Congratulations to "FiatEruditio", Winner of SCOOP-53-M: $1,050 NLHE [8-Max, Progressive KO, Thursday Thrill], $1M Gtd for $154,986
Another champion has now been crowned in the PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker (SCOOP) 2021 in SCOOP-53-M: $1,050 NLHE [8-Max, Progressive KO, Thursday Thrill], $1M Gtd. This was a two-day event that pulled in 1,178 entries and just 142 returned for the final day. When the last chance saloon had closed for business on Day 2, it was Russia's "FiatEruditio"
reigning supreme for a total payday worth $154,986.
A stacked final table saw "FiatEruditio" start on top and somehow manage to keep that lead throughout the entirety of it. They collected four bounties at the last table of the night and when they cashed in their own to go along with those, it was a massive $74,109 in juicy KO's. The Russian added that to their $80,877 first-place money to bring their total prize money to a cool six-figure payday.
It seemed as if no one could get in the way of "FiatEruditio" who cruised into the winner's circle although it was no easy feat nonetheless. It was fellow Russian "Langolier86" who found themselves in a heads-up match against a colossal stack that was owned by the steamrolling "FiatEruditio". Just a few hands into heads up, "Langolier86" put their stack in with king-queen and they were called by a pair of fives. A nickel instantly landed on the flop and "Langolier86" was dubbed the runner-up, sending over the last bounty of the event to the champion.

Final Day Action
The one million guarantee freezeout had an outstanding turnout of 1,178 runners which soared right on by with a total prize pool of $1,178,000. Once the money was reached all players bagged up for a final day that guaranteed at least a min-cash worth $1,187 with the top dog pulling in $80,877, plus the always sought-after bounties that were still up for grabs every step along the way.
It took just under three hours of play to reach the final three tables and at that point, it was "jeyduverne" leading the way with poker all-star Andras "probirs" Nemeth close behind. One of the first players to drop from the final three tables was the start of day chip leader Martin "marlin5555" Raus who had a cold run of cards before ultimately putting it in with ace-queen versus the pockets threes of Vredaren. Raus failed to connect and the Canadian was sent out the door.

He ran ace-queen into the ace-king of "Billycadu242" and the rest is history.

Ketzer was in the lead for just a moment before an ace landed on the turn, hitting the leader with a pair to secure the pot and Ketzer was eliminated.
It was then down to five when "n3xD" moved in with king-queen versus the ace-jack of "MagischeM10". A turned ace sent "n3xD" to the rail and "MagischeM10" instantly shipped all of the chips over to "FiatEruditio" just hands later. "FiatEruditio" opened with kings and "MagischeM10" shoved their ace-jack, getting snapped by the kings. A flush draw landed on the turn for the short-stack but "FiatEruditio" faded the river, collecting another bounty as just three remained.
The Russian continued their terror, opening from the button with tens and "Billycapu242" then shoved with ace-five. "FiatEruditio" called and "Billycapu242" failed to land keep up, taking an exit in third place.
