Home / News / SCOOP 2019: All the news from Day 9

All the huge events that started on Sunday in the Spring Championship of Online Poker (SCOOP) ended on Monday. There’s a lot of rounding up to be done, so let’s crack on:

  • Guilherme “guilherme12” Decourt wins two titles in single day
  • Brazil pulls off clean sweep in NL Omaha H/L events
  • Four players claim $200K+ scores
  • Chop, chop, chop, chop, chop
  • $1.36 million in first prizes awarded
  • Russia’s “2b3ftw” turns 55 cents into thousands of dollars
  • Brazil streaks clear at top of leader board


Three players now have two titles in this year’s SCOOP, but Guilherme “guilherme12” Decourt did something very rare: he won two titles in a single day. After picking up $21,102 for beating a field of 1,359 in SCOOP 33-M, he then beat another 317 in SCOOP 37-H. Both were Omaha Hi/Lo events, both were nothing but highs for Decourt.

In addition to Decort’s title in the high buy-in version of SCOOP 37, his compatriots “David_BeckhamX” and “KiteCeara” won the low and medium versions, completing the first country clean-sweep of a single event this year for Brazil.

Joris “BillLewinsky” Ruijs further underlined his supreme talent in online tournaments with victory in SCOOP 32-M $1.25 million guaranteed $530 NLHE event. He beat the UK’s “Zurgok” into second, overcoming what was about a four-to-one heads up chip deficit at one point. They briefly thought about a deal, but rejected it. Russia’s “Premove”, already a SCOOP champion, was third.

With enormous prize pools on offer over the weekend, many of the top tournaments were chopped at the business end, including:

There was a three-way Latin American carve up of the Sunday Warm-Up, otherwise known as SCOOP 31-M, with $215 buy-in. Two Argentinians — Matias “Festivuss” Gabrenja and Damian “pampa27” Salas — agreed an equal chop with Brazil’s Daniel “Garrafalitro” Camacho, with Gabrenja eventually winning the mandatory $10,000 left on the side, and the title. Camacho is an online poker coach, while Salas is a former WSOP seventh-placed finisher, with another $4 million in online cashes. It’s no wonder the likes of Kristen “krissyb24” Bicknell couldn’t break into the top three. She finished fifth.

Pablo “Pabritz” Brito added another $218,631.85 to his bankroll with victory after a chop in SCOOP 31-H, the $2,100 buy-in $1 million guaranteed event. Four out of the top six players were Brazilian, with Romania’s Vlad “dariepoker” Darie narrowly missing out on a second career SCOOP title. He finished second.

The biggest deal discussion of the night came in the $5,200 buy-in SCOOP 32 where Russia’s “josef_shvejk“, Rui “RuiNF” Ferreira and “EzPaTuLa” had to find a way to divide up about $620,000 between the three of them. Including the extra they had to leave on the side, “josef_shvejk” took $224,958.52 and the win, with second-place “Rui_NF” taking $194,245.46 and “EzPaTuLa” officially finishing third, but winning $202,648.61.

Greek players landed a double in SCOOP 34, with “badvillager” taking the low buy-in event and “CaptainRobur” winning the medium, for more than $70K. Not only that, “CaptainRobur” beat Ole “wizowizo” Schemion heads up for the win.

WATnlos” has previously won the Sunday Million and the Sunday Warm-Up and last night the Austrian player also won the SCOOP 34-H $1,050 6-Max for close to $150,000. It was another close call for Ole “wizowizo” Schemion, who finished eighth.
