Ivey, Mercier, Marchese top December ranks

  • Tom Marchese and Vanessa Selbst move up 3 spots to 3rd and 5th respectively
  • Grinder drops from 3rd to 7th
  • From collaborator (and Bluff Magazine Editor) Lance Bradley: “The list has five new players from the start of 2010, and it’s a reflection of how quickly things can change in poker. That being said, the two constants continue to be Ivey and Mercier, who are simply dominating. Maybe Mercier can continue his strong play and push Ivey off the top spot in 2011.”
