Fintan "EasyWithAces" Hand Wins the 2021 SCOOP-82-H: $5,200 NLHE [8-Max, Progressive KO, High Roller] ($232,156)

After coming into the final table, third in chips, PokerStars Team Online member, Fintan "EasyWithAces" Hand has won the 2021 SCOOP-82-H: $5,200 NLHE [8-Max, Progressive KO, High Roller] for $232,156 which included $136,719 in bounties. The tournament attracted 155 unique players to Day 1 who reentered 67 times to get to 222 entries and a prize pool of $1,110,000 with the lion share being awarded on the final table.

According to his profile on the PokerStars website, Hand started as a poker dealer but quickly realized that there was more money that could be earned by being a poker player. The Twitch streamer claimed his first SCOOP title in 2020 when he won SCOOP 69-H: $1,050 NLHE [Afternoon Deep Stack], $350K Gtd for $73,652 and has now more than tripled that result with his second title.

Hand mentioned on the PokerStars stream that he was put into the tournament by his sponsor and was super grateful already. He could be seen dancing away on his own stream towards the final minutes of the tournament but the final hands were not streamed as he suffered from a power cut according to James Hartigan on the PokerStars stream.

Lucas "landapincha" Landa held the chip lead until the heads-up battle started before Hand came from behind to win the event. Landa qualified into the event via a $530 satellite and can also see an incredible return on investment with this result with a $207,866 result including $89,219 in bounties.

The final table was full of one big name after another with Jon "luckyfish89" Clark (third - $78,487), Andy "BowieEffect" Wilson (fourth - $79,496), Jareth "jareth3542" East (fifth - $56,576), Marius "DEX888" Gierse (sixth - $33,194), Thomas "WushuTM" Muehloecker ($34,848), "hello_totti" (eighth - $20,890), and Wiktor "Iimitless" Malinowski (ninth - $28,335) all battling it out for huge prizes and SCOOP glory at the final table.
