  1. After reentering his screen names last week, Norway's prebzzzjumped nearly to the top of the PocketFives Online Poker Rankings, landing at #6. This is the highest he has ever been in the Rankings and, not surprisingly, he's the top-ranked PocketFiver in Norway. prebzzz has made mincemeat of the Super Tuesday this year, final tabling it twice for almost $130,000 total. He finished second in the tournament in mid-June for $73,000 and took fourth in January for $55,000. In between, prebzzz won the Big $109 and final tabled the Sunday Warm-Up for $46,000 and $42,000, respectively. On top of the Rankings ever since May 6 is Nico PokerKaiser Fierro (pictured above), who continues to dominate the leaderboard. He is entering his ninth week on top of the Rankings and has recorded four wins since mid-June. Fierro has 7,553 PLB Points, 400 more than the second place player. This is the longest anyone has been at the top of the Rankings since Cal cal42688 Anderson's 22 weeks in 2012 and 2013. Joao joaomathiasMathias (pictured) moved up from #10 to #5 thanks in part to a second place finish in the PartyPoker Sunday Major for $13,000 over the weekend. He has $6.2 million in career online tournament winnings and has been a member of PocketFives since 2008. A former #1 player on PocketFives, Legenden moved up four spots to reenter the top 10 at #9. He was last ranked #1 on our site two years ago and now owns $4.1 million in career scores. Two of his four largest cashes all-time have come in 2015: a victory in the Super Tuesday for $102,000 and a SCOOP final table for $79,000. There wasn't a ton of movement in the Rankings this week, but one of the biggest jumps went to Russia's Blackk, who moved up 45 spots to land at #30. He has three tracked wins in the last 10 days, bringing his career total to 186. Blackk is $115,000 shy of hitting $5 million in online MTT winnings. Here are the top 10 players in the Rankings this week along with the PLB score for each: 1. PokerKaiser- 7,553 points 2. hellohellohello - 7,159 points 3.

  2. It's Wednesday, which means the PocketFives Online Poker Rankingswere refreshed. Just like every week, we had several players make waves, including prebzzz, who entered his screen names and consequently jumped to #3 in the world, a new all-time high. He has $2.5 million in career winnings and is the top-ranked Norwegian on our site. prebzzz final tabled the 888Whale over the weekend for $13,000, about the same amount as he received for finishing second in the PokerStars.fr Sunday Uppercut one week earlier. In late September, the Norway poker community member won the PokerStars $109 No Limit Hold'em Cubed for $20,000. prebzzz has 6,802 PLB Points, the measure used to determine the Rankings, but still trails top-ranked eisenhower1 by 1,200. Speaking of eisenhower1, the Swede continues to churn out solid scores. He won the 888 Crocodile on October 18 for $16,000 and banked $133,000 following a WCOOP $700 No Limit Hold'em Cubed win in September. Another Swede, Yaya24, moved up seven spots to crack the top 10 at #5. This is the highest he has ever been ranked and comes in part after winning a PartyPoker Pokerfest High Roller Event for $32,000 on Monday. On October 11, he made the final table of the PokerStars Sunday Million for $4,000 more. Swedes comprise half of the top eight spots in the Rankings and eight Swedes appear in the top 20 worldwide. Accordingly, Sweden has a healthy lead in our Country Poker Rankings and has a combined PLB score of its top 20 players of 108,068 PLB Points, which is 5,000 more than the second-ranked UK. Australia's krasark climbed 37 spots in the Rankings to #47 in the world after finishing third in the Sunday Million over the weekend and cashed for $127,000. The week before, krasark won the PokerStars Sunday $109 Rebuy, so he has been on a tear as of late. The Aussie passed $3 million in career online tournament scores two weeks ago. A former #1 ranked player, norfair18 (pictured), reappeared in the top 100 this week at #66. He was last ranked #1 in May and took down the PokerStars $215 No Limit Hold'em Turbo earlier this month for $20,000. He final tabled last week's Super Tuesday and is quickly closing in on $2 million in online MTT scores. Finally this week, we wanted to highlight RoccoGe, who reentered the top 100 at #72. This Italian has six wins since October 15, raising his career total to 132, and he plays as sephirot88 on PokerStars. He was ranked as high as #18 on PocketFives last year. Here are the top 10 players in the Rankings this week along with the PLB score for each: 1. eisenhower1- 8,024 points 2. NigDawG - 7,008 points 3. prebzzz- 6,802 points 4. Tiny_molester - 6,761 points 5. Yaya24- 6,656 points 6. C Darwin2 - 6,636 points 7. cswami - 6,594 points 8. lena900 - 6,535 points 9. jbrown8777 - 6,523 points 10. veeea - 6,411 points Congrats to all of our ranked players.

  3. For the first time since May 6, a span of 16 weeks, we have a new #1 player in the PocketFives Online Poker Rankings. By a slim 63-point margin, Aaron aguskbGustavson (pictured) is our new #1 member worldwide, overtaking Nico PokerKaiser Fierro. --- Tournament Poker Edgeis the only poker training site dedicated exclusively to MTTs and features over 1,000 training videos, blogs, articles, podcasts and a dedicated strategy forum for members. Check Tournament Poker Edge out on Twitter. --- Gustavson is a man of volume. In fact, he has recorded 80 in the money finishes in online MTTs we track in the last five days, an average of 16 per day. To close out June, he was the runner-up in the PokerStars Super Tuesday and earned $52,000. Earlier this month, our new #1 player final tabled the PokerStars Sunday $109 Rebuy and walked away with $29,000. Gustavson won last month's PocketFives Monthly PLB and is one of 337 PocketFivers with PLB scores from Mexico. He is a few thousand dollars shy of hitting $4 million in winnings all-time. However, with such a slim lead over Fierro, can he retain the #1 spot when the Rankings are recomputed next Wednesday? Fierro (pictured) ruled the roost for 16 straight weeks, the longest run by any PocketFiver since Cal cal42688 Anderson was ranked #1 for 22 weeks from September 2012 to February 2013. Fierro, from Chile, has 675 top-three finishes in online MTTs we track for a total of $8.3 million, the third highest total of anyone on our site. Also shaking up the Rankings this week was prebzzz, who reentered his screen names and debuted at #3 in the world. He has six wins so far this month and has final tabled the Super Tuesday twice this year, once in June and once in January, for a combined $128,000. He calls Norway home and his #3 ranking is his highest so far. Denmark's Allen sifosisBaekke moved up from #13 to #6 this week, his best showing ever, after winning two $109 Rebuys on PokerStars in the last two days. He passed $4 million in career online tournament winnings this week and plays as Baekke2 on William Hill. He is #1 out of 509 Danish PocketFivers with PLB scores. Finally this week, we wanted to single out Windsor's Justin Ouimette(pictured), who shot up from #49 to #27, his highest mark ever, thanks to notching four wins in the last week. Last Tuesday, he took down both the Full Tilt Fat Tuesday and PokerStars Big $55 for a combined $23,000. He is the top-ranked Canadian PocketFiver. Here are the top 10 players in the Rankings this week along with the PLB score for each: 1. aguskb - 7,104 points 2. PokerKaiser - 7,041 points 3. prebzzz - 6,908 points 4. veeea - 6,571 points 5. Sheater - 6,380 points 6. sifosis - 6,152 points 7. Legenden - 6,093 points 8. eisenhower1 - 6,087 points 9. joaomathias - 6,087 points 10. Ariados - 6,072 points Congrats to all of our ranked players! Want the latest poker headlines and interviews? Follow PocketFives on Twitterand Like PocketFives on Facebook.
  4. [caption width="600"] Preben 'prebzzz' Stokkan is the top-ranked online poker player in Norway[/caption] Poker is incredibly different from country to country. From the robust live games in the UK to limited regulated online poker in the US, no matter where you go, poker is inherently different. And that's part of what makes the game so unique. For the 558 poker players from Norway who have PLB scores on PocketFives, a bustling online poker scene is juxtaposed with an up-and-coming live scene. 2014 World Series of Poker Main Event runner-up Felix Stephensen is from Norway. So is Annette 'Annette_15' Obrestad. The top-ranked online poker player from Norway right now is Preben 'prebzzz' Stokkan, who won the PokerStars Sunday 500 last weekend for $62,000. And for Stokkan, winning that big time tournament boosted him all the way to #22 worldwide in the PocketFives Rankings, 19 spots off his all-time high of #3 set last year. "I spend fewer hours playing than many other regulars," Stokkan said. "It's usually under 30 hours per week, but I work really hard on my game when I'm not playing. I am always focusing on improving and I think I've become a lot better in the last couple of months." When he's not playing poker, Stokkan is traveling and working out. He also spends plenty of time with his friends watching football or putting back an adult beverage. Sometimes both at the same time. In the end, though, it's all about poker and making his fellow countrymen proud. "Winning big tournaments feels amazing," he said. "I think winning the Sunday 500 will help build up my confidence toward future tournaments both online and live." The live tournament scene in Norway is just getting ramped up. Take the Norwegian Poker Championships, for example. Even with a name that includes the word "Norwegian," the Norwegian Poker Championships had been held outside of Norway in recent years. However, a series of events was held in Norway late last year in cities like Oslo and Trondheim. Therefore, live tournaments are picking up steam in Norway after the government there changed its tune in a 2014 decision that permitted home games. In fact, almost 2,000 players turned out for a Norway Cup event last November in Oslo, which fittingly featured Stephensen hoisting the Main Event trophy and earning $161,000. [caption width="620"] Felix Stephensen is Norway's top money earner. (Photo PokerListings)[/caption] "Besides the Norwegian Championships, which we finally were allowed to host in Norway, I haven't really played many live games here," Stokkan said. "I play online when I'm home and live when I'm out travelling." "Poker has become so big in Norway," he said. "We had 1,500 Norwegians traveling to Dublin every year to play the Norwegian Championships there. Now, it's back in Norway. The Norwegian poker community is amazing. There are so many nice people, so it was great to play a live tournament here in Oslo. I'm definitely going back this year." "The Norwegian Poker Championships were very cool. I was very happy to sit down with fellow Norwegians and play," he said. "The atmosphere is usually better during the Norwegian events in comparison to EPTs and other international tournaments. Everyone is having such a good time playing poker, talking to each other, drinking beer, and so on." Next to Norway geographically is the poker powerhouse of Sweden, which has dominated the online poker scene and owns the top spot in the PocketFives Country Poker Rankings. Perhaps the Swedes' dominance provides some motivation for their Scandinavian counterparts. "It's sick how well the Swedish tournament crew has been doing lately," he said. "All creds to them, but I'm hoping to beat them all in the PocketFives rankings by the end of the year." The Hendon Mob credits Stokkan with almost $70,000 in live winnings, so needless to say, that part of the poker world is untapped for him thus far. Compare that with over $3 million in online winnings. "I haven't been doing too well on the live circuit yet," he said. "Besides a 22nd place in the EPT Prague Main Event last year, I don't have too many big live scores. I'm relatively new to the live tournament scene, though, and have only been playing tournaments the last two years. I used to play cash games before that."
  5. [caption width="639"] Look out, world. Artem 'veeea' Vezhenkov is back up to #2 in the PocketFives Rankings[/caption] Getting back to the top of the PocketFives Rankings is a lot like riding a bike: once you fall off, you get can get right back on. For Artem 'veeea' Vezhenkov, losing his grip on the top spot in the rankings in mid-February is probably just a distant memory, as he has risen all the way back to #2 worldwide. Vezhenkov was #1 in the world for three weeks, a streak that ended in February, and now has 7,036 PLB Points, 234 behind the leader, 'lena900'. The man they call 'veeea' dropped to #2 on February 10 and then bounced between #9 and #10 until March 23, when he scooted up to #4. Now, he's back up two spots. Vezhenkov finished second in the opening SCOOP event on PokerStars.fr on Sunday for $16,000 and reached the final table of the 888 Whale the same day. He has over 550 top-three finishes in online MTTs and passed $5 million in career earnings last month. 'lena900' continues to pace the rankings. The Swede has 7,270 PLB Points and is enjoying his second week at #1. He took down the bwin High Roller last Friday for $13,000 and 223 PLB Points to pad his lead; it was the 93rd win of his career. 'lena900' is up to $4.1 million in lifetime winnings online. Joel 'brown8777' Brown ticked up two spots to #8, five places off his all-time high set last year. He has made the money 16 times so far this month and is quickly approaching $4 million in career winnings. Brown is the top-ranked online poker player in Canada and calls the Pacific Coast city of Vancouver home. Another Canadian, Jimmy 'JMolloy' Molloy, moved up 12 spots to #17 and seems poised for another run at the top 10. Molloy has already won the PokerStars $55 Rebuy and $109 No Limit Hold'em Turbo in April and took third in the 888 Late Night Crocodile and PokerStars $109 Rebuy. He was ranked as high as #8 in 2014. "It feels good to move up so many spots, but I try not to focus on stuff like that too much and try to just be satisfied with my play overall, which I have been for the most part lately," Molloy said. "I feel like I have lots of work to do on my game off the tables to reach the top spot, but who knows, maybe I will luckbox my way into it anyways." [caption width="600"] Preben 'prebzzz' Stokkan moved up 19 spots[/caption] Norway's Preben 'prebzzz' Stokkan rocketed 19 spots up the leaderboard to #22. He was the winner of the PokerStars Sunday 500 over the weekend for $62,000 officially and earned almost 600 PLB Points in the process; it was the second largest score of his career. The Norwegian was ranked as high as #3 on PocketFives last year and hit $3 million in career scores on Tuesday. "It feels good," Stokkan said. "But, it's still a long way to the top." Sweden's Anton 'AnteSvante' Wigg rose 20 places in the rankings to #34. On the last day of March, Wigg won the 888 Quarterback for $13,000 and 250 PLB Points. The same day, he finished third in the PokerStars Thursday Thrill and put back $32,000 and almost 300 PLB Points. Wigg was ranked as high as #2 on PocketFives last year. "It feels good," Wigg said. "It has been a rough start to the year. I hate to even mention it, but I ran very poorly to start the year and at some point I feel like it started to affect my confidence and game in a bad way. I've put in a lot of time studying and it's nice to see some results and good fortune. I'm hoping to continue that trend and take all my work and good form to the Global Poker League and SCOOP." On Thursday, Wigg goes heads-up against World Series of Poker Main Event winner Martin Jacobson in a GPL online match. Wigg is a member of the San Francisco Rush and was the team's final selection in February's draft. Jacobson is on the Montreal Nationals. Another Swede, Erik 'Kihlstrom' Olofsson, moved up 21 places to #51, his highest ranking ever, thanks to a win in a W Series event on April 3 for $18,000 and well over 400 PLB Points. That was his third largest score of 2016 and raised his career win total to 139. He's the top-ranked online poker player in the Swedish city of Uppsala. Sweden's 'Discoovery' jumped to #56 in the rankings, his best showing ever. He has seven wins since the standings were last calculated: two on PokerStars, three on Winamax, and two on PokerStars.fr. In the process, he wrapped up his first PocketFives Triple Crown. He's the 15th-ranked Swede. Finally this week, 'tonkaaaa' reentered the top 100 at #79, the highest top-100 debut of anyone. Since last Wednesday, he has taken down the PokerStars $55 Knockout, 888 Crocodile, and partypoker Heavyweight Weigh-In for over $13,000 total. He was ranked as high as #22 in the world four years ago. Here's this week's top 10: lena900 - 7,270 points veeea - 7,036 points C Darwin2 - 7,033 points Ariados - 6,930 points Big Huni - 6,926 points SvZff - 6,674 points MendaLerenda - 6,670 points jbrown8777 - 6,389 points eisenhower1 - 6,365 points DeathbyQuads - 6,323 points
