Drinan became the ninth player with five career PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker titles by winning Event #56 High (1,050 HORSE) and in the process joined Shaun Deeb as the only players to win four SCOOP titles in a single year. Drinan beat Mike 'goleafsgoeh' Leah heads-up to earn the fourth title and added $30,232.50 to his bankroll. Leah walked away with $21,545 for his efforts while third-place finisher 'wiNNin83' had to settle for $16,680. Deeb became the first player to win four SCOOP titles in 2012.

Mirza 'zazano' Muhovic won Event #57 High ($5,200 NLHE High Roller) to lock up a $201,606 score. Joel 'Odonkor1' Nordkvist fell one spot short of the title and had $155,222.20 to console himself with. Jonathan 'apestyles' Van Fleet came in third for $119,510.00. The final table also included 'bencb789' and Team PokerStars Pro Lex Veldhuis. The Dutch pro's Twitch stream of the final table broke his personal record for viewers with more than 34,000 people tuned in before he was eliminated in seventh place. Event #58 High ($2,100 Heads-Up NLHE) had 119 runners with 'CatLover666' and Phil 'Grindation' McAllister battling through all of them to make the final where 'CatLover666' picked up the win and $71,400. McAllister had to settle for $42,840.00.

  2. Longtime PocketFives grinder Mike goleafsgoehLeah (pictured) added another PokerStars WCOOPtitle to his name earlier this week after besting a field of 1,777 in Event #27, a $215 buy-in Six-Max Pot Limit Omaha tournament featuring progressive super-knockout bounties. When all was said and done, Leah banked a total of $37,226.91 after more than 13 hours of play. --- Tournament Poker Edgeis the only poker training site dedicated exclusively to MTTs and features over 1,000 training videos, blogs, articles, podcasts and a dedicated strategy forum for members. Check Tournament Poker Edge out on Twitter. --- The Toronto native has enjoyed a hugely successful career in both online and live tournaments. Leah boasts over $4.7 million in recorded live cashes, his biggest score coming after a second place finish at the 2014 Seminal Hard Rock Poker Open for $1.04 million. He also boasts a WSOP bracelet and even won two Circuit events within the same 24-hour period in 2014. With $2.58 million in recorded cashes, his online track record is just as impressive. Leah's first WCOOP win came in 2011 after topping a field of 292 players in a $320 Badugi event for $17,082. This week, Leah was back at it, battling his way through the PLO event's final table to take the biggest chunk of the $355,400 prize pool. When final table play began, Leah commanded the chip lead with 2.49 million, with Germany's 75PTI on his heels with 2.23 million. After a few small skirmishes, Leah got involved in a big hand with two-time WCOOP winner youngblood51 of Germany. Leah opened with a min-raise, which his opponent 3-bet to 300,000. It was folded around to Leah, who called, and the pair saw a flop of 9s-7h-Jh. Leah bet out over 145,000, which youngblood51 called, putting him all in. Leah showed Ad-Qh-5d-4h for a flush draw, with his opponent turning over As-Ac-Kh-5s for an overpair of aces. The turn came the 6h, completing the flush for Leah and leaving youngblood51 with no outs on the river. Soon afterwards, Colombia's Mayu marroca5 Roca (pictured) was sent to the rail after calling all-in after a 3-bet on a flop of 3c-2c-Js. Roca showed top two pair and a flush draw against 75TGI's two pair. The turn and river brought sixes, leaving both players with the same two pair and giving 75TGI the hand with his ace kicker. 75TGI continued amassing chips and took the lead before the action sped up with two players busting in just two hands. The first casualty was Norway's Orjan athillaSkommo, who succumbed to Leah's backdoor flush, giving him a fourth place finish and $10,662. Next, it was Denmark's Jonas Palsgaard1 Palsgard Christensen, who made a lesser two pair against Leah, leaving him in third place with a $15,993 score. When heads-up play began, 75TGI held the chip lead with 5.15 million to Leah's 3.73 million stack. The pair battled until the 13-hour break, which saw the tables turn in Leah's favor; Leah now held the lead with 5.16 million to 75TGI's 3.72 million. After another half-hour of play, 75TGI wrangled the chip lead back from his opponent before losing it again and facing an even larger 6.76 million stack in the final hand of the event. In it, Leah raised 160,000 from the button with Kc-Jc-Jd-7d, which 75TGI called with As-Td-Tc-4s. The pair saw a flop of 3h-6h-2s, giving 75TGI in overpair of tens and Leah an overpair of jacks. Both players checked and the turn came the Js. 75TGI check-called a 160,000 bet from Leah. After the 3s fell on the river, 75TGI bet out 480,000 and was raised all-in by his opponent. 75TGI called and showed his ace-high flush, but was trumped by Leah's backdoor full house, putting 75TGI in second place and giving Leah the win and a $28,432 payday plus $8,794 and bounties.

'CAZZETTEE', who narrowly missed out on the win in Monday's Event #3 (Medium) after taking second-place for $45,723, went one better in Event #10 (High) after they won the $2,100 Razz for $51,940. The final table action also saw Canada's Mike 'goleafsgoeh' Leah finish in sixth-place for $10,600 and Dzmitry 'Colisea' Urbanovich score $19,080 in fourth. 'aidanb4' took the top spot in Event #3 (Low) after coming through the 2,184 player field to win $7,426. While 'Maicoshaa', who won Event #9 (High) during last year's series, added another victory to their name, this time in Event #10 (Medium) for $17,024. Event #16 (Low) comprised of a $55 Six-Max Turbo High Roller tournament which saw 'ale6ka' come through the 5,977 field after they defeated '[Ro]Cristy' to win the $42,475 first-place. The $530 Six-Max Turbo Event #16 (Medium) was won by 'elhilario' for $75,035 after they came through a final table featuring PocketFives world no.#24 'th'Kick' and two-time PokerStars Super Tuesday champion Christopher 'Apotheosis92' Kruk.

  6. It's not every day that a player known in part for his online chops takes down two World Series of Poker Circuit rings in 24 hours, but that's exactly what happened to Canada's Mike goleafsgoeh Leah (pictured) on Friday. The scene of the crime: The Bike in Southern California. According to PokerNews, "Leah steamrolled Event #9, a $580 No Limit Hold'em tournament, on Friday afternoon. After claiming victory in that event and busting out of another tournament a short while later, Leah hopped in Event 11: $365 No Limit Hold'em Turbo. Less than 13 hours later, he won his second WSOP Circuit ring in a single day." Leah gleefully posted on Twitter, "So absurd; just won my 2nd @WSOPC ring of the day! Shipping Event #11 for $15k, no chop, and wrapped up Casino Champion at the same time." That Tweet brought out a wave of congratulations from peers, including Jason Brewer, who chirped back, "And you were just telling me 2 days ago how you didn't have one! Smh. Well done." David Paredesoffered his congratulations on Twitter, writing, "Amazing man! Congratulations. That's incredible, Mike." David "ODB" Baker added, "Pretty friggin impressive my friend... Save the Main for me, I'll be there Sunday." Leah reminded WSOP officials that he's experienced success at past Circuit stops: "I've been to three Circuit stops in the last two years and I've won Casino Champion at two of them. They're fun. I'm always motivated because I like Player of the Series stuff. It motivates me and helps me play my best every day. It gives you something to shoot for." He passed $2 million in live tournament earnings with the two rings, according to the Hendon Mob, and is third in terms of the number of in the money finishes in live events by Canadian players. His largest live cash to date came a half-decade go at Borgata in a $1,650 tournament for $319,000. Leah has $2.4 million in career online winnings in his PocketFives profile, including a $560,000 haul for chopping the WCOOP Main Event in 2011. He is a four-time FTOPS event winner, two of which came in 2013, and was once ranked as high as #78 worldwide on PocketFives. Congrats to Leah on his amazing accomplishment!

  7. [caption width="640"] Three cashes in a single day are just a result of the way Mike Leah approaches the WSOP grind each year.[/caption] Earlier this week, Mike Leah pulled off something that just might be some sort of World Series of Poker record when he cashed in three events in the same day. It’s impossible to verify since the WSOP doesn’t keep those sort of records, but Leah was able to do it because of the way the schedule worked and his almost insatiable hunger for success. Leah smiles when he’s asked about cashing in the $5,000 Six Max No Limit Hold’em (17th place - $24,799), $1,000 No Limit Hold’em (105th - $2,182) and the $1,000 Super Turbo Bounty (272nd - $998) in one day, but that also means he did something else, too. “Busting them all within fifteen minutes? Not as cool,” said Leah, who knows that his approach to playing the kind of volume he does at the WSOP isn’t something everybody is going to understand. “Regging the $1K Super Turbo and going to play for 15 minutes to try and triple up my stack or bust so that I can go back to the other ones, I know that I’m hurting my EV in that one, but it really doesn’t matter much,” said Leah. “If something goes wrong in the others ones, like it ended up happening, then I have that one as a back up plan to actually try and make a run in it. But I built up my stack enough in 15 minutes to just leave it in and make the money.” That’s right. Leah showed up the $1,000 buy-in Super Turbo Bounty, played for just about 15 minutes and then went to his stack in the $5,000 Six Max when that restarted with just 18 players left. After he busted that in 17th, he moved across the room to his Day 2 stack in the $1,000 No Limit Hold’em and went to work building that up. He only returned to his bounty stack while on breaks. He’s managed to cash nine times already this year, and a total of 28 times since 2015. Leah says its not about chasing the single-year cashes record (13), but more about maximizing his opportunities to make money and not wanting to miss out on a tournament that has value. “Not necessarily just trying to cash, but I don’t want to miss an event if it makes sense to not miss it, because it’s an event that I have a chance to win,” said Leah. “So whether it’s for Player of the Year, cashes, winning bracelets, it’s everything plus peace of mind knowing that i didn’t skip an event knowing that that was the one I was going to win.” Given that he’s taken this approach for the last several years, you’d think it was a system that involves extensive planning done weeks before the WSOP actually begins. That’s not the case though. Leah, who has yet to win a bracelet in Las Vegas after winning his first at WSOP-APAC in Australia three years ago, rides the old athlete’s cliche of taking one day at a time. But he does it with purpose. “I don’t look (at the schedule) more than a day or two in advance. So I started looking at (Friday’s) schedule (Thursday) just starting to think ahead just based on what Day 2s I might make and how I might do it. I also want to look at if there’s a big buy-in I might want to sell for,” said Leah. He does stay at the Rio to maximize the amount of sleep he can get each day. And halfway through the Series, Leah feels pretty well rested, but still not immune to having a bad day at the tables. “I’m feeling decent. I got a good nights sleep (Thursday) night. Skipped the first two hours of (Friday’s) $5K because I was feeling a little burned out after a frustrating day (Thursday), getting close in the shootout and then getting a lot of chips in the $3K HORSE and busting. Trying to just start fresh today,” said Leah. Hitting the refresh button each and every morning is easy says Leah. The way the WSOP schedule works and the variety of games played That’s the beauty of the WSOP. There’s always an event to be excited about the next day. I love playing all the games so no matter what, like today is a turbo it’s a change of pace and PLO8 is a lot of fun. So there’s always variety that makes it exciting.
  8. February may seem like forever ago, but it wasn't too long ago that the second month of 2018 saw the names of Chris 'moorman1' Moorman, Mike 'goleafsgoeh' Leah, and Viktor 'isildur1' Blom capture the headlines. Below are PocketFives' top five stories from February 2018, plus a look back at the February's Monthly PLB winner. MILESTONES: Chris 'moorman1' Moorman Earns 27th Triple Crown Chris 'moorman1' Moorman is online poker’s leading all-time money earner with, at time of writing, $15.595 million in online tournament winnings. In February 2018, Moorman captured headlines when he won his record 27th PocketFives Triple Crown. Moorman achieved the feat when he scored first place in tournaments from three different sites in back-to-back-to-back days. Moorman then went on to win two more in 2018 and bring his industry-leading total to 29. READ: MILESTONES: Chris 'moorman1' Moorman Earns 27th Triple Crown Stephen Chidwick Wins Inaugural U.S. Poker Open Title The poker world was treated to the first-ever U.S. Poker Open in February 2018. The eight-tournament high-roller series took place at ARIA Resort & Casino in Las Vegas with buy-ins ranging from $10,000 to $50,000. An elite group of poker's best were in competition across the eight events, including Daniel Negreanu, Phil Hellmuth, Justin Bonomo, Dan Smith, and Jason Koon. In addition to individual tournament scores for large sums of money, each player was looking to become the first overall U.S. Poker Open champion. At its completion, Stephen 'stevie444' Chidwick had cashed in four of the eight events to win more than $1.25 million combined and be crowned U.S. Poker Open champion. READ: Stephen Chidwick Wins Inaugural U.S. Poker Open Title WPT: Mike Leah Wins Fallsview Classic for First WPT Title The World Poker Tour once again made its seasonal stop at Fallsview Casino Resort in Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada, back in February. With it came a record-breaking field of 517 entries for the event and a final table that included one staunch Canadian grinder, Mike 'goleafsgoeh' Leah, looking for his first WPT title. Leah entered the final day of play ranked third in chips among the remaining 20 players. From there, he went on to claim victory and his first World Poker Tour title worth C$451,821 ($359,001). READ: Mike Leah Wins Fallsview Classic for First WPT Title Viktor Blom Stages Huge Comeback to Win partypoker MILLIONS Germany If 2018 was the year of anything, it's likely the year of partypoker. The online poker giant’s live tournament offering, partypokerLIVE, delivered enormous prize pool upon enormous prize pool all across the globe, including February's partypoker MILLIONS Germany in Rozvadov. That's where Viktor 'isildur1' Blom grabbed the title worth €1 million, but not without having to overcome a greater than 6-to-1 chip deficit during heads-up play against Pavel Plesuv. READ: Viktor Blom Stages Huge Comeback to Win partypoker MILLIONS Germany Leon Tsoukernik's Counterclaim Against Matt Kirk Dismissed Speaking of Rozvadov, King's Casino owner Leon Tsoukernik was back in the headlines in February with another episode involving his dispute with high-stakes poker pro "Aussie" Matt Kirk. Three months prior, in November, Tsoukernik filed a counterclaim for $10 million in damages. That was followed by Kirk's lawyers filing a motion to dismiss. At the end of February 2018, a Las Vegas judge dismissed Tsoukernik’s counterclaim it what appears to have ended a highly publicized legal tug o' war. READ: Leon Tsoukernik's Counterclaim Against Matt Kirk Dismissed 'European' Wins February Monthly PLB Title With 4,133.54 points, 'European' won the Monthly PLB title for February. 'European' booked 48 cashes in February, including scores of $86,000 for 707.11 points, $58,160 for 584.38 points, $56,975 for 463.68 points, $49,574 for 383.28 points, and $46,418 for 415.33 points. The $86,000 win for 'European' came in the $530 buy-in partypoker Powerfest #46-M: $500K Gtd NLH under the username 'JHelppi' when he outlasted a field of 979 entries.
  9. [caption width="640"] Canada's Mike 'goleafsgoeh' Leah talks about winning two SCOOP titles in 2016 and about repping his home country[/caption] The 48th event of the PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker ended with a win by Canada's Mike 'goleafsgoeh' Leah. The $2,100 Seven card Stud tournament had a field of 65 entrants and Leah's victory was memorable not only because he booked a $42,000 payday, but also because it was his second SCOOP victory of 2016 and second all-time. His first SCOOP title came just a few days earlier in a $27 Limit Hold'em Six Max. His reward was $6,300 and he helped ensure that Canada would be a force to be reckoned with during the annual PokerStars series. All told, Leah had one-seventh of Canada's 14 SCOOP wins this year. But the grind has taken its toll. "I'm still recovering from SCOOP," he said. "I haven't held down any food or water for 30 hours. I haven't had the recovery period I wanted to yet. Sixteen days in a row of playing 15 hours a day is an intense grind. I'm happy it's over, but as time goes on, I'll appreciate that I got two SCOOP titles. Looking back on it, I'll be satisfied with my results." Leah wasn't exaggerating when he said he couldn't hold down any food or water. You'd think he just ran a marathon, and in a sense he did: 240 hours of poker in just over two weeks. "I beat down my system so much that once SCOOP was over, my body shut down a bit," he said. In addition to his dual SCOOP titles, Leah has a pair of (WCOOP) bracelets. He took down a $215 Pot Limit Omaha Six Max Progressive Super Knockout last September and scored the "W" in a $320 Limit Badugi event in 2011. "SCOOP is by far more intense than anything else because I normally don't play a lot of tables, but SCOOP forces me to," the Canadian said. "Usually when I'm playing online, I'm playing one table and enjoying poker. During SCOOP, I'm pulling up most of the tourneys and they're all different game types. Saturday and Sunday there are five or six events a day, and this year every event was a two-day event. It was intense." For Leah, despite the physical beating his body took, the grind was well worth it, not only because he won two events, but also because SCOOP serves as a tune-up for the World Series of Poker. "It's a great warm-up for the WSOP to get re-acclimated to the games I don't play very often," he said. "It'd be nice if some of the SCOOP events were faster, though. I have no self-control. I can't take a day off when there's an event I want to play." Just like the WSOP, SCOOP features a variety of games in a variety of formats. If you're not a fan of Hold'em, you can play Stud, Omaha, Razz, Badugi, and plenty of other games instead. "I pretty much play anything anyway, but there are some events I enjoy more," Leah said. "There are some games I would play the low, medium, and high versions of no matter what like Mixed Games, whereas some of the other games I might skip one or two because I don't think I have much of an edge like the big buy-in PLOs where I wouldn't want to fire off money if I didn't think I had an edge. In the last five days when I was in the hunt for SCOOP Player of the Series, I fired everything." Shaun 'shaundeeb' Deeb ended up winning the 2016 SCOOP Player of the Series race with 925 points, while Leah ended up in a two-way tie for fifth at 760. "Poker is always about goals," Leah said of his Player of the Series battle. "That's one of the main reasons I've had success. I don't concentrate on the money. Instead, I focus on goals and competition and that helps me play my best and compete. That $27 Limit Hold'em tournament I won was only for $6,000. If I were looking at the prize pool, I wouldn't have cared that much, but because it's a SCOOP event and there's a title and a leaderboard, it helps me try harder." Leah is #8 on the all-time poker money list for Canada, according to the Hendon Mob, and represents his home nation in games all over the world. "I'm a proud Canadian. That's my home and that's the country I represent. I notice it a lot more when I'm at tourneys in Canada, like when I'm in Montreal and most people know me and look up to me. I feel like an ambassador," said Leah. "At the WSOP, I care about it and want to hear the Canadian national anthem played at my bracelet ceremony." If he does win his first bracelet on US soil and his second overall, he'll likely be surrounded by plenty of friends and family. "I'm confident it's going to happen this year," Leah said. "I can't see myself not winning one. My focus and my results lately have been good. I'm going there expecting to win at least one. I'm going there trying to be Player of the Year. I'm going to have as good of a chance as anyone because of my volume and because I play all of the games." Also on Leah's rail should he win a bracelet will be plenty of fellow Canadian poker pros. "The Greenwoods [Sam and Max]have been great recently," Leah said of his top-performing countrymen. "Mike 'timex' McDonald is great too. There are deep-skilled Canadian poker players I play with in Montreal who are all solid. My lesser-known buddy who travels with me is due as well: Thomas Taylor. He had a couple of final tables at the WSOP last year. I'm thinking this might be a breakthrough year for him."
  10. [caption width="640"] Mike Leah has made a habit out of winning at Fallsview Casino in Niagara Falls (photo provided)[/caption] Mike ‘GoLeafsGoEh’ Leah has a poker resume that is comparable with almost anybody in the world. He’s got a World Series of Poker bracelet, multiple World Championship of Online Poker titles, over $5.5 million in live earnings and just shy of $3 million in online earnings. Of all his achievements on the felt, Leah feels that he accomplished the most impressive feat on his poker resume on Monday afternoon at the Fallsview Hotel and Casino. The Canadian pro topped a field of 1,524 entries in the CAD$1,100 No Limit Hold’em event to take down CAD$244,256 ($187,051 US). This is the second year in a row and third time in the last four years he’s won this World Poker Tour prelim event. In 2016, he bested a field of 1,305 for CAD$210,108, and in 2014, he came out on top of a 649-entry field for CAD$118,982. “I think it ranks number one as my poker career accomplishment,” said Leah of his latest victory. “I’m very proud not only because of what I actually get but the fact that I came into this tournament saying ‘I’m going to win this poker tournament.’ Everything leading up to this tournament, I wanted, expected, and was going to do everything I possibly could to not just do good in the tournament, but to outright win it because I wanted to accomplish the feat of winning it in back-to-back years and three out of four years.” Some players may chalk up this kind of a run to some run good, but Leah made decisions to put himself in the right frame of mind before playing this event. After spending time in Montreal for a previous WPT stop at the Playground Poker Club, Leah spent a couple of days at home in Toronto before heading south to Fallsview. To get himself motivated for the upcoming tournament, he went back through his social media posts from a year ago, and looked at previous updates throughout his 2016 run at the title. “I went through my posts and chip counts and started to kind of visualize that I was going to do it again,” said Leah. “For me, motivation is probably my biggest factor of my success when I do good in a tournament. So, I just wanted to make sure I was motivated as possible so that I could make the run at it again.” Adding to Leah’s motivation was the location of the venue. The limited number of major tour stops in Canada got the 42-year-old veteran a little more excited playing on his home turf. “I really enjoy playing poker tournaments in Canada,” said Leah. “Whether it’s Montreal at Playground or here in Fallsview. It feels really good to be playing in your home country since there aren’t as many tournaments. So, I’m a little more motivated to play here.” The timing of his win couldn’t come at a better time for Leah. With the WPT Fallsview Main Event starting on Wednesday, Leah looks to keep his momentum going and win his first WPT Main Tour title by the week’s end. Leah believes that all good runs start with two things. “Momentum and confidence are really big factors in poker,” said Leah. “If you look at the year that Dan Colman had in 2014 and Anthony Zinno in 2015. Look at Fedor (.Holz) winning everything. Confidence is key because every time you do it, it makes it seems that much easier and attainable to do again. “Sometimes people think poker is hard and it’s hard to see yourself winning. But when you have confidence, you don’t get ahead of yourself. You don’t try and win a tournament in level one.” Regardless of the outcome in his next event, Leah is already getting excited at the idea of a three-peat in the CAD$1,100 event. “Even more so than this year,” said Leah about his motivation to win this event again in 2018. “I’m going to try and replicate the preparation, but to an extra degree. It’s just such an unheard-of thing to do to go through such big fields. It’s going to make me want to do it again that much more.”
  11. The 2019 PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker continued on Thursday, with another pile of tournaments coming to a conclusion and plenty of winners being crowned. Among those grabbing SCOOP titles with Thursday's action were Mike 'goleafsgoeh' Leah, Rui 'RuiNF' Ferreira, and Laszlo 'omaha4rollz' Bujtas. For Ferreira, it was his second title in two days. Ferreira was the biggest winner of the day, as he took home $224,007.51 in prize money for winning Event #45 (High): $5,200 Eight Max No Limit Hold'em High Roller. Ferreira topped a field of 245 entries to score the title. If you read yesterday's write-up, Ferreira was also in the winner's circle then, for taking the title in Event #39 High ($2,100 Six Max Limit Hold’em). Bujtas was also a big winner on the day, taking down Event #46 (High): $530 Six Max Pot Limit Omaha (w/rebuys) for $83,041.80. In that tournament, Bujtas topped a field of 216 entries. Leah defeated a field of 676 entries to win Event #44 (Medium): $109 HORSE for $12,675. Notable scores were had by Patrick 'pads1161' Leonard and Lex 'L. Veldhuis' Veldhuis, as well.

  12. One year ago, Gianluca 'Tankanza' Speranza emerged from relative obscurity to win the 2018 PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker Main Event for a little over $1.1 million. On Tuesday, he thrust himself further into the spotlight and etched his name in online poker history by doing it again. Speranza topped the 622-player field and earned $1,028,203.24 after agreeing to a heads-up chop - something he rejected last year on his way to an outright win. Runner-up 'OMGitshunt' banked $924,096.07 while third place finisher Dinesh 'NastyMinder' Alt won $604,383.49. Through both SCOOP Main Events, Speranza outlasted 1,276 players and won $2,161,363.27. There were 26 other SCOOP titles awarded on Monday. Ivan 'Negriin' Luca wrapped up Event #1 High ($215 No Limit Hold'em (Phase 2)) on top and earned $200,005.44. Sweden's 'ShipitFTW911' earned a win after chopping Event #61 High ($2,100 No Limit Hold'em) with Dietrich '2pacnrw16' Fast. 'ShipitFTW911' pocketed $197,703.45 while Fast had to settle for $165,913.61. Bengt 'pkrbt' Sonnert topped the 150-player field in Event #63 High ($10,300 Six Max Pot Limit Omaha Main Event) for $285,762.77. Runner-up 'luckykurac23' wound up with $249,662.23 after striking a heads-up deal with Sonnert. Mike 'SirWatts' Watson finished third for $176,128.20. Mike Leah became the 14th player to win two 2019 SCOOP titles. Other winners included 'lucascostaf', 'Shansovne415', 'Neanderthal4', 'TiltMeBig', 'clapjkspit', 'Kamikase1805', 'tonn22', 'Bashov', 'Tralllle', 'Kkidmoney', 'ShipitFTW911', 'Jack Wastes', 'jakobgold', 'tvtotallwin', 'PeiMaiPano93', 'hajardu', 'Jokerstar377', and 'gytmiyashiro'.
