Table Of Contents
Our friends over at PocketFives.com have updated their database and the latest online poker rankings for the United Kingdom and Ireland are available. Both Jonathan "proudflop" Proudfoot and Frank "Denman98" Lillis extended their leads over their respective chasing packs this week.
Proudfoot enjoyed a $44,710 score at GGPoker thanks to finishing fifth in the $1,050 GGMasters High Rollers event. That five-figure prize came a week after a $31,419 haul for a deep run in the $10,300 Super MILLION$ won by Michael Addamo for $325,957.
Former world number one, Chris "moorman1" Moorman, has been tearing it up at GGPoker, too. Moorman won the $525 High Rollers After Hours for $8,527 before taking down the $525 High Rollers Sunday Wrap-Up for $17,260. Moorman also reeled in a couple of other five-figure prizes, but they are not showing on his profile for some unknown reason.
Patrick "thebigdog09" Brooks finished third in a WSOP edition of the $525 Bounty Hunters HR MILLION, a result worth $35,590. Jareth "jareth3542" East won more than $4,300 in two separate GGPoker tournaments before he collected a $9,712 prize for a cash in the $5,000 6-Handed NLH Championship WSOP event.
Tenth place in the UK standings still belongs to Brandon "Tyrion2205" Sheils. He won $3,188, $2,376, and $2,485 in three different GGPoker MTTs on August 9
Finally, for the UK at least, John "JBradley" Bradley who continues crushing GGPoker’s $50, $80, and $100 buy-in tournaments, and who was the runner-up in a $210 Bounty Hunters Special for $4,793. Bradley is up to 11th in the UK, only a handful of points behind Sheils.

Lillis Continues to Dominate in Ireland
Frank "Denman98" Lillis has a lead of more than 1,500 points in Ireland simply because his incredible run of form shows no signs of waning. He added $8,096 and then $11,114 to his bankroll early last week, the latter a result of a runner-up finish in the WSOP Online: $525 Bounty Hunters HR at GGPoker.
Lillis switched sites to PokerStars where he finished third in the $215 Sunday Warm-Up for $5,904 before returning to GGPoker to finished 14th in the $1,050 GGMasters High Rollers for another $6,874.
Alex "FutureofMe" Kulev is doing everything he can to keep tabs on Lillis, but it feels like he is swimming against the tide. Even Kulev’s victory in the $210 Bounty Hunters Special, a result worth $5,458, failed to make a dent in Lillis’ lead.
Leitrim’s Sven "SvenCalls" McDermott got his hands on a $15,926 prize this week after he busted in third place from the WSOP Online: $250 Daily Main Event. Only Joshua McCully and champion "DegenerateG" outlasted McDermott.
Dara "Doke" O’Kearney was another Irishman in the winner’s circle this week, having won the WSOP Online: $210 Daily Heater Bounty Turbo for $4,325. An impressive victory by the man who literally wrote the book on PKO tournaments.
A 99th place finish in the $1,500 MILLIONAIRE MAKER bracelet event at GGPoker for Conor "ccoonnoorr" O’Driscoll netted him $7,398 and enough points to climb to tenth place in Ireland.
And finally, David "Laois Hammer" Scully returns to the Irish top 20 after a fifth-place finish in the PokerStars Sunday Storm worth an impressive $3,593 for his $11 buy-in.
