More PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker (SCOOP) action took place on Tuesday, May 12, but the day was more about what’s to come than what happened. Only a few of the day’s events played to a completion, as several were two-day competitions that set up for big finishes on Wednesday.

Mike ‘SirWatts’ Watson was one of the Tuesday winners, taking the title in Event #51-H: $1,050 NL 2-7 Single Draw, $75K Gtd. Watson topped a field of 84 entries to win $22,050. The win was Watson’s fourth SCOOP title and he beat Alexander ‘joiso’ Kostritsyn in heads-up play.

Event #55-H: $530 NL [Progressive KO], $350K Gtd was reached an end, as ‘P0KERPR02.0‘ topped the field of 1,066 entries to win $36,672.56 plus $37,229.38 in bounties. ‘PaGaOVelhinho‘ was runner-up for $36,671.78 plus $7,809.57 in bounties.
