  1. The 2021 Online Player of the Year race stands to be one of the most contested in recent history as every major operator continues the trend of last year by offering a wealth of major events backed by massive guarantees. With nearly a quarter of the year already played out, an early look at the OPOY race has some of the biggest names in online poker putting in the work to be in contention for the title down the road. The current leader of the pack is Portugal’s Joao ‘Naza114’ Vieira who has leveraged a number of high-profile six-figure scores to build an early OPOY lead but also enter the t
  2. For the second month in a row, a high-profile Brazilian poker pro ran away with the monthly PLB contest as Yuri ‘Yuri Martins’ Dzivielevski used a pair of major six-figure scores to help clinch the February Online Poker Player of the Month title. It was an impressive performance from Dzivielevski who, despite the shorter month, put up more than 1000 more PLB points than his countryman Brunno ‘bbotteon’ Botteon did when he won the award in January. In the end, Dzivielevski racked up 4,942.38 PLB points, with many of them coming from his battles in the high-roller arenas. It took less than
  3. For weeks now, the worldwide Online Poker Rankings have been a tight-knit crew. Brunno ‘bbotteon’ Botteon has held down the top spot for the past eight weeks and well-known names like Ivan ‘zufo16’ Zufic, Mike ‘SirWatts’ Watson, and Bert ‘girafganger7’ Stevens have occupied their own positions inside the Top 5. But this week, a new player broke through into the upper echelons of the rankings for the first time in his career. Portugal’s #1-ranked pro Rui ‘RuiNF’ Ferreira soared past Brazil’s Bruno ‘brunovolks’ Volkmann and Yuri ‘Yuri Martins’ Dzivieleski to capture the #5 spot, building on w

  6. Last month, the Winamax High Roller, a $375 No Limit Hold'em tournament, drew 162 entrants and paid out a first place prize of $16,000. Its recipient was Scotland PocketFiver squire1888 (pictured), who is up to almost a half-million dollars in career online tournament winnings. "It was my first outright win in a while," squire1888 told PocketFives. "It's always a good feeling to get the monkey off your back." The High Roller is a six-max tournament on Winamax and squire1888 said of it, "It was the first time I have ever played it. I don't usually include it in my schedule, as it's a bit bal
  7. The PocketFives Openis back after a three-month hiatus. This week, we're headed to Winamax, which accepts players from the European Union.

  9. Earlier this year, Australia's sammejao(pictured) won the Winamax High Roller for the second time. His first taste of victory in it came in 2014 on a Sunday and was good for $20,000, while his latest go-around came during the week for almost $6,000. To win a high-dollar six-max tournament two times is quite a feat, so we thought an interview was appropriate. "It feels great," sammejao said of his dual victories. "Six-max is the most fun poker format and also my best game. It's fun to win a tournament with a higher buy-in because they normally have more challenging players. The first time I
  10. Earlier this month, the Winamax Grand Tournamentplayed out on the EU-facing site. There were over 1,000 entrants and, after the final cards were dealt, Sweden's Eiffel– like the tower – came away with a $30,000 score and took second place. His hit came just a few weeks after a win in the site's High Roller. "It's all about binking Sundays," he boasted. --- Follow professional sports tipsters, make your own betting tips, and compete for real cash prizes. Tipdayis the ultimate sports tipping resource.

  11. According to a variety of sources including PokerNews and Pokerfuse, the head of the French internet gambling regulator ARJEL, Charles Coppolani (pictured), called online poker a "fad" that's "over." The comments came in an interview with the French outlet Les Echos. According to Pokerfuse, Coppolani said in part, "The fad is over. Basically, the online poker market may be mature." PokerNews quoted him as saying, "ARJEL's objective was to turn the illegal offer into a legal, regulated, and safe one for players, and here I think we reached our main goal. However, on a global scale, the mar

  14. On the final weekend of July, Sweden's MangeJao, whose real name is Magnus Nordmark (pictured), won the Winamax High Roller for $14,000 following a two-way chop. The six-max tournament had 190 entrants and a buy-in of nearly $400, with the top 21 getting paid. Nordmark told us in an exclusive interview, "It felt good.

  15. Late last month, about 100 players turned out for the latest running of the PocketFives Open, our main community-building event.

  17. It’s another week in the #1 spot for the Swedish destroyer ‘C Darwin2’. With a PLB point total of 10,674.85, the online legend continues to hold a massive lead of over 1100 points to whoever would challenge him in the #2 spot. His lead though, as wide as it is, is not insurmountable. Sure, it’s tough to pick up that many qualifying cashes in a week, but every week old scores decrease in value and this week ‘C Darwin2’ failed to add any new meaningful PLB points to his total. So if that continues, it may open the door for a guy like Andreas ‘probirs’ Nemeth. Last week ‘lena900’ had an amazing
  18. We have interviewed several players here on PocketFives who have won the Winamax High Roller. The most recent among them: Prague's pappadogg (pictured), who took it down for $13,000. He's primarily a cash game player, but has had a considerable amount of success in the tournament world as well, amassing $1.5 million in cashes in his PocketFives profile. We sat down with the sport fanatic to get the inside dish on his latest Sunday win. PocketFives: Nice job winning the Winamax High Roller. Tell us how you're feeling about it. pappadogg: This tournament has been pretty good to me. I have

  20. The 2014 PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP) and the Winamax W Series both started their second weeks, which meant plenty of action online. As of 12:00 Eastern Time Monday, several key WCOOP events were still in progress. We will update this article after the covered tournaments are concluded.
