  5. Make it a month for the #1 ranked player in the world, ‘C Darwin2’. The Swedish superstar continues his vice-like grip atop the PocketFives Worldwide Rankings, holding a 1500 PLB point lead over the next closest player. His continued success presents a gap that would be extremely difficult to bridge in a single week and makes it look like the reigning crusher may very well not only start February in the same spot, but stay put for weeks to come. However, there is a new #2 in the world. Just last week in this column it was pointed out that the 800 point gap between ‘C Darwin2’s countryman,
  6. I F*cked Up is a PocketFives series where the game’s best tell stories of where they got it wrong. Mistakes happen every day in poker and let these players be the first to tell you it happens to everyone. If you are curious why German players are so proficient at No Limit Hold’em, consider this quote from 2017 WSOP Europe One Drop winner Dominik Nitsche. When asked to recall a hand that he misplayed and learned from, Nitsche noted it was hard for him to come up with a hand. “The way I play poker, I don’t learn from mistakes that way. I just study all the time. I don’t really make mistake
