SCOOP: Andras Nemeth Beats Roman Romanovsky to Win $25K High Roller

0
Andras Nemeth took down the $25,000 High Roller event, denying Romeo Romanovsky a third SCOOP title in 2018.

The top-ranked player in Hungary, Andras ‘probirs’ Nemeth, won over $500,000 on Day 5 of the PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker and in the process prevented Roman ‘RomeOpro’ Romanovsky from collecting an astounding third title of the series.

With the bumper buy-in Low, Medium and High Event #14 tournaments all coming to a conclusion on Thursday, the results saw 12 players collect six-figure scores, including Romanovsky who made it to heads-up play on his third bullet in the $25,000 buy-in ‘High’ and was looking to achieve his third win of the series after taking down Event #16 (High) the day before and Event #2 (High) on Monday. But, Nemeth was the man in his way and ultimately prevented the Ukrainian from achieving the feat to claim his own third career SCOOP title and the first-place prize of $576,087. Romanovsky received $442,299 as runner-up which left the current #12-ranked player in the world less than $200,000 away from the $10M career earnings accolade.

Guntis ‘poker@luffyD’ Aleskins picked up his largest recorded online result to date after banking $240,765 for victory in Event #14 (Medium). Former Sunday Million runner-up Aleskins defeated ‘engantil‘ heads-up for the win, with the latter taking away $171,625 for second place. Also on the final table was ‘Lena900’ who collected $87,208 in fourth-place and helped ‘Team Sweden‘ close the gap on ‘Team BITBRYE‘ in their much talked about six-figure series prop bet.

The UK’s Ben ‘jenbizzle’ Jones overcome Brazil’s Ivanildo Limeira in Event #14 (Low) to pick up his first SCOOP title, and a career-best recorded online cash of $162,039. Jones, who is a former Super Tuesday, Sunday Warm-Up and Sunday Supersonic champion, came through the 5,700 entrants field and navigated his way to victory on a final table that also featured 2017 WCOOP Main event third-place finisher, Machadada RS, and Chester20o.

Event #15 saw three six-max PLO rebuy tournaments take place with ‘Maizeruba‘, ‘igor69‘ and ‘Tr!pleeeee all adding SCOOP titles to their names. ‘Maizeruba‘ won $9,872 after coming through a 3,891 player field in the ‘Low’ and ‘igor69‘ was the victor in the ‘Medium’ for $32,858, after seeing off former Pocketfives world no.#1 ‘cal42688‘ into third place. In the ‘High’ ‘Tr!pleeeee‘ took away a cool $87,042 after beating Mike ‘goleafsgoeh’ LeahJerry ‘Perrymejsen’ Ödeen and Adam ‘adamyid’ Owen on the final table.

Christopher ‘Apotheosis92’ Kruk, who featured on the Event #16 (Medium) final table on Day 4, made another SCOOP appearance on Day 5 after collecting the silver medal in Event #13 (High) Triple Draw 2-7 for $38,850. The Canadian was beaten to the top prize of $57,720 by ‘merla888’ after they successfully came through the 111 player field.

TheRabbitFR‘ made up for their runner-up spot in Event #10 (Medium) by going all the way in Event 13 (Medium) to win $15,480. ‘TheRabbitFR‘ beat ‘SexualDrag0n‘ in heads-up play, on a final table that saw Pocketfives members ‘komarolo22′ and ‘hummylun‘ achieve fourth and fifth place respectively.

In Event #13 (Low), ‘hapsmoney’ beat out 1,726 other entrants to earn the victory and $5,441. ‘Flakon2010‘ was rewarded with $4,058.45 for second place with ‘Moergi‘ picking up $3,022.45 in third place.
