The latest online poker tournament rankings have been updated at PocketFives.com and once again it is Christopher “NigDawG” Brammer who finds himself at the top of the pile, and by quite some margin too.
Brammer’s volume over the past week has been nonexistent due to him being in Cannes for the World Series of Poker Europe. Those of you who follow the PokerNews Live Reporting team will be aware that Brammer came ever so close to winning the WSOPE Main Event, busting in fifth place for a massive score of €207,648.
The reason Brammer still finds himself at the top of the UK & Ireland rankings is the phenomenal results he put in before jetting off to southern France. On Sept. 30 Brammer had a rather sick day at the virtual felt. He cashed a total of nine times, including a seventh place finish in the $109 Turbo on PokerStars ($2,669.12), a fourth place in the another $109 Turbo on PokerStars ($8,805.00), a third place in the Betfair $100 ($11,516.44) and an outright win in the Bigger $162 ($39,245.52). Amazing stuff.
Hot on Brammer’s heels are a host of super talented players including Marc “dean23price” Wright, who continues to put in some ridiculous volume, Scotland’s Ross “RLOG” Loggie and Mathew “matfrankland” Frankland.
Making a return to the top is Chris “moorman1” Moorman who three outright wins on PokerStars between Oct.5-6 to help boost his leaderboard points tally, whilst Rick “TheClaimeer” Trigg’s consistency at the tables has finally paid off and he makes his first appearance in the top 10 since UK & Ireland PokerNews started this report.

Dropping out of the top 10 this week but still within easy reach of a return are the likes of Phill “Grindation” Mcallister, former European Poker Tour London champion David “david1213” Vamplew and Team PokerStars Pro Jude “j.thaddeus” Ainsworth.
Now that the WSOPE is over and done with, as is EPT San Remo, the online grinders will be back at the virtual felt with renewed vigour, so expect some big changes in the coming weeks.
