James “supanova99” Bills Keeps Hold Of Number One Online Rankings Spot

Posted at 08:15 2012-09-05 by Matthew Pitt

James “supanova99” Bills has managed to keep hold of the number one spot in the online poker rankings – according to PocketFives.com – thanks to somehow managing to crush online poker at the same time as plying his trade at the actual felt.

Over the past seven days Bills, who is ranked 19th in the world, cashed 15 times, reached four final tables finishing second in one tournament and taking down the $82 buy-in 6-Max Hyper on PokerStars. What makes this week so great for Bills is that he also finished sixth in the PokerStars APPT Melbourne Main Event for a score of $57,375! Top work!

Last week's number two, Dylan “WhiteRabbito” Honeyman, has dropped out of the rankings after removing all of his alias' from the PocketFives site. This means that Tom “tollgate” Grigg is our new number although he had a rather quiet week at the virtual felt.

Grigg only cashed 10 times and failed to reach any final tables or have any four-figure scores but that is partly down to the fact he was busy crushing souls at the APPT Melbourne Main Event where he eventually finished third for $114,750. PokerNetwork is sure Grigg will be back to his usual form online in the next few days.

One player who had a tremendous week was Semesa 'semesa' Brown who was very close to completing online poker's Triple Crown. He made it into the money places 20 times, reached six final tables had a third place, two second places and an outright win; the victory coming in the $55 rebuy Big Antes tournament on PokerStars. If he keeps up this form into this week then expect to see him higher than his fifth place.

There was very little change in the rest of the top 10 although we do have a new face in there right now. In thenth spot there is Tim “TurnRiva” Marsters who has his name in lights now 'WhiteRabbito' has decided he no longer wants to be ranked. A couple of good results for TurnRiva, and in fact anyone in positions 6-10 would see them climb up the rankings as it is very tight at the moment with just a couple of hundred points separating many places.
