Billy Chattaway

Billy “b8chatz” Chattaway continues to climb up the online poker rankings and it shouldn’t be long before he improves on his career-high of 21st in the world.

Chattaway has climbed to fifth in the UK and 40th in the world following a brace of five-figure scores that came less than a week after he claimed the $111,132 first place prize in the PokerStars Spring Championship Of Online Poker (SCOOP) Event #26.

This week, Chattway finished 13th in the $2,100 NL Hold’em Heads-Up High Roller for $11,760 and followed that up with a 16th place finish in the $10,300 NL Hold’em SCOOP Main Event for an additional $52,050.

Christopher “NigDawG” Brammer is another player on the rise; the former world number now is now up to seventh in the UK thanks to a string of impressive results. Brammer won a $215 NL Single Draw 2-7 SCOOP event last week for $12,894 and then won a $215 NL Hold’em Turbo event a couple of days later for $15,582.

Last Thursday, Brammer won the $320 NL Hold’em 6-Max for $19,152 and then grabbed the $7,735 27th place prize in the $2,100 NL Hold’em 1R1A SCOOP event.

Climbing four places to 16th in the UK this week is Tom “hitthehole” Middleton thanks to a number of final table appearance in the past week, seven in total. The former European Poker Tour (EPT) Barcelona winner is hitting form at the right time and will be full of confidence as he prepares to take on the World Series of Poker.

Shout outs to Oscar “MendaLerenda” Serradell for his $51,957 score from winning the 888poker WHALE, to Andy “andyh26” Holman for winning the PokerStars $109 NL Hold’em Turbo Progressive Super-Knockout for $16,576 and Conor “1_conor_b_1” Beresford for collecting the $11,557 runner-up prize a recent edition of the Big $109.
