Posted at 11:01 2012-05-03 by Matthew Pitt
Whilst the live poker world goes mad for the Global Poker Index the online poker community simply love the tournament rankings put together by PocketFives.com. Almost all of the big sites' tournament are covered and we are please to announce that Australia is ranked third in the world for online poker tournament players and could make a move on the top two if our boys and girls keep putting in the excellent results of recent week.
Our top ranked player, at time of writing, is brownie682 who is also ranked 34th in the entire world! The bulk of his $1,194,349.04 winnings have come on PokerStars where he needs just a couple of hundred dollars more to crack the $900,000 barrier.
Over the past week he has managed not one but two scores of over $7,000! the first came on Apr. 28 when he finished second in the $109 No Limit Hold'em Turbo, 2X Chance, $40,000 guaranteed for a cool $7,917.00 then the very next day he came second again, this time in the $82 No Limit Hold'em 6-Max Hyper Turbo $14,000 Guaranteed for a further $7,062.49.
The player currently ranked second in Australia is aces_up4108 from Templestow, Victoria. Like brownie682 he is a PokerStars regular and his $1,089,410.71 winnings on the world's biggest poker site make up three quarters of his $1,552,000 winnings. It seems like every single day he is making significant scores, his largest recent win being for $2,976.00 which he was awarded for his runner-up finish in the $109 No Limit Hold'em Turbo $15,000 guaranteed on April 30.
Making up the top 10 places are xMONSTERxDONGx, bazooka87, WhiteRabbito, BaZa88, WaGe N WaRz, BrendonR and semesa but there are plenty of players who are just one big score away from making it into the top 10 and possibly even higher.
