Moorman Continues To Crush; Trigg Up To Fifth in the UK Rankings

Moorman Continues To Crush; Trigg Up To Fifth in the UK Rankings 0001

It is a case of business as usual in the UK online poker rankings with the top 10 players remaining the same as last week, with the only alterations to the standings being Jareth East climbing to third place and Sheffield lad Rick Trigg continuing his northerly march to secure fifth place in the table.

It will not come as a surprise when I tell you that current number one Chris Moorman has continued to crush all that dare – or are stupid enough – to stand before him. Among Moorman’s achievements this week are:

  • 3rd in the Full Tilt Poker $1k Saturday for $16,510
  • 1st in the Full Tilt Poker Triceratops for $4,664
  • 4th in a $109 NL Hold’em at PokerStars for $3,377
  • 5th in the Sunday Mulligan at Full Tilt Poker for $4,326
  • 1st in the PokerStars.FR Hot €50 for $4,234
  • 3rd in the PokerStars $109 NL Hold’em 2x Chance for $2,649

Trigg’s ability to put in ridiculous hours at the felt continues to pay dividends and he has a list of recent cashes as long as my arm. The two largest of these cashes weigh in at $4,329 and $3,357 and were for finishing second in the Full Tilt Poker Three For Thursday and the partypoker $30,000 guaranteed.

Honourable mentions have to go to Toby “810ofclubs” Lewis for his fourth place in the $109 NL Hold’em Turbo 1R1A that netted him $10,450; to Ben “jenbizzle” Jones for his 6th place in the PokerStars Sunday 2nd Chance ($11,566 score), and to Phill “bergeroo” Huxley who came close to binking a fourth PocketFives.com Triple Crown.

Last but not least, a congratulations / commiserations* to Marcin Milde for his third place finish in the Ongame $500 buy-in last night that bagged the Leeds lad $5,288.69 and to Jonathan “peanut172” Peacock for his third place finish in the Titan Poker Sunday Special for $19,579.
