  1. The global Coronavirus pandemic meant poker looked very different in 2020 than it has in any other year. That didn't stop some of the most talented players in the world from putting on a show every time they took to the felt in 2020. It Was Connor Drinan's World, We Were All Just Living In It Connor Drinan had a year any poker player would dream of - and he did it while playing a somewhat limited schedule. In May, Drinan, who calls Las Vegas home, traveled outside of the United States to play the PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker more than a week after it began. He quickly made
  2. Make it a month for the #1 ranked player in the world, ‘C Darwin2’. The Swedish superstar continues his vice-like grip atop the PocketFives Worldwide Rankings, holding a 1500 PLB point lead over the next closest player. His continued success presents a gap that would be extremely difficult to bridge in a single week and makes it look like the reigning crusher may very well not only start February in the same spot, but stay put for weeks to come. However, there is a new #2 in the world. Just last week in this column it was pointed out that the 800 point gap between ‘C Darwin2’s countryman,
  3. It should be no surprise that Sweden’s #1-ranked player is also, still, the #1-ranked player in the world. ‘C Darwin2’ may have slipped a little in the PLB points, but still holds a commanding point lead over #2-ranked Steven ‘SvZff’ van Zadelhoff to remain the only #1 player that 2018 has known. It was a low volume week for ‘C Darwin2’ as the superstar only recorded nine total cashes, none of which qualified to add to his PLB point total. With aging results being a factor, ‘C Darwin2’ slipped back to under 11,000 total points, currently sitting with 10,665. Still, the total is more than eno
  4. After four days of play, Tom Marchese defeated the 536-entry field of the inaugural partypoker MILLIONS Vegas at the ARIA Resort & Casino to take home the $1,000,000 first place prize. Packed with superstar talent, the $10,000 buy-in event exceeded the $5 million guarantee, generating a prize pool of $5.36 million in partypoker’s first foray into Las Vegas during the World Series of Poker. The trip to Sin City paid off for partypoker in what was a dream final table lineup packed with some of the biggest names in the game of poker vying for the MILLIONS title and seven-figure payday.
  5. [caption width="640"] Fabrizio Gonzalez sits #1 for the thirteenth straight week - but he has a new threat closing in on him[/caption] Fabrizio 'SixthSenSe19' Gonzalez continues to hold on to the #1 spot in the PocketFives Rankings but a familiar face has reappeared at #2. Sweden's 'C Darwin2' took over the #2 spot after a week that saw him record five cashes big enough to add to his PLB total, including the second biggest PLB points score of his career. 'C Darwin2' beat out 329 other players to win the $530 buy-in partypoker High Roller on Tuesday, December 27. The win was worth $31,92
  6. [caption width="640"] Fabrizio 'SixthSenSe19' Gonzalez remains the #1 ranked online poker player in the world for the 12th consecutive week.[/caption] Even the best online poker players in the world took some time this past week to enjoy the holiday season and spend some time with family and friends rather than grinding away. That lead to a week with no changes at all in the top ten of the PocketFives Rankings with Fabrizio 'SixthSenSe19' Gonzalez sitting on top for the 12th straight week. Gonzalez cashed only seven times with none of them being big enough to earn him any additional PLB
  7. Fifteen players ended their Friday night by winning a PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker title including four players who weren't making their debut in the winner's circle. 'Leqenden', Conor Beresford, Joao Viera, and Connor Drinan, each added another SCOOP title the to their resume but the biggest winner on Friday was Teun 'tinnoemulder' Mulder. The Dutch poker pro topped the 117-entry field in Event #33 High ($10,300 High Roller PKO) to walk away with $113,785.25 and an additional $165,000 from collected bounties. The final player he eliminated was current #1-ranked 'Lena900'
  8. As the poker world has witnessed over the last several weeks, the PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker is usually an opportunity for the best players in the world to shine. The likes of Matthias Eibinger, Ole Schemion, Dominik Nitsche, Patrick Leonard, and Connor Drinan all managed to add SCOOP titles to their collections over the last 28 days. So it's rare to see a new name emerge through one of the tougher fields to claim victory and a massive score. That's exactly what happened on Tuesday however, as 2020 SCOOP drew to a close. 'b@d0s' beat out 2,438 other players to win Eve
  9. If you follow the PocketFives.com Worldwide Rankings at all in 2018 then you know the story. This week it’s more of the same as the Swedish crusher ‘C Darwin2’ continues his reign as the only player to occupy the #1 spot in all of 2018. ‘C Darwin2’ locked himself up three qualifying cashes and a pair of five-figure scores this week. But when he took first place in the PokerStars Daily 500 for $16,064 he did something less than 20 players in the history of online poker have done before. He surpassed $9 million in lifetime earnings. What is even more amazing is the speed with which he did it.
  10. After the Spring Championship of Online Poker, Powerfest and 888poker's XL Inferno series all came to their conclusion last week the world of online poker saw its normal Sunday schedule resume once more this weekend. One player who showed no sign of slowing down was the UK's Michael Chi Zhang, who won the PokerStars $2,100 Sunday High Roller for the second time this year. Zhang, who collected his first SCOOP title during this year's series after victory in Event #22-High, defeated 'shahter98' heads-up to bank $52,676, and repeat the feat he achieved back in January. The runner-up took away
  11. Once again, the top spot in the PocketFives.com Worldwide Rankings belongs to the super Swede ‘C Darwin2’. Though he slipped just beneath the 12,000 PLB point threshold that he’d been keeping for the past couple weeks, the phenom enjoys a lead of well over 2,000 PLB points from the next closest player. ‘C Darwin2’ continues to put the pressure on those who would look to catch him with a pair of qualifying cashes this week, both resulting in five-figure scores. This included a runner-up finish in Event #131 of Winamax’s W Series for $13,553 and 193.63 PLB points. Another reoccurring theme i
  12. Perennial high stakes online tournament player 'probirs' of Hungary (ranked #11 worldwide) earned the top spot in the prestigious $2,600 buy-in "Super High Roller" tournament on Partypoker, followed by 'z4vor' in second place for $34,545. The United Kingdom's C=Conor '1_conor_b_1' Beresford might crack the top five in the PocketFives Rankings this week, thanks to a win in the partypoker $530 High Roller for $27,421. Beresford currently sits sixth. The PokerStars Sunday Million attracted well over 22,000 entrants over the weekend in a half-price event that paid out more than $2 million USD
  13. [caption width="640"] Conor Beresford is the current king of the UK rankings. Photo: PokerStars.[/caption] As an online poker powerhouse country, the UK continues to be in the conversation of producing some of the best poker players in the world. Just as the country itself has been a major world influence in popular culture, players hailing from UK have helped shape the modern-day poker landscape including old school veterans like David ‘Devilfish’ Ulliott,Neil Channing and Roland de Wolfe, high-rolling regulars like Sam Trickettand Charlie Carrell and even some of the most recognizable f
  14. Day 12 of partypoker POWERFEST saw the $5,100 Championship Super High Roller NLHE PKO event take place as well as the crowning of 11 more event champions, including Chris Moorman, just two days after he picked up a silver medal. Event #75 Super High Roller: $5,100 Championship NLHE PKO saw 198 entrants come together to create a prize pool worth $1,009,800, with a six-figure sum up top for the winner. When the action got down to three-handed play, 'dafuqisdis' took the bronze medal for $52,222 + $19,662, which left 'barrm111' and 'SexyFunTimes' left to battle for the $100,930 top prize, mega
  15. Even after the fanfare of the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure $100K Super High Roller died down with Canadian Sam Greenwood earning his sixth career seven-figure score of $1.775M, the Imperial Ballroom at the Atlantis Resort & Casino was still buzzing. Day 1B of the 2019 PCA Main Event was in full swing and, in the afterglow of the PokerStars NL Hold'em Poker Championship, players were eager for one more chance at a huge score to start the year. Along with the Main Event, the superstars of the high roller scene continued to battle it out on the felt - this time in a $50K Single-Day to
  16. For as long as 'C Darwin2's current run at the top of the PocketFives Rankings has lasted a new challenger emerged each week, rising up the rankings with the hopes of knocking the Swedish superstar off the throne. Even after a week where he picked up no qualifying cashes, 'C Darwin2' still held off every challenger and continues to hold a massive lead over the rest of the top 25. Steven ‘SvZff’ van Zadelhoff moved back up to #3 from #5 thanks to three qualifying cashes. He finished runner-up in a PokerStars $530 Bounty Builder High Roller for $11,748 and 192.35 PLB points, fourth in an Amer
  17. Whether you’re packing your bags and heading to Las Vegas to play, or booking time off work so you can stay up late and stream final tables, the World Series of Poker - the most exciting time of the poker year - is fast approaching. But which PocketFivers should you be keeping your own eyes on this summer? Here we’ll be cherrypicking some players from the United Kingdom and Ireland that we think are going to have big results at the 2018 WSOP. Chris ‘moorman1’ Moorman We haven’t just picked Moorman due to his PocketFives fame (#1 on the Online Poker All-Time Earnings Leaderboard). We’re s
  18. The ongoing dominance of the PocketFives Rankings by 'C Darwin2' appears to have no end in sight. The Swedish superstar has been #1 for all of 2018 and leads #2-ranked 'hellohellohello' by 1,835.74 points - the largest gap between any two consecutive spots inside the top 25. 'C Darwin2' picked up two qualifying cashes this past week, both coming with him standing tall at the end of a tournament. The first came in the PokerStars $215 Sunday Supersonic (NL08) when he beat out 243 other players to win $9,651 and pick up 223.52 points. Three days later he topped the 104-player field in the $530
  19. [caption width="640"] Sweden's 'C Darwin2' continues to hold court atop the PocketFives Rankings[/caption] Just last week it appeared that Brazil’s top player, Joao 'joaomathias' Mathias, was set to move into the top spot in the PocketFives rankings. It appears that ‘C Darwin2’ wanted no part of that narrative. The Swedish poker pro finished second in the PokerStars Hot $162 on Sunday to earn $10,227 but more importantly for the rankings, 186.2 PLB points. That score helped increase his lead over Mathias to 248.46 points. He has now been the #1-ranked player in the world since July 6 an
  20. [caption width="640"] Fedor Holz kicked off the High Rollers Series with a win in Event #1 (WPT photo)[/caption] The PokerStars High Rollers series wrapped up on December 4 completing a comprehensive 22-event schedule with over $10,000,000 in guarantees. If participation is an indicator of success, the High Rollers Series certainly proved there was ample space in the marketplace for such an event as 20 of the 22 events had no problem generating prize pools greater than their guarantees. As expected, the action was more than enough to bring out some of the best and brightest stars in
  21. [caption width="640"] 'C Darwin2' continues to pile up results to improve his grasp on the #1 ranking.[/caption] It seems like there’s nothing that can shake Sweden’s ‘C Darwin2’ from his perch atop the PocketFives Rankings. For the fifth straight week, ‘C Darwin 2’ holds down the #1 spot after a week that saw him add over 450 PLB points to his total thanks to a pair of wins. Outlasting 46 other players in the partypoker $530 High Roller on November 4, ‘C Darwin2’ added $9,100 to his bankroll and 153.3 PLB points to his total. He followed that up on November 9 by taking down the Poke
  22. Every week The PocketFives Milestone Report looks at the online poker players who are achieving career-best achievement or reaching new heights in the rankings Johannes ‘Greenstone25’ Korsar Eclipses $10M 2017 has been a banner year for the $10M club. It was four years ago when Chris 'Moorman1' Moorman first broke the $10 million mark and for a long time, he sat alone sat at the top of the mountain. This year though he was joined in the rarified air by four other players, including Chris ‘Big Huni’ Hunichen who hit the $10M mark just two weeks ago. Now, right on Hunichen’s heels,
  23. In the second half of July, ten PocketFives members scored their $1 million cash badges. Among them was Conor Beresford (pictured, right), who is known as 1_conor_b_1 on PocketFives and captured his new profile badge on July 18. He gleaned, "It was a nice surprise when someone messaged me telling me I'd reached the $1 million cash badge milestone." Beresford is one of eight PocketFivers with PLB scores from the walled city of York, England and earnedSupernova Elite status on PokerStars last year. "It was a grind last year playing lower-stakes Six-Max Hypers," he said, "but it was a very nic
  24. [caption width="660"] Joao ’joaosimaobh’ Simao found his way back into the top 10 this week (Danny Maxwell photo)[/caption] Seven weeks ago 'C Darwin2' overtook Joao ’joaosimaobh’ Simao for the #1 spot on the PocketFives rankings and he hasn’t relinquished it since. The Swedish grinder added to his lead this week over Joao Mathias '‘joaomathias' Baumgarten, who also gave up ground to the rest of the field. ‘C Darwin2’ built on his lead with just one cash. He took fifth in the $80,000 888poker Whale for for $5,187 and 111.94 points. He’s now over 515 PLB points ahead of Baumgarten who di
  25. [caption width="640"] 'C Darwin2' continues to do the work necessary to maintain the #1 ranking.[/caption] Events like PokerStars’ World Championship of Online Poker and partypoker’s Powerfest are designed for grinders capable of putting long hours over a concentrated amount of time. It should shock absolutely nobody that the players who inhabit the top of the PocketFives Rankings have also enjoyed success over the past couple of very busy weeks in the online poker world. Sweden’s ‘C Darwin2’, who was #1 in the world when WCOOP began three weeks ago, continues to hold onto the top spot.
