Hosted by Lance Bradley and Jeff Walsh, The Fives Poker Podcast is LIVE this week from the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure with daily episodes bringing in all of the guests and action from the PokerStars Players No Limit Championship and the PCA Main Event.

  3. Exactly one year ago today, Maria Konnikova was basically a complete unknown in the poker world. Sure, some people knew that a New York Times bestselling author had enlisted the assistance of Erik Seidel to learn how to play poker so she could write a book about it all, but almost nobody would have been able to put a name to that person. Then, over the course of the next seven hours, Konnikova became a known commodity, winning the $1,650 National Championship at the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure. The win came with $84,600 and one of the very first $30,000 Platinum Passes to be awarded. Sud
  4. On a normal day, Jon West is involved with some of the most important people in the cryptocurrency world. The last five days haven't been normal for West though. And no, we're not talking about the swings in the price of Bitcoin. West is one of the last 20 players in the 2018 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure Main Event chasing down the seven-figure score that comes with first place. The 26-year-old isn't just some rich kid from the world of crypto splashing around in a poker tournament though. He's been playing poker since he was 14 years old. When he was five years old his father introduc
  5. A few days ago Cary Katz contemplated skipping the opening few days of the 2018 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure altogether and flying his family to Atlanta to watch his alma mater, the University of Georgia Bulldogs, play in the NCAA Championship football game. He didn't though, and Monday night, just minutes after the game kicked off, Katz capped off an impressive three-day run to win the $100,000 Super High Roller for nearly $1.5 million. "I did think about flying to the game to watch it, but decided I'd rather watch it here with my family, even if it's not live," said Katz. "If Georgia
  6. [caption width="640"] Antonio Esfandiari is no stranger to high stakes, high pressure situations.[/caption] There are a number of ways in which a poker player can be disqualified from a tournament. On Sunday, Day 2 of the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure Main Event, Antonio Esfandiari was disqualified and it had nothing to do with anything the Poker Tournament Directors Association has ever made a rule for. Esfandiari was disqualified for urinating into a bottle while at a table. You read that right. Mother nature called and rather than leave the table and head to the men's room, Esf
  7. In January, PokerStars made history by hosting the PokerStars Players Championship - the largest $25,000 buy-in poker tournament of all time.

  8. 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
  9. 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 in

The Super High Roller event was the main focus of many at Paradise Island in the Bahamas, as deep-pocketed pros and wealthy businessmen alike vied for the first big money championship of the 2015 poker season.

Each of those players earned mammoth payouts from their victories, but where do they stack up on the 2019 money leaderboard? Let’s take a look. The $25,000 buy-in PSPC was such an enormous tournament that the top three finishers from that event make up the top three spots on the 2019 PCA mone

  15. The highlight of the final day of the 2019 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure might have been the final table of the Main Event, but on one of the outer tables, Martin Zamani was putting on a show of his own in the $25,000 High Roller event.

  18. Everyone in poker knows what January brings. It brings a fresh start to the poker year, it brings the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure, and it brings a big result for Tony Gregg. This year, the PokerStars Players NL Hold’em Championship may have added an exciting new element to the poker world, but much was the same in regards to Gregg making a big splash in the Bahamas. Entering the 2019 edition of the PCA, Gregg had earned $3.096 million from the stop and sat third on the festival’s all-time money list. He added another $86,400 to his total haul from PCA after placing 36th from a field of 1

  21. Pretty impressive news coming out of the Bahamas, the site of the 2015 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure. The weekend's Sunday Supersonic on PokerStars brought out $1,238 entrants. The prize pool of the $215 buy-in tournament swelled to $291,000 and, when the smoke cleared, PocketFiver Carter cswidler Swidler (pictured) finished fourth for $21,000. While taking fourth in the Supersonic isn't a mind-numbing feat on its own, consider the fact that Swidler was playing the $10,300 buy-in PCA Main Event at the same time. He told PokerNews, "I don't ever do that, but I set my alarm for 6:25 t

[caption width="640"] PokerStars' PCA Ultra Satellite guarantees an 100 online qualifiers[/caption] Even before Christian Harder hoisted the 2017 PokerStars Championship Bahamas trophy, officials at the worldwide leader in online poker, PokerStars, knew that in 2018 they would need to make changes.
