  1. In the lead-up to one of the busiest Sunday's of the year, Friday was a relatively standard day for the PokerStars Spring Poker Championship of Online Poker. A total of 12 events completed action with the world's top-ranked player earning a SCOOP title of his own. The largest prize pool of the day was in SCOOP Event #44 ($2,100 Progressive KO Thursday Thrill SE No Limit Hold'em). Between the prize pool and bounty pool, $861,000 was dispersed into each. 861 players entered and 'B1GL1P$$$'emerged victorious with over $191,000 earned between the prize pool and collected bounties. A heads up deal was made between B1GL1P$$$ and 'bagoch', with the latter earning a shade under $200,000 total. SCOOP Event #43 ($530 Deep Stacks NLHE) drew 1,124 runners and created a prize pool totaling $562,000. As a result of a three-player deal, 'juarnes' came out on top with $82,574 and 'que_te_crio' ($72,893) and 'bombuslol' ($67,534) both earned fine results for their place. The final SCOOP event on Friday came in the Five Card Draw variety as 88 players turned out for SCOOP Event #45 ($1,050 No Limit 5-Card Draw). Chance 'ChanceCU' Kornuth came into the final table looking for his second SCOOP title in as many days but was denied by 'u1ker', who earned $23,980 for the win. Also making the final table was current PocketFives #1 ranked player, 'lena900.' 'lena900' wasn't done there though. The Swede ended up on top of Event #48 Medium ($109 Five Card No Limit Omaha Eight or Better Six Max Zoom) for $22,457.13.

  2. The PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker continues to draw in large fields for new events and that trend continued on Thursday. Fields in the hundreds and thousands turned out for tournaments such as the Total Knockout Bounty event and the No Limit Omaha Win The Button. A few familiar faces took down titles including Chance 'ChanceCU' Kornuth. Kornuth finished on top in Event #39 High ($1,050 Total Knockout Bounty) and earned $81,336, all from collecting bounties. Other players from the 832 who entered, included Andre 'aakkari' Akkari and top #3-ranked 'C. Darwin2'. Justin 'ZeeJustin' Bonomo almost claimed his second victory of SCOOP in the SCOOP Event #40 High ($10,300 Six Max Pot Limit Omaha) but fell to Ognjen 'psjebemvas' Sekularac, who earned $386,400 for the largest win of the day. Skeularac already had one PLO final table to his name from earlier in the series and denied Bonomo of his second SCOOP title of 2017. The Medium version of the PLO event was chopped three ways but it was 'BlackFourtuna' who when the tournament and over $109,000 adjusted first place prize. Event #41 High ($5,200 No Limit Hold'em Eight Max) brought in a field of 252 entries and '€urop€an' beat them all to earn $252,525 and the title. Jens 'Jeans89' Kyllönen and Vladimir 'vovtroy' Troyanovsky made the final table but bowed out in fourth and fifth place, respectively. mikki696 came out on top in Event #42 ($530 No Limit Omaha Eight Max Win The Button) in a three-way deal for $31,207 at a final table that featured Mike 'SirWatts' Watson and Connor 'blanconegro' Drinan.

  3. In 2016, Brazilian players won an amazing 21 PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker titles. If the opening events of 2017 SCOOP are any indication, they’re going to have little-to-no trouble smashing that number this year. Brazilian players won four SCOOP titles on Monday, with Diego ‘Mr.Bittar’ Bittar leading the way with a $246,504 score in Event #4 High ($2,100 No Limit Hold’em) after chopping heads-up with Germany’s ‘sk2ll_m0dR’. Bittar beat out 751 other players to win the first SCOOP title of his career. Bittar came into SCOOP as the #39-ranked player in the world, and #4 in Brazil. The other Brazilians picking up SCOOP titles on Monday were ‘ViDss’, who won Event #3 Medium ($215 Progressive KO), for $60,482.02 after chopping with former #1 Tim ‘Tmay420’ West, Felipe ‘lipe piv’ Boianovsky, who won Event #6 (Medium) $109 Six Max No Limit Hold’em outright for $41,811 and Soul Dog RJ, who took down Event #6 (Low) $11 Six Max No Limit Hold’em for $12,530.54. Dylan ‘ImaLucSac’ Linde beat a final table that included Stevan ‘random_chu’ Chew, Justin ‘ZeeJustin’ Bonomo, #4-ranked ‘inhoo’, ‘Apotheosis92’ and #7-ranked ‘Ariados’ to win Event #6 High ($1,050 Six Max NLHE) the second SCOOP title of his career and $126,852.24*. The final three players agreed to a deal that saw each walk away with at least $119,000.87. Germany’s ‘O$kar15’ won the Sunday Million Special Edition (Event #4 Medium), for $160,989.46 after coming to an agreement with the final three players remaining. The $215 buy-in event attracted a field of 6,754 players. Jonas ‘donut604’ Mackoff finished sixth for $43,225.60.

  4. The 2017 PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker was supposed to have wrapped up on Tuesday with the final table of the Main Event. A server issue mid-way through the first week forced PokerStars to reschedule a total of nine events for Wednesday. And while most of the poker world was still relishing in Charlie Carrel's Main Event win, Nick Abou Risk almost did something really special. Seven years Terrence Chan pulled off the impressive feat of winning two Spring Championship of Poker Limit Hold'em events, at different buy-in levels, on the same day. On Wednesday, Chan was an active participant in Risk's attempt at matching the feat. Risk made the final table of Event #33 High ($2,100 Six Max Limit Hold'em) and #33 Medium ($215 Six Max Limit Hold'em). He got heads-up in both events, beating Chan in the High version for a $69,160 score before fi shing second behind 'DAEXTASY' for$15,325.20. The Low version was won by 'rodksy_20' for $6,462.69. The #11-ranked player in the world, Andras 'probirs' Nemeth of Hungary, beat out 509 other players to win Event #34 High ($2,100 Four Max NLHE) for $170,835.23 after chopping with 'OLD TIME GIN' and 'Prot0'. 'Fresh_oO_D' beat former #1-ranked Conor '1_conor_b_1' Beresford to bank $67,044.32. and 'Saiiizka' topped Viktor ‘Isildur1’ Blom in the Low version for $67,044.32.

  5. [caption width="640"] Charlie Carrel beat Harrison Gimbel to claim the ,300 PokerStars Spring Championship Main Event (Neil Stoddart / PokerStars photo)[/caption] One of the most hotly anticipated final tables in online poker history included some of the game’s best players, a former #1-ranked PocketFiver, a power outage and a negotiation for over $2.3M before Charlie ‘Epiphany77’ Carrel emerged victorious in the PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker Main Event (High) for just over $1.2M. The final table included former #1-ranked player ‘C. Darwin2’, Harrison ‘gibler321’ Gimbel, Connor ‘blanconegro’ Drinnan, Carrel, Emil ‘Maroonlime’ Patel and '€urop€an'. A few minutes before play was set to resume on Tuesday, Drinnan tweeted that he, and one other unnamed player (later confirmed to Carrel) was in the midst of a city-wide power outage in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The tournament was paused, but after a 30-minute delay all players had power and the tournament resumed. Once it did, it didn’t take too long for just two players to be left in contention for the $1.356 million first place prize, but as many expected the final two players, Carrel and Gimbel, quickly came to terms on a chop. Gimbel walked away with $1,122,873.99 secured and Carrel had $1,100,899.99 locked up and eventually won the $100,000 left to play for. The Medium version went to ‘ROFLshove’ for $787,312.19 while the Low version saw ‘madalain’ walk away with $221,516.37 for an outright victory.

  6. While most of the poker world had their eyes focused on the opening day of the 2017 Spring Championship of Online Poker Main Events, there were 18 other events that wrapped on Sunday with three-time World Series of Poker bracelet winner Brian Rast beating a stacked final table to win the first SCOOP title of his career. Rast beat out 156 other players, including a final table that included 'Bencb789', Adam 'adamyid' Owen, Alex 'Bigfox86' Foxen and eventual runner-up Scott 'gunning4you' Seiver to take home Event #52 High ($1,050 No Limit Deuce to Seven) and $36,502.50. Seiver ended up with $25,120 for his second place finish. While Rast may have been the most high-profile winner on Sunday, the biggest winner was Andy 'andyafc#1' Laurie, who won Event #49 ($2,100 Six Max NLHE) for $124,019.19 after coming to terms on a deal with 'Mortan23' and 'Scarface.VLT' once there was just three players remaining. Just 24 hours after banking a six-figure win for taking down Event #46 (High), 'ross_654' finished fourth for $57,970. Sweden's 'IAmSoSo' won the Medium version of the event, taking home $52,575.78 after a heads-up chop with former #1-ranked 'eisenhower1' and Estonia's 'ProuaFinal' won the Low version for $22,585.07. 'Tagomago' won almost $95,000 total for winning Event #50 High ($530 NLHE PKO WTB) and Giorgos 'Talibaf' Giorkatzis chopped his way to a $65,363.48 score in Event #53 High (Six Max Pot Limit Omaha).

  8. The PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker is one of the highlights of the online poker calendar year. A widespread outage on Monday however put a damper on the festivities as a number of events were cancelled as players were unable to connect to PokerStars. Before all of that though, Kenny ‘SpaceyFCB’ Hallaert, Adrian ‘Amadi_017’ Mateos and Eric ''thechips55' Wasserson each managed to get into the winner's circle. Hallaert beat out 788 other players to win SCOOP Event #29 High ($1,050 Eight Max NLHE) and $147,937.50. It was the first SCOOP win of his career and the second from a 2016 November Niner this year. Jerry 'hummylun' Wong won Event #14 High ($2,100 Razz) earlier this week. Arne 'juarnes' Coulier finished second for $106,515. Former #1-ranked Patrick ‘pads1161’ Leonard, who also recently won a SCOOP title, finished fourth for $59,175. 'Hiran bass' won the Medium version of the event for $57,233.94 while 'Fralanganas' took home $13,517.36 after topping the 9,318-player field in the Low version. Mateos added a SCOOP title to his list of impressive accomplishments by taking down Event #30 High ($2,100 Six Max No Limit Hold'em) for $234,030.07 after coming to a heads-up deal with Luuk 'pokerkluka' Gieles. 'Naza114' walked away with $118,890.42 for winning the Medium version of the event while 'Jociasiee' beat out 10,572 players to win the Low. The final two players in Event #31 High ($2,100 No Limit Hold'em) got together after outlasting 874 others to chop up a little over $543,000. 'FaNjkEEE' ended up with $284,918.82 after eventually beating 'Nolet20'. The runner-up had to settle for $258,201.18. The final three players in the Medium version also chopped up the winnings. Korpieworm took home $173,243.90 after finishing first, 'D1ngD0ng11' got $163,024.88 as runner-up while 'Gaoyu123' earned $142,315.48 for a third place finish. 'Ekonom82' won the Low version outright for $39,100.55. Wasserson won Event #32 High ($1,050 Six Max Pot Limit Omaha Progressive KO) for $36,393.40, plus another $14,190.41 in bounties, after chopping heads-up with 'Badger'. The Medium version went to 'Kinpez' for $15,814.73, plus $5,488.34 in bounties. The Low version was one of ten events cancelled due to a server outage.

  9. [caption width="640"] Andrey ‘Gigaloff’ Zhigalov had himself a fun Saturday - one SCOOP title, one SCOOP runner-up (PokerStars photo)[/caption] Of the six PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker final tables in play on Saturday, nobody made more of them than Andrey ‘Gigaloff’ Zhigalov. The Russian made the final table of both High events, taking runner-up in one and winning the other for the first SCOOP title of his career. Matthias ‘Mati312’ Brandner finished one spot ahead of Zhigalov to win Event #21 High ($1,050 Badugi) for $22,900. The pair actually made a deal heads-up, so Zhigalov walked away with $21,000 for finishing second. The Medium buy-in event went to ‘timohasan’ for $8,845.20 while ‘Senkel92’ topped the 2,322-player field in the Low buy-in version to win $3,948.86. Zhigalov finished off his strong day by beating out 182 other players to win Event #22 High ($1,050 Limit Omaha Eight or Better) to win $39,802.50. The final table included some of the best mixed game players in the world including Richard ‘CHUFTY’ Ashby, Adam ‘Adamyid’ Owen and Alex ‘dynoalot’ Difelice. ‘SkyScraper93’ finished runner-up for $21,960. ‘nemets’ took down the Medium LO8 event for $14,800 while ‘kazaryan1989’ won the Low event for $5,143.46 after chopping heads-up with Sn4pC4ll. Event #26, the High Roller Heads Up event, began on Saturday.

  10. 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.

  11. [caption width="640"] Gordon Vayo had no trouble closing out Event #1 (High) of the Spring Championship of Online Poker on Monday {WSOP photo)[/caption] Most of the attention on the 2017 Spring Championship of Online Poker on Monday was focused squarely on the second day of play in the three Main Events. While those were each playing down to a final table of nine, nine other events wrapped up including the final Phase of Event #1 and that’s where the biggest winner of the day came from. Gordon ‘holla@yoboy’ Vayo beat out the 566 players in Phase 2 of Event #1 ($1,050 No Limit Hold’em) to walk away with a shade more than $692,000. Phase 1s of the event actually began running nearly three weeks ago, with each Phase 1 feeding into Monday’s final phase. First place was originally guaranteed $1 million, but the final four players agreed to a deal that saw every player walk away with at least $413,000. Runner-up ‘girafanger7’, who was chip leader at the time of the deal, walked away with $745,000. He also nearly made the final table of the $10,300 Main Event (High), finishing tenth for $72,567.49. ‘funwheel’ took home $193,535.22 for topping the Medium version of Event #1, while ‘squirrelporn’ banked $100,060.07 after winning the Low. ‘compris’ topped a field of 866 players in Event #54 High ($2,100 Eight Max No Limit Hold’em) to win $320,420. The Medium version had 5,068 players, with ‘ BAGHDADD’ coming out on top, earning $156,745.51 for an outright win. The Low version went to ‘ceda_ks” for $36,754.31 Ankush ‘pistons87’ Mandavia chopped Event #57 High ($1,050 NLHE, Eight Max, Progressive KO) with ‘freddopizza’ for $96,051.57.

  12. The 2017 PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker wraps up this weekend with the flagship event of the series, the SCOOP Main Event. Many poker players and fans might find themselves unable to play for a myriad of reasons, but they can still find themselves in action. Some of the world's top online poker players are selling SCOOP Main Event packages on StakeKings.com including Jeff Gross, Doug Polk and former #1-ranked player, Chris 'Gettin Daize' Oliver. StakeKings, as the name suggests, is a staking site that allows fans and investors anywhere in the world to buy a percentage of action from some of the best poker players in the world. StakeKings only works with a select group of players and those wanting to sell have to pass a thorough vetting process before being approved and all payments are handled by StakeKings. Some fans, such as New Jersey's Ethan Brandenburg, have managed to find success by investing small sums in players on the site. Brandenburg recently told PocketFives that buying pieces was a fun way to have a sweat. He was one of the fortunate few who had a piece of Charlie Carrel in the PokerStars Championship Bahamas Super High Roller. “It was fun to be able to sweat a tournament of that size for an amount that fits within my bankroll,” said Brandenburg of Carrel’s runner-up finish. “I have had many solid scores on this site for someone who could never be playing these high-stakes tournaments without their platform that offers fixed markup bidding.” Looking through the StakeKings marketplace there are a number of options available for people looking to get in on the SCOOP Main Event, with pieces going for as little as $1. SCOOP Event #55 (High): $10,300 Main Event One of the most high-profile players in the world right now, Doug Polk is one of a handful of players selling action to the $10,300 buy-in SCOOP Main Event via the auction method. The top 100 bids for 0.1% pieces will have a piece of Polk's first and second bullet, both of which will be streamed on Twitch. Others selling pieces for the SCOOP High Main Event include 2016 PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker Super High Roller winner 'bencb', Oliver, Gross, Magnus Martin and Thomas Lutz. Pieces of Oliver, who has been ranked #1 in the world twice in his career, are available for as little as $5. SCOOP Event #55 (Medium): $1,050 Main Event A few months ago, Bryan 'bparis' Paris became just the second player to hit $10 million in lifetime online poker tournament earnings and now anybody can buy a piece of him in the SCOOP Main Event (Medium). He is also using the auction method, with 0.5% pieces up for grabs. As an added bonus, Paris will be streaming his play in the event on Twitch to give everybody sweating him an up-close way to sweat the action. Three players, Martin, Lutz and Oliver, each have two packages posted for this event, the first bullet plus a second. Daníel Már, Benjamin Barrows and Matt Vengrin also have packages available for this event. SCOOP Event #55 (Low): $109 Main Event While SCOOP Event #55 (Low) is the lowest buy-in SCOOP Main Event at $109, that doesn't mean fans and investors can't buy a piece for a potentially massive score. Barrows, Lutz, are Martin are each selling two separate packages for the event, with pieces available for as little as $1. Már also has a package available, selling pieces of a single bullet for as low as $3.
  13. Wednesday's PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker included a well-respected online grinder winning his first SCOOP title, a star-studded Seven Card Stud final table and Austria's 'caaaaamel' chopping his way to the single biggest cash prize of the day. Canada's Jonas 'donut604' Mackoff beat out 244 other players to win Event #36 High ($1,050 Pot Limit Omaha Eight or Better) for the first SCOOP title of his career. Mackoff chopped heads-up with 'Fred_Brink' and walked away with $45,437.50. The final table also included Bernardo 'bedias' Dias, Ryan 'PROTENTIALnm' Laplante, Sebastian 'p0cket00' Sikorski and Ari 'BodogAri' Engel. The Medium buy-in of the event was chopped three ways with 'Neo_gracz' getting the smallest payout at $13,933.09 but the eventual title. 'WeakyLeeks' and 'Rabscuttle' took home $14,943,78 and $14,418.13 respectively. The low version saw no deal made at the final table with 'theone93' earning $6,019.19 for the outright win. The $2,100 Super Tuesday Special Edition (Event #37 High) drew 771 players with 'caaaaamel' earning $216,875.01 for the victory after making a deal with four players remaining. 'Go0se.core!' ended up second for $175,000, 'Kot_Spartac' finished third for $175,000 while 'etxnl01' took $203,207.20 for his seventh eight cash of SCOOP 2017. Brazil's Fernando 'fviana' Viana da Costa won the Medium version of the event for $72,643.57 after a three-way deal. Austria's 'blank seat' won the $27 buy-in Low version for $31,984.07. The most star-studded final table came in Event #38 High ($1,050 Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo) where Viktor 'Isildur1' Blom, Calvin 'cal42688' Anderson, Brian 'tsarrast' Rast and Joao 'joaoMathias Mathias Baumgarten couldn't outlast Benjamin 'lulDocuments' Lukas. The win was worth $43,942.50 for Lukas. The fourth place finish for Anderson was his 22nd of SCOOP 2017 - nine behind the overall leader, 'krakukra'. 'ZISIMO7' and 'BurnsFlipper' earned $14,652 and $4,588.68 respectively for their wins in the Medium and Low buy-in Stud events.

  14. 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.

  15. [caption width="320" align="alignleft"] Australia's top-ranked online poker player, Rory Young, adopted a new kitten just days after arriving in Rosarito for SCOOP[/caption] The top-ranked online poker player in Australia isn't actually in Australia right now. Rory Young is hanging out in Rosarito, Mexico with a few other grinders, preparing for the grind that is the PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker. And he couldn't be any happier. "I owe my love of Rosarito to 'JWProdigy', Jordan Westmoreland," said Young, who met Westmoreland a little over a year and a half ago while traveling with good friend Alex Lynskey just after Lynskey finished fourth in the Aussie Millions Main Event. "Then we ended up traveling around Adelaide. We went up and stayed at my parents' beach house up in Central Coast. We had a grind house up there for a little while. That was a lot of fun. We figured we'd keep the momentum going." Young, Westmoreland, Benjamin 'spektah' Leblonde and Timothy 'Weygang' English rented a house in Rosarito and instantly fell in love with the place. "Everyone's helpful, it's just a really relaxing environment; margaritas by the beach, waking up every day to good weather, and great food. The cost of living here is like really cheap as well," said Young. As 2016 SCOOP approached, they packed up and headed off to Cabo San Lucas for the series. There, Young and his group met up with some more of Australia's finest poker players; Jonathan 'xMonsterxDongx' Karamalikis and Stevan 'random.chu' Chew. While the camaraderie was great, Young found that poker was taking second billing to everything that Cabo offers. " I'll never do that again. It was more like we were there to party and play SCOOP on the side," said Young. "When SCOOP's so big it's probably not the best idea to be partying so much. Do more of a low-key thing this time and then party in Cabo afterwards." And that's exactly what Young has planned for this year. He'll be staying in Rosarito through the end May when his attention turns to the World Series of Poker. His poker-playing roommates this year include Adrian 'Knightsgee' Attenborough and Corey 'Corlusion' Kempson. The group plans to take advantage of the two-week break between SCOOP and the start of the WSOP with lots of relaxation. Having played a full WSOP schedule before, Young is looking at a different approach this year. "I'll probably focus a lot on cash games in the World Series and definitely find all the good tournaments but I wouldn't be on that every day tournament grind," said Young, who won't be sitting in every single tournament in pursuit of a second WSOP bracelet. " I'll play the good ones. The Millionaire Maker and stuff like that but I'm not going to be sitting there flicking $1Ks from the start. It's just too much of a grind and I want to try to enjoy my life a bit more rather than just like the live grind is very, very demanding." Lots of tournament grinders dream of winning a WSOP bracelet. Young did that in his home country in 2014, winning the $1650 Dealer's Choice event at WSOP Asia Pacific. Just don’t tell Young it’s a WSOP bracelet or ask him to show it to you. “It feels like ages ago. It’s not really a bracelet win. It was like a 60-person mixed game field in Australia. I lost the bracelet actually,” said Young. “I lost it in Mexico last year. I brought it with me because it was in my safe at home in Sydney, and I hadn’t taken it out since I won it. I’m not really a sentimental person, so I thought I’d maybe melt it down and make it into a cool necklace or a ring.” Over the last few months, Young has climbed up the PocketFives Rankings and broke into the top 20 last week for the first time in his career. He’s currently #19 in the world but if you ask him, it’s basically a months-long heater. “I’m barely playing. I’m just playing majors and just seem to bink something every week. It’s not down to any improvement of my game, I’m just running better now,” said Young. The run good couldn’t possibly come out a worse time for Young – or any Australian poker player for that matter. In March, the Australian senate voted to effectively ban online poker. While the law hasn’t taken effect yet, most of the bigger online poker rooms have indicated they won’t operate in the country once it does. That means Young and his friends could soon find themselves looking at places like Rosarito as a more permanent solution, just like American grinders did after Black Friday. “It might be a bit apathetic, thinking that I have no bearing on the decision, but I’m more of a realist,” said Young. “There’s not much that I could have done to have swayed the decision. Basically, I’m not too hopeful.” Young may not leave the country. He recently signed on as an ambassador for Star Casino in Sydney and could see himself focusing on playing live once he returns home after the WSOP. “If I can’t play online in Sydney, so be it. I’m not desperately out here grinding four days a week of online MTTs anyway. Worst-case scenario, I can just fly to New Zealand for the weekend whenever I want to play majors,” said Young. “I think I’m just going to take it easy and put my time into the Star and look at doing some stuff there instead of playing online. But I know quite a few people who are looking to relocate.”
  16. [caption width="640"] Justin Bonomo was one of a handful of high-profile SCOOP winners on Sunday (WPT photo)[/caption] Many observers consider Ben 'Sauce123' Sulsky to be one of the best poker players in the world and on Sunday he provided more evidence to this after topping the PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker $25,000 Heads-up No Limit Hold'em event. Sulsky's win was one of 15 SCOOP events that wrapped up on Sunday. Sulsky beat 'alimounda' in the Event #26 (High) final after dispatching 'donthnrmepls' in the semi-final to win $180,000. Finishing second was worth $100,000. Ben 'ben86' Tollerene lost in the semi-final to 'donthnrmepls'. Each semi-final loser won $60,000. The Medium version of the event was won by'mandza17' for $88,800 while Luke 'LFMagic' Fields took home $28,491.87 for winning the Low version. Sulsky wasn't the only high-profile winner on Sunday though.Justin Bonomo won Event #25 High ($2,100 Eight Game) for $95,680 and the second SCOOP title of his career. Bonomo overcame a stacked final table that included 'iteopepe88', Benjamin 'lulDocuments' Lukas and RaúlGonzalez. Brazilian 'fred_volpe' won the Medium version for $25,210.90 and 'phinster' topped the Low event for $11,281.02. Possibly the toughest final table of the day though came in a game not spread very often - No Limit Omaha Eight or Better. Sam 'SamSquid' Grafton won the event for $51,285 after outlasting Bernardo 'Bedias' Dias, former #1-ranked Joao 'joaoMathias' Mathias Baumgarten, mixed game specialist Richard 'CHUFTY' Ashby and Brian 'Brianm15' England.

  17. [caption width="640"] Martin Jacobson now has a SCOOP title to go along with his WSOP Main Event title (PokerStars photo)[/caption] Before Martin Jacobson was a World Series of Poker Main Event champ, he was an online grinder of some repute. Tuesday afternoon the Swede proved he’s still got it when he beat out a tough final table to win the first Spring Championship of Online Poker title of his career. Jacobson beat out 461 other players, including a final table with TUTI88, Jeff ‘jeff710’ Hakim, Ivan ‘Negriin’ Luca in Event #8 (High) $530 No Limit Hold’em with rebuys to win $106,984.30 and add SCOOP champion to his list of impressive accomplishments. The win was also a potential big one for REG Charity as Jacobson is one of the poker pros who pledged to donate a percentage of his SCOOP winnings. While Jacobson’s win was his first in the Spring series, Calvin ‘cal42688’ Anderson beat out 1,571 other players to win Event #13 (High) $530 Zoom No Limit Hold’em. Anderson is the first player to win eight SCOOP titles and, with two World Championship of Online Poker titles, is also the first player to hit double-digit COOP wins. Anderson’s win earned him $62,919.67 plus $18,524.09 in bounties. Runner-up ‘WilsonJLD’ won $36,326.12 and an additional $14,069.77 in bounties. The first day of SCOOP final tables was all about Brazilians winning titles, but Tuesday saw that country shut out while Germany took three titles, including both Event #13 Medium and Low (No Limit Hold’em Zoom), which were won by 'AndreAS_1005' and 'Faahn' respectively. The second biggest winner on Tuesday was ‘Ro4dToBrook3’ who defeated Dominik Nitsche heads-up to win the $2,100 No Limit Hold’em Win the Button event for $102,250. Nitsche had to settle for the $75,000 runner-up score. ‘Ro4dToBrook3’ had qualified for the event via a $109 satellite. PocketFiver Christopher 'PokinStaR' Alcindor won Event #7 (High), $2,100 No Limit Omaha Hi-Lo Progressive Ko, for $36,920 and also earned $20,140.62 in bounties. German PocketFiver 'Mr.Woolf1' topped the 820-player field to win the Medium version of that event for $13,940.00 and additional $5,618.69 in bounties.
