  1. Only one player has held the #1 spot for more weeks than Cliff 'JohnnyBax' Josephy, but while 'lena900' has had 10 turns as the #1-ranked player for 97 weeks, Josephy had one run that lasted an astonishing 74 weeks. That level of success has made Josephy a longstanding favorite of the PocketFives community and his PocketFives Legacy Award, which he won at the 2016 American Poker Awards, earned him the #7 seed in the Clubs bracket and an automatic bye into the second round. If Josephy wants to continue to add to his growing list of accolades, he'll need to survive a Clubs bracket that includes the likes of #1 seed Sebastian 'p0cket00' Sikorski, Fabrizio 'SixthSenSe19' Gonzalez, Fedor Holz, and his former protege Kevin 'BeL0WaB0Ve' Saul. Enter the #1 Number One Contest Now! p0cket00 (#1) vs StrungOut1 (#16) Sebastian 'p0cket00' Sikorski earned the #1 seed in this bracket thanks to being one of just six players to have worked their way into the #1 ranking on six different occasions. Those six reigns, turned into 28 weeks at #1 for Sikorski which, in addition to his seven Triple Crowns (good for 10th all-time), makes him one of the most accomplished players in PocketFives history. Michael 'StrungOut1' Wasserman held the #1 spot for one week in September 2015. He won two Triple Crowns before having his results no longer tracked by PocketFives. SixthSenSe19 (#2) vs Doc Sands (#15) Fabrizio 'SixthSenSe19' Gonzalez was ranked #1 on PocketFives on three separate occasions for a combined 21 weeks between October 2016 and March 2017. The Uruguayan has accumulated more than $10 million in lifetime online earnings thanks to PokerStars WCOOP and SCOOP titles as well as partypoker Powerfest wins. His path to Round 2 isn't an easy one though. David 'Doc Sands' Sands might have held the #1 ranking only one time, but his six-week reign and $3 million in online earnings, combined with his status as a popular member of PocketFives, make him a threat to advance. gboro780 (#3) vs SvZff (#14) It somehow feels like Steve 'gboro780' Gross might be a tad underrated as the #3 seed. Gross reached #1 on four separate occasions and has the fourth-longest combined time at #1 at 55 weeks. A majority of Gross' $6.2 million in lifetime earnings came before Black Friday as did his two Triple Crowns. Steven van Zadelhoff is the player standing in Gross' way of a first-round win. The Dutchman earned the #1 ranking in December 2017, just two months after he won the PokerStars WCOOP Main Event for $1.6 million. He held the top spot for a single week and has $11.4 million in earnings plus a Triple Crown to his credit. r4ndomr4gs (#4) vs aguskb (#13) Andreas 'r4ndomr4gs' Berggren is part of the army of Swedish superstars who have held the #1 spot. Berggren first took the top spot in May 2014 and held onto it for one week before losing it to fellow Swede Lukas 'lukethafluke' Berglund. He grabbed it back two weeks later for a final two weeks on top. He's also one of just 13 players with at least $14 Million in earnings. Aaron 'aguskb' Gustavson could be in line for an upset here. Gustavson spent one more week on top than Berggren over his two reigns. djk123 (#5) vs Greenstone25 (#12) With three times on top of the PocketFives Rankings and a pair of WSOP bracelets, Dan 'djk123' Kelly is one of the most decorated players in the field. He no longer plays professionally, but during his time at the top of the Rankings, Kelly was one of the most respected MTT grinders on the planet. His first-round opponent, Johannes 'Greenstone25' Korsar is another member of the Swedish contingent in the field. Korsar was #1 for three weeks in December 2019 and was only displaced by fellow Swede 'lena900'. 1_conor_b_1 (#6) vs BeL0WaB0Ve (#11) This matchup is going to be one to keep an eye on and could come down to a battle of American and British voters. Kevin 'BeL0WaB0Ve' Saul is a legendary figure to most long-time PocketFivers and his seven-week run at #1 in 2006-2007 helped solidify that position. His longtime popularity makes him a threat to upset the #6 seed, Conor '1_conor_b_1' Beresford who brings a 29 straight week reign at #1 as his leading credential. He also has $15 Million in earnings and a trophy case full of some of online poker's most prestigious hardware. Tmay420 (#8) vs CrownUpGuy (#9) Some voters may consider live poker success and that makes Fedor 'CrownUpGuy' Holz a threat to upset Tim 'Tmay420' West. Holz became #1 on three occasions, each time holding onto it for a single week. He won the 2014 PokerStars WCOOP Main Event and then went onto win more than $32 Million in live tournaments. West was #1 for seven weeks straight beginning in late 2006. He's won more than $4 Million online and nearly the same event in live events.

  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.

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.

Australia online poker player djn873was up 28 spots to settle at #53 this week, one of the biggest jumps in the top 100.

He stands at $3.6 million in online MTT winnings and was formerly ranked #1 here on PocketFives. Canada's SSSMforlife, whom we are actually interviewing while we write this article, final tabled the PokerStars Sunday Million over the weekend for $75,000 and over 500 PLB Points. The day before, he took second in the Big $109 for $17,000. Number 70 worldwide is his best ranking ever and he stands at $1.1 million in online tournament winnings.

  3. One of the biggest jumps inside the top 100 of the PocketFives Online Poker Rankingsthis week went to Ukraine's gosuoposum1, who rocketed from #49 to #25, or 24 spots. The reason was simple: a win in the PokerStars Sunday 500 for $54,000 over the weekend, which was good for 536 PLB Points. He is up to 240 wins in online MTTs and has $3.6 million in winnings. --- 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 now for a chance to win the a Dream Holiday with the Grand Poker Adventures throughout 2014! --- The top 10 worldwide largely stayed constant this week, the lone exception being the addition of Vienna's huiiiiiiiiii(pictured above) who moved up from #13 to #9. The Austrian took down the Full TiltSunday Major three days ago for $30,000 and is up to $3.4 million in winnings online. He is the #2 ranked player in the Austria poker community. It's rare to see players enter the top 100 any higher than #50 in the world, but don't tell that to UK's makkapakk, who debuted at #33. This is his all-time high mark in the Rankings and came by virtue of a win in the Sunday Million over the weekend for $191,000 officially. In terms of the PLB, his victory was good for 1,122 points and he is $52,000 away from hitting $2 million in online winnings. Italy's RoccoGe(pictured) rose 34 spots to settle at #45 this week. He won the PokerStars Sunday $100 Rebuy for $38,000 and has $1.6 million in online winnings, about one-third of which has come from PokerStars, where he plays under the handle sephirot88. He has 2,287 tracked cashes for an average of $733 apiece. He has had success in the live world as well, as RoccoGe is ranked #378 on GPI and has one World Series of Poker bracelet.

The Gothenburg resident moved up from #2 to #1 this week on the strength of a runner-up finish in the PokerStars Sunday 500 over the weekend for $44,000 and nearly 400 PLB Points. r4ndomr4gs has over $4 million in online MTT cashes, the largest of which was worth $174,000 and came via an ECOOP win in 2009. --- 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.

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. His largest score we've tracked came last December in a WCOOP Challenge win for $198,000. Latvia's sikosomatik moved up from #52 worldwide to #38, or 14 spots, after taking down the PokerStars.fr Sunday High Roller on June 8 and then finishing second in the PokerStars $215 Weekly Turbo four days ago for another $12,000. sikosomatik has $594,000 in online cashes and is the top-ranked player in Latvia.

Finally, we wanted to single out England's jenbizzle(pictured), who reached his highest position ever in the Rankings at #82.

  5. 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.

  6. Since last October, no one has been able to stay at the top of the PocketFives Online Poker Rankingsfor longer than four weeks. Sure enough, this week was no exception, as Canada's p0cket00regained the top spot worldwide, surpassing Sweden's r4ndomr4gs (pictured), who was ranked #1 for a week. --- 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! --- This is p0cket00's seventh stint at #1 and his first since 2011. He won the Sunday Big Ticket over the weekend for $25,000 and finished second in the Full Tilt Sunday Major ten days ago for $23,000. p0cket00's $7.8 million in online MTT cashes is the second largest total of anyone on PocketFives. In case you're wondering what happened to r4ndomr4gs, you'll be comforted to know that he only slid one spot and can currently be found at #2 in the world. In fact, he only trails p0cket00 by about 100 PLB Points, so we could see another changing of the guard next Wednesday when the Rankings are recalculated. Roman Romanovskyi (pictured), known on PocketFives as Romeopro, jumped from #19 to #7 this week, his highest spot ever in the Rankings. The fuel was a blockbuster Sunday that saw him win the 888 PokerWhale for $54,000, take down the PokerStars $265 NLHE Knockout for $11,000, and finish second in the Full Tilt Sunday Brawl for $14,000. We should mention, again, that all three scores came on the same day. Mark dipthrong Herm, who is second in a WSOP $1,500 NLHE Mixed-Max event with 10 players left, also found time to move up from #15 in the world to #8. The Canadian-based player final tabled the PokerStars Big $109 over the weekend for $11,000 and has 10 online MTT wins since June 11, raising his career total to 141. Herm has been a member of PocketFives since mid-2006 and his all-time high is #5, reached in 2010. Finally, Austria's 23NoraB moved up from #14 to #9, two spots off his all-time high. He won the iPoker Super Tuesday eight days ago for $9,300 and took down the PokerStars Sunday Six-Max for $22,000 on June 22. 23NoraB snagged a $4 million cash badge on June 23, one day before Romanovskyi accomplished the same feat. Here are the top 10 players in the PocketFives Rankings this week, along with the PLB score for each: 1. p0cket00- 8,163 points 2. r4ndomr4gs- 8,058 points 3. VnilaVader - 7,685 points 4. pleno1 - 7,624 points 5. lukethafluke - 7,597 points 6. TheClaimeer - 7,336 points 7. Romeopro- 7,209 points 8. dipthrong- 6,963 points 9. 23NoraB- 6,961 points 10.

  7. On Wednesday, Sweden's Andreas Berggren (pictured, image courtesy poker.se), known as r4ndomr4gsin the online poker world, became the new #1 player in the PocketFives Rankings. This is his second stint at #1 and he is fresh off final tabling the PokerStars Sunday 500 over the weekend for $44,000, which helped put him over the top. PocketFives managed to run down this top talent to talk a little poker. PocketFives: How are you feeling about being ranked #1 on PocketFives? Andreas Berggren: It feels great. It's one more thing to check off my "to do" list. It would be nice to try to keep a top 10 spot for as long as I can. PocketFives: Sweden is #2 in the PocketFives Country Poker Rankingsand Swedes own three of the top four spots worldwide. What's in the water there? Andreas Berggren: I don't know. As some Swedes have said, during the winter, it's not that nice weather outside, which leaves a bit more time for us to spend in front of the computer. Also, we are a pretty large group of players who talk a lot of poker and travel, and many of the Swedes who are now ranked high on PocketFives have been around for many years. So, there are a lot of hours they have put into their game and a lot of volume. PocketFives: Do you talk poker with some of the other higher ranked Swedes? Andreas Berggren: I talk pretty much daily to inhoo(pictured), lena900, eisenhower1, and 42ayay, mostly on Skype, but there are many more of the highly ranked Swedish players I talk to. Almost all of the Swedes on PocketFives know each other in some way, but some of them I mostly talk to during live tournaments. PocketFives: Nice job in the Sunday 500, by the way. Tell us about that win and how it went. It was missing a lot of regs, right? Andreas Berggren: The Sunday 500 isn't a tournament in which I've had many (if any) final tables in the past, so it was nice to finally do well in that one. The field probably was a bit softer and smaller in general because of the WSOP, but it is always going to have a lot of tough competition in it. The Sunday 500 starts pretty late for us too. I had to play all night and finished around 10 in the morning to get second. I usually have a bit too many MTTs running at the time it starts and that could be one reason I usually don't make it deep, besides the tougher field. PocketFives: How did you get started in poker originally? Andreas Berggren: I started out playing with friends and in poker clubs in Gothenburg. I started playing online during the "golden years of online poker." Looking back, I was really terrible at poker, but back then you could always find someone worse than you. PocketFives: Do you plan to keep playing for another decade? Andreas Berggren: I've had many ups and downs in my career and even decided to quit the game seven years ago. I started working some crappy jobs and got so sick of it, so I eventually decided to give poker another go. It was only a six-month break, but it really gave me some perspective. Right now, I'm really enjoy playing again and have no plans to quit in the next two years, but you never now what will happen. Until I figure out a better alternative, I definitely will continue. PocketFives: What do you do away from poker? Andreas Berggren: I spend most of my free time with my family. I have two kids and a wonderful girlfriend, so it's really important for me to be with them as much as I can since I put in a lot of hours of poker every week. PocketFives: What do your kids think of your poker career? Andreas Berggren: They are pretty young still at two and four, so I don't really think they've reflected too much about it. But, they get to enjoy the benefits that poker has given me money-wise, plus the fact that I'm home a lot, able to take vacations, and so on. The only part I struggle with still is when I travel and am away from them. I don't really like being away from my family for that long of a time. Check out this week's PocketFives Rankings Update. Congrats to Andreas Berggren on becoming our new #1 ranked player! Want the latest poker headlines and interviews? Follow PocketFives on Twitterand Like PocketFives on Facebook.

  8. We're seeing a dynasty of sorts at the top of the PocketFives Rankings, as for the third straight week Canada's p0cket00is #1 worldwide. Since March, we've had one player – Sheater – be ranked #1 for longer than three weeks, and no player has been #1 for longer than four weeks since last October. --- 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! --- p0cket00 could be setting himself up to be #1 for a fourth straight week come July 23, when the Rankings are recalculated, as he has a nearly 300 PLB Point lead over Sweden's r4ndomr4gs, who is #2 once again this week. p0cket00 won the Sunday Deep Ticket for $25,000 on June 29 for 353 PLB Points, but has recorded just one in the money finish since July 1. Jumping from #42 worldwide to #17 this week is Cal cal42688Anderson (pictured above), another former #1 player in the Rankings. Anderson is fresh off winning his first World Series of Poker bracelet, doing so in a $1,500 Seven Card Stud High-Low Eight or Better tournament in June. He won the PokerStars Sunday $100 Rebuy over the weekend for $37,000 officially and was quickly back to owning souls online. We can't make this stuff up. Ukraine poker player accussity(pictured) moved up to #29 this week from #52 thanks to six tracked wins since June 25. He is the #2 player in Ukraine and has $1.5 million in online MTT scores. On PokerStars, you can hunt him down under the screen name Fukuruku. Just a few days after seeing his country win the World Cup in Brazil, Germany's nilsefrose from #80 to #47 in the world. He has been on a tear so far in July, winning seven tournaments online, one for every goal Germany scored against Brazil, to bring his total to 193. He's at $2.8 million in online winnings and plays on PokerStars.fr under the screen name Pr0llhead. The highest new entrant into the top 100 in the Rankings is Hungary's blackDonii, who can be found at #88, his highest position ever.
