  1. It was another busy Sunday grind for players participating in the 2021 PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker as four more events wrapped up including a trio of massive Progressive Knockouts and one in which former #1-ranked UK pro Patrick ‘pads1161’ Leonard picked up his fourth career SCOOP title. Leonard topped the 324-entry field of Event #57-H ($1,050 NLHE, Freezeout, Afternoon Deep Stack) to not only take home his first title of the 2021 series, his fourth SCOOP victory overall, but also $60,952.82 which he adds to his more than $12.8 million in career online earnings. Leonard
  2. In the same month that Brazil’s Brunno ‘bbotteon’ Botteon captured the worldwide #1 ranking for the first time in his career, he leveraged his first seven-figure score to take home the title of PocketFives Player of the Month for December. Botteon’s outstanding performance in 2020 has been well documented. Continually reaching new career-high cashes throughout the year, Botteon made a name for himself with high-profile appearances in the WSOP Online $25K Poker Players Championship as well as earning a spot in the finals of the WSOP Online $25K Heads-Up Championship. However, in December he
  3. The online poker explosion of 2020 proved to be a boon for PocketFivers, especially those who took advantage of the extensive tournament offerings over on 888poker. The online site spent the better part of the year giving players plenty of reasons to log on and play. From their Early Bird Rakeback promotions to the multiple $500,000 GTD XL Series Main Events, the data shows PocketFivers padded their bankrolls by making deep runs in some of the biggest tournaments the online site offered all year long. In total, the top ten PocketFives tournament players on 888poker earned more than $1 mi
  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. Don’t miss this week’s all-new episode of The FIVES Poker Podcast as Lance and Donnie break down all of the news from a busy week in the world of poker. First up, the guys dive into the latest numbers coming out of the Doug Polk/Daniel Negreanu high-stakes heads-up challenge. Polk still holds a commanding lead while Negreanu has strung together a number of winning sessions - will the challenge end at 12,500 ha
  5. There are a variety of ways to reach the top of the online poker rankings. For some, their ascension is based around a signature score, perhaps outlasting an overwhelming field in a massive marquee event. For others, it’s about the online grind. It’s a day-in, day-out battle against competition (and variance) where players register every tournament in sight and rack up results and PLB points in the process. Whatever path a player takes to succeed in online poker, it’s hardly ever easy. So when big moves in the rankings are made, it’s worth taking a look at who is making them and what they a
  6. Movers & Shakers takes a look into those PocketFives members that have made big moves in the top 100 of the online poker rankings. There is a lot on the line in this week’s Movers & Shakers. For the first time in a long time, Sweden’s ‘lena900’ is faced with a serious threat to his worldwide #1 ranking. Along with a pair of tournament crushers cruising up the ranks of the top 10, some notable names have made double-digit jumps up the rankings, plus a Bulgarian pro broke into the top 100 for the first time. Roman ‘Romeopro’ Romanovsky (#2) and ‘Girafganger7’ (#3) The column is c
  7. Movers & Shakers takes a look into those PocketFives members that have made big moves in the top 100 of the online poker rankings. With partypoker’s POWERFEST and 888poker’s XL Blizzard ongoing and PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker on the horizon, the worldwide rankings are in for a massive shakeup over the next 30 days or so. In fact, they’ve already blown up as Roman ‘Romeopro’ Romanovsky, who was a subject in our last MOVERS & SHAKERS report, finally took over the #1 spot for the first time in his career. This week, we have one of the most dangerous high rollers in t
  8. January was another massive month for Ukranian online poker superstar Roman ‘Romeopro’ Romanovsky who put in maximum volume to finish the month with the 2019 January PLB crown. In 2018, Romanovsky took the months of October and November completely off. Then he put in just a handful of days at the online felt during December. But as 2019 heated up, so did Romanovsky. ‘Romeopro’ turned his attention to his online grind and produced more than 215 cashes in January racking up 4,522.98 PLB points. Of those results, an amazing 14 of them were for five-figure scores. They were headlined by a trio o
  9. Online poker is a global game with players logging on and grinding from every part of the world. Every country has a #1-ranked player and here we take a look at some of those that lead the way in their home countries. ‘hellohellohello’ - Russia For the better part of 2018, Russia’s ‘hellohellohello’ has not only been the #1-ranked player in the country but he has also been a perennial player in the worldwide Top 5. The Russian is currently sitting less than $500 shy of reaching the incredible milestone of $8 million in lifetime earnings and he continues to grind regularly. Even though he has
  10. Movers & Shakers takes a look into those PocketFives members that have made big moves in the top 100 of the online poker rankings. In the aftermath of PokerStars' World Championship of Online Poker, partypoker’s POWERFEST and 888poker’s XL Eclipse, there were some seismic shifts with regards to the PocketFives top 100. These are just a few of the members that have posted incredible results and have made recent major strides in the rankings. Michael ‘mczhang’ Chi Zhang (#2) Although he didn’t end up grabbing the headlines, UK grinder Michael ‘mczhang’ Chi Zhang absolutely crushed ove
  11. After weeks of very little movement in the PocketFives Worldwide Rankings top 10, there has been some shifting of spots with two online grinders climbing their way into career-high rankings. At the top of the rankings remains Sweden’s 'lena900'. While he didn’t manage any PLB qualifying cashes, “lena900” continues to pad his bankroll with a pair of five-figure scores this week. His grind was highlighted by a runner-up finish in 888poker’s July 15 edition of The $50,000 Whale for $14,500. He continues his climb to $12 million in lifetime earnings, nearly surpassing the $11.25 million mark.
  12. In the aftermath of the major spring tournament series, the PocketFives Worldwide Rankings had a new look and, for the first time in 2018, a new #1. This week though, it’s quite the opposite. There were very few major moves in the Worldwide top 10, with the majority of online poker’s elite holding steady in the same rankings they held last week. This includes another week at the top for the current ruler of the rankings, Sweden’s ‘lena900’. After taking a brief break at the beginning of the week, the consummate grinder ‘lena900’ (12,657 PLB points) got back on the grind. While he was not a
  13. A trio of high profile spring online poker series has wreaked havoc on the PocketFives Worldwide Top 10 Rankings. In fact, rankings of nine of the top 10 players shifted this week. The only exception…the number one spot still belongs to ‘C Darwin2'. As PokerStars’ Spring Championship of Online Poker, partypoker’s POWERFEST and 888poker’s XL Inferno provide players some of the largest prize pools of the year, online poker’s elite are on the full-time grind. The results posted by those who end up crushing the competition is enough to help them make major moves in the rankings. That said, curre
  14. 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. Markku Makes $5 Million Mark ‘markovitsus’ Koplimaa, the #78-ranked online player in the world, crossed the major milestone of $5 million in lifetime earnings. A top-40 finish in the PokerStars Sunday 500 brought him $1,103 which was enough to put him in the elite company of those players that are half-way to the $10 million mark. Koplimaa seems to climb the pay scales by playing every and any tournament on the PokerStars schedule
  15. Just like that, Bobby ‘bcm4924’ McLawhorn is back on top. Nevada’s former #1 grinder retakes the Silver State throne after coming off an extended hiatus from the online grind. For months, at the end of 2017 and into 2018, McLawhorn was absent from the Nevada online poker scene, not having recorded a cash since early October. Well, he fired up his WSOP.com client and started crushing tournaments again. One may think “crushing” is hyperbole, but McLawhorn registered 12 cashes from January 14 through the end of the month. He final tabled 11 of them, won 6 of them outright and finished as the ru
  16. The penultimate day of 888poker’s XL Blizzard brought players out in full force to play some short-handed tournaments. Saturday held a trio of 6-Max tournaments with the promise of $75,000 in guarantees. As the online series winds down, these three contests were some of the last chances players had to warm-up and accumulate XL Blizzard Leaderboard points before the massive slate of events that coincide with the $1,000,000 Main Event on Sunday. Event #28 - $50,000 6-Max The top tournament of the day was the $50,000 6-Max which drew 298 players (with 151 rebuys) putting up the $160 buy-in
  17. Apostolis ‘apostolis20’ Bechrakis Hits $5 Million The #1 ranked player in all of Greece, Apostolis 'apostolis20' Bechrakis soared past $5 million in lifetime earnings this week. Bechrakis, who also is ranked #62 in the world (up from #75 last week), took down the PokerStars $530 Bounty Builder High Roller for $19,769 to pass the major milestone. It was all part of a pretty big week for the Grecian grinder in which he cashed in total for over $44,000. Bechrakis has really been doubling down on his volume recently and, incredibly, made the money 22 times on January 21 alone. Guntis ‘lovefee
  18. Make it a month for the #1 ranked player in the world, ‘C Darwin2’. The Swedish superstar continues his vice-like grip atop the PocketFives Worldwide Rankings, holding a 1500 PLB point lead over the next closest player. His continued success presents a gap that would be extremely difficult to bridge in a single week and makes it look like the reigning crusher may very well not only start February in the same spot, but stay put for weeks to come. However, there is a new #2 in the world. Just last week in this column it was pointed out that the 800 point gap between ‘C Darwin2’s countryman,
  19. Day Seven of 888poker’s championship series XL Blizzard is in the books and the action continues with another $60,000 of the $2.9 million overall guaranteed cash up for grabs in a trio of 8-max tournaments. Event #19 - $40,000 8-Max The $109 buy-in $40,000 8-Max was the marquee tournament of the day. With 426 players registering, and contributing 193 rebuys, the posted guarantee was crushed. The prize pool grew to $61,900 ensuring that at least one player on Wednesday was going to walk away with a five-figure score. Malta’s ‘PazzoRJ’ took home the XL Blizzard title and the top prize of
  20. Get inside the mind of Chris 'moorman1' Moorman. As an 888poker ambassador Moorman has played poker on camera a countless number of times. But in this latest video for 888poker and PokerGO, the man with over $16 million in online earnings jumps into the role of the commentator to break down a now-famous hand from Poker Central’s Super High Roller Bowl between two heavyweight poker pros in Daniel Negreanu and Mikita Badziakouski. “I remember watching it at the time, live on the stream, and I was amazed by the end results,” Moorman said. [ptable zone="NJ Online Poker Promos"][ptable zon
  21. It’s another month at the top of the PocketFives United States Online Poker Rankings for New Jersey online poker grinder Yong ‘ykwon17’ Kwon. After taking the first couple of weeks in August off, Kwon soon himself back on the online grind picking up PLB-qualifying scores in bunches. Throughout the second half of the month, Kwon racked up four qualifying scores and nine cashes worth four-figures or more. Kwon’s highlight score was a final table finish in the August 14 edition of the WSOP.com Tuesday Showdown where he picked up $4,810. In total, he amassed of over $27,000 in cashes for the mo
  22. Russian online poker crusher and the current #8-ranked player in the world Arsenii 'josef_shvejk' Karmatckii edged out Swedish superstars ‘DeathbyQuads’ and 'C Darwin2' for the top spot on the PocketFives Monthly LeaderBoard for the month of November. For the better part of two years, Russia’s current #1 player ‘josef_shvejk’ has been grinding his way to the upper echelons of the worldwide rankings and in November, he put those skills to use in order to take down his first PLB title. ‘josef_shvejk’ accumulated five total PLB-qualifying cashes, the largest of which arrived at the end of t
  23. For the first time in his prestigious online career, Sweden’s Johannes ‘Greenstone25’ Korsar took down the PocketFives Monthly Leaderboard, taking the honor for the month of October. The fact that this is the first month that Korsar has earned the PLB title is surprising when taking into account how prolific an online grinder he is. He's been a PocketFiver for four years with nearly 8,400 lifetime cashes. He's in elite company as he sits at #6 on the All-Time Online Money List with over $13.6 million in earnings and he's currently the #4-ranked player in the world. One look at Korsar's p
  24. 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.
  25. Alex Foxen won the PocketFives May PLB title. Yes, that Alex Foxen. The live poker crusher, high-rolling sensation that is also the current (and continuing) record holder as the longest-standing #1-ranked player on the GPI. Foxen (5,103.05 PLB points) has been on an absolute rocketship flight up through the online poker rankings, currently sitting at a career-high mark of #7 in the world. Much of his ability to break into the elite ranks of the top 10 came thanks to his massive month of May. In between lining up bracelet bets for the World Series of Poker, Fox spent most of May, in Canad
