Posted at 01:30 2012-05-13 by Mickey Doft

Day 6 of the 2012 Spring Championship of Online Poker (SCOOP) at PokerStars was a busy one with 15 tournaments on the docket. Twelve crowned champions and among them was Tim "TurnRiva" Marsters. Several notables came close with Jose "nachobarbero" Barbero, Shaun "shaundeeb" Deeb, William "Altrum Altus" Reynolds, and Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier all making final table appearances. Meanwhile, Igor "lechuckpoker" Kurganov is looking to add to a SCOOP title to go along with his PokerStars and Monte-Carlo® Casino European Poker Tour Grand Final High Roller title.

Four players punched their tickets to Day 2 with undefeated Day 1s and here were their paths to the final four:

“BriDge2PaiN”"VM47," "mikki696," "bestishngry," "Sc0ttyy," "Volanthn," Viktor "Isildur1" Blom 

"Shizzleness" was the first to punch a ticket through to the championship match, defeating Paul "paulgees81" Volpe. With a 3:2 lead, "Shizzleness" min-raised to 120 on the button. Volpe potted to 360, "Shizzleness" called, and an {A-Clubs}{Q-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds} flop fell. Volpe put out a continuation bet of 420, quickly receiving a call from "Shizzleness." When the {3-Diamonds} hit the turn, Volpe check-called 840. The {9-Clubs} river brought more of the same as Volpe check-called again, this time for his entire stack. "Shizzleness" tabled {Q-Clubs}{J-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}{3-Spades} for a flush, besting Volpe's {8-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}{2-Hearts} for a smaller flush.

Not long after, "kmpk90" defeated "BriDge2PaiN." The chips went in after a series of raises after the {K-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}{4-Hearts} flop. "BriDge2PaiN" tabled {A-Diamonds}{K-Clubs}{8-Hearts}{2-Hearts} for top pair and flush draw while "kmpk90" showed {6-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{3-Clubs}{2-Clubs} for a smaller flush draw, but also multiple straight draws. The {6-Clubs} turn filled one of those draws, as did the {8-Diamonds} river to set the championship match.

A deal was briefly discussed, but no agreement was reached. Slightly trailing, "Shizzleness" won a key hand en route to winning the match. On the button, "Shizzleness" raised. A call from "kmpk90" landed a {q-Diamonds}{5-Spades}{3-Spades} flop which "kmpk90" check-raised. A bet-call from "Shizzleness" resulted in the {7-Hearts} turn which "kmpk 90 bet at. "Shizzleness" called and upon seeing "kmpk90" check the river, "Shizzleness" shoved. A call from "kmpk90" revealed {A-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{5-Diamonds} for a set, but that was beat by the {6-Hearts}{5-Clubs}{4-Clubs}{3-Clubs} of "Shizzleness."

The match ended 23 hands later when on a board of {K-Clubs}{K-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}{J-Spades}{2-Spades}, "Shizzleness'" river bet led to an all-in call from "kmpk90" with {A-Diamonds}{K-Hearts}{9-Spades}{7-Spades} for three kings. "Shizzleness" turned over {J-Diamonds}{J-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}{4-Clubs} for jacks full of kings, winning the match and earning the SCOOP victory.

From a starting field of 939, eight players went undefeated on Day 1 to reserve the chance on Day 2 of earning the SCOOP victory. Only one of the eight would remain undefeated and that was "Krumpir." It was no easy task, but "Krumpir" defeated the 2011 WCOOP Main Event Champion Thomas "Kallllle" Pedersen to start, online beast Chris "Moorman1" Moorman in the middle, and Carter "devinr12" Gill to earn the triumph.

Entering the final table with the chip lead of Event 13-H was Aidan "whereisdonny" Tam thanks to this hand. A series of preflop raised led to "K_0_S_T_Y_A" being all in for about 32 big blinds with {K-Clubs}{K-Spades}. Holding {Q-Clubs}{Q-Hearts} and about double the stack size, Tam scored the elimination when the board ran out {A-Diamonds}{J-Hearts}{9-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds}{9-Spades} to set up the final table. Here was how they stacked up:

7Giuseppe “Ansgar2000″ Pantaleo115,205
8zugzwang1699,594
9Rory "Mafews" Mathews152,207

The first to fall was "zugzwang16" at the 3,500/7,000/875 level. Giuseppe “Ansgar2000″ Pantaleo shoved under the gun for 97,830 and "zugzwang16" re-raised all-in for less than an ante more. The rest of the table ducked out and "zugzwang16" tabled {J-Diamonds}{J-Spades} to Pantaleo's {Q-Spades}{Q-Diamonds}. The board rolled out {8-Hearts}{2-Hearts}{2-Clubs}{10-Hearts}{5-Hearts} to give the pot to Pantaleo, leaving "zugzwang16" with less than an ante before busting on the following hand.

A short-stacked "Fiskin1" was down to about four big blinds before shoving with {K-Clubs}{10-Spades} from the cutoff. Giuseppe “Ansgar2000″ Pantaleo called with {Q-Spades}{J-Spades} from the big blind and collected that pot as the board fell {J-Clubs}{J-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}{2-Clubs}, eliminating "Fiskin1" in eighth place.

The next elimination came in the form of a double at 4,000/8,000/1,000. It started when Aidan "whereisdonny" Tam opened to 16,560 under the gun. Josh "JBT449" Bergman called from the hijack, as did "ROSTBURK" from the cutoff. When action folded to Rory "Mafews" Mathews in the big blind, he jammed for 175,064. Tam folded over to Bergman who re-raised all in for 220,443. "ROSTBURK" called with a covering stack and revealed {J-Clubs}{J-Spades} which was well ahead of Bergman's {9-Clubs}{9-Hearts} and Mathews' {6-Hearts}{6-Spades}. The {A-Diamonds}{Q-Spades}{8-Clubs}{2-Clubs}{10-Spades} board brought no help to either, leaving only five players remaining.

"ROSTBURK" scored the next knockout as well, sending Ami "UhhMee" Barer to the rail. Aidan Tam opened to 16,560 in the cutoff and was called by Barer on the button. "ROSTBURK" squeezed from the small blind to 51,500, which folded action back to Barer. He proceeded to jam for 340,203 with {K-Diamonds}{Q-Spades} and "ROSTBURK" looked him up with {10-Hearts}{10-Spades}. Nothing helpful came for Barer as the board ran out {6-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}{2-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{A-Hearts}.

Things didn't slow down for "ROSTBURK" just yet. At 5,000/10,000/1,000, Giuseppe “Ansgar2000″ Pantaleo four-bet shoved for 216,412 after opening from the cutoff. "ROSTBURK," who had three-bet from the small blind, called with {7-Diamonds}{7-Hearts} and defeated {Q-Spades}{J-Spades} when the {A-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds} board didn't help Pantaleo.

Three-handed play began with "ROSTBURK" holding 1,604,490 to "WushuTM's" 502,452 and Aidan "whereisdonny" Tam's 397,608. It lasted for about an hour and 20 minutes before "WushuTM" busted in third. At the 7,000/14,000/1,750 level, "ROSTBURK" opened to 30,800 from the small blind and "WushuTM" re-raised all in from the big blind for 269,478. "ROSTBURK" called with {6-Hearts}{6-Clubs}, racing against the {A-Spades}{K-Clubs} of "WushuTM." The board ran out a safe {10-Spades}{7-Hearts}{3-Clubs}{2-Clubs}{5-Spades} for "ROSTBURK," giving the Swede five straight eliminations entering heads-up play with more than a 2:1 chip lead.

The match went back and forth with Tam grabbing the lead, but in the end, "ROSTBURK" emerged victorious. On the final hand at 10,000/20,000/2,500, Tam opened to 41,500 on the button. "ROSTBURK" popped it to 102,500 from the big blind, Tam called, and an {A-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}{3-Spades} flop followed. A bet of 81,500 from "ROSTBURK" was called by Tam, leading to the {8-Spades} turn. "ROSTBURK" slowed down and checked, calling when Tam bet 142,000 to see the {6-Spades} river. Another check from "ROSTBURK" led to another bet from Tam. This one, though, was all-in for 880,830. There was no decision from "ROSTBURK" who called quickly and tabled the nuts, {A-Spades}{5-Spades}. Tam's move with {Q-Hearts}{9-Spades} fell short, but he still earned an excellent pay day of $140,280.

"ROSTBURK" owned the final table to the tune of $190,380.

Here is how the final table stacked up:

7Andrey "Kroko-dill" Zaichenko117,731
8Anders "Donald" Berg53,342
9Borys31354,842

Eliminated from the final table in ninth place was Vincent "Vingtcent" Van Der Fluit. Short on chips, Van Der Fluit committed his stack following a {10-Hearts}{7-Clubs}{6-Spades} flop with {J-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}{3-Spades}{2-Spades}. He faced off with "rdmr" who tabled {A-Clubs}{K-Clubs}{10-Spades}{5-Hearts}. The {3-Clubs} hit the turn, hurting Van Der Fluit's chances of winning with a low and when the {7-Spades} landed on the river, "rdmr" scooped the entire pot.

Things can go south quickly in limit and that was the case for start-of-final-table chip leader Andrey "Kroko-dill" Zaichenko. The last of his chips got into the pot with {A-Hearts}{Q-Clubs}{6-Hearts}{2-Spades} against two other players. He wasn't able to best "Lyndon360's" {K-Hearts}{K-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}{4-Hearts} as the board came down {K-Diamonds}{9-Spades}{2-Diamonds}{K-Spades}{7-Diamonds}.

Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier fell next in quite brutal fashion as both he and "Borys313" had excellent hands on the {Q-Hearts}{J-Diamonds}{7-Spades}{2-Diamonds} board. A series of bets and raises on the turn revealed {A-Hearts}{K-Diamonds}{J-Spades}{7-Diamonds} for "Borys313" — two pair with a flush draw. Grospellier tabled {A-Diamonds}{Q-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}{3-Diamonds} for a better two pair, better flush draw, and a low draw as well. However, "Borys313" made a full house as the {J-Hearts} spiked on the river, ending Grospellier's run.

The next to go was "rdmr" after a battle with Paul "paulgees81" Volpe. Much of "rdmr's" stack was in preflop and the rest after the {9-Diamonds}{4-Spades}{4-Hearts} flop with {A-Hearts}{A-Clubs}{J-Spades}{6-Spades}. Volpe loved that flop with {A-Spades}{K-Spades}{7-Hearts}{4-Clubs} and his trips held through the {J-Clubs} turn and {10-Diamonds} river. However, Volpe went on a dry spell in the aftermath of that hand and busted next. Betting and representing the entire way down on a {10-Spades}{6-Spades}{5-Clubs}{J-Hearts}{4-Spades} board, his {K-Hearts}{K-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{3-Clubs} fell to "Lyndon360's" {A-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}{2-Hearts}{2-Diamonds} when "Lyndon360" made the nut low and a straight on the river.

Kristian "CharismA3" Martin departed in fourth place, surviving as the short stack for a little before getting chopped up. The board read {J-Hearts}{6-Spades}{3-Clubs}{8-Hearts}{10-Diamonds} and Anders "Donald" Berg took the high with {A-Spades}{J-Spades}{J-Clubs}{6-Clubs} for top set, while "Borys313" took the low with {A-Clubs}{A-Hearts}{4-Spades}{2-Hearts}. Berg, though, fell in third place. On his final hand, he got it in with {A-Clubs}{J-Hearts}{4-Hearts}{4-Clubs}. The {9-Hearts}{9-Spades}{2-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}{Q-Clubs} board offered no help to Berg and he was beat by the {A-Spades}{Q-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{5-Hearts} of "Borys313."

"Lyndon360" held a slight lead to begin heads-up play, but that didn't stop "Borys313" from putting up a fight and eventually taking it down. On the final hand, "Lyndon360" had little choice but to get it in with {J-Diamonds}{6-Spades}{5-Spades}{2-Hearts} against the {Q-Clubs}{J-Hearts}{7-Hearts}{2-Diamonds} of "Borys313." The board rolled out {Q-Spades}{10-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}, putting no qualifying low on the table and giving the pot to "Borys313" with queens to secure the victory.

The first to depart was "dirty.brasil" after shoving nine big blinds with {10-Spades}{10-Hearts} from early position. "Dajvey" gave him action from middle position with {A-Hearts}{Q-Spades} and collected the pot as the board came down {A-Spades}{K-Hearts}{5-Spades}{Q-Clubs}{K-Clubs}. "Ky3He4uKKK" fell shortly thereafter, getting it in for five big blinds with {A-Spades}{5-Hearts} against the {4-Hearts}{4-Clubs} of William "Altrum Altus" Reynolds. A {K-Spades}{9-Hearts}{3-Spades}{10-Clubs}{4-Hearts} board was all she wrote for "Ky3He4uKKK," out in eighth place.

Pascal "Pass_72" LeFrancois became the seventh-place finisher, running his five-big-blind stack with {K-Clubs}{9-Hearts} from the hijack into the {Q-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts} of "Dimadu" on the button. An {A-Clubs}{J-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}{4-Clubs} board missed LeFrancois. "Dajvey" bid adieu a few hands later in a battle of the blinds. A 15-big-blind shove with {K-Spades}{4-Clubs} from the small blind was met with a call from "B00mslang" in the big blind with {A-Clubs}{10-Clubs}. A {10-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{5-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{10-Spades} board only helped "B00mslang" improve to end "Dajvey's" run.

"WushuTM," simultaneously at the Event #13-H final table with three remaining, fell from both events in a two-minute span. Here, "B00mslang" jammed from the small blind with the bigger stack and "WushuTM" called all in for roughly seven big blinds holding {A-Clubs}{10-Hearts}. "B00mslang" tabled an inferior {K-Clubs}{9-Spades}, but the board delivered help in the form of {K-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{J-Hearts} to eliminate "WushuTM" in fifth place. "Dimadu" felt "B00mslang's" wrath just a few hands later, unable to win a race with {A-Clubs}{8-Spades} against the {6-Clubs}{6-Spades} of the latter.

William "Altrum Altus" Reynolds fell in third place, also at the hands of "B00mslang." From the small blind, "B00mslang" shoved with a covering stack and Reynolds called all in for about 14 big blinds with {A-Clubs}{4-Spades}. "B00mslang" had him dominated with {A-Spades}{9-Clubs} and put an end to his tournament when the board ran down {9-Spades}{8-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}{A-Hearts}.

Holding about 3:1 chip lead, "B00mslang" agreed to look at numbers for a deal with Frederik "Fred_Brink" Jensen. They discussed for a few minutes, but ultimately could not come to terms. When the cards were back in the air, it took four hands for "B00mslang" to close it out. On the button, "B00mslang" opened with about a min-raise. Jensen shoved from the big blind for about 15 big blinds with {A-Spades}{2-Hearts} and was met with a call from "B00mslang" holding {A-Hearts}{6-Spades}. The chances for a chop diminished quickly as the flop came down {A-Clubs}{8-Hearts}{6-Clubs} giving "B00mslang" aces up. The {3-Spades} turn and {5-Spades} river ended it, notching the win for "B00mslang."
