Luke Reeves and Magnus Martin Continue To Climb the UK Rankings
Luke Reeves is better-known by his online alias “Bit2Easy,” a moniker that seems to be quite apt judging by Reeves recent results. The Manchester-based pro has climbed five places to 14th in the latest UK online poker rankings, provided by our friends at PocketFives.com.
Two of Reeves’ biggest results of the past week weigh in at a combined $33,404. Reeves won the $51 NL Hold’em Hyper-Turbo at PokerStars for $7,611 and followed that up with a third place in the 888poker Whale tournament the next night for a $25,793 addition to his bankroll; that result happens to be Reeves’ third largest of his career so far.
Reeves has also had a series of near misses of late including a 4th place finish in the PokerStars $22 rebuy 6-Max, a 5th place in The Big €100 at PokerStars’ French site and an 11th place in Full Tilt Poker’s The Benjamin. Had Reeves had a little more luck in those events, he could have been banging on the door of a top 10 ranking.
Other climbers within the top 20 include Magnus “Giffordonian” Martin and Matas “bebaimis777” Cimbolas, the latter boosting his points tally by almost 150 points by winning the PokerStars $109 NL Hold’em 2R1A last Wednesday.
Returning to the Top 20 this week is Edinburgh's Ross “RLOG” Loggie, who also has the rest of today to complete what would be his first Triple Crown of online titles. On March 13, Loggie win The Big €100 at PokerStars.fr for $3,341 and on the same night took down The Hot $44 at PokerStars. He now has until the end of March 20 to win a qualifying tournament on another online poker site to secure his first Triple Crown. Good luck, sir!
