SCOOP: Patrick ‘pads1161’ Leonard Wins Fourth Career Title

Former #1-ranked Patrick 'pads1161' Leonard earned his fourth career PokerStars SCOOP title.

It was another busy Sunday grind for players participating in the 2021 PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker as four more events wrapped up including a trio of massive Progressive Knockouts and one in which former #1-ranked UK pro Patrick ‘pads1161’ Leonard picked up his fourth career SCOOP title.

Leonard topped the 324-entry field of Event #57-H ($1,050 NLHE, Freezeout, Afternoon Deep Stack) to not only take home his first title of the 2021 series, his fourth SCOOP victory overall, but also $60,952.82 which he adds to his more than $12.8 million in career online earnings. Leonard had to use everything he teaches in his Run It Once Training course “Pads on Pads” (which serves as the top prize for the PocketFives #1 Number One contest) as the final table was packed with star power. Among the final nine were Jonathan ‘luckyfish89’ Clark (8th, $8,718.54), former #1-ranked Conor ‘1_conor_b_1’ Beresford (7th, $11,510.52), and SCOOP Super High Roller winner Joao ‘Naza114’ Vieira (5th, $20,062.92).

Finishing right behind Leonard in the standings was Dante ‘dantegoyaF’ Goya who took second place, which was good for a $46,168.25 score. And it was ‘CRmeimDabou’ who rounded out the top three and claimed $34,969.80 for finishing in third.

Just two days after finishing in third place in Event #55-H, Alexandros ‘Pwndidi’ Theologis went the distance in SCOOP #59-H ($530 NHE, 8-Max, PKO) for the second SCOOP title of his career. Theologis picked up $58,484.63 for the win and added another $42,201 in bounties for the six-figure sum of $100,685.63. Austria’s ‘Gselweckle’ fell in second place which brought them a total score of $73,133.50 and Canada’s ‘goertz232323’, who also had a nice Sunday, picked up $45,680.91 for grabbing the bronze.

Swedish grinder, and 2020 EPT Online Main Event winner, ‘WhatIfGod’ scored their third career PKO SCOOP victory after winning SCOOP #65-H ($2,100 NLO8, 6-Max, PKO). ‘WhatIfGod’ won the $28,199.14 first-place prize and with an additional $54,718.75 in bounties, collected a total sum of $82,917.89. Jens ‘Fresh_oO_D’ Lakemeier took in a total of $35,636.53 with bounties included as the runner-up. ‘Frank Taylor3’ finished in third place and walked away with a $26,614.67 score.

In just over five hours Argentina’s ‘Assad91’ weaved their way through the 1,144 entry field of SCOOP #67-H ($530 NLHE, Turbo, PKO) to grab their first SCOOP title and the $39,280.84 first-place prize. Paired with another $25,713.30 in bounties, they booked a total score of $64,994.14. ‘AA_THE_W.55’ finished up in second place, good for $39,280.21 and an additional $17,549.27 in bounties.
