Chris Moorman


  • Check out the latest online poker rankings for players calling the United Kingdom and Ireland home.

Whenever a poker player wins three online tournaments in the space of seven days, tournaments with prize pools in excess of $10,000, awards them a Triple Crown. They could be handing out several more this week because a handful of players who call the United Kingdom home have won a couple of qualifying tournaments.

Chris “Moorman1” Moorman already has 25 such Triple Crowns and could hit 26 thanks to winning both the $50,000 Volcano at 888poker for $14,605 and the $50,000 High Roller at partypoker for $13,750.

Joel “Crackdel29” Visa Jordana won the 888poker $15,000 Sunday Lightning for $4,632 and the PokerStars Big $215 for $9,377, plus the PokerStars $109 NLHE for $1,766, while Scott “Aggro Santos” Margereson took down the $80,000 Sunday Challenge at 888poker for $16,183 and the $12,500 Super Knockout at partypoker for $1,561.

Shoutouts have to go to Owain “sngwonder” Carey who won the Hot $162 for $3,562 and the Fat Tuesday for $14,431 at PokerStars, to Vicente “vicenfish” Delgado who won three PokerStars tournaments, including the $320 NLHE for $5,458, and to Rick “TheClaimer” Trigg who had more than half of a dozen final table appearances that helped him climb from eighth place to fifth place this week.
