  1. 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.

  2. [caption width="450"] Smeckten just won his fourth PocketFives Triple Crown[/caption] In recent days, Sweden's Smecktenwon his fourth PocketFives Triple Crown, his first of 2015. If you're not familiar with the award, a Triple Crown requires a person to win three $10,000 prize pool tournaments across three sites tracked for the PocketFives Rankings within a week. Each tournament must have at least 100 players and a real money buy-in. Satellites do not count. Smeckten has won seven tournaments since December 3 and started his fourth Triple Crown run by taking down the PartyPoker Heavyweight Weigh-Inon December 14 for $2,600 and 110 PLB Points, the metric used to determine our Rankings. The same day, he won the €15,000 Grand Monday on Betfair, adding another $4,100 to his coffers along with 134 PLB Points. Three days later, his Triple Crown quest was complete, this time after a victory in the PokerStars.fr Night on Stars, which earned him almost $4,000 and 135 PLB Points. All told, his fourth Triple Crown meant a bankroll boost of almost $11,000. Smeckten told PocketFives about his latest Triple Crown, "I'm feeling good about it. I guess it's some kind of evidence that you're doing something well and running hot. I don't put that much effort into Triple Crowns normally, as I'm more thrilled about the regular Rankings, but in general I feel great about the way I played and how I have been running lately." The Swede is up to 86 tracked wins. Three of his four Triple Crowns have come in the month of December: December 1, 2013 on PokerStars, PokrStars.fr, and Winamax for 606.92 points August 19, 2014 on PartyPoker, Full Tilt, and PokerStars.fr for 715.84 points December 13, 2014 on PokerStars.fr, PokerStars, and Full Tilt for 511.12 points December 14, 2015 on PartyPoker, Betfair, and PokerStars.fr for 379.82 points Smeckten is $68,000 shy of hitting $4 million in career online tournament winnings, the largest of which was worth $161,000 and came by virtue of final tabling a SCOOP $1,050 No Limit Hold'em Wrap-Up event last year. He has wins in the 888 Volcano, PokerStars Sunday 500, PokerStars Sunday Second Chance, PartyPoker Sunday Major, and PokerStars Thursday Thrill, just to name a few: [caption width="662"] Smeckten is up to almost ART million in online MTT winnings[/caption] Swedes are up to 54 Triple Crowns over the years, the fourth largest total of any country.

  3. [caption width="450"] Smeckten won his fifth PocketFives Triple Crown[/caption] On Tuesday, Sweden's Smecktencaptured his fifth PocketFives Triple Crown. It was his second of the month and the 56th earned by a player from the European country over the years. Smeckten told PocketFives shortly afterwards, "It was a good way to end the year. The last tournament for my fifth Triple Crown is the last tournament I'll enter this year." Way to go out in style. On December 27, Smeckten won the 888 Poker Crocodilefor $16,000. The tournament had a $160 buy-in and Smeckten played under the user name Ejsenhoven1on its host network. There were 532 entrants in the Crocodile and Smeckten was one of four PocketFivers to make the final table. It took all of two days from there for Smeckten to claim his fifth PocketFives Triple Crown. On December 29, he won the PartyPoker Heavyweight Turbofor $2,700 and the PokerStars $82 No Limit Hold'em Six-Max Hyper-Turbo for $3,600. More importantly, the dual wins meant his fifth Triple Crown and his second one earned in December. The Heavyweight Turbo on PartyPoker had a $109 buy-in and 109 runners. Smeckten was one of three members of PocketFives to finish in the top seven. The Hyper-Turbo on PokerStars attracted a field of 198 and a dozen PocketFivers cashed in it for 37% of the prize pool in total. Smeckten's first Triple Crown came on December 1, 2013 after victories on PokerStars, PokerStars.fr, and Winamax for a total of 606 PLB Points. Eight months later, he won tournaments on PartyPoker, Full Tilt, and PokerStars.fr for a total of 715 PLB Points, his largest sum for a Triple Crown. The Swede won his next accolade in December 2014 after taking down MTTs on PokerStars.fr, PokerStars, and Full Tilt for a total of 511 PLB Points. His Triple Crown earlier this month, the fourth of his career, was worth 379 points and came after wins on PartyPoker, Betfair, and PokerStars.fr. His latest Triple Crown is his only one not to include a win on PokerStars.fr. [caption width="659"] Smeckten's PocketFives profile[/caption] The Sweden pokercommunity is up to 56 Triple Crowns overall, the fourth largest total of any country behind the United States (136), Canada (124), and the United Kingdom (123). Smeckten, perhaps unsurprisingly, is up to #3 worldwide in the PocketFives Rankings, his highest position ever. A Triple Crown requires a player to win three MTTs on three different networks that PocketFives tracks within a seven-day period. Each tournament must have a prize pool of at least $10,000, 100 or more players, and a real money buy-in. Satellites do not count.

We had two new entrants into the top 10 this week, Smeckten(pictured) and IgorK, who can now be found at #9 and #10, respectively. Let's start with Smeckten, who moved up five spots to #9 in the world. He had a rock solid day on Monday, winning the PokerStars $215 No Limit Hold'em Turbo and Big $162 for $20,000 total.
