  2.

  3. [caption width="640"] 'C Darwin2' picked up two big wins this week to stretch his overall lead atop the PocketFives Rankings[/caption] The problem with being the #1-ranked online poker player in the world is that the rest of the world is chasing you. A bit of a rungood from any of the contenders puts your position in peril. Unless of course, you're Swedish superstar 'C Darwin2'. Thanks to three qualifying cashes over the past week, 'C Darwin2' now sits 1,201.41 ahead over any other competitor. Things started with a bang for 'C Darwin2' this past week. He took down the PokerStars High Roller Series Event #3 for $45,291 and 504.98 points. He followed that up with a win in partypoker's Heavyweight Eliminator for $6,125 and 158.11 points. He rounded things out with an eighth-place finish in the PokerStars High Rollers Series Event #10 for $12,269 and 194.35 points. Steven 'SvZff' van Zadelhoff, 'lena900'and Joao 'joaosimaobh' Simao all maintained spots #2 - #4 respectively, but another Swedish player worked his way into the #5 spot this week. 'Sheater', a former #1-ranked player, didn't put in his usual amount of volume, but did pick up 240.67 points thanks to a fourth-place finish in the PokerStars Daily 500 and PokerStars High Roller Series Event #21 on November 30. He wasn't the only former #1 to make a big move this past week. Fabrizio 'SixthSenSe19' Gonzalez picked up two wins on partypoker this week to add 363.05 points and move from #11 to #6. There were four players who moved back into the Top 25 this week. Russia's 'hellohellohello' went from #28 to #16, Patrick 'pleno1' Leonard went from #35 to #21, Germany's 'nilsef' from #29 to #23 and 'kofi89' moved up from #30 to #25.

  4. Each month, The PocketFives Milestone Report looks at the online poker players who are achieving career-best achievement or reaching new heights in the rankings. A Trio Of PocketFivers Hit $2 Million Three longtime members of PocketFives climbed over the $2 million lifetime earnings mark this week. Mikhail ‘zinka’ Galitskiy, currently ranked #82 in the world, pushed past the mark with his runner-up finish in a $109 PokerStars tournament on March 9, taking home $2,727. The Russian has been on fire in early March outright winning four different tournaments, highlighted by his victory in the PokerStars Daily 500 for nearly $12,000. In total, through the first half of the month, he’s recorded six four-figure or greater scores. Jonathan ‘Gil3000’ Gill, Birmingham, UK’s #1-ranked player, scored a victory in the PokerStars $55 Daily Marathon on March 7 for over $8,000 to help him top $2 million. Gill, a one-time PocketFives Triple Crown winner, received his big push to the milestone back in February with a second place finish in Event #45 of partypoker’s Powerfest for $72,743, nearly a career-high score. Gill’s countryman, Ben ‘gs08bjohnson’ Jenkins, is the third member of the $2 million club this week. The UK mid-stakes grinder nabbed a podium finish in the PokerStars $22 Mini Sunday Supersonic for just under $6,500 on March 11 and combined with his victory in another $22 PokerStars tournament for $885 on the same day, hit $2 million. More Million Dollar Badges Four players earned their $1 million lifetime earning badges this week. ’Mihai Nutt’ and ‘aagoodfold’, both hailing from Romania were joined by Ukraine’s #7-ranked player ’1111AA1111’ and Brazil’s Guilherme ‘pelckito’ Franco in hitting the mark. Franco has been making a push to join the Worldwide Top 100 lately, currently sitting ranked at #103 in the world. ‘rayastar’ Changes Name To ‘Ramiro’ But You Can Call Him Elite Eight players surged up the Top 100 of the PocketFives Worldwide Rankings to reach new career highs including Uruguay’s superstar ‘kofi89’ who sits just outside the top 10 at #11 and London, UK’s ‘Kashmiri’ who debuts in the top 100 at #85. But all eyes should be on Argentinan Ramiro ‘Ramiro’ Petrone (the player formerly known as ‘rayastar’) who on the heels of a massive career-high cash for over $282,000 became the #3-ranked player in the world. Petrone has been a regular in this column, steadily climbing to new heights just about every week in 2018. As well as climbing the ranks of the Top 100 he also just recently crossed the $3 million lifetime earnings barrier. Now, this is where things get really tough for 'Ramiro'. The #3 ranking has seen its share of contenders in recent weeks, all looking to jump into the #2 spot to challenge the perpetually top ranked ‘C Darwin2’. All of them have stalled out at #3. Petrone has already proven he’s elite, but the question is - will the Buenos Aires pro make history?

  5. Online poker is a global game with players logging on and grinding from every part of the world. Every country has a #1-ranked player and here we take a look at some of those that lead the way in their home countries. Sami ‘LarsLuzak’ Kelopuro - Finland Known for his involvement in the high stakes online cash games, Sami ‘LarsLuzak’ Kelopuro put on a clinic this fall when it came to his tournament play. So much so that it elevated him to a career-high ranking of #15 in the world and #1 in his home country of Finland. He grinded both partypoker’s and PokerStars’ fall series stringing together one of the most impressive runs of PLB qualifying cashes of the year. He racked up an amazing 5,234.40 PLB points in September alone which was more than enough to jettison him into the worldwide top-25 and overtake countryman ‘European’ for the lead in Finland. His highlight score during that run was his victory in partypoker's POWERFEST #142 SHR Championship Event where he won $317,190 and accumulated 1,278.67 PLB points. There are some pros that only register for tournaments when the major series come around and traditionally, Kelopuro has been one of them. However, he’s returned to tournaments this month putting in light volume but still producing results. On November 6 he won the PokerStars High Roller Club $530 Omania Six Max for $11,112, his first major score since the end of September. Kelopuro currently has a 1000 PLB point lead over the field in Finland’s rankings making him a favorite to end 2018 as the #1-ranked player. Aleksei ‘LeshiyAS’ Smirnov - Estonia Estonia’s #1-ranked player is Aleksei ‘LeshiyAS’ Smirnov, a constant presence in the worldwide top-50. A consistent grinder, Smirnov posted a career-high cash back in September when he took down PokerStars WCOOP Event #43-L ($2,100 NLHE Eight Max) for $142,602.89 and 1,001 PLB points. Since that time he’s been on his grind, posting over 80 cashes in November alone for a total of over $35,000. Five of his cashes were for four-figures with his November highlight coming with a victory in the November 3 edition of the PokerStars Hot $215 for nearly $7,000. Smirnov needs to continue to keep his foot on the gas in order to stay ahead in Estonia as fellow countryman ‘markovitsus’ is hot on his heels, only roughly 40 PLB points behind him in the standings. Smirnov is currently ranked #40 in the world. Michael ‘mczhang’ Chi Zhang - United Kingdom The reigning king of the United Kingdom continues to be Michael ‘mczhang’ Chi Zhang. Not only ranked #1 in his home country, Zhang has spent the better part of two months as a top-5 player in the world, reaching as high as #2. Zhang’s rise through the rankings has been well-documented on PocketFives. He absolutely crushed during POWERFEST and WCOOP, continually setting new career-high cashes. His ultimate score was his third-place finish in the POWERFEST $25,500 buy-in $3M GTD Championship Event where he took home $468,000. For Zhang that was but one of four six-figure cashes in September representing one of the best single months of any online poker player in 2018. Perhaps for the young Brit, earning over $1.7 million in a single month is enough to keep him satisfied for some time. He hasn’t been seen firing up online tournaments since the end of September. Zhang currently sits ranked #4 in the world but will likely hold down the #1 spot in the UK for some time to come as he holds an over 2000 PLB point lead over his closest competition, Patrick ‘pleno1’ Leonard. ‘kofi89’ - Uruguay ‘kofi89’ leads the way in Uruguay. Although he has been putting in light volume in the month of November, he has still been able to record some impressive results. ‘kofi89’ has only 10 total cashes so far in November and seven of them are for four-figures or more. This month alone, he has recorded two outright victories. The first is a win in the November 6 edition of the High Roller Club ($530 Daily Supersonic Six Max) for $28,107 and 383.73 PLB points. He followed that up the very next day by taking down the partypoker $30K GTD Bounty Hunter for another $8,348 and 181.55 PLB points. In total ‘kofi89’ has sought $57,000 in November earnings with half a month to go. Currently sitting as the #12-ranked player in the world, he’s has been constantly on the verge of returning to the top 10, where he set a career-high ranking of #10. There is no end in sight to ‘kofi89’s reign in Uruguay as the only player close to him is former #1-ranked superstar Fabrizio ‘SixthSenSe19’ Gonzalez. ‘kofi89’ surpassed Gonzales thanks to a massive win during the October 15 Black Chip Poker OSS $1M Main Event for $167,500 and 1,001.25 PLB points. The surge in PLB points in October has put ‘kofi89’ 2500 PLB points above Gonzales. A new major milestone is right around the corner for the Montevideo resident as ‘kofi89’ is on the verge of eclipsing $4 million in lifetime earnings. ‘lena900’ - Sweden It stands to reason that if you are the #1-ranked player in the world, that you are also the #1-ranked player in your home country. That certainly is the case for ‘lena900’. The superstar Swede has been atop the rankings in just about every category since SCOOP ended and he continued to lead the way in his talent-rich home country. It seems that ‘lena900’s only real competition these days is himself. He has nearly $12.8 million in lifetime earnings and could very well be the second player to ever reach $13 million by the end of the year. He has a nearly 2000 PLB point lead over his fellow countryman ‘C Darwin2’ almost assuring him to not only end the year as the #1-ranked player in the world but to also capture the prestigious Yearly PLB award. One look at ‘lena900’s results will give you a snapshot of his story. He’s a pro’s pro who grinds like he just discovered the game. Through the first half of November he already, remarkably, has 87 cashes for over $200,000. Four of those cashes are for five-figures. His largest takedown of the month was a first-place finish in the partypoker Sunday Main Event High Roller for $36,629 and 456.07 PLB points. There appears to be no slowing down ‘lena900’ as he continues to dominate, not just Sweden, but the world of online poker.
  6. The #1-ranked player in Uruguay also topped the October PLB race. ‘kofi89’ used consistent results and a single mammoth victory to accumulate 4,383.78 PLB points, more than 1,000 above the closest competitor, to take the monthly title. In total, ‘kofi89’ picked up eight cashes of five-figures or more. His monthly highlights included victories in the PokerStars $215 Fast Friday for $14,993, the Bounty Builder Series 23 for $31,371, the Hotter $109 for $16,389 and the partypoker Sunday Bounty Hunter High Roller for $20,896. He went on an incredible heater, seemingly taking down another big tournament every other day. That was all punctuated by his victory in the Winning Poker Network OSS $1M Main Event for $167,500 and 1,001.25 PLB points. He would have likely won the October PLB race without this score, but this certainly put him well out of reach of any other competitor. It bolstered his worldwide rank to #12, just two spots away from his career high of #10. It also puts him just under $100,000 from reaching the amazing achievement of $4 million in lifetime earnings. A distant #2 in the month was the current #1-ranked player in the world ‘lena900’ (3,226.25.). Even among his peers of dominant Swedes, ‘lena900’ is known as an online poker workhorse and this month was no different. He cashed in over 160 different events in the month of October. In total, ‘lena900’ picked up over $286,000 and added it to his $12.5 million in career online earnings, second in history only to Chris ‘moorman1’ Moorman. ‘lena900’ made waves in the PokerStars Bounty Builder Series 67 ($530 NLHE High Roller) where he took second place for $45,728 and 429.73 PLB points. He backed that up with a victory in the October 16 edition of the partypoker Bounty Hunter High Roller for another $30,474 and 339.50 PLB points. ‘lena900’ may have come in second during the month of October, however, the superstar Swede still leads in the overall 2018 PLB leaderboard, which will be a tight race between him and his countryman ‘C Darwin2’ in the final month and a half of the year. In the #3 spot for October was the #6-ranked player in the world, Latvia’s ‘DamageAP’ (2717.80). He finished the month strong first with a runner-up finish in the October 21 edition of the partypoker Sunday Main Event High Roller for $18,936 and 239.25 PLB points.
