  1. [caption width="640"] Daniel Negreanu won his first WCOOP title on Saturday (PokerStars photo)[/caption] Daniel Negreanu has seemingly done it all in his Hall of Fame career. He’s won World Series of Poker bracelets and World Poker Tour titles. But on Saturday night Negreanu added one title to his resume that had eluded him to date when he beat Viktor ‘Isildur1’ Blom for his first World Championship of Online Poker title. Negreanu outlasted the 147-player field to win the $1,050 HORSE Championship and $61,865.47. Negreanu certainly didn’t have it easy. He beat out a final table that included Blom, Mike Leah and Connor Drinan. ’PAW717’ came into the final table of Event #68, $320 Six Max Pot Limit Omaha, with the second biggest stack and eventually found himself heads-up for the title with ‘QuantumX90’ before the two players started talking chop. After coming to an agreement that left a little less than $5,000 on the table to play for. After a brief heads-up battle that saw ‘PAW717’ double-up early, the Mexico-based American emerged victorious to win the first WCOOP title of his career. Last Tuesday, while Doug Polk was busy smashing Twitch records for the biggest live-streamed poker win ever, ‘bob43155’ was quietly in the background, winning the Sunday Million Special Edition event for over $400,000. And while Negreanu was the big name winning on Saturday, ‘bob43155’ managed to do something noteworthy again. ‘bob43155’ won Event #69, $700 Six Max No Limit Hold'em (Five Stack), to become the first two-time WCOOP winner this year and add another $64,081.78 in winnings. Runner-up Erik ‘Popiedejopie’ van den Berg actually ended up walking away with a little bit more than the winner as a result of a deal the final three players made while van de Berg held the chip lead. Ludovic ‘ludovi333’ Geilich managed to book the biggest score of anybody on Saturday. Geilich took down the $21,000 Pot Limit Omaha High Roller to win $462,182.17. Fabrizio ‘SixthSenSe19’ Gonzalez narrowly missed winning his second WCOOP title of the year, finishing runner-up for $355,730.97. Not surprisingly, the final table was filled by some of the best players in the world. Jens Kyllonen finished third, Dani Stern was right behind him in fourth and Drinan, making his second final table of the day, came fifth. Dimitri 'MITS 304' Michaelides, who won a WCOOP event earlier this week, finished sixth. The second place finish all but guarantees that Gonzalez will win WCOOP Player of the Series. The Uruguayan grinder has cashed 21 times during the 2016 WCOOP, made four final tables and posted a win, a second, a third and a fourth place finish. Event #68 - $320 Six Max Pot Limit Omaha

  2. [caption width="641"] Fabrizio ‘SixthSenSe19’ Gonzalez took down the WCOOP Triple Draw Championship on Saturday(SHRPO photo)[/caption] While Triple Draw 2-7 isn’t the most popular poker variant around, the game’s $1,050 buy-in World Championship of Online Poker Championship event drew 121 entries and 23 reentries, enough to create a $144,000 prize pool and surpass its $100,000 guarantee. Several big-name players made it to Day 2, including 2016 WSOP Player of the Year Jason Mercier, multi-COOP champion Mike ‘goleafsgoeh’ Leah, and Triple COOP winner James ‘Andy McLEOD’ Obst. None would be able to hang on to make the final six, however. The final table featured players with a combined total of 19 COOP titles, nine of which belonged to poker pro Shaun Deeb, and three of which were owned by Uruguay’s Fabrizio ‘SixthSenSe19’ Gonzalez. In the end, the Uruguayan grinder defeated Bulgaria’s ‘droseff’ to secure his fourth COOP title and the $30,981 first-place prize. Event #44, a $320 No Limit Hold‘em Progressive KO Ante Up tournament, also had no trouble covering its $100,000 guarantee. A total of 871 players entered, generating a regular prize pool of $174,200, with $87,100 set aside for bounties. Expertly navigating the treacherous field was Russia’s ‘kawachi1984’, who, four years ago, gained legendary status after beating out 16,000 entrants to win the PokerStars MicroMillions II for $11,000. On Saturday, he would prove himself again, this time taking down the UK’s ‘limitless666’ to win his first WCOOP title and over $34,000 in prizes and bounties. There was once a time when Limit Hold‘em was virtually the only type of poker offered online. TwoPlusTwo’s Mason Malmuth once famously wrote that good players would enjoy such a large edge in No Limit games that the betting structure could never be sustainable. Things have changed obviously, but PokerStars hasn’t forgotten about the once popular game. Event #45, a $320 Fixed Limit Hold‘em Six-Max event, gave players a chance to show off their limit poker chops. The tournament drew just 289 entrants, however, coming up short of its $100,000 guarantee. When the dust settled, only Finland’s ‘mahmuttt88’ and ‘Admiral19793’ of Russia remained. Mahmuttt88 began with a 400,000 chip lead over his opponent and dragged a game-changing 640,000 chip pot with a flush one hour into the match. From there, the Finn kept the momentum and went on to dispatch his competitor with a flopped nut flush, giving him the title and a $19,087 payday.

  3. 888poker continued to create buzz in 2017 with online and live events a smashing success. The lobbies are always buzzing in one of the world’s largest sites. Tournaments can be found running during all hours of the day. Some players managed to pull in large sums from 888poker tournaments with PocketFivers chief among them. In the driver’s seat is ‘msksevart’ who picked up $282,936 in winnings on 888poker in 2017. The Russian ‘msksevart’ won 64 events on the site, placing him third on the overall leaderboard. The most money won by ‘msksevart’ in a tournament last year on 888poker came on April 22. ‘Msksevart’ won the $25,000 guaranteed Octopus for $5,928; a win that accounted for only two percent of their overall winnings for the year. The race for first place behind ‘msksevart’ for overall winnings was a close one. Roman ‘Romeopro' Romanovsky tagged along in second place with $264,007. Less than $2,000 behind him in third place is former PocketFives #1 Fabrizio 'SixthSenSe19' Gonzalez. Neither of those two players finished in the top-10 in cashes or wins on the site among PocketFivers. The top-10 for overall winnings is a 'who's who' of the best PocketFives has to offer. Former #1 'lena900' is in the mix as are 'Sheater' and Andreas 'r4ndomr4gs' Berggren. All players who ranked in the top-10 for total earnings on 888poker effectively hit the $200,000 mark. Leading the way by a large margin for total wins on 888poker is 'BLaaZeKuSH.' The only player to top 100 wins hit 112, with most of those victories coming in micro (under $22) tournaments. 'BLaaZeKuSH' also achieved the most cashes out of any player on 888poker with a stratospheric number of 1,610. That equals out 4.4 cashes a day and over two cashes per week for a player who is over $900,000 in career earnings and pushing toward $1 million. Finishing behind 'BLaaZeKuSH' in wins and cashes is Artem 'ArtiTAG' Ivanenko. When the calendar turned to January 1, Ivanenko booked a year with 1,528 cashes and 67 wins. All of Ivanenko's wins came in micro events and all but one cash was in a baby bird. Of the players who won the most on 888poker, none of them finished in the top-tier section of cashes or wins. There is some crossover between the two latter categories. 'Cherman9' and 'drbones666' were two of three other players to make the top-10 in both. 'Cherman9' tallied 58 wins, placing them fifth, and added 735 cashes which was good for ninth. 'drbones666' ranked fourth in wins and cashes with 58 and 969, respectively. Also in the mix is 'Vzsolt85,' who managed to grab 49 wins and 739 cashes of their own.

  4. 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. Dara O’ Kearney Earns 8th Triple Crown Longtime PocketFiver, Irish poker ambassador, and host of the popular The Chip Race podcast, Dara ‘Doke’ O’Kearney earned his eighth career PocketFives Triple Crown on May 8. The accomplishment puts him seventh all-time on career Triple Crowns. He accomplished the feat in short order in the first week of May. At first he took down the 888poker $10,000 Sunday Monsoon for $2,255 on May 6. The very next day he won Event #12-H of the partypoker POWERFEST series for $13,333. Then he completed the task with a gold medal in the PokerStars $215 Super Tuesday on May 8 for another $8,296. Three days led to three victories for O’ Kearney as he continues to rack up the accolades. Joining him in achieving Triple Crowns during the same week is Bryan ‘bparis’ Paris. Paris, who is fifth on the PocketFives all-time money list with over $10 million in lifetime earnings, earned his sixth Triple Crown on May 10. Like O’ Kearney he scored qualified victories on PokerStars, partypoker, and 888poker within a matter of four days. Hungary’s ‘flashxx’ also got in on the Triple Crown action, reaching her very first on May 11. She used victories on PokerStars, PokerStars.es, and partypoker to earn the accolade. ‘flashxx’ is currently just $6,000 shy of surpassing $300,000 in lifetime earnings. Major Money Milestones Former Worldwide #1-ranked online player Chris ‘Getting Daize’ Oliver became just the ninth player all-time to surpass $10 million in lifetime earnings. He sealed the deal with a final table appearance in Event #4-HR of partypoker’s POWERFEST that earned him over $25,000. Oliver’s storied career includes reaching the #1-ranking twice, earning a Triple Crown and becoming the 2010 Yearly PLB Champion. Now, he’s in one of the most elite clubs on PocketFives and despite everything he’s achieved, he continues the daily grind with an eye on $11 million. Andres ‘probirs’ Nemeth, the current #3-ranked player in the world, hit a major milestone of his own after passing $8 million in lifetime earnings. He flew past the mile marker with a career-high cash of over $576,000 by winning Event #14-H the $25,000 High Roller of PokerStars SCOOP series. Right behind him are a pair of longtime PocketFivers who just surpassed $7 million in lifetime earnings. Both Fabrizio ‘SixthSenSe19’ Gonzalez and Calvin ‘cal42688’ Anderson used the mammoth summer series to rack up enough earnings to push them past the $7 million. Gonzalez took second in POWERFEST Event #45-HR for $15,600 to get the job done. Anderson has been destroying the SCOOP fields highlighted by his victory in SCOOP Event #19-H for $126,659. Plenty of other big names have seen big gains recently and soared past the money markers they had been chasing. Both David ‘Bakes’ Baker, Guntis ‘lovefee’ Aleskins and partypoker ambassador Patrick ‘pleno1’ Leonard surpassed $5 million in lifetime earnings. Toronto’s Mike ‘SirWatts’ Watson, Diego ‘MrBittar’ Bittar from Brazil, Huber ‘IamSound’ Stefan from Switzerland and Russia’s ‘Flat’ (currently the #27-ranked player in the world) all joined the $4 million lifetime earnings club. ‘Romeopro’ Climbs To Career-High #2 Ranking Ten players hit career-high marks in the Worldwide Top 100 this week. Of the ten, two players soared to new heights within the top 10 including the aforementioned Guntis ‘lovefee’ Aleskins who earned the #8-ranked thanks to his performance during SCOOP Event #14-M for $240,766 and 1,181.52 PLB points. Roman ‘Romeopro’ Romanovsky had the best weekend of his career winning two SCOOP events in a single week and winning over $834,000, including a career-high cash with his runner-up finish in SCOOP Event #14-H for $442,299. His surge put him within striking distance, for the very first time, of the #1 worldwide ranking.

  5. After weeks of very little movement in the PocketFives Worldwide Rankings top 10, there has been some shifting of spots with two online grinders climbing their way into career-high rankings. At the top of the rankings remains Sweden’s 'lena900'. While he didn’t manage any PLB qualifying cashes, “lena900” continues to pad his bankroll with a pair of five-figure scores this week. His grind was highlighted by a runner-up finish in 888poker’s July 15 edition of The $50,000 Whale for $14,500. He continues his climb to $12 million in lifetime earnings, nearly surpassing the $11.25 million mark. Still trailing the #1 spot by over 1800 PLB points is fellow Swede, and former #1-ranked player, ‘C Darwin2’. He did pick up some valuable points this week when he finished in second place in PokerStars’ June 15 edition of the Hotter $215 for $10,689 and 187.77 PLB points. There’s a new #3-ranked player this week as Russia’s 'hellohellohello' overtook Roman “Romeopro” Romanovsky, who continues to be MIA from the online tables. “hellohellohello” benefitted from the aging PLB scores of Romanovsky, as he was also unable to score any new PLB points, despite making a few appearances online. A new member of the top 5 is Canada’s 'GINS FINEST' who touches #5 for the first time in his career. Like 'hellohellohello' just above him, the Canadian’s one spot jump up is mostly due to a lack of activity from the, now, #6 ranked Andres 'probirs' Nemeth who took the entire week off. Ramiro ‘Ramiro’ Petrone had a healthy schedule this past week, picking up a second place finish in the partypoker Big Bounty Hunter on June 14 for $4,674 and 130.52 PLB points. The top ranking Argentinan is very likely to hit $4 million in lifetime earnings within the next two weeks as he is less than $14,000 shy of the milestone. Sweden’s ‘Ariados’ maintains his #8 rank despite not registering for any tournaments this week. Fabrizio ‘SixthSenSe19’ Gonzalez picks up one spot to land at #9 this week. The UK’s new #1-ranked player, Jonathan ‘proudflop’ Proudfoot is the second player in the top 10 to reach a new career high rank by coming in at #10. In total, Proudfoot made over $26,000 this week over the course of 29 cashes. Proudfoot had been steadily ascending over the course of the past few months and now is only 100 PLB points from taking another step up in the rankings.

  6. It’s yet another week atop the PocketFives Worldwide Rankings for the Swedish sensation ‘lena900’. Not only has ‘lena900’ spent the entire month of July in the #1 position on the rankings, he’s held that spot since the start of the summer. What makes his run at the top even more impressive is the fact that he’s only had three total PLB qualifying scores for the entire month. The Swede had built up such an impressive lead, thanks in part to his strong showing in the previous spring series like partypoker's POWERFEST and PokerStars’ SCOOP, that he was able to coast on some pretty light volume this month and still maintain the #1 rank. ‘lena900’s countryman ‘C Darwin2’ continues to play catch up and trails the #1 rank by over 1750 PLB points. Helping him close the gap though was a third-place finish in the July 22 edition of the PokerStars Bounty Builder High Roller for $17,131 and 223.84 PLB points. Like much of the top 10 this week, Russia’s ‘hellohellohello’ kept his same rank as last week, coming in at #3. However, he did manage to put together a pair of impressive scores this week. The first was a fourth-place finish in the PokerStars $2,100 Sunday High Roller for $18,323 and 183.64 PLB points. Later that day he made another final table, finishing in fifth place in the bwin.com Super Sunday 1K for another $9,744/156.05. There continues to be no sign of #4 ranked ’Romeopro’ on the virtual felts. This leaves an opening for the #5 ranked ‘GINS FINEST’ to make a run at overtaking him. The Canadian currently trails ‘Romeopro’ by just over 213 PLB points. He helped himself this week by logging on for the first time since July 1 and finishing as the runner-up in the July 24 edition of PokerStars Bounty Builder High Roller for $11,430 and 190.64 PLB points. A similar situation is evolving between #6 ranked Andres ‘probirs’ Nemeth and #7 ranked Ramiro ‘Ramiro’ Petrone. Nemeth has seen his PLB points slipping while on a multi-week hiatus from online poker. The #1-ranked Argentinan Petrone one the other hand has continued to grind resulting in a pair of qualifying PLB scores this week. On July 25 Petrone scores a pair of victories. The first was in the PokerStars Big $215 for $5,362/152.32 PLB points and then he took down the $109 NLHE 6-Max, Hyper-Turbo for another $3,603/134.32. Petrone is within striking distance of overtaking Nemeth, trailing him by roughly 200 PLB points. Jonathan ‘proudflop’ Proudfoot has made a new career-high ranking for the second week in a row. Jumping up two spots to #8, the UK grinder had a big week with a pair of five-figure scores. He won the partypoker Tuesday Major for $13,000 and also took down the PokerStars $530 Bounty Builder High Roller for another $10,760. In total, Proudfoot added 478.98 PLB points to his total this week. Fabrizio ‘SixthSenSe19’ Gonzalez held fast at the #9 position. His week was highlighted by a victory in the partypoker Super Sunday Smooth Deepstack for nearly $15,000 and 279.28 PLB points. Finally, wrapping up the top 10 this week is Patrick ‘pleno1’ Leonard. The #10 ranked Leonard posted a pair of monster results on July 22 including a victory in the partypoker Sunday Big Bounty Hunter for $22,999 and 387.30 PLB points. He then backed that up with a final table finish in the 1K Sunday Big Bounty Hunter for another $13,890/194.66. In other top 25 notable moves: Austria’s #1-ranked player ’Dattebayo’ rejoins the top 25, checking in at #21. When someone enters, someone must leave and this week it was Russia’s ‘NoPlanB’, slipping from #25 to #27.

  7. There is major movement in the PocketFives Worldwide Top 10 this week as a pair of players that have been steadily rising the ranks have broken new ground resulting in a new look top 5. It seems that the stagnant summer has come to a close with some new challengers gearing up to make a run at #1. But in order to take the crown, they have to get by the Swedish sensation that is ‘lena900’. Even though ‘lena900’ spends another week in the #1-ranking, he has also encountered the problem of not picking up any PLB points. In fact, It’s been over three weeks since he’s accumulated any PLB points causing him to steadily losing ground in that regard. What used to be a 2000 point lead over his countryman, and former #1-ranked player, ‘C Darwin2’ has dwindled to about 1000. That’s still a healthy lead, but it’s one that when the major fall online series fire up (WCOOP, POWERFEST), a lead like that can be eclipsed in short order. ’C Darwin2’, who is ranked #2 again this week, is also in a bit of a PLB point drought not picking up any himself this week either. PLB points haven’t been a problem for Matt ‘GINS FINEST’ Stone who, for the third week in a row, rises in the top 10 to a new career-high ranking. Stone is now in a position to make a run at the Swedish domination of the top two spots. Stone picked up a nice score when he finished as the runner-up in the August 5 edition of the PokerStars Sunday 500 for $22,989 and 270.02 PLB points. That, combined with his third-place finish in the PokerStars Omania High Roller for $8,729 and 136.86 PLB points, allowed Stone to cash for over $33,000 in the week. Even though Stone has been making huge leaps in the rankings all summer, he’s going to need some serious results if he wants to break into the next level. He currently sits roughly 1000 points behind ‘C Darwin2’ and that means almost 2000 behind ‘lena900’. With ‘GINS FINEST’ rising that means that ‘hellohellohello’ had to take a step backward, as he slips to the #4 spot. Even though it was light volume, the Russian did spend some time online and was able to pick up over $12,000 and 178.14 PLB points for his final table finish in the August 5 edition of PokerStars’ Sunday 500. Some aging results took their toll on ‘hellohellohello’s total PLB score as he dropped nearly 400 points from last week, even with his score. He still sits just above 9000 points and trails ‘GINS FINEST’ by 374 points. The top 5 also welcomes Jonathan ‘proudflop’ Proudfoot for the first time. Proudfoot, currently the UK’s #1-ranked player, rises two spots to a career-high ranking. He recorded a silver medal in the Thursday Major on partypoker for $5,453 and 131.62 PLB points. As an additional accolade, Proudfoot managed to capture the July PLB monthly leaderboard. Ramiro ‘Ramiro’ Petrone maintained his #6-ranking, despite not logging on to the online tables this week. Joining Petrone in keeping the lowest of profiles online is #7-ranked Fabrizio ‘SixthSenSe19’ Gonzalez and Andres ‘probirs’ Nemeth, who remains in the #8 spot for another week. The top 10 welcomes back Johannes ‘Greenstone25’ Korsar, who leaps five spots to land at #9. Korsar, yet another player from Sweden in the top 10, had a mammoth week on the online felts. Since August 2 he has amassed over $56,000 in cashes. This includes a final table finish in the PokerStars $2,100 Sunday High Roller for $19,970 and 191.72 PLB points. He also picked up back to back victories on PokerStars. The first in the August 6 edition of the Big $109 for $6,030 and 179.16 PLB points. The very next day he won the Daily 500 for another $14,357. In total, Korsar picked up over 1000 PLB points since August 2 and is now in striking distance of his career high ranking of #6, which he last held in 2016. The inactivity finally caught up to Roman ‘Romeopro’ Romanovsky as he slips five spots to #10 and in all likelihood, fall back outside of the top 10 next week. He hasn’t been seen at the online tournament tables since May 28.

  8. Both PokerStars and partypoker announced their schedules for their massive fall online poker series this week, which means it’s time for the elite online players in the world to get back to the business of grinding. Once again this week, the PocketFives Worldwide Top 10 Rankings looks very similar to the way it has shaped up for the previous month. There have, however, been some minor shifts in position as players attempt to put themselves in good positions prior to WCOOP and POWERFEST. The top spot in the rankings remains the same as ‘lena900’ enjoys yet another week as the world’s #1. If there’s one player who is expected to anticipate the large guarantees of the fall online series it would be ‘lena900’. After all, it was his superior performances in the massive spring series that helped propel him above the current #2-ranked ‘C Darwin2’. For both of these Swedish superstars, this summer has been a quiet one. Both have spent quite a bit of time away from the online scene. For ‘lena900’ it’s the second week in a row that he’s been unable to capture any PLB qualifying scores, watching his PLB total dip below 12,000 for the first time in over a month. ‘C Darwin2’ on the other hand picked up a little ground by taking home over $21,000 and 279.43 PLB points for his runner-up finish in the July 29 edition of the partypoker Sunday Big Bounty Hunter. A player who is likely eager to pick up some ground this fall is Russia’s ‘hellohellohello’. This week he remains in the #3 spot, over 1000 PLB points from reaching the Swedish duo. Although he was unable to pick up any PLB points this week, he did just recently hit a new career milestone of over $7 million in lifetime earnings. Canada’s ’GINS FINEST’ has finally surpassed Roman ‘Romeopro’ Romanovsky to touch the #4 rank for the first time in his career. He was assisted by a final table finish in the July 29 edition of PokerStars Omania High Roller where he picked up over $6,000 and 109.69 PLB points. The Montreal resident continues to climb the ranks of the top 10 and is currently only 214 PLB points away from making a run at the top 3. Romanovsky slips to the #5 ranking, still keeping his distance from playing online. Putting in his grind though is Ramiro ‘Ramiro’ Petrone who jumps up one spot to #6 this week. Petrone booked over $26,000 in cashes this week, highlighted by a victory in the PokerStars Hot $109 for $6,532 and 187.62 PLB points. In total, he earned 439.44 in qualified PLB points. Another player who has not let off the gas is the UK’s #1-ranked player, Jonathan ‘proudflop’ Proutfoot, who checks in at a career-high ranking of #7 this week. He helped himself hit new heights with a fantastic score of $27,938 and 382.75 PLB points in the July 29 edition of the PokerStars Sunday 500. Proudfoot is knocking on the door of over $2.5 million in lifetime cashes, sitting under $60,000 away from the milestone. It’s likely, with his skill and volume, he’ll reach that mark by the end of the fall series. Andres ‘probirs’ Nemeth slips two spots to #8 on no volume while both Fabrizio ‘SixthSenSe19’ Gonzalez and Patrick ‘pleno1’ Leonard keep their same rankings from last week, #9 and #10 respectively. Other Top 25 Notes: While there was some shuffling in the top 25, there were no new additions. The biggest move of the week belongs to Austria's 'Dattebayo' who jumped up eight spots to land at #13. He picked up a pair of five-figure scores on July 29, including a victory in the partypoker Super Sunday High Roller for $40,828 and 380.79 PLB points.

  9. It’s another week at the top of the PocketFives Rankings for Swedish crusher ‘lena900’. The online poker superstar has had the luxury of sitting on a wide PLB point lead for weeks, however, it seems that may be coming to an end. It was yet another week without a substantial PLB score for the Swede and, with some aging results, his total PLB score plummeted over 800 points. This puts him under the 11,000 mark for the first time all summer and well within reach for the #2-ranked ‘C Darwin2’. Despite not picking up PLB points, ‘lena900’ still had a nice week at the online tables booking scores that totaled more than $35,000. This included a victory in the bwin.com $40K Bounty Hunter for $12,651. ‘lena900’s fellow Swede ‘C Darwin2’ one again sits in the #2 spot and now only trails the top spot by roughly 351 PLB points. For ‘C Darwin2’ it wasn’t a matter of climbing the ladder as much as simply holding his position. He did manage a final table finish in the partypoker Sunday Super High Roller to pick up $14,850 however, like his countryman, there were no PLB points earned for the former #1 this week. That cannot be said for Russia’s ‘hellohellohello’ who reclaimed the #3 spot this week. He rose one spot on the back of a victory in the August 16 edition of the PokerStars $1,050 Thursday Thrill where he picked up $27,270 and 378.15 PLB points. In total this week, ‘hellohellohello’ only recorded three cashes, having taken nearly a week off. He currently sits a full 1000 PLB points behind the #2 spot, yet that can all change in an instant one the World Championship Of Online Poker and POWERFEST kick off in early September. Matt ‘GINS FINEST’ Stone takes a small step backward from his career-high ranking of #3 and lands at #4 this week. After putting together a big week last week, it looks as though Stone opted to enjoy a week of summer, staying away from the online grind altogether. Perhaps Stone reached out to a few of his fellow top grinders to pitch the idea of a vacation as he wasn’t the only top-tier pro to go dark this week. Jonathan ‘proudflop’ Proudfoot (#5) and Ramiro ‘Ramiro’ Petrone (#6) both held their respective spots in the top 10 despite continued time away from the tables. It was quite the opposite for Andres ‘probirs’ Nemeth who made his return to the online tournament scene this week. Prior to this week, the last time Nemeth had recorded a score was July 8. His hiatus ended on August 12, as he hopped online and got back in the game. Nemeth played a couple tournaments and picked up some valuable PLB points, 258.54 in total, which helped him climb one spot to #7 this week. He made the final table in two tournaments earning four-figure scores in both. This included a seventh-place finish in the partypoker Sunday Super High Roller for $7,838. Roman ‘Romeopro’ Romanovsky actually rises two spots in the rankings despite still being absent from the online scene. It’s a mix of inactivity and aging scores that lands him at #8. Maintaining his #9 spot is Swedish online legend Johannes ‘Greenstone25’ Korsar. While he wasn’t able to bring in any PLB points this week, Korsar still sits within striking distance of his all-time best ranking of #6, which he touched back in 2016. Korsar is currently approximately 348 PLB points behind the #6 spot as of this week. Finally, wrapping up the top 10 this week is Fabrizio ‘SixthSenSe19’ Gonzalez, who slips three spots joining the pros who opted to take the week off.

  10. He's in the worldwide top-10 and for the month of July, Jonathan 'proudflop' Proudfoot is the king of the PLB points mountain. The Brit was the only player to top the 3,000 point mark on his way to claiming the title. Following Proudfoot is the usual group of Swedish and Russian characters with a few surprises thrown in. Proudfoot gained control of the PLB title thanks to a few major wins. Sundays were kind to Proudfoot on partypoker and PokerStars. On July 29, Proudfoot effectively closed out his month by winning the PokerStars Sunday 500 for $27,938 accompanied by 382.75 points. That point total accounts for the largest percentage of Proudfoot's monthly total of 3,216.30. Proudfoot had his say in June, as well, and improved from sixth in PLB to July's top spot. In second place by almost 500 points on the back of Proudfoot is Denmark's Jonas 'Palsgaard1' Christensen. The #1 ranked Danish player and 35th overall worldwide did the majority of his damage in one event. Christensen took second place in the July 8 Sunday Million and earned 714.24 PLB points along with a career-high online score of $111,045. Right behind Christensen is Russian rankings regular 'papan9_p$.' They finished July with another productive month that included eight wins with a triumph across PokerStars, partypoker, and 888poker. The last Sunday of July was the cherry on their month. A win in the partypoker Super Sunday 6-Max Bounty Hunter High Roller came with $23,204 in nuts and 302.03 worth of sprinkles. The group of Swedes are in the fourth and seventh positions. 'lena900' stands just off the podium and is joined by June PLB winner 'C Darwin2' three spots behind. Sweden remains the king of the jungle as 'lena900' leads the Worldwide Rankings with 'C Darwin2' in second. 'lena900' captured four wins with the best of the bunch coming on July 1. The PokerStars Hotter $109 ended with 'lena900' holding the trophy and $14,245 grand prize. The crowning July triumph for 'C Darwin2' was a silver medal in partypoker's Sunday Big Bounty Hunter High Roller. 'C Darwin2' notched 279.42 points for the result. Second on the Ukraine charts and fifth in PLB is 'Palyaaa.' They put together another top-10 month after taking third in the June PLB rankings. As a result of the strong consecutive campaigns, 'Palyaaa' is up to a career-best Worldwide Ranking of 17th. Current Worldwide top-10 member and former #1 Fabrizio 'SixthSenSe19' Gonzalez lodges in the sixth position. Gonzalez spent all of July recording results on partypoker and 888poker which resulted in six wins. Two more Russians reside in the top-10 to close out the bottom of the third of the July PLB rankings. 'kot_spartac' is in the eighth spot and Worldwide #3 'hellohellohello' dwells in 10th. 'kot_spartac' emerged with three wins in July in only two full weeks of action after ostensibly taking some time off to play live poker. 'hellohellohello' became the 37th player in PocketFives history to cross the $7 million mark in career tournament earnings. Their largest score of the monthly session was on PokerStars. The $2,100 Sunday High Roller winner's circle came lined with 316.23 points and $38,215. Doug 'OU_dlanger610' Lang is in the nine-hole. Lang put in a metric ton of volume in July and came away with five gold medal to show for his efforts. Officially around the corner on the second half of the year, Lang is ranked 50th in the world and fourth in his native Canada. A month after David 'bewater' Goodman hit the top-10 in June's PLB, fellow American Daniel 'centrfieldr' Lupo almost duplicated the feat. New Jersey's Lupo finished 16th in the July PLB rankings, only 145 points outside of 10th.

  11. Online poker is a global game with players logging on and grinding from every part of the world. Every country has a #1-ranked player and here we take a look at some of those that lead the way in their home countries. ‘dartazzzz’ - Lithuania Lithuania may not one of online poker’s powerhouse countries, but its #1-ranked player ‘dartazzzz’ certainly has proven himself to be elite. He is the #23 ranked player in the world and has accumulated over $3.7 million in lifetime earnings. This fall was a big one for ’dartazzzz’ as he set a new career-high cash during PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker. The Lithuanian bested the 1577 player field in Event-61-H ($1,050 NLHE Eight Max Progressive KO) for $120,281 and 887.98 PLB points. He accumulated 10 qualifying PLB cashes since the beginning of September and appeared at the final table in seven out of the ten. He also has 25 scores of four-figures or better in that same period of time. Jonas ‘Palsgaard1’ Palsgard Christensen - Denmark Currently occupying the top spot in the country of Denmark is Jonas ‘Palsgaard1’ Palsgard Christensen, the number-35 ranked player in the world. Christensen is a true grinder. In September he was seemingly playing every tournament he could and posting multiple results just about every day. In total, for the month, he registered 16 PLB qualifying cashes including a third place finish in partypoker’s POWERFEST-96-HR for $47,218.95. Christensen cashed in over 150 tournaments in September for a total earnings of just over $196,000. He currently has roughly $1.9 million in online tournament earnings and is just off his career-high ranking of #27 which he achieved this year. Fabrizio ‘SixthSenSe19’ Gonzalez - Uruguay Uruguay’s #1 player, Fabrizio ‘SixthSenSe19’ Gonzalez, is also regarded as one of online poker’s best players. The former #1-ranked player in the world, not only crushes online but has been showing up more often in live high roller events. He recently was seen at the final table of the partypoker MILLIONS UK 25,500 High Roller where he finished as the runner up to Steve O’ Dwyer for a career-high live cash of $377,521. Gonzalez' online prowess is well known. He has earned over $7.5 million in online tournament earnings, won a PLB leaderboard award and is a three-time #1 ranked player. Gonzalez may sliding on the online rankings due to his pursuit of playing in live events, but that hasn’t stopped him from from logging on and posting resulted whenever possible. While no longer of PLB consideration, Gonzalez career-high cash was a monster. Just two years ago he finished as the runner up in the massive WCOOP-70: $21,000 PLO Six Max High Roller for $355,730. ‘GreenNaugahyde’ - Poland The #1-ranked player in Poland is a relatively new PocketFiver having joined up in July of 2018. Primarily a partypoker player, ‘GreenNaugahyde’ spent much of the month of September grinding POWERFEST and posting some impressive results. He made it to the podium in two major POWERFEST events including Event-77-H Mix Max where he took third place for $20,141. He followed that result up the very next day with another bronze finish in Event-89-H for another $8,169. In September ‘GreenNaughahyde’ earned over $111,000 over the course of 84 cashes. Of his 84 cashes, twenty went for four-figures or higher. With over $813,000 in total lifetime earnings, he’s looking to earn his $1 million badge right around the end of 2018. ‘jounas14’ - Spain When a player is playing on a network that does not get to co-exist with the rest of the world, it can be hard to scale the rankings. Spain’s current #1-ranked player ‘jounas14’ has been grinding for years on PokerStars.es, but that hasn’t stopped him from registering on the rankings. Currently ranked #300 in the world (having reached as high as #200), ‘jounas14’ is a low-mid stakes grinder who puts in a healthy amount in of volume. He recently took down the September 20 edition of PokerStars.es The Hot €100 Turbo for $2,436 and 108.05 PLB points. He followed that up with four more four figure-score to date. His successful September has him earning a total of over $21,000.
  12. The 2019 World Series of Poker is quickly coming to a close but that isn’t stopping plenty of players from heading back to the Rio for one last shot at gold plated glory. In addition to the spectacle of the Main Event final table, the WSOP has some of their biggest stars battling in the final events of the schedule including a super-sized field in the WSOP’s final online bracelet event of the summer, won by one of online poker’s best. Summer Saved: Taylor ‘Galactar’ Paur Wins $500 Online Event Former PocketFives #1-ranked online player Taylor ‘taypaur’ Paur earned his second career World Series of Poker gold bracelet after winning Event #88 ($500 ONLINE NLHE Summer Saver) for $149,240.52. With the win, Paur continues to prove that he’s a prolific poker player in both the online and live arenas. He first hit the #1-ranking back in 2010 and then did it again in 2011 en route to a career online earnings mark of over $5M. Back in 2013, Paur picked up the first of his two bracelets by taking down a $1,000 No Limit Hold’em event for over $340,000. Even though his Sunday victory was an online event, it will be added to his career WSOP scores, pushing his live career earnings up over $4.8M. The victory marks Paur’s fifth WSOP cash of the summer, which included a 627th place finish in the Main Event for over $22,000. The final online event of the summer proved to be popular and followed suit with the live post-lims, drawing a massive field of 1,325 players looking to wrap up their summer with a win.
