In the Spotlight: Looking Up PSC Monte-Carlo Winners Kenney, Schemion
The Hendon Mob database of tournament poker results is a much-consulted site for poker players and fans alike. Among the many rankings available on the site are ongoing lists of most searched players over the last week. Such lists provide quick snapshots of which tournament poker players are currently "in the spotlight" with their profiles being looked at the most.
Here are the most searched players on Hendon Mob over the last seven days as reported by the site this morning, Saturday, May 6:
The just completed PokerStars Championship presented by Monte-Carlo Casino® obviously influenced the look-ups this week over on Hendon Mob, with players who notched results from the series mostly comprising the most searched over the last 7 days.
Fedor Holz (1st) didn't surprise anyone by collecting a couple more cashes in Monaco this week, winning one side event and finishing fourth in the €50,000 Eight Max Shot Clock event. Holz — who spoke with PokerNews this week about the importance of reflection in poker — is already always a much-searched player on the site, and this week he led the list.
Bryn Kenney (2nd) won the 61-entry €100,000 Super High Roller for €1,784,500 to kick off PSC Monte-Carlo, while Daniel Negreanu stayed alive through several days to finish 51st in the €5,300 Main Event won by Raffaele Sorrentino.
Ole Schemion (4th) cashed four times in Monaco, making three final tables and winning the €10,300 Opening Eight Max event. Daniel Colman (5th) final-tabled a side event in Monaco, while Davidi Kitai (6th) made it all of the way to a seventh-place finish in the Main Event.
Erik Seidel (7th) finished third in that aforementioned €50,000 Eight Max Shot Clock event, with winner Adrian Mateos also earning extra searches this week as a result. And Steve O'Dwyer (9th) had a great series as well, final-tabling the €10,300 Opening Eight Max (finishing fourth), the €50K Eight Max (finishing sixth), and the €25,500 Eight Max Shot Clock (finishing fourth), the latter of which was won by Philipp Gruissem.
Last week's most-searched player Salomon Ponte (10th) rounds out the list, with Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier just missing the top 10 after his deep run and 12th-place finish in the PSC Monte-Carlo Main Event.
Hendon Mob also maintains a updated list of players with the biggest increase in unique hits over the previous seven days, a.k.a. the "Top Movers." Here's how that list appears this morning:
Again, the "Top Movers" list is dominated by players finding success in Monte-Carlo.
Looking at players not discussed above, Romain Nardin was searched a lot as the chip leader late in the PSC Monte-Carlo Main Event before he finally went out in eighth place. Similarly Viacheslav Buldygin got some attention for making it all of the way to runner-up versus Kenney in the €100K Super High Roller.
Daniel Dvoress was another player with a number of strong performances in Monaco, final-tabling three different high roller events while cashing in a fourth and making the money in the Main Event as well.
Finally, there was an increase in searches of Luke Schwartz's page this week after his cash in the PSC Monte-Carlo Main Event and his challenge to Doug Polk to a heads-up duel in Las Vegas this summer.
