Proudfoot Closes The Gap in the UK Online Rankings
Table Of Contents
There was a distinct lack of volume among the top 20 in the United Kingdom Online Poker Rankings, provided by PocketFives.com, which is probably because most were watching England attempting to bring football home in the Euro 2020 competition. One man did play some poker, and managed to walk away with some significant prizes.
Jonathan “proudflop” Proudfoot is now within touching distance of Patrick “pleno1” Leonard at the top of the pile. Proudfoot reeled in a $22,344 haul when he won the High Rollers Blade Closer at GGPoker on July 14. The north-east grinder also banked several four-figure prizes, including one worth $6,104.
Patrick “JaegsPL” Lauber padded his bankroll with $6,230 thanks to a deep run in a Brazil Series of Poker event at PokerStars. Lauber finished second in the $109 NLHE 8-Max Deepstack after losing to “FAT3333” heads-up.
We have to doff our cap to John “JBradley” Bradley who continues to crush the $100 Daily Turbo tournaments at GGPoker. They do not award any leaderboard points, but Bradley seems to have an almost unnatural ability to take them and the Daily Hyper tournaments down. he is currently on $1.8 million in winnings, and it will not take long to eclipse $2 million at the rate he is going at.

Lillis Unstoppable and O’Kearney Wins Again
The Irish top 20 is almost exactly the same as last week, with Frank “Denman98” Lillis tearing away at the top of the pile. Lillis is showing no signs of slowing down just yet, as is evident by him winning the $250 Fifty Stack at GGPoker for $8,753. That victory came a day after Lillis scooped $6,146 for a final table appearance in the $1,050 Super Tuesday, also at GGPoker.
Dara “Doke” O’Kearney climbed one place to sixth in Ireland following his victory in the €10,000 Fists of Fury Rebuy event, a tournament that runs on iPoker Network sites such as Betfair, William Hill, and Paddy Power Poker. O’Kearney netted $3,186 for his win, which came a week after finishing second in the same tournament.
A shout out has to go to Brenden “daehbonk” Naughton who enters the Irish Top 10 this week.
