The latest BLUFF Power Rankings shows the same 20 names as the previous update two weeks ago as Ole Schemion remains in first. Results from the Aussie Millions and EPT Deauville past and present caused the shifting in positions as several events moved past the one- and two-year time period.

Scott Seiver moved up three spots into fifth in the standings as he finished fourth place in the Aussie Millions LK Boutique $250,000 Challenge. The points earned in that event offset last year’s results from the Aussie Millions Main Event and $25,000 Challenge losing half their value.

Two players fell seven spots in the Power Rankings as Martin Jacobson and Ami Barer fell to 18th and 19th respectively. Jacobson’s two final tables from Aussie Millions moved past the one-year mark and a pair of results from EPT Deauville, including his High Roller final table, no longer counted as they were over two years old. Barer tumbled down the standings when his 2014 Aussie Millions win was now over a year old.

In positions 11 through 20, Davidi Kitai, Olivier Busquet and Jeff Madsen gained points in the past two weeks from minor cashes. Even a small result was enough for these three players to move up in the Power Rankings. Joe McKeehen cashed in the WPT Fallsview Main Event, but his fourth place finish in the 2014 WSOP Circuit Main Event in Palm Beach meant an overall decrease in points.
