  1. Every week The PocketFives Milestone Report looks at the online poker players who are achieving career-best achievement or reaching new heights in the rankings Roman 'Romeopro' Romanovsky Surpasses $8 Million in Earnings Over the last few months, Ukrainian poker pro Roman 'Romeopro' Romanovsky has been on a bit of a roll. He won the 888poker XL Eclipse High Roller in September. He finished third in the partypoker Powerfest High Roller and then 12th in the Powerfest Championship event. Those scores earned $226,000. This past week however he finished runner-up in the partypoker High Roller for $11,371.72. That score, while not the first place prize he was no doubt seeking, was enough to push Romanovsky past the $8 million earnings mark. He is the 20th player to reach that milestone and the only Urkainian player to do so. Romanovsky remains the #1-ranked player in the Ukraine. New Jersey's Fred 'BiggDaddy' Ferrell Cracks $1M Garden State Winnings Fred 'BiggDaddy' Ferrell, a mainstay in the New Jersey Rankings Top 10, is now one of the few players from the Garden State to have reached $1 million in lifetime earnings on regulated sites. Ferrell got into the seven-figure club thanks to a PokerStars Super Tuesday win on October 17. That win earned him $4,963. Pedro 'PaDiLhA SP' Padilha Cracks Top 25 for First Time Anybody who has closely followed the PocketFives Rankings for the past few years knows that players from two countries have dominated; Sweden and Brazil. While Swedish players have a stranglehold on the top 10 right now, one Brazilian seems to be working his way up the rankings quickly. Pedro 'PaDiLhA SP' Padilha went from #27 to #22 in the world last week. Padilha recently won the partypoker High Roller for $23,793 and 352.14 points. This comes less than a month after his fourth place finish in the partypoker Powerfest Championship Event for $453,150 and 475.17 points. Padilha is the #2-ranked player in Brazil, behind only Joao 'joaosimaobh' Simao. There are a total of 15 other Brazilian players ranked inside the top 100 worldwide. There were seven other players to reach career-high marks this week. rolandbauer from #31 to #30 davaman from #42 to #40 Bernardo Rocha from #154 to #49 Mikensonas from #55 to #53 heyalisson from #60 to #54 tiarc from #65 to #61 nsmirnov from #70 to #69
  2. [caption width="640"] XL Eclipse unleashed the first of the High Roller contests on Tuesday[/caption] One of the most anticipated tournaments on the 888poker XL Eclipse schedule was Event #36, the $2100 buy-in, $500,000 Guaranteed High Roller. That, along with its $215 Mini High Roller and the nine additional contests that took place Tuesday meant that there was $950,000 in guaranteed money up for grabs. In what has been a rarity during XL Eclipse, as most tournaments have been crushing their guarantees, there was a little extra value to be had in both of the day’s big buy-in events. In Event #36 ($2100 $500,000 High Roller) and Event #37 ($215 $200,000 Mini High Roller) there was a little bit of overlay, providing players fewer runners to have to defeat in order to get to the big money. And there was big money to be had. In Event #36, XL Eclipse crowned it’s first two-time winner when the #1-ranked Ukranian professional, Roman ‘Romeopro33’ Romanovsky, topped the stacked High Roller event for his second win and the first six-figure score of the series. Romanovsky, fresh off his victory over Parker ‘tonkaaaa’ Talbot yesterday, defeated Laszlo ‘lacibaby64’ Bujtas for the $107,500 prize. Runner-up Bujtas grabbed $77,500 as a consolation. Malta’s Pim ‘SuprNintend0’ de Goede emerged victorious in the second largest tournament of the day. Event #37 ($215 $200,000 Mini High Roller) saw 658 runners take their shot, but only de Goede survived, banking a healthy $37,500 score for his victory. Brazil’s Pedro ‘gusma’ Madeira also added to his already impressive $3 million+ lifetime earnings total with a victory in Event #39 ($109 $15,000 Tornado) and he was joined by fellow PocketFivers Christian ‘progree69’ Sampaoli and ‘sheikkkeri’ who also ended up with victories on Day 3 of the series.

  3. Make it a month for the #1 ranked player in the world, ‘C Darwin2’. The Swedish superstar continues his vice-like grip atop the PocketFives Worldwide Rankings, holding a 1500 PLB point lead over the next closest player. His continued success presents a gap that would be extremely difficult to bridge in a single week and makes it look like the reigning crusher may very well not only start February in the same spot, but stay put for weeks to come. However, there is a new #2 in the world. Just last week in this column it was pointed out that the 800 point gap between ‘C Darwin2’s countryman, ’lena900’, and Steven ’SvZff’ van Zadelhoff was huge…but not insurmountable. Well, ‘lena900’ had himself a monster seven days as he absolutely crushed the online tables. The Swede had two massive results in 888poker’s XL Blizzard events. He ended up taking third in the $200,000 Tune Up for $19,858 and the very same day, a runner-up finish in the $200,000 Whale for $32,000. Still, in same session as his XL Blizzard results, he won a $100K Gtd High Roller on bwin.com for another $25,000. Not finished yet, he grinds the next day and earns a victory in partypoker's Powerfest Event #5 $100K Gtd 6-Max PLO for $26,899, his fourth five-figure score in 24 hours. ‘lena900’ climbs into the #2 spot as he cashed for over $165,000 in a week. He scored five qualifying cashes for over 1400 PLB points in what amounts to a truly incredible week for the former, and would-be future, #1 ranked player in the world. van Zadelhoff slips to #3, extending his vacation from the online tables while Andreas ‘probirs’ Nemeth maintained his #4 rankings on light volume, thanks to a final table appearance during the partypoker Powerfest Event #3. Russia’s ‘hellohellohello’ made his own major move rising from the #9 ranking to rejoining the top 5. This week saw him overtaking ‘josef_shvejk’ to claim the #1 ranking in all of Russia. He pulled in three big-time five-figure scores, including a victory in the partypoker Powerfest Event #10 for over $24,000. Sweden’s ‘Sheater’ holds fast in his #6 ranking while fellow Swede, Andreas ‘r4ndomr4gs’ Berggren slipped two spots to #7. This pair of countrymen have been attached at the hip in the rankings for multiple weeks, this merely reverses the order the pair had found themselves in. Russia's 'josef_shvejk' slipped down to #8 despite a runner-up finish in the PokerStars $109 Bounty Builder for $13,912 and 265.55 PLB points. partypoker ambassador Joao 'joaosimaobh' Simao battled his way back into the top 10 this week. Since late last year, after taking some time off, Simao has been slowly drifting down the rankings. Well, the week, the Brazilian was back on the grind and posting a host of results that helped him skyrocket from #16 back to #9. He posted six qualifying cashes, spearheaded by his victory in the partypoker Powerfest Event #13 for over $16,000 and 267.58 points. The UK's Conor '1_conor_b_1' Beresford slips two spots but extends his stay in the top 10 this week. Other notable moves in the top 25 include Roman 'Romeopro' Romanovsky moving 10 spots from #25 to #15. The #1 ranked player from the Ukraine received a massive point boost when he won the PokerStars Sunday 500 for over $37,000. Another rise in the rankings is Gary 'quiditbear' Hasson who is making is debut in the top 25 at 23, a career-high ranking for the Belgian grinder. Germany's 'nilsef' re-enters the top 25 this week at #23, while a pair of Swedish players, 'DeathbyQuads' (#28) and 'inhoo' (#31) fall out of top 25.

  4. It should be no surprise that Sweden’s #1-ranked player is also, still, the #1-ranked player in the world. ‘C Darwin2’ may have slipped a little in the PLB points, but still holds a commanding point lead over #2-ranked Steven ‘SvZff’ van Zadelhoff to remain the only #1 player that 2018 has known. It was a low volume week for ‘C Darwin2’ as the superstar only recorded nine total cashes, none of which qualified to add to his PLB point total. With aging results being a factor, ‘C Darwin2’ slipped back to under 11,000 total points, currently sitting with 10,665. Still, the total is more than enough to fend off any would-be challengers to his current run as #1 as he has an over 1300 point buffer between himself and van Zadelhoff. For his part, van Zadelhoff has even fewer results than ‘C Darwin2’ as the Malta pro seemingly didn’t even click open an online poker client this week having not recorded a result since January 11. This leaves the door open for Sweden’s ‘lena900’ to make his move up the ladder. ‘lena900’ has been holding down the #3 spot for weeks now. He was never in too much danger of slipping down the leaderboard and there has been a persistent gap keeping him from catching van Zadelhoff. This week, with van Zadelhoff’s absence, ‘lena900’ gained some ground when he took third place in the partypoker Super High Roller for $20,891 and over 200 PLB points. The chasm is now just under 800 points, which is still significant but not insurmountable should a gifted player like ‘lena900’ have a week like Andres ‘probirs’ Nemeth had two weeks ago. ‘Hungary’s Nemeth rocketed eight spots two weeks ago from #12 to #4 and this week he held his ground. Continuing to add on to his recent bout of run good, Nemeth scored a pair of qualifying cashes on January 14. The first was a runner-up performance in the PokerStars Bounty Builder for $13,717 and then he scored another second place finish in the partypoker Super High Roller for an additional $33,430. With there being no shifts in the top 4, Swedish countrymen Andreas ‘r4ndomr4gs’ Beggren (#5) and ‘Sheater’ (#6) once again climb up a spot in tandem. Both former #1-ranked players rise one rung in the top 10 this week. Russia’s ‘josef_shvejk’ falls into the #7 ranking while Conor ‘1_conor_b_1’ Beresford makes yet another push into the top 10, ascending to the #8 spot. Beresford scored three qualifying cashes this week, two of which were outright victories. The UK pro took down the bwin.com Eliminator Warm Up for $5,540 and days later followed it up with a victory in the PokerStars $55 Daily Marathon for $8,286. Russian countrymen ‘hellohellohello’ (#9) and ‘veeea’ (#10) complete the top 10. Argentina’s Ramiro ‘rayastar’ Petrone made the largest leap of the week jumping from #25 to #13, an all-time high ranking for him. The move comes thanks to a trio of qualifying cashes, topped by his runner-up finish in the PokerStars $215 Monday 6-max for nearly $15,000 and over 232 PLB points. This week also saw some notable names rejoining the ranks of the top 25 as Brazil’s Pedro ‘PaDiLhA SP’ Padilha (#22), Sweden’s ‘inhoo’ (#24) and Ukraine’s Roman ‘Romeopro33’ Romanovsky (#25) all rose in the rankings this week.

  5. The was very little movement in the PocketFives.com Worldwide top 10 this week. Nine of the ten players remain the same and seven of the ten players held fast in their position. Still, with a commanding lead, Sweden’s ‘C Darwin2’ maintains his reign at the world’s #1. He had a massive week with three five-figure scores including a fourth-place finish in the PokerStars Sunday High Roller for over $21,000, a win in the 888poker Volcano for over $17,000 and another final table appearance in the PokerStars Turbo Series Event #22, cashing for over $24,000. As a result, ‘C Darwin2’ joined some of his fellow Swedes in surpassing the $8 million in lifetime earnings mark while maintaining more than 10,000 PLB points. The #2 ranked player, ‘lena900’ has done something that no player has been able to do for weeks upon weeks - come within 1000 PLB points of ‘C Darwin2’. ‘lena900’ finished in sixth-place in Event #3 of the PokerStars Turbo Series for $16,726 and 276.66 PLB points. This score, with a combination of aging results, puts ‘lena900’ roughly 900 points behind the leader and with the PokerStars Turbo Series slated to continue through March 4, there will be ample opportunity for everyone in the top 10 to collect big time scores. Andreas ‘probirs’ Nemeth, like everyone in the top 6, holds his position at #3. His PLB score slipped considerably this week as he hasn’t fired up the online client since February 11. He holds a 112 PLB point lead over the #4 ranked Steven ‘SvZff’ van Zadelhoff, which is very tenuous because…he’s back! After a month-long hiatus, Malta's former #1 ranked player in the world van Zadelhoff was seen back on the online grind this week. Well, it wasn’t a grind exactly as he recorded a total of only eight cashes and none of them actually qualified for PLB points. He did, however, cash in three of the PokerStars Turbo Series events and, in total, pulled in roughly $5,700. Should he opt to get back to playing a full schedule, he could be in for another run at the top spot in the next few weeks. A big-time score helped #5 ranked ‘hellohellohello’ add to his total PLB score. Russia’s #1 online player won the bwin.com Sunday Major High Roller for $50,845 and 447.21 PLB points. That puts him a scant 43 points behind van Zadelhoff and in position to make a major move should he find the winner’s circle again. Another player poised to make a move is Roman ‘Romeopro’ Romanovsky who holds on to the #6 spot. ‘Romeopro’ also took down a tournament on bwin.com, banking over $26,000 for his win in a Sunday Major High Roller. His PLB total puts him right in the thick of the middle of the top 10, only roughly 300 points behind the third-ranked Nemeth. Ramiro ‘rayastar’ Petrone climbs the ranks again this week, touching a new career high of #7. The pro from Buenos Aires added a pair of PLB qualifying scores to his total including a runner-up finish in the PokerStars Big $215 on February 20 for over $6,000. In order for Petone to move up, ‘European’ had to move down. Even though he slipped to the #8 rank this week, he still had a very lucrative week. ‘European’ was the winner of the Event #26 of the PokerStars Turbo Series for over $58,000. It was a really light week for Team partypoker member Patrick ‘pleno1’ Leonard, who maintains his #9 ranking this week. Only six total cashes on Sunda, February 18 added to his bankroll but none of them added to his PLB score. Finally, Sweden’s ’Sheater’ rejoins the top 10 this week. He put in a deep grind this week, seemingly playing everything he could and getting rewarded by outright winning Event #12 of the PokerStard Turbo Series for $49,217 and a healthy 560.58 PLB points. The score puts him back in the top 10, only 24 points behind Leonard. Other notable moves in the top 25 included Uruguay's 'kofi89' leaping into the #13 spot, a career high for him, on the back of a $179,000 score that netted him 1000.00 PLB points.

  6. Whereas last week there was a rather large shakeup in the PocketFives Worldwide Top 10, this week the majority of the names in the upper echelon rankings remain the same. The entire top 5 remains exactly the same and that means that, once again, the superstar Swede ‘C Darwin2’ is the #1 ranked online player in the world. ‘C Darwin2’ still maintains a larger than 1000 PLB point lead over the next nearest player and added to his point total with a victory in the partypoker High Roller on February 13 for over $11,000. He’s less than $60,000 away from surpassing $8 million in lifetime cashes. While ‘C Darwin2’ is poised to make a major milestone, the #2 ranked player in the world ‘lena900’ actually did eclipse a massive money marker this week. Roughly three months after he earned the $8 million lifetimes earnings badge, the Swedish grinder now soars past $9 million in earnings. He put together a solid week, including a pair of qualified PLB finishes that, in total, brought him over $20,000 in earnings and over 388 PLB points to help him keep pace with his #1 ranked countryman. Hungary’s #1 ranked player holds fast at #3 in the world this week. Andreas ‘probirs’ Nemeth, for the second week in a row, dropped in overall volume, recording a single cash for the entire week. His previous scores helped hold him in place, even though he lost some ground in total PLB points. Also holding firm are the #4 and #5 ranked online pros. Nothing new on the Steven ‘SvZff’ van Zadelhoff (#4) front as he continues his online poker hiatus and, as his scores age, his total PLB points continue to slip. ‘hellohellohello’ from Russia (#5) marks four weeks in the top 5 and he too played a light schedule this week, not recording a cash later than February 11, none of which qualified to be added to his PLB score. Roman ‘Romeopro’ Romanovsky falls upwards to the #6 spot this week. The Ukraine pro had a fantastic week two weeks ago, but like many in the top 10, failed to make any progress this week due to light volume. He benefitted from large PLB accumulations that have yet to age, allowing him to maintain his PLB base while others fell. One of those that did slip, despite putting together a solid week, was last week’s major mover ‘European’. The pro from Finland, ranked # 7 this week, had one of the largest scores within the top 10 this week when he scored a victory in the partypoker $100K Sunday Major for $46,418 and over 415 PLB points. Ramiro ‘rayastar’ Petrone continues to impress as he climbs the Worldwide Rankings yet again this week to a career-high rank of #8. The Argentinian collected a pair of qualified PLB scores, including a runner-up finish in the PokerStars Bounty Builder for $13,812 and over 212 PLB points. Along with ‘lena900’, expect to see Petrone in this week’s Milestones column having rocketed past $3 million in lifetime earnings with that very score. Patrick ‘pleno1’ Leonard slips one spot to #9 this week without any online poker results to speak of. It’s completely understandable as the partypoker ambassador has been in attendance at the partypoker MILLIONS Germany festival which wraps up this week at King’s Casino in Rozvadov. Wrapping up the top 10 this week is the UK’s Conor ‘1_conor_b_1’ Beresford. Beresford rejoins the top 10 on the back of a first-place finish in the PokerStars Sunday 500 for 442.72 PLB points and a bankroll boost of over $35,000. Other notable moves within the top 25 include former #1 ranked player Sebastian 'p0cket00' Sikorski (#27) rejoining the ranks of the top 25 while both Gary 'quiditbear' Hasson (#22) and 'Flat' (#23) hit new career-high rankings within the top 25.

  7. New faces join the PocketFives Worldwide top 10 this week after massive scores in partypoker’s Powerfest continues to help some of the best in the world accumulate points. One thing that hasn’t changed though is ‘C Darwin2’s reign as the #1 online player in the world. The Swede still commands a lead of over 1000 PLB points over his would-be usurpers and remains the only player in the land with over 10,000 PLB points. Unlike last week, ’C Darwin2’ padded his PLB point lead with a trio of PLB qualifying scores, punctuated by his runner-up finish in the PokerStars Sunday Warm-Up for nearly $40,000 and just over 400 PLB points. Rising to the #2 spot for the second time in three weeks is ‘C Darwin2’s countryman, ‘lena900’. The tournament specialist is back to being the main challenger to dethrone ‘CD2’ by racking up a number of qualified PLB scores totaling more than 1000 points. In addition to all those PLB points, ‘lena900’ banked roughly $140,000 thanks to a pair of scores of over $30,000 each. After this week he's now only $43,000 away from $9 million in lifetime earnings. Amazingly, he breached the $8 million mark less than three months ago. Last week’s #2, Andreas ‘probirs’ Nemeth, drops to #3 this week. He trails ‘lena900’ by only 126 PLB points and after his mammoth week last week, he also dropped down in volume. The Hungarian only registered eight total cashes in the past seven days, but two of them were good enough to help his PLB score. Speaking of light volume, superstar online grinder, and #4 in the rankings this week, Steven ‘SvZff’ van Zadelhoff is still on an online poker hiatus. Records will show that he has not cashed in an online tournament in a month. His low output is largely due to him being in attendance at the Aussie Millions where, unfortunately, it is no longer legal to fire up an online poker client and play. ‘hellohellohello’ maintains his status as a top 5 player in the world for the third week in a row. The Russian didn’t have a hefty online schedule and actually did not record any qualified PLB cashes this week, however, his previous scores were enough to keep him right where he is. Unlike last week though, where he had a roughly 500 point PLB lead over the #6 ranked player, the field is now right on his heels with a number of players looking to break into the top 5. The latest player looking to make a big move made the largest leap of any player in the top 10. ‘European’ crashed the top 10 party after a humungous week that helped him skyrocket from #34 last week to #6 this week. His rapid rise was thanks to the large prize pools in partypoker’s Powerfest and his massive success in them in the middle of this week. ‘European’ raked in three five-figure scores for a total of over $148,000. The top score was his win in Powerfest Event #46-M for $86,000 and over 700 PLB points. His surge puts him right in the thick of the top 10, trailing ‘hellohellohello’ by only 164 points. Ukraine’s Roman ‘Romeopro’ Romanovsky holds down the #7 spot again this week. He finished the week with two-thirds of a PocketFives Triple Crown taking down the 888poker Whale for $34,375 on February 4 and then two days later finishing in first in a PokerStars $109 tournament. Romanovsky also scored big during Powerfest with a fourth-place finish in Event #45-H for over $34,000. partypoker ambassador Patrick ‘pleno1’ Leonard jettisoned into the top 10 as well this week. Rising seven places to the #8 spot, the former worldwide #1 ranked player crushed one of the largest tournaments on his home turf when he won Powerfest Event #46-H $1M Gtd. Leonard won $207,978 and over 1000 PLB points for the big-time victory. In addition to the win, the UK’s #1-ranked player also picked up four additional qualifying PLB scores to amass 1725.09 points for the week. Fellow Team partypoker pro Joao ‘joaosimoabh’ Simoa slips three spots to #9 this week. The Brazilian’s week peaked with a final table finish during Powerfest Event #48-H for $13,860. Argentinan superstar Ramiro ‘rayastar’ Petrone continues his climb into the ranks of the elite, entering the top 10 for the very first time in his career. He took down the aforementioned Powerfest Event #48-H for $195,720, a career-high score for him, and 1024.70 PLB points. The six-figure win all but assures him a mention in next week’s Milestones column as he currently sits less than $5,000 from surpassing $3 million in lifetime earnings. Other notable moves in the top 25 include 'Sheater', Andreas 'r4andomr4gs' Berggren and 'josef_shvejk' all falling out of the top 10. Sweden's 'Ariados' climbed back into the top 25, reaching all the way to #13 while Russia's 'NoPlanB' also comes in at #21 for the first time in 2018.

  8. Once again, the top spot in the PocketFives.com Worldwide Rankings belongs to the super Swede ‘C Darwin2’. Though he slipped just beneath the 12,000 PLB point threshold that he’d been keeping for the past couple weeks, the phenom enjoys a lead of well over 2,000 PLB points from the next closest player. ‘C Darwin2’ continues to put the pressure on those who would look to catch him with a pair of qualifying cashes this week, both resulting in five-figure scores. This included a runner-up finish in Event #131 of Winamax’s W Series for $13,553 and 193.63 PLB points. Another reoccurring theme in recent weeks has been top-tier players taking their shot at dethroning ‘C Darwin2’ and this week it’s ‘hellohellohello’s turn. The Russian has ascended to the #2 ranking for the first time in his career after going on an absolute tear on April 8. He earned over $85,000 on that day alone, the bulk of it thanks to his victory in the bwin.com Super Sunday Super High Roller where he took home $48,750 and 387.30 PLB points. He also notched another pair of qualifying cashes helping him become the latest player that could conceivably make the steep climb to the #1 perch. Last week’s #2, Andres ‘probirs’ Nemeth, drops back to the #3 ranking this week mostly due to low volume. He was unable to record any qualifying cashes and so he slips from his career-high ranking but remains a mere 188.13 points behind ‘hellohellohello’. Sweden’s ‘lena900’ also took a small step backward as he also had but a single qualifying PLB cash this week. A final table finish in the $2,100 Sunday High Roller on PokerStars resulted in a $15,592 score and 170.27 PLB points. That result also helped ‘lena900’ cross $9.5 million in lifetime earnings and with some huge online series coming up in the next month, including PokerStars SCOOP and partypoker’s POWERFEST, he may find himself a member of the prestigious $10 million club sooner than later. Rounding out the top 5 this week is ‘European’, who maintains his same ranking from last week with the help of a final table finish in the PokerStars Bigger $215 for $3,213 and 110.79 PLB points. It should be noted that like Nemeth and ‘lena900’ just ahead of him in the rankings, ‘European’ maintains a PLB score of above 9000. Any one of these elite players could find themselves in the midst of a heater and rocket up the rankings to be the next player to challenge ‘C Darwin2’. The bottom half of the top 10 saw very little movement this week with both Steven ‘SvZff’ van Zadelhoff and Ramiro ‘Ramiro’ Petrone both holding fast in their respective #6 and #7 positions. While van Zadelhoff seemed to be taking a breather, Petrone put in work and recorded three qualifying PLB cashes. The three podium finished totaled nearly $25,000 in earnings for the Argentinan and has him in position to make another run back into the top five. Roman ‘Romeopro’ Romanovsky and Conor ‘1_conor_b_1’ Beresford swapped places with Romanovsky rising to the #8 rankings and Beresford slipping to #9. Beresford didn’t have any volume to speak of this week while Romanovsky took third place in the PokerStars $530 Bounty Builder Hight Roller for over $18,000 and 233.78 PLB points, enough to help him shift up this week. Johannes ‘Greenstone25’ Korsar completes the top 10 this week. The Swedish grinder with over $11 million in lifetime earnings, joined those would take their foot off the gas this week, likely preparing for the large volume series that are right around the corner.

  9. Comin on the heels of his runner-up finish in the XL Blizzard Mini Main Event, Roman 'Romeopro' Romanovsky put together a dominant February on 888poker to be the top-earning PocketFiver on the site. It took just eight cashes for Romanovsky to rack up $71,621 in winnings. His biggest score came on February 4 when he won the $125,000 Whale for a $34,375 payday. Exactly three weeks later he finished runner-up to 'OlNKOinkOink' in the $100,000 Whale for $20,350. Proving he's not just about the big buy-in events, Romanovsky also managed to finish runner-up in the $88 buy-in $15,000 Great 8 event on the final day of the month to earn f$2,864. Sweden's Johannes 'Greenstone25' Korsar had the second best month of any PocketFiver on 888poker, but still found himself almost $30,000 behind Romanovsky. His biggest score came when he won the $50,000 Volcano event on February 27 for $15,008. A little over two weeks earlier, Korsar finished fourth in the $120,000 Volcano for $12,100. Canadian Sebastian 'p0cket00' Sikorski put up more volume than Romanovsky and Korsar on his way to winning $31,465.30. Of his 10 cashes, six were of the four-figure variety. His single biggest score came from a sixth-place finish in the $120,000 Whale for $6,655. Russian 'josef_shvejk' continued to dominate online, earning $28,740.75 on 888poker. He only picked up five cashes with $15,400 of his winnings coming in the $100,000 Whale on February 24 for his biggest score. Other PocketFivers to have solid months on 888poker included Rodrigo 'sonmonedas' Perez, former #1-ranked Chris 'moorman1' Moorman, Charlie 'chaz_man_chaz' Combes, Alessandro 'JaNdRo27' Sarro and 'machiavelli3'.

  10. This week's PokerStars Sunday Million saw three players turn $215 into over $100,000 after the final four agreed to a deal. 'Rohlik2' was awarded the biggest share of the $1,276,000 prize pool and banked $121,844, but it was 'Adam4_Condor' who took the first-place glory and netted $117,195 after the deal. 'Rohlik2' eventually departed in fourth-place with 'vidi.pkr' claimed the bronze medal in third for $89,558, which left 'nielssie88' to be the final player to fall from the 6,382-entry field and claim their prize of $109,027 as runner-up. Elsewhere, 'Sentapied99' achieved quite the feat after winning the partypoker $1,050 Super Sunday Big Bounty Hunter-HR for the second week in a row. After coming through the 420-player field last week for $40,110, they this time outlasted 327 entrants to claim victory for $31,719 and the honor of defending his title. Michael 'mczhang' Zhang also had a Sunday to remember after final tabling two majors which included victory in the partypoker $2,600 SHR. Zhang took sixth-place in the PokerStars $2,100 Sunday High Roller, good for $12,195, and added another $53,662 to his bankroll after coming through the tough partypoker $2,600 SHR final table which included; Roman 'Sanitywaterline' Romanovsky, current PocketFives #1-ranked 'HellmuthTheGr8' and the winner of this tournament last week, 'BenRichards1.' Sweden's 'TanTanSWE' added another $36,910 to their already impressive $5.6m in online earnings after winning the PokerStars $530 Bounty Builder High Roller. 'TanTanSWE' came through the 896-player field to record the victory after seeing out 'ale6ka' into second-place, who took away $27,055. After well-known MTT player 'Bencb789' took down the PokerStars $215 Sunday Warm-Up last week, it was 'losos007' who this week felt that winning feeling after outlasting the 1,304 entrants to take the title and the first-place prize of $40,653. 'Alexxxd3' was their adversary heads-up but they could not go the distance and claimed $29,501 for second-place. 'justwhackit' was this week's partypoker $109 Super Sunday Main Event champion after beating Brazil's Fabiano 'ChicoRaise' Kovalski heads-up. The Brazilian's silver medal reward was $23,840 with 'justwhackit' winning $33,620 after overcoming the 1,944 player field. In partypoker's $530 HR Super Sunday Main Event, it was 'lena900' who was the last player remaining after seeing off partypoker pros Dzmitry Urbanovich' and Joao Simao before defeating 'Z-ENERGIES' in a heads-up battle. It would seem the final two players agreed on a deal before playing for the added first-place prize with 'Z-ENERGIES' taking away $32,543 for second and 'lena900' awarded $35,516 for first. Over on 888poker, 65 entrants came together to do battle in the $1,050 buy-in $100,000 Gtd Whale event with 'bigblindbets' going the distance and claimed the $30,000 first-place prize. Roman 'Romeopro33' Romanovsky was the runner-up for $20,000 with Russia's 'CalmRevolver' taking $15,000 in third. 'checcmate' was able to live up to their name and beat the 377 entrants in the $215 Sunday Mega Deep to claim the first-place prize of $19,250. 'genbab10' was the unlucky player to fall at the final hurdle and took $14,250 for second-place.

  11. The first Monday of the 2018 PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker saw 12 more events wrap up with Niall 'Firaldo87' Farrell picking up a second career SCOOP title. Farrell came into Day 2 of Event #3 (High) second in chips out of the 37 remaining players and battled to be the last person standing to win the first place prize of $101,854 and add a second SCOOP title to his name after he took down Event #47 (High) back into 2016. Roman 'RomeOpro' Romanovsky took another huge step towards the $10M mark in recorded online earnings after winning his first SCOOP title in Event #2 (High). The Ukrainian is now well over the $9M threshold after coming through the 728-player field and defeating 'blikinn' heads-up to take the first-place prize of $123,935. Javier 'minusth3bear' Zarco was the biggest winner on the opening Monday after he claimed victory in Event #4 (High) for $233,909. The Spaniard eclipsed his previous best recorded online cash of $17,121 after seeing off the other 674 entrants, which included Aaron 'aaronmermel' Mermelstein, 'Calvin 'cal42688' Anderson, 'ikkedus', 'zcedrick' and Toby '810ofclubs' Lewis, who all made the final table. In the final 'High' event, 'BongBob' ($130,329), 'Shuller_A1t' ($94,792) and 'ekziter'($68,946) made up the top three places in the Six Max Pot Limit Omaha after 355 entrants paid the $2,100 buy-in to create a $710,000 prize pool. Event #4 (Medium) saw 6,916 entrants do battle in the $215 Sunday Million SCOOP Special with 'XD89lol<3' taking the majority share of the $1,383,200 prize pool. Finland's 'XD89lol<3' recorded his third six-figure online cash after banking $196,472 for defeating 'ham1l_I0n' heads-up, who took away $135,971 for second place, with Brazil's 'Eduardo850' claiming their biggest online cash to date by coming third for $94,103. Canada's 'newguy89' lost out to 'chemigue2' heads-up in Event #2 (Medium) with the players taking away $39,128 and $54,893 respectively. 'Br1ngCabbage' took the win in Event #3 (Med) to earn themselves a coveted SCOOP title as well as $65,159. In the $215 Six Max Pot Limit Omaha Event #5 (Medium), it was Brazil vs Poland for the win, with 'charlie580' beating out 'pokerqmaster' for the title and the first-place prize of $47,735.

  12. If you follow the PocketFives.com Worldwide Rankings at all in 2018 then you know the story. This week it’s more of the same as the Swedish crusher ‘C Darwin2’ continues his reign as the only player to occupy the #1 spot in all of 2018. ‘C Darwin2’ locked himself up three qualifying cashes and a pair of five-figure scores this week. But when he took first place in the PokerStars Daily 500 for $16,064 he did something less than 20 players in the history of online poker have done before. He surpassed $9 million in lifetime earnings. What is even more amazing is the speed with which he did it. He sprinted through his last million in earnings having achieved $8 million in earnings less than two months ago. He’s one of two Swedish players to eclipse that mark this week and he’s only the 18th player to ever do so. For the second week in a row Russia’s ‘hellohellohello’ holds down the #2 spot in the rankings. He does this despite putting in very low volume and not bringing in any new PLB points. Nevertheless, thanks to his massive scores the week before, his PLB score edged slightly closer to the 10,000 PLB mark. Sweden’s ‘lena900’ and Andres ‘probirs’ Nemeth swapped places in the rankings again this week. ‘lena900’, locking up the #3 rank, put together another stellar week at the tables and boosted his PLB scores with a trio of victories. This included a victory in the PokerStars $55 Sunday Marathon for $18,178 where he ended up besting PokerStars Team Online Pro Lex Veldhuis to take it down. His impressive week brought him four five-figure scores and places him just over 200 points away from re-taking the #2 spot in the rankings. Nemeth, on the other hand, continues his break from the online grind, resulting in his slipping to the #4 rank. The middle of the top 10 rankings remains the same this week as ‘European’ (#5), Steven ‘SvZff’ van Zadelhoff (#6) and Ramiro ‘Ramiro’ Petrone (#7) all hold their ground. Petrone managed the largest score of the three grinders this week when he took down the partypoker $200K Super Sunday Main Event to add over $28,000 to his bankroll. Sweden’s ‘Ariados’ jumps into the top 10 this week, coming in at #8. Earlier we had mentioned ‘C Darwin2’s $9 million achievement, well, his fellow countryman ‘Ariados’ pulled off the same feat in the same week. 'Ariados', just two days before the #1-ranked player, finished as the runner-up in the PokerStars $2,100 Sunday High Roller to earn over $33,000 and put him up over the $9 million mark, becoming the 17th player in history to do so. Then to pad his earnings, he ended up winning the PokerStars €250 Sunday High Roller for an extra $14,880 on the same day. Roman ‘Romeopro’ Romanovsky yielded one place, slipping to #9 this week and the UK's Conor '1_conor_b_1' Beresford wraps up the top 10 this week.

  13. While Sunday marked the beginning of both partypoker Powerfest and the PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker, the headlines instead went to 'Bencb789', who came second in the 888poker $100,000 Sunday Whale for $23,680 and helped 'Team BITBRYE' into an early lead against 'Team Sweden' in their six-figure prop bet.Patrick ‘pleno1’ Leonard confirmed earlier this week that he would be teaming up with RaiseYourEdge head coach 'Bencb789' to take part in a six-figure prop bet against the Swedish duo of 'Lena900' and 'C.Darwin2'. As the first day's play came to an end, it was 'Team BITB RYE' who took the advantage after 'Bencb789', playing under the alias 'f0rmEitseGal', pipped 'C.Darwin2' to second place in the 888poker Whale, after the Swede, could only manage a fourth-place finish for $12,160. https://twitter.com/raiseyouredge/status/993353498199638016 It seems this prop bet will be getting a lot of attention over the next few weeks as the four players go to battle across the all the spring online poker events. As the before mentioned PokerStars SCOOP series begun yesterday, the Sunday Million and Sunday Warm-Up are being played out as two-day tournaments and set to resume Monday at 18:00 WET. Ben 'Ben86' Tollerene and 'yongminbae' were the big winners across the completed PokerStars events yesterday after they took down the $2,100 Sunday High Roller and $530 Bounty Builder High Roller respectively. 2015 WCOOP SHR winner 'Ben86' beat 'ekziter' heads-up to claim the $54,358 first-place prize, while 'yongminbae' came through a field of 1,145 entrants and added $46,577 to their bankroll. Also, Roman 'RomeOpro' Romanovsky made the first of his two 'Sunday Major' final tables this week after finishing in fourth-place in the $2,100 Sunday High Roller for $23,926. partypoker began their latest Powerfest series with three $1m Gtd events across its opening day. 1,703 entrants went to battle in the Powerfest #04-HR $530 $1m Gtd Championship Event with 'sk2ll_m0dR' defeating New Zealand's 'hamishc2' heads-up after both players agreed to a deal. 'sk2ll_m0dR' took away $144,874, with 'hamishc2' beating his previous best recorded online cash of $10,375 by some margin after claiming $143,525. 'alex2pairs' was the winner in the Powerfest #03-SHR $5,200 $1m PKO Championship Event for $99,992 after coming through the 196 strong field. 'TorTor2012' took second-place for $72,579 with 'JohnBoy_' winning $51,737 for third. Roman 'SanityWaterline' Romanovsky appeared at his second major final table of the day in the $1,050 Powerfest #05-HR PKO $1m Gtd Championship Event and repeated his earlier fourth-place finish to win $27,272. 'MonkMode' took the victory for $85,914 after beating 'Ignent' into second-place from the 999 player field for $61,538. Sweden's 'Algorhytm' was pipped at the post in the Powerfest #04-H $109 $200k Gtd event and had to settle for the runners-up prize of $29,742. The current PocketFives world no.#7 succumbed to 'omar091365' heads-up who banked $42,038 and the title. As previously mentioned, 'bencb789' was this week's 888poker $100,000 Whale runner-up and it was 'AceSpade11' who had the honor of beating him for the first-place prize of $35,200. Last but not least, 'GangstaGo' turned $215 into $19,500 after coming through a field of 311 entrants in the 888poker Sunday Mega Deep. 'PokerJoe332' was the player to lose the heads-up clash for $14,500, with 'Flopzilla_XD' having to settle for $11,000 in third.

  14. A trio of high profile spring online poker series has wreaked havoc on the PocketFives Worldwide Top 10 Rankings. In fact, rankings of nine of the top 10 players shifted this week. The only exception…the number one spot still belongs to ‘C Darwin2'. As PokerStars’ Spring Championship of Online Poker, partypoker’s POWERFEST and 888poker’s XL Inferno provide players some of the largest prize pools of the year, online poker’s elite are on the full-time grind. The results posted by those who end up crushing the competition is enough to help them make major moves in the rankings. That said, current king of online poker ‘C Darwin2’ fended off all challengers and retained his top spot. Perhaps the most interesting part of ‘C Darwin2’s week is that his largest qualifying PLB score had nothing to do with any of the major series. His PLB point boost, to keep him as the only player propped up above 11,000 PLB points came in the May 7 edition of the PokerStars $215 Monday Six Max. He took third in that tournament for $16,888 and 240.19 points. That was good enough this week but if Roman ‘Romeopro’ Romanovsky continues on the incredible heater he has been on, next week we may see a new number one for the first time all year. Romanovsky rocketed up 10 spots to a career-high #2 ranking this week. Romanovsky accumulated three six-figure scores and an additional three five-figure scores in what must be the best week of his online poker career. He ripped off a victory in PokerStars SCOOP Event #2 (High) for $123,935, another victory in SCOOP Event #16 (High) for $138,536 and a runner-up finish in SCOOP Event #14 (High), the $25,000 NLHE High Roller for $442,299. In total, Romanovsky banked over $834,000 this week and now sits on the doorstep of the exclusive $10 million lifetime earnings club. What’s the only thing better than coming in second in the $25,000 High Roller? Andreas ‘probirs’ Nemeth was the player to best Romanovsky to take down that prestigious event. The win in SCOOP Event #14 (High) brought him $576,087 plus 1,581 PLB points, helping him climb three spots to land in the #3 ranking this week. Just like Romanovsky, the score in Event #14 represents a career-high cash for the Hungarian. In total, Nemeth accumulated over 2100 PLB points during the week, yet still sits around 1100 points behind the #1 spot. ‘hellohellohello’ may have slipped a couple spots to the #4 ranking this week but the Russian certainly held his own in terms of results. He accumulated five qualifying cashes this week and his efforts were highlighted by cashing in both of PokerStars’ SCOOP Event #14, both the High and Mid, for a total combined earnings of over $107,000. Sweden’s ‘lena900’ also took a couple steps back, slipping from #3 to # 5 this week. He finished in fourth place during SCOOP Event #14-M for just over $87,000 and 514.29 PLB points. He and ‘C Darwin2’ are partners in the high-stakes $100,000 results prop bet against Patrick ‘pleno1’ Leonard and ‘bencb789’. Hello once again to Belgium’s #1-ranked professional ‘girafganger7’ who, after reinstating his screen names, instantly appears in the top 10 at #6. The former #1-ranked player posted a runner-up finish in partypoker’s POWERFEST Event #18 for $14,895 and 258.70. Conor ‘1_conor_b_1’ Beresford jumped up into the #7 spot due to earning six qualified PLB scores including a second place finish in POWERFEST Event #2-HR for over $47,000. After Latvia's Guntis ‘lovefee’ Aleskins took down SCOOP Event #14-M for a career-high cash of just over $240,000 he bounced up into the top 10 for the first time ever. He currently sits acareer-highhigh ranking of #8. The true grinder that he is, just days after basking in a career-defining victory later he found himself playing a pair of $20-something tournaments, cashing for just under $300 for the two. The top 10 is rounded out by a pair of familiar names as Steven ’SvZff’ van Zadelhoff slipped 5 spots to #9 on light volume and Ramiro ‘Ramiro’ Petrone hits the #10 spot even after booking a victory in SCOOP Event #19-M for $57,321. While there was some major shifting within the top 10, there were no other new entries into the top 25 this week.

  15. Every week The PocketFives Milestone Report looks at the online poker players who are achieving career-best achievement or reaching new heights in the rankings. Dara O’ Kearney Earns 8th Triple Crown Longtime PocketFiver, Irish poker ambassador, and host of the popular The Chip Race podcast, Dara ‘Doke’ O’Kearney earned his eighth career PocketFives Triple Crown on May 8. The accomplishment puts him seventh all-time on career Triple Crowns. He accomplished the feat in short order in the first week of May. At first he took down the 888poker $10,000 Sunday Monsoon for $2,255 on May 6. The very next day he won Event #12-H of the partypoker POWERFEST series for $13,333. Then he completed the task with a gold medal in the PokerStars $215 Super Tuesday on May 8 for another $8,296. Three days led to three victories for O’ Kearney as he continues to rack up the accolades. Joining him in achieving Triple Crowns during the same week is Bryan ‘bparis’ Paris. Paris, who is fifth on the PocketFives all-time money list with over $10 million in lifetime earnings, earned his sixth Triple Crown on May 10. Like O’ Kearney he scored qualified victories on PokerStars, partypoker, and 888poker within a matter of four days. Hungary’s ‘flashxx’ also got in on the Triple Crown action, reaching her very first on May 11. She used victories on PokerStars, PokerStars.es, and partypoker to earn the accolade. ‘flashxx’ is currently just $6,000 shy of surpassing $300,000 in lifetime earnings. Major Money Milestones Former Worldwide #1-ranked online player Chris ‘Getting Daize’ Oliver became just the ninth player all-time to surpass $10 million in lifetime earnings. He sealed the deal with a final table appearance in Event #4-HR of partypoker’s POWERFEST that earned him over $25,000. Oliver’s storied career includes reaching the #1-ranking twice, earning a Triple Crown and becoming the 2010 Yearly PLB Champion. Now, he’s in one of the most elite clubs on PocketFives and despite everything he’s achieved, he continues the daily grind with an eye on $11 million. Andres ‘probirs’ Nemeth, the current #3-ranked player in the world, hit a major milestone of his own after passing $8 million in lifetime earnings. He flew past the mile marker with a career-high cash of over $576,000 by winning Event #14-H the $25,000 High Roller of PokerStars SCOOP series. Right behind him are a pair of longtime PocketFivers who just surpassed $7 million in lifetime earnings. Both Fabrizio ‘SixthSenSe19’ Gonzalez and Calvin ‘cal42688’ Anderson used the mammoth summer series to rack up enough earnings to push them past the $7 million. Gonzalez took second in POWERFEST Event #45-HR for $15,600 to get the job done. Anderson has been destroying the SCOOP fields highlighted by his victory in SCOOP Event #19-H for $126,659. Plenty of other big names have seen big gains recently and soared past the money markers they had been chasing. Both David ‘Bakes’ Baker, Guntis ‘lovefee’ Aleskins and partypoker ambassador Patrick ‘pleno1’ Leonard surpassed $5 million in lifetime earnings. Toronto’s Mike ‘SirWatts’ Watson, Diego ‘MrBittar’ Bittar from Brazil, Huber ‘IamSound’ Stefan from Switzerland and Russia’s ‘Flat’ (currently the #27-ranked player in the world) all joined the $4 million lifetime earnings club. ‘Romeopro’ Climbs To Career-High #2 Ranking Ten players hit career-high marks in the Worldwide Top 100 this week. Of the ten, two players soared to new heights within the top 10 including the aforementioned Guntis ‘lovefee’ Aleskins who earned the #8-ranked thanks to his performance during SCOOP Event #14-M for $240,766 and 1,181.52 PLB points. Roman ‘Romeopro’ Romanovsky had the best weekend of his career winning two SCOOP events in a single week and winning over $834,000, including a career-high cash with his runner-up finish in SCOOP Event #14-H for $442,299. His surge put him within striking distance, for the very first time, of the #1 worldwide ranking.

  16. The top-ranked player in Hungary, Andras 'probirs' Nemeth, won over $500,000 on Day 5 of the PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker and in the process prevented Roman 'RomeOpro' Romanovsky from collecting an astounding third title of the series. With the bumper buy-in Low, Medium and High Event #14 tournaments all coming to a conclusion on Thursday, the results saw 12 players collect six-figure scores, including Romanovsky who made it to heads-up play on his third bullet in the $25,000 buy-in 'High' and was looking to achieve his third win of the series after taking down Event #16 (High) the day before and Event #2 (High) on Monday. But, Nemeth was the man in his way and ultimately prevented the Ukrainian from achieving the feat to claim his own third career SCOOP title and the first-place prize of $576,087. Romanovsky received $442,299 as runner-up which left the current #12-ranked player in the world less than $200,000 away from the $10M career earnings accolade. Guntis 'poker@luffyD' Aleskins picked up his largest recorded online result to date after banking $240,765 for victory in Event #14 (Medium). Former Sunday Million runner-up Aleskins defeated 'engantil' heads-up for the win, with the latter taking away $171,625 for second place. Also on the final table was 'Lena900' who collected $87,208 in fourth-place and helped 'Team Sweden' close the gap on 'Team BITBRYE' in their much talked about six-figure series prop bet. The UK's Ben 'jenbizzle' Jones overcome Brazil's Ivanildo Limeira in Event #14 (Low) to pick up his first SCOOP title, and a career-best recorded online cash of $162,039. Jones, who is a former Super Tuesday, Sunday Warm-Up and Sunday Supersonic champion, came through the 5,700 entrants field and navigated his way to victory on a final table that also featured 2017 WCOOP Main event third-place finisher, Machadada RS, and Chester20o. Event #15 saw three six-max PLO rebuy tournaments take place with 'Maizeruba', 'igor69' and 'Tr!pleeeee' all adding SCOOP titles to their names. 'Maizeruba' won $9,872 after coming through a 3,891 player field in the 'Low' and 'igor69' was the victor in the 'Medium' for $32,858, after seeing off former Pocketfives world no.#1 'cal42688' into third place. In the 'High' 'Tr!pleeeee' took away a cool $87,042 after beating Mike 'goleafsgoeh' Leah, Jerry 'Perrymejsen' Ödeen and Adam 'adamyid' Owen on the final table. Christopher 'Apotheosis92' Kruk, who featured on the Event #16 (Medium) final table on Day 4, made another SCOOP appearance on Day 5 after collecting the silver medal in Event #13 (High) Triple Draw 2-7 for $38,850. The Canadian was beaten to the top prize of $57,720 by 'merla888' after they successfully came through the 111 player field. 'TheRabbitFR' made up for their runner-up spot in Event #10 (Medium) by going all the way in Event 13 (Medium) to win $15,480. 'TheRabbitFR' beat 'SexualDrag0n' in heads-up play, on a final table that saw Pocketfives members 'komarolo22' and 'hummylun' achieve fourth and fifth place respectively. In Event #13 (Low), 'hapsmoney' beat out 1,726 other entrants to earn the victory and $5,441. 'Flakon2010' was rewarded with $4,058.45 for second place with 'Moergi' picking up $3,022.45 in third place.

  17. It's only Day 4 of the PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker but Roman d'Rome0pro' Romanovsky has already secured his second title of the series after defeating his friend Patrick 'pads1161' Leonard heads-up in Event #16 (High). Romanovsky took down Event #2 (High) for $123,935 just days ago and repeated his triumph yesterday after Leonard, and he agreed to a chop before playing out for the title. The Ukrainian took away $135,121 for the win, and Leonard banked $109,898 to help 'TeamBITBRYE' extend their series prop bet lead over 'Team Sweden'. https://twitter.com/plenopads/status/994393136221900800 'Cem1994' was Day 4's highest earner after they became Event #11 (High) Super Tuesday champion for $183,292. 'despedespi33' took second-place for $133,081 after 1,149 entrants came together to create a $1.1M prize pool. There was a career-best online result of $66,395 for Brazil's Everton 'Bitoks' Becker after he won Event #11 (Medium) Mini-Super Tuesday. The Brazilian agreed to a deal with 'MonkeyRush88', who took away $56,503 in second after the UK's Richard 'raconteur' Gryko had departed in third-place for $35,564. Another bumper SCOOP field appeared in Event #11 (Low) as 15,003 entrants paid the $11 tournament fee to create a $147,000 prize pool. After 15,000 players had departed the field, the final three agreed to a deal. 'TazutZ' finished in third-place for $11,664, 'Chick2345' took the silver medal for $11,695, which left 'theillwill' to scoop the title alongside $14,083. 'CAZZETTEE', who narrowly missed out on the win in Monday's Event #3 (Medium) after taking second-place for $45,723, went one better in Event #10 (High) after they won the $2,100 Razz for $51,940. The final table action also saw Canada's Mike 'goleafsgoeh' Leah finish in sixth-place for $10,600 and Dzmitry 'Colisea' Urbanovich score $19,080 in fourth. 'aidanb4' took the top spot in Event #3 (Low) after coming through the 2,184 player field to win $7,426. While 'Maicoshaa', who won Event #9 (High) during last year's series, added another victory to their name, this time in Event #10 (Medium) for $17,024. Event #16 (Low) comprised of a $55 Six-Max Turbo High Roller tournament which saw 'ale6ka' come through the 5,977 field after they defeated '[Ro]Cristy' to win the $42,475 first-place. The $530 Six-Max Turbo Event #16 (Medium) was won by 'elhilario' for $75,035 after they came through a final table featuring PocketFives world no.#24 'th'Kick' and two-time PokerStars Super Tuesday champion Christopher 'Apotheosis92' Kruk.

  18. In the aftermath of the major spring tournament series, the PocketFives Worldwide Rankings had a new look and, for the first time in 2018, a new #1. This week though, it’s quite the opposite. There were very few major moves in the Worldwide top 10, with the majority of online poker’s elite holding steady in the same rankings they held last week. This includes another week at the top for the current ruler of the rankings, Sweden’s ‘lena900’. After taking a brief break at the beginning of the week, the consummate grinder ‘lena900’ (12,657 PLB points) got back on the grind. While he was not able to pick up any qualifying PLB cashes this week, he did score a third-place finish in the May 31 edition of the $109 Mini Thursday Thrill on PokerStars for over $6,700. After his enviable SCOOP and POWERFEST showings though, 'lena900's PLB score still sat well above those looking to catch him, resting at 12,657 this week. Trailing ‘lena900’ is his countryman and one time (and future?) king ‘C Darwin2’ (11,362). Like ‘lena900’ he was back at it this week, but unable to secure a qualifying cash. ‘C Darwin2’ was able to score a pair of podium finishes including a third-place showing in the May 27 edition of PokerStars’ Bigger $109 for $12,451. Putting in very light volume this week was Ukraine’s Roman ‘Romeropro’ Romanovsky (10,592). Romanovsky registered a total of five cashes for roughly $8,500. He continues his march toward $10 million in lifetime earnings, needing just under $70,000 to join the elite club. ‘hellohellohello’ (10,394) maintains his #4 ranking despite not even firing up the online poker client this week. While #5-ranked Andres ‘probirs’ Nemeth (10,298) has a similar idea, only notching three total results for just over $7,000, none of which helped his PLB score. Montreal, Canada’s ‘GINS FINEST’ (9,838) picked up a victory in the May 31 PokerStars Bounty Builder for $7,870 in route to maintaining his career-high #6 spot. Right behind him, again claiming the #7 ranking this week, is Argentinas #1-ranked player Ramiro ‘Ramiro’ Petrone (9,463) who, like many on this list, put in light volume. The first major change to the top 10 comes with the resurgence of Brazilian pro Joao ‘joaosimaobh’ Simao (9,302). Simao continued to move forward this week, picking up two big-time qualifying cashes. The first, a final table finish at the partypoker Super Sunday 1K Deepstack High Roller brought Simao $16,770 and 201.83 PLB points. Then, the very next day, he took down the partypoker Big Bounty Hunter High Roller for another $42,712 and 487.65 PLB points. The results not only propel him five spots on the rankings and back into the top 10, but they put Simao in a great state of mind should he makes his way to the World Series of Poker. The third Swedish player in the top 10, ‘Ariados’ (9,041), slipped to the #9 spot this week. He helped himself remain in the top 10 thanks to his bronze medal finish in the May 27 $2,100 Sunday High Roller on PokerStars for just under $30,000 and 248.08 PLB points. Finally, Pedro ’PaDiLhA SP’ Padilha (8,983) kept his #10 spot this week despite not accumulating any cashes in the period. Other notable moves in the top 25 include Michael 'mczhang' Chi Zhang leaping seven spots to a career-high ranking in the #20 spot. Additionally, 'Sheater' rises one spot to round out the list at #25.

  19. There's not much movement in the PocketFives Worldwide Top 10 this week, as eight of the ten spots held steadfast from last week. The difference this week is it seems that the top tier players are slowly coming back to the tables after their post-spring series breaks. Sweden’s ‘lena900’ continues to top the rankings for the fourth week in a row. The powerhouse put in a good deal of volume and scored a pair of PLB qualifying cashes to solidify his position for at least one more week. His week was highlighted by a runner-up finish in the bwin.com KO Series Event #8. He earned just over $10,000 for the finish and tacked on another 208.63 in PLB points. ‘lena900’ also earned a second five-figure score this week in his final table appearance in Event #13 of the same series for $12,671 and 194.66 PLB points. It is very likely that the Swede will surpass $11 million in lifetime earnings in the next 24 hours as he sits just under $1,500 from that major milestone. The #2-ranked ’C Darwin2’ made a hard charge at the top spot this week, having himself a solid week at the tables. He registered four qualifying PLB scores including an outright win in the Winamax Mini Las Vegas Highroller for $46,404 and 414.57. In total, ‘C Darwin2’ accumulated over 1047 PLB points, putting him in position to potentially catch his countryman. Roman ‘Romeopro’ Romanovsky didn’t slip in the rankings, remaining in the #3 spot once again. He also didn’t get in on any action. Romanovsky did not register a score this week, having it only slightly affect his PLB score. Russia’s ‘hellohellohello’ had a similar idea and kept his distance from the online tables. The #4-ranked player in the world only recorded two results this week. They totaled roughly $2,500 in total cashes and no PLB points. While he didn’t give up too much ground, he didn’t gain any this week either. Andres ‘probirs’ Nemeth dabbled a little more than last week but not much more. The fifth-ranked player did hop into a couple tournaments of partypoker’s KO Series. In Event #2 he made a run to the final three tables, collecting a cash of $3,203 for his 23rd place finish. He picked up 107.76 PLB points to go along with it, however, his total output for the week was but four total cashes. ‘GINS FINEST’ from Canada continued to cash in on his current heater. He claimed victory in the PokerStars $2,100 Sunday High Roller for $49,470 and a PLB boosting 464.76 points. His recent results have deemed him as Canada’s #1-ranked player, #6 in the world and on a crash course with $5 million in lifetime earnings. The #7- ranked Ramiro ‘Ramiro’ Petrone put together a nice week this week and scored a pair of five-figure cashes. Both came on June 3. The first was in the PokerStars $2,100 Sunday High Roller, winning him $37,250 and 306.63 PLB points. Then, later that same day, he played on partypoker and, again taking second, he banked another $30,636 in the Super Sunday 1K. Joao ‘joaosimaobh’ Simao has yet to make an appearance at the World Series of Poker, instead continuing to grind online. He picked up 121.50 PLB points in a final table appearance of the partypoker Super Sunday High Roller. He earned $7,244 for that score and it helped him maintain his #8-ranking. The only change in the top 10 rankings this week comes at the bottom where Pedro ‘PaDiLhA SP’ Padilha used a pair of bronze medal finishes on partypoker to overtake the #9-ranked spot once held by Sweden’s ‘Ariados’. ‘Ariados’ slips back to the #10 spot despite picking up a pair of qualifying cashes himself. Other moves in the top 25 include ‘European’ rejoining the top 25, climbing from #28 to #21 this week. Additionally, Johannes ‘Greenstone25’ Korsar surged back to #24, while his fellow Swede ‘Sheater’ departs the top 25, slipping to #26.

  21. The long reign of 'C Darwin2' is over. For the first time in 2018, a new name sits atop the PocketFives Rankings and it took a schedule packed with PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker and partypoker Powerfest events to make it happen. Fellow Swede 'lena900' picked up two SCOOP titles and a Powerfest victory plus three other qualifying cashes to move from #5 to #1. All told, 'lena900' picked up an astonishing 3,375.86 points and $628,508 in those six events. The three victories came in Powerfest #53 ($10,300 Super High Roller NLHE), SCOOP #24-High ($530 NLHE w/rebuys) and SCOOP #39-High ($1,050 NLO8). 'C Darwin2' didn't fall far though. The Swede, who held the #1 spot for the last 20 weeks, wound up at #2 thanks in large part to the massive lead he had built up and the four qualifying cashes he picked up over the last week, adding 979.94 points to his total. While 'lena900' has won multiple titles during POWERSCOOP, 'C Darwin2' failed to win in either of those series over the last week. He did pick up a win in the PokerStars Daily 500 on May 12. Andres 'probirs' Nemeth held on to the #3 spot by adding 917.63 points to his total from two Powerfest cashes and one SCOOP cash. Nemeth now sits 852.4 points behind 'C Darwin2' but just 88.99 ahead of his next closest competitor, Roman 'Romeopro' Romanovsky. Romanovsky, who won two SCOOP titles two weeks ago, picked up just two qualifying cashes for just 311.75 points this past week and fell from #2 to #4. Russia's 'hellohellohello' stayed in the top five, but dropped from #5 to #4. He picked up just 685.59 points from three qualifying cashes and is one of five players with a PLB points total of 10,000 or more. Other big movers this week include 'GINS FINEST' (#17 to #8), Pedro ‘PaDiLhA SP’ Padilha (#15 to #12) and Connor ‘blanconegro’ Drinan (#24 to #17). The biggest jump inside the Top 25 though comes from 'Dattebayo'. The Austrian moved all the way from #47 to #25 thanks to an astonishing 11 qualifying cashes. The Austrian added 2,161.54 points to his total with 975.52 of those coming from a pair of Powerfest wins on May 12.

  22. It’s yet another summer week without much movement in the PocketFives Worldwide Top 10 as Sweden’s ‘lena900’ continues to ride the wave he had been on for the past two months, retaining the #1 spot. ‘lena900’ did not have a heavy volume week this week, especially for him, but he did manage to book a five-figure score by taking third place in the Super Sunday High Roller on partypoker for $13,050. Even though he wasn’t able to add to his overall PLB score this week, he still maintained a massive lead over his #2-ranked countryman, ‘C Darwin2’. Like ‘lena900’, ‘C Darwin2’ wasn’t able to increase his overall PLB score this week, falling almost 2000 points behind the #1 spot. He did continue to add to his over $9.7 million in lifetime earnings by cashing for over $27,000 this week. At his formidable pace, he’s very likely to join the elite $10 million lifetime club in the second half of 2018. Also grinding his way to $10 million lifetime earnings is Ukraine’s #3-ranked Roman ‘Romeopro’ Romanovsky. While ‘Romeopro’ did only secure five total cashes this week, did manage to pick up 128.33 PLB points through his final table finish in the $2,100 Sunday High Roller on PokerStars. Russia’s ‘hellohellohello’ maintained the #4 spot once again, and picked up a number of big-time cashes in the process. First up, he won the June 24 edition of the Super Sunday High Roller on bwin.com for $32,625 and 269.26 PLB points. Then later in the wee,k he booked another win in the PokerStars $530 Bounty Builder High Roller for $13,424 and an additional 265.52 PLB points. His nice uptick in points has him sitting less than 100 PLB points behind ‘Romeopro’. Hungary’s Andres ‘probirs’ Nemeth once again rounds out the top 5. He maintains his spot moreso because it’s the doldrums of summer than through any results as the grinder only managed to register two total cashes for just over $5,000 and zero PLB points. Ramiro ‘Ramiro’ Petrone checks in at #6, Canada’s ‘GINS FINEST’ takes #7 and ‘Ariados’ from Sweden climbs one spot to #8. Rejoining the top 10 this week is partypoker ambassador Patrick ‘pleno1’ Leonard. He didn’t spend much time online, but through a reduction of PLB scores from a pair of Brazilians, ‘PaDiLhA SP’ and ‘joaosimaobh’ (who has been spotted in Las Vegas at the World Series of Poker), he fell upwards into the top 10. Michael ‘mczhang’ Zhang wrapped up the week at #10, a career-high ranking for the Brit, despite not firing up his online client all week. Other notable moves in the top 25 include a debut from Ukraine's 'Palyaaa', who climbed to the #23 ranking. He achieved the career-high ranking on the back of three PLB qualifying cashes, including an outright win in the PokerStars $530 Bounty Builder for over $13,000 and 264.58 PLB points. For the first time in over a year, former #1-ranked player and PokerStars WCOOP Champion Steven 'SvZff' van Zadelhoff has fallen outside of the top 25.

  23. Stability reigns at the top of the PocketFives Rankings this week. The top five players in the world stayed the same as last week with Sweden's 'lena900' holding on to the #1 spot for the fifth consecutive week. 'Lena900' managed to hold on to the top spot despite not picking up a single qualifying cash. In fact, he cashed just 15 times this past week, with the biggest coming via a fourth-place finish in the PokerStars Sunday High Roller which earned him $14,774. Fellow Swede 'C Darwin2' finished fourth in that same event for $25,812 and 239.7 points. That was his only qualifying cash of the week. Roman 'Romeopro' Romanovsky is almost a month out from his last online cash. His last tracked result came on May 28. Russia's 'hellohellohello' is in a very similar boat. He picked up a single cash, finishing 14th in the partypoker Big Bounty Hunter event for $1,345 but it wasn't deep enough to add to his PLB points total. Andres 'probirs' Nemeth joins the chorus of players not picking up qualifying cashes this past week. The first signs of movement inside the top 10 of the Rankings saw Ramiro 'Ramiro' Petrone and 'GINS FINEST' swap the #6 and #7 positions. Brazil's Pedro 'PaDiLhA SP' Padilha moved up to #8 from #11 and is now the top-ranked player in his home country. Sweden's 'Ariados' jumped from #10 to #9. The only new face in the Top 25 wasn't much of a new face at all. Jonatan 'Pot4teUS' Hellman, who has been as high as #4, moved from #29 to #25 this week after runner-up finishes in both the partypoker Big Bounty High Roller and the PokerStars Hot $215 for 415.61 points.

  24. 'BalticMoose' took down the PokerStars $109 Sunday Million for $104,126, just 14 months after falling at the final hurdle. Back in January 2018, the Lithuanian player achieved second place in the original format Sunday Million, but this time around the glory was secured. 'vcezar' finished third in the 10,469 field for $56,518, and with two players remaining a money-deal was agreed. The UK's Charlie 'JIZJOINT' Combes was the final player to hit the virtual rail but banked $83,813 for his efforts as 'BalticMoose' got his elusive gold medal. The PokerStars $215 Sunday Warm-Up plaudits went to 'Matze 90451' after coming through an 809 player field. UK pro Tom 'Jabracada' Hall navigated his way to the final table and ultimately took away $4,342 in seventh place. 'Ambri 81' exited in third place for $15,658, which left 'Matze 90451' and former Sunday Million runner-up 'jpous' to agree to a deal. Switzerland's 'jpous' was then once again unable to take the top spot and departed as runner-up for $24,301, as 'Matze 90451' banked $27,007. 'anteen' got the better of 'Negriin' heads-up to win the PokerStars $2,100 Sunday High Roller. Canada's Kristen 'krissb24' Bicknell just missed on a top three finish after she exited in fourth place for $23,384. 'Bit2Easy' took the bronze medal for $30,447, and 'Negriin' fell in second for $39,643, and left 'anteen' to pick up the $51,617 first-place prize. Thomas 'chaAat' Boivin lost out to former Powerfest champion 'nipa3p3' heads-up in the partypoker $2,100 Sunday HR Gladiator. The prize pool was set at $252,150 after 123 entrants took part, and it was to be Austria's 'onehundredeyes' who took third place $16,532 + $9,876 in bounties. Boivin then succumbed to the pressure from his opponent and banked $23,132 + $5,709 as runner-up, with 'nipa3p3' scoring $23,157 plus a massive $38,160 in bounty prizes. 'CardiffPhil' won the partypoker $1,050 Sunday High Roller Deepstack for $41,391 from a 203 player-field. partypoker pro Roberto 'WelshWizard' Romanello took fifth place for $11,165, before 'justkot' exited in fourth for $15,834. 'aLiNeNok1617' took away $21,416.50 in third before 'CardiffPhil' eliminated 'BigPescado69' in second place for $30,044. Roman 'romeopro33' Romanovsky took the bronze medal in the 888poker $50,000 Whale for $8,850. The PocketFives.com world ranked #2 has won 'The Whale' on four previous occasions but was unable to make it a fifth this week. 'REALTTWIST' who came ninth in the 'Mega Deep' make their second final table appearance of the day to bank $14,750 as runner-up, with 'tmurdah' adding the $21,830 first-place prize to their bankroll. Espen 'DubaiPrince4' Jorstad came close to back-to-back wins in the 888poker $100,000 Sunday Mega Deep. The Norweigan pro took down the special half-price event last week to win over $24,000 and with a title defense on his mind, he Twitch streamed his deep run, ultimately falling in sixth place for $4,488. 'DeuceofDuc0' defeated 'Barkley83' heads-up to win the $19,737 first-place prize, with the latter banking $14,790 as runner-up.

  25. Justin 'ZeeJustin' Bonomo was too strong for the PokerStars $2,100 Sunday High Roller field and added yet another win to his name. The American found himself heads-up against 'WATnlos' after players such as Andras 'probirs' Nemeth, Kristen 'Krissyb24' Bicknell and three-time Sunday Million champion 'veeea' had all departed from the final table. Ultimately Bonomo came through the final test and banked $55,673 for his win, with 'WATnlos' having received $42,848 as runner-up. 'CoriACE777' walked away from the PokerStars $109 Sunday Million with the biggest share of the prize pool following a three-way deal. The total prize pool was set at $1,155,900 after 11,559 entrants took part, and after 'MrsLynn18' hit the rail in fourth place for $44,929, the remaining three players agreed to a money-deal before play resumed. 'DIFINI' was awarded the second-highest chunk of cash, but the records will show they finished in third place. 'koyotus' was then the final player to fall and banked his share worth $76,066, as 'CoriACE777' picked up the title alongside $99,888. 'Sanderssi' came through a 1,090 player-field in the PokerStars $530 Bounty Builder High Roller and banked over $89,000. With the total prize pool set at $545,000, 'ade messi' departed with the bronze medal for $23,582 + $2,687 (in bounties), and when 'M.nosbocaJ' saw their title chances come to an end in second place for $32,172 + $734, 'Sanderssi' was the last player standing and collected the gold medal alongside $43,892 + $45,823. Russia's 'Fakhish' won this week's PokerStars $215 Sunday Warm-Up and earnt himself $32,779 in the process. 950 entrants took part which meant the prize pool remained at the guaranteed $200,000. Bryan Paris made the final table and exited in sixth place for $6,597, with 'chicalltreta' and 'Respect_Lt' taking the following two spots. 'NY17PATS14' fell in third place for $17,263 and 'Fakhish' secured victory after he eliminated '12dürma89' in second place for $23,788. There was a return to the schedule for the partypoker $5,200 The Big Game: $1m gtd and with it came 196 entrants. When the final table of eight was set, the UK's Tom 'Fugliee' Simm departed first and banked $23,000, with 'Lintyonthelash', 'Colette1986', 'Don_Marato', and 'FMylife' the next players to hit the rail. High-stakes crusher Roman 'SanityWaterline' Romanovsky collected the bronze medal for $105,000 before 'RPILON' faced off against 'drakeonne' heads-up for the $203,900 first-place prize. The latter was ultimately the final player to fall and banked $148,000, with 'RPILON' taking the glory. partypoker ambassador Joao Simao won the partypoker $2,100 Sunday High Roller Gladiator for over $65,000 after he came through a 120 player-field. 'ifearpanic' exited in eighth place for $4,193 + $4,200 (in bounties), before the Sweden based trio of 'Drulitooo', 'haddoken' and 'MOTHERSMATTERS' were next to depart. 'RovoDice' took fourth place for $11,290 + $6,496, and Sam 'DeanMalenko' Greenwood just missed out on a place in heads-up after he fell in third place for $16,129 + $7,153. The Brazilian Simao then saw off the challenge from 'skitzo793' to record yet another victory on his partner site. Current PocketFives world-ranked #3 'omgitsgiraf' took down the partypoker $1,050 Sunday HR Bounty Hunter for a score worth over $44,000.

'rudiqa1' was the final player to lose their bounty and departed in second place for $18,275 + $4,501, which meant a 203rd PocketFives gold medal for 'omgitsgiraf'.
