  1. The second season of the GGPoker Super MILLION$ got underway this week as Estonian chess grandmaster Ottomar Ladva outlasted another star-studded final table to pick up his first Super MILLION$ title and the $325,957 first-place prize. It may be a new year and new season for the weekly $10K tournament but there were plenty of old familiar faces at this week’s final table. Joining Ladva in the final nine were Super MILLION$ reg ‘RRomashka’, Thomas Muehloecker, and a pair of previous champions in Adrian Mateos and Connor Drinan. Ladva had previously shown that he could handle himself in th
  2. Former #1-ranked Yuri ‘Yuri Martins’ Dzivielevski denied Michael Addamo a fourth GGPoker Super MILLION$ title this week by battling back from a nine-to-one chip deficit in a gripping heads-up match to clinch the $408,406 first-place prize and his first Super MILLION$ victory. By all accounts, this week’s 41st edition of the GGPoker $10K Super MILLION$ was Michael Addamo’s for the taking. The Australian superstar entered the final table with an overwhelming chip lead and over the course of the final table went on an impressive heater against a final table full of elite competition that inclu
  3. UK high-stakes tournament pro Lucas Reeves joined the elite company of Darren Elias and Michael Addamo this week by becoming just the third player to win the weekly GGPoker Super MILLION$ two or more times. In the 33rd edition of the $10K buy-in event, Reeves emerged from the middle of the final table chip counts to take down the tournament and lock up the $408,406 first-place prize. Reeves is now two-for-two at Super MILLION$ final tables with his first victory coming back in December, when he earned $381,241 while playing under his original screen name ‘Xingyun888’. This week marked the f
  4. The global Coronavirus pandemic meant poker looked very different in 2020 than it has in any other year. That didn't stop some of the most talented players in the world from putting on a show every time they took to the felt in 2020. It Was Connor Drinan's World, We Were All Just Living In It Connor Drinan had a year any poker player would dream of - and he did it while playing a somewhat limited schedule. In May, Drinan, who calls Las Vegas home, traveled outside of the United States to play the PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker more than a week after it began. He quickly made
  5. 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. Normally at this time of year, former #1-ranked PocketFiver Chris Moorman and his wife Katie Lindsay are busy making daily runs to and from the Rio Hotel as they grind the World Series of Poker and various other tournaments around town.

  6. In 2020, the action of the World Series of Poker looks to be taking place entirely online. And as he has been in years past, Daniel Negreanu is here for all of it. Last week it was announced that the 2020 World Series of Poker was pivoting to a schedule of 85 online gold bracelet events in response to the live summer series indefinite postponement. The first half of the schedule offers 31 bracelets to online players in Nevada and New Jersey on WSOP.com.

  7. 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.

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
  8. It’s the day after 30-year-old poker pro Michael ‘miguelfiesta’ Lech won his first World Series of Poker gold bracelet and he’s spending some time doing what many might do after taking down one of the biggest online tournaments of the 2020 WSOP - he’s drinking some beer, relaxing by the pool. But truth be told, that the same thing he was doing while playing the tournament the night before. “I was at least ten Stellas in by the time the final table hit yesterday,” Lech admits. “I was a little trashed.” To be fair, Lech’s intoxicated state wasn’t entirely his own fault. Lech and his gir
  9. The busy two-week stretch that included PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker, partypoker Powerfestand 888poker XL Inferno allowed some of the best online poker players to hit some major career milestones including one player becoming just the fourth ever to crack the $10 million mark.
