1. The biggest results of the day

One of the highlights of the day was Niall “Firaldo87” Farrell. He won SCOOP 3-H last night, collecting a first prize of more than $100,000.

The two biggest events of the day were SCOOP 4-M and 4-L. Each had a guarantee of $1 million.

SCOOP 4-M was won by XD89lol. That was worth $196,472 to the Finn, which you can read about here.

In SCOOP 4-L Javier “minusth3bear” Zarco was having the same effect. He got the better of Toby “810ofclubs” Lewis and Calvin “cal42688” Anderson at the final table to pick up a first prize of $233,909. Read that report here.
