  1. Through the first four events of the 2021 U.S. Poker Open, some of the best players in the world have claimed victory by dominating the final table. On Tuesday night, Joey Weissman arrived at the final table of Event #5 ($10,000 NLHE) with a middle-of-the-pack stack and watched as Adam Hendrix built up a monster stack and appeared to be on his way to claiming victory. That's when Weissman completely turned the tables and came back from holding just 14% of the chips in play when heads up play began to eliminate Hendrix and put an exclamation point on his comeback. Down to just 11 big blin
  2. When the final table of Event #3 ($10,000 NLHE) of the 2021 U.S. Poker Open began, Joe McKeehen was sitting pretty atop the chip counts. A little over two hours later, McKeehen was posing for winner photos after adding another title to his already impressive career resume after dominating the final table from start to finish. It took more than 38 minutes for McKeehen to find his first victim. With blinds of 40,000/80,000 (80,000 BBA), Barry Hutter raised to raised to 400,000 with [poker card="jd"][poker card="th"] leaving himself 160,000 behind. McKeehen woke up with [poker card="kc"][poker
  3. Over a year ago, Qing Liu made the final table of the World Poker Tour Gardens Poker Championship. That final table was meant to be played in Las Vegas last March but the coronavirus pandemic put an extended delay on that event. This week, Liu traveled to Las Vegas to play the WPT Venetian event before finally getting to play the Gardens Championship final table on Wednesday. Now he's suddenly in position to win two WPT titles - and more than $1.3 million - in a 24 hour span. On Tuesday night Liu beat 2015 World Series of Poker Main Event champion Joe McKeehen heads up to win the WPT Veneti
  4. Hosted by Lance Bradley and Donnie Peters, The Fives Poker Podcast runs each week and covers the latest poker news, preview upcoming events, and debate the hottest topics in poker. Lance and Donnie recap the second week of the 2020 World Series of Poker Online which included a 70-year-old first-time online poker player winning a bracelet, 2015 Joe McKeehen winning the third bracelet of his career, and poker YouTuber Ryan Depaulo winning almost $160,000 and his first WSOP bracelet from the parking lot of a New Jersey Whole Foods. The guys also preview the upcoming WSOP events on GGPoker a
  5. The argument could be made that Joe McKeehen is the most successful World Series of Poker Main Event champion of the modern era. The 2015 WSOP Main Event champion added a second bracelet in 2017 and has nearly $9 million in live earnings outside of his Main Event victory. Early Wednesday morning, McKeehen added to that resume when he took down Event #14 ($3,200 High Roller) of the 2020 WSOP Online. The event, the biggest buy-in on the 2020 WSOP Online events on WSOP.com, drew 328 unique players who accounted for an additional 128 total reentries to build a prize pool of $1,507,840. McKee
  6. As the launch of Pennsylvania online poker approaches, PocketFives takes a look at how players from that state did at the 2019 World Series of Poker. Pennsylvania poker players accounted for 2,439 total entries at the 2019 WSOP, ranking the state 15th out of all states to have players participate in the series. Per official numbers sourced from the WSOP, US-player participation made up for 129,154 entries from live tournaments at the 2019 WSOP. With 2,439 of those entries coming from PA poker players, Pennsylvania accounted for nearly 2% of the US participation at the 2019 WSOP. Pennsylv

Behind the pile of money and glory are another man who helped to finance McKeehen’s buy in and the entry fee for at least a dozen more players that year. Gjergj Sinishtaj has grown from the preeminent online cash game prodigy of his generation to piece buyer ext
  8. Talk about a tune-up. PocketFiver Joseph dude904McKeehen (pictured) won the Wynn Fall Classic Main Event this week and earned $90,000. Sure, it wasn't the largest score you'll see on the live circuit, but for a man about to play for a $7.6 million first prize in the World Series of Poker Main Event in two weeks, we're pretty sure the win is far more meaningful. The Wynn Fall Classic Main Event had a $1,600 buy-in and a field of 267. Twenty-seven players finished in the money and, interestingly enough, making the final table alongside McKeehen was another November Niner, Dennis Phillips, who
  9. Daniel Negreanucalled what Joe 'dude904' McKeehen did the past three days the most lopsided performance at a Main Event final table since Stu Ungar won his third title in 1997. And it's easy to understand why. McKeehen was personally responsible for six of the eight eliminations at the final table on his way to winning the 2015 WSOP Main Event, $7,683,346, and the first WSOP bracelet of his career. "I was just focused and I didn’t want to get ahead of myself, I have been that way the whole tournament because it was working," said McKeehen. "I feel pretty good now of course."
  10.   Frankie O'Dell Wins Third Omaha Hi-Lo Bracelet Frankie O'Dell just might be the best Omaha Hi-Lo tournament player ever. On Sunday he beat out a final table that included Robert Mizrachi and Owais Ahmed to win his third bracelet in that variation and if you're still unsure about his place in the game, just ask him. "Well if you don't know, there's only one person who has three limit Omaha eight bracelets and you're talking to him," O'Dell said after his win. "So until someone passes me or catches me, I'm not going to say nothing. I'm just going to leave it right there." O'Dell's
  11. Busting out of a World Poker Tour event usually means a miserable end to one's poker trip. Aaron Mermelstein was having none of that. After busting in 53rd place in the WPT Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown on Tuesday, Mermelstein jumped into the $25,000 High Roller event and the Pennsylvania poker player beat a final table that included the reigning GPI Player of the Year, a former WSOP Main Event champ and a WSOP Europe Main Event champ to pick up the second biggest score of his career. Ben Yu didn't come to the final table with the shortest stack, but with just six big blinds to work wit
  12. [caption width="640"] Joe McKeehen added a second bracelet to his list of poker accomplishments on Wednesday (WSOP photo)[/caption] Three more bracelet winners to tell you about from Wednesday at the 2017 World Series of Poker. Two of them have broken through and taken down their first WSOP gold, while the other broke through in the biggest way back in 2015 by winning the Main Event. That, and more, in today’s round-up. 2015 World Champ Adds Second WSOP Gold Remember Joe McKeehen from the TV two years ago? You should, because since he took down the Main Event for $7.68 million, McK
  13. When the November Nine finally reconvened at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino on Sunday night in Las Vegas, all eyes were on overwhelming chip leader Joe dude904 McKeehen. The 24-year-old poker pro did nothing to disappoint. McKeehen eliminated Patrick Chan, Federico Butteroni, and Pierre Neuville to get the table down to just six players before play ended for the night. Sure, other players were active and there were some memorables on the broadcast, but the show belonged to McKeehen. It was the second hand of the night that saw Chan eliminated, having to call off the rest of his s
  14. Coming into Sunday night, all eyes were on the short stacks. The shortest of those stacks, Patrick Chan, had his work cut out for him if he were going to make a final table run. After over three months of waiting, Chan's World Series of Poker Main Event final table run lasted just two hands, as he was quickly dispatched by chip leader Joe McKeehen. On the second hand of the night, the table folded around to the big stack, who moved all-in from the button. Chan and Federico Butteroni, the two shortest stacks at the table, were in the blinds and after the former called to put himself a
  15. [caption width="640"] Harrah's Cherokee Casino Resort is playing host to the WSOP Global Casino Championship.[/caption] This August, after making stops across the US and beyond, the WSOP Circuit returns to Harrah’s Cherokee Casino Resort in North Carolina, where the season’s top players face off for the 2015-2016 WSOP Global Casino Championship and their shot at the minimum $1 million prize pool. The event, formerly known as the WSOP National Championship, runs August 9-11 and awards at least $1 million in prize money along with a coveted WSOP bracelet. This season marks the first time tha
  16. Leading up to this Main Event final table in July, Ofer Zvi Stern was one of the more aggressive players late on Day 7, using a "kill or be killed" strategy that saw him accumulate a nearly 30,000,000-chip second place stack coming into Sunday night's November Nine restart. Stern kept up his aggression Sunday, playing a few sizable pots with some of the other big-stacked players, including Neil Blumenfield, who was involved in a few pre-flop leveling wars with Stern. None of those hands altered Stern's standing coming into Monday's six-handed restart, though, as he more or less stay
  17. Over the 31 days of July, 31 different players picked up a World Series of Poker bracelet on WSOP.com. While the winners dominated the headlines, there were thousands of players - 2,289 to be exact - who added to their WSOP resume with an in-the-money finish. Digging through all of the numbers from the 2020 WSOP Online on WSOP.com shows a number of players who found a way to shine bright on poker's biggest stage. Cash(ing) is King for Ryan Laplante Nobody found their way into the money more often Ryan Laplante. The Las Vegas resident cashed in 18 of the 30 events he was eligible to play in.
  18. The 2020 World Series of Poker is just past the halfway point of the tournaments being held on WSOP.com. Through Saturday there are 17 events in the books and a number of the best players in the world continue to pile up the stats - and dollars - on their quest for WSOP glory. Here's a look at some of the numbers from the first 17 events. Laplante, Zinno Close in Double-Digit Cashes Ryan Laplante and Anthony Zinno have each cashed nine times through the first 17 events on the schedule. Zinno has earned $27,364 from those events while Laplante has won $23,791. There are 11 players who h
  19. [caption width="640"] Before he was the Main Event Champion, Joe McKeehen was part of the lucrative Pennsylvania online community. (WPT photo)[/caption] Prior to Black Friday, Pennsylvania was a powerhouse in the online poker scene with multiple players sporting over $3 million in lifetime earnings. The all-time money list in the Keystone State stars a few familiar faces who have done well in the live arena. With online poker set to officially come back to the state in 2018, we’re taking a look at the top 10 on Pennsylvania’s online money list. The #1 and #2 spots on the list are s
  20. After the nearly immediate elimination of final table short stack Patrick Chan, the torch was passed to Federico Butteroni. While seemingly everyone else played some pretty sizable pots, with big stacks mixing in three-bets, four-bets, and even some all-in shoves, Butteroni remained quiet and patient, looking for opportunities to get his short stack in the middle. The Italian couldn't find any of those opportunities through the rest of Level 35, but a few hands into Level 36, he did. The table folded to Butteroni, who moved all-in for 3,200,000 from the cutoff with Qc 9c. With the b
  21. For the last 116 days, Joe McKeehen and the rest of the 2015 WSOP November Ninehave been waiting patiently for the World Series of Poker Main Event final table to resume. Sunday night, live on ESPN, the cards are back in the air with the final nine players all chasing the $7.68 million first place prize money and the highly coveted bracelet.

  22. Rumor has it that poker is a young man's game and the run of 20-something WSOP Main Event champions just might be proof of that. But, 72-year-old Pierre Neuville came into the 2015 WSOP Main Event final table hoping to win one for the older crowd. Unfortunately, a few key hands - and of course a final confrontation with chip leader Joe McKeehen - ended any hope of Neuville taking the bracelet back to the Belgium. On the fourth hand of the night, Neuville opened to 850,000 from UTG with Td Ts. Neil Blumenfield three-bet from the small blind with Q Q to 2,500,000. Neuville took a minute to co
  23. The first day of play at the 2015 WSOP Main Event is in the books and Joe 'dude904' McKeehen continues to lead. While his chip count - over 90,000,000 - is the probably the most important number heading into Monday night's action, there are a number of other stats from Day 1 that are worth taking a deeper look at. The hottest topic of conversation on Sunday night was the seemingly slow pace of play. Most people were focusing on just how much time Zvi Stern seemed to be taking with every decision. Here's how the numbers look for the hands played on Sunday night. Total Hands Played: 72
  24. There’s a reason that summer in Las Vegas is often called ‘poker player summer camp’ and it’s not just because the World Series of Poker is going on. During the summer bracelet chasing takes center stage in Sin City but over the past decade, many other Las Vegas poker rooms have battled with the WSOP for the hearts and minds of the poker playing public by consistently scheduling competing summer series that offer players excellent value through great structures and big guarantees. Here's a quick look around the city at some of those non-WSOP tournaments keeping poker players in action.
  25. In the days leading up to the World Poker Tour Rolling Thunder event at Thunder Valley Casino in Lincoln, California, David Larson was playing mega-satellites trying to get into the Main Event. He stone-bubbled one, walking away with $2,000 in cash. He decided to use that money to buy-in directly to the $3,500 buy-in event. Good decision. Larson outlasted 439 other players to win the WPT Rolling Thunder event for $295,128 and now finds himself preparing to play the WPT Tournament of Champions this May in Las Vegas. Larson took care of the first elimination at the final table. Down to jus
