Jonathan Karamilikis continues to fly the Aussie flag in the Global Poker Index (GPI) 300, now sitting in 261st after dropping as low as 275th in recent weeks.
And while Oliver Speidel looked set to join his compatriot when he was circling on the outskirts in 313th, he has dropped off the pace and occupies 335th.
However, Speidel remains closer to the GPI 300 than Joe Hachem, who has a lot of work to do from 368th.
Meanwhile there have been some big developments at the top of the GPI, with Dan Smith breaking Jason Mercier and Bertrand Grospellier's dominance having jumped five spots to take first.
Elsewhere, the new world champion Greg Merson climbed to his highest ever ranking, consolidating his place in the GPI 300 in 84th after he emerged at the head of a field of 6,598 players to win the 2012 World Series of Poker Main Event.
