  2. 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.

The Chilean racked up 4,026 PLB Points during the month, beating second place Yuri Martins by 47 points.

On September 24, the Chile poker community member finished second in a WCOOP $215 NLHE Re-Entry Big Antes tournament for $59,000 and 465 PLB Points, good for 15% of his cash total for the month. One day before his WCOOP runner-up finish, he took third in the PokerStars $109 Rebuy for $8,000. One day before that, he turned in his largest cash of the month by winning a WCOOP $215 NLHE Turbo Knockout for $101,000 officially and a rousing 802 PLB Points. On September 21, Fierro finished second in an OPS event for $19,000, continuing to excel in major online poker series. His final five-figure payday of September came on the 14th, when he won the PokerStars $55 Rebuy and earned $14,000. This is Fierro's second Monthly PLB title. The first came in April 2010 and was good for 3,448 PLB Points. It's also the second Monthly PLB title for Chile, which is tied for the seventh highest number of Monthly PLB titles by any country at two. Congrats to Fierro on his second Monthly PLB title!

This is Fierro's second stint at #1 in the PocketFives Rankings, snapping Martins' three-week reign.

PocketFivers will love playing in the site's €1 million guaranteed iPOPS series, which runs through November 9. Visit William Hill today! --- Fierro is closing in on $7 million in online tournament winnings and currently has the ninth highest cash total of anyone on PocketFives. Martins, meanwhile, finished second in the WCOOP Main Event in late September for a massive payday and has a pair of five-figure scores since then. London's Vicente Delgado Zamorano (pictured), or vicenfish, rose from #11 to #7 in the world this week thanks to a runner-up finish in last week's Super Tuesday for a commanding $81,000. He is the top-ranked player in London and #2 in the UK. Also cracking the top 10 this week was jbrown8777, who moved up from #22 to #8. He won the Super Tuesday the week vicenfish took second and came away with a $111,000 payday.

He won the Sunday Storm on October 19 for $31,000 officially and is the #5 player in Costa Rica. Two spots behind PlayaPlz on PocketFives is EmilMaTTsson, who is ranked #65.

  5. Congrats, Brazil. For the first time in a year, a player from your country is #1 in the PocketFives Poker Rankings. This time, it's Yuri Martins (pictured), who entered his poker site names at the beginning of October and consequently shot all the way to the top of the worldwide leaderboard. Martins was the second-place finisher in the PokerStars WCOOP Main Event for $708,000 after a six-way chop and raked in a whopping 2,159 PLB Points. The same day, he took down the site's Bigger $162 for another $51,000 and $27 NLHE Turbo Knockout for nearly $10,000. Not a bad day at the office. All told, Martins is up to $4.3 million in online tournament scores and is one of 109 PocketFivers with PLB scores from the Brazilian city of Curitiba. He is the first player from Brazil to grace the top of the Rankings since pessagno dominated the leaderboard for an eight-week span that ended in October 2013. We had two other new entrants into the top 10 this week. The first was Patrick pleno1Leonard (pictured), who moved up eight spots to #7. He has turned in a stellar last few days that included winning the PokerStars.fr Monday Night on Stars for $13,000 and taking third in both the Full Tilt Sunday Major and PokerStars Bigger $55 for a combined $38,000. Leonard was the #1 ranked player on PocketFives as recently as August. The second new entrant into the top 10 was Fresh_Oo_D, who rose six spots to #10. He final tabled a WCOOP HORSE event last month for $29,000 and has a half-dozen online tournament wins since September 23, bringing his lifetime total to 137. He is just a few thousand dollars shy of hitting $3 million in scores. Brazil's keyhell rose 24 spots in the Rankings to #45 after wins in the PokerStars Big $162 and Big $55 for over $30,000 total. He just passed $1 million in career online tournament winnings and final tabled the PokerStars Sunday Million one year ago for $76,000. Swedish online poker player C Darwin2moved up from #72 to #51 on the strength of a victory in the PokerStars $109 Cubed over the weekend for $20,000 and 325 PLB Points. He took second in the 888 Poker Mega Deep on Sunday for another $19,000 after the tournament drew 648 entrants. Here are the top 10 players in the PocketFives Rankings this week along with the PLB score for each: 1. Yuri Martins - 8,090 points 2. PokerKaiser - 7,849 points 3. p0cket00 - 7,444 points 4. CrownUpGuy - 7,302 points 5. r4ndomr4gs - 7,299 points 6. European - 7,236 points 7. pleno1- 7,171 points 8. MAMOHT_T - 7,101 points 9. lena900 - 6,940 points 10.

  6. It's Wednesday, which means the PocketFives Rankingshave been updated. On top for the fourth straight week is Brazil's Yuri Martins, who is enjoying the longest stint at the top of the Rankings for any PocketFiver since September and the third longest streak since April. Martins has 7,462 PLB Points, 136 more than the second place player in the Rankings, p0cket00 (pictured). This Canadian player finished second in a $215 No Limit Hold'em Turbo on PokerStars one day ago for $7,000 and 142 PLB Points, meaning, all else equal, he's another score of equivalent value away from being the #1 player worldwide on PocketFives. We'll have to wait until next Wednesday to see if he succeeds. There were no new entrants into the top 10 worldwide this week. Outside of the top 10, Alex Lynskey, known as lynskey99on PocketFives, moved up from #37 to #19 on the strength of a win in the PokerStars Sunday Six-Max over the weekend for $25,000 and a solid 377 PLB Points. Lynskey is up to $1.4 million in tracked MTT scores and is one spot shy of his all-time high worldwide. He is the top-ranked PocketFiver in Australia. One of the biggest jumps of the week inside the top 100 belonged to Russia's MatveichukR (pictured), who moved up 26 spots to settle at #56. He won the PokerStars Big $55 on the third day of 2015 for $21,000 and his 231st career tracked win. MatveichukR, who is celebrating his fifth anniversary of signing up for PocketFives on Wednesday, has $3.6 million in winnings and is five spots shy of his all-time high in the Rankings. Also climbing high was former #4 ranked Shyam s_dot111 Srinivasan, who moved up from #99 to #58, or 41 spots. He has been on a tear since 2015 began, winning the PokerStars $109 Quad once and $109 Rebuy twice for a total of almost $25,000. This follows a six-week stretch without a tracked win, so he has certainly made up for lost time. Srinivasan is the #10 ranked player in Canada and #5 in Toronto. Here are the top 10 players in the PocketFives Rankings this week along with the PLB score for each: 1. Yuri Martins - 7,462 points 2. p0cket00 - 7,306 points 3. Big Huni - 7,170 points 4. joaomathias - 7,143 points 5. PokerKaiser - 7,123 points 6. pleno1 - 7,052 points 7. r4ndomr4gs - 6,833 points 8. Ssick_one - 6,631 points 9. Fresh_Oo_D - 6,630 points 10.

  7. We'll start off this week's PocketFives Rankings Update by wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas! No matter what your plans are, we hope you have a wonderful day! Now, let's get to the business at hand. The PocketFives Rankingswere recalculated on Wednesday and Yuri Martins is once again your top-ranked player. He has over 600 PLB Points more than second place to boot, meaning we'd expect to see him at #1 again next week. We had two returning entrants to the top 10 worldwide this week: Roman RomeoproRomanovskyi (pictured) and Jimmy JMolloy Molloy. We'll start with Romanovskyi, who moved up eight spots in the Rankings to #9. He has had a solid last week, taking third in the Sunday Warm-Up over the weekend for $52,000 officially and winning two tournaments in the last two days to bring his career total to 192. Romanovskyi just passed $3 million in tracked scores on PokerStars alone and was ranked as high as #6 on PocketFives earlier this year. He is the top-ranked Ukrainian online poker player and has almost a half-million dollars in live scores, according to the Hendon Mob. Molloy (pictured) moved up two spots in the Rankings to settle at #10, two spots off his all-time high. He won the PokerStars $109 Rebuy on Tuesday for almost $10,000 and took second in the Full Tilt Super Sized Sunday over the weekend for $18,000. Molloy has $3.5 million in career online tournament winnings and is #2 in Canada. One of the biggest jumps of the week inside the top 100 went to StrungOut1, who went from #51 to #27 on the strength of a victory in the PokerStars Bigger $55 for $39,000 over the weekend. This is the highest StrungOut1, who joined PocketFives in 2006, has ever been ranked on our site. Finally, we wanted to highlight Ami UhhMee Barer, who reentered the top 100 worldwide at #56. He won the Bigger $109 on Sunday for $52,000 after a three-week hiatus from the virtual felts. Barer was ranked as high as #3 in the world in 2011 and has $6.5 million in tracked scores, the 15th highest total of anyone on PocketFives. Here are the top 10 players in the Rankings this week along with the PLB score for each: 1. Yuri Martins - 8,327 points 2. CrownUpGuy - 7,691 points 3. pleno1 - 7,427 points 4. p0cket00 - 7,320 points 5. joaomathias - 7,237 points 6. PokerKaiser - 6,920 points 7. Big Huni - 6,879 points 8. r4ndomr4gs - 6,853 points 9. Romeopro- 6,663 points 10. JMolloy- 6,653 points Congrats to all of our ranked players. Want the latest poker headlines and interviews? Follow PocketFives on Twitterand Like PocketFives on Facebook.

  8. For the fifth straight week, Brazil's Yuri Martins (pictured) is the #1 player in the PocketFives Online Poker Rankings. He ascended to the throne on December 17 and hasn't looked back since. The man they call theNERDguyon PokerStars is up to $4.5 million in tracked online tournament cashes and showing no signs of slowing down. In fact, Brazilians are #1 and #2 in the Rankings this week. Martins hasn't recorded a five-figure cash since he became our #1 player, but on December 14, he scored in a big way by taking down the PokerStars Knockout Week Main Event for a blistering $76,000 and over 707 PLB Points, the metric used to determine the Rankings. He has recorded two smaller wins since then, raising his career total to 129. Likely due to many poker players being camped out at the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure in the Bahamas and focusing on live poker, there was little movement at the top of the Rankings this week. Outside of the top 10, Kevin ImaLuckSac MacPhee rose 16 spots to land at #30 on the strength of three five-figure cashes in January, including a final table in the Sunday 500 for $15,000 over the weekend. After final tabling the Sunday Second Chance over the weekend for $24,000 and 263 PLB Points, Cyprus' daskalos (pictured) moved up 19 spots to settle at #47. He has $2.2 million in career online tournament winnings and is the top-ranked poker player in Cyprus. The biggest jump inside the top 100 went to Denmark's x_zola25, who climbed 29 spots and can be found at #62 in the world. He won the PokerStars $109 Rebuy two days ago for $7,500 and has four wins already this month, two of which came PartyPoker. This is his highest position ever in the Rankings and he is the #1 player in Denmark. Finally this week, we wanted to single out Belarus' OMGitshunt, who reentered the top 100 at #74. He has been a one-man wrecking crew since 2015 began, turning in four wins, including the Big $162 and $109 Rebuy on PokerStars for $30,000 combined. He is about to break $3.5 million in career scores and resides in Minsk. Here are the top 10 players in the Rankings this week along with the PLB score for each: 1. Yuri Martins - 7,415 points 2. joaomathias - 7,344 points 3. p0cket00 - 7,240 points 4. PokerKaiser - 7,207 points 5. Big Huni - 7,066 points 6. pleno1 - 7,051 points 7. r4ndomr4gs - 6,851 points 8. CrownUpGuy - 6,573 points 9. Fresh_Oo_D - 6,521 points 10. Ssick_one - 6,478 points Congrats to all of our ranked players! Want the latest poker headlines and interviews?

  9. It's Wednesday, which means the PocketFives Online Poker Rankingshave been recalculated. This week, we have a new #1 player in the world, Yuri Martins (pictured). The Brazilian has a brisk 8,433 PLB Points, which represents a commanding 742-point lead over second place. Martins was last ranked #1 in October and this is his second stint at the top. Martins staked out his claim to be #1 thanks to a win in the PokerStarsKnockout Week Main Event on December 14 for $76,000 officially and over 700 PLB Points. Martins was the only PocketFiver at the six-handed final table and the tournament drew 5,000 entrants. He plays as theNERDguyon PokerStars, where he has almost $4 million in career online tournament winnings. Last week's #1, Austria's CrownUpGuy, dropped one spot to #2 in the world. He won the Sunday 500 last month to send his PLB score flying high and is up to $2.7 million in career online tournament winnings. CrownUpGuy had been enjoying his first stint at #1, but we're pretty confident we'll see him back at the top in the future. There wasn't a ton of movement overall in the Rankings this week. One of the biggest jumps inside the top 100 belonged to Sweden's Smeckten(pictured), who rose 19 spots to settle at #40. He has three tournament wins in the last six days – the PokerStars.fr Thursday Full KO, PokerStars Hot $16.50, and Full Tilt Turbo Hundo – for over $16,000 combined. Canada's Mark dipthrong Herm, who won the FTOPS XXVII leaderboard and two FTOPS jerseys, rose 13 spots to #41 in the PocketFives Rankings. Herm has recorded a rock solid eight wins since December began: FTOPS Event #5 for $18,000 PokerStars $5.50R NL Omaha H/L for $315 FTOPS Event #12 for $17,000 PokerStars $55 Saturday PLO for $2,900 PokerStars $55 NLHE KO for $5,200 Full Tilt Benjamin for $3,700 PokerStars $109R for $10,000 PokerStars $22 Cubed for $6,400 Finally this week, we wanted to single out London's lasagnaaammm, who moved up 24 spots thanks to a win in the PokerStars Sunday 500 over the weekend. He's sitting with $5 million in combined live and online tournament winnings and can be found at #57 in the world. Here are the top 10 players in the PocketFives Rankings this week along with the PLB score for each: 1. Yuri Martins- 8,433 points 2. CrownUpGuy- 7,691 points 3. p0cket00- 7,502 points 4. PokerKaiser- 7,389 points 5. pleno1- 7,177 points 6. Big Huni - 7,005 points 7. joaomathias- 6,980 points 8. r4ndomr4gs- 6,978 points 9. vicenfish- 6,691 points 10.

  10. A five-week run at the top of the PocketFives Poker Rankingsby Yuri Martinscame to an end on Wednesday, as joaomathias(pictured) claimed the #1 spot for the first time ever. The Brazilian finished third in the PokerStars Big $109 in recent days for $12,000. In January alone, he has 68 tracked online MTT scores for $146,000 combined, and we're only 21 days in. Interestingly, joaomathias and Yuri Martins are both Brazilian. joaomathias has a razor-thin 65-PLB Point edge over Yuri Martins in the Rankings, so we could see another changing of the guard next week. Yuri Martins' five-week reign at the top was the longest by any PocketFiver in four months. Hungary's Ssick_onemoved up three spots to #7 in the world, his all-time high, thanks to a victory in the 888 PokerTurbo Mega Deep for $20,000 and 279 PLB Points. He's had a productive January and also won the Full TiltTurbo Multi-Hundo for $15,000. You can find him playing as imyurfriendon many of the world's largest online poker sites like Winamax and 888. After stumbling a bit in recent weeks, Finland's European was back in the top 10, jumping five spots to #8. He has three tracked wins already this month, including a $22,000 hit for taking down the Big $109 on January 17. The same day that the Rankings were updated on January 21, he hit $2 million in career online tournament winnings. There are three Swedes in the top 15 of the Rankings; moving up the most of any of them was Smeckten(pictured), who landed at #14, up seven spots. He's one day removed from a win in the PokerStars $215 NLHE Turbo for $10,000 and finished second in the PartyPoker $100,000 Guaranteed over the weekend for $17,000. Smeckten is just a couple thousand dollars shy of $3 million in online tournament winnings. Finally this week, we wanted to single out Norway's prebzzz, who entered his screen names on January 17 and debuted at #26 worldwide, his highest position ever. On January 13, prebzzz final tabled the PokerStars Super Tuesday and cashed for $55,000, his largest tournament score to date. Here are the top 10 players worldwide in the Rankings this week, along with the PLB score for each: 1. joaomathias- 7,381 points 2. Yuri Martins - 7,316 points 3. PokerKaiser - 7,181 points 4.

  11. [caption width="450"] Yuri Martins opened 2015 as the #1 ranked player[/caption] There were nine players who laid claim to the title of #1 in the PocketFives Rankingsin 2015. Plus, there were 14 lead changes during the year, which means there was plenty of movement atop of the Rankings. Let's take a look back at the #1 ranked players of 2015. 2015 began with Brazil's Yuri Martins ranked #1. He had assumed the role on December 27, 2014 and was the top dog until January 21, 2015, or five weeks. Martins won a WCOOP bracelet in September in a $1,050 Pot Limit Omaha High-Low event. Another Brazilian, Joao joaomathiasMathias, bumped his fellow countryman from the #1 spot on January 21. He held down the fort for one week until January 28 when Chris Big HuniHunichen became the #1 ranked online poker player in the world. Hunichen won the PokerStars Super Tuesday around the same time and was ranked #1 on PocketFives for five weeks. It was the only time Hunichen has been ranked #1. On March 5, Nico PokerKaiserFierro and Fedor CrownUpGuyHolz began taking turns at #1. Fierro was #1 for one week before Holz knocked him out, also for a week. Then, Fierro reclaimed the #1 spot before Holz stole it back on March 25. Fierro promptly became the top-ranked player for three weeks until April 22. Fierro won the 888 Mega Deep on March 22 and April 19 to solidify his spot atop the Rankings. [caption width="640"] Nico Fierro spent 21 weeks at #1 in 2015[/caption] On April 25, norfair18 became #1 on PocketFives for the first time in his career. He held the title for two weeks on the strength of a Super Tuesday runner-up finish and Million Dollar Sunday final table before ceding the top spot to Fierro on May 5. Fierro then spent 16 weeks at #1, or almost four months, the longest reign of anyone in 2015. During his run, Fierro took down an OPS event and the 888 Mega Deep. He also earned three PocketFives Triple Crowns. All told, Fierro spent 21 weeks at #1 in 2015, the most of anyone. On August 26, Aaron aguskb Gustavson bucked Fierro from the top spot for a week, the first and only time he has been ranked #1. Gustavson final tabled the Super Tuesday three times in 2015, the best showing of which was a second place finish in June for $52,000. Gustavson is currently ranked 18th in the world on PocketFives. [caption width="450"] Aaron Gustavson was ranked #1 for one week[/caption] One week after Gustavson became #1, StrungOut1assumed the role, also for a week. He won the Sunday Million a few days before becoming #1, a cash worth almost $150,000. Gustavson then retook the #1 spot for a week before Sweden's eisenhower1 became #1 on September 30 and closed out the year on top. eisenhower1 has a PLB score of 7,313 points, only 27 ahead of the second-ranked player, so we could see a changing of the guard in the first week of 2016 when the Rankings are recalculated on Wednesday. If you're a fan of lists, here were the top-ranked PocketFivers of 2015: eisenhower1 September 30, 2015 to Today aguskb September 9, 2015 to September 30, 2015 StrungOut1 September 2, 2015 to September 9, 2015 aguskb August 26, 2015 to September 2, 2015 PokerKaiser May 6, 2015 to August 26, 2015 norfair18 April 22, 2015 to May 6, 2015 PokerKaiser April 1, 2015 to April 22, 2015 CrownUpGuy March 25, 2015 to April 1, 2015 PokerKaiser March 18, 2015 to March 25, 2015 CrownUpGuy March 11, 2015 to March 18, 2015 PokerKaiser March 4, 2015 to March 11, 2015 Big Huni January 28, 2015 to March 4, 2015 joaomathias January 21, 2015 to January 28, 2015 Yuri Martins December 17, 2014 to January 21, 2015
  12. There were 18 events in action on the opening day of the PokerStars 2018 World Championship of Online Poker, but only three played down to a winner and one of those winners decided to make a little bit of history. 'TheDegenFund' beat out 875 other players to win Event #6 High ($530 Eight Max, Turbo No Limit Hold'em) for a $61,597.15 prize after the final three players made a deal. 'FloweerBoy' earned $51,349.88 for finishing in the runner-up spot while third place finisher 'TimThompson' actually earned a little bit more, $54,257.39 thanks to the chop. The final table also featured Shawn Buchanan and Andreas Berggren. As for that little bit of history, in 2015, 'TheDegenFund' won the opening event of the Spring Championship of Online Poker. Lithuanian 'Gintaras2192' topped the 5,370-player field in Event #6 Medium ($55 Eight Max, Turbo No Limit Hold'em) to earn $38,189.04. Russia's 'ArturMarti' finished in second place for $26,797.29 while Brazil's Yuri 'theNERDguy' Martins had to settle for $18,805.49 as the third-place finisher. Event #6 Low ($5.50 Eight Max, Turbo No Limit Hold'em) drew 12,106 players with 'GStronda' of Brazil walking away with $7,643.02 and his first WCOOP title. 'Nrocky777' and 'MECMAR_I' banked $5,442.19 and $3,879.38 respectively for their second and third place finish.

  13. After Day 5 of the 2019 World Series of Poker Main Event, just 106 players remain in contention for the $10 million top prize. Antonio Esfandiari is among them, as is Sam Greenwood, Alex Foxen, and former PocketFives #1 Chris Hunichen, but it's Timothy Su leading the way. Newcomer Su in the Lead Su bagged 19.235 million in chips and is hands down making the biggest splash of his poker career. Not only has Su never cashed in the WSOP Main Event before, but he’s never played it. He’s a software engineer by trade, not a professional poker player. Prior to the 2019 WSOP Main Event, Su had just three cashes on record and a combined $2,467 in live tournament earnings. His largest cash to date was for $1,080. He did place in the money in the $400 Colossus at the 2019 WSOP, but the $927 that he earned for his 814th-place finish is a far cry from the $59,295 he’s guaranteed. Although that’s what Su is guaranteed, he’s favored to earn a lot more due to his towering chip position. Immediately following up Su on the leaderboard at the conclusion of Day 5 were Greenwood (11.95 million), Duey Duong (11.765 million), Warwick Mirzikinian (11.43 million), and Luke Graham (11.28 million). Top 10 Chip Counts Timothy Su - 19,235,000 Sam Greenwood - 11,950,000 Duey Duong - 11,765,000 Warwick Mirzikinian - 11,430,000 Luke Graham - 11,280,000 Nicholas Marchington - 10,835,000 Milos Skrbic - 10,715,000 Romain Lewis - 10,600,000 Laurids Nielsen - 9,955,000 Ian Pelz - 9,635,000 [caption id="attachment_625562" align="aligncenter" width="903"] Antonio Esfandiari (left) and Garry Gates both advanced to Day 6 in the 2019 WSOP Main Event[/caption] Esfandiari "Feels Great" Reaching Day 6 Antonio Esfandiari has won a lot in his career. He has more than $27.7 million in live tournament earnings and has won three WSOP gold bracelets. His best result in the WSOP Main Event came in 2009 when he took 24th for $352,832. Outside of that result, Esfandiari has never finished in the top 150 of the WSOP Main Event. That’s where he finds himself this year and he’ll be headed to Day 6 with 6.63 million in chips. "It feels great," Esfandiari told PocketFives. "I think I’ve only made it to Day 6 one time and that was a long time ago, so to come back and have a chance at making the final table, it feels pretty good." Hunichen and Dzivielevski Representing Former PocketFives #1 Joining Esfandiari on the Day 6 run will be a couple of former PocketFives #1 players, Hunichen and Yuri Dzivielevski. Hunichen bagged 6.28 million, with Dzivielevski coming in at 3.53 million. Hunichen received a nice boost to his stWSOPack when start-of-day chip leader and 888poker qualifier Dean Morrone five-bet shoved into him with the [poker card="As"][poker card="9d"]. Hunichen was waiting with the [poker card="Kc"][poker card="Kd"]after he had four-bet and made the call. An ace flop, but a king also flopped, and Morrone was eliminated as the board ran out [poker card="Ad"][poker card="Kh"][poker card="4s][poker card="5h"][poker card="8c"]. Hunichen did lose some chips towards the end of the night when Foxen doubled through him, but he was still able to bag a very healthy stack for Thursday. Foxen bagged 2.655 million for Day 6. Down To Four from Pennsylvania Pennsylvania online poker is just about ready to go. It’s been legalized and the launch date is coming up soon. When things get up and running, four players left in the field of the 2019 WSOP Main Event are going to have some extra money to deposit thanks to deep runs and could even become representatives of PA online poker rooms. Chad Power is the one with the most chips for Day 6 at 7.48 million, and then it’s Thomas Parkes with 7.31 million. Kenny Smaron has 2.505 million and Jake Schindler has 1.39 million. Former NFL Players Seymour and Stocz Bow Out Starting Day 5 was a group of 354 players. Plenty of them hit the rail on the way to 106, including former NFL players Richard Seymour and Eric Stocz. Seymour and Stocz started at the same table and it was Stocz to bust first when his pocket tens couldn’t hold up against the king-ten of Chance Kornuth for a 347th-place finish. Seymour made it a bit deeper but ultimately came to the same fate. Seymour’s exit happened in 131st place. He was all in against Zhen Cai and Anuj Agarwal on the same hand. Seymour had the [poker card="Kh"][poker card="4d"], Cai had the [poker card="Qd"][poker card="Qh"], and Agarwal had the [poker card="Ad"][poker card="3d"]. The flop came Seymour the lead with the [poker card="Kc"][poker card="6h"][poker card="2d"] falling, but the turn was the [poker card="Qs"] to give the hand to Cai. The [poker card="Ks"] on the river meant nothing. Seymour’s run earned him $59,295. Also hitting the rail on Day 5 were Scott Bohlman (146th - $59,295), Mike Matusow (199th - $50,855), Matt Glantz (205th - $50,855), Matt Stout (217th - $50,855), and Allen Kessler (320th - $38,240). Jill Bryant was this year’s last woman standing in the WSOP Main Event. The Illinois native went out in the late stages of Day 5 with a 116th-place exit. She earned $59,295 for the result to add to the near $200,000 in live tournament earnings she had entering the event. Day 6 of the 2019 WSOP Main Event starts at 12 pm PT on Thursday, July 11 at the Rio All-Suites Hotel & Casino.
  14. The 2019 World Series of Poker Main Event went from 1,286 players down to 354 on Tuesday Those left are deep in the money and guaranteed $34,845, and it’s Dean Morrone holding the chip lead entering Day 5. Former NFL star Richard Seymour was one of the big stacks to advance. Morrone Leads the Way Morrone is a Canadian player and a qualifier from 888poker. He’s making his first career WSOP cash with his run in this year’s WSOP Main Event and it’s also his largest live tournament score to date as he entered the tournament with just $10,138 in live earnings. Morrone entered Day 4 with 365,000 before he went on to finish with 4.98 million and the lead. Other big stacks in the group behind Morrone on the leaderboard were Lars Bonding (4.04 million), Michael Messick (3.925 million), Warwick Mirzikinian (3.9 million), and Henrik Hecklen (3.862 million) to round out the top five. Morrone’s fellow 888poker qualifier Mihai Manole finished the day with a very healthy 3.781 million. Top 10 Chip Counts Dean Morrone - 4,980,000 Lars Bonding - 4,040,000 Michael Messick - 3,925,000 Warwick Mirzikinian - 3,900,000 Henrik Hecklen - 3,862,000 Mihai Manole - 3,781,000 Robert Heidorn - 3,700,000 Sean Mills - 3,692,000 Christopher Wynkoop - 3,563,000 Andrew Brokos - 3,518,000 Former NFL Star Richard Seymour On the Rush Former NFL star and three-time Super Bowl champion Richard Seymour was among those to advance to Day 5. He spoke with The Fives Poker Podcast at the end of Day 3 about his sixth time playing the WSOP Main Event being a charm and things only got sweeter on Tuesday. Seymour came into the day with 275,000 and quickly got his stack up to 400,000. It wasn’t long before he reached 1 million in chips and then the progression only continued after he was moved to one of the secondary features tables. Seymour bagged up 2.75 million in chips, but he wasn’t the only former NFL player to move on. Eric Stocz, who spent time in the NFL with the Detroit Lions, reached the money in the WSOP Main Event for the second time in his poker career. He’s already outperformed the 402nd-place finish he netted in 2011 that earned him $30,974 and will only be looking for more. Stocz bagged 350,000 for Day 5. Former PocketFives #1 Players Performing Well A handful of former PocketFives #1 players are performing well and have advanced to Day 4 of the 2019 WSOP Main Event. Fabrizio Gonzalez bagged 2.916 million, Chris Hunichen finished with 2.617 million, and Yuri Dzivielevski ended with 1.79 million. Hunichen bagged those chips despite losing one of the biggest pots of the tournament so far. He got involved in a big one with David Guay and Guay flopped a set of tens against Hunichen’s pocket kings. The hand resulted in a full double for Guay and took a dent of about 1.2 million out of Hunichen’s stack. Eight from Pennsylvania Still Alive Pennsylvania online poker has been legalized and the launch date is coming up soon. When sites do go live there will be a handful of players with some extra money to deposit thanks to deep runs in this WSOP Main Event. Eight players from Pennsylvania remain, with Thomas Parkes of Alburtis finishing Day 4 with the most chips at 3.172 million. Pittsburgh’s Chad Power is next with 2.78 million, and then it’s Matthew Sabia (1.81 million), Kenneth Smaron (1.806 million), Edward Pham (1.43 million), Jake Schindler (1.168 million), Donald Dombach (799,000), and Matt Glantz (690,000). Yoon, Esfandiari, Cheong Among Bracelet Winners Remaining In addition to all the names that have been mentioned, Brian Yoon (2.622 million), Antonio Esfandiari (2.583 million), Craig McCorkell (2.5 million), Chris Wallace (1.98 million), and Joseph Cheong (1.958 million) represent some of the WSOP gold bracelet winners still in the field. Yoon and Esfandiari are both three-time gold bracelet winners who have had some deep runs in the WSOP Main Event before. Yoon has finished in the top 60 on three separate occasions (2018, 2016, and 2011), and Esfandiari finished 24th in 2009. McCorkell took 13th in 2014, and Wallace finished 32nd in 2017. We also know very much about Cheong’s third-place finish behind Jonathan Duhamel and John Racener in 2010 that earned him $4.13 million. All Former Main Event Champs Gone Of course, not every player could advance. Three former WSOP Main Event champions began the day, with Johnny Chan, Chris Moneymaker, and Qui Nguyen still in the field, but all three of them busted out on Day 4. Moneymaker finished 687th for $20,200, Chan took 560th for $24,560, and Nguyen went out 455th for $30,780. Nguyen’s bust came when he got the last of his chips in with pocket fives only to lose out to an opponent’s two sixes. With no former WSOP Main Event champions in the field, we will see a brand new winner in 2019. Others to bust on Day 4 were Ricky Guan (362nd - $34,845), Scott Lazar (388th - $34,845), Jean-Robert Bellande (415th - $30,780), Bryan Campanello (435th - $30,780), Josh Arieh (485th - $27,390), Adam Owen (570th - $24,560), and Cliff Josephy (759th - $20,200). Day 5 of the 2019 WSOP Main Event starts at 12 pm PT on Wednesday, July 10 at the Rio All-Suites Hotel & Casino.
