UK & Ireland Online Poker Rankings: Chattaway Climbs to 14th in the World

Billy Chattaway


  • Christopher "NigDawG" Brammer still number one in the United Kingdom

  • "Kersplunk" closing in on a top three place in the Irish rankings

Billy Chattaway is knocking on the door of a top 10 place in the worldwide online poker rankings after the last update pushed him up the leader board to 14th place.

Chattaway had a fantastic set of results during the 2015 World Championship Of Online Poker (WCOOP) and PokerStars and it is here where he had yet another four-figure score last week. Chattaway finished fourth in The Big $162 on Monday night for $6,491, had he taken that particular tournament down he could have broken into the top 10.

UK-Based Spaniard, Oscar “MendaLerenda” Serradell, ended last week on a high note with Thursday being a profitable night for him. Third place finishes in the $54 NL Hold’em Turbo Knock out ($1,735) and the $55 NL Hold’em Turbo ($1,469) were followed up by wins in the Big $75 ($7,511) and the $109+R NL Hold’em ($9,275) all at PokerStars. If Serradell keeps up this form it won’t be long before he returns to the worldwide top 10.

Climbing a couple of spots in the UK standings this week was Conor “1_conor_b_1” Beresford thanks to his third place finish in the PokerStars Wednesday $320 ($13,671) and his sixth place in the Big $162 ($4,341), while Stephen “woody1234321” Woodhead’s brace of PokerStars wins in the $44 NL Hold’em Turbo ($2,160) and $109 NL Hold’em Turbo ($5,525) plus his third place in the partypoker $100,000 GTD High Roller ($10,504) saw him ladder up a little.

Elsewhere, Rhys “floppinhel” Jones won the PokerStars $109 NL Hold’em Turbo 1R1A for $15,580 and he now occupies 15th place in the UK standings.

Kersplunk Continues to Climb

The Irish top 20 went relatively unchanged this week although there were a couple of notable alterations.

Kersplunk” jumped two places to fourth in Ireland and up to a career-high of 187th in the world standings on the back of three dozen cashes including wins in the PokerStars $22 NL Hold’em 1R1A for $7,523 and in the Sunday Supersonic for $5,183. The anonymous grinder also finished third in the Big $109 for $7,722 and is now only a handful of points behind Tomas “luckymo32” Geleziunas in third place.

Speaking of Geleziunas, he won the PokerStars $27 NL Hold’em 6-Max Hyper Turbo for $4,838 this week to keep his nose in front of Kersplunk, while Cathal “shinerrr” Shine kept tabs on the top five place by claiming the $7,749 third place prize in the Big $162.

There were also victories this week for “Rowniwn,” Daniel “danielt999” Tighe and Frank “Denman98” Lillis with the largest of those going to Tighe courtesy of him taking down the Nightly $162 at PokerStars for $7,385.

The other notable change was Karl “chips1234” Curry returning to the top 20 in Ireland at the expense of Dara “Doke” O’Kearney. However, that only tells half of the story because the rankings do not include satellite results and O’Kearney has been helping himself, seemingly at will, to several package over the past week or so plus he’s been grinding the live circuit at the UKIPT Isle of Man and the 2015 World Series of Poker Europe in Berlin. Expect to see O’Kearney back in the top 20 once he returns to the online grind.
