Maria Ho is continuing her dominance of the Power Rankings by staying at No. 1 for the second straight week, and her sixth straight week in the Top 3. This week marks the third straight week in which Ali Imsirovic climbs the rankings, placing him at No. 2. Randall Emmett drops one spot but remains in the Top 3 while James Carroll and Jamie Gold are in the Top 10 for the very first time. Now let’s dig in!

The Poker Central Power Rankings are voted on each week by five-panel members who use their own criteria to determine player relevance leading to a list of 25 players that score points from 65 down to 1. The criteria loosely include player results, social media influence, some good ol’ drama or other things of note that make ear perk up and our eyes grow bigger. Got beef with our decisions on a week-to-week basis? Hit us up on @PokerCentral on Twitter and jump into the conversation.
