DanielOlaf returned to the top of the leaderboard over the weekend, but only by the narrowest of margins. The Mexican claimed 265 points from Round 23, 16 more than previous pacesetter javy1409, to edge four points clear of his afore-named American rival at the summit.

The pair succeeded in putting distance between themselves and the chasing pack. Indeed, a 104-point gap now separates javy1409 from third-placed MPear11, whose latest set of picks rendered only 130 points, with England's eyinmisan a further 114 points back in fourth.

With just seven rounds remaining, it's all to play for.
