The Pennsylvania Spring Championship of Online Poker has crossed the halfway mark. With more highlights including this weekend’s Main Events yet to come, PASCOOP has already had a greater than average share of tourney thrills.
The series has also awarded a greater than average amount of prize money, too, with more than $1.32 million awarded through the first 69 tournaments.
There have been nearly 29,000 entries in PASCOOP events so far.
The PASCOOP is following a “triple-SCOOP” format this time around, with “high,” “medium,” and “low” buy-in tournament for each event. With 40 events, that means 120 distinct tournaments.
The guaranteed prize pools for all those tourneys add up to just over $2 million, but with most guarantees eclipsed so far PASCOOP is ahead of that pace through Sunday’s action.
The largest first prize won so far was by “jbrink” in Event #20-H, the $200 NLHE Sunday Special. “jbrink” took away $17,737.55 following a heads-up deal.
That just beat the $16,970.31 that “pariszoo11” earned for winning Event #11-H, the $2,000 NLHE High Roller. Speaking of deals, that tournament ended with an unusual nine-handed chop, and in fact runner-up “doubtfire1951” earned a bit more, claiming a $17,470.61 prize.
Other highlights so far include a number of double-champions, of which “jbrink” is one. Here’s a list of who has two 2021 PASCOOP titles to this point:
Also of note, a couple of PokerStars PA ambassadors have notched some good finishes so far.
Mark “naigo1” Foresta has gone relatively deep a couple of times, just missing the final table in Event #7-H where he finished ninth.
Meanwhile Kevin “whoopsboom” Becker (a.k.a. “AccidentalGrenade”) has compiled a list of close calls so far, collecting a couple of third-place showings (in Events #17-H and #18-L) plus a couple of other Top 10 finishes.
As noted, the two-day Main Events are coming up this Sunday, May 2. The “high” Main Event has a $300 buy-in and a $200,000 guarantee. The “Main Event – Mid” costs $75 to play with a $40,000 guarantee. And the “Main Event – Mini” is just $30 with a $20,000 guarantee.
Satellites for all PASCOOP events are ongoing. Don’t forget as well the PASCOOP Depositor Freeroll on Sunday, May 2 at 2 p.m.
Any PokerStars PA player who deposits at least $30 between now and 1:59 p.m. ET on May 2 while using the bonus code “PASCOOP” gets a free entry into the event. The top 50 finishers in the Depositor Freeroll will win entries into the $300 Main Event later that day, which means a total of $15,000 worth of Main Event tickets will be up for grabs.
Here’s a look at all the prize pools and payouts so far along with all of the PASCOOP through the first 23 events (69 tournaments).
