The 2009 Poker Pro Lab Top Shark Player of the Year leaderboards have been officially finalized, which means that the 2010 races are just beginning. And the action has already been intense as “bigdogpckt5s” and “DutchSlugger” have jumped out to leads on our Multi Table Tournament and Sit and Go Tournaments leaderboards.
“bigdogpckt5s” has claimed first on the Top Shark of the Year leaderboards after excellent back-to-back days on January 3rd and January 4th. On January 3rd, bigdogpckt5s (whose real name is Casey Jarzabek) played in the Titan Poker $250,000 Guaranteed (rebuys) tournament. Jarzabek bested the field of 1,168 players, and claimed the top prize of $77,976.
As if his big finish in the $250,000 Guaranteed wasn’t enough, Jarzabek came back the next day and finished 3rd in the PokerStars’ 500 ($500k Guaranteed), which earned him $47,500. After his big finishes on the 3rd and 4th of this month, bigdogpckt5s netted a total of $125,476, and is currently sitting well ahead of the other players on the Top Shark of the Year Multi Table Tournaments leaderboard.
Jarzabek better not get too comfortable though because Sean “metfan4590” Ripp is fast on his heals after placing first in the Full Tilt Poker $750,000 Guaranteed, which earned him $123,870. This large chunk of money has vaulted Ripp into second place, and has him eyeing a possible run at the top spot.
On the Sit and Go Tournaments leaderboard, “DutchSlugger” has maneuvered into first place on the strength of multiple big SNG finishes while “wienodj5” has pulled into second place. “didipoker55” is also coming on strong having moved up several spots over the last few days.
There is still a lot of poker to be played though so the leaderboard races will no doubt be changing over the course of the year. It will be quite interesting to see if any of the old faces from last year’s leaderboard make a run at the title this year.
