The Competition Heats Up In The UK & Ireland Rankings

The Competition Heats Up In The UK & Ireland Rankings 0001

The rankings on have The online poker tournament rankings have been updated on and they make very interesting reading indeed. Although Christopher Brammer is still holding onto the coveted number one berth, he faces stiff competition from a whole host of poker’s online stars.

Brammer’s volume dropped off significantly last week due in part to him reaching the final table of the Grosvenor UK Poker Tour Grand Final, where he ultimately finished in ninth place. His results prior to his mini-hiatus from online poker were so fantastic that he still holds a 300-point lead over his nearest rival Marc “dean23price” Wright.

Price always plays an absolute ton of volume and as a result, it is not unusual to find him on a bunch of final tables on any given day. Over the past week, Wright has had some very impressive scores, including one for $8,788.05 for finishing second in the $320 Six-Max on PokerStars, and one for $8,354.25 that he picked up for a third place finish in the $40,000 guaranteed $109 rebuy also on PokerStars.

Hot on the heels of both Brammer and Wright is the man whose name is synonymous with online poker tournaments, Chris “moorman1” Moorman. The Brighton-lad now has close to $8,700,000 in live tournament winnings, a spectacular total that has been helped by his recent blistering form at the virtual felt.

In the past few days, Moorman has won the €100 by-in event on PokerStars.FR for the equivalent of $11,249.30, finished fourth in a $215 turbo on PokerStars for $5,593.50; came third in The Big $55 for a $10,111.50 score and finished second in the $300 buy-in tournament on Full Tilt Poker for $18,487.50. Moorman is finishing 2012 on a real heater and it is not out of the realms of possibility that he could reclaim his number one spot by the time 2012 comes to an end.

Special mentions have to go to Rick “TheClaimeer” Trigg, Rhys “floppinhel” Jones and Stephen “woody1234321” Woodhead who are living proof that consistency in poker really pays off. Week after week they put in impressive results and their climb up the rankings has been a steady one.

Hanging around just outside the top 10 are some really talented players such as Jon “EMSBas” Spinks, David “davidv1213” Vamplew and Paul “badpab2” Foltyn, all of whom are more than capable of breaking into next week’s top 10.
