UK & Ireland Online Poker Rankings: Leonard Opens A Big Lead

Team partypoker’s Patrick “pleno1” Leonard has opened up a substantial lead in the UK online poker rankings, provided by, after a string of fantastic results.

Leonard earned a bronze medal in the partypoker Sunday High Roller Terminator for $11,116 before netting another $9,441 by finishing fifth in the POWERFEST 09-HR: $150K Gtd PKO. Leonard rounded off an impressive week with a victory in the POWERFEST 14-H: $150K Gtd Big Antes PKO for $24,917.

Number two in the UK is now Conor “1_conor_b_1” Beresford thanks to him winning the PokerStars Sunday Million for $112.185. Beresford also took down the $530 Daily 500 at PokerStars a couple of days later for $12,713 and is now more than 700 points ahead of third-placed “girafganger7” but almost 700 points behind Leonard.

girafganger7 took home more than $20,000 for their victory in the $530 Bounty Builder High Roller while the potential player of the week, Tyler “wonderboy222” Goatcher, claimed two POWERFEST titles. Goatcher won the POWERFEST 09-H and Medium events for scores of $31,732 and $9,554 to climb into the top 10 for the first time in his career.

Lastly, a shout-out to Damien “DamienWain” Wain whose runner-up finish in the PokerStars Bigger $215 saw him add $10,152 to his lifetime winnings that now stand at almost $1.8 million.

O’Dwyer Still Leads But Geleziunas Chasing

Steve “MrTimCaum” O’Dwyer is still the man to catch in Ireland but his long reign at the top could soon be over as Tomas “luckymo32” Geleziunas is less than 400 points behind him. Neither player had a result of note over the past week but the same couldn’t be said of Sven “SvenCalls” McDermott.

McDermott helped himself to a $7,945 prize in the partypoker POWERFEST 01-H: $150K Gtd Grind after navigating his way to fourth place. He also won a $55 NLHE 6-Max PKO event at PokerStars for more than $1,500.

“Rowniwn” was another Irishman in the winner’s circle last week, taking down the Hot $82 at PokerStars for $2,877 while former Irish number one Kevin “SuitedAcesBaby” Killeen was a big winner in the PokerStars $530 Bounty Builder High Roller after finishing third for more than $8,500.

An old face returned to the Irish rankings on the back of a 12th place finish in the PokerStars Sunday Million worth $6,415. Dino “dinos662” Sabatini is now ranked 10th in Ireland following that excellent result.
