  1. Poker vloggers let their audiences ride shotgun on their journey but keeping up to date on them can be a bit of a challenge. Each week, PocketFives brings you a selection of the very best so you can watch them all in a single session. Marle Cordeiro Wants Five Minutes of Your Time In case you've ever wanted to crack the code on what it takes to win at the low stakes cash game level, Marle Cordeiro has the answer to that question in this week's vlog. She also talks about a recent trip to Austin, Texas for her very first Meet Up Game. Brad Owen Takes on Hollywood Remember that scene in Rounders where Worm goes into a bit of a monologue while subtly asking Mike for a stake? Brad Owen and Andrew Neeme basically lived that out while in Hollywood. Owen and Neeme both bust a tournament at Hollywood Park Casino and Owen was a little short of the buy-in for a $5/$10 cash game. We'll let Owen take it from there. Live at the Bike Doesn't Go So Well for Johnnie Vibes Everybody has a rival. Johnnie Vibes is no different and this week he gets into the growing rivalry he has with Live at the Bike regular Francisco while also providing some analysis on the hands he played during the session. Things don't go well for Johnnie. The ALL IN Poker Vlog Heads to the Wynn For the past seven months, the ALL IN Poker Vlog has been going to different Las Vegas poker rooms to give fans at home a look at how each one is different. In this episode, he heads off to the Wynn Poker Room for the first time. This is definitely a vlog you're going to want to subscribe to if you plan on going to Las Vegas for the World Series of Poker this summer. The Godfather Goes to Reno and Goes Quads vs. Quads Sometimes poker vloggers struggle to get good hands to talk about in their vlogs. Sometimes though, they win with quads over quads on a live-streamed tournament at Run It Up Reno. And of course, that happened to Andrew Neeme this week. To be honest, though, we're not entirely thrilled to see somebody losing with pocket fives here. It's still definitely worth watching.
  2. 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. On this week's episode, Lance and Donnie talk more about the latest numbers out of PokerStars' Sunday Million Experiment™, Maurice Hawkins' dominance of the World Series of Poker Circuit and why WSOP Circuit success doesn't necessarily translate to WSOP success. Lance dubs Run It Up Reno to be the "festival of fun" and talk about not only the poker results (including Loren Klein's crazy run of success there over the last three years) but also how the week-long event should be a model that other poker festivals emulate. Phil Hellmuth once again stirred up a hornet's nest on social media this week. The 15-time WSOP bracelet winner is being roasted by the World Poker Tour later this month in a private event. Hellmuth fans and haters alike both complained that the event should be open to the public and live-streamed. Lance and Donnie discuss not only the history of the annual WPT roast but also why the event has remained private over the years. Lastly, Cat 'Catrific' Valdes is leaving the Thirst Lounge and Lance and Donnie wonder what's next for her and for the Bill Perkins project, the Thirst Lounge.
  3. Everyone has a bad beat story, and no one wants to hear it. This is especially true for John Snyder, the recipient of what just may be one of the worst bad beats of 2019 thus far. Snyder's misfortune came via King of Poker Vlogging, Andrew Neeme at Jason Somerville’s Run It Up Reno festival in Reno, Nevada. The odds of flopping quads is extreme as it is. According to Odds Shark, a player holding a pocket paid will make quads by the river 1 in 122 times. Flopping quads is significantly hards - 1 in 401 times (0.001%). Then you have to really be running bad to lose with those quads as that only happens 1 out of every 100,000 times. The long odds of this happening again aren't lost on Neeme, who is a well-known mid-stakes cash game professional. Soon after he tweeted "10 years of playing live poker and this is the second time I’ve had quads over quads... and both times no jackpot!" Run It Up Reno continues through April 22, culminating in $600 Main Event which gets underway on Friday, April 19.
  4. As 2019 draws to a close, PocketFives takes a look back at the year that was in poker news, going month-by-month through the biggest and most important stories of the year. In April, there was plenty of online poker news, including one player scoring a Sunday Million victory for the second time in eight weeks and operator approvals from Pennsylvania. For Second Time in 8 Weeks, 'Lucky_Jew_17' Wins Sunday Million Most online poker players dream of winning the PokerStars Sunday Million once in their lives, but the vast majority fall short of that goal. Not only did PokerStars player 'Lucky_Jew_17' achieve the highly sought-after feat of winning online poker's most iconic event, but he did it twice in the span of eight weeks. At the beginning of March, 'Lucky_Jew_17' topped a field of 11,525 entries in the PokerStars Sunday Million, taking home a career-best score of $117,222. On April 21, he won the event again with a very similar outcome. The second time around, 'Lucky_Jew_17' bested a field of 11,212 entries to earn $114,039 in first-place prize money. Earning the second Sunday Million title was made even sweeter for 'Lucky_Jew_17' because he had to top one of the top-ranked online poker players in the world to get the win. Finishing in second place was Sweden's 'Lena900.' [ptable zone="Global Poker Article Ad"][ptable zgone="888poker NJ"][ptable zone="GG Poker"] Online Operators Approved in Pennsylvania In more online poker news that grabbed headlines in April, PokerStars and partypoker were among the operators approved for licenses in the state of Pennsylvania. PokerStars had previously linked up with Mount Airy Casino Resort in August 2018 so that it could eventually offer online poker in Pennsylvania, and partypoker's potential partnership comes through Valley Forge Casino, owned by Boyd Gaming. Boyd Gaming has a strategic partnership with GVC, who is the parent company of partypoker. The two global brands weren't the only operators that received approval from the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board, though. Joining PokerStars and partypoker as approved Pennsylvania online poker operators were WSOP/888poker, GAN and Kambi for Parx Casino, IGT, Rush Street, and Sands Bethlehem. Although the word was that legal online poker would be operational in Pennsylvania on July 15, the launch date was pushed back a handful of months. Eventually, PokerStars launched on Monday, November 4, and has been operating since, including recently completing its first run of the PokerStars PACOOP. Five-Way Chop in 13th Anniversary Sunday Million One week before 'Lucky_Jew_17' won his second PokerStars Sunday Million title in eight weeks, the 13th Anniversary Sunday Million took place. The two-day event started on Sunday, April 14, 2019, and attracted an enormous field of 61,342 entries. With a buy-in of $215, a prize pool of $12.268 million was generated, which easily surpassed the tournament's $10 million guarantee. Winning the event was 'wangli0402,' although he actually took home the second most money following a five-way chop. Earning the most money was fifth-place finisher 't4rz4n_21,' who took home $625,073. The other three players involved in the five-way deal were 'xbambi' (2nd - $550,689), 'idzake' (3rd - $509,664), and 'kacer148' (4th - $520,535). Quads Over Quads for Neeme at Run It Up Reno Things were good for Andrew Neeme on April 16, 2019. That's when he held pocket nines and flopped quads against John Snyder. Unfortunately for Snyder, he held pocket fives and flopped a full house. Little did Snyder know, he was drawing dead. If you thought the [poker card="9h"][poker card="9d"][poker card="5s"] was bad for Snyder and his [poker card="5h"][poker card="5c"], things only got worse for him when the turn brought the [poker card="5d"] to give him quads fives. With Neeme holding the [poker card="9c"][poker card="9s"], Snyder was not going to win this hand despite the cartwheels he was doing inside. The result was caught on the Run It Up Reno stream and resulted in one of the most epic bad beats you will ever see. Moorman Honored with PocketFives Legacy Award Another big happening in the poker world in April was the first-ever Global Poker Awards, as the industry got together to celebrate some of the game's best across a wide variety of categories. Among those to take home hardware were Maria Ho for Broadcaster of the Year, Ali Imsirovic for Breakout Player of the Year, and Paul Campbell for Tournament Director of the Year. One of the best moments of the night focused on the presentation of the PocketFives Legacy Award. The award was presented to the one and only Chris Moorman, as an honor for a player who has collected more accolades over the course of his online poker career than any player in the 15-year history of PocketFives.com. Moorman boasts more than $16.2 million in online earnings, 30 PocketFives Triple Crowns, two Yearly PLB titles, and he's been ranked #1 in the world on 13 separate occasions.
  5. Jason Somerville and PokerStars are parting ways. The poker player and content creator extraordinaire announced the news via a video on social media on New Year's Day 2020. "I feel a ton of gratitude towards PokerStars for taking a chance on me and Run It Up," Somerville stated in the video. "I admire many of the hard-working people at the company and I have a lot of love for the many talented ambassadors that are out there creating content on Twitch, YouTube, social media, who are acting as live poker ambassadors building the game that we love. You guys are an inspiration to me. Your friendship means so much, and thank you for the opportunity. I wish you guys well in the future." https://twitter.com/JasonSomerville/status/1212541301414973440?s=20 Somerville went on to mention that although his partnership with PokerStars offered a lot of advantages, it also had its disadvantages because it limited his content to exclusivity with PokerStars. Somerville did not mention specifically what’s coming next for him, but he hinted at more involvement in the emerging sports betting space, where he said he’s been getting more and more involved. A transition to have more of a sports betting focus only seems natural for someone as engaging as Somerville, given the current progressive landscape of legalized sports betting in the US. [ptable zone="Global Poker Article Ad"][ptable zone="888poker"][ptable zone="PokerStars NJ"] Somerville joined Team PokerStars in early 2015. Somerville is considered by many to be the godfather of poker streaming, specifically on Twitch, and he is one of the most recognizable faces in the game. Although his time spent playing poker has lessened over the years, Somerville still has quite the poker résumé. He’s a World Series of Poker gold bracelet winner with more than $3.6 million in live tournament earnings to date. His online results total to more than $2.2 million in tournament winnings. Throughout his career, Somerville has successfully built his own brand, Run It Up, into one of poker’s most premier entertainment and content offerings. Run It Up began as a poker streaming series and has evolved into much more. Under the Run It Up umbrella, Somerville started hosting live events, built an entire team of streamers, opened a 24/7 Twitch channel dedicated to poker, and recently partnered with the NFL to host Thursday Night Football games through RunItUp.tv. Run It Up is also home to the game’s most loyal communities and Somerville will soon host his 10th Run It Up Reno series at the Peppermill Reno in April. Somerville's split with PokerStars comes less than eight months after PokerStars and Daniel Negreanu parted ways. Negreanu recently signed with GGPoker.
