SCOOP 2013: Daniel Kelly, the 6-COOP man

A few years ago, photographer Neil Stoddart and PokerStars' tourney guru Bryan Slick hustled Dan Kelly into what amounted to a large closet at the PCA in the Bahamas. They shoved two bracelets onto his wrists and took the picture below.

Why? Well, it was a big deal. Kelly had won not one but two WCOOP bracelets.

Say it aloud: it was a BIG DEAL!

Now, it's sort of quaint.

See, last night, as Dave Behr wrote, Kelly won his second SCOOP title. Add that to his four WCOOP wins, and you have a 6-COOP man, which qualifies him as...I dunno...a demigod of some sort.
