The German grinder topped the 578-player field in Event #6 (High) to win $86,825.67 after agreeing to a chop with fellow German 'Succeeed' and Dutchman 'Dhr. Aweseome'. Coming in fourth in the $1,050 buy-in event was former #1-ranked player Patrick 'pads1161' Leonard. 'Deividas K', the #11-ranked player in Luthuania, toko down Event #6 (Medium) for $38,710.64 - the largest score of his career.

Former #1-ranked Calvin 'cal42688' Anderson won a record-breaking ninth PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker title on Day 6 of SCOOP and catapulted himself into the top spot on the overall series leaderboard. Anderson came into the day's play already holding a record eight SCOOP titles, but by the end of it, he had made that number nine by winning Event #19 (High) for $126,659. After 335 entrants had departed the $2,100 buy-in field, the final three of Anderson, Aaron Been and David 'dpeters17' Peters went to battle. Peters, fresh off the back of his fourth-place finish at the EPT Monte Carlo Main Event for $280,770, was the first to depart taking away $67,143 for third place, leaving Been the only man standing between Anderson and a ninth SCOOP title. However, Been, who has eclipsed over $3.8M in online tournament earnings, was unable to stop the formidable Anderson from achieving the accolade as the American claimed another six-figure score exactly a year to the day after his last, which came during the 2017 SCOOP series. Anderson's victory propels him to the top of the overall SCOOP leaderboard, overtaking Roman Romanovsky, in a race that will see the winner receive the trophy and a much coveted PokerStars Platinum pass to next year's PCA worth over $30,000. Elsewhere on Day 6, The UK's Jon 'luckyfish89' Clark also achieved quite a remarkable feat after taking down Event #18 (High) for his third 'Thursday Thrill' title in just over eight weeks. The SCOOP special edition 'Thrill' tournament featured a massive $1m guaranteed prize pool with 1,344 entrants all looking for the first-place prize. But it was the former Sunday Million runner-up Clark who went the distance after beating Oscar 'owilson25' Ramirez heads-up, to claim his first SCOOP title and a prize of $104,935. Canada's 'D PitcherAK' won $51,979 for coming through a 7,334 player field in the Event 18 (Medium) Mini Thursday Thrill. 'MarioDutraJR' took the silver medal for $35,971 and 'Whatzaq' took $24,894 in third. Jon 'LUFCBas' Spinks finished in a very respectable fourth-place in the mammoth Event #18 (Low) 19,648 player field. The two-time Sunday Warm-Up champion received $3,636 for his efforts as 'rawacha' took the title for $9,797. PokerStars online-pro Jaime Staples made an appearance at the Event #17 (Low) final table, with the well-known Twitch steamer securing a fifth-place finish for $1,461. 'RunGodLike' was the eventual champion for $6,201 after they beat 'Stoffers1' heads-up, who took $4,320 for second place. 'villepn' won $13,701.09 and Rui 'RuiNF' Ferreira secured $48,271 for winning Event #17 (Medium) and Event #17 (High) respectively. Ferreira was able to come through a final table which featured online phenomenon Victor 'Isildur1' Blom, who exited in sixth-place for $12,876.67 Ramiro 'ramastar88' Petrone, ($57,321), 'WhoAreYoux1' ($39,938) and Alberto 'bertotraste' Novoa ($27,828) made up the top three in Event #19 (Medium), as world no.#10 Petrone secured his first SCOOP title. 'GodOf.com' beat 'karas1926' to victory in Event #19 (Low) and jumped to the top of the SCOOP Low Leaderboard. The win earns them $21,995, with the runner-up taking $15,319. Event #23 saw three 5-Card NLO Six-Max Turbo tournaments take place with 'BigTreeStump' taking down the $530 (High) for $29,791.'Foxy1029' turned $55 into $10,512 in the (Medium) tournament after they negotiated a final table that included current world no.#1 'C. Darwin2', who finished in sixth place. The final three players agreed to a deal before 'Foxy1029' became the last player standing. And in the final result on Day 6, 'SFARRRR' took the Event #23 (Low) win for $3,277 after seeing off 'jogrepiria' ($2,180.14) in second, and 'schmidt88888' ($1,963.11) in third after once again a three-handed deal was made.
