$267,583.62 to first place
2018 SCOOP Event #58-L $109 NL Main Event Championship attracted 18,511 original runners and 7,850 re-entries for a grand total of 26,361 entries. The $2.6 million prize pool smashed the $1.5 million guarantee. The top 4,211 places paid out with the final three players locking up six-figure cashes. First place in the “Low” Main Event paid out $267,583. Quite an impressive ROI for three days of work.
Day 1 ended with 16 players remaining. Russia’s AcckiySotona (winner of SCOOP event #52-L Stud) bagged up the lead with a stack worth 170M. Brazil had four players still left in the hunt, more than any other country.
It was a bad day to be one of the four Brazilians still alive at the start Day 2. The first three bustouts were under the green and gold banner. With 15 remaining, allin0709 was in the middle of the pack and hoping to fade the curse, hex, or whatever voodoo magic was going down.
With a baker’s dozen to go, AcckiySotona passed 300M in chips at a moment when no one from the chase pack was close to 200M and more than half of the remaining field had fewer than 100M. With 10 to go, the pack caught up to AcckiySotona, who ducked under 300M. Russia’s SashDLA bubbled off the final table in tenth place.

BIG SLICK FLIPS FOURS
Big slick versus small pair. AcckiySotona bombed it all-in with 4♣4♥ and Cashcid Linc accepted the challenge, opting to race with A♥K♣. The fours lost the flip when the K♥ appeared on the flop.

The Brazilian earned $71,510.01 for fifth place.
EXIT STAGE LEFT FOR AETOS2DRAMA

Karma swung back the other way when aetos2drama lost a 384M pot with A♣10♦ versus marjanko89’s A♠6♦. marjanko89 flopped two pair and left aetos2drama with next to nothing. aetos2drama busted on the next hand when K♦5♠ were outflopped by Cashcid Linc’s 4♥3♣. aetos2drama missed a Wheel gutshot draw and busted in fourth place. The Greek player earned nearly $100K for the deep run.

DROPPING A DEUCE ON THE RIVER

Kabotajoe led most of the way and even turned a flush draw, but the 2♠ spiked on the river and marjanko89 won the pot with a pair of deuces. Kabotajoe whiffed on a flush draw and bounced in third place, which paid out $138,323.54.
