Brammer tops Bluff European Rankings

Brammer tops Bluff European Rankings

Wednesday, 7 November 2012

Britain's Christopher Brammer has jumped ahead of French rapper turned poker player Bruno Lopes into top spot in the Bluff European Rankings courtesy of an impressive final-table finish at last month's WSOPE Main Event.

Bluff's rankings are designed to reward players who go deep consistently in big-field, high-buy-in events, with no big “point jumps” for first-place. While many players in the top ten have first-place finishes and have earned more money than him on the European circuit this year, Brammer is the man our system identifies as being the most consistent player so far this year in working his way through the trickiest fields in tournament poker. The results from EPT San Remo are still to be crunched by the Bluff supercomputer so there's plenty still to play for, especially with a packed November calendar to look forward to.

The next ranking event is GUKPT Blackpool which features a £500+50 No Limit Hold'em Main Event. It’s back down south to Reading for the Southern England Poker Challenge which is a £500+£50 freezeout main event, with a variety of side events and cash games. A number of satellite events are running online at Genting Poker, while direct buy-ins are accepted in all Genting Casinos. The first event of the challenge is a £50+£5 freezeout as a satellite to the main event on 15th November.

Staying with Genting and Leg 6 of the Genting Poker Series descends on Sheffield at the end of the month. The main event is £400+30 NLH. You can qualify at through a series of super-satellites from as little as £5. £55 super-sats run Monday, Wednesday and Sunday with 3 x £430 seats guaranteed.

Finally, it’s back off to the capital for the GUKPT and its end of season finale. The Vic is the venue for the £2,500 + 125 NLH Main Event which runs from Friday, 30 November to Sunday, 2 December.  You can qualify on G Casino Poker by playing feeders and satellites into a weekly four-seat guaranteed super satellite.

The current table is as follows:

1 Christopher Brammer UK 16552
2 Bruno Lopes FR 13617
3 Sergio Castelluccio IT 12460
4 Mohsin Charania US 12198
