  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

  5. Piotr Nurzynski just might be the Polish Chris Moneymaker. The 28-year-old former doctor, who qualified for the European Poker Tour Barcelona stop online, won €1,037,109 and a seat in the PokerStars Players Championship next January by outlasting the 1,931-player field on his way to the title. The six-handed final table started with Nursynski sitting in second place behind only Haoxiang Wang. It was Wang who did most of the heavy lifting early on though. It took just over two hours of play before the first elimination of the day. With blinds of 125,000/250,000 (250,000) Matthias Tikerpe
  6. As 2019 draws to a close, PocketFives takes a look back at the year that was in poker news, going month-by-month through the biggest and most important stories of the year. Even though it was August, the WSOP Main Event was back in the headlines, as a player that was disqualified from the tournament had a terrorism charge brought against him and another player was being sued over a staking deal. Ken Strauss Arrested and Charged for Terroristic Threat Ken Strauss, who was disqualified from the 2019 World Series of Poker Main Event, was taking into custody and charged with making terroristic t
  7. In January, PokerStars made history by hosting the PokerStars Players Championship - the largest $25,000 buy-in poker tournament of all time.

  8. Hosted by Lance Bradley and Donnie Peters, The Fives Poker Podcast runs each week and covers the latest poker news, preview upcoming events, and debate the hottest topics in poker.

The guys get into all of the details on that and what it could potentially mean for the online poker giant over the next 12 months. They also recap early action from EPT Barcelona, the decision by PokerStars to limit pla
  9. Anybody who watched the 2018 US Poker Open probably remembers seeing a different version of Daniel Negreanu. Nearly six months after first sitting down with a pair of coaches who were tasked with bringing Negreanu up to speed on the game theory optimal approach to poker, the 44-year-old was sitting at the table with measured posture, checking with the same single finger all while being relatively quiet. Skip ahead to Super High Roller Bowl V this past December and most of that was missing. Negreanu was once again chatting up his opponents, playing a looser, seemingly more aggressive game. H

  12. Years ago, Randi Hilsercop gave her husband, Jeremy, an official deck of cards from the World Series of Poker and an autographed 8X10 of his favorite poker player, Daniel Negreanu, as a Christmas gift. Since then, the couple has moved five or six times around the country for Jeremy's job. Throughout all of that, the couple has played poker four or five nights a week using that same deck of cards. The Negreanu picture was lost in one of the moves. So as Randi and Jeremy were opening their Christmas gifts with the rest of their family this year, Jeremy had a feeling that his wife had somehow
  13. Five months ago, Jeremy Hilsercop became the center of the poker world's attention after his wife Randi posted a video showing Jeremy getting a WSOP Big 50 buy-in for Christmas. The video quickly went viral and in the 48 hours that followed, Jeremy ended up with a free seat in the $25,000 buy-in PokerStars Players Championship and had the entire poker world cheering him on. The chaotic days that followed included getting passports, airplane tickets, and planning for a trip to the Bahamas that was just a few days away. While the PSPC trip certainly had the makings of a potential fairytal
  14. Hosted by Lance Bradley and Donnie Peters, The Fives Poker Podcast runs each week and covers the latest poker news, preview upcoming events, and debate the hottest topics in poker.

  15. It was 15 years that Chris Moneymaker turned an $86 satellite win into $2.5 million, a World Series of Poker Main Event title and a special place in poker history. Now, with the help of the PokerStars Platinum Pass, Moneymaker is hoping to make magic happen for somebody else. The Moneymaker PSPC Tour is nine-stop tour running across the United States that will award one $30,000 Platinum Pass at each stop - and the buy-in is just $86. Each Platinum Pass comes with a buy-in to the $25,000 PokerStars Players Championship this January at the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure and an additional $5,0
  16. Over ten months after announcing what is expected to be the largest $25,000 tournament in history, PokerStars has finally revealed what players can expect when they take their seat at the upcoming PokerStars Players Championship. Everything from the tournament structure to the payout percentage was designed for the players by the players as well as members of the PokerStars team. The field is expected to be a mix of elite high-rolling players and the 300 participants that freerolled into the contest by way of winning a Platinum Pass. In total, the prize pool should soar past $10,000,000 wit
  17. A little over a year and a half ago, the marketing manager of an online poker room emailed Scott Baumstein in the middle of the night to offer him a lucrative deal to be a brand ambassador. Unfortunately for Baumstein, it was a case of mistaken identity. They were actually looking for Scott Blumstein, who had just made the final table of the 2017 World Series of Poker Main Event. Search for "Scott Baumstein" on Google and even they ask you, 'Did you mean Scott Blumstein?'. Now, with 15 players left in the PokerStars Players Championship, Baumstein has the chip lead and is in position to win
  18. When PokerStars announced the Platinum Pass program in late 2017, they promised to find unique and interesting ways to give the $30,000 packages away. Over the last six months, players have won them by winning PokerStars-branded live events, random draws at those same events and through online play as well. Now they've weaponized their Ambassadors in quite possibly the most unique Platinum Pass offering yet. Jason Somverille, Liv Boeree and Igor Kurganov, and Jaime Staples have created specific programs tailored towards their own fan base and following that will award a Platinum Pass.
  19. Pennsylvania grinder Thai Ha woke up this morning at the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure expecting to sit down to his 130,300 stack and do everything he could to make Day 3. He arrived at his table a little bit late and almost missed out on what will probably end up being the most exciting - and profitable - part of his day. Ha’s table, one of 45 in play at the start of play Wednesday, was randomly chosen to be part of the PokerStars Players Championship promotion. As the cameras moved in, Joe Stapleton explained the rules to everybody. Each of the seven players was going to be dealt a hand
  20. Every poker player wants to play in the PokerStars Players Championship in Barcelona this August, but not everyone can afford to buy-in for €22,500 (approx. $25,000). Winning a PokerStars Platinum Pass - which includes the buy-in and money for travel and accommodations - could be your ticket to the big dance, and there are plenty of ways to win one. Included in the ways to win a Platinum Pass are the Mega Path qualifier promotion, PokerStars live events, Mystery Chests, and more. Here are the details on how to win a PokerStars Platinum Pass for PSPC 2020. PSPC Mega Path One of the most po
  21. As 2019 draws to a close, PocketFives takes a look back at the year that was in poker news, going month-by-month through the biggest and most important stories of the year. In January, all eyes - and seemingly poker players - were on a tiny island in the Caribbean. PokerStars Players Championship Breaks Records Throughout all of 2018, PokerStars built up hype for the 2019 PokerStars Players Championship, a $25,000 buy-in tournament in the Bahamas as part of the annual PokerStars Caribbean Adventure. By giving away 320 Platinum Passes, which included the $25,000 buy-in and another $5,000 for
  22. 320 Platinum Passes. $1 million added to first place. No rake. Those were some of the key components that made the 2019 PokerStars Players Championship the largest $25,000 buy-in event of all time. The event is coming back in 2020, this time in Barcelona, and it turns out the location is not all that will be different this time around as PokerStars attempts to top the success of the 2019 event. When that inaugural event was announced, the online poker giant promised to award 300 Platinum Passes which included the $25,000 buy-in and $5,000 for travel and other expenses. They ended up handing
  23. The PokerStars Players NL Hold'em Championship is one of the most highly anticipated poker tournaments ever. The event comes with a rake-free $25,000 buy-in, hundreds of Platinum Pass qualifiers and $1 million added to first place prize. The momentous event takes place January 6-10 in the Bahamas and the PocketFives team will be there to cover it from start to finish. The biggest question ahead of the event is, of course, just how big will it be? Poker pro Chance Kornuth recently asked the question on social media and it appears many are pegging PSPC to be enormous. https://twitter.com/C
  24. Nearly every ride at Disney World starts with a slow build-up and crescendos into some combination of speed and excitement before inevitably slowing to a halt to allow the rider to safely depart. The last 14 months of Anthony Maio’s life have closely resembled a thrill ride, but one that shows no signs of slowing down at all. The slow build-up actually came in October 2017 at Disney World in Orlando when he proposed to his longtime girlfriend, Jenelle, while Mickey and Minnie Mouse and Jenelle’s daughter looked on. Things began to accelerate a few months later when he took some of the money
  25. Like a lot of amateur poker players, Steven-John Jost wanted to qualify for the 2018 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure to combine some poker with some Bahamian sunshine for a vacation. He ended up with way more than that. Jost qualified on PokerStars.com and wound up finishing 74th to earn $17,500 for his second career live cash. "For me, that's big money. It's great," said Jost, who works in a labratory back home in Switzerland. Like everybody who made the money at PCA, Jost had his name entered into a draw for Platinum Pass, the $30,000 package that includes entry to the $25,000 buy-in
