The Daily SCOOP (5-12-11): Showoffs and showdowns

SCOOP logo.gifYou gotta hand it to our writer Kristin Bihr. She was on the schedule last night to write one wrap-up. She ended up watching three final tables. Why? Well, she found a couple of SCOOP showoffs. As she reported last night in "Two final tables, one victory as Hood_Ace takes down Event #10-M ($320 Stud)," not one, but two players managed to make two final tables last night during the PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker. UhhMee final tabled Event #9-High for $28,000 and made the final of the $320 Stud event. Not to be outdone, Hood_Ace won Event #10-Medium ($320 Stud), and notched a third place finish in Event #10-High ($3,150 Stud).

Forget multi-tabling. How about multi-final-tabling
