The remarkable success of SCOOP

The 2016 Spring Championship of Online Poker is now well underway, and it's safe to say that the online poker community officially has SCOOP fever.

And who can blame them? Due to the series' accessibility to players with every sized bankroll, it's no surprise that SCOOP is an annual highlight on every poker player's calendar.

The growing success of SCOOP also might have a little something to do with the massive amount of cash up for grabs. Over the previous seven years, SCOOP awarded over $440 million to over 460,000 entrants. That's a whole lot of all-ins.
