UK & Ireland Online Poker Rankings: Holman and Mighall Climb

UK & Ireland online poker rankings


  • Chris Moorman reclaims the UK number one spot from Oscar Serradell

  • Sergio Garcia seems untouchable in Ireland

  • Frank Lillis returns to the Irish top 20

Andy “andyh26” Holman and Phil “philroyal888” Mighall have climbed to ninth and 14th place in the online poker rankings this week following a trio of victories between them.

Holman improved his place on the United Kingdom’s leader board by one spot thanks to finishing eighth in the Hotter $44 ($1,518) and then winning the $55 NL Hold’em Turbo Big Antes Rebuy ($4,863) both at PokerStars on Sunday.

Mighall, who reached the final table of the WPT Nottingham Main Event, last week won the $320 NL Hold’em 6-Max ($5,328) and followed that win up with another a few days later, this time in the $215 NL Hold’em Turbo ($6,622), again both tournaments were at PokerStars.

Another British player enjoying some success on Sunday was Chris “Moorman1” Moorman. The former world number one had more than a dozen cashes at the weekend, the best of which saw him finish as runner-up in the 888poker $40,000 Turbo Mega Deep ($7,710) and first in the PokerStars $215 NL Hold’em Turbo ($7,222). Moorman has reclaimed the UK number one spot this week on the back of that brace of results.

One man to look out for after the next update is Christopher “NigDawG” Brammer who won this week’s Super Tuesday for $106,780. The win pushed Brammer’s lifetime winnings past the $5 million mark, but came too late to be included in this week’s rankings. When PocketFives next runs its update, Brammer has almost 750 points to add to his tally.

Top 20 Reshuffled in Ireland

There has been something of a reshuffle of the top 20 ranked players who call Ireland home, although one position remains unchanged and that fact should remain true through to the end of the year.

Top spot is still occupied by Sergio “EV4dGloryOMC” Garcia who now has 1,600 leader board points more than his nearest rival, Daniel “NukeTheFish!” Wilson.

Wilson has been putting in solid results for the past few months and thoroughly deserves any accolades that are sent his way. Now ranked a career-high of 188th in the world, Wilson’s recent results include a win in the PokerStars $55 NL Hold’em Rebuy ($2,453), two third place finishes in the $33 NL Hold’em Turbo ($1,643) and the $55 NL Hold’em ($1,063) plus a runner-up finish in the Full Tilt Turbo Multi-Hundo ($6,444).

Jude “j.thaddeus” Ainsworth slides three places to eighth, while John “gruaiggorm” Daly falls out of the top 20 for the first time in a year.

Returning to the top 20 this week is Frank “Denman98” Lillis, thanks in part to winning the $8.80 NL Hold’em 1R1A ($2,417) and the $55 NL Hold’em Deep Stack ($1,548) both at PokerStars.
