Kevin Killeen Reclaims Top Spot; Mick Graydon Falls From Top 20

There has been a slight reshuffle of the Irish top 20 with Kevin “SuitedAcesBaby” Killeen reclaiming the top spot from Dan “NukeTheFish!” Wilson, and Michael “BIGMICKG” Graydon falling out of the top 20 for the first time since UK & Ireland PokerNews began compiling these reports.

Killeen returned to the number one spot despite no massive scores to speak off, but more of a case of the points decaying for older tournaments. The gap between himself and Wilson is only small, so we could see Wilson climb back to the summit by next week.

Fourth-placed James “Jaymo” Noonan closed in on the leaders slightly thanks to winning the partypoker Clubber tournament for $2,783 while Toby “JobyToyce” Joyce also won at partypoker, taking down the Kangaroo tournament for $1,850.

The player known as “Kursplunk” jumped four places to eighth this week following his win in the PokerStars Hot $7.50 for $4,080, reaching the final table of Sunday Supersonic and reaching the final table of the partypoker $100,000 Gtd Main Event.

A special mention has to go to Frank “Denman98” Lillis who finished as runner-up in the Sunday Special FPS Deauville tournament for an $11,521 score, and to “rtspurs” who returned to the top 20 this week thanks in part to his exploits in the Omaha tournaments at PokerStars, namely the $320 NLO8 Omania High Roller where he finished fifth for $1,779.
