SCOOP 2015: Another day and another familiar face



poker_chips_scoop_19may15_222.jpg


A late, or was it an early finish for the latest tournaments played in this year's Spring Championship of Online Poker. After a slight change to the schedule, which turned event 26 into a two day contest, events 23, 24 and 28 brought the night's action to a close, the latter finishing just a short while ago.

Actually it was this last minute surge of results that proved most notable.

There were first SCOOP wins for Kicionas, zyax, frost3ggg, locomi, as well as a.S.e High, but from those the stand out winner was perhaps Tobi123456, who earned a pretty hefty $353,880 for top spot in Event 23-H.

In contrast the three winners in E28 Stud Hi/Lo ("Hi/Lo low, medium and high" just to add to the word play) were each adding a second SCOOP title to their records. They included calvin7v and puropoker123, but also a name that some might find familiar: Bobrovaflya.

Known in the real world as Marina Zemskova, the Russian made a name for herself last year in MicroMillions, playing in every event and cashing 38 times during the series. Then, building on this early success she stepped up to win her first SCOOP this time last year, earning nearly $60,000 for the win. Well, now you can make that two SCOOP titles.

Read about Zemskova's triumph below where you can find all the days box scores, with links to the full story of each winner's triumph. As always you'll see names that make you stop and say "whoa, that person nearly won again!" That's part of the fun.
