The turbo-charged event featured a final table full of huge names including the United Kingdom's Patrick "pads1161" Leonard (second - $109,898), American poker refugee Calvin "cal42688" Anderson (fourth - $62,912) registered at PokerStars under a Mexican flag, and Germany's Pascal "Päffchen" Hartmann (sixth - $37,169) registered in Austria.

The following day was even bigger moneywise for Romanovsky as he took second place in the SCOOP-14-H: $25,000 NLHE [8-Max, High Roller], $2,500,000 Gtd for $442,299 after firing three bullets. Hungary's Andras "probirs" Nemeth, who is often seen playing high-stakes cash games, shipped the event for $576,087.

In addition to these three amazing scores, Romanovsky has managed four other in-the-money finishes. His utter early domination has led to him being on top of the 2018 SCOOP Overall Leaderboard with 335 points, which will award the winner a coveted Platinum Pass valued at $30,000 to the $25,000 PokerStars Players NL Hold’em Championship and a trophy.

Romanovsky is also on top of the 2018 SCOOP High Leaderboard with 280 points, which awards the winner a trophy and $10,000 in cold hard cash.

The Ukranian's huge SCOOP has put him close to a monumental milestone. Romanovsky is now less than $200,000 shy of becoming just the ninth player in the world to surpass $10 million in online cashes among players registered at PocketFives with their screennames.
