He originally ascended to the top on May 6 and has a PLB score of 7,763 points, 400 more than the next closest player. Fierro just hit $8 million in career online tournament winnings, the fourth highest total of anyone in our community, and has won three tournaments over the last two days: the WinamaxXPERT, PokerStars.fr Six-Max Club, and PokerStars $51 NLO High-Low. On May 26, Fierro took down four tournaments for almost 350 PLB Points combined and is up to 308 career victories in online MTTs. The Santiago, Chile resident has been a member of PocketFives for the last eight years. We had two new entrants into the top 10 of the Rankings this week. The first was Austria's mindgamer(pictured below), who moved up four spots from #13 to #9. He won the Full Tilt Big Ben on the final day of May for $10,000 and was the runner-up in a SCOOP NLHE event two weeks before that for almost $90,000. He calls Vienna home. The other new entrant into the top 10 was Sweden's eisenhower1, who finished sixth in the SCOOP Main Event and earned $294,000 along with almost 900 PLB Points. He just passed $7 million in career online tournament winnings and booked his fifth PocketFives Triple Crownin February after wins on Full Tilt, PokerStars, and 888 Poker. Outside of the top 10, Davide girex91Marchi from Malta entered the top 100 at #50. He finished second in the Sunday Million over the weekend for $135,000 one week after winning the Big $162 for $26,000. He received his $1 million cash badge on Tuesday. Finally this week, we wanted to single out longtime Rankings staple Legenden, who moved up from #27 to #15. Like Marchi, Legenden final tabled the Sunday Million over the weekend and earned $14,000.

  2. It's Wednesday, which means the PocketFives Online Poker Rankingswere refreshed. Just like every week, we had several players make waves, including prebzzz, who entered his screen names and consequently jumped to #3 in the world, a new all-time high. He has $2.5 million in career winnings and is the top-ranked Norwegian on our site. prebzzz final tabled the 888Whale over the weekend for $13,000, about the same amount as he received for finishing second in the PokerStars.fr Sunday Uppercut one week earlier. In late September, the Norway poker community member won the PokerStars $109 No Limit Hold'em Cubed for $20,000. prebzzz has 6,802 PLB Points, the measure used to determine the Rankings, but still trails top-ranked eisenhower1 by 1,200. Speaking of eisenhower1, the Swede continues to churn out solid scores. He won the 888 Crocodile on October 18 for $16,000 and banked $133,000 following a WCOOP $700 No Limit Hold'em Cubed win in September. Another Swede, Yaya24, moved up seven spots to crack the top 10 at #5. This is the highest he has ever been ranked and comes in part after winning a PartyPoker Pokerfest High Roller Event for $32,000 on Monday. On October 11, he made the final table of the PokerStars Sunday Million for $4,000 more. Swedes comprise half of the top eight spots in the Rankings and eight Swedes appear in the top 20 worldwide. Accordingly, Sweden has a healthy lead in our Country Poker Rankings and has a combined PLB score of its top 20 players of 108,068 PLB Points, which is 5,000 more than the second-ranked UK. Australia's krasark climbed 37 spots in the Rankings to #47 in the world after finishing third in the Sunday Million over the weekend and cashed for $127,000. The week before, krasark won the PokerStars Sunday $109 Rebuy, so he has been on a tear as of late. The Aussie passed $3 million in career online tournament scores two weeks ago. A former #1 ranked player, norfair18 (pictured), reappeared in the top 100 this week at #66. He was last ranked #1 in May and took down the PokerStars $215 No Limit Hold'em Turbo earlier this month for $20,000. He final tabled last week's Super Tuesday and is quickly closing in on $2 million in online MTT scores. Finally this week, we wanted to highlight RoccoGe, who reentered the top 100 at #72. This Italian has six wins since October 15, raising his career total to 132, and he plays as sephirot88 on PokerStars. He was ranked as high as #18 on PocketFives last year.

He has 8,121 PLB Points, the metric used to determine the leaderboard, which is almost 1,400 more than the next closest player. eisenhower1 has been on a tear as of late. He took down the 888 Poker Crocodile for $6,300 last week and, at the end of September, the Swede finished 29th in the WCOOP Main Event for $32,000 and took second in the Sunday Kickoff for another $24,000 the same day. Forty-eight hours before that, he won a WCOOP bracelet in a $700 No Limit Hold'em Cubed event and bagged $133,000. Another Swede, C Darwin2, moved up six spots to #4 this week.

On Tuesday, he finished third in the Big $162 and continued to add to his war chest. He is one of 102 PocketFivers in Vancouver with PLB scores. Brazil's Bernardo bedias Dias (pictured) reentered the top 10 this week at #10, eight spots off his all-time high set earlier this year.

He has another $221,000 in live tournament winnings to his name, according to the Hendon Mob.

  4. PocketFivers continue to roll in the ongoing PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker, or WCOOP. Two of the most recent winners were Kyle KJulius10Julius (pictured) and eisenhower1, who both took down high-stakes tournaments for their first WCOOP titles. --- Tournament Poker Edgeis the only poker training site dedicated exclusively to MTTs and features over 1,000 training videos, blogs, articles, podcasts and a dedicated strategy forum for members. Check Tournament Poker Edge out on Twitter. --- We'll start with Julius, who won a $1,050 Limit Hold'em Six-Max event and Tweeted, "Ft of 1k limit WCOOP! Don't really know what I'm doing... fun nonetheless." When all was said and done, Julius wrote, "I won the 1k WCOOP championship! Now for some cocktails and football to get ready for the big day tomorrow!" There were 153 entrants in the $1,050 Limit Hold'em Six-Max tournament and by the time the final table rolled around, Julius held the chip lead. Entering heads-up, Julius was up 2:1 in chips. After a brief discussion of a chop, Julius and Dancer King played on, with the former taking down three big pots in a row. On the final hand, Dancer King was all-in on a flop of J-7-6 with K-9 of diamonds only to see that Julius had aces. The board ran out 2-Q, giving Julius his first WCOOP bracelet and $36,000: 1. KJulius10 (Canada) - $36,720 2. Dancer King (Russia) - $25,321 3. Mrdawwe (Sweden) - $19,125 4. Naza114 (Czech Republic) - $13,005 5. Kroko-dill (Russia) - $9,945 6. Beeeehto (Brazil) - $6,885 PocketFives has tracked $4.1 million in online tournament winnings for Julius, who has been a member of our site for the last nine years. He has almost $3 million in live winnings, according to the Hendon Mob, highlighted by a runner-up finish in the 2012 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure Main Event for $1.5 million. Also taking down his first WCOOP title in recent days was eisenhower1, who calls Sweden home. He won a $700 No Limit Hold'em Cubed tournament for $105,000 following a three-way deal. The event drew 518 entrants and eisenhower1 led the final table, which included fellow PocketFiver Mike timex McDonald (pictured), who took seventh place. The three-way chop took almost no time to be agreed on and heads-up play lasted all of eight minutes. On the final hand, A.Tricarico check-raised all-in on a flop of 9-8-3 with 8-6 for middle pair only to see eisenhower1 roll over 9-3 for two pair. The board completed J-7 and eisenhower1 locked up his first WCOOP win: 1. eisenhower1 (Sweden) - $105,942 2. A.Tricarico (Belgium) - $95,124 3. 42ayay (Sweden) - $102,259 4.

  5. Another week, another PocketFives Rankingsupdate. This time, a familiar face returned to the top 10: eisenhower1. The Swede moved up 14 spots and now sits at #8 in the world, six off his all-time high. Can he make a run at #1? The Swede has had an overly productive last few days. Since July 19, he has finished second in the PartyPokerSunday Major for $17,000 and won the PokerStars.fr Hot €100 Turbo, PartyPoker Super High Roller, and PokerStars Big $75 for a combined $20,000. He just passed $7 million in online MTT winnings and is $300,000 shy of hitting $7.5 million, the threshold for a brand new badge in his PocketFives profile. Continuing his reign at #1 this week is Nico PokerKaiser Fierro (pictured), who has ruled the roost on PocketFives since the beginning of May. Fierro has about a 400-point lead over second place and continues to churn out win after win. In the last three days, he has taken down the PokerStars $35,000 Guaranteed and Hot $55 Turbo for over $17,000 combined, bringing his career win total to 319. Jon apestylesVan Fleet just hit $7 million in online tournament winnings after finishing third in the Sunday Million over the weekend for almost $90,000. The 538 PLB Points he reaped for that score helped propel him 19 spots higher in the Rankings; he's now at #14. Van Fleet was ranked as high as #3 on PocketFives in 2007 and is the #1 player in the poker factory of Canada. Jumping up 33 spots this week was Romania's Narcisus90, who ended up at #43. His big claim to fame this month is winning the PokerStars Thursday Thrill for $40,000 and 461 PLB Points at a final table that had five PocketFivers. He is closing in on $1 million in online tournament scores and is the #3 ranked player in Romania. Reentering the top 100 worldwide was UK's 1_conor_b_1 (pictured), who comes in at #71.

  6. The results are in for September's Monthly PocketFives Leaderboard, or Monthly PLB, and one Swede ran away with the win. Whereas other months have seen Monthly PLB champions crowned by a few dozen points, in September, eisenhower1took it down by a healthy 700 points over the second place player, Fresh_Oo_D. eisenhower1 amassed 3,992 PLB Points in September, the most by a Monthly PLB winner since Nico PokerKaiser Fierro bagged 4,026 in September of last year. As it turns out, 3,992 points is the 10th largest PLB total ever in a month since we began awarding Monthly PLB titles in 2007. This is the first time eisenhower1 has won the award. His largest score during September came via a win in a WCOOP $700 No Limit Hold'em Cubed event for $133,000 officially and 840 PLB Points. Also during the month, he took 29th in the WCOOP Main Event for $32,000 and finished second in the PokerStars Sunday Kickoff for $24,000. eisenhower1 also found success in WCOOP Second Chance events last month, winning a $215 No Limit Hold'em Ultra Deep version for $22,000 and final tabling a $530 No Limit Hold'em Second Chance event for $21,000. Lifetime, the Swede is up to $7.6 million in career online tournament winnings derived in part from almost 400 top-three finishes. Not surprisingly, eisenhower1 is the #1 player in the PocketFives Online Poker Rankings, a distinction he has held since September 30. This is the third Monthly PLB win for Sweden, which is home to 1,180 PocketFivers. Here were the top 10 finishers in September's Monthly PLB race along with the PLB score for each: 1. eisenhower1 - 3,992 points 2. Fresh_Oo_D - 3,289 points 3. girex91 - 3,155 points 4.

  7. It was a pretty turbulent week at the top of the PocketFives Online Poker Rankings. For the first time in his career, Sweden's eisenhower1is our new #1 player. He has a massive PLB score of 8,113 points, the most this author can remember seeing by any player in quite some time, and leads second-ranked Tiny_molester by a healthy 1,300 points. In the last week, eisenhower1 has been on an absolute tear. He won a WCOOP Second Chance event for $22,000 in cash along with 343 PLB Points on September 24. The next day, the Swede took down a WCOOP $700 No Limit Hold'em Cubed event for $133,000 and another 840 PLB Points. On September 27, eisenhower1 drove to a 29th place finish in the WCOOP Main Event and cashed out for $32,000. The same day, he placed second in the Sunday Kickoff and became just the 10th PocketFiver ever to hit $7.5 million in career online tournament scores. He's the first Swede to be ranked #1 since r4ndomr4gs, who bowed out from the top spot in July 2014. Also making waves this week was Christopher kid_brammBrammer (pictured), who is a former #1 ranked player on PocketFives. Brammer moved up 20 spots to #3 in the world and trails Tiny_molester by nine points. He won a WCOOP Second Chance event for $55,000 and well over 500 PLB Points to help send him up the leaderboard. Ontario's cswamimoved up 22 spots to settle at #7 worldwide, his highest position ever, thanks in part to a second place finish in the PokerStars Sunday $109 Rebuy over the weekend for $47,000 and almost 400 PLB Points. He also won the site's $265 No Limit Hold'em Knockout and added almost $9,000 to his coffers and found the winner's circle of a WCOOP Second Chance tournament for $39,000. Outside of the top 10, we wanted to single out Vancouver's jbrown8777, who moved up from #43 to #16, 10 spots off his all-time high set last year. Like others we've talked about, jbrown8777 had a successful WCOOP, winning a $700 No Limit Hold'em Six-Max event for $110,000 and a solid 839 PLB Points.

  8. Swedes continue to make waves atop the PocketFives Online Poker Rankings. They occupy the top two spots, three of the top seven spots, and seven of the top 19 spots. Making waves this week was Sweden's lena900, who moved up nine places to #7 in the world, four off his all-time high. He has had a blockbuster month of October so far and still has another 10 days to bank even more. On the fourth of the month, lena900 took down the 888 Poker Turbo Mega Deep for $11,000. One day later, he rolled to victory in the bwin Super High Roller and put back another $13,000. On October 11, lena900 won the PokerStars.fr Sunday High Roller for $10,000 and followed that up with a gold medal one week later in the PokerStars Sunday Kickoff for $28,000. He now has 70 tracked wins and $3.4 million in total cashes in online MTTs. lena900 has 2,353 in the money finishes at an average of $1,470 each.

He finished second in the PokerStars Sunday Six-Max over the weekend for $14,000 and final tabled the site's Sunday Supersonic the same day for another $18,000. He is nearing $3 million in online poker cashes on PokerStars alone. eisenhower1 remains the top dog on PocketFives this week.

Russia's NoPlanB (pictured) moved up 40 spots this week to settle at #43 in the world.

  9. For the first time ever, Sweden's C Darwin2cracked the top 10 of the PocketFives Rankings. The leaderboard was recalculated on Wednesday and C Darwin2 jumped 10 spots to land at #10. His top 10 showing was due in part to two wins on Winamax this month: a victory in the Grand for $36,000 and a win in the High Roller on Tuesday for another $8,200. C Darwin2 is up to $3.1 million in career online tournament winnings, the largest of which was worth almost $200,000 and came via a gold in the W Series Million Event in September that netted him over 1,000 PLB Points, the metric used to determine the Rankings. There wasn't a lot of movement in the top 10 this week. Fellow Swede eisenhower1 remained the top dog for the second straight week with 8,119 PLB Points, a full 1,300 more than the next closest person. He made mincemeat of the recently-completed WCOOP, winning a $700 No Limit Hold'em Cubed event for $133,000 and taking down a Second Chance tournament for $22,000. Outside of the top 10, Denmark's IgorK(pictured) jumped 19 spots to land at #35. He final tabled the PokerStarsSunday $109 Rebuy last month for $35,000 and had wins on back-to-back days in the PartyPokerSuper High Roller and 888 Poker Volcano for $52,000 combined. Another Swede, inhoo, moved up 33 spots to #44 in the world. He logged three five-figure cashes on October 4: a final table in the PokerStars $109 No Limit Hold'em Turbo, an eighth place finish in the Sunday Million, and a third place finish in the $215 No Limit Hold'em Turbo. Those three scores were worth over $35,000 combined. Good day. norfair18 reentered the top 100 worldwide at #85. He was ranked #1 on our site earlier this year and won the PokerStars $215 No Limit Hold'em Turbo a few days ago for $20,000. norfair18 is up to $1.7 million in career online MTT winnings.

He has been the top dog on PocketFives since September 30 and looks poised to round out the 2015 calendar year in first place as well. eisenhower1 is closing in on $8 million in winnings in tournaments PocketFives tracks and won the PartyPokerHeavyweight Uppercut on Tuesday for $8,400 and 225 PLB Points. The Swede has almost 400 top-three finishes and leads the second place player in the Rankings, veeea, by about 400 points. eisenhower1 told PocketFives about his three-month run in the #1 spot on PocketFives: "I had a great run during the WCOOP grind. It has been really fun staying at the #1 spot for such a long time, although it feels like all the points I have are from months back when I hit a real heater during the WCOOP." He added that he hasn't been able to get on the virtual felts much lately due to a recent trip to Thailand: "A bunch of Swedish poker players and I went to Thailand for a month and the time zone there is really bad for MTTs. We did play on Sundays, but I don't think anyone had a winning day. Now, I'm back home trying to get back into the grind. I put up a bet with lena900 to find some motivation for the start of 2016." [caption width="450"] Smeckten rose 10 spots in the Rankings this week[/caption] Then there's Smeckten, who rose 10 spots in the Rankings this week to #4 in the world, his highest position ever. Smeckten is on the verge of passing $4 million in tracked online MTT winnings and is fresh off winning his fourth PocketFives Triple Crown. Smeckten finished second in the PokerStars Big $109 three days ago for $28,000 and has six wins since December 7. Moving up from #12 to #10, two spots off his all-time high, was another Swede, Ariados. He hit it big in the Winamax High Roller three days ago, taking the tournament down for $14,000. On December 13, Ariados won the PokerStars $215 Rebuy for $13,000 and propelled his career win total north of 60. He plays as Sasuke234on PokerStars.

  11. [caption width="600"] Matt 'mjw006' Wakeman moved up 9 spots in the rankings this week[/caption] It's Wednesday, which means the PocketFives Rankings have been recalculated. And after a win in the PokerStars Sunday 500 over the weekend for $57,000 officially, Matt 'mjw006' Wakeman moved up nine spots to #4 in the world, his best ranking ever. The Sunday 500 attracted a field of 613 entrants and had a prize pool north of $300,000. In the end, Wakeman defeated Dimitar 'bipbippp' Yosifov and earned 553 points for the rankings. He calls Sydney, Australia home and won a WCOOP $215 No Limit Hold'em Cubed event in September for $82,000, his second largest online tournament score to date. Wakeman now has 150 tracked wins online, 411 top-three finishes, and is up to $5.5 million in career online MTT winnings, two-thirds of which has come on PokerStars. Wakeman is a three-time PocketFives Triple Crown winner, having last accomplished the feat in 2013, and is the #1 player in Australia. He has another $148,000 in live tournament winnings, according to the Hendon Mob. Wakeman told PocketFives, "It feels good to get that high in the rankings. I guess I certainly have been running very well over the past few months. 2016 has been very kind thus far." However, a prolonged stint in the top five doesn't seem to be in the cards, as Wakeman is headed to the Aussie Millions and will be focusing his attention on live poker. Still camped out at #1 in the world this week is Sweden's 'eisenhower1'. He has ruled the roost since September 30 and has three-dozen in the money finishes already in January, including a victory in the Winamax XTASE a week ago for $3,800. His PLB score is 7,371 points and he leads second-ranked 'veeea' by 146. [caption width="450"] 'eisenhower1' is #1 on PocketFives[/caption] Another Swede, 'Ariados', moved up from #14 to #10 this week, two spots off his all-time high of #8 set last year. 'Ariados' won the PokerStars $109 No Limit Hold'em Turbo two days ago for $5,900 and, on January 5, found the winner's circle in the PartyPoker High Roller, Winamax High Roller, and PokerStars.fr Full KO for almost $25,000 total. He has eight tracked wins since the end of November and is poised to climb even further in the rankings in the weeks to come. There are nine players from Sweden in the top 20 of the rankings. One of the country's biggest movers and shakers this week was 'Pot4teUS', who rose 18 spots to settle at #17. 'Pot4teUS' finished third in the PokerStars Sunday 500 over the weekend, the same tournament Wakeman won, and earned $30,000. The same day, he took down the PokerStars.fr Sunday High Roller for over $8,000. On PokerStars, you can find him under the handle 'TanTanSWE'. Ukraine's 'psyhoagromor' moved up 24 spots to #47. He had seven cashes on January 12 alone and owns 33 in the money finishes this month. 'psyhoagromor' is the top-ranked Ukrainian and was ranked as high as #16 in the world in 2014. In 57th place this week, a 25-spot improvement on a week ago, is 'emeriaa'. The Fin final tabled a PokerStars.fr tournament over the weekend for $10,000 and has five scores of at least $5,000 in January. He was absent from the felts between late November and the New Year, but was ranked as high as #17 last year. 'emeriaa' is the #2 player in Finland and tops in the city of Jyvaskyla. [caption width="450"] Grayson 'gray31' Ramage reentered the top 100[/caption] Costa Rica's Grayson 'gray31' Ramage reentered the top 100 at #91. Ramage was a top-ten player in 2011 and won the PokerStars Big $109 four days ago for $16,000. He has amassed $5.5 million in career online tournament earnings and is the second-ranked player in Costa Rica. Ramage told PocketFives, "I've been on the edge of the rankings for a while and just don't put in the volume to get up there much anymore." He also shared his 2016 poker plans: "This year, it'll be more playing and coaching for me. I'll be playing LAPC and Bay 101 next month and mainly focusing on online until then."

The Brazilian rose 32 spots in the Rankings to land at #25 this week after taking down the PokerStars Sunday Second Chance and $109 Rebuy over the weekend. The two cashes were worth almost $50,000 combined and brought his career win total to 108. After reentering his screen names, Mike telksTelker reentered the PocketFives Rankings at #38 in the world.

  13. [caption width="661"] 'C Darwin2' is the #1 player in the PocketFives Rankings[/caption] It has been a volatile last four weeks in the PocketFives Rankings. On January 20, Sweden's 'eisenhower1', who had been #1 for four months, was bucked from the top spot worldwide. Then, 'veeea' assumed the helm for three weeks. Now, there's a new sheriff in town. His name: 'C Darwin2'. He calls Sweden home and has amassed $3.6 million in online tournament winnings over the years. This is the first time he has made it to #1 in the world and was up one spot this week. 'C Darwin2' has 26 in the money finishes already in February, including a $15,000 haul for winning the PartyPoker High Roller, a score that earned him 236 PLB Points, the measure used to determine the rankings. He has 7,341 PLB Points overall and leads second-ranked 'veeea' by almost 200. Swedes appear in five of the top eight spots in the PocketFives Rankings. Grayson 'gray31' Ramagemade waves this week by moving up eight spots from #14 to #6, his highest slotting ever. He finished second in the PokerStars Sunday Million over the weekend for $156,000 after a three-way deal and earned over 700 PLB Points. [caption width="450"] Grayson 'gray31' Ramage[/caption] The Sunday Million score was Ramage's sixth largest all-time. Incredibly, at the end of January, he won a TCOOP $2,100 No Limit Hold'em High Roller for almost $300,000 and 1,268 PLB Points. All-time, he's on the cusp of passing $6 million and is the top-ranked poker player in Costa Rica. "It's definitely nice to have moved up, especially since I've had two huge scores recently," Ramage said. "It's not something I focus on too much since I don't put in that much volume, but of course it would be cool to get to #1 at some point." Norway's 'prebzzz' moved up from #34 to #16 on the strength of a win in the Winamax High Roller on Tuesday for $9,200. On February 4, he took down the PokerStars Thursday Thrill and raked in $52,000, his third largest score ever. 'prebzzz' is the top-ranked Norwegian and was ranked as high as #3 in the world on PocketFives last year. Canada's 'roo_400' jumped up 22 spots to #18, his highest ranking ever. He has $2.6 million in career winnings on PokerStars alone and won the site's Sunday Second Chance over the weekend for $36,000 and 447 PLB Points. 'roo_400' is the top-ranked player in Canada and plays as 'ipuntstacks2' on PartyPoker, where he has $161,000 in lifetime winnings. He is 11 days away from celebrating his 10th anniversary of being a member of the PocketFives community. Jamie 'EzGame89' O'Connor, who hails from Leeds in the UK, entered the top 100 at #59, his best showing ever. The Brit was the fourth-place finisher in the Sunday Million over the weekend and holds 242 top-three finishes in tournaments that PocketFives tracks. In the brick-and-mortar world, O'Connor won a Grosvenor UK Poker Tour Main Event in Luton four years ago for $73,000, his largest live cash to date, according to the Hendon Mob. [caption width="400" align="alignleft"] Jamie 'EZGame89' O'Connor[/caption] Also entering the top 100 this week was Russia's Mikhail 'zinka' Galitskiy, who landed at #64, his best ranking ever. He has taken down four MTTs in February, including the PokerStars Sunday Kickoff for $28,000. Galitskiy is the fifth-ranked Russian and #1 in the riverside city of Perm. His largest cash was worth $74,000 and came after winning the Sunday Warm-Up two years ago. Mike 'MikeyG3' Gentili also set a personal best this week, entering the top 100 of the rankings at #83. He's the top-ranked player in the border town of Windsor, Canada and is just a few hours removed from a victory in the PokerStars Big $162 for $16,000. His January included a final table in a TCOOP event for $25,000, a win in the TCOOP Saturday Super Speedway for $24,000, and a gold medal in the PokerStars Big $55 for $14,000. Finally this week, Vicente 'vicenfish' Delgado Zamorano, who was once ranked #6 worldwide on PocketFives, reentered the top 100 at #93.

  14. [caption width="300" align="alignleft"] Artem 'veeea' Vezhenkov is #1 for the second straight week[/caption] Every streak starts somewhere, whether it's two complete passes in a row or two consecutive days without an accident on the job. For Artem 'veeea' Vezhenkov, Wednesday marked his second week in a row at #1 in the PocketFives Rankings. Vezhenkov has 7,124 PLB Points, the metric used to determine the rankings, almost 100 more than the next closest player, 'eisenhower1'. With so few points separating the top of the leaderboard, however, it remains to be seen whether Vezhenkov will be able to keep the streak alive next week. For now, the top spot is Vezhenkov's to lose. He is also just a few thousand dollars shy of hitting $5 million in career online tournament cashes and finished sixth in the PokerStars Super Tuesday this week for $27,000 and 274 PLB Points. He has racked up seven wins and 26 top-ten finishes this month. Meanwhile, 'eisenhower1' is approaching $8 million in career online MTT winnings and has 7,031 PLB Points, good for second in the world. He has two wins and 13 top-ten finishes so far in January and enjoyed a 16-week stint at #1 before Vezhenkov bucked him from the top spot last week. You can find him on PartyPoker under the user name 'FergieTime5' and he is the top-ranked player in Sweden. [caption width="450"] Sweden's 'eisenhower1' is #2 this week[/caption] Another Swede, 'lena900', made waves this week after moving up from #8 in the world to #5, three spots off his all-time high. He has seven wins in January, the largest of which was worth $13,000 and came via a victory in a W Series event on Winamax. The same day, he took second in the PartyPoker High Roller for another $6,900. He plays as 'whoozz' on Full Tilt and 'tutten7' on 888. Outside the top ten, England's 'woody1234321' moved up from #39 to #13, his highest ranking ever. He won a TCOOP $215 No Limit Hold'em Turbo over the weekend for $118,000 and almost 900 PLB Points, helping him catapult up the rankings. 'woody1234321' is the top-ranked player from the UK and is closing in on $3 million in lifetime winnings. Helio 'hneves182' Neveshad the largest rankings increase inside the top 100, moving from #98 to #23. The Brazilian won the PokerStars $22 No Limit Hold'em Cubed for $7,000 just a few days after taking down the opening TCOOP event for $111,000 and 1,224 PLB Points. This is the highest Neves has ever been ranked and he is the top dog in Brazil. Check out a recent interview with the 23rd-ranked player here. [caption width="450"] Helio 'hneves182' Neves[/caption] "It feels pretty cool," Neves said on Wednesday. "I was, for a long time, purely a heads-up sit and go player and always wanted to move up the Sharkscope leaderboards. Now, only eight months into playing MTTs seriously, I feel like it's far beyond what I thought I'd be realistically able to accomplish in such a short period of time." After reentering his screen names, Norway's 'prebzzz' reentered the top 100 at #37. This former #3 ranked player finished second in the PokerStars Big $162 a week ago for $15,000 and has 2,360 tracked in the money finishes for a total of $2.7 million. 'prebzzz' is the top-ranked PocketFiver from Norway. Finally, after joining PocketFives last week, Canada's 'roo_400' debuted at #42. He has $3.7 million in career online winnings and final tabled the PartyPoker High Roller last week for $14,000. He took second in the same tournament in late December under the user name 'ipuntstacks2'.

  15. [caption width="450"] Yuri Martins opened 2015 as the #1 ranked player[/caption] There were nine players who laid claim to the title of #1 in the PocketFives Rankingsin 2015. Plus, there were 14 lead changes during the year, which means there was plenty of movement atop of the Rankings. Let's take a look back at the #1 ranked players of 2015. 2015 began with Brazil's Yuri Martins ranked #1. He had assumed the role on December 27, 2014 and was the top dog until January 21, 2015, or five weeks. Martins won a WCOOP bracelet in September in a $1,050 Pot Limit Omaha High-Low event. Another Brazilian, Joao joaomathiasMathias, bumped his fellow countryman from the #1 spot on January 21. He held down the fort for one week until January 28 when Chris Big HuniHunichen became the #1 ranked online poker player in the world. Hunichen won the PokerStars Super Tuesday around the same time and was ranked #1 on PocketFives for five weeks. It was the only time Hunichen has been ranked #1. On March 5, Nico PokerKaiserFierro and Fedor CrownUpGuyHolz began taking turns at #1. Fierro was #1 for one week before Holz knocked him out, also for a week. Then, Fierro reclaimed the #1 spot before Holz stole it back on March 25. Fierro promptly became the top-ranked player for three weeks until April 22. Fierro won the 888 Mega Deep on March 22 and April 19 to solidify his spot atop the Rankings. [caption width="640"] Nico Fierro spent 21 weeks at #1 in 2015[/caption] On April 25, norfair18 became #1 on PocketFives for the first time in his career. He held the title for two weeks on the strength of a Super Tuesday runner-up finish and Million Dollar Sunday final table before ceding the top spot to Fierro on May 5. Fierro then spent 16 weeks at #1, or almost four months, the longest reign of anyone in 2015. During his run, Fierro took down an OPS event and the 888 Mega Deep. He also earned three PocketFives Triple Crowns. All told, Fierro spent 21 weeks at #1 in 2015, the most of anyone. On August 26, Aaron aguskb Gustavson bucked Fierro from the top spot for a week, the first and only time he has been ranked #1. Gustavson final tabled the Super Tuesday three times in 2015, the best showing of which was a second place finish in June for $52,000. Gustavson is currently ranked 18th in the world on PocketFives. [caption width="450"] Aaron Gustavson was ranked #1 for one week[/caption] One week after Gustavson became #1, StrungOut1assumed the role, also for a week. He won the Sunday Million a few days before becoming #1, a cash worth almost $150,000. Gustavson then retook the #1 spot for a week before Sweden's eisenhower1 became #1 on September 30 and closed out the year on top. eisenhower1 has a PLB score of 7,313 points, only 27 ahead of the second-ranked player, so we could see a changing of the guard in the first week of 2016 when the Rankings are recalculated on Wednesday.

  17. [caption width="450"] 'eisenhower1' is one of four Swedes at the top of the PocketFives rankings[/caption] Sweden is dominating the PocketFives Rankings. It's not like this is anything new, as Swedes are typically staples of the top 10. However, this week, Swedes hold down the top four spots worldwide. Leading the way is 'C Darwin2', who has been #1 on PocketFives since February 10. He continues to pile up cashes, including a second place in the Winamax High Roller on February 28 for $12,000. Four more cashes on Tuesday pushed his PLB score to 7,371 points - 400 more than second place. That spot belongs to Sweden's Niklas "Lena900" Astedt, who is at his all-time high in the rankings after moving up one notch this week. He has 6,956 PLB Points and took down the PokerStars $215 Weekly Six Max over the weekend for almost $13,000, his 86th career win. He is now $71,000 away from hitting $4 million in winnings all-time and is the top-ranked player in the Swedish county of Vastra Gotaland. Swapping places with fellow Swede 'lena900' is 'Ariados', who is at #3 worldwide. He won the PartyPoker High Roller last week for $17,000 and also took down the PokerStars.fr Sunday High Roller and PokerStars Bounty Builder last month for almost $25,000 total. 'Ariados' plays under the screen name 'Sasuke234' on PokerStars, where he has $2.2 million in career winnings. Former #1 ranked 'eisenhower1' rounds out the Swedish contingent. 'eisenhower1' is up one spot this week and just hit $8 million in career online tournament winnings, the ninth most of anyone. He has a PLB score of 6,792 points and plays under the handle 'FergieTime5' on PartyPoker. Joel 'jbrown8777' Brown moved back into the top 10 this week. He was at #15 last Wednesday, but jumped to #9 on the strength of a final table over the weekend in the Sunday Second Chance for $20,000. In the middle of February, he won the PartyPoker High Roller and earned $27,000, his largest score of 2016. The Canadian was ranked as high as #3 in the world last year. Continuing to shoot up the rankings is England's Conor '1_conor_b_1' Beresford, who rocketed from #47 to #19 this week, his highest ranking ever. He has eight wins since February 7, two of which came in the PartyPoker High Roller. The Englishman is the second-ranked player in the UK and tops in the city of York. Also moving up was Russia's 'NoPlanB', who started the week at #44 and ended it at #20, his best showing ever. He's the top-ranked player in Moscow and won the weekend's PokerStars Sunday Second Chance for $37,000 and 455 PLB Points. Three wins in February raised his career total to 119 and he plays as 'EvnomiYa' across most of the major sites. Poland's 'sickpastor' entered the top 100 at #82, his best ranking ever, after winning four tournaments last month. He claimed gold in a TCOOP event on the last day of January for $105,000, his largest cash to date, and just passed $500,000 in career winnings. 'sickpastor' is the top-ranked player Poland has to offer. Reentering the top 100 was Finnish player 'European', who was ranked as high as #3 on PocketFives two years ago. 'European' won the PokerStars $109 Rebuy on Tuesday and is up to $2.6 million in career winnings. He chopped the Sunday Million in late 2014 for $185,000 and has also final tabled a Six Max SCOOP event for over $200,000. [caption width="450"] Rick 'TheClaimeer' Trigg reentered the top 100 at #90[/caption] Finally, England's Rick 'TheClaimeer' Trigg reentered the top 100 at #90. Trigg was once #4 on PocketFives and won the PokerStars $11 Rebuy over the weekend to boost his bankroll by $9,200. The Brit has 552 top three finishes and was the 2014 Yearly PLB champion. Here are the top 10 players in the rankings this week along with the PLB score for each: C Darwin2 - 7,371 points lena900 - 6,957 points Ariados - 6,906 points eisenhower1 - 6,793 points gray31 - 6,738 points SvZff - 6,702 points MendaLerenda - 6,687 points Smeckten - 6,612 points jbrown8777 - 6,593 points veeea - 6,468 points
  18. [caption width="300" align="alignleft"] 'veeea' is the new #1 ranked player on PocketFives[/caption] We have a new #1 ranked player on PocketFives. After a 16-week run at #1, Sweden's 'eisenhower1' dropped to #2 in the PocketFives Rankings this week. Your new #1: 'veeea', who has been ranked #2 for much of the last four months. 'veeea' has been on fire in January. He has won seven tournaments so far this month, including the PokerStars $215 No Limit Hold'em Turbo (twice), PokerStars $109 No Limit Hold'em Turbo, PartyPoker Heavyweight Drago, PartyPoker High Roller, PokerStars $55 No Limit Hold'em Deep Stack, and PokerStars $33 Cubed. All told, the seven wins were worth over $35,000 and just over 1,000 PLB Points, the measure used to determine the rankings. 'veeea' has 7,220 PLB Points and leads 'eisenhower1' by 107. Therefore, there could easily be a changing of the guard again next Wednesday when the scores are recalculated. 'eisenhower1' had been ranked #1 since September 30, and his 16 weeks in the top spot tied for the eighth longest reign by anyone. Here's a look at the longest stints at #1 in the PocketFives Rankings over the years: Cliff 'JohnnyBax' Josephy – 74 weeks (April 18, 2005 to September 18, 2006) Chad 'M8kingmoves' Batista – 45 weeks (August 22, 2007 to July 2, 2008) Steve 'gboro780' Gross – 24 weeks (February 25, 2009 to August 12, 2009) Cal 'cal42688' Anderson – 22 weeks (September 5, 2012 to February 6, 2013) Alex 'AJKHoosier1' Kamberis – 18 weeks (September 24, 2008 to January 28, 2009) Griffin 'Flush_Entity' Benger – 18 weeks (March 14, 2012 to July 18, 2012) Steve 'gboro780' Gross – 17 weeks (February 24, 2010 to June 23, 2010) Nico 'PokerKaiser' Fierro – 16 weeks (May 6, 2015 to August 26, 2015) 'eisenhower1' – 16 weeks (September 30, 2015 to January 20, 2016) Chris 'Gettin Daize' Oliver – 14 weeks (August 28, 2010 to November 24, 2010) Sweden's 'Ariados' moved up three spots from #10 to #7 this week. Like 'veeea', he has made mincemeat of the online poker felts this month, winning nine MTTs: the PokerStars.fr Full KO (twice), Winamax High Roller, PartyPoker High Roller (twice), PokerStars $109 No Limit Hold'em Turbo, iPoker Sunday Masters, and iPoker €25,000 Grand Tuesday. This is the highest 'Ariados' has ever been ranked on PocketFives. He plays as 'Sasuke234' on PokerStars, where he has $2.1 million in tracked winnings. 'Ariados' won his second PocketFives Triple Crown three days ago and is the third-ranked player in Sweden. 'Ariados' told PocketFives that being ranked #7 is "very motivating." When asked if he could take over the top spot, the Swede responded, "I don't think it's impossible by any means, but I'd have to continue to put in a lot of volume and also hopefully score something bigger, but I'm gonna need quite a bit of luck for that part." One of the biggest jumps of the week inside the top 100 went to Malta's Pim 'joppiesaus' de Goede, who shot up 42 spots from #70 to #28. He won the Sunday Warm-Up over the weekend for $80,000 and 714 PLB Points, his third largest tracked score to date. This is the highest de Goede has ever been ranked on PocketFives. [caption width="640"] Pim 'joppiesaus' de Goede moved up 42 spots this week[/caption] "I've been dedicating more time to my MTT and short-stack play over the last year or so," de Goede said. "I feel like things are going well regarding my skill level, although I still feel like I am a cash game, deep-stack player by heart. I do spend a lot of time on the cash game tables still." Having found himself in the top 30, de Geode admits being that high is more about bragging rights within his circle of friends than anything else. "I am excited to have a great result in the Warm-Up and move up in the rankings. For me, it's more about the fun competition between friends to see who can obtain the highest ranking," said de Geode. "However, it's a pity that the highest ranked player is by no means the best player. Who is going to tell me how I should be playing my J-3 double-suited under-the-gun now? I am #28 in the world; I must have figured it all out." London's '10111420' reentered the top 100 at #69, 14 spots off his all-time high. He is fresh off hitting $1 million in career online MTT winnings and took down the PokerStars Big $55 for $13,000 four days ago. He is the top-ranked player in the English city and #8 in the UK. Finally this week, Ozgur 'phaplap' Arda returned to the top 100 at #85, four spots shy of his best ranking ever. Arda started off 2016 with a bang by winning the PokerStars Sunday Supersonic for $45,000, one of three tracked victories this month. For his career, the Turkish player has 3,307 in the money finishes for an average of $713 each.

  19. [caption width="450"] eisenhower1 is #1 for the 15th straight week[/caption] It's Wednesday, which means we recalculate the PocketFives Online Poker Rankings. Last week, Sweden's 'eisenhower1' led second-ranked 'veeea' by just 27 PLB Points, the measure used to determine the Rankings. This week, the Swede has widened his lead to 310 points. This is his 15th straight week at #1 in the world on PocketFives. 'eisenhower1' only has two wins in online MTTs we track since November 3. However, he has made up for it with final table after final table. He finished seventh in a PartyPoker Pokerfest event on November 8 for $14,000 and won the site's Heavyweight Uppercut for $8,400 on December 22. He had five final tables in the first five days of January and sits with a PLB score of 7,348 points. It's not easy being ranked at the top of PocketFives for 15 weeks in a row. Chris 'moorman1' Moorman, who has been ranked #1 a total of 22 times since 2008, gave us his take on eisenhower1: "He's a super consistent, tough player who has been around forever and really stood the test of time." [caption width="550"] Chris "moorman1" Moorman[/caption] As we said at the top, 'veeea' is the second-ranked player in the Rankings this week once again, with 7,038 PLB Points. He won the 24hPoker Sunday Drive two weeks ago and has resumed churning out MTT cashes after a one-week break for the New Year. He is the owner of 541 top-three finishes in tournaments we track and is on the cusp of passing $5 million in winnings for his career. Coming off two holiday weeks, there was virtually no movement in the top 10 of the PocketFives Rankings. However, we had two players move up to #11 and #12 in the world, their highest ranking ever, and are knocking on the door of the top 10. We'll start with Sweden's DeathbyQuads, who rose six spots to #11. He took second in the PokerStars $109 Sunday Kickoff on January 3 and raked in $22,000. He also won the site's Bounty Builder on December 22 for $7,700, his 66th career tracked victory. 'DeathbyQuads' is at $1.3 million in online tournament winnings across 2,844 cashes. Also reaching a personal best in the Rankings this week was Rocco 'RoccoGe' Palumbo, who moved up nine spots to #12. Palumbo won the PokerStars $109 No Limit Hold'em Turbo in recent days as well as the PokerStars.fr €100 Night on Stars. The same day as that cash, he placed second in the PartyPoker Weekender and put back $16,000. [caption width="468"] RoccoGe moved up 9 spots to #12[/caption] Meanwhile, Moorman moved up 17 spots to #27 this week and told us we should expect him to climb all the way back to #1 in 2016: "I've set one of my goals this year to make it back to #1 at some point in 2016. I will be putting in a lot of volume again this year." Moorman took second in the PokerStars $215 Rebuy three days ago for $10,000 and is approaching $13 million in online MTT winnings, the most of anyone by almost $4 million. Mexico's 'norfair18' reentered the top 100 at #57. This former #1 player won the Winamax Grand over the weekend for $38,000 and 380 PLB Points. He took gold in the site's High Roller two days before that and is just a few thousand dollars shy of hitting $2 million for his career. He is the second-ranked player in Mexico and plays as 'aggr0vated'on PartyPoker and 888. Finally this week, we wanted to single out Shyam 's_dot111' Srinivasan, who reentered the top 100 at #70. He took down last weekend's PokerStars Sunday Second Chance for $37,000 and finished fourth in the site's $109 Cubed the same day. He is approaching $8.5 million in career winnings. [caption width="468"] 's_dot111' reentered the top 100 at #70[/caption] Here are the top 10 players in the PocketFives Rankings this week along with the PLB score for each: eisenhower1 - 7,348 points veeea - 7,038 points Smeckten - 6,837 points SvZff - 6,741 points Legenden - 6,561 points C Darwin2 - 6,496 points AnteSvante - 6,384 points IgorK - 6,293 points lena900 - 6,237 points jbrown8777 - 6,144 points
  20. For the seventh straight week, Sweden's eisenhower1is the #1 player worldwide in the PocketFives Online Poker Rankings. His 8,190 PLB Points leads the second-ranked player by more than 1,200, so it's safe to say he'll be ranked #1 for an eighth straight week when the Rankings are recalculated next Wednesday unless someone goes on an epic heater. Over the weekend, eisenhower1 final tabled a PartyPokerPokerfest Super High Roller event and walked away with $14,000. On November 2, he reeled in $36,000 total after winning the PartyPoker $30,000 Guaranteed Super High Roller and getting second in an iPOPS event on the iPoker Network. All told, he has $7.7 million in career online tournament winnings, about half of which has come on PokerStars. Swedes continue to dominate the top of the PocketFives Rankings. Players from the European country hold the top three spots and five of the top seven. Our top-ranked PocketFiver calls the coastal city of Gothenburg home and leads the 608 Swedes with PLB scores. There were no new entrants into the top 10 this week, but Sweden's Yaya24 moved up four spots from #9 to #5, his highest ranking ever. He won a Pokerfest High Roller event at the end of October for $32,000 and has taken down two more MTTs since then to boost his lifetime win total to 98. Yaya24 is within $200,000 of hitting $5 million in career online tournament winnings. Italy's RoccoGe(pictured) moved up 42 spots to settle at #33 in the world. He just hit $3 million in cashes, 3% of which came after winning the PokerStars Super Tuesday last week for $88,000, his second largest score ever. You can find him under the alias sephirot88 on PokerStars and he was ranked as high as #18 on our site last year. Rising 26 spots to land at #65 was Denmark's Brink, who took second in a WCOOP Eight-Game event in September for $166,000, his third largest score all-time. Brink is the second-ranked player in Denmark and is up to $4.4 million in career online tournament winnings across 2,201 cashes. hownorez, from the Czech Republic, entered the top 100 at #72 worldwide, his best showing ever. He just received his first PocketFives Triple Crown after wins in the PokerStars $27 No Limit Hold'em Turbo Knockout, an iPOPS event, and the PokerStars.fr Minuit Express Special in the span of seven days. hownorez is the top-ranked player in his home country.

  21. [caption width="640"] 'eisenhower1' is one of five Swedes ranked in the top 10 on PocketFives (image: PokerNews)[/caption] The Swedes are back in town. Players from Sweden own five of the top 10 spots worldwide in the PocketFives Rankings this week after 'eisenhower1' moved up three spots to #8. He's a former #1 player and could make a serious run to reclaim his crown. 'eisenhower1' was ranked #1 as recently as January and finished second in the 888 Super XL Main Event in late May for $158,000, his second largest career cash ever. On June 7, he won the PokerStars $55 Six Max No Limit Hold'em Hyper-Turbo for $3,800 and 141 PLB Points. That win was his 164th career first place finish. 'eisenhower1' owns $8.5 million in online tournament winnings, the seventh most of anyone, and is the reigning Yearly PLB champion. He has a PLB score of 7,019 points, about 1,200 less than the rankings leader, fellow Swede 'C Darwin2'. Speaking of 'C Darwin2', he has been ranked #1 on PocketFives since June 8 and has 8,202 PLB Points. He continues to churn out wins and final tables to preserve his lead over the rest of the community, including victories in the partypoker Heavyweight $30,000 Guarantee Rebuy and Winamax High Roller this month for over $16,000 combined. 'C Darwin2' has $4.2 million in career online tournament winnings and is enjoying his fourth stint as the #1 ranked player on PocketFives. He has $2.5 million in career winnings on PokerStars alone.

Another Swede, Johannes 'Greenstone25' Korsar, ticked up 11 spots to #25, his best ranking ever. Korsar, who is just a few thousand dollars shy of hitting $8 million for his career, has won the Winamax XTREME and 888 Turbo Mega Deep already this month for over $20,000 total and has eight top-10 finishes to his credit in June. He's the top-ranked online poker player in the Swedish capital of Stockholm. [caption width="640"] Bryan 'bparis' Paris moved back into the top 100 this week[/caption] Canada's Bryan 'bparis' Paris reentered the top 100 at #46, the best top-100 debut of anyone this week. Paris is fresh off winning his fourth PocketFives Triple Crown, the 20th largest ever recorded, and has won five MTTs in June, including the PokerStars Super Tuesday. As a result, Paris passed $9.3 million in career online winnings and is quickly closing in on $10 million. As it stands, he has the third highest career cash total of anybody. Also reentering the top 100 this week was Malta's Davide 'girex91' Marchi, who came in at #59.

  22. [caption width="640"] Sweden's 'C Darwin2' became the #1 player in the PocketFives Rankings for the fourth time[/caption] On February 10, Sweden's 'C Darwin2' ascended to the top of the PocketFives Rankings for the first time. He held down the #1 spot in the world for seven weeks before relinquishing his throne to fellow Swede 'lena900' on March 30. Four weeks later, 'C Darwin2' was back on top, albeit for a week. After another seven days, however, he once again led the way in the rankings, this time holding down the fort for three weeks ending June 1. Last Wednesday, Brazil's Joao 'joaosimaobh' Simao became #1, but 'C Darwin2' wouldn't let him revel for too long. This week, 'C Darwin2' moved into the top spot worldwide for the fourth time. He has a PLB score of 8,215 points to lead the way and is 73 ahead of Simao, who is in second place with 8,142 points. Therefore, there could easily be another changing of the guard next week. Both 'C Darwin2' and Simao have virtually identical lifetime cash totals of $4.2 million. It took 'C Darwin2' 2,284 cashes to get there, an average of $1,849 each, while Simao has 3,979 in the money finishes for his career, an average of $1,066 each. They have five combined six-figure cashes for their careers and almost 500 total top-three finishes in online MTTs. [caption width="640"] Phil 'philroyal888' Mighall entered the top 10 at #8, his highest ranking ever[/caption] Joining 'C Darwin2' and Simao in the top 10 is Phil 'philroyal888' Mighall, who moved up from #16 to #8. This UK player won the PokerStars $1,050 Sunday Grand PLO three days ago for $38,000 and an even 400 PLB Points, the sixth largest score of his career. A week before that, he took down the $215 Fat Tuesday on PokerStars and earned $15,000. This is the highest Mighall has ever been ranked on PocketFives and he's up to #2 in the UK. His four online MTT wins in May pushed his career total to 46 and he's less than $30,000 away from hitting $2 million in lifetime winnings. "It's a great achievement," Mighall said of reaching #8. "I'm feeling very proud." Mighall was the lone new entrant into the top 10 this week. Joining them next week could be Sweden's 'eisenhower1', who moved up from #24 to #11. 'eisenhower1' was ranked #1 on PocketFives as recently as January and just hit $8.5 million in career online winnings, the seventh most of anyone. 'eisenhower1' took second in the 888 Super XL Main Event in May for $158,000, the second largest score of his online poker career and one of four scores of at least $14,000 he turned in last month. Canada's Sebastian 'p0cket00' Sikorski advanced 13 spots to #32. He's a former #1 ranked player and finished second in the PokerStars Hot $215 on May 29 for $13,000 and 216 PLB Points. He had 23 top-10 finishes in May and was last ranked #1 on PocketFives in 2014. Sikorski is the #3 player in Canada and #2 in Ontario.

He took fourth in the PokerStars Sunday Grand over the weekend and booked a $26,000 payday. Two weeks before that, he finished second in a SCOOP $2,100 No Limit Hold'em Three-Max Turbo and put back $71,000, the largest score of his online poker career. Difelice was ranked as high as #43 on PocketFives three years ago and is now the third-ranked player in his hometown of Toronto. He has $2.7 million in career online winnings and is nearing 4,000 total cashes. Brazil's Rodrigo 'rodckz' Motoki entered the top 100 at #96, his highest ranking ever.

  23. [caption width="640"] WCOOP is underway with a former top-ranked PocketFiver grabbing an early win[/caption] This time last year Sweden's 'eisenhower1' was the top-ranked online poker player in the world. With the 2016 PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker now underway, he may be making a move back up the standings relatively quickly. The Swedish pro continued his winning ways Tuesday by taking down the $215 buy-in Six Max Rebuy tournament for $72,339 -- defeating second place finisher 'delfina_47' who received $48,238. The $215 buy-in Event #2 was a six-max tournament that ended in a four-way final table deal, as Pablo 'pablotenisis' Fernández and 'mashenka86' earned $132,054 and $122,900 respectively for finishing in first and second place. PokerStars player 'tua133' finished third for $97,341 and PocketFives member Jay 'Jayshosefat' Smith was also in on the chop -- collecting $99,949 for fourth place.

  24. It was just over four years ago that Christian 'eisenhower1' Jeppsson relinquished his grasp on the #1 ranking on PocketFives, but on Sunday the Swede put himself back into the spotlight by winning the PokerStars Sunday Million. Jeppsson beat out the 10,890-player field in the Sunday Million to win $111,769.63. Brazilain 'EricBolis' finished one place behind Jeppsson for an $81,103.38 score while 'seegul65' rounded out the podium finishers, coming in third for $58,856.74. [ptable zone="Global Poker Article Ad"][ptable zone="GG Poker"][ptable zone="Borgata Poker"] For the second time in just over three months, partypoker server issues lead to the cancellation of their recently re-launched flagship tournament, the partypoker MILLION as well as the rest of the Sunday slate. Dusk Till Dawn owner and partypoker partner Rob Yong took to Twitter to offer an explanation of sorts for the crash that left many players unable to register for any tournament or, in some cases, unable to see any tournament lobbies. The Bounty Builder Series continued on PokerStars with Francisco 'Tomatee' Benitez beating current #1-ranked 'Lena900' to take down Event #89 ($5,200 NLHE High Roller) for $65,634.72 plus an amazing $101,972.65 in bounties. 'Lena900', who wrestled the #1 ranking back from fellow Swede Johannes 'Greenstone25' Korsar on December 28, picked up $65,634.58 and another $5,937.50 in bounties. Tomi 'elmerixx' Brouk earned $44,341.43 from the prize pool and secured $23,066.41 in bounties before being eliminated in third place. For the first time in the short history of the GGPoker GG Masters, the field broke through the 2,000-player barrier. There was still an overlay, but the 2,064 players meant that the $15,168 out of pocket expense was the smallest ever. once 2,062 players were eliminated, the final two players came to an agreement on a deal. Croatia's 'G0spRaf0' took home $39,962 as the champion while 'Bullet-proof' earned $36,809 in the runner-up position. Third place finisher 'LUCKYFISH567' won $22,775. GGPoker ambassador Felipe Ramos made a final table appearance, busting in sixth place for an $8,249 cash.

  25. Sunday was a massive day for online poker with turnouts in tournaments across all sites seeing extraordinary growth. When PokerStars chose March 15 as the date for its 14th Anniversary Sunday Million event, they had no idea that real world events would bring so many players back to the online tables. The $12.5 million guarantee already meant that this event would be the single largest prize pool in PokerStars 19-year history, but it took just under three hours to draw the 62,500 required players that ensured PokerStars wouldn't be out of pocket. Over the next four hours of play, a grand total of 85,432 entries pushed the total prize pool to $17,086,400. The only two events in the history of online poker with bigger prize pools were the 2018 and 2019 partypoker MILLIONS Online, both of which eclipsed $21,000,000. [ptable zone="888poker"][ptable zone="Party Poker NJ"][ptable zone="Global Poker Article Ad"] Late registration in the Sunday Million remains open until the start of Day 2 at 1 PM ET but they have no chance at breaking the record. The 107,000 player cap means the maximum possible prize pool for this event is $21,400,000, which would put it one spot behind the 2018 partypoker MILLIONS Online event and just ahead of last December's MILLIONS Online.

China's 'nowwor880' ended up with the chip lead after accumulating 680,117 chips. Not far behind them is Belgium's 'X_QQ_AA_KK_fish' with 643,093. Rounding out the top three was 'DLSXL' with 576,980.
