  1. There was a major shakeup this week atop the PocketFives Poker Rankingswhen the leaderboard was recalculated on Wednesday. Let's start with last week's #1, Chris moorman1Moorman, who slid to #5 with 7,225 PLB Points. It was, incredibly, Moorman's 21st stint at #1 and he remains within striking distance of the top spot, which Sweden's Anton VnilaVader Herrmann (pictured) now owns with 7,516 PLB Points. Herrmann has had quite a blockbuster week. On Sunday, he won the FTOPS Two-Day Event on Full Tilt Pokerfor $109,000 and 742 PLB Points. The tournament, which drew 787 entrants, had a prize pool that passed $550,000 and Herrmann netted the largest tracked online cash of his career in the process. He has $2.7 million in online winnings and plays as mrbraton Full Tilt and MORTIIIIIIIIon PokerStars. Swedes continue to have a death grip on the Rankings, owning three of the top four spots and half of the top 12. Since Christmas, Swedes have held the top spot in the Rankings for all but three weeks. There are 470 Swedish online poker players on PocketFives who have PLB scores. Rick TheClaimeer Trigg (pictured) moved up from #14 to #7 this week, one spot off his highest position ever. Since April began, Trigg has amassed $75,000 in tracked scores across 60 in the money finishes, an average of $1,250 each. He is from Sheffield, England and won a Grosvenor UK Poker Tour live event last November for $84,000. Sweden's inhoo also made waves this week, moving up from #22 worldwide to #8. He won the PokerStars Big $162 on April 7 for $21,000 and is up to $4.1 million in online earnings. Despite being ranked #8 worldwide, inhoo is #4 in his home nation and has been a member of PocketFives since the Beijing Olympics. As we mentioned, the top 10 received quite a makeover this week, including the addition of r4ndomr4gs, who rose 21 spots to land at #10, three off his all-time high. The Swede won the PokerStars Hot $75 on Monday for $11,000, one day after taking down the Sunday Supersonic for $56,000 officially and 566 PLB Points. He has $3.6 million in tracked scores from 2,600 in the money finishes. Outside of the top 10, PureCash25 (pictured) rocketed from #42 to #17 on the strength of three five-figure scores already in April, including wins in the PokerStars Big $22 and $215 Rebuy on back-to-back days last week for $33,000 total. He is the top-ranked PocketFiver in British Columbia, Canada. Finally, we wanted to single out Scotland's Niall firaldo Farrell, who re-entered the top 100 at #35. Usually, the highest-ranked new player in the top 100 is in the 60s or 70s, but Farrell managed to jump all the way to #35. The cause: a $236,000 victory in the FTOPS Main Event that was worth 1,238 PLB Points, one of the largest totals you'll see for a single cash. Here are the top 10 players in the Rankings this week along with the PLB score for each: 1. VnilaVader - 7,516 points 2. lukethafluke - 7,485 points 3. huiiiiiiiiii - 7,481 points 4. Sheater - 7,362 points 5. moorman1 - 7,225 points 6. Flush_Entity - 6,962 points 7. TheClaimeer - 6,904 points 8. inhoo - 6,833 points 9. bparis - 6,832 points 10. r4ndomr4gs - 6,813 points Congrats to all of our ranked members this week!

  2. The PocketFives Rankingswere recalculated on Wednesday and, unlike last week, the top 10 worldwide remained relatively unchanged. Your #1 player in the world is still Anton VnilaVaderHerrmann, who is one of four Swedes in the top seven of the Rankings and won the PokerStars Bigger $55 three days ago for $42,000 to solidify the top spot for the second straight week. Herrmann has about 300 PLB Points more than the second place player in the Rankings. No player has held onto the top spot for more than four weeks since October. Outside of the top 10, there was plenty of movement, as Alen lilachaa Bilic (pictured) moved up from #43 worldwide to #20, his highest ranking ever. Bilic has been a rock star over the past six weeks, posting the following wins, among others, since March began: April 13: 1st Place in the PokerStars Sunday 500 for $79,000 April 20: 1st Place in the iPoker Sunday Special for $33,000 March 8: 1st Place in the PokerStars Big $162 for $21,000 April 9: 1st Place in FTOPS Event #22 for $21,000 Another major jump this week belonged to Steve Illini213Barshak, who moved up from #65 in the world to #39. Barshak won the PokerStars $109 No Limit Hold'em Turbo Cubed three days ago for $21,000 and received his $5 million cash badge on PocketFives on April 14; he is one of only three people to accomplish that feat this year. Barshak has been a member of PocketFives since 2007 and you can follow him on Twitter under the handle @illini213. Russia's veeea(pictured), who was ranked as high as #14 in the world last year, is back up to #64 after ascending 35 spots this week. He has seven tracked wins since March 29: the iPoker €5,000 Guaranteed, PartyPokerHigh Roller, PokerStars $109 No Limit Hold'em Turbo Cubed, iPoker €12,500 Guaranteed, Full Tilt Poker $7,000 Guaranteed, and PokerStars $109 No Limit Hold'em Quad (twice). The highest new player in the top 100 this week was hauptschule, who came in at #73, his best ranking ever. The Germany poker community member has had a rock solid month of April, including victories in the PokerStars $109 Sunday Rebuy, PokerStars.fr €15,000 Guaranteed, and PokerStars Sunday Kickoff for $100,000 total. Finally, we wanted to single out pmahoney1, who moved up from #136 worldwide to #80. This poker player from Mexico won the PokerStars Big $55 last week for $18,000 and finished third in the site's Super Tuesday three days before that for $58,000. Also this month, he has won the PokerStars $320 No Limit Hold'em Six-Max, $27 Saturday Eliminator, and Hot $75 for $32,000 combined. Without further delay, here are the top 10 players in the PocketFives Rankings this week along with the PLB score for each: 1. VnilaVader - 7,812 points 2. Sheater - 7,490 points 3. Flush_Entity (pictured) - 7,416 points 4. huiiiiiiiiii - 7,271 points 5. lukethafluke - 7,263 points 6. moorman1 - 7,207 points 7. r4ndomr4gs - 6,993 points 8. TheClaimeer - 6,870 points 9. brianm15 - 6,826 points 10. rounder63 - 6,794 points Congrats to all of our ranked players. Want the latest poker headlines and interviews?

  3. The PocketFives Online Poker Rankingswere recalculated on Wednesday and for the eighth time this year, we have a new #1 ranked player. This week, it's Griffin Flush_Entity Benger (pictured), who has been on a tear as of late and assumes the #1 spot for the first time since mid-2012. We caught up with Benger shortly after the Rankings were released. Here are the top 10 players this week along with the PLB score for each: 1. Flush_Entity - 7,853 points 2. VnilaVader - 7,552 points 3. lukethafluke - 7,304 points 4. moorman1 - 7,221 points 5. r4ndomr4gs - 7,217 points 6. Sheater - 7,137 points 7. huiiiiiiiiii - 7,083 points 8. blanconegro - 7,017 points 9. lena900 - 6,828 points 10. Yaya24 - 6,816 points PocketFives: Congrats! Tell us how you're feeling about being back at #1 in the world. Griffin Benger: I knew it was a matter of time with the heater I've been on recently and figured after my Hot $55 win on Sunday, this would be the week it happened. I stayed up a bit last night to wait for the Rankings to change. It's hard not to get a good night's sleep after you find out you're #1 at anything, let alone something as competitive as poker. --- Follow professional sports tipsters, make your own betting tips, and compete for real cash prizes. Tipdayis the ultimate sports tipping resource. Check it out. --- PocketFives: Do the Rankings mean a lot to you? Are they a motivator or how do they affect your mindset while playing? Griffin Benger: PocketFives has always been an incredible tool for me to track my progress, compare my success to my peers, and give me goals outside of just making money. It can get a bit monotonous to play MTT poker day after day trying to make money. It's fun when you see you're in contention for a Monthly or Yearly PLB or need one more win for a PocketFives Triple Crown. Dan Cypra: What do you attribute your recent success to? You've had a PokerStarsSunday 500 win, Sunday Supersonic final table, and Super Tuesday final table in the last few months, just to name a few key scores. Griffin Benger: I've been very fortunate in the sense that if I have ever felt like I might be hitting a bit of a lull in my game, I'm exposed to someone who's having a lot of success at the time who has been able to help me get to the next level. First it was Shyam s_dot111Srinivasan, then Calvin cal42688Anderson (pictured), then Paul paulgees81Volpe, then Simon pokerbrat13Charette, then Evan Jarvis of Gripsed.com, and most recently I attribute a great deal of my success to working with Connor blanconegro Drinan. Connor and I spent nearly a month-and-a-half together in Europe and were constantly grinding together and bouncing ideas off each other about different ways to approach hands and spots. It has done wonders for my game. It's really important to have a broad network of friends and colleagues in poker. Even if you might be considered better than a certain player, they are definitely doing something better than you, and if you're not going out of your way to find out what that is and then implementing it into your game, you're just being lazy. Laziness is the biggest problem in online MTT culture. We have so many tools out there to be successful, but people would rather moan and groan about how badly they run than work harder. The game is constantly evolving and becoming more challenging. If you're not evolving with it, you're either being lazy or don't want it as badly as I do. PocketFives: You're still with Phil Ivey's training site, right? Griffin Benger: Yes, I am. I share a great deal of insight in my first training video series of my Sunday 500 final table at IveyLeague.com. I genuinely feel the Masters membership is worth the money.

  4. It was a good week to be Austria's huiiiiiiiiii(pictured), who shot up 12 spots to #4 in the PocketFives Online Poker Rankings, his highest position ever. The top-ranked player in Austria, huiiiiiiiiii earned $11,000 after a runner-up finish in the PokerStars.fr Night on Stars on Sunday. Two days prior, he hit the jackpot in a WCOOP Challenge $215 No Limit Hold'em Rebuy, officially taking home $126,000 and 676 PLB Points after exiting in second place. The WCOOP Challenge was the largest score we've tracked for huiiiiiiiiii, more than doubling his second largest, which came in 2011 after an 11th place finish in the WCOOP Main Event. He won the PokerStars Sunday $100 Rebuy last year for $52,000 and is fresh off earning his $3 million cash badge. We had two other new entrants into the top 10 this week, which meant quite a shakeup at the top of the pack for the first time in a while. ekzitermoved up from #16 to #6 on the strength of a second place finish in the opening Full Tilt PokerFTOPS event on Sunday. His performance was worth $85,000 in cash plus 495 PLB Points, moving him over $2.5 million lifetime. ekziter is a four-time PocketFives Triple Crown winner, three of which came last year. Also entering the top 10 this week was Charlie chaz_man_chazCombes (pictured), who rose eight spots to settle at #10. A member of PocketFives since 2010, Combes won the PokerStars Big $162 on March 25 for $23,000 and 363 PLB Points. Three days later, he took down the Tyrannosaurus Rex for nearly $10,000 along with 229 PLB Points. Combes is up to $4.3 million in tracked scores after earning his $4 million cash badge in January. Connor Drinan, who goes by blanconegroon PocketFives, rocketed from #39 to #15, his highest position ever, after final tabling the Sunday Brawl over the weekend for $14,000 and 197 PLB Points. He final tabled a WCOOP Challenge event on March 28 for $38,000 and recorded three tracked wins last month to bring his total to 49. Drinan is the top-ranked player in the British Columbia poker community. It feels like we frequently mention Toby 810ofclubs Lewis, who moved up 23 spots from #51 to #28 this week. He has a monstrous Sunday that included a second place finish in the PokerStars Sunday $100 Rebuy for $48,000. All told, he had a dozen in the money finishes that day for $62,000 and nearly 1,000 PLB Points total. Finally, we wanted to single out Brazil's pedrohennn (pictured), who ended up at #45 this week after being ranked #85 seven days ago. The recent PocketFives signup also turned in a rock solid Sunday that included wins in the Full Tilt Super Sized Sunday and PokerStars $215 No Limit Hold'em Turbo for $35,000 and $11,000, respectively. He has $1.4 million in online scores and plays as peterwhooo on the largest online poker site in the land, PokerStars. Here are the top 10 players in the PocketFives Rankings this week along with the PLB score for each. Swedes still hold three of the top five spots and 10 of the top 40: 1.

Three of the top four players in the PocketFives Rankings are from Sweden, which incidentally overtook Canada in the PocketFives' Country Poker Rankings for the top spot this week after briefly losing its stranglehold on #1. Austria's huiiiiiiiiii(pictured) moved up from #11 worldwide to #6. He has exactly 50 cashes already this month for a combined $47,000 and is closing in on 100 first place finishes for his career. If you're playing on Full Tilt, you can find the Austrian under the user name IneedMoneyXX. Jumping 17 spots to land at #25 was buckguy 2200, who was ranked as high as #11 earlier this year. The Playa del Carmen, Mexico poker player is about $100,000 away from $3 million in online scores and won the PokerStars Big $162 six days ago for $15,000.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  12. Over the last weekend of August, Russia's MAMOHT_T(pictured) came away with the victory in the 888 Poker Mega Deep. Defeating a field of 681 entrants meant a $32,000 payday, as he defeated fellow PocketFiver Grind24seven heads-up. In part as a result of his recent performance, MAMOHT_T has found his way into the top five of the PocketFives Online Poker Rankings, settling in at #5 in the world, and just lapped $4.6 million in online tournament winnings. We caught up with the top-ranked Russian to talk about his latest claim to fame. PocketFives: Nice job on the 888 Mega Deep win. How are you feeling about it? MAMOHT_T: I feel great and very happy, of course. PocketFives: Can you walk us through how the tournament went in general for you and give us your thoughts on its structure, field, and buy-in? MAMOHT_T: The tournament went pretty calmly for me. Until there were 40 or 50 players left, I managed to gradually increase my stack – nothing really special. Starting when there were 40 opponents, the field began to play more aggressively and I had to fight back. When there were six players left, I became the chip leader and remained at the top until the end, busting one opponent after another. The tournament is very good. It has a very good and smooth structure and the buy-in is also okay for its structure. PocketFives: You've had several five-figure scores this year, including a win in the Full Tilt $250,000 Guaranteed. Tell us about what has been going right for you this year and why. MAMOHT_T: I play a lot, try hard in every tournament, and sometimes get lucky. The result is victories and it's awesome when a victory comes with a five-figure score. PocketFives: Do you have any plans for the money? What have you used your poker winnings for this year? MAMOHT_T: Nothing special. I live for fun, go on holidays with my wife, and help my parents. I am thinking about getting a good car this year. PocketFives: Speaking of this year, what goals do you have poker-wise for the rest of 2014? MAMOHT_T: I would like to win one or two events during the WCOOP and then go to an EPT stop, as I really want and like to play offline, although I do so rarely. PocketFives: What do you do besides poker? What else interests you? MAMOHT_T: Poker takes up a lot of my time, so I don't have a lot of time to spend on other interests. I love to travel to visit interesting places in other countries, play Dota2 periodically, and the rest of my time is given to my wife, friends, and parents.

For the first time in recent memory, there were no new entrants to the top 10 in the Rankings this week. Instead, the 10 existing players jostled for position behind p0cket00. Last week's #1, Patrick pleno1 Leonard (pictured), moved down four spots to #5 in the world.
