We did not think it would take long for Chris Brammer to get his grind back on and start terrorising his opponents at the virtual felt and it seems out feelings were correct because he has reclaimed the number one spot in the UK & Ireland Poker Rankings.
Brammer has shot up the table this week and finds himself sat atop of the leaderboard that he had made his own for so long. Over th past few weeks Brammer has been back to his brilliant best and has a number of large scores including one for $6,862.67 for his second place in the $55 Turbo $20,000 guaranteed on PokerStars, a second place in the $109 NLHE turbo on PokerStars that netted him $12,636 and he had another five figure score that topped the scales at $19,514.25 for finishing second in the $109 rebuy also on PokerStars.
Dropping to second place in the rankings is the controversial figure of Marc “dean23price” Wright although he is only 52.5 points behind and that is just one deep finish away. With the volume that Wright puts in on a daily basis it would not be a surprise to see the lead change several times over the next week so Brammer cannot afford to rest on his laurels.
Ross “RLOG” Loggie has also climbed up the standings and is now in third spot, an also has over 6,000 points. Loggie has had a great last seven days with a number of large cashes, one topping the scales at $6,339.50 that he was awarded for finishing second to Russell “rdcrsn” Carson in the $109 2R1A on PokerStars and the other at $20,090.70 for winning the $55 rebuy again on PokerStars. If he keeps this form up, Loggie will definitely be vying for that number one spot next week.
Rouding out the top ten are Mat “matfrankland” Frankland, Paul “badpab2” Foltyn, the first of two Irishmen in Nelius “danceofthefdead” Foley, Sam “The Squid” Grafton, Phill “Grindation” Mcallister, former EPT London champion David “davidv1213” Vamplew and Team PokerStars Pro Jude Ainsworth.
