Daily SCOOP Day 15: Jordan 'JWPRODIGY' Westmorland leads Main Event

After the biggest day in online poker history, PokerStars is about to make more millionaires as the Spring Championship of Online Poker nears its end. But it's not over yet! Read more below...




Day


15



The headlines

As you might have heard, PokerStars was guaranteeing at least $28 million in prize pools yesterday. It did...um...considerably better than that. The one-day prize pool total on Sunday?

Thirty-nine million bucks.

Yep, $39 million in prize pools in one day. It was the biggest day in online poker history.

Those figures were largely driven by the still-running Spring Championship of Online Poker Main Events. The High buy-in Main Event racked up a $6,930,000 prize pool, set aside $1.3 million for first place, and posted nearly a million for the runner-up finisher.

As Day 2 of the Main Events begin today at 14:00 ET, Jordan 'JWPRODIGY' Westmorland leads the high buy-in Main Event. Team PokerStars Pros Elky and Andre Akkari are still in the running in the High Stakes edition, sitting in 46th and 80th places respectively. You'll also find Phil 'MrSweets28' Galfond and Timothy 'Tim0thee' Adams.

Meanwhile, the medium buy-in Main Event has Sweden's ShipitFTW911 at the top of the leader board. Team PokerStars Pro Andre Akkari is in second place, Team PokerStars Pro Liv Boeree is in 121st, and PokerStars Team Online Jaime Staples sits in in 181st place.


You still have a chance to win a PokerStars Start your campaign by opening a PokerStars account.

Also keep an eye on that Phase event that's been running for the past several weeks. Event 1 has $1 million set aside for the winner and $700,000 for second place. The tournament resumes today at 12:30 ET.
