UK & Ireland Online Poker Rankings: Wilson Returns to No. 1

UK & Ireland Online Poker Rankings
  • Patrick Leonard retains his number one rank in the UK while Dan Wilson returns to the summit in Ireland.

Patrick Leonard still enjoys a sizeable lead in the United Kingdom online poker rankings, supplied by PocketFives.com, and managed to put even more distance between himself and Conor “1_conor_b_1” Beresford.

Leonard won the $162 NLHE Win the Button Ultra Deep at PokerStars for $3,079 and followed up that impressive result with a fifth place finish in the $1,050 Sunday Grand PLO, also at PokerStars, for $10,319.

Beresford ensured that Leonard didn’t pull too far away from him in the race for number one by winning the Saturday Scuffle at PokerStars, a six-max progressive knockout tournament, for $9,378.

Up to sixth place this week is Scott “Aggro Santos” Margereson who won the Hot $109 at PokerStars for $8,066. Margereson also took down the $120,000 Whale at 888poker and banked $29,694 but that result is yet to be added to his profile and tally of scores.

Returning to the top 10 this week is one of the many Spaniards now living in the UK. The player known as “malakastyle” is now seventh in the UK after a strong of impressive results during the past few months. The Spanish grinder has more than $520,000 in online poker tournament winnings and has been ranked as highly as 72nd in the world.

Dan Wilson Reclaims Irish Top Spot

When PokerNewsupdated you on the online poker rankings last week, we said that the number one spot in Ireland would likely change hands several times over the next couple of months because the points difference between then number one James Noonan and Dan Wilson was so slight.

One week in and we already have the lead changing hands with Wilson reclaiming the number one rank. Wilson’s lead is less than 22 points, however.

Noonan should soar ahead of Wilson when his win in the partypoker Uppercut, a victory worth $8,188, is added to his profile. Noonan also took down the Big $16.50 at PokerStars and added $2,282 to his bankroll.

Elsewhere in Ireland, “FoxyLisa” won the $109 Bounty Builder at PokerStars for $8,878 and Nicholas “YerSoLucky” Newport triumphed in the Hot $55 at PokerStars and won $6,784
