From February 7-10, 888poker will host another one of their famously fun live events in the heart of London. The Aspers Casino, which played host to nine 888poker events in 2018, will once again be ground zero for the thriving London live scene. The 888poker LIVE Kickoff Event is a £440 buy-in event with a £120,000 guarantee. The tournament has a nice structure for the buy-in. It starts with a 30k starting stack and 40-minute levels. Players can re-enter a maximum of three times in case things don't go according to plan. Also featured is the big blind ante and a 30-second shot clock to make sure the tournament moves along smoothly. A Look Back This event has proven to be an 888poker LIVE favorite. In 2018, players flocked to the Aspers for the event as 547 entries pushed the prize pool to over £216,000. Once the tournament played down to four-handed, and after a few hours of grinding it out, the final four opted for an ICM deal that guaranteed each of them no less than £23,000. With the most chips at the time, UK grinder Jonathan Bowers was crowned the winner and took home £30,630 for his efforts.

  2. It’s time once again to celebrate the drive of the PocketFives community and some of the major milestones accomplished by those keeping the poker dream alive. Over the past two weeks, some of the biggest names in the online poker game have picked up big-time badges and reached new heights in the rankings. So, let's take a closer look at who has made the the most of the month of March. Steven ‘SvZff’ Van Zadelhoff Eclipses $9 Million Online poker’s king of the keto diet, Steven ‘SvZff’ van Zadelhoff, continues to reap the rewards of putting in the work as he soared past the $9 million mark in total career earnings this month. During his March grind, where he’s has been posting results nearly every day, he has already posted 24 four-figure cashes out of nearly 75 total results. This includes a highlight victory in the March 10 edition of the ACR $20,000 GTD High Roller for over $9,800, the very cash that put him up over the new milestone. van Zadelhoff is Malta's #1-ranked player and a former #1-ranked player in the world. He currently sits just inside the top 50 at #49. ’SvZff’ has been an active PocketFiver for over 10 years and he’s accomplished more than most - a Triple Crown, PLB victories, a WCOOP Main Event champion - taking the title in 2017 for his career-high cash of over $1.6 million - and now he’s headed to the $10 million club. Conor ‘1_conor_b_1’ Beresford Hits $8 Million The UK’s Conor ‘1_conor_b_1’ Beresford has long been one of the UK’s very best online players and lately his kicked his career into a new gear. This week, Beresford jettisoned past the $8 million career earnings mark as well as holding down a spot in the worldwide top 10 rankings, currently sitting at #8. The score that put him over the top was a seemingly inconsequential $349 pickup in the March 24 edition of the PokerStars $215 Bounty Builder. But since that relatively minor cash, Beresford has gone on a heater. He has picked up over $60K in cashes this week alone. He has binked three five-figure scores including back to back bronze medal finishes on partypoker on March 24. The first result was in the $150K GTD Sunday High Roller Bounty Hunter for $12,128. At the same time, he was wrapping up the Turbo version of the same event for another $20,067. Beresford is the #3-ranked player in the UK, sitting right behind ‘girafganger7’ and Patrick ‘pleno1’ Leonard. Diego ‘MrBittar’ Bittar Passes $5 Million Brazilian online beast Diego ‘MrBittar’ Bittar also cruised past a massive milestone by earning his $5 million lifetime earnings badge this month. Bittar picked up a final table finish during the March 12 edition of the partypoker High Roller Bounty Hunter $100K GTD for $5,913 to help him clear the marker. In fact, he’s been running good throughout the entire month, picking up a major five-figure victory in the March 7 edition of the PokerStars High Roller Club $530 Bounty Builder for $19,224. He also finished in fourth place in the March 24 partypoker Sunday High Roller Deepstack for $15,600, his second five-figure cash in March. Bittar is currently the #5-ranked Brazilian in the world and ranked #34 in the world. Even More Join The Multi-Millionaire Club A number of PocketFivers continued to climb the Online All-Time Money List this month including Brazil’s Pedro ‘gusma’ Madiera who just passed $4 million lifetime thanks to his cash in the March 24 edition of the PokerStars High Roller Club Sunday 500 for $1,287. Right behind him, passing $3 million in his career is Lithuania’s ‘baneris’. Also from Lithuania, ‘Mikensonas’ joined ’holyguacmole’ from the Netherlands to earn over $2 million lifetime cashes this month. Finally, ‘krafty’, ‘clods’, ‘Flavius_1337’ and ‘BLaaZeKuSH’ all toppled the million dollar mark this month as well. Roman ‘Romeopro’ Romanovsky Takes Over At #1 It was a banner week for long-time crusher Roman ‘Romeopro’ Romanovsky as he, for the very first time in his celebrated career, took over the #1 spot in the worldwide rankings. Other notable moves in the top 100 include the Netherlands #1-ranked ‘Jorizz’ who made a massive jump from #47, into the top 20 for the first time, landing at #14. Additionally, Brazilian crusher ‘geraldocesar’ who, for the third week in a row, touched a new career high, reaching #16 this week.
  3. 'Matze 90451' fought their way to the PokerStars $109 Sunday Million title and added another $107,737 to their bankroll, just a month after winning the PokerStars $215 Sunday Warm-Up. The prize pool was set at $1,031,600 after the event attracted 10,316 entrants, and when the field was cut to the final three, 'SG_Sergant' departed with the bronze medal for $55.692. 'Boss BL' was then the final player to hit the rail for $77,457 following the heads-up battle, and was unable to prevent 'Matze 90451' from winning their second major PokerStars Sunday tournament in the space of just four weeks. Newly crowned world ranked #1 Roman 'Romeopro' Romanovsky continued their rich vein of form in the online streets after he won the PokerStars $2,100 Sunday High Roller for $56,549. 'bartek901' took third place from the 129 player-field for $33,497 before 'RuiNF' succumbed to the pressure from the Ukranian Romanovsky and departed with $43,523 as runner-up. 'anonymstruts' turned $530 into over $81,000 after victory in the PokerStars $530 Bounty Builder High Roller. An entrants total of 1,187 created a $593,500 prize pool and a $46,755 top prize. Brazil's 'fviana' exited in third place for $25,120 + $8,965 in bounties, which paved the way for heads-up. 'anonymstruts' then won the final bounty battle and sent 'Faiv' to the rail in second place for $34,271 + $7,287. The PokerStars $215 Sunday Warm-Up saw a $217,000 prize pool created after 1,085 players took part, and when all was said and done it was 'DonPiatniK' who claimed the glory. Czech Republic's 'LlKE A G6' went into the heads-up battle after 'DonPiatniK' after their fellow countryman 'sksjohny' had departed in third place for $18,202, but the Czech was unable to hold out and was the final player to depart, banking $25,315, as 'DonPiatniK' claimed the $35,210 first-place prize. Despite 'POWERFEST' dominating the partypoker Sunday schedule, there were still opportunities to pick up big-money wins in some of the retained regular tournaments on offer. The UK's Conor 'ADRIEN_BRODY' Beresford banked $20,390 after he came through a 196 player-field to win the partypoker $530 Sunday HR Clasico, and 'HeavenlyFather' also secured a top spot with victory in the $530 Sunday High Roller Bounty Hunter for $13,290 + $15,955 in bounties, following a heads-up match against regular online attendee 'Haddoken'. The partypoker $1,050 Sunday High Roller Terminator title worth $41,000 went to 'rafaelmoraesgm' after they got the better of Latvia's #1 'rudiqa1' heads-up. 'MOTHERSMATTERS' took away $12,576 + $4,330 in bounties as the third-place finisher, with 'rudiqa1' banking $17,631 + $10,915 in second. 'Kroat.' won the 888poker $530 $75,000 Rake or Break Whale for $15,750, following a heads-up deal with South Korea's ranked #1 'NEONTIGER'. The 'Rake or Break' feature continued in the 'Whale' for the second week running and once again saw the players $30 registration fee returned after the prize pool failed to hit the guaranteed $75,000. After 'SpitOnGraves' exited in third for $9,100, the final two agreed to a heads-up deal before 'Kroat.' went on the claim the top position. GGPoker offered up two Sunday Blade $5k events to its player's on Sunday and created combined prize pools worth $413,250. 'OtterPop' defeated 'PyramidOfSkulls' heads-up and bested a 40-player field for the $81,050 first-place prize, while 'AceKing41' and 'RuinF' made a heads-up deal worth $68,406, and $69,367 respectively in the second event of the day that attracted 47 entrants.

This week's PokerStars $215 Sunday Warm-Up title went to Russia's 'MaxHendrix' following a heads-up deal with 'morans350'. After the 675 player field had been whittled down to the final three, 'kZhh' departed with $12,335, and paved the way for the remaining two players to agree to a money-deal. When the cards were back in the air, 'morans350' saw their run end for $19,264, as 'MaxHendrix' claimed $21,157 and the honors.

  6. Friday was another big day in the 2020 PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker. Not only were there 18 titles handed out with multiple six-figure scores won but PokerStars also unveiled the extension of the 2020 SCOOP schedule to include 44 more events (132 tournaments) that will keep the series going until May 31 and increase the total guarantees to $135 million. Norwegian pro Preben ‘prebz’ Stokkan took home his first SCOOP title in Event #62-H ($5,200 NLHE 8-Max, PKO). Stokkan outlasted the 235-entry field to capture the $101,026.11 first-place prize plus another $187,921.87 in bounties. His total haul was $275,947.98, the most of any SCOOP player on Friday. The final table of the two-day event was packed with some of online poker’s top talent including Joao ‘Naza114’ Vieira who picked up yet another runner-up finish for $101,025.97 but was only able to add an additional $1,975 in bounties. ‘Pimmss’ finished in third place for $66,626.02 and $18,750 in bounties. Also of note, UK crusher and the new #1-ranked player in the world, Conor ‘1_conor_b_1’ Beresford finished in fourth place. The score was good for $50,789.66 plus an additional $32,031 in bounties which pushed his lifetime earning across the $11 million mark. Jans "Graftekkel" Arends also pulled down a six-figure score by winning Event #64-H ($2,100 NLHE) for $104,723 and his second career SCOOP title. Brazil’s ‘great dant’ finished right behind Arens and earned $79,295.09 as the runner-up. On their second entry, ‘L1VeYRdrEamS’ wrapped the tournament in third place and added $60,041.19 to their bankroll. Alexander ‘joiso’ Kostritsyn picked up $28,420 and his second 2020 SCOOP title by emerging as the winner from the 116-player field of Event #63-H ($1,050 Razz). ‘Muka82’ settled for second place and $19,720 while Joao ‘Naza114’ Vieira found himself at yet another final table, finishing in third place for $15,080. ‘Harleyy30040’ also took home a big score on Friday, banking $37,792.79 and an additional $51,105.44 in bounties for taking down Event #67-H ($1,050 PLO 6-Max PKO). He finished just ahead of ‘pokerboss24000’ who pulled in $37,792.42 and $2,312.50 in bounties as the runner-up. ‘gavz101’ claimed the bronze and a total score of $32,986.59. Other players who won a SCOOP title on Friday include ‘JManuel94’ (Event #60-L), ‘bacooo’ (Evnet #60-M), ‘Gaelito23’ (Event #62-L), ‘Kebrashmebra’ (Event #62-M), ‘Stakelis24’ (Event 64-M), ‘BigBluffByTJ’ (Event #67-L), ‘Garrin4e’ (Event #67-M), ‘jonasof87’ (Event #68-L), and ‘4bet_me’ (Event #68-M).

  7. Over the past 50 years, for many, the World Series of Poker has grown into more than just a poker series. It’s become a pilgrimage of sorts. Players from all over the world head to Las Vegas to take their shot at battling against the best, bringing home a bracelet and possibly be crowned a World Champion. With the WSOP regularly taking place in the U.S., it’s no surprise that American players, far and away, have amassed the most bracelets in WSOP history. It’s nearly 20 times that of the next nearest country. But this year is different and the tables have turned. After the month of July, the focus of the bracelet chase will be handed over to GGPoker where the rest of the world will have the edge on grabbing gold as American players continue to be shut out of the global online poker scene. On GGPoker, players from nations from around the world who wouldn’t otherwise make it to the Rio this summer will be looking to add to their own poker resume while contributing to the WSOP legacy of their country. Brazil It’s no secret Brazilians love their poker. They also love playing online. In the history of PocketFives, four Brazilian players have climbed to the #1 worldwide ranking. But when it comes to the World Series of Poker, Brazil isn’t even in the top 10 countries when it comes to taking down WSOP events. Through the end of 2019, six players have earned a bracelet including one of those former #1-ranked online players, Yuri Martins Dzivielevski. Dzivielevski grabbed his first WSOP win just last year after taking down the $2,500 Mixed Omaha/Seven Card Stud Hi/Li 8 or Better event for over $213K. Dzivielevski, partypoker ambassador Joao Simeo, WSOP bracelet winner Andre Akkari, and GGPoker ambassador Felipe Ramos are just some of Brazil's top-flight talent that make it so it wouldn’t be unthinkable for Brazil’s total bracelet count to double in 2020. Canada The truth is, it’s been hard for Canada to compete for bracelets in the U.S. Not because of a lack of talent, there’s more than enough. But because of tax ramifications. When Canadians win at the WSOP they can lose as much as 30% to the US-Canada Tax Treaty, making it hard to be profitable in tournaments. That hasn’t stopped Canada from claiming the #2 spot with 60 total bracelets. Led by Daniel Negreanu and his six wins, Canada boasts numerous multi-time bracelet winners including Greg Mueller, Mark Radoja, Kristen Bicknell and 2010 World Series of Poker Main Event champion Jonathan Duhamel, the first and only Canadian to hold that title. There’s a good chance for Canada to add to their legacy and strengthen their bracelet count in 2020. It’s well known that Negreanu, also a GGPoker ambassador, is going to charging hard for a bracelet with over $500,000 in bracelet bets on the line. Also online crushers like Bicknell, bracelet winner Mike Leah, former #1-ranked PocketFiver Sebastian ‘p0cket00’ Sikorski, and recent PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker winner Mike Watson all have full reign to win without getting punished in the wallet simply for being great. United Kingdom Some of the most colorful characters to grace the World Series of Poker stage have come from the UK. Many of which have contributed to the country’s 51 bracelets. David ‘Devilfish’ Ulliott, Luke Schwartz, Roland de Wolfe, Jake Cody, and Barny Boatman are just some of the legendary names that have posed for a WSOP winner’s photo and elevated the profile of poker in the UK. This year it will be a new crop of players who will lead the charge for England starting with the current #1 ranked online poker player in the world, Conor ‘1_conor_b_1’ Beresford. In fact, four of the top 20 online players in the world play from the UK including Patrick ‘pleno1’ Leonard and Tyler ‘Wonderboy222’ Goatcher. In the history of the UK, only seven players have earned multiple bracelets and if there’s one player who is a favorite to join that club it would be high roller savant Stephen Chidwick. Chidwick, who holds a bracelet of his own, is one of the most talented tournament players in both the live and online arena. Provided he has the time, he could even have a shot at catching Benny Glaser, who holds the UK’s record as a three-time bracelet winner. Russia Russia and France both have 22 bracelets, but when it comes to playing online Russia gets a definitive edge. It’s impossible to forget the impact that Russian players have had on the World Series of Poker from Ivan Demidov’s runner-up finish the original November Nine for over $5.8 million to Vitaly Lunkin taking down the 40th WSOP Anniversary event for his second gold bracelet. But while Russia is another talent-rich country, it takes a lot of effort to make it from Moscow to the middle of the Amazon Room. While Dennis ‘aDrENalin710’ Strebkov made the journey in 2019 and went home with a bracelet, many of the online crushers from Russia opt to grind online through the summer. It’s those players, like former #1-ranked ‘veeea’, who could break the tie with France this year and tack on to Russia’s total. That is unless Bertrand ‘ElkY’ Grospellier has anything to say about it. The truth is that for many countries, the series on GGPoker can really impact their gold bracelet standing. In China, there are four players who have won a bracelet. With GGPoker’s wide exposure to the Asian market, there’s a very good chance that that club will be adding some new members in 2020. There’s only one bracelet winner from Uruguay, Alex Komaromi, who won his at the WSOPE in 2015. Top-ranked players from Hungary, like ‘Wildace_hun’ have the chance to break a long-standing five-country tie of five bracelets. While none of these countries are going to make up much ground on the 1,1132 bracelets earned by Americans, the gold they take home this summer will be an important part of WSOP, and their countries, legacy in poker.
  8. After a couple of close calls earlier in 2020, former #1-ranked PocketFiver Patrick ‘pleno1’ Leonard has clinched the PocketFives Monthly PLB award for the month of May. With every major online poker site offering a full slate of premium high-stakes events, Leonard could be found in the lobby of nearly every major tournament, living up to his reputation as one of the game’s most dedicated grinders. Although Leonard’s monthly stat sheet is usually replete with impressive scores, this May was exceptional. The partypoker ambassador managed to book a career-high online score last month with his runner-up finish in the World Series of Poker Super Circuit Online $10M Gtd High Roller. The $25,000 buy-in event saw its prize pool swell to over $12.3 million, becoming one of the largest tournaments in online poker history. Leonard’s second-place finish earned him $1,611.342 and a massive 2,320.66 PLB points. The result jettisoned him right past the $10 million mark in lifetime earnings, up to over $11.4 million and into the top 20 on the All-Time Online Money List. His heater certainly didn’t end with his seven-figure score as Leonard also spent tons of time grinding the PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker. He picked up his first 2020 SCOOP title on May 12 in Event #53-H ($2,100 PLO8, 6-Max) banking $52,606 and 483.74 PLB points. He booked a second 2020 SCOOP win two weeks later in Event #93-H ($215+R NLHE, 8-Max, Turbo) by outlasting the 460 runners to take home the $41,809 first-place prize and another 482.54 PLB points. The exceptional month is just what Leonard needed to lock up the top spot in May. He finished fourth in the PLB chase in February and second in March. This is his first Monthly PLB victory since October 2014. It was going to take a gigantic month for Leonard to top the incredible May performance of Connor ‘blanconegro’ Drinan. Drinan, a PocketFiver since 2007, went on a heater during the PokerStars SCOOP that saw him win an unprecedented five SCOOP titles in a single series, all within two weeks. His run started on May 7 when he won Event #34-H ($530 PLO8, 8-Max) for $34,421. Two days later, he took the title in Event #40-H ($5,200 PLO, 6-Max) for another $152,011. The very next day he was victorious again in Event #45-M ($215 NLO8, 6-Max, PKO) for $28,348. That streak alone had heads turning, but Drinan wasn’t done. He conquered Event #56-H ($1,050 H.O.R.S.E) for $30,233 and finished off his historic heater with his biggest victory of the series, a win in Event #75-H ($10,300 PLO Main Event) for $322,264. His 23 PLB-qualifying cashes have the Chicago native currently sitting as the #1-ranked player in Canada. May was also a big month for the UK’s Conor ‘1_conor_b_1’ Beresford. Although he didn’t win the Monthly PLB award, as he did in April, it was the month that he became the #1-ranked online poker player in the world for the very first time. On the back of a pair of SCOOP victories, Beresford touched the top spot in the rankings for the first time on May 16 and has held the position for the past three weeks. He grabbed a SCOOP title on May 3 in Event 18-M ($215 NLHE, 8-Max, Turbo, PKO) for over $38,579. He did it again in Event #32-H ($530 NLHE) for $85,959 and a monthly-high PLB score of 732.12. He finished up May with his largest score of the month by finishing third in SCOOP Event #121-H ($1,050 NLHE, 8-Max, PKO) for over $91K. Alex ‘Dynoalot’ Difelice finished May in fourth place after racking up 1,276.54 PLB points for his third-place finish in the 2020 SCOOP Event #74-H ($10,300 Main Event) for $567,776. The deep run in the Main Event was a career-high score for Difelice who finished the month with 24 PLB-qualifying cashes, helping him to his current ranking of #62 in the world. Former #1-ranked PocketFiver, Steven ‘SvZff’ van Zadelhoff rounded out the top five for May. Zadelhoff put in a maximum grind, registering over 200 results and playing buy-ins at every level including picking up victories in the $250 buy-in and $100-buy-in Daily Special on Natural8. His spotlight score in SCOOP Event #48-H ($530 NLHE) where he had a final table finish for over $51,000. PocketFives May Monthly PLB [table id=53 /]
  9. Conor Beresford has held down the #1 spot on the PocketFives Rankings since mid-May but on Wednesday he added something to his list of accomplishments that has been missing until now: a PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker title. Beresford beat fellow Brit Luke 'Bit2Easy' Reeves heads-up to win Event #33 High ($5,200 NLHE High Roller) for a $162,674.33 score and his first WCOOP title. Beresford's previous best WCOOP finish came in 2013 when he finished fourth in a $109 WCOOP Kick-Off event. Reeves wound up earning $125,931.84 for his runner-up finish. German 'Loks82' outlasted 405 other players in Event #32 High ($1,050 NLHE PKO) and then came out on top after the final four players agreed to a deal that chopped up more than $100,000. 'Loks82' took home $26,116.91 from that deal and then added another $35,242.17 worth of bounties. Dzmitry ‘Colisea’ Urbanovich moved into a tie with Dan Kelly for the third most WCOOP titles of all time after shipping Event #34 ($2,100 8-Game). Urbanovich beat a final table that included Mike Watson, Shaun Deeb, and Noah Boeken before finishing the victory off against 'aleksandrs10' heads up. The only players with more WCOOP wins than Urbanovich and Kelly are Deeb (eight wins) and Denis 'aDreNalin710' Strebkov (nine titles). 'Wildace_hun' won his second WCOOP title in as many years by taking down Event #35 High ($2,100 Six Max NLHE Freezeout) to earn $79,781.92.
