  1. Only one player has held the #1 spot for more weeks than Cliff 'JohnnyBax' Josephy, but while 'lena900' has had 10 turns as the #1-ranked player for 97 weeks, Josephy had one run that lasted an astonishing 74 weeks. That level of success has made Josephy a longstanding favorite of the PocketFives community and his PocketFives Legacy Award, which he won at the 2016 American Poker Awards, earned him the #7 seed in the Clubs bracket and an automatic bye into the second round. If Josephy wants to continue to add to his growing list of accolades, he'll need to survive a Clubs bracket that includes the likes of #1 seed Sebastian 'p0cket00' Sikorski, Fabrizio 'SixthSenSe19' Gonzalez, Fedor Holz, and his former protege Kevin 'BeL0WaB0Ve' Saul. Enter the #1 Number One Contest Now! p0cket00 (#1) vs StrungOut1 (#16) Sebastian 'p0cket00' Sikorski earned the #1 seed in this bracket thanks to being one of just six players to have worked their way into the #1 ranking on six different occasions. Those six reigns, turned into 28 weeks at #1 for Sikorski which, in addition to his seven Triple Crowns (good for 10th all-time), makes him one of the most accomplished players in PocketFives history. Michael 'StrungOut1' Wasserman held the #1 spot for one week in September 2015. He won two Triple Crowns before having his results no longer tracked by PocketFives. SixthSenSe19 (#2) vs Doc Sands (#15) Fabrizio 'SixthSenSe19' Gonzalez was ranked #1 on PocketFives on three separate occasions for a combined 21 weeks between October 2016 and March 2017. The Uruguayan has accumulated more than $10 million in lifetime online earnings thanks to PokerStars WCOOP and SCOOP titles as well as partypoker Powerfest wins. His path to Round 2 isn't an easy one though. David 'Doc Sands' Sands might have held the #1 ranking only one time, but his six-week reign and $3 million in online earnings, combined with his status as a popular member of PocketFives, make him a threat to advance. gboro780 (#3) vs SvZff (#14) It somehow feels like Steve 'gboro780' Gross might be a tad underrated as the #3 seed. Gross reached #1 on four separate occasions and has the fourth-longest combined time at #1 at 55 weeks. A majority of Gross' $6.2 million in lifetime earnings came before Black Friday as did his two Triple Crowns. Steven van Zadelhoff is the player standing in Gross' way of a first-round win. The Dutchman earned the #1 ranking in December 2017, just two months after he won the PokerStars WCOOP Main Event for $1.6 million. He held the top spot for a single week and has $11.4 million in earnings plus a Triple Crown to his credit. r4ndomr4gs (#4) vs aguskb (#13) Andreas 'r4ndomr4gs' Berggren is part of the army of Swedish superstars who have held the #1 spot. Berggren first took the top spot in May 2014 and held onto it for one week before losing it to fellow Swede Lukas 'lukethafluke' Berglund. He grabbed it back two weeks later for a final two weeks on top. He's also one of just 13 players with at least $14 Million in earnings. Aaron 'aguskb' Gustavson could be in line for an upset here. Gustavson spent one more week on top than Berggren over his two reigns. djk123 (#5) vs Greenstone25 (#12) With three times on top of the PocketFives Rankings and a pair of WSOP bracelets, Dan 'djk123' Kelly is one of the most decorated players in the field. He no longer plays professionally, but during his time at the top of the Rankings, Kelly was one of the most respected MTT grinders on the planet. His first-round opponent, Johannes 'Greenstone25' Korsar is another member of the Swedish contingent in the field. Korsar was #1 for three weeks in December 2019 and was only displaced by fellow Swede 'lena900'. 1_conor_b_1 (#6) vs BeL0WaB0Ve (#11) This matchup is going to be one to keep an eye on and could come down to a battle of American and British voters. Kevin 'BeL0WaB0Ve' Saul is a legendary figure to most long-time PocketFivers and his seven-week run at #1 in 2006-2007 helped solidify that position. His longtime popularity makes him a threat to upset the #6 seed, Conor '1_conor_b_1' Beresford who brings a 29 straight week reign at #1 as his leading credential. He also has $15 Million in earnings and a trophy case full of some of online poker's most prestigious hardware. Tmay420 (#8) vs CrownUpGuy (#9) Some voters may consider live poker success and that makes Fedor 'CrownUpGuy' Holz a threat to upset Tim 'Tmay420' West. Holz became #1 on three occasions, each time holding onto it for a single week. He won the 2014 PokerStars WCOOP Main Event and then went onto win more than $32 Million in live tournaments. West was #1 for seven weeks straight beginning in late 2006. He's won more than $4 Million online and nearly the same event in live events.

  2. 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. Jordan iMsoLucky0Morgan - 773,000 5. Joseph Iarussi - 764,000 6. Mark Wilds - 700,000 7. Vinny Pahuja - 572,000 8. Bryan Dillon - 560,000 9. Robert Chorlian - 492,000 10. Roberto Romanello - 458,000 11. Ryan Spittles - 453,000 12. Justin Conley - 302,000 13. Evan McNiff - 294,000 14. Alexander Zeligman - 243,000 15.

  3. 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.

  4. 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?

  5. In a $2,100 Stud event held this week during the ongoing PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker, or SCOOP, PocketFiver Calvin cal42688Anderson (pictured) made history. Anderson recorded his sixth SCOOP title, surpassing fellow PocketFiver Shaun shaundeeb Deeb, who was perhaps not coincidentally also at the final table. Deeb owns five career SCOOP victories. The PokerStars Blog outlined the resoundingly epic lineup that made it to the final eight in the $2,100 Stud event. The group included "shaundeeb(5 SCOOP titles and 2 WCOOP titles), cal42688(5 SCOOP titles and 1 WCOOP title), Dan djk123Kelly (4 WCOOP titles and 2 SCOOP titles), and Kroko-dill(won the Sunday Million, 1 SCOOP title, and 1 WCOOP title)." Combined, that's 13 SCOOP titles and eight WCOOP wins. Anderson went heads-up against Kelly, and the two had nearly equal stacks when two-handed play began. The pair eventually reached a deal where Anderson would take home $35,000, Kelly would take home $34,000, and $1,500 and the SCOOP title would be left in the center to play for. Fifty-four hands after heads-up play began, Anderson earned SCOOP title #6: 1. cal42688 (Mexico): $36,600 2. djk123 (Australia): $34,019 3. Kroko-dill (Russia): $19,800 4. shaundeeb (Mexico): $13,200 5. bedias (Brazil): $9,900 6. calvin7v (Finland): $7,260 7. chokitin (Argentina): $5,940 8. CMoosepower (Denmark): $5,280 Anderson has almost $6 million in career online tournament winnings that PocketFives has tracked, including a victory on Full Tilt just before Black Friday for $303,000. He has WCOOP, SCOOP, Super Tuesday, Sunday Second Chance, Sunday Supersonic, and Sunday $109 Rebuy wins under his belt, just to name a few. Congrats to Anderson on his latest SCOOP victory!
