Jonathan Karamalikis has cut somewhat of a lonely figure in the Global Poker Index (GPI) 300 in recent weeks, being the only Australian to have a spot in the elite rankings as he languished around 270th.
But the good news is that Karamalikis has surged up the table following his win in the Asia Championship of Poker (ACOP) High Roller, jumping 152 spots to now sit comfortably in 107th.
And compatriot Jeff Rossiter has also rocketed in the standings for his ACOP exploits, meaning there are two Australian poker stars in the GPI 300 for the first time in months.
Rossiter has smashed his way into the rankings after winning the ACOP Warm-Up event and finishing second in the High Roller, and he'll be looking to improve on his position in the coming weeks after leaping 341 places to sit just behind Karamalikis in 112th.
Things remain unchanged at the top with America's Dan Smith clinging to number one.
