  1. [caption width="654"] The top five of the rankings this week[/caption] Swedes continue to dominate the top of the PocketFives Rankings and this week, another Swede played his way into the top 10. Debuting at #8, his highest ranking ever, 'DeathbyQuads' is the fifth player from Sweden in the top ten worldwide. The volume-driven 'DeathbyQuads' had eight cashes on Tuesday, the largest of which was worth $11,000 for finishing second in the PokerStars Big $109. In fact, he has just three cashes over $40,000 for his career despite having over $1.5 million in winnings. Two of those three cashes came late last year, a WCOOP third place finish for $49,000 and a Sunday Warm-Up third place finish for $42,000. 'DeathByQuads' moved up five spots this week and has 6,500 PLB Points. Although he's almost 1,000 points shy of first place, he's only 219 away from fifth and could easily make that leap next week. The top spot still belongs to Sweden's 'C Darwin2', who has 7,457 points and has been the #1 ranked player since February 10. He finished sixth in a PartyPoker Powerfest event over the weekend for $10,000 and is quickly approaching $4 million in career online winnings. Interestingly, his last tracked win was on February 7, but since then he has amassed almost 20 top-10 finishes. He is 600 points ahead of second place. Speaking of second place, England's Oscar 'MendaLerenda' Serradell moved up from #7 to #2, his highest position ever, after winning the PokerStars $12,000 Guaranteed on Tuesday, just one week after taking down the 888 Monsoon. He has 338 top-three finishes and is almost at $4 million in winnings for his career. Serradell finished second in a TCOOP event earlier this year for $63,000, his fifth largest score all-time. [caption width="460"] Oscar 'MendaLerenda' Serradell moved up five spots to #2[/caption] Outside of the top 10, don't look now, but Chris 'moorman1' Moorman is back in the top 20. The most successful player in online poker history, Moorman moved up 13 spots after winning the 888 Late Night Crocodile and PokerStars $109 Rebuy on March 3 for almost $15,000 total. Moorman just passed $13 million in career winnings, $4 million more than the next closest player, and has a whopping 25 PocketFives Triple Crowns, four more than anybody else. [caption width="550"] Chris 'moorman1' Moorman is back in the top 20[/caption] England's 'woody1234321' moved up 18 spots to #23 after finishing second in the PokerStars Super Tuesday last week for $74,000. He's 10 spots off his all-time high and is $34,000 away from hitting $3 million in winnings for his career. He's the top-ranked player in the English county of Norfolk. After reentering his screen names, another Brit, 'Bunkervogel', re-joined the top 100 at #65. He took second in the PokerStars Bigger $109 in January for $31,000, his second largest score to date, and has $1.1 million in career winnings. 'Bunkervogel' is the 11th-ranked player in the UK and #1 in Brighton and Hove. Latvia's 'ex6tence' re-entered the top 100 at #70. He's the top-ranked player in his home country and final tabled the PokerStars Sunday $109 Rebuy over the weekend for almost $10,000. He has over 50 in the money finishes already in March and just hit $3 million in cashes all-time. You can find him on PokerStars under the moniker 'ex6tenceLV'. Also re-entering the top 100 was former #1 ranked Mike 'telks' Telker, who can be found at #72. Telker took third in the Sunday Second Chance over the weekend to boost his career winnings north of $7.1 million, which puts him in the top 20 all-time. Telker is a longtime member of the online poker community and plays on PokerStars as 'munchenHB'. He was last ranked #1 in December 2011. Finally, Tom 'Jabracada' Hall entered the top 100 at #76, his best showing ever. From the riverside town of Shrewsbury in England, Hall has won three online MTTs this month, including the PokerStars Hot $82 for almost $10,000. Those three raised his career win total to 168. Hall, a 27-year-old, has $2.1 million in cashes lifetime. Top 10 Ranked Players: C Darwin2 - 7,457 points MendaLerenda - 6,836 points lena900 - 6,828 points eisenhower1 - 6,801 points gray31 - 6,719 points Ariados - 6,629 points SvZff - 6,589 points DeathbyQuads - 6,500 points veeea - 6,468 points jbrown8777 - 6,404 points
  2. [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
  3. [caption width="450"] Aleksandr 'NoPlanB' Mordvinov is up to #3 worldwide in the PocketFives Rankings, his best showing ever[/caption] Every week, a member of the PocketFives community sets a new personal best. Whether it's their largest score ever or a milestone win, it happens every single week. This week, Aleksandr 'NoPlanB' Mordvinov set a record of his own. He's up to #3 worldwide in the PocketFives Rankings, his best showing ever. He won two tournaments over the last week to do it: the HS Wednesday on Black Chip for $8,300 and a $109 No Limit Hold'em Six-Max Progressive Knockout on PokerStars for another $1,800. Those were the 130th and 131st wins of his online tournament career and inched him closer to $4 million in cashes. He is two months removed from winning the PocketFives Leaderboard title in May and is the top-ranked Russian in all the land. "It feels better than #6," Mordvinov said. "I still have a long way to go to #1, though." Sweden's 'C Darwin2' is once again the #1 player in the world. He has 8,108 PLB Points and owns a 670-point lead over the rest of the community. 'C Darwin2' final tabled the PokerStars Sunday Grand over the weekend and booked a $6,200 payday. The king of the rankings will now face competition from pros returning home from the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas, where they couldn't play on the major non-US sites like PokerStars and 888. Now, they'll be out in full force. Another Swede, 'DeathbyQuads', also moved up this week, seven spots to #15. He won the PokerStars Hot $215 on Tuesday for $8,700 and took down a $22 No Limit Hold'em Six-Max Hyper Turbo late last week. He's eight wins shy of 100 for his career and just passed $2 million in lifetime online tournament winnings. 'DeathbyQuads' reached an all-time high of #8 in the rankings earlier this year and could be making a run at matching or besting that mark in the near future. Portugal's Rui 'RuiNF' Ferreira advanced a dozen spots to #37. Two years ago, he was ranked #8. Now, he is making a case for another top-ten run thanks to recent wins in the PokerStars Bounty Builder, $11 Rebuy, and $109 Rebuy, the latter of which he won twice in a three-day span in mid-July. Ferreira now has 144 career victories and $4.8 million in winnings. He's the top-ranked online poker player in Portugal. [caption width="558"] Hungary's Peter 'breeth' Turmezey is up to #51[/caption] Hungary's Hungary's Peter 'breeth' Turmezey clicked up 11 spots to #51 in the world. The one-time #3 player in the rankings won the 888 Baby Whale over the weekend for $15,000, his first tracked win since May. He's the #2 player in Hungary and is just a few thousand dollars shy of passing $6 million in career scores. Moreover, he just hit $4 million on PokerStars under the user name 'twirlpro'. Rodrigo 'rodckz' Motoki, like Mordvinov, set a personal best this week. He was up 16 spots to #57 after making the final two tables of the PokerStars Sunday Million over the weekend. He also won a $109 No Limit Hold'em Six-Max Progressive Knockout on Tuesday for $2,100. Motoki is the fourth-ranked Brazilian. Sweden's Erik 'Kihlstrom' Olofsson moved up 20 places in the rankings to #72. He was the runner-up over the weekend in the PokerStars Sunday Supersonic, which earned him $23,000. That was Olofsson's 119th second place finish and raised his total number of top-three finishes over the years to 412. The highest-placing newcomer into the top 100 was Mayu 'marroca5' Roca Uribe, who entered at #85. He finished sixth in the PokerStars Sunday Grand three days ago for $11,000, his second sixth-place exit from that tournament this month. Uribe was ranked as high as #63 on PocketFives a half-decade ago and is the second-ranked online poker player in Colombia. This week's top 10: C Darwin2 - 8,108 points 1_conor_b_1 - 7,438 points NoPlanB - 7,254 points joaosimaobh - 7,163 points lena900 - 7,136 points Pot4teUS - 7,131 points veeea - 7,088 points Greenstone25 - 6,891 points JMolloy - 6,852 points joaomathias - 6,711 points
  4. [caption width="640"] Johannes 'Greenstone25' Korsar re-entered the top 10 of the PocketFives Rankings this week (image: WPT)[/caption] It's Wednesday, which can only mean one thing: Hump Day. Okay, it means two things then: Hump Day and the latest update to the PocketFives Rankings. This week's major storylines: two new entrants into the top 10 and the world's #1 player widened his lead over the competition. 'C Darwin2' #1 for the Second Straight Week Sweden's 'C Darwin2' retained the top spot in the rankings for the second straight week. This time around, he stretched his lead over the rest of the pack to 728 PLB Points. He has 8,167 points now and spent the last week tearing up the online felts. Last week, his rankings lead was less than 100. Over the weekend, 'C Darwin2' won the PokerStars Sunday Grand for a healthy $44,000 and 465 PLB Points. It was his ninth largest score all-time and came two days before a win in the PokerStars Bounty Builder for $8,000. He's up to 64 career tracked wins and just passed $4.4 million in lifetime online MTT cashes. Two Players Enter the Top 10 Jimmy 'JMolloy' Molloy was one of two players to enter the top 10 this week. He moved up from #13 to #9 after a solid Sunday in which he finished fourth in the PokerStars Super-Sized Sunday and took third in the partypoker High Roller. Those two scores were worth $24,000 combined. On Saturday, Molloy won a $109 No Limit Hold'em tournament on PokerStars and a $162 No Limit Hold'em Ultra Deep Stacks event for over $5,000 total, the 323rd and 324th wins of his career. At #9, Molloy is one spot shy of his all-time apex in the rankings set in 2014. He is the #1 ranked player in Canada. Also riding into the top 10 this week is Johannes 'Greenstone25' Korsar, who just passed $8 million in career winnings. He ticked up two spots to #10 despite not recording a cash since July 3. This is the highest Korsar has ever been ranked on PocketFives and he's one of four Swedish players to grace the top 10. Other Movers and Shakers Sweden's 'DeathbyQuads' moved up 15 places to #22 after taking third in the 888 Whale over the weekend for $11,000. The following day, he took down a $22 No Limit Hold'em Six-Max Turbo Progressive on PokerStars, his 90th career win. 'DeathbyQuads' is on the cusp of passing $2 million in lifetime online tournament winnings and plays on PokerStars and 888 under the user name 'Eijseijs'. Another player making waves this week was Argentina's 'Kleinsane', who was up 19 spots to #57, his best showing ever. He won last weekend's PokerStars Mini Sunday Supersonic for almost $10,000 under the handle 'TEENageTuRtL'. The Argentinian also had a big month of May in which he final tabled the Super Tuesday, Big $215, and a SCOOP $1,050 No Limit Hold'em event. Fellow South American 'gusma', from Brazil, reentered the top 100 at #70, 50 spots off his all-time high set last year. 'gusma' was the champion of the 888 Whale over the weekend, his 10th largest score ever, and took home $21,000 for his efforts. The day before that, he came out on top of the field in the PokerStars Saturday Scuffle for $7,400. He's the fourth-ranked player in Brazil out of over 2,300 who have PLB scores. The only other new entrant into the top 100 this week was Croatia's 'ThoNapalm', who debuted at #98, the highest he has ever been ranked on PocketFives. He only has four cashes this month, but drove deep in the Sunday Million to open the stanza and is now the #2-ranked player in Croatia. He has $1.4 million in career winnings and finished fourth in the SCOOP Super Tuesday earlier this year for $103,000. This week's top 10: C Darwin2 - 8,167 points 1_conor_b_1 - 7,440 points lena900 - 7,425 points Pot4teUS - 7,323 points joaosimaobh - 7,264 points NoPlanB - 7,203 points veeea - 7,080 points joaomathias - 6,811 points JMolloy - 6,795 points Greenstone25 - 6,763 points
  5. [caption width="640"] 'C Darwin2' continues to pile up results to improve his grasp on the #1 ranking.[/caption] It seems like there’s nothing that can shake Sweden’s ‘C Darwin2’ from his perch atop the PocketFives Rankings. For the fifth straight week, ‘C Darwin 2’ holds down the #1 spot after a week that saw him add over 450 PLB points to his total thanks to a pair of wins. Outlasting 46 other players in the partypoker $530 High Roller on November 4, ‘C Darwin2’ added $9,100 to his bankroll and 153.3 PLB points to his total. He followed that up on November 9 by taking down the PokerStars $215 Fat Thursday for $16,083 and 300.33 points. Those two wins helped increase his lead over #2-ranked Steven ‘SvZff’ van Zadelhoff to 1,156.79 points, the biggest gap between any two places in the top 25. That gap would be much bigger had van Zadelhoff not picked up two qualifying cashes of his own. On November 5, the Malta-based Dutchman picked up $8,173 and 169.63 points for his third place finish in the partypoker Middleweight. Four days later he added $3,118 and 97.18 points for finishing runner-up in a PokerStars $109 Six Max Hyper Turbo. Changes inside of the top 10 were scarce this week. For the second straight week, ‘Sheater’ and ‘veeea’ traded the #5 and #6 spots. The only player to move into the top 10 this week was former #1-ranked ‘Chris ‘Big Huni’ Hunichen. He jumped from #14 to #9 after picked up a combined 451.83 points from a win in the PokerStars $215 Fat Tuesday and a runner-up in the partypoker High Roller. There was some re-shuffling in the rest of the top 25, but the only new name this belongs to the #1-ranked player in Austria. ‘rolandbauer’ picked up four qualifying cashes this week, highlighted by winning the partypoker Super High Roller for $55,809 and 484.77 points. He also finished runner-up in the PokerStars Super Tuesday for $41,988 and 361.36 points. The #12 ranking marks a career high for ‘rolandbauer’. The only player to drop out of the Top 25 this week was Sweden's 'Ariados', who dropped from #9 all the way to #28.

  6. Every week The PocketFives Milestone Report looks at the online poker players who are achieving career-best achievement or reaching new heights in the rankings Kenny Hallaert Stays Hot It seems that Kenny Hallaert really can do no wrong these days. Less than a month after making yet another deep run in the 2017 World Series of Poker Main Event, Hallaert returned to the online poker world and immediately went to work. This past week Hallaert took down three tournaments on three different sites to claim the second PocketFives Triple Crown of his career. The first two legs of this Triple Crown came on Tuesday, Aug. 1 when he took down the $1,050 Super Tuesday on PokerStars for $63,162 and the partypoker High Roller for $11,904. Hallaert wrapped up the Triple Crown by taking down the 888poker WHale on Sunday, Aug. 6 for $44,250. Hallaert's first Triple Crown came back in April. The Belgian poker player, who doesn't consider himself a professional, is now ranked #13 in the world. Another Swede Approaching Top 5 Worldwide Right now all five of the top five spots in the PocketFives Rankings belong to Swedish players. Those five may have some company soon though as 'DeathbyQuads' continues to move upward in the rankings. This past week he went from #8 to #7 based off of three big scores that earned him a total of 586.8 points. He wasn't the only player to achieve a career-high ranking this past week. Hallaert's move from #19 to #13 is also a career best. Russia's 'papan9_p$' moved to #30 while 'funwheel' jumped from #43 to #40. Two players, Carlos Felipe Difini and 'sinkedshrimp', both moved into the top 100 for the first time in their career.
  7. [caption width="640"] 'C Darwin2' continues to do the work necessary to maintain the #1 ranking.[/caption] Events like PokerStars’ World Championship of Online Poker and partypoker’s Powerfest are designed for grinders capable of putting long hours over a concentrated amount of time. It should shock absolutely nobody that the players who inhabit the top of the PocketFives Rankings have also enjoyed success over the past couple of very busy weeks in the online poker world. Sweden’s ‘C Darwin2’, who was #1 in the world when WCOOP began three weeks ago, continues to hold onto the top spot. In the last week he’s earned over 1,380 PLB points after winning the PokerStars Sunday Grand (PLO) for $39,638 and 449.44 points and then final-tabling and finishing eighth in the Powerfest Championship Event for $39,750/35.72. He then followed those up with a pair of runner up finishes. First in Powerfest Event #248 ($530 High Roller) and then in WCOOP Event #62 High ($530 Pot Limit Omaha Hi-Lo) for $24,920/278.35 and $28,244/303.77 respectively. The biggest jump inside the top 25 this past week came from former #1-ranked Chris Hunichen. The Costa Rica resident took down WCOOP Event #40 High ($530 Six Max Five Card PLO) for $53,537 and 551.82 points. It was Hunichen’s first WCOOP victory. He also managed four other cashes, highlighted by a sixth place finish in the Powerfest Championship Event for $69,00/417.98. Swedish players continue to dominate the top of the rankings. Along with ‘C Darwin2’, there are four other Swedes in the top seven; ‘lena900’ (#2),Andreas ‘r4ndomr4gs' Berggren (#5), Robin 'inhoo' Ylitalo (#6), and ‘Sheater’ (#7). With ‘lena900’ returning to the #2 spot, that means that Russia’s ‘veeea’ dropped back down one spot to #3. Brazil’s Joao 'joaosimaobh' Simao moved up two spots to #4 while Berggren and Ylitalo each dropped one spot.

  8. At this point, it might just take a miracle or two for somebody to unseat the Swedish players from the top of the PocketFives Rankings. Yet again, Swedish players fill every single spot in the top five and have seven of the top 10. ‘C Darwin2’ maintained the #1 ranking despite putting in only a single day of play over the last week. Taking advantage of the Sunday schedule, ‘C Darwin2’ actually cashed 12 times last Sunday but none were big enough to add to his PLB points total. His lead over the rest of the field is now 358.58 points. The rest of the top five also remained unchanged. ‘Lena900’ continues to hold down the #2 spot even though he also failed to record a single qualifying cash. The players ranked #3-#5, Robin ‘inhoo’ Ylitalo, ‘Ariados’ and Andreas ‘r4ndomr4gs’ Berggren all picked up small qualifying cashes but each stayed in the same position. Conor '1_conor_b_1' Beresford did his best to crack the Swedish control of the top five. The #6-ranked player picked up $27,421 and 404.97 points for winning the $530 buy-in High Roller on partypoker on Sunday. He now sits just 53.88 points out of fifth spot. That big score also allowed Beresford to distance himself from another Swede that was hot on his tail. ‘DeathbyQuads’ stayed at #7 despite picking up two big wins on PokerStars for over 350 PLB points. Russia’s ‘veeea’ moved from #10 to #8 after picking up nearly 500 points on partypoker last Sunday alone. He now trails ‘DeathbyQuads’ by just 57.6 points. The final Swede in the top ten came it at #9. ‘Sheater’ won the 888poker Sunday Crocodile for $6,450 and 173.21 points. Andras 'probirs' Nemeth rejoined the top ten this week, moving up one spot from #11. On Sunday, Nemeth won the partypoker Super High Roller for $55,279/393.70 and finished third in the partypoker High Roller for $12,783/182.15. Falling out of the top ten this week was Brazil’s Joao ‘joaosimaobh’ Simao.

  9. It seems that knocking ‘C Darwin2’ out of the #1 spot in the PocketFives Rankings might be impossible. After taking nearly two full weeks off of online play, ‘C Darwin2’ returned to the virtual felt this week and despite not recording a single qualifying cash, can still call himself the top-ranked player in the world. Sitting right behind him - 177.54 PLB points to be exact - is fellow Swede and former #1-ranked ‘lena900’. He too got back in action this week after being in Barcelona for the PokerStars Championship event but. just like ‘C Darwin2’, didn’t record any qualifying cashes. That wasn’t the case for Robin ‘inhoo’ Ylitalo though. Ylitalo moved up from #5 to #3 after winning the PokerStars NLHE Sunday Grand and the PokerStars Omania Five Card PLO High Roller for a total of $38,848 and 569.44 points. He’s now just 208.31 points out of first. While Ylitalo moved back into the top three, the names in the top 10 remain identical to last week. Russia’s ‘veeea’ and Sweden’s Andreas 'r4ndomr4gs' Berggren dropped one spot each to #4 and #5 respectively and Nicolas 'PokerKaiser' Fierro and ‘DeathbyQuads’ swapped the #8 and #9 positions. The biggest mover in the Top 25 was Canada’s Doug 'OU_dlanger610' Lang. The top-ranked player in his country, Lang moved from #24 to #16 in the world after picking up five qualifying cashes for 898.37 points. Lang is now just 614.91 points out of the #10 spot - his previous highest ranking. The only player to drop out of the Top 25 this week was Latvian Dainis ‘ex6tence’ Budovskis. He dropped from #25 to #28. Jordan 'JWPRODIGY' Westmoreland took the #25 spot, up one spot from #26.

  10. Movers & Shakers takes a look into those PocketFives members that have made big moves in the top 100 of the online poker rankings. For the past two weeks, the top-10 rankings have been at a standstill. The players who lead the online poker world in PLB points have been consistently putting up big time scores, holding their spots at the top. However, up and down the rankings, players who would put the top-10 to the test are making moves to perhaps break into (or in some cases ‘back into’) the upper echelons of the rankings. Chris ‘moorman1’ Moorman (#16) Just about every PocketFiver is familiar with 888poker ambassador Chris ‘moorman1’ Moorman. He has earned more money from online poker tournaments than anyone in PocketFives history. The UK grinder is a former #1-ranked player and this week he’s made the largest leap of anyone in the top-25. Moorman jumps up four spots to #16 in the world on the back of a victory in the October 31 edition of ACR’s Extreme Tuesday for $24,000 and 282.82 PLB points. It was the second time in three weeks that he took down the same tournament, earning the exact same amount on October 17. At the same time, while he’s been enjoying his newly remodeled home in Las Vegas, Moorman has been grinding on WSOP.com, where he earned nearly $10K for his bronze medal finish in the $100,000 GTD Sunday back on October 15. After all of these years, the 33-year old Moorman continues to crush tournaments on a daily basis. Anatoly ‘nl_profit’ Filatov (#38) Another big name player climbing the rankings is partypoker sponsored pro Anatoly ‘nl_profit’ Filatov. The #4-ranked Russian player jumped up 13 places this week to land at a career-high ranking of #38 in the world. This is thanks in large part to a pair of big-time back-to-back victories that took place on October 28. Filatov first took down the partypoker Sunday Bounty Hunter High Roller for a massive $52,935 score and 447.21 PLB points. On the same day, he also soared to victory in the Sunday Main Event High Roller for another $20,492 and 317.02 PLB points. Although he hasn’t been putting in a large amount of volume, when he has been online he’s certainly made it count. In the month of October and thus far in November, Filatov has earned north of $92,000 in under 20 results. DeathbyQuads (#40) Sweden’s 'DeathbyQuads' (who plays under the screen name ‘Eijseijs’ on PokerStars) is right on the cusp of his 7000th cash in what continues to be a prolific career. This week, the former top-10 ranked player jumped nine spots back up to #40 in the world. The final week of October was non-stop action for the Swede as he racked up the PLB points. He took first place in the October 28 edition of the PokerStars $33 Sunday Rebuy for $8500 and 227.02 PLB points. On the same day, he finished as the runner-up in the partypoker Sunday Bounty Hunter for an additional $20,273 and 257.94 points. That was not the end of his top three finishes as he booked another two four-figure scores on October 31 for a total of over $10,600 and 320.69 PLB points. Thus far in November, ‘DeathbyQuads’ has been putting in a solid amount of volume and is in a race to eclipse $5 million in total career earnings by the end of 2018. ‘Veeea’ (#42) A former #1-ranked player in the world ‘Veeea’ jumped up 16 spots in the rankings to #42 this week. He clipped a massive score on October 28 when he nearly took down the PokerStars Sunday Million. He eventually finished in third place, bowing out to the eventual winner Paul ‘behindme93’ Jurcuta, for a hefty $71,823 payday and 537.43 PLB points. The Sunday Million score pushed ‘Veeea’ up over $8 million in lifetime earnings. ‘Veeea’ has pulled back from his online grind from the days when he was sitting atop the rankings. A three-time Triple Crown winner, ‘Veeea’ no longer regularly puts in the kind of volume that may take him back to the #1 spot, however whenever he’s in a tournament he’s a favorite to finish in the money. For the month of October, while he only recorded 15 cashes, he made over $80,000. If he decided to return to a full-time online grind, expect to see him jettison up the rankings. ‘Erik212’ (#70) Brand new PocketFiver ‘Erik212’ from Malta, signed up, entered his partypoker screen name and his past results slotted him right into the top 100 at #70. As a new member, his recent scores are tabulated and PLB points are awarded accordingly, as if he had been a community member during those tournaments. For ‘Erik212’ he picked up a number of solid results back in partypoker’s September POWERFEST series. His highlights included a victory in POWERFEST Event-13-M for $7,945 and 201.40 PLB points. He was also a final table participant in Event-51-HR PKO Championship Event for another $16,130 and 270.38. His initial ranking puts him as the #1-player in Malta with just over $400,000 in lifetime earnings.
  11. Movers & Shakers takes a look into those PocketFives members that have made big moves in the top 100 of the online poker rankings. There is a lot on the line in this week’s Movers & Shakers. For the first time in a long time, Sweden’s ‘lena900’ is faced with a serious threat to his worldwide #1 ranking. Along with a pair of tournament crushers cruising up the ranks of the top 10, some notable names have made double-digit jumps up the rankings, plus a Bulgarian pro broke into the top 100 for the first time. Roman ‘Romeopro’ Romanovsky (#2) and ‘Girafganger7’ (#3) The column is called Movers & Shakers for a reason, it’s not simply the players who have made the biggest moves inside the top 100, it’s also about those are looking to shake up the rankings. Regular readers of PocketFives will know the names of Ukranian crusher Roman ‘Romeopro’ Romanovsky and UK, by way of Belgium, superstar ‘Girafganger7’. But if you haven’t been paying close attention you have missed the major strides the pair have been making, almost in tandem, up the ranks of the top 10. Romanovsky is spending his second week in a row in the #2 position, and now he’s closer than ever to achieving his primary goal of taking over the #1 spot in the world. He trails ‘lena900’ by 357 points, putting him closer to the top spot than any player has been for months. Romanovsky put together some serious PLB points including a runner-up finish in the partypoker Sunday High Roller Bounty Hunter for $28,616 and 314.65 PLB points, followed by a victory in the PokerStars Big $215 for another $5,700 and 166.73 PLB points. This week he had already recorded a third-place finish in the 888poker $50,000 Whale for $8,850 and he’s been grinding nearly every day to hit that new career high. Right behind Romanovsky is ‘Girafganger7’ who displaced ‘C Darwin2’ for the worldwide #3 spot. ‘Giraf’ has been the #1 player in the world once, back in 2017, but in a recent interview with PocketFives, he acknowledged that returning to the top of the PocketFives Rankings was, once again, on his mind. He made major strides in getting back to the top by winning the March 3 edition of the partypoker Sunday High Roller Bounty Hunter for $42,351 and 447.21 PLB points. The very next day he had another top-three finish when he picked up the silver in the partypoker High Roller Bounty Hunter for another $10,446 and 166.99 PLB points. ‘Giraf’ still trails ‘lena900’ by roughly 1000 PLB points, which is a sizable margin, but with the amount of volume ‘Giraf’ has been putting in lately, a couple more large Sunday scores could really close the distance. DeathbyQuads (#30) 'DeathbyQuads' is Sweden's #5-ranked player and this week he’s jumped up 11 spots to break back into the worldwide top 30. It has been a good few months for ’DeathbyQuads’ as has he recently surpassed more than $5 million in lifetime earnings and he continues to add to that by picking up four four-figure cashes just last week. He saw a spike in the rankings thanks to three solid PLB scores including a final table finish in the March 3 edition of the PokerStars $215 Sunday Warm-Up for $4,774 and 138.93 PLB points. He followed that up the very next day with an outright victory in the PokerStars Hot $82 for another $3,958 and 148.74. ‘DeathbyQuads’ is a perennial presence in the top 100 and a consistent grinder that has the ability to go on a heater and soar back into top 10 contention. Diego ‘MrBittar’ Valadares Bittar (#35) Another well-known name jumping up double-digits in the rankings is Brazilian grinder Diego ‘MrBittar’ Bittar who broke back into the top 50 by moving up 17 spots. It was a momentous week for Bittar as he, also, just surpassed the $5 million lifetime earnings. On March 10 when he finished in the money in the partypoker Sunday Bounty Hunter where he picked up $1,171 for a 33rd place finish. That was the cash that put him over the top of the major milestone. In the meantime, he’s been moving in the right direction on the rankings mostly due to a major victory in the March 7 edition of the PokerStars $530 High Roller Club Bounty Builder where he picked up $19,224 and 326.73 PLB points. Bittar is nearly halfway to his career high ranking of #16 in the world and he sits less than 300 PLB points behind the next nearest Brazilian, that being one of online poker’s all-time greats Joao ‘joaosimaobh’ Simao, who currently sits at #29. Boris ‘olelemaiko’ Koley (#72) The largest leap in the rankings this week belongs to Bulgaria’s Boris ‘olelemaiko’ Koley who shot up the rankings 107 spots. The move puts him into the top 100 for the first time and landing him at a career-high ranking of #72. That kind of shift is usually indicative of a massive score and this is no different for Koley who took down the ACR OSS $1M GTD for a career-high score of $196,741 and 1,098.64 PLB points. It didn't hurt that on the same day, on the same site, he booked a runner-up finish in the $250,000 Sunday Special adding $36,000 and 354.06 PLB points to his one day total. The rise in the rankings puts his as the #2-ranked player in his home country and has sent his lifetime total scores north of $1.5 million.
  12. Russian online poker crusher and the current #8-ranked player in the world Arsenii 'josef_shvejk' Karmatckii edged out Swedish superstars ‘DeathbyQuads’ and 'C Darwin2' for the top spot on the PocketFives Monthly LeaderBoard for the month of November. For the better part of two years, Russia’s current #1 player ‘josef_shvejk’ has been grinding his way to the upper echelons of the worldwide rankings and in November, he put those skills to use in order to take down his first PLB title. ‘josef_shvejk’ accumulated five total PLB-qualifying cashes, the largest of which arrived at the end of the month when he took down the November 26 edition of the PokerStars High Roller Club $530 Bounty Builder for $14,298 and 275.68 PLB points. He also picked up another big-time PLB score by finishing as the runner up in the PokerStars $215 Sunday Warm-Up for another $17,653 and 247.03 PLB points. In total, ‘josef_shvejk’ cashed for 93 times in the month, 12 of which were good for a top-3 finish. He also racked up just over $127,000 in earnings which helped push him up over $4.4 million in total lifetime earnings. [ptable zone="Global Poker Article Ad"][ptable zgone="888poker NJ"][ptable zone="GG Poker"] It was an incredibly close PLB race in November with Sweden’s ‘DeathbyQuads’ (1,909) falling just 41 PLB points of claiming the title for himself. This year has been a good one for the Swede who recently hit a career-high worldwide ranking of #5 in the world and currently sits at #12. By all accounts, ‘DeathbyQuads’ had a very nice month. He earned over $103,000 thanks to some big-time scores in the PokerStars High Roller Club series. His largest score of the month came on November 3 with a victory in the PokerStars High Roller Sunday Warm-Up for $37,494/434.74 PLB points. In fact, the Swede was on a heater for the entire week. On the same day, he took fourth in the PokerStars High Roller Club $1,050 Sunday Supersonic for another $14,980/178.21 PLB points. He then won back-to-back tournaments on November 7, winning the PokerStars $109 Bounty Builder for $8,957/234.95 PLB points and the Hot $109 for another $5,729/174.64 PLB points. His results helped put him at just over $6 million in total career online earnings. The former #1-ranked PocketFiver ‘C Darwin2’ (1,906) finished in third in November, just 3 PLB points behind his fellow Swedish countryman. ‘C Darwin2’ is no stranger to the PocketFives PLB race. He has taken down the Monthly PocketFivles LeaderBoard eight times in his career. Even though he didn't make November his ninth, he still had a fantastic month on the virtual felt. Of his 28 cashes in the month, nine of them were for five-figures. This included a monthly high score in the November 5 edition of the PokerStars High Roller Club $1,050 Daily Warm-Up where he earned the $21,029 first-place prize. In total, ‘C Darwin2’ racked up over $181,000 in cashes and 10 podium finishes. Currently, the online legend sits in fifth place on the All-Tme Online Money List with over $14.3 million in career earnings. Fourth-place PLB finisher ‘lil lolita’s whole month comes down to one huge score. The mid-stakes grinder from Belarus picked up 1,017.25 PLB points after his November 17 victory in the PokerStars $109 Sunday Million for a career-high cash of $108,071. He defeated a field of 10,348 entries to take home the title. The victory not only made him the current #1 player in his home country of Belarus, but also took him to a career-high worldwide ranking of #138. Finishing off the top five is Tyler ‘Wonderboy222’ Goatcher from the UK. Goatcher put in some serious volume and amassed 96 cashes in November including a highlight tournament victory in the November 3 edition of the partypoker Gladiator where he won $16,364 and 273.86 PLB points.
