UK & Ireland Online Poker Rankings: Super Sunday Boost Gill

Online poker rankings
  • Jonathan Gill's super Sunday sees him return to the top 20 of the United Kingdom online poker rankings.

  • Jason Tompkins returns to the top 20 of the Irish online poker rankings.

Jonathan “Gil3000” Gill hit the UK & Ireland PokerNews headlines earlier this week after he won two online Sunday Majors in one sitting.

Gill took down the $215 Bounty Builder at PokerStars, then the $50,000 guaranteed rebuy Powerfest event at partypoker, and managed to navigate his way to an 18th place finish in the WCOOP edition of the Sunday Warm-Up at PokerStars.

These awesome results not only boosted Gill’s bankroll, but they also added plenty of points to his profile, so many in fact that he has returned to the UK’s top 20 ranked players where he occupies 14th place, and a career-high of 105th in the world.

Richard “TheClaimer” Trigg is another player who has improved their ranking this week. Trigg won the $109 Sunday Warm-Up at PokerStars for a shade under $9,500 and the points gained from that tournament were enough to propel for the former world number two to sixth in the UK.

The rest of the UK top 20 remains mostly the same as last week despite a $13,966 win in the PokerStars $320 Omania High Roller for Phil “philroyal888” Mighall, a victory in the Americas Cardroom $50,000 guaranteed Turbo MegaStack worth $9,750 for Chris “moorman1” Moorman, and a win in the PokerStars $109 NLHE 6-Max Hyper-Turbo worth $8,197 for Andy “andyh26” Holman.

Two Wins See Dan Wilson Return to the Irish Number One Spot

Dan “NukeTheFish!” Wilson is back in the number one spot in Ireland following a brace of victories at PokerStars. Wilson won the $55 NLHE 6-Max Progressive KO for $2,442 and then triumphed in the Big $215 for a bankroll-boosting $19,570 score.

Second-placed Kevin “SuitedAcesBaby” Killeen also won big this week, finishing as runner-up in the $109 Bounty Builder for $9,039 and then 14th place in the WCOOP edition of the Super Tuesday for $10,108, although that last result is still to clear on his PocketFives profile.

Daragh “daragh999” Davey, who recently announced he and his partner are to become parents, added $7,283 to his lifetime winnings by finishing third in the PokerStars $109 Bounty Builder, while Dara “Doke” O’Kearney was the runner-up in the Weigh-In at Partypoker for $5,712.

The familiar name of Jason “blaaaaah666” Tompkins returned to the Irish top 20 this week. Tompkins has been putting in some solid results of late, but it was his runner-up finish in the Hot €50 for $1,043 and a 40th place finish in the WCOOP edition of the Sunday Million for $3,899 that helped push him back into the limelight.
