Sunday Briefing: Stellar Sunday For Patrick Leonard

Sunday Briefing
  • Patrick Leonard reached the final table of three High Roller events at partypoker on Feb. 12.

Patrick Leonard, the current number one ranked online poker tournament player from the United Kingdom, enjoyed a stellar Sunday on Feb. 12 thanks to reaching the final table of three high roller tournaments at partypoker.

Leonard finished fifth, third and first in a trio of $530 buy in tournaments with his largest cash weighing in at $22,050 and his overall haul coming in at more than $40,000. Once added to his PocketFives profile, it is likely these impressive cashes will put a significant gap between himself and his nearest rival Conor “1_conor_b_1” Beresford.

Also at partypoker, Rick “tHeClaImEr1” Trigg finished sixth in the $50,000 Gtd Weigh-In and turned $109 into $2,839.

Over at PokerStars, the Irish player known as “Noogaii” won the $109 Sunday Cooldown after a heads-up chop with Canada’s “chinell5”. Noogaii walked away with $18,653, almost $1,400 less than the eventual runner-up due to the deal.

There were a trio of Union Jacks on display in the final table results of the $215 Sunday Supersonic. UK-based Spaniard Oscar “MendaLerenda” Serradell finished fourth for $10,458, “imrano” was the fifth place finisher and collected $6,836 and Ireland’s now UK-based Dan “NukeTheFish!” Wilson bust in sixth place for $4,468.

Scotland’s Ludovic “ludovi333” Geilich narrowly missed out on a final table appearance in the $1,050 Sunday Grand PLO event, falling in seventh place for $7,891. Falling in a similar position in the $215 Weekender was “DrAnubis” who was the sixth place finisher for $2,148 while “brookie8888” saw their $109 Sunday Starter quest end with a fourth place finish worth $2,799.

Across to 888poker now where Sebastian “iknowmybody” Saffari took down the $80,000 Sunday Challenge for $16,414 and four other British players reached the final table. “akoiza” fell in third place for $8,754, “MOI_est_JEAN” bust in fifth for $4,596, “mhorton” was the sixth place finisher for $3,720, and “gull314” fell in eighth place for $1,969.

There was another UK player at the final table of the $120,000 Mega Deep, “HappyHour4U” finished in fifth place for $7,633 while Chris “bluecheek” Moore was the eighth place finisher in the $100,000 Baby Whale, a finish worth $2,760.
