A look at all the major stories from this past weekend on PokerStars.
* Secret_M0d3 wins the SCOOP High Roller and a first prize of more than $700K
* Raul Paez leads going into the final of the LAPT in Panama
* Some 27 SCOOP titles won over the weekend
Quite frankly there were a ton of results this weekend, far too many to look at individually. What we can say though is that it was an extraordinary weekend, both in the amount won (top prize was more than $700,000) and in the quality of those winners.
Secret_M0d3 won that top prize, while there were wins for SsicK_OnE, Stephen “stevie444” Chidwick, Team Online’s Matthias “Mati312” Brandner, Shawn “buck21” Buchanan (his second title of SCOOP 2016), Mike “goleafsgo41” Leah and Dan ‘Danny98765’ Smith.
