SCOOP 2020 Day 14: Steve "Mr. Tim Caum" O'Dwyer Wins 25K High Roller

Steve "Mr, Tim Caum" O'Dwyer Wins 25K High Roller at 2020 SCOOP PokerStars

Day 14 was a massive day at the PokerStars 2020 Spring Championship Of Online Poker (SCOOP). The $25,000 Super High Roller crowned a winner in none other than high stakes legend Steve "Mr. Tim Caum" O'Dwyer, while the 'Beaker-army' of popular streamer and PokerStars ambassador Lex "L. Veldhuis" Veldhuis went nuts when their champion made it to the final 20 of the $5,200 High Roller.

Andras "probirs" Nemeth finished runner-up to O'Dwyer in the 25K High Roller for an incredible $403,096 payday. His hunger wasn't stilled, though, as Nemeth wrapped up SCOOP-52-M: $2,100 NLHE after for $157,735. An incredible day for the Hungarian professional, who won his third SCOOP-title and over half a million dollar total.

A total of nine champions were crowned on Wednesday, while several other interesting tournaments will be played out tonight. Read everything about what happened in the digital waters in our daily SCOOP recap!

9Samuel "€urop€an" VousdenFinland$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.
