After officially taking Friday off, the 2021 PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker resumed on Saturday bringing another four events to a conclusion including one of the most star-studded final tables of the series and the largest PKO to take place thus far. Over 10,000 people tuned in to watch popular Twitch streamer and PokerStars ambassador Lex Veldhuis as he battled at the stacked final table of Event 29-H ($2,100 NLHE, 8-Max). When the 211-entry field was down to just 8, Veldhuis found himself in a position to make a run at the title, however, just about every other seat at the final table was occupied by a top pro. This included five-time SCOOP title winner Talal ‘raidalot’ Shakershi (8th, $12,319.86), high-roller extraordinaire Dominik ‘Bounatirou’ Nitsche (8th, $16,161.20), and current #5-ranked Joao ‘Naza114’ Vieira (4th, $36,482.11). As his competition busted, Veldhuis continued to chip up. Eventually, Aliaksei ‘ale6ka’ Boika was eliminated in third place, taking home $47,857.37. That left Veldhuis to battle for the title against Brazilian online crusher Pedro ‘PaDiLhA SP’ Padilha who had done a masterful job of taking control of the final table and accumulating a massive chip lead. In the end, Veldhuis fell to the Brazilian and closed out his stream as the runner-up with a $62,779.37 payday. Padilha earned his fourth career SCOOP title and added the $82,354.31 first-place prize to his more than $7.8 million in online career earnings. The 24-hour delay was worth the wait for Brazil’s Pedro ‘LgwZ’, Grochocki who topped the 539-player field of Event 22-H ($2,100 NLHE, PKO, Thursday Thrill SE) to capture the $83,473.31 first-place prize plus an astounding $96,210.93 in bounties for an online career-high haul of $181,684.23. ‘RaiseUpBlind’ also grabbed a six-figure sum as the runner-up, taking home $83,472.88 plus $31,585.94 in bounties for a total of $115,058.82. ‘darogio’ picked up the bronze and locked up a total score of $72,231.02. Event 27-H ($1,050 8-Game) fell just 14 players short of reaching the $125,000 guarantee. That just fine by Russia’s Andrei ‘Premove’ Skvortsov who picked up a little extra value en route to taking down his third career SCOOP title and the $28,101.31 that came with it. This marks the third year in a row that Skvortsov was won a SCOOP with his first coming in a NL Omaha H/L event in 2019 and his follow up being a PLO8 title in 2020. ’nkeyno’ earned ‘$21,552.27 as the runner-up while Sweden former worldwide #2-ranked Robin ‘robinho’ Yitalo wrapped up in third place and added $16,529.51 to his $13.3 million in online career earnings. It took less than two hours for ‘Powergolf’ to pick up the win in Event 30-H ($1,050 NLHE, 7-Max, Hyper-Turbo, PKO). They blasted through the 305-entry field and walked away with the $28,320.93 first-place prize with an additional $31,574.20 in bounties for a total of $49,895.13. In second place was ‘wasylaa’ who, with bounties, earned $40,644.91 and on their third bullet, ‘Shipmopff’ climbed into third place which was good for a total of $30,434.48.

It was an eventful Thursday for the 2021 PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker as another 24 titles were handed out including two in the same event to the same player, one to a former worldwide #1-ranked crusher, and one to the first player of the series to capture three SCOOP victories. Winning a single SCOOP title is difficult enough as it is. This is why when Dejan ‘dejanic357’ Kaladurdevic became the first player representing the country of Montenegro to win a SCOOP event on Monday it was more than noteworthy it was history-making. The fact that Kaladurdevic, just two days later, became the first player of the series to capture two titles left some authentically amazed. Now, heads are shaking at the fact that, on Thursday, Kaladurdevic once again was the last player standing in a SCOOP High event and captured his third SCOOP title in four days. The heater for Kaladurdevic continued in Event 17-H ($1,050 NLHE, Deep Stacks) where he defeated a field of 277 runners to walk away with the $52,742.60 first-place prize. Over the course of his three wins, Kaladurdevic has earned a total of $195,486.11. On Thursday it was ‘BetForNympho’ who was forced to settle for second place behind Kaladurdevic, earning $39,935.89 as the runner-up. Dario ’Secret_M0d3’ Sammartino finished in third place, taking home $30,238.92. Event 18-H ($5,200 NLHE, 7-Max) was just the second event of the series, and the first NLHE tournament, to offer players an overlay. There were 139 total entrants, generating a prize pool just $55,000 short of the event’s $750,000 guarantee. In the end Elias ‘SinKarma’ Gutierrez was one of the big beneficiaries, earning the title and $174,365 for first place. Renan ‘Internett93o’ Bruschi finished as the runner-up, which was good for $120,000 and Daris ‘DEX888’ Pedes ended up in third place and earned $82.500 for his efforts. Russia’s ’RedPh0enix’ rose up to take down his second career SCOOP title in the 251-entry field of Event 19-H ($1,050 NLO8, 8-Max, PKO), earnings a combined total of $49,069.37 for first place. Although ’FONBET_RULIT’ ended up as the runner-up, winning $24,452.08, they actually took home roughly $1,000 less than Finland’s third-place finisher ‘kiiski’ who picked up more bounties and took home a total score of $25,458.72, The PKO tournaments continue to be favorites for SCOOP players as 611 entries piled into the lobby of Event 20-H ($1,050 NLHE, 8-Max, PKO) generating a prize pool of $611,000, more than $200K over the posted guarantee. Rinat ‘Zapahzamazki’ Lyapin from Russia took home the gold, and took banked a score of $84,004.67 including bounties. Javier ‘que_te_crio’ Fernandez ended up in second place and added $56,146.93 to his bankroll while ‘alimounda’ collected $37,636.32 for finishing in third. In Event 21 Finland’s Jussi ‘calvin7v’ Nevanlinna pulled off the rare double-SCOOP, winning two titles on the same day in the same event at different buy-in levels. First, he took down 21-H ($1,050 FLO8, 8-Max) for his sixth career SCOOP title and $23,734.84. He also collected all the chips in 21-L ($11 FLO8, 8-Max), topping the 3,211-entry field for an additional $4,533.98 and a seventh SCOOP victory. Nevanlinna has proven time and time again that he’s an excellent, well-rounded player having won SCOOP events in 8-Game, Stud Hi/Lo, NLHE, Pot Limit Omaha, and, now, Fixed Limit Omaha. Nevanlinna denied the Netherlands ‘bokkie87’ a third SCOOP title of his own, regulating him to runner-up in the High, which was good for $18,222.72. The UK’s ‘USoGotPwned’ finished up in third place in that event earning $13,990.76 to help him eclipse the $1 million career earnings mark. In the final event to play to a winner on Thursday, former #1-ranked Sami ‘Lrslzk’ Kelopuro took down his third career SCOOP title in Event 25-H ($1,050 NLHE, 8-Max, Turbo) and added $70,557.26 to his more than $16.8 million in career online earnings. Ukraine’s ‘Remi Lebo_10’ picked up $53,696.09 as the runner-up while ‘fkiw’ from Sweden took home the bronze and $40,864.27 for their efforts.

It didn’t take long for the PokerStars 2021 Spring Championship of Online Poker to find its first two-time series winner. It happened just four days into play and while many would have wagered that there would certainly be a player (or players) who would take down multiple SCOOP titles this year, almost no one saw it happening like this. On Monday, Dejan ‘dejanlc357’ Kaladurdevic made SCOOP history after he captured the first-ever SCOOP title for a player from Montenegro when he won the SCOOP Kickoff Event ($530 NLHE Progressive Knockout) for $78,406.21. Well, he doubled up on that effort and became the first player in 2021 to take down two events. On Wednesday, Kaladurdevic topped the 988 player field of Event 11-H ($530 NLHE, 8-Max, Progressive Knockout) to claim the $34,582.28 first-place prize and added another $29,755.02 in bounties for a total score of $64,337.30. Long-time online grinder from Latvia ‘RovoDice’ was forced to settle for second place, taking home $34,581.70 plus another $14,415.26 in bounties. Brazil’s ‘IgorHKR’ finished in third, walking away with $20,518.14 and another $3,148.44 in bounties. Nosebleed online cash game specialist (and occasional heads-up challenge taker) Wiktor ‘limitless’ Malinowski put his skills on display by topping the stacked 105-entry field of Event 13-H ($10,300 NLHE, 8-Max, High Roller). As with many online $10K’s, the field was a who’s who of top-tier online grinders and, in the end, Malinowski finished with all the chips and banked the $241,956.69 first-place prize. Former #1 Simon ‘C Darwin2’ Mattsson finished in second place, good for $185,765.68, the fifth-largest online score of his career. Christoph ‘26071985’ Vogelsang claimed the bronze, earning $142,624.33. Adrian ‘Amadi_017’ Mateos picked up his third career SCOOP title by outlasting the 873-player field in Event 13-M ($1,050 NLHE, 8-Max, Freezeout, Super Tuesday). Mateos defeated the Netherlands’ ‘BRzRoll’ to take home the win and the $146,714.34 first-place prize. For his part, ‘BRzRoll’ also picked up a six-figure score, banking $107,614.36 as the runner-up. Aleksejs ‘APonakov’ Ponakovs had the last step on the podium and earned $78,934.91 for third place. Sweden’s ‘BomPang’ took down the final big buy-in event of the evening when they won Event 14-H ($1,050 PLO, 6-Max) for $68,835.91. ‘Fabahaba’, who just two days ago took down Event 07-M), fell just one spot short of joining Kaladurdevic in the SCOOP 2021 two-timer club finishing as the runner-up for $50,066.70. Pot Limit Omaha specialist Joni ‘bustoville’ Jouhkimainen picked up $36,415.23 for his third-place finish. Other winners on Wednesday included ‘MrGlauber’ (Event 11-L), ‘verdao134’ (Event 11-M), ‘19THEMACHINE83’ (Event 13-L), ‘Fagner CR7’ (Event 14-L), ‘devyatki’ (Event 14-M).

The stars of online poker were shining bright on Day Three of the 2021 PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker as the leaderboards were littered with top-ranked pros vying to take down one of the seven events that came to a conclusion on Tuesday. It took three days to wrap up Event #4-H ($2,100 NLHE Progressive Knockout) and in the end, it was the UK pro Andy 'BowieEffect' Wilson who outlasted the 445-player field and took home the first-place prize worth $151,779.41. Fellow UK grinder Ludovic ‘ludovi333’ Geilich finished in second place and added $83,950.76 to his over $4 million in career online earnings. Aliaksei ‘ale6ka’ Boika rounded out the top three, finishing in third place for $49,962.83. Samuel ‘€urop€an’ Vousden took home Tuesday’s largest payday when bested the 176-entry field of Event 08-H ($5,200 NLHE) for $177,176.74. Vousden had stiff competition in the home stretch of the final table including Matthias ‘iambest2’ Eibinger who finished as the runner-up for $135,035.20 and Sam ‘Str8$$$Homey’ Greenwood who ended up in third place for $102,917.14. Other notable players who made a deep run in this event included Mikita ‘fish2013’ Badziakouski (4th, $78,438.36), former #1-ranked Patrick ‘pads1161’ Leonard (7th, $34,725.76), and Sami ‘LarsLuzak’ Kelopuro (10th, 17,083.26). While it wasn’t the biggest tournament of the day, Event 09-H ($2,100 H.O.R.S.E.) was a big one for Talal ‘raidalot’ Shakerchi. Shakerchi topped the 65 player field to lock up the $35,425 first-place prize and, perhaps more importantly for the high-roller, his fifth career SCOOP title. Shakerchi has a long history of success in SCOOP with his victories dating back to 2012 as well as earning the Main Event title in 2016 that was worth more than $1.46 million. He bested ‘labrint93’ in heads-up play, who took home $24,050 as the runner-up and ‘Fabahaba’ ended up in third place for $18,200. Also of note for Event 09, in 09-M ($215 H.O.R.S.E.) current #1-ranked player in the world Yuri ‘theNERDguy’ Dzivielevski took down the 448 player field to earn $17,024 and his first career SCOOP title. Brazil’s Thiago ‘KKremate’ Crema rose to the top of Event 10-H ($1,050 NLHE, 8-Max, PKO) to capture his second career SCOOP title after outlasting Jon ‘apestyles’ Van Fleet in heads-up play. Crema booked a total score of $75,115.79 while the popular PocketFiver Van Fleet settled for a $59,959.20 payday as the runner-up. ‘Gogac sniper’ took home $30,478.84 in third place. One of the things that PokerStars does better than anyone else is providing championship online events in poker variants players simply can’t compete in anywhere else. And 57 players took advantage of that in Event 12-H ($1,050 5-Card Draw) where ‘Chillolini’ took home the title and $19,218.01 for first. They were joined on the podium by ‘aleksandra10’ who finished in second place for $13,627.97 and ‘krakukra’ in third for $5,926.43. Bruno ‘great dant’ Volkmann, currently the ranked #8 online player in the world, grabbed his first SCOOP title on Tuesday by taking down Event #15-H ($2,100 NLHE) for $74,191.09, the 14th best score of his prolific career. ‘EzPaTuLa’ wrapped up as the runner-up and added $57,121.76 to their bankroll while ‘mnstrkll’ finished in third place which was good for $43,979.668. Former #1-ranked ‘Legenden’ (who plays as ‘Leqenden’ on PokerStars) booked his fourth SCOOP title by besting the 267-entry field of Event 16-H ($1,050 6-Max, Turbo, Win The Button) for $50,964.22. ‘takechip’ earned $37,776.41 as the runner-up and the UK’s former top-5 ranked Jonathan ‘Proudflop’ Proudfoot added $28,001.27 to his more than $6.5 million in career earnings for finishing in third.
