UK & Ireland Online Poker Rankings: Moorman Back on Top

Chris Moorman
  • Chris Moorman returns to the number one spot in the United Kingdom's online poker rankings.

Former world number one, Chris “moorman1” Moorman, has returned to the top of the pile of the United Kingdom’s online poker rankings on the back of several four and five-figures scores.

We mentioned in our last rankings update that Moorman had five final table appearances in the space of a couple of days, finishes that netted him more than $30,000, and he kept up his hot form by finishing fifth in the $215 Fat Thursday at PokerStars for $4,444 and winning the Americas Cardroom Extreme Tuesday for $10,879.

As a result, Moorman climbs to number one in the UK and is now back to 11th in the world.

Also climbing up the UK and world rankings are Jamie “EzGame89” O’Connor and Phil “philroyal888” Mighall. O’Connor is up to fourth in the UK and 27th in the world thanks in part to winning the $109 NLHE 6-Max Hyper for $5,668, finishing eighth in the $109 Sunday Cooldown for $2,886, and finishing fourth in the Big $215 for $5,016 all at PokerStars.

Mighall is one place behind O’Connor in both the UK and world standings after winning the partypoker $50,000 High Roller for $13,460 and the PokerStars $55 NLHE 6-max Hyper for $3,490, before finishing fifth in the PokerStars Big $215 for $4,590.
