  1. Last month, Germany's KingKong0815(pictured) was part of a three-way chop of the PokerStars Sunday Million and put back $165,000, officially taking third place. "I'm pretty stoked," he told PocketFives in an exclusive interview. "It still feels pretty unreal." Unreal like watching a giant ape climb the Empire State Building? The cash accounts for nearly all of his winnings in his PocketFives profile, so not surprisingly, he plans to refresh his bankroll and invest in non-poker activities with his newfound riches. He wanted to chop four-handed, but fellow PocketFiver bazeman wasn't up for
  2. Now that a couple of weeks have passed since the end of SCOOP, I have started doing consultations with my students again. Many of them are bringing their SCOOP hand histories to me, wondering what they can learn from them. The opportunity has been great for me, as I've been blessed to receive pay for watching and analyzing many SCOOP final tables. It's something so fun to do that I almost feel guilty charging for. But, simultaneously, these weeks have also caused me to grow concerned for my students. These guys are some of the best players in the world and yet sometimes they don't even know
  3. One of the most memorable hands of the WSOP Main Event was Mark Newhouse's bust-out hand. It deserved the attention. Newhouse, after finishing ninth the year before, placed his tournament on the line by turning his pocket tens into a bluff. He made a decision few of us could make, and fewer would know if it were correct. Some, like Antonio Esfandiari while commentating, heralded Newhouse for his heart. Others decried his handling of his second Main Event final table in as many years. All enjoyed seeing some of the ballsiest tournament poker ever played. In this article, I hope to shed s
  4. "Unknown with 170K in chips joins the table two to my right; He seems to be from Western Europe, Dutch or German. He is young and wearing a hoodie. I have around 146K in chips. At 500/1,000/100, he opens to 2,200. I am in the hijack. I make it 5,400 with Ac-Kd. The Germanic raiser flats. K-J-7 rainbow board comes out. He checks, I bet 8K, and he makes it 28K. I make it 68k. He goes all-in, I call." When an unknown sits at the table, I try to minimize my bet sizes with him until I have a better feel for how he plays. This question, in a bubble, as you can see, is unanswerable. You committed
  5. Over the past few years, Alex Assassinato Fitzgerald (pictured) has grown into one of the most dedicated coaches in the game. Through his coaching, he imparts wisdom to enable poker players to take the next steps in their games. Fitzgerald has over $3,100,000 in online tournament cashes tracked by PocketFives along with almost $600,000 in live tournament cashes tracked by the Hendon Mob. Fitzgerald is also a senior coach at 2CardCollege, where he helps train some of the program's almost 150 students. Even if you haven't been a student of Fitzgerald's, there is still a good chance you h
  6. [caption width="640"] Alex 'Assassinato' Fitzgerald is back with another lesson on poker study habits.[/caption] One of the first questions I’ll ask you if you ever do a lesson with me is, "How many hours a week do you study?" The answer most players had for many years was, "Once in a while." I’d ask what they meant by that and they’d explain that they watched a video on occasion. They admitted they probably did not study enough, but they felt like they were wasting their time while they did it. They would be very surprised when I’d agree with them. "Most training videos and forums are
  7. It's not easy to coach day after day, week after week, year after year. Not only do your life circumstances change, but so does the industry you're coaching in. For Alex 'Assassinato' Fitzgerald, changing with the times has seemingly been a piece of cake. Fitzgerald has been working with the poker training site SpinAndGoStrategyand, between now and Sunday, January 31, players can get 25% off two of Fitzgerald's MTT training videosthat total over eight hours of instruction. One, called "Why Pessagno is Right," covers stack size dynamics, playing a short stack, and raise-folding and 3bet-fold
  8. If you're not familiar with it, 2CardsCollegeis the largest poker school in the Russian-speaking part of the world. Currently, the school regularly trains over 150 students. You might have seen a link that says "Poker School" on the top of our site. Well, it goes straight to 2CardsCollege. 2CardsCollege is now launching on the global market with such renowned coaches as PocketFivers Apestylesand Assassinatoon its roster. PocketFives talked to the founder of 2CardsCollege, Ivan, who is better known as tannhauseronline. Ivan started the interview by reminding us, "The times when you could
  9. It's that time of year again. People are gearing up for the WSOP and WPT, which means a lot of MTT pros will have to put on pants to play poker and enter the lights of a brick-and-mortar casino. I was discussing the upcoming WPT tournament in Florida with Alex Assassinato Fitzgerald and, with his permission, wanted to share with you some thoughts. As a lowly non-pro, I get super excited by the televised events, the glitz, the glamour, and the stars I grew up watching all competing on the world stage vying for Player of the Year points. Alex however, seemed to be hesitant to get into the
