  • The #1 Number One

    Though tens of thousands of players have made their way into the PocketFives Rankings, just 60 different players have climbed to the top and held the #1 spot. This list includes some of the most respected and feared players in the game, spanning multiple eras of online poker. There is no doubt that all 60 of these players are great - but who is the greatest #1 of all time? It’s a question that’s never been asked.

     

    Until now.

     

    And the answer to that question is entirely up to you. Over the next 30 days, poker fans will have the opportunity to predict and help determine who the #1 Number One is in our head-to-head bracket style competition.

  • The 60 #1’s have been seeded and placed in a bracket based on how many times they hit #1, how long they held onto the top spot, their career online earnings, and how many Triple Crowns they have won. With 60 players, four have received first round byes - they are Cliff ’JohnnyBax’ Josephy, Ari Engel, Shaun Deeb and Chris ‘moorman1’ Moorman, all of whom have received the Global Poker Awards PocketFives Legacy Award.

     

    The player who wins the championship round earns not only the right to call themselves the #1 Number One, but also the championship belt that comes with it.
