Mason Pye makes two final tables on Day 6

Pye makes two final tables: Mason “Pye_Face21” Pye hit two final tables last night, making decent scores in both the medium and high stakes Stud events. Pye came fourth in the 24-M for $2,549, and second place in the 24-H for $11,925. Yes, he was close to earning his second ever SCOOP title (his first came in a 2021 Stud event). Pye was denied by Tobias “Senkel92” Leknes of Norway, who earned $18,550 for first and locked up the fourth SCOOP title of his career.

Huge payouts in Thursday Thrill: Event 23, the SCOOP Thursday Thrill special editions, concluded on Day 6, paying out the biggest prizes of the night. In the 23-H, JustTrappedU came second for a total of $84,910, and POKERPRO2.0 of Austria claimed first place for a whopping $113,399. POKERPRO2.0’s results are well hidden online, but we do know two things. They’ve cashed in a lot of tournaments. And this is their first SCOOP title. In the medium version, “ycsousa” of Canada locked up first place for $86,049.

Premove takes the chop: It was only Friday, Day 5 of SCOOP, that we reported on Andrei “Premove” Skortsov’s first place finish in the 19-M. That was Skortov’s fifth SCOOP title. On Day 6, Premove came close to a sixth, only narrowly missing out on the top spot in the 30-H: 5-Card PLO event. The top three players opted for a deal, with Skortov finishing second for $20,783. “leBresil” won the heads-up and bagged $22,292 for first.


elmerixx denies five time champion Joao Vieira: He’s one of the greatest online players of all time and a five time SCOOP champion. Joao “Naza114” Vieira was looking for a sixth last night when he found himself heads-up with Tomi “elmerixx” Brouk, also a formidable pro. Vieira had to settle for second place and $45,822. Brouk clinched first place and the sum of $59,192. Despite having earned over $11.4 million in online cashes, this was the Finnish player’s first ever SCOOP title.

Ami Barer denied five time champ Joao Vieira

Amichai Barer takes second of series: Amichai “UhhMee” Barer nearly earned himself an early trophy with a second place finish in the 03: $1,050 Sunday Warm-Up. A couple of days later he got his title, taking down the $109 6+ Hold ’em event. On Day 6, Barer did it again, winning the 32-H: $1,050 PKO Hyper. The event was done and dusted in less than three hours, by which point Barer had picked up bounties to the tune of nearly $34k, making for a first place finish worth $57,160. The victory makes Barer the first player to win two titles in SCOOP 2022. That makes four SCOOP titles in total for the Canadian player.
