Movers & Shakers takes a look into those PocketFives members that have made big moves in the top 100 of the online poker rankings. The most high-profile moves in the rankings belong to two very notable players, Steve 'MrTimCaum' O'Dwyer and Alex 'SploogeLuge' Foxen, but the biggest move within the top 100 was that of Arturs 'ARTSchGamble' Scerbaks. Steve 'MrTimCaum' O’Dwyer (#7) Climbs in Top 10 Whether it’s live or online, Steve 'MrTimCaum' O'Dwyer has been on top form as of late, and his rise three spots within the top 10 are evidence of his recent success, as O'Dwyer went from being #10 to #7. O'Dwyer closed out November with a $31,450 win on partypoker in the High Roller Club: $1,050 Super Tuesday, $150K Gtd for 394.97 points and earned a third-place finish for $18,758 and 220.07 points in the PokerStars High Roller Club: $530 Sunday 500, $100K Gtd, among other decent results. O'Dwyer has carried that momentum into December with a handful of deep runs in high roller events around the online world, including two seventh-place finishes. The first came on PokerStars when O'Dwyer took seventh in the High Roller Club: $1,050 Sunday Supersonic [6-Max, Hyper-Turbo], $150K Gtd for $9,111 and 161.43 points. He then took seventh in the partypoker Sunday Super High Roller: $200K Gtd for $11,700 and 168.27 points. Moving to #7 in the rankings is an all-time high for O'Dwyer, who is currently the #1-ranked player in Ireland. Alex 'SploogeLuge' Foxen (#23) Up Nine Spots Despite all of the live tournament poker going on in the world, Alex 'SploogeLuge' Foxen has put in a ton of volume in the online realm and his rise of nine spots to #23 is the result. Foxen recently won the PokerStars $1,050 High Roller Club Sunday Supersonic for $43,057 and 468.43 points as November came to a close. Since that score, Foxen has earned three more five-figure results. The most recent of the three came to kick off December for Foxen, when he won the PokerStars High Roller Club: $1,050 Daily Warm-Up [8-Max], $100K Gtd for $25,578 and 333.17 points. Foxen's new position at #23 in the world is an all-time high. Arturs 'ARTSchGamble' Scerbaks (#42) with Big Leap Arturs 'ARTSchGamble' Scerbaks has the biggest jump as of late, climbing 48 spots to #42 on the rankings. Thats a new all-time high for Scerbaks, who is currently ranked the #1 player in Germany. Whereas some of the more notable names on the rankings, such as O’Dwyer and Foxen, may get sucked away from online play with all of the live poker going on at the moment, Scerbaks is grinding hard. He’s already landed 55 cashes in December, including a third-place result on December 9 worth $20,957 and 231.34 points from the partypoker Sunday High Roller Bounty Hunter: $200K Gtd [Mix-Max]. Scerbaks also won the PokerStars $109 Sunday Starter, $25K Gtd for $5,627 and 172.05 points on the same day, topping a field of 296 entries in that one. 'Kot_spartac' (#29) Also Earns All-Time High The theme of this Movers & Shakers is obvious, isn't it? The players already talked about are at new all-time highs on the rankings, and 'Kot_spartac' can join them in the feat. The current #3-ranked player in Russia is at #29 overall and that’s the highest he’s ever been. Just about halfway through December, 'Kot_spartac' has had himself quite the month, with four victories and four five-figure paydays. On December 2, 'Kot_spartac' won the PokerStars Hotter $215, $75K Gtd for $18,402 and 322.49 points. On December 6, he took down the PokerStars High Roller Club: $1,050 Thursday Thrill [Progressive KO], $200K Gtd for $22,378 and 333.17 points. That same day, he also won the partypoker High Roller Bounty Hunter: $50K Gtd for $15,687 and 270.72 points. A few days later, on December 9, ‘Kot_spartac’ finished second in the partypoker Sunday Bounty Hunter: $100K Gtd for $12,273 and 228.44 points. 'Inhoo' (#37) Rises 18 Spots, Earns $10M Badge A former #2-ranked player in the world, Sweden’s Robin 'Inhoo' Ylitalo is currently ranked #7 in his country and has moved up 18 spots to his current worldwide spot of #37. For Ylitalo, it’s been all about volume in the first two weeks of December, as he’s piled up 85 cashes already this month. His biggest score came from a second-place finish in the PokerStars High Roller Club: $1,050 Wednesday HR [8-Max], $100K Gtd on December 5 for $18,451 and 208.63 points. The biggest story for Ylitalo isn’t that he climbed 18 spots to #37, but rather that his recent success has pushed him over the $10 million mark in online tournament winnings and awarded him as the 15th player to achieve the PocketFives $10 Million Badge.
partypoker ambassadors Joao Simao, Anatoly Filatov, and Kristen Bicknell all won gold medals on an eventful Sunday, as Roman Romanovsky took down the 888poker $1,050 Whale for the fourth time. A three-way deal in this week's PokerStars Sunday Million led to Germany's Arturs 'ARTSchGamble' Scerbaks taking this week's title alongside $134,333. The tournament attracted 6,058 entrants which produced a prize pool worth $1,211,600. Well-known high-stakes player Talal 'raidalot' Shakerchi had a deep run but ultimately fell in sixth place for a $26,301 score, before the Brazilian duo of Taka 'ManafesTT' Tamura and Pedro 'FlipMaster08' Paulo hit the rail in fifth ($37,478) and fourth ($53,405) place respectively. The final three remaining players then agreed to a money-deal before play resumed for the title battle. 'The39player' departed with the bronze medal for $98,326, before Scerbaks saw off the challenge from the U.K.'s Andy 'andyh26' Holman, who fell in second place for $106,417, to take the win. 'Naza114' defeated 'Malaka$tyle' heads-up in the PokerStars $2,100 Sunday High Roller to bank $65,069. The field was set at 155 entrants and Gerald 'viking47' Ringe, Scott 'Aggro Santos' Margereson, Ricardo 'riversouza' Souza, Stephen 'stevie444' Chidwick, world ranked #1 'Lena900' and RaiseYourEdge Head Coach 'bencb789' all came and went at the final table before Brazil's 'cassiopak' claimed third place for $38,941. 'Malaka$tyle' became the final player to fall and banked $50,337 leaving 'Naza114' as the victor. Kristen 'krissyb24' Bicknell just missed out on a second Sunday win of the day after 'mikki696' got the better of the Canadian heads-up in the PokerStars $2,100 Sunday Cooldown. Earlier on in the day, Bicknell took the gold medal in the Bigger $215 for $19,883 and continued her good form onto the Cooldown final table. 'Lena900', among others, departed from the final nine before 'TiltMeBig' exited in third place $22,025 + $1,000 (in bounties). There was plenty to the play as Bicknell battled 'Mikki696' for the top prize alongside mega money bounties, but the partypoker ambassador was ultimately confirmed as runner-up for $28,508 + $27,296, with 'Mikki696' adding $36,898 + $44,546 to their bankroll. partypoker ambassador Joao Simao prevented Jonathan 'proudflop' Proudfoot from making it back-to-back Sunday titles on the partypoker client. Proudfoot took down the partypoker 150k Gtd Main Event last week for $29,631 but had to settle for the silver medal this time around in the partypoker $1,050 Sunday HR Bounty Hunter. Proudfoot added another $19,440 + $11,319 (in bounties) to his bankroll after the Brazilian Simao came through the final battle to take the win for $26,865 + $26,521. 'SpiritDNA' came through a 117 player field in the partypoker $2,600 Super Sunday High Roller to bank an eye-watering $71,662. Jonathan Proudfoot continued his rich vein of form and made a final table appearance, falling in sixth place for $14,265. 'orud74' and 'aLiNeNok1617' took fifth and fourth place respectively before 'madgenius87' hit the rail in third for $36,562. 'z-boooo' then succumb to the pressure from 'SpiritDNA' and exited in second place for $51,187. But 'SpiritDNA' wasn't done for the day and made a second final table appearance in the partypoker $1,050 Sunday HR Bounty Hunter. The prize pool was set at $253,980 after 249 entrants took part and after 'Maddonaa' exited in third place for $13,719 + $3,217, Anatoly 'NL_Profit' Filatov was looking to become the second partypoker ambassador of the day to win a title, but in his way was 'SpiritDNA' who was looking for a double gold medal. Ultimately it was to be the Russian Filatov who continued his hot streak in 2018, and took the win for $29,257 + $30,092, with 'SpiritDNA' banking $19,297 + $14,297 in second place. World ranked #8 Roman 'Romeopro33' Romanovsky took down the 888poker $1,050 Whale for the fourth time in his career to edge closer to the $1m earnings on the client. The tournament came with $50,000 guaranteed, but after 75 entrants took part the final prize pool was set at $75,000. 'Kannwas' took third place for $11,250, before Romanovsky found himself heads-up in the Whale for the fifth time this year, previously winning and losing both twice. The Ukrainian once again went the distance this time around as he got the better of 'PokerJoe332' who took away $16,875 as runner-up and 'Romeopro33' claimed the $26,250 first-place prize.

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.
