  • Rob Tinnion's $314K score in the PokerStars SCOOP is the highlight of this week's edition of the Sunday Briefing.

PokerStarsSpring Championship Of Online Poker (SCOOP) threw up some massive scores for players calling the United Kingdom and Ireland home, including one weighing in at almost $315,000.

Rob “robtinnion” Tinnion, a two-time Sunday Million champion, helped himself to $314,794.10 by finishing second in the $1,050 no-limit hold’em two-day event. Tinnion was joined at that particular final table by Jack “jackziang” Salter and “gordon0410” who finished fifth and fourth for $114,022.98 and $159,957.02.

“Henwii22” took down the $1,050 no-limit hold’em Progressive Super-Knockout for $61,751.88 after a three-way chop, and Niall “Firaldo87” Farrell won the $2,100 no-limit hold’em Mix-Max for $159,040 after a heads-up chop with “ZhipOHoy” who collected $142,000.

SCOOP related shout outs also go to Tom “hitthehole” Middleton who was the second place finish in the $1,050 no-limit hold’em turbo ultra-deep for $83,437.50, and to the trio of Brits who finished 1-2-3 in the $2,100 no limit hold’em Heads-Up, “jamjam818” ($83,800), “dougiedan678” ($89,000), and “beginner27” ($36,000).

Reaching the final table was the UK’s Alan “TheScouse_AA” Aspinall who navigated his way to a fourth place finish worth a cool $80,220.

Another big partypoker tournament was the $200,000 guaranteed which saw “PartyTimePoker” outlast the majority of the 1,626-strong field before falling in second place, but not before negotiating a $24,054.59 prize as part of a three-way deal.

Over at 888poker, the Super XL Series helped to boost the attendance figures of several of the site’s biggest tournaments. For example, the $100,000 Baby Whale ended up with a $123,900 prize pool, of which $23,776.41 is now in the account of British grinder “telmrock” who won the event.

A couple of other deep runs include “teaap26” finishing eighth in the $30,000 Super XL Turbo Main Event for $976.50, and “cookstahorse” collecting $8,030 for their fourth place finish in the $110,000 Sunday Challenge.
