  1. 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. Still trailing the #1 spot by over 1800 PLB points is fellow Swede, and former #1-ranked player, ‘C Darwin2’. He did pick up some valuable points this week when he finished in second place in PokerStars’ June 15 edition of the Hotter $215 for $10,689 and 187.77 PLB points. There’s a new #3-ranked player this week as Russia’s 'hellohellohello' overtook Roman “Romeopro” Romanovsky, who continues to be MIA from the online tables. “hellohellohello” benefitted from the aging PLB scores of Romanovsky, as he was also unable to score any new PLB points, despite making a few appearances online. A new member of the top 5 is Canada’s 'GINS FINEST' who touches #5 for the first time in his career. Like 'hellohellohello' just above him, the Canadian’s one spot jump up is mostly due to a lack of activity from the, now, #6 ranked Andres 'probirs' Nemeth who took the entire week off. Ramiro ‘Ramiro’ Petrone had a healthy schedule this past week, picking up a second place finish in the partypoker Big Bounty Hunter on June 14 for $4,674 and 130.52 PLB points. The top ranking Argentinan is very likely to hit $4 million in lifetime earnings within the next two weeks as he is less than $14,000 shy of the milestone. Sweden’s ‘Ariados’ maintains his #8 rank despite not registering for any tournaments this week. Fabrizio ‘SixthSenSe19’ Gonzalez picks up one spot to land at #9 this week. The UK’s new #1-ranked player, Jonathan ‘proudflop’ Proudfoot is the second player in the top 10 to reach a new career high rank by coming in at #10. In total, Proudfoot made over $26,000 this week over the course of 29 cashes. Proudfoot had been steadily ascending over the course of the past few months and now is only 100 PLB points from taking another step up in the rankings.

  2. He may not be #1 in the world this week, but in the June PLB rankings, super Swede ‘C Darwin2’ found his familiar place in the top spot. And he had some unusual company in the top 10 - an American. ‘C Darwin2’ (3,732.08 June PLB points) put in plenty of volume and, as usual for him, it paid off. Early in the month, he cashed for what would be his largest score of the month by winning the Winamax Mini Las Vegas High Roller for $46,404.27 and 414.57 PLB points. That was just one of eight five-figure scores won during the course of June which, in total, earned ‘C Darwin2’ over $289,000. The former #1-ranked grinder is speeding to the elite plateau of $10 million in lifetime earnings, needing just $220,189 to get there. For most people and players this is the equivalent of many, many years of hard work. For the Swede, if he runs good and puts in his usual volume, he may hit this mark by the end of July. Denmark’s ‘x_zola25’ (2870.25) finished the month in the #2 spot in June. Currently ranked #45 in the world, ‘x_zola25’ topped his month with a runner-up finish in the June 19 edition of the PokerStars $1,050 Super Tuesday for $25,319 and 267.99 PLB points. The Dane, who regularly plays the biggest online buy-ins he can find, managed another five-figure finish when he placed second in the partypoker Sunday Major High Roller for another $20,778/255.52. In total Denmark’s #1-ranked player produced a massive 130 results in June for over $181,000. The June effort helped him climb over the $4 million lifetime earnings mark as he works his way back to the Worldwide Top 25. Speaking of a top 25 grinder, Ukraine’s Worldwide #23-ranked ‘Palyaaa’ (2842.02) landed in the #3 PLB ranking for June. He did it on the back of two large PLB scores. ‘Palyaaa’ first booked the win in the June 14 edition of the partypoker $1K Big Bounty Hunter High Roller for $38,066. Four days later, he repeated the finish in the partypoker Super Sunday 1K Deepstack High Roller for another $27,710. Between the two, the Ukrainian picked up over 761 PLB points. The massive month also helped him reach a career peak Worldwide ranking. The question for ‘Palyaaa’ is can he continue to rise the ranks into the Worldwide top 10? The second Swede in the top 5 of the June PLB leaders is ‘Pot4teUS’ (2,658.55). A former top 10-ranked grinder, currently #25 in the world, ‘Pot4teUS’ soared past the $6 million lifetime earnings mark in June. The bulk of this was thanks to two massive five-figure cashes. The first came on June 10, with his third-place finish in the partypoker KO Series Event #38 for $29,975 and 365.77 PLB points. Then he finished as the runner-up in the $1k Sunday Big Bounty for another $24,218/296.49. In total ‘Pot4teUS’ brought in just under $150,000 in winnings in June in roughly 110 results. Wrapping up the top 5 in June is Argentinian superstar Ramiro ‘Ramiro’ Petrone (2,571.20). Currently ranked #6 in the world, Petrone has been on a heater for the better of a year, continuing to crush both the tournament and online cash games. In June, Petone put in a lighter schedule than he has in recent months but still managed to book big-time scores. On June 3 Petrone kicked off the month with a runner-up finish in the PokerStars Sunday High Roller for $37,249. The same day he had another second place finish in the partypoker Super Sunday 1K Deepstack for another score of just over $30,000. In total, Petrone booked five scores of five-figures en route to a month that brought him over $163,000 in earnings. He heads into July needing only $30,000 to hit $4 million in lifetime earnings. Also of note: It's been roughly seven years since a player located in the United States has been able to crack the top 10 of any given monthly PLB rankings. The restrictions of the UIGEA have made it virtually impossible for US players to put in enough volume in large enough fields to accumulate the necessary PLB points. Players from all over the rest of the world are at a huge advantage being able to play in the largest tournament series and sites that have millions at stake on a weekly basis. This is what makes the accomplishment of David 'bewater' Goodman, from the United States, all the more amazing. WSOP.com's recent shared tri-state liquidity and Goodman's domination in the month of June has not only made him the #1-ranked player in Nevada but also the first US player, still living in the US, to crack the monthly PLB in years. In total, Goodman was able to earn over $121,000 on 31 cashes in the month of June .

  3. It’s yet another week atop the PocketFives Worldwide Rankings for the Swedish sensation ‘lena900’. Not only has ‘lena900’ spent the entire month of July in the #1 position on the rankings, he’s held that spot since the start of the summer. What makes his run at the top even more impressive is the fact that he’s only had three total PLB qualifying scores for the entire month. The Swede had built up such an impressive lead, thanks in part to his strong showing in the previous spring series like partypoker's POWERFEST and PokerStars’ SCOOP, that he was able to coast on some pretty light volume this month and still maintain the #1 rank. ‘lena900’s countryman ‘C Darwin2’ continues to play catch up and trails the #1 rank by over 1750 PLB points. Helping him close the gap though was a third-place finish in the July 22 edition of the PokerStars Bounty Builder High Roller for $17,131 and 223.84 PLB points. Like much of the top 10 this week, Russia’s ‘hellohellohello’ kept his same rank as last week, coming in at #3. However, he did manage to put together a pair of impressive scores this week. The first was a fourth-place finish in the PokerStars $2,100 Sunday High Roller for $18,323 and 183.64 PLB points. Later that day he made another final table, finishing in fifth place in the bwin.com Super Sunday 1K for another $9,744/156.05. There continues to be no sign of #4 ranked ’Romeopro’ on the virtual felts. This leaves an opening for the #5 ranked ‘GINS FINEST’ to make a run at overtaking him. The Canadian currently trails ‘Romeopro’ by just over 213 PLB points. He helped himself this week by logging on for the first time since July 1 and finishing as the runner-up in the July 24 edition of PokerStars Bounty Builder High Roller for $11,430 and 190.64 PLB points. A similar situation is evolving between #6 ranked Andres ‘probirs’ Nemeth and #7 ranked Ramiro ‘Ramiro’ Petrone. Nemeth has seen his PLB points slipping while on a multi-week hiatus from online poker. The #1-ranked Argentinan Petrone one the other hand has continued to grind resulting in a pair of qualifying PLB scores this week. On July 25 Petrone scores a pair of victories. The first was in the PokerStars Big $215 for $5,362/152.32 PLB points and then he took down the $109 NLHE 6-Max, Hyper-Turbo for another $3,603/134.32. Petrone is within striking distance of overtaking Nemeth, trailing him by roughly 200 PLB points. Jonathan ‘proudflop’ Proudfoot has made a new career-high ranking for the second week in a row. Jumping up two spots to #8, the UK grinder had a big week with a pair of five-figure scores. He won the partypoker Tuesday Major for $13,000 and also took down the PokerStars $530 Bounty Builder High Roller for another $10,760. In total, Proudfoot added 478.98 PLB points to his total this week. Fabrizio ‘SixthSenSe19’ Gonzalez held fast at the #9 position. His week was highlighted by a victory in the partypoker Super Sunday Smooth Deepstack for nearly $15,000 and 279.28 PLB points. Finally, wrapping up the top 10 this week is Patrick ‘pleno1’ Leonard. The #10 ranked Leonard posted a pair of monster results on July 22 including a victory in the partypoker Sunday Big Bounty Hunter for $22,999 and 387.30 PLB points. He then backed that up with a final table finish in the 1K Sunday Big Bounty Hunter for another $13,890/194.66. In other top 25 notable moves: Austria’s #1-ranked player ’Dattebayo’ rejoins the top 25, checking in at #21. When someone enters, someone must leave and this week it was Russia’s ‘NoPlanB’, slipping from #25 to #27.

  4. The dog days of summer have hit the PocketFives Worldwide Rankings as nine of the top 10 players remain the same as last week. This includes another week at the top of the rankings for the Swedish powerhouse ‘lena900’. Usually one to put in a good deal of volume, ’lena900’ put in a very light schedule this week only recording 12 results. Impressively, all 12 of his cashes took place on Sunday, July 1. Of these, two were PLB point qualifiers, including his first-place finish in the PokerStars Hotter $109 for $14,245 and 292.06 PLB points. He also booked a second five-figure finish by winning The Whale on 888poker for another $20,000/223.61 PLB points. In total, ‘lena900’ added just over $50,000 to his bankroll in a single day, adding to his over $11 million in lifetime earnings. ‘C Darwin2’, June’s PLB points leader, remains in the Worldwide #2 spot this week. Like his countryman ‘lena900’, the Swede took the bulk of the week off, managing 11 cashes on Sunday, June 11, none of which added to his PLB point total. He currently trails the #1 spot by an intimidating 1909 PLB points, the type of gap he used to enjoy over his fellow competitors when he was ranked #1. Roman ‘Romeopro’ Romanovsky remains on hiatus from the online grind however, his previous efforts helps him remain in the #3 position. The #4-ranked ‘hellohellohello’ is also taking a major break this week. He only recorded a single cash, but it’s a good one. The Russian took first place in the PokerStars $2,100 Sunday High Roller on July 1 for $38,215 and 316.23 PLB points. He sits a mere 41 points behind ‘Romeopro’ in his efforts to return to the top 3. Andres ‘probirs’ Nemeth also retains his rank from last week, checking in at #5. He added 208.63 PLB points to his total with a silver medal finish in the same PokerStars High Roller that ‘hellohellohello’ ended up winning. Nemeth took him 423,498 for his efforts. There were some slight shifts in the bottom half of the top 10 as ‘GINS FINEST’ climbed over Ramiro ‘Ramiro’ Petrone for the #6 spot. The ranking for ‘GINS FINEST’ is a new career-high for the grinder and he did it with a third-place finish in the PokerStars Hotter $215 where he won $7,477 and picked up 141.66 PLB points. Petrone didn’t put up much of a fight this week, taking the entire week off from the online grind. The rest of the top 10 had the same idea as ‘Ariados’ (#8), Michael ‘mchang’ Zhang (#9) and Pedro ‘PaDiLhA SP’ Padilha (#10) all continued to stay away from the online grind.

  5. It took a big week at the online tables by #1-ranked ‘lena900’ in order for him to hold on to his spot in the PocketFives.com Worldwide Rankings again this week. Though the majority of the top 10 remain in the same spots they occupied last week, the online action was plentiful. For ‘lena900’, he turned in a big-time performance on Sunday, August 19 that brought him two victories, over 900 PLB points and over $80,000. The highlight of his week was his victory in the bwin.com Sunday Big Bounty Hunter where he took home over $37,000 of his $80,000. It turns out that 'lena900' needed every PLB point he could muster. What was once a 2000 PLB point lead just weeks ago over fellow Swede 'C Darwin2' has been slimmed down to just over 169. ‘C Darwin2’ is one good week away from recapturing the throne that he held on to for most of 2018. ‘C Darwin2’ celebrated surpassing $10 million in lifetime earning this week. He did it in what may have seemed like a trivial result to the online high roller. He crossed the milestone with a 15th place finish in the August 18 edition of the PokerStars Omania High Roller for $1,647. The was by no means ‘C Darwin2’ best score of the week as he booked three tournament victories this week, two of which for five-figures. This included a win in the PokerStars $215 Monday 6-Max for $17,942 and 318.43 PLB points. On the morning of Monday, August 20, it looked like Russia’s ‘hellohellohello’ was going to finally reach the top spot in the rankings. After all, he had just defeated 5957 runners to win PokerStars’ flagship weekly tournament the $1,000,000 Sunday Million for a career-high cash of $160,888 and 1,091.60 PLB points. Even with his win, the Russian didn’t slow down. He booked two more victories this week as well as two more five-figure scores. In total, ‘hellohellohello’ racked up 1,461.02 PLB points and only sits 489 points behind the #1 spot. He has yet to reach that marker in his career and while he’s sat in the #2 spot once before, he’s never been so close in terms of PLB points. The rest of the top 5 remain the same as Matt ‘GINS FINEST’ Stone retains his #4 spot. Unlike last week, he did fire up the online client this week, however, he was unable to pick up any additional PLB points. Right behind him sits Jonathan ‘proudflop’ Proudfoot, the UK’s #1-ranked player. Like Stone, Proudfoot fired a few tournaments but his results this week didn’t do anything to add to his pursuit of a new career-high ranking. Both #6-ranked Ramiro ‘Ramiro’ Petrone and #7-ranked Andres ‘probirs’ Nemeth continue their vacation from the online grind, perhaps getting ready for the two online super series which begin in under two weeks. It’s another return to the top 10 for former #1-ranked partypoker Ambassador Patrick ‘pleno1’ Leonard. Leonard pulled in some valuable PLB points this week including his runner-up finish in the partypoker Sunday Second Chance High Roller for $9,800 and 156.13. Leonard jumped up three spots this week to land at #8. Will Roman ‘Romeopro’ Romanovsky return for the World Championship of Online Poker? That’s the big question hanging over the world’s #9 ranked player. He hasn’t been seen in online tournaments since May and it’s a testament to his incredible previous scores that he’s maintained a top 10 presence for so long without playing. Wrapping up the top 10 this week is another Swedish sensation as 'Ariados' looks to make another Rankings run. He booked a massive win in the PokerStars Sunday Warm-up for $34,431 and 460.65 PLB points. Other Top 25 notes: With WCOOP right around the corner it’s fitting that the reigning, defending WCOOP Main Event Champion Steven ‘SvZff’ van Zadelhoff returns to the top 25, jumping eight spots to #22. Joining him is Jerry ‘perrymejsen’ Odeen who used a victory in the Hotter $109 on PokerStars to leap back into the top 25, rising 12 spots to end up at #24. If two people enter the top 25, then two must exit and this week that falls to ‘kofi89’ and Chris ‘Big Huni’ Hunichen who both remain right around the top 25 bubble.

  6. There is major movement in the PocketFives Worldwide Top 10 this week as a pair of players that have been steadily rising the ranks have broken new ground resulting in a new look top 5. It seems that the stagnant summer has come to a close with some new challengers gearing up to make a run at #1. But in order to take the crown, they have to get by the Swedish sensation that is ‘lena900’. Even though ‘lena900’ spends another week in the #1-ranking, he has also encountered the problem of not picking up any PLB points. In fact, It’s been over three weeks since he’s accumulated any PLB points causing him to steadily losing ground in that regard. What used to be a 2000 point lead over his countryman, and former #1-ranked player, ‘C Darwin2’ has dwindled to about 1000. That’s still a healthy lead, but it’s one that when the major fall online series fire up (WCOOP, POWERFEST), a lead like that can be eclipsed in short order. ’C Darwin2’, who is ranked #2 again this week, is also in a bit of a PLB point drought not picking up any himself this week either. PLB points haven’t been a problem for Matt ‘GINS FINEST’ Stone who, for the third week in a row, rises in the top 10 to a new career-high ranking. Stone is now in a position to make a run at the Swedish domination of the top two spots. Stone picked up a nice score when he finished as the runner-up in the August 5 edition of the PokerStars Sunday 500 for $22,989 and 270.02 PLB points. That, combined with his third-place finish in the PokerStars Omania High Roller for $8,729 and 136.86 PLB points, allowed Stone to cash for over $33,000 in the week. Even though Stone has been making huge leaps in the rankings all summer, he’s going to need some serious results if he wants to break into the next level. He currently sits roughly 1000 points behind ‘C Darwin2’ and that means almost 2000 behind ‘lena900’. With ‘GINS FINEST’ rising that means that ‘hellohellohello’ had to take a step backward, as he slips to the #4 spot. Even though it was light volume, the Russian did spend some time online and was able to pick up over $12,000 and 178.14 PLB points for his final table finish in the August 5 edition of PokerStars’ Sunday 500. Some aging results took their toll on ‘hellohellohello’s total PLB score as he dropped nearly 400 points from last week, even with his score. He still sits just above 9000 points and trails ‘GINS FINEST’ by 374 points. The top 5 also welcomes Jonathan ‘proudflop’ Proudfoot for the first time. Proudfoot, currently the UK’s #1-ranked player, rises two spots to a career-high ranking. He recorded a silver medal in the Thursday Major on partypoker for $5,453 and 131.62 PLB points. As an additional accolade, Proudfoot managed to capture the July PLB monthly leaderboard. Ramiro ‘Ramiro’ Petrone maintained his #6-ranking, despite not logging on to the online tables this week. Joining Petrone in keeping the lowest of profiles online is #7-ranked Fabrizio ‘SixthSenSe19’ Gonzalez and Andres ‘probirs’ Nemeth, who remains in the #8 spot for another week. The top 10 welcomes back Johannes ‘Greenstone25’ Korsar, who leaps five spots to land at #9. Korsar, yet another player from Sweden in the top 10, had a mammoth week on the online felts. Since August 2 he has amassed over $56,000 in cashes. This includes a final table finish in the PokerStars $2,100 Sunday High Roller for $19,970 and 191.72 PLB points. He also picked up back to back victories on PokerStars. The first in the August 6 edition of the Big $109 for $6,030 and 179.16 PLB points. The very next day he won the Daily 500 for another $14,357. In total, Korsar picked up over 1000 PLB points since August 2 and is now in striking distance of his career high ranking of #6, which he last held in 2016. The inactivity finally caught up to Roman ‘Romeopro’ Romanovsky as he slips five spots to #10 and in all likelihood, fall back outside of the top 10 next week. He hasn’t been seen at the online tournament tables since May 28.

  7. Both PokerStars and partypoker announced their schedules for their massive fall online poker series this week, which means it’s time for the elite online players in the world to get back to the business of grinding. Once again this week, the PocketFives Worldwide Top 10 Rankings looks very similar to the way it has shaped up for the previous month. There have, however, been some minor shifts in position as players attempt to put themselves in good positions prior to WCOOP and POWERFEST. The top spot in the rankings remains the same as ‘lena900’ enjoys yet another week as the world’s #1. If there’s one player who is expected to anticipate the large guarantees of the fall online series it would be ‘lena900’. After all, it was his superior performances in the massive spring series that helped propel him above the current #2-ranked ‘C Darwin2’. For both of these Swedish superstars, this summer has been a quiet one. Both have spent quite a bit of time away from the online scene. For ‘lena900’ it’s the second week in a row that he’s been unable to capture any PLB qualifying scores, watching his PLB total dip below 12,000 for the first time in over a month. ‘C Darwin2’ on the other hand picked up a little ground by taking home over $21,000 and 279.43 PLB points for his runner-up finish in the July 29 edition of the partypoker Sunday Big Bounty Hunter. A player who is likely eager to pick up some ground this fall is Russia’s ‘hellohellohello’. This week he remains in the #3 spot, over 1000 PLB points from reaching the Swedish duo. Although he was unable to pick up any PLB points this week, he did just recently hit a new career milestone of over $7 million in lifetime earnings. Canada’s ’GINS FINEST’ has finally surpassed Roman ‘Romeopro’ Romanovsky to touch the #4 rank for the first time in his career. He was assisted by a final table finish in the July 29 edition of PokerStars Omania High Roller where he picked up over $6,000 and 109.69 PLB points. The Montreal resident continues to climb the ranks of the top 10 and is currently only 214 PLB points away from making a run at the top 3. Romanovsky slips to the #5 ranking, still keeping his distance from playing online. Putting in his grind though is Ramiro ‘Ramiro’ Petrone who jumps up one spot to #6 this week. Petrone booked over $26,000 in cashes this week, highlighted by a victory in the PokerStars Hot $109 for $6,532 and 187.62 PLB points. In total, he earned 439.44 in qualified PLB points. Another player who has not let off the gas is the UK’s #1-ranked player, Jonathan ‘proudflop’ Proutfoot, who checks in at a career-high ranking of #7 this week. He helped himself hit new heights with a fantastic score of $27,938 and 382.75 PLB points in the July 29 edition of the PokerStars Sunday 500. Proudfoot is knocking on the door of over $2.5 million in lifetime cashes, sitting under $60,000 away from the milestone. It’s likely, with his skill and volume, he’ll reach that mark by the end of the fall series. Andres ‘probirs’ Nemeth slips two spots to #8 on no volume while both Fabrizio ‘SixthSenSe19’ Gonzalez and Patrick ‘pleno1’ Leonard keep their same rankings from last week, #9 and #10 respectively. Other Top 25 Notes: While there was some shuffling in the top 25, there were no new additions. The biggest move of the week belongs to Austria's 'Dattebayo' who jumped up eight spots to land at #13. He picked up a pair of five-figure scores on July 29, including a victory in the partypoker Super Sunday High Roller for $40,828 and 380.79 PLB points.

  8. It’s another week at the top of the PocketFives Rankings for Swedish crusher ‘lena900’. The online poker superstar has had the luxury of sitting on a wide PLB point lead for weeks, however, it seems that may be coming to an end. It was yet another week without a substantial PLB score for the Swede and, with some aging results, his total PLB score plummeted over 800 points. This puts him under the 11,000 mark for the first time all summer and well within reach for the #2-ranked ‘C Darwin2’. Despite not picking up PLB points, ‘lena900’ still had a nice week at the online tables booking scores that totaled more than $35,000. This included a victory in the bwin.com $40K Bounty Hunter for $12,651. ‘lena900’s fellow Swede ‘C Darwin2’ one again sits in the #2 spot and now only trails the top spot by roughly 351 PLB points. For ‘C Darwin2’ it wasn’t a matter of climbing the ladder as much as simply holding his position. He did manage a final table finish in the partypoker Sunday Super High Roller to pick up $14,850 however, like his countryman, there were no PLB points earned for the former #1 this week. That cannot be said for Russia’s ‘hellohellohello’ who reclaimed the #3 spot this week. He rose one spot on the back of a victory in the August 16 edition of the PokerStars $1,050 Thursday Thrill where he picked up $27,270 and 378.15 PLB points. In total this week, ‘hellohellohello’ only recorded three cashes, having taken nearly a week off. He currently sits a full 1000 PLB points behind the #2 spot, yet that can all change in an instant one the World Championship Of Online Poker and POWERFEST kick off in early September. Matt ‘GINS FINEST’ Stone takes a small step backward from his career-high ranking of #3 and lands at #4 this week. After putting together a big week last week, it looks as though Stone opted to enjoy a week of summer, staying away from the online grind altogether. Perhaps Stone reached out to a few of his fellow top grinders to pitch the idea of a vacation as he wasn’t the only top-tier pro to go dark this week. Jonathan ‘proudflop’ Proudfoot (#5) and Ramiro ‘Ramiro’ Petrone (#6) both held their respective spots in the top 10 despite continued time away from the tables. It was quite the opposite for Andres ‘probirs’ Nemeth who made his return to the online tournament scene this week. Prior to this week, the last time Nemeth had recorded a score was July 8. His hiatus ended on August 12, as he hopped online and got back in the game. Nemeth played a couple tournaments and picked up some valuable PLB points, 258.54 in total, which helped him climb one spot to #7 this week. He made the final table in two tournaments earning four-figure scores in both. This included a seventh-place finish in the partypoker Sunday Super High Roller for $7,838. Roman ‘Romeopro’ Romanovsky actually rises two spots in the rankings despite still being absent from the online scene. It’s a mix of inactivity and aging scores that lands him at #8. Maintaining his #9 spot is Swedish online legend Johannes ‘Greenstone25’ Korsar. While he wasn’t able to bring in any PLB points this week, Korsar still sits within striking distance of his all-time best ranking of #6, which he touched back in 2016. Korsar is currently approximately 348 PLB points behind the #6 spot as of this week. Finally, wrapping up the top 10 this week is Fabrizio ‘SixthSenSe19’ Gonzalez, who slips three spots joining the pros who opted to take the week off.

  9. 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. Career High Rankings In Top 100 lincownz - #125 to #100 GoFighter - #106 to #95 selouan1991 - #102 to #93 MIL_O_90 - #85 to #78 jason132008 - #69 to #62 Pseudo fruto - #55 to 42 Palsgaard1 - #35 to #33 Palyaaa - #17 to #13 proudflop - #7 to #5 GINS FINEST - #4 to #3
  10. With a month and a half left in the year, Sweden’s 'lena900' (28,117.68) maintains his lead in the PocketFives 2018 PLB race. His last few weeks have been filled with plenty of volume as he widened the gap between himself and 'C Darwin2' (25,993.48). There have been no changes to the top five spots on the leaderboard in the past two weeks. PocketFives 2018 PLB Top 5 as of November 14 1. 'lena900' - 28,117.68 2. 'C Darwin2' - 25,993.48 3. 'hellohellohello' - 23,840.61 4. Roman 'Romeopro' Romanovsky - 21,678.21 5. Ramiro 'Ramiro' Petrone - 20,526.95 Since the last update on October 23, 'lena900' has added nearly 1,000 points to his total. His largest score since was worth $36,628.52 when he won the $1,050 buy-in partypoker Sunday Main Event High Roller on November 4. Other notable recent scores for 'lena900' include a first-place finish in the 888poker Sunday Mega Deep on November 4 for $20,867, a win in the partypoker Bounty Hunter High Roller on November 1 for $10,877.22, a second-place result in the PokerStars $530 Bounty Builder High Roller for $10,069.75, and another second-place finish in the PokerStars Bigger $109 for $15,671.39. Although 'C Darwin2' maintained his second-place standing in the PocketFives 2018 PLB race, he only added 237.17 points to his total. Only two recent scores were worth five figures for 'C Darwin2' and both came on PokerStars - a third-place finish in the High Roller Club: $530 Bounty Builder HR for $10,038.30 and a first-place result in the High Roller Club: Daily 500 for $15,523.81. Russia’s 'hellohellohello' (23,840.61) stays in third place, but he did close the gap a bit between himself and 'C Darwin2.' November has been good to 'hellohellohello' so far, as he’s notched two scores of more than $20,000. The first of the two came in the PokerStars $2,100 Sunday High Roller on November 4 for $20,587.78. The second was a victory in the partypoker BIG Bounty Hunter High Roller for $23,446.15. Rounding out the top five spots in the PocketFives 2018 PLB are two players who are no strangers to the top of this race, Roman 'Romeopro' Romanovsky (21,678.21) and Ramiro 'Ramiro' Petrone (20,526.95). The ground Romanovsky is standing on in fourth place is getting a little shaky, though. He has no recorded results since September 30 and Petrone is grinding hard to try and move up. Then just outside of the top five is Latvia’s 'DamageAP' (20,407.91), just 119.04 points behind Petrone.
  11. Headed into the final months of 2018, the race for the PocketFives 2018 PLB is in the final stretch. Players who have spent the better part of the year inside the top-10 rankings continue to grind out major volume and pack on PLB points in an effort to not only hit huge scores but also finish the year as at the top of the online poker world. The current leader of the pack is Sweden’s ‘lena900’ (27,159.68). The current #1-ranked player in the world took over the top spot in online poker at the end of the major spring online series and has not let go of his lead for the better part of five months. ‘lena900’ has had an amazing year by any standard thus far in 2018 with five six-figure scores. Those five tournaments alone would be enough to put the Swede well over $1 million in earnings for the year. Back in February 2018, he celebrated $9 million in total career earnings, however as of October he has soared past $12.4 million. His highlight score came during the major spring online series. During partypoker’s POWERFEST Event-53-SHR $10K Championship Event ‘lena900’ won the event and earned $430,047 plus 1,414.21 PLB points. It stands as a career-high online score for him and had helped propel him as the frontrunner for the 2018 Yearly PLB award. Not that far behind ‘lena900’ is his fellow countryman, the Swedish sensation ‘C Darwin2’ (25,756.31). Before ‘lena900’ took over as the #1-ranked player in the world, that title was held by ‘C Darwin2’ for the first five months of 2018. Currently ranked #3 worldwide, the Swede has also spent the year skyrocketing up the list of all-time career cashes. He celebrated $8 million in total cashes in February and currently sits with roughly $10.9 million, likely to surpass $11 million before the end of the year. ‘C Darwin2’ recorded his career-high score back on March 20. He took down Event #7 in the PokerStars High Rollers Series ($10,300 NLHE Eight Max) for $267,406 and 1,104.54 PLB points. He recorded another cash by finished as the runner-up in the Main Event of 888poker’s XL Eclipse for $135,000. Russia’s ‘hellohellohello’ (23,147.70) is currently sitting in third place on the Yearly PLB thanks to a scorching hot end of summer run. On August 19, ‘hellohellohello’ added a marquee victory to his resume by winning the PokerStars Sunday Million for a career-high cash of $160,888 and 1,091.60 PLB points.. The cash was one of four six-figure results in 2018 for the Russian, which included back-to-back results of over $100K during the major fall online series. He first found himself fishing in third place in PokerStars WCOOP-62-M ($2,100 NLHE Eight Max High Roller) for $136,573. The very next day he had a bit-time final table finish in partypoker’s POWERFEST-108-SHR for another $114,400. His 2018 journey has led him to rank as high as #2 in the world. He currently sits at #4. Ukrainian pro Roman ‘Romeopro’ Romanovsky (21,678.21) is currently sitting in the #4 spot on the Yearly PLB list. Like others on this list, Romanovsky had himself a career-best score in 2018 during the spring online tournaments. On May 9 during PokerStars SCOOP-14-H ($25,000 NLHE Eight Max High Roller) Romanovsky finished as the runner-up for a massive $442,299 prize. On the same day, he picked up another six-figure cash of $138,525 by taking down SCOOP-16-H ($5,200 NLHE Turbo). Those two results, with the addition of another six-figure score only days earlier, had Romanovsky well over $700,000 for the month of May. After SCOOP, Romanovsky essentially disappeared from the online scene for roughly three months. He made an appearance at the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas, but hardly any results online. When the fall series came back around, so did Romanovsky and he went on to win his fourth six-figure cash of 2018 by taking down the 888poker XL Eclipse Main Event for $187,500. He currently ranks #5 in the world with nearly $10.7 million in lifetime earnings. Rounding out the top five on the Yearly PLB leaderboard is Argentina’s Ramiro ‘Ramiro’ Petrone. Ranked #9 in the world (having reached as high as #3), Petrone had a trio of scores of over $100,000. He picked up both a POWERFEST and a WCOOP title this year however his largest cash came in the Main Event of PokerStars TCOOP when he finished as the runner-up in Event #72 ($1,000 NLHE Twin Turbos Main Event) for $282,436 which, just similarly to everyone on this list, was a career-high cash. Petrone crossed $3 million in total career earnings in the first quarter of 2018. He now sits on nearly $4.5 million.
  12. It was an action-packed Sunday with multiple six-figure scores and some of online poker’s biggest names taking their talents to big-money final tables. 'Wild_Smurf', Ivan 'Negriin' Luca Take Home Six-Figures One of the largest payouts of the day went to Germany’s 'Wild_Smurf’ who took down the PokerStars Sunday Million with an outright win for $140,572.39. The tournament drew 5,202 runners creating a prize pool of $1,040,400 allowing everyone at the final table to earn no less than $11,782. Belgium’s ’francais50’ settled for second place and a healthy $98,647.39. PocketFiver ‘BenjaminChalot' made his way to the final table, laddering to seventh place for $16,790.28. With the score, the Hungarian just eclipses $600,000 in lifetime earnings. Usually, the winner of the Sunday Million is the day’s biggest winner, but this Sunday PokerStars was also running Bounty Builder special editions of some of their High Rollers. This led to Argentina’s Ivan ’Negriin’ Luca combining his winnings for his victory in the $2,100 High Roller SE Bounty Builder #4 for the biggest haul on Sunday. He earned $72,909.23 for the win and another $92,671.87 in bounties or a total of just over $165,580. Finishing right behind Luca was former top-10 ranked player ‘ekziter’. He walked with $55,485.96 (+ $17,281.25 in bounties) for his single largest payday of 2018. A familiar name was atop the leaderboard in the PokerStars Sunday Warm-up as Bryan ‘bparis’ Paris walked away as the winner.
