SCOOP 2016: The overnight winners (and more winners)
If there's a problem with SCOOP, aside from we've yet to win one, it's the tendency we railbirds have of missing out on some of the results, given that there are so many of them. With 55 events, and three tiers for each, the overnights results come through in not a trickle, but a flood - 12 alone yesterday.
That's why we created the SCOOP results page, which has all the details you'll need, including links to each of the final table reports, although reading just the 12 from yesterday will set you back considerable time.
So allow us to provide a short recap of the most recent results.
There was a first South African winner in SCOOP 26-L. SONGJOY took the honours and a first prize of $11,864. In the High version of that event, won by ekziter, Stephen Chidwick came close to a second bracelet within as many days, finishing in fifth place.
SONGJOY was in full voice in SCOOP 27-M, narrowly missing out on a South African SCOOP binge, when he came second. This result, behind eventual winner Supa4real, eclipsed his winning prize money, this one worth $92,246.

Much like the abundance of results, there are plenty of names listed here to talk about. SixthSenSe19 and Shaundeeb are putting space between them and third place Andy McLEOD. Vovtroy is not far behind, and as if to prove that poker were a skill game, the list of names beneath them speaks for the quality of the competition.
Find all the SCOOP standings, for each tier of competition and combined, on the SCOOP leader board page.
Until tomorrow, when we'll no doubt have more of the same.
