  1. A cool and calm Friday for the GGPoker Spring Festival saw three high roller events play out to a finish with each winner claiming their maiden GGSF title. Across the three tournaments, $380,000 in prizes was up for grabs with Tomas Jozonis taking home the biggest pay out of the day. Jozonis, a former aspiring beach volleyball star, picked up his first title of the GGPoker Spring Festival. The Lithuanian grinder is no stranger to the high stakes scene with over $3 million in online cashes and just shy of a million in live earnings. The former #1-ranked Lithuanian player bested 114 other en
  2. A super Saturday in the GGPoker Spring Festival saw over $2 million awarded in prizes across six High lebel events. There were three players and two PocketFivers who picked up their maiden GGSF titles whilst Lev Gottlieb captured his third first place finish of the series. It was only two days ago that Pocket Five Senior Writer Jeff Walsh pointed out the rarity of a player winning three titles in the same series like SCOOP 2021 star Dejan Kaladurdevic. Well proverbial lightening has stricken twice as this feat has quickly been emulated over at GG Poker in its spring flagship tournament ser
  3. With the brand new tournament lineup now in full flow, a plethora of PocketFivers have continued to produce excellent results on the virtual felts of 888poker. The Top three earners for March 2021 have recorded combined earnings of over $65,000, which includes eight tournament wins and over 180 tournament cashes. And of course, it was Portugal’s Bruno ‘KeyzerSozePT’ Ferreira that took the top spot yet again. Ferreira has found massive success on 888poker in 2021; topping the most earnings, most cashes, and most wins tables for both January and February. Now, the poker player has completed t
  4. After three days of play, Canadian poker pro Vanessa Kade was crowned the winner of the PokerStars Sunday Million 15th Anniversary for $1.5 million. One of Pokerstars' most coveted and prestigious online poker tournaments, the event saw a total of 69,876 entries from 45,765 unique players making a total prize pool of $13,975,200. Despite this edition of the PokerStars Sunday Million Anniversary falling short of last year's $18,603,200 prize pool, two seven-figure payouts and all the bragging rights were still there for the taking. One of the big stories of heading into the final day cent
  5. In a few short weeks, players on the European and global networks of 888poker will be battling it out for a slice of mouth-watering guarantees, prestigious titles and online poker glory with three WPTDeepStacks online series coming to the virtual felts of 888poker in April. The online poker platform has had a massive makeover in the last few months. Their new Made to Play platform and online tournament revamp has been at the heart of these changes. And now 888poker players around the world will have the opportunity to play for massive cash prizes and a WPTDeepStacks title on the site.
  6. With the tournament changes at 888poker in full swing over, the company has pulled back the curtain to show how and why all of this change came about within one of the world's longest running online poker rooms. Building on the introduction of the Made to Play platform in October 2020, the latest iteration of the 888poker multi-table tournament offering provides another important step towards giving more fun poker experiences to the player base. The company asked their ambassadors to reach out to their followers on social media to find out what gets their blood pumping and the type of expe
  7. A host of tournament changes hit the online felt over at 888poker last week, with more recreational-friendly options and bigger prize pools up for grabs. The 888poker revamp and rebrand has started to make its way through the pokerverse and one person who’s excited to get in amongst the action is online crusher, former #1-ranked PocketFiver Chris Moorman. The Englishman capped off 2020 by taking down the High Roller MILLION$ at GGPoker for a cool $251,828 and now has his eyes on the prize(s) that are now up for grabs at 888poker. “888poker is going to become a much better place for MTT p
  8. Satellite tournaments give poker players with modest bank rolls an opportunity to play outside of their usual comfort zone. And with the latest tournament changes at 888poker, MTT grinders will want to find out how they can get in amongst the action on the cheap. Turning a small buy-in into a huge score is the poker dream with the most famous example being of course, Chris Moneymaker. The man who sparked the poker boom of the noughties qualified into the 2003 World Series of Poker Main Event for a mere $87 and the rest, they say, is history. With 888poker adding $500,000 in guarantees to
  9. Recreational poker players will be wanting to take advantage of the new changes to the tournament schedule on 888poker. The poker platform has wiped the slate clean and rebranded their entire tournament collection to create better options for the more casual poker player. 888poker players have seen a plethora of changes made as of late, most notably with the introduction of the Made to Play platform which took place late last year.

  10. Whether watching some of the biggest names in poker at the World Series of Poker, Poker After Dark or any other poker-related show, recreational poker players from all over the world have had the same thought on at least one occasion – "I’d love to test myself and battle against the pros." If this resonates and hits home, then take note that 888poker is giving all home game heroes and casual poker room players the chance to do just that – battle against the pros. It has never been easier to do so either, there’s no need to navigate a collection of satellite tournaments to get this opportuni
  11. Any person starting off in poker dreams of having their own Moneymaker-esque moment, turning a small buy-in into a life-changing score. However, with the change in the poker landscape over the last 15 years, it now takes a lot more to get to the next level. Long gone are the days where reviewing a couple poker hands would give you the tools needed to ascend from the low stakes to the big games in a timely fashion. Nowadays, to reach that level, poker players who predominantly play at the low stakes need to develop a deep understanding of the game and put in the work off the felt, if they wa
  12. It was another superb month on 888poker's virtual tables for PocketFivers with the top ten earners collectively winning $122,201.36. The month saw 888poker's XL Winter Series which was capped off by the $500k GTD Main Event PKO which saw one PocketFiver take home the biggest score of their online career on the platform. It was a December to remember for 'MflushN' with over $30,000 in prize winnings to scoop the title of top earner on 888poker for the last month of the year. Ending the year with a bang, the Brazilian bagged a $29,938 payday and posted his biggest win on 888poker with a fourt

  14. Sao Paulo born Vivian Saliba has grown up with poker around her, first playing the game at 12-years-old and then accompanying her father to card rooms for the first time at the age of 17. Primarily a Pot Limit Omaha cash game player, but no stranger to poker tournaments, the Brazilian has put in strong performances during various years of the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas. Most notably in 2017, she made the money in three No Limit Hold’em events and two in her specialized game of Pot Limit Omaha. But it would be a PLO hand, a game that has allowed her to amass a small fortune, that
  15. Chris Moorman is without a doubt one of the best ever to take up online tournament poker. His resumé is the envy of many and is littered with success after success. With a World Series of Poker bracelet, countless online Triple Crowns, and over $16 million in online total earnings, the Englishman has done it all on the virtual felt. But even in his illustrious poker career, the former #1-ranked PocketFiver has encountered a couple of hands that have kept him lying awake late at night. Despite trying to stress the importance of not dwelling on hands in poker, a moment Moorman immediately lo
  16. It’s no secret that, for many, Halloween will be celebrated differently this year, with some of the world still in some form of lockdown as countries look to overcome coronavirus. Whether the thought of no trick-or-treaters brings you a smile or a tear, we can all say that we have at least one fond memory of the ‘spookiest’ day of the year. And after speaking with 888poker ambassadors Kara Scott and Sofia Lövgren, it is abundantly clear that they too look forward to the 31st of October. For Scott, growing up in Northern Canada meant that by October 31st, it was already way below zero and
