UK & Ireland Online Poker Rankings: Beresford Still In Front

UK & Ireland Online Poker Rankings
  • Check out the top 20 ranked online poker tournament players who call the United Kingdom and Ireland home.

Our friends at have updated their rankings, and now the points are collated Conor “1_conor_b_1” Beresford is still the man to catch in the United Kingdom online poker rankings.

Beresford tops the UK chart and is only one place of top spot in the world. By Beresford’s standards, last week was relatively quiet, although he did take down the $50,000 guaranteed Sunday edition of the partypoker Weigh-In for $11,267 to keep up his excellent record of seemingly bagging a five-figure score at least once per week.

Phil “philroyal888” Mighall closed the gap between himself and Beresford, albeit by only 10 points, thanks to winning the PokerStars Hot $55 for $8,576, while Jamie “EzGame89” O’Connor kept tabs on Mighall with a brace of runner-up finishes in the $82 NLHE 6-Max and $215 Bounty Builder at PokerStars for scores of $1,585 and $4,602.

Climbing to seventh place in the UK this week is Rick “TheClaimer” Trigg after a solid week of online action. Trigg won three tournaments at PokerStars, namely the $22 NLHE Turbo ($643), the $82 NLHE 6-Max Hyper ($2,158) and the $215 Bounty Builder ($6,589).

A special mention to Owain “sngwonder” Carey who seems to excel in partypoker tournaments. Carey triumphed in the $50,000 High Roller and netted himself $15,246 this week.

Spain’s UK-based grinder Vicente “vicenfish” Delgado has also hit form, winning the Hot $162 twice, the $162 Bounty Builder, and a runner-up finish in the $109 NLHE all at PokerStars.

Win Pushes Dan Wilson Into Second Place in Ireland

Tomas “luckymo32” Geleziunas managed to keep up his incredible volume again this week, but it wasn’t enough to prevent him from falling one place to third in the Irish online poker rankings. Geleziunas was pushed into third spot thanks to a superb win for Dan “NukeTheFish!” Wilson.

Wilson, the reigning Irish Open champion, took down the PokerStars Hot $109 for $10,030 to climb one place to second. This victory has helped close the gap between himself and current leader Kevin “SuitedAcesBaby” Killeen to a mere 146.59 point, the narrowest the gap has been for several months.

Also climbing into the winner’s circle this week was Daniel “danielt999” Tighe who made up for finishing second in the PokerStars $215 NLHE ($2,873) by securing top spot in the Big $162 for $3,918. Those results helped push Tighe to fourth place in Ireland, up two places.

Shoutouts have to go to Toby “Jobytoyce Joyce and Cathal “shinerrr” Shine who improved their ranking this week.

Joyce enjoyed five four-figure scores during the past seven days, while Shine finished second in the PokerStars Big $55 for $7,035.
