  2. Nico PokerKaiserFierro (pictured) has been tearing apart the online poker community this month. We're not even three weeks into June and the Chilean has already piled up 10 online MTT wins and two PocketFives Triple Crowns. And he still has two weeks left in the month to improve upon those numbers. Let's start with his first Triple Crown, which began on June 2 with a win in the WinamaxXPERT for $3,800. Two days later, he found the winner's circle of the PokerStars $109 Rebuy for $8,700. Finally, on June 9, his Triple Crown quest was complete after a victory in the Aced Nightly High Roller
  3. Earlier this month, Sam TheSquidGrafton (pictured) earned his ninth PocketFives Triple Crown. The award requires a person to take down three $10,000 prize pool tournaments across three sites tracked for the PocketFives Rankingswithin seven days. As he put it, "I'm following in the footsteps of the master, moorman1," who has a record-setting two-dozen Triple Crowns, 12 more than the next closest person. "It feels really good," Grafton told PocketFives in an exclusive interview. "I had an abysmal Sunday and the $20 Rebuy on iPoker was the last tournament I was in. I had just gotten 12th in

  5. After a seven-week hiatus from the online poker world due to the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas, Chris moorman1Moorman (pictured) headed back to his computer and quickly earned his 21st PocketFives Triple Crown, extending his own record. He has ten more Triple Crowns than the next closest PocketFiver and has pretty much dominated every award we have on our site. This time, Moorman won the iPoker €10,000 Guaranteed Rebuy for $3,600, the Full Tilt Poker Benjaminfor $6,500, and the Winamax High Roller for $20,000 to round out his 21st Triple Crown.

It was the first time he has won the award and his tournament wins came on PokerStars.fr, Full Tilt, and PokerStars, totaling 550 PLB Points. He lodged the 12th Triple Crown for his home country of Romania. "I rate the Triple Crown as my biggest achievement so far poker-related, so I was very enthusiastic when I realized I managed to earn it," Onel told PocketFives in an exclusive interview.

  8. February may seem like forever ago, but it wasn't too long ago that the second month of 2018 saw the names of Chris 'moorman1' Moorman, Mike 'goleafsgoeh' Leah, and Viktor 'isildur1' Blom capture the headlines. Below are PocketFives' top five stories from February 2018, plus a look back at the February's Monthly PLB winner. MILESTONES: Chris 'moorman1' Moorman Earns 27th Triple Crown Chris 'moorman1' Moorman is online poker’s leading all-time money earner with, at time of writing, $15.595 million in online tournament winnings. In February 2018, Moorman captured headlines when he won his reco
  9. For a brief moment, Sameer ‘ender749’ Singh thought that earning his first PocketFives Triple Crown was going to be easy. “I was the chip leader in the €10K Championship on partypoker with five left. I had a big chip lead and I thought ‘I could just close this out right now.’ If I win it, that’s it, it’s finished. It’s just two days and ‘Boom, done!’” But things didn’t go Singh’s way in that tournament. His quest for his first Triple Crown was going to take a little more effort. You see, Singh, a UK-based pro and member of PocketFives.com since 2015 has been on quite a roll as of late. He’
  10. Every Sunday The PocketFives Milestone Report looks at the online poker players who are achieving career-best achievement or reaching new heights in the rankings Winning a PocketFives Triple Crown is pretty difficult and puts a player into rare air in the online poker tournament scene. In 2014 it’s happened only 14 times and Andreas ‘r4ndomr4gs’ Berggren has three of them - two came last week. As a reminder, players need to win three tournaments inside of a seven-day period and those tournaments need to have a $10,000 minimum prize pool, a field of at least 100 players and have a rea
  11. Last month, Roman Romanovskyi (pictured), known as Romeoproon PocketFives, scooped his fourth PocketFives Triple Crown. He has now won one a year since 2012 and, this time around, took down the PartyPokerSaturday Major, WinamaxTop 50, and PokerStars $109 Rebuy. We caught up with the Kiev resident to talk about his latest claim to fame. PocketFives: Tell us how you're feeling about winning your fourth Triple Crown. Roman Romanovskyi: Pretty great. First of all, I want to thank PocketFives for its existence because it's one of the biggest, if not the biggest, motivating factors for me. Po
  12. [caption width="640"] Ireland's Dara 'Doke' O'Kearney won his fifth PocketFives Triple Crown.[/caption] Five years ago, Ireland's Dara 'Doke' O'Kearney won his very first PocketFives Triple Crown. Six months later, he did it again, his second Triple Crown of 2011. He won one more in May 2013 and another two years later. On April 17, he polished off another milestone: Triple Crown number five.

  13. [caption width="628"] Sweden's 'Sheater' won his fifth PocketFives Triple Crown[/caption] For the first time in more than two years, Sweden's 'Sheater' won a PocketFives Triple Crown. And this one was a milestone, as it marked the fifth won by the longtime online poker player who is nearing $7 million in career winnings. And amazingly, two of his Triple Crown qualifying wins this time around came against the same player. In order to score a Triple Crown, a player must win three multi-table tournaments, each of which starts within the same seven-day period across any three of the network
  14. Late last month, Russia's MatveichukR(pictured) took down his sixth PocketFives Triple Crown. If the award isn't familiar to you, the way to get one is to win three $10,000 prize pool tournaments with at least 100 players each across three sites tracked for the PocketFives Rankings within seven days. PocketFivers have won 106 of them in 2014 and exactly 900 all-time. For MatveichukR, the latest Triple Crown was his sixth overall and his first since September of last year. He told PocketFives in an exclusive interview, "Almost a year has passed since I won my last Triple Crown. A few times,
  15. Last month, England's Scott Aggro SantosMargereson (pictured) won his third PocketFives Triple Crown. He took down three $10,000 prize pool tournaments with at least 100 players each on three sites tracked for the PocketFives Rankings within seven days and made over $25,000 in the process. "It came at a nice time because I started playing for myself a couple of months ago and was on a bit of a downswing right before I won the Triple Crown," Margereson told PocketFives. "In winning the Triple Crown, I had a great Sunday that got me out of the hole I was in." Margereson took down the Poker

  17. Watch "The Sound of Music," which is set in Austria, if the title of this article is confusing. On January 11, a little more than a week into the new year, Austria's neverfoldQ5(pictured) took down a $33 No Limit Hold'em Cap tournament on PokerStars. He scooped $2,800 and, perhaps more importantly, registered the first leg of a PocketFives Triple Crown. One day later, he was back at it, this time on the EU-facing site Winamax, where he won a W Series event for a healthy $44,000. On the 13th, he won the 888 Poker Hurricane, although the tournament didn't qualify for the Triple Crown since it
  18. January was a pretty epic month for Nicolas PokerKaiserFierro (pictured), even by his standards. He took down ten online poker tournaments and scored two PocketFives Triple Crowns during the stanza, raising his lifetime total to 12, the second most of anyone in our community. His first Triple Crown began on the 15th of January with a win in the Winamax XTASEfor $4,500. Four days later, he was off to the races in the PokerStars $109 Cubedand banked $5,900.

  20. Seriously? This author came home from a delicious Mexican lunch only to see an e-mail from the agent of Chris Moorman1Moorman (pictured) saying he had won his 25th PocketFives Triple Crown. I think it's safe to say that Moorman is not human. His latest Triple Crown started on May 8 with a win in an iPOPS event on Everest Poker. The tournament was a $77 Cubed event that drew 521 players and Moorman, playing under the handle RocketMonk, took it down for $15,000. UK PocketFivers, including Moorman, finished in four of the top seven spots and took home 87% of the prize pool. One day later, M
  21. February 2 to 16 was a pretty epic period of time for Denmark's x_zola25, who took down seven tournaments in two weeks for his first PocketFives Triple Crown. It was the 31st Triple Crown for Denmark, so we definitely wanted to catch up with x_zola25 and talk about his groundbreaking effort. Before we hop into the interview, we wanted to highlight the seven tournaments he impressively won in a span of 14 days: February 2: Betfair Sunday Late Night February 6: Betfair €8,000 Guaranteed Rebuy February 10: Betfair High Roller Monday February 14: PokerStars Big $22 February 14: Betfair €

'MatveichukR' Earns Eighth Triple Crown Longtime PocketFiver Roman ‘MatveichukR’ Matveychuk picked up an impressive eighth Triple Crown during the week of July 31. The achievement moves him into a tie for sixth place on the all-time Triple Crown leaderboard with Dara ‘Doke’ O’Kearney. It is enough for an eighth Triple Crown to be marveled at alone, but how Matveychuk did it is just as remarkable. He won all three tournaments for t
