Both the online poker rankings for the United Kingdom and Ireland, provided by, remained almost the same but there is still plenty to shout about with several big prizes won.

Scott “Aggro Santos” Margereson finished third in a $530 Bounty Builder for more than $25,000 while Chris “Moorman1” Moorman won a $30,000 guaranteed six-max tournament at for a $13,309 haul. Moorman has slipped down the standings recently but is still up there with the biggest winners of all-time.

At the top of the rankings, Patrick “pleno1” Leonard still leads and will do for the foreseeable future as he holds a commanding lead of more than 1,600 points. Leonard scooped several four-figure prizes last week, including one for $6,442 when he finished fourth in a $215 Bounty Hunter at partypoker. Leonard also netted almost $79,000 in the High Roller Gladiator, but this came too late to be included in this week’s tally.

Conor “1_conor_b_1” Beresford helped himself to more than $5,500 with a third-place finish in a $1,050 Daily Cooldown PKO at PokerStars, with “girafganger7” helping himself to $5,158 by finishing third in the $1,050 Sunday Warm-Up.

The player known as “dawhiteninja” took down the Hot $22 for $4,140 and Paul “Fold Machiii” Dando padded his bankroll with more than $7,500 by finishing third in the PokerStars $530 Bounty Builder.

Two players secured five-figure prizes. Serial crusher Michael “mczhang” Zhang won $27,990 for his runner-up finish in the $2,100 Sunday High Roller at PokerStars, while Damien “DamienWain” Wain won the Super Tuesday and netted $23,504.

Kamal “AceOfShamrocks” Singh Climbs Five Places

Several members of the Irish online poker tournament community got their hands on large scores during the past week, including Kamal “AceOfShamrocks” Singh whose impressive result saw him soar five places.

Singh won the $109 Sunday Kickoff at PokerStars for a cool $9,679. It was a result that saw Singh’s lifetime online winnings draw ever closer to $1.3 million.

Sean “monkeybudgie” Prendiville had a series of deep runs but couldn’t quite get over the line. His largest score weighed in at $3,502, his reward for a 10th place finish in the PokerStars $1,050 Sunday Warm-Up. The week previously, Prendiville banked $31,854 for winning the same tournament.

Also in the winner’s circle this week was Ronan “Sw33ney” Sweeney who triumphed in the Hot $215 for a $4,808 prize, a similar haul to that enjoyed by Matthew “flukeybob” Brady for his fourth-place finish in the $109 NLHE Bounty Builder Series.

Another winner was Johnathen “johnymcc” McCullagh who took down the Big $11 for $3,230 while Aidan “aidohynes” Hynes went on something of a heater to win two PokerStars events, finish second twice and bag a third-place finish. Hynes’ biggest prize was worth $4,667 when he finished second in the PokerStars Hot $215.
