Round up of latest results
Buchanan took his fourth title in SCOOP 14-H, an Omaha H/L contest with 158 players. Buchanan secured the win after a one handed heads-up scrap against Us_Alex of Russia. Top prize was worth more than $82,000 to Buchanan. Will O'Connor was on hand with the report on the final table, which you can read here.
The biggest win of the day was easily that of Otitov who won SCOOP 10-H, also known as the Super Tuesday Special Edition. With a field of more than 1,500 first prize was worth more than $235,000 to the Russia, after a two way deal with second placed Sinoire of Slovenia who took $214,571. Read Pauly McGuire's report on the event here.
Lastly, Beeethoven87's win in SCOOP 14-M was not the richest, but it was arguably one of the most convincing. As Alex Villegas reported, Beeethoven87 conducted a white wash of his opponents, eliminating every player on his way to the $27,000 first prize, each elimination worthy of an encore.
