SCOOP: Laszlo ‘omaha4rollz’ Bujtas Captures Third Career Title

Laszlo Bujitas earned his third career SCOOP title by taking down Event 06-H ($10,300 High Roller).

The momentum from Sunday’s start of PokerStars 2021 Spring Championship of Online Poker carried over into Monday as four new players added a SCOOP High title to their poker resumes and the action was highlighted by a high roller final table packed with some of online poker’s most prolific players.

There were no soft spots at the final table of Event 06-H ($10,300 NLHE, 8-Max High Roller) as Laszlo ‘omaha4rollz’ Bujtas outlasted the 116-entry field to take home the $254,255.57 first-place prize and the third SCOOP title of his career. Among the final table participants were Samuel ‘€urop€an’ Vousden, Dominik Nitsche, Artur ‘marathur1’ Martirosyan, and Jon ‘apestyles’ Van Fleet. For the second night in a row, former #1-ranked Fedor ‘CrownUpGuy’ Holz was forced to settle for second place but walked away with a $196,994.91 payday. Michael ‘imluckbox’ Addamo finished in third, earning $152,629.90, and another former #1, Simon ‘C Darwin2’ Mattsson, fell in fourth place earning $118,256.31 which sends him over $17 million in career online earnings.

The official SCOOP Kickoff tournament, Event 02-H ($530 NLHE, PKO) drew 1,321 runners to create a prize pool of $660,500. The winner was Montenegro’s Dejan ‘dejanic357’ Kaladurdevic who not only earned the $43,752.65 first-place prize and an additional $34,653.56 in bounties but also became the very first player from his country to win a SCOOP title. Kaladurdevic defeated Brazil’s ‘Alex Bez’ in heads-up play, who finished with $43,751.12 and an additional $21,872.42 in bounties for second place. The UK’s ‘dougiedan678’ captured the bronze for $25,958.60 plus $12,182/35 in bounties.

Event 03-H ($1,050 NLHE, 8-Max, Sunday Warm-Up SE) bested the $500K guarantee as 669 runners pushed the prize pool to $669,000. In the end, it was Romania’s ‘kreiNt’ who took down the tournament and grabbed $113,891.16 for first. ‘KayhanMok’ finished as the runner-up for $83,403.49 while ‘L_Cesk’ from Greece rounded out the top three and took home $61,077.42 for third. Right behind them were a pair of high roller MTT specialists in Mikita ‘fish2013’ Badziakouski who finished in fourth place for $44,727.73, and Timothy ‘Tim0thee’ Adams who fell in fifth for $32,754.64.

Event 05-H ($2,100 Pot Limit Omaha, 6-Max) was the only tournament of SCOOP 2021’s opening events to miss its guarantee. And it just barely missed, drawing 192 runners, just eight players shy of hitting the $400,000 guarantee. All the better for the players including the UK’s ‘Zero 1100101’ and ‘d.apollo777’. When it got to heads-up, the countrymen agreed on a deal that had ‘Zero 1100101’ walk away with $76,488.47 and the SCOOP title while ‘d.apollo777’ locked up $63,600.37. Just missing out on the deal was Sweden’s ‘sat1337en’ who finished in third place and took home $45,585.88.

Also of note, on Sunday night, Event 07-H ($2,100 NLHE, 7-Max, Turbo PKO, Sunday Cooldown) wrapped up with current #18-ranked Maskim ‘MAMOHT_T’ Mamonov taking down the title and a total of $88,727.52 for first.
