A number of players hold a special place in the history of the PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker. Former #1-ranked Calvin Anderson is the only player with 10 career SCOOP titles and on Saturday, Shawn Buchanan is his closest threat with six and more than a handful of players have won five each. On Saturday, Benny Glaser added his name to that list thanks to his win in Event #6 High ($2,100 8-Game).

Glaser topped the 122-entry field to win $54,854 and an 8-Game SCOOP title for the second time in two years after winning Event #41 High ($1,050 8-Game) in 2019. Runner-up ‘donthnrmepls‘ picked up $42,070 while ‘at0216‘ earned $32,266 as the third place finisher.

UK-based grinder ‘com 157‘ had the single biggest score of the day, winning $128,391 for taking down Event #5 High ($1,050 No Limit Hold’em). Runner-up Dimitar ‘KuuL’ Danchev narrowly missed out on a six-figure runner-up consolation prize, taking home $94,888 for finishing second. Third place finisher Max ‘mikki696’ Lehmanski had to settle for $70,128.

Two-time Sunday Million winner ‘Lucky_Jew_17’ pulled off a rare feat in Event #7 High ($530 NLHE PKO), winning more in bounties than first place paid. Finishing on top of the 1,893-entry field came with a $60,864 score and they collected another $63,768 in bounties. Diego ‘Die Ventura’ Ventura wasn’t as fortunate, earning $60,863 from the prize pool and another $14,376 in bounties. ‘Ervedosa’ won $36,111 and $11,142 in bounties for coming in third.

Alexander ‘joiso’ Kostritsyn took down Event #11 High ($1,050 No Limit 5-Card Draw PKO) for $9,198 and $14,468 in bounties. Runner-up ‘Parasol6Ka‘ scored $9,198 and just $250 in bounties while Denis ‘aDrENalin710’ Strebkov won $5,882 and $4,094 in bounties for finishing on the final spot of the podium.

The final High event on Saturday had 736 runners who fired a total of 612 rebuys and 470 add-ons to build a $369,054 prize pool. ‘Eleres88‘ won the event outright for $62,622. Second place finisher ‘conejin_20‘ picked up a $44,639 score and ‘TheGrinderØ‘ added $31,820 to their bankroll for coming in third place.

Other SCOOP winners on Saturday included ‘corresao’ (Event #5-Low) ‘staanemer’ (Event #5-Medium), ‘Nr1InEurope’ (Event #6-Low), ‘fish_sah’ (Event #6-Medium), ‘YouGoBrokeOk’ (Event #7-Low), ‘Lackoo87gcb’ (Event #7-Medium), ‘PufuMiu’ (Event #11-Low), ‘MarkBang’ (Event #11-Medium), ‘Malicious20’ (Event #12-Low), ‘cassolGana’ (Event #12-Medium),
