UK & Ireland Online Poker Rankings: All Change in the United Kingdom
It has been a month since UK & Ireland PokerNews checked out the online poker rankings created by PocketFives, so we decided to revisit them and see if there has been much change in the UK and Irish standings. There has been, especially in the UK where Patrick Leonard is again top dog, and several new faces have entered the top 20.
Leonard is a former world number one, but removed his details from his PocketFives account so was not eligible for points. Judging by how he is at the top of the UK leaderboard and up to seventh-place globally, it appears Leonard has re-entered his screen name, much to the annoyance of those now below him.
After a hugely successful WCOOP, Leonard has almost $2.7 million in online winnings across PokerStars, Partypoker, and 888poker, and it is difficult to imagine him not eclipsing the magical $3 million mark before 2016 draws to a close.
Conor “1_conor_b_1” Beresford is only 73.88 points behind Leonard and kept up on his rival’s coattails with a win in the 888poker Octopus for $4,478, a third place in the $109 Bounty Builder for $5,458 and a ninth-place in the Super Tuesday for $6,234, those last two being at PokerStars.
Returning to the top 20 after a prolonged absence is Ludovic “ludovi333” Geilich. The Scotsman is now at an all-time career high of 98th in the world following his win in the $21,000 PL Omaha 6-Max WCOOP High Roller for $462,182, a deep run in the WCOOP Main Event that netted him $32,376, and a recent win in the $320 Super Tuesday Late Edition for $14,484.
Oliver “3BunPass” Price is another player entering the top 20 of the UK rankings, and someone else who is at an all-time high globally, finding himself in 115th place. Price is closing in on $1.1 million in online winnings helped by him hitting final tables with an alarming regularity of late.

Two New Names in the Irish Top 20
It is Dan “NukeTheFish” Wilson who leads the way in Ireland, followed by Kevin “SuitedAcesBaby” Killeen, then one of two new faces in the Irish top 20.
The player known as “FoxyLisa” finds themselves in third place, only a handful of points away from climbing into second place. FoxyLisa recently won the Hot $215 at PokerStars for $8,566 and before that final table bubbled the $1,050 NL Hold’em WCOOP Wrap-Up for $11,829. To date, FoxyLisa has $1.42 million in online tournament winnings.
“Noogaii” is the other new name in the rankings this week, entering at sixth place in Ireland and an all-time high of 265th in the world. Noogaii only needs $494 more in cashes to break through the $500,000 mark something that should come with relative ease considering their recent $144,126 score from winning the $320 NL Hold’em WCOOP Event.
