UK & Ireland Online Poker Rankings: Geilich Closing in on Number One Spot

Ludovic Geilich
  • Take a look at the top 20 online poker tournament players who call the UK and Ireland home.

Conor “1_conor_b_1” Beresford and Patrick “pleno1” Leonard may still be occupying first and second place in the PocketFives.com online poker rankings in the United Kingdom, but Ludovic “ludovi333” Geilich is doing everything he can to topple the duo.

Geilich is third in the UK and 27th in the world, although he was ranked as highly as ninth in the world during 2016. In the past week, Geilich has put together more than a dozen deep runs, with one of the highlights being a fifth-place finish in the $109 Sunday Wrap-Up at PokerStars for $2,370.

Oscar “MendaLerenda” Serradell is still in fourth place but could climb higher once two of his impressive results are added to his points tally. Serradell was the runner-up in the Hot $162 for $4,307 and then the third-place finisher in the Big $215 for $4,408, both at PokerStars.

Another player in hot form is Paul “Senterpied” Senter and he has climbed to 12th place in the UK as a result. Senter won the $44 NLHE 6-Max Progressive KO for $1,824 and the partypoker $10K Gtd Balboa for $2,513 before finishing third in the Microgaming €15,000 Sunday Showdown for $2,563.

Up to 15th place this week is Rick “TheClaimer” Trigg courtesy of winning the Hot $162 at PokerStars for $4,848 while Jonathan “proudflop” Proudflop finished second in the Big $215 for a $5,960 score.

James Noonan Leads in Ireland

James “Jaymo” Noonan is the man to catch in the Irish online poker rankings thanks in part to several final table finishes. Noonan bust in third-place from the $5K Gtd Rocky at partypoker for $810 and then was the seventh-place finisher in the $150K Gtd Main Event, also at partypoker, for $2,760.

Still in fourth-place but putting in incredible volume is Tomas “luckyo32” Geleziunas who this week was the runner-up in the $320 PLO8 6-Max Omania High Roller at PokerStars for $4,371. Geleziunas seems to be mixing in more PLO tournaments to his schedule and doing quite well in them, too.

The player known as “Noogaii” enjoyed a four-figure score this week when he finished third in the PokerStars Big $11 for $3,042 while Conor “ccoonnoorr” O’Driscoll climbed to sixth-place in Ireland after winning the $10,000 Deepstack Swordfish at 888poker for $2,304 and the $11 NLHE 6-Max Progressive KO at PokerStars for $590.

Lastly, a shout out to “rtspurs” who took down the PokerStars $82 H.O.R.S.E Sunday Special for $1,285.
