  1. It’s been over six years since Brazil’s Yuri ‘Yuri Martins’ Dzivielevski was the #1-ranked online poker player in the world and this week he took another step closer to becoming it again. After weeks of hovering inside and out of the worldwide top five for the better part of two months, the tournament superstar unseated Croatia's Ivan ‘zufo16’ Zufic to assume the #2 spot and became the next player to make a run at fellow Brazilian Brunno ‘bbotteon’ Botteon, who has now held the #1 ranking for 11 weeks in a row. For many, Dzivieleski first stepped into the poker spotlight when he was featured on the ESPN broadcast during the 2019 Main Event. Ever since then, he has continued to pile up the accolades. He’s won two World Series of Poker gold bracelets, including one in 2020, as well as multiple partypoker POWERFEST events, and a total of four PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker titles. A regular in the online high roller scene, with over $10 million in total lifetime online earnings, Dzivielevski has become known as one of Brazil’s very best all-around players. But there are also plenty of poker players and fans who know that ‘Yuri Martins’ has been a must-respected tournament grinder years before his 2019 “breakout” year. In 2014, he soared to the top of the rankings and ended Nicolas ‘PokerKaiser’ Fierro’s first two-week run as #1. Dzivielevski held the top spot for three weeks, lost it, and then clawed his way back to the top three months later knocking Fedor ‘CrownUpGuy’ Holz out of the top spot. Now, he’s in a position to reach #1 again. He did this by maintaining a disciplined grind and continuing to rack up large scores. Of course, his runner-up finish in America's Cardroom Venom Main Event, which was covered last week, set the stage and pushed him back into the top five. But it was his work over the past week and a half that put him where he is now. A deep run in the February 15 edition of the Natural8 Sunday 500 High Roller brought him a $9,826 payday and 148.04 PLB points. Three days later he bested a field of 242 entries in the PokerStars High Roller Club $530 Bounty Builder for over $10,253 and another 245.97 PLB points. Finally, he tacked on another 310.92 PLB points with his sixth-place result in the PokerStars Turbo Series Event #3 ($5,200 NLHE, High Roller) for $47,858. All of that said though, Dzivielevski has a tough task ahead of him if he’s going to reach #1. Botteon has not slowed down. He picked up three PLB qualifying scores of his own including a win in the PokerStars High Roller Club $530 Bounty Builder. Botteon currently holds a healthy lead on the field with a total of 13,963 total PLB points, 1,672 points above Dzivielevski. However, should Dzivielevski continues to pile on the results, as he did this week in the GGPoker Super MILLION$ where he finished in fourth place for $207,649, he has a real shot at becoming #1 in 2021. Online Poker Rankings Notes This Week • There were several notable jumps inside the top 100 this week including Dalton ‘daltonhb’ Hobold who soared 125 places from #160 to a career-high #36 by stringing together 11-PLB qualifying cashes so far this month including a ninth-place finish in the GGPoker Global MILLION$ where his final table finish brought him an $11,271 score. • ‘Olorion’ is Poland’s #1-ranked player thanks to his victory in the GGPoker Sunday Special $88 that brought him $21,572 and 416.82 PLB points. That spotlight score helped him leap from #217 in the world all the way to #58. However, it’s not a career-high for the longtime grinder who, back in 2013, reached as high as 28 in the world. • Alex ‘Veruz’ Butcher remains the #1-ranked player in the USA, landing at #64 worldwide. It’s hard for players in the USA to maintain high placements on the worldwide stage due to the limited offering of tournaments in America, but Butcher managed a pair of nice PLB scores one week ago and added to it this week with his win in the partypoker NJ Daily $10K GTD for $3,338 and 125.30 PLB points.

  2. [caption width="640"] XL Eclipse provided an action packed Monday at 888poker[/caption] Monday brought with it a new slate of XL Eclipse tournaments over at 888poker. The online site sought to kick off the work week with $175,000 worth of guarantees spread out over 13 events, including the first Pot Limit Omaha offerings on the XL Eclipse schedule. Online players flocked to the 888poker tables, helping the series, once again, exceed their posted guarantees for the day by well over $50,000. All done, there was roughly $239,000 awarded from the XL Eclipse prize pools. 888poker ambassador Parker 'tonkaaaa' Talbot almost became the first two-time XL Eclipse winner. Talbot made a run at the top spot while of Event #27 ($109 $15,000 Tornado No Limit Hold'em). In the end though, Talbot was denied in a heads-up battle with the current #1 ranked player in the Ukraine, Roman 'Romeopro33' Romanovsky. Talbot had to settle for a second place finish and $3,844 to go along with his victory Sunday. Online legend Chris 'moorman1' Moorman also made a deep run in the event, eventually finishing in 12th. The largest tournament of the day, Event #20 ($160 $20,000 Crocodile No Limit Hold'em), was on pace to offer the largest payout of the day, having exceeded its guarantee by over $10,000. A three-way deal at the final table between 'harrrmonica', 'germaxii' and the eventual winner 'Magicooo22' flattened out the payouts at the top. Even with the deal, longtime online grinder 'Magicooo22' still walked with over $5,000, good for one of the four largest payouts of the day. Also, of note, Nicolas 'PKaiser' Fierro – the current #10-ranked online poker player in the PocketFives.com worldwide rankings – walked away with a victory in Event #17 ($109 $15,000 Lightning 6-Max) as did fellow PocketFivers Kevin 'kevlar1991' Frame and 'pokerdave128'.

  3. Chris ‘moorman1’ Moorman Earns Record 27th Triple Crown Author, 888poker ambassador and online poker legend Chris ‘moorman1’ Moorman extended his record-high number of PocketFives Triple Crown wins this week when he earned his 27th Triple Crown. Moorman’s first victory of the week was on his home site of 888poker when he won the $100,000 Sunday Mega Deep on February 5 for $23,446. He then followed it up with a pair of victories over on PokerStars including a win in the Hot $44 for $4,159 on February 6. Finally, to complete the feat he took down a third tournament, the BIG10 $20,000 Gtd, for $3,870 the very next day. His latest Triple Crown badge puts him at six more than the next closest PocketFiver, Nicolas 'PokerKaiser' Fierro (21), and makes it his second Triple Crown within the past four months, his previous one coming on October 30, 2017. Along with the Triple Crown, Moorman picked up enough PLB points to catapult him back into the top 100, currently sitting at #71 in the world. Joining Moorman in earning a Triple Crown this week was Ukraine’s #2-ranked player, ‘Palyaaa’. For ‘Palyaaa’, it’s his first time achieving the honor and he did so with victories on partypoker, PokerStars and WPN. On January 30 he took down a $25,000 Gtd for $5,750 and then on February 5 he won a PokerStars $82 tournament for $2,503. Then on the same day, he won two different partypoker tournaments, both for over $2,000 securing him the Triple Crown badge. Next up for the Ukranian is $3 million in lifetime earnings, a mark that he is likely to achieve in 2018. Together ‘Palyaaa’ and Moorman mark the third and fourth Triple Crown of the year. Sebastian ‘p0cket00’ Sikorski Surpasses $11 Million Canada’s Sebastian ‘p0cket00’ Sikorski achieved another major milestone this week as he becomes only the third person PocketFives history to reach the $11 million lifetime earnings mark. He reached the plateau after taking third in the PokerStars Sunday 500 for $23,150. The only other two players to as of yet earn that much are Chile’s #1-ranked player, Nicolas ‘PokerKaiser’ Fierro and the aforementioned Chris Moorman. Sikorski has already achieved the status as being of the greatest online players in history having earned seven Triple Crowns as well as reaching the very top of the Worldwide Rankings on six different occasions. He currently sits ranked #27 in the world. Also hitting a new lifetime earnings milestones this week are a pair of countrymen from Brazil, Ricardo ‘Ricardsons8’ Nascimento and Gustavo ’22ehnutzz’ Mastelotto. Both players passed the $2 million lifetime earnings mark this week. Nascimento had a big week accented by a deep run in the PokerStars $215 Sunday Million 12th Anniversary for over $8,000. Mastelotto hit his mark with a final table finish in the partypoker Powerfest Event #45-M, also for just over $8k. Ramiro 'rayastar' Petrone Enters Top 10 Six players in the PocketFives Worldwide Top 100 hit career-high rankings this week. Three of which, the Netherlands 'mzzl83', Belgium's 'OempaLoempah', and Vitaliy 'witalii' Pankov from Russia, make their debut in the top 100. Argentian Ramiro 'rayastar' Petrone, after climbing the rankings week in and week out has finally managed to breach the company of the top 10 for the first time in his impressive career. As we pointed out in the latest Worldwide Rankings column, this rise in the rankings came on the heels of a massive career-high cash after taking down the partypoker Powerfest Event #48-H for over $195,000. Career High Rankings In The Top 100 mzzl83 - #114 to #97 witalii - #104 to #96 OempaLoempah - #106 to #78 dulek - #61 to #45 Flat - #39 to #31 rayastar - #13 to #10  
  4. The conclusion of 888poker’s XL Inferno championship online series played out on Sunday as players flocked to take a shot in one of the biggest events 888poker has held hold all year, the $500,000 Gtd XL Inferno Main Event. It took over 12 hours, but in the end it was Sweden’s ‘junijuniorz’ who outlasted the 1,623 player field (523 rebuys) to turn their $250 buy-in into an $85,177.95 payday. Lithuania’s ‘KofeBryant’ fell just one spot short of the title but walked away with $60,618.06 as the runner-up. And ‘9salute46’ finished in third place which was good for a healthy $46,396.52 score. The final table actually offered five-figure scores to the top seven spots including the UK’s ‘JBHInfinity’ who finished in fourth for $32,780.15 and Argentina’s ‘lapechuga4’ who rounded out the top five and walked away with a $23,954.72 payday. There were some other notable names that managed to climb into the cash including former #1-ranked Nicolas ‘PKaiser’ Fierro (64th, $1,109.48), former #2-ranked PocketFiver ‘Inho’ (71st, $1,109.48), the current #6-ranked pro from Sweden Jerry ‘Perrymejsen’ Odeen (79th, $1,059.05), Feargus ‘EZ.PZ’ Murphy (81st, $1,059.05), 2020 XL Inferno High Roller winner ‘HSV_Gandi’ (92nd, $958.18), and online poker superstar ‘Isildur1337x’ (aka ‘CDarwin2’) who finished inside the top 100 for $1,008.62. There were two other tournaments on the XL Inferno Sunday schedule including the $50,000 Gtd Mini Main Event. Romania’s ‘LHadar’ battled through the 1,889 (632 rebuys) field and in a three-way deal, secured themselves $10,676.07 and the XL title. The UK’s ‘meg1066’ was the official runner-up and turned their $33 buy-in into a $9,188.56 payday. The final member of the deal was ‘SergeySil83’ who locked up $7,552.23 for third place, over $1,000 more than the posted third-place finish was supposed to earn. The final event on the schedule was one for the micro-stakes grinders. The $20,000 Gtd Micro Main Event saw 3,502 players (1,725 rebuys) post their $5.50 buy-in in an effort to turn it into a four-figure score. Ukraine’s ‘Testosteron,’ muscled their way to the top, winning $3,661.58 and the last title of the series. ‘brook1101’ from the United Kingdom settled for second place and added $2,744.17 to their bankroll while Brazil’s ‘SabePai’ claimed the bronze and $2,012.29. In addition to the trio of Main Events, there were six other championship events that took place over the weekend. The action included guarantee-beating fields in a series of Deepstack tournaments as well as a day of short-handed play with three 6-Max events. 2020 XL Inferno Champions Event #26: $30,000 Deepstack $55 buy-in 584 entries (219 rebuys) $40,150 prize pool Champion: metelindberg - $7,584.53 Event #27: $20,000 Mini Deepstack $16.50 buy-in 1,375 entries (505 rebuys) $28,200 prize pool Champion: mojitos86 - $4,603.14* Event #28: $15,000 Late Deepstack $33 buy-in 576 entries (206 rebuys) $23,460 prize pool Champion: BehindSpace - $4,434.02 Event #29: $30,000 6-Max $109 buy-in 349 entries (146 rebuys) $49,500 prize pool Champion: skorp1161 - $9,562.67* Event #30: $20,000 Mini 6-Max $16.50 buy-in 1,280 entries (579 rebuys) $27,885 prize pool Champion: aka.plan4ik - $4,561.98 Event #31: $15,000 Late 6-Max $55 buy-in 328 entries (112 rebuys) $22,000 prize pool Champion: LeetRunGoot - $4,620 Event #32: $500,000 Main Event $250 buy-in 1,623 entries (523 rebuys) $504,310 prize pool Champion: junijuniorz - $85,178.75 Event #33: $50,000 Mini Main Event $33 buy-in 1,889 entries (632 rebuys) $75,630 prize pool Champion: LHadar - $10,676.07* Event #34: $20,000 Micro Main Event $5.50 buy-in 3,502 entries (1,725 rebuys) $26,135 prize pool Champion: Testosteron. - $3,661.58
