Many observers consider Ben ‘Sauce123’ Sulsky to be one of the best poker players in the world and on Sunday he provided more evidence to this after topping the PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker $25,000 Heads-up No Limit Hold’em event. Sulsky’s win was one of 15 SCOOP events that wrapped up on Sunday.

Sulsky beat ‘alimounda‘ in the Event #26 (High) final after dispatching ‘donthnrmepls‘ in the semi-final to win $180,000. Finishing second was worth $100,000. Ben ‘ben86’ Tollerene lost in the semi-final to ‘donthnrmepls’. Each semi-final loser won $60,000. The Medium version of the event was won by’mandza17′ for $88,800 while Luke ‘LFMagic’ Fields took home $28,491.87 for winning the Low version.

Sulsky wasn’t the only high-profile winner on Sunday though.Justin Bonomo won Event #25 High ($2,100 Eight Game) for $95,680 and the second SCOOP title of his career. Bonomo overcame a stacked final table that included ‘iteopepe88‘, Benjamin ‘lulDocuments‘ Lukas and RaúlGonzalez. Brazilian ‘fred_volpe‘ won the Medium version for $25,210.90 and ‘phinster‘ topped the Low event for $11,281.02.

Possibly the toughest final table of the day though came in a game not spread very often – No Limit Omaha Eight or Better. Sam ‘SamSquid’ Grafton won the event for $51,285 after outlasting Bernardo ‘Bedias’ Dias, former #1-ranked Joao ‘joaoMathias’ Mathias Baumgarten, mixed game specialist Richard ‘CHUFTY’ Ashby and Brian ‘Brianm15’ England. The Medium version was chopped heads-up by ‘Krakukra’ and ‘Jp_3391’ for $18,405.36 and $16,097.76 respectively with ‘Krakurkra’ earning the title. The Low version was won by ‘SomovRulit’ for $6,873.19. Ukrainian ‘gunnersfun‘ made both the final table of the Medium and Low version of the event, finishing third and second respectively.
