  1. The month of October was scary good for PocketFivers over on the 888poker tables. In addition to racking up wins during the Millions Superstorm and taking advantage of the Early Bird Rakeback program, 888’s new ‘Made To Play’ mobile platform was rolled out at the end of the month giving players a brand new experience when it comes to playing poker on the go. No one had a better month on 888poker than former #1-ranked PocketFiver Aaron ‘aguskb’ Gustavson who, while playing under his screen name ‘YoureMagical’, took the title of Top Earner for October with a total of $21,526. Gustavos, who won the EPT London Main Event back in 2009 for more than $1.35 million, spent his time crushing the mid-stakes MTT schedule. He locked up 18 total results including a spotlight score in the 888Millions Sunday Special for $13,899. Gustavson found the podium four times, including a victory in the October 8 edition of the 888Millions $33 Big Fish for $1,959. That was the difference for him when it came to taking the leaderboard top spot and finishing in second place. However, it’s just a drop in the bucket for his outstanding online career in which he had earned more than $5.1 million to date. Michael ‘skeldon87’ Skeldon racked up 26 cashes for a total of $20,574.15 on 888poker to capture the number two spot. He kicked off the month with a pair of wins, the first of which came on October 1 when he took down the 888Millions Mini PKO 8-Max for $3,562. Three days later he grabbed gold again in the Mini Mega Deep for another $3,140. For his third victory of the month, Skeldon went the distance in the October 14 edition of the $10,000 Mega Deep which was good for $3,520. The mid-stakes grinder took home seven four-figure scores and an equal amount of podium finishes all of which has helped him to a career-high spot of #436 in the world, #40 in all of the UK. At the end of next month, he’s expected to soar past $700,000 in career online earnings. Rounding out the top three in earnings is another former #1-ranked PocketFiver in Sweden’s Anton ‘VnilaVader’ Herrmann. Herrmann put in slightly less volume than those players above him, and certainly less than what he did back in 2014 when he sat atop the online poker world. But he did manage to pick up two wins in his 13 total results which helped him take home a total of $18,716 for the month. Herrmann first knocked out the competition in the October 4 edition of the 888Millions Sunday Challenge PKO for $6,403 and then two days later grabbed the $3,438 first-place prize in the 888Millions Mega Deep. He added three more four-figure scores in the month and then called it a day, wrapping up his month with his final result on October 18. 888poker Top 10 Earners October 2020 [table id=116 /] For the first time in a number of months, the Most Cashes list has a new name sitting in the top spot. Ecuador’s Marcelo ‘Cheloidpro90’ Navarrete has wrestled the title away from Netherlands’ ‘HeateN’ by racking up 73 total cashes for a total of $3,385. This is a breakout month for Navarrete who has been a member since 2014 and plays mostly small stakes. His effort has made him a ranked player and lifted his total career cashes up over $30,000. Belarus’ ‘Glum’ took the second spot, earning 68 total results for a total of $1,839, five of which were good for wins. He tied ‘HeateN’ who also notched 68 results but took home just a bit more cash by locking up $2,389 and six victories. 888poker Top 10 Most Cashes October 2020 [table id=119 /] Those six victories for ‘HeateN’ was good enough for him to take the #1 spot on the Most Wins list. The grind continues for the micro-stakes crusher as he is just $15,000 away from eclipsing $200,000 in total career earnings. 'Glum's five victories was good enough for second place and following him, there is an extended tie for third place with multiple players able to lock up three victories in October. 888poker Top 10 Most Wins October 2020 [table id=120 /]
  2. After two years of development, 888poker has introduced its brand new mobile poker platform for both iOS and Android. Branded as the “Made To Play” poker platform, the latest overhaul of the 888 software promises a vastly upgraded experience for players, created with user's input and the latest in online poker industry standards. Having discovered that more than 60% of their players get into their games on their smartphones, 888poker decided to make their mobile platform a priority. They have updated the entire design, from lobbies to table layout, to a more sleek portrait mode. The new look allows for users to play as well as scroll through lobbies one-handed, making it easier to get into the action. It also makes it easier to multi-table where users can play up to four tables at a time and jump in and out of the action with a single swipe. The new-look poker lobby is now similar to the rest of 888’s online products, including 888casino and 888sport. This gives players who take part in those other features a seamless experience when they switch back and forth between each activity. 888poker has loaded up the new release with brand new features to keep its customers coming back for more. Gone is the traditional chatbox, replaced by a more modern “emoji display’ which allows people to communicate through a variety of quick pick emojis. ‘Throwables’ add to the fun as players celebrate a big win or a bad beat by hitting their opposition on-screen with virtual objects like an egg, a cupcake, or a snowball. New player tags give players quick reference to the type of player they think they are up against. But behind all the small details which promise to make the mobile experience a more player-friendly experience, 888poker says that the new platform has all of the powerful features necessary for users to customize their own experience from a four-color deck to personalized lobby filters to getting into a pre-defined game of a particular buy-in with the click of a single button. Also new on the platform is ‘The Winner Spinner’ where, twice-a-day, players win prizes with a spin of the virtual wheel. And ‘Gift Drops’ are prizes awarded to players at random times while they are seated at a table. In addition, some of 888poker’s most popular exclusive games are now available across all platforms including SNAP fast-fold poker, where players get moved to a new table with brand new cards as soon as they fold or finish a hand. As well as BLAST Jackpot Sit & Go’s, the short-handed SnG that gives variable prize pools and can award players up to a $1,000,000 top prize. To roll out the new “Made To Play” software, 888poker is giving away more than $1,000,000 in prizes with non-stop freerolls that will hand out $30,000 in prizes every week. There will be daily Happy Hours and Gift Drops every five minutes that will award up to $1,000 each. The new 888poker app is being rolled out to all users and will be able to be downloaded on both iOS and Android.
  3. GGPoker is ready to take another shot. On the heels of their successful GG Series of Poker, the online site has announced their next major, massive online poker series that takes aim at players who enjoy going for the knockout. GGPoker’s Bounty Hunter Series will take place from October 11-25 and guarantee $40 million in total prize money. For two weeks, the GGPoker schedule is absolutely packed with non-stop bounty tournament action with 353 official events and more than 500 total tournaments with side events included. No matter what stakes a player enjoys, there’s a tournament in the schedule with a buy-in (and time) to fit their schedule. The Bounty Hunter Series averages more than 20 tournaments a day with buy-ins that range from at little as $5.25 all the way up to the $10,300 Super MILLION$ Bounty Hunters with $1,000,000 guaranteed, the biggest bounty tournament ever run on the site. Featured Events The schedule is so extensive, it may be hard to figure out a plan of attack on finding the best value. For those who are building a bankroll and enjoy playing at the lower and mid-stakes, one of the events to target is the GGMasters Daily $25, a freezeout tournament that runs at the same time every single day of the series and comes with a $50,000 guarantee. Mid-stakes shot takers have a buffet of $100-$300 tournaments to choose from. One to keep an eye on is the Main Event Special Edition. The tournament, which runs multiple times, comes with a $210 buy-in and a $500,000 guarantee. Additionally, GGPoker’s tentpole tournament, the GGMasters, will run with a $157.50 buy-in and also has a $500,000 guarantee. Of course, GGPoker has not left out the high-rollers. In addition to the Super MILLION$, which runs three times, there is an abundance of tournaments with a buy-in greater than $1,000. The $3,150 Sunday Bounty King High Roller runs multiple times and features a $300,000 guarantee, one of the biggest guarantees of the series. Another feature of the series comes in the form of speed of play. For those that just don’t have the time to grind out a standard tournament, the Bounty Hunter Series features “Speed Racer” tournaments at multiple buy-in levels. These hyper-turbo tournaments start players with just 10 big blinds and provide the same knockout action in a fraction of the time. $100K Leaderboard While it may be daunting to think about grinding an entire schedule that has hundreds of events, those that do it and do so successfully will be rewarded with a piece of $100,000 in additional prizes. GGPoker has brought back their $100,000 Leaderboard for the Bounty Hunter Series which will split the six-figure sum between the top 100 performing players. Those looking to battle in the leaderboard best not take their time getting in on the action though as points begin to be earned on day one, October 11, where there are 29 events scheduled. To take a look at the entire GGPoker Bounty Hunters Series, visit their website or download the client.
  4. During the month of September, PocketFivers continued to grind and thrive in the midst of the 888poker Millions Superstorm. With the bulk of the $8 million in total guaranteed prize pools up for grabs last month, players at every level were able to find no shortage of value and bankroll boosting opportunities. One of the biggest beneficiaries of all the action on 888poker was Ukraine’s ‘yarik1903’ who grabbed the top spot on the Top Earners list for the month of September. The former top-100 ranked player put in the bulk of his volume in the last week of the month and scored big with a victory in the September 27 edition of the $100,000 GTD 888Millions Sunday Special for $19,350. Add to that a runner-up finish in the $33 888Millions Sunday Big Fish for $2,821 and that amounts to the lion’s share of his $23,397 total monthly earnings. Although ‘yarik1903’ grinds less volume now than when he did when he was ranked #26 in the world back in 2014, his monthly haul was enough to help him leap to over $2.6 million in career online earnings. Cambodia’s ‘Kortex_67’ finished in second place on the 888poker Top Earners list playing under his 888 screen name ‘Creative.’. The online grinder amassed a monthly total of $22,109 to help him climb to become the top player in his country and hit a career-high ranking of #392 in the world. ‘Kortex_67’ took down the September 13 edition of the $100,000 GTD 888Millions Sunday Mega Deep for $18,890 and followed that up with a runner-up finish in the September 27 running of the 888Millions Sunday Challenge PKO for another $2,567. If he continues to put in the same amount of volume, there a good chance he’ll be able to hit the $51,000 he needs to eclipse the $500,000 lifetime total mark by the end of the year. The top 3 Top Earners is rounded out by former worldwide #1-ranked Fabrizio ‘SixthSenSe19’ Gonzalez who took home $19,375 from 888poker in September. The top-tier pro from Uruguay simply hasn’t been playing very much online poker over the past year, having already made more than $7.7 million in his esteemed career. But last month he decided to take a couple of shots during the Superstorm and walked away with a victory in the September 13 edition of the $100,000 GTD 888Millions Sunday Special for $19,350, which was essentially the totality of his earnings for the month. 888poker Top 10 Earners September 2020 [table id=113 /] For the third month in a row, the Netherlands ‘HeateN’ topped the Most Cashes list for the month of September. His 70 total cashes is a bit of a drop from his volume and results in recent months, but it was still enough to get the job done to be #1. The small-stakes grinder grabbed two gold medals and took home a total of $4,608. ‘HeateN’ held off another well-known name on the Most Cashes list as Russia’s ‘Neverhood007’ racked up 61 cashes and three wins for a total of $1,899 to grab the number two spot. Brazil's Daniel ‘dandeprimo’ Pedro de Primo Santos tied with ‘Neverhood007’ with 61 cashes, but was just slightly outearned taking home $1,783.28 in the month. 888poker Top 10 Most Cashes September 2020 [table id=114 /] There was also a tie atop the Most Wins list as both Sweden’s ‘Mr.kantarell’ and ‘Kotofei5’ from the Republic of Moldova picked up five gold medals in September. With 30 total scores, ‘Mr.kantarell’ picked up the win 16% of the time and racked up $3,460 in the month. ‘Kotofei5’ earned money 21 times and his five wins represented a nearly 24% victory-when-cashing rate and helped the small-stakes grinder to $1,226 in total earnings. 888poker Top 10 Most Wins September 2020 [table id=112 /]
  5. Poker players in Asian markets are about to get the opportunity to play for their share of World Poker Tour glory - and $100 million HKD in guaranteed prize pools - thanks to the tour's partnership with Natural8. WPT Asia Online is a 22-event series, running from October 3 - 22 featuring tournaments which are restricted to players in Asian markets and includes various game formats, multiple leaderboards, and the single biggest online poker tournament guarantee in the region's history. The WPT Asia Main Event has a $10 million HKD guarantee and a $10,000 HKD buy-in. There are 22 starting flights beginning on October 18 with the final day scheduled for October 25. There are also National Championship events for Vietnam, Korea, Philippines, Taiwan, Cambodia, Japan, and Macau. The buy-in and guarantee for each of these events is in the host country's currency and the eventual champion of each event also earns a WPT Passport valued at HK$23,000. Three separate leaderboards, each covering a single week of play, will give players the opportunity to earn points for their home country. The top 10 players for each country have their total count towards the leaderboard and players who earn at least one leaderboard point for the top-performing country will then play in freeroll tournaments with prizes of $50,000 HKD, $50,000 HKD, and $100,000 HKD.

  6. Just when you thought the schedule of major online poker tournaments was about to take a breath, here comes this Sunday’s slate of events in 888poker’s Millions Superstorm Series. Online grinders take note: September 27 is one of the biggest days in 888poker’s month-long, $8 million guaranteed Millions Superstorm Series. On this one day, there are 15 tournaments, promising nearly $400,000 in total prize money, two of which boast six-figure guarantees. So even though the World Series of Poker Online may be over and the World Championship of Online Poker has crowned its Main Event winner, poker players looking for value and the opportunity to take home a title still have more to play for. Six-Figures On The Line Of course, Sunday is the biggest day of the week in online poker, and this week 888poker is offering a pair of tournaments fit to be a part of the Sunday Majors. The first is the 888 Millions Sunday Special, a $215 buy-in tournament with a $100,000 guarantee. With long levels and 50,000 in starting chips, the Sunday Special promises to live up to its name. Plus, for recent depositors, there is a 30 seat freeroll satellite taking place the day before, so players who plan on making an effort to play in this one can plan ahead and take a shot at a free ticket. Starting just one hour later, is 888poker's marquee weekly tournament, the $109 buy-in $100,000 Mega Deep. The schedule staple often provides five-figure paydays for those that make it to the end and savvy players know that, on occasion, this tournament has the possibility to provide players a little bonus in the form of an overlay. Mid-stakes Menu While it’s true that the biggest buy-in events carry the biggest guarantees of the day, mid-stakes players have more than their share of bankroll boosting opportunities this Sunday. Seven of the 15 tournaments on tap have a buy-in between $20-$55, all with healthy guarantees. But perhaps the best value of all of those tournaments is the $55 buy-in, 888 Millions Mini Sunday Special with its $50,000 guarantee. Even if $55 is slightly out of reach, 888poker is running plenty of $5 satellites to help lower stakes players find their way into the Mini Sunday Special. Plenty of PKOs 888poker has also packed its Sunday schedule with a number of their popular Progressive Knock Out tournaments. Bounty hunters can stay in action all day by playing in any or all of the seven PKO tournaments on the schedule. For those that enjoy playing on the high side, the $88 buy-in PKO 8-Max offers a $15,000 guarantee and the biggest bounties of the day. But, for those who want the same PKO action but at a smaller price point, check out the $7.50 PKO 8-Max with $6,000 up for grabs. The guarantee is roughly half of the larger tournament but at less than 1/10th the price. While Sunday is indeed the biggest day of the week, players can participate in the 888poker Millions Superstorn all the way through Sunday, October 11. 888poker Millions Superstorm Sunday Schedule [table id=108 /]
  7. Ira "Big Jew" Mazie has been around online poker for years, and his experience paid off in a big way on Sunday. He took down the $200k Guaranteed on UltimateBet, which was worth $45k, and defeated a number of P5ers along the way. Among others who were in deep, david_a(4th), Legato(5th), chubbs(6th), jimmie23(7th), and ajones93r(9th) were all at the final table of the event. The Bodog $100k was nearly identical in a number of ways to the aforementioned UB $200k this week. Both tournaments needed 1,000 entrants to hit their guarantee, and both had exactly 864 entrants, leaving the house to cover 13.6% of the prizepool--not a bad overlay at all. Both also were won by P5ers, with fellow P5ers taking five of the six spots between 4th and 9th. The winner was jraye87, who took $25k for first. The other P5ers at the final table were PearlJammer(4th), wayupinya(5th), Papa Bull XL(6th), Huskers20(8th), and sheila12(9th). P5er Gezbar, AKA Kid_Poker47, took down the PokerStars Sunday Million this week with no chop, winning just under $200k for his efforts, which was of course the biggest score by a P5er this weekend. No other members were at the final table of that one, but two final tabled the $350k Guaranteed Sunday Warm Up. Those two were CalBandGreatand flmodesq21, who took 5th and 7th respectively. The other of the three biggest Sunday events, the Full Tilt $400k, also featured two P5ers at the final table, and those two were wake all in(7th) and bigbobm11(8th). The other two Sunday majors featured in this report were home to some excitement, featuring names we all know well. Tmay420(left), ranked in the top 10 ever since PocketFives.com implemented its automated rankings, took part in a heads up chop with his opponent in the $200k Guaranteed Second Chance $200, which netted him over $35k. All the while, he was trying to take down the $200 rebuy as well, and he ended up finishing 7th there. Other P5ers at the Second Chance final table included Gowon, Andy McLEOD, and sirio11, who finished 7th, 8th, and 9th respectively. The other big story involved Andy McLEOD(left), who has been on a tear this entire year and who lost a very long heads up battle against yet another top player, Imper1um(right). Both have been crushing everything lately, so this match had an aura of greatness as soon as it began, and the hype was justified. They also had to work extremely hard to get to the heads up. In addition to Tmay being at the final table, inissint(4th), pbdrunks(5th), stpauli111(6th), and Sluggle(9th) were all there as well. It wasn't an easy crowd at all, but once again these top ranked players showed why they've achieved their status.

  8. It's safe to say that PocketFivers had a big day on Full Tiltthis past Sunday. For Jordan "iMsoLucky0" Morgan (pictured), it was a huge day, as he took down the first prize in the $500k Guaranteed, which was worth over $120k. Meanwhile in the Mulligan, long-time P5er Believer82was the winner of $36k, and koolkeith13, P0KERPR033, and PSBwere the next three finishers. Kasedowgyand pssamitfinished 6th and 7th respectively, rounding out a top 7 that included 6 PocketFives.com members. Other P5ers at the $500k final table this week were Pragerand USCphildo, who took 6th and 8th places. Tournaments that were taken down by non-P5ers included the Absolute$150k, the Bodog$100k, and the PartyPoker$300k. On Absolute, potroast took 4th place, and Imper1umand esattechnearly made it that far, finishing 7th and 8th. On Bodog, o11pokerdrwas the highest P5er to finish when he took 5th place. Joe McGuireand whitey03took 6th and 7th respectively. On Party, Russell99(5th) was the lone player representing P5s at the final table. Allinstevie continued his impressive run on PokerStarsthis weekend with a win in the $200k Guaranteed "Second Chance." Stevie's win was not without obstacles, as he had to take down fellow P5er arzCARDZfanbefore advancing to the heads up match. Gregghmsrwas also in deep in this event, taking 7th place. The Sunday Million and Sunday Warm Up were similar to the tourneys mentioned above from Bodog, Absolute, and PartyPoker. P5er johnsears finished 7th in the Sunday Million, which was worth better than $31k. Xeric(3rd) and Poker Invest(8th) both reached the final table of the Sunday Warm Up and each picked up a nice cash. In the $200R, there were (as always) numerous P5s members in the final stretch. Siphon3511was the highest P5er finisher, taking 2nd overall. Number1pen(pictured) took 3rd, and kwob20, x2then, and emptyseat88were the next three finishers at 4th, 5th, and 6th. Imper1umwent out just before everyone else busted, finishing 8th overall. On UltimateBetthis week, Faralonewas the first palce winner.

  9. Dan "javahound" Tarnopol has been crushing tournaments on PokerStars for the majority of 2007, and this weekend he had his biggest win yet. That win was a first place finish in the $200 rebuy, which was good for $50k. He defeated high stakes guru Dariominieriheads up, after going through a final table that included ranked players lucky sevenand Imper1um. P5er Pass_72 was also at the final table and finished 6th in the event. One other P5er won a big Sunday event this week, and that was ostrichman, who took down the UltimateBet $200k Guaranteed. His final table was also filled with P5s members, including wombat009(3rd), jakz101poker(5th), two8off(7th), TheWacoKidd(8th---this is what he does on days he's not final tabling huge live events), and Kasedowgy(9th). Long time P5s member mrpbroke through with a huge score in the Sunday Million this week after chopping with five others at the final table. He ended up winning $80k after losing the heads up match for the $30k left on the table. Xpugn0was also at the final table and finished 8th. Also on Stars, two more P5ers went deep in the Sunday Warm Up. PSBtook second overall, and BrokenTPotfinished 6th. Gbmantis almost added another major victory to his resume on Sunday, but he had to settle for second in the Sunday Second Chance $200k, which was still worth over $27k. Jurollowas the fourth place finisher in the Second Chance, and P5ers mgmitchand WhoTheHellrounded out the final table, finishing 8th and 9th respectively. Since PocketFives.com is now tracking tournaments on Absolute for the rankings, we're also going to be including their Saturday major in this report from now on. It didn't take long for us to track a couple P5ers at the final table of this $150k guaranteed event (which had a very nice overlay of nearly $20k, by the way). Lehmanand Rcrane082985took 6th and 7th place. Three P5ers made the final five in the Bodog $100k, but they fell victim in order in 3rd through 5th place. Aaron_Hackerwas the highest finisher of the three, and he edged out the other two, amak316and wmmcl, to take 3rd place and a prize of $9k. Also on Sunday, Anbessatook 9th place in the Full Tilt $400k Guaranteed, which has a buy in of $200+16. Congrats to all P5ers who cashed this weekend.

  11. At each of the two Sunday Million tournaments, a P5er made the final table this week. TheWacoKidd, fresh off accumulating 50k in chips during day 1 of the WSOP Main Event, took 4th in the PartyPoker $1M Guaranteed, which easily passed its guarantee, despite the fact that so many top players are at the World Series. He received more than $44k for his finish. LUHMANalso made the final table of this event, finishing 6th.

  12. Jim "P0KERPR033" Campbell has been steadily climbing the rankings over the last few months, having reached the top 10. It looks like he'll be rising even more now, as he's just finished his Sunday the way every online poker player wants to---with a win in the Sunday Million on PokerStars. He beat out fellow P5ers cpfactor(3rd), jonnybsting(5th), and CalBandGreat(9th) before making a deal heads up that led to him winning $180k. Andy McLEOD almost pulled off yet another huge win this week as well, still taking a hefty cash for second in the Sunday Warm Up on Stars. He took home $38k after all was said and done. RayRoss87was also there, and he beat out half the final table before finishing 5th. Mattg1983(left) nearly won the second biggest tourney this week, still cashing for over $93k on Full Tilt. Matt played a long heads up match before finally giving way, and he went through many P5ers along the way. Among those were Frymealiver, who took 3rd place, and phatcat, who finished in 7th. GBecks1finished off a PocketFives.com Triple Crown with a huge win in the UltimateBet $200k. While most Triple Crown winners need the better part of a week to get there, GBecks1 barely needed a day. His heads up opponent was fajzher, also a P5er, and two other P5ers were at the final table: kdogpenny1and Devin "TranquilChaos" Porter. The Bodog 100k drew over 900 entrants this week, and P5ers Vatcheand rvrmonkeyfinished 2nd and 3rd respectively. Lastly, as usual, the Stars $200 rebuy had a final table full of P5ers.

One other P5er made the final table: Belabacsi was the 9th place finisher. His result netted him over $15k.

On PartyPokerthis week, eisenhower1of Sweden was able to take 8th place in the $300k Guaranteed.

  14. We followed him when he nearly made the top 100 in the WSOP Main Event last year, and this time, we followed him all the way to the finish line. Vegan213(right)took down the Full Tilt $750k Guaranteed on Sunday for $141k, an incredible score that puts him in an elite group of P5ers that have made a 6-figure score in a poker tournament. Amazingly, four of the top five in that event were P5s members. Cliff819and IWEARGOGGLESwere the 2nd and 3rd place finishers, taking home $87k and $60k respectively, and two-time WSOP bracelet winner Eric Froehlich, whose P5s name is efro, finished 5th for $35k. Bubbagump22was also at that final table, where he took 9th place. In addition to all those big scores on Full Tilt, one very familiar name had a huge payday on PokerStars this week. Long time online winner and original PocketFives.com #1 ranked player brsavage(left) took 3rd place in this week's Sunday Million, which was worth more than $67k! Rizenpulled off a notable feat, finishing 2nd in the $200 rebuy for the second consecutive week. Eric was disappointed in not closing it out, but he still received more than 25,000 reasons to be happy about the finish. As usual, multiple P5ers were at that final table, including apestylesand ansky451, who finished 6th and 9th respectively. Agriffrod (right) gave all his OT buddies reason to be proud this week as well, taking 4th place in the Second Chance $200. P5er BOUJAfinished 6th in the event. The other $200 freezeout, the $250k Guaranteed Sunday Warm Up, also featured two P5ers at the final table, and those two were miamivice(2nd) and demosthen3s(6th). Once again, a P5er took down the UltimateBet $200k Guaranteed this week, which has become a pretty frequent occurance. This week it was stevie444taking home the first prize of $45,000. Readers here may recall that TheWacoKiddfinished 2nd in this event last week, and he was featured on the front page of the Tournament Review. This week, he finished just shy of his previous performance, taking 3rd place for more than $18k and completing an amazing back-to-back performance. Three other well-known P5ers were at that final table on UB. Atimostook 5th place, leggggggggggytook 8th, and Dave118finished 10th. One other P5er who made a Sunday major final table this week was gilbertology, who plays as "sportsmoney" on Bodog. He ended up taking 10th in the $100k Guaranteed, which was back to its old ways with a substantial overlay of nearly $14k. As always, congrats to all P5ers who cashed in the weekend events.

  17. PocketFives.com's top ranked players showed up in a big way this weekend, taking down first prize in two of the major $200+ buy-in Sunday tournaments. Highroller48 (madhattter on PokerStars) won about $23k for first prize in the UB $200+15, and The Grinder, fresh off his 5th place finish in the Tunica WPT, won first place in the PokerStars $500+30, taking home about $90k. The action was exciting this weekend, particularly on PokerStars, where there was so much tension over the size of the prize pool that play was actually stopped three times as players attempted to make a deal. They finally were able to make one, and if you are interested in the exact details, check out our Poker Discussion Board. We were proud to see our friend Michael "The Grinder" Mizrachi take down the title—he is a machine. PocketFives.com interviewed him about a half hour before the tournament started, and that interview will be published later in the week. In the UB $200+15, two ranked players made the final table, as Lucky Egg was able to carry his short stack all the way to 9th place. 12th ranked DoubleLucky came close to the final table, finishing 16th overall. Earlier in the day on UB, P0ker H0 inched to the final table of the $500+30, finishing 10th overall. Gator93, DoubleLucky, and KUJayHawk08 all made the money but narrowly missed the final table. On Paradise, none of our ranked players made the final table, but NSXT2 did finish 19th. In the Friday night $200+15 on PartyPoker, Loewa79 finished 21st out of nearly 700 entrants, and on Saturday night on PartyPoker, JohnnyBax made it all the way to 6th place out of the nearly 1,300 who entered! Also on Saturday, gator93 pulled out a 19th place finish. Congrats to all of PocketFives.com's ranked players who had such strong results in the weekend tournaments!

  18. Superbowl weekend didn't slow down most of the online action, although a couple of the sites had fewer than their usual number of entrants. Most noticeable of these reduced fields was the UltimateBet $125k guaranteed, but this was the only major tournament that started during the game, which may explain it. phatcatsimultaneously got 2nd in two different majors on Sunday, the Bodog $100k guaranteed and the UltimateBet $100k guaranteed $500 buy in. These two tournaments were worth more than $31k to him---congrats on an amazing performance! PHARLAP 2was a huge winner this weekend, taking down the $250k guaranteed on Paradise for more than $62k. grapsfanfinished 3rd in this tournament for more than $23k. One other P5er to do well on Paradise was Just Survive, who got 5th in the Sunday $150k guaranteed. A similar win was had by slugglein the $200k guaranteed on PartyPoker. He won it for nearly $63k. mattg1983got 7th in the same. buckohfivetook 9th in the $500k there the next day. Roothluspulled off a huge score Sunday as well, taking 4th in the biggest tournament of the weekend, the $750k guaranteed on PokerStars. His cut was $48k. nopoolsand muchakawent 1-2 in the UltimateBet $125k at the end of the night. This one had a nice overlay of more than 20% of the pool. They received $31k and $19k respectively. PearlJammed also took 8th in this one. 3 P5ers made the final table of the $80k guaranteed "Weekly Big Deal" on PokerRoom. PearlJam_10, MarvinGarden, and DelaReinetook 2nd, 4th, and 6th respectively for some nice prizes. A couple other P5ers to turn in FT performances this weekend were Nordberg, who took 6th in the Bodog $100k guaranteed, Batera, who finished 8th in the $100k guaranteed on UltimateBet, and TheWacoKidd, who was the 5th place finisher in the $60k guaranteed on Full Tilt.

  19. Tournament action was juicy this weekend on all the sites, and as usual, a lot of PocketFives.com ranked players had standout performances. UltimateBet was down a little from last week in their $200+15 events, but still had a prize pool well above their $100k guarantee. Participation on PartyPoker was also down a bit this week, but PokerStars had a record prizepool for their $200+15 this week of over $500k, with over 2,500 people participating. No ranked players from PocketFives.com came extremely close to the final table in the ¼ million guaranteed on PartyPoker, but browerkid and gator93 finished 47th and 52nd respectively. Gator93 was on a great run until someone pushed all-in with AT against his QQ and flushed out. The highest ranked finishers on PokerStars this week were Bryan Bevis (7th) and Sdouble (30th).BR> In the UltimateBet $100k Guaranteed $200+15 event, acesfull23 finished second (after finishing 7th on PokerStars earlier in the day as Bryan Bevis), giving him a nice total payday of about $37k. Other noteables achieving paydays in this one were Impact3 (8th), rodm763 (22nd), and KUJayHawk08 (36th). The Paradise tourney had a nice prize pool, and although no ranked players made it to the final table, Aawwnutz finished 11th and my3sons finished 16th, and they each got a nice payout for making it so far.

  20. A few big names picked up Sunday Major wins this week, despite it being a somewhat slow weekend in the online tournament scene. Colson10(pictured) was one of those big winners, as he beat out an always-tough group in the $200 rebuy on PokerStars. Chressytook 3rd in that one, and brsavage, seaanchor, and brynkenneyps1were all in the hunt at the final table. EC10pulled off a feat that's getting tougher and tougher over the months, due to the increasingly larger fields in the Sunday majors. He final tabled two of the biggest events, taking over $41k for 5th in the Sunday Million and finishing 6th for $8,500 in the $200k Guaranteed on UltimateBet. Maintaining that kind of focus in two events at the same time can't be easy, but EC10 kept his eyes on the prize and walked away with more than $50k. Batera (left) continued his impressive summer as well. He recently won a Sunday event on Stars, and this week he took down the $150k on Absolute. The win was worth over $41k. Along the way, Batera had to get past P5er NotoriousBIL, who finished 8th in the event. Another big first place was picked up by UHBigTex, and that win came in the Second Chance on Stars for over $52k. Similarly in the Warm Up, there was just one P5er at the final table, but he made it count. Round42took 3rd in the event, which now carries a $400k guarantee every week. Third place was worth more than $30k. PearlJammer (right) winning a tournament rarely comes as a surprise, and he's had plenty of good Sundays in the past. This week he took down the Bodog$100k, which had an overlay of over $11k. First prize was worth $25k. Coming in 8th and 9th respectively were WwCROSSwWand chaos0nriver. On Full Tiltthis week, we didn't get to see any P5ers take home the top prize. We did, however, get to see a couple of strong second place finishes.

  22. The cashes continued to pile up this week for P5ers, and Hoodini10once again showed his weekend dominance, taking down the Sunday Warm Up on PokerStars. His win was worth over $70k, and on his way there, he was forced to contend with fellow P5ers Stoffiand kballsy, who took 7th and 9th place respectively. Despite it being the biggest tournament wonby a P5er this week, the biggest cashby a P5er was WiCane's share of a three-way chop in the Sunday Million. He ended up getting to keep $113k in the deal, which also included P5er anywhat, who received $90k. Ship Happenswas also at the final table, and he finished 6th for about $31k. MortalNutzalso took down a Sunday Major, when he defeated Gotskillz?heads up in the $200 rebuy to claim the first prize of over $43k. Every week, we report that several P5ers were at that final table, and this week was no different. In addition to the top two, bastet(3rd), March PLB Champion YourTimeIsUp(5th), bigjoe03(7th), t soprano(8th), and kwob20(9th) were all in the final group. The "Second Chance" $200 wasn't dominated as much by P5ers as the other majors on Stars, but we still saw Premiertake 5th and highly ranked Deuce2Highfinish 8th. The winner of the tournament was ch0ppy, who also made the final table of the $300k Guaranteed on PartyPoker, finishing 5th overall. On Full Tilt, we saw perhaps the most amazing story of the year so far, in terms of online poker success. DuckU took down the $400k Guaranteed just one week after he won the $750k Guaranteed on the same site. His wins added up to well over $200k, which would make anyone happy, and he also managed to take down P5ers heads up both weeks. This week, the victim was bdluss, and Donkey5layerwas also in deep, finishing 4th. Pbdrunkscontinued his strong Sunday play this week, finishing 2nd in the UltimateBet $200k Guaranteed. Uncledrkmeat wasn't far behind, taking 4th place, and Gank, SCTrojans, and UGOTPZDfinished in order in the 6th-8th spots. Last but not least, Cmoney3had a nice big cash in the Bodog $100k, taking $14k for 2nd place. Saxton82finished 3rd, and P5er Stiches, who was recently featured in a story on the site after final tabling two Sunday events on the same day, once again made it deep in a major, finishing 6th overall. Congrats to all P5ers who cashed this weekend.

  25. This was a special weekend for the biggest tournaments, as PartyPoker had their occasionally held $1M guaranteed tournament and PokerStars had their monthly $500k guaranteed. In the $1M, PocketFives regular Batera had a very impressive run, finishing 28th out of more than 2,200 entrants. In the $500k, the winner, brainwash, had come in 4th in the previous weekend's $350k guaranteed tournament, so that's another impressive double feat in these tournaments that seem way too large to facilitate repeat performances. In the Friday Special $200 tournament on PartyPoker, JohnnyBaxternearly pulled off the win, finishing 6th. Another noteable with a high finish in this one was SamENole, who just missed the final table, finishing 12th. Later in the weekend, the PartyPoker 1/4 Million guaranteed was won by a regular high finisher on the site, BIGSkkY. The Paradise $100k guaranteed final table was a smorgasboard of top-notch talent, with ShuMony2Nite, jacksup13, Sam E Nole, KRISTEN(BPWJR), and acesfull23 finishing 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 6th respectively. The win was especially nice for ShuMony2Nite, who came up just short 2 weeks ago, finishing 2nd. On UltimateBet, acesfull23nearly made his second major final table of the day, finishing 12th, and sheetsworld and dandickauwere also just off the final table, placing 16th and 20th respectively. One PocketFives regular who did make the final table was AmsterdamMan(7th), who won more than $2,200. Congrats to AmsterdamMan!
