SCOOP 2015: calvin7v scores his second SCOOP title in Event #28-M ($215 Stud Hi/Lo)

As this final table kicked off, there was a good chance someone would come away from it with a second COOP title. Less than a week ago, Kashmir_uzi won his first SCOOP watch in Event #14-H ($2,100 NL Single Draw 2-7). Calvin7v won his first SCOOP in 2014 in Event #14-M ($215 PLO Heads-Up) and gettingpwned took down a TCOOP this January in Event #33 ($82 Razz). While dolmren and gettingpwned were in a dead heat for the chip lead as the final table began, calvin7v quickly made his mark, ascending to over 1 million in chips by the time play turned four-handed. Dolmren was eliminated in fourth place and from there calvin7v ran the table, capturing his second SCOOP title and over $14k.

380 split-pot aficionados bought in to Event #28-M, driving the prize pool up to $76,000.00. 48 places were paid with first place set to earn $14,630.00.

The betting limits were up to 8,000/16,000 on the final table bubble and vovtroy was the short stack with 28,764. 03042921 had the bring-in with the 6♥, vovtroy completed to 8,000 with the A♠, and they continued raising until 03042921 capped the betting at 32,000 and vovtroy called all-in.
