  1. With over $1 million in guaranteed money up for grabs, WSOP.com’s Coast to Coast Classic II (C2CCII) offered players in poker’s 'Regulated States of America' another chance to play for big money without having to set up shop outside of the USA. PocketFivers from Nevada, New Jersey, and Delaware battled against each other from August 3-12 in the 36-event series. The Main Event was one of the larger online tournaments held inside the USA since Black Friday carrying a $250,000 guaranteed prize pool. With so much up for grabs, it’s no wonder that a number of PocketFives members took up the challenge and padded their bankrolls. Here are just a few of the players who found success during the series. Michael ‘Gags30’ Gagliano One of New Jersey’s premier poker players, Michael ‘Gags30’ Gagliano crushed during Coast to Coast II, taking home more than his fair share of the series $1 million guarantee. Playing under his WSOP.com screen name ‘itWasThatOr0’, Gagliano secured two five-figure scores, both over $30,000. First up for Gagliano was a victory in Event #9, the $100,000 No Limit Hold’em Sunday Special for just over $36,000. ‘Gags’ then parlayed his victory into Event #16, the $85,000 No Limit Hold’em High Roller. He took that one down too for another $32,403. Gagliano only registered three total cashes for the series, however earning the victory in the two largest tournaments outside of the Main Event brought him a total of $68,659. He currently sits as the #5-ranked player inside the United States. Jon ‘itsmejon’ Borenstein New Jersey grinder, and 2017 WPT500 Main Event Winner, Jon ‘itsmejon’ Borenstein continued to put himself in good spots during the series. Borenstein cashed in six of the 36 events, four of which he found himself at the final table. His series was highlighted by a runner-up finish in Event #11, the $20,000 No Limit Hold’em Sunday Funday for $5,906. He then joined Gagliano at the final table of Event #16 where he picked up an additional $11,174 for his fourth-place finish. Borenstein wrapped the series earning just over $20,000. His results during the series helped him eclipse $500,000 in total lifetime online earnings. David ‘bewater’ Goodman Nevada’s hottest online poker player and the current #2-ranked player in the United States, David ‘bewater’ Goodman continued his heater this August. Goodman only cashed in four different events and three of the cashes were for four-figures. Impressively, two of his results ended up being second place finishes. Goodman first scored just over $6,000 in Event #7, $35,000 No Limit Hold’em Saturday Night Shuffle Up. Three days later he just missed out on a victory when he finished as the runner-up in Event #17, $35,000 No Limit Hold’em Tuesday Showdown for $8770. By the end of the series ‘bewater’ added over $17,000 to his $1.3 million lifetime online earnings. His results helped him reach an all-time career high ranking of #64 in the PocketFives Worldwide Rankings. Chad ‘Flushoff11’ Dubik Hailing from Englewood, New Jersey, Chad ‘Flushoff11’ Dubik found himself at the final table of every C2CCII event he cashed in. In fact, it was five final tables in total including a seat at the final table of the series’ Main Event. Dubek secured a career-high cash when he took the bronze medal in Event #33, $250,000 No Limit Hold’em Main Event for $21,500. Dubek was the beneficiary of some overlay as he outlasted 307 of the 310 runners that played in the event. However, Dubek had been running hot all series long, picking up four other four-figure cashes during the week. This run included a victory in Event #23, $17,500 No Limit Hold’em Chips Chips Chips Event for $5,085. In total he picked up over $30,000 in just under a week, helping him grind past $100,000 in career lifetime earnings. Justin ‘Lappy’ Taylor Lapka Currently ranked #447 in the world, Saint Paul, MN native Justin ‘Lappy’ Taylor Lapka found himself in the money in seven of the C2CCII events. Playing out of Nevada, Lapka made himself one $18,000 over the course of the series on the back of a pair of final table finishes. He played with Gagliano at the final table of Event #9, where he finished in fourth place for $9,345. The very next day he outright won Event #14, $20,000 No Limit Hold’em Little Monday for another $6,894. The Coast to Coast run good comes on the heels of his fifth-place finish in the World Series of Poker’s Online Championship bracelet event where he earned a career-high cash of over $65,000.

  2. The United States Online Poker Rankings takes a look at the top online players in the current legalized and regulated markets available in the U.S. Jon 'itsmejon' Borenstein, the #1 ranked player in New Jersey, has made his way to the top of the PocketFives United States Online Poker Rankings. Borenstein is coming off a month of March that saw him land notables scores of $7,114, $4,777, and $4,690, and he kicked off April with a second-place finish on WSOP.com worth $14,858. Borenstein sits atop the leaderboard with 4.304.83 points, which is just more than 100 points ahead of David 'dehhhhh' Coleman in second place. United States Online Poker Rankings Top 10 RANK PLAYER POINTS 1 Jon 'itsmejon' Borenstein 4,304.83 2 David 'dehhhhh' Coleman 4,203.27 3 Ryan 'shipthesherb' Hohner 4,086.83 4 Daniel 'centrfieldr' Lupo 4,066.66 5 Michael 'Gags30' Gagliano 4,040.34 6 'Hurricane27' 3,947.15 7 Yong 'ykwon17' Kwon 3,870.66 8 David 'bewater' Goodman 3,822.50 9 Vladimir 'Donate_here' Alexandrov 3,807.28 10 Jed 'JCHAK' Hoffman 3,744.76 Borenstein's $4,690 score in March came from a second-place finish in the WSOP.com $15,000 Weekly Friday [Re-entry, 6 Max], earning him 111.23 points. His $7,114 score was a seventh-place result in WSOP Circuit Event #8 - $100,000 NLH High Roller 6-Max 2x Re-entry (Official Ring Event) for 132.88 points. He followed that performance with a fifth-place finish in the WSOP Circuit Event #9 - $50,000 NLH 2x Re-entry (Official Ring Event) for $4,777 and 110.21 points. Not too far behind Borenstein is Coleman, and he also had himself an impressive month of March. Coleman won the WSOP.com $10,000 Daily [Re-entry] on March 5 for $4,663 and 129.05 points, took second in the WSOP.com Tuesday Showdown - $30,000 GTD [Re-entry] on March 13 for $7,939 and 142.57 points, and won the BorgataPoker.com SUNDAY $35K GTD NLH [3X RE] on March 18 for $7,455 and 187.08 points. Ryan 'shipthesherb' Hohner, who is currently in third place with 4,086.83 points, had a March that was highlighted by a second place finish in the WSOP Circuit Event #8 - $100,000 NLH High Roller 6-Max 2x Re-entry (Official Ring Event) on March 6. In that event, Hohner won $29,185 and earned 281.77 points. He also had a pair of final table finishes in the WSOP.com $20,000 Weekly Tuesday [Re-entry] in back-to-back weeks to close out the month, finishing fourth on March 20 for $2,740 and 80.56 points and second on March 27 for $5,997 and 125.78 points. Rounding out the top five were Daniel 'centrfieldr' Lupo and Michael 'Gags30' Gagliano, both regulars at the top of the PocketFives United States Online Poker Rankings.
  3. New Jersey’s Ryan ‘shipthesherb’ Hohner has taken over the top spot in the PocketFives United States Online Poker Rankings. After putting in light volume through the month of March, Hohner hit the online felts hard in the month of April, racking up 28 cashes - eight of which were for four-figures or better. His spotlight cash came at the end of the month when he took the bronze in the WSOP.com $50,000 Monthly Sunday Six Max for $8,461 and 136.22 PLB points. That came just one week after taking down the PokerStars NJ $200 Sunday Special for $6,450 and 173.21. Hohner’s recent productivity has helped elevate him to a career-high worldwide ranking of #197 in the world. Hohner currently sits with 4,304.66 total PLB points, holding nearly a 119 point lead over the #2-ranked David ‘dehhhhh’ Coleman. United States Online Poker Rankings Top 10 RANK PLAYER POINTS 1 Ryan ‘shipthesherb’ Hohner 4304.66 2 David ‘dehhhhh’ Coleman 4185.69 3 Yong ‘ykwon17’ Kwon 4086.77 4 Michael ‘Gags30’ Gagliano 4084.05 5 Jon ‘itsmejon’ Borenstein 3987.75 6 Jed ‘JCHAK’ Hoffman 3979.91 7 Daniel ‘centrfieldr’ Lupo 3908.17 8 Vladimir ‘Donate_here’ Alexandrov 3805.51 9 'Lav519' 3797.56 10 Brian 'bexel' Sherrier 3727.5 Coleman also put in a large amount of volume on the regulated New Jersey online poker sites, turning in nine top-three finishes out of his 43 total cashes in April. He posted nineteen four-figure cashes in the month with a highlight score of $7,846 for his runner-up finish in the WSOP.com $30,000 Tuesday Showdown. Coleman also took home outright wins in four tournaments resulting in scores of $3,390, $6,435, $6,188 and $3,023. He currently sits less than $6K away from eclipsing $1.8M in total career online earnings. Yong ‘ykwon17’ Kwon jumped up to the #3 rank in the U.S.A. in April after putting together a nice month that included 59 cashes, 16 of which were good for podium finishes. He started the month off with four outright victories in the first week including a win in the WSOP.com $20,000 Weekly Tuesday for $9,828. However, that wasn’t Kwon's largest cash of the month as he also went on to take down the April 12 edition of the WSOP.com Spring OC #36 for another $12,918 and 214.79 PLB points. He chased in nine PLB qualifying tournaments to amass a total of 4,086.77. Kwon needed every bit of that to surpass perennial United States online poker rankings leader Michael ‘Gags30’ Gagliano who sits ranked at #4 this month with 4,084.05 PLB points. Gagliano didn’t put in a full online grind in April, but what he did do reaped major rewards. ‘Gags’ only posted 13 total cashes in the month, six of which were top-three finishes. Of those finishes, four of those were outright wins. His top score of the month was a victory in the April 24 edition of the WSOP.com $30,000 Tuesday Showdown for $13,450 and 211.74 PLB points. In total, Gagliano banked over $55,000 in the month. Finishing off the top five is last month’s #1-ranked Jon ‘itsmejon’ Borenstein. Borenstein started off the month strong with a runner-up finish in the WSOP.com $50,000 Monthly Sunday for $14,858 and 195.05 PLB points. He also found success over on partypoker, taking down the April 26 edition of the Mega $320 Thursday for $2,824. In total, Borenstein had a successful month with 41 cashes, 12 of which were for four-figures or better.
  4. New Jersey online grinder Yong ‘ykwon17’ Kwon’s reign atop the PocketFives United States Online Poker Rankings continues. After a busy October filled with both the WSOP.com’s Fall Online Championships and PokerStars NJ’s New Jersey Championship of Online Poker, Kwon sits atop the leaderboard with 5,227 points. Since our last update, Kwon accumulated eight more PLB-qualifying scores including a victory in the October 25 NJCOOP Event #37 ($150 NLHE Turbo) for $3,438 and 122.51 PLB points. His largest score over the past month came during the WSOP.com’s Fall OC $50,000 Special Tuesday Showdown where a final table finish brought him $5,382 and another 94.46 PLB points. During the month of October, Kwon racked up 19 five-figure scores for a total of more than $70,000 in earnings. In addition to being ranked #1 in the U.S., he currently sits ranked at #73 in the world and is rapidly approaching $2.7 million in career online earnings. U.S. Online Poker Rankings Top 10 RANK PLAYER POINTS 1 Yong ‘ykwon17’ Kwon 5,227 2 Daniel ‘centrfieldr’ Lupo 4,912 3 David ‘dehhhhh’ Coleman 4,828 4 Vladimir ‘Donate_here’ Alexandrov 4,586 5 Jon ‘itsmejon’ Borenstein 4,299 6 Mike ‘Lav519’ Lavenburg 4,198 7 Ryan ‘shipthesherb’ Hohner 4,031 8 Jason ‘JLaw’ Lawhun 3,924 9 Michael ‘Gags30’ Gagliano 3,731 10 Michael ‘JohnnnyDrama’ Haberman 3,634 Daniel ‘centrfieldr’ Lupo (4,912 points) once again sits right behind Kwon in the U.S. rankings. Like all serious New Jersey grinders, Lupo was active in the major online series, putting up big results and taking down titles. On October 17, he took down the PokerStars NJCOOP Event #19 ($100, NLHE Turbo) for $2,370 and 100.00 PLB points. Then, the very next day, he claimed a WSOP.com Fall OC title by winning Event #28 ($10,000 Pot Limit Omaha Six Max) for $3,643 and 110.20 PLB points. Lupo did capture a five-figure score with his runner-up finish in NJCOOP Event #15 ($1,000 NLHE High Roller Six Max) for $11,489, good for another 147.53 PLB points. [ptable zone="Global Poker Article Ad"][ptable zone="888poker NJ"][ptable zone="GG Poker"] Less than 100 points behind Lupo is David ‘dehhhhh’ Coleman (4,828) who not only ranks #3 in the U.S. but is sitting at a career-high ranking of #93 in the world. Coleman has been putting in heavy volume and it has been paying off. During the last week of October, Coleman finished top-three in four different NJCOOP tournaments. He won Event #32 ($200 NLHE Super Tuesday) for $6,554 and Event #47 ($75 NLHE Sunday SuperSonic SE) for $2,009. On the same day as his second NJCOOP title, Coleman also took down the WSOP.com $50,000 Monthly Sunday for another $23,408 and 270.46 PLB points. Coleman’s heater continued into the beginning of November as, since October 22, he has 12 top-three finishes - eight of which are good for wins. This includes a victory in the November 6 edition of the WSOP.com Tuesday Showdown for $17,036 and another 244.49 PLB points. Vladimir ‘Donate_here’ Alexandrov (4,586) keeps his spot at #4 in the U.S. again this month. Alexandrov also managed to pick up a pair of titles in October. First, on October 13 he won NJCOOP Event #7 ($150 NLHE Sunday SuperSonic SE) for $2,927 and 109.54 PLB points. Then three days later, he topped the field in WSOP.com’s Fall OC Event #22 ($20,000 NLHE R&A) for $8,179 and 173.05 PLB points. Alexandrov has had a nice start to his November, picking up a final table finish in the November 6 WSOP.com Tuesday Showdown for $4,782. Wrapping up the USA top 5 is Jon ‘itsmejon’ Borenstein (4,299), who moves up one spot from last month. Borenstein holds the honor of being the only player to capture three 2019 NJCOOP titles. His first came on October 15 in Event #10 ($250 NLHE Super Tuesday) for $7,341. He followed that up the very next day by taking down Event #15 ($1,000 NLHE High Roller Six Max) for $20,893. Then he wrapped up his series by winning Event #50 ($150 NLHE Dee Hyper-Turbo Six Max) for $2,775. New Jersey Online Poker Rankings Top 5 New Jersey online poker players.

  5. On the back of an impressive February, New Jersey online grinder Yong ‘ykwon17’ Kwon has returned to the top of the USA Online Poker Rankings. After spending the past two months in the #2 spot, Kwon (4,516 PLB points) seemingly doubled-down his efforts in February. He increased his volume and picked up a total of 69 cashes, earning more than $86,000 in the month. Of those results, 12 were PLB-qualifying scores including his spotlight score in the February 26 edition of the WSOP.com’s $25,000 NLHE High Roller where he finished as the runner-up for $9,283 and 149.82 PLB points. That came just days after he made a final table run in the WSOP.com’s $50,000 Monthly Sunday where he earned $6,150 and 103.64 PLB points. In February, Kwon booked 25 four-figure scores in the month and 21 total podium finishes. [ptable zone="Global Poker Article Ad"][ptable zone="888poker"][ptable zone="PokerStars NJ"] That’s what it took to surpass David ‘dehhhhh’ Coleman (4,459), who dropped one spot to #2. Like Kwon, Coleman spent the majority of the month grinding online, posting 48 total cashes for a total of just over $57,000 in earnings. Coleman kicked off the month with a runner-up finish in the February 5 edition of the BorgataPoker.com Mega $535 Tuesday for $5,060 and 100.06 PLB points. Days later he posted what would be his high score for the month with a second-place finish in the WSOP.com’s $30,000 Weekly Sunday for $7,902 and 138.23 PLB points. His recent results have helped him climb to be the #85-ranked player in the world. Michael ‘JohnnyDrama’ Haberman Jr. (4,076) jumped up three spots to take over the #3 spot in the US Online Rankings. Haberman had a fast start to February with a victory in the PokerStars NJ Sunday Special for $4,450 and 127.21 PLB points. Then he went on a tear during the WSOP.com Winter Online Championships, taking home three titles. His first came in Event #3 (NLHE 4-Max) where he earned $9,440 plus 188.99 PLB points. Five days later, he went the distance in Event #18 ($15,000 NLHE Turbo Deepstack) for another $5,516 and 142.00 PLB points. His biggest score of the month arrived with his third Winter OC title as he outlasted 353 entries of Event #43 ($30,000 NLHE Special Sunday Deepstack) for $11,932 and another 218.47 PLB points. All in all, Haberman finished the month earning over $62,000 on 54 total cashes and climbed to a career-high ranking of #124 in the world. Longtime New Jersey grinder Jon ‘itsmejon’ Borenstein jumped up one spot to #4 this month after taking all of January off. He returned to the online tables in mid-February to pick up 15 total cashes including a victory in Event #22 of the Winter OC ($10,000 NLHE Knockout) for $4,191 and 153.07 PLB points. Helping him in the rankings, eight of his 15 cashes were PLB-qualified scores. Completing the top-5 for February is Vladimir ‘Donate_here’ Alexandrov, who steps back a single spot to #5. A good part of the reason Alexandrov moved back is simply a lack of volume. The New Jersey resident took the better part of the month off, recording just eight total cashes. However, he booked a big score by taking down the February 19 edition of the BorgataPoker.com Mega $535 Tuesday for $6,765 and 143.18 PLB points.

His spotlight score came early in the month when he finished as the runner-up in February 2 edition of the WSOP.com $15,000 Weekly Saturday for $3,140.
