Sweeney Closes the Gap at the Top in Ireland

Sean “monkeybudgie” Prendiville is still the man to catch in the Irish online poker rankings although Ronan “Sw33ney” Sweeney is doing his best to close the gap on him.

Sweeney bagged four four-figure scores last week, including a $4,636 addition to his bankroll after he finished second in the PokerStars Hot $215. He also managed a $20,905 score but that came too late to be added to his profile at the last update, more on that next week.

Their best results included winning the $82 NL08 6-Max PKO for $1,699 and finishing third in the Omania High Roller: $215 NL08, $10K Gtd for $2,208.
