NZ’s Online Tournament lowdown Saturday 5th May – Friday 19th May.
So the last two weeks have seen plenty of action on the MTT online felt, with SCOOP running on Stars. We will have a full recap of how kiwi’s faired in the SCOOP shortly. In the meantime, we will cover all the action across the hundreds of tournaments daily across the web.
We kick off with KingPaulie who took down $4343 in the 109$ No Limit Turbo, taking down a tough field of 202 players.
Mstark87 this fortnight continued to crush the tournaments on Carbon Poker (CrazyPakeha). Taking down an exceptional 5 tournaments (and 3 runner-up performances)! Rather than go through them, we will simply list them:

SiacO took down one of the few tournaments on Stars that does not have a guarantee winning the $109 No Limit Holdem tournament that still managed a $9800 prize pool taking home $2450 defeating the 98 players.
In what is quickly coming a pattern, Snowman888 put up multiple victories again, this time taking 2 tournaments down on TitanPoker (playing as Houusnurhh). Winning the $1000 GP Freeze earned him $310.55 in the 135 player field. Taking down $3000 GP R/A earned him a nice, $705.63, nice return on the $5 entry.
And new entrant into the top 10 revengaa, who put in significant volume came out with a bang, putting in some epic volume, which resulted in four wins in the last two weeks, including three in one day on Pokerstars! Once again let’s see them in a list!
|$4k Gtd NLHE 360 Cap||$16.50||360||$1104.30|

Current Top 10 in New Zealand
The top 10 this week saw the addition of revengaa who joined P5’s two weeks ago but has been playing the micro – mid MTT’s since mid-2010, and slots into 8th place. There were some small changes in the rankings, with emufart69 having the largest fall of 3 places, in saying that he has not put in significant volume as of late. With mstark87 putting up so many victories, will he be able to break into the top 2 in the coming weeks?
New Zealand maintained its ranking of 30th in the Country rankings.
