As the month of January closed out, so did the monthly tournament leaderboard race on PokerStars. In the end it came down to the wire, but not much changed in the last few days of the month. SpaceyFCB held onto his place at the top and took down the $5000 first prize offered up by PokerStars with just over 8700 chips. Also standing strong was VerySexual, who locked up second place with over 8000 chips and took home the $3000 second place prize. Rounding out the top three was AJinOK, who pushed hard late but couldn’t overtake VerySexual and had to settle for a $2000 reward.
Picking up $1000 for a fourth place finish was buller00, who also held onto his place over the last 4 days of the month. The fifth place finisher was one of the only big surprises at the end of the month, as DESS66 surged from the mid-thirties to fifth place, picking up nearly 1500 chips in the last four days of the month. For his efforts he received $750 in prize money from PokerStars. blumenkind53 and BluNTzz549 took home $500 and $400 respectively, as they finished up in sixth and seventh place. Rounding out the top 10 were jonyctt, TheLipoFund, and kekec24 who won $350, $300, and $250 for their efforts this month.
The players finishing in 11-25 places would all take home $200, while the pay dropped to $150 for the players in 26-50. The amounts continued to drop, but players rounding out the top 100 all received $100 dollars, while $50 went to the people who finished in 101-200 places.

1. SpaceyFCB – 8706.92 chips ($5000)
