The Irish online poker rankings have three new additions to them, two of whom are making their debuts in this report.
Thanks in part to his massive $273,000 score in the PokerStars World Championship Of Online Poker (WCOOP) Main Event, his reward for a sixth place finish, Rory “rbdowntown” Brown enters the Irish rankings in 19th place in Ireland and climbs to a career-high of 736th in the world.
Brown’s huge score was more than five times as large as his previous best and took his lifetime winnings past the $850,000 mark. The man from Rathmines, Dublin also finished second in a $109 NL Hold’em event on the same day as his life-changing cash, banking $15,000.
The other brand new name on the Irish leaderboard is that of “Kersplunk” who only created his PocketFives.com account last week. Kersplunk’s impressive lifetime winnings of $906,185 have seen him enter the Irish rankings in fifth place and the world standings in 278th. He appears to be a mass multi-tabling low-to-mid stakes grinder whose total winnings are made more impressive by the fact he only has three five-figure scores and none of those over $22,000. We’ll keep an eye on him in the coming weeks.
Also returning to the limelight this week is Dino “dinos622” Sabatini thanks to a brace of victories at PokerStars. Sabatini won the $27 NL Hold’em Turbo Progressive Super-Knockout for $3,403 and the $55 NL Hold’em Turbo Re-Entry for $2,730 and now occupies 18th place in Ireland.

Hat Trick of Wins For Marcin Milde
It appears that many of the players in the top 20 of the United Kingdom online poker rankings took some well-deserved time off following WCOOP as many of them prepare for the upcoming European Poker Tour (EPT) Malta festival, but it was business as usual for a handful of them.
Leeds’ Marcin “MARCIN123” Milde has been busy grinding and those hours at the virtual felt have paid off courtesy of a hat trick of victories. On Tuesday night, Milde won the $8.80 NL Hold’em 1R1A ($2,847), the $27 NL Hold’em Turbo Progreesive Super-Knockout ($3,693) and the $33 NL Hold’em Trubo ($3,514) for a very profitable session. Milde is now up to 16th in the UK.
Sam “TheSquid” Grafton is now knocking on the door of a top 10 ranking as a result of three deep runs. One of those deep finishes came at partypoker when Grafton finished third in the $7,500 Gtd Turbo Saturday Major for $952 and the other two stemmed from his play at PokerStars where he won the $82 NL Omaha Hi/Low 6-Max Hyper for $986 and then a fifth place finish in the Sunday Supersonic 6-Max for $11,867.
Finally, Rupert “ElRupert” Elder continues to make his way up the various leader boards and is now sixth in the UK and a career-best 55th in the world. Those lofty positions have been helped by results such as his third place finish in the $82 NL Hold’em 6-Max Hyper for $2,552 and a $13,503 score had by finishing sixth in the $530 buy-in Sunday 500.
