Daily SCOOP Day 11: Back in action

May 18, 2017

After a day of cancellations SCOOP came back to life with three more events concluding. But things remained constant at the top of the leader board…



The headlines

That’s enough sitting in front of your computer screen doing nothing. Time to sit in front of your computer screen and play more SCOOP. After a regrettable hiatus (read about that here) there are more results to report from the business end of the Championship, with three events concluding.


In SCOOP 36-H Jonas “donut604” Mackoff beat the likes of Frederik “Fred_Brink” Jensen and Bernardo “bedias ” Dias to the title. If SCOOP titles are judged on the quality of the final table opposition then his comes with oakleaf clusters, with Ryan “PROTENTIALmn” LaPlante and Ari “BodogAri” Engel finishing fifth and eight.

In SCOOP 37-H it was caaaaamel (that’s five As) who pulled off a comeback to win a first prize of 216875 after a four way deal. Meanwhile in SCOOP 38-H lulDocuments denied Calvin “Cal42688” Anderson his 512th COOP title*, with Anderson finishing third behind not only caaaaamel (still five As), but Viktor “Isildur1” Blom in third.
