  1. Another major online poker series kicked off this weekend as the preliminary events in Poker Central’s first-ever Super High Roller Bowl Online series brought out some of the biggest names in the game. The complete series, which takes place on partypoker, will run from May 23 through June 1 and guarantees $20 million in total prize money across 28 High Roller tournaments. Former #1-ranked PocketFiver, Chris Hunichen took home the largest score of the three opening day events, earning $479,250 for his victory in Event #2 ($25,500 No Limit Hold’em Super High Roller ). The two-day event saw a total of 54 entries which pushed the prize pool to $1,350,000. Hunichen’s score ranks as the second-largest online cash of his career, right behind his third-place finish in the 2018 PokerStars SCOOP $10K Main Event for which he took home over $618,000. ‘Big Huni’ defeated another online superstar for the title by besting Viktor Blom in heads-up play. Blom’s runner-up finish was good for $32,625 and comes just a day after finishing third in the WPT Online series PLO High Roller for which he earned $121,200. Mark Davis fell in third place and picked up $205,875. Jans Arends outlasted the 76-entry field of Event #1 ($10,300 No Limit Hold’em High Roller) to take home the $216,600 first-place prize. Finishing right behind him was the UK’s Ben Heath who secured $148,200 as the runner-up. Picking up the bronze was two-time Global Poker Index Player of the Year Alex Foxen who added another $102,600 to his bankroll. Also of note, former worldwide #1-ranked online pro Niklas Astedt finished in sixth place for $41,800 and Daniel Dvoress secured a min-cash of $22,800, his second cash in the first two events. Another player who cashed in two of the three events was Sergi Reixach, who took down Event #3 ($10,300 No Limit Hold’em High Roller) for $191,750. Combined with his fifth-place finish in Event #1, Reixach’s two-score, one day total was just shy of $245,000. Just a week after picking up his fourth career SCOOP title, Mike Watson finished in second place, taking home $129,800 for his efforts. And another former #1-ranked PocketFiver found his way to the podium as Andras Nemeth finished up in third place for $87,025. Event #1: $10,300 High Roller 76 entries $760,000 prize pool Jans Arends - $216,600 Benjamin Heath - $148,200 Alex Foxen - $102,600 Jake Schindler - $68,400 Sergi Lloveras Reixach - $53,200 Niklas Astedt - $41,800 Juan Pardo Dominguez - $34,200 Christopher Fraser - $26,600 Event #2: $25,500 Super High Roller 8-Max 54 entries $1,350,000 prize pool Christopher Hunichen - $479.250 Viktor Blom - $320,625 Mark Davis - $205,875 Vicent Bosca Ramon - $131,625 Rob Lipkin - $87,750 Daniel Dvoress - $67,500 Timothy Adams - $57,375 Event #3: $10,300 High Roller 59 entries $590,000 prize pool Sergi Lloveras Reixach - $191,750 Michael Watson - $129,800 Andras Nemeth - $87,025 Vicent Bosca Ramon - $54,575 Juan Pardo Dominguez - $42,775 John O’ Shea - $33,925 Michael Addamo - $28,025 Jonathan VanFleet - $22,125
  2. In the illustrious history of the PocketFives Rankings, 55 different players have managed to hold down the #1 spot. This edition of the RANK & FILE focuses on how those players did during the 2018 World Championship of Online Poker. PokerStars' 2018 World Championship of Online Poker came to a conclusion this week and the two-week online festival paid out nearly $100 million to tournament grinders from all over the world. Amongst those competing for the six-figure scores and title of WCOOP champion were some of the one-time PocketFives #1-ranked players. Here we take a look back on how some of the best poker players in the world fared during the series. Shaun ‘shaundeeb’ Deeb WCOOP Titles: 2 Total Earnings: $176,533 Shaun 'shaundeeb' Deeb found the time to put his beef with William Kassouf aside and grind the WCOOP. And grind he did. Deeb seemingly played everything on the schedule and found his way into the money an astonishing 48 times for over $176,000. His 48 in-the-money results were, far and away, the most cashed by any former or current #1 ranked player. In the process, Deeb picked up two victories, both while playing Pot Limit Omaha 8 or better. His first triumph was in Event-22-H ($1,050 PLO8 Eight Max) for over $38,000. Then the four-time WSOP bracelet winner won again in Event-59-H ($2,100 PLO8 Six Max) for another $69,000. Deeb pulled off four final tables and five cashes of five-figures. While Deeb is no longer a top-100 ranked player, due to his inability to play with regularity from inside the United States, he continues to prove that he is still a top online tournament player. Deeb has accumulated over $6.7 million in lifetime online earnings. ‘Lena900’ WCOOP Titles: 1 Total Earnings: $189,871 The current #1-ranked ‘lena900’ picked himself up a WCOOP title early in the series. He booked the win during Event #27-H ($530 PLO Six Max) for $58,228. However, that was not the Swedish superstar’s largest result of the series as he had a final table finish in Event-30-H ($5,200 No Limit Hold’em High Roller) for $62,942. 'lena900's 29 cashes during the series helped put him up over $12 million in lifetime earnings, making him only one of three players to ever reach this plateau. He’s second only to Chris ‘moorman1’ Moorman, who recently passed $15 million, in terms of total lifetime earnings. Chris ‘Getting Daize’ Oliver WCOOP Titles: 1 Total Earnings: $300,007.65 Florida native, but playing out of Costa Rica, Chris ‘Getting Daize’ Oliver also picked up a WCOOP title when he defeated online giant ‘bencb789’ for the victory in Event-30-H ($5,200 No Limit Hold’em High Roller) for over $250,000. The win represents one of the single largest scores by a former PocketFiver #1 during the 2018 series. In total, Oliver registered 21 WCOOP cashes, 10 of which were for four-figures of better. This helped propel him back inside the top 25, jumping 38 spots from 59th to his current rank of 21st. girafganger7 WCOOP Titles: 1 Total Earnings: $214,368.42 UK crusher ‘girfganger’ fought his way to three final tables during WCOOP and booked a title win in Event-55-M ($530 PKO No Limit Hold’em Eight Max) for $55,846. But like ‘lena900’, his title win wasn’t the largest of the series for him as he was a final table participant in one of the biggest tournaments of the series. He took eighth place in Event-12-H ($10,300 Eight Max High Roller) for over $62,000. The #14-ranked ‘girafganger7’ earned 20 total WCOOP cashes helping him rocket past $6.5 million in lifetime earnings In addition to the four former #1-ranked players who added WCOOP Champion to their resume, a number of other players turned in big-time performance. Chris ‘Big Huni’ Hunichen Total Earnings: $305,772.26 With his fifth-place finish in Event-43-H ($25,000 No Limit Hold’em Eight Max High Roller), Chris 'Big Huni' Hunichen took home of the largest cashes of the series, $204,221.95. The #16-ranked Hunichen also nearly captured a title of his own finished as the runner-up in Event-10-H ($2,100 No Limit Hold’em Win The Button) for $61,567.36. His series helped elevated him to over $11.6 million in lifetime earnings, good for fourth-place in total career online earnings. ‘C Darwin2’ Total Earnings: $247,247.09 The man who held the #1 spot for the better part of a year, ‘C Darwin2’ did as he was expected to do - he crushed tournaments. In total, the Swede cashed in 27, made four final tables and finished 10th in Event-58-H ($5,200 Main Event) for $72,681.57. He had a runner-up finish in Event-38-H ($1,050 No Limit Hold’em PKO) for $48,164.70 and six five-figure cashes overall.
  3. One of the most prestigious high rollers of the year came to a conclusion on Saturday as Sam Greenwood defeated the 61 player field in the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure $100,000 Super High Roller for $1,775,460. Late on Friday night, the tournament saw the money bubble burst when Gregory Jensen bowed out in ninth place. The players could have opted to end the day of play right there returning for the live streamed final table with a full table. However, they continued to play to the end of the level. During that time they lost three of the eight remaining players including U.S. Poker Open champion Stephen Chidwick in eighth ($236,720), Steffen Sontheimer in seventh ($301,820) and PokerStars ambassador Igor Kurganov in sixth place ($378,760). When they returned on Saturday, the table was five-handed with Canadian Chris Hunichen with the chip lead. LISTEN: The FIVES Poker Podcast LIVE from the Bahamas with guest Chris Hunichen The first elimination of the day took place during a clash between Talal Shakerchi and Greenwood. Greenwood raised holding [poker card="qh"][poker card="qd"]. When the action made it to Shakerchi, he shoved just over 20 bigs with [poker card="js"][poker card="9c"]. Greenwood made the quick call. The [poker card="3c"][poker card="9h"][poker card="th"] flop paired Shakerchi and the [poker card="qs"], while improving Greenwood’s hand, provided Shakerchi even more outs. The [poker card="7c"] river was not one of them and Shakerchi, who made his second final table of the PCA in as many events, settled for fifth place and another $485,300. This result brings Shakerchi's total 2019 PCA earnings to $994,300. Hunichen had lost his chip lead after taking providing Greenwood a double up earlier in the day. He quickly found himself with a 10 big blind stack. Hunichen subsequently lost another hand to Greenwood and was running on fumes. His tournament came to an end when he made an all-in call holding [poker card="ah"][poker card="6d"] against Henrik Hecklen’s [poker card="ac"][poker card="jh"]. The [poker card="3s"][poker card="9c"][poker card="ks"][poker card="4d"][poker card="5c"] board never really provided much of a sweat and ‘Big Huni’ bowed out in fourth place for $627,340, a new career-high cash. Hunichen has been on a run as of late as this result comes on the heels of his third-place place finish in the WPT Five Diamond $100K, where he won his previous largest cash of $592,000. Greenwood then separated himself from both Jesus Cortes and Hecklen and at one point had a greater than 2:1 chip advantage over each of them. Not long after Hunichen's departure, Greenwood and Cortes faced off in a massive cooler that claimed Cortes’ tournament life. Greenwood opened on the button with [poker card="jc"][poker card="td"] and Cortes flatted on the big blind with [poker card="qd"][poker card="qc"]. The [poker card="9h"][poker card="qs"][poker card="ks"] action flop provided Greenwood a flopped straight and a set for Cortes. Cortes checked, Greenwood bet, Cortes flat called. The turn was the [poker card="6d"] and after Cortes checked again, Greenwood placed in a larger bet. Cortes, again, just called. The river brought the [poker card="2s"]. Cortes checked for the third time. Greenwood, covering Cortes, shipped all-in. Cortes could not get away from the hand and after seeing the results, headed for the cashier in third place. He collected $828,560 for his efforts. The score almost exactly doubles the total of his previously recorded live cashes of $828,201. With a commanding chip lead headed into heads-up, it didn’t take long for Greenwood to close out the tournament. Greenwood open limped from the small blind with [poker card="7s"][poker card="7d"] and Hecklen moved all in with [poker card="ad"][poker card="6d"]. Greenwood instantly made the call and the pair saw the flop of [poker card="8c"][poker card="8d"][poker card="3s"] leaving Hecklen with very few outs. The turn was the [poker card="4s"] providing no help. The [poker card="2d"] river sealed the deal for Greenwood, giving him the victory. This was another amazing showing for Denmark’s Hecklen, who finished in second place for a career-high cash $1,284,260. It comes on the heels of his victory in the EPT Prague €10,300 High Roller where he dominated the table from start to finish picking up $568,680. In total, Hecklen now surpasses $3M in total career live earnings. Greenwood, a PocketFiver, picked up the PCA Super High Roller trophy and takes home $1,775,460 for his performance. This is his second largest cash in his impressive career, one that now includes six seven-figure scores. Greenwood now exceeds $14.5 million for his career and climbs to 37th place on the All-Time Money List. PCA $100K Final Table Payouts 1. Sam Greenwood - $1,775,460 2. Henrik Hecklen - $1,284,260 3.

  4. There was plenty of action during the fifth full day of the PokerStars 2018 World Championship of Online Poker. Fourteen total tournaments were in action on Friday and six new WCOOP Champions were crowned. The biggest winner of the day was Canadian grinder ‘SinKarma’. They topped the 334-player field in Event #21 High ($2,100 Four Max, No Limit Hold’em) for $124,143.98, the only six-figure cash of the day. Poland’s ‘voytech75’ settled for second place, walking with a score of over $82,000. The rest of the four-handed final table was rounded out by South Korea’s ‘level1pro’ who won $55,438.92 and Austrian pro ‘Tankanza’ who added $37,047.61 to his winnings. It was mere months ago that ’Tankanza’ picked up a massive win in PokerStars $10,300 NLHE Spring Championship Of Online Poker Main Event for a seven-figure score of $1,133,160. Other notable names that went deep in this contest included Chris ‘Big Huni’ Hunichen (10th place - $15,840.95), PokerStars Ambassador Jason ‘jcarverpoker’ Sommerville (11th - $15,840.95), Shaun ‘shaundeeb’ Deeb (14th - $11,934), ‘bencb’ (17th - $8,990.67), Jon ‘apestyles’ Van Fleet (21 - $8,990.67) and Germany’s ‘nilsef’, who has already earned himself two WCOOP titles in 2018. ‘phounderAA’ defeated the 1,896 player field in Event #21 Medium ($215 Four Max, No Limit Hold’em), taking home the $56,901.32 first place prize. While ‘*M@RC0* A’ navigated through the 8,177 players who registered for Event #6 Low ($22 Four Max, No Limit Hold’em) en route to a three-way chop that gave him $18,165.57 and the title of WCOOP Champion. The other event that wrapped up on Friday was Event #24 (Three Max, Turbo, Progressive KO, Zoom, No Limit Hold’em). The UK’s ‘la_benjjjjj’ was, far and away, the overwhelming winner in the $530 High Event. He defeated the three-handed final table and took home $47,479.59 for first. On top of that, he earned another $35,05086 in bounties. His bounty haul alone was more than ‘venomrtgllwi’ earned for second place, winning $31,035.57 as the runner-up and an additional $3,080.08 in bounties. Event #24 Medium ($55 Three Max, Turbo, Progressive KO, Zoom, No Limit Hold’em) was won by Romans ’RovoDice’ Voitovs from Latvia. Voitovs earned $24,844.67 for the win and another $10,158.23 in bounties. He’s currently the #5-ranked player in Latvia and with the victory, he sits just outside of $1.5 million in lifetime recorded earnings.
