  1. For the past few weeks, Sami Kelopuro has been taking it easy; spending time with his girlfriend, house training his new Italian Greyhound puppy, and generally just getting some much needed - and much deserved - rest. To the victor go the spoils, as they say. In April, Kelopuro won a pair of PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker titles and took down four GGPoker Spring Festival events. He cashed 120 times and his total earnings for the month were $4,446,237. That type of success helped the Finnish poker pro capture PocketFives Player of the Month for April. His mouse has been do
  2. “…And to me, this is white magic. Apex predator sh*t. King Kong sh*t. What do you have to say?” When Phil Hellmuth ranted about that “King Kong sh*t” during his High Stakes Duel match against Daniel Negreanu everyone who was watching instinctively knew what he meant. It was about pumping himself up, pounding his chest, and proving to himself that he can do what needs to be done in order to win, no matter the situation. Sweden’s Mathias Joelsson understands exactly what Hellmuth is talking about and, as the winner of the first-ever GGPoker Spring Festival Main Event, he’s got $1.25 millio
  3. The 330-event, $150 million guaranteed GGPoker Spring Festival wrapped up earlier this week and while there were 13 overlays, total prize pools soared past $175 million and five different players each walked away with a million-dollar score. Not surprisingly, the High buy-in category made up the bulk of the prize money. The 110 High buy-in events had $115,051,800 in prize money, for an average prize pool just north of $1 million each. Those events had a total of 44,677 entrants. The Medium buy-in events drew 157,691 total entrants and had prize pools totaling $44,558,725. Unsurprisingly, th
  4. The first ever GGPoker Spring Festival wrapped up on Tuesday night with Markus Leikkonen grabbing the final High level title and a mid six-figure payday by beating a final table populated by some of the best online poker players, including the current #1-ranked player in the world. After working his way through 338 other players in Event #108-H ($10,300 Super MILLION$), Leikkonen entered the final table with the third shortest stack behind the likes of Timothy Adams, former #1-ranked Christian Jeppsson, Daniel Dvoress, and current #1-ranked Yuri Dzivielevski. Leikkonen didn't let his start
  5. As the GGPoker Spring Festival winds to a close, just a few final events are on the schedule and Monday's action featured just one High level champion being crowned while a Medium level event paid the winner a handsome six-figure sum. Seth Davies topped the 172-entry field in Event #109-H ($25,500 Sunday Millions) to win $956,439.98 and in the process denied Sami Kelopuro a fifth GGSF title. Kelopuro had to settle for taking second place and a $717,228.48 payday. Third place finisher Elio Fox took home $537,845.52. Dutch pro Kevin Paque navigated his way through a 1,069-entry field t
  6. 'KingKongJoel' was in apex predator mode on Sunday as they worked their way through the 1,117 Day 2 survivors in the GG Spring Festival High Main Event to walk away with more than $1.25 million. The $1,500 buy-in Main Event had a total of 6,803 total entries to fall $305,725 short of the $10,000,000 guarantee. 'KingKongJoel' earned the victory after chopping heads-up with Zhuang Ruan. For finishing as runner-up, Ruan earned $952,194.60. Taking the final spot on the podium earned 'Lucky-Lucky' a $670.295.68 score. All nine players at the final table earned a six-figure score, including S
  7. Isaac Haxton must have seen all of the top players winning GGPoker Spring Festival events and decided to finally throw his hat into the ring. After posting one runner-up finish and three third place finishes, Haxton broke through into the winner's circle to take home nearly a quarter of a million dollars. Haxton topped the 83-entry field in Event #101-H ($10,300 PLO-NL High Roller) to add $230,885.58 to his bankroll. Finland's Eelis Parssinen finished in second place and won $166,934.84 while Ami Barer banked $120,697.23 for his third place finish. Haxton's closest previous call came
  8. Three of the most respected high roller regulars each walked away with more than $400,000 in earnings on Thursday in the GGPoker Spring Festival action after they agreed to chopping up the biggest buy-in event on the schedule. Stephen Chidwick, Daniel Dvoress, and Nick Petrangelo made their way through 93 other entries in Event #93 ($25,500 Super High Roller) before chopping up more than $1.3 million. Chidwick wound up with the title and $442,339.13 while Dvoress took second for $435,831.89, and Petrangelo grabbed third place for $433,757.56. Artur Martirosian banked $326,273.34 for winn
  9. Francisco Benitez was one of three players to win a GGPoker Spring Festival High buy-in level event on Wednesday and the only one of the three to get close to winning six figures. Benitez stood tall over a 259-entry field in Event #88 ($2,100 Bounty) and collected a $98,487.97 payday. The last player Benitez eliminated, Sergei Denisov, picked up his second runner-up finish of the GGSF and earned $42,795.64. '27 cm' didn't quite measure up to being a champion on Tuesday and took third for $43,044.89. Last Tuesday, Denisov finished second to 'CrossfireX' in Event #58-H: $10,300 Thursda
  10. The final Tuesday in the GGPoker Spring Festival was a big one with seven different players walking away with High buy-in level titles and the lion's share of more than $6 million in prize pools, but nobody shined brighter - and scored bigger - than Joakim Andersson. Sweden's Andersson showed no mercy as he topped the 1,089-entry field to win the GGPoker Spring Festival MILLION$ Main Event for $1,537,605.12. The $10,890,000 prize pool exceeded the $10 million guarantee and ensured that the eventual champion wasn't going to be the only newly-minted millionaire. Runner-up Julian Stuer ban
  11. For the fourth time during the GGPoker Spring Festival, Lev 'LevMeAlone' Gottlieb worked his way through a High level buy-in field to claim a title. On Sunday, Gottlieb took home more than $316,0000 to push his earnings from the four victories past the $1.4 million mark. Gottlieb defeated Chris Klodnicki heads-up to win $316,691.68 after beating the 317-entry field in Event #72 ($5,250 Bounty Hunters Main Event). Klodnicki had to settle for runner-up status and a $138,955.55 payday while 'Land on it!' finished in third place for $119,873.69. Gottlieb's three previous wins came in Event #
  12. Finnish poker superstar Sami Kelopuro added yet another notch in his belt on Saturday night, beating out a star-studded field in a GGPoker Spring Festival event to win $189,000 and his third title of the series. The former #1-ranked Kelopuro beat out 70 other entries, including fellow former #1-ranked Joao Simao heads up, to win Event #68-H ($10,300 PLO-NL Bounty High Roller) for $189,185.21. Simao banked $78,802.01 for coming in second place while another Finn, Lauri Varonen, came in third place for $74,235.30. Wei Zhao topped the 120-runner field in Event #67-H ($5,250 PLO-NL HR) t
  13. A cool and calm Friday for the GGPoker Spring Festival saw three high roller events play out to a finish with each winner claiming their maiden GGSF title. Across the three tournaments, $380,000 in prizes was up for grabs with Tomas Jozonis taking home the biggest pay out of the day. Jozonis, a former aspiring beach volleyball star, picked up his first title of the GGPoker Spring Festival. The Lithuanian grinder is no stranger to the high stakes scene with over $3 million in online cashes and just shy of a million in live earnings. The former #1-ranked Lithuanian player bested 114 other en
  14. Just three days ago, Ronny Kaiser topped a 123-entry field in Event #45-H ($2,100 PLO-NL Turbo) to win $63,721.40. Turns out, that was just an appetizer for what became a main course with a half million dollar payday. On Thursday night, Kaiser beat 87 other entries in Event #57-H ($25,500 Super High Roller) to grab the $508,447.84 first place prize. Mikita Badziakouski came in second place and earned a $391,973.06 consolation prize while Christian Rudolph found the podium yet again, this time banking $302,180.28 for finishing in third place. The second biggest first-place prize of the ni
  15. Wednesday turned out to be a relatively quiet day on the GGPoker Spring Festival schedule with just three High level buy-in events playing down to a winner and not a single one of them cracked the six-digit earnings mark. The biggest winner on the day was Dan 'Apowers1968' Colpoys who beat the 294-entry field in Event #53-H ($2,100 Bounty) to win $92,222.98. The final bounty Colpoys collected on his way to victory belonged to Chris Puetz who pocketed $57,851.80 as the runner-up. Third place went to 'judd trump'. After winning a pair of GG Spring Festival events earlier this week, they had t
  16. Niklas Astedt is having himself one helluva week. The former #1-ranked PocketFiver, who is a #1 seed in the PocketFives #1 Number One contest, has rattled off win after win over the past week, with success coming at both the PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker and GGPoker Spring Festival tables. On Tuesday, the Swedish superstar took home nearly $1.1 million for winning GGPoker Spring Festival Event #41 ($25,500 Sunday Five Million [2-Day Event]). Astedt beat out 201 other entries to pick up the win, his fourth of the series. Shawn Daniels finished second for $821,689.32 and Jaso
  17. Monday was a relatively quiet day on the GGPoker Spring Festival final tables but that didn't stop 'judd trump' from bounty hunting their way to a six-figure score while one player managed to play bridesmaid in two of the three High buy-in events. There were 159 entries in Event #43-H ($5,250 Bounty Hunters SHR) and 'judd trump' was more than happy to collect a bunch of them on their way to the win. For being the last player standing, the China-based player collected $151,617.21. 'kazanova2020', who won a bounty event earlier in the series, finished as the runner-up for $95,366.06. Coming
  18. A super Saturday in the GGPoker Spring Festival saw over $2 million awarded in prizes across six High lebel events. There were three players and two PocketFivers who picked up their maiden GGSF titles whilst Lev Gottlieb captured his third first place finish of the series. It was only two days ago that Pocket Five Senior Writer Jeff Walsh pointed out the rarity of a player winning three titles in the same series like SCOOP 2021 star Dejan Kaladurdevic. Well proverbial lightening has stricken twice as this feat has quickly been emulated over at GG Poker in its spring flagship tournament ser
  19. This is starting to get ridiculous. For the third consecutive day, former #1-ranked Niklas Astedt navigated his way to a win in a GGPoker Spring Festival event. Those three wins have earned the Swedish superstar a combined $279,247.37. This time around Astedt outlasted 104 other entries in Event #25-H ($5,250 PLO-NL Bounty) to win $140,464.75. His win came at the expense of runner-up Dario Sammartino, who would have completed a two-win day of his own had he not run into the buzzsaw that is Astedt. Sammartino banked $48,929.06 for his performance and coming in third place gave 'yfii-bestcryp
  20. Anybody who has closely followed the PocketFives Rankings over the past few years knows all about Niklas Astedt and just how dominant he can be. He's spent 97 total weeks as the #1-ranked player in the world and many consider him the favorite to win the #1 Number One contest. On Wednesday, Astedt took down a GGPoker Spring Festival event for the second time in two days. On Tuesday, he won Event #14-H ($1,050 PLO-NL Bounty) for a $39,974.81. One day later, he kept the bounty hunter them going by winning Event #19-H ($2,100 Bounty Six Max) for $98,807.91. His final victim, 'pawwowbam' earned
  21. The GGPoker Spring Festival is only into Day 3, but there's already a Series Most Valuable Player frontrunner. Lev Gottlieb, who won a World Series of Poker bracelet last summer on GGPoker, took down a pair of $10,000 buy-in events on Tuesday, including the $10,300 Super MILLION$, for more than $900,000 in earnings. Over the past 18 months, the Super MILLION$ on GGPoker has become a marquee online poker event with some of poker's best players duking it out each week for their share of $2 million in prize money. On Tuesday, Gottlieb topped the super-sized 312-entry field in Event #5-H ($
  22. The headliner for the opening of the GGPoker Spring Festival on Saturday was deadmau5 but once action got underway the poker players took over and one Canadian stole the show and walked away with a seven-figure score. Canadian Guillaume Nolet outlasted 197 other entries to win Event #6-High ($25,500 Sunday Five Million) for $1,084,891.90. Andras Nemeth finished in second place for $813,553.79 while Francisco 'VaPaCooler' Benitez came in third place for a $610,079.27 payday. The event fell just two players short of meeting the $5,000,000 guarantee making it the only High level buy-in event t
  23. GGPoker is smashing records in the online poker arena once again with its upcoming GG Spring Festival. The online poker series, which runs from April 4-28, promises at least $150 million in total guaranteed prize money, the highest series guarantee in online poker history. The festival includes more than 110 events each of which includes tiered buy-ins of Low, Medium, and High. Of the more than 300 tournaments, 39 of them will feature a prize pool guarantee of $1 million or more. The whole festival kicks off on April 3 when GGPoker partners with Canadian electric music producer and DJ de
