Current Ranking


Sliding PLB

Last update: 31.01.2018

14.12.17 - First FT

This Sunday was sleepless. I started at 20:00 and finished around 07:00, then went to work. Funny day. Two more weekends to come, so top 15K is doable!


22.09.17 - Moving up

First scores tracked, few deep runs, nothing big. Jumped 7000+ places in the ranking tho lol


  • Goal: Make it to Top 1000 by the end of 2018.
  • User (P5s): brainless
  • Starting date: 01.09.2017
  • Starting point: 30 000+ worldwide
  • Starting bankroll: $250

I’ll focus on medium field MTTs (300-1000 players), regular to deep structure, and steadily increase the buy-in levels. The grater challenge would be to move to the bigger buy-in levels, where more ranking points are being rewarded.

I have to beat my all-time high record(4703) from 2012 when I was playing regularly.

Can a Recreational Player make it to Top 1000 Worldwide?

While doing this challenge, I’m working on my regular 9-to-5 job, which means I’m playing generally on the weekends and sometimes during the week.

I prefer playing as a hobby, which makes everything better for me. In the past I’ve tried to go pro, but this attempt resulted in poor results and general unhappiness. I believe I’ve found what works for me and I’ll stick to it.

Challenge side Goals:

  • I’d try to play few live events in my town (or nearby). Get social and make some poker contacts.
  • Get few months of poker training subscription
  • Achieve the $100K badge on PocketFives
  • Buy an ergo chair
  • Buy a Stand-up Desk / I got the IKEA SKARSTA
