The poker scene is booming in Australia and whilst it is the Canadian and British are ranked one and two in the world on PocketFives in terms of online tournament play, our boys and girls are rapidly closing the gap thanks to us having some amazing players who are consistently putting in solid result.
Our top ranked player is someone who we mentioned just last week, Matt "brownie682" Brown who is currently ranked 27th in the entire world for online poker tournament play. The special formula PocketFives uses in their ranking gives Brown 5,862.83 points and just 600 behind him is the Bradley "BaZa88" Bower.
Bower is currently ranked 35th in the world but has been ranked as high as 10th (in October 2011), thanks to having more than $1,650,000 in online tournament winnings. His biggest cash to date stands at a staggering $91,470.00 that he was awarded for finishing fourth in the February 27, 2011 edition of the PokerStars Sunday Million.
Making up the top three is Matt "mjw006" Wakeman, whose 5,253.12 points rank him 37th in the world. At the turn of the year Wakeman was ranked as high as seventh in the world and will be looking to climb back to those dizzy heights in the coming weeks and months.
