1. The headlines
It was a big weekend of SCOOP events, with lots to get through.
First the three headline events of the weekend, each featuring a guaranteed prize pool of $1 million.
The report for event 18-H includes Latin right from the start, but don’t let that put you off. How else would you learn that Felix piscic means “lucky fish”?
That also happens to be the name of the winner of that one. As Pauly McGuire reported, luckyfish89 took honors in this one, and a first prize of $104,935, plus 64,915 in bounties. Read that here.
As Joe Stapleton might say, find someone to hold your hair back, because the final table of SCOOP 21-H was sick.
As Martin Harris reported: “Practically all of those making it to the endgame in this one were familiar to online poker fans.”
They included Pedro “skyboy69” Oliveira, Ben “Ben86” Tollerene, Luke “Bit2Easy” Reeves, Craig “mcc3991” McCorkell, and Andrei “ragAAila19” Boghean.
It also featured Michiel “utreg” Brummelhuis, who only went and won it. That was worth $194,883 to the Dutchman, as you can read here.
That left SCOOP 27-H, which was hardly a cake walk.
David Aydt had the report of Jerry “hummylun” Wong’s win worth $86,046 and another $77,624 in bounties. Read about Wong’s win here.
Elsewhere Calvin “cal42688” Anderson recorded TWO wins over the weekend, winning SCOOP 19-H on Friday, and then SCOOP 26-H on Sunday for a combined $150,000. There were also wins for RunLikeGod, RuiNF, and Lena900.
