With all the excitement emanating from the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas, it can be difficult to pay attention to much else – especially in the realm of online poker. It has been a while since our last PokerStars Leaderboard update and a lot has happened. Despite the time elapsed without an update, many of the same players have reappeared week after week, giving us plenty of things to talk about. While all players that make the leaderboard are considered top notch players, it is the pure elite that have the audacity to continually take down a top ten position. The top ten is currently home to several well known players, but there are even more well deserving players well below the cutoff this week. Let’s take a look!

Remember, FlopTurnRiver keeps track of the PokerStars Leaderboard results daily and keeps them archived on the PokerStars network page which can be found here: Leaderboard-Calendar. Simply scroll down to the leaderboard section and select whichever day you feel like viewing. It’s a great way to see how players are progressing as time goes on.

Current June 28th Top Ten MTT Leaders:

1 b00k0fMud0ra 6384.59
2 rage4dorder 6201.94
3 rbeckwith 6184.93
4 DESS66 6038.85
5 anfo500 5613.94
6 FouTight 5550.02
7 ROONEY_DIVES 5374.25
8 ICuRaRook 5319.23
9 bjolla 5242.82
10 NeverScaredB 5035.47

B00k0fMud0ra delivers this week’s first surprise as he continues his reign on first place for the entire three weeks that haven’t been covered. He started out the month with a dominant chip lead over second place and is nearing the end of the month with a dangerously close chip stack to the current 2nd place holder, rage4dorder. Rage has also returned firing this week staying in 2nd place for all three of the previous weeks since PokerStars was last covered.

Our first change in rank is shown with rbeckwith in 3rd place. Rbeck has been making a steady rise for the top for the past three weeks and has doubled their previous position from 6th to 3rd. Though anything can happen, I doubt rbeck will be able to muster up the needed points in the remaining two days before the positions are capped and the winners are announced. DESS66 is the first player to appear in the top ten that wasn’t previously featured. In fact, at the time of our last update, DESS sat in 31st place, well below the top ten cutoff.

Anfo500 followed DESS66’s lead and even more impressively climbed every single PokerStars leaderboard rank up to 5th place. In our last update anfo didn’t appear anywhere in the 100 recorded places for PokerStars. FouTight is in the same boat as the last two and climbed up to 6th from June 9th’s 58th position. ROONEY_DIVES has risen to 7th from 53rd.

ICuRaRook is another player who occupied the top ten in the leaderboard in our June 9th update and has remained there ever since. Today he comes in at 8th place, one position higher than three short weeks ago. Bjolla makes an appearance today in 9th place after having sat in 26th on June 9th, and NeverScaredB has risen to 10th from 16th.

Places 11 through 26 contain a few other noteworthy players.

24 Ex-Eli 4550.66
25 stacksanchez 4528.78
26 ILS007 4520.12

Annachung has fallen to 12th place this week. On June 9th Anna was sitting in a very comfortable 3rd place but has been unable to hold any notable position. Several slots below her sits J Darnielle, a player who is not unknown to the PokerStars top ten, but has been struggling the past couple months to gain a top ten position. Further yet is ILS007. ILS has appeared in the top ten here and there, and even sat in 8th place just three short weeks ago. A trend seems to be forming though as each time he hits a top ten position he’s unable to hold it and slouches several positions lower.

47 shaundeeb 4300.91

Shaundeeb is one of the best and most profitable MTT players on PokerStars, but lately rough waters have been steering him clear of any top ten position, unfortunately.
