David climbs up World Ranking List

David Powell has jumped up the World Ranking List to now be 265. Previously he was sitting between 305-315 but with a strong win against much higher ranked opponent at last month's World Team Cup and a few players dropping off list due to no activity in last 6 months, David has improved ranking. 

David, and all Australian players find it difficult to play many International Tournaments due to lack of funds therefore attaining a ranking that actually reflects their standard is unrealistic. On the flipside, if all Chinese, Korean and Japanese players who were are not in their National Teams had opportunity to play tournaments, players like David would struggle to be in top 500.
