  1. You remember the days of being a newbie in poker. For PocketFiver Simon Ronnow Pedersen (pictured), known as IgorKon our site, those days are, thankfully, long past. Last month, he took down the PartyPoker $200,000 Guaranteedfor $32,000. He plays on the site under the user name SuzukiTorben007. "I'm feeling quite good," Pedersen told PocketFives after the fact. "It was nice to finally close a Major. The last few weeks have been pretty brutal with some ninths and tenths in various Majors." There were 845 entrants that week, which meant the prize pool fell short of the guarantee and a $31,000 overlay was up for grabs. Pedersen described the final stages of the tournament as a "hard endgame." He explained, "When we were 16 left, there were still three of my friends who are also some of Denmark's best MTT regs left. So, we had a recipe for some fun and interesting hands. I got to the final table second in chips, but after some important hands and steady grind, I was the chip leader and didn't look back. It was a mix of good timing and some important holds." As far as the money goes, he'll recoup a chunk of the previous month's losses. He also entered last month's SCOOP with a high degree of motivation and confidence. The Dane has $1.2 million in tracked online tournament winnings and had a strong end to 2014 with wins in the Sunday Supersonic and Big $109 for a combined $90,000. "It was huge for my career," Pedersen said of last year. "2014 was absurdly good for me. I was lucky enough to have some of the greatest Danish players around me. I also had a lot of off-table work and obviously an absurd amount of run-good." The year wasn't without a few hiccups, though. He candidly explained, "In the middle of the whole thing, right after my Supersonic win, my PokerStars account got banned. It was all because my account had been hacked and PokerStars saw some strange changes to my IP logins. It turned out that a former friend had, without my knowledge, been logging into my account. So, his account was banned and mine was too." Pedersen ended up in time out from PokerStars for three months. He said that during that 90 days he had to "twiddle my thumbs when I had just lost 80% of my volume. But, the first session after my return to PokerStars, I won the Big $109. It was definitely a breakthrough for me on the MTT scene, especially with my side event win at EPT Vienna." As Pedersen mentioned, he won a €1,100 No Limit Hold'em Single Re-Entry tournament at EPT Vienna (pictured) in March 2014 for $101,000. He's #97 on the all-time money list for Denmark, according to the Hendon Mob. The PartyPoker $200K winner got his start in poker with friends in a basement. He recalled, "I remember I was looking at a sheet of poker hand rankings while I was playing, but I don't think it helped at all." Away from poker, Pedersen spends time with his girlfriend and poker friends. He told us, "If I'm not grinding my ass off, I really enjoying fishing at the Danish coasts and trying to find time to hit the gym. That isn't always easy with a messed up sleeping pattern." Congrats to Pedersen on his Sunday Major win! Want the latest poker headlines and interviews? Follow PocketFives on Twitterand Like PocketFives on Facebook.
  2. Don't look now, but veeea(pictured) is making a charge towards the #1 spot in the PocketFives Rankings. He rose nine spots this week to settle at #4, two off his all-time high. He has been on a tear in recent weeks and finished third in the PartyPoker Sunday Major over the weekend for $12,000. --- 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. --- veeea is up to almost $4.2 million in career online tournament cashes and is the top-ranked player in Uruguay, although he's formerly from Russia. He won two PocketFives Triple Crowns in March of this year and is about 800 PLB Points shy of becoming the #1 ranked player on PocketFives. There wasn't much movement inside the top 10 worldwide this week, so we'll instead talk about Christopher kid_bramm Brammer (pictured), who was ranked #65 to start the week, but now finds himself at #30. He recently hit $5 million in career online tournament winnings and won last week's Super Tuesday to the tune of $106,000. It's hard to believe that was only his fourth largest tracked cash to date. Also moving up this week was IgorK, who is known in the real world as Simon Ronnow Pedersen. The Dane moved up 29 spots to #40 in the world after winning the PokerStars $215 NLHE Turbo on August 16 for $20,000. The same day, he made the final table of the PartyPoker Sunday Major. This is the highest he has ever been in the PocketFives Rankings. Finally this week, we wanted to talk about Uruguay's rph, who reentered the top 100 at #78, the highest debut of anyone this week. His last win came in late July in the Super Tuesday for a commanding $87,000, bringing his career total to almost $3.5 million. He was ranked as high as #26 on PocketFives three years ago. Here are the top 10 players in the Rankings this week along with the PLB score for each: 1. PokerKaiser - 7,209 points 2. aguskb - 7,180 points 3. Sheater - 6,461 points 4. veeea - 6,385 points 5. eisenhower1 - 6,370 points 6. hellohellohello - 6,280 points 7.

  3. It's Wednesday, which means the PocketFives Online Poker Rankingsreceived their weekly facelift. There were no new entrants in the top 10 worldwide this week, but we did have plenty of risers and fallers, including Simon IgorK Pedersen (pictured), who moved up two spots to #7. This is the highest Pedersen has ever been in the Rankings and comes on the heels of seven wins in the last four weeks: the PartyPokerHeavyweight Uppercut, PokerStars$55 Turbo, Winamax High Roller (twice), PartyPoker Heavyweight, 888Crocodile, and William Hill €25,000 Grand Tuesday. Those seven victories brought his career win total up to 95. Pedersen is the top-ranked player in Denmark out of the 519 PocketFivers in that country with PLB scores and plays as Igorkarkarofon PokerStars and PartyPoker. He has $154,000 in live tournament cashes as well, according to the Hendon Mob. Toronto's Jimmy JMolloy Molloy moved up 31 spots to #41 this week after winning the PokerStars Sunday $109 Rebuy over the weekend for $37,000. He has taken down the site's $109 Cubed and $82 Six-Max Hyper-Turbo since then and is almost certain to climb even higher in the Rankings when they're recalculated next Wednesday. Finally this week, we wanted to talk about another PocketFiver from Denmark: Skrigepas. He reentered the top 100 at #84 and won the Full Tilt Sunday Major over the weekend for $12,000. Skrigepas was ranked as high as #6 on PocketFives earlier this year and is the top-ranked online poker player in the city of Aarhus. Here are the top 10 players in the Rankings this week along with the PLB score for each: 1. eisenhower1 - 7,907 points 2. veeea - 7,472 points 3. lena900 - 6,761 points 4. SvZff - 6,726 points 5. AnteSvante - 6,508 points 6. cswami - 6,470 points 7. IgorK- 6,394 points 8. jbrown8777 - 6,376 points 9. C Darwin2 - 6,343 points 10. bedias - 6,290 points Congrats to all of our ranked players.

  4. It's Wednesday, which means the PocketFives Online Poker Rankingshave been recalculated. We had two new entrants into the top 10 this week, Smeckten(pictured) and IgorK, who can now be found at #9 and #10, respectively. Let's start with Smeckten, who moved up five spots to #9 in the world. He had a rock solid day on Monday, winning the PokerStars $215 No Limit Hold'em Turbo and Big $162 for $20,000 total. Those were the 77th and 78th wins we've tracked for him over the course of his career. Smeckten is one of the many top-ranked PocketFivers from Sweden and is #1 in the county of Skane Lan. He is one of five members from Sweden in the top nine of the Rankings. IgorK (pictured below) moved up two spots to #10 on PocketFives, his highest slotting ever. He has been on fire over the last 10 days, winning the PartyPokerHeavyweight and 888 Poker Crocodile on the 16th. The next day, IgorK final tabled the Super Tuesday for $27,000. Last weekend, the Danish player made the final table of the 888 Mega Deep. Another player from Denmark, Allan sifosis Bakke, moved up 24 spots to #18. This former top-ten player won the PokerStars Sunday Second Chance over the weekend for $38,000 and has a pair of tracked wins since then. Bakke is the second-ranked player in Denmark and owns $4.4 million in online MTT cashes. After signing up for PocketFives on November 18 and entering his screen names, Sweden's DeathbyQuads debuted in the Rankings at #26. His largest score came in September after final tabling a WCOOP Second Chance tournament for $49,000. He can be found under the user name Eijseijs on most of the major online poker sites. Finally this week, we wanted to talk about the real roks, who reentered the top 100 at #90. He plays as smokrokflock on PokerStars and is on the verge of hitting $5 million in career online tournament winnings. He has more earnings on PokerStars – $3.4 million – than most PocketFivers have in total. Here are the top 10 players in the Rankings this week along with the PLB score for each: 1. eisenhower1 - 8,125 points 2. veeea - 7,679 points 3. lena900 - 6,815 points 4. prebzzz - 6,594 points 5.

  5. For the second time in two months, Simon Ronnow Pedersen (pictured), known on PocketFives as IgorK, has won a PocketFives Triple Crown. This time around, his Triple Crown quest began on December 8 with a win in the William Hill €25,000 Grand Tuesday for $6,600 and 170 PLB Points. That tournament drew 154 entrants and Pedersen was one of three members of our community to cash in it. Five days later, Pedersen won the Winamax High Roller, a tournament that has a $300 buy-in and drew a field of 181. He was one of two PocketFivers to make the money in the High Roller and bagged over $13,000 along with 231 PLB Points. The same day, he final tabled the Bigger $162 over on PokerStars. Despite the fact it wasn't a win and therefore not a qualifying Triple Crown score, he still earned $16,000. His final Triple Crown win came on December 15, seven days after win number one, in the PokerStars $109 No Limit Hold'em Turbo Cubed. He earned almost $6,000 and 160 PLB Points. That tournament had a field of 122 entrants and winning it meant his second Triple Crown all-time and his second in the last two months. Pedersen now has 98 career wins in tournaments PocketFives tracks and is fresh off winning a Triple Crown on November 16 after wins on PartyPoker, PokerStars, and 888 for a total of 497 PLB Points. Pedersen calls Arhus, Denmark home and has helped his home country amass a total of 34 PocketFives Triple Crowns over the years. The Dane told PocketFives shortly after winning his second Triple Crown, "It's pretty wicked. I had been hunting the first Triple Crown for a long time, so to get two in one month describes how good the last month, actually the last three months, have been. I have made a lot of deep runs in tournaments with hard fields, so it feels awesome to close many of them when there is so much though competition." Pederson is fresh off a 2015 calendar year in which he recorded four of his five largest scores to date: September 27: Second place in the PokerStars $109 Rebuy for $35,000 May 10: First place in the PartyPoker Sunday Major for $32,000 September 15: First place in the 888 Volcano for $31,000 November 17: Fifth place in the PokerStars Super Tuesday for $27,000 If you're not familiar with the award, a Triple Crown requires a player to win three tournaments across three sites tracked for the PocketFives Rankings within the same seven-day period. Each tournament must have a prize pool of at least $10,000, each tournament must have at least 100 players, each tournament must have a buy-in of at least $0.01, and satellites do not count.

  6. [caption width="664"] Stats for 'C Darwin2', the top-ranked player in the world[/caption] It's officially a three-peat. For the third straight week, Sweden's 'C Darwin2' is #1 in the PocketFives Rankings. It's his longest stint at the top. Can he make it four in a row next week? 'C Darwin2' has 7,324 PLB Points, the measure used to determine the rankings, and leads the second place score of 6,837 points belonging to 'Ariados' by almost 500. The former has only one win that's tracked for the rankings in February, which came in the PartyPoker High Roller on February 7 for $15,000, but has made up for it with top ten finish after top ten finish. In fact, 'C Darwin2' has 18 top-ten runs this month and is pushing $3.7 million in career online tournament scores. 'Ariados' moved up one spot this week to #2. Also from Sweden, 'Ariados' had a blockbuster Valentine's Day, winning the PokerStars Bounty Builder and PokerStars.fr Sunday High Roller that day for almost $25,000 total. This is the highest 'Ariados' has ever been in the rankings and he's one of five Swedes in the top eight worldwide. Speaking of Sweden, 'lena900' moved up from #6 to #3, one spot off his all-time high. Closing in on $4 million in lifetime scores, 'lena900' won the PokerStars $109 No Limit Hold'em Cubed on Tuesday and finished second in the Winamax High Roller over the weekend for $12,000. He has six wins this month, bringing his lifetime total to 85. [caption width="300" align="alignright"] 'IgorK' reentered the top ten[/caption] Simon 'IgorK' Ronnow Pedersen reentered the top ten at #10. He's had five wins in February, including in the PokerStars Bounty Builder for $15,000 and PartyPoker High Roller for $10,000. Pedersen just passed $2.1 million in career online winnings and owns almost 300 top-three finishes. Hitting #47 in the world, his best showing ever, was '1_conor_b_1'. This poker player from the UK has been on fire in recent weeks, taking third in the PokerStars Sunday Warm-Up for $41,000, final tabling the Sunday 500 for $23,000, and getting fourth in the Sunday Second Chance. That's three Sunday Majors in three weeks. He is the top-ranked online poker player in the city of York and it would not be surprising to see him crack the top 20 worldwide in the near future. [caption width="428"] Tomi 'emeriaa' Brouk moved up 20 spots[/caption] Tomi 'emeriaa' Brouk moved up 20 spots in the rankings this week to #54. Brouk is the top-ranked player from Finland and made it as high as #17 in the world last year. He took second in the PokerStars Sunday 500 over the weekend for $42,000 officially, his seventh largest cash all-time. Brouk has 333 top-three finishes over the years. Also advancing 20 spots in the rankings was Brazil's Diego 'MrBittar' Bittar, who ended up at #69, one off his all-time high. He won the PokerStars Hotter $162 over the weekend for $20,000 and finished first in the site's Big $162 on the first day of February for $12,000. Bittar is the sixth-ranked player in the South American country and #1 in the capital city of Brasília. Denmark's 'x_zola25' reentered the top 100 at #79. He was once ranked in the top ten on PocketFives and is fresh off winning the PokerStars $109 Rebuy over the weekend for $8,200; he took down the same tournament earlier this month for about the same amount. The Dane's February has also included a win in the PartyPoker High Roller. [caption width="615"] Rasmus 'RasA' Agerskov Larsen reentered the top 100 at #91 (photo: Pokernyhederne.com)[/caption] Another Danish player, Rasmus 'RasA' Agerskov Larsen, reentered the top 100 this week. Larsen can be found at #91 and took third in the PokerStars Sunday $109 Rebuy over the weekend and put back $21,000. He won the same tournament on February 7 for almost $40,000, his tenth largest cash to date. Larsen reached as high as #40 in the world on PocketFives last year and is the fourth-ranked player in Denmark. Here are the top ten players in the rankings this week along with the PLB score for each: C Darwin2 - 7,324 points Ariados - 6,837 points lena900 - 6,832 points gray31 - 6,798 points eisenhower1 - 6,726 points MendaLerenda - 6,691 points SvZff - 6,652 points Smeckten - 6,497 points veeea - 6,403 points IgorK - 6,184 points
