We continue our round-up of the Spring Championship Of Online Poker with a UK & Ireland focussed look at events 17 through 23.
SCOOP Event #17: No Limit Hold’em 6-Max Turbo Super-Knockout
Poker tournaments do not come much crazier than a six-max turbo super knockout format sported in Event #17. A staggering 16,763 bought into the $27 Low event meaning the prizes on offer were anything but low. There were no final table appearances for our compatriots, although “clucaspoker” finished 19th for $871.67.
It was British 1,2,6 in the $215 buy-in Medium event, even if we are trying to claim a Spaniard as one of our own – well he does live here! “Pollopopeye” lists the UK as home and that is good enough for us, especially as he took down event 17 for an impressive haul of $65,926.79. “Pollopopeye” defeated “ouchbadbeat” of the UK heads-up to secure that al-important win. A big shoutout to “Pe-T” for their sixth place finish, too.
Nicky “Cod Meharly” Evans progressed the furthest of our players in the $2,100 buy-in high Event but could only work his magic to a 14th place finish. That result banked Evans $7,260.07 in prize money and five bounties worth $1,025 each.
SCOOP Event #18: No Limit Hold’em 10-Max Shootout
Sit ‘n’ Go tournament specialists flocked to PokerStars for the 10-max Shootout event, an event that UK & Ireland players impressed in.
In the $27 buy-in event, “zamoS89” reached the penultimate table, while “MPH84” (10th) and “ShaneGlsd” (4th) reached the final table. As did Ireland’s “ros1987” who busted in third place for a $13,101.41 score.
Obviously not content with winning over $50,000 when he won SCOOP Event #15, Charlie “JIZOINT” Combes almost won a second SCOOP when he finished second in the $2,100 buy-in tournament. This result banked him $79,200 while fellow Brit “Rednaxela747” finished in third place for $53,460.
SCOOP Event #19: Pot Limit 5-card Omaha Rebuy
It may have only just been introduced to PokerStars customers but that did not stop 5-Card Omaha having its own event.
One player who is thankful for this exciting poker format being spread as a SCOOP event is the UK’s “I Am Benjami” who chopped the event four ways for $14,695.93 before going on to win the whole shebang! Boom!
“cluelessiam” (7th), “Jeremy069” (12th) and John “dagunman” O’Shea (18th) went the deepest of UK & Ireland players in the $109 Medium, while “Ledicus” (3rd), David “sexygee” Gent (5th) and “Irish Jack” (13th) all brought home sizable scores for their displays in the $1,050 buy-in High Event. Gent on in a superb run at the moment despite him being a cash game specialist; he is showing he can also be a great tourney donk!
SCOOP Event #20: No Limit Hold’em Zoom
The first Zoom Poker events took place on Saturday night and we had some good scores from our boys and girls. First, “Spades4Fun” finished 15th in the $27 buy-in event, then “Dsavo” fell in 11th place of the $215 buy-in event. But the biggest score of our folks went to Christopher “NigDawG” Brammer who came second in the $2,100 buy-in event for a cash haul of $131,955. Must be nice.
SCOOP Event #21 and #22: No Limit Hold’em
All three of Event #21’s tournaments are currently paused, awaiting for Day 2 to restart so we will bring you a recap of them tomorrow. We can tell you now that each of the three buy-ins is well into the money places and there are still scores of UK & Ireland players among the cashes. Let’s hope we can have even more final tables and wins to chat about on Tuesday.
SCOOP Event #23: Pot Limit Omaha 6-max Rebuy
The final SCOOP events on Sunday yielded even more impressive results. The $11 Low event saw “JONAH J” (11th) and “ratskerops” (10th) makes deep runs, while “kurakasa” (9th) “JayP-AA” (8th) and “papier-mashe” (3rd) all impressed in the $109 Medium.
The largest score of the night went the way of Elliot “CrazyElior” Sion who chopped the $1,050 buy-in High three ways for a $163,352.57 boost to his bankroll. A huge congratulations!
