  1. To close out July, Jerry Odeen, known on PocketFives as perrymejsen, took second in the weekly PokerStars Sunday 500 and earned $40,000. There were 606 entrants that day and Odeen was one of six PocketFivers to finish in the top 10. Consequently, PocketFivers earned 46% of the prize pool. "It feels good," Odeen told PocketFives in an exclusive interview. "I've been running ridiculously well in that tournament and in general this year. I've gotten close a lot of times to hitting it big this year, and so now when I finally did it, it feels great!" He finished fifth in the Sunday 500 in December of last year for $18,000. Why has he managed to finish in the top five in the Sunday 500 twice in the last eight months? One word, according to him: variance. "It's variance mostly, of course," he said. "But it seems to be to my advantage when a tournament has a good structure. I did well in the deep-stacked SCOOPs too, so hopefully I'm doing something right when playing deep." In terms of who at the final table gave him the most trouble, Odeen perhaps unsurprisingly said maggess88, who ended up winning the Sunday 500 for $56,000. "He had position on me and even though I came in with the chip lead, he showed immediately that he wanted to battle," Odeen relayed. "I've never in my poker career felt as owned as I did in the heads-up against him. Hopefully he smashed the deck, but I would not be surprised if he didn't." Other large scores for Odeen include a sixth place finish in the Super Tuesday this month for $23,000 and a runner-up finish in a PokerStars.fr SCOOP tournament in March for $22,000, just to name a few. He is up to #33 worldwide in the PocketFives Online Poker Rankings, his all-time high, and is nearing $900,000 in career online tournament winnings. If you haven't already figured it out, his user name, perrymejsen, is a reference to Perry Mason (pictured), a detective from a 1950s and 1960s TV series. "I didn't know what it meant when I picked it," he laughed saying. "It was just something my mom called me when I was kid. She never told me where it came from." Perry Mason has also been the subject of various novels and movies over the years. The Swede started playing full-time one year ago after he graduated high school. He explained that besides the full-time focus, there have been other factors contributing to his recent success: "I've increased my average buy-in by a significant margin this year. But, I'm very sure I've been running hot as hell even though I have nothing to compare it to since I'm quite new in the business." He never held down a 9-5 job save summers while he was going to school. As he put it, "I had always wanted to make a living out of playing poker ever since I discovered the game through the Swedish television show 'Pokermiljonen.' And since I was still living with my parents at the time I graduated, I thought I would give it a shot. My mom was very supportive from the beginning. With my dad, it took a while, but he had no intention of stopping my dreams and, since I've been doing quite well lately, I don't think he has any problem with it." Odeen also has three brothers who play poker somewhat regularly, so that likely curbs whatever trepidations his parents might have. His friends are largely happy that he has been succeeding online. Odeen is now the seventh-ranked player in our Sweden poker community and tops in the county of Jonkopings Lan. Away from our great game, Odeen plays low division football and loves watching the sport on TV. His favorite team: Liverpool of the Premier League. He added, "Sports in general is something I enjoy doing and watching. I also like going out with my friends." Visit PokerStars for more details on the Sunday 500.

  2. Each week The PocketFives Milestone Report looks at the online poker players who are achieving career-best achievement or reaching new heights in the rankings Dennis 'Dberglin' Berglin Adds Name to $5 Million Earnings Club Dennis 'Dberglin' Berglin finished third in the PokerStars Sunday Warm-Up on March 26 for $27,375 to pass the $3 million in lifetime earnings mark. He is the 308th player to accomplish the feat and the 21st Swedish player to do it. Other Lifetime Earnings Milestones Two others hit significant career earnings marks this past week. 'OMGRubCasco' of Uruguay and Vladimir 'shabalinvlad' Shabalin of Russia. Both players joined the $1 million earnings club this past week. Only seven Uruguayan players have reached the $1 million mark while Russia's booming poker scene has now 63 players with that distinction. Logi 'rammin' Laxdal and 'Mikensonas' each hit the $500,000 earnings mark. Jerry Ödeen is Another Swede to Keep an Eye On While 'lena900' and 'C Darwin2' continue to keep a hold of the #1 and #2 spot in the PocketFives Rankings, they could soon be joined by yet another Swede in the top 10. Jerry ' perrymejsen' Ödeen hit an all-time high water mark for rankings this week when he climbed from #13 to #12. He is one of six Swedish players ranked in the top 12. Odeen was just one of 12 players ranked in the top 100 to achieve career highs. Included in that group is 'que_te_crio' who debuted in the top 100 for the first time at #90. The other 10: mbo90 from 29 to 18 Troy 'iamthedeck ftw' Quenneville from 30 to 25 brunovolks from 37 to 33 Sphinx87 from 61 to 50 kofi89 from 70 to 56 Toby 'JobyToyce' Joyce from 68 to 58 Adrijan 'adrijan_s' Sinishtaj from 80 to 62 Ryan 'newguy89' McEathron from 100 to 84 Andres 'lordzefiro' Buitrago from 92 to 91 Deividas 'Kvaselis' Kvaselis from 100 to 99 Renato Almeida Prado Valentim Hits Gigantic Score Renato Almeida 'bauruzito' Prado Valentim beat out 374 other players to win the $1,050 buy-in PokerStars Super Tuesday for $68,622 and 612.37 PLB points - both career highs. His previous biggest score cash in 2015 when he won $19,557 for finishing third in the PokerStars Bigger $109. In February, he earned 324.96 PLB points for winning the PokerStars Hot $215.
  3. The top-ranked player in Hungary, Andras 'probirs' Nemeth, won over $500,000 on Day 5 of the PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker and in the process prevented Roman 'RomeOpro' Romanovsky from collecting an astounding third title of the series. With the bumper buy-in Low, Medium and High Event #14 tournaments all coming to a conclusion on Thursday, the results saw 12 players collect six-figure scores, including Romanovsky who made it to heads-up play on his third bullet in the $25,000 buy-in 'High' and was looking to achieve his third win of the series after taking down Event #16 (High) the day before and Event #2 (High) on Monday. But, Nemeth was the man in his way and ultimately prevented the Ukrainian from achieving the feat to claim his own third career SCOOP title and the first-place prize of $576,087. Romanovsky received $442,299 as runner-up which left the current #12-ranked player in the world less than $200,000 away from the $10M career earnings accolade. Guntis 'poker@luffyD' Aleskins picked up his largest recorded online result to date after banking $240,765 for victory in Event #14 (Medium). Former Sunday Million runner-up Aleskins defeated 'engantil' heads-up for the win, with the latter taking away $171,625 for second place. Also on the final table was 'Lena900' who collected $87,208 in fourth-place and helped 'Team Sweden' close the gap on 'Team BITBRYE' in their much talked about six-figure series prop bet. The UK's Ben 'jenbizzle' Jones overcome Brazil's Ivanildo Limeira in Event #14 (Low) to pick up his first SCOOP title, and a career-best recorded online cash of $162,039. Jones, who is a former Super Tuesday, Sunday Warm-Up and Sunday Supersonic champion, came through the 5,700 entrants field and navigated his way to victory on a final table that also featured 2017 WCOOP Main event third-place finisher, Machadada RS, and Chester20o. Event #15 saw three six-max PLO rebuy tournaments take place with 'Maizeruba', 'igor69' and 'Tr!pleeeee' all adding SCOOP titles to their names. 'Maizeruba' won $9,872 after coming through a 3,891 player field in the 'Low' and 'igor69' was the victor in the 'Medium' for $32,858, after seeing off former Pocketfives world no.#1 'cal42688' into third place. In the 'High' 'Tr!pleeeee' took away a cool $87,042 after beating Mike 'goleafsgoeh' Leah, Jerry 'Perrymejsen' Ödeen and Adam 'adamyid' Owen on the final table. Christopher 'Apotheosis92' Kruk, who featured on the Event #16 (Medium) final table on Day 4, made another SCOOP appearance on Day 5 after collecting the silver medal in Event #13 (High) Triple Draw 2-7 for $38,850. The Canadian was beaten to the top prize of $57,720 by 'merla888' after they successfully came through the 111 player field. 'TheRabbitFR' made up for their runner-up spot in Event #10 (Medium) by going all the way in Event 13 (Medium) to win $15,480. 'TheRabbitFR' beat 'SexualDrag0n' in heads-up play, on a final table that saw Pocketfives members 'komarolo22' and 'hummylun' achieve fourth and fifth place respectively. In Event #13 (Low), 'hapsmoney' beat out 1,726 other entrants to earn the victory and $5,441. 'Flakon2010' was rewarded with $4,058.45 for second place with 'Moergi' picking up $3,022.45 in third place.

  4. The European poker world has had its attention focused squarely on Barcelona for the past week as 1,227 players entered World Poker Tour Barcelona to create one of the biggest WPT events in history. Sunday's final table saw Vitalijs Zavorotnijs go wire-to-wire to claim his first major title and $678,000. Alain Zeidan started the final table with just 16 big blinds and it took him just eight hands to find a hand to go to battle with. From UTG, Boris Kolev raised to 250,000 with [poker card="qc"][poker card="qh"] and Niko Coop called from the cutoff with [poker card="kd"][poker card="js"]. Zeidan shoved for 1,300,000 with [poker card="9c"][poker card="9s"] from the small blind and Zavorotnijs called from the big blind with [poker card="ad"][poker card="kh"]. Kolev called and Koop folded. Kolev and Zavorotnijs checked through the [poker card="qd"][poker card="5h"][poker card="2s"] flop. After the [poker card="3d"] turn, Zavorotnijs check-folded to Kolev's bet of 850,000. Zeldan actually made a set of his own with the [poker card="9d"] river but it wasn't enough to be Kolev's top set and he was eliminated in sixth place. It took an hour of play to get another player to bust and once again Zavorotnijs and Kolev were involved. Zavorotnijs raised to 400,000 from the button with [poker card="ad"][poker card="5c"], Kolev called from the small blind with [poker card="tc"][poker card="ts"] before Jerry Odeen moved all in for 975,000 from the big blind with [poker card="qd"][poker card="jc"]. Zavorotnijs and Kolev called and then checked through the [poker card="kc"][poker card="9s"][poker card="4s"][poker card="6s"][poker card="8d"] runout to give Kolev the pot and eliminate Odeen in fifth. The $180,000 score is the biggest of Odeen's live or online career. Two hands after losing half of his stack to Zavorotnijs, Koop was the next to go. Kolev raised to 400,000 with [poker card="ad"][poker card="qs"] from UTG. Next to act, Koop responded by moving all in for 3,000,000 with [poker card="ah"][poker card="qc"]. Zavorotnijs called from the big blind with [poker card="td"][poker card="ts"] and Kolev folded. The [poker card="jd"][poker card="7d"][poker card="5h"] flop changed nothing and neither did the [poker card="7h"] turn or [poker card="3s"] river and Koop was out in fourth place. Zavorotnijs continued to pick up hands and apply pressure and picked up another elimination because of it. Kolev opened to 400,000 from the button with [poker card="as"][poker card="3d"], Eric Sfez shoved from the small blind for 3,600,000 with [poker card="ah"][poker card="9c"] and Zavorotnijs called from the big blind with [poker card="ad"][poker card="kh"], allowing Kolev to fold. The board ran out [poker card="kc"][poker card="jh"][poker card="5s"][poker card="9s"][poker card="8d"] to give both players a pair, but Zavorotnijs' pair of kings was best to eliminate Sfez in third. Zavorotnijs began heads up play with a 3.5-1 lead over Kolev and it took him about 10 minutes to finish the job. Zavorotnijs opened to 425,000 with [poker card="ks"][poker card="9s"] before Kolev re-raised to 1,700,000 with a[poker card="ad"][poker card="qc"] and Zavorotnijs called. After the [poker card="as"][poker card="jc"][poker card="4h"] flop, Kolev bet 1,200,000 and Zavorotnijs called. The turn was the [poker card="7s"] and Kolev moved all in for 5,700,000. Zavorotnijs used two time banks before calling. The river was the [poker card="2s"] to give Zavorotnijs a flush and the WPT Barcelona title, eliminating Kolev in second place. Final Table Payouts Vitalijs Zavorotnijs - $678,000 Boris Kolev - $423,750 Eric Sfez - $318,174 Niko Koop - $242,950 Jerry Odeen - $180,800 Alain Zeidan - $135,600
  5. 'Ifkata' took home this Sunday's biggest prize in online poker after coming through an increased 11,863 player-field in the PokerStars $109 Sunday Million. The prize pool was set at $1,186,300, which showed a turnaround after last week's missed guarantee, and when just the final three remained, a money-deal was agreed to. 'platin32' then hit the rail with their share worth $74,784, before Croatia's '5 banki' lost out in heads-up and exited with $84,327 as runner-up. 'Ifkata' was left to claim the title and took away $109,996 as the victor. 'Negriin' defeated Johannes 'Greenstone25' Korsar heads-up to win the PokerStars $2,100 Sunday High Roller. The 69 entrants meant the prize pool just crept over the guarantee, with $138,000 collected, and the top eight places paid. 'skippy109641' received the bronze medal worth $21,525 before Sweden's Korstar fell at the final hurdle and banked $28,315 as runner-up, with Argentina's 'Negriin' adding their name to the winner's list and picked up the $37,247 top-prize. Jerry 'Perrymejsen' Ödeen topped a 910 player-field to bank over $69,000 in the PokerStars $530 Bounty Builder High Roller. The Swedish pro, who has over $5.7m in online earnings, defeated 'AAmichiAA' heads-up to win $37,487 + $32,479 in bounty prizes. 'AAmichiAA' exited with $27,477 + $4,859 in second place, with Norway's 'Tinas21' awarded the bronze medal for $20,141 + $10,925. The UK's 'ImRichAreU?' increased their bankroll by another $23,988 after they topped a 767 player-field in the PokerStars $215 Sunday Warm-Up. Canada's three-time SCOOP champion 'D PitcherAK' just missed out on a podium spot and took away $9,960 in fourth place before Lithuania's 'parednis' collected the bronze for $13,725. The final two players then agree to a money deal, but with an extra $3,000 left to play for they battled on before 'tikidiii' fell as runner-up for $20,988, and 'ImRichAreU?' took the title. This week's partypoker $1,050 Sunday High Roller Terminator title went to 'LornaDoom' following a heads-up battle against 'KONY2012'. Former world ranked #2 Michael 'mczhang' Zhang took fourth place for $5,362 + $2,900 in bounties, before 'UhlenPoker' hit the rail in third place for $10,720 + $4,172. With the final bounty prizes on the line, 'LornaDoom' prevailed and banked $10,731 + $14,247, with 'KONY2012' awarded $10,720 + $4,172 in second. The familiar name of Austria's #1 ranked 'onehundredeyes' once again appeared at the top of the partypoker prize ladder after victory in the $2,100 Sunday High Gladiator. After 'NoisiaRadio' departed in third place from the 79 player-field for $11,719 and no bounty prizes, the final battle saw 'z-boooo's deep run come to an end for $16,920 + $11,615, with 'onehundredeyes' adding another gold medal to their collection.

  6. Saturday might have been an off day for the final nine players in the 2019 World Series of Poker, but there was plenty of other action including Daniel Negreanu getting heads-up for a bracelet for the second time this summer and a longtime PocketFiver winning his first piece of WSOP hardware. Jerry Odeen Wins $1,500 Mixed NLHE/PLO He might only be 24 years old, but Sweden's Jerry Odeen has been dreaming about winning a WSOP bracelet for nearly a decade. Odeen, who has been as high as #12 in the PocketFives Rankings, made his dream come true on Saturday by winning the $1,500 Mixed No Limit Hold'em/Pot Limit Omaha event. “This is something I always wanted since I started playing poker. I started watching poker when I was like 15 years old now I’m here like nine, ten years later. I got the bracelet, it feels pretty surreal actually,” Odeen said. “I always said I’m not going to quit before I get a bracelet. I had one close call before, I got fourth. It’s achievable but obviously, need a lot of luck. I don’t think I lost a single all in. It’s tough to lose then if you don’t lose all ins.” Odeen beat England's Peter Linton heads up for the bracelet and added $304,793 to his lifetime earnings. Linton had to settle for $188,368 as the runner-up. Adam Demersseman finished third for $135,093. Final Table Payouts Jerry Odeen - $304,793 Peter Linton - $188,368 Adam Demersseman - $135,093 Lucas Greenwood - $98,027 Ayaz Mahmood ($71,979) Eddie Blumenthal - $53,490 Jeremy Kottler - $40,236 Gary Bolden - $30,640 Rania Nasreddine - $23,625 Keith Tilston Denies Daniel Negreanu $100K High Roller Victory Keith Tilston might have been the least known player at the final table of the $100,000 High Roller, but that didn't stop him from emerging victorious and in the process prevented Daniel Negreanu from winning his seventh bracelet and taking over the WSOP Player of the Year lead. Tilston beat Negreanu heads-up to secure the bracelet and a $2,792,406 payday. His career earnings are now just over $6.4 million, but for Tilston, the win was as much about proving that he has the mettle to play the big buy-in events as much as it was about the money. “I do play a lot of high roller events and I feel good to know I can at least hang with these guys. Obviously, there’s a lot of luck in each individual tournament and you gotta run well," Tilston said. "I certainly don’t claim to be as good as a lot of these guys, but it feels good I can at least hang with them.” Negreanu now has two runner-up finishes this summer. The first came in the $10,000 Seven Card Stud event. This second-place finish added 630.2 POY points to Negreanu's total and moved him to fifth place, 333.04 points behind current leader Robert Campbell. Had Negreanu won, he would have been ahead of the rest of the field by 297.46 points. Nick Schulman finished third for $1,187,802, the biggest WSOP cash of his career.
