Just like that, the end is now in sight in the 2019 Spring Championship of Online Poker (SCOOP). This time next week, it’ll all be done. But let’s focus on the now, huh? Here’s today’s latest round-up:

TODAY’S HEADLINES

  • Prize-pools total passes $50 million
  • More than 600,000 entries through 129 tournaments
  • Online poker’s enigmatic superstar “bencb789” wins title
  • Leader board leader “krakukra” speaks!
  • Three EPT champions head 8-Game
  • Sick end to a great day for Spraggy

BEHIND THE HEADLINES

Tournament legend “bencb789” won SCOOP 69-H, denying “merla888” a second SCOOP title of the year and also keeping young upstart Ben “Spraggy” Spragg at arm’s length in 10th. No one in online poker retains the respect of “bencb789” — he was the leader of the crews that produced players such as Fedor “CrownUpGuy” Holz, among others. Though his identity and full extent of his results remains concealed, he is one of the best players in the world. And now he has another SCOOP title.

“NorBaggio” of Hungary won the 12,136-runner SCOOP 69-L, taking $118,933. At the same time, he was down to the last five tables in the 1,542-runner SCOOP 38-M 4-Max. He finished 15th in that one, representing two deep runs in massive-field events. It was Hungary’s first title in this year’s SCOOP.

Former Sunday Million champion “hello_totti” won six figures in the 4-Max High event, holding off the challenges of a heap of well-known stars. “SinKarma” was second, Timofey “Truteller” Kuznetsov was fourth, former Team Online Naoya “nkeyno” Kihara was fifth and recent world No 1 “RomeOpro” was seventh.
