Rick Trigg Returns to the UK Online Poker Rankings Top 10

Sheffield-based pro Rick “TheClaimeer” Trigg returns to the Top 10 of the UK online poker rankings after a fanastic run of form that also resulted in his winning the first Triple Crown of his career.

Trigg has been putting in plenty of volume at the virtual felt and it shows in his results. On January 20, Trigg won the PokerStars Big $109 for $21,556 then two days later took down the Full Tilt Poker Turbo Hundo for an additional $3,480, before completing a Triple Crown of online titles when he won the Sunday Supersonic on PokerStars French site.

Sandwiched between those victories were some impressive results. These near misses include:

  • 3rd place in the €100 1R1A for $7,895
  • 3rd place in the PokerStars $265 Knockout for $4,042
  • 3rd place the PokerStars Nightly Fifty Grand for $7,166
  • 2nd place in the Sunday Six-Max at PokerStars for $18,564
  • 3rd place in the $109 NL Hold’em at PokerStars for $4,274

Top bombing, sir.

The only other change to the shape of the UK Top 10 was Sebastian Saffari leapfrogging Rhys Jones into sixth place.

Clayton “Drk Confdant” Mooney Is Back in the Top 10

Like the UK rankings, there was little change in the Irish standings this week, with the Top 10 virtually unchanged. The only difference from last week’s leader board is the return of Clayton “Drk Confdant” Mooney – he is in ninth place – thanks in part to a deep run in the PokerStars Hot $75 and a fourth place finish in the $25 NL Hold’em Hyper-Turbo, also at PokerStars.

With many of the UK & Ireland’s grinders back and rested from the PCA and with scores of them returning from the European Poker Tour Deauville Main Event, we would expect plenty of action in the next seven days; that is unless every man and his dog decides to make the long trip to Australia for the 2014 Aussie Millions.
