Quiet Week For the Irish Contingent

We thought that it would be this week that Jude Ainsworth managed to reclaim the number one spot in the Irish online poker rankings but it appears that it wasn't meant to be and Ainsworth still trails John Daly on that front. The points difference is meagre at best so if Ainsworth has a semi-decent score in the next seven days and Daly doesn't the former will leapfrog the latter.

Third placed Kevin “SuitedAcesBaby” Killeen could also be challenging for the top spot thanks to winning the Full Tilt Tuesday Turbo for $4,836 and more than 135 leader board points. Killeen's win came too late for it to count towards his points tally this week.

Quick shoutout to David “Laois Hammer” Scully who won the $15,000 Sunday Major at partypoker for $2,856 and helped himself to third place in the $3.30 rebuy NL Hold'em 2x-Turbo at PokerStars for $2,073 and third place in the Titanbet Poker €5,000 Gtd Pearl for $765.
