at anything, let alone something as competitive as poker. --- Follow professional sports tipsters, make your own betting tips, and compete for real cash prizes. Tipdayis the ultimate sports tipping resource. Check it out. --- PocketFives: Do the Rankings mean a lot to you? Are they a motivator or how do they affect your mindset while playing? Griffin Benger: PocketFives has always been an incredible tool for me to track my progress, compare my success to my peers, and give me goals outside of just making money. It can get a bit monotonous to play MTT poker day after day trying to make money. It's fun when you see you're in contention for a Monthly or Yearly PLB or need one more win for a PocketFives Triple Crown. Dan Cypra: What do you attribute your recent success to? You've had a PokerStarsSunday 500 win, Sunday Supersonic final table, and Super Tuesday final table in the last few months, just to name a few key scores. Griffin Benger: I've been very fortunate in the sense that if I have ever felt like I might be hitting a bit of a lull in my game, I'm exposed to someone who's having a lot of success at the time who has been able to help me get to the next level. First it was Shyam s_dot111Srinivasan, then Calvin cal42688Anderson (pictured), then Paul paulgees81Volpe, then Simon pokerbrat13Charette, then Evan Jarvis of Gripsed.com, and most recently I attribute a great deal of my success to working with Connor blanconegro Drinan. Connor and I spent nearly a month-and-a-half together in Europe and were constantly grinding together and bouncing ideas off each other about different ways to approach hands and spots. It has done wonders for my game. It's really important to have a broad network of friends and colleagues in poker. Even if you might be considered better than a certain player, they are definitely doing something better than you, and if you're not going out of your way to find out what that is and then implementing it into your game, you're just being lazy. Laziness is the biggest problem in online MTT culture. We have so many tools out there to be successful, but people would rather moan and groan about how badly they run than work harder. The game is constantly evolving and becoming more challenging. If you're not evolving with it, you're either being lazy or don't want it as badly as I do. PocketFives: You're still with Phil Ivey's training site, right? Griffin Benger: Yes, I am. I share a great deal of insight in my first training video series of my Sunday 500 final table at IveyLeague.com. I genuinely feel the Masters membership is worth the money.

  13. 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.

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.

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.

  16. Since last October, no one has been able to stay at the top of the PocketFives Online Poker Rankingsfor longer than four weeks. Sure enough, this week was no exception, as Canada's p0cket00regained the top spot worldwide, surpassing Sweden's r4ndomr4gs (pictured), who was ranked #1 for a week. --- 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. Sign up now for great bonuses, €3,000,000 guaranteed monthly, and plenty of live events! --- This is p0cket00's seventh stint at #1 and his first since 2011. He won the Sunday Big Ticket over the weekend for $25,000 and finished second in the Full Tilt Sunday Major ten days ago for $23,000. p0cket00's $7.8 million in online MTT cashes is the second largest total of anyone on PocketFives.

The fuel was a blockbuster Sunday that saw him win the 888 PokerWhale for $54,000, take down the PokerStars $265 NLHE Knockout for $11,000, and finish second in the Full Tilt Sunday Brawl for $14,000. We should mention, again, that all three scores came on the same day.

The Rankings were not without a little bit of drama this week, as pleno1 won the Full Tilt Poker T-Rex on Tuesday, but the score was not imported until after the Rankings were recalculated. Therefore, pleno1 appears to be in position to be ranked #1 next week unless p0cket00 can hold him off. UK poker player makkapakk moved up from #23 this week to #15 on the strength of three five-figure cashes since August began: second place in the Full Tilt Turbo Hundo, seventh place in a WCOOP Challenge event, and fourth place in the PokerStars Big $162.

Grayson gray31 Ramage entered the top 100 this week at #41, one of the highest spots we've seen someone debut in the top 100 in several weeks. The cause: Ramage won the WCOOP Challenge $2,100 No Limit Hold'em Main Event for over a half-million dollars, beating a field of nearly 1,500 entrants.
