  1. 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. The
  2. Benny Glaser added another piece to his poker resume on Tuesday winning a third PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker title. Glaser, who also owns five Spring Championship of Online Poker titles, defeated Japan's Naoya 'nkeyno' Kihara in Event #55 High ($2,100 HORSE) to win $43,055. This marks the third consecutive year that Glaser has conquered a WCOOP event. In 2018, he won a $55 Six Max Pot Limit Omaha event, and in 2019, he took down a $109 Razz title. Almost as if required, the biggest winner on the day came from Brazil. Vitor Peixoto Moreira defeated Philipp Gruissem heads
  3. Summers in the Ukraine aren't bad. They're not great either. Highs of 80 degrees fahrenheit in July and August is comfortable, but it's not exactly vacation-worthy. So when the World Series of Poker announced there would be 54 WSOP bracelets available to be won on GGPoker, Dmytro Bystrovzorov decided to take a working vacation to Mexico. Bystrovzorov and his girlfriend made the nearly 7,000 mile trip from their native Gorlovka to Mexico in part because the weather is so nice, but also because it was an optimal choice to grind as many WSOP events as possible. "I stayed in Mexico for about

A battle of two former #1-ranked PocketFivers highlighted Sunday's PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker action and resulted in one of the best online poker players in the world winning a WCOOP title for the second time in two days. Sweden's 'Lena900' defeated Russia's 'veeea' heads up in Event #44 High ($2,100 NLHE) to earn $80,642.40. On Saturday, 'Lena900' topped the 173-entry field in Event #38 ($5,200 NLHE PKO High Roller) for his first WCOOP win of the year. The Swedish superstar sits atop the PocketFives all-time earnings list and is the only player to have won more than $20

  6. For the last six months, Brazilian Bruno Botteon has been on an absolute rampage on the online felt and on Thursday the #3-ranked player in the world took down a PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker title for the second time in his career. Botteon topped the 192-entry field, including eliminating Gediminas ‘Gedis92’ Uselis heads up, in Event #36 High ($2,100 NLHE Midweek Freeze) to earn the title and $80,642.40. His first WCOOP win came last year when he took down a $530 Heads Up NLHE Turbo PKO Zoom event. Uselis earned $62,088.88 for his performance while Mike Watson finished
  7. Conor Beresford has held down the #1 spot on the PocketFives Rankings since mid-May but on Wednesday he added something to his list of accomplishments that has been missing until now: a PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker title. Beresford beat fellow Brit Luke 'Bit2Easy' Reeves heads-up to win Event #33 High ($5,200 NLHE High Roller) for a $162,674.33 score and his first WCOOP title. Beresford's previous best WCOOP finish came in 2013 when he finished fourth in a $109 WCOOP Kick-Off event. Reeves wound up earning $125,931.84 for his runner-up finish. German 'Loks82' outlasted 4
  8. Adrian Mateos captured the third PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker title on Sunday. On Monday, he won his second title in as many days after chopping the Event #25 High ($25,000 8 Max NLHE, Super High Roller Sunday Slam) with Fedor Holz. Mateos earned $543,685.63 after the deal with Holz and now has four career WCOOP titles. Holz, who won his second career World Series of Poker bracelet on Saturday, had to settle for runner-up status and a $515,293.82 payday. English grinder Luke 'Bit2Easy' Reeves took home $353,117.47 for coming in third place. One-time November Niner Sylvai
  9. Event # The $500 The Closer [Last Chance] tournament drew 4,012 to generate a prize pool of $1,905,700. Two-time World Series of Poker Bracelet winner Shankar Pillai and three-time WSOP Bracelet winner Michael Gathy both found their way into the final three in this massive field. And in the end it was Gathy who came out on top to earn a first-place prize worth $260,504 and his fourth WSOP Bracelet. Gathy already had an impressive WSOP resume coming into this event. The Belgium native had 32 WSOP cashes worth $1,874,375 before Sunday’s big score. His last bracelet and biggest career cash came
  10. For the third consecutive year, Adrian Mateos stood tall at the end of a PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker event on Sunday and added yet another accolade to his already impressive poker resume. The Spanish superstar beat out 200 other players to win Event #28 High ($2,100 NLHE PKO Freezeout Sunday Cooldown) for more than $81,000 including $45,234.37 from bounties. The final bounty Mateos collected belonged to Hungarian 'kZhh' who earned just a tad more than $50,000. Stefan 'mindgamer' Jedlicka earned the bronze medal and almost $42,000. Mateos previous two WCOOP titles came i
  11. Friday was a relatively quiet day on the 2020 PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker schedule. Just three new champions were crowned on Friday with all of them coming from Event #16. Russia's 'LeslieGroves' beat out 94 other players in Event #16 ($10,300 NLHE PKO High Roller) to win their first WCOOP title and over $263,000. The win came with $111,206.12 from the prize pool, but the unknown player also walked away with $152,421.87 in bounties. The last bounty collected came from runner-up Rodrigo 'seijistar' Seiji. The Brazilian grinder won $11,205.97 from the prize pool and an addit
  12.     Michelle Shah only got to spend XX minutes at the final table. Molinelli raised to 220,XXX from the hijack before Shag moved all in from the cutoff for XXXXXX. Molinelli flipped over [ah][qs] and Shah discovered she was racing with [8d][8h]. The [as][5h][2s] flop moved Molinelli in front and Shah found no help on the [6s] turn or [5c] river and was eliminated in ninth place. A half-hour later another race ended a second player's run. Lucas Hafner raised to 240,000 from the button with [as][ks] before Pavel Plusev re-raised to 1,800,000 with [5c][5d]. Plesuv called all in

  15. Over the course of the 2020 World Series of Poker, PocketFives has been checking in with Chris Moorman and Katie Lindsay as they chase down WSOP glory. This is Episode 5 of The House of Moorman. In the days before Black Friday, American politicians loved to get all cute when discussing the evils of online gaming. "Click a mouse, lose a house!" became a popular refrain amongst the biggest proponents of a ban on online gaming. Well, during their recent trip to Mexico to play the 2020 World Series of Poker Online, the Moormans did the exact opposite, both literally and figuratively. Chris M
  16. From 5,802 entries over 23 total flights in the 2020 World Series of Poker Online Main Event, former #1-ranked PocketFiver Bryan Piccioli holds the chip lead heading into Day 3 action. Just 38 of the 1,145 players who started Day 2 managed to work their way through Sunday's play. Piccioli, who held down the #1 spot on PocketFives for two weeks in May 2011, finished Day 2 with 18,417,494 and more than 2.5 million more than any other player. The 38 players will return to the felt on Saturday to play down to a winner. Thanks to the record-setting turnout, the prize pool swelled to $27,559,5

  18. 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 st
  19. 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. T
  20. [caption id="" align="alignnone" width="640"] Chris Moorman has finally crossed his name off of the 'Best Players Without a Bracelet' list after capturing the K Six Max on Friday (WSOP photo)[/caption] Wow, what a day. Friday at the 2017 World Series of Poker saw the all-time leading money winner in online tournaments win his very first bracelet, having endured multiple runner-up finishes over the years. Two more bracelet winners were also crowned, two new events got going, and three more tournaments chalked up another day. Oh, and Daniel Negreanu is close to his seventh bracelet yet again.
