Superb Results Reshape Irish Online Poker Rankings

Online Poker Rankings

Jude Ainsworth’s lead at the top of the Irish online poker rankings is now less than 300 points thanks to Tomas “luckymo32” Geleziunas banking a couple of big wins during the past seven days. Geleziunas, a Lithuanian based in Ashbourne, Meath, helped himself to the $26,158 first place prize in the 888poker $100,000 Guaranteed Sunday Challenge and as a result climbed to second place in the Irish rankings and to 108th in the worldwide leader board.

Two other players on the rise are Paul Allen and Dan Wilson; the latter has entered the top 10 for the first time since we started compiling these rankings article. Allen went on a tear on Sunday when he had deep runs in the PokerStars Sunday Warm-Up (32nd), the Sunday Million (158th), Supersonic (33rd) and the $109 Turbo 2x Chance (5th).

Wilson flew to ninth in the Irish standings thanks to a number of impressive results since the start of 2014. A win in the Big €100, a runner-up finish in the PokerStars $109 NL Hold’em 6-Max and a sixth place in the Sunday Warm-Up have helped boost Wilson’s points tally to 3,166.67.

A special mention goes to “Big” Mick Graydon who had a trio of near misses in PokerStars events in recent days. A second place finish in the $55 Turbo Rebuy was followed up with a runner-up finish in the $82 NL Hold’em 6-Max Hyper and a third place in the same $82 buy-in event the following night.

Moorman Still Leads After a Quiet Week For the Brits

It was a quiet week for the top 10 ranked players from the United Kingdom, resulting in little change in how the leader board looks.

Chris Moorman is still number one, thanks in part to taking down the $51 NL Hold’em Hyper-Turbo at PokerStars on Monday night. Moorman’s closest rival is Charlie Combes who finished 24th in this weekend’s Sunday 500 and won the $215 NL Hold’em Turbo 2x Chance on the same night. When the rankings are next updated Combes has a second place in the Hot €50 to add to his already impressive points total.

Next week we could see a new entry in the top 10 because there are only 77.36 points separating Ben Jones in 10th place and Andrew Hulme in 15th. Stay tuned to UK & Ireland PokerNews for a UK & Ireland focussed breakdown of the rankings.
