  1. As the 2018 World Championship of Online Poker heads into its final weekend of action, the action continued on Thursday with Linus 'LLinusLLove' Loeliger taking down one of the biggest buy-in tournaments for nearly $588,000. Other highlights of the day included Joao 'Naza114' Vieira, Mike 'SirWatts' Watson and Arseniy 'josef_shvejk' Karmatskiy each picking up titles.

  2. Over the past 50 years, for many, the World Series of Poker has grown into more than just a poker series. It’s become a pilgrimage of sorts. Players from all over the world head to Las Vegas to take their shot at battling against the best, bringing home a bracelet and possibly be crowned a World Champion. With the WSOP regularly taking place in the U.S., it’s no surprise that American players, far and away, have amassed the most bracelets in WSOP history. It’s nearly 20 times that of the next nearest country. But this year is different and the tables have turned. After the month of July, th
  3. On Monday, the first-ever Poker Masters Online continued with more high-stakes action on partypoker. After Sunday's opening day brought us the first three events of the series, Monday followed it up with two more. Winning the events were Mike Watson and Andras Nemeth, with both taking home right around a quarter of a million dollars. For Nemeth, the victory came one day after he finished second to Pablo Brito Silva in the Irish Poker Open Main Event. In that one, Nemeth scored €325,423.

  4.

  5. Mike Watson entered Saturday holding the chip lead in two PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker events.

  6. At the 2019 World Series of Poker, Finland's Juha Helppi beat out 117 other players to win the $10,000 Limit Hold'em Championship to erase his name from the Best Players Without a Bracelet list. On Tuesday, the Finnish pro added a second bracelet after beating a star-studded field in the $5,000 Pot Limit Omaha Championship on GGPoker. The event drew 328 total entries for a $1,558,000 prize pool. The event played as a Six Max until the final table which was played nine-handed. Just a few minutes after the final table began, Jens Kyllonen raised to 120,000 from the small blind and Alex Dif
  7. Ajay Chabra entered the World Series of Poker Online $1,500 Limit Hold’em Championship on Tuesday with 11 cashes already in the Series with four of those coming via top-ten finishes.

Event #72 drew 337 players for a total prize pool of $480,225. Chabra, who entered the final table sixth in chips, spun his stack up to take down the tournament’s top prize of $77,475. After 15 minutes of nine-handed play at the final table, the action fold
  8. The final table of the World Poker Tour Montreal event was as star-studded as they come. A former World Series of Poker Main Event champion was joined by the reigning GPI Female Player of the Year, a former November Niner, and a former PokerStars Caribbean Adventure Main Event champion and yet somehow Geoffrey Hum found a way to outshine them all. Hum, whose career earnings prior to Sunday was $51,588, eliminated the final four standing in his way to pick up a World Poker Tour title, an entry into the WPT Tournament of Champions, and $500,000 CDN ($381,000 US).

  9. Winning a World Series of Poker gold bracelet is widely considered by many to be poker’s ultimate achievement. For some players, it defines his or her career. For others, it’s the one prize eluding some of the game’s best. For years, Stephen Chidwick was considered the best poker player without a WSOP gold bracelet. At the 2019 WSOP, Chidwick bucked that monkey off his back like the most turbulent bull does to a rider at a rodeo when he won the $25,000 Pot Limit Omaha High Roller for $1.618 million. Shawn Buchanan was another player in the "best without a bracelet conversation," but, like C
  10. [caption width="640"] Mike 'SirWatts' Watson added another WCOOP title to his list of accomplishments. (PokerStars photo)[/caption] We’re at the stage of the 2016 World Championship of Online Poker where the time remaining can reasonably be measured in hours, not day. With the end of the online series nearing, Mike Watson went to work on Sunday in adding another WCOOP title to his credit. Watson, who won the 2016 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure Main Event beat out 119 other players to win the $10,300 buy-in Eight Game Championship. Watson beat out Ben ‘Sauce123’ Sulsky to win $280,238.52

  12. Just 48 hours after nearly capturing two Super High Roller Bowl Online Series prelim titles on the same day, online poker superstar Viktor Blom was back in the winner’s circle with another Super High Roller victory on Thursday. Blom topped the 40-entry field in Event #14 ($25,500 Super High Roller, 8-Max) to capture his second win in three days and a $407,500 payday.

  13. [caption width="640"] Mike 'SirWatts' Watson Wins 2016 PCA Main Event[/caption] The PokerStars Caribbean Adventure has often been the place where poker legends have their coming out party. The final table of the 2016 PCA Main Event, however, took on a different narrative.

  14. Brian Stinger885Hastings (pictured) came into the 2015 World Series of Poker making bet after bet on Twitter. A week ago, he won his second career gold bracelet in the $10,000 Seven Card Stud Championship and collected more in bracelet bets than he won for first. On Saturday, he one-upped himself, winning another one and becoming the first repeat winner of the 2015 WSOP. --- Tournament Poker Edgeis the only poker training site dedicated exclusively to MTTs and features over 1,000 training videos, blogs, articles, podcasts and a dedic
  15. The World Poker Tour Online Series on partypoker had a pair of 6-Max titles up for grabs on Thursday night and two players seized the opportunity to claim their second victory of the series. Russian online pro Alexandr Trofimov topped the 210-entry field in Event #53 ($1,050 NLHE 6-Max) to claim the $42,819 first-place prize and his second WPT Online title. Last week, Trofimov secured his first series win in Event #33 ($215 6-Max Weekender) where he earned $74,938.20 for first place.

PocketFivers can be found in five of the top 14 spots. --- 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 me
  18. The month of May is shaping up to be a solid one for Canadian grinder Mike SirWattsWatson (pictured).

  20. For the third time this year Mike 'SirWatts' Watson finished a PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker event as the last player standing. And this time he beat a "god" to do it. Watson beat out 147 other players including his final opponent Borys 'GODofHU' Turitsa to win Event #113 High ($1,050 6+ Hold'em) for $29,997.02.

[caption width="320" align="alignleft"] Nick Petrangelo grabbed his first win of 2017 in the Aussie Millions 0,000 Challenge.[/caption] You could say that 2017 is treating Nick Petrangelo really well. You could say that "retirement" is treating German phenom Fedor Holz really well too. The pair were front and center at the 2017 Aussie Millions On Saturday at the final table of the ANTON Jewellery $100,000 Challenge. Petrangelo, who finished runner-up to Lucas Greenwood in the PokerStars Championship Bahamas $25,000 High Roller, beat out a final table that included Holz, Sam Trick
  22. Any conversation about who the best high roller poker player in the world that doesn't include Stephen Chidwick is wasted energy. Chidwick proved it again this week by winning the inaugural Australian Poker Open Championship against some of the toughest fields in recent memory. On his way to the title, Chidwick cashed in three of the seven APO events, including a win, a runner-up finish and very important Main Event min-cash. All told, Chidwick earned won $949,000 (AUD).

With that in mind, prior to the start of the series, PocketFives staff attempted to make some predictions of players that we thought would make a serious impact on the 2020 WSOP. We dove into the player pools from the online poker powerhouse cou
