SCOOP 2014: Day 1 explodes with $10 million in prize pools

In most of the northern hemisphere, the irises are blooming, the grass is turning green, and the trees have started their work toward providing shade for the summer. Spring is in the air, and it's apparently gotten poker players ready for some big money action

On Sunday, PokerStars hosted the first day of its two-week Spring Championship of Online Poker. There was already an appetite for it. Before Day 1 had ended, the 2014 SCOOP had amassed nearly $10.5 million in prize pools.

Only one of the three three-tiered events finished up yesterday. The other two go back to work today. Included in Monday's Day 2 action are Stephen "stevie444" Chidwick and Mike "SirWatts" Watson who are both in the top ten of the $1,792,000 Event 01 $2,100 NL Hold'em (6-Max).
