Australian Poker Rankings: Karamalikis Tops the Table as Kinkade Plummets

Posted at 14:35 2013-02-01 by Matthew Pitt

The Australian online poker tournament rankings have been updated and once again it is Jonathan “xMONSTERxDONGx” Karamalikis who tops the leader board.

Karamalikis has opened up a substantial lead over his nearest rival, one of over 800 points. Along with him cashing consistently, Karamalikis’ points tally received a massive boost when he won the fourth event of the recently finished Turbo Championship Of Poker on PokerStars. That result bagged the popular pro close to $60,000 in prize money too.

Second place is currently the home of Nurlan “Nur1ck” Boobekov, thanks in part to two solid results last week. An eighth place finish in The Big $162 on PokerStars was followed up with an outright win in the $25,000 Guaranteed on PartyPoker, to boost Boobekov’s bankroll by almost $10,000 and his leader board points by 280.

Rounding out the top five ranking spots are Matt “mjw006” Wakeman; James “supanov99” Bills and Michael “WaGe N WaRz” Federsen. Although concentrating on the live poker scene at the Aussie Millions, Bills looks to be returning to form once again so expect his ranking to soar in the coming weeks.

8Tom “tollgate” Grigg4406.65
9Jay “SEABEAST” Kinkade4342.52
10Alex “krasark” Givotovsky4269.02

The biggest surprise in the latest standing is Jay “SEABEAST” Kinkade’s fall from grace. PokerNetwork was tipping Kinkade to overtake Karamalikis at the top of the table, but now he finds himself hanging onto his top 10 status by a thread.

His fall from grace has no bearing on his results, rather Kinkade has decided to remove his screen names from all online poker sites with the exception of PokerStars and Full Tilt Poker . We are sure he has his reasons for this and even though he only has two names picking up points, we are also certain his climb up the rankings is a case of when not if.
