Daily SCOOP Day 8: How to fit 28 results into a headline?

A quite ridiculous number of results, more events starting, more to conclude, and more changes on the overall Leaderboard. It can only be Day 8 of SCOOP 2017.

Day

8



The headlines at the start of the second week

I can highly recommend trawling through the results from the weekend and reading each of the reports featured on the PokerStars Blog. Just allow yourself plenty of time to get through them. A total of 28 events concluded, and as you might imagine, the box scores feature countless familiar names, not to mention stories.

You can click through the links in the box scores below for more detailed (and entertaining) report of those finals. But listed below are a few highlights.

There were wins for the likes of Justin "ZeeJustin" Bonomo in SCOOP 25-H and Sam "SamSquid" Grafton in SCOOP 27-H.

Andrey "Gigaloff" Zhigalov won SCOOP 22-H within hours of finishing second in SCOOP 21-H.

Veteran pro Richard "CHUFTY" Ashby reached three final tables, finishing fifth twice, and fourth.

Adam "Adamyid" Owen moved up to eighth on the leader board with a fifth and sixth place finish.

James "'Andy McLEOD" Obst narrowly missed out on his fifth SCOOP title, finishing second in SCOOP 20-H, and fifth in SCOOP 18-M.

Team Pros Jason Mercier and Jason Somerville went deep, recording sixth and tenth place finishes respectively. Then there was Adrienne "Talonchick" Rowsome who scored and tenth and a 19th place.

Current leader board standings

With so many results over the weekend it was inevitable that there would be some changes at the top. MITS 304 returns to the top however, with a 35 point lead over second placed Naza114. Viktor "Isildur1" Blom is not far behind in third place, while Calvin "cal42688" Anderson is the other player with more than 400 points, in fourth place.
