The rankings for the United Kingdom and Ireland are refreshed and up-to-date and although Chris Moorman has stayed on top of them, he has a brand new challenger in second place.
Moorman and the majority of the rest of the UK & Ireland’s heroes are currently plying their trade at the live felt of the World Series of Poker so their volume is non-existent. Before jetting off to Las Vegas, Moorman signed off with a second place finish in Full Tilt Poker’s Tyrannosaurus Rex tournament for a $5,470 score.
Should Moorman check this article out he will find that his lead at the top of the standings is just 30 points, which is the smallest lead he has held in recent times. Currently in second place, after an amazing couple of weeks at the virtual felt, is Jude “j.thaddeus” Ainsworth.
In mid-May, Ainsworth finished fourth in the $1,050 No Limit Hold’em event (Event #29 High) of the Spring Championship Of Online Poker before coming seventh in the $019 No Limit Hold’em Wrap Up (Event #44) for an additional $17,510. On the same Sunday as that last score, Ainsworth won the $215 Sunday Supersonic at PokerStars for $58,044 and then had a fourth place finish in the $215 No Limit Hold’em Turbo event for $7,823! We believe Ainsworth I also in Las Vegas so he won’t be able to catch Moorman, but it does give Moorman and the rest of the UK & Ireland online tournament specialists something to think about.
Ainsworth’s meteoric rise towards the top has pushed Christopher “NigDawG” Brammer and Charlie “chaz_man_chaz” Combes into third and fourth place respectively, with Andrew “stato_1” Hulme dropping to a still respectable fifth place.
