Daily SCOOP Day 17: Main Event finals shock and awe
And just like--with the exception of the mulligans finishing up--that SCOOP 2017 comes to an end for another year. It signed off in style though, as the results below prove. Read on for the conclusion of this year's Championship Main Events.
Quite simply they all belong to Charlie "Epiphany77" Carrel, with a few left over for the winners of Medium and Low Main Events that concluded yesterday.
Carrel has been described as one of the "rising stars" of the game for so long that we're starting to sounds ridiculous. It's just that there's no evidence to suggest his ascendency is set to stall any time soon.
We've written about him for so long, including this after his first big live result in Malta, that it's easy to forget the scale of his achievement, which started with flashes of potential on the EPT, and which has now transformed this poker wonder boy into a high-rolling, big winning, technicoloured, SCOOP champ.
He took honours in SCOOP 55-H yesterday, earning a first prize of more than $1.2 million, and really it's hard to be surprised.
Read on for the full report of Carrel's victory, and also of those detailing wins for RPFLshove in the Medium event, worth $787,000, and madalain in the Low, worth $221,000.

Final leader board standings
All that's left to do is wrap up the leader board standings, which we can't do until the mulligans wrap up today. Principal among them is the Overall, where Naza114 from the Netherlands still leads. Naza114 has been among the leaders almost from the start with four final table appearances, including a win in Event SCOOP 30-M.
All of which amounts to 815 points, some 30 points ahead of second placed Viktor "Isildur1" Blom, who in turn is 45 points ahead of Bernardo "bedias" Dias in third place. It appears to be ending in the usual fashion, with ten of the best names in online poker finishing at the top.
Meanwhile in the other categories, joaoMathias remains atop the High Leaderboard, 30 points ahead of second placed Antonio7.
Naza114 shares the honours in the Medium category with Yuri "theNERDguy" Martins. Both players sit with with 395 points, some way ahead of Russian player krakura in third place.
Finally, the Low Leaderboard shows Henkijnho91 of Sweden at the top, 30 points ahead of Naoya "nkeyno" Kihara.
You can find the nearly-final SCOOP leader board standings on the SCOOP homepage, as well as results and statistics from this year's Championship.
