SCOOP 2013: Day 1 explodes with $7.5 million in prize money

Normally on this day of the week, we hit you with as many weekend majors results as we have. Fear not, we have all of the 5-12-13 final table results right here. But, you will note, there is no Sunday Million. There is no Sunday-Warm-Up. Why? Well, the Spring Championship of Online Poker is on, and it's looking to be gigantic.

Note: PokerStars guaranteed $40 million in prize money over the 16-day festival. Sunday began with two of the 44 events--six total tournaments. In all, players are fighting for $7.5 million in prize money.

Yes, after one day

With the guarantees laying in ruins, we're left to look at today's re-starts, which will include Nick "GripDsNutz" Grippo, and SCOOP 2012 Event 33 (L) winner Ami "UhhMee" Barer in the high stakes contests. We'll also be keeping our eye on Team Pro Leo Margets who made Day 2 of SCOOP-02-M.
