Before we get to the main feature of the day a hat tip to the latest two-time SCOOP 2018 winner hummylun, who took down SCOOP 35-L last night. That complements his win in SCOOP 27-H a few days ago, which you can read about here.
Reverdy365 was the big winner of the day in SCOOP 34-H, a 6-Max Bounty event. As Martin Harris reported, first place was worth $90,640 but added to that was $64,676 in bounties. You can read that report here.

If you’re familiar with his videos you’ll know that Jaime Staples has had quite the year, winning a remarkable weight loss prop bet with his brother Matt (who had the reverse job of putting on weight). They succeeded by using discipline and determination (and that financial incentive) but also with the help of a personal trainer Matt Vacanti.
We spoke to Matt about the challenge he faced helping the Staples brothers with the bet. It’s a fascinating account of what many people thought impossible, but which has inspired countless others to try their own weight loss programme.
It’s well worth reading, even if you already have abs and less than ten per cent body fat. You can do that by clicking here.
