Bert “girafganger7” Stevens is Ranked No. 1 in the UK

Bert Stevens

Bert “girafganger7” Stevens is ranked number one in the United Kingdom online poker rankings, provided by our friends at PocketFives.com. Stevens hails from Belgium but calls the UK home, hence his breath-taking results earning him top spot in the British Isles.

Stevens’ 13,218 points tally is not only enough to call himself the number one in the UK, but is enough to see Stevens ranked in the top ten in the world. He currently occupies eighth place in the global standings. There are not many points separating Stevens in eighth and the legendary Mike “SirWatts” Watson in fifth.

However, there is some distance between Stevens and the current world number one Yuri Dzivelevski (16,330).

Vamos! Volkmann Victorious in the Super MILLION$

Former world number one, Patrick Leonard, is second in the UK rankings, and the only other player with more than 10,000 leaderboard points. Leonard has enjoyed some superb results of late, which helped push his online poker lifetime winnings towards the $13.5 million mark.

Jonathan “proudflop” Proudfoot, Chris “moorman1” Moorman, and Conor “1_conor_b_1” Beresford make up the rest of the top five.

A couple of deep runs over the weekend could see a significant shake-up of the rankings in the UK because several players are within touching distance of one another. Jon “luckyfish89” Clark, “ZDARLIGHT23,” James “RUNITSRANN” Rann, and the recent addition to the Team PokerStars stable Sam “SamSquid” Grafton are all lurking just outside the top ten.

Lillis Is The Man To Catch in Ireland

Frank “Denman98” Lillis is the current Irish number one thanks, in part, to some impressive results during May. Lillis banked $18,392 for a fourth-place finish in the GGPoker WSOPC High Rollers: $1,050 Daily Main tournament only a couple of days after bagging a $10,030 score on the same site. Throw into the mix a couple of $9,000 and $5,000 scores, and you can see why Lillis is now ranked 64th in the world, an all-time high for the man from Galway.

Alex “FutureOfMe” Kulev is second in the Emerald Isle. Kulev has more than $775,000 in lifetime winnings in the online poker world, a sum helped by results such as his second-place finish in the PokerStars $530 Bounty Builder, which saw him win more than $17,000.

Others Irish star making up the top five places in the rankings are Marc “sluglife” MacDonnell, “penguy2”, and James “Jaymo” Noonan.

Expect Irish legend and all-round good guy Dara “Doke” O’Kearney to improve on his eighth place by the time the rankings next update. O’Kearney is riding something of a heater at the moment, and reaching final tables with an alarming regularity.
