  1. The New Jersey Online Poker Rankings continues to be topped by none other than Michael ‘Gags30’ Gagliano. Gagliano (4,288.22 PLB points), who routinely plays the highest online buy-ins that New Jersey has to offer, put together another impress month in March. He strung together 11 four-figure cashes, eight of which counted toward his PLB total. He cashed for over $38,000 in March, with the highlight being his runner-up finish in the PokerStars NJ Sunday Special for $6,750. Rising to the #2 ranking is David ‘dehhhh’ Coleman (3,814.89) thanks to a solid end-of-the-month heater in March. Coleman cracked the Worldwide Top 300 rankings thanks to a trio of cashes, each worth over $5,000. First up was his third-place finish on March 25 in Borgata Poker GSSS Spring ’18 Event #16 High Roller for $9,000. He followed that up the very next day by taking down the WSOP NJ BIG Deal for another $9,600. The run continued one day later with another outright win in the PokerStars NJ Super Tuesday for over $5,600. Taking a small step back into the #3 ranking is Yong ‘kwon17’ Kwon (3,636.84). Kwon was victorious in eight different tournaments in March which is the same number of four-figure scores the former New Jersey #1 raked in. Mike ‘lav519’ Lavenburg (3,527.23) retains his #4 ranking in New Jersey with the help of his mammoth victory in the partypoker NJ GSSS Spring ’18 $50,000 GTD High Roller. He took home the rare five-figure score of $15,500 and added 223.61 PLB points to his total. In addition to his big victory, Lavenburg pulled in roughly $66,000 in the month. Rounding out the top 5 in New Jersey is Daniel ‘centrfieldr’ Lupo (3,413.93). Lupo amassed seven PLB qualifying cashes including an over $5,000 score for his runner-up finish in the March 26 WSOP NJ BIG Deal. ’sri100k’ (3,015.28) rose six spots to claim the #6 ranking this month thanks to playing heavy volume and working his way to 16 podium finished in March. He earned $6,356 for his victory in the PokerStars NJ Turbo Series Event #26 which was one of 14 of his four-figure cashes in the month. Atlantic City’s #7-ranked Andrew ‘Mergulas’ Glauberg (3,001.91) cashed over 50 times in March including four outright wins. Though not one of his victories, his month was capped by a runner-up finish in the March 27 PokerStars NJ Super Tuesday for over $3,700. On March 26, ‘Jermz’ (2,964. 25) scored a trio of four-figure cashes including two fourth-place finishes on WSOP NJ and a final table finish in the Borgata Poker GSSS Spring ’18 Main Event for over $3,700. In total, he added nearly $10,000 to his bankroll on that day along and three qualifying cashes to help him remain at the #8 ranking. Michael ‘JohnnnyDrama’ Haberman (2,925.11) rose one spot to the #9 ranking in March on the back of nine podium finishes including a victory in the WSOP NJ $10,000 Fierce Warrior for $2,850. Weehawken’s #1 player, ‘ol muggins’ (2,922.78) completes the current top 10 ranked players in New Jersey due to a heavy schedule and the lift he received him his runner-up finish in the NJPC II Main Event at the very end of February which brought him a career-high cash of just over $20,000. New Jersey Online Poker Rankings Top 10 RANK PLAYER POINTS 1 Gags30 4,288.22 2 dehhhhh 3,814.89 3 ykwon17 3,636.84 4 Lav519 3,527.23 5 centrfieldr 3,143.93 6 sri100k 3,015.28 7 Mergulas 3,001.91 8 Jermz 2,964.25 9 JohnnnyDrama 2,925.11 10 ol muggins 2,922.78
  2. Poker talent grows across the United States within players who hone their craft online. How an online player might perform live during the summer is anyone's guess. American PocketFivers did well last summer, headlined by Scott 'Sblum2711' Blumstein's win in the World Series of Poker Main Event. Blumstein's run came as a surprise to many and he likely would not have been on a "top-5" list for a similar preview at this time last year. The five players below are all qualified in their own right. Repeating Blumstein's performance might be a lofty goal but expect to see all of these American PocketFivers on a few Day 3 leaderboards this summer. Ali 'ali23imsirovic' Imsirovic A dominator on the non-regulated sites, Imsirovic crushes live poker as well. Imsirovic topped a tough field in April at the Borgata Spring Poker Open Main Event to win his major event along with $246,066. At only 23-years-old, Imsirovic is already playing $25,000 High Rollers on a consistent basis including the U.S. Poker Open and the recent Bellagio High Roller. A Sunday Million win this March plays a large role in Imsirovic's standing as the #1 American PocketFiver. Imsirovic awaits his breakout score on poker's biggest stage and is expected to play most of the major No Limit events both at the Rio and around The Strip. Michael 'Gags30' Gagliano It almost feels like cheating to put Gagliano on a 'player to watch' list but his consistent online success makes him tough to ignore. Gagliano topped the New Jersey Online Rankings for most of 2018 and won an NJSCOOP title in May. On the live side, Gagliano only has two cashes in 2018. Recent summers in Las Vegas suggest Gagliano is due to turn that trend around. In 2016, Gagliano won his first career bracelet in the $2,500 No Limit Hold'em event. The next year, he followed up that performance with a $1,500 NLHE final table and a third-place finish in the $3,000 Six-Max. A loaded summer schedule for Gagliano makes him a favorite to notch at least one memorable run this year. Jed 'JCHAK' Hoffman Hoffman stands as one of the most elite players in the history of Nevada online. A browse through the WSOP Nevada lobby on Sundays equals the familiar sight of Hoffman's simple and striking screenname. The Reno resident is making a name for himself in the mid-major events on the West Coast. Hoffman locked up a seat in the WSOP Circuit Global Championship thanks in large part to assertive performances in two Circuit Main Events. November's Lake Tahoe Main Event equaled fourth-place for Hoffman and he preceded that run with a fifth-place ribbon at Thunder Valley in September. Hoffman's best finish last summer was 12th in the $3,333 Online High Roller. He also owns a WSOP $1,500 NLHE final table dating back to 2013. David 'dehhhhh' Coleman The feared name of 'Coles93' on PokerStarsNJ is over the $1.1 million mark in career online tournament earnings. Coleman is slowly building a live portfolio for himself with a cash in the 2017 WSOP Main Event as the highlight so far. $80,600 is where Coleman's live winnings stand thanks to cashes in the Borgata Winter and Spring Poker Open Main Events along with March's Parx 1500. Coleman's schedule this summer is undetermined but he is the most likely of the New Jersey grinders to strike big thanks to the experience of 156 online wins. Kou 'ktyven' Vang Consistent is the best way to describe Vang. The Minnesota native has over $1.3 million in earnings with a high score of $78,421. Vang's location prevents him from playing regulated online poker but he is up to #5 in the United States. The Venetian hosted a win for Vang last summer in the $1,100 Bounty event worth $68,300. Vang awaits his first six-figure score and is a favorite to play the majority of what is available at any property this summer.
  3. The New Jersey Online Poker Rankings return with the most familiar of faces in first place. Michael 'Gags30' Gagliano is the clubhouse leader at the effective midway point of 2018 thanks to another stellar month. The first full month of interstate play results in more PLB points and larger prize pools. Gagliano took full advantage and leads second-place David 'dehhhhh' Coleman by a touch over 100 points. Two marquee results stand out for Gagliano in the month of May. The PokerStarsNJ Sunday High Roller on May 13 shipped to Gagliano and he earned $8,272 for the result. The following week, Gagliano won the Coast 2 Coast Classic High Roller for $28,851 on WSOP.com. Coleman earned himself five victories in May. The largest score by a wide margin was Coleman's win in the WSOP.com Tuesday Showdown on May 23. A $25,000 guarantee resulted in $39,000 in the prize pool and Coleman earned $12,329 for beating the field of 54. The wide gap between Gagliano and Coleman and the rest of the state leads Yong 'ykwon17' Kwon to be in third place with about 400 points of separation. Kwon put together a solid month with 12 podium finishes and two wins. The largest score ever earned by Kwon came the Coast 2 Coast Classic $85,000 guaranteed High Roller. Kwon withdrew $19,697 from the prize pool for the silver medal. Mike 'Lav519' Lavenburg is in fourth place for another month. Lavenburg's summer is off to a quality start thanks to a Day 2 appearance in the Colossus. Online-wise, Lavenburg lowered his volume and put up only a single medal result. Lavenburg did place 10th in the Coast 2 Coast Classic Main Event in a field of 359. A new face in the rankings is Ryan 'shipthesherb' Hohner. The Borgata Winter Poker Open Event 1 runner-up put up a monster May with seven wins. Hohner climaxed in the final weekend of the month by winning the PokerStarsNJ Sunday High Roller for the first time to collect $8,272. Another player to pick up a huge win in May was Jason 'JLaw' Lawhun. The increased prize pools on WSOP.com worked to Lawhun's advantage as he won the May 28 $100,000 guaranteed Sunday event for $35,190. Lawhun earned his largest career online prize with the win. Daniel 'centrfieldr' Lupo and 'ol muggins' changed their positions by two spots. Lupo won the May 29 Super Tuesday but is now in seventh place over. 'ol muggins' joined the rankings last month and is up to eighth place following their 12-medal month. Michael 'JohnnnyDrama' Haberman and 'sri100k' are both in the top-10 for another month. Both players won three events and stepped on to the podium a combined 16 times. The summer should be interesting in the state with most grinders who travel to Las Vegas eligible to pick up points on WSOP.com. New Jersey Online Poker Rankings Top 10 RANK PLAYER POINTS 1 Gags30 4,057.26 2 dehhhhh 3,954.97 3 ykwon17 3,568.49 4 Lav519 3,556.69 5 shipthesherb 3,502.03 6 JLaw 3,377.60 7 centrfieldr 3,321.48 8 ol muggins 3,120.38 9 sri100k 3,115.16 10 JohnnnyDrama 2,862.03
  4. Another month of an incomplete roster of New Jersey grinders ended the same way June did. Daniel 'centrfieldr' Lupo tops the charts for another month (4.275.97 PLB points) and is the only player in the state over the 4,000 point benchmark. Lupo achieved five wins in July topped off by a $12,950 result on PokerStarsNJ. The NJ Summer Series $1,000 High Roller on July 24 attracted 36 of the state's best and Lupo emerged victoriously by beating competitors Michael 'JohnnnyDrama' Haberman and Michael 'Gags30' Gagliano on the tournament podium. Overall, Lupo earned 12 top-3 finishes and his career online earnings are up to $1.765 million. David 'dehhhhh' Coleman jumped over Gagliano to take second place for this month. Coleman was in Las Vegas for a week at the start of July and overcame the lack of volume to achieve 12 medals and three golds. The last Sunday of the month proved to be a profitable one. Coleman took third place in the PokerStarsNJ $10,000 GTD High Roller and the NJ Summer Series Main Event to top $12,700 in gross earnings. He wasn't done there. The partypokerNJ $40,000 GTD ended with Coleman in the winner's circle to collect the $7,455 first-place prize. Gagliano fell a spot in the rankings but still had himself a productive month. In only a week of play, Gagliano won the NJ Summer Series $25,000 GTD Six-Max for $6,056 and then place third in events on partypokerNJ and PokerStarsNJ. Gagliano's summer in Las Vegas featured six cashes with the best result coming in the $5,000 NLH Big Blind Ante event where he took 10th place for $27,208. Jason 'JLaw' Lawhun and Yong 'ykwon17' Kwon traded spots on the leaderboard at the fourth and fifth positions. Lawhun jumped a spot thanks in part to a full month of volume which equaled 37 cashes. Two of those scores were wins including a July-ending triumph in the $7,500 GTD KO on WSOP.com. The win came with $3,225 to put Lawhun within $80,000 of cracking the $1 million mark in career online earnings. Kwon didn't jump online until the second to last weekend in July. In that span, he gained a single win on partypokerNJ. Overall, his career earnings are up $1.6 million effective, leaving him only $70,000 behind Jeremy 'Jermz' Danger for New Jersey's all-time tournament winner. Ryan 'shipthesherb' Hohner held onto sixth place for another month. Hohner cashed a few times upon his return to New Jersey but is awaiting his first major post-WSOP score. While in Las Vegas for the full summer, Hohner cashed in the WSOP Main Event for $33,305 in 413th place to close out his campaign. Seventh place in the NJ rankings belongs to Haberman. Two wins in the $30 $7,000 GTD R&A on WSOP.com for $6,472 total are the primary highlights of Haberman's online month. He also took third in the WSOP.com $100,000 GTD Sunday Special on July 23 for $10,322. On the live side, Haberman also cashed in the Main Event in the same pay slot as Hohner for his 359th place result. Ted 'ol muggins' Ely jumped back into the rankings with his eighth-place standing. Ely's July included 12 podium results and two wins. The best of the bunch was the July 12 PokerStarsNJ $7,000 GTD Nightly where Ely claimed the $2,364 first-place prize. 'Thatgood45' also joined the top-10 after a strong five wins in July. 'senor stinks' completes the top-10 for the second month in a row.

  5. Pennsylvania is preparing for a much-anticipated launch of regulated online poker. Once it does, it will make regulated online poker play available to the population a nearly 13 million people that live in the Keystone State. With its population, Pennsylvania will be the largest state to legally offer online poker in the United States, eclipsing that of New Jersey, Nevada, and Delaware, and adding a welcomed boost to the regulated US online poker market. Whether you're an experienced online poker player or someone that's new to the virtual felt, you likely have questions surrounding what to expect when real-money online poker finally becomes live in Pennsylvania. To help provide you with some answers, PocketFives tapped into the community and spoke to those with experience playing online poker in the new regulated landscape. We spoke with some of the top players from New Jersey, where online poker is legal, regulated, and growing. Here's what Michael 'Gags30' Gagliano, Daniel 'centrfieldr' Lupo, Jon 'itsmejon' Borenstein, and 2012 WSOP Main Event champion Greg Merson had to say. What can Pennsylvania players expect when online poker launches in the state? Michael 'Gags30' Gagliano: "Like others, I'm not positive what we'll see, but I think players can expect a nice mix of cash games and tournaments from the various sites. Players need to remember, though: these sites won't be like you remember them from 2011 - they are going to be much smaller. That means fewer games at off-peak hours and less liquidity when it comes to things like sit-n-gos. But this shouldn't' discourage Pennsylvania players. Just because you can't win $100,000 on a Sunday doesn't mean that there won't be good tournaments. Don't let a ‘small' first-place prize turn you off. A smaller field means you have a much higher chance of winning that tournament. So sure, $10,000 isn't as alluring as $100,000, but having a real shot at winning a tournament instead of buying into what can sometimes feel like a lottery ticket is a positive in my book!" Daniel 'centrfieldr' Lupo: "Based upon experiences with New Jersey's intro and when the Nevada merger came on board, there were some initial hiccups around the launch times. So I would recommend signing up early and preparing yourself for some early bumps in the road, such as potential software or geo-location issues, but not to be deterred by them as they tend to be short-lived. But the initial 'bumpy road period' will have its perks, too. I'm assuming (hoping) there will be a number of welcome bonuses, new-player bonuses, welcome freerolls, as well as some sort of initial online tournament series to celebrate the expansion... so signing up early would definitely be to a player's benefit to take advantage of these timely promotions. "I would also recommend that Pennsylvania players make sure they have viable internet connections, and back-up options like some sort of mobile hotspot option, as well as a strong wifi signal which will help alleviate a lot of the early potential geo-location headaches." Jon 'itsmejon' Borenstein: "Pennsylvania players can expect to have a new poker outlet in addition to the many casinos in the Pennsylvania area, which should only help grow the game and draw new players in that wouldn’t otherwise be able to make it to a casino regularly." Greg Merson: "I think when Pennsylvania launches there will be a decent amount of traffic to start, but unfortunately with only approximately 12 million people, I don’t think it will be all that special in the long run." What are the benefits of regulated online poker and why should players in Pennsylvania be excited about it? Gagliano: "The by far biggest benefit of regulated Pennsylvania online poker is safety and peace of mind in playing online poker again. Legal and regulated sites mean that players won't have to worry about having to deposit using cryptocurrencies, or worrying that a site won't pay out their cash-out. It means that players won't have to worry if a site is ‘rigged’ and can come to expect the same level of game security that they get when they play in Pennsylvania brick-and-mortar casinos." Lupo: "Having a regulated site where your money is safe has been a huge peace of mind for me versus playing on unregulated sites, which always give you a sense of worry. Payouts are fast and secure and there are numerous safe deposit options. But overall, the best thing about online poker in my experience has been the convenience of it. With a family, it allows me to be home more, versus spending time in a casino, and work around my family's schedule so I can have dinner with them every night and put the kids to bed. And if you're playing a cash session and just not feeling it, you can comfortably stop playing and do something else, whereas a casino trip has a lot more overhead and commitment time-wise." Borenstein: "It's nice to play online without worrying about shady practice or the sites getting shut down out of nowhere. You know your money is safe. I think that for anyone who is serious about poker or wants to get serious about poker, regulated online sites are a great tool to have as a way to practice and get in exponentially more hands than you would if you were playing live, and being able to do it all from the comfort of your own home." Merson: "The benefits of playing in a regulated industry mean you know your money is safe, the play is secure, and there are no ways for outside countries to VPN the system." With the anticipation of Pennsylvania online poker being very high, what are you most looking forward to when thinking about having Pennsylvania on board for online poker? Gagliano: "The thing I look most forward to with Pennsylvania poker is just another state coming online, thus giving more players in the Northeast a chance to play online poker again. It also brings the U.S. one state closer to allowing everyone the ability to once again play poker from the comfort of their homes." Lupo: "Being primarily a tournament player, it's always nice when the increased player pools can generate larger prize pools. These larger prize pools are like a domino effect and not only encourage players from Pennsylvania to join the action but will also increase the traffic in other states that previously may have been skipping some tournaments due to smaller guarantees than they would like. "I'm also looking forward to a new influx of players. After playing in a small market like New Jersey for the past 4-5 years, some fresh faces would be a welcomed change." Borenstein: "I'm looking forward to increased prize pools, player traffic, and more multi-table tournaments to play each night. I’m also looking forward to what it means to overall growth of online poker in the US. Hopefully, more and more states will follow suit and begin legalizing online poker." Merson: "I actually don’t think Pennsylvania will join the New Jersey pool anytime soon, if at all. This Wire Act issue may cause Nevada to pull out of New Jersey and if that happens I think the hopes of more states joining in are bleak. If they do join, I gladly welcome the liquidity as volume has dropped a good bit in New Jersey over the years."
  6. After turning a Platinum Pass he won for $86 into a $35,000 score in the PokerStars Players NL Hold’em Championship, Anthony 'tonydatiger' Maio now finds himself atop the PocketFives United States Online Poker Rankings. Maio currently has 5,134.21 points and is ahead of David 'bewater' Goodman in second and Michael 'Gags30' Gagliano in third. United States Online Poker Rankings Top 10 RANK PLAYER POINTS 1 Anthony 'tonydatiger' Maio 5,134.21 2 David 'bewater' Goodman 4,716.53 3 Michael 'Gags30' Gagliano 4,596.22 4 Jon 'itsmejon' Borenstein 4,497.39 5 Daniel 'centrfieldr' Lupo 4,196.83 6 Justin 'Lappy' Lapka 3,992.79 7 'Hurricane27' 3,978.63 8 David 'dehhhhh' Coleman 3,914.59 9 Chance 'Chances Cards' Kornuth 3,770.43 10 'jordanfrog' 3,665.53 Maio has a handful of recent four-figure scores, including a good number of those coming from WSOP.com and PokerStars NJ. Maio’s biggest score on WSOP.com recently was a first-place finish in the $20,000 Monthly Saturday [PLO, 6 Max] for $6,400 and 141.42 points on January 27, 2019. Just a few days before that, Maio took fourth in the WSOP.com Tuesday Showdown - $30,000 GTD [Re-entry] for $5,137 and 98.65 points on January 23.
