Bills Still Tops The Aussie Online Rankings, Karamalikis Chasing
Posted at 15:45 2012-10-12 by Matthew Pitt
James Bills is still the number one ranked online poker tournament player in Australia but he now faces the challenge of Jonathan “xMONSTERxDONGx” Karamalikis. Almost all of the top 10 places are filled with the same names as in previous updates, except that of ninth placed Nurlan “Nur1ck” Boobekov.
Bills kept up his impressive form for yet another week, cashing for almost $20,000 in total. His biggest win topped the scales at $6,990.00, which he was awarded for his seventh place finish in the $215 buy-in Sunday 2nd Chance. Bills also had four other cashes that were each worth over $2,000.
Hot on Bills’ heels is Karamalikis, who has been one of the most consistent performers in the world since as long as I have been in the industry. The man with the colourful alias had yet another bag full of cashes this week, the biggest being worth an impressive $7,166.45 that he picked up for his outright win in the PokerStars $22 1R1A.
The newcomer to the top 10 is the aforementioned Boobekov, who has been tearing up the virtual felt at an alarming rate. He had dozens of scores over the past week including, a win in the PartyPoker $7,000 guaranteed ($90 buy-in) for $2,462.40; another win in the $100 nightly tournament on the Ongame Network ($3,661.48) but he narrowly missed out on a coveted Tripple Crown when he finished second in the $100 buy-in $10,000 guaranteed Speed tournament on PartyPoker. If he keeps his current form up he will be flying up the leaderboard, that is for certain.
