Yes, May has arrived and the PokerStars MTT Leaderboard has been whiped clean and is ready for players to show what they’re made of. Players who didn’t get a chance to let their true colors shine last month now have the opportunity to get their chips rolling in early. The fresh month looks like it’s already paying off for new players who haven’t yet had the privaledge of occupying a top ten position as there are several new faces climbing the ranks today.
Remember, FlopTurnRiver keeps track of the PokerStars Leaderboard results daily and keeps them archived on the PokerStars network page which can be found here: Leaderboard-Calendar. Simply scroll down to the leaderboard section and select whichever day you feel like viewing. It’s a great way to see how players are progressing as time goes on.

NE1ButBush04 is one of the newer players previously mentioned. In the time that I’ve been reviewing the PokerStars leaderboard I have not seen his name until today. Last month NE1ButBush04 hadn’t even occupied any of the 100 recorded places for April’s leaderboard. Unlike NE1ButBush04, BreakRibs held a leaderboard position last month but all the way down at 87th place. He’s gotten an early start this May for a decent chiplead on thegosu2 who’s in 3rd place this week. thegosu2 was another player who couldn’t be found in any of the 100 recorded places for April.
J Darnielle is the only player in the top ten this week that has shown any consistency over the past couple weeks. For April, J Darnielle secured a decent 6th place overall win. Returning in May he’s currently in the same position as April. Right below Darnielle, Jasonfp is currently in 7th place. Last month Jason placed 77th overall on the Pokerstars MTT Leaderboard.
crunchyclam7 (8th) and pkrjunkie28 (9th) are both new to the leaderboard and weren’t present last month. DNA2RNA is returning for another month after sitting in 26th place overall for April. DNA2RNA seems to be pulling ahead early on this month in 10th place.
Check back next week to see if any of these players have the consistency to stick around and see another week in the top ten!
