Steve "Mr. Tim Caum" O'Dwyer Defeats Andras "probirs" Nemeth in SCOOP-52-H: $25,000 NLHE [8-Max, Super High Roller]
Steve "Mr. Tim Caum" O'Dwyer has taken down the PokerStars 2020 SCOOP 52-H: $25,000 Super High Roller for $521,598 by defeating Andras "probirs" Nemeth heads-up in a field of 89 entries which created a prize pool of $2,182,725.
O'Dwyer has already collected over $6 million in online cashes and $30 million in live tournament cashes, this poker superstar has been around for a while and can always be found at the top of the results in any of the tournaments around the world and online.
|1||Steve "Mr. Tim Caum" O'Dwyer||Ireland||$521,598|
|2||Andras "probirs" Nemeth||Hungary||$403,096|
|3||Chun Lei "SamRostan" Zhou||Macau||$311,517|
|4||Joao "Naza114" Vieira||Portugal||$240,744|
|5||Talal "raidalot" Shakerchi||United Kingdom||$186,049|
|6||Vyacheslav "VbV1990" Buldygin||Russia||$143,781|
|7||Ole "wizowizo" Schemion||Germany||$111,115|
|8||Fedor "CrownUpGuy" Holz||Germany||$85,871|
|9||Samuel "€urop€an" Vousden||Finland||$68,778|
A crucial hand towards O'Dwyer's victory happened with seven players remaining. Short-stacked, the American transplant four-bet shoved all-in with ace-queen after Ole "wizowizo" Schemion had opened and Nemeth had three-bet. Schemion then five-bet shoved pocket kings all in, only to be met by a snap call from Nemeth with pocket aces. The flop, however, brought two queens to secure a triple-up for O'Dwyer, while Schemion was gone in seventh.
O'Dwyer rode that good fortune all the way to a three-handed battle with Nemeth and Chun Lei "SamRostan" Zhou that lasted for several hours. Nemeth then took out Zhou and started the heads-up with a 2:1 chip lead, but O'Dwyer got back into it to overtake the lead. In the final hand, Nemeth's ace-king fell to O'Dwyers king-ten when the latter rivered a ten to secure the victory.
Veldhuis Among Big Stacks; "BOOGANDEHAH" Leads Last 20 in SCOOP-57-H: $5,200 NLHE [High Roller]
It was a long day at the online tables for all those what wanted to ensure a slice of the $1,000,000 prize pool in the latest PokerStars 2020 Spring Championship of Online Poker Event High Roller event. Ultimately it took nearly eight and a half hours to whittle down a field of 184 entries to the final 20 in SCOOP-57-H: $5,200 NLHE [High Roller] and conclude Day 1 once the money bubble had burst.
Among those returning for Day 2 will also be PokerStars ambassador Lex "L. Veldhuis" Veldhuis and he has the fourth-biggest stack out of all those that advanced with 4,421,903 to his name. The Dutchman streamed the action and unlike previous High Roller tournaments of the 2020 SCOOP, he entered late and all three major setup hands in the later stages ended in his favor this time.
Veldhuis scored a massive pot when he turned quads sevens to beat the top full house kings over sevens of Samuel "€urop€an" Vousden. His straight and flush draw then got there to crack the aces of Naoya "nkeyno" Kihara and he turned a king-high straight with a flush draw to send Juan "Malaka$tyle" Pardo with a set of nines to the rail.
Three players in particular dominated the bubble action as Canada's "BOOGANDEHAH" (6,312,129), Dutchman Job "DeadNylan" Greben (5,860,740), and Hungary's "xnrobix" (4,999,639) hold the top three spots. Plenty of other notables are in contention, however, and it won't be an easy ride for any of the remaining 20 contenders to earn the next SCOOP title.
Eight Players Will Return for Day 2 of SCOOP-58-H: $2,100 NLHE [Heads-Up]
Day 1 of the PokerStars 2020 SCOOP-58-H: $2,100 NLHE [Heads-Up] is over, and after more than seven hours of play, there are just eight players left in the field. Those are the players that won all their heads-up clashes and managed to reach the end of Day 1, securing a place into the money and returning tomorrow for a run into the first prize.
The event had a cap of 128 players and 119 were registered at the start of the day, with no late registration available. The guaranteed prize pool was $200,000 but the event managed to surpass it, reaching 238,000. Many familiar names managed to advance to Day 2 and the list consists of Joris "BillLewinsky" Ruijs, Dominik "Bounatirou" Nitsche, Francisco "Tomatee" Benitez, Connor "blanconegro" Drinan, "CatLover666", "Grindation", "fetopoker1", and "wubblepig".
