Two of the finest poker players are battling it out right through the end of the year to see who will be the United Kingdom’s top-earning online player of 2014. As it stands now with two weeks/updates left to go, the man on top is Patrick Leonard. He’s a remarkably strong player based out of Newcastle upon Tyne in the U.K. Although his age isn’t listed online, his photos (such as the one nearby) show he’s likely somewhere in his 20s or early 30s (at the most).
According to Poker News, they expect Leonard and his main competition, Vicente Delgado, to duel it out until the end of the year. Apparently the two have been “leapfrogging” one another for the top spot throughout 2014, though it’s looking good for Leonard as we get closer to January. He’s a solid 500 points ahead of his competition, so it’s highly likely that we’ll see Patrick Leonard named the number-one online player in the U.K.
