It is still Steve “MrTimCaum” O’Dwyer who is the man to catch in Ireland and if he keeps banking $11,000 scores, like he did for his fifth-place finish in the partypoker Sunday High Roller Grind, he is going to take some catching.

O’Dywer’s nearest rival in the Irish rankings is Ronan “Sw33ney” Sweeney and he kept tabs with the leader by finishing as the runner-up in the partypoker Sunday Main Event: $100K Gtd for $13,420, a result that pushed Sweeney’s online tournament winning past $780,000.

High volume grinder Tomasz “luckymo32” Geleziunas helped himself to a $3,394 score at PokerStars’ French site thanks to finishing second in the €25,000 Gtd Super Thursday BigStack Turbo, while Sean “monkeybudgie” Prendiville netted $9,776 for his sixth-place finish in the PokerStars Turbo Series $530 NLHE event.
