  1. Yuri Dzivielevski has had himself a pretty decent start to the 2020 PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker. The former PocketFives #1-ranked player won his second career WCOOP title on Wednesday. On Sunday, he doubled his pleasure by becoming the first player to pick up two titles this year after denying a fellow Brazilian that same distinction. Dzivielevski, who won Event #9 High ($1,050 NL 2-7 Single Draw) on Wednesday, beat Murilo 'Muka82' Figueiredo heads up on Saturday to win Event #20 High ($1,050 HORSE) for $31,115. Had those two positions been reversed, Figueiredo would have
  2. There's very little that Andras 'probirs' Nemeth has not accomplished in his online poker career. The former #1-ranked PocketFiver has amassed more than $17.5 million in online earnings and won nearly every title out there. Except one. Heading into the 2020 PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker, the Hungarian poker pro had never won a WCOOP title. That ended on Thursday night as Nemeth beat William 'hellzito' Arruda heads-up to win Event #15 High ($530 NLHE w/rebuys) for $79,655.48 and that first WCOOP title. Russian crusher Arsenii 'josef_shvejk' Karmatckii beat out 451 other en
  3.     Michelle Shah only got to spend XX minutes at the final table. Molinelli raised to 220,000 from the hijack before Shah moved all in from the cutoff for 1,810,581. Molinelli called and 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

  5. Scotland's Ludovic Geilich made the absolute most of the light schedule on Day 4 of the 2020 PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker. Geilich beat out a final table that included some of the best players in the world to lay claim to his second WCOOP title and nearly a quarter-million dollars. Geilich outlasted Timothy Adams, Filipe Oliviera, Thomas Mühlöcker, Mikita Badziakouski, former 1-ranked online poker player Chris Hunichen, and eventual runner-up Ole Schemion to win Event #10 High ($10,300 High Roller). Geilich earned $238,966.30 for the victory. His WCOOP title came in 2016 wh
  6. Five years Yuri 'theNERDguy' Dzivielevski held down the #1 ranking on PocketFives.com on two separate occasions. On Tuesday, the Brazilian, who is ranked #13 in the world, earned the second PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker title after beating a final table full of some of the best poker players in the world. Dzivielevski won Event #9 High ($1,050 NL 2-7 Single Draw) for $21,937.50. The final table included third place finisher Luke 'lb6121' Schwartz, and runner-up Benny 'RunGodLike' Glaser.

  8. 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 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 Mo

  10. Trygve Leite entered the World Series of Poker $300 Double Stack No Limit Hold’em event with 14 career WSOP cashes including five in this year’s Online Series on GGPoker. Earlier this month he finished in 12th place in the $300 Monster Stack for $6,637 but did considerably better on Saturday with a first-place finish, a $130,100 and a WSOP gold bracelet. Event #75 drew 3,552 players to yield a total prize pool of $991,008. Before Saturday’s win, the biggest recorded cash of Leite’s career came in a PPPoker Live High Roller event in Manila last February for $23,998. Leite took down the fi

  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. Thi Truong worked her way through 972 players on Thursday in Event #74 ($1,500 Pot Limit Omaha) of the 2020 World Series of Poker Online, including a final table that included highly-ranked online poker players, an online poker site ambassador, and a player who has already captured a WSOP bracelet this year, to win her first career WSOP bracelet. Truong, who started the final table with the biggest stack, decided to put that stack to work. Just six minutes after the final table began, Truong raised from the small blind to 360,000 and Johannes Toebbe called from the big. The flop came [poker
  15. Denis Strebkov and Shaun Deeb sit firmly atop the PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker all-time leaderboard with nine and eight titles respectively. The group right behind is growing and coming hard though. On Thursday night, Russia's Andrey Zaichenko moved into a tie for third place all-time after capturing his fifth career WCOOP title. He's now tied with former #1-ranked PocketFiver Dan Kelly and Dzmitry Urbanovich. Zaichenko's win came in Event #62 High ($1,050 Stud Hi Lo) where he outlasted 100 other players to earn the victory and $24,745. Zaichenko, Kelly, and Urbanovich may h
  16. When it was announced that 54 events of the 2020 World Series of Poker would be held on GGPoker, it meant that for the very first time players outside of the United States could compete for a gold bracelet online. It also opened the door for elite online poker players all over the world to bracelet chase without having to make the trek to Las Vegas. With that in mind, prior to the start of the series, PocketFives staff attempted to make some predictions of players that we thought would make a serious impact on the 2020 WSOP. We dove into the player pools from the online poker powerhouse count
  17. 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
  18. Adrian Mateos captured the third PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker title on Sunday. Just 24 hours later, 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.   The other

  20. Superstars in the highest stakes tournaments around the world, online grinders working their way up from $20 tournaments, or home game regulars who have had to explain the rules of No Limit Texas Hold’em to a new player more than once, all owe a debt of gratitude to Mike Sexton. The voice of the game and the face of the industry, Sexton meant more to poker than can possibly be measured. On Sunday, Sexton died after a battle with prostate cancer. He was 72 years old. An invaluable asset to the poker community, Sexton was a World Poker Tour co-commentator, World Series of Poker bracelet wi
  21. Fedor Holz is known to many as simply, "The Prince". But on Sunday, Holz captured the top crown all for himself after beating Sergi Reixach and Brunno Botteon to win the 2020 World Series of Poker $25,000 Heads Up No Limit Hold'em title. The win is the second bracelet for the former #1-ranked PocketFiver and marks the second time that he won the highest buy-in event on the schedule. In 2016, Holz won the $111,111 buy-in High Roller for One Drop for his first career bracelet. Sunday's action saw Holz, Reixach, Botteon, and Oktay Kahyaoglu return to the felt following a five-day break. Hol
