Will Failla final tables Venetian DeepStack Extravaganza Main Event.

The current BLUFF Power Rankings change from week to week but the man leading the world for quite some time is still Daniel Negreanu. Only Marvin Rettenmaier or Joe Kuether have a chance to catch Negreanu with a single big win.

Jeremy Ausmus climbed the highest, three spots, from last week after winning the latest Venetian DeepStack Extravaganza Main Event. He earned $148,694 and 154 POY points at final table with Will Failla, Ryan Welch, Seth Berger and BLUFF contributor Dan O’Brien finished in 11th place.

Ravi Raghavan traveled to Los Angeles for the World Poker Tour’s LA Poker Classic Main Event. He put in a deep run to finish in 20th place for $42,550 and 30 POY points. The LAPC was Raghavan’s first cash in 2014 after a strong fall of 2013 that saw him cash five times, make three final tables and earn over $300,000.

Paul Volpe was 15th in the rankings two weeks ago, dropped to outside the top 20 last week and made his way back to the 19th spot with his trip to the LAPC. He won the Bobby HOff Commemorative event to pocket $127,490 and 170 POY points. The final table featured Andrew Lichtenberger, Tyler Reiman, Jacob Schindler and Galen Hall.

Matthew Waxman earned the final spot in the top 20 this week because, you guessed it, he showed up for the LAPC. The Florida native finished in 26th place for $36,400 and 30 POY points. It was Waxman’s first cash in 2014 outside Florida after attending the WPT Lucky Hearts Poker Open and the Isle Poker Classic.
