UK & Ireland Online Poker Rankings


  • Conor Beresford climbs to second place in the UK online poker rankings and a career-high of 13th in the world.

  • Daniel Carter returns to the top 20 of the UK online poker rankings this week.

Conor “1_conor_b_1” Beresford is only three places away from entering the worldwide online poker rankings following a string of excellent results this past week.

Beresford now finds himself second in the United Kingdom and 13th in the world after reaching eight final tables, five of those finishing being in the top three. Beresford’s biggest scores weighed in at $12,984 and $14,521, his reward for a sixth place finish in the PokerStars $1,050 Thursday Thrill and a runner-up finish in the $50,000 guaranteed High Roller at partypoker.

Returning to the UK top 20 this week is Matas “bebaimis777” Cimbolas, who also climbs to a career-high 90th in the world. The popular Lithuanian enjoyed more than a dozen cashes last week, including an outright victory in the PokerStars Sunday 500 for $51,780.46.

Daniel “lucky_scrote” Carter is another player showing his face in the UK top 20 again. Wins in the PokerStars Big $11 for $10,506 and the $7,000 Lightning 6-Max at 888poker for $2,344 were sandwiched between third place finishes in the $55 No-Limit Hold’em at PokerStars and in the $20,000 Weigh-In at partypoker.
