  1. Only one player has held the #1 spot for more weeks than Cliff 'JohnnyBax' Josephy, but while 'lena900' has had 10 turns as the #1-ranked player for 97 weeks, Josephy had one run that lasted an astonishing 74 weeks. That level of success has made Josephy a longstanding favorite of the PocketFives community and his PocketFives Legacy Award, which he won at the 2016 American Poker Awards, earned him the #7 seed in the Clubs bracket and an automatic bye into the second round. If Josephy wants to continue to add to his growing list of accolades, he'll need to survive a Clubs bracket that includes the likes of #1 seed Sebastian 'p0cket00' Sikorski, Fabrizio 'SixthSenSe19' Gonzalez, Fedor Holz, and his former protege Kevin 'BeL0WaB0Ve' Saul. Enter the #1 Number One Contest Now! p0cket00 (#1) vs StrungOut1 (#16) Sebastian 'p0cket00' Sikorski earned the #1 seed in this bracket thanks to being one of just six players to have worked their way into the #1 ranking on six different occasions. Those six reigns, turned into 28 weeks at #1 for Sikorski which, in addition to his seven Triple Crowns (good for 10th all-time), makes him one of the most accomplished players in PocketFives history. Michael 'StrungOut1' Wasserman held the #1 spot for one week in September 2015. He won two Triple Crowns before having his results no longer tracked by PocketFives. SixthSenSe19 (#2) vs Doc Sands (#15) Fabrizio 'SixthSenSe19' Gonzalez was ranked #1 on PocketFives on three separate occasions for a combined 21 weeks between October 2016 and March 2017. The Uruguayan has accumulated more than $10 million in lifetime online earnings thanks to PokerStars WCOOP and SCOOP titles as well as partypoker Powerfest wins. His path to Round 2 isn't an easy one though. David 'Doc Sands' Sands might have held the #1 ranking only one time, but his six-week reign and $3 million in online earnings, combined with his status as a popular member of PocketFives, make him a threat to advance. gboro780 (#3) vs SvZff (#14) It somehow feels like Steve 'gboro780' Gross might be a tad underrated as the #3 seed. Gross reached #1 on four separate occasions and has the fourth-longest combined time at #1 at 55 weeks. A majority of Gross' $6.2 million in lifetime earnings came before Black Friday as did his two Triple Crowns. Steven van Zadelhoff is the player standing in Gross' way of a first-round win. The Dutchman earned the #1 ranking in December 2017, just two months after he won the PokerStars WCOOP Main Event for $1.6 million. He held the top spot for a single week and has $11.4 million in earnings plus a Triple Crown to his credit. r4ndomr4gs (#4) vs aguskb (#13) Andreas 'r4ndomr4gs' Berggren is part of the army of Swedish superstars who have held the #1 spot. Berggren first took the top spot in May 2014 and held onto it for one week before losing it to fellow Swede Lukas 'lukethafluke' Berglund. He grabbed it back two weeks later for a final two weeks on top. He's also one of just 13 players with at least $14 Million in earnings. Aaron 'aguskb' Gustavson could be in line for an upset here. Gustavson spent one more week on top than Berggren over his two reigns. djk123 (#5) vs Greenstone25 (#12) With three times on top of the PocketFives Rankings and a pair of WSOP bracelets, Dan 'djk123' Kelly is one of the most decorated players in the field. He no longer plays professionally, but during his time at the top of the Rankings, Kelly was one of the most respected MTT grinders on the planet. His first-round opponent, Johannes 'Greenstone25' Korsar is another member of the Swedish contingent in the field. Korsar was #1 for three weeks in December 2019 and was only displaced by fellow Swede 'lena900'. 1_conor_b_1 (#6) vs BeL0WaB0Ve (#11) This matchup is going to be one to keep an eye on and could come down to a battle of American and British voters. Kevin 'BeL0WaB0Ve' Saul is a legendary figure to most long-time PocketFivers and his seven-week run at #1 in 2006-2007 helped solidify that position. His longtime popularity makes him a threat to upset the #6 seed, Conor '1_conor_b_1' Beresford who brings a 29 straight week reign at #1 as his leading credential. He also has $15 Million in earnings and a trophy case full of some of online poker's most prestigious hardware. Tmay420 (#8) vs CrownUpGuy (#9) Some voters may consider live poker success and that makes Fedor 'CrownUpGuy' Holz a threat to upset Tim 'Tmay420' West. Holz became #1 on three occasions, each time holding onto it for a single week. He won the 2014 PokerStars WCOOP Main Event and then went onto win more than $32 Million in live tournaments. West was #1 for seven weeks straight beginning in late 2006. He's won more than $4 Million online and nearly the same event in live events.

  2. In the second half of July, ten PocketFives members scored their $1 million cash badges. Among them was Conor Beresford (pictured, right), who is known as 1_conor_b_1 on PocketFives and captured his new profile badge on July 18. He gleaned, "It was a nice surprise when someone messaged me telling me I'd reached the $1 million cash badge milestone." Beresford is one of eight PocketFivers with PLB scores from the walled city of York, England and earnedSupernova Elite status on PokerStars last year. "It was a grind last year playing lower-stakes Six-Max Hypers," he said, "but it was a very nice stepping stone in the right direction." So far this year, he has generated 700,000 VPPs and intends on shooting for 2 million by the time 2014 is over. His largest online poker score was worth $130,000 and came by virtue of chopping the weekly PokerStars Sunday Million in 2012. The significance of the cash was pretty major, according to Beresford: "At the time, I was in a sizable amount of makeup, so it was huge. It felt like a dream, to be honest. Not many people get that opportunity in their lifetime, but I've been blessed enough to have it happen at least once." In late 2013, Beresford finished fourth in a WCOOP $109 No Limit Hold'em event for $58,000 and, so far this year, has taken down the Hotter $55 and $215 No Limit Hold'em, both on PokerStars, for a combined $45,000. "I used to play with local friends from school when I was 15," he said of how he got started in the game. "I was always watching poker TV shows on CH4. Those got me more intrigued about the game, so I looked further into it. Eventually, I hit the online scene when it was possible." Beresford was grinding online nightly as soon as he turned 18. "I got off to a firing start," he explained, "so I was intending on taking it very seriously. But, I was trying to keep it hidden from my family, as I didn't want them to follow the stereotypes and just consider it a 'gamble.' I lived with my aunt at the time and she actually made me go out and get a job, so at one point I was working in a call center from 9am to 5pm and then coming home and playing poker. I remember coming in fifth in the Sunday Million around 7am and then going to work like 90 minutes later." When he's not playing poker, Beresford enjoys playing other online games and traveling with friends. In fact, he has been a nomad for the last year-and-a-half and has now finally settled back into his home in England. Beresford has found his way to #100 worldwide in the PocketFives Rankings, his highest position ever, and is #9 in the UK. Check out who else has earned their $1 million cash badge by clicking here.

  3. [caption width="659"] Career stats for February's MPLB winner, 'lena900'[/caption] Given that players from Sweden make up the top four worldwide in the PocketFives Rankings, it should come as no surprise that a Swede won the February Monthly PocketFives Leaderboard, or MPLB. His name: 'lena900'. Not coincidentally, he won the MPLB in January as well. This is the first time a person has won back-to-back Monthly PLB titles since 2009, when Michael 'rock3656' Rocco won it in June and July of that year for 2,732 and 3,339 points, respectively. Astedt is now in a five-way tie with two career MPLB wins, joining the likes of Cal 'cal42688' Anderson and Griffin 'Flush_Entity' Benger. Nico 'PokerKaiser' Fierro won the MPLB three times in 2015 (April, June, August), but none of his wins were back-to-back. Last month, he generated 2,981 PLB Points en route to his first MPLB title. Sweden is now up to six MPLB titles, with 'lena900' accounting for one-third of the country's output in that department. 2,625 PLB Points was the winning score for 'lena900' this time around. The largest cash he racked up during the truncated month was worth $12,000 for taking down the PokerStars $215 Weekly Six Max No Limit Hold'em. He earned about the same amount for getting second in the Winamax High Roller one week prior. Other solid scores included a win in the bwin High Roller for $11,000 and a final table in the 888 Whale for $10,000. He has zoomed up to #2 worldwide in the PocketFives Rankings, the Swede's highest slotting ever. Conor '1_conor_b_1' Beresford finished second in the February MPLB race with 2,455 points. He's ranked #19 in the world, his highest position ever, and won six tournaments in the second half of February alone. Additionally, he final tabled the PokerStars Sunday 500 and Sunday Warm-Up on back-to-back weekends for over $50,000 total. Beresford is #2 in the UK and narrowly missed out on scoring the country's ninth MPLB title. "February went pretty well," Beresford said. "I've had lots of solid Sundays in the past month or so, usually on PokerStars. I finally decided to start playing on PartyPoker and that has been going well. PartyPoker looks like it could make a comeback, so to speak. I'm impressed with their tournament schedule and the Powerfest series is really nice as well. If only they could get some new software. I'm not a big fan of the current software, but I believe they could really compete if they tweak a few things. I really enjoy the structure of the tournaments there too." Third place in the standings went to Brandon 'tedSTRETCH' Merrill, who racked up 2,440 points during the 29 days of February. Merrill, who moved from Costa Rica to Colombia last year, picked up his fourth PocketFives Triple Crown in February after wins on PokerStars.fr, PokerStars, and 888, and he sits at #39 worldwide in the rankings. Like 'lena900' and Beresford, it's his best showing ever. [caption width="639"] Brandon 'tedSTRETCH' Merrill finished third in February[/caption] Queensland, Australia's 'Corlusion' was the fourth place finisher on the February MPLB leaderboard. He recorded his largest online score ever last month, a second place finish in the PokerStars Super Tuesday for $68,000, which was triple his previous best. That score earned him 457 PLB Points, one-fifth of the 2,360 he gained for the month. The Aussie is #135 in the world and #3 in Australia, both personal bests. Rounding out the top five in the February MPLB standings was Norway's 'prebzzz', who finished with 2,280 points. He won the PokerStars Thursday Thrill on February 4 for $52,000, his third largest online poker cash to date, and also took down the PartyPoker High Roller last month, adding another $11,000 to his bankroll. The Norwegian was ranked as high as #3 on PocketFives last year. Here were the top 10 finishers in the February MPLB: lena900 - 2,625.06 points 1_conor_b_1 - 2,455.58 points tedSTRETCH - 2,440.57 points Corlusion - 2,360.65 points prebzzz - 2,280.39 points SvZff - 2,273.04 points hellohellohello - 2,266.37 points r4ndomr4gs - 2,251.03 points Big Huni - 2,203.15 points MiracleQ - 2,115.90 points
  4. [caption width="300" align="alignleft"] Russia's Aleksandr 'NoPlanB' Mordvinov won the May PocketFives Leaderboard[/caption] Like other poker players, Russia's Aleksandr 'NoPlanB' Mordvinov hit it big during the PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker last month. During the series' Main Event, he made the final table and finished in ninth place for $104,000, the largest score of his online poker career. He also earned 756 PLB Points for the PocketFives Rankings. Those points helped secure the win in the May Monthly PocketFives Leaderboard. All told throughout the 31-day period, 'NoPlanB' earned 3,899 PLB Points and edged out the second place tally belonging to Conor '1_conor_b_1' Beresford by 50. Needless to say, it was a close finish between two extremely talented players. Mordvinov started May off on the right foot, finishing second in the PokerStars Sunday Grand for $63,000 and 445 PLB Points. That tournament had 455 entrants and a prize pool of $455,000. The $63,000 he got for winning it was his fifth largest score all-time. On May 15, he found the winner's circle of an online MTT that PocketFives tracks for the first time in May, and it was a big one. He took down the partypoker High Roller for $20,000 and 317 PLB Points. The same day, he took down the 888 Turbo Mega Deep for $13,000 and piled on another 261 PLB Points. Two days later, the Russian won the PokerStars Hot $162 for $13,000 and almost 300 PLB Points. The same day as his Hot $162 win, he had an encore performance in the Winamax High Roller, taking that tournament down for $14,000 and another 229 PLB Points. Those wins made up his second career PocketFives Triple Crown, an award that requires a person to win three $10,000 prize pool tournaments across three sites tracked for the rankings within a week. His SCOOP Main Event ninth place run happened on May 22 and, one day later, he cashed in a SCOOP $1,050 No Limit Hold'em event for another $11,000. This is the first MPLB title that Mordvinov has won. And it's just the third MPLB title that Russia has won over the years. His 3,899 PLB Points were the most by any MPLB winner since the 3,992 scored by Sweden's 'eisenhower1' last September. Because of his recent success, 'NoPlanB' is up to #8 worldwide in the rankings, two spots off his all-time high set earlier this year, and is the top-ranked Russian. [caption width="640"] Conor '1_conor_b_1' Beresford finished second in the May MPLB race[/caption] Beresford won the partypoker High Roller on the seventh day of May for $11,000 and 223 PLB Points. One day later, he took gold in the site's Super High Roller, a $2,600 buy-in tournament, for a $64,000 score and almost 500 PLB Points. Beresford's biggest score during May came on the 17th in a $2,100 No Limit Hold'em Four-Max event. He won that tournament, which had 308 entrants, for $171,000 officially and a mammoth 784 PLB Points. And if that weren't enough, the next day, he was the runner-up in a partypoker Powerfest event and racked up $28,000. The SCOOP and partypoker Super High Roller wins were the largest and third largest of Beresford's career, respectively. He's up to 84 career wins and is the top-ranked online poker player in the United Kingdom. Third place in the May MPLB went to Sweden's 'lena900', who had a score of 3,565 points. His big hit during the month came in a SCOOP $2,100 Pot Limit Omaha Heads-Up tournament. He finished third in that event for $35,000. Also in May, he won the partypoker High Roller for $26,000 and took down a Powerfest High Roller event for $15,000. The top 10 in May's MPLB: NoPlanB - 3,899.90 points 1_conor_b_1 - 3,849.70 points lena900 - 3,565.86 points Tiny_molester - 3,448.78 points Pot4teUS - 3,420.76 points p0cket00 - 3,390.05 points decay - 3,250.75 points C Darwin2 - 3,247.25 points 3p3nipa - 3,236.82 points Ekziter - 3,135.76 points
  5. [caption width="640"] Fabrzio ‘SixthSenSe19’ Gonzales seems to quite comfortable sitting at #1 (SHRPO photo)[/caption] Just two weeks Uruguayan poker pro Fabrzio ‘SixthSenSe19’ Gonzales took over the #1 spot in the PocketFives Rankings for the first time and he doesn’t seem to be willing to let go of it any time soon. Gonzales maintained his hold on top spot this past week and has nearly a 1,000-point lead over his closest competitor. Gonzalez had just one cash this past week that was big enough to count toward his PLB score. He finished fourth in the $1,050 Sunday Grand Pot Limit Omaha event for $15,872 and 193.2 points. He now sits 930.61 ahead of the rest of the field. The player closest to Gonzalez is Brazil’s Joao Mathias ’joaomathias’ Baumgarten. The former #1-ranked player had four qualifying cashes this week including two big wins on PokerStars, first in the $320 Omania High Roller (Five Card PLO, Six Max) for $8,455/198.24 and then in the $55 Bounty Builder for $6,152/208.33. He also had a fourth place finish in the PokerStars Big $55 on last Thursday for $4,022/115.37 and a ninth place finish on Sunday in the partypoker Super High Roller for $5,863/109.51. Alex ‘alexd2’ Dimitrov cashed a total off 37 times this past week, with four of them earning enough points to add to his PLB score. The first came via a third place finish in the 888poker $50,000 Volcano for $10,356/153.57 last Tuesday. He then followed that up with a third place finish in the PokerStars Big $215 on Thursday for $7,039/137.45. That same day he also took down the partypoker High Roller for $11,069/178.89. He wrapped up the week with a runner-up finish in the PokerStars Big $44 for $8,831/189.98. The top two ranked Swedish players, ‘C Darwin2’ and ‘lena900’ also held onto their respective #4 and #5 rankings. ‘C Darwin2’ had two cashes big enough to add to his PLB score and both were wins. The first came in the partypoker Heavyweight: The Uppercut which earning him $10,376/236.85 on Sunday. His next win, which was also his next cash, came two days later in the PokerStars Hot $55 for $8,536/229.35. Not to be outdone, 'Lena900' also had two qualifying cashes. The first was also a win in the partypoker High Roller on Tuesday which added $11,574 to his bankroll and 192.35 points to his PLB score. His second qualifying score came from a fourth place finish in the PokerStars $215 Bounty Builder for $6,472/132.31. While there was no change in position for any of the top five this week, spots 6 - 8 were jumbled all around thanks to a big week from Andreas ‘r4ndomr4gs’ Berggren. The Swede had two wins this past week including topping the field in the partypoker High Roller on Sunday for $15,948/281.96. He then won the PokerStars $109 No Limit Hold’em (Six Max, Hyper Turbo) for $4,552/$152.15. He then added more to his PLB score, finishing 10th in the $1,050 PokerStars Sunday Grand (NLHE) for $5,013/144.73. Those three scores allowed him to move from #8 to #6. In the process of moving up the rankings, Berggren leapfrogged Patrick 'pleno1' Leonard and Conor '1_conor_b_1' Beresford for the only movement this week. No players fell out of the top 10.

  6. [caption width="450"] Conor Beresford has a one-track mind - not a #1 track mind (PokerStars photo)[/caption] On PocketFives.com, player rankings are obviously pretty darn important. But while some players revel in the glory of a high ranking, for others - like Conor ‘1_conor_b_1’ Beresford - it’s really just a by-product or something far more important. “I don't really follow my rank that much to be honest,” Beresford says. The young player, who has more than $3.8 million in online winnings, currently sits at the #2 spot in the United Kingdom, and #14 in the world. He’s been crushing so far in 2017, and only a day or two ago was at the top of the UK rankings. Things change quickly, though; something Beresford knows well. “It's nice to know that I was #1 in the UK, but in my opinion it just means I'm one of the most consistent grinders at the highest stakes, which is nice. “There's no true way of setting up a leaderboard that is based on pure skill alone because of the variance in poker, so being up there on what is probably considered the most popular leaderboard in terms of tournaments feels good.” So we shouldn’t expect to see Beresford grinding 12 hours a day every day to get to the worldwide number one spot then? “Number one in the world would be nice, but I'm really just here for the money at the end of the day, not so much the glory.” It’s a mentality that Beresford has held throughout his short but super successful career to date. Back in 2012, he was working in a call centre from 9am to 5pm, heading home to his aunt’s house, and playing online poker until the early hours. A $65K Sunday Million chop in April 2012 got the ball rolling for him (yet he still went to work an hour later). “Things have definitely changed a lot since then,” he tells us. “I lived in Vancouver for a while, and since then I have been living in Amsterdam on and off while travelling to most of the EPT stops.” Beresford has won $142K in live poker, his biggest score coming from a 12th place finish in the 2015 World Series of Poker Europe Main Event for €46K. But you might not see him at many of the new PokerStars Championships and Festivals. “I'm a bit disappointed about the PokerStars stops this year so far,” he says, referring specifically to events coming up in Panama and Macau. “I've heard from multiple people that these are less desirable places to visit and I much prefer European cities just for the travel convenience alone.” So if winning a big live event isn’t necessarily a direct goal, what’s he shooting for right now? “I have no specific goals, but I like to keep my volume as high as possible while we still have the chance,” he says. “It’s tough to really say what will happen with online poker over the next few years, so I'd like to make the most of it while I still can.” He’s certainly been doing that. In February 2016, Beresford chopped the Sunday Warm-Up for $41K. Then, in May, he won the PartyPoker High Roller for $64K. A week later, he won Event #31 of the PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker; a $2,100 4-Max NLHE tournament for $171K - his biggest score to date. The amazing run continued throughout the year, culminating in a Sunday Warm-Up win for $43K in December 2016. This year has got off to a great start too; in January, Beresford chopped the Super Tuesday for $56K. “I had a pretty large stack throughout that Super Tuesday,” he says. “There was also another player with a large stack on the final table who played crazy, but I don't really remember any specific hands. I suppose Graftekkel attempting to steal vs my open for around 20bb with J7s vs my QQ was pretty big, as I considered him the biggest threat at the table.” In order to cope with those threats, Beresford - like most poker pros - credits talking to others as the best way to improve your game. “That's not to say that you wouldn't be able to make it on your own,” he adds. “But when you can go over spots with different opinions from different people, it really makes you think about the game a lot more.”
  7. Steve 'BetrThanPhil' Tripp took the headlines on Day 3 of the PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker after grinding his way to victory in Event #8 (High) for a score of $100,343. After 12 more events came to their conclusion on Tuesday, Tripp claimed his first SCOOP title after defeating "0PIGGYBANK" heads-up, with the latter taking away $86,213 after a deal between the two players had been agreed. It was Tripp's second largest recorded online cash after he won $193,804 for taking down FTOPS Event #9 back in 2010. Alex 'lynskey99' Lynskey came through an 8,562 player field in Event #8 (Medium) and claimed the first-place prize of $60,073. 'Kobasteris' was the player to lose the heads-up battle and took away $42,472 in second place. The biggest field of the day came in Event #8 (Low) after 27,101 players paid the $11 tournament entry fee and created a $265,589.80 prize pool, with Marcos 'Marcos Epa' Epaminondas taking the majority share. The Brazilian's prize for outlasting the enormous field was $13,172, the honour of a SCOOP title to his name and his largest recorded online cash to date. In Event #7 (High), 'aDrENalin710' beat out 120 opponents to win a score of $27,202, with 'BelovCaXa' banking $12,246 after securing victory in Event #7 (Medium). Russia's 'Iwantbearich' narrowly missed out on adding a SCOOP title to their previously won PokerStars MicroMillions gold medal after losing a heads-up battle to 'kagor82' in Event #7 (Low). The victor bagged a score of $4,841 with the Russian having to settle for a second-place prize of $3,371. Day 3 saw the first HORSE events of this year's series played out with 'CMoosepower' beating Luke 'lb6121' Schwartz to the title in Event #9 (High). Schwartz already has five SCOOP titles to his name, but the Brit was unable to attain his sixth on this occasion and had to settle for the runners-up prize of $24,800, with 'CMoosepower' earning $34,800 for the win. Event #9 (Medium) saw Russia's 'Zapahzamazki' record their second largest online cash after they came through an 823 field to take the title for $15,431.
