  5. It's Wednesday, which means the PocketFives Online Poker Rankingshave been recalculated. One of the notable moves of the week went to Portugal's Rui RuiNF Ferreira (pictured), who moved up from #24 to #8 worldwide, his highest position ever. Ferreira has five wins in the last week: PokerStars.fr FCOOP Minuit Express Special for $4,000 Winamax XPERT for $5,400 Full Tilt Turbo Multi-Hundo for $16,000 PokerStars Big $162 for $20,000 PokerStars $109 Quad for $4,400 He is just a few thousand dollars away from passing $4 million in online tournament winnings and has been a member of PocketFives for the last three years. Ferreira's largest career cash was worth almost $200,000 officially and came earlier this year in the SCOOP Super Tuesday after a runner-up finish. Brazil's Yuri Martins is the #1 player on PocketFives for the second straight week. He hasn't recorded a cash since the end of September, but his 2,159 PLB Point haul from the WCOOP Main Event was enough to send him shooting to the top of the Rankings. He won the Bigger $162 the same day for another $51,000 and 565 PLB Points. One of the biggest jumps inside the top 100 of the Rankings belonged to Sweden's Smeckten (pictured), who moved up 47 spots to land at #34. On October 12, he won the PokerStars Sunday Second Chance for $41,000 and also took down a $215 No Limit Hold'em Turbo on the same site for another $18,000. He is the fifth-ranked Swede in the Rankings. Reentering the top 100 this week was longtime member Paul paulgees81 Volpe, who came in at #49. Volpe had a rock solid Sunday that saw him final table the Warm-Up, win a No Limit Omaha tournament, and take down the $109 Rebuy, all on PokerStars. Volpe has almost $8 million in combined live and online winnings and has been one of the most successful players in the history of the game. Another familiar face cracking the top 10 this week was Faraz The-Toilet Jaka (pictured), who can be found at #87. Jaka's all-time high is #27, set two years ago, and he won the Full Tilt Super Sized Sunday ten days ago for $29,000. One week before that, Jaka finished fifth in the WCOOP Main Event for 1,245 PLB Points, helping his top 100 bid. Here are the top ten players in the Rankings this week along with the PLB score for each: 1. Yuri Martins - 8,029 2. PokerKaiser - 7,840 3. p0cket00 - 7,483 4. CrownUpGuy - 7,253 5.

  6. If the opening days of the European Poker Tour stop in Barcelona are any indication, it's going to be a helluva week of poker in the Spanish city. Spanish grinder Sergi Reixach is proof of that. Playing the first €100,000 buy-in event of his career, Reixach topped the 64-entry field in the €100,000 Super High Roller event on Monday, beating a final table that included Luc Greenwood, Danny Tang, Steve O'Dwyer, and eventual runner-up Sam Grafton to win €1,816,210 ($2,015,000 US). Rui Ferreira started the final table with just 11 big blinds, but he took on the role of spectator for the first elimination. Mikalai Vaskaboinikau moved all in from UTG for 720,000 and Reixach moved all in over the top from late position. Vaskaboinikau turned over [poker card="9h"][poker card="9s"] but found out he was behind the [poker card="td"][poker card="th"] of Vaskaboinikau. The board ran out [poker card="6h"][poker card="2c"][poker card="2s"][poker card="tc"][poker card="as"] to give Reixach a full house and eliminate Vaskaboinikau in ninth. Ferreira's spectator status lasted just another 20 minutes before he became Reixach's second victim of the day. Reixach raised to 110,000 from the hijack before Ferreira moved all in for 650,000 from the big blind. Reixach called and turned over a[poker card="ac"][poker card="kh"] which put him ahead of Ferreira's [poker card="ah"][poker card="8c"]. The flop came [poker card="qc"][poker card="5h"][poker card="4d"] and Ferreira was unable to improve. Nothing changed for him through the [poker card="9h"] turn and [poker card="2d"] river and he was out in eighth place. Nearly an hour later, Tsugunari Toma raised from the cutoff before Steve O'Dwyer moved all in for 500,000. Toma called and turned over [poker card="ah"][poker card="4h"] while O'Dwyer showed [poker card="5d"][poker card="5h"]. The [poker card="qh"][poker card="8s"][poker card="2s"] flop kept O'Dwyer ahead but the [poker card="ac"] turn gave Toma top pair and after the [poker card="2c"] river, O'Dwyer was out in seventh. Reixach went got back to work and this time sent of the Greenwood brothers packing. Action folded to Greenwood in the hijack and he moved all in for 1,005,000. Reixach moved all-in from the small blind and then showed [poker card="ad"][poker card="qc"]. Greenwood was slightly ahead with [poker card="6h"][poker card="6s"]. The [poker card="qs"][poker card="3s"][poker card="2c"] flop changed things though and Greenwood was left wanting through the [poker card="5c"] turn and [poker card="qd"] river on his way to a sixth place finish. Reixach was involved in the next elimination as well - but only briefly. Reixach raised to 160,000 from UTG and Sam Grafton called from the hijack before Toma moved all in from the small blind for 755,000. Reixach folded but Grafton called. Toma showed [poker card="ac"][poker card="jd"] and Grafton tabled [poker card="8c"][poker card="8d"]. The [poker card="9c"][poker card="3d"][poker card="2c"][poker card="3c"][poker card="2s"] runout failed to save Toma and he was out in fifth place. Four-handed play lasted just 20 minutes before Grafton sent another player to the rail. Kahle Burns raised to 650,000 from the button and Grafton responded by moving all in from the big blind. Burns called all-in and showed [poker card="kh"][poker card="qc"] which put him well ahead of Grafton's [poker card="ks"][poker card="9s"]. The [poker card="as"][poker card="9h"][poker card="5d"] flop gave Grafton middle pair and Burns was unable to regain the lead after the [poker card="3s"] turn and [poker card="ad"] river and was eliminated in fourth. Another 20 minutes passed and the tournament was heads-up. From the button, Danny Tang moved all in for 690,000 and Reixach called from the small blind. Grafton folded his big blind and Tang revealed [poker card="ac"][poker card="8h"] only to find himself dominated by Reixach's [poker card="ad"][poker card="qh"]. The [poker card="9c"][poker card="9d"][poker card="2h"] flop gave Tang some chop outs but he was happy to see the [poker card="8c"] turn only to have the [poker card="as"] river give Reixach a better two-pair to eliminate Tang in third. Reixach began heads-up play with a slight chip lead and it took nearly three hours for him to finish off Grafton. From the button, Reixach called before Grafton raised to 600,000. Reixach called and then called again after Grafton bet 325,000 on the [poker card="kc"][poker card="js"][poker card="3h"] flop. The turn was the [poker card="5d"] and both players checked. The river was the [poker card="7h"] and Grafton moved all in for 1,725,000 and Reixach snap-called. Grafton showed [poker card="qc"][poker card="6s"] while Reixach happily tabled [poker card="kd"][poker card="8d"] to eliminate Grafton and win the EPT Barcelona Super High Roller for a career-best €1,816,210 score. Final Table Payouts Sergi Reixach - €1,816,210 Sam Grafton - €1,303,950 Danny Tang - €847,570 Kahle Burns - €639,560 Tsugunari Toma - €496,740 Luc Greenwood - €384,980 Steve O'Dwyer - €304,250 Rui Ferreira - €235,950 Mikalai Vaskaboinikau - €180,070
  7. Rui RuiNFFerreira (pictured) has been making waves during the ongoing PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker. For his latest trick, the Czech Republic poker player won a $215 No Limit Hold'em Big Antes event with an optional reentry for $59,000. But that was only part of a highly successful run so far that has resulted in Ferreira sitting atop the WCOOP Leaderboard after 20 events. --- Tournament Poker Edgeis the only poker training site dedicated exclusively to MTTs and features over 1,000 training videos, blogs, articles, podcasts and a dedicated strategy forum for members. Check Tournament Poker Edge out on Twitter. --- Ferreira was one of the short stacks entering the final table of the Big Antes event, but made it to heads-up play with a 3:2 chip lead. It was a back-and-forth heads-up battle that almost ended with Ferreira's opponent, pkace666, winning, but pkace666 dropped a race with A-9 against Ferreira's 8-8 after the PocketFiver spiked a two-outer on the river. After another hour, pkace666 ran K-J into A-A to give Ferreira his first WCOOP title. The final hand was equally dramatic despite the pre-flop odds. A flop of J-10-4 gave pkace666 a pair and he hit kings-up to pull ahead on the turn. However, Ferreira found a queen on the river for Broadway and the WCOOP title. Here's how the final table cashed out: 1. RuiNF (Czech Republic) - $59,904 2. pkace666 (United Kingdom) - $44,928 3. Protential (Canada) - $33,696 4. telks (Cyprus) - $24,616 5. leitalopez (Argentina) - $17,784 6. sosickPL (Poland) - $13,852 7. imluckbox (Australia) - $10,108 8. serhiy1989 (Ukraine) - $6,552 9. funwheel (Thailand) - $3,744 But wait, there's more. Not to be content with simply one WCOOP title, Ferreira kept firing up tournaments and nearly captured a second trophy in Event #19, a $320 No Limit Hold'em Turbo Zoom contest. That tournament drew almost 2,000 entrants and Ferreira walked away with another $21,000, officially taking sixth place, his second WCOOP final table in a matter of days. But wait, there's even more. Ferreira also took down the PokerStars Sunday Kickoff over the weekend for $32,000. He has removed his screen names from his PocketFives profile, so we can't tell you how much in MTT earnings he has all-time, but we do know that he has final tabled just about every Sunday Major you can name and owns a pair of PocketFives Triple Crowns. As expected, Ferreira paces the WCOOP Leaderboard with 215 points, 50 more than the next closest player. There are still more than 50 events on deck for the 2015 WCOOP, so anything can happen.
