UK & Ireland Online Poker Rankings: Beresford Soars to Number One

Conor Beresford
  • Conor Beresford returns to the number one spot in the UK's online poker tournament rankings.

The United Kingdom has a new number one ranked online poker tournament player according to the points system devised by PocketFives.com.

Conor “1_conor_b_1” Beresford has been ranked as high as second in the world and now resides in sixth place in the global standings after several four-figure scores took his points tally past the 7,000 barrier. Beresford helped himself to a five-figure score on Apr. 2 when he was the runner-up in the partypoker $100,000 Gtd High Roller, a result that netted the talented youngster $22,876.

Former world number one Patrick “pleno1” Leonard dropped to second place in the UK and is some 700 points behind Beresford despite also being the runner-up in one of partypoker’s $100,000 Gtd High Rollers. Leonard was the bridesmaid on Apr. 4 and banked $17,696.

Despite winning the $215 Thursday Thrill at PokerStars for $6,359 last week, Phil “philroyal888” Mighall dropped two places to ninth, but Sam “TheSquid” Grafton climbed from 19th place to 12th place following a fourth-place, runner-up and win in partypoker High Roller tournaments, which netted him a combined $38,431.

Dan Wilson Leapfrogs Toby Joyce in the Irish Standings

Dan “NukeTheFish!” Wilson has leapfrogged Toby “JobyToyce” Joyce at the top of the Irish standings although he enjoys less than a three-point lead. Wilson was busy attempting to defend his Irish Open title while Joyce was busy winning the Clubber II at partypoker for $1,936.

James “Jaymo” Noonan closed the gap on the top two places by finishing second in the Hot $215 at PokerStars for $7,360 and reaching several final tables at partypoker, PokerStars and 888poker and those results put a sizable gap between the top three and fourth-placed Tomas “luckymo32” Geleziunas.

Another Irishman helping himself to a decent score was Conor “ccoonnoorr” O’Driscoll who was the third-place finisher in the Big $55 at PokerStars for $4,485 while a string of cashes in mid-stakes tournaments resulted in Kamal “AceOfShamrocks” Singh return to the top 20 in Ireland at the expense of “Kursplunk”.
