This week is filled with winners in poker through various methods! While Manig Loeser and Bryn Kenney were dominant on the felt, Dan ‘Jungleman’ Cates dominated the social media conversations by dropping an epic video that had Twitter in a tailspin. This week, we see Maria Ho climb up a few spots again while Alex Foxen, Daniel Negreanu, and Sergio Aido drop down but they maintain a spot in the Top 10. New in the Top 10 are Isaac Haxton, Steve O’Dwyer, and Antonio Esfandiari.
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.

All he does is win. After a few quiet weeks, Bryn Kenney is back on top with another massive win. This time it was a high roller win for $1.4 million at the Triton Poker Series in Montenegro. At the most recent Triton Series, Bryn finished second in the Main Event for $3 million and after winning a U.S. Poker Open event for $450,000 and the Aussie Millions Main Event for $915k, he’s now sitting on $6.5 million for the year already! This year now only trails his stellar 2017 campaign where he raked in $8.5 million when it was all said and done.

The Spanish crusher recorded the biggest score of his career a week ago in Monte Carlo and currently, he’s on his way to do more damage in Montenegro during the Triton Series events. Aido is a quiet guy who lets his chips do the talking and with $10.7 million in total career earnings, he’s doing a fantastic job!
Barely missing out on the Top 10 this week are Benjamin Pollak, Rainer Kempe, Phil Galfond, Seth Davies, and Joey Ingram.
