  1. Chris Moorman is easily one of the most - if not the most - decorated players in PocketFives history. He's been the #1-ranked player 13 different times and has held that spot for a combined 23 weeks. He was the first player to break $10 million and $15 million in lifetime earnings. Those accolades, along with his Global Poker Awards PocketFives Legacy Award, afforded the Englishman a first-round bye in the #1 Number One bracket, but the rest of the Hearts bracket presents a formidable challenge if Moorman has any designs on advancing and adding the #1 Number One Championship Belt to his collection. The rest of the bracket includes the likes of 'C Darwin2', Patrick 'pleno1' Leonard, Bert 'girafganger7' Stephens, and the late Chad 'M8kingmoves' Batista. Enter the #1 Number One Contest Now! C Darwin2 (#2) vs Jovial Gent (#15) Between February 2016 and May 2019, Sweden's 'C Darwin2' enjoyed eight different reigns at the #1 spot for a total of 66 weeks (third all-time). That, coupled with $16,779,066 in lifetime earnings, propelled 'C Darwin2' to the #2 seed in the Hearts bracket and made for a formidable first round opponent for Yevgeniy 'Jovial Gent' Timoshenko, who comes in at #15. Timoshenko held the #1 spot for a single week in May 2007 and has $4,826,132 in lifetime online earnings. Gettin Daize (#3) vs vinkyy (#14) Chris 'Getting Daize' Oliver took the #1 spot for the first time in August 2010 and then again in December of the same year. In both instances Oliver's grasp on the top spot lasted just one week. Still, the American, who now calls Costa Rica home, has $15,200,033 in lifetime online earnings, which is good enough for fifth best. Oliver's first round opponent, 'vinkyy' was #1 in the world for a single week back in October 2013 and has four PocketFives Triple Crowns to his credit. eisenhower1 (#4) vs brsavage (#13) Chris 'brsavage' Savage was the very first player to hold down the #1 spot on PocketFives. From January 17, 2005 thru April 18, 2005, Savage was considered the top online MTT player in the world. His status as 'PocketFives OG' could lead him to an upset over one of the best players Sweden has ever produced. Christian 'eisenhower1' Jeppsson took his turn at #1 for one week from September 30, 2015 thru October 7, 2015. He's also captured six Triple Crowns. Legenden (#5) vs norfair18 (#12) From March thru May 2013, 'Legenden' was in the online poker streets battling with some of the best in the world and put up results that allowed him to rise to the #1 ranking three different times. The competition was so fierce that two of his reigns lasted just one week and the third was two weeks. His first round opponent, 'norfair18' had a single week as the top-ranked online poker player in the world, taking the spot from Nicolas 'PokerKaiser' Fierro in April 2015. pleno1 (#6) vs lukethafluke (#11) Patrick 'pleno1' Leonard has been #1 on PocketFives on four separate occasions, most recently in November 2019. That reign, which lasted one week, came more than five years after he first topped the rankings. Leonard has $12.5 million in earnings and has won one Triple Crown and two monthly leaderboards. His first round opponent, Lukas 'lukethafluke' Berglund earned the #11 seed thanks to four turns at #1 between January and June in 2014 which helped push his lifetime earnings past $5 million. girafganger7 (#7) vs taypaur (#10) With more than $14 million in lifetime earnings and three reigns at #1, Bert 'girafganger7' Stephens still finds himself as an underdog to advance beyond the first round. Even then, he still has to make it past Taylor 'taypaur' Paur. On two separate occasions, Paur was #1 in the world with reigns lasting two weeks and seven weeks respectively. He also has more than $5 million in lifetime earnings. M8kingmoves (#8) vs ch0ppy (#9) Chad 'M8kingmoves' Batista had just one reign at #1, but he made the absolute most of it. Batista took over the #1 spot on August 22, 2007 and didn't let go of it for an astonishing 45 weeks, the second-longest reign of all-time trailing only Cliff 'JohnnyBax' Josephy's 74-week reign. Batista still has to get through Matt 'ch0ppy' Kay who had two week-long turns atop the Rankings in in July 2012 and February 2013. The Canadian also has five Triple Crown awards and $7.2 million in lifetime online earnings. Make your picks in the PocketFives #1 Number One Contest - entries due by Midnight ET on April 2.

  2. The reign of Griffin Flush_EntityBenger at the top of the PocketFives Rankingslasted one week, as Lukas lukethaflukeBerglund (pictured) made it to #1 on Wednesday. It's Berglund's third time being the top dog on PocketFives and his first since March. The Swedish player was helped by a win in the Full Tilt Poker Sunday Brawl over the weekend for almost $50,000 and nearly 500 PLB Points. One day prior to winning the Sunday Brawl, Berglund emerged victorious from the pack in a PokerStars $215 Weekly Six-Max tournament for $20,000 and 326 PLB Points. So far in May, a month that's only three weeks old, Berglund has amassed $223,000 from 85 tracked online MTT scores, an average of $2,600 each. Benger, meanwhile, didn't fall very far, landing in third place. Joining Berglund and Benger in the top 10 are three new entrants this week, as tournaments during SCOOP have stirred the pot quite a bit. Patrick pleno1 Leonard (pictured) was among the newcomers, hopping from #23 to #6 after logging a half-dozen five-figure scores this month, three of which came from SCOOP events. Leonard is #1 in the UK. One of the largest jumps inside the top 100 went to Toby 810ofclubs Lewis, who moved from #42 to #7, or 35 spots, after he finished second in a SCOOP $1,050 No Limit Hold'em Wrap-Up event on Sunday for $214,000 officially and nearly 900 PLB Points. It was Lewis' second largest tracked score to date, trailing a quarter-of-a-million dollar haul in an FTOPS jersey bid in 2013. Vinkyy, who was #1 on our site last year, reappeared in the top 10 this week after being ranked #28 last week. Vinkyy earned nearly 1,000 PLB Points after a second place finish in a SCOOP $2,100 No Limit Hold'em Eight-Max event over the weekend, a cash that has inched him within $150,000 of $6 million in career online scores. Malta's lasagnaaammm entered the top 100 this week at #31 worldwide after a SCOOP victory last week in a $2,100 No Limit Hold'em Turbo Re-Entry tournament for almost $400,000 officially and 1,447 PLB Points. It was his third tracked score of over $200,000 and he'll look to improve on his all-time high ranking of #9, set earlier this year. Finally, we wanted to talk about Brazil's Marco Amtozza Tozzatto (pictured), who moved up 36 spots to #42 worldwide. He finished second in the SCOOP Super Tuesday eight days ago for $191,000 and 826 PLB Points and is the top-ranked player in the South American nation. Swedes hold three of the top four spots in the Rankings this week and six of the top 14. Here are the top 10 PocketFivers along with the PLB score for each: 1. lukethafluke- 8,378 points 2. r4ndomr4gs - 8,305 points 3. Flush_Entity - 7,732 points 4. VnilaVader - 7,652 points 5. blanconegro - 7,649 points 6. pleno1- 7,523 points 7. 810ofclubs- 7,388 points 8. huiiiiiiiiii - 7,342 points 9. Vinkyy- 7,339 points 10.

  3. Last month, Sweden's Lukas lukethaflukeBerglund (pictured) took down the Full Tilt Poker Sunday Brawloutright for $49,000. He defeated over 1,200 entrants in the weekly tournament, which at the time was competing against the Spring Championship of Online Poker on Full Tilt's sister site, PokerStars. "It's nice to win a Sunday Major," Berglund told PocketFives, "but because of all of the SCOOP tournaments, I wanted to do well on Stars too. I would rather have won the $10K SCOOP Main Event than the Brawl." He said the latter comment with a smile. Berglund's SCOOP included a runner-up finish in a Heads-Up event for $58,000. The final table of the Brawl that week had four PocketFivers, including David Davidp18Peters and Vancouver's dirtybrasil, who finished eighth and fourth, respectively. "I have played with those two a lot and they played well," Berglund said of his fellow PocketFivers. "I think it was a pretty tough final table for a Sunday Major and I guess I was the one with the most luck." Berglund is ranked #2 on PocketFives right now, but he had popped up to #1 just after his Sunday Brawl victory. On being at the peak of the PocketFives Online Poker Rankings, he said, "It's always nice to be #1, especially after SCOOP, but the other guys I am competing with for #1 play a lot and win a lot, so it's not easy. I love winning and it's nice to be #1 at something." Berglund's largest online MTT score came in May 2013 in a SCOOP Super Knockout for $68,000. He has four scores of at least $50,000 and is closing in on $4 million in cashes in online MTTs. He plays as superkid-bam on PokerStars, where has $2.2 million in winnings. Swedes are #1, #2, and #4 worldwide in the Rankings. The Sweden pokercommunity has been a force to be reckoned with, so much so the Scandinavian nation (pictured) is currently tops in PocketFives' Country Poker Rankings. "We are pretty good at grinding a lot and playing MTTs," Berglund said. "We have to pay taxes outside of the EU when we play live, so because of that, I guess we focus more on online." The group also talks regularly, as Berglund explained, "I live in Stockholmand there a bunch of MTT regs living here, so we talk about poker. There is a big gang living in Gothenburgthat plays a lot too. We all take poker very seriously, which makes a big difference." Sweden is neck-and-neck with Canada for the top spot in the Country Poker Rankings. Berglund started playing poker when he was 18 and in school. After getting his education, he played poker full-time. He noted, "The Swedish system is a bit different than, let's say, the US system. Most people are not going to college directly after high school. You finish high school when you are 19 and most people travel or work for a while before going to college, so I didn't really do anything too differently." Berglund is not headed to Las Vegas for the ongoing World Series of Poker, whose Main Event begins on July 5 with the first of three starting days. Instead, he is off to EPT Barcelona, which starts in mid-August. Speaking of the live scene, the Swede has nearly a half-million dollars in cashes, according to the Hendon Mob, and is ranked #1,042 in the Global Poker Index. His largest live cash by far was worth $327,000 and came by virtue of a win in the WPT Spanish Championship in 2011.
