SCOOP 2013: Hansen, Chidwick, Luske headline Wednesday action

Thor Hansen. The mere name conjures the image the old-time rounder's smile. Hansen is one of the guys who was around long before online poker. He's also one of the older players who has made the successful transition to the online game.

Need proof? Well, Hansen won his first SCOOP title last night.

Hansen took on a star-studded field in the $2,100 Stud event and won the $42,900 first prize.

While Hansen might have been the best-known of last night's winners, he was in good company. As day turned to night on Wednesday, young gun Stevie Chidwick finished runner-up in SCOOP-11-M, and the red hot Team Pro Marcel Luske made the final table in the PL 5-Card Omaha Hi-Lo tourney.

Here's a full rundown of how Wednesday finished up. You can click on the headlines for our final table wrap-ups.
