SCOOP: Patrick ‘pleno1’ Leonard Takes Down $215 Heads Up PLO

0


Twice in his career Patrick ‘pleno1’ Leonard has been the #1-ranked online poker tournament player in the world. For the better part of the last year he’s been in and out of the top 10 of those rankings and on Friday afternoon he took a big step toward moving up those rankings with a win in the PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker.

Leonard beat Gavin ‘gavz101’ Cochrane to win Event #20 Medium ($215 Heads-Up Pot Limit Omaha) for $18,567.27 and the first SCOOP title of his career. Leonard had no plans on playing on Friday, but it turned out for the best.


In the $2,100 High version of the event, ‘_TheJds_’ beat out Australia’s James ‘Andy McLEOD’ Obst to win $72,600. Obst had to settle for $43,560 as runner-up. PocketFiver ‘Olista19’ and ‘paulmoko’ chopped the $27 Low version, with ‘Olista19’ taking home $5,157.49 after eventually emerging victorious while ‘paulmoko’ earned $4,657.49.

The biggest winner on Friday was Germany’s ‘KornmeisterX’ who took down Event #19 High ($1,050 NLHE Thursday Thrill Special Edition) for $139,196.55. He also won $51,521.89 in bounties for a total take home of just over $190,000. Russian ‘Ti0373’ finished second for $101,820 plus another $39,096.62 in bounties.

The other big winner on Friday was Robert ‘pokerguru740’ Kuhn. He beat out ‘MITS 304’ to win Event #23 High ($2,100 Six Max NLHE Zoom) for a $131,040 payday.
