  1. Throughout the course of the summer, the moves to the online poker’s rankings were subtle. Players took longer breaks, went on vacation or spent time grinding the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas. All of that changed when the PokerStars 2018 World Championship of Online Poker began. The players flocked to the online tournament scene, generating a total prize pool of nearly $100 million, and got busy earning life-changing amounts of money. When the tournament swings can be big, so can the shifts in the PocketFives rankings. Some of the performances of top PocketFivers during WCOOP resulted in a lot of movement in the rankings. Back Into The Top 100 There were 16 players who, over the course of WCOOP’s two weeks, worked their way from outside the top 100 to sitting inside of it. Steve ‘MrTimCaum’ O’ Dwyer (+262, #33) Steve 'MrTimCaum' O’Dwyer, the regular high-roller with live earnings approaching $24 million, absolutely crushed the online scene during September. Playing out of his adopted home of Ireland, O’ Dwyer picked up his first WCOOP title in Event-57-H ($2,100 No Limit Hold’em Eight Max) for a massive $227,101 score and 1,154.99 PLB points. He also broke a career-high cash with his $896,610 victory during partypoker’s POWERFEST. O’Dwyer’s rankings shot up 262 places to #33 in the world, which is, surprisingly, a career-best for one of the most consistent crushers in the world. Sergio ‘zcedrick’ Aido (#30) Another easily recognizable name making major moves in the rankings was Sergio ‘zcedrick’ Aido. Originally from Spain, but playing out of the UK, Aido flew past $4 million in lifetime earnings with his September online play. Coming off a four-month online poker hiatus, Aido continually racked up the PLB points with 16 qualifying tournaments. He picked up two six-figure scores in September with his standout being his final table finish in WCOOP Event-62-H ($25,000 No Limit Hold’em High Roller) for $156,224. Aldo returned to his online account ranked number #209 and by rising 179 spots, made it the furthest into the top 100, landing at #30, a career-best. ‘simon1471’ (+697, #76) Hailing from the UK, ‘simon1471’ made the largest leap from outside the top 100 to earning a spot inside of it. Since the start of September, ‘simon1471’ has accumulated 20 PLB qualifying cashes highlighted by a WCOOP victory in Event-37-H ($1,050 No Limit Hold’em Turbo) for $98,678 and 747.66 PLB points. In total, he rocketed 697 spots from #776 to a career-high ranking of #76. His stellar series makes him the #10-ranked grinder in the UK and he has now accumulated over $1.785 million in career earnings. Major Movers There were a number of players who made massive jumps in the rankings during WCOOP either due to a major score or simply due to increased online activity. Chance ‘Chances Cards’ Kornuth (+9,285) U.S. based Chance ‘Chances Cards’ Kornuth, is a well-known live tournament beast with over $5.9 million in live earnings. This WCOOP, he once again proved he can make moves both live and online. His string of WCOOP cashes is nothing less than impressive. He registered 31 PLB qualifying cashes in a row on PokerStars in September raising his ranking from #9752 to #476. How was Kornuth ranked close to 10,000? He essentially took an entire year off from the worldwide player pool between WCOOP’s. That's not to say he wasn't playing online as he did win the WSOP.com $3,200 High Roller Online Bracelet event. The question is will Kornuth disappear from the world online scene for another year now that WCOOP is over? Shaun ’shaundeeb’ Deeb (+1766) Another American superstar, Shaun ‘shaundeeb’ Deeb found success grinding WCOOP outside of his home country. Deeb booked two wins during the series. The first was in WCOOP Event-22-H ($1,050 PLO8 Eight Max) for over $38,000. Then he backed that up with his second victory in Event-59-H ($2,100 PLO8 Six Max) for another $69,011. In total, the former #1-ranked player earned over $176,000 for the series and shot up 1,766 places to his current rank of #284. Deeb now has over $6.7 million in career online earnings to go with his $6 million in live earnings. Big Names On The Rise Some of the biggest names in poker found themselves on the list of top rankings risers. Joseph ‘subiime’ Cheong (+903) Former WSOP final table participant and guy with zero interest in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Joseph ‘subiime’ Cheong put together 25 PLB qualifying cashes to rise 903 spots, back into the top 500 at #436. A former top-20 ranked player, Cheong, like many Americans, hadn’t played in the worldwide player pool since last May’s SCOOP. Sami ‘LarsLuzak’ Kelopuro One of Finland’s most well-known online nosebleed grinders, Sami ‘LarsLuzak’ Kelopuro, may not be mixing it up with Tom Dwan and Phil Ivey in 'Rail Heaven' anymore but he did have himself a profitable WCOOP. He finished runner-up in Event-54-H ($10,300 8-Game High Roller) for $150,000. He also made a final table appearance in Event-16-H ($25,000 PLO Six Max) for $135,274. Kelopuro cashed for five-figures of better 8-times during the series and shot up 149 spots to his current ranking of #36 in the world, another career-high.
  2. The month of September was a big one for online poker as both PokerStars’ World Championship of Online Poker and partypoker’s POWERFEST brought out the biggest names in the game to compete for the largest prize pools of the year. Here are a few of the biggest PocketFives headlines in the month of September. WCOOP and POWERFEST Take Center Stage There’s no doubt about it, when the biggest online poker sites in the world offer massive guarantees, poker players from all over the world stop what they are doing to log on and grind. That is exactly what happened in September as both PokerStars and partypoker presented their hefty fall super series schedules. Marquee players like Chris ‘moorman1’ Moorman, Shaun Deeb, Steve ‘MrTimCaum’ O’ Dwyer and ‘girafgander7’ all picked up titles over the course of the series. Here’s a look back at some September’s biggest results. READ: WCOOP - ‘wann2play’ Wins High Main Event, $1.35M READ: POWERFEST - Steve O’ Dwyer Wins $25K Super High Roller for $896K READ: WCOOP - Shaun Deeb Picks Up Another Victory On Son’s Birthday READ: POWERFEST - Chris ‘moorman1’ Moorman Victorious In Six Max PKO Take a look back on all of PocketFives' WCOOP and POWERFEST content. Huge WCOOP Paydays Propel Players To New Rankings Heights After a pair of huge online series, there is bound to be titanic shifts in the online rankings. Major amounts of PLB points are there for the taking and players who may only log on to play in the biggest events are sent soaring up the charts due to big-time wins. PokerStars tournaments alone generated a prize pool of close to $100 million and so when players won, they often won big. So we took a closer look at which players were the biggest beneficiaries of their grind. The list includes Steve O’ Dwyer, Sergio ‘zcedrick’ Aido, Chance ‘Chances Cards’ Kornuth and Joseph ‘subiime’ Cheong. READ: Huge WCOOP Paydays Propel Players To New Rankings Heights Denis ‘aDrENalin710’ Strebkov Does It Again When PokerStars expanded their WCOOP schedule to include three different levels of tournaments (High/Medium/Low), as they had traditionally done during SCOOP, it gave players a chance at racking up multiple WCOOP titles. No one took more advantage of that then Russia’s Denis ‘aDreNAalin710’ Strebkov. Strebkov went on a WCOOP heater, racking up wins and becoming one of the biggest stories of the entire series. At one point he sat atop multiple WCOOP leaderboards and was in contention for the Low, Medium, High and Overall all at the same time. On this day, Strebkov took down his fourth title en route his record-breaking run. READ: WCOOP - Denis ‘aDrENalin710’ Strebkov Leads The Way With Fourth Win Phil Galfond’s Online Poker Site Gets Closer To Launch “We’re getting to the point now where, while there are still a lot of known bugs and we’re working on them, they’re fewer and further between.” - Phil Galfond discussing Run It Once Poker in September. There was a point when Phil Galfond’s Run It Once online poker site had a September target date for launch. While they were unable to make that mark, Galfond did come out with a major update and include some of the first video of actual gameplay of the future site. At the same time, he expanded the beta program (which is currently still in full swing) after positive feedback from those who have been playing on the closed site. READ: Phil Galfond Shows Off Run It Once Software In Latest Update Jonathan ‘proudflop’ Proudfoot Rises To #1 In The UK In September PocketFives had the opportunity to touch base with 2018 UK breakout star Jonathan ‘proudflop’ Proudfoot to take about his amazing results and rise in the rankings. The 28-year old professional talks about coming up in the online scene, building up a bankroll, going broke and turning into a ‘bad reg.’ After finding inspiration from Parker ‘tonkaaaa’ Talbot online, Proudfoot gathered himself and rededicated his focus to his online game. This led him to an incredible victory in the 888poker XL Inferno Main Event for a career-high cash of over $209,000. Since that time Proudfoot continues to compete at the highest level, staying in the top 10 worldwide conversation. READ: From ‘Bad Reg’ to #1 in the UK - Johnny ‘proudflop’ Proudfoot Michael ‘mczhang’ Chi Zhang Claims September Monthly PLB Award Absent from the headlines above is the tremendous run that the UK’s Michael ‘mczhang’ Chi Zhang went on during September. Zhang picked up 17 PLB qualifying scores and as impressive as that is, it doesn’t even begin to tell the story of his month. Zhang put together six five-figure scores before he set a new personal best cash of $265,995 in WCOOP-43-H ($25,000 No Limit Hold’em High Roller). He was just getting started. Four days later, he broke that record in WCOOP-58-H ($5,200 No Limit Hold’em Main Event) where he took fifth for a new career-high cash of $382.252. He then went on to nearly break that record with a fourth-place finish in WCOOP-62-H ($25,000 No Limit Hold’em High Roller) for $336,740. Then he, for the third time in the month, set a new career high cash with his third-place finish in the partypoker POWERFEST #122-SHR ($3M Championship Event) for $468,000 on September 21. It was an amazing month for Zhang allowing him to take time away from the online tables as he hasn’t logged an online result since September 24.
  3. Roman 'SanityWaterline' Romanovsky kicked off the GGPoker GGSeries 2 in the perfect way by taking down the Event #12: $400k Gtd $10,000 Super HR for $173,790. The world-ranked #5 defeated Men's GPI #1 Alex 'FkTheseGuysBro' Foxen heads-up after 42 entrants created a $407,400 prize pool. Foxen took away $102,684 for his efforts, with 'LaurisL91' taking the bronze medal for $64,634. Austria's #1 'onehundredeyes' won over $190,000 after victory in the partypoker $5,200 KO Series #02-SHR: $1m GTD Championship Event. 176 entrants took part which meant the tournament fell short of its $1,000,000 guaranteed prize pool, and when the final table had been reached, newly-signed partypoker pro Jeff Gross was first to exit for $15,907 + $7,393 in bounties. 'Maddonaa' took fourth place for $48,010 + $17,996 before world-ranked #1 'Drulitoo' aka 'Lena900' hit the rail in third for $67,098 + $56,306. 'R0meluLukaku' then fell at the final hurdle and sacrificed their bounty, departing with $91,917 + $26,142, as 'onehundredeyes' picked up the bumper payday and the title. partypoker pro Patrick Leonard made an appearence at the final table of the partypoker $1,050 KO Series #02-HR taking fourth place for $19,648 + $9,026. The 571 player-field created a $582,420 prize pool, and after Leonard's departure, fellow Brit Ben 'DamianLillard' Jones was next to exit for $28,388 + $6,686. Austria's 'RuckZuckMuck' then won the final bounty battle to bank $41,683 + $47,754, after 'Eltri3' hit the rail as runner-up for $41,626.37 + $16,652. World-ranked #2 Andras 'probirs' Nemeth chopped the PokerStars $1,050 High Roller Club Sunday Supersonic before going on to take the title. The prize pool was set at $230,600 after 227 entrants took to the virtual felt, and when the field had been reduced to just three, Roman 'RomeOpro' Romanovsky exited to collect the bronze medal worth $24,629. Nemeth and 'mikki696' then agreed to a money-deal, before Nemeth won the heads-up battle for $38,523, with 'mikki696' banking the bigger share worth $39,162, despite their second-place finish. Steve 'Mr. Tim Caum' O'Dwyer took his live poker form to the online streets and won the PokerStars $2,100 High Roller Club Sunday Cooldown for over $79,000. Ireland's #1 O'Dwyer defeated Columbia #1 'pampa27' heads-up to claim the final bounty prize, with the latter awarded $24,620 + $7,906 as runner-up. 'kartt' added t $19,124 + $5,562 to their bankroll in third place, with Kristen 'krissyb24' Bicknell taking fourth place for $14,855 + $3,250.

  4. In the sixth instalment of the 2020 World Series of Poker online Asia time zone events, Luis 'Xapilskinha' Assuncao Garla overcame 3,247 total entries and 426 other players on Day 2 to win Event #55 HK$8,000 NLHE Asia Championship. Garla secured his first career bracelet to take home $461,709.47. There were eight different countries across four continents represented at the final table of Event #55 (HK$8,000 NLHE Asia Championship). Brazilian Luis 'Xapilskinha' Assuncao Garla came into the table with a gargantuan 40,674,090 stack with American Alan 'TheCockroach' Schein second in chips with 22,737,151. It took almost two hours of poker prior to the first elimination of the final table. Ignacio 'Curandero' Moron, who was the short stack, raised to 2,178,853 with 350,000 still behind and was called by Schein in the hijack. The players then got it all in on the [poker card="7s"][poker card="3c"][poker card="2c"] flop, the turn brought in the [poker card="Td"] and the [poker card="4d"] completed the board. Moron turned over [poker card="Ac"][poker card="Js"] but Schein showed [poker card="Ah"][poker card="Th"] for the turned two pair ending Moron's tournament journey. It took another 16 minutes for the next final table bustout. Vadas 'Vladiator13' Tamasauskas, who finished fifth in WSOP #Event 52, moved all in preflop with [poker card="Ac"][poker card="Ks"] from early position and was called by the [poker card="Th"][poker card="Td"] held by runaway chip leader Garla. It was a classic race but the at risk Tamasauskas finished in eighth for $43,180 as he failed to connect with the [poker card="Qd"][poker card="Qh"][poker card="9h"][poker card="5d"][poker card="2s"] runout. Immediately following the break, in unusual fashion, the two big stacks in Garla and Schein got involved in a big pot against each other. Schein raised to 1.4 million from the cutoff and Garla defended his big blind to see the [poker card="Qs"][poker card="7c"][poker card="2h"] flop. Garla checked to the preflop aggressor who fired a continuation bet of 1.82 million, the Brazilian called. Garla then fired a 5.39 million bet on the [poker card="9c"] turn, which Schein called. Garla continued to apply pressure with a bet of 10.78 million on the [poker card="6c"] river, Schein snap-called with [poker card="Kd"][[poker card="Qh"] for top pair but was behind the turned two pair as Garla showed [poker card="9d"][poker card="7s"]. The Brazilian held a commanding chip lead with a stack of just shy of 95 million, over 70 million more than second place Schein. As the short stacks kept surviving, it took another 15 minutes for the next tournament casualty. Alexandros 'THE Sheriff' Theologis open-jammed with [poker card="8s"][poker card="8d"] and was snap called by the shorter stack Eduards 'lIlIlIlIillI' Kudrjavcevs who had a bigger pair in [poker card="Ts"][poker card="Tc"]. Theologis delivered a fatal blow to the Latvian, flopping a full house on the [poker card="8h"][poker card="2h"][poker card="2s"] flop. A ten didn't appear on the [poker card="5s"] turn and [poker card="3h"] river and Kudrjavcevs was eliminated. Things started to pick up as the blinds grew as the next elimination came immediately. Divanshu 'd0rk21' Khurana shoved all in for 5,816,672 and his compatriot, Kunal 'Alex_52' Bhatia, called off in the big blind. Khurana: [poker card="Ac"][poker card="8d"] Bhatia: [poker card="Kh"][poker card="9h"] Bhatia, the runner up in WSOP Event #52, connected on the [poker card="Kd"][poker card="5d"][poker card="4d"] flop. With an over-card and a flush draw, Khurana still had a chance of survival but neither came as the [poker card="Qs"] and [poker card="3c"] river brought the game to five-handed play. Garla claimed another victim after calling the 11,360,972 three-bet jam by Wenhao 'pwhwin' Peng. Garla, with [poker card="Ad"][poker card="4d"], was dominated by Peng's [poker card="Ac"][poker card="6c"] but the chip leader made three of a kind as the board came [poker card="Kh"][poker card="9d"][poker card="4h"][poker card="4s"][poker card="5d"]. Peng finished in fifth for $119,212.54. Theologis then opened the action and raised to 2 million with Garla and Schein calling from the button and big blind respectively. The flop came [poker card="Kc"][poker card="Qc"][poker card="6h"] and created a whirlwind of action, it checked through to Garla for took a stab at the pot with a bet of 2.277 million. Schein then min-raised and Theologis then clicked it back to 7.831 million, Garla folded and Schein then moved all in and was quickly called by Theologis. Schein, with [poker card="Kh"][poker card="6d"], surely thought he was ahead with top and bottom pair but found himself needing help as Theologis flopped middle set with [poker card="Qh"][poker card="Qs"]. The American ended the day in fourth as he failed to improve on the [poker card="4c"] turn and [poker card="9s"] river. With no player looking to give up any ground, Bhatia was sent to rail in third. In a button versus blind battle, Bhatia opened to 2.4 million and Garla three-bet to 6.6 million and snap-called Bhatia's 21,780,380 four-bet jam. Bhutia needed a miracle as his [poker card="Ac"][poker card="Kh"] was in bad shape against Garla's [poker card="Ah"][poker card="Ad"]. Bhatia got now help on the [poker card="8s"][poker card="7c"][poker card="2s"][poker card="Kc"][poker card="7h"] run out. Going into heads up play the blinds were 600,000/1,200,000 and the stacks were: Garla: 102,973,521 (85.8BBs) Theologis: 58,864,219 (49BBs) But it only took Garla a few more minutes to wrap up the victory after maintaining the chip lead for the duration of the final table. Theologis was then in the danger zone after falling to 11 blinds. Garla had chipped away at the Englishman's stack but took a 10 to 1 chip lead after winning a pot of 37.8 million. Theologis called a river bet of 11.76 million into a pot of 14.28 million with [poker card="Qs"][poker card="Jd"] for second pair on the [poker card="Ts"][poker card="4h"][poker card="3h"][poker card="Qh"][poker card="Ks"] board but Garla rivered top pair with his [poker card="Kh"][poker card="5d"]. The killer blow was delivered two minutes later as both players were all in preflop. Theologis: [poker card="2c"][poker card="2s"] Garla: [poker card="Qd"][poker card="7d"] Garla sealed the win, his first career bracelet and a 3,551,611.32 HKD ($461,709.47) payday as he flopped top pair and held as the board came [poker card="Qh"][poker card="Ts"][poker card="4h"][poker card="5s"][poker card="Th"]. Final Table Payouts Luis 'Xapilskinha' Assuncao Garla - $461,709.47 Alexandros 'THE Sheriff' Theologis - $329,122.04 Kunal 'Alex_52' Bhatia - $234,609.77 Alan 'TheCockroach' Schein - $167,237.48 Wenhao 'pwhwin' Peng - $119,212.54 Divanshu 'd0rk21' Khurana - $84,978.95 Eduards 'lIlIlIlIillI' Kudrjavcevs- $60,575.74 Vladas 'Vladiator13' Tamasauskas - $43,180.48 Ignacio 'Curandero' Moron - $30,780.46 Faces in the Crowd A plethora of notable names made it to Day 2 and finished in the money. Bracelet winner Chris Moorman (159th - $3,712) added another WSOP cash to what has been an impressive series from the Englishman. Another player representing the United Kingdom was recent WSOP bracelet winner Roberto Romanello (120th - $4,234). Romanello became the first Welsh-born player to win a bracelet and latest player to join the prestigious 'Triple Crown' winners list with titles in the WPT, EPT and now WSOP. Alex Foxen (78th), Daniel Negreanu (77th) and Brandon Adams (75th) all cashed for $5,665. Kristen Bicknell (53rd - $5,665 ), Parker Talbot (34th - $7,948) and Steve O'Dwyer (25th - $11,149) all amassed big chip stacks at one stage in Day 2 but fell before the final table. The unfortunate final table boy was last years WSOP Main Event runner-up Dario Sammartino who finished in 10th place for $21,941.
  5. Denis Strebkov and Shaun Deeb sit firmly atop the PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker all-time leaderboard with nine and eight titles respectively. The group right behind is growing and coming hard though. On Thursday night, Russia's Andrey Zaichenko moved into a tie for third place all-time after capturing his fifth career WCOOP title. He's now tied with former #1-ranked PocketFiver Dan Kelly and Dzmitry Urbanovich. Zaichenko's win came in Event #62 High ($1,050 Stud Hi Lo) where he outlasted 100 other players to earn the victory and $24,745. Zaichenko, Kelly, and Urbanovich may have company soon. Finland's Jussi 'calvin7v' Nevanlinna won Event #60 Medium ($55 Six Max Pot Limit Omaha) for the fourth WCOOP title of his career. Fabiano Kovalski outlasted 96 other players in Event #59 High ($5,200 NLHE Midweek Freeze) to win $119,483.15 and his third WCOOP title, one in each of the last three years. Currently ranked #43 in the world, the Brazilian won his first WCOOP in 2018 when he took down a $1,050 NLHE event. He followed that up in 2019 by shipping a $530 Four Max NLHE event. The last player that Zaichenko vanquished on the way to his Thursday night win, 'XD89lol<3' didn't have to settle for a runner-up performance. The Finn grabbed the top spot on the podium in Event #64 High ($1,050 Omaha 8-or-better) to earn $30,855.69. 'Pappe_Ruk' bagged their second WCOOP title ever, beating out 417 entries in Event #61 High ($1,050 Six Max NLHE PKO). The win came with $32,452.10 from the prize pool plus an additional $35,644.50 in bounties. There were a handful of first-time winners as well. Germany's 'Sintoras' topped the 184-entry field in Event #60 High ($530 Six Max PLO) to grab the first WCOOP title of their career and a $56,608.50 score. Estonia's Markku 'markovitsus' Koplimaa, who is ranked #21 in the world, won his first COOP title by beating 407 other runners in Event #65 High ($1,050 Six Max NLHE). Thursday's WCOOP slate was a busy one with another 11 players entering the winner's circle including 'Her087' (#59 Medium), 'frost3ggg' (#59 Low), 'oyarzun2010' (#60 Low), 'theomatador' (#61 Medium), 'BaNaN4oo' (#61 Low), 'Schmitzen' (#62 Medium), 'MoreVon' (#62 Low), 'Speck ftw' (#64 Medium), 'Sqwadr' (#64 Low), 'Caldini00' (#65 Medium), and 'stilchuka' (#65 Low).
