SCOOP 2016: miomiomy79 is the mixed champion in Event #30-L ($27 PL Mixed Omaha, 6-Max, Turbo, Zoom)

Event #30-L was a lightning-quick event that went from 2,622 players to a champion in just about five hours. 

The 6-Max, Turbo, Zoom format helped miomiomy79 put the tournament away quickly, but our champion was also partly responsible for the tournament's expediency. miomiomy79 eliminated two players on the final table bubble and brought the tournament from three players to just one in a few hands.

Aside from the fancy SCOOP watch, miomiomy79's victory came with a $7,858.73 payday. Not bad for a few hours' work and a stunted final table.

The final table bubble went on for more than 10 minutes. It was basically an eternity considering the pace and format of the tournament. But after a few double ups, the bubble burst with maximum force.

In the last multi-table hand of the event, zog85 moved all-in for 804,345 and miomiomy79 called. rodmarcos reshoved for 2.1 million and miomiomy79 called again.

miomiomy79: T♦9♥6♥5♦
rodmarcos: A♣K♦T♣3♦
zog85: K♣Q♥J♦3♣

The 9♦7♣J♣8♥A♠ board gave miomiomy79 a jack-high straight and two eliminations. 

zog85 fell in 7th while rodmarcos was eliminated in 6th.
