  1. [caption width="640"] Fabrzio ‘SixthSenSe19’ Gonzalez has been #1 for nearly 11 straight weeks (SHRPO photo)[/caption] It has been 75 days since Fabrizio 'SixthSenSe19' Gonzalez became the #1-ranked online poker player in the world and he doesn’t appear ready to let go of that position any time soon despite a full host of world class players doing their best to take it from him. Gonzalez didn’t put in a lot of volume over the last week, cashing just six times with only one of them being good enough to add to his PLB points total. Gonzalez finished 15th in the $300 buy-in Winning Poker Network Sunday Special for $4,100 and 139.26 points. He now sits 1,033.63 points ahead of his nearest competitor, Bulgaria’s Alex ‘alexd2’ Dimitrov. Dimitrov cashed 25 times this last week but with only one of them counting towards his PLB total, he failed to make up any ground on Gonzalez. Dimitrov’s sole big score came in the PokerStars Super-Sized Sunday where he finished sixth for $8,189 and 157.89 points. He’s now been sitting in the #2 spot for seven straight weeks. The next two spots belong to a pair of Swedish players who have both spent time at #1 in 2016. ‘C Darwin2’ sits third with 8,071.3 points while ‘lena900’ is right behind him with 8,351.54 points. ‘C Darwin2’ moved up from #4 thanks to his win in the partypoker $100,000 Guaranteed Super High Roller on Sunday. ‘C Darwin’ beat out 45 other players to win $42,550 and 339.12 points. He also had an eight place finish in the PokerStars Super Tuesday for $8,256/180.03.Meanwhile, ’lena900’ had just seven ITM finishes this week and none were big enough to add to his PLB total to fall from #3 to #4. Joao Mathias 'joaomathias' Baumgarten rounded out the top five. The sole Brazilian to crack the top 10, Baumgarten had 31 cashes this week, highlighted by the only one big enough to boost his PLB total. Baumgarten took down the 888 poker $50,000 QuarterBack event on December 8, beating 204 other players to win $9,207/223.61. Two players moved up into the top 10 this past week. Johannes 'Greenstone25' Korsar went from #11 to #9 while Ludovic 'ludovi333' Geilich hit #10 - his highest ranking ever. Andreas ‘r4ndomr4gs’ Berggren and Joel ‘jbrown8777’ Brown fell to #11 and #12 respectively.

  2. [caption width="640"] Fabrizio 'SixthSenSe19' Gonzalez has been #1 in the world for seven straight weeks[/caption] There was very little movement in the top 10 of the PocketFives Rankings with Fabrizio 'SixthSenSe19' Gonzalez maintaining his hold on #1 for the seventh straight week. But Gonzalez didn't do it by sitting idly by, he went out and did what he could to hang on to top spot. Gonzalez recorded just seven cashes, but found a runner-up finish in the PokerStars Super Tuesday for $50,523 and 404.55 PLB points. That's the second biggest PLB point score of his career, behind only his runner-up finish in the 2016 PokerStars WCOOP Pot Limit Omaha High Roller event, which earned him 910.96 points. There was no change in the two players directly behind Gonzalez either. Alex 'alexd2' Dimitrov had just one cash big enough to add to his total. Dimitrov cashed 33 times but a win in the PokerStars $215 Bounty Builder added $16,082 to his bankroll and 314.48 points. He's now been #2 for four consecutive weeks and remains the #1-ranked player in Bulgaria. Sitting in third is Brazilian Joao Mathias 'joaomathias' Baumgarten. The former #1-ranked player had three qualifying cashes this past week. His first came on November 15 when he won the partypoker Heavyweight Super Knockout event for $2,137/124.9. That same day he finished runner-up in the partypoker Six Max Turbo High Roller for $7,088/117.09. He rounded out the week with a tenth place finish in the PokerStars $700 Super-Sized Progressive KO for $2,481/113.86. The first change in the top ten came from Sweden's 'lena900' who leapfrogged Andras 'probirs' Nemeth to move up one spot to fourth. 'lena900' moved up without recording a qualifying cash. That's because some of Nemeth's previous qualifying cashes were reduced in value. Nemeth, who jumped back into the rankings last week, may have taken the entire week off. The Hungarian poker pro recorded zero cashes - all one week after he managed three big cashes. The biggest drop in the top ten came from Andreas 'r4ndomr4gs' Berggren. The Swede feel from #7 to #9 as Patrick 'pleno1' Leonard and Johannes 'Greenstone25' Korsar moved up one spot each to #7 and #8 respectively. Canadian Joel 'jbrown8777' Brown held on to the #10 spot.

[caption width="640"] Jonas 'Jownz' Lauck wins the September Points Leaderboard (PokerStars photo/Neil Stoddart[/caption] Germany's Jonas 'Jownz' Lauck squeeked out a win on the September Points Leaderboard over former PocketFives #1-ranked player in the world Nicolas 'PokerKaiser' Fierro and current top dog in the rankings Fabrizio 'SixthSenSe19' Gonzalez. Lauck amassed a huge 4,099.12 leaderboard points with over three-quarters of this total coming with a win in the 2016 PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker Main Event, which earned him $1,101,278.90 and 3,170.63 leaderboard points. To put this into perspective, Bulgaria's Alex 'alexd2' Dimitrov dominated the August Points Leaderboard with 3,016.82 points, or over 100 points less than Lauck notched with one big victory. Outside of the WCOOP Main Event, Lauck's ascension to the top spot on the monthly leaderboard mostly came through a number of small cashes that added up to 927.49 points. His next biggest scores came on September 4 when he took eighth place in the PokerStars Big $109, $125K Guaranteed for $3,206.53 and 138.08 points, followed by a runner-up performance in the PokerStars.fr Night on Stars - €100, €20,000 Guaranteed on September 14 for $4,699.36 and 122.46 points. Lauck now resides in 46th place in the PocketFives Worldwide Rankings, slightly down from his high point of 39th place which came the Wednesday after he won the WCOOP Main Event. His big win also propelled him in a huge way in the rankings as he began the month in 1,019th place and the week before his win was in 734th place. Meanwhile, Chile's Fierro came very close in winning his sixth monthly leaderboard title with 3,989.42 leaderboard points. He previously won the leaderboard in April 2010, September 2014, April 2015, June 2015, and August 2015. Fierro didn't walk away empty handed as his bankroll grew in a big way with a win in the Winning Poker Network OSS #72 - Million Dollar Sunday to haul in $211,060 and 1,028.59 points. Uruguay's Gonzalez finished just behind Fierro in third place on the leaderboard with an impressive 3,948.84 points thanks to a strong month which propelled him to the number one spot in the PocketFives Worldwide Rankings. Gonzalez's huge month was highlighted by six tournament victories including shipping his fourth WCOOP title which came when he took down WCOOP Event #43 - $1,050 Triple Draw 2-7 Championship for $30,981.06 and 379.47 points on Sept. 16. He earned even more points when he shipped the PokerStars Hot $215, $75K Guaranteed on Sept. 11 for $25,620.98 and 388.33 points. Rounding out the top five were a pair of former top ranking online tournament players in the world with Brazil's Joao Mathias 'joaomathias' Baumgarten taking fourth place with 3,838.12 points and United Kingdom's Patrick 'pleno1' Leonard finishing in fifth place with 3,728.90 points. The top 10 in September: Jownz - 4,099.12 PokerKaiser - 3,989.42 SixthSenSe19 - 3,948.84 joaomathias - 3,838.12 pleno1 - 3,728.90 jbrown8777 - 3,514.00 European - 3,485.22 lena900 - 3,223.73 r4ndomr4gs - 3,080.18 C Darwin2 - 3,064.28
  4. [caption width="641"] Fabrizio Gonzalez was the top online poker tournament player in the world in November (SHRPO photo)[/caption] For the last nine weeks Fabrizio ‘SixthSenSe19’ Gonzalez has been the #1-ranked player on PocketFives. His rise to the top spot came mostly from his PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker leaderboard win, but he hasn’t exactly been resting on that success. Nobody had a better November than Gonzalez as the Uruguayan pro topped the November PocketFives Leaderboard, beating out Anton Wigg, Alex Dimitrov and Andreas Beggren in the process. Gonzalez’s top 20 cashes in November (the monthly PLB is based on a player’s top 20 scores) included four wins, two runner-up finishes and 14 final tables. All told he earned $206,667 with nearly a quarter of that coming from a second place finish in the PokerStars Super Tuesday on November 15. In that event Gonzalez outlasted 374 other players before being defeated heads up by Russia’s ‘Stivi Ger’ to walk away with $50,523 and 404.55 PLB points. The next week he posted wins in the $2,600 buy-in partypoker Super High Roller and the $530 partypoker High Roller for a total of $75,265 and 747.49 PLB points. Gonzalez ended up beating out runner-up Anton 'AnteSvante' Wigg by 111.82 points. Wigg’s month was highlighted by his win the PokerStars French Championship of Online Poker. Wigg beat out 664 other players to win the FCOOP Event #26, €200 Six Max NLHE, for $23,221 and 366.34 PLB points. That win was one of six that he had in his top 20 finishes. He also managed two runner ups and a total of 16 final tables on his way to earning $133,030. Finishing just 64.47 points behind Wigg was the current #2-ranked player in the world, Alex 'alexd2' Dimitrov. The Bulgarian put in an incredible amount of volume in November, cashing a total of 165 times - more than double that of Wigg. His top 20 cashes included 11 wins, two runner-up finishes and all but one of them were a final table appearance. The higher volume comes from Dimitrov’s willingness to play almost any MTT running and results in many small scores. Still, he had five five-figure scores, including a $20,607.99 cash for his second place finish to ‘Lena900’ in the partypoker Heavyweight Main Event on November 7.

  5. [caption width="640"] Fabrizio 'SixthSenSe19' Gonzalez added over 1,000 points to his PLB total this week[/caption] Just over 10 days ago one player had a dominating Sunday in the partypoker High Roller and Super High Roller, winning both for just over $75,000. That player, ‘DrMikee’, was relatively unknown, making the feat even more special. It turns out that ‘DrMikee’ is actually the #1-ranked player in the world, Fabrizio ‘SixthSenSe19’ Gonzalez. Gonzalez was playing under the new screenname after his original partypoker account, ‘gotunagi19’, was compromised a week earlier. When the PocketFives Rankings were calculated last week, Gonzalez had yet to add the new screenname to his PocketFives account, so the scores weren’t included. Now they are and all it did for Gonzalez was dramatically increase the distance between himself and the rest of the field. The Super High Roller and High Roller wins were worth 350 and 397.49 PLB points respectively. He also managed to take down the PokerStars Fat Thursday for $14,499/282.84. He know has 9,887.83 PLB points and sits 1,205.72 points ahead of his closest competitor. That player is Alex ‘alexd2’ Dimitrov, who sits second in the rankings for the fifth consecutive week. The Bulgarian pro wracked up 36 total cashes this past week, but it was only the last one that earned him any PLB points. Dimitrov beat out 81 other players to win the $500 buy-in High Roller on the Winning Poker Network. That win earned him $13,125 and 229.13 points. The rest of top 10 this week looks very similar to last week. The only player to drop out of the top 10 was Joel 'jbrown8777' Brown, who ended up #11. The player moving up to take Brown’s spot was Anton 'AnteSvante' Wigg. The former EPT Copenhagen winner won the PokerStars Fat Tuesday for $15,200/282.84 and then finished fourth in the PokerStars PLO Sunday Grand for $14,162/178.41. Wigg brings the number of Swedish players in the top ten to five. ‘lena900’ is the highest ranking member of that group, coming in at #4. Former #1 ‘C Darwin2’ is now sixth, Andreas 'r4ndomr4gs' Berggren is eighth and Johannes 'Greenstone25' Korsar is tenth.

  6. [caption width="640"] Fabrzio ‘SixthSenSe19’ Gonzales is the #1-ranked player in the world for the third straight week.(SHRPO photo)[/caption] For the last three weeks Fabrizio ‘SixthSenS19’ Gonzalez has been sitting pretty atop the PocketFives Rankings and watched as the players below him were unable to mount much of challenge. That’s no longer the case. Gonzalez is still the #1-ranked player in the world, but Alex ‘alexd2’ Dimitrov moved up from #3 to #2 and is closing in on top spot. Dimitrov took down two PokerStars tournaments last Tuesday. The first was the Hot $215 where he walked away with $10285 and 231.95 PLB points. He followed that up immediately with a win in the Six Max $109 NLHE Hyper Turbo for $4,663 and 155.52 points. Two days later he finished as runner-up in the PokerStars Hot $162 for $4,708/119.03. His fourth, and final, qualifying cash of the week came on Sunday when he finished second in the 888poker $50,000 Turbo Mega Deep for $8,780/146.71. The big week moved him into second for the first time in his career. Gonzalez now sits 822.92 points ahead of Dimitrov, but recorded no qualifying cashes during the week. The gap between #2 and #3 isn’t nearly as wide. Joao Mathias 'joaomathias' Baumgarten, who was #2 last week, dropped to #3 but sits just 44.63 points behind Dimitrov. Baumgarten had two partypoker High Roller scores last week that allowed him to keep Dimitrov within striking distance. The first was a third place finish on Thursday in the $50,000 High Roller for $8,323/135.39. On Sunday he managed a seventh place finish in the Super High Roller for $6,638//119.49. Spots #4 and #5 continue to belong to the top-ranked players in Sweden, ‘C Darwin2’ and ‘lena900’. ‘C Darwin2’, who was #1 in late-September, had two five-figure scores this past Sunday. His first came in the Hot $215 on PokerStars. He beat out 503 other players to win $17,942 and 317.49 points. he then finished third in the partypoker High Roller for $6,180/117.39 and then wrapped up his day by winning the partypoker Super High Roller for $47,938 and 384.06 points. His fellow countryman ‘lena900’ booked four wins this past week to allow him to keep pace with the rest of the field. He started the week off with a win in the Winamax High Roller for $7,492/155.92. He then won the partypoker Heavyweight: Uppercut for $9,595/223.61 on Saturday. On Monday he won the PokerStars $215 Six Max Monday for $14,825/286.01 and the Hot $109 for $8,472/218.17. The only other change in the top 10 came from Joannes 'Greenstone25' Korsar who moved up to #9 after swapping spots with Joao 'joaosimaobh' Simao, who now sits at #10. Korsar is the fourth Swedish player in the top 10 while Simao, who signed on as a partypoker Ambassador this week, is the second Brazilian.

  7. [caption width="640"] Fabrzio ‘SixthSenSe19’ Gonzalez saw his lead atop the PocketFives Rankings shrink this week. (SHRPO photo)[/caption] Fabrizio 'SixthSenSe19' Gonzalez has now been the #1-ranked online poker player in the world but in the last week the two players right behind him, Alex ‘alexd2’ Dimitrov and 'C Darwin2', continue to move closer to the top spot. While Gonzalez and Dimitrov continue to hold down the top two spots, both did so without having recorded any scores over the past week that added to their PLB score. Gonzalez finished ITM just nine times while Dimitrov, known for putting in a higher volume than any other player in the top ten, cashed just 12 times with none of them earning more than 62 PLB points. Dimitrov closed the gap without scoring any additional PLB points as some of Gonzalez's older cashes fell off his score. Meanwhile, Sweden's 'C Darwin' however moved closer to Gonzalez thanks to two big scores. The first came on December 18 when he finished 11th in PokerStars Sunday Warm-Up for $3,263 and 148.19 PLB points. That same day he final-tabled the partypoker Six-Max Turbo High Roller for $6,240/117.96. Fellow Swede ‘lena900' maintained the #4 spot despite not recording a single cash all week. Brazilian Joao Mathias 'joaomathias' Baumgarten managed to record 37 cashes, but only one of them earned him enough points to add to his total. Baumgarten won the PokerStars Big $55 on December 14 for $9,734/243.52. Andras 'probirs' Nemeth and Anton 'AnteSvante' Wigg held on to the #6 and #7 spots respectively to leave the top seven spots unchanged from last week. Sweden's Andreas ‘r4ndomr4gs’ Berggren moved up from #11 to #8 based on two wins on December 15. He won the PokerStars.com Hot $33 for $4,294/160.34 and the Thursday Full KO on PokerStars.fr for $5,145/130.95. Johannes 'Greenstone25' Korsar was the only player to fall out of the top ten. Korsar went from #9 to #12.

  8. Another week has gone by and Fabrizio 'SixthSenSe19' Gonzalez continues to find himself as the #1-ranked online poker player in the world, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t contenders out there doing their best to dethrone him. Alex 'alexd2' Dimitrov continues to hold on to the #2 spot, but should he look in his rearview mirror he’ll find two hard charging Swedish grinders who have already had a taste of what it means to be #1. Gonzalez hung on to the top spot despite being unable to record a cash big enough to add to his total. His best finish last week came in the PokerStars PLO Sunday Grand where he finished eighth for $5,636. Dimitrov was nearly in the same boat as Gonzalez. The Bulgarian took down the PokerStars $162 Bounty Builder on November 29 for $4,709 and 145.69 PLB points to get his week off to a roaring start, but failed to have any of his other 41 cashes earn enough PLB points to add to his total. He sits 1,248.51 points behind Gonzalez. While those two were stagnant, ‘lena900’ and ’C Darwin2’ both made moves this week. ‘lena900’ went from #4 to #3 thanks to three big wins. On December 1 he took down both the PokerStars Thursday Full KO and the Winamax High Roller for a total of $13,845 and 312.12 points. That was just setting the table though for his win in the partypoker on Sunday for $24,928 and 394.72 points. Right behind him is ‘C Darwin2’, who came up from #6 to #4 thanks to three big scores, all within a 24 hour period. He started off by taking down the partypoker High Roller on November 27 for $15,797/224.72. That same night he wound up ninth in the partypoker Super High Roller for $5,688/107.87. The next day however saw the former #1-ranked player finish second in the partypoker High Roller for $27,288/283.77. All told he earned $48,773 and added 616.36 PLB points to his total. Canada’s Joel 'jbrown8777' Brown was the only player to move into the top 10 this week. Brown went from #11 to #7 thanks to a win in the $320 Six Max on PokerStars on November 29, a runner-up finish in the partypoker $20,000 Guaranteed Six Max on December 1 and another runner-up finsih, this time in the partypoker Super High Roller on December 4. Those three results earned him $45,756 and 518.18 PLB points. The only player to drop out of the top 10 was another Swede, Johannes ‘Greensteon25’ Korsar. He now sits in eleventh.

  9. [caption width="640"] Fabrizio 'SixthSenSe19' Gonzalez seems pretty comfortable at the top of the PocketFives Rankings[/caption] It might be harder to dislodge Fabrizio 'SixthSenSe19' Gonzalez from the #1 spot in the PocketFives Rankings than anybody imagined. The Uruguayan poker pro held onto the top spot this past week with only two cashes - and only one of them good enough to add to his lead. Gonzalez finished 109th in the PokerStars Mini Sunday Million but that had no impact on his score, but his first place finish in the 888 poker $45,000 Turbo Mega Deep earned him $9,243 and an additional 212.6 PLB points. He now has a 476.68 point lead on his closest competitor, Alex ‘alexd2’ Dimitrov. Dimitrov certainly did his best to try and close the gap this past week. Dimitrov, who is #2 for the third straight week, put in a full schedule of tournaments over the last seven day and found a good score in the PokerStars Sunday Grand, finishing fifth for $17,418/205.38. It was his only qualifying cash of the week. Continuing to hold on to the #3 spot Joao Mathias 'joaomathias' Baumgarten also had just a single cash strong enough to add to his PLB points total. The Brazilian won the PokerStars Big $215 last Wednesday to win $10,913 and earn 239.58 points. While the top three spots remained the same over the last week, the players sitting at #4 and #5 swapped spots. ‘lena900’, who won the October Monthly PLB crown, passed fellow Swede ‘C Darwin2’ on the strength of his win in the partypoker Heavyweight Uppercut for $9,500 and 223.61 and a runner-up finish in the PokerStars Omania High Roller for $7,986/152.03. Banking over 375 points in those two events while ‘C Darwin2’ did not record a single qualifying cash moved ‘lena900’ up to #4 an the #1 spot in Sweden. Swede’s also occupy the #6 and #7 spots. Andreas 'r4ndomr4gs' Berggren maintained his hold on #6 but Johannes 'Greenstone25' Korsar moved from #8 to #7. Berggren won the Winamax Monster Stack for $3,821/118.28 and finished fourth in the Winamax High Roller for $6,332/115.38. Korsar moved up after winning the PokerStars $109 Six Max Hyper Turbo on Sunday and finished sixth in 888 poker $100,000 Baby Whale for $4,616/112.47. Moving from #10 to #9 this week was former #1-ranked Nicolas ‘PokerKaiser’ Fierro. The Chilean poker pro moved up that one spot thanks not to his own work, but the aging scores of those around him. Conor '1_conor_b_1' Beresford fell from #9 to #10 after seeing some of his previous scores count for less. The British pro dropped despite banking $10,936/197.27 in the PokerStars $215 Monday Six Max.

  10. [caption width="640"] Fabricio ‘SixthSenSe19’ Gonzalez's hot streak has propelled to the #1 spot on the PocketFives Rankings (SHRPO photo)[/caption] You could say that things are going well right now for Fabricio ‘SixthSenSe19’ Gonzalez. A little less than three weeks ago he won a World Championship of Online Poker title, his second, after outlasting an elite field in the $1,050 Triple Draw 2-7 Championship. He continued to crush WCOOP, cashing 24 times on his way to winning the WCOOP Leaderboard. Now he’s got another feather he can put in his cap. Number one ranked online poker player in the world. Gonzalez took over the #1 spot this past week, ending the two-week reign of Joao Mathias ‘joaomathias’ Baumgarten, thanks to an impressive performance on Sunday in two of PokerStars’ biggest buy-in events. Gonzalez finished fourth in the $1,050 Sunday Grand No Limit Hold’em to earn $23,872 and 239.6 PLB points. At nearly the exact same time he finished third in the Sunday Grand Pot Limit Omaha event for $24,362/250.32. Those two scores put him past the 9,300 point mark and gave the Uruguayan the #1 spot for the first time in his career. Baumgarten dropped to #2 after posting only one cash big enough to count toward his PLB score. The Brazilian, who has been #1 on two occasions for a total of three weeks, finished 10th in the $2,600 buy-in partypoker Super High Roller on Sunday for 108.77 points. While the top two spots swapped places, Sweden’s ‘C Darwin2’ maintained his hold on the #3 spot even though none of his six cashes this past week earned him enough points to count towards his PLB total. ‘C Darwin2’ was #1-ranked player for 11 straight weeks before Baumgarten passed him two weeks ago. Alex ‘alexd2’ Dimitrov also managed to hang on to his spot. The Bulgarian took down a $500 buy-in event on Black Chip Poker for $2,193 and 106.54 points for his only qualifying cash of the week. ‘lena900’, one of three Swedish players in the top 10, moved up to #5 from #6 this week, swapping positions with Brazilian, and former #1-ranked Joao ‘joaosimaobh’ Simao. Only one player broke into the top 10 this week. ‘European’ moved up from #13 to #10 thanks to an 11th place finish in the PokerStars Super Tuesday for $4,448/136.69. Johannes ‘Greenstone25’ Korsar was the only player to fall out of the top 10. He’s now #11 in the world and #4 in Sweden.

  11. As the 2017 PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker Main Event was playing down to a final table on Monday, there was one name that had a lot of people talking. Belgium's 'girafganger7' was at the final two tables of the High version of the Main Event while also chip leader of Event #1 High ($1,050 NLHE Phase 2). While he didn't win either event, he did enough to move into the #1 spot on the PocketFives Rankings for the first time in his career. He finished runner-up in Event #1 for $745,000 and 1,591.77 PLB points and then bubbled the Main Event High final table for $72,567 and an additional 661.25 points. That wasn't the end of his run though. That same day he won the partypoker High Roller for $22,130/316.23. He now sits atop the rankings with 10,414.06 and has ended the 10-week run of 'lena900'. The next four spots belong to players from Sweden, lead by 'lena900'. He posted four qualifying cashes this past week, three of them from SCOOP and another from partypoker Powerfest. Those four results were worth 671.65 points which allowed to barely hold off #3-ranked 'inhoo', who posted five qualifying cashes of his own for 1,154.98 points. 'Ariados' earned 1,191.7 points this week thanks to five qualifying cashes, the highlight being a 24th place in the SCOOP High Main Event for $46,088/391.06. Former #1 'C Darwin2' did his best to move up the rankings, winning a Powerfest event for $11,408/268.51 and finishing seventh in the SCOOP High Main Event for $178,883/819.05. He also managed a smaller Powerfest cash for $7,120/181.85. Two players moved back into the top 10 this week. Andras 'probirs' Nemeth moved from #11 to #7 and another Swede, 'Sheater' went from #15 to #10. Andreas 'r4ndomr4gs' Berggren and Patrick 'pleno1' Leonard both dropped out of the top 10.

  12. After staring up at Fabrizio 'SixthSenSe19' Gonzalez for the past four weeks, Sweden's 'lena900' has taken over the #1 spot in thePocketFives Rankings - but just barely. 'Lena900' posted two cashes this past week that were big enough to add to his PLB score and move him past Gonzalez. He won a $530 buy-in partypoker Six Max High Roller for $9,488 and 156.52 points. He followed that up on Sunday with a fourth-place finish in the PokerStars NLHE Sunday Grand for $21,887 and 229.91 points. The combined 386.43 points moved 'lena900' past Gonzalez by just 71.48 points. Gonzalez didn't exactly go quietly into the night. Despite playing a limited schedule, Gonzalez managed to emerge with a win in the $530 buy-in partypoker Six Max High Roller on March 12. He earned $11,787 and added 247.99 points to his total, but it was the only cash big enough to earn him points. Sitting in third is another Swede and former #1-ranked player, 'C Darwin2'. He also posted a solid week with two cashes, a third place finish in a partypoker High Roller for $10,712/163.58 and a runner-up finish in the PokerStars Hot $162 for $8,828/170.65. While 'C Darwin2' was unable to move up this week, there's certainly no danger of him being caught by anybody below him. The difference between him and #1-ranked 'lena900' is just 444.03 points, but the difference between 'C Darwin2' and #4-ranked 'Ariados' is a massive 1,789.27 points. The group of Swedes dominating the top 10 of the PocketFives Rankings did not change at all this week. 'Ariados' sits fourth, 'inhoo' is fifth and Andreas 'r4ndomr4gs' Berggren sits sixth for yet another week. Alexandr 'Blackk' Trofimov moved up to #7 from #8 after he earned 524.2 points from four qualifying cashes this week. This represents and all-time high ranking for the Russian grinder. Two former #1-ranked players found their way back into the top 10 this week. Britain's Patrick 'pleno1' Leonard moved from #11 to #8 while Chile's Nicolas 'PokerKaiser' Fierro ended up at #10. Germany's 'pappdogg' and Russia's 'veeea' both dropped out of the top 10, falling to #11 and #12 respectively.

  13. [caption width="640"] Fabrizio 'SixthSenSe19' Gonzalez remains the #1 ranked online poker player in the world for the 12th consecutive week.[/caption] Even the best online poker players in the world took some time this past week to enjoy the holiday season and spend some time with family and friends rather than grinding away. That lead to a week with no changes at all in the top ten of the PocketFives Rankings with Fabrizio 'SixthSenSe19' Gonzalez sitting on top for the 12th straight week. Gonzalez cashed only seven times with none of them being big enough to earn him any additional PLB points. That allowed Alex 'alexd2' Dimitrov to close the gap to just 265.21 points. Two of the Bulgarian's 43 cashes last week were big enough to add to his PLB total. On December 26 he beat out 514 players to win the PokerStars $109 Six Max Hyper Turbo for $9,459 and 231.22 points. he followed that up with a fifth place finish in the PokerStars Hot $215 for $5,641/129.34. Dimitrov has been #2 for nine consecutive weeks. Former #1-ranked 'C Darwin2' sits third and also finds himself within striking distance of Gonzalez. The Swedish pro took down the partypoker Six Max Turbo High Roller on December 22 for $8,400/144.91. He's now just 518.01 points behind Gonzalez and 265.21 points behind Dimitrov. The rest of the top eight remained unchanged with Sweden's 'lena900' and Brazil's Joao Mathias 'joaomathias' Baumgarten rounding out the top five. Patrick 'pleno1' Leonard moved up from #10 to #9 thanks to three final table finishes. The first came on December 22 when he finished runner-up to Chris 'imdanuts' Oliver in the $1,050 Thursday Thrill for $31,026 and 319.49 points. On Christmas Day he finished runner-up in the PokerStars Sunday Supersonic for $18,077/268.19 and then fifth in the 888 poker $50,000 WHALE for $4,475/101.34. The biggest mover though was former #1Conor '1_conor_b_1' Beresford. The British pro jumped from #16 to #10 after he won the PokerStars Sunday Warm-Up for $43,217 and 527.07 points - his highest points score ever.

  14. [caption width="640"] Fabrizio 'SixthSenSe19' Gonzalez held off a charging 'lena900' to stay ranked #1 in the world this week[/caption] Fabrizio 'SixthSenSe19' Gonzalez regained the #1 spot in the PocketFives Rankings last week and then went about making sure he did everything in his power to stay there this week. Gonzalez had two scores big enough this week to add to his PLB total, including the second biggest PLB Points grab of his career. Gonzalez finished second in the 888poker Super XL Series High Roller for $62,930 and 420.38 points, second only to the 683.22 he earned for finishing runner-up in the PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker PLO High Roller last September. On Sunday, Gonzalez finished 12th in the PokerStars Turbo Championship of Online Poker High Roller for $17,534 and 287.09 points. Those two scores were enough to hold off the competition for at least another week and leaves Gonzalez 280.05 points ahead of #2-ranked 'lena900'. When 'lena900' woke up Wednesday morning, he may have expected to see his name at number one. After posting an astonishing five qualifying cashes this past week, the former #1-ranked player might have thought he had locked up top spot for a third time. Last Wednesday he finished eighth in the 888poker Super XL High Roller for $12,180 and 182.98 points and then won the partypoker Powerfest High Roller for $15,640/223.61 points. He then won a TCOOP event for $27,440/438.77, a PokerStars Big $109 for $12,166/267.58 and rounded out the week with a runner-up finish in the Winamax High Roller for $9,715/162.65. In total he added 1,275.59 points to his PLB total, but couldn't close the gap as a number of early 2016 cashes fell off of his total. The rest of the top five remains unchanged with 'C Darwin2' in third, Alex 'alexd2' Dimitrov in fourth and Anton 'AnteSvante' Wigg in fifth.Andreas 'r4ndomr4gs' Berggren andAndras 'probirs' Nemeth swapped spots with Berggren dropping to seventh and Nemeth moving up to sixth. The single biggest mover of the week though is Czech resident 'pappadogg', who rose all the way up from 25th to eighth after an incredible week that saw him add 1,325.39 to his total as well as over $100,000 in winnings. 'pappadogg' started the week off by finishing on top of the partypoker PowerFest High Roller for $55,485 and 547.73 PLB points - his highest single score ever. He then finished runner-up in a PokerStars Hot $109 for $8,976/178.01, 11th in the 888poker Super XL Series High Roller for $7,105/151.16, first in the PokerStars.fr Sunday Six Max for $8,276/206.81 and then runner-up in the PokerStars Hot $215 for $16,897/241.69. His previous high was #23. Conor '1_conor_b_1' Beresford dropped from #8 to #9 while Patrick 'pleno1' Leonard moved up to #10 from #12. Dropping out of the top 10 were Nicolas 'PokerKaiser' Fierro and Roman 'romeopro' Romanovsky.

  15. In a day filled with big tournaments and big winners, the big headline coming out of the 888poker Super XL series on Sunday was 'mindcrushers' crushing another Super XL event and became the first two-time winner of the series. Mindcrushers topped the Event #21 $75 Super Turbo Tune Up Event just days removed from a win in Event #1. In addition to another $4,096 in prize money and the title, mindcrusher now moves to second in theleaderboard contest behind 'PuntSonPunt'. PuntSonPunt followed up two final tables on Saturday with a third appearance Sunday, taking fifth place in the same event mindcrushers won. As a result, PuntSonPunt remains the player to beat in the contest with 671 points. Keep an eye on 'eze88888' too, as they final tabled both Event #13 and Event #18 over the course of the day's action. Once again, all tournaments met the guarantee. The biggest prizepool of the day belonged to the $160 buy-in “Tune Up” event, which guaranteed $250,000 and ended up with a $316,200 prizepool. The heads-up battle between 'ForSjovt' and 'SalsaFiesta' was a lengthy one with numerous lead changes. In the end, ForSjovt prevailed to take home almost $54,000. The $600 buy-in “Whale” event also generated a substantial prizepool of $221,480. The recurring Sunday tournament on the 888poker schedule got a bump in the guarantee for the Super XL series. ‘Wes.c.addle’ captured the title after winning the Whale last April for over $41,000. He bested that score with a $42,502.01 payday this time around, besting a final table that included Fabrizio ‘DrMiKee’ Gonzalez, who finished in fourth place. The finish keeps him in the leaderboard contest too, where he currently sits in fourth place. Gonzalez was not the only notable Pocket Fiver to make a final table Sunday. Matthew 'theginger45' Hunt final tabled Event #12, taking fifth place. That final table was the only one that ended with any sort of deal. The final two players agreed to a chop that resulted in 'Jefffryyy' earning the win, but 'L-Scola' finishing second for a little more money. Other winners for the day include 'ADRMI_ATM' (Event #13), 'VLADIMIRIKOC' (Event #15), 'scratchero' (Event #16), 'gonzAAr' (Event #18), '_zufurduo_' (Event #19), and 'Bak0s' (Event #20). Monday brings six more tournaments on the Super XL schedule and a little change of pace on the games front. The action kicks off with a 7:00 p.m. $109 Omaha tournament and a $12 Mini Omaha Tournament. At 7:35 p.m. GMT two $22 no-limit hold’em events start concurrently. Then, at 8 p.m. GMT, the $15,000 guaranteed $55 buy-in Snap event and $5,000 guaranteed $5 buy-in Mini Snap start, culminating a very busy hour for 888poker Super XL players.

  16. [caption width="640"] Fabrizio 'SixthSenSe19' Gonzalez continues to fight it out with 'lena900' atop the PocketFives Rankings (PokerStars photo/Neil Stoddart)[/caption] For the fourth time in five weeks there has been a change at the top of the PocketFives Rankings but while change seems to be the constant at the top, it's just two players going toe-to-toe. Fabrizio 'SixthSenSe19' Gonzalez pushed past 'lena900' to retake the #1 spot thanks to a runner-up finish in the partypoker Powerfest Super High Roller that resulted in the second largest score, both in terms of cash and PLB points, in his career. Gonzalez outlasted 209 of the 210 other players in the $5,200 buy-in event to win $163,525 and 677.65. The only time he's earned more in either category came in September 2016 when he finished runner up in the PokerStars World Championship Pot Limit Omaha High Roller for $355,731 and 683.22 points. Gonzalez also had a win in the partypoker $530 High Roller event on February 7 to win $11,049 and 201.25 points. Those two scores pushed Gonzalez's PLB points total over 10,000 for the first time ever. While Gonzalez had a week that saw him add 878.9 points to his total, Sweden's 'lena900' added 305 points to his total from two wins. He started the week off with a win in the partypoker Six Max Turbo High Roller for $8,800 and 148.32 points. On Sunday he took down the PokerStars Six Max €20,000 guaranteed for $6,383 and 156.68 points. He now trails Gonzalez by 535.55 points. As has been the case for most of the past two years, Swedish players continue to dominate the top 10 spots. Right behind 'lena900' at #3 is fellow Swede 'C Darwin2' who had a week that included his three largest PLB scores ever. His week started with a third place finish in the Powerfest Super High Roller for $123,963 and 531.32 points. He followed that up with a win in the pokerStars Thursday Thrill for $45,206/504.98 and then took down the PokerStars Sunday Warm-Up for $56,056 and 609.92 points. He trails 'lena900' by just 196.23 points and is 731.78 points out of first. While the top three players all remain relatively close in terms of points, the gap between that group and the rest of the top 10 continues to grow. Alex 'alexd2' Dimitrov held on to the #4 spot with only one qualifying cash. Dimitrov won the Black Chip Poker BIG10 for $3,649 and 137.68 points and now finds himself 1,855.74 points behind 'C Darwin2' and 2,587.52 points behind Gonzalez. While the names in the top four spots didn't change, there was considerable movement in the rest of the group. Nicolas 'PokerKaiser' Fierro moved from #9 to #5 thanks to a win in the Big €100 on PokerStars.fr and a runner-up finish in the PokerStars Sunday Warm-Up that garnered him 535.19 points. 'Pappadogg' continued his ascension, moving from #7 to #6, Andras 'probirs' Nemeth dropped from #5 to #7, 'inhoo' moved from #10 to #8 and Andreas 'r4ndomr4gs' Berggren fell from #6 to #10. The biggest jump of the week though belonged to the fifth and final Swede in the top 10. 'Ariados' put together four qualifying cashes this past week, including the largest PLB score of his career. 'Ariados' won the partypoker Powerfest Super High Roller for $226,825 and a whopping 1,027.13 points. He also won a PokerStars.fr €100 Nightly for 147.62 points, finished 16th in the PokerStars Sunday Warm-Up for 115.56 points and then topped the Winamax High Roller on Sunday for $16,701 and 261.27 points. Dropping out of the top 10 this week was Anton 'AnteSvante' Wigg, who fell all the way to #17.

  17. [caption width="640"] Despite spending all week at the PokerStars Championship Bahamas, Fabrizio ‘SixthSenSe19’ Gonzalez held on to the top spot.(PokerStars photo)[/caption] It’s been 14 weeks since somebody other than Fabrizio ‘SixthSenSe19’ Gonzalez has held down the #1 spot in the PocketFives Worldwide Rankings. Gonzalez held on to the top spot this week despite the fact he played a full schedule at the PokerStars Championship Bahamas. Despite just five cashes - and none big enough to add to his PLB score - Gonzalez still held off challenges from ‘C Darwin2’ and Alex ‘alexd2’ Dimitrov. ‘C Darwin2’, one of four Swedish players in the top 10, started the week off in the right way with a win in the PokerStars Hot $162 for $7,062 and 191.31 points. Despite 14 more cashes during the week however, he was unable to find another result good enough to add to his total. Dimitrov also had a slow week - one of his slowest in recent memory. The Bulgarian grinder, known for playing a higher volume than others in the top 10, cashed just seven times and not a single one helped him close the gap on ‘C Darwin2’ or Gonzalez. The next Swede in the rankings, ‘lena900’, had 34 in-the-money finishes but only one, where he took fourth place in the partypoker High Roller on January 4, was good enough to add to his points total. He walked away from that event with $8,147 in cash and 141.72 points. The top five is rounded out by the #1 player out of Brazil, Joao Mathias 'joaomathias' Baumgarten. The former #1-ranked Baumgarten had 35 cashes this past week and just like other above him in the standings, only one was good enough to count toward his total. Finishing sixth in the partypoker Heavyweight on January 8, Baumgarten won $6,875 and added 120.66 points. The only player to move into the top 10 this week was Conor '1_conor_b_1' Beresford. The UK-grinder moved up to #10 from #11, swapping places with Cristian ‘progre69’ Sampaoli, thanks to a win in the PokerStars $55 Six Max Progressive KO event on January 9. He added $2,066 to his bankroll but also an additional 107.59 PLB points to his total. He’s now 53.46 ahead of Sampaoli.

  18. The PocketFives Rankings have long been a playground for Swedish players. Just last week 'lena900' moved back into the top spot for the fifth time in his career and now there's six Swedes in the top 10 with another two knocking on the door. Sitting on top certainly seems to serve 'lena900' well. On June 6 he took down a partypoker High Roller for $20,422 and 322.49 PLB points. While it was a big score, it was the only one big enough to add to his total this week. He now sits 353.1 points ahead of the rest of the field - including the the three Swedes directly behind him. Staying at #2 despite no PLB points earned this past week was 'inhoo'. There's just 78.35 points between him and 'C Darwin2' who moved from #4 to #3 this week. The former #1-ranked player had four big scores this week inlcuding a win in the partypoker Heavyweight Title Fight Warm Up for $20,427/358.33 and a partypoker High Roller win for $13,059/237.7. He also finished seventh in the partypoker Heavyweight Title Fight for $4,700/155.56 and runner-up in the 888poker Volcano for $10,085/160.69. 'Ariados' fell from #3 to #4 despite a runner-up finish in the Winamax Highroller for $13,663/171.88 and a fourth-place finish in the partypoker High Roller on June 6 for $8,043 adn 140.37. There was no change in spots 5 - 9 but Johannes 'Greenstone25' Korsar jumped from #14 to #10 thanks to his win in the partypoker Super High Roller for $52,437 and 421.31 points. Korsar is the sixth Swede in the top 10 but there may be more soon. 'Sheater' is sitting at #11, just 14.78 points behind Korsar while 'DeathbyQuads' is at #15.

  19. As has been the case for the better of 2017, the top three in the PocketFives Rankings continues to be a combination of 'lena900', Fabrizio 'SixthSenSe19' Gonzalez and 'C Darwin2'. This week, Sweden's 'lena900' held on to the #1 spot for the fifth consecutive week. Despite cashing a total of 41 times, only one of those was big enough to add to 'lena900's PLB score. Finishing fifth in the PokerStars PLO Sunday Grand added $9,627 to his bankroll and 148.92 points to his score. 'Lena900' now leads the rest of the field by 697.06 points. Gonzalez had two big scores this week, and in each case narrowly missed out on an opportunity to put up even bigger results and move closer to regaining the #1 ranking. Last Sunday he finished third in the partypoker $2,600 Super High Roller for $25,932 and 228.43 points. Two days later he finished runner-up in a partypoker $530 High Roller for $8,501 and 147.53. Had he won those two events he would have scored an additional 289.24 points. The player who edged Gonzalez out in the partypoker High Roller was none other than #3-ranked 'C Darwin2'. Beating out Gonzalez earned him $11,557 and 223.61 points. That win was one of three huge scores for the Swede this week. On Sunday he finished third in the partypoker Heavyweight Title Fight Warm Up for $12,061 and 194.51 points and won the partypoker $530 High Roller for $8,954 and 200 points. He's now just 231,36 points behind Gonzalez. Another Swede, 'inhoo', stayed the course this week, holding on to the #4 spot, but there's a new name (of sorts) at #5. German 'girafganger7' re-entered the rankings this week, showing up at #5 after a week that included five cashes big enough to earn points. Last Saturday the German pro won the partypoker High Roller Turbo for $7,506/141.42 and the PokerStars Big $215 for $8,991/215.87. He followed that up on Sunday with a 12th place finish in the PokerStars Super-Sized Sunday for $2,446/108.24. He also finished runner-up in the PokerStars Big $109 on Monday for $7,907/165.33 and won the PokerStars $320 NLHE on Tuesday for $5,830/146.97. Those five scores allowed him to edge out former #5-ranked Nicolas 'PokerKaiser' Fierro by just 1.11 point. The rest of the top 10 remained largely unchanged from last week. Fierro moved to #6, 'Ariados' now sits at #7, Conor '1_conor_b_1' Beresford to #8, 'pappadogg' to #9 and Patrick 'pleno1' Leonard stayed at #10. Dropping out of the top 10 this week was Sweden's Andreas 'r5ndomr4gs' Berggren who went from #8 to #11.

  20. [caption width="640"] Fabrizio 'SixthSenSe19' Gonzalez continues to lead the PocketFives Worldwide Rankings but has a group of Swedes behind him[/caption] For the fourth consecutive week Fabrizio ‘SixthSenSe19’ Gonzalez remained as the world’s #1-ranked online poker player, but there’s five different players from Sweden attempting to chase him down. Gonzalez has 154.38 PLB point lead over his next closest competitor despite not having posted a qualifying cash in over a month. Gonzalez managed just four cashes this past week, and none were big enough to add to his PLB total. The last time he had a result strong enough to count was February 7 when he won the partypoker High Roller. ‘Lena900’ wasn’t able to take full advantage of Gonzalez’s slow week though, grabbing just one score big enough to add to his total. The former #1-ranked player beat out 187 other players to win the PokerStars Big $162 on March 5 for $5,606 and 167.93 points. ‘C Darwin2’ maintained his hold on the #3 spot but also failed to make up any ground on Gonzalez. Despite cashing 16 times last week, none were good enough to add to his points total. He finished the week 303.08 points behind ‘lena900’ and 457.46 behind Gonzalez. While the top three remained unchanged this week, one player moved up three spots and into the top five for the first time since 2016. ‘Ariados’ continued his hot play as of late with a win in the partypoker $2,600 buy-in Super High Roller and a fourth place finish in the partypoker $530 buy-in High Roller on Sunday. Those two cashes added $65,376 to his bankroll and 598.01 PLB points to his total to move him from #7 to #4. Two more players re-entered the top ten this week. Russia’s Alexandr 'Blackk' Trofimov went from #11 to #8 on the heels of three qualifying cashes that earned him a total of 345.53 points. His biggest score came in a PokerStars $109 Six Max Hyper Turbo for $4,532 and 151.81 points. Another Russian player, ‘veeea’ went from #13 to #9 after finishing third in a partypoker High Roller for $7,191/124.04 and runner up win another partypoker Six Max High Roller for $11,366/178.26. Nicolas ‘PokerKaiser’ Fierro, who surpassed $10,000,000 in lifetime earnings this week, dropped from #8 to #12.

  21. [caption width="640"] Seems like 'lena900' and Fabrizio 'SixthSenSe19' Gonzalez are going to battle back and forth for the #1 ranking.[/caption] It seems like there's a heavyweight fight going on between two of the world's best online poker players and at stake is the #1 ranking on PocketFives. Sweden's 'lena900' and Uruguay's Fabrizio 'SixthSenSe19' Gonzalez have swapped the #1 spot yet again with 'lena900' sitting on top after another strong week that included two big wins. There's no bigger day in the online poker tournament scene than Sunday, and this past Sunday saw 'lena900' shine bright. He started the day off win a win in the PokerStars Big $109. Not only did he added $25,449 to his bankroll, but he picked up 410.12 PLB points in the process - his sixth biggest PLB score of all time. But that was just the appetizer. He rounded out the day by winning the PokerStars Sunday Grand for $58,319 and 556.78 points - the single biggest PLB score of his career. Just over four weeks he collected 539.26 points for winning the partypoker Title Fight: Heavyweight. He now leads Gonzalez by 278.96 points. For his part, Gonzalez didn't exactly go quietly into the night. He too had a big Sunday, winning partypoker Powerfest Event #209 for $17,284 and 316.23 points. He then finished third in another Powerfest tournament, Event #222, for $9,676 and 151.7 points. His run ended at just two weeks but Gonzalez has been #1 16 of the last 19 weeks. While the top two players continue to duke it out for the top ranking, they're leaving the rest of the field in the dust. There is a 1,487.70 point difference between 'lena900' and #3-ranked 'C Darwin2' - a fellow Swede. 'C Darwin2' stayed at #3 this week after h had just one cash big enough to count toward his total, finishing runner-up in the PokerStars Hot $215 on Sunday for $14,073 and 218.42 points. Alex 'alexd2' Dimitrov stayed at #4 but there was movement right below him. Anton 'AnteSvante' Wigg, who was #5 last week, fell all the way to #8 as Andras 'probirs' Nemeth,Andreas 'r4ndomr4gs' Berggren and 'pappadogg' all moved up one spot in the rankings. Just 716.46 points separates #5 from #10. Two players moved into the top ten this week. Nicolas 'PokerKaiser' Fierro moved from #13 to #9 and 'inhoo' became the fifth Swedish player to crack the top ten when he moved from #15 to #10. Falling out of the top 10 were a pair of British pros. Patrick 'pleno1' Leonard fell from #10 to #13 and Conor '1_conor_b_1' Beresford dropped from #9 to #14.

  22. For yet another week, ‘C Darwin2’ is on top of the online poker world and the PocketFives Worldwide Rankings. ‘C Darwin 2’ had a busy couple days that included a third place finish in the partypoker $20,000 guaranteed High Roller on August 1 that earned him $6,440 and 117.39 PLB points. Checking in at #2 is ‘lena900’ who had another great performance across all of the world’s sites. ‘lena900’ won the Crocodile on 888poker for $4,163 and 129,03 points along with a win in the PokerStars Sunday Grand for $24,349 and a whopping point total of 244.82. Neck-and-neck for third and fourth place are ‘Ariados’and ‘inhoo.’ ‘Ariados’ continued their consistent run as of late and picked up a few cashes on 888poker and partypoker. ‘Inhoo’ won the partypoker $50,000 guaranteed High Roller on July 31 for just shy of $10,000. There is a sizable drop off to the next tier of the top-10 and that’s where we find Andreas ‘r4ndomr4gs’ Berggren, who had two strong third place finishes in PokerStars. Berggren earned a combined $24,000 for his bronze medal performances in the Big 109 and $1,050 Thursday Thrill. The player who made the largest jump in the past week is Conor ‘1_conor_b_1’ Beresford. Last week, Beresford was #12, but is now up to #6 thanks, in part, to a win second place finish in the Big 215 $75,000 guaranteed on PokerStars. Climbing from #9 to #7 is ‘Sheater,’ who earned 391.15 PLB points for shipping the partypoker $150,000 High Roller on July 30. The only player to fall out of the top-10 was Andras ‘probirs’ Nemeth.

  23. In late May, Belgium's 'girafganger7' quietly removed his screennames from his PocketFives account and in the process gave up his control of the #1 spot on the PocketFives Rankings, allowing the Swedish players to eventually take over the top five spots. He's back this week though and has retaken the #1 spot and left six Swedish players in the top 10 looking up at him. 'Girafganger7' had three big scores this week that added to his PLB points total. He won a PokerStars $109 Six Max Hyper Turbo for $3,872 and 139.33 points, a PokerStars Big $215 for $9,184/218.17 and then finished runner-up in the PokerStars Fat Thursday for $10,923/188.92. His 10,768.36 total points puts him 1,459.04 ahead of the #2 player in the world, 'lena900'. 'Lena900', who has held the #1 spot five different times in his career, is currently in Las Vegas for the World Series of Poker and hasn't posted a single online cash since June 8. 'C Darwin2' sits #3 after adding to his PLB total with a runner-up finish in the PokerStars PLO Sunday Grand for $15,645/194.60. 'Inhoo', at #4, is also in Las Vegas and has not recorded a single online cash since June 18. Same storyline for #5-ranked 'Ariados' with no cashes since June 6. Andreas 'r4ndomr4gs' Berggren has yet to join his fellow countrymen in Sin City though. He put up three cashes big enough to add to his PLB score. He won the partypoker High Roller on for $11,817/200, finished sixth in the PokerStars Super Tuesday for $12,811/186.93 and then took down the partypoker Heavyweight Weigh-in for $3,833/130. He's now got a 189.11 cushion between himself and #7-ranked Fabrizio 'SixthSenSe19' Gonzalez. The only player in the top 10 this week that wasn't there last week was another Swede, Johannes 'Greenstone25' Korsar. Korsar moved up one spot from #11 to #10. Conor '1_conor_b_1' Beresford and 'Sheater' were the two players to drop out of the 10 this week, falling to #11 and #12 respecitvely.

  24. Brazil's Henrique Bastos Coutinho came through a 5,490 player field to bank $148,292 and become this week's PokerStars Sunday Million champion. Playing under the alias 'Galochina10' he was able to beat 'it.happ3ns.' into second-place for $104,064, with 'mrAndreeew' taking away $73,028 in third-place. The win for Coutinho meant he smashed his previous best recorded online cash of $10,244 by some margin. 'sousinha23' came through a tough PokerStars $2,100 Sunday High Roller final table that included the top two ranked players in the world Lena900 and C.Darwin2 to bank $45,028. 'Lena900' followed by '€urop€an', Michael 'mczhang' Zhang, 'Bigfish112392', 'C.Darwin2' and 'roo_400' exited the tournament before 'probirs' took $25,825 in third. 'sousinha23' was then able to get the better of 'cigarromata' heads-up to take the title with the latter taking $34,100 in second. This week's PokerStars $530 Bounty Builder High Roller winner was former world #1 ranked 'p0cket00' after they eliminated 'Karssen1987' heads-up. 'p0cket00', who has over $11m in online earnings, won $32,536.83 + $28,122.96 (in bounties) with runner-up 'Karssen1987' banking $23,848.97 + $5,515.62 (in bounties). Sweden's Johannes 'Greenstone25' Korsar took away $17,481 + $2,687.50 (in bounties) in third-place. 'mraink' came through a 1,066 player field in the PokerStars $215 Sunday Warm-Up and sent Jonas Palsgård Christensen to the rail during heads-up play to secure a $34,593 payday. Christensen took away $24,872 for his efforts and 'fers223' won $17,883 in third. Also, a shoutout must go to 'Bagelakis23' who was able to achieve sixth-place finishes in both the Sunday Million and the Sunday Warm-Up. 'Malapisk' was able to secure two titles across the partypoker Sunday Majors for a combined total prize of $53,894. Firstly, 'Malapisk' and John Adderley agreed to a heads-up deal in the $1,050 Deepstack-HR to bank $36,694 and $33,685 respectively. There were a total of 198 entries, and after 'FoldDigger' fell in third-place for $21,100 the final two made the money deal before 'Malapisk' took down the win, and John Adderley achieved his highest online cash to date. And their second win of the day came in the $109 Sunday Major for $17,200. 'LeadRush' was the player to fall at the hands of 'Malapisk' this time around during heads-up and took away $12,320 for second-place. Elsewhere on partypoker, there was a field of 39 players in the $2,500 Super Sunday High Roller as 'mwhldwn', AKA RaiseYourEdge head coach 'Bencb', beat partypoker ambassador Patrick Leonard to take the win for $40,500. Leonard's prize for second-place was $26,500 with current PocketFives world #2 'HellmuthTheGr8' taking the bronze medal for $16,500. 'Demba_Pa' took the majority share of the $150,000 prize pool in the $530 Sunday Major after they came through the 293 player field for the victory. Paul 'Sheld0nC00per' Allen exited in third-place for $15,230 before 'x_zola25' took $20,778 in second-place and 'Demba_Pa' was awarded with $28,545 for the win. There was also a second final table appearance of the day for Patrick Leonard after he took fifth-place for $8,183. Over on 888poker, Fabrizio 'DrMikee' Gonzalez achieved gold and bronze medals in the flagship 'Sunday Mega Deep' and 'Whale' tournaments. Ivan ‘hurrrrican3’ Gabrieli took down the $1,050 The $100,000 Whale for $24,596 after agreeing to a heads-up deal with Alessandro 'ZeroNineee' Valli. Gabrieli, who took the silver medal in last week's 888poker Sunday Mega Deep, went this distance this time around as Valli banked $17,387 as runner-up and Gonzalez claimed $10,950 in third place.

  25. The 2019 World Series of Poker Main Event went from 1,286 players down to 354 on Tuesday Those left are deep in the money and guaranteed $34,845, and it’s Dean Morrone holding the chip lead entering Day 5. Former NFL star Richard Seymour was one of the big stacks to advance. Morrone Leads the Way Morrone is a Canadian player and a qualifier from 888poker. He’s making his first career WSOP cash with his run in this year’s WSOP Main Event and it’s also his largest live tournament score to date as he entered the tournament with just $10,138 in live earnings. Morrone entered Day 4 with 365,000 before he went on to finish with 4.98 million and the lead. Other big stacks in the group behind Morrone on the leaderboard were Lars Bonding (4.04 million), Michael Messick (3.925 million), Warwick Mirzikinian (3.9 million), and Henrik Hecklen (3.862 million) to round out the top five. Morrone’s fellow 888poker qualifier Mihai Manole finished the day with a very healthy 3.781 million. Top 10 Chip Counts Dean Morrone - 4,980,000 Lars Bonding - 4,040,000 Michael Messick - 3,925,000 Warwick Mirzikinian - 3,900,000 Henrik Hecklen - 3,862,000 Mihai Manole - 3,781,000 Robert Heidorn - 3,700,000 Sean Mills - 3,692,000 Christopher Wynkoop - 3,563,000 Andrew Brokos - 3,518,000 Former NFL Star Richard Seymour On the Rush Former NFL star and three-time Super Bowl champion Richard Seymour was among those to advance to Day 5. He spoke with The Fives Poker Podcast at the end of Day 3 about his sixth time playing the WSOP Main Event being a charm and things only got sweeter on Tuesday. Seymour came into the day with 275,000 and quickly got his stack up to 400,000. It wasn’t long before he reached 1 million in chips and then the progression only continued after he was moved to one of the secondary features tables. Seymour bagged up 2.75 million in chips, but he wasn’t the only former NFL player to move on. Eric Stocz, who spent time in the NFL with the Detroit Lions, reached the money in the WSOP Main Event for the second time in his poker career. He’s already outperformed the 402nd-place finish he netted in 2011 that earned him $30,974 and will only be looking for more. Stocz bagged 350,000 for Day 5. Former PocketFives #1 Players Performing Well A handful of former PocketFives #1 players are performing well and have advanced to Day 4 of the 2019 WSOP Main Event. Fabrizio Gonzalez bagged 2.916 million, Chris Hunichen finished with 2.617 million, and Yuri Dzivielevski ended with 1.79 million. Hunichen bagged those chips despite losing one of the biggest pots of the tournament so far. He got involved in a big one with David Guay and Guay flopped a set of tens against Hunichen’s pocket kings. The hand resulted in a full double for Guay and took a dent of about 1.2 million out of Hunichen’s stack. Eight from Pennsylvania Still Alive Pennsylvania online poker has been legalized and the launch date is coming up soon. When sites do go live there will be a handful of players with some extra money to deposit thanks to deep runs in this WSOP Main Event. Eight players from Pennsylvania remain, with Thomas Parkes of Alburtis finishing Day 4 with the most chips at 3.172 million. Pittsburgh’s Chad Power is next with 2.78 million, and then it’s Matthew Sabia (1.81 million), Kenneth Smaron (1.806 million), Edward Pham (1.43 million), Jake Schindler (1.168 million), Donald Dombach (799,000), and Matt Glantz (690,000). Yoon, Esfandiari, Cheong Among Bracelet Winners Remaining In addition to all the names that have been mentioned, Brian Yoon (2.622 million), Antonio Esfandiari (2.583 million), Craig McCorkell (2.5 million), Chris Wallace (1.98 million), and Joseph Cheong (1.958 million) represent some of the WSOP gold bracelet winners still in the field. Yoon and Esfandiari are both three-time gold bracelet winners who have had some deep runs in the WSOP Main Event before. Yoon has finished in the top 60 on three separate occasions (2018, 2016, and 2011), and Esfandiari finished 24th in 2009. McCorkell took 13th in 2014, and Wallace finished 32nd in 2017. We also know very much about Cheong’s third-place finish behind Jonathan Duhamel and John Racener in 2010 that earned him $4.13 million. All Former Main Event Champs Gone Of course, not every player could advance. Three former WSOP Main Event champions began the day, with Johnny Chan, Chris Moneymaker, and Qui Nguyen still in the field, but all three of them busted out on Day 4. Moneymaker finished 687th for $20,200, Chan took 560th for $24,560, and Nguyen went out 455th for $30,780. Nguyen’s bust came when he got the last of his chips in with pocket fives only to lose out to an opponent’s two sixes. With no former WSOP Main Event champions in the field, we will see a brand new winner in 2019. Others to bust on Day 4 were Ricky Guan (362nd - $34,845), Scott Lazar (388th - $34,845), Jean-Robert Bellande (415th - $30,780), Bryan Campanello (435th - $30,780), Josh Arieh (485th - $27,390), Adam Owen (570th - $24,560), and Cliff Josephy (759th - $20,200). Day 5 of the 2019 WSOP Main Event starts at 12 pm PT on Wednesday, July 10 at the Rio All-Suites Hotel & Casino.
