  1. [caption width="640"] There's no change at the top, but 'C Darwin2' has a new name chasing him.[/caption] The top of the PocketFives Rankings have undergone very little change over the past six weeks, with Sweden’s ‘C Darwin2’ continuing to hold on to the top spot the entire time. The group of players directly behind him continues to include the usual suspects; ‘Sheater’, ‘veeea’, Joao 'joaosimaobh' Simao, ‘lena900’ and #2-ranked Steven 'SvZff' van Zadelhoff, but there’s suddenly a new name in the mix, ‘DamageAP’. One week after posting two big wins and stretching his overall lead, ‘C Darwin2’ was put in less volume this week and failed to record a single qualifying cash. Nine of this 10 cashes this week came from his normal Sunday grind, with a 10th place finish in the 888poker Whale tournament being the closest he got to a final table. The top four spots remained the same with #5-ranked ‘veeea’ and #6-ranked ‘Sheater’ swapping spots for the third straight week. Chris ‘Big Huni’ Hunichen moved from #9 up to #7 after a Sunday that saw him win the partypoker High Roller and finish fourth in the Super High Roller for $35,000 in earnings and 440 PLB points. Despite the similarities with last week’s rankings, a new player made their debut this week. ‘DamageAP’ came in at #20 with 6,570.85 points after updating their profile with all associated screennames. In the past week alone, ‘DamageAP’ finished runner-up in a partypoker High Roller, fourth in the PokerStars Sunday Marathon, and then runner-up in the partypoker Heavyweight Title Fight Kick Off. He is now also the #1-ranked player in the Philippines. While Swedish players continue to dominate the Top 25, one of that country’s stalwarts suffered a massive drop this week. Robin 'inhoo' Ylitalo, who was #8 just a week ago, ended up at #17 this week despite the fact that he picked up 130.79 points for a fifth place in the PokerStars Daily 500 on November 14. Chris ‘Apotheosis’ Kruk worked his way up to a spot inside the Top 25. Kruk moved from #35 to #22 after his only three cashes this week all counted toward his PLB score. On Sunday, November 22, he finished 22nd in the partypoker High Roller Warm Up and third in the Super High Roller for just over $33,000 in earnings and 327.06 PLB points. He added $34,006 and 462.06 the next day after winning the partypoker High Roller.

  2. This is it. 888poker’s fall online poker series XL Eclipse has come to an end. Sunday's action included four final tournaments including the $1,000,000 guaranteed Main Event. With a total of $1.3 million on the line and the promise of six-figure sums to be won, Day 11 turned out to be the biggest of the series. ‘Romeopro33’ Wins Main Event Two of the top-ranked online players in the world battled it out for the title of XL Eclipse Main Event winner. In the end, it was Roman ‘Romeopro33’ Romanovsky who put the finishing touches on the 710 player field in Event #32: $1,000,000 Main Event. For the victory, Romanovsky earned the $187,500 first place prize, the largest of the entire XL Eclipse series. The win pushes the worldwide #9-ranked Romanovsky to over $10.5 million in lifetime earnings. His heads-up opponent was none other than the former #1-ranked Swedish pro ‘C Darwin2’ (aka ‘Isildur1337x’). The current #3-ranked grinder added $135,000 to his bankroll for his runner-up finish. Both Romanovsky and ‘C Darwin2’ are two of the only 13 players in the world to have reached over $10 million in lifetime earnings to date. After winning Event #10 for over $22,000 last week, Sweden’s ‘cuadrado12’ managed to take down his second event of the XL Eclipse series. In Event #31: $100,000 Mega Deep the Swede defeated ’nnnnn_’ heads-up to earn $27,930, adding another title to his resume and picking up an extra $1,000 for winning two of the 34 events. In Event #33: $150,000 Mini Main Event ’TAPIS_TAPIR’ booked a five-figure payday for topping the 869 player field. He walked with $34,182 for first while Malta’s ‘CraiEvryTime’ earned $24,687 for second place. In the final event of the series, Event #34: $50,000 Micro Main Event Germany’s ‘amverskltn97’ picked up $11,974.46 for the win.

In the Main Event, Romanovsky and ‘C Darwin2’ were not the only top 10 ranked pros at the final table. The #6-ranked ‘varonislv’ (aka ‘DamageAP’) finished in seventh place for $32,500. Not far behind was the #1-ranked player in the world, ‘tutten7’ (‘lena900’) who bowed out in 16th place, adding $7,000 to his over $12 million career earnings. 888poker ambassador Parker ‘tonkaaaa’ Talbot picked up his first cash in the series. The #50-ranked Talbot worked his way to 37th place for $4,000. Just three spots earlier in 40th, fellow ambassador Sofia ‘sofialovgren’ Lovgren bowed out for the same amount. PocketFivers Taking Their Shot As already displayed, PocketFivers picked up more than their fair share of Sunday’s XL Eclipse prize pool. Joining all of the top 10 ranked players that made the final table of Event #32, Malta’s ‘wisimaki’ battled into sixth place for a score of $42,500. ‘wisimaki’ is the #114-ranked player in the world and this, a career top 5 score for him, will send him rocketing into the top 100. In Event #31, the #35-ranked player in the world Pedro ‘PaDiLhA10’ Padilha finished in ninth for $2,190.30. Joining him at the final table was Sam ‘JstLikeThat’ Dearman busting in eighth for $2,940 and the #3-ranked player in Argentina, Rodrigo ’sonmonedass’ Perez who bowed out in fifth for $7,350. ‘Diffuser’ made the final table in Event #33, earning $9,570.96. In Event #34 Ben ‘DoobieFish’ Kett picked up over $2,600 for a sixth-place finish while Finland’s ‘OlofSpewie’ fell in fourth for over $4,600. They were joined by ‘Afraoc91’ from Peru who earned $2,020.36 for seventh, putting him on the cusp of $350,000 in lifetime earnings. That’s a wrap for 2018 XL Eclipse!
  3. The #1-ranked player in Uruguay also topped the October PLB race. ‘kofi89’ used consistent results and a single mammoth victory to accumulate 4,383.78 PLB points, more than 1,000 above the closest competitor, to take the monthly title. In total, ‘kofi89’ picked up eight cashes of five-figures or more. His monthly highlights included victories in the PokerStars $215 Fast Friday for $14,993, the Bounty Builder Series 23 for $31,371, the Hotter $109 for $16,389 and the partypoker Sunday Bounty Hunter High Roller for $20,896. He went on an incredible heater, seemingly taking down another big tournament every other day. That was all punctuated by his victory in the Winning Poker Network OSS $1M Main Event for $167,500 and 1,001.25 PLB points. He would have likely won the October PLB race without this score, but this certainly put him well out of reach of any other competitor. It bolstered his worldwide rank to #12, just two spots away from his career high of #10. It also puts him just under $100,000 from reaching the amazing achievement of $4 million in lifetime earnings. A distant #2 in the month was the current #1-ranked player in the world ‘lena900’ (3,226.25.). Even among his peers of dominant Swedes, ‘lena900’ is known as an online poker workhorse and this month was no different. He cashed in over 160 different events in the month of October. In total, ‘lena900’ picked up over $286,000 and added it to his $12.5 million in career online earnings, second in history only to Chris ‘moorman1’ Moorman. ‘lena900’ made waves in the PokerStars Bounty Builder Series 67 ($530 NLHE High Roller) where he took second place for $45,728 and 429.73 PLB points. He backed that up with a victory in the October 16 edition of the partypoker Bounty Hunter High Roller for another $30,474 and 339.50 PLB points. ‘lena900’ may have come in second during the month of October, however, the superstar Swede still leads in the overall 2018 PLB leaderboard, which will be a tight race between him and his countryman ‘C Darwin2’ in the final month and a half of the year. In the #3 spot for October was the #6-ranked player in the world, Latvia’s ‘DamageAP’ (2717.80). He finished the month strong first with a runner-up finish in the October 21 edition of the partypoker Sunday Main Event High Roller for $18,936 and 239.25 PLB points. He quickly followed that up with another second place result in the October 28 edition of the PokerStars $530 Bounty Builder High Roller for over $26,000 and 313.12 PLB points. In total ‘DamageAP’ managed over 100 cashes for over $188,000. Twenty-nine of those cashes were for four-figures or higher. Another name that is regularly in the conversation when it comes to PLB races is ‘C Darwin2’ (2,694.40), who landed at #4 in October. His recent push at the online tables has brought him back to being the #2-ranked player in the world, and the first real threat to ‘lena900’s reign at the top in quite some time. ‘C Darwin2’s recent rise in the rankings is thanks to a solid October. He cashed in 145 events over the month for over $194,000. His month was punctuated by his bronze medal finish in the PokerStars Bounty Builder 67 ($530 NLHE High Roller) where he picked up $32,596 and 336.93 PLB points. He also went deep in the October 21 edition of the 888poker Sunday Major tournament The $50,000 Whale when he finished as the runner-up for $16,425. Completing the top 5 of October was Robin 'Inhoo' Ylitalo (2,649.63), the third of six Swedish players who populate the top ten. Like most of his peers, it was a prolific month for ‘Inhoo’ who made the money in over 150 tournaments during the month. His largest PLB score came when he scored a victory in the October 7 edition of the partypoker Sunday Bounty Hunter High Roller for $21,936 and 280.02 PLB points. Ylitalo, a former #2-ranked player in the world, is currently sitting at #55 in the world and is speeding ahead to $10 million in career online cashes.

  4. Halfway through the final month of 2018, Sweden's 'lena900' remains atop the PocketFives 2018 PLB race. Most of the top five stayed the same, with each of the top four places having the same player as our last update, but the #5 spot did change and it now belongs to 'DamageAP.' PocketFives 2018 PLB Top 5 as of December 20 1. 'lena900' - 29,692.68 2. 'C Darwin2' - 26,944.29 3. 'hellohellohello' - 24,818.53 4. Roman 'Romeopro' Romanovsky - 21,906.06 5. 'DamageAP' - 21,254.51 Thanks to adding 1,575 points since the last update on November 14, 'lena900' now has a lead of 2,748.39 points over the rest of the field. That's a fair bit more than the lead of 2,124.20 he had on a month ago. Helping 'lena900' extend his lead was a third-place finish in the PokerStars Sunday Million on November 25 for $80,555 and 569.39 points. He also won the partypoker High Roller Bounty Hunter: $100K Gtd [Fast] on November 28 for $30,340 and 316.23 points. In second place stayed 'C Darwin2,' but he only added 950.81 points to the 1,575 for ‘lena900’ and that caused him to fall behind further. With a total of 26,944.29 points and two weeks to go in 2018, it doesn’t appear that 'C Darwin2' is going to be able to catch 'lena900' for the Yearly PLB win. Even still, 'C Darwin2' has been performing well as of late. He has cashes for $20,926 (225.84 points), $14,247 (163.58 points), $13,370 (246.98 points), $12,282 (120.94 points), and $11,000 (137.65 points) in December already. The largest of those came from a fourth-place result in the PokerStars High Roller Club: $1,050 Sunday Supersonic [6-Max, Hyper-Turbo], $150K Gtd on December 2. Russia's 'hellohellohello' stayed in third place and Roman 'Romeopro' Romanovsky stayed in fourth place, and the big change came with the addition of 'DamageAP' to the top five. 'DamageAP' overtook Ramiro 'Ramiro' Petrone for fifth place thanks to adding 846.60 points and moving to 21,254.51 points on the year. 'DamageAP' was only 119.04 points behind Petrone when we last updated and he earned 184.08 more PLB points since then. 'DamageAP' cashed for $15,504 and 187.29 points in the PokerStars High Roller Club: $1,050 Sunday Warm-Up [8-Max], $100K Gtd on November 18, he took second in the partypoker KO Series #09-HR: $100K Gtd [Mix-Max Fast] on November 19 for $16,916 and 208.63 points, and he won the PokerStars High Roller Club: $1,050 Daily Warm-Up [8-Max], $100K Gtd for $23,734 and 320.94 points on November 20. In December, 'DamageAP' won the PokerStars High Roller Club: $530 Bounty Builder HR [Progressive KO], $125K Gtd on December 1 for $13,614 and 267.39 points, and he also won the partypoker Sunday Deepstack: $100K Gtd on December 9 for $16,500 and 316.23 points. Petrone is now the one on the outside of the top five looking in with 21,189.47 points, and 'girafganger7' isn’t too far behind him with 21,119.80 points.
  5. Online poker is a global game with players logging on and grinding from every part of the world. Every country has a #1-ranked player and here we take a look at some of those that lead the way in their home countries. Pim ‘joppiesaus’ de Goede - Malta It should be no surprise that Pim ‘joppiesaus’ de Goede soared to the top of the rankings in Malta after his historic chop in the 2018 partypoker MILLIONS Online. He took home a massive $2.3 million for what will officially go down as a runner-up finish. Obviously, that is far and away a career-high cash for de Goede, one that will be very difficult to surpass (online or live). The score helped him not just to the #1 ranking in Malta, but also sent him screaming up the rankings to a career-high ranking of #12 in the world. He bypassed both the $4 million and $5 million badges to now sit at a lifetime total of $6.276M in total earnings. For de Goede though, this was not simply a lucky run of cards. He’s been a PocketFiver since January 2010 (coming up on nine years) and is a true grinder with nearly 6,000 cashes in his career. One might think that after a life-changing score like in the MILLIONS Online, a break would be in order. Not for de Goede, who has been racking up cashes throughout the month of December including a 1386th place finish in the partypoker Sunday Bounty Hunter for $8. That’s not going to move the needle like his fourth-place finish in the December 14 edition PokerStars High Roller Club for over $11,000 but it does go to show that even after a $2.3M score, a grinder's work is never done. Roman ‘Romeopro’ Romanovsky - Ukraine Despite taking a major part of 2018 off, Ukraine’s Roman ‘Romeopro’ Romanovsky has remained as the #1 player in his county and a mainstay at the top of the worldwide rankings. With impressive performances on 888poker all year long, Romanovsky has emerged as the PocketFiver with the most earning on that site in 2018. Case in point, he took down December 2 edition of the Sunday $50,000 Whale for $26,250 as a part of his over $400,000 worth of earnings on that site. That victory came after taking nearly two months off late in the year, having not recorded an online cash in the months of October or November. Prior to that, Romanovsky earned $187,000 for his win in the 888poker XL Eclipse $1M Main Event. However, if Romanovsky cares to keep his #1 status in Ukraine, he won’t be able to take much more time off as Ukraine’s #2, ‘Palyaaa’ is right behind him in the standings, less than 300 PLB points away. Sam ‘pudge714’ Greenwood - Canada When not traveling the world competing in biggest buy-in tournaments he can find, Sam ‘pudge714’ Greenwood spends his time crushing online. He’s currently the #1-ranked online player in Canada as well as ranked #20 in the world, a career-high ranking for the accomplished player. Greenwood’s uptick in the rankings is directly correlated to his participation in the PokerStars High Roller Club events. Greenwood has been packing on the PLB points with deep finishes in these events all month long. His highlights include a runner-up finish in the December 2 edition of the $530 Sunday 500 for $26,891 and 296.52 PLB points and an outright victory in the December 3 edition of the $530 Daily 500 for another $14,273 and 260.77 PLB points. Both of those results were after the month of November when he picked up another seven PLB qualifying cashes. Greenwood also his a new major milestone, surpassing $6 million in lifetime online earnings to go along with his over $12 million in live earnings. He may be able to hold the top spot in Canada until the end of the year as he holds a 700 PLB point lead over former top-10 ranked Connor ‘blanconegro’ Drinan. ‘DamageAP’ - Latvia 2018 has been a good one for Latvia’s #1-ranked 'DamageAP'. Not only did he climb to the top of his country but he crashed the elite ranks of the worldwide top-10 and is currently sitting at a career-high ranking of #4 in the world. 'DamageAP' is name-checked as one of the best in the world right now. One look at his results paints a picture of why. He is constantly in the mix in the biggest buy-in tournaments online and consistently putting up big-time results. Take for instance his day on October 28. At the same time, he finished in fifth place in the PokerKing Million Dollar Sunday Encore for $57,000 and also binked a runner-up finish in the $530 Bounty Builder High Roller on PokerStars for another $26,000. Since that time 'DamageAP' has posted eight five-figure cashes, including a runner-up finish in the December 17 edition of the PokerStars High Roller Club $530 Daily Supersonic for over $12,000. He’s closing in on his $5 million badge (roughly $250K to go). He trails the #3-ranked ‘hellohellohello’ by roughly 1200 PLB points, but holds a massive 3800 PLB points lead in the country of Latvia over Guntis ‘lovefee’ Aleskins, so it’s unlikely he will be losing that title anytime soon. Arturs ‘Artschgamble’ Scerbaks - Germany Another player enjoying new career highs in Germany’s #1-ranked Arturs ‘Artschgamble’ Scerbaks. Scerbaks not only takes over the #1 spot in his country from ‘nilsef’ but is currently sitting at #30 in the world. It goes to show that good things happen when you win a tournament like the PokerStars Sunday Million, as Scerbaks did on December 2. The $154,532 first place prize is another career-high for the German and the 1,069.67 PLB points helped him rocket up the rankings. Scerbaks recently has been playing as a mid-stakes grinder but has also taken some recent shots at the high buy-ins pay off recently. He scored a victory in the November 24 edition PokerStars High Roller Club $530 Bounty Builder for $13,805 + bounties and also picked up another nice score in the December 5 edition of the PokerStars $1,050 Daily Cooldown for $8,941. The Sunday Million cash helped push Scerbaks up over $2 million for his career.
  6. The online poker alias of 'Lena900' is a name that regular PocketFives readers will be familiar with, mainly because the Swedish player can be seen to be battling it out in the highest stakes online poker tournaments have to offer week-after-week. For the past two years, 'Lena900' has just been pipped to the top of PocketFives.com Yearly PLB by his compatriot 'C.Darwin2', but 2018 was the year this all changed as 'Lena900' took the glory in five major festival events to sit at the summit of online poker. 'Lena900' finished 2018 with a total PLB score of 29,952.68, and had a clear gap over runner-up 'C.Darwin2' with 26,992.73. 'Lena900' recorded seven of his top ten online cashes over the past 12 months which included three victories. On May 16th, he reached the final table of the partypoker Powerfest $10,300 #53-SHR: $2M Gtd [Championship Event - PKO] event which came with a staggering $430,047 first-place prize. The Swede battled his way to a heads-up match against partypoker ambassador Kristen 'Krissyb24' Bicknell, and ultimately was the last player standing to pick up his biggest online score to date. But his day wasn't done with the Swede picking up a second PokerStars SCOOP title of the year as well in the #39-High: $1,050 NLO8 [6-Max] event. Fast forward to September and 'Lena900' added a second partypoker Powerfest title to his name as well as a PokerStars WCOOP victory. The Swede came through a 194 player-field to win the Powerfest $5,200 #062-SHR: $1M Gtd [Championship Event] for $203,900, as well as picking up the gold medal in the WCOOP-27-M: $530 PLO [6-Max] for $58,228. And just over a week later, there was to be another Powerfest Championship Event final table for 'Lena900', after he achieved a third-place finish in the event #095-SHR for $157,560. Back in 2014, 'Lena900' helped kick-start his online career with a fourth-place finish in the prestigious PokerStars Sunday Million and turned $215 into $81,366. Well in 2018, he was able to go one place better and ended November with a bronze medal worth $80,555. A sensational second half of 2018, helped propel 'Lena900' up to second place on the Online Poker All-Time Earnings Leaderboard with over $13.6m and closed the gap on Chris Moorman who leads the way with $15.6m. As for 'Lena900's closest rivals, 'C.Darwin2' outlasted a field of 122 players to win the PokerStars High Rollers 07: $10,300 NLHE [8-Max], $1M Gtd event for $267,406, and also took down the PokerStars Turbo Series 70: $5,200 NLHE [8-Max, High Roller] for $161,411. A silver medal came in the 888 Poker XL Eclipse #32 - $1,000,000 Gtd Main Event for $135,000, after 'C.Darwin2' was pipped to the title by 2018 PLB fourth-place finisher Roman 'Romeopro' Romanovsky who banked $187,500 for victory. PLB third-place finisher 'hellohellohello' from Russia beat his best online score three-times throughout 2018, which included victory in the PokerStars Sunday Million for $160,888 during August. Also securing their place in the top ten was Hungary's Andras 'probirs' Nemeth, Latvia's 'DamageAP', Argentina's Ramiro 'ramastar88' Petrone, 'Girafganger7', Sweden's 'Ariados', and the U.K.'s Patrick 'pleno1' Leonard. Nemeth took down the PokerStars SCOOP-14-H: $25,000 NLHE [8-Max, High Roller] for an eye-watering $576,087, with Romanovsky taking the silver medal for a cool $442,299. 'DamageAP's top score came in the Powerfest #002-HR: $500K Gtd [PKO] event after defeating a 358 player-field to bank $94,546. Petrone started the year fantastically when he took down the Powerfest #48-H: $1M Gtd Main Event for in February $195,720 and followed it up with a second Powerfest title in September, as well as a SCOOP and WCOOP title. Fellow high-stakes crusher 'GirafGanger7' saw 2018 reward him with another WCOOP title after he won the WCOOP-55-M: $530 NLHE [8-Max, Turbo, Progressive KO] for $55,846. 'Ariados' had a day to remember on February 4th after a third-place finish in the PokerStars $215 Sunday Million 12th Anniversary $10M Gtd event saw them turn $215 into a career-best $539,554. The Swede followed up this result with several five and six-figure scores including a Powerfest title. And completing the top ten was former world ranked #1 Leonard, who had an imposing end to the year with multiple scores in the PokerStars Winter and High Roller series, having earlier won three Powerfest titles including the #46-High: $1M Gtd NLH event for $207,978.

  7. The PocketFives Milestone Report looks at the online poker players who are achieving career-best achievement or reaching new heights in the rankings. It’s been a minute since we’ve checked in on the progress of some of the PocketFives community and, in the past month or so, there have been plenty of new major milestones to celebrate. So, let’s dive in and take a look at some of the accomplishments of the online grinders who are putting in time on the felt and reaping the rewards. Major Moves At $10M+ In the upper echelons of earnings, there are plenty of players who continue to climb the ranks at the start of 2019. Johannes 'Greenstone25' Korsar Hits $12M One such player is Sweden’s Johannes ‘Greenstone25’ Korsar who soared past the $12M lifetime earning mark. He’s had a remarkable start to the year with multiple five-figure scores in January. However, it was his runner-up finish in Event 57 of the PokerStars Winter Series ($2,100 No Limit Hold’em Main Event) for $260,391 that pushed him into third on the online All-Time Earnings list, right behind ‘lena900’ ($13.8M) and Chris ‘moorman1’ Moorman ($15.6M). Korsar currently has $12.375M in total career earnings and sits as the #26-ranked player in the world. Not far behind Korsar are a handful of pros that used the end of 2018 and start of 2019 to pull themselves up over the $11M mark. Getting Crowded At $11M Former #1-ranked player Chris ‘Getting Daize’ Oliver, a PocketFiver since 2007, is one of those pros. He recently finished as the runner-up in the partypoker Sunday High Roller Bounty Hunter for $16,907 but had been putting together five-figure scores for the better part of two months to push his lifetime total to over $11.2M. Oliver has some elite company when it comes to newly minted $11M winners. Swedish superstars Andreas ‘r4ndomr4gs’ Berggren and ’Sheater’ just recently jumped over the milestone. As did Ukranian crusher Roman ‘Romeopro’ Romanovsky. Romanovsky, currently the #4-ranked player in the world, has been putting in plenty of volume and connecting with big scores, especially on partypoker where he recently took fifth in the $1M GTD Big Game for $58,025. Finally, another Swedish standout, the worldwide #20-ranked ‘inhoo’, joined the $10M club. He has racked up 15 podium finishes in the month of January, including a silver medal finish in Event 38 of the PokerStars Winter Series ($1,050 Pot Limit Omaha Six Max) for $27,983. Top Ranked Players Hitting New Highs Some of the biggest names in the online game have also started the year by eclipsing landmark milestones. Brazil’s #1-ranked Joao ‘joaosimaobh’ Simao has been off to a fast start in 2019. The partypoker ambassador has surpassed the $8M mark online and used his first-place finish in a December partypoker Sunday High Roller Bounty Hunter to add over $53,000 to his career totals of nearly $8.2M. Joining him at the $8M mark is longtime PocketFiver J.D. ‘jdpc27’ Wheeler, who now plays out of Mexico. He accomplished the task this week with a top 100 finish in the reduced buy-in $109 PokerStars Sunday Million for $1,538. Connor ‘blanconegro’ Drinan was victorious in Event 28 of the PokerStars Winter Series ($2,100 No Limit Hold’em Eight Max PKO) for $69,830 to help him achieve $7M in lifetime earnings. Joining him in recently hitting that number are ‘breeth’ and former #1-ranked player Caio ‘pessagno’ Pessagno. December and January were huge for both Sam ‘Pudge714’ Greenwood and Pim ‘joppiesaus’ De Goede. Greenwood not only had an amazing PCA $100K Super High Roller victory but he’s also been crushing the PokerStars High Roller Club online. De Goede chopped the historic $20M GTD MILLIONS Online for a historic $2.3M score. Thanks to their online success, both are now members of the $6M lifetime earnings club. Top 10-Ranked, $5M Winners A pair of players who have recently spent a considerable amount of time as top-10 ranked players are also newly-minted $5M men. Worldwide #8-ranked 'DamageAP' from Latvia took fourth in the PokerStars High Roller Club $530 Daily Supersonic for $7,013 this month to hit the $5 million mark. At the same time #10-ranked Argentian superstar Ramiro ‘Ramiro’ Petrone booked a runner-up result in Event 55 in the PokerStars Winter Series $1,050 Sunday Warm-Up for $78,433 to help him hit the new high. Joining the pair at $5M lifetime is also Sweden’s ‘DeathbyQuads’, Troy ‘iamthedeck ftw’ Quenneville and Ireland’s #4-ranked Tomas ‘luckymo32’ Geleziunas. Is Anatoly Filatov Ready For The Top 10? It takes quite an effort to break through to the ranks of the PocketFives top 10 and partypoker ambassador Anatoly ‘nl_profit’ Filatov has been producing the results to put him in position. This week Filatov has, once again, reached a new career high ranking. This week he sits at #11 in the world and is on the doorstep of making his move into the elite rankings of the top 10. Next week may be his debut. Only two other players have reached career-high rankings this week as Russia's ‘Futti18’ climbed three spots to break into the top 25 at #25 and Bulgaria's top-ranked pro ‘cskar4e1’ jumped one spot to #50.
  8. One of online poker's most popular players, 'girafganger7,' scooped the 2019 PocketFives February PLB title. Girafganger7's February included 124 cashes for $454,604 in prize money and a leaderboard-topping 4,867.51 points. Girafganger7's largest score of February came in the GGPoker Sunday Blade $5K on February 25. In that event, he took third place for $52,437 and 314.86 points. Girafganger7 also had scores of $45,267 and $45,030 in February, with both of those coming in tournaments on partypoker. With the month of February he had, girafganger7 surged past $8 million in online tournament earnings and now boasts more than $8.38 million in earnings total. All told, girafganger7's February was 569.66 points better than the competition, with January PLB winner Roman 'Romeopro' Romanovsky coming in second place. Although he didn't win the monthly PLB title for the second month of 2019, Romanovsky had another solid showing. His biggest score in February was a $105,500 third-place finish in the The Big Game: $1M Gtd. on partypoker. He also recorded scores of $32,030 and $31,771 on GGPoker. Conor '1_conor_b_1' Beresford placed third on the February PLB, tallying 4,041.66 points. His largest score was a sixth-place finish in the PokerStars Turbo Series 54: $5,200 NLHE [8-Max, High Roller] for $54,106 and 336.12 points. He also took second in the PokerStars Turbo Series 100: $530 NLHE for $36,954 and 357.73 points and third in the partypoker Turbo Series 100: $530 NLHE for $32,400 and 253.42 points. Girafganger7, Romanovsky, and Beresford were the only three players to tally more than 4,000 monthly PLB points. Rounding out the leaderboard's top five were 'dartazzzz' with 3,984.01 points and 'lena900' with 3,914.57 points. PocketFives February PLB Leaderboard RANK PLAYER PLB POINTS 1 'girafganger7' 4,867.51 2 Roman 'Romeopro' Romanovsky 4,297.85 3 Conor '1_conor_b_1' Beresford 4,041.66 4 'dartazzzz' 3,984.01 5 'lena900' 3,914.57 6 'inhoo' 3,859.73 7 Ramiro 'Ramiro' Petrone 3,651.31 8 'papan9_p$' 3,616.58 9 'DamageAP' 3,534.30 10 Sami 'LarsLuzak' Kelopuro 3,282.27  
  9. Alex Foxen won the PocketFives May PLB title. Yes, that Alex Foxen. The live poker crusher, high-rolling sensation that is also the current (and continuing) record holder as the longest-standing #1-ranked player on the GPI. Foxen (5,103.05 PLB points) has been on an absolute rocketship flight up through the online poker rankings, currently sitting at a career-high mark of #7 in the world. Much of his ability to break into the elite ranks of the top 10 came thanks to his massive month of May. In between lining up bracelet bets for the World Series of Poker, Fox spent most of May, in Canada, grinding online. He put up 98 cashes, 13 of which resulted in five-figures cashes. Of course, the highlight of Foxen’s May was his title run during PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker where he won Event #54-H ($530 NLHE Eight Max Zoom) for $68,904. He also added a partypoker KO Series title to his online poker resume by taking down Event #29-HR for $64,916 on the same day he finished in third place in Event #27-HR for another $36,885. Foxen racked up 20 PLB-qualifying results for an enormous total of over 5,100 PLB points. To put that total in perspective, if he’d never played a single online tournament and turned in this performance in a single month, he’d be instantly ranked in the top 150 players in the world. But add that number to his running total, and now he’s crashed through to the top 10. But the online grind is just that - a grind. If a player wants to stay atop the rankings they need to continuously play online. With the World Series of Poker upon us and Foxen in Las Vegas grinding bracelet events rather than Sunday Majors, it’s unlikely he’ll be able to repeat this performance in June. But that doesn't mean he couldn't if he wanted to. PocketFives May Monthly PLB Leaderboard RANK PLAYER POINTS 1 Alex 'SploogeLuge' Foxen 5103.05 2 Pablo 'pabritz' Brito Silva 4905.15 3 'C Darwin2' 4793.56 4 Patrick 'pleno1' Leonard 4733.95 5 'DamageAP' 4725.86 6 Kristen 'krissyb24' Bicknell 4580.92 7 'Discoovery' 4507.39 8 'lena900' 4483.96 9 Kahle 'roflshove' Burns 4273.7 10 Andras 'probirs' Nemeth 4259.65 Nearly equally impressive was the month had by Brazil’s Pablo ‘pabritz’ Brito Silva (4905.15) who found himself only 197.90 points behind Foxen. The spring online series schedules from PokerStars and partypoker gave everyone a chance to load up on tournaments and pick up hefty amounts of PLB points and Silva did just that. He soared to a career-high ranking of #22 in the world and #2 for the month of May. Silva accumulated 18 PLB point qualifying scores but none were bigger than his current online career-defining victory in PokerStars SCOOP Event #31-H ($2,100 NLHE $1M GTD) where he took a home an all-time high score of $249,850 and a massive 1,200,83 PLB point boost. The Swedish Sensation, ’C Darwin2’ (4793.56) took third on the Monthly PLB leaderboard in May thanks to some spectacular scores during the spring series. Like the rest of the Swedish crowd that he runs with (‘lena900’, ‘Sheater’, ‘Greenstone25’) ‘C Darwin2’ is all about volume and in the month of May he didn’t disappoint. He recorded nearly twice as many cashes as Foxen playing just about every tournament he could register for. Even though he was slipping down the rankings for the better part of the month, on May 20 he took down the partypoker KO Series Event #27 ($1M GTD Championship Event) for over $215,000 and 1004.89 PLB points. Anyone who may have thought that ‘C Darwin2’s time in the upper echelons of the rankings had passed better look again, he’s currently sitting ranked #4 in the world. Just before he headed to Las Vegas to grind the WSOP, Patrick ‘pleno1’ Leonard (4733.95) was looking to get back to #1 in world. He almost got there too, climbing back as high as number #3 thanks to a solid month of May. Leonard takes the #4 spot on the May PLB leaderboard after putting in work nearly every day during the large online spring series. The partypoker ambassador picked up two KO Series titles including a win in Event #4-HR for $61,765 and 550,40 PLB points and another in Event #11-HR for another $49,738. His victory in the May 19 edition of the PokerStars High Roller Club $1,050 Sunday Warm-up also brought him $57,191 and 551.36 PLB points. Latvia’s ‘DamageAP’ (4725.86) completes the top 5 in May picking up a career-high online score of $175,730 for his victory in the partypoker KO Series $1M GTD Championship Event. He also racked up 1,041.37 PLB points with the win and he currently sits as the #10 ranked player in the world.
