Fintan "EasyWithAces" Hand Wins PokerStars SCOOP-82-H: $5,200 NLHE [8-Max, Progressive KO, High Roller] for $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.
Hand beat Lucas "landapincha" Landa who started the day as the chip leader and kept that position until the heads-up battle started. Landa got into the tournament by qualifying in a $530 satellite and can also see an incredible return on investment with this result.

Final Table Action
No one at the final table started with a short stack as the average was at 77 big blinds when action resumed but within the first 10 minutes, Wiktor "Iimitless" Malinowski fell to Hand while "hello_totti" was taken out by Landa. But this did not set the pace for the rest of the tournament as seven-handed play lasted almost 2 full hours with Jareth "jareth3542" East doubling up twice before Thomas "WushuTM" Muehloecker was eliminated by Jon "luckyfish89" Clark.
East doubled up again for Marius "DEX888" Gierse to go next when all his chips went to Landa. East left the final table a few minutes later when Andy "BowieEffect" Wilson took him out. Wilson was second in chips but doubled Clark up to then bust to the hands of Landa in fourth place. Hand held the shortest stack at that point but found a double through Landa to get even with Clark. But Hand put the pressure on his opponents and soon Clark was eliminated by Landa when he ran his ace-eight into the aces of the Argentinian.
Heads-up lasted around 40 minutes with Landa holding an almost 2:1 chip lead to Hand but the Irishman didn't roll over in any way. He took over the chip lead when he caught Landa's bluff and lost it for a little bit before claiming it back and then increasing it. In the end, Landa three-bet jammed his 35 big blinds in with ace-queen and Hand looked him up with pocket fours. The four on the flop gave him a set but he improved it to a full house on the turn to take the tournament down.
