Australian Poker Rankings: Jesse McKenzie Climbs to 7th Place

Posted at 13:30 2013-08-02 by Matthew Pitt

Jesse “OnTheMac” McKenzie has climbed to seventh place in the Australian online poker rankings after some splendid results in the past couple of weeks.

Over the past fortnight, McKenzie has been reaching final tables for fun. Not only that, but he has also been taking down tournaments with an alarming regularity to boot. Recent outright victories include:

  • The PokerStars $16.50 NL Hold’em Turbo for $411
  • The PokerStars $109 NL Hold’em $15k Gtd for $4,064
  • The PokerStars $77 NLHE 6-Max Turbo $10k Gtd for $2,979
  • The PokerStars $33 NL Hold’em $3k Gtd for $918

We would not be surprised in the slightest if we saw McKenzie in the top five places by the time the rankings are updated next week.

As you can see from the table, Mathew Wakeman still has a commanding lead at the top of the leader board. Wakeman’s impressive points total of 7525.73 is enough to place him fourth in the worldwide standings.

Once ANZPT Queenstown is done and dusted we would fully expect Jono “xMONSTERxDONGx” Karamalikis to hit the virtual felt with renewed vigour, thanks in part to him becoming a Red Pro at Full Tilt Poker once again. Karamalikis’ last recorded online cash came on May 26, 2013 so it is about time he returned to the online arena and started owning again.

Shout outs have to go to Michael “WaGe N WaRz” Federsen for three fantastic recent results. Federsen binked the $55 NL Hold’em 1R1A for a $3,017 score and then took down Full Tilt Poker’s Three for Thursday for $7,488 before coming third in William Hill’s $150,000 Sunday Special for $15,656.
