SCOOP: Russia’s ‘BIack88’ Chops Way to $25K NLHE High Roller Title

0


Thursday’s action in the PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker was all about star power. Among the winners were a recent November Niner, a young high roller powerhouse, a Russian online poker legend and, of course, a couple of Brazilians.

Leading the way was Russia’s ‘Black88‘ who topped the 125-player field in the $25,000 High Roller event for $702,658.76. Runner-up ‘fish2013‘ ended up with $569,575.65 after the final two players agreed to a chop. Canada’s ‘Apotheosis92‘ posted his second third-place finish of the week and walked away with $398,531.

The best story of the day probably belongs to Charlie ‘Epiphany77’ Carrel though. The 23-year-old British pro, who has had a lot of success in live No Limit Hold’em High Roller events over the past two years, took down Event #16 High ($1,050 Six Max Pot Limit Omaha Eight or Better) after registering for it by mistake. The misclick earned him $67,410 while runner-up Andrew ‘UlDuffer’ Sweeney pocketed $49,113.

The win was the first SCOOP victory for Carrel.

Jerry ‘hummylun’ Wong, who finished eighth in the 2016 WSOP Main Event, took down Event #14 High ($2,100 Razz) to win $60,270. The final table included Shawn ‘buck21’ Buchanan, Viktor ‘Isildur1’ Blom and current SCOOP Leaderboard leader Calvin ‘cal42688’ Anderson. Anderson also made the final table of Event #15 Medium ($2,100 NLHE High Roller).

The Brazilians continued to add to their total 2017 SCOOP wins and now have seven total after ‘RickLogrado‘ and ‘felipectb440‘ won Event #15 (Medium) and #17 (Low) respectively. Last year Brazilian players took home 21 SCOOP titles and they are on pace to eclipse that total this year.
