  1. Last month, Denis Timofeev (pictured), who is known on PocketFives as Flat, took third in the PokerStars Sunday Millionand put back $93,000. He's associated with the 2CardsCollege pro poker training teamand told PocketFives, "I was very happy about finishing third, but I'm a little upset because I was so close to heads-up. I played with the second largest stack all final table and wanted to make a deal heads-up with another reg and win after that." $93,000 is certainly nothing to scoff at. In fact, it was Timofeev's largest score ever by a factor of three and, as he put it, "It is really good money. I've played every Sunday for two years with no big results. I think I actually deserve it now." He has $1.4 million in career online tournament winnings and is ranked #5 in his home country of Russia. There was no deal that week in the Sunday Million, which attracted a field of 5,680. He told us why no agreement was discussed in a tournament that frequently ends in a chop: "We had a reg with a big stack all final table and a lot of short stacks. That's why there was no talking about a deal. The third player three-handed was not so good. I think even if we had three equal stacks, there would have been no deal." He plans to buy a flat with his newfound winnings and, yes, that's somewhat ironic given his screen name on PocketFives is Flat. In fact, when asked if he had any plans for the money, his response was, "Look at my screen name." Duh. He has shot up to #128 worldwide in the PocketFives Rankings, 33 spots off his all-time high set earlier this year. His friends and family have been pretty elated about his success in poker. "They are happy for me," Timofeev said. "They told me, 'We knew someday you would win something like this.'" He didn't even have time to celebrate his big Sunday Million score either, as he was heading to Barcelona and had a ton of errands to do around town. As we said, Timofeev is up to #5 in Russia and is #1 in the city of Perm. He gave us his take on the Rankings here at PocketFives: "Every MTT player wants to be first. That's why every move up in the Rankings is good." He certainly has set himself up for success, as within four days of his Sunday Million final table, he won the PokerStars Hot $109 twice along with the $102 Heads-Up Hyper-Turbo and $109 Rebuy. Timofeev got started in poker eight years ago after hearing about the game from a friend. "Now, poker is a huge part of my life," he said. "I'm playing, learning, and training. I'm also interested in sports like basketball, biathlon, and football. Another big part of my life is my girlfriend. We like to spend time together and travel." Who doesn't? Other big scores for Timofeev include multiple wins in the PokerStars Big $162 and a victory two years ago on PokerStars in the Sunday Storm for $32,000.

  2. [caption width="640"] Kenneth Smaron took down the PokerStars Championship Panama Main Event Monday (PokerStars photo)[/caption] The second PokerStars Championship Main Eventwrapped up Monday night in Panama with Kenneth Smaron navigating his way through a tough final table on his way to winning $293,860. When the final six players bagged up their chips on Sunday night, Russia’s Denis Timofeev had the chip lead and Anthony Diotte, one of two Canadians still in contention, was the shortest. Starting the final day with just 16 big blinds, Diotte was in search of a hand to push with and he found one on just the third hand. Robin Luca Wozniczek raised to 70,000 before Diotte move all in for 450,000 from the big blind. Wozniczek called and turned over [poker card="2d"][poker card="2s"] while Diotte had [poker card="ah"][poker card="jc"]. The [poker card="8d"][poker card="5s"][poker card="2h"] flop gave Wozniczek bottom set and all but sealed Diotte’s fate. The [poker card="ac"] turn was no help and the [poker card="8c"] river was a formality as Diotte was sent packing in sixth. Despite the momentum that came with picking up that elimination, Wozniczek was the next to go, a little over 90 minutes later. Jonathan Abdellatif raised to 100,000 from UTG and Wozniczek and Timofeev called from the small and big blinds respectively. The flop was [poker card="6c"][poker card="5h"][poker card="3h"] and both Wozniczek and Timofeev checked, allowing Abdellatif to bet 160,000. Wozniczek raised to 380,000 and Timofeev folded. Abdellatif moved all in for 1,760,000 and Wozniczek called all in. Abdellatif turned up [poker card="9h"][poker card="7h"] for a flush draw and double-gutter while Wozniczek turned over [poker card="kh"][poker card="6h"] for top pair and a better flush draw. The [poker card="jc"] turn changed nothing but the [poker card="4s"] river gave Abdellatif a straight to eliminate Wozniczek. However, almost two hours later Abdellatif suffered the same fate. Smaron opened to 125,00 from the button and Abdellatif called from the big blind. The flop was [poker card="ad"][poker card="5h"][poker card="4d"], Abdellatif check-raised to 650,000 after Smaron bet 100,000. Smaron called and showed down [poker card="as"][poker card="7h"] for top pair while Abdellatif had a flush draw with [poker card="jd"][poker card="td"]. The [poker card="8c"] turn and [poker card="8h"] river failed to complete that draw and he was out in fourth. It took over four hours and 101 hands to go from three-handed to heads-up. Smaron raised to 160,000 from the button before Timofeev re-raised to 475,000 from the small blind. Smaron eventually four-bet to 1,100,000, Timofeev moved all in for 2,910,000 and Smaron called. Timofeev showed [poker card="th"][poker card="ts"] and Smaron was racing with [poker card="ac"][poker card="ks"]. The [poker card="7c"][poker card="5d"][poker card="4s"] flop kept Timofeev ahead. The [poker card="2c"] turn did too but gave Smaron wheel outs. The [poker card="3c"] river gave Smaron a runner-runner straight and eliminated Timofeev in third. Smaron started heads up play with the chip lead and needed only nine hands to finish off Harpreet Gill. On the final hand Gill limped his button, Smaron raised to 350,000 and Gill moved all in for 2,615,000. After some delibieration, Smaron called and tabled [poker card="kc"][poker card="jc"] and Gill showed [poker card="td"][poker card="8c"]. The [poker card="ac"][poker card="qc"][poker card="9h"] flop kept Smaron firmly ahead. The [poker card="9d"] turn and [poker card="5s"] rier changed nothing, eliminating Gill, who started the day with the second smallest stack, in second place and giving Smaron the Championship. The next PokerStars Championship event is scheduled for March 30 - April 9, 2017 at the City of Dreams in Macau. Final Table Payouts Kenneth Smaron - $293,860 Harpreet Gill - $217,860 Denis Timofeev - $161,340 Jonathan Abdellatif - $119,480 Robin Luca Wozniczek - $88,480 Anthony Diotte - $65,520 James Salmon - $48,520 Byron Kaverman - $35,920
