  1. Jason 'JayRiv' Rivkin is doing his best to use the New Jersey Championship of Online Poker to work his way up the New Jersey online poker rankings. For the second time in 10 days, Rivkin emerged victorious from an NJCOOP event, this time winning Event #44 ($100 No Limit Hold'em [Win The Button]) for $3,407.91. Rivkin's win came at the expense of 'loosebad', who again had to settle for a runner-up finish. He does have a win to his credit but now has three second-place finishes. He earned $2,589.65 while 'Tomasz199873' pocketed $1,967.92 for finishing in third. There were three other events that wrapped up on Sunday. 'Boney526' beat 178 other players to win Event #41 ($100 No Limit Hold'em [w/Big Antes]) and $3,533.00. The biggest field of the day belonged to Event #43 ($50 No Limit Hold'em [Main Event structure]) which drew 587 runners. The final four players agreed to a deal with eventual winner 'green str719' taking home $4,364.03. Runner-up 'M66515906506942' earned $2,853.14 which narrowly eclipsed the $2,838.50 and $2,518.39 earned by respective third and fourth place finishers 'Gaylord116' and 'OrganicHG'. 'JTourney' took down Event #45 ($75 No Limit Hold'em [Sunday SuperSonic SE]) to earn $2,257. The NJCOOP Main Event also started on Sunday with 305 players each putting up the $500 buy-in. Play was stopped Sunday night with 40 players remaining and 'gruemoon' holding the overnight chip lead. Action resumes Monday at 7 pm Monday.

  3. Filipe Oliveira has a quiet, unassuming presence at the poker table. No temper tantrums, no trash talk, no outward emotion after a bad beat. You might think it has something to do with playing poker in a tropical location such as the Bahamas. Apparently, it's the exact opposite. "The Bahamas likes me," Oliveira joked on Day 3 of the 2019 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure Main Event. No kidding. In November, Oliveira topped the 1,815 player field to win the partypoker Caribbean Poker Party Main Event at the Baha Mar resort in Nassau for $1.5 million. He showed up to the Atlantis Resort last week and made a deep run in the PokerStars Players NL Championship event, finishing 29th for $105,000. To date, 91.8% of his lifetime live earnings have been won on the island. That number will actually increase. He's one of 60 players still left in the hunt for the PCA Main Event title and the $1,567,100 first place prize. All kidding aside, Oliveira has a theory as to why he's had success in the Bahamas. "I think the time zone helps," Oliveira said. "I wake up at 9 am, I go do some sports, I go to the pool, I watch some hands and I'm ready to play poker before I start." Getting a chance to start his day a full five hours earlier than he does at home, Oliveira is now giving thought to coming back to the Bahamas - or another country in the same time zone, to play online. "I didn't notice (the time zone) was really good for me, but I really enjoyed the time zone," Oliveira said. "I think I might come here to play some series in this time zone, because I normally play in Europe. It's completely different." Navigating his way through 3,630 players (and counting) over those three events, Oliveira believes the PCA Main Event, which had 865 entries, is actually softer than the partypoker CPP Main Event, which included 1,815 entries, including those who fired multiple bullets. "(The CPP) was tougher because of the re-entries, it was more Day 1s and two re-entries so you were able to enter like 8 times or 10. So it's way tougher," said Oliveira. "The (PSPC) was really good. This $10K is worse than I expected in terms of field. It's not really soft for a main event, but it's still softer than a $10K high roller in Barcelona." He's no stranger to online success either. In 2016, he won PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker Event #15- Medium ($82 NL Hold'em Ante Up) for $22,818.65. Last September he finished fourth in the PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker Event #28- High ($5,200 Turbo High Roller) for $65,244.
  4. Joao Simao had an incredible 2018 on both the live and online MTT scene. He finished the year as both the #1-ranked online and live player in his native Brazil. On Friday he started 2019 off by outlasting a stacked final table to win the $10,000 Pot Limit Omaha event at the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure for a $184,420 score. Simao, who was once the #1-ranked online player in the world, outlasted a pair of PocketFives legends and former #1-ranked players in Cliff Josephy and Shaun Deeb to take down the event. Simao was thrilled to start his year by posing for a winner's photo. "It was incredible. I love to play PLO tournaments but I don't usually play too many live PLO tournaments because there's not too many with big buy-ins. I was really happy when I saw they were running a $10K PLO," Simao said. "I was expecting a lot of good players, but to be honest the first tables I got I had really good seats and then the final table was really tough and I ran really well." Deeb, the reigning World Series of Poker Player of the Year, finished third while Josephy ended up as the runner up. Closing out a tough tournament this early in the year is a drastic change from how things went for Simao in 2018. He earned $1,329,087 off of 15 cashes but only managed to find the winner's circle once. His lone victory came in a Brazil Series of Poker event in November for $37,530. Even though he only picked up the one win, Simao has enough to perspective to understand he shouldn't be beating himself up at all. "I can't complain at all. I had great results live (in 2018). I didn't win until December. I made 12 final tables if I'm not wrong, some big ones like the $25K and Main Event of MILLIONS Rozvadov," said Simao, held the #1 spot in the world on three separate occasions in 2016. "When you play 50,000 tournaments online like I did in the last 10 years, you know how it works. So I think that the background that I have from the online tournaments makes me feel comfortable to not finish in first place. I've arrived at final tables in first place and finished ninth, and I've arrived in every single starting situation for any final table; soft final tables, tough final tables." With a win already locked up for this trip, Simao is hoping to continue his winning ways in the 816-person PCA Main Event with more than $1.5 million going to the eventual champion. Simao thinks that momentum can be a real positive force in poker as long as you're not expecting it comes from doing the same thing over and over again. "I think it exists for sure. Even more when you don't play the same things. If you just play the $109 online, then I don't believe too much in momentum," Simao said. "But if you play online, then live, then main events, then high rollers, big difference in buy-ins, then I think the momentum is really important. It's not too often you can play for more than $1 million. It was good to win the $10K PLO before this tournament. I feel like I have real momentum now." As Day 2 of the Main Event continues towards the money bubble, Simao just might be proving his theory on momentum. He's one of the top five stacks in the tournament and feeling like he could pull off something special to cap his week. He's not as focused now on the Rankings as he used to be. While it was certainly a great accomplishment to do what he did in 2018, climbing back to the #1 spot in the world - a place he hasn't been since mid-2016, isn't something he's interested in pursuing anymore. "I used to #1 in the world in 2016, then I had a really big problem in my family, then I stopped playing a little bit and I went down. From that, I never grinded to be #1. I was #1 for live and online (in Brazil) so at the end of the year I was looking for the rankings because it would be nice to finish #1 in both, live and online rankings," Simao said. "I think it's really good to have rankings like PocketFives to motivate and make people grind and study more and more. I used to look for it, but now I'd rather get the compensation to be the #1. I'd rather get the great feeling to be the #1. Now I just want to play to make money."
