UK & Ireland Online Rankings: Carey and Trigg Continue to Climb

Rick Trigg


  • Rick Trigg and Owain Carey climbed up the UK online poker rankings this week.

The vast majority of the players occupying the top 20 positions in the UK & Ireland online poker rankings are in Las Vegas hoping to win a gold World Series of Poker bracelet, but not everyone is at the WSOP, some have stayed on home soil and are racking up scores at the virtual felt.

Conor “1_conor_b_1” Beresford is one such player. Beresford is still the number one in the UK, and has reached the dizzy heights of fourth in the world standings. A win in the PokerStars Big $109 for $10,581 was Beresford’s largest cash of the past week.

Another player doing well for themselves is Owain “sngwonder” Carey, who is now up to 14th place in the UK rankings. A third-place finish in the partypoker High Roller bagged Carey $7,613, while his sixth-place in the PokerStars Sunday Grand PLO added $5,940 to the coffers. Last night, Carey won the $162 NLHE Ultra Deep Stacks at PokerStars for $3,500.

Rick “TheClaimer” Trigg has returned to the UK top 20 after a few weeks out of the limelight. The former world number four has been racking up some serious volume over the past week, and has enjoyed some large scores, including winning the $215 Bounty Builder at PokerStars for $6,027 and finishing second in the partypoker High Roller for $7,308.

Conor O’Driscoll Enters Irish Top 10

Again, because of the WSOP in Las Vegas, it was a relatively quiet week for the top 20 Irish players in the online world, although Conor “ccoonnoorr” O’Driscoll did manage to jump from 11th to seventh-place thanks to a win in the 888poker $12,000 Monsoon for $3,425 and a $1,289 score at PokerStars where he finished third in the $82 Bounty Builder.

A trio of other Irishmen had some four-figures scores to brag about, too. Cathal “shinerrr” Shine won the Balboa tournament at partypoker for $2,728 and final table bubbled the $50,000 Volcano at 888poker for $1,627.

James “Jaymo” Noonan was the runner-up in a PokerStars Big $162 for $2,839 while Daragh “daragh999” Davey won the Big €20 at for $1,754.
