Sunday Briefing: Stellar Sunday For Patrick Leonard
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.
