  1. A post on poker forum Two Plus Two earlier this week by German high stakes pro Tobias Duthweiler detailing a six-figure confiscation of funds by GGPoker has prompted an official response from the online poker site. On August 10, Duthweiler, who is also known by his screen names ‘dudd1’ on PokerStars and ‘Ben ABC’ on GGPoker, took to the online poker forum to explain how he came to have a $180,000 balance confiscated by GGPoker. The post sparked a conversation, not just in the Two Plus Two forums but also spilling into social media, where players have been weighing in for days about the situa
  2. Over the course of the 2020 World Series of Poker, PocketFives will be checking in with Chris Moorman and Katie Lindsay as they chase down WSOP glory. This is Episode 2 of The House of Moorman. Chris Moorman arrived in Nuevo Vallarta, Mexico with his computer, his golf clubs, and some of the necessities of life in early August set to grind some of the last flights of the World Series of Poker Online Millionaire Maker flights. He and Connor Drinan actually left Las Vegas before the WSOP.com schedule wrapped with the intention of using the Millionaire Maker as the jumping-off point of what
  3. Ajay Chabra entered Tuesday’s $1500 Limit Hold’em Championship with 11 cashes through the international WSOP Online 2020 Series on GGPoker with four of those cashes coming in top-ten finishes. Chabra cracked the top ten again on Tuesday night, and this time he was able to convert on his deep run for a tournament win and his first career World Series of Poker gold bracelet. Event #72 drew 337 players for a total prize pool of $480,225. Chabra, who entered the final table sixth in chips, spun his stack up to take down the tournament’s top prize of $77,475. After 15 minutes of nine-handed p
  4. When the complete schedule for the online iteration of the 2020 World Series of Poker was announced, the high-stakes tournament pros from around the world cleared their calendar to be available for the $25K NLHE Poker Players Championship. Sure, this year’s PPC wouldn’t have the traditional variety of mixed games as the live version in Las Vegas has in year’s past, but this tournament had the biggest buy-in of the entire 2020 WSOP and gave players a shot at the largest first-place payday outside of the Main Event. Now, only nine players from the star-studded field of 407 remains. It's a mix
  5. A little over three years ago, Shoma Ishikawa had never really played poker. He had friends who played and might have seen some of it on TV or YouTube. He'd just never given it much thought. That all changed in March 2017 when some of those friends invited the then 22-year-old to play in their game. Now 25, Ishikawa has already done something that many poker players spend their lives dreaming about. On July 19, as the World Series of Poker Online events on GGPoker kicked off, Ishikawa outlasted 2,213 players in Event #34 ($525 Super Turbo Bounty NLHE Six Max) to win his first WSOP bracelet.
  6. In 2017, Yunpeng Zhou and Rong Long went heads up in the 2017 World Series of Poker China Main Event to become the first pair of Chinese players in WSOP history to go heads-up with a bracelet on the line. On Sunday night, two players from China worked their way through a field of nearly 45,000 in Event #71 ($50 Big 50) to get heads-up for a bracelet with Huahuan Feng conquering all to take home more than $200,000 and the sixth bracelet in Chinese history. The Big 50 had 15 starting flights and was the lowest buy-in event in the 51-year history of the Series. Feng was in control when the
  7. No matter what happens, the 2020 World Series of Poker Online Main Event will have the largest prize pool in online poker history. The $5,000 buy-in event, which has 22 starting flights, features a $25 million guarantee, allowing it to surpass the 2018 partypoker MILLIONS which had a $21,780,000 prize pool. Slapping a guarantee on an event is one thing, putting enough butts in seats to make it is another entirely. To avoid an overlay, the tournament needs to draw 5,264 entries or an average of 240 per flight. PocketFives will be keeping an eye on this tournament as it pushes through the 22

  12. Heading into Wednesday's World Series of Poker Online event, Ireland's Toby Joyce had cashed in 11 previous WSOP events this year but had only found himself anywhere near a final table once. That was in Event #35 ($5,000 PLO Championship) back on July 21 when he finished 13th. Joyce not only made the final table of Event #66 ($800 PLO) on Wednesday night, but he navigated his way from a middle-sized stack when the final table began all the way to the title. It was 15 minutes after players first got seated at the final tabel that one of the final nine was required to give up his seat. Wil
  13. Sitting dead center in the middle of the pack when the final table began, Dmytro Bystrovzorov needed 90 minutes to work his way through his final eight opponents to win World Series of Poker Online Event #65 ($600 NLHE Deepstack Championship). The Ukrainian collected $227,906 and his first WSOP bracelet for the win. His only live result was a $555 payout from the Spanish Poker Festival Main Event in Rozvadov in February. The event drew 2,911 runners to create a $1,659,270 prize pool. Ten minutes into the final table, Giovani Torre opened to 1,200,000 from UTG and Bystrovzorov and Christo
  14. Ivan Zufic came to the final table of Event #63 ($500 Mini Main Event) of the 2020 World Series of Poker Online with the chip lead and turned that lead into gold as he outlasted his final eight opponents to win $843,460 and his first career WSOP bracelet. The tournament drew a total of 15,205 across multiple starting flights with 2,055 of them returning to play Day 2 on Sunday. It took more than 16 hours to play down to a winner including more than two hours for the final table alone. Fedor Kruse came to the final table with the third shortest stack but had already picked up a $188,000 s
  15. Bradley Ruben has had a successful World Series of Poker Online so far this summer, with six cashes, including the final table of Event #27 ($1,050 PLO Bounty). He finished fourth in that event for nearly $40,000, but on Sunday he was able to get to the top, taking home his first WSOP bracelet, and over $220,000 to boot. The final table ended up starting short-handed with eight players, as there was a double elimination with ten players left. At virtually the same time, Simon Mason busted in 10th place, while Adam Hendrix quickly followed him out the door in ninth place. This left Canadian
  16. To the surprise of absolutely nobody, the delayed final table of the World Series of Poker Online $25,000 Poker Players Championship included some of the best poker players in the world. High regulars like Jason Koon, a former #1-ranked online poker player in Chris Hunichen, and respected grinders like Shinkar Pillai, Aleksejs Ponakovs and Brazilian superstar Bruno Botteon were all chasing their first career WSOP bracelet and the $1.8 million first place prize. None of them it seemed were ready for the locomotive that was Christian Rudolph. The German poker pro eliminated five of his final
  17. Just a few minutes before the sun rose on August 6, Eoghan O'Dea was heads-up for a World Series of Poker bracelet against Nital Jethalal in Event #51 ($400 Pot Limit Omaha). The two battled for 10 minutes before O'Dea vanquished Jethalal and relegated him to the runner-up club to lay claim to his first WSOP bracelet. And then he texted his dad. "We're one all." In 1998, Donnacha O'Dea, Eoghan's father, won a WSOP bracelet by beating Johnny Chan heads up in a $1,500 Pot Limit Omaha tournament. Eoghan just wanted to let his dad know that he had evened the score. At the moment the text
  18. Saturday was a light day on the 2020 PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker slate with the $5,200 buy-in Main Event set to take center stage on Sunday. Just six events played down to a winner with yet another player adding their name to the three-time winner club. Russian Andrei 'Premove' Skvortsov took down Event #67 High ($1,050 NLO8) for a $35,886.02 score and his third career victory. This is his second WCOOP title in No Limit Omaha 8-or-better after he won the $5.50 buy-in event in 2018. That same year he won his first WCOOP title in a $109 buy-in 2-7 Single Draw tournament.
