  1. A 15-year veteran of the online poker scene, 34-year-old Andrew 'Head218' Carnevale is one of many top-ranked online poker players in Pennsylvania looking forward to the impending launch of legalized and regulated online poker in his home state. Carnevale, who currently works full-time in providing investment products to investment professionals, has been playing long enough to remember the heyday of online poker and the pain of Black Friday. The return of online poker to Pennsylvania represents a big step for the evolution of US online poker as well as the next step in Carnevale's own poker
  2. Pennsylvania is preparing for a much-anticipated launch of regulated online poker. Once it does, it will make regulated online poker play available to the population a nearly 13 million people that live in the Keystone State. With its population, Pennsylvania will be the largest state to legally offer online poker in the United States, eclipsing that of New Jersey, Nevada, and Delaware, and adding a welcomed boost to the regulated US online poker market. Whether you're an experienced online poker player or someone that's new to the virtual felt, you likely have questions surrounding what to
  3. Just last week, PokerStars NJ announced their fourth annual NJ Championship of Online Poker schedule with $1 million guaranteed through 50 events over a 17-day period in October. By all accounts, PokerStars is the front-runner to become the first online poker site to launch in a Pennsylvania with many speculating Keystone State grinders could be clicking buttons beginning in October. A Pennsylvania Championship of Online Poker (PACOOP) - could very well be a key component of what is sure to be a much-hyped launch period. With a population of 12.8 million, Pennsylvania is a larger potenti

  5. The soft launch has come and gone, two sets of Sunday Majors have played out, the first major tournament series in the history of regulated online poker in Pennsylvania has been announced. And that's just the first two weeks in the life-cycle of the first regulated poker site in Pennsylvania history. PokerStars PA launched officially on November 6 after working through a two-day soft launch period required by the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board. While the soft launch was a necessary regulatory hurdle, for Matt Primeaux, President of FOX Bet/PokerStars USA, it offered an opportunity to get
  6. The second set of Sunday Majors since regulated online poker officially launched in Pennsylvania earlier this month drew slightly lower numbers than the week before in all but one of the five events on PokerStars PA, most notably the $100 Sunday Special which included a small overlay. [ptable zone="Global Poker Article Ad"][ptable zgone="888poker NJ"][ptable zone="GG Poker"] 'AllinWithAJoff' picked up $7,201.46 for topping the 432 entries in the Sunday Special.

  7. Online poker players in Pennsylvania had themselves a busy Sunday for the first time since the state first regulated online gaming just over two years ago. Following the launch of PokerStars PA earlier this week, a brand new set of Sunday Majors gave Keystone State grinders something to look forward. The five marquee events on the schedule came with buy-ins from $10 to $100 and a total of $67,500 guaranteed.

  8. Sundays are for grinding. With PokerStars PA now going around the clock, the best online poker players in Pennsylvania now have their own set of Sunday Majors to look forward to each week. While those who still long for the pre-Black Friday MTT schedule might be disappointed, the players in Pennsylvania who have been waiting to get back on PokerStars since that fateful day 8.5 years ago will be excited to head into battle. There's a full tournament schedule to play with buy-ins ranging from $2 to $250 but there are five tournaments worth highlighting. Things get underway at 4 pm with
  9. The PokerStars PA soft launch is over and the site’s first full day of play is here. Following what was an exciting, but limited, Monday and Tuesday this week, Pennsylvania poker players are now welcome to fully enjoy all that the site has to offer. There is a wide variety of game types and stakes available, so let’s take a look at what PokerStars PA has to offer. Checking out the PokerStars PA lobby, players can find games sectioned off across three tabs. Those tabs are 'Cash,' 'Sit & Go,' and 'Tourney,' with each offering different options for players. Plenty of Cash Games On Offer
  10. Online poker players in Pennsylvania have to wait no longer. Monday, November 4 is Day 1 of the two-day soft launch period for PokerStars PA. This story will be updated throughout the day. Update 10:00 PM: Day 1 of the soft launch is in the books. We'll be back tomorrow for more coverage of Day 2! Update 9:25 PM: Time may be winding down for the night but that's not stopping 'breakfastball' and 'pittfan80' from battling heads up in the $4/$8 Eight Game Mix. Update 9:11 PM: Longtime PocketFiver Gilbert 'YourPokerPastor' Thurston was one of the first players to log on today and
  11. The World Poker Tour Borgata Poker Open was recently at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City, New Jersey. It's always a very popular, well-attended series that draws in poker players from all over. Zach Gruneberg, one of the top players on the Pennsylvania poker all-time money list, was one of them. Not only did Gruneberg show up, he won, taking home two Borgata Poker Open titles from the series. With the victories coming at a time when Pennsylvania online poker is working to launch any day now, it felt as good a time as ever to check in with Gruneberg. [ptable zone="Global Poke
  12. It’s another month at the top of the PocketFives United States Online Poker Rankings for New Jersey online poker grinder Yong ‘ykwon17’ Kwon. After taking the first couple of weeks in August off, Kwon soon himself back on the online grind picking up PLB-qualifying scores in bunches. Throughout the second half of the month, Kwon racked up four qualifying scores and nine cashes worth four-figures or more.

  13. As the launch of Pennsylvania online poker approaches, PocketFives takes a look at how players from that state did at the 2019 World Series of Poker. Pennsylvania poker players accounted for 2,439 total entries at the 2019 WSOP, ranking the state 15th out of all states to have players participate in the series. Per official numbers sourced from the WSOP, US-player participation made up for 129,154 entries from live tournaments at the 2019 WSOP. With 2,439 of those entries coming from PA poker players, Pennsylvania accounted for nearly 2% of the US participation at the 2019 WSOP. Pennsylv
  14. If you tuned into the World Series of Poker Main Event broadcast on Sunday, you were mostly viewing a feature table that had Nick Schulman and Loni Harwood as the prominent players. If you stuck around to watch, you likely noticed the player in Seat 2, well-built with a neatly trimmed beard and strong table presence. That's Ryan Pochedly. Living in Pennsylvania, Pochedly got his start in poker "like everybody else." He started playing in college, deposited some money with an online poker site, and never looked back. Today, poker is Pochedly’s profession and he's looking forward to regulated
  15. [caption width="640"] Pennsylvania and Michigan could still find a way to regulate online gaming in 2016[/caption] The future of online gambling in the United States could very well be decided between now and the end of the year. The country isn't at a make-or-break point, but with no state legalizing online gaming in over three years, any chance at widespread online gambling legalization by 2020 is slowly slipping away. On the other hand, if one or both of the states where online gambling legalization is still very much in play can get a bill passed this year, we could see several ot
  16. As Pennsylvania continues to discuss the specifics of an online gaming framework in the state, a new bill and continued debate over proposed tax rates have taken center stage. On April 4, the Pennsylvania House of Representatives passedH 271, which legalizes tablet gaming in airports. Although this bill only authorizes tablet gaming, legislators see this as their path to becoming the fourth state to legalize online gaming since 2013. Pennsylvania Rep. George Dunbar recently told PocketFives that the ball was in the Senate’s court when it comes to finalizing the deal for online gaming
  17. Members of the Pennsylvania Senate Community, Economic, and Recreational Development Committee (CERD) heard testimony from several of the state's regulators on Wednesday to assess the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board's (PGCB) ability to police the online gambling industry. That would, of course, only happen if iGaming were legalized in the Commonwealth. Some information for this article was taken from a hearing summary on USPoker. PGCB Executive Director Kevin O'Toole was the first to offer testimony in the hearing. He expressed confidence that internet gambling could be safely regulated,
  18. Despite seemingly persistent rumors that Pennsylvania is on the verge of finally getting an online poker room, another month has passed without a hand of real money regulated online poker being dealt. It’s been two years since Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf signed the bill into law that would allow for legalized online gaming to take place. And it’s been over three months since July 15, the official launch date of online gaming in the state. While citizens of the Keystone State have been able to bet on sports and play in various online casinos, poker is still nowhere to be seen in the marke
  19. For the past two weeks, online poker players in Pennsylvania have been able to fire up their computer or mobile device and play on the first regulated site in the state, PokerStars PA. Now, one of the most popular poker vloggers has gotten in on the act and taken viewers at home along for the ride. Trevor Savage, a regular on the NJ online poker sites, made the trip into Philadelphia to get set up on the new site and take a few turns on some of the No Limit Hold'em cash game available. He goes over some of the sign-up process and then reviews a few key hands from his first session in Pennsy
  20. After a successful first day, PokerStars PA is back for Day 2 of its soft launch. Follow along here as Pennsylvania enjoys the second day of regulated online poker play. This story will be updated throughout the day. Update 12:00 AM: That's a wrap on the second and final day of the PokerStars PA soft launch. PocketFives will be back for one more live blog on the first full day of play on PokerStars PA and many believe that day will be Wednesday! Update 11:30 PM: With just 30 minutes to go on Day 2 of the PokerStars PA soft launch, the crowds are beginning to dwindle a little bit. After p
  21. Over the next few months, as online poker in Pennsylvania goes from a pipe dream to reality, at least a few of the newest operators in the state will be looking for players to bring on board as Team Pros or Ambassadors. The criteria they'll apply in their search includes looking for players who have had some success in the live or online poker arenas, have the respect of their peers, have a social media following or create content of their own, and most importantly, they have to want to be an ambassador. Two of the most likely choices are off the board. Jennifer Shahade is already a memb
  22. Pennsylvania online poker players hoping to be able to start check-raising and three-betting from the comfort of their own home on July 15, when regulated online gaming launches in their state, are going to have to show a little bit of patience. Unfortunately, no online poker rooms will launch on July 15. Officials from the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board confirmed this week that none of the approved online poker operators will be in action on the first day of regulated play. The focus for most companies appears to be on casino products, most notably slot machines. There was no ti
  23. Legal online poker in Pennsylvania finally goes live on July 15. Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board Executive Director Kevin O’Toole made the announcement at a PGCB meeting Wednesday, and players in the Keystone State can look forward to enjoying regulated online gambling and poker this summer. Seven Pennsylvania casinos have been approved to offer online poker, which became the fourth U.S. state to legalize online gambling in October 2017. Online poker giants like PokerStars, partypoker, and 888Poker have partnered with some of these casinos and will finally debut their PA-based poker cl
  24. In late 2013, Ryan Smart’s passion for poker was flickering like a lightbulb in its final moments of usefulness. Smart had been grinding since 2007 and was starting to feel the impact of the travel necessitated by the fallout of Black Friday and he’d also discovered that the games weren’t the berry patches they once were. “The games had gotten a little tougher at that point and I probably was a bit lazy, but I think I was actually still studying pretty hard. It’s just, the results weren't coming and in the live cash I was still doing okay at but at that point, I hadn't been playing live nea
  25. A lot of people go to Atlantic City for their 21st birthday. The casinos give the birthday boy or girl the first opportunity to drink and gamble legally in one fun combination of some adult-only vices. Just a few days after hitting that milestone birthday, Pennsylvania online poker player Mike McNick made his way to the Borgata Hotel, but it wasn't necessarily about hitting the clubs or trying out the Wheel of Fortune slots. McNick went to play some poker. Even though he's played poker since he was in high school, McNick hasn't been able to play a live tournament in his home state of Pennsy
