1. The headlines
First the featured event of the day was SCOOP 11-H, the Special Edition Super Tuesday with a guaranteed $1 million in the prize pool.
Al Rash had the write up for this one, won by CEm1994 of the Netherlands for more than $183,000.
In other news, we got the first double winner of SCOOP 2018.
RomeOpro from Ukraine won SCOOP16-H, the $5,200 Turbo High Roller, just days after winning SCOOP 2-H. Those two titles combine for prize money of nearly $260,000.
They're among the overnight winners. A day before that Niall "Firaldo87" Farrell was doing the same, winning SCOOP 3-H.
Farrell spoke to the blog yesterday about the win, and his plans for what's next. Read the interview with Farrell here.
