0
Canadian Steve Tripp added a SCOOP title to his FTOPS title on Tuesday.

Steve ‘BetrThanPhil’ Tripp took the headlines on Day 3 of the PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker after grinding his way to victory in Event #8 (High) for a score of $100,343.

After 12 more events came to their conclusion on Tuesday, Tripp claimed his first SCOOP title after defeating “0PIGGYBANK” heads-up, with the latter taking away $86,213 after a deal between the two players had been agreed. It was Tripp’s second largest recorded online cash after he won $193,804 for taking down FTOPS Event #9 back in 2010.

Alex ‘lynskey99’ Lynskey came through an 8,562 player field in Event #8 (Medium) and claimed the first-place prize of $60,073. ‘Kobasteris‘ was the player to lose the heads-up battle and took away $42,472 in second place.

The biggest field of the day came in Event #8 (Low) after 27,101 players paid the $11 tournament entry fee and created a $265,589.80 prize pool, with Marcos ‘Marcos Epa’ Epaminondas taking the majority share. The Brazilian’s prize for outlasting the enormous field was $13,172, the honour of a SCOOP title to his name and his largest recorded online cash to date.

In Event #7 (High), ‘aDrENalin710’ beat out 120 opponents to win a score of $27,202, with ‘BelovCaXa’ banking $12,246 after securing victory in Event #7 (Medium). Russia’s ‘Iwantbearich‘ narrowly missed out on adding a SCOOP title to their previously won PokerStars MicroMillions gold medal after losing a heads-up battle to ‘kagor82’ in Event #7 (Low). The victor bagged a score of $4,841 with the Russian having to settle for a second-place prize of $3,371.

Day 3 saw the first HORSE events of this year’s series played out with ‘CMoosepower’ beating Luke ‘lb6121’ Schwartz to the title in Event #9 (High). Schwartz already has five SCOOP titles to his name, but the Brit was unable to attain his sixth on this occasion and had to settle for the runners-up prize of $24,800, with ‘CMoosepower’ earning $34,800 for the win.

Event #9 (Medium) saw Russia’s ‘Zapahzamazki’ record their second largest online cash after they came through an 823 field to take the title for $15,431.

Thomas ‘sandman201’ Taylor was able to cash in all three of the HORSE events, which included victory in Event #9 (Low) for $5,625, and a near-final table miss in the ‘High’ after he exited in 10th place.

Event #12 saw three Six Max ‘Win the Button’ PKO No Limit Hold’em tournaments played out with ‘corsei‘, ‘88pro88‘ and ‘alberto.m7‘ taking the titles.

$4,381 was added to the bankroll of Romania’s ‘corsei‘ courtesy of their win in Event #12 (Low), The UK’s Tommy ’88pro88′ Lawrence followed up on his impressive Sunday Million victory last month by taking down Event #12 (Medium) for $27,700, and last but certainly not least, ‘alberto.m7‘ took the win in Event #12 (high) for $56,828 after seeing off the Brits Jonathan ‘proudflop’ Proudfoot and Conor ‘1_conor_b_1’ Beresford into second and third place respecitivelty.
