Leaderboard Rundown: sprstoner rules FTP
Even with all the holiday festivities, there were plenty of online poker tournaments to be played in December, and plenty of players who found the time to play them.
Today we're checking out the top five MTT leaderboard finishers at four major poker sites - PokerStars, Full Tilt Poker, PartyPoker and Everest Poker - to see which players earned the most Christmas cheer for the month.
For the third straight month, Shawn "sprstoner" Glines continued to run good on Full Tilt Poker, as he held on to the lead once again, with thousands of points separating him and the second-place contender.
Rounder63 finished just out of the top 5 last month, but he's now moved from sixth to first. There were no new faces this time, as everyone in the top five finished 37th or better in November.
Compared to last month's big shakeup, the PokerStars top 5 list was more stable. Four out of five entries appeared on last month's ranking, but none placed higher than 46th in November, meaning everyone in the top 5 made a huge jump over the holidays.
New at the top is known Brazilian EPT player Luis "mestrefilipe" Filipe, whose online name appropriately means "Master Felipe" in English.
Also making a showing are well-known MTT fiends Brad "bd3109" Albrinck, James "BreakRibs" Kilarjian, and Robert "perky264" Perkins.
Over on PartyPoker, November must have been a good time to be in the 40s, as that meant a top 2 finish for a couple players in December. Mstrcmmndr moved from 49th to first, and Krishna108 went from 41st to second.
Last month's leaderboard winner OmarComingYo fell back to his October spot of fourth place, but has remained remarkably consistent from month to month.
Four out of five of Everest Poker's finishers made at least top 25 the previous month, with Slayer_pol going from absent in October to fourth in November to first in December. That's quite a run.
The lone new face on December's list is fourth-place EKKEVIN, and we'll have to watch and see if he also guns for first in the new year.
Players earn points by finishing well in multi-table tournaments, and players who place in the leaderboard earn prizes depending on the site.
