  1. On Sunday, Dan djk123Kelly (pictured) carried a major chip lead into the final table of a $1,500 Limit Hold'em tournament and closed it out, capturing his second World Series of Poker bracelet. Kelly, who lost the chip lead for much of the final table but managed to claw back, is over $2.2 million in career WSOP earnings and fresh off a solid 2013 WSOP that saw him cash ten times and reach two final tables. --- PocketFives' WSOP coverage is brought to you by Real Gaming, a regulated online poker site in Nevada. Play Real Gaming, real money poker on any device. Play now for Final Table Freerolls. Skip straight to the final table and win cash daily. --- Kelly earned $195,000 for the win and told WSOP officials that it was "probably hard to top the first [bracelet in a $25,000 No Limit Hold'em Six-Max event] since it was my first World Series and a $25,000 [event], but this one is still pretty cool." He candidly added, "It's always nice to win. It's frustrating getting sixth and fifth." The Limit Hold'em tournament marked Kelly's seventh career WSOP final table. In the last hand, Yegor Tsurikov got his chips in before the flop with 10-6 offsuit, while Kelly had J-10. The board rolled out 7-8-7-Q-9, giving Kelly a queen-high straight and the title. He Tweeted after the event had wrapped up, "Won it woooooooo!!" Among those responding was fellow PocketFiver Lauren locoenlacabeza Kling, who posted on Twitter, "Yes!!! Congrats!!! Amazing and very well deserved. So happy for you!" With Kelly's win, PocketFivers are up to 14 WSOP bracelets this year through 43 events and are on pace for 21 this year. The all-time record for bracelets won by the PocketFives community is 23, set in 2011. PocketFivers got 18 bracelets in 2012, another 18 in 2013, and have captured 131 bracelets since 2004. Here's how the tournament's final table cashed out: 1st Place: Dan djk123Kelly - $195,167 2nd Place: Yegor Tsurikov - $120,501 3rd Place: Brandon Shack-Harris - $78,335 4th Place: Sean Berrios - $57,536 5th Place: Jesse Katz- $42,857 6th Place: David Chiu - $32,338 7th Place: Jeff Lisandro - $24,683 8th Place: Bryce Landier - $19,051 9th Place: Ron Burke - $14,856 Elsewhere at the Rio in Las Vegas, the site of the annual WSOP, Jordan iMsoLucky0Morgan (pictured) is fourth in chips entering the final day of Event #44, a $1,500 No Limit Hold'em tournament. Morgan, who signed up for PocketFives in 2005, held the chip lead at the dinner break on Sunday. Morgan busted Loni Harwood after winning a race with A-Q against J-J by flopping a pair of aces. That hand boosted his stack by 239,000 and he ended the day with 773,000. The field is trailing the tournament's top dog right now, Brandon Ageloff, who bagged just over one million in chips. First place is scheduled to make $478,000 and there are 15 players left: 1. Brandon Ageloff - 1,007,000 2. Ray WirdPair Foley - 993,000 3. Jason Johnson - 779,000 4.

  2. The main storyline on Sunday at the Rio in Las Vegas, the site of the 2014 World Series of Poker, was a potential bracelet #14 for Phil Hellmuth, America's favorite poker brat. Hellmuth went heads-up with five-time bracelet winner Ted Forrest (pictured) in a $1,500 Razz event (#7). --- PocketFives' WSOP coverage is brought to you by Real Gaming, a regulated online poker site in Nevada. Play Real Gaming, real money poker on any device. Play now for the real royal bonus and win $1,000. --- Forrest was heads-up for a bracelet for the first time in a half-dozen years, while Hellmuth was searching for his first since a WSOP Europe Main Event win in 2012. As WSOP coverage put it, "What was a fairy tale conclusion for Forrest marked the 10th runner-up finish for Hellmuth, who was appearing at his 49th career final table, by far the most of anyone in history. This was Forrest's first win at the WSOP since 2004 and the first to take place at the Rio." Twitter was alive with poker players railing Hellmuth, who graciously Tweeted on Sunday, "Battling one of the greatest Razz players ever (Ted Forest) heads-up for a WSOP Razz bracelet! We both own 1 Razz bracelet." When Hellmuth had officially taken second, he wrote, "Congrats to my old friend Ted Forrest on winning #WSOPRazz tourn. If I had to lose to someone, I'm glad it was Teddy. 2nd place for me." Forrest's win was worth $121,000, while Hellmuth earned $74,000. Hellmuth started the final table second in chips and began heads-up play with a 2:1 advantage, but after several hours, Forrest earned his sixth WSOP bracelet. Five bracelet winners were seated at a very tough final table, which cashed out as follows: 1st Place: Ted Forrest - $121,196 2nd Place: Phil Hellmuth - $74,848 3rd Place: Greg Pappas - $48,275 4th Place: David Bach - $34,979 5th Place: Brock t soprano Parker - $25,717 6th Place: Brandon Cantu - $19,183 7th Place: Yuebin Guo - $14,517 8th Place: Kevin kice32 Iacofano - $11,143 Also at the Rio, a $10,000 Limit Omaha High-Low Split Eight or Better tournament began on Sunday with a field of 178. After 67 had been eliminated, longtime PocketFiver Dan djk123Kelly (pictured) stood tall over the pack with a stack of 146,700, slightly ahead of fellow PocketFives stalwart Jeff yellowsub Williams. Williams knows what he'll be up against on Monday when play resumes at 2:00pm Pacific Time for Day 2, Tweeting, "Bagged 144k in the WSOP 10k Omaha Hi/Lo, good for 2nd to the legend @djk123poker." Kelly has nearly $2 million in career WSOP earnings, the bulk of which came four years ago in a $25,000 No Limit Hold'em Six-Max title for $1.3 million. Williams has nearly $900,000 in WSOP cashes, but hasn't appeared at a final table since the same year Kelly won his bracelet.

  3. World Series of Poker bracelet number two could be well within the grasp of longtime PocketFiver Dan djk123Kelly (pictured), who has a commanding lead in Event #43, a $1,500 Limit Hold'em tournament. Kelly has 734,000 in chips entering the event's final day on Sunday, leading former World Poker Tour Championship winner David Chiu's second place stack of 473,000. --- PocketFives' WSOP coverage is brought to you by Real Gaming, a regulated online poker site in Nevada. Play Real Gaming, real money poker on any device. Play now for Final Table Freerolls. Skip straight to the final table and win cash daily. --- Kelly has already logged a final table this year in a $10,000 Limit Omaha High-Low Split Eight or Better tournament and cashed for $41,000. His blockbuster score complete with a bracelet came four years ago in a $25,000 No Limit Hold'em Six-Max eventfor over $1.3 million. Kelly, at that point a sponsored pro of DoylesRoom, had the likes of Doyle Brunson rooting him onto victory. This author was also in attendance in what was a very rowdy atmosphere. The soft-spoken Kelly Tweeted at the end of play on Saturday at the Rio in Las Vegas, the site of the annual WSOP, "1/9 going into the ft of $1,500 LHE tomorrow at 2." Joining him are Chiu, who won the WPT Championship in 2008, and Jeff Lisandro, who has not only gotten into a spat with Brandon Cantu at this year's WSOP, but is also making his second final table of the 2014 series. Lisandro has the third shortest stack at 177,000, but we wouldn't count him out just yet. Here are the nine players left: 1. Dan djk123Kelly - 734,000 2. David Chiu - 473,000 3. Sean Berrios - 373,000 4. Yegor Tsurikov - 361,000 5. Jesse Katz - 294,000 6. Brandon Shack-Harris - 269,000 7. Jeff Lisandro - 177,000 8. Ron Burke - 166,000 9. Bryce Landier - 112,000 Also scheduled to play down to a winner on Sunday is Event #42, a $5,000 Pot Limit Omaha Six-Max event. A baker's dozen of players remain led by Phil Laak (pictured), who bagged 1.08 million on Saturday, the lone person with a seven-figure chip stack. Two Canadians are hot on his heels: Vancouver's Joseph Leung and Toronto's Sorel Imper1um Mizzi. One of the most talked-about hands of Event #42 thus far didn't involve Lock, Leung, or Mizzi, but rather Phil Hellmuth, who was one of the first eliminations of Saturday's play. Hellmuth was all-in with top set on the flop, well ahead of David Bakes Baker's pair of aces. The turn improved Hellmuth to a full house, but Baker hit a better full house on the river to bust Hellmuth and, according to WSOP.com, "throw him into one of his trademark fits." Never a dull moment. Here are the 13 players remaining in the PLO Six-Max event. The blinds were at 5,000-10,000 when play halted: 1. Phil Laak - 1,087,000 2. Joseph Leung - 818,000 3. Sorel Imper1umMizzi - 735,000 4. Ryan Schmidt - 720,000 5. Brant OURounder Hale - 583,000 6. Darius Studdard - 555,000 7. Michael Drummond - 546,000 8. Demis Hassabis - 515,000 9. Richard Ashby - 426,000 10. Kory s00tedj0kers Kilpatrick - 333,000 11. David Bakes Baker - 308,000 12. Michael Tabarelli - 258,000 13. Brandon Crawford - 214,000 Stay tuned to PocketFives for the latest WSOP news, brought to you by Real Gaming, a regulated online poker site in Nevada. Want the latest poker headlines and interviews?

  4. Brian Hastings(pictured), known on PocketFives as Stinger885, won his second career World Series of Poker bracelet on Saturday night in a $10,000 Seven Card Stud event. His reward was $239,000, which came after outlasting a rock solid final table in which the top three finishers were all members of the PocketFives community. --- Tournament Poker Edgeis the only poker training site dedicated exclusively to MTTs and features over 1,000 training videos, blogs, articles, podcasts and a dedicated strategy forum for members. Check Tournament Poker Edge out on Twitter. --- The longtime nosebleed-stakes online poker player told WSOP officials when all was said and done, "This tournament is more meaningful because it's what a lot of the older, more established players played for many years. Anytime you win, it feels good… I felt really good coming into this year's series. I came in with some high expectations. I thought I was in a very good place, with my girlfriend here with me and really on top of my A-game." Seven years ago, Hastings posted online that he was "totally lost" at Stud and was looking for books to help him learn the game. Now, he's won the most prestigious Stud tournament around. At the start of the 2015 WSOP, Hastings was quite active on Twitter making bets with other members of the poker world. WSOP officials said, in fact, that he made some "substantial wagers" that apparently mean over $400,000 is coming his way: "It's about twice what the top prize money was for this event," he said. "But I won't say who it was with." He offered 3.3-to-1 to win a bracelet. Hastings now has over $1.1 million in WSOP winnings and recorded his fifth cash in Las Vegas this year. The 26-year-old's other bracelet came in 2012 in the Heads-Up No Limit Hold'em Championship and was worth $371,000. He now has 14 WSOP cashes and seven final tables. Second place went to PocketFiver Scott BigRiskky Clements (pictured), who recorded his second final table at this year's WSOP. Clements made his 40th career WSOP cash, his first in Seven Card Stud. He already owns two Omaha bracelets. Dan djk123Kelly took third place in the $10,000 Seven Card Stud event. Like Clements, Kelly has two WSOP bracelets, including a mammoth $1.1 million hit in 2010 for winning a $25,000 No Limit Hold'em Six-Max event. He used to be a staple of the PocketFives Rankings and was ranked #1 as recently as 2009. Here's how the final table cashed out: 1. Brian Stinger885Hastings - $239,518 2. Scott BigRiskkyClements - $148,001 3. Dan djk123Kelly - $92,691 4. Chris George - $67,114 5. Oxana Cummings - $52,453 6. Harley Thrower - $41,829 7. Mikhail Semin - $33,967 8. Max Pescatori - $28,031 Stay tuned to PocketFives for the latest WSOP coverage, brought to you by Tournament Poker Edge. Want the latest poker headlines and interviews?

  5. Eight players remain in the World Series of Poker's $10,000 Seven Card Stud Championship, including three brand name members of the online poker community. Brian Stinger885 Hastings (pictured), a longtime fixture of the poker and daily fantasy sports worlds, leads the way with a stack of 770,000. Hastings was a top-five chip leader after Day 1 and has already cashed in three WSOP events this year. --- Tournament Poker Edgeis the only poker training site dedicated exclusively to MTTs and features over 1,000 training videos, blogs, articles, podcasts and a dedicated strategy forum for members. Check Tournament Poker Edge out on Twitter. --- In order to score his first WSOP win, Hastings must outlast three bracelet winners: Max Pescatori (three bracelets, sixth place), Scott BigRiskkyClements (two bracelets, fourth place), and Dan djk123 Kelly (pictured, two bracelets, seventh place). Clements and Pescatori have already made final tables at the 2015 WSOP. Kelly has $2.2 million in career WSOP winnings across 30 cashes. Hastings has a lot on the line in addition to the bracelet, as WSOP coverage explained, "He is currently ranked #23 in the 2015 WSOP Player of the Year standings and is guaranteed at least another 245.15 points for eighth place, which would put him in the top 10 on the POY leaderboard." Here's how the final eight will stack up when play resumes at 2pm Pacific Time on Saturday: 1. Brian Stinger885Hastings - 770,000 2. John Thrower - 426,000 3. Mikhail Semin - 399,000 4. Scott BigRiskkyClements - 384,000 5. Chris George - 251,000 6. Max Pescatori - 207,000 7. Dan djk123Kelly - 172,000 8. Oxana Cummings - 128,000 Hastings Tweeted after Friday's play had ended, "Bagged either 769k or 770k depending on whether I win the chip race. Probably 770k #yupiwonit #bracelethunting #WSOP27 Restart 2pm." He scored a double knockout to surge into the lead when 16 remained and said, "237k got a double KO! 17 left 16 pay avg 160k #pain." Pain indeed. Stay tuned to PocketFives for the latest WSOP coverage, brought to you by Tournament Poker Edge. Want the latest poker headlines and interviews?

  6. [caption width="640"] Shaun Deeb joined Paul Volpe as the only former #1-ranked players to win a bracelet this summer[/caption] Shaun Deeb beat out a stacked final table towin the $1,500 Seven Card Stud event and earn the second bracelet of his career and second for former PocketFives #1-ranked players. Deeb's victory was one of just 21 cashes by this group in the last week. They've now recorded 75 WSOP cashes this summer earning a total of $870,602. Here are the highlights from the last week. Shaun 'shaundeeb' Deeb2016 WSOP cashes: 5 2016 WSOP earnings: $162,112 Shaun Deeb became just the second former PocketFives #1-ranked players to win a bracelet in 2016 when he took down the $1,500 Seven Card Stud event last week. He beat out a final table that included former bracelet winners Cory Zeidman, John Monnette, Eugene Katchalov, Max Pescatori and Adam Friedman to win 111,101. With $162,112 in winnings, Deeb now has the second most of any former #1-ranked player behind Paul Volpe. That appears to be as close as he's going to get though as an urgent family matter made for an early end to his WSOP. Dan Kelly2016 WSOP cashes: 10 2016 WSOP earnings: $62,625 Dan Kelly is one of just three players to have cashed 10 times so far at the 2016 WSOP along with Jason Mercier and Ryan LaPlante. Four of Kelly's cashes came in the last week. He finished 714th in the Monster Stack, 236th in the $1,000 No Limit Hold'em, 78th in the $5,000 Turbo and 114th in the $3,000 No Limit Hold'em event. He's averaging a cash every three days so far this summer. Paul 'paulgees81' Volpe2016 WSOP cashes: 6 2016 WSOP earnings: $253,682 With one bracelet already in the bag, Paul Volpe continues to lead the group of former PocketFives #1-ranked players in terms of money earned. He's now made $253,682 this summer - 29% of all the money earned by this group. In the last week he recorded two more cashes including a close call in the $10,000 Six Max Championship where Volpe finished 10th. That put another $49,677 into his total earnings. He followed that up with a 52nd place finish in the $5,000 Turbo for $9,566. Patrick 'pleno1' Leonard2016 WSOP cashes: 4 2016 WSOP earnings: $57,755 With just one cash in the first four weeks, Patrick Leonard wasn't having the best WSOP. That may have turned around in the last week as Leonard scored two five-figure scores. He finished 26th in the $10,000 Six Max Championship for $20,767 and then 14th in the $5,000 Turbo event for another $22,119. Steve 'gboro780' Gross2016 WSOP cashes: 6 2016 WSOP earnings: $57,830 After four cashes over the first four weeks, Steve Gross found two in the last week including his biggest of the summer. Gross finished 11th - one spot behind Volpe - in the $10,000 Six Max Championship for $38,268. He then made it through his first table in the $1,500 No Limit Hold'em Shootout before busting for a 96th place finish and a $4,955 cash. Other NotablesWhile Fedor 'crownupguy' Holz has only cashed twice in WSOP events for a little over $26,000, he's done just fine away from the WSOP tables. Since May 27th he's cashed four times in high roller events, including the $300,000 buy-in Super High Roller Bowl, for a total of $4,928,000. Kevin 'bel0wab0ve' Saul finally hit the scoreboard this past week, finishing 63rd in the $3,000 No Limit Hold'em event.

  8. [caption width="640"] Cliff Josephy is the 2016 November Nine chip leader.[/caption] This was supposed to be the final installment of Rank & File for the 2016 World Series of Poker. It was supposed to show the final tally for how the former #1-ranked players on PocketFives did this summer but it turns out there’s going to be at least one more Rank & File needed after two members of this elite fraternity, Cliff ‘JohnnyBax’ Josephy and Griffin ‘Flush_Entity’ Benger, made the final table of the Main Event. Josephy and Griffin were actually two of 10 former #1-ranked players to cash in the Main Event this year. While both will have to wait until November to find out their final payout, they are each guaranteed at least $1,000,000. Paul Volpe had the next biggest Main Event score, walking away with $216,211 for finishing 29th. All told the ten players walked away with at least $2,498,657. Former #1-ranked Players in the WSOP Main Event Cliff Josephy - $1,000,000* Griffin Benger - $1,000,000* Paul Volpe - $216,211 Bryan Piccioli - $67,855 Sorel Mizzi - $49,108 Chris Hunichen - $49,108 Tim West - $28,356 Kevin Saul - $25,235 Dan Kelly - $20,499 While the Main Event was clearly the focus of the final days of the WSOP, there was one other event on the schedule and a former #1-ranked player almost walked away with the bracelet. Calvin ‘Cal42688’ Anderson finished runner-up to Michael Tureniec in the $1,111 Little One for One Drop event, earning $324,597 in the process. Bracelet WinnersThree former #1-ranked players managed to win bracelets this summer – with Josephy and Benger still having a shot at adding fourth in November. Paul Volpe won the $1,500 Eight Game Mix in early June to grab the second WSOP bracelet of his career. It was a little over two weeks later when Shaun Deeb won the $1,500 Seven Card Stud event for his second career bracelet. It was a first-time winner that stole the headlines just as the Main Event was getting underway. Fedor Holz beat Dan Smith heads up for his first ever WSOP bracelet in the $111,111 One Drop High Roller event. It was the fourth cash of his summer and earned him $4,981,775. The 22 year old German poker pro is just the 10th former #1-ranked player to win a WSOP bracelet. Holz surprised many by announcing he was taking a long-term break from poker immediately following the Main Event. Biggest ScoresObviously Josephy and Benger already have a seven-figure score, but there were a few other players that put up big numbers in individual events. So far Holz’s win in the One Drop High Roller is the single biggest score by a former #1-ranked player this summer and the only way it gets surpassed is if either Josephy or Benger goes on to win the Main Event. Volpe actually owns the two next biggest scores. He won $149,943 for his bracelet win and $216,211 for his deep Main Event run. Deeb’s bracelet win earned him $111,101. There were no other six-figure cashes but there was 27 cashes of between $10,000 and $100,000. Most CashesWhile Dan Kelly had the smallest Main Event cash of this group, he did have the most 2016 WSOP cashes of any former #1-ranked player. Kelly finished with 12 cashes – one off the record set this year by Ronald Israelashivil - for a total of $89,639 earned this summer. Kelly now has 47 career WSOP cashes and two WSOP bracelets. The next highest number of cashes was nine from Volpe. Along with his win and deep Main Event run, Volpe cashed in seven other events and posted top-20 finishes in four of them. Just one cash behind Volpe was Jordan ‘Jymaster0011’ Young with eight. While the closest Young got to a final table was a 16th place finish in a $2,500 No Limit Hold’em, the eight total cashes double his previous best WSOP performance. He finished up his summer by holding true to his online poker roots with a 138th place finish in the Online Bracelet event for $2,013. The (not quite) Final NumbersWhile the poker world waits to see just where Josephy and Benger finish in the Main Event, the numbers put up by the group of former #1-ranked players is impressive on its own. Total Cashes: 110 Total Bracelets: 3* Total Earnings: $9,025,917* *includes only $1,000,000 each from Cliff Josephy and Griffin Benger (ninth place pay out).
