  1. Patrick pleno1Leonard (pictured), who is originally from Newcastle Upon Tyne, England, has had one heck of a run over the last three weeks. On February 23, he chopped the PokerStars Sunday Warm-Upfor $94,000, the largest amount given away, and final tabled the Eighth Anniversary Sunday Million one week later for another $110,000. On March 15, he won the site's $100 Rebuy for $13,000. Those three scores, which combined for $217,000, could push him even closer to the top 100 here on PocketFives. PocketFives: You finished ninth in the Eighth Anniversary Sunday Million for $110,000. Tell us how you're feeling about the six-figure score. Patrick Leonard: It's a little bit bittersweet. $110,000 is a lot of money to anybody who entered the tournament, so of course I'm really grateful for running well enough to be in a position to be playing for that kind of money, but of course I keep asking myself, "What if," especially since my exit hand was A-Q
  2. On July 2, Canada's p0cket00(pictured) ascended to the top of the PocketFives Poker Rankingsand stayed there for six straight weeks. It was the longest run by any player since pessagno's eight weeks at #1 that started in August of last year. Then, p0cket00 was bucked by pleno1 on August 13 for one week, but quickly returned to the top spot on August 20. Now, we could see another streak forming, as p0cket00 is ranked #1 for the third straight week. --- PocketFives' news coverage is brought to you by Betsson Poker, a leading global online gaming provider.

He is up to almost $25,000 in online tournament scores already this month despite the fact that September is just two days old and seems poised for another lengthy run at the top of the Rankings. Russia's MAMOHT_T moved up from #22 to #13 this week on the strength of a win in the 888 Poker Mega Deep over the weekend for $32,000 and 358 PLB Points. He just passed $4.5 million in career winnings and is the second-ranked player in his home country. Australia online poker player djn873was up 28 spots to settle at #53 this week, one of the biggest jumps in the top 100. This is his highest position ever in the Rankings and came by virtue of winning the 888 Poker Whale on August 24 for $54,000 and 447 PLB Points. The same day, he final tabled 888's Sunday Challenge for another $8,500. Austria's mindgamer(pictured) moved up from #50 to #37 after a rock solid Sunday that saw him finish fifth in the Full TiltSuper Sized Sunday, sixth in the PokerStars Sunday 500, and first in the Stars $162 Sunday Six-Max for nearly $50,000 combined. He stands at $3.6 million in online MTT winnings and was formerly ranked #1 here on PocketFives.

  3. It took all of one week for Sweden's Lukas lukethaflukeBerglund (pictured) to reclaim his spot atop the PocketFives Online Poker Rankings. Berglund was ranked #1 for one week from May 21 to 28 until fellow Swede r4ndomr4gs took over. Now, Berglund is back on top for the fourth time. Speaking of r4ndomr4gs, he didn't fall that far, dropping to #2 worldwide and trailing Berglund by fewer than 200 PLB Points. Swedes continue to be a force atop the Rankings, as a player from Sweden has been ranked #1 for all but five weeks since Christmas. Former #1 ranked p0cket00moved up from #19 worldwide to #5 this week on the strength of a win in the PokerStarsSuper Tuesday eight days ago for $106,000 and 747 PLB Points. That score was his second largest online tournament score ever, trailing only a bwin Grand XXXII victory two World Cups ago. Another Swede, lena900, moved up from #12 to #10, his highest position ever. He final tabled an FTOPS event in 2011 for $86,000, the largest cash we've tallied for him. He has 55 tracked victories, $2.4 million in winnings online, and plays on Full Tilt Pokerunder the user name whoozz. Sweden's Ariadosrose almost 30 spots at settle at #39 on the strength of a PokerStars $215 Rebuy win on June 1 for $16,000. Last month, he won the 888 Poker Mega Deep for $30,000 one week after finishing 12th in the SCOOP Main Event for $75,000. He is at $3.7 million in tracked scores. The rest of the top 100 was pretty stagnant this week, but we saw a huge jump from GM_VALTER (pictured), who reentered the top 100 at #63. The Brazilian was ranked as high as #21 on PocketFives in 2011 and final tabled the Sunday Second Chance over the weekend for $30,000 to help his cause. The same day, he took second in the Sunday Warm-Up for another $69,000, which meant a $100,000+ Sunday on PokerStars. Also jumping into the top 100 this week was Finland's gifuhorna, who is just a few thousand dollars away from hitting $2 million lifetime. Our #77 ranked player has spread his action pretty evenly across about a half-dozen online poker sites and amassed $854,000 on PokerStars alone. He is a three-time PocketFives Triple Crown winner whose last accolade came in January. Sweden has four members of the top 10 worldwide, including the top two, while Canada has three members of the top 10: 1. lukethafluke(Sweden) - 8,314 points 2. r4ndomr4gs(Sweden) - 8,141 points 3. pleno1 (UK) - 7,684 points 4.blanconegro (Canada) - 7,503 points 5. p0cket00(Canada) - 7,496 points 6.

  4. It's Wednesday, which means we have recalculated the PocketFives Online Poker Rankings. Finland's Europeanchopped the PokerStars Sunday Million over the weekend for $185,000. The result was a trip to the top five of the Rankings and a 1,156-PLB Point boost. European has $1.6 million in online tournament winnings and three six-figure scores to his credit. --- PocketFives' news coverage is brought to you by Betsafe, one of the leading suppliers of online gaming products worldwide and a major sponsor of Gumball 3000. Sign up now for great bonuses, €3,000,000 guaranteed monthly, and plenty of live events! --- Other than his Sunday Million win, European finished second in a SCOOP $1,200 No Limit Hold'em Six-Max event in May of last year for $223,000 and final tabled this year's SCOOP Mid-Stakes Main Event for $131,000. Other wins include the Bigger $162, Wednesday Hundred Grand, and Bigger $22 on PokerStars, just to name a few. We also have a new #1 player on PocketFives this week. After a one-week reign at #1, Patrick pleno1Leonard (pictured) dropped one spot to #2. Replacing him is p0cket00, who has 7,667 PLB Points and leads Leonard by 140. p0cket00 has the second most online tournament winnings of anyone on PocketFives at $8 million. Russia's veeea moved up 13 spots to land at #12 this week. He finished second in FTOPS Event #30 three days ago for $33,000, his third five-figure score of August. He is $19,000 shy of hitting $3 million in tracked scores and sits at his highest spot ever in the Rankings. Inside the top 100, one of the biggest jumps of the week went to Nick fu_15 Maimone, who rose to #25 from #60. Maimone won last week's PokerStars Super Tuesday for almost $120,000 and amassed almost 800 PLB Points in the process. He has been a member of PocketFives since 2007 and finished 15th in the 2009 World Series of Poker Main Event in Las Vegas. After reentering his poker site names this week, Brazil's Yuri Martinsis slotted at #36 in the world, six off his all-time high set in 2011. Martins won the PokerStars $100 Rebuy over the weekend for $14,000 and took down the 888 Poker Mega Deep on August 10 for another $30,000. He has nearly $3 million in online tournament winnings and is the #2 player in Brazil. Moving up 32 spots to land at #52 is Austria's mindgamer. You might recall he was ranked #1 on our site last year and won the PokerStars Big $162 one week ago for $20,000 and 331 PLB Points. He plays as Jedi AllStar on Full Tilt Poker if you're trying to keep tabs on him. There are seven countries represented in the top 10 of our Rankings, the most we can recall in recent weeks: Canada, UK, Sweden, Finland, Austria, Ukraine, and Chile. Here are the top 10 players in the PocketFives Rankings this week along with the PLB score for each: 1. p0cket00 (Canada) - 7,667 points 2. pleno1 (UK) - 7,527 points 3. r4ndomr4gs (Sweden) - 7,378 points 4.

  5. There wasn't a lot of movement this week in the top 10 worldwide of the PocketFives Online Poker Rankings, but Sweden's lena900moved up from #18 to #9 and was the lone new face in the top 10. On July 29, lena900 won the PokerStars Super Tuesday for over $100,000 officially, a cash that pushed the Swede's PLB Point tally up by 741. --- PocketFives' news coverage is brought to you by Betsson Poker, a leading global online gaming provider. Betsson Poker is available on Mobile and offers regular promotions to live events around the world along with great bonuses and competitions. Play nowfor a chance to win the a Dream Holiday with the Grand Poker Adventures throughout 2014! --- p0cket00is your #1 player once again this week, but holds a very slim 30-point lead over pleno1(pictured above), who is #2 worldwide. The Rankings were not without a little bit of drama this week, as pleno1 won the Full Tilt Poker T-Rex on Tuesday, but the score was not imported until after the Rankings were recalculated. Therefore, pleno1 appears to be in position to be ranked #1 next week unless p0cket00 can hold him off. UK poker player makkapakk moved up from #23 this week to #15 on the strength of three five-figure cashes since August began: second place in the Full Tilt Turbo Hundo, seventh place in a WCOOP Challenge event, and fourth place in the PokerStars Big $162. He passed $2 million in online tournament cashes on July 22. Rising 20 spots this week to #27 and collecting his 21st PocketFives Triple Crownin the process was Chris moorman1Moorman (pictured). The Brit has nine more Triple Crowns than the top 10 players on PocketFives combined and capped off his latest one by winning the Winamax High Roller for $20,000 on August 3. Grayson gray31 Ramage entered the top 100 this week at #41, one of the highest spots we've seen someone debut in the top 100 in several weeks. The cause: Ramage won the WCOOP Challenge $2,100 No Limit Hold'em Main Event for over a half-million dollars, beating a field of nearly 1,500 entrants. Finally this week, we wanted to highlight Poland's dadowiec, who moved up from #90 to #47. He won the Saturday Super Knockout over the weekend for $34,000 and final tabled a PokerStars $109 No Limit Hold'em Turbo 2X Chance tournament the same day for another $6,600. Here are the top 10 players in the PocketFives Rankings this week along with the PLB score for each: 1. p0cket00 - 7,865 points 2. pleno1 - 7,836 points 3. r4ndomr4gs - 7,589 points 4. TheClaimeer - 7,128 points 5. Fresh_Oo_D - 7,096 points 6. Romeopro - 6,978 points 7. lukethafluke - 6,928 points 8. jbrown8777 - 6,810 points 9. lena900 - 6,809 points 10.

  6. Last week, we began our PocketFives Rankings Update by saying there was a very good chance we'd have a new #1 player worldwide this week. And, sure enough, our statement came true, as Patrick pleno1Leonard (pictured) is your new top dog in the PocketFives Online Poker Rankings this week, our first new #1 since July 2. --- PocketFives' news coverage is brought to you by Betsafe, one of the leading suppliers of online gaming products worldwide and a major sponsor of Gumball 3000. Sign up now for great bonuses, €3,000,000 guaranteed monthly, and plenty of live events! --- Leonard has 7,740 PLB Points, 34 more than p0cket00, who was ranked #1 last week, so we have a pretty tight race at the top of the leaderboard. Leonard won his first PocketFives Triple Crownearlier this month, a feat that included a win in the PokerStars Big $162 for $44,000 and 527 PLB Points. He just passed $1 million in career online poker scores. We had three newcomers to the top 10 this week, the most we've had in quite some time, and expect even more turnover as we distance ourselves from the summer poker lull. The first top 10 newcomer is Vienna, Austria's huiiiiiiiiii (pictured), who moved from #11 to #4 on the strength of a win in the PokerStars Sunday 500 over the weekend for $72,000 officially and 636 PLB Points. Four days prior, he won the PokerStars $30,000 Guarantee for almost $9,000. Nicolas PokerKaiser Fierro jumped from #19 to #7, or 12 spots, on the wave of a half-dozen online MTT wins so far in August, boosting his career total to 199.

  8. Over the weekend, Patrick pleno1Leonard (pictured) final tabled the PokerStars Sunday $100 Rebuyfor $21,000. He's the #3 player in the PocketFives Rankings despite only transitioning to MTTs earlier this year and stands at $1.3 million in lifetime winnings. You can find him on Stars under the user name pads1161 and he was kind enough to give us his thoughts on what he considered a monumental breakthrough. PocketFives: Nice job on the Sunday $100 Rebuy final table. How are you feeling about it? Patrick Leonard: Sundays have been fantastic to me all year. I really try to prepare for them. I've final tabled almost all of Majors this year, but the one tournament I never cashed in and seemed to bust early from was the $109 Rebuy. I joked with friends the week previously that I'd never play the tournament again when I lost A-A to A-2 all-in pre-flop. My friend said he'd bet me $1,000 that I would play it again, but I didn't take the bet. To come in fourth is good. I get back a lot of the money I lost playing it previously and a little more to spend in future weeks. Coming in fourth was quite disappointing, honestly. I went into the final table 2/9 and had a big gap over third. I blew up in one hand where I 5bet-folded on an 8-8-2 flop against the chip leader where I never expected him to 4bet a value hand (8-8 or 2-2). Despite me not playing a value hand like that either, I put in 700,000 out of my 1.2 million-chip stack, but he instantly eyeballed me and I felt really stupid. All of the medium stacks busted consecutively, though, meaning I locked up a $20,000+ cash, but going into the final table, I definitely wouldn't have wanted fourth. PocketFives: What about the $109 Rebuy made it difficult for you to get over the hump? Patrick Leonard: I'm not sure. I was definitely running badly. By the end of the rebuy period, lots of tables are starting to pop up that take my attention, so perhaps I wasn't paying enough attention to it. In the last two Sundays, I've taken out PartyPokerand 888 Poker, which make my eyes bleed. That has helped me focus more on PokerStars and Full Tilt, which definitely has helped. I think previously I tried some ambitious bluffs when sometimes you've got to realize that it's Sunday and nobody ever folds a bluff-catcher. PocketFives: You've been at or near the top of the PocketFives Rankings for a while now. How big of an accomplishment is that for you? Do you pay any attention to your position? Patrick Leonard: I definitely pay attention to it. People often say that the PocketFives Rankings don't mean anything, but look at all of the guys in the top 10. I think all of them are up at least $200,000 and most of them are up even more. Of course, there are some guys who don't play high volume who will never be there, but the guys who rise to the top aren't guys who got lucky in one or two tournaments; they are guys who are consistently putting up solid results. TheClaimeer (pictured), for example, grinds really hard most days. If there were no Rankings, then guys like him would go un-noticed. Lots of guys who are "very good at poker" are not very good at making money in poker, either. I really get spurred on by the Rankings and they were one of my main reasons for transitioning from cash games to MTTs. I stopped playing for two or three weeks and it was just after I got to #1 on PocketFives. Previously, I would check every week and see myself going from fifth to fourth to third to second and then first. When I stopped playing, I was almost scared to look that I would be out of the top 10. I saw I was 15th or so and grinded hard to get back to the top. The Rankings, if anything, make me put in volume; hopefully if I put in volume I will make money. PocketFives: What has been the biggest change in your game over the last 12 months? Patrick Leonard: Understanding what MTT guys do. It's well documented that I didn't play tournaments until March of this year. Lots of things I would do in cash games just don't work in MTTs. The "blow up" from the $109 Rebuy on Sunday was similar to that. I think knowing when to hold it in and when to fire out is the biggest thing. Everybody knows how to bluff, how to play tight, how to 3bet, etc., but the thing that separates the okay from the best is knowing when to do what, and a lot of that comes with experience. I'm definitely still learning and am far away from a finished product despite having a good year. PocketFives: You mentioned the Rankings caused you to want to play tournaments. What else prompted that change? Patrick Leonard: I played a live tournament where I met some cash game friends, lost some stupid flip deep into the money, and went to bed telling them I'd never play a tournament again. We woke up, it was Sunday, we hadn't eaten yet, and we just started registering for tournaments that day. I chopped the Warm-Up, won the $250 Six-Max on PokerStars.fr and the $30 Rebuy on PokerStars.com, and my roommate won the 888 Poker Major and something else. I wasn't planning on playing tournaments, but the week after was the anniversary Sunday Million; I came in ninth for $110,000 and decided to stick with it. The Sunday $100 Rebuy runs weekly on PokerStars.

  12. Over the weekend, Finland's Europeanadded to his already impressive poker resume with a win in the PokerStars Sunday $109 Rebuyfor $48,000. He defeated almost 1,000 entrants in the process and notched his fifth largest score to date. "I feel amazing," he told PocketFives on Monday. "It's motivating to get such a nice score right before the biggest two weeks of my poker career kick off." European is referring to SCOOP, a tournament series in which he's logged two of his three largest cashes ever that combine for $350,000. "I'm obviously very happy and the hard work is paying off," European said of his win leading up to SCOOP. "I recently moved to Budapest and live with two really great guys, so that has helped me be more motivated to grind as well." European seems poised for a big run in SCOOP and beyond. Heck, we'll pencil in him for a six-figure win right now. He recently started an MTT stable with emeriaa, Omyg0t, and pleno1. He said of his mindset, "I'm learning a lot of new things every day and it isn't just poker-related stuff, which is nice for a change. I have to admit we are running pretty hot, have a lot of big wins, and have had plenty of deep runs within the stable." European is originally from Finland, but is now 2,000 kilometers south in Hungary. "I really love it here," he said of his new digs. "It's a beautiful city during the day and gets wild at night, which is perfect for me. I live in an apartment at the very top floor without an elevator, so that is keeping me in shape." Hopefully he doesn't purchase a new couch any time soon. "emeriaa(pictured) is one of the hardest working guys I know," the recent Sunday $109 Rebuy winner told us. "He's always up for reviewing hands if he's not playing or in school. He's also highly underrated and one of the names to look out for during SCOOP." emeriaa is #48 worldwide in the PocketFives Rankings and is a breath away from hitting $4 million in career online tournament scores. He said of pleno1, another roommate, "He is a really good friend of mine and one of the reasons I moved to Budapest. I couldn't be in a better environment to play my best game on the tables with all of the fun I'm having off the tables. Finally, Omyg0tis one of the guys I've always talked to and reviewed hands with. He's one of the funniest guys I know and has always helped me out if I've had a problem. On top of that, he's inspires me with the volume he puts in and how humble he is." pleno1 was ranked #1 on PocketFives last year and can currently be found at #7. European was ranked as high as #3 last year and we can only assume that being surrounded by brilliant poker minds will continue to push his career forward.

  16. No PocketFiver enjoyed more success on 888poker in March than Russia's 'josef_shvejk', even though is month actually represents opportunity lost. Picking up $53,950 in earnings on 888poker put him $6,257 ahead of the next highest earner, but almost all of his winnings came from a pair of runner-up finishes in the $1,050 buy-in Whale event. The first came on March 11 when he took home $22,570 for finishing just behind fellow Russian PocketFiver 'papan9_p$'. He picked up the second second place finish two weeks later, taking home $23,924 behind 'B.Mitchell'. He had eight other 888poker cashes on the month for $7,456. The current #10-ranked player in the world, Johannes 'Greenstone25' Korsar, ended up with the second biggest month, banking $47,693.50. He did it thanks to four five-figure scores. Meanwhile, 'papan9_p$' rode his Whale win to a third best finish. Patrick Leonard continued to show the world why he's one of the best MTT players alive. The partypoker Ambassador and former #1-ranked player won the $1,050 buy-in Whale on March 18 for $34,100. It was his first cash on 888poker since October 2017. Austria's 'tiarc' rounded out the top five, picking up $33,964.94 in earnings in March. While the rest of the top five were reliant on big scores, 'tiarc' posted 16 cashes and none bigger than his $9,109 score from winning the $109 buy-in Sunday Challenge on March 18. Another former #1-ranked player, Fabrizio 'SixthSenSe19' Gonzalez, earned $25,459.33, most of that coming after he finished runner-up to Leonard in the Whale on March 18. He also picked up five other cashes that month. Thanks to 32 cashes, 'Kaktus26rus' came in seventh in March, winning $20,219.71. His biggest score came via the $88 buy-in Great 8 event on March 30. Beating 116 other players earned him $ 3,675. A true mid-stakes grinder, just three of his cashes came in events with buy-ins of $109 or larger. The Ukraine's Roman Romanovsky only cashed five times on 888poker in March, but still managed to make his way into the top 10. His biggest score of the month came in the $1,050 buy-in Whale on March 11 when he finished fifth for $8,540. 'nU3DOC' and 'proudflop' rounded out the top 10.

  17. While Sunday marked the beginning of both partypoker Powerfest and the PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker, the headlines instead went to 'Bencb789', who came second in the 888poker $100,000 Sunday Whale for $23,680 and helped 'Team BITBRYE' into an early lead against 'Team Sweden' in their six-figure prop bet.Patrick ‘pleno1’ Leonard confirmed earlier this week that he would be teaming up with RaiseYourEdge head coach 'Bencb789' to take part in a six-figure prop bet against the Swedish duo of 'Lena900' and 'C.Darwin2'. As the first day's play came to an end, it was 'Team BITB RYE' who took the advantage after 'Bencb789', playing under the alias 'f0rmEitseGal', pipped 'C.Darwin2' to second place in the 888poker Whale, after the Swede, could only manage a fourth-place finish for $12,160. https://twitter.com/raiseyouredge/status/993353498199638016 It seems this prop bet will be getting a lot of attention over the next few weeks as the four players go to battle across the all the spring online poker events. As the before mentioned PokerStars SCOOP series begun yesterday, the Sunday Million and Sunday Warm-Up are being played out as two-day tournaments and set to resume Monday at 18:00 WET. Ben 'Ben86' Tollerene and 'yongminbae' were the big winners across the completed PokerStars events yesterday after they took down the $2,100 Sunday High Roller and $530 Bounty Builder High Roller respectively. 2015 WCOOP SHR winner 'Ben86' beat 'ekziter' heads-up to claim the $54,358 first-place prize, while 'yongminbae' came through a field of 1,145 entrants and added $46,577 to their bankroll. Also, Roman 'RomeOpro' Romanovsky made the first of his two 'Sunday Major' final tables this week after finishing in fourth-place in the $2,100 Sunday High Roller for $23,926. partypoker began their latest Powerfest series with three $1m Gtd events across its opening day. 1,703 entrants went to battle in the Powerfest #04-HR $530 $1m Gtd Championship Event with 'sk2ll_m0dR' defeating New Zealand's 'hamishc2' heads-up after both players agreed to a deal. 'sk2ll_m0dR' took away $144,874, with 'hamishc2' beating his previous best recorded online cash of $10,375 by some margin after claiming $143,525. 'alex2pairs' was the winner in the Powerfest #03-SHR $5,200 $1m PKO Championship Event for $99,992 after coming through the 196 strong field. 'TorTor2012' took second-place for $72,579 with 'JohnBoy_' winning $51,737 for third. Roman 'SanityWaterline' Romanovsky appeared at his second major final table of the day in the $1,050 Powerfest #05-HR PKO $1m Gtd Championship Event and repeated his earlier fourth-place finish to win $27,272. 'MonkMode' took the victory for $85,914 after beating 'Ignent' into second-place from the 999 player field for $61,538. Sweden's 'Algorhytm' was pipped at the post in the Powerfest #04-H $109 $200k Gtd event and had to settle for the runners-up prize of $29,742. The current PocketFives world no.#7 succumbed to 'omar091365' heads-up who banked $42,038 and the title. As previously mentioned, 'bencb789' was this week's 888poker $100,000 Whale runner-up and it was 'AceSpade11' who had the honor of beating him for the first-place prize of $35,200.

  18. Brazil's Henrique Bastos Coutinho came through a 5,490 player field to bank $148,292 and become this week's PokerStars Sunday Million champion. Playing under the alias 'Galochina10' he was able to beat 'it.happ3ns.' into second-place for $104,064, with 'mrAndreeew' taking away $73,028 in third-place. The win for Coutinho meant he smashed his previous best recorded online cash of $10,244 by some margin. 'sousinha23' came through a tough PokerStars $2,100 Sunday High Roller final table that included the top two ranked players in the world Lena900 and C.Darwin2 to bank $45,028. 'Lena900' followed by '€urop€an', Michael 'mczhang' Zhang, 'Bigfish112392', 'C.Darwin2' and 'roo_400' exited the tournament before 'probirs' took $25,825 in third. 'sousinha23' was then able to get the better of 'cigarromata' heads-up to take the title with the latter taking $34,100 in second.

'Malapisk' was able to secure two titles across the partypoker Sunday Majors for a combined total prize of $53,894. Firstly, 'Malapisk' and John Adderley agreed to a heads-up deal in the $1,050 Deepstack-HR to bank $36,694 and $33,685 respectively. There were a total of 198 entries, and after 'FoldDigger' fell in third-place for $21,100 the final two made the money deal before 'Malapisk' took down the win, and John Adderley achieved his highest online cash to date. And their second win of the day came in the $109 Sunday Major for $17,200. 'LeadRush' was the player to fall at the hands of 'Malapisk' this time around during heads-up and took away $12,320 for second-place. Elsewhere on partypoker, there was a field of 39 players in the $2,500 Super Sunday High Roller as 'mwhldwn', AKA RaiseYourEdge head coach 'Bencb', beat partypoker ambassador Patrick Leonard to take the win for $40,500.

There was also a second final table appearance of the day for Patrick Leonard after he took fifth-place for $8,183.

Ivan ‘hurrrrican3’ Gabrieli took down the $1,050 The $100,000 Whale for $24,596 after agreeing to a heads-up deal with Alessandro 'ZeroNineee' Valli. Gabrieli, who took the silver medal in last week's 888poker Sunday Mega Deep, went this distance this time around as Valli banked $17,387 as runner-up and Gonzalez claimed $10,950 in third place. Gonzalez then went the distance in the $215 Sunday Mega Deep to add another $19,250 to their Sunday winnings after he defeated 'GangstaGo' heads-up. The runners-up prize was $14,250 with American Bryan 'DePittsterje' Paris taking the final podium spot for $10,750.

  19. The long reign of 'C Darwin2' is over. For the first time in 2018, a new name sits atop the PocketFives Rankings and it took a schedule packed with PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker and partypoker Powerfest events to make it happen. Fellow Swede 'lena900' picked up two SCOOP titles and a Powerfest victory plus three other qualifying cashes to move from #5 to #1. All told, 'lena900' picked up an astonishing 3,375.86 points and $628,508 in those six events. The three victories came in Powerfest #53 ($10,300 Super High Roller NLHE), SCOOP #24-High ($530 NLHE w/rebuys) and SCOOP #39-High ($1,050 NLO8). 'C Darwin2' didn't fall far though. The Swede, who held the #1 spot for the last 20 weeks, wound up at #2 thanks in large part to the massive lead he had built up and the four qualifying cashes he picked up over the last week, adding 979.94 points to his total. While 'lena900' has won multiple titles during POWERSCOOP, 'C Darwin2' failed to win in either of those series over the last week. He did pick up a win in the PokerStars Daily 500 on May 12. Andres 'probirs' Nemeth held on to the #3 spot by adding 917.63 points to his total from two Powerfest cashes and one SCOOP cash. Nemeth now sits 852.4 points behind 'C Darwin2' but just 88.99 ahead of his next closest competitor, Roman 'Romeopro' Romanovsky. Romanovsky, who won two SCOOP titles two weeks ago, picked up just two qualifying cashes for just 311.75 points this past week and fell from #2 to #4. Russia's 'hellohellohello' stayed in the top five, but dropped from #5 to #4. He picked up just 685.59 points from three qualifying cashes and is one of five players with a PLB points total of 10,000 or more. Other big movers this week include 'GINS FINEST' (#17 to #8), Pedro ‘PaDiLhA SP’ Padilha (#15 to #12) and Connor ‘blanconegro’ Drinan (#24 to #17). The biggest jump inside the Top 25 though comes from 'Dattebayo'. The Austrian moved all the way from #47 to #25 thanks to an astonishing 11 qualifying cashes. The Austrian added 2,161.54 points to his total with 975.52 of those coming from a pair of Powerfest wins on May 12.

  20. On the heels of the 2018 World Series of Poker, the month of August is usually a reset for many in the poker world after they take some time to recharge from the strenuous Vegas grind. That doesn't mean the news slows down, though. Here are PocketFives’ top stories from August. Former CardPlayer Employee Charged With Theft of $1.1M from Company August closed with a bang as far as news headlines were concerned, after it was made known that Shelby "Anna" McCann, a former employee of poker media outlet CardPlayer, was charged with the theft of $1.1 million from the company. As reported by the Las Vegas Review-Journal, McCann had been stealing from the company for quite some time, writing checks to herself, increasing her own salary without approval, and paying off personal debt with company money. READ: Former CardPlayer Employee Charged With Theft of $1.1M from Company Badziakouski Wins EPT Barcelona €100K Super High Roller for €1.65M Mikita Badziakouski has had himself quite the 2018. Entering the December Super High Roller Bowl, Badziakouski had already earned more than $14.5 million on the live felt, including four seven-figure scores. One of those huge scores came in August when Badziakouski won the EPT Barcelona €100,000 Super High Roller. Badziakouski topped a field of 54 entries in the six-figure buy-in tournament to continue his incredible pace in 2018. He won the event for the third-largest score of his live tournament career, €1.65 million, and did so in one of the toughest high-stakes tournaments in the world. READ: Badziakouski Wins EPT Barcelona €100K Super High Roller for €1.65M SHRPO Big 4: Eisen Wins Championship, Foxen Goes Back-to-Back Seminole Hard Rock's 'Big 4' group of poker events has quickly risen the ranks as one of the best tournament festivals in the world. This year's event saw Brandon Eisen, Alex Foxen, Marc MacDonnell, and Jake Schindler earn the four major victories. Foxen's win stuck out in particular, and it’s because the event he won, the $2,650 No-Limit Hold'em event, was the same one he won the year before. In 2018, he took home $208,452 for topping a field of 422 entries. In 2017, he bested a field of 395 entries to win $204,600. READ: Eisen Wins Championship, Foxen Goes Back-to-Back The Year of the Fox: Alex Foxen Now Living the Poker Dream Sticking with Foxen, PocketFives' Jeff Walsh sat down with the poker pro in August to discuss the year he was having, bookended by the two SHRPO wins in South Florida. At the time, Foxen stated that he was "aiming to reach #1 in the GPI rankings." He reached that goal in October and remained #1 on the GPI for the rest of the year. READ: Alex Foxen Now Living the Poker Dream SUNDAY MAJORS: Sunday Million DDoS’d; Moorman, Leonard Win Elsewhere Although the names of Chris Moorman and Patrick Leonard are included in the headline on this story, the big story from Sunday, August 12, was that PokerStars had to cancel many of its tournaments due to a DDoS attack across its network that caused outages in events such as the Sunday Million, Sunday Warm-Up, High Roller, and Bounty Builder High Roller, with refunds and prize money distributed. In more positive news from this Sunday, Moorman and Leonard both scored sizable victories on the platforms of their sponsors. READ: Sunday Million DDoS’d; Moorman, Leonard Win Elsewhere ‘hellohellohello’ Wins August Monthly PLB Title PocketFiver 'hellohellohello' claimed the Monthly PLB title for August with 3,062.21 points. His biggest score came on August 19 when he won the PokerStars Sunday Million for $160,888 and 1,091.60 points. He also won the PokerStars $1,050 Thursday Thrill [Progressive KO], $175K Gtd for $27,270 and 378.15 points during August.
