Chris Moorman is easily one of the most - if not the most - decorated players in PocketFives history. He's been the #1-ranked player 13 different times and has held that spot for a combined 23 weeks. He was the first player to break $10 million and $15 million in lifetime earnings. Those accolades, along with his Global Poker Awards PocketFives Legacy Award, afforded the Englishman a first-round bye in the #1 Number One bracket, but the rest of the Hearts bracket presents a formidable challenge if Moorman has any designs on advancing and adding the #1 Number One Championship Belt to his collection. The rest of the bracket includes the likes of 'C Darwin2', Patrick 'pleno1' Leonard, Bert 'girafganger7' Stephens, and the late Chad 'M8kingmoves' Batista. Enter the #1 Number One Contest Now! C Darwin2 (#2) vs Jovial Gent (#15) Between February 2016 and May 2019, Sweden's 'C Darwin2' enjoyed eight different reigns at the #1 spot for a total of 66 weeks (third all-time). That, coupled with $16,779,066 in lifetime earnings, propelled 'C Darwin2' to the #2 seed in the Hearts bracket and made for a formidable first round opponent for Yevgeniy 'Jovial Gent' Timoshenko, who comes in at #15. Timoshenko held the #1 spot for a single week in May 2007 and has $4,826,132 in lifetime online earnings. Gettin Daize (#3) vs vinkyy (#14) Chris 'Getting Daize' Oliver took the #1 spot for the first time in August 2010 and then again in December of the same year. In both instances Oliver's grasp on the top spot lasted just one week. Still, the American, who now calls Costa Rica home, has $15,200,033 in lifetime online earnings, which is good enough for fifth best. Oliver's first round opponent, 'vinkyy' was #1 in the world for a single week back in October 2013 and has four PocketFives Triple Crowns to his credit. eisenhower1 (#4) vs brsavage (#13) Chris 'brsavage' Savage was the very first player to hold down the #1 spot on PocketFives. From January 17, 2005 thru April 18, 2005, Savage was considered the top online MTT player in the world. His status as 'PocketFives OG' could lead him to an upset over one of the best players Sweden has ever produced. Christian 'eisenhower1' Jeppsson took his turn at #1 for one week from September 30, 2015 thru October 7, 2015. He's also captured six Triple Crowns. Legenden (#5) vs norfair18 (#12) From March thru May 2013, 'Legenden' was in the online poker streets battling with some of the best in the world and put up results that allowed him to rise to the #1 ranking three different times. The competition was so fierce that two of his reigns lasted just one week and the third was two weeks. His first round opponent, 'norfair18' had a single week as the top-ranked online poker player in the world, taking the spot from Nicolas 'PokerKaiser' Fierro in April 2015. pleno1 (#6) vs lukethafluke (#11) Patrick 'pleno1' Leonard has been #1 on PocketFives on four separate occasions, most recently in November 2019. That reign, which lasted one week, came more than five years after he first topped the rankings. Leonard has $12.5 million in earnings and has won one Triple Crown and two monthly leaderboards. His first round opponent, Lukas 'lukethafluke' Berglund earned the #11 seed thanks to four turns at #1 between January and June in 2014 which helped push his lifetime earnings past $5 million. girafganger7 (#7) vs taypaur (#10) With more than $14 million in lifetime earnings and three reigns at #1, Bert 'girafganger7' Stephens still finds himself as an underdog to advance beyond the first round. Even then, he still has to make it past Taylor 'taypaur' Paur. On two separate occasions, Paur was #1 in the world with reigns lasting two weeks and seven weeks respectively. He also has more than $5 million in lifetime earnings. M8kingmoves (#8) vs ch0ppy (#9) Chad 'M8kingmoves' Batista had just one reign at #1, but he made the absolute most of it. Batista took over the #1 spot on August 22, 2007 and didn't let go of it for an astonishing 45 weeks, the second-longest reign of all-time trailing only Cliff 'JohnnyBax' Josephy's 74-week reign. Batista still has to get through Matt 'ch0ppy' Kay who had two week-long turns atop the Rankings in in July 2012 and February 2013. The Canadian also has five Triple Crown awards and $7.2 million in lifetime online earnings. Make your picks in the PocketFives #1 Number One Contest - entries due by Midnight ET on April 2.

The opening week of the busy Spring season for online poker players allowed a number of the best tournament players to reach some impressive milestones with former #1-ranked Chris 'Gettin Daize' Oliver headlining the list. Oliver, who was ranked #1 twice for a total of 16 weeks in 2010, posted a 35th place finish in PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker Event #8 High ($530 NLHE w/rebuys) to become just the eighth player to get to the $9,000,000 career earnings mark. The former US-grinder, who know calls Costa Rica home, was one of 13 players to break through various million-dollar marks this week. 888poker pro Dominik 'bounatirouIMO" Nitsche is now part of the $4 million earnings group thanks to two big SCOOP scores. He finished runner-up in Event #10 High ($2,100 NLH Win the Button) for $75,000 and two days later fourth in the Event #15 Medium ($2,100 NLHE High Roller) for $115,800. Nitsche sits third on Germany's all-time earnings list behind only Giuseppe 'LeChiffre19' Pantaleo and 'niself'. Top-ranked Brazilian Diego 'MrBittar' Bittar was one of four players to hit the $3,000,000 mark. Joining Bittar were Sergio 'zcedrick' Aido, Maszat 'noirduck' Marci and 'cedrick1'. Two others hit the $2,000,000 mark: Sweden's 'machiavelli3' and Brazil's Regis 'capotinha' Kogler. Five players went from six-figures in lifetime earnings to seven this past week. 'fahrino' 'Apotheosis' 'Borraurelio' 'aziz.mancha' 'que_te_crio' While it wasn't quite seven figures, New Jersey's 'Acanthopis' hit a major milestone for players from the Garden State, passing $500,000 in lifetime earnings on regulated New Jersey sites. The top 100 of the PocketFives Rankings also saw a lot of career-bests. After posting seven cashes big enough to impact his PLB score, Swedish grinder 'inhoo' went from #3 to #2 - a career high for him. The Mexican SCOOP compound that Rory Young is in has clearly paid off. Young went from #18 to #14 Bittar also jumped into the top 20 for the first time, moving up 20 spots after his victory in SCOOP Event #4 High ($2,100 No Limit Hold’em) to #16. Other players in the top 100 who have moved to career-high rankings this past week.

Costa Rica is home to many displaced American online grinders in the post-Black Friday world. The result of the changed landscape is a rankings list that is a “who’s who” of the online community. Former PocketFives #1 players fill Costa Rica's top 10. Grinders who have honed their game as it has changed in front of them dominate in Costa Rica. The #1 ranked player in Costa Rica is Chris ‘BigHuni’ Hunichen. The North Carolina-born Hunichen passed the $10 million mark in career earnings and is sixth on the all-time money list. Hunichen reached #1 in the world in January 2015 and he is currently #20. Hunichen has increased his volume in live High Roller events in the last year and started his 2018 by competing in the PCA $100,000 Super High Roller. Behind Hunichen is Michael ‘Telks’ Telker. Telker achieved #1 status in December 2011 and closed his 2017 by making the top-10 of the PLB Monthly Leaderboard. In terms of the all-time money list, Telker is 14th all-time and a shade over $1 million from becoming the seventh player ever to reach the $10 million mark. Kurt ‘kurt23x’ Fitzgerald is on the podium at number three. Fitzgerald put together a strong November with four wins in the neighborhood of 200 PLB points. The largest was on November 14 when Fitzgerald won the Sunday 500 on PokerStars for $22,697.Fitzgerald ranks 50th in the world. The third former #1 to crack the rankings is Chris ‘Gettin Daize’ Oliver. The 2010 Yearly PLB Leaderboard champion is on his way to hitting $10 million in the early part of 2017. Oliver stands less than $250,000 away from the landmark and is continuing to put in strong volume to reach that target. Brian ‘brianm15’ England achieved #1 status in 2014 and is over $6 million lifetime. England is a consistent online player and has increased his live volume as of late. In 2017, England won $144,901 in live tournaments with a few highlights mixed in. England made a Day 5 appearance in the WSOP Main Event and won a Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open tournament for $31,109. At #6 is Steve ‘Illini213’ Barshak. 2017 was kind to Barshak with a SCOOP title and movement over the $7 million career earnings checkpoint. Barshak won SCOOP Event 46-M ($109 Rebuy $150,000 guaranteed) and added $51,024 to his bankroll in the process. Robert ‘PlayaPlz’ Lipkin has the largest amount of immediate bragging rights of any player on this list. Lipkin shipped the PokerStars High Roller Series $10,300 $1 million guaranteed on November 28 for $258,639. Lipkin picked up 1,086.28 PLB points with the victory and notched the second six-figure score of his career. In the eighth spot is Grayson ‘gray31’ Ramage.

The top-10 concludes with two more Americans in Michael ‘MindSlaver’ Acevedo and Mike ‘Flippa42’ Carter. Both players are under 3,000 PLB points and have a chance to cross that mark soon with more consistent volume.

Koplimaa picked up 2,601 PLB points through his 20 qualifying cashes to win the Monthly PLB for the first time in his career.
