Australian Online Poker Rankings Almost Unchanged; James Bills Still On Top
Posted at 13:00 2012-09-26 by Matthew Pitt
The PocketFives.com rankings for online poker tournament play have hardly changed for Australian poker players this week, with the top 10 being identical to the previous week's leader board. The only real difference was the fact Jonathan “xMONSTERxDONGx” Karamalikis jumped from eighth place to sixth after his WCOOP final table points came into effect and he continued to crush!
Still at the top of the standings, and by over 280 points, is James “BizBills” Bills, also known as supanova99 on the PocketFives site. Bills got the last seven days off to a flying start by finishing second in The Bigger $162 on PokerStars for a cool $36,882. Bills lost out heads up to Grayson “gray31” Physioc for the win.
The man currently ranked second in Australia, Tom “tollgate” Grigg, also has a five-figure score, his topping the scales at $16,701.00 that he was awarded for finishing third in The Big $162 on PokerStars the day after Bills' runner-up finish. Grigg had another fine week at the virtual felt and had Bills not had his huge score, Grigg would certainly have closed the gap between the two.
But despite the impressive results mentioned above the player of the week has to go to Karamalikis who since his WCOOP finish has been in blistering form. Since Sept. 16 Karamalikis has cashed almost 70 times, his two largest scores being for $23,925.17 (he won the Hotter $75) and $10,073.70 (he won a $109 turbo on PokerStars). If he keeps this form up then he will continue his climb up the rankings and will start to challenge the seemingly untouchable Bills.
