Daily SCOOP: An unusually quiet start for Day 1
SCOOP 2017 is underway, it's just you'd have a hard time noticing it from what follows. While opening day featured five events to kick things off we still await the first result...
The headlines from opening day
Hello, yes, welcome. Headlines... headlines. Well, we don't have any. We should be honest at this point -- all that talk bigging-up the Spring Championship of Online Poker was accurate and well intentioned, it's just we don't have any winners yet. Seriously, I looked everywhere. That includes the Sunday Million, which is wrapped into the SCOOP opening day festivities, none of which we'll know the results of until later today.
Box scores from Day 1
Well, like I said, there's not much to report on this front, but this is where results will appear in each day's SCOOP round up - full box scores from every event.
You can qualify for the SCOOP on PokerStars for as little as a few cents. What's stopping you? Start your campaign by opening a PokerStars account.
