Spartan Ops Leaderboards.

Anyway the last update on the board says im 163. I probably played 20 matches maybe. Took me about 8 hours. So how #1 has 40,000 more points means he had to have played 20+ hours or has found a glitch. The question I had though was after I max out for a day, can I continue playing to get points even though my character does not receive the points?
