  1. It took just 55 minutes on Friday morning for 'MacDaddy15' to go from middle of the final table pack to World Series of Poker bracelet winner in Event #9 ($1,000 NLHE Six Max) and in the process earn the single biggest score of the 2020 WSOP to date. A total of 1,026 entries from 658 unique players created a $974,700 prize pool with the eventual champion getting to take home $188,214 and the bracelet. When the final table began, Ruth 'crazeeelf666' Ruffman held a comfortable chip lead with 'WillowG23' in second and 'MacDaddy15' not far behind in third. Ian 'apokerjoker2' Steinman was the first player sent packing by 'MacDaddy15'. From the button, 'MacDaddy15' raised to 332,500 with [poker card="2d"][poker card="2s"] before Steinman moved all in for 1,365,109 with [poker card="ad"][poker card="9d"]. 'MacDaddy15' called and then had to sweat all the way through a [poker card="kd"][poker card="qd"][poker card="5s"][poker card="js"][poker card="jc"] runout to eliminate Steinman in sixth. Five-handed play lasted another 15 minutes before the next elimination hand occurred. 'Im.Sorry' raised to 250,000 from the cutoff with [poker card="kh"][poker card="jd"] before 'moodeez' re-raised all in for 890,486 from the small blind with [poker card="jh"][poker card="th"] and 'Im.Sorry' called. The [poker card="ac"][poker card="kc"][poker card="4d"] flop gave 'Im.Sorry' second pair and the [poker card="5c"] turn and [poker card="5h"] river failed to save 'moodeez' from a fifth place finish. A few moments later, 'Im.Sorry' raised to 254,000 from the hijack with [poker card="qh"][poker card="qs"] only to have Ruth 'crazeelf666' re-raise to 806,000 with [poker card="td"][poker card="ts"]. 'Im.sorry' continued betting, moving all in for 4,489,926 and Ruffman called all in. Ruffman was unable to improve on the [poker card="ac"][poker card="8d"][poker card="2d"][poker card="6h"][poker card="5h"] runout and was eliminated in fourth. 'Im.Sorry' continued to be the aggressor and ended another player's run five minutes later. 'Im.Sorry' called from the button and 'WillowG23' checked their big blind. The flop came [poker card="kc"][poker card="7h"][poker card="3d"] and 'WillowG23' checked and then called after 'Im.Sorry' threw in a bit of 160,000. The turn was the [poker card="jc"] and 'WillowG23' check-called after 'Im.Sorry' bet 225,000. The river was the [poker card="5c"], 'WillowG23' checked and 'Im.Sorry' moved all-in for 10,070,712 . 'WillowG23' called all in for 1,614,568 and showed [poker card="ks"][poker card="9c"] for top pair but 'Im.Sorry' turned over [poker card="7c"][poker card="6c"] for a flush to send 'WillowG23' home in third position. That both gave 'Im.Sorry' 62.8% of the chips at the start of heads up play. The play played for nearly 15 minutes before 'MacDaddy15' took over the lead thanks to winning an all in preflop hand with [poker card="tc"][poker card="ts"] against the [poker card="ad"][poker card="qs"] of 'Im.Sorry'. Two minutes later, the tournament was over. Down to 10 big blinds, 'Im.Sorry' open-shoved for 1,752,560 with [poker card="kh"][poker card="4c"] and 'MacDaddy15' called with [poker card="td"][poker card="5d"]. The [poker card="kd"][poker card="7d"][poker card="6h"] flop gave 'MacDaddy15' a flush draw and gave 'Im.Sorry' to pair. The [poker card="qd"] turn filled that flush draw and eliminated 'Im.Sorry' as the runner-up as the [poker card="2c"] completed the board to officially crown 'MacDaddy15' as the winner. Final Table Payouts MacDaddy15 - $188,214 Im.Sorry - $116,379 WillowG23 - $81,972 Ruth 'crazeelf666' Ruffman - $58,482 mooodeez - $43,301 Ian 'apokerjoker2' Steinman - $30,995 Faces in the Crowd The #1-ranked player in the United States, Yong 'LuckySpewy1' Kwon, came in 56th for $2,729.16 and was one of a handful of notable names to make it into the money. Daniel Negreanu picked up another cash, his fourth, coming in 96th for $1,851.93 and Event #1 champion Jonathan 'Art.Vandelay' Dokler snuck into the top 100, finishing 99th for $1,851.93. A pair of former #1 PocketFivers also had a winning day. Ari 'philivey' Engel finished 105th for $1,754.46 and Chris 'Robotbob47' Moorman was behind him, coming in 141st to take home $1,656.99. Anthony 'heheh' Zinno (22nd - $5,360.25), Shawn 'Saygoodnight' Daniels (37th - $3,703.86), Nick 'cashUSklay' Schulman (43rd - $3,703.86), and Kevin 'ImaLuckSac' MacPhee (95th - $1,851.93) also cashed.
  2. New Jersey grinder David 'dehhhhh' Coleman had a strong December on the virtual felt and as a result has taken over the #1 spot on the USA Online Poker Rankings. Coleman cashed 30 times in December but picked up a bulk of his points with impressive back-to-back wins in the PokerStars Sunday Special. On December 15, Coleman topped the 116-entry field in the $200 buy-in event to win $6,250 and lockup 158.11 PLB points. One week later, he beat out 114 other players to win another $6,250 and 158.11 PLB points. He also managed to pick up 102.7 points thanks to a runner-up finish in the WSOP $15,00 Weekly Saturday on December 8. His total earnings for December were $15,272. [ptable zone="Global Poker Article Ad"][ptable zone="888poker"][ptable zone="PokerStars NJ"] One spot behind Coleman was former #1-ranked American Yong 'ykwon17' Kwon. Kwon cashed just 14 times but managed to win the PokerStars NJ Nightly Stars on two separate occasions for 95.33 and 96.29 PLB points respectively. Sandwiched between those two scores was a sixth-place finish in the WSOP.com Sunday Weekly for 71.5 points. Jon 'itsmejon' Borenstein holds down the #3 spot following a massive month in terms of PLB points earned. He cashed just nine times and just three of those counted towards his PLB total. He won the WSOP.com $100,000 GTD Sunday on December 2 for $29,256 and 332.26 points. Three weeks later he did it again, this time winning $28,859 and 330 points. He also picked up 60.17 points for an eighth-place finish in the WSOP.com $30,000 Weekly Sunday on December 2 and 96.22 points for coming in third.

The #1 player from the Silver State is David 'bewater' Goodman at #15. He is currently sitting on 2,944 points - 1,710 points behind Coleman for top spot. Goodman continues to hold on to the top spot despite taking nearly all of December off. He cashed just once and it wasn't a strong enough finish to count towards his PLB total. Tanner 'Bamatide88' Bibat sits at #2 after having three of his five December cashes boost his PLB points total to 2,783. On December 17, Bibat finished second in the $5,555 Weekly Monday for $1,071 and 52.37 points. Then, on December 23, he finished 11th in the WSOP.com $15,000 Weekly Sunday Deepstack for $262 and 33.68 points before taking down the WSOP.com $7,000 Daily Turbo Deepstack for $2,179 and 87.43 points. Rounding out the podium for Nevada is Jed 'JCHAK' Hoffman. He started December off with a fifth-place finish in the WSOP.com $10,000 Weekly Saturday event for $885 and 43.13 points. He then picked up 45.42 points in the Sunday $100,000 to finish off the month. Ian 'APokerJoker2' Steinman moved up to #4 in Nevada after having four of his five December cashes add 212.59 points to his PLB total. Steinman now sits at 1,056th in the world - an all-time high for him.

  5. [caption width="369" align="alignleft"] Ian 'APokerJoker2' Steinman climbed to #2 in Nevada[/caption] It's amazing how quickly the PocketFives Rankings can change in one short month. It took only four weeks for Ian 'APokerJoker2' Steinmanof Carson City to crack the top 10 of the rankings in Nevada and climb all the way to #2. Steinman has 2,003 PLB Points, the measure used to determine the rankings, and trails top-ranked 'ChaosTheory' by just 56. He had a dozen wins in January to help his cause, which is remarkable considering the limited tournament schedule in Nevada. His biggest cash came in the WSOP.com Big Deal on the last day of the month for $13,000 and 213 PLB Points. Steinman is up to 39 tracked wins and $138,000 in career scores across almost 1,000 in the money finishes. He is the top-ranked player in Carson City and #41 in the US. Can he ascend to #1 come March? It's certainly possible if he continues his torrid pace. 'ChaosTheory' was #1 in Nevada to open 2016 and has since added about 80 PLB Points to his score, which is now 2,059. This Henderson poker player won four tournaments in January, the largest of which was worth $3,500 and came by virtue of taking down a Six-Max Winter Poker Classic event on WSOP.com. 'ChaosTheory' has $358,000 in lifetime winnings; his five largest in the money finishes all came in 2010 on Full Tilt when the site accepted US customers. David 'MastAAce08' Goodman was down one spot in the Nevada rankings this month to #3 and has 1,931 PLB Points, 128 off first place and 72 off second. Like Steinman and 'ChaosTheory', Goodman has been winning tournaments left and right. In fact, he took down seven of them in January to lift his career total to 65. The largest tournament score for Goodman last month was a $2,700 haul for taking down a Winter Poker Classic event. Goodman is approaching $700,000 in career online tournament scores and won the PokerStars Sunday Supersonic a few years ago for $56,000, his largest cash to date. You can find him under the screen name 'BeWater' on WSOP.com. Moving up one spot in the Nevada rankings in February was 'DatDude', who lives in Las Vegas and trails Goodman by 450 points. 'DatDude' had two tournament wins in January, but recorded 29 top-10 finishes. He is on the verge of hitting $100,000 in scores for his career and is the second-ranked player in the poker hotbed of Sin City. Michael 'Freakinpoet76' Mulvania moved up three spots in the Nevada rankings this month to #5, his highest position ever. Mulvania recorded his two largest scores ever in January: a $1,300 cash for winning a WSOP.com nightly event and another $1,300 cash for taking second in the site's Weekend Warm-Up. He now has 85 tracked wins and, like 'DatDude', will likely hit $100,000 in career scores this month. Finally, 'wsopfreezer' reentered the top 10 in Nevada at #6. He turned in four wins last month, including a $6,900 cash for taking down the WSOP.com $20,000 Guaranteed. He plays as simply 'freezer' on WSOP.com and owns exactly 80 top-three MTT finishes. Here are the top 10 players in Nevada this month along with the PLB score for each. 'ChaosTheory', 'APokerJoker2', and 'MastAAce08' are all jockeying for #1, and the latter two are certainly within striking distance of the top spot: ChaosTheory - 2,059 points APokerJoker2 - 2,003 points MastAAce08 - 1,931 points DatDude - 1,482 points Freakinpoet76 - 1,441 points wsopfreezer - 1,430 points Power - 1,409 points lindeyloo22 - 1,368 points PaulDewald - 1,351 points JCHAK - 1,299 points
  6. [caption width="640"] Ian 'APokerJoker2' Steinman widened his lead in the Nevada rankings[/caption] After taking hold of top spot in the Nevada rankings in February, Ian 'APokerJoker2' Steinman made sure there was no changing of the guard in March. After holding down a 233-point lead last month over second place, Steinman widened his lead to over 500 points. He now sits with 2,393 points as the state's top-ranked player. Steinman had 54 in the money finishes in March, nine of which were wins. Seven days into the month, he took down the WSOP.com $10,000 Guaranteed Sunday Reloader for $4,100, his largest cash of the 31-day stanza and his fourth largest overall. Eighteen days later, he found the winner's circle of the site's $3,000 Guaranteed Nightly No Limit Hold'em and put back another $1,800, his second largest payday of the month. The nine wins in March raised Steinman's career total to 60. He is about $10,000 shy of hitting $100,000 in career winnings on WSOP.com, the lone regulated online poker room in Nevada, and calls Carson City home. At the end of the month, he was seen at the WPT DeepStacks event in Reno and won the $3,000 Guaranteed from his hotel room. Must be nice. Second place in the Nevada rankings belongs to 'ChaosTheory', who has 1,890 points. He logged two dozen in the money finishes in March, although no cash hit four-figures. His two tracked wins came in the WSOP.com $800 Guaranteed No Limit Hold'em Deep Stack on March 29 and in a Mini Fest tournament eight days before that. 'ChaosTheory' now has $107,000 in lifetime winnings on WSOP.com and is the top-ranked online poker player in Henderson. His largest Nevada cash came last year in the Sunday Reloader on WSOP.com for $3,800. 'wsopfreezer' moved up one spot in the Nevada rankings to #3. He trails 'ChaosTheory' by only 40 points and landed in the money 27 times during the month of March, four of which were first place finishes. 'wsopfreezer' won the WSOP.com $3,000 Guaranteed Nightly No Limit Hold'em twice last month for over $4,000 total to zoom his way up the leaderboard and now has 37 tracked wins. He officially passed $100,000 in winnings on WSOP.com last month. Michael 'Freakinpoet76' Mulvania was up three spots to #5, his highest position ever. He amazingly cashed almost 100 times in March and had a whopping 14 wins. He opened the month by winning the WSOP.com $2,000 Guaranteed No Limit Hold'em Deep Stack for $1,100 and closed it by taking second in the $3,000 Guaranteed Nightly No Limit Hold'em for another $1,300. Mulvania has 331 top-three finishes over the years and, if his volume continues, he could be a major threat to break into the top three next month. He has $121,000 in career winnings on WSOP.com and is the #3 ranked player in Las Vegas. Bobby 'bcm4924' McLawhorn moved up two spots to #7 on the strength of three four-figure cashes, including two wins in $3,000 Guaranteed tournaments for $1,700 total. McLawhorn also won the WSOP.com $2,000 Guaranteed No Limit Hold'em Deep Stack. He now has 109 tracked wins and $127,000 in earnings on WSOP.com, where he plays under the user name 'bcmclawh'. Daniel 'voff' Deveau entered the top 10 at #10 after taking down the $3,000 Guaranteed Nightly No Limit Hold'em for $2,200, his largest score of March. He also finished second and third in the same tournament last month and has 1,273 PLB Points, about half of what Steinman has, but over 100 more than 11th place. Deveau is over $1 million in career winnings online, much of which came on Full Tilt when that site serviced the US market.

  7. [caption width="640"] Ian Steinman has had a very good summer compared to his last few. =[/caption] Ian ‘APokerJoker2’ Steinman, the #4-ranked online poker player in Nevada, has had himself a decent 2017 World Series of Poker. He’s cashed five times, including a final table, and now starts Day 1B of the Main Event with an above average stack of 94,300. It’s a stark difference from years past for Steinman. “I think I played 10 or 11 tournaments (this year). One was Lowball, ten were Hold’em and I had five cashes and a final table which is pretty crazy for me, because I’ve had terrible summers the last six or seven years,” said Steinman. The numbers don’t lie. Prior to this year he had two WSOP cashes and just $6,729 in earnings. This summer he’s earned $70,658, with $48,276 coming from his seventh place finish in a $1,500 No Limit Hold’em event in late June. He gives one of his friends, Taylor Black, a some of the credit for giving him the confidence to play better. “I think it all started because one of my best friends made the Colossus final table and ended up doing really well and it felt like a freeroll for me, and I didn’t even have a piece,” said Steinman, of Black’s $545,430 score for finishing second in the $565 buy-in event. “Just seeing him make it I was like ‘well if he can do it, then I can do it’. I’ve just been crushing since then, it’s been crazy. I’m running well and I think I’m probably playing well.” Looking back now at his own final table appearance this summer, Steinman can’t help but wish things had gone better for him. His elimination hand saw him racing with [poker card="ac"][poker card="kh"] against Brandon Ageloff’s [poker card="qs"][poker card="qh"] for a pot worth over 75 big blinds. “It hurts. It’s the standard conundrum where, I made a lot of money and I made the final table and I enjoyed every second of it but then it’s like I flipped for all the chips in play for a massive chip lead. Had I folded my way there it would (hurt) less, but the fact that I flipped a coin, I got in a $100,000 real money equity coin flip was brutal, ” said Steinman. “I’m super happy with all of it honestly, because money comes and goes, I would have liked to have won the bracelet, but other than that I’m super happy.” Even though he’s had some success this summer, don’t expect to see him playing bigger buy-in events all over the world. It’s not necessarily an issue of bankroll, it’s about the travel required. Steinman isn’t comfortable flying thanks to a scary incident in his teenage years. “I used to fly all the time. I took a plane trip when I was 15 with my high school band and there was a few of us that got stuck on a second plane. It ended up getting hit by lightning, all the lights went out, it dropped and people were praying,” said Steinman. “It totally traumatized me. I’ve flown once since then and it was a horrible experience.” Even with that, he does want to travel more and has talked about doing hypnosis and other forms of therapy to get him past the fear. “It’s like the final table. In the moment you can’t think about what’s really happening. You’re in a gigantic metal tube flying at 600 miles. I’m playing for more people make in eight years for first place, I can’t think about that. I just have to play,” said Steinman. Even with the profitable summer he’s had, Steinman still wasn’t sold on playing the Main Event. “Everybody was asking me if I was going to play it and I didn’t have any plans to play it, but I answered yes every single time and my friends were like, ‘You’re an idiot, you’re professional poker player, you’re going to play the Main Event’,” said Steinman. He played the Main Event last summer, and even found himself flirting with a top stack late on Day 2. The next day his run was over and he had nothing to show for three days of effort. “Last year I made Day 3, with 300,000 with the 2,400 big blind and I didn’t make the money, which is like six hours into Day 3 so it’s hard to say I played well. I feel like I played well but it had to be some kind of punt,” said Steinman.
  8. [caption width="640"] Ian 'APokerJoker2' Steinman continues to lead the Nevada rankings[/caption] It seems that nothing is going to be able to shake Ian 'APokerJoker2' Steinman from the #1 spot in the Nevada Online Poker Rankings. Steinman finds himself sitting on top of the leaderboard for the third straight month and the group of players chasing him did their best in April to close the gap. Steinman had nine wins, five second place finishes and another nine third place finishes in April. His most impressive day was on Sunday, April 17 when he booked two small wins before finishing second in the $20,000 Guaranteed Weekly. Last month Steinman had a 500-point lead over his next nearest competitor, but Bobby 'bcm4924' McLawhorn closed the gap to just 358 points after having a month to remember. McLawhorn, who rose from #7 to #2 over the course of the month, had nine wins of his own, including four straight wins over four days from April 13 - April 16. He also took down the $10,000 Guaranteed Sunday Reloaded on April 11 for his single biggest score of the month ($3,696). Mark "wsopfreezer" Johns maintained his #3 ranking despite winning only two tournaments all month. All told, he cashed 25 times with eight of those being top three finishes. 'ChaosTheory’ dropped four #2 to #4 but cashed 29 times in the month, winning twice and finishing third five times. His biggest win of the month came in the $50,000 guaranteed Spring Poker Series Main Event where he finished third for $5,471. Rounding out the top five this month is David ‘MastAAce08’ Goodman who had five wins on WSOP.com including two $2,000 Guaranteed Nightly events and wins in the $1,500 Guaranteed and $2,500 Guaranteed Nightly events. Goodman also finished sixth in the Spring Poker Series Main Event for $2,153 – his biggest score of the month. Michael ‘Freakinpoet76’ Mulvania fell out of the top five, slipping to #6. Mulvania cashed 38 times in April, but only found the winner’s circle one time – in a $500 guaranteed event with 69 players. He too had his biggest score of the month in the Spring Poker Series Main Event, where he finished seventh for $1,795. Paul ‘PaulDewald’ Dewald moved up one spot to #7. His month was highlighted by a win in the WSOP.com Spring Poker Series $10,000 Guaranteed Six Max for $3,737.37. Right behind Dewald is ‘DatDude’, who fell from #5 despite three wins among his 27 cashes in April. ‘Power’ and ‘voff’, who were #9 and #10 respectively last month, swapped spots this month.
