Leah reached his first World Poker Tour final table of his career at the LA Poker Classic, ultimately finishing runner-up to back-to-back champ Anthony Zinno. Leah earned the second-largest cash of his career with $701,350 – the largest being 2014’s Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open runner-up finish to Dan Colman for $1.04 million
Leah stuck with the WPT California tour with a cash in the World Poker Tour Bay 101 Shooting Star Classic with a 64th place finish for $13,940 and 15.73 POY points.
Stephen Chidwick debuted in the rankings at number 10 after taking second place in a high roller event at the 2015 PokerStars Macau Poker Cup or $134,895 and 140 POY points. It’s just Chidwick’s third cash of 2015 following a PokerStars Caribbean Adventure preliminary event and the Aussie Millions $25,000 Challenge.
Mark Dube broke into the top 20 mostly due to his runner-up finish at WPT Lucky Hearts Poker Open where he picked up $434,462 and 196 POY points. Then he traveled across the country with the WPT and cashed in the Bay 101 Main Event in 45th place for $20,190 – the 15.73 POY points edged him just above Byron Kaverman.
Olivier Busquet has been in the top 20 of the Power Rankings since August of 2014 and this week he climbed a spot on the latter with a deepish run in the WPT Fallsview Poker Classic Main Event for 32nd place and $9,230 and an additional 10.5 POY points.
Joe McKeehen plunged out of the rankings from 11th to 24th as a victim of the Power Rankings calendar. His 2013 World Series of Poker Circuit Atlantic City Main Event win for $174,150 timed out and then he lost half the value of his fourth place finish in 2014’s WSOP Circuit Palm Beach Main Event where he earned $68,291.
