1. Who is the deadliest of them all?

Have you ever wondered who is the most lethal player in online poker?

Which players are particularly good at dispatching the opposition?

And exactly how good?

We plan to find out by keeping score of all SCOOP eliminations.

Golden Scythe Dispatch HQ: Find out who has the most KOs, as well as how many you have so far in SCOOP 2018

Each day we'll post the latest standings showing which players are the most dangerous in the business.

It may offer some consolation to anyone beaten by someone who turns out to be the most dangerous player in the tournament.

Which must be better than finding you've been eliminated by some new guy claiming his first scalp.

Actually, we'll be keeping track of that too.

It's a new way to compare your own performance against others. Whether that's SCOOP winners, Team Pros, or just your friends.

Check back each day to see which position you occupy.

And if you top one of our leader boards, you'll win what is the newest, most original, and possibly the most ridiculous title in poker right now:

2. The headlines

Three names headline the day's SCOOP results: wizowizo, Andre_Hansen and RuiNF.

You can put those in any order you like.

The most obvious is the first one. Ole "wizowizo" Schemion won SCOOP 32-H, a little more than a week after finishing eighth in the EPT Monte Carlo Main Event, and fourth in the Super High Roller.

As Pauly McGuire wrote for the blog, "Once Ole Schemion secured the chip lead at the $10K PLO High Roller final table, no one else had a fighting chance."

It proved the case, with a win for Schemion worth $283,260. Read the full story here.

Then there was Andre-Hansen of Ukraine, who took down SCOOP 31-H for $229,784, also known as the Sunday Million Special Edition. Jason Kirk had the full report, which you can read here.

Finally, RuiNF finally got his second SCOOP 2018 title following his win in SCOOP 17-H last week. This one came in SCOOP 30-H.

The Dutchman won $196,407 this time around, up against some of the toughest opponents in the game. Al Rash had the full story, which you can read here.

Elsewhere there were other significant wins, including a second for Tr!pleeeee in SCOOP 28-M. Calvin7v got on this year's winners list in SCOOP 28-L.
