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.

[caption width="640"] Number 5-ranked tournament player, 'Inho' leads the way in Day 5 XL Eclipse action.[/caption] PocketFives.com current Worldwide #5-ranked player Robin 'Inho' Ylitalo found himself atop the payouts at the end of Thursday's slate of XL Eclipse tournaments over on 888poker. The 13-event grouping brought with it over $350,000 in guarantees as the poker series has now completed one-third of its scheduled 197 events. One of online poker's most prolific players, Sweden's Ylitalo took down the tournament with the largest guarantee of the day, Event #62 ($215 $100,000 Quarterback NLHE) by defeating Germany's 'luckyr1ver', who was at his 2nd final table of the day. Ylitalo walked with $21,356 to add to his already impressive accumulation of over $8,000,000 in lifetime earnings. Of course, he wasn't the only Pocketfiver making moves on this day as a number of ranked players climbed the leaderboards for victories in their respective tournaments. Ukraine's #5-ranked tournament pro, 'GSwarrior30', toppled Event #56 ($30 $15,000 Deepstack Swordfish NLHE) for $3,691.87 while Avtaliono 'kavkazbear' Ibinosov from Cyprus nearly matched a career-best cash for himself when he claimed the title in Event #61 ($55 $20,000 Monsoon NLHE) for $4,791.15. Paul 'xxCelticFCxx' Febers had a great day on the tables as the Glaswegian first place finish in Event #63 ($44 $30,000 Mini Quarterback NLHE) was good for $6,466,54, another one of the largest hauls of the day. Additionally, Brazil's Eli 'quibedoneto' Fagundes earned an XL Eclipse title by defeating the 940 runners in Event #64 ($12 $25,000 Tuesday Challenge NLHE).
