UK & Ireland Online Poker Rankings: Matt Eardley Hits All-Time High

Online poker rankings
  • Matt Eardley enters the UK online poker rankings top 20 and climbs to an all-time high worldwide.

There is a new name in the top 20 of the PocketFives.com United Kingdom online poker rankings, a name that has also hit an all-time high in the worldwide standings. Step forward, Matt “eardleym” Eardley.

Eardley comes into the UK top 20 in 19th place and has also climbed to 191st in the entire world. With more than $1.03 million in online tournament winnings, Eardley is ranked number one on Derbyshire. The bulk of Eardley’s recent play stems from partypoker where he can brag of a third-place finish in the $20K Gtd High Roller for $4,039 and a fourth-place in the $100K Gtd High Roller for $6,198 in the past week.

Ludovic “ludovi333” Geilich should close the gap between himself in third-place and second-placed Patrick “pleno1” Leonard once his victory in the $1,050 Sunday Grand PLO is added to his PocketFives account, while Dan “Deepincidurr” Daw has climbed one place on the back of a third-place finish in the PokerStars Big $55 for $4,114 and winning the Hot $109, also at PokerStars, for $6,870.

A Quiet Week for the Irish Contingent

Like the UK, it was a quiet week for the Irish grinders, fuelled partly by many returning home from the World Series of Poker and needing a well-earned rest plus great weather drawing people away from their computers.

James “Jaymo” Noonan is still the man to catch in the Irish standings and cemented his number one spot with a win in the partypoker $5K Gtd Apollo for $1,785.

Daragh “daragh999” Davey, an Irishman based in Malta, improved his ranking slightly on the back of a third-place finish in the XTASE tournament over at Winamax while Gary “relaxnspew” McGinty will see his position in Ireland improve once his victory in the PokerStars $109 Saturday KO Late Edition, which was worth $4,450, is added to his points tally.
