Kevin Killeen Still Dominating in Ireland

The Irish number one online poker tournament player, according to, is still Kevin “SuitedAcesBaby” Killeen. There isn’t a week goes by that the Dubliner doesn’t help himself to a mid-four figure score, and this week was no different.

A win in the 888poker $20,000 Sunday Lightning 6-Max netted Killeen $6,886 while his 12th place in the PokerStars Super Tuesday saw him bank $5,232.

Another player helping themselves to a large score this week was Conor “ccoonnoorr” O’Driscoll who collected a cool $9,220 after he was the runner-up in the PokerStars Big $55.

Elsewhere, the Irish rankings remain extremely similar to when we last updated, but we have to give a doff of the cap to Dara “Doke” O’Kearney who on April 17 completed his fifth Triple Crown. Doke won The Weigh-In at partypoker for $3,607, the €10,000 Grand Saturday at Betfair Poker for $3,032, and the €10,000 Palace at for $2,891 within a week (two days actually).
