A Quiet Week For The Irish Top 20

It has been a relatively quiet week for those finding themselves in the top 20 of the Irish rankings, although there were some cashes and wins of note enjoyed by the men and women from the Emerald Isle.

Toby Joyce won the Balboa $10,000 Gtd tournament at partypoker for $2,750 before finishing 11th in the PokerStars Omania High Roller for an additional $1,546.

Joyce’s fellow Irishman, James Noonan, put in plenty of volume over the past week and was rewarded with a victory in the Thursday Full KO 6-Max at, a result that netted him $7,427; Noonan was also the runner-up in the Hot €30 at PokerStars’ French site for $955.

A special mention has to go to Tomas Geleziunas who continues to register for, and cash in, tournaments like no other player we know. Geleziunas won the $1,000 Gtd 6-Max at partypoker for $429, the $600 Super Turbo Catfish at 888poker for $259, and the Saturday KOmania PLO8 Progressive KO at PokerStars for $1,284.
