Saturday afternoon Doug ‘WCG|Rider’ Polk captured his first career Spring Championship of Online Poker title by beating one of the tougher No Limit Hold’em fields the festival has to offer. Polk beat out 150 other players to win Event 43, a $2,100 NLHE event for $115,000. And he did it all live on Twitch. Polk streamed the final table live on Twitch right through until the final hand.

Polk also made the final eight of the $21,000 buy-in Heads Up High Roller event which plays out on Sunday afternoon.

David ‘EzPaTuLa’ Cabrera beat out Ivan ‘Negriin’ Luca to win the $215 buy-in mid-stakes version of the event. Carbrera walked away with $57,366.13 for the win. The low-stakes version went to Noah ‘dirty.brasil’ Vaillancourt. The Vancouver based grinder conquered 2,876 other players including Yuri ‘theNERDguy’ Martins heads up to win the title.

After Brazil failed to win a SCOOP title on Friday, the South American poker powerhouse made sure to get one on Saturday. Ricardo ‘preTu.ras’ Silva took down Event 50 (L), a $27 NL Hold’em, Six Max, Progressive Super KO tournament. Silva’s win is the 19th win by a Brazilian player this SCOOP. Silva outlasted 7,438 other players to win the title and the $$13,732.61 first place prize money. He also collected an additional $2,821.27 in bounties. Silva won a Turbo Championship of Online Poker last year and now just needs a World Championship of Online Poker title to join the COOP Triple Crown club.

The mid-stakes version of that event went to another player with previous SCOOP success ‘ex6tenceLV’ beat out over 2,300 players to win the second SCOOP title of his career and almost $50,000 in prize money. Hannes ‘SuchADegen’ Speiser won Event 50 (H), a $2,100 buy-in tournament, to win $107,730 plus an extra $41,645.97 in bounties.

Also worth noting that Shaun Deeb earned enough points on Saturday to move past Jason Mercier for top spot on the Overall SCOOP leaderboard. With just two days of play left Deeb has 780 points while Mercier trails with 755.
