  1. The first round of the PocketFives #1 Number One contest is complete and while all four #1 seeds had little trouble advancing to the second round, there were five first round upsets which could change the fates of a few of the former #1-ranked players. Hearts Bracket Chris 'moorman1' Moorman advanced to the second round thanks to his first round bye. The higher ranked seed in each of the seven other first round matches in the Hearts bracket also advanced. Chad 'M8kingmoves' Batista, who passed away in 2015, defeated Matt 'ch0ppy' Kay. #2 seed 'C Darwin2' moved past Yevgeniy 'Jovial Gent' Tim
  2. Chris Moorman is easily one of the most - if not the most - decorated players in PocketFives history. He's been the #1-ranked player 13 different times and has held that spot for a combined 23 weeks. He was the first player to break $10 million and $15 million in lifetime earnings. Those accolades, along with his Global Poker Awards PocketFives Legacy Award, afforded the Englishman a first-round bye in the #1 Number One bracket, but the rest of the Hearts bracket presents a formidable challenge if Moorman has any designs on advancing and adding the #1 Number One Championship Belt to his col

  4. The online poker world had a lot going on on Sunday. The PokerStars Sunday Million 13th Anniversary and the final day of both partypoker POWERFEST and 888poker XL Blizzard, but those didn't distract some of online poker's top-ranked players from putting up big results in some of the other Sunday Majors. 2018 PocketFives POY 'Lena900' came through a 150 player-field to win the PokerStars $2,100 Sunday High Roller Cooldown for over $56,000.

  8. Over the past 50 years, for many, the World Series of Poker has grown into more than just a poker series. It’s become a pilgrimage of sorts. Players from all over the world head to Las Vegas to take their shot at battling against the best, bringing home a bracelet and possibly be crowned a World Champion. With the WSOP regularly taking place in the U.S., it’s no surprise that American players, far and away, have amassed the most bracelets in WSOP history. It’s nearly 20 times that of the next nearest country. But this year is different and the tables have turned. After the month of July, th

  15. On Monday, partypoker released a new version of their online poker client that not only puts an end to third-party heads up displays (HUDs) but will delete all previous player notes and forces every user to select a new alias. The policy shift has been made to protect users from having automated data collected on their playing habits as well as attempting to stop the buying and selling of accumulated data for import into a third-party HUD. The changing of the username, which is forced the next time users log in, will essentially reset the playing field with all players getting a fresh start.

  19. Playing through a money bubble can be tough. This is especially true when there are millions upon millions of dollars up for grabs.
