Chris Moorman is easily one of the most - if not the most - decorated players in PocketFives history. He's been the #1-ranked player 13 different times and has held that spot for a combined 23 weeks. He was the first player to break $10 million and $15 million in lifetime earnings. Those accolades, along with his Global Poker Awards PocketFives Legacy Award, afforded the Englishman a first-round bye in the #1 Number One bracket, but the rest of the Hearts bracket presents a formidable challenge if Moorman has any designs on advancing and adding the #1 Number One Championship Belt to his collection. The rest of the bracket includes the likes of 'C Darwin2', Patrick 'pleno1' Leonard, Bert 'girafganger7' Stephens, and the late Chad 'M8kingmoves' Batista. Enter the #1 Number One Contest Now! C Darwin2 (#2) vs Jovial Gent (#15) Between February 2016 and May 2019, Sweden's 'C Darwin2' enjoyed eight different reigns at the #1 spot for a total of 66 weeks (third all-time). That, coupled with $16,779,066 in lifetime earnings, propelled 'C Darwin2' to the #2 seed in the Hearts bracket and made for a formidable first round opponent for Yevgeniy 'Jovial Gent' Timoshenko, who comes in at #15. Timoshenko held the #1 spot for a single week in May 2007 and has $4,826,132 in lifetime online earnings. Gettin Daize (#3) vs vinkyy (#14) Chris 'Getting Daize' Oliver took the #1 spot for the first time in August 2010 and then again in December of the same year. In both instances Oliver's grasp on the top spot lasted just one week. Still, the American, who now calls Costa Rica home, has $15,200,033 in lifetime online earnings, which is good enough for fifth best. Oliver's first round opponent, 'vinkyy' was #1 in the world for a single week back in October 2013 and has four PocketFives Triple Crowns to his credit. eisenhower1 (#4) vs brsavage (#13) Chris 'brsavage' Savage was the very first player to hold down the #1 spot on PocketFives. From January 17, 2005 thru April 18, 2005, Savage was considered the top online MTT player in the world. His status as 'PocketFives OG' could lead him to an upset over one of the best players Sweden has ever produced. Christian 'eisenhower1' Jeppsson took his turn at #1 for one week from September 30, 2015 thru October 7, 2015. He's also captured six Triple Crowns. Legenden (#5) vs norfair18 (#12) From March thru May 2013, 'Legenden' was in the online poker streets battling with some of the best in the world and put up results that allowed him to rise to the #1 ranking three different times. The competition was so fierce that two of his reigns lasted just one week and the third was two weeks. His first round opponent, 'norfair18' had a single week as the top-ranked online poker player in the world, taking the spot from Nicolas 'PokerKaiser' Fierro in April 2015. pleno1 (#6) vs lukethafluke (#11) Patrick 'pleno1' Leonard has been #1 on PocketFives on four separate occasions, most recently in November 2019. That reign, which lasted one week, came more than five years after he first topped the rankings. Leonard has $12.5 million in earnings and has won one Triple Crown and two monthly leaderboards. His first round opponent, Lukas 'lukethafluke' Berglund earned the #11 seed thanks to four turns at #1 between January and June in 2014 which helped push his lifetime earnings past $5 million. girafganger7 (#7) vs taypaur (#10) With more than $14 million in lifetime earnings and three reigns at #1, Bert 'girafganger7' Stephens still finds himself as an underdog to advance beyond the first round. Even then, he still has to make it past Taylor 'taypaur' Paur. On two separate occasions, Paur was #1 in the world with reigns lasting two weeks and seven weeks respectively. He also has more than $5 million in lifetime earnings. M8kingmoves (#8) vs ch0ppy (#9) Chad 'M8kingmoves' Batista had just one reign at #1, but he made the absolute most of it. Batista took over the #1 spot on August 22, 2007 and didn't let go of it for an astonishing 45 weeks, the second-longest reign of all-time trailing only Cliff 'JohnnyBax' Josephy's 74-week reign. Batista still has to get through Matt 'ch0ppy' Kay who had two week-long turns atop the Rankings in in July 2012 and February 2013. The Canadian also has five Triple Crown awards and $7.2 million in lifetime online earnings. Make your picks in the PocketFives #1 Number One Contest - entries due by Midnight ET on April 2.

For the second straight week, we have a new #1 player atop the PocketFives Online Poker Rankings, which are recalculated every Wednesday. This time, it's Sweden's Sheater, who was last ranked #1 in January. This is Sheater's second stint at #1, a spot no player has held for more than four weeks since the middle of last year. Sheater moved up two spots to #1 and has a slim four-point edge over Chris moorman1Moorman, last week's #1 who now sits at #2 and just won a World Poker Tour titlein Los Angeles. Sheater finished third in the PokerStars Sunday Six-Max over the weekend for $17,000 and 224 PLB Points, and incredibly has 22 tracked in the money finishes with two wins since Sunday. Another former #1 making waves this week was Vinkyy (pictured), who moved up three spots to reenter the top 10 at #8 worldwide. Vinkyy was last ranked #1 in October and has $5.2 million in tracked scores. He is about 800 PLB Points away from eclipsing Sheater for #1, so he has some ground to make up, but just passed 5,000 tracked in the money finishes, one of the highest totals of anyone on PocketFives. One of the biggest jumps of the week inside the top 100 went to Malta's fzkk, who just won his second PocketFives Triple Crown. He moved up from #52 worldwide to #23, a jump of 29 spots, and recently recorded five wins in four days to help push him toward the top 20. The Malta player earned his $1 million cash badge on PocketFives on March 6. Leaping 23 spots to settle at #44 in the world is 23NoraB, who calls Austria home. He is another March Triple Crown winner and can be found at #4 in his home nation. Other than his third Triple Crown, his big claim to fame in recent days is taking down the Full Tilt Poker T-Rex for $33,000 on Sunday, earning 380 PLB Points in the process. He has 159 tracked wins that have helped boost his career earnings to $3.5 million. Canada's blanconegrowon the Full Tilt $250,000 Guarantee over the weekend for $55,000 and a solid 524 PLB Points to move up 24 places in the Rankings to #59. He received his $3 million cash badge on Wednesday, the same day as the Rankings were updated, and seems poised to shatter his all-time high of #40 worldwide, set last year. The highest debut in the top 100 of the Rankings went to Poland's TryToExploit (pictured), who entered at #71, three places off his highest position ever. TryToExploit won the PokerStars Sunday Million last weekend for 1,348 PLB Points officially, the largest score of the week on any site. He finished 68th in the PokerStars Eighth Anniversary Sunday Million on March 2, which earned him 210 PLB Points.
