Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls. We have a brand new number one in the UK & Ireland Poker rankings. Chris Moorman has been ranked first for what seems like an age, but his reign has come to an end thanks to the consistent and brilliant results of Charlie Combes.
Combes, known as “JIZOINT” on PokerStars has not only rose to the top of the UK & Ireland rankings but he is also now ranked in the top 10 of the entire world.
After some super results in recent Super Tuesday tournaments and at the Spring Championship Of Online Poker (SCOOP), Combes continued his remarkable run by winning a Triple Crown of titles as June got underway. A win in the PokerStars $109 NL Hold’em Turbo 1R1A ($37,000) on June 3 was followed up with a pair of wins on June 9 when Combes took down the $350,000 Guaranteed at Full Tilt Poker for $66,500 and he also won the $50,000 Gtd at PartyPoker for an additional $13,593.
If Combes’ form continues in the same vein he is going to take some stopping and a top three spot in the worldwide rankings beckons.
With Combes climbing to number one, Moorman has dropped to second in our leader board and that is a situation that is not going to improve any time soon because Moorman is currently bracelet hunting at the World Series of Poker – as are the majority of the top 10. However, once Moorman gets back onto home soil we would fully expect him to ramp up his volume and attempt to reclaim the number one spot that he has held onto for so long.
Hot on Moorman’s heels is the former Team PokerStars Pro for Ireland, Jude Ainsworth. Now just 15 points behind Moorman, Ainsworth could overtake the Englishman this week depending on which results decay and are worth less points.
Rounding out the top 10 places are Christopher “NigDawG” Brammer, Andrew “stato_1” Hulme, Toby “810ofclubs” Lewis, Sebastian “Seba29072” Saffari, Jon “EMSBas” Spinks, Ross “RLOG” Loggie and Sam “TheSquid” Grafton.
