Daily SCOOP Day 4: Can saying it's true make it true?
A little quieter on the SCOOP front with just two events concluding today (and by that we mean six when you count the three buy-in levels). Then there was the leader board to think about, and events coming up today...
The headlines from the fourth day
As Dan Jones writes for the Blog, if you say things enough times sometimes come true ("Aces, aces, aces, aces.... Pleeeeeease aces, aces"). Whether or not SCOOP 11-H winner sadface11 was thinking this way as he added a title to his palmarès is unclear. But that's what he did, as you can read about here.
Meanwhile in SCOOP 12-H it was third time lucky for anti-durrr, who has started this year's SCOOP in good form, and moving into fourth place on the Overall leaderbord. You can read about his success here.
