  1. Brazil’s Bruno ‘brunovolks’ Volkmann is on the verge of a breakthrough. Volkmann is a key member of the trio of Brazilians who have been occupying the upper echelons of the Online Poker Rankings for weeks on end. Of course, there’s 2020 Rising Star of the Year, Brunno ‘bbotteon’ Botteon who, this week, continued his reign as the #1-ranked player in the world for the fifth week running. Then there’s Yuri ‘Yuri Martins’ Dzivieleski, the superstar MTT professional who sits at #5, looking to make another run at the top spot which he last held in 2015. Volkmann, currently ranked at #6, has been grinding relentlessly and reaping the rewards of major scores. Throughout the last half of 2020 and right into the New Year, his results have put him in a position to rise back into the worldwide top-5. In recent months, some of Volkmann’s biggest scores in his career have taken place while battling in the weekly $10K buy-in Super MILLION$ tournament on the GGPoker network. In September 2020, Volkmann locked up one of the biggest scores of his career when he outlasted a tough final table that included Jans Arends, Daniel Dvoress, and Matthias Eibinger to capture the $564,947 first-place prize. He was back at a Super MILLION$ final table in November where he finished in fourth place, good for another $179,542 and 592.04 PLB points. Since the start of the Super MILLION$ weekly tournament, Volkmann has finished in the money six times, reached four final tables, and earned over $965,000. While his MILLION$ scores have helped see his career online earnings soar north of $7.8 million, it’s his regular grind that has helped him rack up the PLB points necessary to sit in contention for a top-5 spot. December 27, Volkmann wrapped up 2020 a win in the PokerStars High Roller Club $530 Bounty Builder High Roller for $44,297 and 574.89 PLB points. At the very same time, he finished in fourth place in the PokerStars Blowout Series $5,200 NLHE High Roller for $93,799 and 574.89 PLB points. As good as December was for Volkmann, things have only gotten better in January. He kicked off the year by besting the 194-player field in the Blowout Series Event #28 ($2,100 NLHE, PKO) for $34,173 and 440.45 PLB points and then went on a deep run in the January 10 edition of the PokerStars High Roller Club $1,050 Sunday HR for $13,456 plus 186.93 PLB points. The recently completed Blowout Series continued to be a source of impressive results for Volkmann as he picked up back-to-back five-figure scores in some of the series final events. He went on a deep run in Event #68 ($1,050 NLHE Thursday Thrill) and eventually finished in fourth place for $20,166. At the same time, he was heads-up in Event #71 ($530 NLHE 8-Max, HRC Daily Supersonic). He ended up as the runner-up which added another $26,308 to his bankroll. With over a week left in the month, Volkmann’s start to 2021 includes 24 in-the-money results and more than $133,000 in earnings. His six PLB-qualified cashes resulted in 1,405.20 points added to his running total. In order to make a push for the #1 spot, Volkmann is going to need another really big result or two. Sitting this week with 9,925 PLB points, Volkmann has plenty to keep him entrenched in the top 10, however, both Botteon and the #2-ranked Ivan ‘zufo16’ Zufic both have over 13,500 PLB points which is considerable ground to cover. But Dzivieleski, who is right above Volkmann in the rankings is a mere 316 points ahead. Should Volkmann continue to record the same caliber of impressive results as he has already done in 2021, he may see a return to the elite section of the rankings and possibly break ground into a new career-high spot.

  2. 2020 was a career year for UK online crusher Conor ‘1_conor_b_1’ Beresford who not only spent more than half the year as the #1-ranked player in the world but also earned more than enough PocketFives PLB points to run away as the 2020 Online Poker Player of the Year. For years, Beresford had been considered one of the toughest online poker tournament players in the world, but in 2020 he cemented himself as one of the very best. He hit new heights by earning six six-figure scores, four of which are currently a part of his top-5 results. He also padded his poker resume with victories in high roller events as well as his first PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker title. Beresford’s year got off to a quick start when on January 30 he finished as the runner-up in the GGPoker $2,020 2020 Series Championship for what was easily a new career-high cash of $611,134. Although he settled for second in that spot, Beresford spent the rest of the year finding ways to take home the win in the face of huge paydays at major final tables. For Beresford, those final tables often came with a title attached. He started his 2020 collection in March when he took down the partypoker POWERFEST Event #8 for $70,588. It was then that the online poker industry ramped up its offerings in light of the COVID-19 pandemic which meant more opportunities for players like Beresford. On March 22, he picked up a win in the PokerStars High Rollers Week Kickoff Event ($5,200 NLHE) for $180,438. That fed right into back-to-back six-figure scores, the first of which took place during High Rollers 32 ($5,200 8-Max Main Event) for $378,205. That was closely followed by another huge win in High Rollers 39 ($10,300 NLHE) where Beresford defeated fellow UK pro Michael 'mczhang' Ch Zhang heads up for $239,652. All three of those PokerStars High Rollers victories were good enough to enter Beresford’s top-5 career results. The highlights continued in April as Beresford walked away with the win in the GGPoker GSS #162-HR for $74,066. Then again in May when he picked up a PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker title with a win in Event 32-H ($530 NLHE) for $85,959. It was only fitting that in the middle of his 29-week long run as the #1-ranked player in the world, Beresford took down his first PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker title for $162,674. By the end of the year, Beresford’s lifetime career cashes soared over $14.7 million in earnings and he accumulated 29,804 PLB points, more than 4,000 ahead of Brazil’s Brunno ‘bbotteon’ Botteon who ended the year with 25,730 points. Botteon had a well-documented incredible year in his own right highlighted by a second-place finish in the international leg of the World Series of Poker 2020 Main Event for a career-high score of $1,062,723. He also finished as the runner-up in the WSOP $25,000 Heads Up NLHE event on GGPoker for $622,300 as well as making an appearance at the final table of the WSOP $25,000 NLHE Poker Players Championship where he finished in sixth place for another $388,837. In total, Botteon, who is currently the #1-ranked player in the world, earned 14 of his top 15 scores in 2020, seven of which were good for six-figures or more. The current #2-ranked player, Ivan ‘zufo16’ Zufic also made a run at the Online Player of the Year title by accumulating 23,773 points. The largest score of his year came in August when he earned a WSOP gold bracelet in Event #63 ($500 Mini Main Event) and collected a career-high cash of $843,460. After winning the PocketFives Yearly PLB title in both 2018* and 2019, ‘Lena900’ finished fourth in the 2020 race with 22,918 points. ‘Lena900’ started the year off as the #1-ranked player and held on to it for the better part of five months until Beresford assumed the top spot. Despite everything he’s accomplished in his career, all of his titles, the online great managed to add even more last year. His yearly highlights included a win in the PokerStars Stadium Series for $230,435 which was the third-highest cash of his career plus two WCOOP titles. In total, ‘Lena900’ has extended his lead on the Online All-Time Money List to more than $21.5 million. Former #1-ranked Yuri ‘Yuri Martins’ Dzivielevski finished in fifth place with 20,411 points on the back of his second career WSOP bracelet and three World Championship of Online Poker titles which included one in Event #48-H ($5,200, 8-Max PKO) for a total of $245,000. 2020 Online Poker Player of the Year Standings [table id=150 /] * In previous years, players were awarded the title of PocketFives Yearly PLB winner. This title has been changed to PocketFives Online Player of the Year.
  3. In the same month that Brazil’s Brunno ‘bbotteon’ Botteon captured the worldwide #1 ranking for the first time in his career, he leveraged his first seven-figure score to take home the title of PocketFives Player of the Month for December. Botteon’s outstanding performance in 2020 has been well documented. Continually reaching new career-high cashes throughout the year, Botteon made a name for himself with high-profile appearances in the WSOP Online $25K Poker Players Championship as well as earning a spot in the finals of the WSOP Online $25K Heads-Up Championship. However, in December he was able to, once again, find a way to reach new heights. Botteon’s runner-up finish in the international leg of the $10K WSOP Main Event earned him $1,062,723, his first million-dollar score. It was also the fifth time in 2020 that he earned himself a new career-high cash. But it wasn’t just his deep run in the WSOP Main Event that helped him lock up the Player of the Month. Early in the month, he took down the December 6 edition of the PokerStars High Roller Club ($1,050 Sunday Cooldown) for $10,478 and 232.78 PLB points. The very next day he won the GGPoker Sunday Forty Stack for another $35,985 and 451.43 PLB points. He picked up yet another win in the GGPoker $1,050 High Rollers Main Event for $25,645 and another 342.05 PLB points. In total for December, Botteon picked up nine five-figure scores from his 37 total results (outside of his WSOP cash). He also had nine PLB scores for a total of 5,308 points, just enough to help him outpace the competition to win the monthly award for the second time in his career. It was a perfect finish to an incredible year in which Botteon was named one of poker’s brightest rising stars. It seems like for the past month, whatever Botteon has done Croatia's Ivan ‘zufo16’ Zufic has been right behind him, chasing him down. The #2-ranked player in the world finished as the runner-up in December’s Player of the Month race with 5,237 PLB points, just 71 behind Botteon. Zufic may not have had an avalanche of PLB points like one gets for taking second in the WSOP Main Event, but he did have a massive score of his own. His runner-up finish in the December 13 GGPoker High Roller Million$ brought him $228,682 and 821.52 PLB points. He added to his PLB point total with a victory in the GGPoker WSOPC Series $400 Sunday Forty Stack for $41,934 and 547.42 PLB points. In December Zufic was on a non-stop grind. He logged 131 in-the-money results, 12-PLB qualifying scores, and ten cashes of five-figures or better. He’s off to a fast start in 2021 as well, already locking up multiple large scores and keeping himself in the race for the worldwide top spot. Anton ‘AnteSvante’ Wigg, Austria’s #1-ranked pro, finished in third place in December after accumulating 4,091 PLB points. He finished in fourth place in the GGPoker Super Million$ High Rollers on December 1 for a career-high online cash of $176,631 and 587.22 PLB points. Two weeks later, Wigg defeated the 321 runners in the PokerStars High Roller Club $1,050 Sunday High Roller for $60,389 and another 566.57 PLB points. Over the final two weeks of the year, Wigg went on a run on GGPoker picking up five-figure cashes and PLB points in bunches. A runner-up finish in the WSOPC Series $1,500 Sunday High Rollers brought him $44,369 on the same day he won the Sunday Special for $31,929. The next day he earned another $22,477 in the WSOPC Event #2 ($10, 300 Super MILLION$ High Roller) and another $32,729 in WSOPC Event #3 ($3,000 Deepstack) the very next day. His late-year results have pushed Wigg into the worldwide top-10 ranked, where he currently sits at #7. December 2020 Player of the Month Results [table id=153 /]
