SCOOP: Ghost of Nashville wins, BodogBanshee claims Event #8 (low buy-in)
20,353 players entered, and only one survived.
The massiveness of SCOOP Event #8's $33 NLHE caused a spill over to second day for this event. 4,500 players walked away with some money for their troubles. But, it was the final nine that took home the lion's share of the $610,590.00 prize pool that crushed the $250,000 guarantee by PokerStars.
On the first day (write-up found here) we saw four Team PokerStars pros wade through the massive field for a payday (Those who finished in the money included Vanessa Rousso in 3727th place, Peter Eastgate in 3023rd, Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier in 1312th, and Marcin "Goral" Horecki in 974th place).
To end the day scarface0928 and celofyz33 would rule the day with 18 million chip stacks going into day 2.
dunkmaster50 started the day fourth in chips but he would be slammed in tenth place as the final table bubble boy but would grab $2,137.07 on his $33 investment.
The tournament would belong to BodogBanshee however as he would take the SCOOP Championship watch along with the $54,953.11 earned as the tonight's Event #8 NLHE low buy-in champion!
