  1. The first round of the PocketFives #1 Number One contest is complete and while all four #1 seeds had little trouble advancing to the second round, there were five first round upsets which could change the fates of a few of the former #1-ranked players. Hearts Bracket Chris 'moorman1' Moorman advanced to the second round thanks to his first round bye. The higher ranked seed in each of the seven other first round matches in the Hearts bracket also advanced. Chad 'M8kingmoves' Batista, who passed away in 2015, defeated Matt 'ch0ppy' Kay. #2 seed 'C Darwin2' moved past Yevgeniy 'Jovial Gent' Tim
  2. 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 col
  3. Damian Salas’ amazing start to 2021 got even better this week with a string of online scores propelling the newly crowned World Series of Poker Main Event champion to a career-high spot in the latest worldwide Online Poker Rankings. If the totality of Salas’ yearly accomplishments would have been taking down the 2020 WSOP Main Event in January, by any standard it would have been a great year. But Salas, who has a well-documented love of the grind seemingly isn’t content with his place in the history books, he wants more. After spending the past two weeks racking up picking up impressive sco
  4. A flurry of tournament wins in the middle of the month helped Jonathan ‘luckyfish89’ Clark pick up an early holiday present in the form of winning the PocketFives Monthly Leaderboard for the month of November. Clark, currently the #3-ranked player in the United Kingdom, hit a career-high ranking of #18 in the world last month after racking up 95 cashes for just over $330,000 in earnings. Much of those earnings was due to Clark’s fast start in the month, especially on November 2, when he crushed the GGMasters $1,050 High Rollers as the runner-up which earned him a career-high $118,941 sc
  5. Movers & Shakers takes a look into those PocketFives members that have made big moves in the top 100 of the online poker rankings. There is a lot on the line in this week’s Movers & Shakers. For the first time in a long time, Sweden’s ‘lena900’ is faced with a serious threat to his worldwide #1 ranking. Along with a pair of tournament crushers cruising up the ranks of the top 10, some notable names have made double-digit jumps up the rankings, plus a Bulgarian pro broke into the top 100 for the first time. Roman ‘Romeopro’ Romanovsky (#2) and ‘Girafganger7’ (#3) The column is c
  6. A trio of high profile spring online poker series has wreaked havoc on the PocketFives Worldwide Top 10 Rankings. In fact, rankings of nine of the top 10 players shifted this week. The only exception…the number one spot still belongs to ‘C Darwin2'. As PokerStars’ Spring Championship of Online Poker, partypoker’s POWERFEST and 888poker’s XL Inferno provide players some of the largest prize pools of the year, online poker’s elite are on the full-time grind. The results posted by those who end up crushing the competition is enough to help them make major moves in the rankings. That said, curre
  7. As 2019 draws to a close, PocketFives takes a look back at the year that was in poker news, going month-by-month through the biggest and most important stories of the year. Even though it was August, the WSOP Main Event was back in the headlines, as a player that was disqualified from the tournament had a terrorism charge brought against him and another player was being sued over a staking deal. Ken Strauss Arrested and Charged for Terroristic Threat Ken Strauss, who was disqualified from the 2019 World Series of Poker Main Event, was taking into custody and charged with making terroristic t
  8. Markku 'markovitsus' Koplimaa had himself a very busy - and very fruitful - July as took down the PocketFives Leaderboard for the month. Koplimaa picked up 2,601 PLB points through his 20 qualifying cashes to win the Monthly PLB for the first time in his career.

  9. In the limited amount of time post-World Series of Poker that has seen a more consistent schedule from the top players in the world, 'C Darwin2' continues to hold down the #1 ranking. ‘C Darwin2’ took third place in the Hot $215 on PokerStars, marking his largest score since his return to a full schedule after some time spent in Las Vegas. Staying at #2 in ‘lena900,’ who found a podium finish in the 5-card Pot Limit Omaha event on PokerStars on July 27 and won the Hot $215 for over $13,000 spread between the two cashes. The combined PLB point totals for the events were worth just o
  10. 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 ove
  11. Upon first blush, there doesn’t seem to be a lot of sympathy for 2016 World Series of Poker Main Event runner-up Gordon Vayo and his current predicament with online poker giant PokerStars. It was revealed this week that Vayo unconditionally dropped his $600,000 lawsuit against PokerStars for withholding the bulk of his winnings from Event #1 of the 2017 SCOOP. PokerStars did so after evidence that Vayo broke the terms of service and played the event from inside the U.S. Vayo provided documents alleging that he was actually in Canada, as he claimed, but after a “third party” provided PokerSta
  12. In the illustrious history of the PocketFives Rankings, 55 different players have managed to hold down the #1 spot.

  13. For the first time in 10 months, there is a new #1 ranked player in the world of online poker - Roman ‘Romeopro’ Romanovsky. Regardless of rankings, Romanovsky is considered one of the very best MTT players in the entire world. He regularly competes and earns victories in tournaments at the highest stakes offered on every online site he plays. The Ukranian crusher has been a mainstay in the worldwide top 10 for the better part of two years and finally, for the first time, he's taking over the #1 spot. Although this is his first turn at the top of the rankings, it certainly was not the firs
  14. Justin 'ZeeJustin' Bonomo was too strong for the PokerStars $2,100 Sunday High Roller field and added yet another win to his name. The American found himself heads-up against 'WATnlos' after players such as Andras 'probirs' Nemeth, Kristen 'Krissyb24' Bicknell and three-time Sunday Million champion 'veeea' had all departed from the final table. Ultimately Bonomo came through the final test and banked $55,673 for his win, with 'WATnlos' having received $42,848 as runner-up. 'CoriACE777' walked away from the PokerStars $109 Sunday Million with the biggest share of the prize pool following a t
  15. “If you ask: ‘Is it still beatable?’, ‘Can you make a lot of money?’, ‘Can you start low and grind it up?’, The answer is yes.” Five years into his online poker career as a member of the PocketFives community, high-stakes online poker professional ‘Girafganger7’ still believes in the poker dream. The well-known Belgium pro, who goes by ‘Giraf’, is a fixture in the online tournament scene. He’s a consistent threat to take down any tournament he enters and, in 2018, he has been a mainstay in the top 25 of the PocketFives Rankings. Of course, like most, it wasn’t always easy for Giraf, h
  16. Poker action on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean came into focus throughout October. Another edition of WSOP Europe got underway - but didn't finish - in Rozvadov, Czech while some of the best online players in New Jersey were busy chasing down NJCOOP titles. Steve O'Dwyer Picks Up $1M With Two Tournament Wins It could be argued that nobody had a better October than Steve O'Dwyer. He traveled to Dusk Till Dawn in Nottingham, UK and beat 51 and 105 players in back-to-back tournaments to win $407,734 and $592,448 respectively. The two wins came one month after O'Dwyer picked up PokerStars W

  18. As 2019 draws to a close, PocketFives takes a look back at the year that was in poker news, going month-by-month through the biggest and most important stories of the year.

A little over 18 months after first introducing Stars Rewards, the company anno
  19. Yuri ‘theNERDguy’ Dzivielevski is clearly enjoying his summer. The former #1-ranked online poker player in the world won his second World Series of Poker bracelet in late July and then a pair of PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker titles in the first week of play.
