  • Check out the top 20 online poker tournament players from the United Kingdom and Ireland in our rankings update.

It may have been a relatively quiet week in the world of online poker tournaments, but a handful of players from the United Kingdom and Ireland improved their positions in the online poker rankings after some excellent results.

Rick “TheClaimer” Trigg jumped eight places to 10th in the UK standings following an impressive Sunday that saw him cash in 11 tournaments, including a sixth place finish in the 888poker $100,000 Mega Deep for $4,896 and then fourth in the partypoker $150,000 Main Event for an additional $10,200.

Another player enjoying themselves on Sunday was Owain “sngwonder” Carey who was the runner-up in the PokerStars Super-Sized Sunday, a result that came with a $21,184 payout.

Also rising is the player known as “luckyfish89.” Last week they were in 20th place in the UK, this week they find themselves occupying 15th spot. This is because they are on course for a PocketFives Triple Crown having won the $33 Sunday Rebuy at PokerStars for $12,495 and then the $15,000 Sunday Breeze at 888poker for $5,046. Luckyfish89 is now ranked 113rd in the world, an all-time high from the Surrey grinder.

Lastly for the UK, a mention of “FouEnculePL” who debuts at number 20 on the leaderboard. Runner-up finishes in the Super Tuesday Early Edition for $5,890 and the Hot $33 for $2,685 at PokerStars were followed up with a win in the $15,000 Crocodile at 888poker for $5,515.
