Every month The PocketFives Milestone Report looks at the online poker players who are achieving career-best achievement or reaching new heights in the rankings. 'MatveichukR' Earns Eighth Triple Crown Longtime PocketFiver Roman ‘MatveichukR’ Matveychuk picked up an impressive eighth Triple Crown during the week of July 31. The achievement moves him into a tie for sixth place on the all-time Triple Crown leaderboard with Dara ‘Doke’ O’Kearney. It is enough for an eighth Triple Crown to be marveled at alone, but how Matveychuk did it is just as remarkable. He won all three tournaments for this Triple Crown on the same day. Matveychuk picked up his first victory of the Triple Crown with a win in PokerStars $109 Bounty Builder on July 30 for $8,114. Then over on Titan Poker, he won the €8000 Championship for $2,490. It’s very likely that while he was grinding both of those tournaments, he was also headed for eventual victory in the partypoker Fast Bounty Hunter for another $2,782. In total, the three tournaments earned him over $11,000 and a spot in elite company on the Triple Crown leaderboard. Oh, Hello $7 Million Russia’s current #1-ranked online player ‘hellohellohello’ recently soared past the $7 million mark in lifetime earnings. A consummate grinder, the major milestone was actually surpassed with a relatively minor score. Officially, he eclipsed $7 million with a 21st place finish in the July 26 edition of the PokerStars Hot $215 for $484. However, he’d been working on climbing to the new plateau all month, with as many as five five-figure scores including an early July victory in the $2,100 Sunday High Roller on PokerStars for $38,215. 2018 has been an especially good year for ‘hellohellohello’. He had spent the bulk of the summer in the top 3 of the PocketFives Worldwide Rankings, even having reached a career-high peak at #2. He looks to resume his climb to the top of the rankings with the upcoming start of WCOOP and POWERFEST, the latter event of which he captured a championship in Event #25, the $5,200 Super High Roller Championship Event for over $65,000 back in May. ‘Ramiro’ Rolls Past $4 Million Another one of the PocketFives Worldwide Top 10, Ramiro ‘Ramiro’ Petrone, celebrated a major career breakthrough. The current #6 player in the world has now amassed over $4 million in lifetime earnings. Petrone took first place in the July 25 edition of the PokerStars Big $215 for over $5,000 which was more than enough to get him over the top of $4 million. He played out the rest of July, accumulating seven four-figure cashes in the final week of the month to propel him up over $40,000 on his way to his next major million mark. If Petrone’s performance in the previous major online series is any indication, a large chunk of his next million could be made during WCOOP. He earned a SCOOP title in May by winning Event #19 for over $57,000 in addition to his TCOOP Main Event runner-up finish for over $282,000 back in March 2018. Other newly minted millionaires include Hungary’s Toth ’SlyderS’ Bela who just reached the $2 million lifetime total. Also, ‘Marcos Chaiben’, Somalia's ‘Nikks’, ‘Virgilik’ from Romania, and James ‘jamex’ Walsh all cleared $1 million in lifetime online cashes. Major Moves In Worldwide Top 5 A pair of top-tier online pros have reached new career high rankings this week in the PocketFives Worldwide Rankings. Both Matt ‘GINS FINEST’ Stone (#3) and Jonathan ‘proudflop’ Proudfoot (#5) have been clawing their way to the top of the online poker world and this week, both found footing in the top 5. For Stone, he’s now up against one of the toughest ceilings in the rankings to breach. The only two players left above him in the rankings are a pair of Swedish superstars, ‘lena900’ and ‘C Darwin2’, who are generally considered to be in the ranks of the best in the world, regardless of rankings. If either of these players finds a way to make it to #1, they will be the first player in 2018 to hold that rank that isn’t one of the super Swedes. Additionally, three players, ‘lincownz’, ‘GoFighter’ and ‘selouan1991’, all make their debut in the top 100 this week.

December offered one last chance for PocketFivers to make 2018 a memorable year with all of the action going down on 888poker. Plenty of PocketFivers had things go their way on the virtual tables, hauling in hefty scores that made for a happy holiday season. The month’s biggest winner on 888poker was Russian crusher Matveychuk ‘MatveichukR’ Roman. The eight-time Triple Crown Award winner put in plenty of volume on 888poker during the month, cashing in 14 tournaments and taking home $32,376. Roman, who plays on 888poker under the screen name ‘EyeOfSkadi’, scored three podium finishes in the month with his highlight cash being his runner-up finish in the December 9 edition of the $100,000 Sunday Mega Deep for $14,151. He followed that up later in the month with a fourth-place finish in the December 23 edition of the $125,000 Sunday Mega Deep Bonanza for another $9,688. ‘MatveichukR’ is rapidly closing in on $5.5 million in lifetime earnings and currently sits as Russia’s #15-ranked player. In 2018, whenever one would put together a list of top performers, Roman ‘Romeopro’ Romanovsky would likely be on it. Here Romanovsky sits as 888poker’s #2-ranked winner for the month of December. The Ukranian added $26,250 to his more than $11 million in career cashes during the month and it all came from one stellar score. Early in the month, on December 2, Romanovsky bested the 51 runner field and took down the $1,050 Whale for the five-figure score. It was his second time taking down the same event since his victory in the XL Eclipse Main Event, which brought him a score of $187,500. Romanovsky is on the verge of another 888poker milestone, as the #4-ranked player in the world is less than $3,000 from eclipsing $1,000,000 in earnings on 888poker alone. Ivan ‘Hurrrrican3’ Gabrieli also has a December to remember on 888poker as turned in two podium finishes out of three tournaments to earn $25,862. That’s good for the third highest earner on the site. His spotlight score was a runner-up finish in the December 30 edition of the $1,050 Whale where he took home $13,500. Gabrieli is a former top-10 PocketFiver with over $2.6 million in lifetime earnings. 888poker Top 10 Earners of December 2018 User Name Total Won MatveichukR $32,376.33 Romeopro $26,250.00 Hurrrrican3 $25,862.50 TheClaimeer $23,187.00 N33dCoaching $17,074.53 SvZff $15,892.93 Progre69 $14,697.50 mugggggy $14,313.52 freddeaik $13,500.00 Neeriukaas $11,027.06 When it comes to putting in max volume, some of the micro and low-stakes grinders have the edge.
