Patrick Leonard Opens a Gap in the UK Online Poker Rankings
Patrick Leonard is still the number one ranked online poker tournament player from the United Kingdom after yet another week full of deep runs and big scores in online poker’s toughest multi-table tournaments.
Leonard’s hot run of form has seen him open a gap between himself and second placed Toby “810ofclubs” Lewis of more than 700 points and looks set to be on top of the leader board for some time to come.
On Sunday, while preparing to jet off to Spain for the UKIPT Marbella festival, Leonard won the PokerStars $22 NL Hold’em 1R1A for $10,183 and followed that impressive score up with a runner-up finish in the $55+R NL Hold’em for $4,456 also at PokerStars. Add into the mix a couple more four-figure scores and it is easy to see why Leonard is one of the hottest properties in world poker right now.
Thanks to his continued success at the virtual felt, Leonard is only a big score or two away from climbing to the number spot in the worldwide rankings. Leonard has 7,894 points to his name, with second placed “r4ndomr4gs” on 8,094 and current leader Lukas “lukethafluke” Berglund on 8,102.
Chris “moorman1” Moorman hit form before heading to Las Vegas and helped himself to a win in the PokerStars $55 NL Hold’em 6-Max Turbo for $5,000; a runner-up finish in the PokerStars $320 NL Hold’em 6-Max for $5,145 and a third place finish in the Full Tilt Poker MTOPS Main Event for $19,000.
Former world number one Christopher “NigDawG” Brammer is on for another PocketFives.com Triple Crown of titles after binking two tournaments on Tuesday night. Brammer won the PokerStars.fr Big €50 and the $51 NL Hold’em Hyper-Turbo at PokerStars to give him a shot of winning what would be his sixth Triple Crown.
