  1. The 2015 World Series of Poker kicked off on Wednesday with two events: the $500 Casino Employees Event and a $5,000 No Limit Hold'em tournament. The latter had a field of 422 and, after one day of play, Ludovic ludovi333Geilich and Joe ender555Ebanks (pictured) sat in second and third, respectively, behind chip leader Darryl Ronconi. --- Tournament Poker Edgeis the only poker training site dedicated exclusively to MTTs and features over 1,000 training videos, blogs, articles, podcasts and a dedicated strategy forum for members. Check Tournament Poker Edge out on Twitter. --- Ronconi will come armed to Day 2 on Thursday with a stack of 211,000. He's the only player to pass the 200,000-chip mark. Geilich has a stack of 194,000, while Ebanks bagged up 182,000. Check out PocketFives' WSOP coveragefor the latest updates on online poker players. It's sponsored by Tournament Poker Edge. A total of 171 players survived the first day of the $5,000 NLHE tournament, the second event on the 2015 WSOP schedule. At stake is a $466,000 top prize and a WSOP bracelet. Forty-five players will finish in the money and play resumes on Tuesday at 2:00pm PT from the Rio in Las Vegas, the site of the annual WSOP. Two recent WSOP Main Event champions are left in the field: Greg gregy20723Merson (pictured) and Martin Jacobson. Merson chipped up on one of the final hands of the day, after putting in a raise on an 8-2-6-7-5 board and getting his opponent to fold. He finished the day with a stack of 100,000. Jacobson ended Day 1 in seventh place. Then there was Phil Hellmuth. The "Poker Brat's" distrust of Europeans was on full display on Wednesday. In one hand late in the evening, Hellmuth's opponent moved all-in on a board reading 6-6-10-3-5. Hellmuth, who needed to commit his remaining chip stack in order to call, tanked and commented, "If you didn't have an accent, I would've folded a long time ago." Nice. He eventually laid it down and his opponent showed aces. Hellmuth ended Day 1 with 34,000. One of the final eliminations of Day 1 went to former #1 ranked PocketFiver Calvin cal42688Anderson, who committed his chips with K-10 on a 10-high board, but ran into pocket queens. Anderson was at the same table as Jason treysfull21Mercier, who won three SCOOP titlesearlier this month. Like Anderson, Mercier was ousted on Day 1. WSOP.com provided several updates on PocketFiver Jason JAKoon1985Koon (pictured). He fittingly sucked out on Maria Ho's pocket queens with pocket fives after flopping a set and then won a race with quads later in the day with pocket nines against K-Q. However, he failed to make it to Day 2. Here are the top 10 chip stacks in the $5,000 NLHE event, according to WSOP.com: 1 Darryl Ronconi - 211,100 2 Ludovic ludovi333Geilich - 194,000 3 Joe ender555Ebanks - 187,000 4 Rong Li - 180,000 5 Tommaso Briotti - 178,800 6 Jeremiah Fitzpatrick - 174,700 7 Martin Jacobson - 173,800 8 Nick Rampone - 160,000 9 Sebastian Seba29072 Saffari - 143,500 10 Steve SteveyBallGame Merrifield - 141,700 Two events kick off on Thursday at the WSOP: Event #3: $1,500 Omaha Hi-Lo Eight or Better Event #4: $3,000 No Limit Hold'em Shootout And the Colossusstarts on Friday. The tournament, whose field could approach 20,000 entries, has a $565 buy-in and a $5 million guaranteed prize pool. If you're going, here's everything you need to know.

  2. [caption width="640"] Fabrzio ‘SixthSenSe19’ Gonzalez has been #1 for nearly 11 straight weeks (SHRPO photo)[/caption] It has been 75 days since Fabrizio 'SixthSenSe19' Gonzalez became the #1-ranked online poker player in the world and he doesn’t appear ready to let go of that position any time soon despite a full host of world class players doing their best to take it from him. Gonzalez didn’t put in a lot of volume over the last week, cashing just six times with only one of them being good enough to add to his PLB points total. Gonzalez finished 15th in the $300 buy-in Winning Poker Network Sunday Special for $4,100 and 139.26 points. He now sits 1,033.63 points ahead of his nearest competitor, Bulgaria’s Alex ‘alexd2’ Dimitrov. Dimitrov cashed 25 times this last week but with only one of them counting towards his PLB total, he failed to make up any ground on Gonzalez. Dimitrov’s sole big score came in the PokerStars Super-Sized Sunday where he finished sixth for $8,189 and 157.89 points. He’s now been sitting in the #2 spot for seven straight weeks. The next two spots belong to a pair of Swedish players who have both spent time at #1 in 2016. ‘C Darwin2’ sits third with 8,071.3 points while ‘lena900’ is right behind him with 8,351.54 points. ‘C Darwin2’ moved up from #4 thanks to his win in the partypoker $100,000 Guaranteed Super High Roller on Sunday. ‘C Darwin’ beat out 45 other players to win $42,550 and 339.12 points. He also had an eight place finish in the PokerStars Super Tuesday for $8,256/180.03.Meanwhile, ’lena900’ had just seven ITM finishes this week and none were big enough to add to his PLB total to fall from #3 to #4. Joao Mathias 'joaomathias' Baumgarten rounded out the top five. The sole Brazilian to crack the top 10, Baumgarten had 31 cashes this week, highlighted by the only one big enough to boost his PLB total. Baumgarten took down the 888 poker $50,000 QuarterBack event on December 8, beating 204 other players to win $9,207/223.61. Two players moved up into the top 10 this past week. Johannes 'Greenstone25' Korsar went from #11 to #9 while Ludovic 'ludovi333' Geilich hit #10 - his highest ranking ever. Andreas ‘r4ndomr4gs’ Berggren and Joel ‘jbrown8777’ Brown fell to #11 and #12 respectively.

  3. [caption width="640"] Ludovic ‘Ludovi333’ Geilich-Jonsen broke into the top 10 of the PocketFives rankings earlier this month (PokerStars photo)[/caption] There are quite a few fun-loving characters on the European poker scene, but few are as universally liked as Scotland’s Ludovic ‘Ludovi333’ Geilich-Jonsen. His live poker resume boasts UK & Ireland Poker Tour and Wynn Classic wins, European Poker Tour and World Series of Poker final tables, not to mention more than $1.3 million in earnings. But it’s online where Geilich-Jonsen really cuts his teeth, and he’s had quite a year on the virtual felt, most notably taking down the 2016 PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker $25,000 Pot Limit Omaha for a cool $462,000. He’s now cracked the top 10 in the world rankings for the first time (sitting at #9 at the time of writing). Setting goals “I’ve been keeping an eye on the rankings, to be honest,” he says. “The WCOOP win gave me a lot of points and shot me up to 76th or something. So I started looking and I decided to make a goal for myself. “I said ‘I’m going to try and get in the top three of the UK, and the top 20 of the world’. Now I’m in the top 10 in the world and top two in the UK. I’m close enough to becoming #1 in the UK, but I’ve got to put the volume in, which I’ve not been doing.” (Editor's Note: Geilich-Jonsen moved up to #1 in the United Kingdom this week) So if it’s not consistent grinding, to what does Geilich-Jonsen credit his success? His answer was characteristically modest. “I’ve been pretty lucky because I’ve only been playing every Sunday, with maybe the odd Tuesday or Thursday. I’ve ran super good, collected all these points, and shot up the rankings quicker than I should have, if I’m honest. “I‘ve not been grinding every night for sure,” he tells me. “If I’m out with the boys or whatever, then I’m out with the boys. And if I’m travelling, I’ll play a Sunday but that’s about it. “I was in Punta Cana for two weeks recently where I only played the two Sundays, and had no success. Then I came back home and played the next Sunday and I ran super hot. I chopped the $1k Sunday Grand, I won the Bounty $215, and I came third in the Hot $55. That just stacked me up lots of points and put me in the top ten. “That’s probably the best I’ve ever ran on a normal Sunday (i.e. no WCOOP or SCOOP) in like three years.” Eyeing the #1 spot Geilich-Jonsen has been a member of PocketFives since 2012, and is pretty familiar with both the rankings and the big online names. He shared some of his thoughts on the current world #1, who coincidentally finished second to him in his WCOOP win. “The leader right now is Fabrizio 'SixthSenSe19' Gonzalez, and I don’t think anyone is catching him until he decides to take a break. There’s a massive gap between first and second, and he’s been putting in a load of volume. “A lot of regs probably think he’s a bad reg, but I don’t think he is. He does some things unorthodoxly and other regs might not like the lines he takes. But that’s what makes you money sometimes. Like fu_15, he used to do the same thing. People used to think he was punty and spewy, but I think you’ve got to show up with a punt to get paid sometimes. “Then, when you go back to playing the same way that everyone else is playing, I think you get a lot more respect. Where previously you’ve been splashing about and not getting any respect, against certain opponents it might tilt them and annoy them. So the reg is at home saying “Look at this donk, who plays like this!”, showing their friends that they’re grinding with. But it’s affected them. So doing it might be a losing play, but long term it could be a winning play.” Live poker Despite so much success in both live and online poker this year, Gelich-Jonsen was notably absent from some of the bigger buy-in events at EPT13 Prague. I wanted to know his thoughts on his future at the live felt. “The recent success has dictated what I want to play,” he says. “I don’t really want to focus on live poker right now. It’s too frustrating when it turns out bad. “I don’t want to play the $10ks all the time. Some of these guys play their A-game at all times.” He mentions Fedor Holz, Charlie Carrel, David Peters, and Adrian Mateos as just some of the tougher opponents, plus his good friend Niall Farrell. “Firaldo’s always there, and he’s out having a good time with the boys a lot of the time! Yet when he plays, he gets deep runs. “These guys are on another level with their A-game consistency. I can’t sustain that level. If something has affected me the night before, like I’m hungover or whatever and I’m having to focus on a three/four/five day tournament, I’m not going to play my A-game.” For Geilich-Jonsen, it seems poker is all about playing well (when he wants to play), but more importantly just enjoying the ride. “This is the fourth year in a row I’ve been to Prague, and I don’t think I’ve ever made money. In fact, the best places to go are the places where you don’t really make money, because you’re just out every night. This year was the only year in Vegas I’ve made money; there are just too many distractions!”
  4. [caption width="640"] Fabrzio ‘SixthSenSe19’ Gonzalez saw his lead atop the PocketFives Rankings shrink this week. (SHRPO photo)[/caption] Fabrizio 'SixthSenSe19' Gonzalez has now been the #1-ranked online poker player in the world but in the last week the two players right behind him, Alex ‘alexd2’ Dimitrov and 'C Darwin2', continue to move closer to the top spot. While Gonzalez and Dimitrov continue to hold down the top two spots, both did so without having recorded any scores over the past week that added to their PLB score. Gonzalez finished ITM just nine times while Dimitrov, known for putting in a higher volume than any other player in the top ten, cashed just 12 times with none of them earning more than 62 PLB points. Dimitrov closed the gap without scoring any additional PLB points as some of Gonzalez's older cashes fell off his score. Meanwhile, Sweden's 'C Darwin' however moved closer to Gonzalez thanks to two big scores. The first came on December 18 when he finished 11th in PokerStars Sunday Warm-Up for $3,263 and 148.19 PLB points. That same day he final-tabled the partypoker Six-Max Turbo High Roller for $6,240/117.96. Fellow Swede ‘lena900' maintained the #4 spot despite not recording a single cash all week. Brazilian Joao Mathias 'joaomathias' Baumgarten managed to record 37 cashes, but only one of them earned him enough points to add to his total. Baumgarten won the PokerStars Big $55 on December 14 for $9,734/243.52. Andras 'probirs' Nemeth and Anton 'AnteSvante' Wigg held on to the #6 and #7 spots respectively to leave the top seven spots unchanged from last week. Sweden's Andreas ‘r4ndomr4gs’ Berggren moved up from #11 to #8 based on two wins on December 15. He won the PokerStars.com Hot $33 for $4,294/160.34 and the Thursday Full KO on PokerStars.fr for $5,145/130.95. Johannes 'Greenstone25' Korsar was the only player to fall out of the top ten. Korsar went from #9 to #12.

  5. [caption width="640"] Despite spending all week at the PokerStars Championship Bahamas, Fabrizio ‘SixthSenSe19’ Gonzalez held on to the top spot.(PokerStars photo)[/caption] It’s been 14 weeks since somebody other than Fabrizio ‘SixthSenSe19’ Gonzalez has held down the #1 spot in the PocketFives Worldwide Rankings. Gonzalez held on to the top spot this week despite the fact he played a full schedule at the PokerStars Championship Bahamas. Despite just five cashes - and none big enough to add to his PLB score - Gonzalez still held off challenges from ‘C Darwin2’ and Alex ‘alexd2’ Dimitrov. ‘C Darwin2’, one of four Swedish players in the top 10, started the week off in the right way with a win in the PokerStars Hot $162 for $7,062 and 191.31 points. Despite 14 more cashes during the week however, he was unable to find another result good enough to add to his total. Dimitrov also had a slow week - one of his slowest in recent memory. The Bulgarian grinder, known for playing a higher volume than others in the top 10, cashed just seven times and not a single one helped him close the gap on ‘C Darwin2’ or Gonzalez. The next Swede in the rankings, ‘lena900’, had 34 in-the-money finishes but only one, where he took fourth place in the partypoker High Roller on January 4, was good enough to add to his points total. He walked away from that event with $8,147 in cash and 141.72 points. The top five is rounded out by the #1 player out of Brazil, Joao Mathias 'joaomathias' Baumgarten. The former #1-ranked Baumgarten had 35 cashes this past week and just like other above him in the standings, only one was good enough to count toward his total. Finishing sixth in the partypoker Heavyweight on January 8, Baumgarten won $6,875 and added 120.66 points. The only player to move into the top 10 this week was Conor '1_conor_b_1' Beresford. The UK-grinder moved up to #10 from #11, swapping places with Cristian ‘progre69’ Sampaoli, thanks to a win in the PokerStars $55 Six Max Progressive KO event on January 9. He added $2,066 to his bankroll but also an additional 107.59 PLB points to his total. He’s now 53.46 ahead of Sampaoli.

  6. [caption width="640"] Fabrizio 'SixthSenSe19' Gonzalez continues to lead the PocketFives Worldwide Rankings but has a group of Swedes behind him[/caption] For the fourth consecutive week Fabrizio ‘SixthSenSe19’ Gonzalez remained as the world’s #1-ranked online poker player, but there’s five different players from Sweden attempting to chase him down. Gonzalez has 154.38 PLB point lead over his next closest competitor despite not having posted a qualifying cash in over a month. Gonzalez managed just four cashes this past week, and none were big enough to add to his PLB total. The last time he had a result strong enough to count was February 7 when he won the partypoker High Roller. ‘Lena900’ wasn’t able to take full advantage of Gonzalez’s slow week though, grabbing just one score big enough to add to his total. The former #1-ranked player beat out 187 other players to win the PokerStars Big $162 on March 5 for $5,606 and 167.93 points. ‘C Darwin2’ maintained his hold on the #3 spot but also failed to make up any ground on Gonzalez. Despite cashing 16 times last week, none were good enough to add to his points total. He finished the week 303.08 points behind ‘lena900’ and 457.46 behind Gonzalez. While the top three remained unchanged this week, one player moved up three spots and into the top five for the first time since 2016. ‘Ariados’ continued his hot play as of late with a win in the partypoker $2,600 buy-in Super High Roller and a fourth place finish in the partypoker $530 buy-in High Roller on Sunday. Those two cashes added $65,376 to his bankroll and 598.01 PLB points to his total to move him from #7 to #4. Two more players re-entered the top ten this week. Russia’s Alexandr 'Blackk' Trofimov went from #11 to #8 on the heels of three qualifying cashes that earned him a total of 345.53 points. His biggest score came in a PokerStars $109 Six Max Hyper Turbo for $4,532 and 151.81 points. Another Russian player, ‘veeea’ went from #13 to #9 after finishing third in a partypoker High Roller for $7,191/124.04 and runner up win another partypoker Six Max High Roller for $11,366/178.26. Nicolas ‘PokerKaiser’ Fierro, who surpassed $10,000,000 in lifetime earnings this week, dropped from #8 to #12.

  7. [caption width="640"] Catalin Pop defeated a field of 531 to win the first 888Live Main Event of 2017. (PokerNews photo)[/caption] The first series of the opening 888Live Festival wrapped up Monday at King's Casino in Rozadov, Czech Republic as Catalin 'SrylGotOdds' Pop defeated a field of 531 entrants to claim top honors. The appropriately priced €888 Main Event had a €300,000 guarantee that was easily surpassed and the final table live-streamed on Twitch. Among the players who reached the final table were World Poker Tour winner Niall 'firaldo' Farrell and top online professional Ludovic 'ludovi333' Geilich, but in the end, it was Pop who came out on top and claimed the €80,000 first place prize. Pavel Berka was the first player eliminated from the eight-handed final table and. Following an open by Geilich to 80,000, Berka shoved from the big blind and Geilich called. Berka was in trouble with [poker card="6c"][poker card="6d"] against the [poker card="7h"][poker card="7s"] of Geilich and after a dry board was dealt, Berka hit the rail. Geilich started the final table as the chip leader and extended his lead further by eliminating Alexander Dmitrienko. Lukasz Tomecki opened to 105,000 from early position with [poker card="qc"][poker card="tc"] and found calls from Geilich in the hijack with [poker card="ah"][poker card="ts"] and Farrell in the cutoff with [poker card="9d"][poker card="9s"]. An extremely short stacked Dmitrienko moved all in from the small blind for 145,000 total and all three players called. Dmitrienko’s cards were not revealed. The flop came down [poker card="kc"][poker card="qs"][poker card="6d"] and Geilich bet 275,000, which found calls from the two players competing for the side pot. The turn was the [poker card="3d"] and Geilich moved all in and got both of his opponents to fold. The river was the [poker card="jc"] and Geilich rivered broadway to eliminate Dmitrienko. Geilich dipped slightly in chips after eliminating Dmitirienko but was back to his winning ways when he sent Juan Carlos Vecino out. With about 2,500,000 in front of him, Geilich moved all in from the hijack with [poker card="ks"][poker card="qs"] and Vecino called for his tournament life with [poker card="8s"][poker card="8h"]. A king on the flop effectively ended the drama and Geilich moved to 3,800,000. The first non-Geilich bust out of the final table was dealt out by Farrell, who took the liberty of taking out Tomecki. At big blind 100,000, Tomecki shoved for 2,220,000 from the small blind with [poker card="kh"][poker card="js"] and Farrell called out of the other blind with [poker card="as"][poker card="7c"]. Both players paired their high card on the flop but Tomecki did not improve further and was eliminated in fifth place. The up and down ride of Geilich was put to an end by Pop, who claimed the final table chip lead for the first time in the process. Pop limped with [poker card="qd"][poker card="qs"] from the button and Geilich raised the action to 385,000 out of the small blind with [poker card="ah"][poker card="5s"]. Pop turned up the heat to 825,000 and Geilich moved all in over the top and Pop called. The [poker card="tc"][poker card="7h"][poker card="5c"][poker card="jd"][poker card="8d"] board was not enough help for Geilich and he exited the final table. Pop’s run continued with his elimination of Farrell, who was denied his first title of 2017. From the small blind, Pop raised to 360,000 with [poker card="5c"][poker card="5h"] and Farrell three-bet to 925,000 with [poker card="jc"][poker card="js"]. Pop moved all in for effectively 4,000,000 and Farrell called to create a pot worth the majority of the chips in play. The [poker card="9d"][poker card="5d"][poker card="2d"] flop put Pop ahead with a set but the [poker card="qd"] turn opened the door for Farrell to chop the pot. The [poker card="7h"] hit the river and Pop entered heads up play with a huge lead over Bernd Schönwälder. The battle did not last long as Pop dispatched Schönwälder to claim victory. Schönwälder moved all in from the small blind with [poker card="th"][poker card="8h"] and Pop called with [poker card="ks"][poker card="jh"]. The [poker card="9s"][poker card="9c"][poker card="6c"] flop gave Schönwälder a straight draw but he failed to improve on the [poker card="4s"] turn or the [poker card="5c"] river, giving Pop the hand and the title. The victory for Pop marks his first career major title which now accompanies his over $500,000 in online earnings. For the win, Pop earns €80,000 and the claim to winning the opening 888Live event of 2017. Final Table Payouts Catalin Pop - €80,000 Bernd Schönwälder - €50,023 Niall Farrell - €36,113 Ludovic Geilich - €29,184 Lukasz Tomecki -€22,785 Juan Carlos Vecino - €17,730 Alexander Dmitrienko - €13,247 Pavel Berka - €9,619
