Nick Yunis headlines the day on SCOOP ahead of big weekend

May 13, 2016

We’re the sixth of 15 days of SCOOP 2016. Here’s the latest update with 42 of 165 tournaments (from 55 three-tiered events) now completed.


Today’s highlights:

* Nick “chilenocl” Yunis wins his second COOP
* 33 tournaments to be played out over the weekend



Round up of latest results


Nick Yunis’s name was already on the list of players least likely to cause surprise at winning another COOP title. I suppose now we underline it. He earned his second in the 6-Max shootout, SCOOP 12-H, which was worth $95,040 to the Chilean and adds to his already glittering record of achievement. You can read Al Rash’s report on Yunis’s victory here.
