[caption width="640"] Jordan 'JWPRODIGY' Westmorland won the PokerStars Sunday Grand this weekend.[/caption] As the poker world now turns its sights towards the 2016 World Series of Poker, there were a number of players who came up big over the weekend in online tournaments. One of those is longtime PocketFiver Jordan 'JWPRODIGY' Westmorland. The 63rd-ranked player in the world outlasted a field of 200 to win the $1,050 buy-in PokerStars Sunday Grand for $69,852.

  2. [caption width="639"] Jordan 'JWPRODIGY' Westmorland talks about the importance of exploring the sights at each poker stop[/caption] When you get caught up in grinding, then grinding some more, then playing a quick cash game in between meals, you can almost forget where you are. Whether you're at home with the sun shining brightly outside or sitting just feet from the Eiffel Tower, if you don't take a moment to soak up your surroundings, you're missing out on potentially life-changing experiences. One poker player who has taken this philosophy to heart is Jordan 'JWPRODIGY' Westmorland, who won the PokerStars Sunday Grand in the final days of May for $69,000, helping raise his lifetime cash total to almost $4 million. "The best part about choosing poker as a career path is the freedom aspect of it," he said. "Therefore, the number one interest that coincides with my work is travel. When I was younger, I'd never leave the hotel when I was on a poker trip. I'm focusing more on getting out and learning about all of the unique countries around the world. I still live out of my suitcase, but I'm loosely based in Mexico for now." A visit to Panama altered his views of what an optimal trip should be like. Rather than getting out and exploring the famed Panama Canal or checking out Panama City's quaint historic district, he camped out in his hotel room and grinded online. It was as if the outside world didn't exist. "I have a memory tattooed in my mind that perfectly explains why it's important to leave your hotel," he said. "It was my first time to Panama and it was for an LAPT series. I kid you not, I did not see the light of day. People would ask, 'What was Panama like?' My response was, 'I have no idea.' I think because I've been doing this for almost six years professionally, I've become better at the balance aspect of things. It's a simple philosophy I've adopted: work hard, play hard. I think when you step away from the tables, it's so important to max your days out with all kinds of fun." Westmorland said that at the time, it seemed perfectly normal to stay inside, grind, and socialize with other poker players. It was only after he got home and his non-poker playing friends and family asked him about the trip that he recognized he might not have spent his time well. "From what I've experienced with my group and seen in other groups, it's mentally taxing to play an entire day of live poker or online poker that all you want to do is grab a drink and dinner with everyone afterwards," he explained. "I think that's why I've come up with a rule of going early to live trips to tour the place before work begins." The Sunday Grand score was the third largest of his career and capped off a month of May that also saw Westmorland take third in a $109 No Limit Hold'em SCOOP event and win the PokerStars Weekender for over $80,000 combined. "May was spent in Cabo San Lucas," he said. "We had these two incredible homes and I believe there were 13 of us. I'll be honest, though, there wasn't a lot of sightseeing. We were all in party mode to the max." While he didn't sightsee, Westmorland and company were often spotted at the beachside Mango Deck Restaurant & Bar, ensuring that he soaked in a little vitamin D. "It's a beach club that really pops off," he said. "It had a great atmosphere, whether it was the break-dancing routine on stage, the beer chugging contest, or musical chairs with lovely female tourists." His company in Cabo included Alex 'lynskey99' Lynskey, 'Doesoner', 'Andyhin22', Jonathan 'Monster Dong' Karamalikis, '2k14', 'Corlusion', Ben 'bennybunny18' Richardson, Timothy 'Weygang' English, Stevan 'random.chu' Chew, Angelina 'ARichDesign' Rich, and Benjamin 'Spektah' Leblond. Following SCOOP, Westmorland headed southeast to Guadalajara, Mexico. There, he plans to follow his same philosophy: work hard, play hard. "After you either bagged chips or fizzled an entire session, it's hard to rally," he said. "The detox part is the best part. It's where I turn my brain completely off of poker and just live in the moment." After his stint in Mexico, Westmorland will migrate north across the US border to Las Vegas for the World Series of Poker Main Event, which starts in a month. He's not a huge fan of Las Vegas itself, which is why you'll find him 2,400 kilometers south right now until the big $10,000 buy-in tournament starts at the Rio on July 9. His "get out and see the world" mantra has seemed to work so far. Westmorland has racked up two six-figure online scores over the years and has almost 400 top-three finishes. He's up to #40 worldwide in the PocketFives Online Poker Rankings, two spots off his all-time high set in 2013, and just passed 4,200 in the money finishes.
  3. Every week The PocketFives Milestone Report looks at the online poker players who are achieving career-best achievement or reaching new heights in the rankings Chris ‘Big Huni’ Hunichen Joins $10M Club Chris Moorman did it four years ago. Since then just three other players have managed to hit the $10M lifetime earnings mark and all three have done it in the last nine months. Bryan Paris (February), Nicolas Fierro (March) and Sebastian Sikorski(May) now have some company. Chris Hunichen hit the $10 million mark this week and he did it in style. Hunichen won the partypoker $530 High Roller on October 3 for a $15,430.90 score. The final table also included Fierro and current #1-ranked ‘lena900’. The next closest player to the $10 million milestone is Sweden’s Johannes ‘Greenstone25’ Korsar with $9,928,785.20. Jordan ‘JWPRODIGY’ Westmorland Hits $5M While Hunichen was busy joining the elite group of players at the very top of the all-time earnings list, Jordan ‘JWPRODIGY’ Westmorland was doing his part to join him. Westmorland, who know calls Thailand home, became the 87th player to pass $5 million in lifetime earnings. Westmorland also broke through this latest milestone with a big win. He topped an 82-player field in the $320 PokerStars Six Max NLHE event on October 1 to win $6,639.79. That final table also included ‘lena900’. Hunichen and Westmorland weren’t the only players to hit lifetime earnings milestones this past week. Scott ‘Aggro Santos’ Margereson, the #17-ranked player in the United Kingdom, hit $4 million in earnings while Toby ‘JobyToyce’ Joyce, the #3-ranked player in Ireland, hit $2 million. Joao Victor ‘joaovalli’ Barroso Valli and Rômulo ‘Primao89’ Araújo each cracked the $1 million mark. Ramiro 'rayastar' Petrone Breaks Top 20 Ramiro 'rayastar' Petrone was one of nine players that managed to hit a career-high ranking inside of the top 100 this week. Petrone, whose previous best was #23 in the world, now sits at #18 after posting three qualifying cashes this past week for a total of 532.61 PLB points. João ‘lofidream’ Leão cracked the top 100 for the first time in his career, moving from #102 to #98. Other players who hit career-best rankings inside the Top 100: Pedro ‘PaDiLhA SP’ Padilha - #28 to #27 rolandbauer - #35 to #31 Andrey ’drupalucker’ Chernokov - #50 to #49 Mikensonas - #74 to #60 tiarc - #87 to #69 David ‘davaman’ Lopez - #45 to #44 Patrick ‘thebigdog09’ Brooks - #82 to #79
  4. The final day of partypoker POWERFEST was jam-packed with 15 events, including two Championship events. Viktor Blom and Sami Kelopuro might have been the two biggest names to find the winner's circle on Sunday, but they didn't take home the biggest score. 'HaHaHakim' beat out 236 other players in Event #69 Super High Roller ($5,200 Championship Event) to take home the title and $210,183.20. That score came after a deal with 'AndreshhParty94' that allowed the runner-up to pocket $206,818.31. Jordan 'JWPRODIGY' Westmorland took home $124,017.50 for his third place finish. Latvian 'SNGoenka' beat 'GuyFromTiltBook' heads-up in Event #67 High Roller ($530 Slow, Eight Max) to earn $58,944. 'GuyFromTiltBook' settled for $41,952 as runner-up while 'RosenheimCops' won $28,448 for a third place result. Kelopuro beat 593 other players in Event #68 High Roller ($1,050 Deep, Eight Max) for a $109,414.80 score. Runner-up 'tikidiii16' banked $77,873.40 and 'GlitchSystem' picked up $52,806.60 for finishing third. 'PotatoLottery' picked up $159,455.20 between prize pool and bounties for winning Event #70 High Roller ($2,100 Championship Event, PKO, Eight Max). Runner-up 'EggsBenedict' pocketed $81,540.66 while 'WhoIsICM' banked $62,538 for finishing in third spot. Westmorland wasn't done after his six-figure score. The American pro who is now the #1-ranked player in Thailand beat out 223 other players to win Event #71 High Roller ($520 Deep, Turbo, Eight Max) and earn $20,313.87. 'SirStanleyRoyce' took home $19,984.26 as part of a deal with Westmorland. Third place finisher 'Dark_Poker' ended up with $12,111.40. Viktor 'isildur1' Blom beat 'GuyFromTiltBook' for the Event #72 High Roller ($1,050 PKO, Fast, Eight Max) title and $26,811.22. He also picked up an additional $39,170.64.

  5. Uruguay's 'pasula09' battled through a 10,232 field in the PokerStars $109 Sunday Million to turn $109 into $106,859. The guarantee was hit after the prize pool was set at $1,023,200, with a place at the final table of nine worth $7,632. After the field had been cut to just the final three, Brazil's José 'neto gol' Queiroz da Costa Neto picked up his second Sunday Million bronze medal three years after his first, and this time collected $55,238. The final battle saw former SCOOP champion Fedor 'ftruncev' Truntsev just missed out on adding another accolade to his poker CV, and departed as runner-up for $76,826, with 'pasula09' crowned the champion. Paul 'topdoll827' Newey defeated the recently unmasked 'bencb789' to win the PokerStars $2,100 Sunday High Roller for $37,895. The prize pool was set at $156,000 after 78 entries took part. Canada's Sam 'Str8$$$Homey' Greenwood took fifth place for $14,345, with Thomas 'WushuTM' Mühlöcker banking $18,288 in fourth. Mustapha 'lasagnaaammm' Kanit collected the bronze medal for $23,315, before 'bencb789' who this week revealed his identity to the world for the first time via his 'RaiseYourEdge' youtube channel, fell at the final hurdle for $29,724, as Newey picked up the win. The PokerStars $530 Bounty Builder High Roller title went to 'schocer' after they topped a 829 player-field to bank over $53,000. 'schocer' defeated 'ZiZZi_7707' heads-up to win the final bounty battle and collected $28,527 + $25,300 in bounties following a money-deal. 'ZiZZi_7707' added $32,178 + $18,167 to their bankroll as runner-up, with 'leitalopez' taking third place for $18,820 + $2,273. Jordan 'JWPRODIGY' Westmorland took down PokerStars $215 Sunday Warm-Up for $25,485 after topping a 250 player-field. Thailand based American player got the better of 'LeslieGroves' heads-up, with the latter departing as runner-up with $18,494. 'LaurinKing' collected the bronze medal alongside $13,421. 'SchelampigaUhu' won $21,600 after beating Thomas 'onehundredeyes' Mühlöcker heads-up in the partypoker $1,050 Sunday High Roller DeepStack. The prize pool just crept over the $75,000 guarantee after 76 entries took to the tables, and 'mogvision' took away $10,260 in third-place, paving the way for 'SchelampigaUhu' to win the final battle, and eliminating Mühlöcker into second-place for $14,820. Over on GGPoker, 'LaurisL91' and 'ImLividBuddy' both added Sunday Blade $5k titles to their names. Both players came through 32 player-fields to claim their respective wins and were each awarded with a top prize worth $64,840. 'LaurisL91' defeated 'pDNA' to claim their victory, while 'Olekonjole' fell as runner-up at the hands of 'ImLividBuddy.'
