Rick Trigg Gallops Into Fourth in the UK Online Rankings

Rick Trigg has mounted a charge up the UK online tournament rankings and is trailing the top three by a nose. The horse racing lover from Sheffield has 6338.76 points to his name, while third placed Jareth East has 6492.67, a gap of only 153.91 points.

Last Wednesday, Trigg won the PokerStars $109 rebuy for a cool $11,244.50 and followed up that impressive result the following night with a third place in The Big $162, which netted “TheClaimeer” an additional $11,758.50.

Trigg won’t be adding many scores to his profile this week because he’s currently trying to fleece the bookies at the Cheltenham festival!

Another Brit who banked a nice score after winnings a $109 buy-in tournament at PokerStars was Reigate’s Jareth “jareth3542” East. Mr East danced his way through the 1,155 strong field in the March 9 edition of the $109 NL Hold’em Turbo to scoop the $19,935.30 first place prize.

Bursting into the top 20 of the powered rankings is Edinburgh’s Magnus “Giffordonian” Martin who debuts in 17th place. The mid-stakes regular seems to have a penchant for Omaha tournaments and they have served him well this past week with a win in the $22 PL Omaha Hi/Lo and another in the $109 PL Omaha Hi/Lo both at PokerStars.

Joining Martin in the “I’m ranked in the top 20 club” is Christopher Johnson, known in online poker circles as “MAKKAPAKK.” Johnson finished second in the €100 buy-in Night of Stars at last night for $7,063.37 and a shedload of leader board points so expect him to climb higher up the rankings in the coming weeks.
