Teun "tinnoemulder" Mulder Wins the SCOOP-33-H: $10,300 NLHE PKO High Roller

A new first-time champion has been crowned during the 2020 PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker (SCOOP) and the hot streak for Dutch poker players continues as Teun "tinnoemulder" Mulder rode to victory in under four hours in SCOOP-33-H: $10,300 NLHE PKO High Roller after defeating Niklas "Lena900" Astedt in heads-up.

It was the far-biggest cash for Mulder and he adds $278,785.25 in bounty and cash prizes to his bankroll after defeating a field of 117 entries, which contained some of the biggest names of the online poker world and created a prize pool of $1,170,000. While the Dutchman may not be as prolific on the live poker circuit yet, he has already cashed for more than $3 million in MTT's online of which more than $2 million are recorded under his moniker "tinnoemulder" on PokerStars.

It took fewer than four hours to reduce the 15 Day 1 survivors to a winner and Mulder had to overcome 10 former SCOOP champions of which seven made it to the final table. Andras "probirs" Nemeth led the field into the final day and retained the top spot ahead of Thomas "WushuTM" Muehloecker when the final table of the last nine was formed within half an hour of play. Nemeth was unable to score a third SCOOP title and finished third, Muehloecker had to settle for fourth place.
