Leonard Reclaims UK Online Poker Rankings Top Spot

[B]Patrick “pleno1” Leonard[/B] finds himself back at the top of the United Kingdom Online Poker Rankings, provided by PocketFives.com, albeit by the slimmest of margins. Leonard occupies first place courtesy of his 8,112 points with Jonathan “proudflop” Proudfoot in second place with 8,088 points!

Leonard won $5,690 for his eighth-place finish in the PokerStars $1,050 Sunday High Roller this week, and the points earned from that were enough to push him back in front of Proudfoot.

Proudfoot enjoyed a handful of four-figure hauls during the past seven days, although the $7,909 he collected for winning the GGPoker High Rollers Daily Special did not add any rankings points to his tally. Perhaps that will rectify itself over the weekend.

Another missing score is the massive €119,624 Brandon “Tyrion2205” Sheils banked at GGPoker. Sheils reeled in a career-best online score after his deep run in the Battle of Malta Main Event at GGPoker, but the result seems to be missing from his profile page. Hopefully, this will be added retrospectively because it would see Sheils climb to an all-time global rankings high.

Conor “1_conor_b_1” Beresford returned to the action after a two-month hiatus and helped himself to a $3,369 score at PokerStars. Also at PokerStars, recently added member of Team Online, Sam “TheSquid” Grafton was the runner-up in the $530 Sunday Marathon, a result that saw Grafton reel in $6,769.

There is a newcomer to the UK top 20, Robert “Havana” Haigh. Patrick Lauber removed his details from his profile, so vanished from the rankings. Haigh, a UK-based German, took his place. He has more than $4.3 million in online poker tournament winnings.

The Irish Online Poker Rankings Top 20 is almost exactly the same as last week with Frank “Denman98” Lillis leading the way in the Emerald Isle. Lillis won more than $3,100 for his sixth-place finish in the GGPoker $525 Bounty Hunter HR, and another $3,932 for a third place finish in the $125 Daily Special, also at GGPoker.

Conor “ccoonnoorr” O’Driscoll climbed one place to 11th in Ireland on the back of a $1,476 score for finishing second in the PokerStars $55 Daily Marathon.

Louise “lou045” Butler was another Irish player enjoying themselves at PokerStars. Butler won the $11 No-Limit Hold’em for $393 and followed that up with a victory in the $44 Bounty Builder for more than $2,000. Butler is now ranked 16th in Ireland, and is the number one Irish female grinder.
