Hosted by PocketFives President and Editor in Chief Lance Bradley and poker writer Matt Clark, The Fives runs each week and covers the latest poker news, preview upcoming events, and debate the hottest topics in poker.
Lance and Matt return this week to talk about the success of the partypoker MILLIONS North America event and the underwhelming turnout for the World Poker Tour Elite Poker Championship at the Bellagio in Las Vegas. Recorded before the European Poker Tour Main Event played down to a winner, Matt talks about what a win for Ole Schemion might mean for him and it puts him in position to be the first player to grab all three legs of poker’s Triple Crown in the same year.
Earlier this week, former #1-ranked online poker player Patrick Leonard released his own version of the live power rankings. Lance and Matt debate the merits of Leonard’s list, get into some of the snubs and put out a list of their own top five. They wrap things up by talking about the direction Phil Galfond is taking his Run It Once online poker site.
