Home / News / Schemion gets his 2022 hat-trick while Mattsson and Ashton make it a double SCOOP

We’ve got more triple and double champs to tell you about after a busy Wednesday in the 2022 Spring Championship of Online Poker (SCOOP). Here’s all the latest.


  • Schemion wizzes to third 2022 title
  • Magnificent Mattsson takes down $10K Super Tuesday
  • Mixed Game masters Ashton and Strebkov win again


Three for Schemion

Schemion makes it three in 2022, seven overall: There has simply been no stopping Ole “wizowizo” Schemion throughout this series. The Austrian-based German crusher had already won two trophies this year, first in the $10K Super Tuesday ($202K) and then the $320 Weekend Starter ($27K). Last night he joined Ami “UhhMee” Barer and “_sennj_” in the triple winners club as Schemion added a $1K Super Tuesday (SCOOP 75-M) title to his incredible 2022 haul, good for $151,575, after outlasting 922 total entries and defeating Latvia’s “Rigapols81” heads up. Schemion has now won seven SCOOP titles throughout his career. Quite simply, he’s one of the best to ever play it. That victory puts Schemion at the top of the High leaderboard with a 190-point lead, and he’s not done yet. He’s also second in chips with 78 remaining in the $530 8-Max (SCOOP 80-H), so there’s a good chance we could be writing about him again tomorrow morning. 

Mattsson: one of online poker’s GOATs

See? C. Darwin2 wins again: Last week we told you how it was only a matter of time before Swedish legend Simon “C. Darwin2” Mattsson won a title in 2022, having picked up two trophies in 2021. He then did so in the $1K 4-Max PKO (SCOOP 62-H) for $41,362, including bounties. Now he’s added a second 2022 win, and this one’s a doozy. Mattsson emerged victorious in the $10K Super Tuesday High Roller (SCOOP 75-H) for $207,901, defeating an 87-entry field made up of the best players in the game. The final table included the likes of Samuel “€urop€an” Vousden, Elio “smokrokflock” Fox, Dominik “Bounatirou” Nitsche and Juan “Malaka$tyle” Pardo, but it was Austria’s Markus “playboy99999” Prinz who finished runner up for $160,667. Mattsson now has seven SCOOP trophies for his mantle.


Denis Strebkov: WCOOP’s leading light

Mixed Game masters Ashton and Strebkov win again: The UK’s Matt “MUSTAFABET” Ashton picked up his second piece of 2022 silverware last night, and his sixth overall. Ashton somehow managed to find a variant he hadn’t won in before–fixed-limit badugi–and took down the 37-entry $1K SCOOP 81-H for $16,027. That means he now has titles in HORSE, limit razz, limit stud H/L, fixed limit hold’em, razz, and FL badugi.

Elsewhere, Russia’s Denis “aDrENalin710” Strebkov–who now plays from Thailand–picked up his fourth-career SCOOP title and first of the year with his victory in the $1K HORSE (SCOOP 79-H). The mixed game wizard–who also holds the record for the most WCOOP titles with nine–beat a 69-entry field to win $15,762 following a heads-up deal with “Gigaloff” ($16,262). Stebkov had previously won two SCOOPs in 2013 (HORSE and FL triple draw 2-7) and another in 2018 (NLO8).

Over in the $109 version of the HORSE, Norway’s “_sennj_” came close to taking down his fourth title of 2022. They ultimately finished sixth for $1,400 on a final table that also included up-and-coming mixed game Twitch streamer Angus “BigGustago” Foster (who plays as “adrf1999”). Foster finished eighth for $800, but it was Estonia’s “Priitk” who won their first SCOOP title and $7,600.

Spraggy’s SCOOP run-bad sadly continued last night. Here’s how you know it’s time to end a stream early:


The UK had a great night last night, winning three titles and hoping to close the gap with Brazil. Unfortunately for them, Brazil also won three new ones, completely cancelling out any progress. Brazil now has 57 and, quite frankly, it’s getting ridiculous. Meanwhile, Thailand picked up their first title…thanks to Russian COOP legend Denis “aDrENalin710” Strebkov, who now calls the land of smiles his home.
