UK & Ireland Online Poker Rankings: Beresford and Wilson Lead

UK & Ireland Online Poker Rankings: Beresford and Wilson Lead 0001
  • Conor Beresford tops the UK online poker rankings while Dan Wilson retains his lead in the Irish standings.

Conor “1_conor_b_1” Beresford and Dan “NukeTheFish!” Wilson are the men to catch in the United Kingdom and Irish online poker rankings going into the first week of February.

Beresford holds a narrow lead over partypoker ambassador Patrick “pleno1” Leonard in the UK standings with the latter only being 17.7 points behind. Leonard closed the gap by cashing for $9,785 in the $3,000 NL Hold’em 8-Max TCOOP event at PokerStars and could return to the number one spot when his runner-up finish in the $109 Bounty Builder, worth $7,374, is added to his PocketFives.com profile.

Brighton’s Phil “philroyal888” Mighall added $7,300 to his lifetime winnings when he finished fourth in the $215 Fat Tuesday at PokerStars while Spain’s Vicente “vicenfish” Delgado soared to seventh place courtesy of his massive $287,060 score awarded for winning the $3,000 NL Hold’em TCOOP event at PokerStars.

Another player returning to the top 20 is Scott “Aggro Santos” Margereson. The Yorkshireman finished third in the PokerStars $215 Fat Tuesday and banked $12,497; Margereson is now ranked ninth in the UK.

Four players in the top 20 netted themselves big scores this week thanks to winning tournaments outright. Owain “sngwonder” Carey won the Big $55 at PokerStars for $9,484, Andy “andyh26” Holman took down the $320 Super Tuesday Late Edition at PokerStars for $14,426, and Oscar “MendaLerenda” Serradell triumphed in the $300,000 Gtd High Roller Powerfest event at partypoker for $55,142.
