Stories from SCOOP winners

April 13, 2021inPoker

Throughout SCOOP 2021 we’ve been talking to some of the winners. Here’s what two of those winners had to say about their experience. 

Gilles Lamy

Gilles “SexualDrag0n” Lamy is a French player who has been playing poker for more than ten years. He won SCOOP 23-H $1,050 Stud Hi/Lo for $23,162 last week, a mixed game tournament that counts among his favourites.

“Always loved the mixed game so it’s very meaningful to me to earn my first SCOOP title in a not “no-limit” event. And obviously very happy to win a title on one of my first high SCOOP event.

“I don’t remember much of the tournament to be honest. I’ve been lucky enough to build a big stack from the beginning and almost never lost the chip lead. But it was a great experience to play against all these great mixed game players that are used to win these events since as far as I remember.

“I’m very grateful that PokerStars is still making space for these games, and I hope it will last.”

If you post something about me put my picture… so in 50 years my grandchildren will think I was a cowboy playing poker.”

19THEMACHINE83

Romania player 19THEMACHINE83 was another winner in the first week, winning SCOOP 13-L $109 NLHE 8-Max for $60,787.

“I chose to play thanks to some teachings from a friend and I never thought of winning a tournament and even less of being able to win so much money.

“Right now my hands are still shaking and I still can’t believe it.

“I will definitely play again also because the field is great and the tournaments and structures are terrific.”
