UK & Ireland Online Poker Rankings: Leonard and Wilson Return to the Top

Patrick Leonard

Both the United Kingdom and Ireland’s online poker tournament rankings, provided by, have new names at the top of their respective leaderboards with Patrick Leonard and Daniel Wilson returning to the number one spot.

partypoker ambassador Leonard soared to the top of the UK rankings after trailing Conor “1_conor_b_1” Beresford for several weeks; Leonard now enjoys a lead of more than 400 points. Leonard’s massive $207,978 score for winning the partypoker POWERFEST #46-H: $1 Million Gtd earned him enough points to climb to the top of the UK’s chart and return to the worldwide top 10 where he currently sits eighth.

Beresford kept tabs on Leonard by winning the $530 Bounty Builder at PokerStars for $18,413 and has secured two victories since, including one worth $35,521, although those last two results will not be added to Beresford’s profile until the next database refresh.

Jonathan “proudflop” Proudfoot still occupies third-place in the UK standings despite some impressive results at partypoker. Proudfoot took down the $20K PKO High Roller Warm Up for $13,001 and then won the $40K Gtd High Roller for $10,345 on the same night. Those two results should close the gap on the runaway top two.

We have to give a mention to UK-based Spaniard Javier “que_te_crio” Fernandez Alonso who has been tearing up the virtual felt of late. After winning the partypoker Uppercut for $10,831, Alonso finished third in the site’s Eliminator Warm Up PKO for $2,330 then finished third in the PokerStars Hot $162 for $2,127 and seventh in the $1,050 Thursday Thrill for $5,378.
