  1. Join PocketFives throughout the month of December as we bring you the PocketFives 12 Days of Christmas to help keep you in the spirit of giving. It's that time of year again when gift givers scramble to pick the perfect gift for the poker player in their life. While it's impossible to give the gift every poker player really want - a healthy dose of run good, we have done our best to assemble gift ideas that show that you truly understand how deep their devotion to the game is. Not everything on this list is going to be for everyone and they won’t all be great stocking stuffers. But if you want a gift someone (or even yourself) with some killer poker presents this year here’s a few items we like. [caption id="attachment_621555" align="alignnone" width="768"] Both Kem and Faded Spade make high-quality 100% plastic coated playing cards.[/caption] Kem/Faded Spade Cards Sick of playing with cards that resemble disposable napkins like you do at some poker rooms/festivals? Want a deck that looks and feels great in your hand as you turn over the nuts in a bloated pot? Kem branded cards are widely considered a top-tier brand of plastic cards and have been around for decades. They are 100% plastic giving them a great shelf life and have a classic look that will add some class to any home game. If you want something a little more modern, Faded Spade has introduced an updated four color deck to mimic the online poker look. Faded Spade is also 100% plastic for durability and they have a non-traditional, pretty cool illustration design for the face cards. You can get a two deck set of either brand for roughly $25. [caption id="attachment_621556" align="alignnone" width="768"] AirPods are great for when poker players are on the go. Sennheiser is a high quality over the ear headphone for the online grind.[/caption] Apple AirPods Some poker players and poker industry influencers are not really looking to promote images of a hoodied young pro plugged into their headphones, taking down pots while ignoring the table. It’s understandable, a table full of players not engaging with other, obsessed with their own media does not a “fun” game make. However, sometimes you just gotta grind. Downswinging is real and you can’t always be the affable storyteller making sure all the recs are having a blast. What you need is some “you” time at the table where you turn up your best motivational playlist, pop in some wireless headphones and get down to business. Apple AirPods are becoming a top choice for poker players due to their convenience and the ability to keep your head on a swivel, following the action, without all the wires. They sound great, allow you to move around easily and have a little more discretion than a large pair of headphones. AirPods can be picked up for around $100-$150. For the online grinder in your life, getting them a pair of great sounding headphones is a great idea. If you are looking for a suggestion here, a classic pair of Sennheiser 650 Open Back is a five-star choice and can be found for around $320 online. Honorable mention in this category: get a Spotify or Apple Music paid subscription because listening to commercials is not GTO. [caption id="attachment_621557" align="alignnone" width="768"] PokerGo's $10/mo price tag might be the best pure value in poker.[/caption] PokerGO This is a no-brainer. A yearly subscription to PokerGO will have the poker fan in your life glued to their computer (or mobile device) watching the biggest names in the game playing for the highest stakes imaginable. From the revamped Poker After Dark to the heady play in the Super High Roller Bowl, there’s always fresh content on the streaming service and it’s super cheap. $10 a month cheap or you can get a yearly subscription for as little as $89. [caption id="attachment_621558" align="alignnone" width="768"] 50 pros detail their secrets for succeeding in the world of poker.[/caption] The Pursuit Of Poker Success by Lance Bradley Wait! Before you go accusing this writer of being a homer (I am) read this. There are a ton of poker books out there - most of which focus on getting better at the game. Bradley’s The Pursuit of Poker Success has a unique slant unlike any other poker book out there. It talks to 50 of the most long-lived, success cash game and tournament players in history and has them discuss what it means to be a successful poker player. It’s more than how to play AK to a three-bet, it’s more than a simple mindset book (there are good ones for this category too) - the text reads like a motivational blueprint for upping your game from the inside out. Bradley’s book, along with a ton of amazing poker texts can be found at D&B poker. Paperback runs $29.95, ebook $19.99. [caption id="attachment_621559" align="alignnone" width="768"] If you are going to wear sunglasses at the table, wear good ones.[/caption] Ray-Ban Original Classic Wayfarers There’s been a movement in recent years to remove sunglasses from the poker table. The look is, perhaps, a little cliche and could even be intimidating to newer poker players. But here’s the real deal, for some players sunglasses are a security blanket that allows them to play their best game and hide whatever emotion is going on in their head. So we say if you are going to wear sunglasses at the table - look good doing it. There is no more classic, cool brand of sunglasses out there than a pair of RayBan’s Classic Wayfarer sunglasses. Dark lenses, sleek design and known for durability these are a pair of sunglasses that you’ll enjoy wearing away from the table when down in the Bahamas and you end up busting from the PSPC. You can fetch these in a number of designs all for around $150 online. [caption id="attachment_621560" align="alignnone" width="767"] Get your short stack game in good shape with SnapShove.[/caption] SnapShove App The SnapShove App, developed by poker pro Max Silver, is a guide to perfecting short stack play. It’s both a calculator to help players understand shoving ranges with particular stack depths. It’s also a training app that helps players make “perfect decisions every time.” Select how many players are at the table, what the big blind is, how many bigs you have left and your position. The app will give you what range of hands you should be looking to get in the middle profitably. It’s must-know concepts for all tournament players. SnapShove is available on both iOS and Android and the Pro version is only $14.99. [caption id="attachment_621561" align="alignnone" width="768"] A traveling poker player needs a good backpack to go along for the ride.[/caption] Alcatraz Laptop Backpack from Timbuk2 For the poker player who puts a ton of miles in traveling from tournament to tournament, a nice, reliable backpack is a necessity. As a carry-on item on flights and to store all their needs for a long day in the poker room, it’s great to have something that looks as good as it performs. The Custom Alcatraz Laptop back from Timbuk2 is perfect to tote around everything a poker player could want, including their laptop for when they are in countries and US States that allow for some online grinding. This rain resistant backpack allows for some killer stylistic customization. Pick this, and similar bags, up from direct from Timbuk2. The Alcatraz Laptop Backpack runs $144. [caption id="attachment_621562" align="alignnone" width="768"] Nowadays, a trip to the WSOP means much more than taking shots at a bracelet.[/caption] A Trip To The World Series of Poker If you really want to make a splash this holiday season, commit to sending that poker player in your life on what might be their first trip to the World Series of Poker. Now, we’re not suggesting that you withdraw a stack of high society and buy directly into the WSOP Main Event - not at all. While the actual WSOP is the grand attraction in Las Vegas during the summer, the surrounding properties including the ARIA, Wynn, Planet Hollywood and more run their own super series of tournaments and cash games. For a fraction of the Main Event buy-in, a player could book a cheap flight, stay in a decent hotel, grind tournaments for a few days and still get that rush of having been to the World Series of Poker. The only downside to a gift this grand is once a player makes their way to Vegas in the summer, they usually spend the rest of their poker lives trying to find a way back. Happy holidays!
  2. partypoker’s new ‘Team Online’ continues to take shape this week as two more prominent poker streamers have been added to the roster. In the past two days, both Travis ‘dramaticdegen’ Darroch and Patrick ‘XxXMLGPROXxX’ Tardif have been officially appointed as new partypoker ambassadors. Travis ‘dramaticdegen’ Darroch A former aspiring actor, Travis Darroch found his way into poker after his mom, knowing he was a big Matt Damon fan, showed him the iconic poker film Rounders when he was a teenager. Then, after hearing about Twitch from the Joe Rogan podcast, Darroch channeled his desire to be in front of the camera into a successful streaming channel. Now, the Canadian content creator has parlayed his poker ambition into a partnership with partypoker. “I am thrilled to come on board with partypoker and be a part of this exciting project,” Darroch said. “I’m really looking forward to creating some amazing new content over the coming weeks and months.” “I’m excited to represent the next generation of online pros and be a part of Team partypoker,” Tardif said. “When I started on this journey a little over 2 years ago, I didn’t know how it would really end up. I gave myself a year to make something of it. Now entering my third year, I’m battling at high stakes and am an ambassador for one of the most recognized sites in poker. “I’m just enjoying the ride…” Darroch and Tardif join Matt Staples and Hristivoje ‘ALLinPav’ Pavlovic, who were announced earlier this week, on the newly formed online squad. READ: partypoker Reveals First Two Members of New ‘Team Online’ The expanding team of ambassadors is an effort by partypoker to increase their attention to online streaming.This includes a previously announced partnership with Bill Perkins’ ‘Thirst Lounge’ Twitch channel, as well as promises of ramped up programming by their stable of established pros, including Fedor Holz. More online ambassador announcements by partypoker are likely to be made over the course of the week.
  3. For the fifth day in a row, partypoker has announced another addition to their brand new Team Online. Just four days after departing as an ambassador for Unibet Poker, professional gamer turned poker fanatic Alan ‘Hotted89’ Widmann is now officially an ambassador for partypoker. Widmann is a big pickup for partypoker as the Venezuelan born content creator brings a wealth of followers and experience in the online streaming department. Widmann made a name for himself in the world of esports as a professional World of Warcraft player, one that helped him accumulate over 286,000 followers on his Twitch channel. His reach is arguably the deepest of all the online streamers in the game today. Thanks to his esports background, his Twitch channel currently has more followers than Run It Up and his own Twitter account, with 166K followers, has roughly four times the amount of reach than partypoker’s own. Add to that over 143,000 YouTube subscribers, when Widmann chooses to showcase poker, there will be a lot of eyes on what he does. Widmann credits his development in poker to a friendship with one of online poker’s most famous players, Viktor ‘Isildur1’ Blom. According to partypoker, through their friendship, Blom has taken Widmann under his wing, offering him advice along his poker journey.   Widmann spent the better part of two years as an online ambassador for Unibet and during that time he was not only streaming online but representing the company at live events. His first record live cash was at the 2017 Unibet Open where he took first place in their Esports Sit & Go for over $6,000. Since that time, he also spent time at the World Series of Poker. Over the past two year he cashed in four events, including the 2018 Main Event where he finished in the money for $15,000. In total, Widmann is approaching $50,000 in total live earnings. With his new partypoker deal, he’ll likely have the opportunity for much more on the MILLIONS Live tour. All week, partypoker has been unveiling new signings for Team Online. At beginning of the week it was announced that prolific Twitch Poker streamers Matt Staples, bother of former PokerStars ambassador Jaime Staples, and Hristovoje ‘ALLinPav’ Pavlovic would be the first two members of the new squad. By mid-week, the group had grown to four with the additions of Canadians Travis ‘dramaticdegen’ Darroch and Patrick ‘XxXMLGPROXxX’ Tardif. In addition to expanding their reach on Twitch through individual ambassadors, partypoker has announced a partnership with Bill Perkins reborn Twitch channel, ‘The Thirst Lounge’ - a channel that features 10 different streamers all promoting the game of poker with their individual styles but under the same banner. partypoker has indicated that there will be additional announcements to their Team Online in the coming days.
  4. The stable of partypoker’s newly established Team Online continues to grow with the addition of Canada’s Ryan ‘RSchoonbaert’ Schoonbaert. Schoonbaert, like the rest of Team Online, is a professional online poker player and regular Twitch Poker streamer. What separates him though is his affinity for more than just No Limit Hold’em. He plays all the games. Schoonbaert is considered a mixed-game specialist, regularly switching up his stream by hopping into Pot Limit Omaha, H.O.R.S.E, Omaha 8 and 8-Game tournaments. He gives his audience a breath of fresh air from the standard online grind. Prior to dedicating his time to his online stream, the now 27- year old Schoonbaert cut his teeth in the live card rooms of Calgary, Alberta where, from the age of 18, he worked his way up from the low-limit $1/$2 live games up to regularly playing at $10/$25. He currently has just over $100,000 in career recorded tournament earnings as well. Now, he turned that experience into an ambassadorship with partypoker. “I really believe in what partypoker is doing in the poker community and am thrilled to be a part of their team,” Schoonbaert said. “I’m very proud and excited to be on of the initial members to join Team Online, and can’t wait to continue moving up the stakes while streaming the entire journey on Twitch.” In addition to being a go-to stream for mixed games, Schoonbaert is also known for marathon streaming sessions with total transparency of his wins and losses. This isn’t Schoonbaert’s first brush with online poker ambassadorship. As recently as mid-January this year, he announced that he had joined online site HighStakes as a representative. However, unlike the recent public announcements of former ambassadors like Jaime Staples, Jeff Gross, and Kevin Martin, Schoonbaert does not, at this time, have an announcement on his status as a HighStakes ambassador in the wake of his new position with partypoker. Schoonbaert is the sixth online pro announced as part of partypoker's team in the past eight days. He joins the likes of Matt Staples, Hristivoje ‘ALLinPav’ Pavolic, Travis ‘dramaticdegen’ Darroch, Partick ‘XxXMLGPROXxX’ Tardif, and professional esports superstar turned poker player Alan ‘hotted89’ Widmann as the first wave of streamers to be a part of partypoker’s new dedication to online streaming. As previously announced, partypoker’s plans to expand into the world of Twitch Poker include a partnership with Bill Perkins’ revamped ‘Thirst Lounge’ Twitch channel. The site also has planned streaming sessions with members of their established team of pros including online poker's top-5 ranked Patrick ‘pleno1’ Leonard, Ludovic Geilich and Fedor Holz. partypoker will be announcing new additions to Team Online in the coming days.
  5. For one week only, the PokerStars $109 Sunday Million switched up its format and played out as a PKO event with each player having a bounty on their heads. The prize pool reached $1,279,000 after 12,790 players took to the virtual tables and when all was said and done, '42ayay' came out on top. 'Stefkol' took the bronze medal for - $33,393 + $1,661, before 'The39player' departed as runner-up for $46,015 + $10,652, with '42ayay' winning the final bounty and banked $63,416 + $28,055. Tomi 'Elmerixx' Brouk bested a 158 player-field in the PokerStars $2,100 Sunday High Roller to win $63,707. Scott 'Aggro Santos' Margereson took fourth place for $29,076 before Dominik 'Bounatirou' Nitsche claimed third place for $37,765. Finland's Brouk then got the better of former world ranked #1 Joao 'IneedMassari' Simao heads-up, with the Brazilian player having to settle for $49,051 as runner-up. It was then time for Brouk's bitB business partner Samuel '€urop€an' Vousden to claim a gold medal after the Finn took down the PokerStars $530 Bounty Builder High Roller. Vousden added a massive $46,455 + $42,224 in bounties to his bankroll after navigating his way through the 1,142 player-field. 'marathur1' took the silver medal for $34,051 + $7,865, and 'Tomatee' was awarded $24,959 + $3,240 for third place. The PokerStars $215 Sunday Warm-Up also became a PKO event for one week only and with the players battling for the bounties it was 'herr_01' who was victourious. 'Ship_tHis_fu' collected $11,307 alongside $1,217 in bounties, before 'Dawhisky' exited at the last for $15,726 + $3,453, and 'herr_01' took the win for $21,874 + $19,862. partypoker online Team Pro Travis 'DramaticDegen' Darroch continued his good form to take second place in the partypoker $530 Sunday HR Bounty Hunter for $16,595 + $2,313.'blackaces93' banked $11,384 + $1,853 in third place, before Darroch lost out to 'BigPescado69' heads-up with the latter awarded with $16,617 + $28,405 for victory. The 888poker $100,000 Whale featured a new 'Rake or Break' concept with players receiving their registration fee back from $530 buy-in event if the guarantee was not hit. That was to be the case with 176 entrants creating an $88,000 prize pool, with 'ThERaIN96' defeating 'IggyGak' heads-up to win the $20,240 top prize. Canada's Tim 'REALTTWIST' Kelly won $19,350 for victory in the 888poker $100,000 $215 Sunday Mega Deep. 'inkhole' claimed third place for $11,000 and 'TonyCipolla9' was the runner-up for $14,500. 'NOMAMES' had a Sunday to remember on GGPoker after securing first place in the Sunday Blade $10k and second place in the Sunday Blade $5k. The $10k Blade attracted 22 entrants, and 'NOMAMES' was victorious for a staggering $111,501. But they weren't done for the day and added another $52,459 to their day's earnings in the $5k Blade, but fell at the last hurdle against 'ST4rGaz3R' who took the $85,314 top prize.
