Leonard Knocked From Top Spot; Chattaway and Fields Return to Top 20
Ladies and gentlemen, the United Kingdom has a brand new number one in the online poker tournament rankings after London-based Spaniard Vincent “vincenfish” Delgado Zamorano knocked the seemingly untouchable Patrick “pleno1” Leonard from the top spot that he has occupied for several months.
Although Zamorano had no real scores of note during the past week, neither did the now second placed Leonard, who quite famously puts in much less volume than almost anyone in the top 20 places. However, now that Leonard finds himself nominated for a couple of British Poker Awards, he may start to play more in order to make more of a name of himself while voting is still open!
Up two places to seventh this week is Jareth “jareth3542” East who you may recall had his first six-figure score last week when he won the 47th event of the 2014 World Championship Of Online Poker. East added a five-figure score to his CV this week by taking down The Double Deuce at Full Tilt Poker for $11,632.
One spot below East you will find Rhys “floppinhel” Jones. Jones had five cashes of over $1,200 during the past seven days, the two largest weighing in at $7,330 and $14,459, Jones’ reward for winning the $8.80 NL Hold’em Rebuy and cashing in the WCOOP Main Event at PokerStars.
Returning to the top 20 after some superb results is Billy Chattaway. Although Chattway is a regular on the smaller iPoker and Microgaming sites, he sometimes ventures over to PokerStars when major festivals are running, such as the recent WCOOP.
Chattaway banked $3,418 by finishing third in the $8.80 NL Hold’em rebuy, $8,384 for coming sixth in the $700 buy-in WCOOP-61: PL Omaha Heads-up, $14,459 for reaching the money places in the WCOOP Main Event and $4,351 by winning the $82 NL Hold’em 6-Max Hyper! Throw into the mix a $,3039 and $9,695 score at Betfair Poker and you can see why Chattaway is back in the top 20, although some way off the pace of his highest ever ranking of 21st in the world.
Also back in the limelight is Luke Fields, who like Chattaway has some great results of late that he can brag about. While Fields hasn’t been banking huge scores, he’s been hitting the money places and going deep in major online tournaments consistently for the past few weeks and it is finally paying off.
Fields was ranked as high as 67th in the world during 2011 and is starting to make his way back towards that lofty height, currently finding himself in 214th place.
