UK Online Poker Rankings: Conor Beresford Second in the World
In recent times, both Chris “moorman1” Moorman and Christopher “NigDawG” Brammer have been ranked number one in the world by PocketFives.com, and now we have another British player on course to be crowned the best in the world at online poker tournaments.
Conor “1_conor_b_1” Beresford continues to enjoy some superb results at the virtual felt, results that have seen him climb to second in the worldwide standings. Although Beresford has not played since July 7, his results during his last week of action included four scores of more than $5,100.
Beresford now has a near 1,000-point cushion between himself and Phil “philroyal888” Mighall in the UK rankings, but finds himself trailing Sweden’s “C Darwin2” by around 600 points in the race to be world number one.
Most of the current UK top 20 are either still in Las Vegas, or having some much needed downtime from poker, but a few are at home grinding the online games.
Rick Trigg climbed one place to ninth this week, while “FouEnculePL” jumped from 20th place to 15th thanks in part to winning the PokerStars Big $215 for $20,652 and the partypoker Contender for $2,832.
Also on the rise is Dan “lucky_scrote” Carter who now occupies 17th place. Carter came third in a PokerStars Hot $162 for $6,359 and finished 37th in the Sunday Million for $2,279.
