  1. [caption width="640"] Troy ‘teckidtq’ Quenneville and his girlfriend Paulina[/caption] Back in November 2016, when Canadian Troy ‘teckidtq’ Quenneville turned up to play some live poker at the World Poker Tour partypoker Million festival in Punta Cana, the regs probably didn’t think anything of him. After all, he had just two live cashes to his name, combined to the tune of $559. But Troy was something of a Trojan horse. He ended up winning $220K for a runner-up finish in the $5K World Poker Tour main event, followed by victory in the $2,500 partypoker Million for $400,000. This Trojan horse won $620,000 in just a few days. “My recent success can be best credited to confidence,” Quenneville tells me. “I have continued to study and talk with the players whose games I respect the most and that allows me to stay ahead of the curve and outplay my opponents at the highest stakes available to online NLHE MTT players.” Quenneville cut his teeth on the online felt, where he’s racked up more than $3.5 million in tournament winnings. He’s also been on an online tear of late, with his two biggest career cashes coming in the months of February and March. First he won the Super Tuesday for $75K, then he took down the partypoker Super High Roller for $51K. His story, like so many others, began back with the Moneymaker boom. “It started with friends in a basement and progressed to where I was amongst a community of some of the very best MTT players living in a beautiful beach town in Costa Rica,” he says. “But while I was happy, variance was getting the best of me. I lost for two years and while deep down I knew I was playing winning poker, it’s so difficult to remain confident when so many people around you are most focused on results. “I decided it was time I completed my degree. I then had a Mechanical Engineering degree in my hand and no money in my pockets and all I could think of was my one true passion. I was being pressured by my parents to find a job and move out, but I knew I had to follow my passion, and while it still seems crazy given my results at the time, I truly believed in myself. There were some people whose opinions I respected the most in poker who believed in me, and one of them gave me a chance.” As we obviously know now, it was an excellent decision and that belief paid off. “From the very start, things went great. I was doing nothing but winning and we ended our deal on good terms when I wanted to play the highest stakes. I found a new backer who was able to give me that opportunity and we won a package to the Caribbean Poker Party in the final satellite offered. There were two tournaments there I was interested in playing.” And wouldn’t you know it? Quenneville finished in second place and first place in the back-to-back events. “Thankfully my heads up match in the WPT $5K only lasted one hand, because it allowed me to register the partypoker $2M guaranteed with just five minutes to spare. I went on to win that event for $400K and my first real live title by a long shot. It’s still sinking in. But the run good hasn’t slowed down as you can see with my recent online scores. “I do hope to play more live, but don’t expect to find me at the World Series Of Poker all summer paying 30% taxes and dealing with egos and ignorance that are pumped up tenfold in Las Vegas. So yeah, I prefer my desk.” With trips to Panama in the bag (“My two best friends finished sixth and 11th in the Main Event and I ended up profiting over $100K on the week” he says), Quenneville is now in Macau for the PokerStars Championship with his roommate Otter8759, and good friends munchenHB, APJennings, and David 'dpeters17' Peters. When he’s not on the road, though, he calls Costa Rica home. “My normal life consists of fine foods, golfing, relaxing and traveling, hopefully all with my girlfriend Paulina. We live in San Jose, Costa Rica in the tallest building in the country, which makes for beautiful mountainous views but makes the earthquakes a little extra scary. We love it there, and life has never been better. “I would like to thank my parents most of all, for giving me every opportunity growing up and teaching me great values. But I am grown up now, Mom, so let me breathe!”
  2. Each week The PocketFives Milestone Report looks at the online poker players who are achieving career-best achievement or reaching new heights in the rankings Dennis 'Dberglin' Berglin Adds Name to $5 Million Earnings Club Dennis 'Dberglin' Berglin finished third in the PokerStars Sunday Warm-Up on March 26 for $27,375 to pass the $3 million in lifetime earnings mark. He is the 308th player to accomplish the feat and the 21st Swedish player to do it. Other Lifetime Earnings Milestones Two others hit significant career earnings marks this past week. 'OMGRubCasco' of Uruguay and Vladimir 'shabalinvlad' Shabalin of Russia. Both players joined the $1 million earnings club this past week. Only seven Uruguayan players have reached the $1 million mark while Russia's booming poker scene has now 63 players with that distinction. Logi 'rammin' Laxdal and 'Mikensonas' each hit the $500,000 earnings mark. Jerry Ödeen is Another Swede to Keep an Eye On While 'lena900' and 'C Darwin2' continue to keep a hold of the #1 and #2 spot in the PocketFives Rankings, they could soon be joined by yet another Swede in the top 10. Jerry ' perrymejsen' Ödeen hit an all-time high water mark for rankings this week when he climbed from #13 to #12. He is one of six Swedish players ranked in the top 12. Odeen was just one of 12 players ranked in the top 100 to achieve career highs. Included in that group is 'que_te_crio' who debuted in the top 100 for the first time at #90. The other 10: mbo90 from 29 to 18 Troy 'iamthedeck ftw' Quenneville from 30 to 25 brunovolks from 37 to 33 Sphinx87 from 61 to 50 kofi89 from 70 to 56 Toby 'JobyToyce' Joyce from 68 to 58 Adrijan 'adrijan_s' Sinishtaj from 80 to 62 Ryan 'newguy89' McEathron from 100 to 84 Andres 'lordzefiro' Buitrago from 92 to 91 Deividas 'Kvaselis' Kvaselis from 100 to 99 Renato Almeida Prado Valentim Hits Gigantic Score Renato Almeida 'bauruzito' Prado Valentim beat out 374 other players to win the $1,050 buy-in PokerStars Super Tuesday for $68,622 and 612.37 PLB points - both career highs. His previous biggest score cash in 2015 when he won $19,557 for finishing third in the PokerStars Bigger $109. In February, he earned 324.96 PLB points for winning the PokerStars Hot $215.
  3. [caption width="640"] Troy 'iamthedeck ftw' Quenneville won himself a Sunday Major this weekend (WPT photo)[/caption] Canadian Troy 'iamthedeck ftw' Quenneville continued his rise up the PocketFives Rankings by taking down the $2,600 buy-in partypoker Super High Roller this weekend for just over $50,000. Quenneville, the #2 ranked player in Canada, could crack the top 25 of the world wide rankings with the win. There were a number of final table deals reached in major online poker tournament action over the weekend, including a five-way chop in the PokerStars Sunday Million in which fourth-place finisher 'CherryOnT0p' walked away with the largest cash prize of $114,002. The official winner of the event, 'Apekatt666'received $100,722 followed by 'meneerbeer' and 'H1TMANSH' who both took home close to $86,465. 'Ballertimes' cashed for an even $66,000 in 3rd place. Brazilian Edgar 'edg40' Almeida made a name for himself by outlasting well over 131,000 opponents to finish first in the $1 million guaranteed "Sunday Storm 6th Anniversary" special event for a $107,732 payday, chopping heads-up with 'daltonhb' who was awarded 106,000. 'Mishjka xD' earned $63,381 in third place and 'AC_Milan715' cashed for $45,181 in fourth. 'GriffGolf13' placed runner-up in the Sunday Warm-Up, taking home the largest score of $41,500 with official winner 'huang33' collecting $39,564 after a three-way deal. It was 'caecilius' who outlasted the field in the $1,050 buy-in No Limit Hold'em Sunday Grand, taking home $54,731 for the outright victory. In the Pot Limit Omaha version of that tournament, 'Sintoras' negotiated a three-way chop for a $27,312 bankroll boost. 'Madcandle' took down the six-max Sunday Supersonic for $37,213. Quennevile collected $51,698 for the Super High Roller victory while veteran P5er and fellow Canadian Jon 'apestyles' Van Fleet picked up $35,159 for the runner-up slot in that event. 'BuyThaPot' was the top finisher in the $530 buy-in version of that tournament, taking home $37,328 for the win. 85th-ranked Scott 'AggroSantos' Margereson of the United Kingdom won the $600 buy-in 888 Poker WHALE event over the weekend and took home $29,694.

  4. [caption width="640"] Connor Drinan, who plays out of Vancouver, takes over as the new Canadian #1. (WPT photo)[/caption] Some of the best online poker players in the world play from the confines of Canada. A breeding ground of some the game’s most influential players including Daniel Negreanu, World Series of Poker Main Event Champion Jonathan Duhamel, Michel ‘SirWatts’ Watson and Mike ‘Timex’ McDonald. However, in the post-Black Friday scramble to keep the grind alive, many players from the U.S. moved north to set up shop so keep that in mind as we examine the current group that is the Canadian Top 10. Case in point, the new King In The North is actually from Arlington Heights, Illinois. Connor ‘blanconegro’ Drinan (6,596.41 PLB points), who had been lying in wait in the #2 spot, ascended to take the top spot this month with a series of eye-popping scores including his victory in the PokerStars Sunday 500 in late October for $49,153 and a runner-up finish in the PokerStars $2,100 Sunday High Roller for another $54,307. The scoring surge not only pushed Drinan into the #1 spot in Canada but catapulted him back into the Top 20 in the Worldwide Rankings, currently sitting at #18. The roles have reversed for Canada’s former #1-ranked player, Chris ‘Apotheosis’ Kruk (6,182.05) who now trails Drinan by just over 400 PLB points. A closer look into the number though, reveals Kruk’s amazing staying power. Since we last took a hard look at the Canadian rankings, Kruk has put in very light volume, recording merely four scores - two of which were for over $30,000. In total, Kruk amassed over $73,000 in four tournaments including a third place finish in the partypoker Super High Roller on November 12 for $31,889 and then, the very next day, a victory in the partypoker High Roller for an additional $34,005. Should he continue to post results like these, Kruk may be in line for another stay atop the Canadian rankings. Currently, Kruk sits as the #26-ranked player in the world and is very likely to eclipse $2 million in lifetime earnings in the very near future. The #3 spot belongs to the most recent winner of the partypokerLive Millions Punta Cana, Toronto’s Sam ‘Pudge714’ Greenwood (5515.83). Greenwood has been on a tear, both live and online, not only taking down the Main Event in Punta Cana, but finishing as the runner-up in the partypoker Punta Cana Super High Roller for $242,000 and, just days before that, banking another $124,100 for a third-place finish in the High Roller of the same series. While amazing, none of that factors into his current standing as the Canadian #3. Greenwood seemingly took most of October off from the online grind as he registered only a pair of scores, but he fired up the online client to get some reps in for Punta Cana in early November bringing in four four-figure scores and enough PLB points to hold his position - for now. Fewer than 84 points behind Greenwood sits Troy ‘iamthedeck ftw’ Quenneville. Unlike some of his high-rolling colleagues, the #4-ranked Quenneville is a true grinder - posting results on a near daily basis from the mid-stakes schedule up through the PokerStars Sunday Million. To date in November, Quenneville has posted roughly 80 cashes, including a third-place finish in the $22 Mini Sunday Supersonic good for $5,252. His relentless schedule has him approximately $60,000 shy of achieving $4.5 million in lifetime earnings. The current #69-ranked Worldwide player, Joel ‘jbrown8777’ Brown (5,153.78) rounds out the Top Five. Brown has been crushing the month of November with 36 four-figure scores thus far. That doesn’t include his fifth-place finish in the PokerStars $530 Bounty Builder High Roller for an additional $12,224. His productivity is sure to land him in the pages of the PocketFives.com Milestones column soon as he is set to hit $6 million in lifetime earnings any day now. Doug ‘OU_dlanger610’ Lang (5,067.09) has slid back a few spots in the past month or so and currently sits as the #6-ranked “Canadian”. Understandable though as the New York native has been putting in light volume since September, still benefiting (points wise) from his big PokerStars Sunday Million win back in late July. Joseph ‘Jughead11’ Lacasse (4,833.13) assumes the #7 spot as his ranking has been steadily on the rise. The new #1-ranked player in Ottawa has been putting in a ton of volume and posting a myriad of results on a daily basis. Not only is he appearing in the Canadian Top 10 this month, he recently just breached the Worldwide Top 100 rankings as well. Former #2-ranked player in the world, Mike ‘Pipedream17’ Dietrich (4,442.89) checks in at #8 still riding high off his PokerStars Sunday Million victory in mid-October where he won over $160,000 and accumulated a massive 1,090.69 point score. Sebastian ‘p0cket00’ Sikorski (4,321.57) continues to hold the #9 spot, trailing Dietrich by only 121.32 points and in November Samuel ‘Samuelbt’ Tsehai (4,192.15) scored victories in a pair PokerStars tournaments including the Bounty Builder for $4,757 and the Big $33 for $2,841 to climb into the final spot in the Top 10.

  5. Veteran PocketFives member Chris 'Big Huni' Hunichen of Costa Rica (ranked #82 worldwide) came up big in the partypoker "Super High Roller" event Sunday, cashing for $143,325 after outlasting a highly competitive field in the $5,200 buy-in Powerfest showcase event. 'orud74' finished second in that event and was awarded $102,375. 'PokerG1rl69' took home $73,125 for third, 'PartyRainer' walked away with $51,188 in fourth and 'JETFIRE68' cashed for $38,025 in fifth place. The $1,050 buy-in "High Roller" on Party was won by 'Ciao_Polacco' who collected a $63,546 payday, followed by 'tezcarts78' in the runner-up position for $45,212. There was a two-way chop in the $1,050 buy-in No Limit Hold'em PokerStars Sunday Grand, as 'Fresh_oO_D' and 'SsicK_OnE' took home $37,923 and $37,272 for their respective first and second place efforts. The Pot Limit Omaha version of that event was won by 'WATnlos' for a cash prize of $34,051. PocketFives member Nedelcu 'Narcisus90' Narcis of Romania (ranked #165 worldwide) took down the Sunday Supersonic six-max tournament and collected $37,281. Top 1,000 ranked Christian 'recochi' Altmann of Peru outlasted over 26,000 opponents to capture an outright victory in the Sunday Storm event for an online tournament career-best $26,601. The 888poker WHALE tournament witnessed a three-way final table chop as 'JBA888' received $34,147 for the official victory. Second and third place went to 'anteen' and 'allesrigged' who each took home over $32,000 cash.

  6. [caption width="640"] Canada's current Top 10 is replete with some of online poker's strongest players[/caption] When it comes to the current crop of top-ranked online poker player in Canada, one must remember to shift their mindset to thinking of Canada as simply the location rather than the nationality. In the post-Black Friday online poker landscape, Canada has emerged as one of the major landing spots for many American poker expats who decided to pick up and relocate in order to stay on the grind. So with that in mind, we take a closer look at the PocketFives.com Top 10 ranked poker players who spend their online time inside the Great White North. Currently sitting atop the Canadian rankings is Toronto, Ontario's Chris 'Apotheosis' Kruk (6,535.77 PLB points). The online crusher and Run It Once instructor had a monster September finding himself super deep in many of the biggest buy-in tournaments (WCOOP, Powerfest, XL Eclipse) the month had to offer. Racking up 24 major cashes, seven of which were of the five-figure variety, Kruk not only finds himself as the #1-ranked Canadian, but now sits at #22 in the world. Just behind Kruk and ready to make a run at the top spot is high-stakes phenom Connor 'blanconegro' Drinan (6,273.72). Sitting in second, trailing by 262.05 points, Drinan is making moves to ascend in the ranking thanks to his October grind. While Kruk has yet to post many results yet this month, Drinan, who hails from Illinois but plays in Vancouver, has been piling up the points by grinding out large Sunday schedules through the first part of October. New York resident, playing out of Ontario, Doug 'OU_dlanger610' Lang (6,181.39) occupies the #3 spot. Lang, currently sitting at #30 in the Worldwide rankings, was a workhorse in September. Seemingly playing every event on the 888poker and PokerStars schedules resulted in 90 cashes for the month, highlighted by his final table finish in the WCOOP Event #82-L ($530 No Limit Hold'em High Roller) for over $13,000. Toronto's Sam 'Pudge714' Greenwood (6,138.82) is next on the leaderboard. The World Series of Poker bracelet winner packed on the PLB points in September but it was his fifth place finish in the $25,000 buy-in Powerfest Championship Event, for nearly $250,000, that currently accounts as his biggest score for the sliding PLB period. Troy 'iamthedeck ftw' Quenneville (6061.87), Windsor, Ontario's #1-ranked player caps off the top five in Canada. A true grinder, Quenneville has been putting up a myriad of results on a daily basis. His volume has him constantly chipping away at the top spot as well as closing in on $4.5 million in lifetime earnings. A nearly 900-point gap separates the top five from the rest of the pack. Joel 'jbrown8777' Brown, a former top five Worldwide ranked player, occupies the #6 spot while Austin, Texas online poker legend and three-time Triple Crown award winner, Jonathan 'apestyles' Van Fleet, is slotted in #7. Montreal's top player, 'Trans4m', recently took down the PokerStars $22 Mini Sunday Supersonic for over $11,000, good for his highest point total of the period (284.92) and the #8 position. 'Trans4m' sits just inside the Top 100 in the Worldwide Rankings. Former #1-ranked Worldwide player, Sebastian 'p0cket00' Sikorski, continued to add to his over $10,000,000 in lifetime earnings by finishing in the money over 100 times in September and just ahead of Ryan 'newguy89' McEathron, who completes the current Canadian top 10 list. Sitting only 10 points behind Sikorski, McEatheron recently padded his point total with a recent outright victory in the prestigious PokerStars $1,050 Super Tuesday for nearly $60,000.
