UK & Ireland Online Poker Rankings: Leonard and Wilson Lead

UK & Ireland Online Poker Rankings
  • Patrick Leonard and Dan Wilson are the players to catch in the UK & Ireland online poker rankings.

Former world number one Patrick Leonard still leads in the PocketFives.com UK online poker rankings and does so by more than 740 points from Conor Beresford and more than 1,000 from Ludovic Geilich.

Up one place to fifth this week is UK-based Spaniard Juan Pardo thanks in part to him finishing second in the Partypoker High Roller for a $14,939 score. Also climbing up the standings is Sam Grafton after winning the $5,000 Gtd Creed twice in three days at partypoker for almost $4,000 combined, then taking down the $109 NLHE at PokerStars for an additional $2,051.

Two other players in the top 20 ranked UK-based players secured a trio of three-figure scores during the past seven days. Jamie O’Connor finished fourth in the Big $109, third in the $109 NLHE 6-Max Progressive KO, and fifth in the $109 Bounty Builder all at PokerStars for more than $7,600, while “FouEnculePL” had a deep run in the Sunday Million, was the fifth place finish in the $55 Sunday Stack, and finished second in the Big $11 for over $8,900.

Dan Wilson Soaring Ahead in Ireland

Dan Wilson has a sizeable lead in the Irish online poker rankings and shows no signs of letting the chasing pack catch him.

Wilson bagged a $6,000 cash haul by finishing fifth in the partypoker High Roller and won the PokerStars Hot $162 for a cool $15,203 in the past week, which helped him extend his lead at the top of the rankings to almost 600 points.

Toby Joyce enjoyed a massive $53,585 score on November 27 when he won the PokerStars Sunday Warm-Up and looks the most likely player to catch Wilson, although doing so by the end of the current year is unlikely due to the points difference.

A shout out also to James Noonan who added $7,214 to his lifetime winnings by finishing as the runner-up in the PokerStars Hot $109, and to Marc “sluglife” Macdonnell who finished third in a PokerStars Hot $109 for $9,372.
