SCOOP 2015: Mercier, Mizzi, Moneymaker, and more

Any good showman--the kind who looks good in a top hat and is comfortable around large animals--knows it's good to start off any public spectacle with a bang, a crash, or some otherwise hair-parting explosion.

Apparently the people behind the Spring Championship of Online Poker got the memo.

With only a couple days gone, we've seen why this series is the biggest of the year. Guaranteed prize pools? Who needs them with these kinds of crowds? The first six events/18 tournaments paid out nearly 12 million in prize money. Not only that, the big names are out and shining. Last night, you could've tuned in to watch Jason Mercier, Sorel Mizzi, and Chris Moneymaker all playing final tables at the same time. Moneymaker had to settle for a fourth place finish, but Mercier and Mizzi both picked up titles.
